Track Name: How We Fail
A desperate murmur
An unconventional thought
Lack of communication
The last secret we bought

Tightbeams aligned
Clear line of sight
No communication
No communication

And you can flatter your heroes
But at the end of the day
Your flattered heroes
Are your firing squad

At least you know
That's how we fail

And you can flatter your heroes
But at the end of the day
Your flattered heroes
Are your firing squad

At least you know
That's how we fail
At least you know
That's how we fail
At least you know
That's how we fail...
Track Name: Downstream Dwarven Invasion Six
Downstream dwarven invasion six
What do you do to get your kicks
With your brothers never alone
Just please don't turn to stone

Downstream dwarven invasion six
Seek and preserve your relics
Keep the king up on the throne
Just please don't turn to stone

Downstream dwarven invasion six
Pick up your discarded picks
Save the day from the unknown
Just please don't turn to stone

Downstream dwarven invasion six
Unflappable mighty stoics
Please make sure and hold your own
Just please don't turn to stone
Just please don't turn to stone
Just please don't turn to stone
Track Name: Science of Song
Twisted formulas in black and white
Agonizing both day and night
A hypothetical melody
Oh it comes to me with such clarity, oh yeah
A major breakthrough is on the way
I can feel a breakthrough coming today

That's when I realized
I'd known it all along
That's how I discovered
The Science of Song

The realiziation that it takes no beakers
Just some notes and a pair of speakers
Addition of some time and patience
To deviate from major fluctuations, oh yeah!
And even if I've miscalculated
My discovery can't be overrated

That's when I realized
I'd known it all along
That's how I discovered
The Science of Song

That's when I realized
I'd known it all along
That's how I discovered
The Science of Song
The science of song
The science of song!
Track Name: If I Had an Airship
If I had an airship
We'd float through the sky
If I had an airship
In a rigid dirigible
If I had an airship
Our own private paradise
If I had an airship
Drifting on the breeze

And in our airship
As we climb higher
The helium
Will not catch fire

And in our airship
As we climb higher
The helium
Will not catch fire

If I had an Airship
Track Name: Kissed By Fire
I don't want to run a marathon
I just want to hang around all day
On a warm and sandy beach
We could waste the days away

I can't help but lay beside her
My girl kissed by fire
Eyes shine of deep sapphire
My girl kissed by fire
The moon shines ever brighter
On my girl
Kissed by fire

I ran away through time and space
I ran away through my infinite fates
And when all space and time passed
I wanted what we had to last

I can't help but lay beside her
My girl kissed by fire
Eyes shine of deep sapphire
My girl kissed by fire
The moon shines ever brighter
On my girl
Kissed by fire

Ba da da da
Ba da da da

I can't help but lay beside her
My girl kissed by fire
Eyes shine of deep sapphire
My girl kissed by fire
The moon shines ever brighter
On my girl
Kissed by fire
Track Name: A Good Man Goes to War/Night Falls Over Cardiff
Nations will tremble when a good man goes to war
The stars will shake on a paradox unexplained
But you say you're bored
As night falls over Cardiff
And we drive around as dusk descends

And I wonder
Where all the time we thought we had has gone
When the time comes
Which side will he choose?

But does it matter?
Cuz when he fights it means we all will lose
But as night falls over Cardiff I still believe.

Nations will tremble when a good man goes to war
The stars will shake on a paradox unexplained
But you say you're bored
As night falls over Cardiff
And we drive around as dusk descends
But as night falls over Cardiff
As night falls over Cardiff
I still believe.

