Track Name: Portal
Sometimes
I want to kill in my soul
Like a rage
In my pocket, it's burning, it's burning
Sometimes I wish for a halo
Sometimes I wish for a bigger club
But not you
You're my digital angel
Portal to the outside world

Express
Confess, watch it all from right here
I'm immune
To the fine print, accept it I accept that
There's nothing like infatuation
To fill all the corners of the mind
Angle bracket, semi-colon dash
Parenthesis to the
outside world
Track Name: Gray Matter
In this town there are only two ways to be
I want to throw my gold into the
fire and see which comes to me
In this town I'm unlucky as a charity poster
child
I'm almost gone my bags are packed even this town has been
defiled

It's getting harder to stand up tall, when you learn you'll just
fall back down
There's always been winners and losers
Feels like they're all
preselected in this town

In this town there is just one marker of
success
Beauty here is judged comparative to anywhere else more or less
In
this cold convoluted town I feel my fate is set
Though love for her is leaving
me she hasn't left me yet

It's getting harder to stand up tall, when you
learn you'll just fall back down
There's always been winners and losers
Feels
like it's predestination in this town

hyahoh
hyahoh

Feels like they're
all preselected in this town
When you learn you'll just fall back down
Feels
like it's predestination in this town
Track Name: Suburbia (complex commercial domino)
Suburbia, there's no convincing you
You're a walled escape from things bad people do
No struggle to convince you perception's what counts
Sustainable on the backs of names you can't pronounce

Complex commercial domino
Complex
commercial domino

Patiently you've waited for heaven to arrive
With awkward love that you make to feel alive
Outlets and cars, they make a hell of a town
As we build you up just to knock you down

Complex commercial
domino
Complex commercial domino

Knocking down
Knocking down
Falling down

Knocking down

Complex commercial domino
Knocking down
Knocking
down
Falling down
Knocking down
Track Name: Comparison
Your body is a work of art, it's a work of art

But the machinery of my body
gets me around, gets me around ya
The machinery of my body just gets me
around

I don't suppose anyone knows which way to the laws of
attraction
Hetero is as hetero does, I'm finding it hard to react

But the
machinery of my body gets me around, gets me around ya
The machinery of my
body just gets me around to where you are

When a boy and a girl make a noise
like thunder
boy and a girl make a noise like thunder
boy and a girl make a
noise like thunder it's a work of art

Your body is a work of art, it's a
work of art

But the machinery of my body gets me around, gets me around
ya
The machinery of my body just gets me around to where you are

When a boy
and a girl make a noise like thunder
boy and a girl make a noise like
thunder
boy and a girl make a noise like thunder the rest of the story's
already been done
Track Name: Graduated Lines
It was the ideal day for outcasts to be relegated
to the bottom rung of this
ladder that we're on
A day for picking favourites
A day for letting people
know they put their noses were they really don't belong

So long to all those
high-school dancing days

A social circumstance, in fumbling 'round the
outcasts you are
leaping over puddles you are pretending that you see
Just
like the drunken sot who stumbles 'cross my parking lot
his leaping over
nothing sure seems crazy to me

So long to all those high-school dancing
days

The messages abound, all these graduated lines
The closer to
perfection the more cast-off left behind
Is it just the game, the thrill of
being chased?
Every heart's belonging, someone else's out of place
I stepped
out of line you watched me make a scene
I saw someone worthy in myself is all
I mean
Crowds change off their clothes, the queens may change their name
It's
never really over until everyone's the same

A broken nose is sore but
waiting for an hour or more for someone to acknowledge you is not so quick to
heal

So long to all those high-school dancing days
