Track Name: Not This Day
I have a taste for other worlds
I know these eyes are not my own
I'll come back down, I'll sink down low
I'll turn to fire, I'll turn to stone

So I'll just jabber in this closet
Throw some ink up on the page
I will study this unfolding
Mark my progress, note the stage
Declare with clinical precision
I'm no danger to myself at all
Not this day
Not at all
Not this day

I have a taste for other worlds
I know these eyes are not my own
I'll come back down, I'll sink down low
I'll turn to fire I'll turn to stone
I transubstantiate without
Holding myself up to the sky
I know today is just as good
As any other day to die

I overblow, I undersell
Or otherwise I miss the mark
I have this problem with my vision
Tinting everything so dark
I'm getting better every day
But on this day I'm not so sure at all
Not this day
Not at all
Not this day
Track Name: Things As They Are
Feeling better all the time
Feeling better all the time
Follow the leader
Follow the leader
An honest man is hard to find

Lead the rats right out of town
Lead the rats right out of town
Walk like you mean it
Walk like you mean it
Like you don't see what's going down

Watch it happen in a jar
Watch it happen in a jar
Odds on the mean one
Odds on the mean one
I want to see things as they are
I want to see things as they are
I want to see things as they are
