Track Name: A Monster that I Made
Well I went and made myself a monster
And he asked me to show him the world
But God knows where you'd take such a creature
With sharpened teeth and claws all black and curled

Kicked out of cities and forbidden from town
We rode a trail less traveled
Walked across the desert and we sailed across the sea
We trailed the asphalt for gravel

Oh the places we'd go
Oh the things we did see
Meandering across the planet
Just my monster and me
And me

As the time went on I felt a changing
The travels dulled his claws and trimmed his teeth
It seemed as though my monster was fading
But seemingly the loneliness increased

I watched him stand in awe of the forest
He was strangely brilliant in the flowers
And one day he walked into the ocean
And I returned to my world of roads and towers

But, oh the places we'd go
Oh the things we did see
Meandering across the planet
Just my monster and me
And me

Oh the places we'd go
Oh the things we did see
Meandering across the planet
Just my monster and me
And me
Track Name: Fighting Fires
Nyquil gives me nightmares and I have a certain theory
That the sickness is converted into fear, stress and fury
And I dreamt I was a firefighter
Keeping my own home from burning
Down
along the edge of drunkenness and sobriety
I tried to write a song about the horrors of society
So I went and read the daily news and
Learned about monsters disguised as
People
give me nightmares and I have a certain theory
That if we were just tired more we wouldn't feel so weary
All the God forsaken time
It's time I got my whole life back in
Line
up and see the history of man is taking place
And look no further than the bones plastered in your pennant face
And think about all the years
That you've just let saunter on by

I am always fighting fires in my dreams
It seems I am afraid of loosing everything

Hot sauce horrifies me 'cause I got some in my eye one time
And I found out that with some burns, water must run through your eyes
And patience and endurance were the
Two big things I learned about that
Day
to day I wonder whether something better is even out there
Then I get up from my bed and rub my eyes all wide and red
It never ceases to amaze me that I have been at this for five whole
Years
go by as we're all fighting aging, waging time's undying war against our bloodshot eyes
I hope I get to sleep tonight and dream about water running through my eyes and not my
Hands
are quite the useless things, writing letters, plucking strings
and looking for others to hold and rubbing eyes that burn and sting
I have a certain theory that every day it's getting harder to get by

I am always fighting fires in my dreams
It seems I am afraid of loosing everything
Track Name: Alien Life
I see faces in the fire and I see the cars go by
I see the smoky greenish color in the exhaled breath of lies
I see light bulbs twitching in their suffocated glow
I see the path all poised and perfect but I don't know where to go

I see people running from the monster inside me
He's big ugly and blue and red
And orange and black and green
And he speaks in garbled language though I know he'd like to shout
Everyone please run there is a monster on my out

So please push my from this rocket
I would like to fall up to the sky
And land on some alien planet
To start a brand new
Alien Life
Alien Life

I see shadows in reverse, you know they stand so tall at noon
I see that you're all tangled up in your silly little swoon
Girl you give your love away and you save none for yourself
And when I see you all to sorrowful I cannot help but help

So please push my from this rocket
I would like to fall up to the sky
And land on some alien planet
To start a brand new
Alien Life
Alien Life

When the time comes that I am shoved
Out into the atmosphere
Well I wouldn't mind it in the least if you'd like to come along my dear

So please push me from this rocket
I would like to fall up to the sky
And please, can we jump from this rocket
We could fall, just you and I

So please push my from this rocket
I would like to fall up to the sky
And land on some alien planet
To start a brand new
Alien Life
Alien Life
