    Technically speaking, it's a 12 track album. The intro track is really track 00 and isn't counted. It's just an intro. All of the track indexes are off by 1 and it's kind of annoying.
    These are the things that make me an insomniac and fuel the imagery on this album...

Once upon a time

Once upon a time


Once upon a time the story goes
Once upon a time the story began
Once upon a time the story went
Once upon a time there lived a man

A man who lived inside of his head
In his head he built his world
In this world was love and hope
A love and hope for a certain girl

But, this girl did not notice
No, this girl did not care
This girl was unaware that
This man had some love to share

So, one day he tried to approach her
One day at the club
One day she might accept
But that day was still to come

This night she declined his offer
This night they danced alone
This night he remembered why
Once upon a time ago

Once upon a time the story goes
Once upon a time the story began
Once upon a time the story went
Once upon a time there lived a man


Once upon a time the story went
Once upon a time the story goes
Once upon a time the story began
Once upon a time there lived a girl

This girl she lived in her head
This girl she made her plan
Her plan for finding love
A love and hope from a special man

One day she declined an offer
The next night she danced alone
She never did find true love, nope
Once upon a time's no more

Once upon a time the story went
Once upon a time the story goes
Once upon a time the story began
Once upon a time there lived a girl


Once upon a time the story goes
Once upon a time the story began
Once upon a time the story went
Once upon a time there lived a man
Track Name: 2cMe
Every day is just another dream
When I'm living out my fantasy
The earth has gone up in flames
Tonight baby, it's just you and me
Track Name: Gnomes
At any point throughout the day
All over the entire world,
At least one person is napping
Be it a boy or a girl

Young or old, tall or small
They close their eyes and dream,
They go to sleep a bit restless
And imagine forests green

In the skies the dragons fly
And Apollo’s lute is played,
People dream of pretty princesses
In open fields they lay

Dreaming of new bosses
And new jobs that make them smile,
Dreaming of all these little things
Makes them happier for a while

But there’s something that they don’t know
I’ll give you a little hint,
Those dreams are our portals
To sneak in for a (short) bit

We solely live inside your dreams
We control your memories,
We’re the Nap Gnomes of Slumberland
And we do as we please.


We read(reap) your thoughts and feed upon
Forgotten memories,
We eat up all your failed hopes
And long lost fantasies

We like to twist up the fabric
Of your forgotten past,
We recreate your history
And we can do it real fast

We slowly change your memories
So you no longer know what’s true,
We think it’s funny to confuse you
We love it through and through

You humans make it easy though
It’s like you want us here,
You always want to cover up
What you gaze at in the mirror

You pretend that you never did
Those many hurtful things,
You imagine that you’re a good guy
You wear false angel wings.


You birthed us without knowing
Nurtured our race’s course,
Now we take advantage because
(Now we’ve taken over)
We’ve unlocked all your doors

I come to you on this day
With a small peace offering,
I’ve gotten old, fed on many souls
And vanished wedding rings

But I’ve grown tired of the life
That I used to live,
I want you to remember
All of the real things that you did

If you stop pretending
And instead live honestly,
I’ll give you back your dreams
So you can claim your true reality.

No, I don't want to be a hippie
Don't need patchouli
Don't want your scabies

No, I don't want to give you a miracle
Fuck your miracle
I'll a killa your cereal

No, I don't want heady grilled cheese
Grilled cheese don't please
Want a Baconator Wendy's

No, I don't, No I never will be
Trusting of you, fuck you
I'll never trust a hippie.
Track Name: F-You-Ture's
the sleeping past
the crying strange
the sorrow's gone
the silly stays
the songs i see
the things i say
the place to be
the edge is frayed
the fallen branch
the hidden moon
the wealthy son
the broken broom
the rake of spades
the ace of life
tomorrow comes
after tonight
parks are emptying
in the streets
demanding change
we want to see
peaceful piece
on the tele-vee
the future's here
for you and for me

the future's here
for you and me

tomorrow we fight
tomorrow we sin
tomorrow we walk
tomorrow begins
tomorrow we were
tomorrow we are
tomorrow we stand
tomorrow we sore
tomorrow we join
tomorrow we stay
tomorrow we sing
another way
tomorrow is near
tomorrow is far
tomorrow reverse
admire you car
tomorrow i say
tomorrow i beat
tomorrow i want
what i can see
tomorrow with him
tomorrow with she
tomorrow is here
for you and for me

the future's here
for you and me

Track Name: Rainy
Gee I'm glad it's raining
There's always something to be thankful for
I'm awfully glad it's raining
Cause no one sees your tear drops when it pours


And no one knows the thunder
Is your heartbreak in disguise
They think the rainy nights
What put that sad look in your eyes


Sure am glad it's raining
The gentle rhythm soothes the pain inside
I'm glad the stars aren't shining
A wounded warrior needs a place to hide


I thought I had found someone
I could count on til the end
What she wanted was a hero
All I needed was a friend


Gee I'm glad it's raining
I hope the morning sun won't come up soon
As long as it keeps raining
No one knows my heart broke right in two


I thought I had found someone
I could count on til the end
What they wanted was a hero
All I needed was a friend

Sure am glad it's raining.
I'm awfully glad it's raining
Track Name: Vincent
sing it
all away
sleeping birds
chirping stray
thick rain
sulk in may

vincent


picture blue
painted sky
golden door
closed tight
sticky dreams
awaken night

vincent


Wooden box
painted blue
cracked and stained
pools of glue
traded two
for dreams of you

Vincent


break the right
stomp the left
death is night
write us last
passing prose
lasting lose

vincent


Eat up
drink down
Spit out
get bounced
live down
wake up


vincent


lost day
another one
left over
more due
never learn
begin again

Track Name: Stars
it's time to
say good bye to you
it's time to go home

it's been fun
but the time is done
it's tiring on the run


maybe we'll meet again
maybe i won't want to
but it's time to say good bye to you


it's been fun but
it's been too long
it's time to move along



dry your mind / eyes out
wipe away the foam / tears
atone before you're alone

find a distant / different star
close your eyes and wish
be thankful that you exist

maybe we'll meet again
if i want to / maybe i wont want to
it's time to say good bye to you

because it's time to
say good bye to you
it's time to go home
