Lyrics

Unbelievable

Written By: Louis Franck

The way that you cross your legs is on and on and on
The way that you groom yourself on and on and on
It’s unbelievable; its unbelievable, how you do it

The way that you give yourself on and on and on
The way that you praise yourself on and on and on
It’s unbelievable; its unbelievable, how you do it

The way that you live your life without a thought
The way that you try to get all and all and all
It’s unbelievable, how you do it

The way that you use your look to get your own, oh no
The way that you use yourself on and on and on
It’s unbelievable; its unbelievable, how you do it

The way you break down
The way you shut down

It’s hard to understand
What's in your mind
When you behave
The way you do

It’s the mirror on the wall
The shadow of your soul
That shows your inner world
It’s the smile, the smile
That kills with your pain inside
That you give when I'm down

Crucify

Written By: Louis Franck

Get out of this hole
Out of this depression you're in
Get yourself just a little bit better
You've gotta get out
You've gotta shout it all and out
Take the pill if it makes you feel better

You've got to reach out
You've gotta get on and out

Jump out of your hole you don't know the way it feels
Go out of your hole, out of this depression you're in
Get yourself just a little bit better

Out of your hole, out of this depression you're in
Get yourself just a little bit better
You've got to shout it out
You don't know the way it feels

Hurt it out and shove it out
You hold it out, hold it out
You don't know the way it feels

Get, out of your hole, out of this depression you're in
Take the pill if it makes you feel better

You've got to come up
To, the light
You've got to shout it out
You've got to hold it out and out
If there's a way for you to feel the pain
Get yourself just a little bit better

Hold it out and shove it out
You shout it out, hold it out
You don't know the way it feels

All the pain that’s in your life
All the down that’s in your life
All the pain, all the pain that brings you down that’s in your life
All the pain that holds you down, crucify, that holds you down
Holds you down, brings you down, all the pain that's in your life
That brings you down
Take a pill if it makes you feel better

Take the pill if it makes you feel better

Take the pill

Machine

Written By: Louis Franck

Instigate and animate and annotate and

Masturbate your machines

Integrate and resonate and fornicate and

Breathe into your machines

The colorful wings of a butterfly

That smacks on your computer screen

The way you put your hands

On the keys of your machine

You save your beliefs in your machine X2

I know the higher sense

That you feel when you're plugged in

I know the higher brain

In the guts of your machine

You save the face of your machine

Your machine

Irate, cogitate, agitate

Interface your machine

The powerful light that radiates

From the screen of your machine

The way you're mesmerized

By the speed of your machine

You save all the work of your machine

You save all your thoughts in your machine

I know the higher waves

That you feel with your machine

I know the joy you feel

When you're mind is a machine

Your machine X2

Calculator, emulator, agitator, integrator, inhalator, incubator

M,m,m,m,m,m,m, machines

Machines

Instigator, terminator, integrator, annihilator, calculator,

T,t,t,t,t,t,t,t, machines

Machines

I know the higher waves

That you feel with your machine

I know the joy you feel

When you're mind is a machine

You save yourself in your machine

You are the same as your machine

You're machine X2
