Track Name: Different Kind of Animal
Spend my days all the same
restrained and kept at bay
a captive to this modern age
Break my back just to attain
nothing more than a modest gain
Congratulations, what a waste
Endless days and sleepless nights
killing boredom with a little life
I'm just looking, for an escape
c'mon

When you gonna let me go
I just want to lose control of everything, everything
I'm a different kind of animal
Too close, stand back
Too late, fuck that
When you gonna let me go
I just want to lose control of everything, everything
I'm a different kind of animal
Too close, stand back
Too late, fuck that
When you gonna let me go
I just wanna lose control
of everything, everything
I'm a different kind of animal

I don't mean to always complain
but it's been a long day
and I'm just trying to have a good time
My next door neighbor thinks I'm going to hell
so I baptized myself
with a 40 ounce High Life
You can have some of my time
if you don't give it back, I don't mind
I'm just learning to say goodbye
so long

When you gonna let me go
I just want to lose control of everything, everything
I'm a different kind of animal
Too close, stand back
Too late, fuck that
When you gonna let me go
I just want to lose control of everything, everything
I'm a different kind of animal
Too close, stand back
Too late, fuck that
When you gonna let me go
I just wanna lose control
of everything, everything
I'm a different kind of animal
Track Name: Sunny
I forgot your face
forgot your name
What is this place?
I'm drifting away to
someplace I've never been
Getting dark and I could use a friend
Don't need you to hold my hand
just stay with me until it's over and
it's my time

I know what you're gonna say
but I'll listen anyway

These days, my mind is broken
Had a thought, it fell into the open
I discovered a brand new emotion
Go ahead, ask me how it's going
I don't know

I forgot the day
forgot my age
What is this place?
I'm drifting away to
someplace I've never been
Getting dark and I could use a friend
Don't need you to hold my hand
just stay with me until it's over and
it's my time

I know what you're gonna say
but I'll listen anyway
Track Name: Thumbs
Nothing left for us to conquer
no new frontier to wonder
we're not getting any younger
this year
Everything's an approximation
of some other imitation
but I think you are
an original
Getting drunk in the back of some bar
turn around and there you are
onto the street and into
some car

It's been awhile since I've gone out
been 40 days and I'm still coming down
but if you'll have me, I'll stick around
cause I could use the company

Happy hour is almost over
double down and don't fall over
never lose your composure
no
Put some money in the jukebox
play something to piss people off
Karma Police will clear
any room
Every day is vacation
when you got no occupation
Opportunities
disappear

It's been awhile since I've gone out
been 40 days and I'm still coming down
but if you'll have me, I'll stick around
cause I could use the company

Can't shake it, can't shake it
2-for-1 at Thumbs, I gotta take it
Can't shake it, can't shake it
2-for-1 at Thumbs, I gotta take it
I'll be around
I'll be around

I'm glad your on my side
I'm glad your on my side
I'm glad your on my side
I'm glad your on my side
Track Name: Alligator
I can see
the end of me
Quite the scene
Post-everything

I got it, I got it all worked out
on the back of my hand, it's all written down

Fighting the feeling
a new cataclysm
We're endangered species
making a living
and I think it's alright

Stuck in some kind of fugue state
Walking backwards, down a oneway
Think twice, stay hushed
have safe travels
Godspeed, to you
don't unravel

I got it, I got it all worked out
on the back of my hand, it's all written down

Fighting the feeling
a new cataclysm
We're endangered species
making a living
and I think we're alright

Walk around the lake in circles
it's getting late, the sky's turned purple
I hear the firecrackers
drowning in the sound of laughter
and we're just waiting and waiting
and waiting and waiting
it out

Spend my days running in circles
looking for something different
Had a thought that tripped my trigger
now it just don't make sense
Spend my days running in circles
looking for something different
Had a thought that tripped my trigger
now it just don't make sense

I got it, I got it all worked out
on the back of my hand, it's all written down

Fighting the feeling
a new cataclysm
We're endangered species
making a living
and I think it's alright
Track Name: 34
I had another dream
where I pulled out
each of my teeth
and I bit down
swallowing everything
I don't know what it means

Something's taking over, something's taking over
I can feel it
Something's taking over, something's taking over
Can you feel it

Ambivalent to most everything
Making decisions the hardest thing
Count me out
if you're doing anything
tonight or this week
cause

Something's taking over, something's taking over
I can feel it
Something's taking over, something's taking over
Can you feel it

Run, run, run, run right around
back to the start of everything
Look, look, look, look around
tell me what do you see?
Come on, go on, get lost and found
out there in the deep
Cause they all want to
feel it too

Waking up in somebody's dreams
Nothing's quite as it seems
It's fine 'til everyone screams
Burn it down, burn it down

Something's taking over, something's taking over
I can feel it
Something's taking over, something's taking over
Can you feel it

