Track Name: Spider Hole
A midnight candle holds my gaze
A sudden spark and I'm awake
I kiss the dark I haven't died
A sudden spark and I'm alive

Midnight candle can you feel my fear?
Will you shun my sorrow, make it disappear?
Cause I've been trying not to show I'm scared
But it's getting harder, can you feel my fear?

Now I'm an outlaw in a spider hole
Not safe to stay but nowhere to go
Strung out in the desert with cactus plants
A waking nightmare in a toxic trance
Track Name: Cosmic Limousine
Had a dream I lost my teeth
I think it's time I had a change in scenery
I've been spending all my time in a basement
Playing 64

About that dream
I think it symbols decay
I've been spending all my time
Thinking about the past

Well nothing lasts
That is unless you make a name for yourself
Riding that cosmic limousine

But don't be afraid
That's just how we're made
Yeah that's the way
You gotta set your spirit free
