Track Name: I've Got Powers
I've got powers
Track Name: Old Scratched Up Record
I'm just an old scratched up record
Just take my needle off and drag me away
You shoulda seen me in my brighter days
You shoulda seen me in my brighter days
I'm just an old scratched up record
Just take my needle off and drag me away
You shoulda seen me in my brighter days
You shoulda seen me in my brighter days

(days)

I woke one day to wrinkles
Flames flames wouldn't go out
I couldn't change so I started to shout

I fell asleep with the fryer cookin'
Dream dreamin whay to high
God was givin me a brand new start
Scaling warzones with a brand new heart

I'm just an old scratched up record
Just take my needle off and drag me away
You shoulda seen me in my brighter days
You shoulda seen me in my brighter days

(i woke)

(old scratched up record)

I'm just an old...

Ahh'tini hurriyati (Give me my freedom.)
Utluk ya deya (Let go of my hands.)
ih' neni ahh'taitou ( I have given you everything )
mustab khaitou (and left nothing for myself)
Ahh'tini hurriyati (Give me my freedom.)
Utluk ya deya (Let go of my hands.)
ih' neni ahh'taitou ( I have given you everything )
mustab khaitou (and left nothing for myself)

I'm just an old scratched up record
Just take my needle off and drag me away
You shoulda seen me in my brighter day
You shoulda seen me in my brighter days

(i woke)
Track Name: Unplugged
Ahh'tini hurriyati (Give me my freedom.) Utluk ya deya (Let go of my hands.)
ih' neni ahh'taitou ( I have given you everything ) mustab khaitou (and left nothing for myself)
Track Name: I Won't Speak
I had the time of my life
Don't ask me questions and give me riddles
You put me through so much hell
Don't tell me answers and don't give me more lies
Here near and father
Father I loved you and wondered why I had drowned in exile
I have questions I refrain to speak
'cause if you really feel me
If you really feel me then I won't speak
I won't speak (I won't speak)
Hey hey no no no no. (no)
If you really feel me then I won't speak
I hear you in the corner dripping by the leak
If you really feel me then I won't speak
I hear you in the corner dripping by the leak
Cast away in shadows look far from here
Old remembrances and new ones
Look far from here (no no no)
Track Name: U-Turns
For real, for real I loved you
But time is also for real and I don't love you
I don't feel it's true

Making u-turns, making u-turns
It's all over, I'm alright though
I'm not angry, but you know that you can be
Our romance was a fantasy
Our romance was a fantasy

I have felt you

I have felt you

I

I have felt you

I

I

I have felt you with

I
I
I

I have felt you with

I have felt you

I have felt you with

I have felt you

I have felt you with me in last night's memories
Blue dreams wake me, don't call me crazy
I'm not your baby, you can't quite place or replace me
Place me or replace me
Cut and paste me fold unlace me
Chase me chase me don't embrace me
Embrace me
Cut and paste me fold unlace me
Chase me chase me don't embrace me

Don't embrace me

Don't embrace me (cut and paste me)

Cut and paste me

Making u-turns, making u-turns
It's all over, I'm alright though
I'm not angry, but you know that you can be
Our romance was a fantasy
Our romance was a fantasy
Track Name: Swim Away
If you can swim then swim away
We'd be locked in if we chose to stay

Doctors of decor done me up well
They stitched me up with their strings of hell
My boat is sinking and they won't save me
My life's been a shrinking and they won't take us

If you can swim then swim away
We'd be locked in if we chose to stay
If you can swim then swim away
We'd be locked in if we chose to stay

The boat is sinking and they won't save us
My life's been a shrinking and they won't take us
Swim away, swim away (swim away)

Doctor's of decor stitched me up well
They stitched me up with their strings of hell
My heart is beating
And they won't save me
My life's been fleeting and the ships await me
The boat is sinking and they won't save us
Our life's been a shrinking and they won't take us

If you can swim then swim away
We'd be locked in if we chose to stay
Doctor's of decor stitched us up well
They stitched us up with their strings of hell (take us)
My boat is sinkin and they won't save us
My heart is a fleeting and they won't take us

(save us)
(wait for)
(chose to stay)

If you can swim then swim away
We'd be locked in if we chose to stay
If you can swim then swim away
We'd be locked in if we chose to stay

(if you can swim)

Cut up your calendars filled with lies
Sculpted robots constructed time
I had the plan to change this place
They nodded and gave me a pretty face

If you can swim then swim away
We'd be locked in if we chose to stay
If you can swim then swim away
We'd be locked in if we chose to stay

The maps are bleeding
We don't gotta clue
My life is fleeting I wish the old you knew
The maps are bleeding
We don't gotta clue
My life is fleeting I wish the old you knew
