Track Name: Lying Awake
the pillow case sweat stained stick to your face insomniac's dreamscape awaits
Lying Awake the Jersey knits piss stained wet from the fear the terror tears of days awake
Lying Awake sweet slumber escapes you skeleton quakes the shakes and the jimmy legs too
Lying Awake the Sandman won't take you to the Dreamworld where the nightmares might cease

Staring at the ceiling is getting a little older every moment my mind won't shut
Stuck in this rut it's never gonna break as long as I stay here lying awake

Lying Awake another mind takes you similar thoughts that cross into loss and madness
Lying Awake the nervousness breaks you cold sweats some chest heaves and rubber knees dance
Lying Awake the scent of detergents silently sweeps and creeps as the nasal bleeds itch
Lying Awake the rodents and insects every wing flap toe tap makes you twitch

Staring at the ceiling is getting a little older every moment my mind won't shut
Stuck in this rut it's never gonna break as long as I stay here lying awake

Lying Awake a single sound scares you maybe today's the day they might tear you to shreds
Lie in your beds they'll be of no comfort neither king queen nor court jester sized

Staring at the ceiling is getting a little older every moment my mind won't shut
Stuck in this rut it's never gonna break as long as I stay here lying awake
Track Name: Wary 'Round Willy
Willy cries like an angel laughs like a devil when an ant hill swims in the rain fall apocalypse
Says his grace with a greasy grim face when the tip tap tatter of the crack in the soffit drips over the window glass
Ribbons of rippling light trickle passed all the sheet rock blockin his messages to the outside

Willy screams at a rocking chair "GET YOU HIDE OUTTA THERE!" cuz nobody gets to rest where the monkey sits
Dressed in the best red polyester vest a bugle blarin taps at the elephants stomping the carpet shag
Tie the knot when the cat's bag in the bag of tricks a hand picked pyro technic light show

"So be wary 'round Willy" that's what Momma said silly don't come close to what's wrong in Willy's head it surprises most who don't spend no time with the little guy
So just smile and walk on by and don't you dare try to stare him in his criss crossed eyes
I'd take it from me that you better be wary 'round Willy

Willy works up an appetite by keepin up a tight grip on the ripped up shreds of his consciousness
Scratchin fleas with homicidal tendencies added up with a kings own confidence equals a volatile
Capped and bottled up shook up chemical imbalance at anyone who Willy walks by

"So be wary 'round Willy" that's what Momma said silly don't come close to what's wrong in Willy's head it surprises most who don't spend no time with the little guy
So just smile and walk on by and don't you dare try to stare him in his criss crossed eyes
I'd take it from me that you better be wary 'round Willy
