Track Name: Halcyon
If you call me while I'm getting high expect to leave a message my friend.
It kills my buzz when I have to shoot you down.
Got your hopes so high, won't let you drop them on my head.
You make my hairline recede.
Have you heard my answering machine?
Well you're about to.
You can leave your name, and I'll get back to you.

All along I had a choice, and I doubt that you're gonna like it.
I'm far away from your voice.
Far enough that you'll never smell the bullshit.
All along I had a choice, and I doubt that you're gonna like it.
I'm far away from your voice.
And I'm right where I wanna be.

All alone in this halcyon moment, silent.
Now, you're making noise in my pocket, stop it.
I won't trade my piece of mind for the new technology.
So I don't reply.

But you know that the message got read.
Sure kills my buzz when you come to hunt me down.
Got your hopes so high, won't let you drop them on my head.
You make my hairline recede.
Have you heard my answering machine?
Well you're about to.
You can leave your name, and I'll get back to you.

All along I had a choice, and I doubt that you're gonna like it.
I'm far away from your voice.
Far enough that you'll never smell the bullshit.
All along I had a choice, and I doubt that you're gonna like it.
I'm far away from your voice.
And I'm right where I wanna be.

All alone in this halcyon moment, silent.
Now, you're making noise in my pocket, stop it.
I won't trade my piece of mind for the new technology.
So I don't reply.
Track Name: Tinnitus
My mind is always going.
I can hear the machinery, while you enjoy some peace and quiet.
The things you find distracting, like a fan on the ceiling, drown out the sound of my tinnitus.

There's not a day that goes by I don't think of it.
Doctor told me that it was permanent, and I have only got myself to blame.

The thing that I do best of all has worn me down.
So low that it may put me underground.

I don't need your sympathy, this is more of a warning.
The one that I wish I had gotten.
When I was young and naive, and thought nothing could hurt me.
I didn't know I'd get tinnitus.

Now not a day goes by that I don't think of it.
Doctor told me that it was permanent, and I have only got myself to blame.

The thing that I do best of all has worn me down.
So low that it may put me in the ground.
Track Name: Focus Group
You're so upset.
I'm overcoming scarcity.
Don't be greedy.
I'm not convinced I need you, but without me you are nothing.

Make something you can sell me.
Something that I don't know that I need.
Convince me what I get for free should cost a lot of money.

You're so upset.
I'm overcoming scarcity.
Don't be greedy.
I'm not convinced I need you, but without me you've got nothing.

Make something you can sell me.
Something that I don't know that I need.
Convince me what I get for free should cost a lot of money.
