Track Name: People Places
Just cuz we can doesn't mean that we should
Rarely a statement that's well understood
And we take, and take, til it's all gone
There's no more

Don't you realze that we've more than we need?
Short for a quota created by we
And we take, and take, til it's all gone
There's no more left

How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?
Where are you going to go now?
How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?
All gone

I can see
That the rain keeps coming down
No shelter anyhow
Why do we
Have to go and spend it out
When it ain't worth a dime
When you're looking for a sign
I ain't too keen on time
Wouldn't you rather be devine?


How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?
Where are you going to go now?
How does it feel to be one of the beautiful people?
All gone
Track Name: Portraits of Poor Traits
Oh no, we gotta go, even though
(Seems like like we've only just arrived)
My dear, it's unclear, why we're here
(Feels like it's only in our minds)
Swoop down, gather 'round, together now
(All together now)
Decide, do or die, we abide

A mobile, to heal, are you real?
[Wipe off that smile, take a look around]
(Or just a thought in someone's head)
Don't shake, it'll break, my mistake
[No one's aware, we are going down]
(Don't seem to mind what you've been feed)

Do do do do do do do do do do
Do do, do do, do do

Oh no, we gotta go, even though
[Wipe off that smile, take a look around]
{Don't you know or don't you care, about what we are doing here?}
(Seems like like we've only just arrived)
My dear, it's unclear, why we're here
{Don't you know? say, don't you care? about what we are doing there?}
[No one's aware, we are going down]
(Feels like it's only in our minds)
Swoop down, gather 'round, together now
(All together now)
Decide, do or die, we abide

Nothing to do but a’comb your hair
You can go on, I was never there
Nothing to do but a’tell the time
Tell it to leave, get it off my mind
Nothing, no light when I raise my head
You could be stirred, I could wake the dead
I could be no one
No one else knows my mind

I can tell time by the way you walk
Quarter past 3, ‘cuz you sink & sulk
You could be free it you let it go
How can you breath when it overflows?
Nothing, no light when I raise my head
You could be stirred, I could wake the dead
I could be no one
No one else knows my mind

Follow you ‘round just to stay alive
I could be starved, but I’d still survive
Don’t you need fire when you burn my eyes?
Throw it all out, pull the outs inside
Only twilight when I raise my head
I could be stirred, you could wake the dead
I could be no one
No one else knows my mind

I'm in trouble again
Oh no, cuz you never believe me
It's not going to end
Oh no, cuz you never believe me
Why you gotta defend?
Oh no, cuz you never believe me
Always gotta contend?

Don't you know that you've gone too fast?
All that's made is built to last
Don't you know that you've far to go?
All you see is all you know

You're not trying to see
Oh no, cuz you never believe me
What you want it to be
Oh no, cuz you never believe me
Don't you want to be free?
It's no use, cuz you never believe me
I'm in trouble again
Oh no, cuz you never believe me

Hurry up, you've gone too far
All we see is all we are
Settle down, you'll see the way
Ali I've ever tried to say
Track Name: Can't You Feel The Curve of the Earth?
You know the world keeps goin' round
It's gettin' smaller every year
You know the world needs more idols
We need some people we can fear
You know the world keeps gettin' old
It's all around, it's what we see
You know the world needs nothin' else
A little space, so we can breathe

You know the world keep goin' round
We're growing bigger every year
You know the world needs no idols
We are the people we should fear
you know the world keeps slowing down
It's all around, it's what we are
You know the world needs nothing else
I think we've finally turned too far
