A Living Experiment
Few more CCs of something green
Few more CCs of something blue
Toxic blender, human centrifuge
Nothing left to lose

Hey - don't you get it
You're a living experiment
How much can you take

Oh - don't you get it
You're a living experiment
How much can you take

A walking cry for help
Work has wired you like a jaw
Smoke is closing all your ventricles
It's irreversible

Hey - don't you get it
You're a living experiment
How much can you take

Oh - don't you get it
You're a living experiment
How much can you take

Don't want to bring you down
Unless you come around
You won't be around

Hey - don't you get it
You're a living experiment
How much can you take

Oh - don't you get it
You're a living experiment
How much can you take

A course to crash and burn
To collide into eternity
On a tried an true trajectory
To catastrophe

Hey - don't you get it
You're a living experiment
How much can you take

Oh - don't you get it
You're a living experiment
How much can you take

Aces
Don't tell me how
Don't tell me how to play

You raise, you lose
You never learn
I call your bluff

Not going to take your turn
You've had enough

You're on your way
You're on your own
You're in a different place
In a different place

It's important to you
That you know
When you're gonna be back home

It's important to you
That you go
But you're gonna leave alone

So shut your mouth
Baby quit your crying
Don't tell me how to play my cards
Cause I know where the aces are

No dimes, no check, no IOU
It's not alot
Why don't you sit back down
And pay the pot

You're on your way
You're on your own
You're in a different place
In a different place

It's important to you
That you know
When you're gonna be back home

It's important to you
That you go
But you're gonna leave alone

So shut your mouth
Baby quit your crying
Don't tell me how to play my cards
Cause I know where the aces are

Do you want me to fold
Do you want me to cave
All your money is safe
In my stack

Do you want me to fight
Cause your cards have been cold
Push me too far to hold you back

It's important to you
That you know
When you're gonna be back home

It's important to you
That you go
But you're gonna leave alone

So shut your mouth
Baby quit your crying
Don't tell me how to play my cards
Cause I know where the aces are

Into the Black
Don't even think about the bet
All the money that you owe to me
Something deeper than your debt
Might be wrong but you're going to be

Into the black
Right out of the box
And over the fold

I was watching where you went
Wonder why you were avoiding me
So your savings may be spent
Won't be long and you're going to be

Into the black
Right out of the box
And over the fold

You might slip, but you don't stall
You might flip, but you don't fall
For a beggar
You're bigger now, you're bigger now

Would be better for the both of us
If we slam the door shut
Past the panic it'll be a bust

Into the black
Right out of the box
And over the fold

You might slip, but you don't stall
You might flip, but you don't fall
For a beggar
You're bigger now, you're bigger now

Small Doses
It seemed so well defined
What's yours and what is mine
But you crossed that line
We've come too far to find out
Where you were

You're in my blood
You're on my mind
But it's all the time
And I'm feeling I
Should be letting you know

I can only handle you
In small doses
Only handle you
In small doses

Temptation in my heart
Mutation in my blood
Like anemia
I drained a pint
To prove
Where you were

You're in my blood
You're on my mind
But it's all the time
And I'm feeling I
Should be letting you know

I can only handle you
In small doses
Only handle you
In small doses

Play the field
Or stay
My love
I drained a pint
And it's not enough

Don't cry yourself to sleep
May the phone ring where you weep
And the doors be locked
We've come too far to find out
Where you were

You're in my blood
You're on my mind
But it's all the time
And I'm feeling I
Should be letting you know

I can only handle you
In small doses
Only handle you
In small doses

Underdone & Overblown
Cover your ears and watch the sky explode
Cover your eyes and hide in horror
Something feels like the Fourth of July
Except the bomb's already blown
Up in the sky

I lead you wrong
I tear you down
And if ever any question
It's you that's wrong
It's you that's wrong

Stoke the bonfire with a piece of your past
Pile up the bones and let 'em roll
Split the seam in the palm of your hand
Underdone & overblown
And near the end

I lead you wrong
I tear you down
And if ever any question
It's you that's wrong
It's you that's wrong
Wrong about me

I know that you thought that you would
But you won't survive
Now that you know that your number is up - goodbye
The sun's burning up and your rivers have all run dry

Cover your ears and watch the sky explode
Cover your eyes and hide in horror
Something feels like the Fourth of July
Except the bomb's already blown
Up in the sky

