Track Name: Garbage World
So nail me to this plastic cross
bind my feet with dental floss
getting mad at my TV set
looks like humanity lost the bet

when all you've got is a hammer, everything looks like a nail
garbage world disposable life
gabage world destined to fail

So nail me to this plastic cross
bind my feet with dental floss
keep my eyes open try to keep my mouth shut
we run around like dogs sniffing each other’s butts

when all you've got is a hammer, everything looks like a nail
garbage world disposable life
gabage world destined to fail
Track Name: Sunshine State
What’s the point of living in a desert made of ice and broken pavement?
It snows only four months out of a year but every time I wanna die by the end of January

and I know if I really wanted to escape i could find a way and i know that it’s pointless to complain
but lately I’ve really been missing the city of Gainesville

In three weeks my skin will get burnt by the sun again
I can take it I guess
my favourite season stretches from Pouzza to Ottawa Explosion, then I’ll shut up about the weather
til November comes around and we're collectively bummed that Fest is over
and I know if I really wanted to escape i could find a way
and I know that it’s pointless to complain

summer is never long enough
and the sunshine state is so far away
summer is never long enough
when you’re stuck living north of New England
Track Name: Folie Objective
j’pensais que je savais, mais j’suis allé du mauvais côté
c’était une illusion
on est des vaches à lait pluggées sans arrêt
conditionnés à engraisser un système tout gangréné
désormais le monde extérieur, la société organisée

est en décomposition
à l’intérieur de nos villes géantes les gens s’entassent à l’abri des arbres
à l’abri de la nature
le rythme de vie oppressant et stressant
m’étouffe même si j’ai l’impression d’pas faire grand-chose

j’pensais que j’savais

des villes remplies d’âmes mortes
où les gens respirent avec effort
un air chargé d’angoisse
de peine et de misère et de mort

moi j’aime mieux pas faire partie de ces malheureux
mais j’ai pas le choix, j’suis pogné dans cet air vicieux
Track Name: PUTITONADEADGUYANDBURYIT
collapsing, spiraling
head first while my body stands upright
shattering, erasing
whatever confidence i might have had

this isn’t what i wanted when i ran away from what i used to be

been there more than a few times
painted myself in corners
surrounded by people i didn’t
really wanna be around

my bloodshot eyes make it hard to lie
i know you can tell
sincerity is ill
when i say i’m doing well

this isn’t what i wanted when i ran away from what i used to be

been there more than a few times
painted myself in corners
surrounded by people i didn’t
really wanna be around

it’s time to let that paint dry
step on out and let the pain die
I can’t afford to wait here
for another second

the more I learn it seems, the more I regret
this passing time will not erase choices I’d rather forget
the more people I meet, the more lonesome I get
it’s not what I wanted but if I dwell on it I might as well be dead

been there more than a few times
painted myself in corners
surrounded by people i didn’t
really wanna be around

it’s time to let that paint dry
step on out and let the pain die
I can’t afford to wait here
for another second
and I won’t
