Boiler 02:49 video
Drowned in salty black depths Overworked and gasping for breath But, as the flames grow And the water’s almost boiled Though it seems no different You can leave this state behind Pushing towards your critical temp Molecules break free from their vessel Free to float upwards and go anywhere you’d like Free to diffuse into thin air you’ll intertwine

Oil seeps at the seams We see it dripping We know it's sure to run out But we'll be catching every dripping as it drops Holding every last breath 'til it stops Pools of carbon, heat and pressure oven It took a billion years to stock it up for us Resource wanting, never truly starving But we ate it up like starving vultures would But we've been thinking Learning for thousands of years We had the luck and the good fortune to detect We see the warning But we spit straight in its face Won't ever trust the unseen evidence Especially with the hope of being rich Looking onto less-than-certain ground Looks like we'll just have to let nature run its course Almost drowned We're searching for a heartbeat now

You against the world Always something in the way Against the world But you want it all It’s you against the world Take it to it every day Against the world But what goes around comes around Up on the third floor in C2 In a bathtub full of shampoo She’ll be singing Elliot Smith Sung for too long through her purple lips A mind of pure artistry watching Gilmore Girls Season 3 Until she’s hungry Cooks macaroni and cheese And for five minutes she’ll feel so serene In aquamarine You against the world Always something in the way Against the world But you want it all It’s you against the world Take it to it every day Against the world But what goes around comes around But she’s got big dreams in her heart Even if she can’t quite find her start She’s making big moves every day Got five interviews from her resume She’ll substitute teach, or even park your Mercedes Until she gets hers And when she finds what she needs She’ll take the plunge, goes head first She’s smiling, while she’s diving in You against the world Always something in the way Against the world But you want it all It’s you against the world Take it to it every day Against the world But what goes around comes around

Vines 04:39
You lay on the floor Tears well in your eyes drip to the ground You need something more But dark thoughts in your mind keep your paralyzed You need something more Tears well in your eyes drip to the ground You need something more But dark thoughts in your mind Are vines that hold you down to the ground When they tighten, you’ll break from the vines Are dark thoughts that hold you down to the ground When they tighten, you’ll break from the vines You free your mind Dark thoughts in the vines Break free from the vines

Circle 03:01
Nothing makes me feel quite as whole Than the thought of my friends get well Accomplish their goals ‘cause when the circle breaks One link gone out of control It takes an undivided toll Walking down the block on Chester Ave. With a chill in my fingers and an ache in my back But when I open the door, you’ll be there smiling right back We’ll all be throwing seltzers back And I know that you’ll make it through And we can’t help but help you to And I know that you feel it too A part of us is a part of you A part of us is a part of you And if the circle breaks, we’ll seal it up with some glue A part of us is a part of you When you’re occupied inside the lab With a pipette in your right hand, hold a plate with your left You wrap it up for the day Get in your car and collapse When you get home, I’ll rub your back And I know that you’ll make it through And we can’t help but help you to And I know that you feel it too A part of us is a part of you A part of us is a part of you And if the circle breaks, we’ll seal it up with some glue A part of us is a part of you

Tell Me Why 03:25
We walk on like a wildebeest gone blind We could look but we still refuse to try And you could never ever tell me why And you could never ever tell me why They grow fat as they steer towards our demise Feast on the poor, the wretched, and the blind And you could never ever tell me why And you could never ever tell me why We can’t grow while we’re captives of our line We’ll break free from the clenches of our line Watch the takers get bought We’ll break free
7.
Seeker 04:04
Elation’s overdue Held over from the last one Trying to break through from the valley of despondence And I fawn over you To help you come around I’m waiting over you Won’t you come around Please help you come around And I said over again, “what’s going wrong?” And you said, “everything’s fine in moderation” ‘cause you like the feeling and there’s nothing wrong with medication Pleasure seeker’s at it again, no hesitation

Garden Glow 05:25
Mesmerized by the Garden’s glow We’ve been going off the rails for too long Overeat as the garden grows, now we’re an army 7 billion strong Don’t we know stealing from the future is wrong So wrong How wrong? “If we just commit to what’s already done, Then maybe all our problems just go away” That type of thought comes from self-serving fear Convinced that everyone can just go away More like if they don’t look like you get away Such hate Won’t stay I see you, I feel you, I love you, we need you And they can’t sell us a fear farewell Fear monger’s hell Hypnotized by the firmament It’s a cancer in disguise But from inside we hold we remedies If we could just open our eyes Redistribute Redesign I see you, I feel you, I love you, we need you And they can’t sell us a fear farewell Fear monger’s hell When it comes down We’re all going down
