Lab Rat (free) 05:15
Remember raising lab rats with fur of soft clean white Remember not remembering Remember letting them die Dug a grave to bury Was it you I put inside Let go I won't You know As well I don't Remember you're my lab rat Experimentally mine Remember everything I do to you is in the name of science Tremble as I grasp you Tuck those little legs inside Let go I won't You know As well I don't Watch you run It's like you don't think you're safe Run, run, run You'll only stay in one Watch you run It's like you don't think you're safe Run, run, run You'll only stay in one place You'll only stay in one place You'll only stay in one place You'll only Let go I won't You know As well I don't

Why did the background move while you remained in constant view? We were rotating Did I feel my joints pulling outward from the center point? We were rotating, we were rotating Elevating as we spin around Geyser skyward on a molten wave of sound We revolve Why did the clouds exchange from the jagged coast to mountain range? We were rotating Did my soul pass through other souls along the way to you? We were rotating, we were rotating Elevating as we spin around Geyser skyward on a molten wave of sound We revolve Why did the background move while you remained in constant view? We were ro, we were ro, we were rotating We were ro, we were Rotating We were ro, we were Rotating We were ro, we were

Thru (free) 04:29
You can look down on me You can look down on me, but I will continue And you can try to block me You can try to block me I will go thru you I will go thru you I will go thru you I will get through by shifting so that yours and my molecules perfectly misalign Showing your doubt in me You're sharing your doubt in me But I will forgive you Why would you try to stop me? You should not try to stop me I will go thru you I will go thru you I will go thru you I will get through by shifting so that yours and my molecules perfectly misalign And I'm just passing through It is the only way I'm just passing through Is it such a change? You know we all occupy We all occupy the same space Running aground on me Running aground on me, but I will release you I promise you it's real I'll show you how it feels I will go thru you I will go thru you I will go thru you I will get through by shifting so that yours and my molecules perfectly misalign

Vacant Stares (free) 04:23
What's living underneath you Can it be extended and reduced? Yearn to be something bigger and indeed, this is something bigger than you And stronger, hungry too You open up that hole and fall right through And nothing I can say will help you Search for someone, anybody who cares What crawls out from under vacant stares? Search for someone, anybody who cares We crawl out from under vacant stares What's living underneath me Is it something I'm supposed to know? What turns the gears beneath the engine that controls where all my thoughts go? They're churning, chafing too And look at what you've got yourself into Nothing I can say will help you Search for someone, anybody who cares What crawls out from under vacant stares? Search for someone, anybody who cares We crawl out from under vacant stares

Colorfalls (free) 04:38
Did you see the colors running They were flowing from my eye Even as the lids slide downward I can see the shining sky From my face (color falls) In my weakness (color falls) From my veins (color falls) Pouring over every wavelength Under ultraviolet sky Pour another glass of shadows Before you step into the light From my face (color falls) In my weakness (color falls) From my veins (color falls)