I lead you wrong
I tear you down
And if ever any question
It's you that's wrong
It's you that's wrong
Wrong about me

I know that you thought that you would
But you won't survive
Now that you know that your number is up - goodbye
The sun's burning up and your rivers have all run dry

Say goodbye
Goodbye
Say goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye
Goodbye

Better Come Clean
If you come around
You better come clean
If not, I'll find out

Once you settle down
You better come clean
If not, I'll find out

Don't keep me guessing
Don't keep me guessing

If you come around
You better come clean
If not, I'll find out

Once you settle down
You better come clean
If not, I'll find out

Don't leave me hanging
Don't leave me hanging

Time won't absolve it all
I could not love you less
Second chances
No second chances
No need to second guess

If you come around
You better come clean
If not, I'll find out

Good to Go
A broken crown
Tumbles down
Right next to you

A broken handle
On a broken pail
Brings nothing to you

A broken dream
A broken dream

Which way you heading
I'm good to go
My ship is waiting
I'm good to go

A broken window
Escape route down below
I'm going through

Which way you heading
I'm good to go
My ship is waiting
I'm good to go

I built this body strong as straw
And my will even weaker

A broken man
Before you stands
Afraid it's true

A broken heart
Beats no other card
I played one to you

A broken dream
A broken dream

Which way you heading
I'm good to go
My ship is waiting
I'm good to go

Which way you heading
I'm good to go
My ship is waiting
I'm good to go

A Motor with a Mind In Tow
I got the wind at my back
Quit moving so slow
Behind a trailer with a wide load
Slowing to a crawl

I gotta rush to react
I gotta get up and go
I got a motor with a mind in tow
Don't think at all

I got a motor with a mind in tow
I got a motor with a mind in tow
I got a motor with a mind in tow
Don't think at all

Jump cross that line
Push the accelerator down
Before red turns green I'm gonna be across town

Don't shut me out
Don't box me in
Make my wheels scream
And make my head spin

I got a motor with a mind in tow
I got a motor with a mind in tow
I got a motor with a mind in tow
It's gonna do me in

Steer me on my way
Prepare me before I stray
Put me on a track
Any way but back
Keep me moving on

But not so fast
What is here and now
Will be missed
Not so fast
The less I think about it
The more I'm burned
Lesson learned
Next train comes, the last one leaves
I should think about it
Before I turn and crash the car

Similar
Under the skin and bone
Under a microscope
We're similar

Under the pouring rain
Under the milky way
We're similar

We're similar in spirit
But not in style
Similar but not the same

When you're looking at 'em right
They look the same
Spittin' images alike
Sculpted from a common clay

When you hold 'em to the light
To compare
When you put 'em in a row
There's something there
There's something there
There's something there

Under the skin and bone
Under a microscope
We're similar

Under the moon and stars
Under a sky of sparks
We're similar

Under the skin and bone
Under a microscope
We're similar

Will It To Happen
Some day I'll learn and I'll tutor you
Some heads might turn at the sight of you

What you want to believe might be untrue
Don't let it fool you
May be breaking down but you got the glue
What's it to you
What's it to you now

Some day I'll learn and I'll tutor you
Some heads might turn at the sight of you

What do you want - something to prove
Look who's talking to you
What do you want - something to prove
What's it to you
What's it to you now

I thought that heaven
Would be bound by your embrace
Will it to happen
It falls into place

Some day I'll learn
Some day I'll learn

Some day I'll learn and I'll tutor you
Some heads might turn at the sight of you

If you want the means of a millionaire
Hope you get your share
If you want to watch the world from an easy chair
Hope you got a spare
If you want someone beside you for all your years
I'll be there
I'll be there
I'll be there

I thought that heaven
Would be bound by your embrace
Will it to happen
It falls into place

Reboot
Clear your head
Cut the cord
Paint the slate blank
Black the board

This is once in a lifetime

More imagined, more believed
All that's interesting - intrigue

In time
In order to find your way
A path will show

It's time to mobilize
And reinitialize

It's time to clear it out
It's time to turn it off
It's time to start over
Reboot

You've fallen on your face
You're trying to retrace
The final few
Put you to the chase
The final few
Left you in a maze

You got stuck in the middle
You didn't try too hard
To stand up before you fell apart

You got stuck in the middle
You didn't try too hard
To stand up before you fell apart

Clear your head
Cut the cord
Paint the slate blank
Black the board

This is once in a lifetime
This is once in a lifetime
