Track Name: Battered Stuicases - Vainglorious
Why don't you get off the leash
of Pavlov's pride
satisfaction salivating
the favor of your dripping teeth

when I give I give freely
when I give I give freely
when I give I give freely
when I give I give freely
when I give...

Where do you get off
I'm not your dog baby
you're mine.
Track Name: Battered Suitcases - Alone
Got here alone
As alone as anyone gets anywhere

Got here alone
As alone as anyone gets anywhere
a journey shackled inside and out
with heavy totes
and the paradoxal confusion of perpetual uncertainty
my sense of humor, my savior
my soul makes my outlook
so personal, so fine

Got here alone
reacting to the same fucked up world
like every other American kid
and I don't know anyone
who gets it, gets me, gets anything
what I hear in the scattered moans of music
I see, I feel, but one riled look in the mirror
and my insanity's apparent, alarming, yet dead.

Got here alone
and there's nothing quite like it
and no way I'm sharing this path
one day I look up and there
in the bright of day, a feather falling
once in the sky now beneath my feet
an instance later I feel the descent
of a thousand birds and I'm encompassed
and hard pressed to choose between
the flock and my own scattered feather thoughts
I got here alone.
Track Name: Normal
I'm as American as Saturday Night Live
just another sad sort cha cha choking on the pie
I step up to plate, I never understand why
I can't hit that homerun, its just another pop fly

I'm as American as Marilyn Monroe
just not sure what to make of GI Joe
I holler eenie, meenie, it won't let me go
feel like I'm stuck on a ride to an all time low

Excuse me if I seem a little amiss
but I can't seem to see myself clear of all this
I try to get along, I just end up pissed
at all the things people say and the things they dismiss

you tell me I'm normal
just not normal enough
Track Name: Oblivion
Impaled on a fine line between focus and blur
that stark switch lost between split seconds in time

I wanna stay here for the shear
I wanna stay here for the shear
I wanna stay here for the shear
for the shear for the shear
oblivion of the space

Crystal clear crunch, smooth restless abandon
on the same tick of the clock it all seems to stop

Motionless suspension, failure to mention
thoughtless sole intention, soul intention, soul intention
Motionless suspension, failure to mention
thoughtless sole intention, soul intention
Mmmm and I am given

Blissful, as serious as first love, divine
alluring, still thirsty, ohhh I've run out of time

Drenched, quenched and benched in
Drenched, quenched and benched in
Drenched, quenched and benched in
Drenched, quenched and benched

By boundaries of limitless desire
This feverish spin
I turn as the world
oblivious to my dizziness.
