Track Name: Get Out of the Corn Maze
Get out!

Drawn in by ghouls
And led into the dark
Promised life eternal
But guided into fog
Losing footing with no way to run
Holding out for something but unsure as to what

Get out (Get out!) of the corn maze
There’s nothin’ for you in there
Get out (Get out!) of the corn maze,
And stop living in fear

Temptations abound
At each and every turn
The markers are all covered up with time
Losing footing, with no way to run
Holding out for something, but unsure as to what

Get out (get out!) of the corn maze
There’s nothin’ for you in there
Get out (get out!) of the corn maze,
And stop living in fear
Track Name: In the Park
Stop just short of stretching out your allies
To their breaking point, before they come undone
Hold tight to the silent assumptions
Revered for their ability to fold all wrongs to right

When you’re on your own, in a world so cold
Do whatever it takes to get you through the night,
When I’m on my own, in a world so cold
I do whatever it takes to get me through the night

Resist the temptations to flee
In a new direction, most frail and carefree
Scattered all along the history of one’s mind
Weathered up and down, a hangover in its prime

When you’re on your own, in a world so cold
Do whatever it takes to get you through the night
When I’m on my own, in a world so cold
I do whatever it takes to get me through the night
To get me through the night

When you’re on your own, in a world so…
Track Name: Major Bros.
And we never change
We prefer to age
We are but the lucky ones

We’re just a normal group of guys
Trying to get between your eyes,
And if you’re feeling it let us know
Get your ass on the floor!

And we’ll never know
Our outcome’s goal
We are but those that remain

We’re just a regular group of boys
Trying to make some rockin’ noise
And if you’re feeling it let us know
Get your ass on the floor!

And we never change
We prefer to age
Me and my major bros,
Me and my major bros who already know
Track Name: New Rocks
Healing Time!

Come down and join us, let’s live for a little while
Abandon all suspicions, each second reconciled
Shake off all notions; they’ve failed us in the end
Can we redirect our thinking, and as brothers make amends?

Our method is rusting, and it’s only second best
These egos are crushing, as if they weren’t weightless

Make haste there’s no time, for standing on the fence
Join up with us, the light side
Embrace your ancientness
No need for fear now, we’ve licked it in the past
Accept the danger and risks here, and join our timeless dance

Our method is rusting, and it’s only second best
These egos are crushing, as if they weren’t weightless

Our method is rusting, and it’s only second best
These egos are crushing, as if they weren’t weightless
If I spoke in a universal tongue, maybe we’d all understand
Evolving consciousness, I demand!
Track Name: No Reward is Worth This
I know the road is gold
But these visions have come unrolled
And yet I try to find a place in time
I’m out of touch, we’re out of line (we’re out of life!)

And I know that time heals all
But I can’t know and let her go
Still it feels she only visits us at night
I am only a mortal man
Will I fear this for the rest of my life?
I have only a second guess

It feels the fantasy is gone
A shimmer of life long drawn on
But still I’ll find a way to make this right
I’m out of line, we’re outta’ time (we’re out of time!)

And I know that time heals all
But I can’t know and let her go
Still it feels she only comes to us at night
She is only black and white
I will feel this for the rest of my life
I have only a second guess

And I do know that there is more than gold…

But I know that time heals all
And I can’t know and let her go
Still it feels she only visits us at night
I am only a mortal man,
I will feel this for the rest of my life
I have only a second guess
Track Name: Herd Poisoning
So this is where we barely stand,
Hearts on stakes and heads in hands
Anchored to our battle post,
In wait of touching soft skin of hope

Can we? Can we resist?
The images held out for us by our herders
When we stand and act as men?
Water threatening to boil over topside,
Our only option short of shame is to surely…

Have faith in our ability
To see though these marvelous illusions
Propagated by our own species
We must reclaim our ancient energy!

The wave we seek won’t come as planned
A surprise we’ll feel in both two hands

A blind eye
A sweet dream

Have faith in our ability,
To see though these marvelous illusions
Propagated by our own species
We must reclaim our ancient energy!

This is our test! This is our chance!
We best not fail
Fail or else!

Our only option short of shame is to surely…
Track Name: Dreamery
We’re on verge of expanding everything that we feel
Distant images on the horizon, beckoning
Who are we to deny them?

We’re seeking something that doesn’t show
Under thick layers of time cycles,
Now is the hour to dissipate
Come into another mind and state!

Everyone’s tightly woven in
Sewn into a patch of blanket’s end
Illusion of separateness comes unglued
We’re flying while riding on truth

We’re seeking something that doesn’t show
Under thick layers of time cycles,
Now is the hour to dissipate
Come into another mind and state!

Take a sledgehammer to these mental walls
Free all prisoners inside,
When we set foot past the borders of ours minds, we’ll find
The sooner we admit that it’s all or none
The stronger we will be for this journey
Raise each other up in harmony
Don’t wait and see, join me!
Don’t wait and see, join me!
Track Name: 668: The Neighbor of the Beast
Your exit was without warning,
A shock to all the limbs
Downing in awe we’re so silent
Dare we ever breathe again?

We’re so very ill prepared
For this tragic tear
And now we’re crawling backwards,
Seeking new masters
He’s now the neighbor of the beast

We’re still listening for your songs
Waiting patiently, even if it takes all night long
Visions of expressions on his face
Transcend this physical plane

We’re so very ill prepared
For this tragic tear
And now we’re crawling backwards,
Seeking new masters
He’s now the neighbor of the beast

One more time to say goodbye
One last time to say goodnight
One more time to say goodbye!
One last time to say goodnight…

Because he rocked, he rolled, he lived, and he stole!
He shocked, he awed, man he gave his all!
And he’s now the neighbor of the beast
They’re probably enjoying a vast grand feast
He’s now…
