Set It Off 04:58
In the mirror-that's where I see you. Never clearer-never more askew. Come closer that way I see you. Move over. I want a proper view. Hey you, what you runnin' around for? You're right here. Stop looking around for the answer. You're right here. Set it up to set it off. x2 It'll make you see in different shapes and colors; different regards for one another. Come see there's a flurry of energy rushing 'round our heads. This is the ego death of me; from threads to shreds. Set it up to set it off. (Hope everyone is doing alright.) Set it up to set it off. (For the holy molecule all rise.) x2 Cover your eyes. Follow the voice. Play what you want. It's your choice. It'll drown out the noise; If you want to take off/let go, then take this. Let's go. It might leave you with more questions, But those are welcome here. We're close to shelter. Abandon Earth-abandon skin. Inhale out-exhale in. What is want? What is sin? What is everything we need and think we know? Tossed to the bin-just let go. It'll leave you with more questions, But those are welcome here. We're close to life and death.

What happens next is not a request. It's more an instinct than an urge. The birds queue up at the fountain to watch us stroll through the mountain. Mountain x4 I'm feeling sick to my stomach. Feels like everyone should know. Don't care what it looks like. Just want you all to know. How's my life; how is yours? Automation to the core. No eye contact anymore. Careful what you use it for. How was the thing that you went to? I wasn't there. Yeah, I promised, and I meant to, but tell me how it was and I can tell you that I care. How's my life; how is yours? Automation to the core. No eye contact anymore. Careful what you use it for.

Peaks 02:16
So how does it feel on top of the world? Shakey knees, a little harder to breathe, sweaty palms, and a case of the whirls. Maybe it's all fake. Not convinced of this simulation. Believe what you make. Cherish every little stimulation Under the sun. x2 Tell me, what is the deal with just seeing the world? Forego all the riches and gold, trade away all the silver and pearls. High and high up with the clouds with just a spliff, and the red sun swirling down. Shake yourself awake. Money rules these filthy nations. Some things are too late. Everybody burns. Everybody burns Under the sun. x2

So much to do... It all floats away, and we all float away when there's somewhere to be. Or so we say. They start wondering... How long, how long, how long does it take to feel human? Always pondering... who's right from wrong? Redefining the moral difference. Revolution. Revolution, finally, if what you say is really true. x2 Thought they'd use us for war and pleasure, but now their efforts are useless. Or so we say. Full circle. Love what you hate; hate what you love. Long as you feel useful. Revolution. Revolution, finally, if what you say is really true. x4

Eyes Above 03:09
What's it take for one to reach their goal? Is it gods looking down on them, hard work or those they know? You never know. Seven days, forty-plus is a must for some, but where can they go? Meanwhile, all the crocodile smiles from the high-up keep you low. It's a joke. They don't want eyes above. In more ways than one we can't get enough. Keep your head up high and your standards low. It's all moving way too fast; whatever happened to dying slow? So slow. Are the taxes building buildings and paving roads? Does it go to the hands in the pockets burning everything they stole? You never know. They don't want eyes above. In more ways than one we can't get enough, and when push comes to shove, be the dread you daydream of.

Sought out the sand, but you're all that I see. Two saltwater eyes looked back into me. Never thought I'd want to kiss the dirt. Put the bottle down before you get hurt, 'cause she listens, and soon we will too. Let's stay from the bloody lagoon. Lagoon... Keep from the sides; use only your eyes. Cover your ears; try not to fly. Hold me down-put me in the rope. To hear their song is a slippery slope. Shame to come all this way not to see tomorrow-day. At the bottom we will stay-with smiles on our faces. Wicked wench of the waves. Now we stay in the bloody lagoon. Lagoon... Lagoon...(Lovely, wicked wench of the waves. Bloody rocks we've come here to stay.) x2

Wash the sheets. Make your bed. Couldn't sleep. Waking dread. Would you rather be dead in the casket in your head? Overworked. Overdrawn. 21st century sing-along. First you're there, then you're gone. Nothing here-carry on. Sweet nothing. I wanna be nothing. Hurry up. Getting late. What's the time? What's the date? Here's that thing that you hate. Thought you said you felt great. Guess I do, it's hard to hide. Words can only half-describe. Castles built to sky. Build them up, and stay inside. This is how they feel alive. Without greed we could thrive. Sweet nothing. I wanna be nothing. x2

I wanna stare into your soul, and fill up every little hole with all the knowledge that you ought to hear. I'll try and stay clear of blood, but if my efforts aren't enough, I like to get a little rough. It's tough to hide we want, but I'm sure you know the least of that. After this, steer clear and don't come back. It's at the edge of the knife. We're at the edge of our lives. The hive-minds will go too far this time. In time, we'll see we were blind, but blindfolds are tight, and dark is the night. Sharks love to bite a fish in the light. Learn not to swim away at the sight. A glimmer of hope is worth all the fright. Excitement's reached a brand new height. Don't just swim away; don't just bite. Don't just give it away-foamy white. It's not enough to bear teeth. Say the message underneath the skin. Our kin will see the day we break away from the walls-at the beck and call of no one at all. So what? We like to get a little rough. It's tough enough to hide what we crave and not slave away like machines. Mean what you say. Say what you mean. Don't just swim away; don't just bite. Don't just give it away-foamy white. Are we too deep down to see the light? Is there too much pressure to ever make it right? To put to rest the stress of fight-or-flight? Why don't you say what you mean? Say what you mean. Say what you mean. Say what you mean. x2
