Sledge Winston and the Element of Surprise

Lost all of the feeling
In my lower body
Searching for my pulse
But it's not there
The metaphysic content
Has trapped all of my emotions
I hope I can break this decomposing, decomposing piece, and piece of me (?)
In peace
In peace
In peace

You're waiting for my reaction
But you're not gonna get one
You're waiting for some sign of consciousness
I'm waiting for my reaction
But I can never find one
Cause all I can ever feel
Is this unstoppable numbness
This numbness
This numbness
This numbness

Do not be discouraged
From this lack of feeling
Trailing you in (?) loose and (?)
Cause although there's no anger
To fill your disposition
This numbness is just something
You can take
You can take
You can take
And I can take

I'm waiting for my reaction
But I can never find one
I'm waiting for some sign of consciousness
You're waiting for my reaction
But you will never get one
Cause all I ever feel
Is this unstoppable numbness
This numbness
This numbness
This numbness

Things You Know


Still and quiet on my bed
And fighting wars inside my head
While counting the footprints on the ceiling
Blank and colorless tapestries
The voices yell inside of me
And I
Knew then
The paint was peeling

You say this misery
Well that's no more than sympathy for me
Cause this time you were faking
Your motive, very questioning
This silence is so deafening
Now, you see you've got me shaking
Screaming, cursing, then you'll spit
And saying all your worthless shit
And I, of course I'm worth hearing (?)
And I don't know of what I think
But you my friend don't know anything
And that's what makes you not worth fearing

And I've, been lying here for awhile now
Sitting and acting like a child
And if you find my garden could you bring it back
Cause I've been lying here for awhile now
And I've, I've been dying here for awhile now
And I've, died for awhile now

You think it is an untamed piece
Then I am just a centerpiece on the table
Of your feelings
A funny sort of interlude
It's just that helpless attitude of mine
Cause there's no footprints on your ceiling

And everything slips through my hand
I'm sorry I don't understand the point
Should be making
Your selflessness I must have missed
I never knew this emptiness
Like a child, been forsaken
And all the things you never take
The toys you purposely would break
Like a gift, not worth giving
And now I just sit here and stare
Never thinking about how unfair it was
Like the life I was living

And I've been lying here for awhile now
Sitting and acting like I was in exile
And if you see my sister could you send her home
Cause I've been dying here for awhile now
And I'll, I'll be dying here in awhile now
Die for awhile, awhile now, I'm dying now
Awhile, awhile, awhile now, for awhile, for awhile now

Tar


Gentleness is worn and battered
She smells of cigarettes
She knows how many times before, he's been shattered
But she hasn't gave up yet
But she hasn't gave up yet
But she hasn't gave up yet
But she hasn't gave up yet

Would you tear me up
Would you tear me all apart
Would you tear me up
Would you rip me all apart

To get to the bottom of the truth
To get to the bottom of the truth
To get to the bottom of the truth
To get to the bottom of the truth
I told you

Sacred altar's on it's last leg
She knows that it's not all
She's held there by that ruthless pig
But she's not afraid to fall
But she's not afraid to fall
But she's not afraid to fall
But she's not afraid to fall

Would you tear me up
Would you rip me all to shreds
Would you tear me up
Would you cut me right in half

To get to the bottom of the truth
To get to the bottom of the truth
To get to the bottom of the true truth
To get to the bottom of the truth
I fed you

Space Invaders


I know what you're thinking
Or at least I think I do
What's on my mind, isn't half of what's on yours
And I turn, to you quaking
And I'm wrapped in your old man coat
Like a present or a broken-in leather shoe
And buried in that warmness I can't even remember my fears
Is it obvious yet to you yet
That you hold me up
Is it obvious yet to you yet
That you keep me up
Do you know? Do you know that you hold me up

And the planet is safe for now
And my planet is safe for now
Space invaders are getting closer
And my spaceships aren't sure how
To fight them, to fight them without you
To fight them, to fight them without you
Can't fight them, without you, without you, without you

I'm sorry if it's scary for me to depend on you
I don't mean to be a burden at all
I decided, in the silence, that I can't do this alone
I need safety and I hope that you're not pissed off
And I'm selfish and I know it
To ask this of you
At a time when your life's so upside down
At a time when your life's already messed up as it is
At a time when your life's so upside down

And the planet is safe for now
Well my planet is fine for now
Space invaders are getting closer and I'm really not sure how
To fight them, to fight them without you
And they're coming, so close now
And they're getting so close now
The invaders are right on top of me
And my spaceships don't know how
To fight them, to fight them without you
I need you, I need you now, I need you now, I need you now
Don't leave me, don't leave me, don't leave me now, don't leave me now
Can't fight them, can't fight them, can't fight them now, won't fight them now
I'll fight them, can't fight them, without you, without you, without you

And I guess we're like a clown fish and a sea anemone
Yeah that's a sweeping metaphor

Lava Monster


Depression sets in again
I know how that goes
Nothing seems to, work out anymore
And you hurt so much
Feel so helpless
Want to crawl into a hole somewhere and just give up
And just give up, and just give up
But I can't let you
Cause you never let me
Let me
You never let me
You never let me

And you say your life is useless
And you say this is all meaningless
But I know that's just bullshit
Cause you will not give up
Cause you will not give up
Give up
Cause the moment that you do
I would give up too
That's what I'd do
That's what I'd do

And it's not easy
When this happens
Fighting something, that you can't see but
Don't you worry
Cause I'll get in there, and take some hits for you
I'll take some hits for you
I'll take them all for you
I'll take them all for you
No more limits
No more limits
Take them, take them, take them all for

