ch.(x2) when you're with me you got me out my mind out my mind right now, baby and we'll soon see everything is fine everything is fine, baby v1. we don't care about the consequences of tomorrow we're out there the moment is the only thing we follow one weekend where we forget about our daily problems see rare friends shout across crowds because we never call them vb1.(x2) so let's play for today dress up right far from all the world's haters no regrets it's okay for tonight leave our cares outside for later v2. by sunday we'll have to leave our alternate personas and some say even right now we're nothing more than loners it's pretend but I'd rather this than an empty evening gray days blend but here our memory is ever reeling vb2.(x2) don't forget we can't lose what's been set stays with us beyond forever though it leaves it returns nutured seeds our friendships will never sever

Gilded Wire 04:28
v1. Keep you in a cage, because you act your looks and not your age. Keeps you in a daze, bury you in books, hide you away. Hold you from the fire, cannot learn from mistakes never made. When our time expires, will you burn or disappear and fade? You can light the room, simply cause you're present at the scene Even though beneath, the trespasses have blackened all you've been Everyone assumes, that therefore you need protection from All the villain's teeth, all the malcontents and all the scum ch. (x2) We keep them all in the gilded wires We pick them up so they don't get tired That's probably why they're running away They want to fly but we keep them safe v2. Tear apart the grasps, from all the hands who would stop you cold Undo all the clasps, remove the false outfit you've been sold We all know you can, and deep down we really know you should Live free in the land, even if that's not where we were both stood It's time for the words, to match the intentions they all had I'm sure that it's nice, to have the world dote you when sad But I the know the curse, keeps you still no matter what you've done Frozen in the ice, the sweetness keeps you there, and blind, and dumb br. (x4) all in the gilded all in the gilded wire

Nobody Knows 02:38
v1. Nobody knows that I'm barely breathing Nobody knows that I'm almost seething I don't know which road I should take anymore I don't know that she is headed for the door I wish I could see why to her I'm uncouth But I'm sitting alone here in West Duluth ch. Escape isn't safest / but it's all I've got My friends may well hate this / but it's my last shot I'd rather abandon / before there's subduction Either way nothin / results from destruction v2. Nobody knows that I'm always crying Nobody knows that I'm always prying I don't know if my secrets are truly hidden From the one with whom I'm totally smitten I wish I could go back and fix my mistakes But I guess there are somethings that are meant to break

Been Over 03:38
ch. (x2) It's been over for a long time (long time) It's been over since I left you in this place It's been over for a long time (long time) It's been over since I left you in disgrace v1. (x2) Everything'll be all right When the time's right When the lime light Finally shines bright Everything'll be okay On a green bay When our dreams stay Once our team's payed v2. (x2) Anybody could blow up If they'd show up If they'd grow up Everybody'd show love Anyone could do our jobs Be our frauds Give sour nods Everyone could join our mob

