Noise Maker 02:04
Oh it's rad. Everybody have some fun. I'm a noise maker, oh yeah Oh yeah, noise maker I'm a noise maker, oh yeah Oh yeah, noise maker

Destroy the balloons in this sterile room Colors are just begging me To feel something now Pressing all the buttons to do barrel rolls To simulate ejection I’ll go out loud A different me Can’t I just fake it? A different me All this for a heart Well I got a decent brain Hold my hand for the decision Hold my hand, let’s incision and pray There are no complications now Now go A different me Can’t I just fake it? A different me All this for a heart Well I got a decent brain Cramming fast food for thought at an open heart surgery You’ll learn a lot and I hope you get to see my face A different me Can’t I just fake it? A different me All this for a heart Well I got a decent brain Hold my hand for the surgery Hold my hand and count to three And pray there are no complications I wouldn’t be the same if I wasn’t me I wouldn’t be insane with a knife in me And I don’t need no complications I’ll go out cold and scared, bitter and confused Regretful of regretting all damaged, unamused Hold my hand for the decision Hold my hand, let’s incision and pray There are no complications I wouldn’t be the same if I wasn’t me I wouldn’t be insane with a knife in me And I don’t need no complications And if I die let’s do this right Jump up on the casket and party all night and go Go, now go Fast food

You’re a deal gone wrong Your alter ego is dead Your bite has no teeth And the monsters all stare Your paranoia is bright The medics say Hi Every cliche is great But the timing is off When you're coming down When you're coming down When you're coming down When you're coming down Food is a joke The room is too hot Nerve endings blow up You feel like you’re home There’s a smell on the stairs You move in morse code With salt in your kiss You’re a dead dial tone When you're coming down When you're coming down When you're coming down When you're coming down The party is now

The bones of my ancestors drag me down slowly Placing bets on my death During their lives they gave me plenty Though my life was their greatest regret The moon it shines with great disappointment I waited waiting for the sun Give me hope not darkness, not demons Cause I don’t have the strength left to run Read me stories of epic heroes and villains Lost with no imagination Where do I begin With a body weak and thin How do I do so much with so little Take your time going through my possessions I just want my heart And when I figure out my life’s bold ambition I’ll escape from the cold and the dark I was born to be someone to doubt my destiny On a cold January they screamed lover not a fighter And I don’t think I can take it anymore

Animal Urges 03:17
Look over your shoulder at how the west was won Stomachs are anxious and the waves they come And we try Try to understand How our mind forgets the importance of hands How animals deceive the laws of the lands And we try Try to understand Fate I can’t be the only one afraid Animal urge stands tall knocking down your door Everything I say and do, feel I want my own Animal urge is all we’re begging to be Absent energy entertains the ears The sun is setting bringing back your fears We try Try to understand Fate I can’t be the only one afraid Animal urge stands tall knocking down the door Everything I say and do, feel I want my own Yet animal urge is all I’m begging to be It’s all I’m trying to know It's all I’m scared to believe is inside me

And the surveillance says I really lost my mind somewhere out on the dance floor And I don't want it back My hands were up in the air A clear sign that I just don't care I don't want to find peace of mind When I'm on my feet and ready to grind On everything and everyone For a while my profile fit those in exile I didn't think I had a place to belong But when I want to fit right in With a shuffle and a grin I'll be a maniac causing your heart attack Come along with me I see it in your eyes You're ready to go You're ready to try Everything It doesn't matter what you want It doesn't matter who you know I bring no regrets to tomorrow I lead and you'll follow Come on, I'll be waiting for you Out on the dance floor I’ll be, I’ll be waiting

No, you don’t want to see the truth It’s all fat and dingy You’d rather see it and for that I commend you So carve it out of my spine Because I am feeling so dangerous So dangerously low Crossbones in cross hairs I wonder how much this cross Can truly bare it’s getting rather heavy Darling am I insane? Cause the fear of failure Is running wild and running over me Yeah, I know it hardly seems fair Yet you’ve only had your whole life to prepare For the biggest deal you built up inside your head Still the pervert in me wants a chemical reaction To peel your skin off to my satisfaction My dreams can’t be all the same All the same about you Step into the light To be the one that calls my name If I can’t be the one that you want I will be the one that you blame Baby, baby I love the fear of failure To get what you’ve never had Do what’s never been done, oh yeah So don’t delay the hands of fate at play Working hard Working hard to carry you home Though bones will break I will not fall I have the strength to do it all You’ll have the strength to carry me to my grave When I die please laugh At my sarcastic epitaph If I can’t be the one that you want I will be the one you ignore Baby, baby I love the fear of failure Baby, baby I love the fear of failure My baby, baby I love the fear of failure

For just once I’d like to get into a fight Your fists of fury against my heart of dynamite I count your breath I’d love to watch your tick tock stare Meet me at midnight When the beauty’s in the air Everyday I’m wild and I am free Everyday I cage a piece of me Every day Every day This is what you came here for You and I were made excited In slow motion and with lightning Back and forth our bodies jerking As art forms we’re always working Why can’t it always be this easy? Why can’t it seem unreal? Forget about science It always made us laugh All the words won’t promise anything will last To be alive is wonder I wonder if that’s insane On the streets tonight We’ll make chaos with our brains Everyday I’m wild and I am free Everyday I cage a piece of me Every day Every day This is what you came here for You and I were made excited In slow motion and with lightning Back and forth our bodies jerking As art forms we’re always working Why can’t it always be this easy? Why can’t it seem unreal?

Laying downtown Head embraced And I feel tired Face is a ghost And I know That I did something dumb Is she on arrival She’s on arrival I see myself on concrete slabs Lagging in your eyes I’m low on blood Low on cash High on the surprise Is she on arrival She’s on arrival The medics on the scene Are a picturesque blur of blood and fur Begging me to grow up to a world Where I control self control Meet my dream She is pure survival Meet my dream She will carry me home Is she on arrival She’s on arrival She will carry me home Is she on arrival

You got the tubes Removed from you And now we can play with you Just like we used to So wrap them up well Another story to tell And now we can play with you Just like we used to I can’t imagine what it’s like To say doctor, doctor dear Please play with my life Hooray you did not die Heaven was denied And all our cries were satisfied Cause you got the tubes To hell with ringing bells to visit you Did you feel our attempts to evacuate you From your dingy hospital tomb From everyone’s living room All our cries were amplified Cause you got the tubes When I saw you in the hospital room I had no reaction cause I was fine there once The sterile smell of the soap it made me Reconnect the lost thoughts of your death or survival I was a juror at your trial Furious cause it seemed rehearsed Like the driving route of the company hearse That’ll never run out of clients I admire your defiance Cause I didn’t get unglued As much as you needed to prove That you could be reassembled To try and find your peace I knew you could be reassembled To try to find your peace You got the tubes removed from you
