Oh some say I was, a major threat with claws They called my fire eater I used to be a shining symbol of bravery But now he’s just not here The crowd is shouting calling, that’s our cat boy Malik Destiny But I just can’t quite remember if that name fits me Then that roaring tide came crashing down on us A violent weather leaving all our memories damaged SCATTERED, my molecules were warped now I’m not quite the same Factured, pieces lost to the elsewhere now I can’t remember my face or name Little bits and pieces of teammates I once knew will flicker though But Patterson looks at me like I should feel more than I do But what haunts me most, I feel like this body isn’t mine but try to see myself somewhere in it Staring at the photos of who I was I disassociate and fear my mind I just can’t trust SCATTERED, my molecules were warped now I’m not quite the same Factured, pieces lost to the elsewhere now I can’t remember my name SCATTERED, my molecules were warped now I’m not quite the same Factured, pieces lost to the elsewhere now I can’t remember my face or name But I’ll just keep searching, I know somehow I’m here But I’ll just keep searching, seeking finding the memories I hold dear You may be gone, but you can always remake yourself Before long, you’ll come to love you’re someone else You may be gone, but you can always remake yourself Before long, you’ll come to love you’re someone else SCATTERED, my molecules were warped now I’m not quite the same Factured, pieces lost to the elsewhere now I can’t remember my name SCATTERED, I might never be the hero that they cheered for yesterday Factured, but I’m coming to terms with finding my new face and name

So take a pound of flesh, If you think it would help. I can promise you this: nothing else will. Yeah, you sharpen your teeth, Come on and take a bite. I can promise you this: I will survive. I’m back from the dead, or as close as I can get. It feels like there’s a thousand voices screaming in my head. I just have to move, cos I don’t want to forget: The tide's high, the water's rising, but I ain’t drowning yet (no, I ain’t drowning). So take a pound of flesh, If you think it would help. I can promise you this: nothing else will. Yeah, you sharpen your teeth, Come on and take a bite. I can promise you this: I will survive. This the start of the action, and I'm main attraction. But I won’t give you the satisfaction of eating me alive. See you think we’re defenceless, but I know my soul is endless, and you can’t destroy what is Undefined. I’m Undefined, I’m Undefined. So take a pound of flesh, If you think it would help. I can promise you this: nothing else will. Yeah, you sharpen your teeth, Come on and take a bite. I can promise you this: I will survive. I might be more, I might be less, But you’ll never make me a consumerist. I might be more, I might be less, But you’ll never make me a consumerist.

blessings aren't what they seem just like every time before you could party with a losing team but I bet you're wanting more and more and more does it bring you joy to min-max? learn the excel syntax? i think you lost yourself in all those spreadsheets from each as we are able no guillotines at the table though we may eat you every week the 99 just want to speak the more you have, the less it's worth win or lose, it's all the same you get richer and you just feel worse this isn't how to play the game aren't you sick of trying to control an endless string of dice rolls? don’t let the coin decide the way that you feel from each as we are able no guillotines at the table though we may eat you every week the 99 just want to speak cause if we sow the seed we can harvest all we need but we could feed everyone today from your all-i-can-eat buffet and I know you've got a good heart it's not too late to restart and find the passion that you can't remember from each as we are able no guillotines at the table though we may eat you every week the 99 just want to speak cause if we sow the seed we can harvest all we need but we could feed everyone today from your all-i-can-eat buffet

SUN 2 05:34
Waiting on the rising sun To lay its swollen eyes on me Not a second oh too late The heavy feeling fought to plate And I am here and you are far But we make burdens easy work Darling, you’re my second sun Shining on when I lose sight Take my hand when I forget That there’s a reason I’m alive And I have sown a field for you And I will reap what comes of it Waiting on the awling sky Punctured, let the light on through And spring returns as promised, you Start to believe in getting by It’s midnight in the parking lot I’ve never shone more brightly than In stadium with several suns Moonlighting once the day is done Darling, you’re my second sun Shining on when I lose sight Take my hand when I forget That there’s a reason I’m alive And we have sown a field for you And you will reap what comes of it I will not take my eyes off you When I think I’m not coming back It comes on when the music hits It comes on when I try to laugh You beckon and I’d steal for you It’s how I know that I’m still here It’s how I know love is a choice I make so I don’t disappear Darling, you’re my second sun Watching me where I belong Keep the lights from going out Keep the dark from coming on Darling, you’re my second sun Shining on when I lose sight Take my hand when I forget That there’s a reason I’m alive And we have sown a field for you And we will reap what comes of it Oh, my my (repeat)

I wake up on a rock hard bed Sweep the dreams out from in my head And hold her in my mind I’m running late, need to see my team Another zombie, not the first they’ve seen This place seems to attract my kind I get my head in They see my problem That she’s all that I’ve got left And now I’m oh so lonely But see the nights are holy Cause I can pretend that she’s lying on my chest I’ve got the best life, cause I'm living with the best wife, so I’ll keep on holding on Even if it hurts a bit, in the places that the sharks have hit, I’ll keep her as number one Everyone I knew moved right along In the twenty years that I’ve been gone It’s not their fault, I know She’s all that’s left in this crazy world She’s been through shit that no one’s ever heard A good life is what she’s owed It’s messed up I know It’s all I’ve got though So I’ll just keep giving my best Because I’m oh so lonely But see the nights are holy Cause I can pretend that she’s lying on my chest I’ve got the best life, cause I'm living with the best wife, so I’ll keep on holding on Even if it hurts a bit, in the places that the sharks have hit, I’ll keep her as number one A fire is burning somewhere That I thought went out long ago It’s not fucking fair But now’s my time to go I can see the sun going out I think we both know what that means It’s fine my love, I’ll be alright Just know you gave me the best life You’ve been the best wife

She lost her voice Under the ocean waves Smothered by the tides Drowned in the pouring rain But now she sees the truth Beneath the water lies A path to guide her home Elsewhere but still alive No more denial It's time She looks up and shouts To the empty skies "You cursed my name You swept me away But now I'm back And now you'll pay" Shattered chains Lie beneath the waves A solemn reminder Of where she once laid Lost in the elsewhere But lost nowhere at all No more pain No more illusion She looks up and shouts To the hollow skies "You cursed my name You swept me away But now I'm back And now you'll pay" So many years Wasted and gone Living with the weight of the sea In her weary arms Lost in the elsewhere But lost nowhere at all It's time to come home It's time to say goodbye No more tears No more denial She looks up and screams To the burning skies "You cursed my name You swept me away But now I'm back And now you'll pay"

Hey Jaylen, I know you’re leaving home Where we’ve been living for so long And I don’t see you coming back For a long, long time For a long, long time For a long, long time Go back to the field where you’ll be met Thousands of fans, and their debt I’ll be in the crowd, cheering you on But I still want you home, not too far gone Cuz I don’t see you coming back For a long, long time For a long, long time For a long, long time I can’t help but feel like you’ll be stuck in starlight And what will become of me then, will I be all alone again I don’t see you coming back For a long, long time For a long, long time For a long, long time
