Track Name: Monster in the City
There's a monster in my city tonight
He plunder thru the buildings and he's blocking out the light
There's a downward spiral in his eyes
He's beyond any reason and he might even be high
So you'd better heed that vampire
Just get down under the table
Hope and pray for your life
You realize now you've seen him twice
For what is he doing in this deep dark time?

Mummy mummy mummy, buddy
where do you go
Wrapped up in all that madness, misery and death and woe
Intruder through my buddha - that's my new Van Gogh
Smash and crash and dash and bash everything I love and know
Is it jealousy, nihlism or pain
What do it take to exterminate your hate down the drain
You need a hobby or some good food
I'm feeling your behavior is really really rude

Monster in the City
Not looking very pretty
The dark skies live in you
The sun seems to have died
And the flowers turn black to spite you
Is no one on your side?
Track Name: Technology is Fucking with Me
Technology is fucking with me

Mother Fucker

File not found, bad serial number
the problem could be this, that or the other
Throw your preferences in the trash
You don't have the correct version of flash

Pinwheel
Hourglass

Incompatible...oh you've got the wrong cord
You should've gotten Firewire
Up your RAM to the sky
Buyer beware of the virus out there
You need more protection
Need to be more scared....

Just tell me what I need to know

Where does the signal go?

Failure. Mode. Effect. Analysis.

Update this. Update that
Take off my artiste
Put on my engineer hat.
Track Name: Critical Eye
The day destroys the night
I think I'm getting to the surface
You hit it too true, Dr. Loo,
When you said that I deserve this
Messy mind, negative I
See your hatred all implied
Need to watch who's hill I climb
Evil peaks or sideline blind

The night divides the day
And I drink some poison to conform
Chemical light, a skin so tight
Under uneasy gaze we unite

Plastic smiles
Travelled miles
Over- styled
Faked a try
Critical Eye
Critical Eye
Critical Eye
Critical Eye
Track Name: Knight of Rods
Knight in shining armor got you all on fire
He's fiery and flashy
Think you just might die
He don't think about it
He just goes
He's got your head spin spinning
You just don't know

Caught up in hurricanes
The best and the worst
Playing in tornadoes
And landing in dirt

Emotional flooding
Waterlogged
Look back and realize
Last year was a blur

You can't turn him down
Cuz then you'll feel like a snob
Your knight in shining armor ain't got no job
Turning into yawns all in time
The whole time you know that you stayed too long
He decides to take off and complete his knowing
And charges right past you
Where is he going?

Take over my mind
Blind my eyes
He turned my mind to jello
with a wave of his wand

Get your power back all in time
Your shining armor gleaming bright in sun
Here he comes again
Circle done
Race that fucker to the finish line

Take over my mind
Blind my eyes
He turned my mind to jello with a wave of his wand

Get your power back
Track Name: Eye
Undecided day after day
And now the tsunami's gonna wash me away
Not sure if I should bother to pray
He already came and got me today

Into the eye of the whirlpool
I'm not bored anymore
Into the eye of the whirlpool
Faster faster faster
Track Name: Smoking in America
Manuscripts of cello variations
Made me decide to go on vacation
You stay here, I'll be in Malaysia
Watching out for all the teenagers

High rate suicide
He didn't mean to die
He just wanted to try
It's just like smoking in America

Unknown sketches of the Scherzo
Painted rags thrown on the dirt floor
Works for piano cry for attention
Mad cause you forgot to mention
...it was just a little conversation
Between the doctor and the patient

High rate suicide
He didn't mean to die
Track Name: Math Part
Sun all shining
You all whining
Got to do the math part, dammit

Ears turning, ears burning, little bit of learning
Got to do the math part

Hittin' the sky with an elevator eye
Birds fallin' from the sky
Umbrella up dance
This guy that guy
One day they did something crazy
I heard all about it

Hittin' the sky with an elevator eye
Birds fallin' from the sky

Take it to the math part
Earth all quakin' the legs all shakin'
Kick it - start makin' what's not
Sun all shinin'
You all whinin'
Got to do the math part

Ready set, gonna start
Got to do the math part

Slow spin let it all come in
Lean in
Take it to the math part
