I put it all in my music, I put it all in my lines You can't find a truth I haven't even realized Life is all an era of self discovery Confusion is the only thing that's a guarantee I laugh when I don't know, how I'm suppose to feel I laugh because it's easy, what does that reveal? Life is all an era of self discovery Illusion is the easy thing to find for free I can't make a grand statement, if I'm always learning Don't want to say something that tomorrow I'll be burning Huh - my philosophy Huh - my philosophy Huh - my philosophy It's a brand new fallacy!

You can't dodge this ram The Great Dodge Caravan Casino Grandma's are wheeling to kill You Kids in the back, the family pack A challenge you would lack the nerve It's gonna be a long ride to the glory we deserve Unbeatable Means you cannot win Defeatable That's you my friend Impossible To even make a stand 'Cuz in no single way can you beat the Dodge Caravan Ice cream stains, enemy blood remains You shoulda planted my tomatoes better It's nothing personal, business makes the wheels roll Storage space for pop Knife and cheese like a wop Just make that glovebox drop When the sun awakes we make the highway quake Unbelievable The sheer Majesty Irredeemable Your tragedy Unbeatable You cannot make a stand 'Cuz in no fricking way can you beat the Dodge Caravan It makes you a bum A second away from none This is my life it's not fun Because I'm, on the run

If I asked you out and you said no I'd say "I expected that" and if you asked why I did I'd say "it was a joke" You gotta make yourself seem cool, unaffected and if it ever goes your way, unexpected You gotta be chill and have the will You're gonna lose But what if you win? - Well I never planned for that If I showed you my song and you hated it, well, so do I and if you asked why I showed it I'd say "just for a laugh" You gotta make yourself seem cool, unaffected and if it ever goes your way, unexpected You gotta be chill and have the will You're gonna lose But what if you win? - Well I didn't expected that Oh ya expect to lose, but I don't want to lose I hate it for security, for the joke I cast on me

You came to me in the midst of this operation and now I feel clouds lift on yesterday's frustration We don't change our lives, the universe does One moment to the next, what is now was Cyclonus Bolognus, moving with great slowness Cyclonus Bolognus, what will today show us I have worried so much, sometimes it doesn't come true There is so much random chance, so what can you do We don't change our lives, the universe does One moment to the next, what is now was Cyclonus Bolognus, put the moment in focus Cyclonus Bolognus, overthinking is bogus If you had an issue, that required 2 ply-tissue Someone might go and say, "I'm happy I ain't you" So now it's day by day and that's alright Let's not worry too much about things not in sight

I'm the Daredevil the man in red so just thank yourself I can't see you in your dread In the courthouse I'm closing the case, and in the city streets I'm punching your face Boom a Bull's Eye right between your lie, you're a, big pig in the concrete sty Oooh, Elektracute the circuits in the night, live wires skipping as we fight I'm jumping through a tunnel, I got your brain in a puddle To all the scum I pummel, to your Frenzy I Rumble I am the man the world needs, the justice heart of Earth bleeds I am a man who does not exist, I am the gambler with all the risk I'm the ruler of the Knight in the Gothic caves, you're in for a fright if you don't behave One touch from death with lungs full of meth, oh, look in fear and watch me disappear I'm jumping through a tunnel, I got your brain in a funnel To all the scum I pummel, to your Frenzy I Rumble I am no hero just what we need, to champion the cause we all believe A lone man on a shadowy flight, a flight landing deep in the deepest night "One man can make a difference, Michael"

Our words, easy to hide Meanings, that lie inside Our words, easily bent Losing, what was truly meant What I got in my head, stumbles to my mouth Can't you read my mind, the real intent is all you'd find Our words, only go so far Talk yourself into the stars Silence, can be all we need Just your presence is fine indeed What I got in my head, stumbles to my mouth Can't you read my mind, the real intent is all you'd find Sometimes I don't know what to feel So I keep on feeling feeling (that's real) Oh ya I got words to say (say 'em) To everyone and you today

You're a bunch of weirdos, you like to munch on Cheerios Atleast you don't do it alone A partner in crime, in a time of dying We call it living everyday We can be, you and me A Couple Of Weird Quirks My secrets aren't well hidden, once the line is ridden They all come out so quickly A buddy cop, make sure you stop and don't roll through life We can be, you and me A Couple Of Weird Quirks Opposites are such, but I'll say as much It might hide on the inside, but it's still there The common trait of human, weirdness, what are you doing? You are so different, but you're still weird

