Track Name: I'm in the Box (Nothing Ever Stays the Same)
You can put me in a box
Stack me up on the shelf
But make sure it's the right fit
Shape, form, size and color

I'll stay here as long as it feels right
But baby, I'm brand new everyday
And if I turn grey
And you had me in a white folder

I'll be like jack in the box
I'll jump right out and up

Chorus;
cause nothing ever stays the same
cause nothing ever stays the same
Baby, not even my name
nothing ever stays the same

If you draw a few lines
And you ask me to stay inside
I'll stay here as long as I feel fine
But I'll leave once it's my time

Cause baby, it's gotta feel right
and baby, I'm brand new everyday
And if I turn grey
and you had me in a black folder

I'll be like jack in the box
I'll jump right out and up

Chorus;
Cause nothing ever stays the same
cause nothing ever stays the same
cause nothing ever stays the same
cause nothing ever stays the same
Baby, not even my name
nothing ever stays the same
Baby, not even my name
nothing ever stays the same
Track Name: When You Wait, You Die
When You Wait, You Die.

When you wait, you wait so long, you wait until you die.
You die because you long for something outside of your mind.
You'll find that you'll need time to realize that longing is death.
That everything you' ever need is right inside your head.


Life is like a flowing light, your mind the steering wheal.
Your thoughts and habits will take you down the same dark alley.
Until you learn to steer the light and point it towards the hills.
And climb the rocks that'll first seem tough until you get the grip.


When you wait, you're just waiting to die.
You are not really alive and you, you don't have a clue what the fuck is going on.
Oh...
You wait, you wait, you wait.
Oh. you can wait forever but you don't have a clue what's going on.


I once thought when life seems tough I'd stay and learn a lot.
But now I know if there's no flow I need to move along.
When living in your mind, you're not alive.
Hey, I'm all caught up in my head, I might as well be dead.



Oh, you wait, yeah, you wait so long.
You don't have a clue what's going on.
You wait, you wait until you die.
Oh you can wait, you can wait.
Oh, you can wait until you die, till you die.
But you still don't have a clue what going on, oh, you're just waiting to die.

When you wait, you wait so long.
You don't have a clue what's going on.
When you wait, you wait so long,
you don't have a clue what the fuck is going on.
Track Name: Accordion Lungs
Accordion Lungs

Playing my accordion lungs
Dreaming of the underworld
Wake me up now
Take me down now

Take me down now
Play me loudly
Touch my strings
Tune me in
Play me loudly

Play on my accordion lungs
Take me to the underworld
Take me down now
Play me loud now

Take me down now
Wake me up now
Play me loud now
Take me down now

Fill my heart
Feed me now
Fill me up
Spill me now

Let me shine
Tune me out
Make me loud
Use me now
