Track Name: Hi, Hello My Name Is God
I am the splinter in your thumb.
I am the hornet that stung your mom.
I am the reminder.
That you are still alive.
I am the war that took your brother.
I am the hunger in the streets.
I am the politician.
That helped put it all in motion.
You may wonder what is my name.
I will tell you.
Hi, hello my name is God.
Track Name: Ambient Animals Irrelevancies
I tried to tie my shoes today.
How did they end up around my neck?
Well that is a question for something like God.
But he's not answering any of my calls.

I tried to eat dinner tonight.
But I choked and turned blue.
At least I was graced by the light.
But it turns out they're fluorescent.

I met a man that told me to chase the sun.
But it's always on the run.
And all of these sounds are like finger nail waves.
Never ending 'till the end of days.
Track Name: You Think Too Much
You have a fire in your head.
You're trying to feed it once again.
But you don't know what it needs.
You never know what you need.

So you walk around like you're the end of the world.
With that super nova in your mind
Just waiting for it to explode.
Taking everyone you know.

Every time you speak I see black.
And it's surrounded in quotation marks.
Every time you blink I hear that.
You are never coming back.

So you walk around like you're the end of the world.
With that super nova in your mind
Just waiting for it to explode.
Taking everyone you know.
Taking everyone you know.

So you walk around like you're the end of the world.
With that super nova in your mind
Just waiting for it to explode.
Taking everyone you know.
Taking everyone you know.
Track Name: Wake Up Running
I keep running, but I just wanna wake up.
(How can I wake up, when I'm still sleeping away?)
From this reality I made up.
(How can I wake up, when I'm still sleeping away?)
I keep running, but I just wanna wake up.
(How can I wake up, when I'm still sleeping away?)
From this reality I made up.
(How can I wake up, when I'm still sleeping away?)

I can't fall, I can't fall, fall asleep.
I can't fall, I can't fall, I can't fall, fall asleep.

So I keep running, but I just wanna wake up.
(How can I wake up, when I'm still sleeping away?)
From this reality I made up.
(How can I wake up, when I'm still sleeping away?)
And I keep running, but I just wanna wake up.
(How can I wake up, when I'm still sleeping away?)
From this reality I made up.
(How can I wake up, when I'm still sleeping away?)
Track Name: Hang Me Like A Mirror
You hit me on my head, because you are a hammer, driving me in.
And there's no escaping from, your wooden thighs, I'm here to stay.
And these splinters I'm hugging, are the kind that you just can't, seem to remove.
They're the kind, that stay every day.

And you wove me in your rug, that's on your bedroom floor.
So your little dog, can shit all over me.
And you hung me on your wall, like a mirror because you like what you see.
But what do you see in me?
