 "Behind My Eyelids"
by Trent Lane

 As lashes close
I see my woes
Spread out like a carpet of bugs
 In absence of light
Pass visions of night
And shallow graves left halfway dug

Behind my eyelids
Is a world you cannot see
A place that's just for me
Behind my eyelids

You watch a tear
It trickles clear
And glistens on my skin
My liquid pain
Oh, would profane
 Please baby, let me in.

Repeat Chorus

"From the Futon"
by Trent Lane

There's no place to hide things
Under the bed
And nowhere to hide from what's true
Down here by the floor
My soul calls out "More!"
But knows that its cry won't get through
 

  From the futon
From the futon
Everything, always so low
From the futon
From the futon
I'm in limbo - how low can I go?
 

I don't have a headboard
Or boxspring of wire
My spirit's hit low altitude
The mattress is thin
It's itching my skin
And that isn't helping my mood
 

From the futon
From the futon
Everything, always so low
From the futon
From the futon
I'm in limbo - how low can I go?

"Icebox Woman"
by ?

You're an angel in black,
you sure have the knack,
of putting my heart
on the shelf in the back.
I'm waiting my turn
Oh! when will I learn?
My poor heart, you're giving it freezer-burn!

Yah!

"Birthday present for Jane"
by Mystik Spiral

Little Sister, Little Sister
You came into my life like a twister
What can I get you that haven't taken?
What can I get you that hasn't been killed by corruption and greed?
What can I get you that isn't tye-dyed, or just like you already have, or plastic, or not alive,
or so sad

Does anybody know
Does anybody know why we're here
Does anybody know
Does anybody know why we're here
Does anybody know
Does anybody know why we're here!
 

"OW! My Face"
by Mystik Spiral

I'm glad your happy watching my pain,
Burning crop circles on my soul's razor brain,
We had no love seen but you cut to the chase,
You're choppin off my nose to spite my face,

Ow, my nose.
Ow, my face.
Ow, my nose.
Ow, my face.

Oooooooowwwwwwwww!
 

"Working On The Railroad"
as interpreted by Mystik Spiral

One, two, three, four!

I've been working on the railroad...
Every pointless day!

I've been working on the railroad...
While my life gets pissed away!

 Can't you hear the whistle blowing?
Shatter my dreams in the morn!

 Can't you hear the capt'n shouting?
 Wish I was never born!

Psychic Refugee
 

The walls are closing in.
The ice is getting thin.
No place to be alone.
My house is not a home.

Psychic refugee. Psychic refu...
 
 
 

Moth to a Flame
 

You've hijacked my brain.
If you don't release me...
I'll go just the same.

Moth gonna fly, moth gonna fly, moth gonna fly from your love.

It's my personal hell, where I roast in my shell...