And I know your life's not useless
And if there's some way I'll prove it
When the lava comes I swear I'll block it
It will not touch you
It will not touch you
You, touch you
And if the lava monster came
I would block his flame from hurting you
From hurting you
He will not hurt you, will not hurt you, will not touch you

Puddle Stomper

-
Ok go

I can remember sitting around at my house
And watching the smoke fill the living room
As you rested your feet on my coffee table
And we watched something on tv
Talked about the world
But the lines were already drawn from the magazines
And you called me a sponge
And you were just like diamond coated plastic
Just plastic, so invincible, so invincible
But it's not like that at all, it's not like that anymore and I'm not
Like that anymore

And I gotta hold my breath
Cause the puddle that got you is bound to get me too
And I shouldn't hold my breath
Cause a sponge like you needs a puddle to go to
And I, I have breathing room
Cause the puddle in which you fell
My diamond coated plastic could repel
Could repel, could repel
Diamond coated plastic could repel
Could repel
My diamond coated plastic could repel

And I will repel you just like you're one of the others
And I will expel you just like you're one of the others
Because you are, one of the others now
It's kinda weird I think the way that people change
Think you know someone, but you don't, but you can't
So come up, so come up
Cause I don't even care anymore
Cause you'll never be alone
And I'll always be alone

Cause you're a sponge
Cause you're a sponge
Cause you're a sponge
Who would ever guess it?
Not me, not me, but I don't even know anymore
And how am I to know anymore

And I, I'm out of breath, cause I've been holding it for years
And holding back the tears
Please let me catch my breath
And soak up a puddle there
And scrambling for air
I finally got my breath
And now at least I know for sure
I'm a puddle stomper, stomper, stomper, stomper, stomper, stomper
I am a puddle stomper, stomper
I'm a puddle stomper
I'm a puddle stomper
I'm a puddle stomper
I'm a puddle stomper
And you're a sponge
And you're a sponge
And you're a sponge
And you're a sponge
And you're a sponge
I'm a puddle stomper now
I'm a puddle stomper
I'm a puddle stomper
And you're a sponge
And you're a
I'm a puddle stomper

Bumpercar Blues


You sit there with your sad eyes and you ask me if there's something you can do
Well I hate to burst your bubble but there's nothing and you know that it's true
My mind is a desert and this conversations dry
It's hard to find an answer when you know you have to lie
At the thought of my helplessness my stomach starts to churn
If I caught on fire would you watch me burn
Would you watch me burn

I try to phase it out so I could extend my disbelief
I never knew someone so broken could bring another such relief
Well it's easier to understand when you don't know how I feel
This whole damn situation just seems so unreal
Time heals all wounds
There's not much of a choice
If I screamed till my vocal chords exploded you wouldn't hear my voice
You wouldn't hear my voice

I feel like I'm in that bumpercar and I just got knocked off the track
Cause I just put on the straw that broke the camel's back
Blinded by the light so I can't see three feet in front of me
It's easy to make a mistake when you've lost all sense of direction
I try to squirm away, but the grip just gets tighter
I know you're going to stomp my head into the ground
But could you be a little quieter
Could you be a little quieter
Oh
I'm trying to get some sleep here
Oh
I'm trying to get sleep, quiet, sleep
Please, thanks, quiet, sleeps, please, thanks, quiet, sleep, thanks
Please, thanks

Blowtorch


I hope
You don't know what went wrong
Cause if you did
You'd surely stab me dead
I hope
You don't think it was all my fault
But if you do
I guess that doesn't matter much anyway

But it's not like I expected
All the people I respected
To come tumbling
Down on top of me

And acting like I'm joking
So you can't tell me
I've been choking
On every word I've ever tried to say to you
It's not that I intended
This welcome that I have extended
To be revoked in spite of me
In spite of me
In spite of me

I hope
You don't think less of me
But if you do
It wouldn't shock me too much
I hide myself inside of a plastic bag
Cause at least that way
You won't have to see my ugly face

But I'm not afraid of losing
All these atoms I've been fusing
With the blowtorch that you gave me
And can't you see I'm bending
From the wooden postcards that you've been sending
Just break my back
It's easier

And you think I'm broken
From the ?
And she gave to me
But it's rusting in my hands
The token is rusting in my hands
The token is rusting in my hands
The token is rusting in my hands
The token is rusting in my hands
The token is rusting in my hands
The token is rusting in my hands
The token is rusting in my
Rusting in my hands
And I'm putty in your hands
It's rusting in my hands
It's rusting in my hands
So take it away from me
Just get it away from me
Take this away from me
Before, before, before I am

Sundress


I might of, gone overboard
I casually broke it off
But I feel so outnumbered
When I'm around you
So I rested up
My soldiers
To make an onslaught
On your castle walls
But you had a force field
And so I fade
And so I fade
And so I fade
And so I fade

Sit in the dark
So I can be by myself for awhile
Sit in the dark
So I can be up in this world for awhile
When I drop off
what is there going to be left to see
Except suffocated thoughts
Suffocated thoughts
Of what you've done to me
Of what you've done to me
Of what you've done to me
Of what you've done to me

Sitting there looking at a portrait
Of the things you've never known
I wear my rage so well
Like a fifteen hundred dollar suit
Like the sketches you showed me
You reminded me of a Spiderman
Weaving a web of insecurity
On your mother's good sundress
But the rage will fade
Oh yes the rage will fade
And my will fade
And my life will fade

So I can hate this world for awhile
I sit in the dark
So I can hate myself for awhile
When I drop off
What is there going to be left to see
Except suffocated thoughts
Suffocated thoughts
Of what you've done
Of what you've done
Of what you've done to me
Of what you've done to me
Of what you've done to me
Of what you've done to me
