Track Name: Twin Triplets
When we hit, sparks fly from the asphalt out on the strip. Your head's too deep to land in though, so we slide. And we'll slide forever if we have time. This bed's too steep to climb out of. Sometimes I like it, but I can't decide if it's real, or if it matters. And sometimes I lie, but the truth is a word that we made up. What's the point complaining? They just created us. It takes some time to process but it don't take long to forget, if you want.

But we must be making progress, I guess, because I've tried blanketing the noise. The static in my headphones read it's prose with rare poise, but I was coy. I don't really open up to disembodied voices. There's no point. I'd rather go insane a way that I enjoy. Stay distracted if you can though, 'cause when the end don't come, I know we'll give it up and you will give them what they want. It's just a feeling I got, that maybe we're inside of somebody else's daydream, not wondering what they mean. Shouting my name or sitting there in silence interpreting our daydreams. I don't know what they mean, but that's not saying nothing.
Track Name: 8 Hours
Say what you want, then sleep right in. This life is long, and changing your ways won't change a thing by the end of it. So take what you want, and sleep it off; life's eight hours long. Never open your eyes. Maybe we die when we wake up.

But maybe I'm wrong and that's not what it is. But if it is, then I want in. I think that it's fine. But what do I know? That's just how I think when I'm high, so forget it. We're alright and it's night, and it's cold outside. Let's keep walking.

Say what you want about this town, but it's wearing out. I used to walk around at night and wear the scattered light just like a crown. But it's different now, there's so much pressure.

Remember: I know who you are, and how you'll end, and where you'll start, and what you're made of. And sister, I found what you were looking for, and I can take you with me.

Or stay - I'm pretty sure it makes no difference at all. You'll be the same as you were yesterday, and I'm changing all the time.

But what do I know? That's just how I think when I'm high, so forget it. We're alright and it's night, and it's cold outside. Let's keep walking.
Track Name: Dream 3
Hungry at the table, your mind sinks into mine and I'm wondering what you're capable of. Just stay here. This chains linked. We're chained up.

I wish I made it look easy, but not sleeping has taken it's toll. If it leads to brain cells in lab rats dying, then "so it goes". We don't belong here anyway, and we won't stay. But we can't leave until we answer their questions, like "where did it hurt?" and "did it work?"

The beautiful earth that we fucked up, one day will recycle us into it crust. And who really cares if it does? What's one more plastic bottle to the ocean? Maybe when I see you I'll become the wire on the trap, and we can take it back.

Our emotions are illusions, and your thoughts are crashing waves. They obey the laws of nature and mechanics. Everything goes back to a single clap. It's simple maths, we're all just mass. And my heart is plastic. We should package it up until we figure out a way to mass produce it.

I'm dreaming. But what does it mean if I dream about us? What does it mean if I dream? What does it mean if I dream about chemistry? What does it mean if I dream? What does it mean if I dream about us? What does it mean if I dream? What does does it mean if I dream about anything? What does it mean if I dream? What does it mean if I dream about falling asleep in my bed? What does it mean if I dream? What if when I'm dreaming I'm awake, and when I go to sleep that's when I wake up? What does it mean?