Run, run, run, run right around
back to the start of everything
Look, look, look, look around
tell me what do you see?
Come on, go on, get lost and found
out there in the deep
Cause they all want to
feel it too

Walking in circles and speaking in tongues
over and over but they're never done
Walking in circles and speaking in tongues
over and over but they're never done

Something's taking over, something's taking over
I can feel it
Something's taking over, something's taking over
Can you feel it
Something's taking over, something's taking over
I can feel it
Something's taking over, something's taking over
Can you feel it

Run, run, run, run right around
back to the start of everything
Look, look, look, look around
tell me what do you see?
Come on, go on, get lost and found
out there in the deep
Cause they all want to
feel it too

Track Name: New Kinds of Trouble
We had a come to
Jesus party man
it was crazy and
Drinking all the wine
we were so lit up
That is just like us
that is just like us
But I know that it's
not right my head
think I've had too much,
yeah I've had too much
We were blacking out
on your couch
Turn the TV up,
turn the TV up
I know,
no I don't

Searching for
new kinds of trouble
Night after night
looking for that next level

I said Julian,
do you want some man?
Let's go out the back,
let's go out the back
I've been taking from
all the city folk
and they won't ever know
they won't ever know
But I know that it's
not right in my head
So I will give it back,
I'll just give it back
Cause everything
means nothing when
there is nothing left,
there is nothing left
Well I know,
no I don't

Searching for
new kinds of trouble
Night after night
looking for that next level

Ancient rituals, sketch individuals
all around
Grotesque manners, turn to cancers
it's time to go
Taking the backroads out of the shadows
into the light
I don't need anybody telling me
to fall in line
I've got it, yeah I've got it
under control
I've got it, yeah I've got it
under control
I've got it, yeah I've got it
under control
under control
now
Track Name: In the Afternoon
Go ahead
and take a bow
No one is around
I noticed
Nothing's changed
we're undefeated
in the afternoon
amongst the necessary evil

I'll keep pretending
these days are never ending, no

I worked my hands through the bone
avoiding work and staying home
Routines, daydreams, same things
I think I need, something else
To get me through the afternoon
and back to the well

I'll keep pretending
these days are never ending, no

Go ahead
and take a bow
No one is around
I noticed
Nothing's changed
we're undefeated
in the afternoon
amongst the necessary evil

I filled my lungs with smoke
let my mind free to roam
Routines, daydreams, same things
I think I need, something else
To get me through the afternoon
and back to the well

I'll keep pretending
these days are never ending, no

I'll be right over
right, right, right over
I'll be right over
right, right, right over
soon

Go ahead
and take a bow
No one is around
I noticed
Nothing's changed
we're undefeated
in the afternoon
amongst the necessary evil

I'll keep pretending
these days are never ending, no
Track Name: Revelations
I woke up, outside of
my entire body
Like a lucid dream, it was everything
I came to discover
Followed green lines, to a great divide
felt a presence on the other side

Revelations, revelations
don't believe God but I'm looking for salvation
Conversations, I sometimes fake them
so generic, couldn't stand it and I hate them
Expectations, motivation
gonna start a revolution in the basement
Combinations, wrong combinations
my head is spinning in the light I am fading

I woke up, outside of
my entire body
Like a lucid dream, it was everything
I came to discover
On a new path, through the tall grass
I looked all over
Felt the sunshine, was a good sign
I'm on my way back

Revelations, revelations
don't believe God but I'm looking for salvation
Conversations, I sometimes fake them
so generic, couldn't stand it and I hate them
Expectations, motivation
gonna start a revolution in the basement
Combinations, wrong combinations
my head is spinning in the light I am fading

Revelations, revelations
don't believe God but I'm looking for salvation
Conversations, I sometimes fake them
so generic, couldn't stand it and I hate them
Expectations, motivation
gonna start a revolution in the basement
Combinations, wrong combinations
my head is spinning in the light I am fading
Track Name: 200 Cats
The floor was caving in
she didn't give
a single shit
Must've had 200 cats
maybe more
out in the back
A Freezer full of animals
she couldn't stand
to see them go
and she said
to his picture
I am waiting, always

She's waiting for a call
that's never coming
The sun is setting on
her final days
It's been way to long
since she's felt
someone's touch
She's only human

Everything that they ever said
was so elegant yet irrelevant
Couldn't penetrate her mental state
it was much too great
it was much too late
She just sits in her favorite chair
talking forever but nobody cares

She's waiting for a call
that's never coming
The sun is setting on
her final days
It's been way to long
since she's felt
someone's touch
She's only human

It's over
It's over
It's over

She's running out of time
She's running out of time
She's running out of time
She's running out of time

She's waiting for a call
that's never coming
The sun is setting on
her final days
It's been way to long
since she's felt
someone's touch
She's only human
only human
