Track Name: deciBel - Subsistent
So caustic, and uncontrolled.
A human parasite - Corrosive.
Self subsistent to make it whole.
Consuming - Depleting all it knows.

Don't admit you envy me.
Can't you see I'm everything?
All the things you wanna be.
All the things you try..
All the things you'll never be...

Give it time and they will see right through you.
Give it time and anxiety consumes you.
Give it time and you will regret what you have said
Give it time and I will watch you break.

Dilute the verity by twisting words.
Assume defensive when the tables turned.
Build your fortress to protect your lies,
a place of solace for you to fume out.
Build those walls to keep the truth outside,
but in the end those walls will be your tomb.

Don't admit you envy me.
Can't you see I'm everything?
All the things you wanna be.
All the things you try..
All the things you'll never be...

Give it time and they will see right through you.
Give it time and anxiety consumes you.
Give it time and you will regret what you have said
Give it time and I will watch you break.

You act like me in fantasy.
You envy me in vanity.
I'm all you see you'll never be.
You can't compare one shred to me.
You try to be to copy me.
Spread your lies but they will see.
You're nothing but a fraud to be
exposed and left in misery.

The more you try and take it,
the more they see you fake it.
My lack of retort you've mistaken,
as someone week and taken.
I just know you can't win,
as long as I don't give in.
As long as I remain myself,
I know that's something...
You'll never be..
You know..
You know..
You'll never be.

Give it time and they will see right through you.
Give it time and anxiety consumes you.
Give it time and you will regret what you have said
Give it time and I will watch you break.
Track Name: deciBel - Vexation
Your vision is growing dim.
It's the source of my vexation.
With all your lies intertwined,
odds are you won't last long.
You're slipping to an all time low,
and still you won't admit that you're wrong.

You're life is now a soulless entry.
Dying with every heartbeat.
With all your lies intertwined,
you're standing in the high beams.
Pretending - ignorance is bliss.
While sifting through broken daydreams..
You're sifting through broken dreams.

All of your dreams are gone.
There's no one else to blame.
You've left this undone for to long.
Welcome to your ever-after.
All of you're dreams have come.
You've no one else to blame.
Why don't you just sing your song?
Embrace it with every ounce of your shame.

I know that you're smiling now,
but we both see what's underneath.
With all your lies intertwined,
making every action affront.
You're slipping to an all time low,
but I hope that you're waking up.
I hope that you're waking up..

(One day you wake up and see it's passed you by)

All of your dreams are gone.
There's no one else to blame.
You've left this undone for to long.
Welcome to your ever-after.
All of you're dreams have come.
You've no one else to blame.
Why don't you just sing your song?
Embrace it with every ounce of your shame.
Track Name: The Still Lifes - Future in Question
The best thing about the future is that it only comes one day at a time. In fact, the future is something which everyone reaches at the rate of sixty minutes an hour, whatever he does, whoever he is. Where there is no hope in the future, there is no power in the present for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today. If you want to know your past, look into you present conditions. If you want to know your future, look into your present actions. In times of change, learners inherit the Earth, while the learned find themselves beautifully equiped to deal with a world that no longer exists because change is the law of life. Those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future. We do not grow absolutely chronologocally. We grow sometimes in one dimension and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and the future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations. So, fear not for the future. Weep not for the past. Now is the accepted time, not tomorrow, not some more convenient season. It is today that our best work can be done and not some future day or future year. It is today that we fit ourselves for the greater usefulness of tomorrow. Today is the seed times, now are the hours of work, and tomorrow comes the havest and the play time.
Track Name: The Still Lifes - They Sent Us Their Dreams
Even before their exhausr contaminated our atmosphere
Long before their pox defiled and disunited our bodies
They sent us their dreams

Before they invaded our wombs and cleared a path for the generations to come
Before they lifted the veil to the undiscoverexd country and opened the door into summer
They sent us their dreams

We sang their songs and performed their plays
We redecorated and made this their home, their place
They infected us with their desires
They sent us their dreams

They looked to the past for us to provide them with our future
They analyzed our petrified remains and reasoned of themselves
The best way to gain their present was to hijack our dreams
They sent us their dreams

The most temporatry of our temporal existence
They injected us one by one with all manner of mental disease
So that we had no choice but to live out their fantasies
They sent us their dreams

Our lives sacrificed on the mechanized altar of progress
Each containing some spark o purpose culmination in their self fashioned future
They sent us their dreams

(They did this through a portal of perception mainlining the future).
Track Name: AllThisIsMeaningless - Gate 36
Meet me at gate 36

We could have a movie kiss

I will be there waiting for you

Coming in from London

I think that I've been missing something

Could it be that something is you?

And I will bring my guitar

We can make love in the park

Skipping stones and sinking sand

Play our song under the stars
My airliner will be coming in

It will arrive at 8am

It will be like our love was new

Are you the same girl I used to know?

It's been so long I had to go

So many nights of waking up without you

And I will bring my guitar

We can make love in the park

Skipping stones and sinking sand

Play our song under the stars
Track Name: AllThisIsMeaningless - Hospital Girls
Spending my days with hospital girls

That look in their eye as desperate pleas unfurl

The I.V. drips on a constant feed

The machines by their side keep a persistent beat

And maybe someday

We can go outside

Where the flowers still bloom

And patients won't die
The sick lights shine on cold marble skin

A sanitary mess and a morphine drip

Though sick in your veins and you can hardly breathe

Will your fake plastic heart ever learn to love me?

And 'til that day

I will stay by your side

'Til death do us part

My dying bride
It's ordinary, quite ordinary, my love

To each his own, and you are my own, my lovely dying girl

It won't be long to be on my own again

It's not extraordinary to move on again, my love

Please forgive me, I can't wait for you to live.
