Track Name: Top Zero
I'm not as bright as I used to be
My condition is down to me
As I wander around in a state of confusion
Consider this an unfair warning
I'm gonna be sick in the morning
But I've felt it before and I know that I can take it

It's Top Zero

I've put up with the agony of
Drinking this bottle of misery
Can't stand to see your face in a state of confusion
I could keep on feeding you lies and
The truth would only be despised
But I've tried it before and I know that I can't fake it

The walls I've built are crashing down
A new age is coming around
And I'm learning things that I didn't want to know

It's Top Zero

I'm not as bright as I used to be
My condition is down to me
As I wander around in a state of confusion
I could keep on feeding you lies and
The truth would only be despised
But I've tried it before and I know that I can't fake it

The walls I've built are crashing down
A new age is coming around
And I'm learning things that I didn't want to know

It's Top Zero
Track Name: 2nd Guess
I've got the urge to second guess, oh no
It's hard to resist
Good intentions should be laid to rest, oh yeah
Due to a lack of interest
I've got the urge to second guess, oh no
It's hard to resist
Good intentions should be laid to rest, oh yeah
Due to a lack of interest

I may be right, this could be my best
I may be wrong but that's the test
Once I'm going it's hard to stop
I'll do my worst to get what I want

I make myself an easy target so shoot me down
I found the plot and then I lost it so shoot me down
Look out for the second guess
Two swinging dicks in a pissing contest
Look out for the second guess

I've got the urge to second guess, oh no
Good intentions should be laid to rest, oh yeah
I've got the urge to second guess, oh no
Good intentions should be laid to rest, oh yeah
Track Name: Invitation
Sunlight ripping the lid off the darkness
It is the coming of another day
If this is gonna be the cost of living
I gotta pay for it in my own way
Last night I was on the hunt for oblivion
Was never on the run
I'm not waiting for an invitation
I will be the only one

Summon strength to keep on going
While the dread comes creeping in
When I have to answer for my indiscretions
I'll suffer in the skin I'm in
Last night I was on the hunt for oblivion
My work was never done
I'm not looking for initiation
I will be the only one

I know the problem and see the solution
Gonna carry on
I know my answer and see your confusion
I will be the only one

I will be the only one
I'm not looking for initiation
I will be the only one
I'm not waiting for an invitation
Track Name: Compulsion
I didn't want to be alone again
But it happened again and now here I am
I didn't want to be broken again
But it happened again and now here I am
I didn't want to be alone again
But it happened again and now here I am
I didn't want to be broken again
But it happened again and now here I am

I must like it and I do
Can always find it and I do
To stay behind it like I do
Well this is love, this has gotta be love
I must like it and I do
Can always find it and I do
To stay behind it like I do
Well this is love, this has gotta be love
Or compulsion
Compulsion

I drink to my annihilation
I drink to the imminence of his coming
I drink to my annihilation
I drink to the imminence of his coming
(* from Aldous Huxley's novel "Brave New World")

Now I'm out here on my own again
Cuz it happened again and now here I am
And I'm lost out in the cold again
Cuz it happened again and now here I am
Now I'm out here on my own again
Cuz it happened again and now here I am
And I'm lost out in the cold again
Cuz it happened again and now here I am

I must like it and I do
Can always find it and I do
To stay behind it like I do
Well this is love, this has gotta be love
I must like it and I do
Can always find it and I do
To stay behind it like I do
Well this is love, this has gotta be love
Or compulsion
Compulsion
