Track Name: Lighthouse
It keeps you tied to people that will harm you,
It even makes you feel guilt when you harm them,
I've built and enslaved humanity, but I'm at war.
Unfortunately I can't win,
For my nemesis is far more influential than I am.
Track Name: She Might Say "Thick Jazz; Meet Jordan and The Shimmering Artificial Bulbs"
Not sure if I sing them in order, not sure if I sang all of it really, I improvise my vocal lines.

It hasn't been long since I've found what I did not seek,
The avalanche of emotions, the theft of sanity,
Enslaved to her, I might say, though I seek more,
She does not know.

To know how distance can be so aggressive,
When she's on earth whilst being my life,
For as long as I knew, I felt confusion,
The worst nightmares, in the waking imagination,
I think what I had found might not be lost,
Not until the day I leave.
Track Name: Amnesia; The Zaleplon
