Track Name: Tension in the Chicken Kitchen
Say we can't be

What's you? What's me? Anywhere you want to/got to be?
It's not what you see, what you call reality
It's what's in-between, the little things you'll never see
It's what we're made of. Or is it made up?

Afraid of what you'll say
Track Name: Slipper Staring
Our performance/frustations breed/s expectations that we try/strive to meet
And that we cannot, will not, ever
Expectations are the manifestation of a long and wanting
And a needing, beating, fleeting

Slipper staring's not/just a
Track Name: Ridged Chips
(varying verses)

You are speaking so infrequent

Paraphrasing wisdom

Track Name: Musician
Intervention, straying from an older mission
Making use of every favorable condition
No technician, fix it with a superstition
Statistician, masquerading rhetorician

Lay down your armaments and ammunition
Let go of all of your inhibitions
Make way for future generations missions
Musician sings/plays without an instrument

Intermission, spread disease, ignore emissions
Satisfy addiction to the television
No audition, no sign of a recognition
Hard to find a narrative free of omission
