I don’t know about the status quo, but my anecdote has a shadow Felt the grasp of the tentacle on my shoulder blade, now I’m getting cold I’m going home Please just leave me alone Chemicals are my camouflage In my mobile home, in my sweet mirage Lost my coat in the catacombs Now I’ve got to go because I’m getting cold I’m going home Please just leave me alone Feet together Hands apart Back against the wall with my head in the clouds Growing old with no antidote, but I can’t complain - it’s unoriginal Blame my fear on “no self-control” The writing on the wall is illegible Chemicals are my camouflage When I’m feeling safe I self-sabotage In my dreams I’m a cannibal, but I myself appear to be the one who’s edible Well I say set it, forget it It’s not too late Put down the machine, let’s concentrate Envision a timespan with no constraints Don’t shoot the messenger, commiserate Set it, forget it It’s not too late Put down the machine, let’s concentrate Envision a timespan with no mistakes Don’t shoot the messenger, commiserate

Kneel at the behest of ultimate forgiveness Nothing against the nest, but I’m just not that into togetherness Time to face a fact: we’re not getting second chance If you taste the taste, I’m afraid that there will be no turning back Get it together If we don’t start getting better we’re all doomed Nothing to do Nothing to see No one left to hear you Just another face Recognized at last! A thousand pennies for your thoughts One day wake up, next day you don’t Doesn’t matter what you do Up in the cloud there will be no tether left to hold onto Nothing to see Nothing to fear No one left to come to home to Everyone’s gone Doesn’t matter what you did, now it’s all doomed
3.
I give myself a confidence warning I lay alone under my bed Guess I might undermine myself often More than I’d like to admit (Wasting time undermining) Never want to be the one forgetting what makes my life all it is End up with nothing but regret Yes I’m wasting time undermining I’ve been wasting time undermining (Never saw my shadow again) Never saw my shadow again, but I suppose I wasn’t really looking for it Never saw my shadow again, but to be fair I wasn’t paying attention Never saw my shadow again (Where is my shadow? Where is it?) I give myself a confidence a confidence warning Look me in my eyes I’m cinnamon again Guess I know a thing or two about being lonely Nothing left to do but begin again

Raw Animal 02:49
Regardless of your age When you’re standing by the lake I see it on your face, and I understand your pain Regardless of the waves, it always stays the same I see it on your face, and I understand your pain I understand the pain What in heaven’s name are you? Some kind of raw animal We don’t have a chance in hell Get a grip or get a clue What in heaven’s name are you? Some kind of raw animal Nothing in our futures clear We’ll reappear as something new I see it on your face, and I understand your pain I understand the pain
5.
Accidental holiday I fall into the trap either way I’m lazy-eyed & scatterbrained Avoiding the mistake Do you want to hide? Spending every moment with your head in the sand Does it make you feel any better? Why languish in these confines? Ominous & vacant, you are the gatekeeper of your own future A quiet retreat Deep in the atmosphere The warm hand of hospitality is extended to the visitor (from far & near) Accidental holiday My secrets safely hidden away I lay around imagining a final soft embrace
6.
Beta Magic 01:52
Tell me: where did you learn to cooperate? All of your troubles will disintegrate I’m in darkness It’s been two decades since we spoke but I recognize your voice like it’s the morning we awoke
7.
Obsidian.exe 01:46
Whenever I lose my way, my guiding light is your shining face It’ll never fade to grey Feel like I’m knee-deep in my grave Or am I reborn into waves of obsidian every day? My understanding fluctuates If I live or die, am I going to smile? Am I going to have to be the one to decide whether or not to wear a disguise? I’ve grown weary of the mask wearing itself I become a shell of myself Well if I never disemminate my fears will your embrace hold water or evaporate? I make a wish I’m wide awake I’m trapped in a scarlet haze I want you to remain
8.
Tell me the truth I’m waiting for you 100 mistakes I can’t explain Begin again I shred my second skin again Tell me the truth I’m waiting for you (Call me up, I’m waiting now)
9.
Cerulean 20% 03:13
Some days I feel like I’m already dead Other days I’m just getting started If I were comatose, I’d understand but I buzz like a gnat trapped in rubber cement I sneeze down my shirt I butter my bread I still can’t comprehend Tell me: what is the point of the slog? If I die tomorrow all is lost Some days I feel so misunderstood Nothing I say comes across as it should All my friends blame Mercury retrograde but in my opinion we’re halfway afraid the puzzle pieces won’t align and our graves will reward our mistakes Tell me: what is the point of the slog? Am I alive or have I been dead all along? Tell me: why do we embrace the false when the true is sleeping in our arms?
10.
Hollow as a tree fallen in the meadow I believe the lies I drink to be sweeter than the fruits of my reality Shallow as a leech at the bottom of a poisoned creek A shadow in the weeds whispered gently to me all its secrets
11.
Can I ask a question? I must know Let me get that answer even if it’s bold Because I want to know how the judges find out Let me get to know all your troubles Help me help you out
