I am an electronic parrot Squawking at the world wide sky Feeding on the conduit Of the group mind Scrolling through an endless screen Of ones and zeroes Disguised as stories Ideas   It's all hard to imagine So I don't   I am an electronic parrot Squawking at the world wide sky Through a wired trachea An electrified cage Repeating the abyss And sharing the void   Now is the time Time is running out

I don't wanna sing any songs About getting older The future's written in all caps And I'm just a palm tree swaying Swaying in a hurricane Life is a stifling storm And I stay static in this pouring rain And I'm just a palm tree swaying Swaying in a hurricane Just waiting for the eye Time flies all the time But this time it flew by fast as hell And I'm just a palm tree swaying Swaying in a hurricane Color me high in a long standing tradition Of remember whens and maybe coulda beens I'm just a palm tree swaying Swaying in a hurricane Waiting for the eye What if the present never happens? And time collapses on me? I'm just laying down Not really dead But the vultures fly over head And it's hard to see the future With all this shit in my eye

Aging Sound 04:02
Hello Dr. so and so I guess it's been a long time Since I thought about this body That I drag around every day So will I get what I deserve? Or will I get what I am after? After all is said and done After I get my just desserts I liked yesterday But yesterday is already gone It's the aging sound And the loneliness feels comfortable I tried on the devil's raincoat Fits real good in the waist But I'll still take a raincheck On a summer's day So will I get what I deserve? Or will I get what I am after? Rock is a young man's game And an old man's curse It's the aging sound And the loneliness feels comfortable It seems pretty hard to explain You'll never be younger than you are right now And that's gonna change

Down here On these city streets I drink a couple of beers Stay away from the crowds Walk home and I go to sleep Cuz it won't be long Until I can feel the heat I watch the bungled and the botched Climb up the ladder To the top While an invisible hand Pushes you along And I walk on a wire Of self desire and a fate That's dead and gone But I feel the ocean I feel it right inside of my hand But I can't see the fire See it right down beside me Moving to The dead museums That surround this town You're only young in the city For a couple of years 'Til you eat the shit they're feeding And you drag this body Up and down the stairs And through the stares Into a meaningless sky To a postcard skyline I feel the ocean I feel it right down inside of my hand But I can't see the fire See it right down beside me But I'm trying to relax on my porch In this city I'm trying to relax

Chemicals Come take me over I'm in a state of unrest Can't you see I'm ripe unclean I need some quick relief In the middle of a black hole city I learned 60 ways to tie a tie 1000 more to live a lie To get one hoof in the door Dropped into the lion's cage With a broken nose and leg Covered in gentlemen's blood You're at the top of the bottom of the barrel Now you're just a dog Eating your own shit With the marshmallow boys And their tattoo trust fund Tangerines And california plates We should take some time And talk it over Take some time to talk it through Cuz I know what you're thinking I'm in a state of unrest Sometimes life takes too long Whatever happened to you?

Future Home 04:18
Oh future home A nice place to grow old Everybody wants their own Piece of the pie And I'll get mine
7.
Gonna all be mine Gonna eat the mountains Gonna swallow trees I am a death machine Gonna shake the hands of many teens Keep my conscience clean Sit back relax while I follow through It'll give me somethin to do Watch me as I shake the many hands That's Mr. President to you

Magic Waters 02:37
I lost my keys And I don't know where they are I got another set But I lent them to a friend I don't remember who the friend was I'm gonna be so much later now Later than I already was before Magic Waters
9.
Here comes the future And it's carrying something in its arms Could be a lucky break But it's hard to make it out from this distance He enjoys the clock He enjoys the comforts Most have been deprived There's a path to find There's a path of least resistance And you cut me right down Right down to size I didn't even ask you to cut me at all There's 24 hours in a day that I miss you It's like spitting in the ocean Or a blind man's grave I'm glad you're gone
10.
Euphoria 06:46
What kind of heaven Have I stumbled into? Can I stay here for a while? Can you stay here too? It's in my past It's in my brain if I'm honest There is no message Or messenger comin' home And your guesses fill the air 'Til your last moment Or until your mouth fills up with dirt Make no mistake We change We change We change And then we die
