Track Name: Formula For Survival
come on now you mustn't be in a hurry. made your mind to kill some time. the train has gone but you can catch the next one. it will all be fine. just pick the right combination of stimulants to get you through the day. don't want a complication. medication's here to make you feel okay. come on now you mustn't act so nervous. awkward charm isn't charming anymore. you're about to meet some people who aren't afraid of showing you the door. put up your defenses. you know that i'd be joking if i said i didn't do the same. take leave of your senses. you wouldn't want to know the feeling of someone walking on your grave.
Track Name: Failed Vegan Anthem
had a dream that you ate meat again. not just fish but game from factory pens. didn't know just what to say. left my righteousness in younger days. we all cut our teeth on teenage politics. swore i'd cut my throat if i abandoned this. i'm not saying the rest might not all have their reasons. maybe local soy is out of season. maybe they're too poor or maybe it's culture. maybe they just don't care anymore. tell me you'll never get that lazy and i'll stop dreaming crazy.
