Track Name: Godzilla
Turn your head
It's rising from the sea
Say something
I'll throw it all away
Track Name: Solid State
When they said jump
You didn't even mind
You weren't concerned about how high
How high

And they said fall
You fell down to die
Nobody concerns themselves with how
How or why

It's a solid state we find ourselves in

Now, it came to pass
Nobody ever thought it would last
So who gets the last laugh
Who gets to laugh

It's a solid state we found ourselves in

Now, everyone knows
Everyone knows it goes to show
It goes to show

When they said jump
You didn't even mind
You weren't concerned about how high
How high

We find ourselves in now
Track Name: Skeleton
You've been carrying all this weight
You can't walk it off
Like a big, big fire
To a helpless moth
It's all you want

Skeleton
Born to die
Your misery takes the shape
Of the thing that you love the most

It's a hell of a way to spend your day
Turn your clothes to cloth
You are now defined
By that which you are not

Skeleton
Born to die
Your misery takes the shape
Of the thing that you love the most
Like a guest who turns into the host

Skeleton
Born to die
Track Name: Little Space
Leave a little space
For your insults to land
I cleared a little space
And freed my hands

Until it's all of me

Keep a little space
For your insults to hide
Holes in my skin
Keep them alive

Until it's all of me

The smaller the target is
The harder to hit it and
You target me enough
So I'll get smaller
Track Name: Capitalist Love
I want a capitalist love
Pays the bills with a little left over
I want to borrow against it
Leverage it for future gains
Pretend I'm not a creature living in this body

Math
Is good
CM Prime

Don't look now but we are creating a lot of value
And the vested interest coming out ahead
Don't look now but we are expecting a little value
And the vested interest coming out ahead

Math

Commoditize the good times and
Monetize the bad
Let it go without losing
The way my skin just falls away
When I'm done using it
Track Name: Blacken
Fold me in black
Place me in black
Fill me with black
Blacken me out

Ask me black questions and blacken the answers
Blackening quickening faster and faster
Black sails on black waters black sons and black daughters
Blackening happening black is my master

Everything happening here
Is happening between my ears

Ask me black questions and blacken the answers
Blackening quickening faster and faster
Black sails on black waters black sons and black daughters
Blackening happening black is my master
Track Name: Separate / Weak
Separate bank accounts to get you through the weekend
Separate bedrooms for the weak
All I ask is that you tell me where you're going
And call me when you leave

So you took it on yourself to make him happy
Is that your place to be
When you sat down and imagined how it could be
Was that your fucking dream?

Make your introductions, exit from the city
And make yourself a home
Make your money make your family make your exit
And now you're free to roam

Separate bank accounts to get you through the weekend
Separate bedrooms for the weak
Take your time and ask your petty little questions
And do the same for me

That's the trouble with relying on a person
They never stay the same
After all that you have seen and done and been through
You know you've fucking changed