Soft Focus 03:06
v1. i bought a rail pass today to wonder aimlessly away no regrets or memories nothing can be said to me the tracks reflect the winter skies that image won't reach my eyes re-enact my favorite scenes in sepia and tangerine ch. it's like a dream so why wake up? outside is hard but here it's not don't know my name and i don't care the cozy home where nothing's bare v2. alternate reality alien in all i see glistening simulcra of what we're really looking for everything is misaligned the focus feels undefined none can know the half of it purge until they can forget
6.
Rainbow Road 03:42
v1. Look honestly I'm a lame who only casual games / unless it's visual novels I'm the king of that lane / probably why I'm the only rapper with a dope flow / about the entire cast of Katawa Shoujo / cleared every route that's 6 not four loco / cause for a month all I could do mope bro / but I still drop bars like juicy j on a xanax flight / when it comes to the rap game I always Love Despite We're better than those who would vomit rhetoric / provably rad are our combinatorics / blow unprecedented, we're the bomb historic / fly by at trans light speeds, we've totally floored it / they've all Pauly Shored it, careers left on empty / we're MCs who prove P can equal NP / otaku business gets romance like Tenchi / our flows get Ryokos, those bros cannot bench me ch. This beat goes harder than the rainbow road / like Kirby in reverse know I came to blow / expansion packs are premium downloads / unpopular on reddit though with down votes v.2 baller weeaboo style gucci figurines / recursive money on a prius all we do is green / people purple like grimace when they try to cop my lean / i make neko yume smile that's a happy pussy dream / screaming akihabara when I'm on the scene / toranoana staff know that i'm a doujin fiend / feeling so sugoi because I just got paid / i go to maidreamin make it rain at maid cafes looks who's back acting like a young otaku hellion / mr. code geass, young lelouch of the rebellion / shinji off his meds piloting an evangelion / the tiger and the bunny all the other mecha friends / welcome to the spectacle of a boy in spectacles / no megane-bu but fujoshi are susceptible / find my flows delicious and incredibly edible / haters are just lemongrabs, screaming UNACCEPTABLE
7.
Double 03:46
ch. double guilt / double loneliness definitely doubled down though misery loves company it's offset by where we are now v1. what i thought was a vacation, really was a death march i thought that separation, wouldn't seem like such a parched landscape inescapable, i thought that in the crowd i wouldn't feel so lonely, but instead i was plowed by neverending thoughts that something here was truly missing something that i couldn't overcome just just by resisting logic applied actively could not destroy emotions that i had left the most important part across an ocean (ch.) v2. so it's like damage dealt was double than i had expected doubled perhaps yet again because i stay connected to others who are just like me, bystanders and victim who wanders down in someone's world, controlled their by their dictum but warmness felt now only would double the pain again so by myself i'm left to sigh and pine for my old friends and write another poem, song or ode to beloveds one day i pray that i'll have grown enough to be right above it end. so i'm alone in the crowd and i'm empty by myself and my heart screams loud "you belong to someone else"
8.
Unattended 02:28
ch. left unattended, left all alone so don't defend it, maybe atone left unattended, left all alone done with pretending, now it's all gone v1. scolded and rarely rewarded left alone so unescorted change always seemed to be shorted told he was nothing but sordid asked to justify his passions derided for taking action hard to not feel unwanted still he moved forward undaunted only thing getting him through magazines and some cartoons other realities made to hold depression at bay trying to look towards tomorrow every last dream out on borrow tried to spare everyone's feelings failed now everyone's reeling v2. taught how to throw many tantrums learned how to make many anthems never once feeling that handsome love always held for a ransom put it all into his product never thought it was neurotic thought it came off as exotic mysterious and quixotic it was unbalanced propulsion a self-destructive compulsion never achieved an emulsion unsaid was others revulsion finally was told he's disgusting no longer anyone's trusting pray that though something is rotten what's budding leaves it forgotten
9.
Most Of All 03:40
ch. I hate you, I hate you, I hate you, I hate you I truly hate everything But most of all I hate myself, yeah v1. snuck out during recess left to find the abscess pocket matches burning stupid preteen yearning used up extra chances fucked up all advances opportune to no one guess i was the slow one (guess i was the slow one) v2. confidential confess confidences come less keeping selfish secrets guess the lies are needed references all excised lessons i can apply cannot buy what one says came to try the nonsense end. (repeat) i hate myself
10.
v1. Didn't buy maison margiela I bought my clothes at the zellers Until I married nurse hella Then I hit all the ateliers Naw I went down to the thrift Spotted the barely loved gifts Discounted down to a fifth But this isn't macklemore biz Neet, I'm so fly like Macross Otaku jesus on mah cross Porta pro just like mah Koss That's why they call me Mac Ross! pre-ch/br: Get shirtless, this is an anime Fan service, this is an anime So nervous, this is an anime Forget it, this isn't anime! ch. (x2) ...this isn't anime, this isn't manga, no this is my life ...this is my everyday, this is a song, but woah it is hype v2. Really confused by the nerds Who want their heroines pure Ever polite and demure Then turn around spit slurs They feel owed and indebted Victim complex is abetted By what they put in the head kid Building neurosis on credit I never saw from the angle Took my risks and let it dangle Even if sometimes I'm mangled Other times I am entangled
