Track Name: Not Free
what gives you the silly idea
that we're heading somewhere
we're not destiny's pawns but
we're causally locked

there is no culmination
that we're evolving into
evolution
is contingent

teleology is bullshit
even though we're programmed
we're dictated by prior causes
but we're still responsible

there is no culmination
that we're evolving into
evolution
is contingent
Track Name: You Might Not Be Right
what we need now is people who
can propagate empathy
so people can care for each other
otherwise we're all totally fucked
i'll just be sighing alone to myself
i'll just be sighing alone
why is it so hard for us
to see people as separate worlds?

if people don't realize
that we've all got opinions
and the truth's pretty hard to gauge
and you might not actually be right
just be aware that you might not be right
just try to be aware
we're all just trying to
figure out what we're supposed to do
Track Name: Can We Really Communicate?
can we really communicate
with just words?
i'll try
i'll try

i try to say
the right thing
but that's not
what comes out
of my mouth
i try to say
the right thing
but that's not
what comes out
it's just a bunch of words
Track Name: Gracie
gracie
you're the only one for me
oh, gracie
you're the only one for me
and the only reason why i
don't write every song about you
is 'cause i can't think
of any words that compare
but i just want you near me
all the time
but every note that i play
is about you in every way
Track Name: Forget It
forget
it, it's not
important
i just was thinking
nevermind
it's nothing

just
that i'm feeling like
you, oh
forget it
Track Name: I'm a Body
i am isolated inside of my body
human dream is to escape from my body

i can't find a way to get out of my body
i do not have, i am just a body
Track Name: Ernie's Got a Problem
ernie sits down with a headache
he's been thinking,
"how do i say what i want to
when all i've got are
words, just words?"

language can never fit the world
all of my attempts are failures
language can never fit the world
all of my attempts are failures
so, what now?
what now?

ernie's frustrations are growing
he's turned to music
"how do you hear what i'm saying
when all i've got are
notes, just notes?"

language can never fit the world
all of my attempts are failures
language can never fit the world
all of my attempts are failures
so, what now?
what now?
Track Name: Everything I Say
everything i say
is a failure
of articulation
Track Name: Should Care
why should
i care?
because if i don't
who will?

what can
i do?
why should
i care?
because if i don't
who will?
Track Name: Nerves
i've got these nerves that
i just can't shake, yeah
i'll try to be cool
if that's what'll get me to you

i'm talking too fast and i'm
not saying anything
i keep doing
all the wrong things with you

don't know why you're here
either it's pity or
i've got some charm
that i didn't know about
