Track Name: Too Much Entertainment
"Act now!"
Her voice is just an echo
Our flags are raised
Now aren’t you entertained?
Why we don’t move forwards
Is beyond me
Too much information will make us all go blind
Hey

Sell out
It plays just like a movie
We overheat, van breaks down in the street
Reunite in ten years out of spite
Too much entertainment will make us lose our minds
Hey

I’m tired all the time of faking a feeling
And I don’t know the last time
I laid on my back and let myself drift
I’m tired all the time of faking a feeling

Drop out
And miss all of the action
You won’t belong
You won’t know you’ve been wronged
A life that doesn’t scare you is boring
Too much elation will make us settle down
Hey

Too much entertainment
Too much information
Too much entertainment
Too much light will make us go blind
Track Name: Static
It’s spring
The sun is a tonic
Shaking hands
In this moment
I want it

I could do it so much better now
If I could do it over somehow

And for a minute
Just for a minute
There’s too much static
There’s too much static
Track Name: I Am Here
I see a sign I don’t recognize
In soliloquy
I don’t mind its electricity

Ephemeral, chemical
About to disappear

Words of weight
Declaring I am here
I’m here

You sing but no sound
Comes out of your mouth
I’ve ever heard before

You wanted to shout
Your words are drowned out
By everybody else

You sing but no sound
Comes out of your mouth
Track Name: Volcano
The arch at Western’s coming down
A crack on Milwaukee swallowed this side of town
At night it’s hot
You smile at everyone
Come the day, the streets are empty

Murals on Kedzie are covered up
Volcano forming under the California stop
Some ten blocks south
It’s happened all before
Now it smells like gin and cheap perfume

Listen to the rumbling

The boulevard’s filled up with ash
The bars will beneath their own weight
They will collapse
After time, my neighbors will come back
And start the cycle over again

Listen to the rumbling
