Track Name: Konecrane
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Introverse
This is my release
This is letting go
This is my unveiling
This is the offload

(This is) complaints department
(This is) my testimony
(This is) human resources
This is read only

This is introspective
This is introverse

This is imagination
This is yours truly
This is manipulation
This is commentary

(This is) purification
(This is) my clarity
(This is) habilitation
This is therapy

This is introspective
This is introverse
Track Name: Cold Sweat On A Sunday
You groove to the beat of the drama
You got evil deep but you preach the dharma
Take one look at yourself you'd be cursin karma
But I wouldn't wish anything on ya, 'cause I love ya

You put me in the middle, I'm the beast tweaker
I better put on my hazmat suit, I'm the peace keeper
But holding two together with cable ties makes my own ties weaker
And it's not even my argument I'm just the guest speaker

You're like a cold sweat on a Sunday
I know I had a good time to get to that state
So I give you my luck either way
You know I'd give you my luck any way
Track Name: Nothing Stays
Before the river was dry, but now the river it flows
Nothin' stays (stays the same)
Thought I was losing my mind but now I'm feelin' quite sane
Nothin' stays (stays the same)
The money comes, yeah but the money it goes
Nothin' stays (stays the same)
Civilisations a strain, in the end we'll all disintegrate
Nothin' stays (stays the same)

Na na na na na
Na na nothin' stays the same
We're in a constant state of change

Cheap education/medication coalition come to take them away
Nothin' stays (stays the same)
Earth's got a new crust of crap, we got the sandstone, the limestone, the trash
Nothin' stays (stays the same)
We're pulling up what's underneath, pushing plumes into the atmosphere
Nothin' stays (stays the same)
Why we hell bent on making a mess? You know you'll still disintegrate, right?
Nothin' stays (stays the same)

Na na na na na
Na na nothin' stays the same
We're in a constant state of change
Track Name: Nothing Is Permanent
In comes the tide on cue
Engulfs the daily grain
We'll grieve for what we knew
But footsteps always fade

Nothing is permanent x4

The hundred year blaze
Burning off excess
We'll stumble through the haze
Rebuild with the mess

Nothing is permanent x4
Track Name: Movement
All this movement has me spinning out
Must keep moving Earth's still spinning 'round
There's no stopping, there's no staying down
Why am I trying to get my head straight
I know I'm gonna lose it anyway

Try it once, twice, rewrite
A stranger in your head, you're trying to fight
Might be uncomfortable, but you might like it
Why am I trying to get my head straight
I know I'm gonna lose it anyway

Rearrange it, fuck it, make it dent
Must keep changing, nothing's permanent
Adaptation doesn't have an end
Why am I trying to get my head straight
I know I'm gonna lose it anyway
Track Name: Human
I sit at the doorway to the
Pacific with a steely glare
Pondering my insignificance
I'm a wind-cut sand dune chair
Disembodied and disintegrating

Wait at the gate to infinity
Unclench my anticipating fist
Inhale my uncertainty
I'm an offshore whitewash mist
Feathered and dissipating

Stand on the fence of multiverse
One without another within
Embrace my fleeting reality
I am human being
Tangible but temporary
Palpable impermanent

I surge towards the end
I peel against the tide
I am a muscle, I tense
I'm intense and I'm tired
Track Name: Connected
I'm signing out, I've seen enough
I'm backing up from the pig trough
You can have your drip feed
You can have your PC,
You're connected

I'm signing out, I don't need to know
If someones a cockroach or someone's a toad
You can have your sports team
Put it on your news feed
You're connected

I'm taking
I'm taking off

I'm signing out, giving it up
I had my time on the hard stuff
You can have your buzz feed
You can have your crack screen
You're connected
Track Name: Feel
Why can't I feel, why am I tangible
Am I really here, if I can't feel my soul
I'm a flattened tin, I'm an animal
Tear my skin, Let me bare my bones

I feel

Sometimes I'm an insensitive prick and I ask myself what it means
Am I a heartless carcass, do I just feel the need to feel something
Was it ever there? I ask who, what, where, why, when
I backtrack, when did I lose my feel again?

I feel
Track Name: Elevate
I need to be inspired
I want to be motivated
Gunna get proactive (tomorrow)
Sick of feelin' like I'm sedated

I want fire
I want flame
Yeah, I want the fire
And I'm takin' names

I'm a seed in the soil
I need stimulation
I'm dry, I'm a sponge (suck it up)
Yeah I need stimulation

I want fire
I want flame
Yeah, I want the fire
And I'm takin' names