What are friends, but people who make you angry What are friends, but people who make you realize when you are crazy You drive me insane, but you're my best buds of all time The good people remain, and my mood flips on a dime I get mad at you, and then I don't care anymore I hope you'll always be, here with uptight me What are friends, but people who make you angry What are friends, but people who are more okay than the rest You drive me insane, but you're my best buds of all time The good people remain, and my mood flips on a dime I get mad at you, and then I don't care anymore I hope you'll always be, here with uptight me

She moves alone in tattered rags With a shopping cart full of Metro bags Wheeling and dealing every stop Selling gemstones for smokes and pop She had a story to tell But it's gone She's seen and been to Hell She got bored She went to Winnipeg for a dream Couldn't make it past Kenora it seems She might be a crackhead, might be a Nun Maybe she's begging just for fun No one really cares Not even her and no one ever dares To even wonder why Illusion painted on her eyes Mystery up to the skies A fender of feeling and distraction Avoiding every interaction One day it's all gonna burst All your fragments will disperse You'll only be a memory To the last conscious of the galaxy One day it's all gonna burst All your fragments will disperse You'll only be a memory To the last conscious of the galaxy

In a good time it's easy to feel good To make changes you never thought you could In a good time your brain can rest To work out all the thoughts that stress I'm gonna make it good this time, it's gonna be fine, gonna be fine I'm gonna fix it good this time, it's gonna be fine, gonna be fine and than the rain comes, it's pouring down You're feeling weaker, you're on the ground In a bad time it's easy to feel bad To fall in the pits and dwell in the sad In a bad time the brain wants misery The logical side of you is history That wave has gone again, it's over, it's over That wave is far away, goodbye, goodbye and than the sun comes, it's beaming down You're feeling better, you're off the ground Prepare For Rain and realize you're gonna feel pain Prepare For Rain Sometimes things can't be the same You're gonna smile and you might cry Some days you're alive other days you wanna die Plan for the mood of gloomy gray and when the times come you can seize the day It's difficult to follow along You step on a crack and lose the song and then something shines up ahead Reach for it and we'll get out of this dread Together

Death, I died a hundred, a hundred deaths, and still a shallow breath Breaks, from my face, my face breaks, and my oatmeal quakes Another day is another way to just find myself back home in bed It's a race to the place that gets me away and yet back into my dread Gravestones in my eyes, ticking time passes by Reasons don't know why, I don't care Graveyards in my sight, dark clouds on my flight Here is the white light, I don't care Cherries, Floro Dery, Richard Scarry, and Kanttila Brain, has thoughts, random thoughts, are bound to claw The dread wears on me at size 11 and I can't exchange for new shoes to step-in I tried to kill it dead with distraction, it barely works after the first reaction Gravestones in my eyes, ticking time passes by Reasons don't know why, I don't care Graveyards in my sight, dark clouds on my flight Here is the white light, I don't care You're the owner of the graveyard, break the gates and let me in You're the owner of the bravest heart, rattle my bones and spin to win

Every ounce of this is real Every moment we feel It seems no matter what I do I always think about you In your darkest hour I know I could never let you go I'll be a light so you can see How beautiful this life can be All I want's to hold you tight Safe from demons of the night There are times we stand on our own and even then we are not alone In your darkest hour I know I could never let you go I'll be a light so you can see How beautiful this life can be

Shout out, this is all about The dude working at the grocery store Packing bags and changing tags Wants to walk out the door Employee deals make the meals Enough cheque to pay the rent Sitting on the can eating ramen noodles The only peace in this place of grease Beats the crooks, in comic books Rob his till and he might kill Owns a sword, and when he's bored He's in the back cutting cans in half Metal songs, his morning alarm Skips the shower for deodorant power Where's the cat, where's she at Doesn't matter now he has to go We're just normal parts Of our world inside the world We all play a part In our world inside the world In the morning, what is dawning? He takes two buses and he never rushes In this town, drive 15 minutes down You'll be wherever you gotta be We're just normal parts Of our world inside the world We all play a part In our world inside the world I look at you and try to find Where you are in the world of mine and yours You are the weirdo kind You have a place in some world
