Track Name: A Pickle For The Knowing Ones; or Plain Truths In A Homespun Dress
A Pickle For The Knowing Ones; or Plain Truths In A Homespun Dress
Track Name: Future History
I’ve always been a firm believer that everything is preconceived
I used to think I could see the world just like Jones did
So do you know what it’s like trying to bury you and your family
Under the floorboards of my polished memory?

The mute and the blind
(I couldn’t see and you didn’t mind)
The mute and the blind

I am selfish so it seems
It was just always meant to be
That I’d turn everything I love
Into my future history

The mute and the blind
The mute and the
Track Name: I'm Nucky Thompson. This Is Atlantic City
Hanging around upside down in this ghost town
Where everyone’s a well too shallow in which to drown
Diffidently, I measured every consonant and vowel
But you weren’t listening preoccupied with his manhood in your mouth

And I hate what I’ve become
You too but we’re not even
'Til I wipe his bloodline clean
Watch me be Nucky T

And I’m all layers but now I guess that I know my onion well
Enough to tell you can have this city of cyclops’s to yourself
Cause beige abrasion’s eating away at every fucking cell
And it’s not living if you’re sitting in a window seat in hell

And I hate what I’ve become
You too but we’re not even
'Til I fell his family tree
Watch me be human

Take me to that blameless vestal’s lot
Now whose forgiven by who forgot
I'd pray for sunshine but round here I am my own god
Track Name: Catholic Guilt
Mellifluous I try to be
Everyone to everything
Not quite a catholic but I feel the guilt
Cause my cause was my own good

Fall in love with every girl
Never as much as myself
Not quite a catholic but I feel the guilt
Cause my cause was my own good

And everyone’s an island
I’m the ocean
And I’m so thirsty I might
Engulf them
Cause I’m not sure if it’s greed
Or ambition
But I wont stop til I see
My reflection

My friend, my friend my body’s weak
Would you please bear my cross for me
(Papal perfect)
I lied, I lied but lying’s me
It comes so goddamned easily
(Papal perfect)
And I will thank what you’ve done for me
But I wont hesitate to sell you down the stream
(Papal perfect)

I think about what other people think
More than other people think
About what I think about
What other people think

I’m half a man
You’re half awake
Track Name: Two-Face
There’s only two sides to a coin
Either one you choose you’re gonna lose
There’s only two sides to my mask
Either one you see it wont be me

There’s always two sides to my face
There’s always two sides to my brain
Track Name: Us; or Optimism
If all is for the best in this the best of all worlds
I’d hate to see string theory or the multiverse

(In every, in every)
In every hypothetical
Past, present and future parallel
What’s real and what is fictional
In every world you’re every world

And I know you think that you’re better off alone
But I’ve seen what happens when I cultivate on my own

(In every, in every)
In every hypothetical
Past, present and future parallel
What’s real and what is fictional
in every world you’re every world

Now don’t you see
You’re a song to me
Like I told you you’d be
When you were sixteen
Track Name: The Hull vs The Hulk
Hello, I am the hulk
I live inside my skull
I’m sorry for what I’ve done
If I could save myself I’d save everyone

I’ve always been
A man of
Many moods
But never quite
The one my
Mind assumes

Wake up, I am the hulk
I’ll kill and consume what you love
And fake that these things I do I must
In this much you can trust

I’ve always been
A man of
Many moods
But never quite
The one my
Mind assumes

So am I the hull or am I the hulk?

(I have always been split in two
Between what’s right and what I do
And I’m not sure if anyone
Knows quite just what I have become)
Track Name: Kafkaesque
I, unbeknownst to my eye
Spent the last six years of my life metamorphosising into a fly
For a left handed hummingbird, who promised me the sun
And in return I pledged to her the contents of my lungs

And wishing on her wishbone
For forever and a day, but forever’s gone and now it seems forever far away
Since she, a loquacious one, stitched up the mouth that i once kissed
When my sacrifice turned meagre and was ultimately missed

So I don’t know how, when or why
But by the time I awoke it seemed like the sun would never again rise
Since she got caught in the silver and the seams
And I’d lost track of all our hopes and our dreams

I didn’t know what I was becoming
But I sure know what I became
Thanks for watching me cease to be man less a beast
When all it’d’ve taken was a word to awake me

Awake me
Awake me
Awake me
I can still fix this

Do you miss
Domestic bliss
I’ll fix this
I’m Kafkaesque

I wish I could wish you well
I wish I could
I wish I could
But I hope you go to hell
I hope you go
I hope you go
