Track Name: Egypt 1
i meant that.
i love it when you see me
lying naked in bed
woken from my sleep
it's strange to see
to realize

how close you got
to me
please draw a picture in your head

forever in limbo
in dreams

it's strange to see to realize
how close you got to
please draw a picture in your head
to remember me

forever in limbo
in dreams
Track Name: Egypt 2
tell em the truth
do you believe in me?
when i see the tallest building in the city
it makes me wanna cry
cry
cry
cry

if i found a home
i'd want to be alone,
but i won't...

even when i'm fine
i wanna cry
cry
cry

It's the "city of brotherly love"
It's nothing but lies lies lies
Track Name: Egypt 3
why do lovebirds sing
even when their partners die?
theres nothing left to sing for

why do lovers lay awake
when the other one cries?
there's nothing worth seeing

this heretic (is) dead
a thousand and 1 things
that bring us pain
taking our dreams away
taking our soul away
you can't be the heretic
you dream of

why does blood turn to dirt
when it dies
clotting to stay alive
why does consumption turn to energy
to all our wasteful lives

this heretic (is) dead
a thousand and 1 things
that bring us pain
taking our dreams away
taking our soul away
you can't be the heretic
you dream of

the heretics dead
clotting to stay alive
Track Name: Egypt 4
i can still make it glow
glow as bright as the sun
reflecting off the water
wash away the blood
pooling at your sides
something i cannot forget

you wouldn't understand
i'm in a whitewash
i am backwards
something is wrong
again again again

i am broken
something is wrong again
again

I am in a whitewash
the drivers at the wheel
i am backwards
something is wrong again

i am broken
the whitewash is real

you wouldn't understand
i'm in a whitewash
i am backwards
something is wrong
again again again
Track Name: Egypt 5
this isn't a place for human dreams
these are mouse dreams

I think i'm living someones dream
i think the worlds turned against me
this couldn't be the life for me

on an open plain
on a darkened stage
in a linoleum cage
these are mouse dreams

i wish it was E A S Y to leave
Track Name: Stuck Livin' (Pure X)
stuck livin the same song
swear i must have done something wrong
‘cause i been feelin like this so long
something’s got to change

i’ll tear it down and build it up again
maybe then the light will let me in
oh god i’m going crazy, this has got to end
something’s gotta change now

stuck livin the same song
stuck livin the same song
stuck livin the same song

when all i wanna do is move on
but i’m waking up from empty dreams
i’m dying for something that means ANYTHING
