Track Name: Five Year Plan
Was it something you read or a slogan you saw
the seasons they change but I’ve heard it before
Creativity or nonsense?
Do you have the experience?
Gotta have that experience
Do you have the experience?
Gotta have that experience!

What’s out there…What’s out there!

———
I don’t know if it’ll ever find us
and I’m tryin to follow suit
cause chasing after that sweet green
makes me wonder who rules who

I’m tuned out to the sound of the television
reality’s redefined
distractions to keep us going
and keep me from losing my mind
Losing my mind
Do you have the experience
Losing my mind
Gotta have that experience!

——

we flick from one thing to another
were we always sick or did the city buy us this?
I don’t think there’s anything better
than this crowded plot of land
…unless I could walk it again
Track Name: Power By Design
America was never great
Always been so full of hate
Vicious lethargic charge
Validated by the head of state

No todos somos inmigrantes
no existe igualdad
Tus palabras no nos hace débil
Libertad en América

I got a question for you, is this just how it is?
Will you sit back and just kiss the ring?
And that’s power by design
And that's power by design x2

Surprised by bigotry
Lamenting without action
Built on the backs of those
They try to keep down

We found the root of the problem
[Contradiction]
American melting pot
[of inequality]
Maximum power
[Minimum responsibility]
Learn to forget
[Can’t forget history]
Track Name: Worriers
This is a tale for the Worriers
So lost and forlorn
Find them digging through the memories
When all hope’s been gone
Dig up piles and piles and piles of dirt
But the map’s been torn in two
Let them float or sink
Float or sink

What will you be thinking of (x3)

Keep keep thinking
I keep keep thinking
and I still have to act tough,
still have to get tough
but it gets hard, it gets hard
thoughts got me thinking
thoughts got me thinking
and I still have to act tough,
still have to act tough

What will you be thinking of (x3)

What will you be thinking of when the Worriers are thinking of when the worriers are thinking of you (x4 with backup and oooohs)

What will you be thinking of (x4)
Track Name: Cannibal Wave
I struggle to pull up last night like a haze
My dreams feel like an encompassing eternity
Cutting through reality and spitting me back out again
And to ignore the hours spent underneath consciousness
It only confused my memory more
When will we stop being bitter, that we can’t stop the tides of change?

Sink or swim,
Ride or dive,
Tumble in that rip tide,
A dream cuts,
It’s so ripe,
Sharp, warm,
Take a bite

When the moment’s unbearable
Ride that feeling like a cannibal
When the moment’s unbearable
Ride that feeling like a cannibal wave
When the moment’s unbearable
Got that feeling like a cannibal
