Track Name: Fake the Funk
Get up, punk, don’t fake the funk, it’s alright
You’re blowin’ chunks of bull and bunk on my mic
The jive and junk that you yack up is so tired
You wanna be real? Well, so do I

You’re takin’ pride in defying the single file
You don’t realize you just joined another line

So man up, chump, and cut the cud you all write
You’ve spit and sung the same old stuff a long time
So sit up, son, and sing yourself a new rhyme
Get grooving to the genuine

You’ve gotta know
You could shake the status quo right to the bone
With your own song

So turn it up
Don’t turn me off
‘Cause your rebel yell is so rehearsed
It’s bummin’ me out
So turn this record ‘round

You’ve gotta know
You could shake the status quo right to the bone
With your own song

So turn it up
Don’t turn me off
‘Cause your rebel yell is so rehearsed
It’s bummin’ me out
So turn this record ‘round
Don’t turn me off
‘Cause you know you’re more than your facade
So let it all out
‘Cause loud and proud’s allowed

So turn it up
Don’t turn me off
‘Cause your rebel yell is so rehearsed
It’s bummin’ me out
So turn this record ‘round
Don’t turn me off
‘Cause you know you’re more than your facade
So let it all out
‘Cause loud and proud’s allowed
Track Name: Sarchasm
Mr. Optimistic
Meet the disgusted, humorless indignant

When what you say means nothing at all to the mob
And you feel your skin thicken in disillusionment
Hoo-ah

When you taste that polemic on the tip of your tongue
And it feels like battery acid burning through your tone
You better mind
Mind, mind, mind the gap
You better mind
Mind, mind, mind the gap

One mistake, you’ll feel a shake
And the whole world lost another one
Your meaning’s swallowed in the quake
And the chasm yawns
The chasm yawns

Just when you thought you couldn’t tread lighter
You feel the floor break up from under

An arid isle of contention is what’s become of your common ground
Just when you thought it was safe to venture out
You feel the valley open wider

But
But when you taste that polemic on the tip of your tongue
And it feels like battery acid burning through your tone
You better mind
Mind, mind, mind the gap

One mistake, you’ll feel a shake
And the whole world lost another one
Your meaning’s swallowed in the quake and the chasm yawns
The chasm yawns

My, my, my,
What frontier could we ever hope to find when we thrive
In the fault line
The fault line of fault
And the chasm yawns?

When what you say means nothing at all to the mob
And you feel your skin thicken in disillusionment
But when you taste that polemic on the tip of your tongue
And it feels like battery acid burning through your tone
Mind
Mind, mind, mind the gap
Track Name: Salt
Ooooooh, oooooh
Ooooooh, oooooh

There’s a tear
There’s a tear that wells around your eye
It reveals the sting of all we’ve kept inside

That’s just the salt, babe
Separating from the sugar of you and I
And it’s our love to sanctify, or to let die

‘Cause I don’t want you lovin' lies, baby
Or thinking that I’m some other guy
And I would rather be despised, baby
Than loved for something that I’m not
Even if it means I lose you

There’s a tear in the fabric of the dreams we tithe
And you’re scared you’ll awaken to another life

That’s just a nightmare
In the morning it’ll still be you and I
And still our love to sanctify, or to let die

‘Cause I don’t want you loving lies, baby
Or thinking that I’m some other guy
I would rather be despised, baby
Than loved for something that I’m not
Even if it means I lose you

Truth is lonely sometimes, baby
I’ve been lonely for a while

Yeah

Truth is lonely sometimes, baby
I’ve been lonely for a while, oh

Baby
My love
Well I’m trying
I’m trying

I don’t want you loving lies, baby
Or thinking that I’m some other guy
I would rather be despised, baby
Than loved for something that I’m not

No
I don’t want no lies, baby, no
You’re thinking that I’m some
Some other guy
Oh
I would rather be despised, baby, no
Than loved
Than loved for someone I’m not

Even if it means
Track Name: Finn
If you find a starless sky on your riverboat ride
Just sing your favorite line
“Goodbye”

A vagabond of heart and mind
Wide-eyed as a child
Set sail in search of paradise
But on the river of your life, what did you find?
The shades of all who’ve tried and died
Cataracts conquered your pride
Flooded your fire
And left you sullen, wondering why

If you find a starless sky on your riverboat ride
Just sing your favorite line
“Goodbye”

Time and tide will swallow all you left behind
(Right or wrong, the river rolls on, boy)
Go ‘round the bend
You’ll want it all back again
(But dead and gone is never a home)
Time and tide will swallow all you left behind
(Right or wrong, the river rolls on, boy)
Go ‘round the bend
You’ll want it all back again
But dead and gone is never a home

Thirty-odd years down the line
Still trying the tide
By now you know the way it flows
Home is where you lay your head
The river’s your bed
And if you roll at all, you’re rolling right

Just smile ocean-wide
And let the river inside
Mmmm mm mm

If you find a starless sky on your riverboat ride
Just sing your favorite line
“Goodbye”

If you find a starless sky on your riverboat ride
Just sing your favorite line
“Goodbye”

If you find a starless sky

Just sing your favorite line
“Goodbye”
Track Name: Dim
I was once a burning sun
Spreading wild fire
To satisfy a searing heart
And shine my mind upon
My stone satellites
The distance that divides words from warmth
Cold armalites
Darkened but alive and apt to reignite
But I dim sometimes
Oh, I dim sometimes

When shadows cast a shroud
Eclipsing me in shades of doubt
And silence ‘comes the sound I’m singing out
Shadows abound
Dark matter silencing my sound
Distances devour and I’m burning out

I’ve become a smoldering pyre
A cinder in the wake,
Mourning moments that inspired
Sun storms and solar flares
The verse that’s given birth to bursting universes
Words that wore
The time they turned to timeless
The bounds they bent to boundless
All that’s gone
Because I dim sometimes
Oh, I dim sometimes

When shadows cast a shroud
Eclipsing me in shades of doubt
Silence ‘comes the sound I’m singing out

Shadows abound
Eclipsing with doubt
To silence my sound, yeah
Distances devour and I’m burning out

Mmm
The season came when my world turned away
I’ve dimmed and found that there’s nothing more to sing
But I smolder on
An ember glowing strong
A dormant sun pulsing in the dark

And I long for a cold stone to warm
And I long for a cold stone to warm
And I long for a cold stone to warm
And I long for a cold stone to warm

I’ve been dim so long
It’s time I lighten up
I’ve been dim so long
It’s time I lighten up
I’ve been dim so long
It’s time I lighten up
I’ve been dim so long
It’s time I lighten up
I’ve been dim so long
It’s time I lighten up
I’ve been dim so long
It’s time I lighten up
I’ve been dim so long
It’s time I lighten up
I’ve been dim so long
It’s time I lighten up
I’ve been dim so long
It’s time I lighten up
I’ve been dim so long
It’s time I lighten up
I’ve been dim so long
It’s time I lighten up
I’ve been dim so long
It’s time I lighten up
I’ve been dim so long
It’s time I lighten up
I’ve been dim so long
It’s time I lighten up
