Track Name: Zero
a drink of rum
on the gun
you can't look me in the eye
happiness
my memories
said you always seemed so shy
we're second rate
but that's okay
the drink is in my hand
i want to make it through
if i have a choice
can i draw the card of chance

never seem to win but i always play the game
it's my continual fold, bitter and insane
so they saw it, my cards all laid out neat
it's not hard to pick apart, pull away the pieces

so i socialize
communicate
the things i see in dreams
this ashtray cityscape
mother nature's shame
apocalyptic scheme
she was a singer
pins in my heart
pulled me apart
after the battle
met up front line
which was the end and the start

never seem to win but i always play the game
it's my continual fold, bitter and insane
so they saw it, my cards all laid out neat
it's not hard to pick apart, pull away the pieces
Track Name: LSD
into the mountains
falling from the sky
you can see the ground grow closer
as the down kills the high
i can follow your direction
it leads me closer to the floor
i can make a new exception
of what came before

when i was high i was high
when i was high i was high
when i was high i was high
when i was high

high

they came back to forget you
couldn't even remember
what it was they wanted
on a day in november
i hear it's raining bullets
better get to bed
it's peaceful under cover
your blanket full of lead

you know your land is gonna leave you dry
you know your love is gonna make you cry
you know your land is gonna leave you dry
you know your love is gonna make you cry
Track Name: Messed About
you've got blood on your sleeve
just wait out back, you'll get your stuff
eventually
there's nothing that bothers me
except for when i'm out of it
and in my head

high

messed about x 3

i don't know anymore
about anything or anyone
it's all gone
trail off with a few studders
what do you expect?
you arrogant fucking pig
do you know anything?

high

messed about x 3
Track Name: Four Leaf Clover
i'm taking it easy
for the next few days
isolation is where im gonna stay
dropped some acid
a couple nights ago
constantly grinning
why i don't know

that doesn't matter
what i want is bad
it's not your problem
but it still makes me sad

walking in circles
don't know where i'm going
so indecisive with every backward meaning
i'm going to sleep now
wake me up tomorrow
give me a drink and
happiness to borrow

i couldn't help it
time only flows one way
and if i could change it
i'd do it in a day

four leaf clover x4
Track Name: The Square
and i wonder what he sees
is it real or is it dream
if you pass him in the hall
would you say anything at all

he is a square
and he knows it
and he knows it
but he don't care
damaged spaced out stare
in the moment
in the moment
he's not there

and hes going out tonight
with a feeling hes not right
there's nothing that he can do
that you will not see right through

he is a square
and he knows it
and he knows it
but he don't care
damaged spaced out stare
in the moment
in the moment
he's not there
