Track Name: The Zombie
I, I thought a lot about you when I met with you that night
Ya there were pleasantries but something just did not seem right
Intelligence used to spark your eyes, it set you apart from the other guys
Now you're staring into the space, the emptiness filling your face

You, you made my common sense seem like a waste of time, like you
You could have been so much better for me, but I knew
There was no escaping it: the rock, the void, the monolith
Somebody played a trick on you, now you walk the world forever doomed
A sad and frustrated reminder of yourself

And now it seems that you went away
Your mind is gone, but your body stays
Just a dead and rotting shade of what you were

I keep telling myself that you'll end up fine

I knew it'd be impossible to get to you at all
You were in way too deep you couldn't even fall
Track Name: Oxidation
My mind is showing me all the one way roads to take
Each one more promising than the last one, but I'll sit and wait
And by the way I wonder why we never ever got too far
And for me that's the only problem so far

A moment passes and my patience is wearing thin
Another day drips by with hesistency
From where I'm standing, ya, I'm my own worst enemy
Self destruction irresistible, purposely

You know what I'm talking about

I always turn to you whenever times get tough (get tough)
The broken pieces of my will dissolve to rust (to rust)
Where there's a will then there's a way, that's to be sure (be sure)
Just tell me which way to get out of here
Tell me how, tell me now
Track Name: Back
I need a little bit of your help from time to time
To alleviate the pressure in my mind
Responsibilities and self doubt got me down
Feels like I'm digging just to hear the sound

I never thought things could get better at all
I was feeling death before the fall
Like a prophet always going it alone
I needed you to help me atone

And there's never been a single thing that you couldn't do
Show me the difference between the false and true
Whenever I need guidance you're always there
Anytime, any place, maybe anywhere

I never thought things could get better at all
I was feeling death before the fall
Like a prophet always going it alone
I needed you to help me atone
You brought me back to the loved ones in my life
I was living social suicide
You stayed the fall of a broken, lonely soul

What was it that you said to me
That our isolation is imaginary
Track Name: Blaster Arm
Metallic red, neon blue
These are the colors I can shoot at you
Absorb your strengths, bind you tight
Too bad you don't have super flight
But if you did, I could still take you
Now, I would shoot you down with super glue
You want to fight me, first hear melody

I have a blaster arm
And it's going to cause you harm
Watch your head my name is Fred,
You're getting your ass laser-blasted.

Get back up, pathetic being
Acting like you have a messed up spleen
Turn my back, and then go figure
It's a cheap shot at the Tommy Hilfiger
Sweater I used to conceal the only weapon that I yield
You're too slow, baby, dodge, dodge, dodge
And I shoot back at your ah-ha-ha!


I have a blaster arm
And it's going to cause you harm
Watch your head my name is Fred,
You're getting your ass laser-blasted.
Track Name: Yes
Smoothing out the seams, and the wrinkles in my dreams
The doubts are billowing, I'm hesitating
But your eyes are beckoning while my heart's palpitating
Your hands reach out, I'm breaking down

Say goodbye to what's gone
And say yes to my song
'Cos you know where I belong is in your arms
It'll only take one thing to drive me mad
So don't feel bad when I throw away everything I had

Denial that's proving, it's ever consuming
I'm trying to keep my distance, but I only know persistence
These winds aren't carrying with the will to compromise
Gone in the blink of an eye

Say goodbye to what's gone
And say yes to my song
'Cos you know where I belong is in your arms
It'll only take one thing to drive me mad
So don't feel bad when I throw away

Time's a wasting, so I'm bracing
To be facing what I've been chasing
And my mind's racing, and my heart's pacing
Over this fucking rapture I'm now embracing

Say goodbye to what's gone
And say yes to my song
'Cos you know where I belong is in your arms
It'll only take one thing to drive me mad
So don't feel bad when I throw away everything I had
For you...

Time's a wasting, so I'm bracing
To be facing what I've been chasing
Ya my mind's racing, and my heart's pacing
Over this fucking rapture I'm now embracing

So I'm smoothing out the seams
And the wrinkles in my dreams
The doubts are billowing and I'm hesitating
It'll only take one thing to drive me mad
So don't feel bad when I throw away everything I had
