Track Name: Sub Rosa
Somethings wrong
if you’re not already paranoid
your every thought
recorded and stored away
death plotters plot death
in a sunken apartment somewhere near
every on switch is switched on
for the safety of everyone

the computer knows you
better than you do
no words are forbidden
but you can’t just say anything

guess who’s creeping
seems like everyone
whats that leaking
all of our fears

sub rosa in the open
sub rosa in the open
sub rosa

we’ve read whats in store
they want to destroy the world
if life's simulated
hey man, whats the difference
the future’s already here
the future’s already here
and do you even care
and do you even care

guess who’s creeping
seems like everyone
whats that leaking
all of our fears


sub rosa in the open
things are only gonna get crazier

Track Name: Start Making Sense
my head's stuck in texas
you know
seems so much easier
to be alone

i cannot be with someone
who cannot be by themselves
i need to be alone
to figure this out

someone
get me out of this place
and this land aint made
for no man
no no no
you dont make sense anymore
no she dont

i pressed you up a second key
you lost it in the second week
i played my first show
you were too busy to go

whats a texas boy in new york
if he cant go and pursue
unless you start making sense again
get me away from here

i want to know us when we're old
i know we're supposed to grow old
Track Name: Thinking Too Loud
its not hip to be square
leave your leather to the biker
whats it anymore to be normal
im running towards something simpler

running with a business of ferrets
she lost her fearlessness
are we losing to convention
feedback looping over again

lonely but not alone
lonely but not alone
im near a stranger
thinking too loud

the body is a block of noise
the body is a block of noise
people are attractive
but they are a distraction

go ahead
go ahead a fib
go ahead a fib through your smile
stop giving in
to a trend
theres only you
and nothings waiting
waiting

give me one hundred miles
to shake off the talk of the population
im alone but not alone here
im alone but not alone here
Track Name: Out of Bed
im on a power trip today
gonna take whats right in front of me
ill fix myself in midlife crisis
and let me tell you what my problem is

why does anyone get out of bed
why do you
unless you have to
why do you
unless you have to

im working like all the time
loose ends always to be tied
midlife crisis is passing me by
and im not answering any of my questions

why does anyone get out of bed
why do you
unless you have to
why do you
unless you have to

why do you do what you do
when youre doing it

im all out of control
my head's screwed on wrong
i could blame my parents
i'll tell you what my problem is or
ill have another affair
ill have another
i wont tell anyone where im going
ill buy another car
ill buy another
ill drive a thousand miles
i dont care

i get out of bed and wreck myself again
i get out of bed and wreck myself again
Track Name: Frog Logic
what am i gonna find out
theres a frog in a bog
who claims to be god
i hear he croaks a big show
yeah, he knows everything there is to know
he'll levitate your mind
he does it all the time

how can you find out
what you never find out
what do i believe
a spirits something you cant see

she says she feels
a higher power
she says she feels
theres got to be something out there
but how can you be so sure

how can you find out
what you never find out
what do i believe
a spirits something you cant see

the frog is a man
atop a mountain
pacify your life
pacify your mind
and i believe what i can see
and i think logically
and i know
what i only know
Track Name: Riding Past 10
this is the end
time to begin
to tend
to anything
anything else
this is the end
this is the end
this is the end
