Prelude 01:22
(instrumental)
2.
The Trough 03:53
the tables all turn and the children they learn that the lessons repeat themselves the winners become losers beggars become choosers round and round and round we go so if I made a world where we’re free would we grow so quick to think there’s more that we need? if you throw in the mix God’s trick that we are sick and commanded to be well still out of the blue came me and you and I hope that will see you through your days I will see you again my girl not in a kingdom or a cavern right where we left it this love we made all I can hope for you wherever you find your better days
3.
Trapdoor 03:31
through the trapdoor see what is beneath you and all the kings with which you feast we sing songs to the rhythm of the steps of your feet so put us down below where we can’t compete but soon this too shall pass that you bite off more than you can chew when the lid pops off it starts at the top realize what’s coming back to you save me, she said I’m waiting for some great big hand to strike justice onto me spare me, while you found comfort all around we slaved for nothing underground we’re back to exact what was done through the trapdoor with your creature comforts I hope you find that out here in the cruel world you’d never survive in a land where your big old belly grins just a bunch of fat faces following a false wind
4.
Tea Leaves 03:37
one faithful commandment dripping down sipping the reflection from the leaves and I know the future holds a traitor who is waiting in the wings slow and steady kills the race first to last and last to first we never tire, never thirst you knew best, but you got me into this mess one golden rule broken bleeding trust burdening the branches of this tree and we know the hopeful fold under fifteen hundred tons of speed who’s counting on who?
5.
Malfunction 06:01
all of these days I could never dream breaking my back just so I don’t feel a thing cause you are always what I hoped to be better and brighter to help move us along I’m stuck in a rut like a punch to the gut and it’s gonna take some time to roll with this one too no matter the worry that weighs heavy on your mind today is what sees tomorrow through but on and on it goes and don’t let it get you down I never wanted any of this for you now I’m never getting through one of these days I hope you find a dream break the bonds and carry on through anything but you are always what I hoped to be better and brighter to help move us along I’m stuck in a rut like a punch to the gut and it’s gonna take some time to roll with this one too no matter the worry that weighs heavy on your mind today is what sees tomorrow through I never wanted any of this for you this bed I made and your doubts finding proof now I’m never getting through

Swamp Thing 04:13
raise no alarms get taken by the hand to another land way past Maggie’s farm gonna get down groove ‘til you really can’t move gonna get down groove ‘til you really can’t move hey there little man mama never told you ‘bout Quicksand they slipped it under your tongue so discreet goodbye to those shiny new front teeth where am I? who am I? don’t reach for the sky to live you must die who are you to say that we can’t come into this place? I fear no darkness we are vain, not heartless raise the alarms the way you’d scream in a bad dream go tear down Maggie’s farm Euphorio’s gone get on the move euphoria’s long gone get on the move no more little man innocence swallowed by the quicksand now get out burn down the Diamond Ring they turned Kid Cousin to a swamp thing
7.
progression leading upward and onward on past eternity learned lessons urging on sad and somber and never cease to be work your hands to the bone wear the hours down the children sit all alone when there’s no one left around see, you’ll never know the truth of consequence ‘til you reap what you sow you’ll never know the truth of consequence ‘til you reap what you sow ring ‘round the barren slopes of a nation taking more than it needs a trembling deep in their bones the smiles all turn to frowns while kings sit still on their throne the walls come crumbling down