And I wonder
Where all the time we thought we had has gone
When the time comes
Which side will he choose?
But does it matter?
Cuz when he fights it means we all will lose
But as night falls over Cardiff I still believe
As night falls over Cardiff I still believe
As night falls over Cardiff I still believe
Track Name: The Cost
When you asked the question
What was on your mind?
What were you probing?
What'd you think you'd find?
Little did you realize
It wasn't worth the cost

Looking over your shoulder
Never looking back
Now you've lost plot
In time you'll lose track
Looking in the mirror
It isn't the worth the cost

Momentary Invasion
Tertiatry excursion
Answer the question (It isn't worth the cost)
Answer the question (It isn't worth the cost)
Answer the question (It isn't worth the cost)
Answer the question (It isn't worth the cost)
Answer the question (It isn't worth the cost)
Answer the question (It isn't worth the cost)
Answer the question (It isn't worth the cost)
Answer the question (It isn't worth the cost)
Track Name: Cease to Exist
Cease to Exist
You know you can
If you only try

Cease to Exist
A billion atoms
Float on by

Cease to Exist
Nothing stopping you
Nothing stopping you
Nothing stopping you
Nothing stopping you

Cease to Exist
Cease to Exist
Cease to Exist
Cease to Exist
Track Name: Regenerate
I will do what I must do
To save you if I will be the one
I know that I won't fade away
Until I know you're safe at night

I will go into the dark
And I will be your guiding light
Know that I am by your side
Look away the coming light

It's time for me to be
On my way
On my way
On my way
And I
Will Burst
Into
Flame

But when I must go
I know
You know
That I
I'll be here with you tonight

It's time for me
To be
On my way
On my way
On my way

And I
Burst
Into
Flame
Track Name: Ether
We exist
In the ether
On the subspace
Waves

Time is not
A progression
From cause to effect

Nonlinear
Space and time
In the ether

Time is not
A progression
From cause to effect
Track Name: Air
(instrumental)
Track Name: You Can Escape Your Fate But It's Not Considered Polite
You can escape your fate.
But it's not considered polited.
Track Name: Dayton Ohio 19 Something And 5
Isn't it great to exist
At this point time?
Where the produce is rotten
and no one's forgotten.
On Strawberry Philadelphia Drive

Children in the sprinkler
Junkies on the corner
The smell of hot food and pur hot tar
Man you needn't travel far
To feel completely alive
On Strawberry Philadelphia Drive
On a hazy day
In 19 Something and 5
Track Name: Game of Pricks
I waited so long to have you hide in the back of me
I've cheated so long I wonder how you keep track of me
You can never be strong
You can only be free
And I never asked for the truth but you owe that to me

I've entered the game of pricks
With knives in the back of me
Can't call you or on you no more
When they're attacking me
I climb up on the house
Weep to water the trees

And when you come calling me down
I put on my disease

You can never be strong
You can only be free
And I never asked for the truth but you owe that to me...
Track Name: The Official Ironmen Rally Song
Bitter fish in crude oil sea
you don't have to bother me
You just have to join in on this song

Crawling people on your knees
Don't take this so seriously
You just have to hum it all day long

To dine alone
To build a private zone
Or trigger a synapse
And free us from our traps

You won't see me turn my back
With my head against my stack
Spinning deep and broken open skin

Official ironman you are free
Champions officially
But you won't catch me on an open chin

To dine alone
To build a private zone
Or trigger a synapse
And free us from our traps

Knockout punches for the freaks
Happy little babies with red cheeks
You will rock them gently out of sync

Confirmations through the wire
Spitting us into the fire
Am I also worthy of a drink?

To dine alone
To build a private zone
Or trigger a synapse
And free us from traps
Track Name: Teenage U.K.E.
Someone tell me why
I do the things that I don't want to do
When you're around me
I'm somebody else

Someone tell me why
I act like a fool
When things don't go my way
When you're around me
I'm somebody

There is good reason I guess
Having it once gone to far
When you clean out the hive
Does it make you wanna cry
Are you still being followed by the Teenage FBI
Someone tell me why
Someone tell me why

Someone tell me why
I do the things that I don't want to do
When you're around me
I'm somebody else

Someone tell me why
I act like a fool
When things don't go my way
When you're around me
i'm somebody else

There is good reason I guess
Having it once gone too far
When you clean out the hive
Does it make you wanna cry?
Are you still being followed by the Teenage FBI

Someone tell me why
Someone tell me why
Someone tell me why
I do the things that I don't want to do
When you're around me
I'm somebody else
