Track Name: Clean
One time I ran I had a dream I was alive
I looked at my self, I saw through my hand
I found organic bones
They turned to stainless steel
Pressurize me, I'm titanium
Galvinize me, I will never, never corrode

Clean again, I'll be awake, I'll never rest
Free again, Now that I'm machine I will be clean

I had an image of my veins and my heart
It beat too fast, my arteries ached
I saw my eye in the mirror
Blood turned to mercury
Cauterize me, I'll regenerate
Electrify me, my brain will oscillate
Track Name: Divine
It was a rainy day
Her umbrella matched her hair
I saw eyeliner
We locked eyes
She's a salt mine
My eyes water to see her
She's space heater
Made me feel warm

She is divine
Eyes are a crime
She is she

She stepped in a puddle
Got dirt on my white pants
As she said she's sorry
I asked her for coffee
She's an oboe
Loud for her size
She's nuclear waste
Gives me powers
Track Name: Hero
I propose a new type of hero
One who is smart
I never gave much truck to
those who think with their heart

I know I'm a brain man
I think with my mind
I always thought logic was
The root of all truth

is a power struggle
His thoughts
are his tools

Cause Everything that I had earned was all because of knowledge
I know the only kind of might that's right is skill

This hero is not a rebel
He does not hate the system
In fact he loves it
Because he owns it

My hero is the man on top
He is the man
He is the business
He has the knowledge

is a power struggle
His tools
are his thoughts
Track Name: Be a Man, Go to the Gym
What makes a man? It's the testosterone
Going to the Gym, increases testoseterone
Girls, like hormones
Working out, makes more hormones

I must be a man
I must be a man, I will go to the Gym

I, know a guy who can't bench the bar
He gets no women, because he has no testosterone
I, know a guy who gets all the girls
He benches 220, and has lots of testosterone
Track Name: I Feel Alive
Apathy is the devil
I want to be excited every day
When I live I can't hold back any more
I want to feel every way

Life was dull and ordinary
I wanted something more complete
When I found love I knew I could live

Cause when I feel
I feel alive

I am who I want to be
I know where I am with you
I want to improve my life even more
I know I need to understand

How could I be unhappy
If I know what I want
I'll take exactly what I need
Track Name: No Fear
It's nice, to be done with stress
I'm a better man now that I'm not losing time

I'll never be the same again
I will have no fear

Everything is easier
I thought life was hard before I began
Track Name: The Futurist
I looked into the future and I got my legs replaced at 82.
When I couldn't sing any more I got my tongue replaced too.

I will never die

I looked at the lifeline on my left palm and it was broken in two.
That is where living stops and death ends too.
Track Name: In a Better Place
I never counted the gravel in the street
I never felt my shoes as I walked
I never watched cracks in the wall
I never thought about the smell of cold

Panic, is a hell of a drug
Just need to change

I never noticed the grain on wood
I never saw the spectrum of the sun
I never smelled books on shelves
I never heard my heart beat
Track Name: Logic
I know that you're sane
I know that you're pretty
I know that you're smart
I know that you're good

There was a time
When your hair reflected the sun
There was a blue sheen
It was almost pretty to me

I want to want you, but I don't
You're the kind I would marry when I'm old
You'd be good for me, me for you
I can't love you with logic

I see that you love me
Pupils dilate
Mine do not
I'm just horny

I paid for dinner
Because I needed to
You thought I cared
How romantic
Track Name: I Want Them All
To chose
between the two
most beautiful women in the world
is a crime

I want them all

They're like two facets
of the perfect girl
between brains and affection
I rule the world

Why should one
confine himself
to just one of the best
women in the world

I love them both
don't confuse their names
but if a third woman comes to me
then I'm game
Track Name: Wasting My Time
Her hips move like a hurricane
She unrefined, she's sugarcane
Sometimes she's unruly and has no shame
I can't tell, I don't know if it's real

I want to know

I want to know that I'm not wasting my time anymore

I've failed many times before
I want to know that she's not a whore
but when I see her, she's the one I adore
I can tell, I know that it's real
Track Name: Strong
Let's break free and all go to heaven
I can't wait to get back home
I know all possibilities are even
I just need to find a door

I don't know if I can fake love anymore
I don't know if I'll be lucky

I will be strong forever
I know that I can't, know that I won't, lose vision

There is this place I go to in the evening
All of my stress just goes away
I can not tell if I'll be perfect
Or if I am already there

I know that I can't have any discrepancies
If I'm gonna be a prophet
Track Name: New Businessman
Tried to be a man
Trained to be a dick
Thought it would get me far with money
Ands, nots, and ors
People are all bores
I just want all the money

All that I could ever find
There is no logic
In being kind

I, I am the MAN!

I like being happy
Others can be sad
I will be happy all the time
I only see
People who want to be me
I have all of the money
Track Name: Burn Out
I used to be patient
Now sitting makes me cramped
Every minute I'm not working
Is a minute someone else is

To Breathe
To Feel
To Touch
To Sense

I'd rather live and burn out
Than not live at all

I tried listening to Henry Thoreau
Instead I listened to King
If you have nothing to die for
You have nothing to live for
