Track Name: Censor Me
Censor myself
Censor me
Be like the rest - Try to fit in
Accept the orthodoxy
No veering away
Too scared to take a stand

Censor me
Words cut
Censor me
Fit in

Can't say my thoughts and stand behind them
Part of the pack - Excised my mind
This shit can't last
I'm up to it
Rebuilt - I'm standing!

Gotta break these chains
The chains in my mind
Gotta fucking break out
Track Name: *Asterisk*
*Asterisk*

An asterisk after everything you say
Qualified response
Obviously not what you mean
Revers, back pedal, find a way out
Explain it all away
A temporary lapse

You've earned contempt from me
You'll never be believed

[2nd stanza goes here. ok]

There's nothing, There's nothing to you
You'll say anything
It's only blank behind your eyes

Your lies, your charade
There's nothing there

Explain it all away with an asterisk

Respect, Respect you've never earned

Explain it all away with an asterisk
Explain it all away with an asterisk
Track Name: Bioluminescence
I'm all lit up
I light my world
Living in a sea of darkness
I gotta stand alone

And you can see right through me
See right through
The light's within me
It's all I know

It's all I know

This world's so full or darkness
And I just - I just want to survive
I'll adapt any way I can
There's no alternative
This world will swallow you whole if you let it
That's just the way it is
No favors granted
And none asked
But my mind's still positive.
Track Name: Fame and Fortune
In front of the camera you've got the perfect portrait
Your life on display for the world to see
The mini-series airing tells your life story
You've got the fame and notoriety

Hit by fame
Hit by fortune
Onscreen - for the world to see
Hit by fame
Hit by fortune

In front of the camera you're someone else
A success when you've faked sincerity
Your face has brought you many a million
And lots of awards from the industry

Hit by fame
Hit by fortune
This is your ticket out!

You're on the covers
of the magazines
You're onscreen
for the world to see
Track Name: Adapting to the New World
Build yourself a house that floats on the sea
Go nocturnal and beat the heat
Adapting to the New World
Adapting to the New World

Mutate green skin to absorb sun rays
Buy a camel (cheap!) and pack supplies away
Adapting to the New World
Adapting to the New World
Adapting to the New World
Adapting to the New World

This world we've created
We've got to live in it, too
There's no going back
It's too late

Desalinate all your water supplies
Populate the moon cos we just can't survive
Adapting to the New World
Adapting to the New World

Barter what you've got for your basic needs
Learn to love the landfill, digging down on your knees
Adapting to the New World
Adapting to the New World
Adapting to the New World
Adapting to the New World
Track Name: We Are Not Just Solitary Beings
Friends help you out when you reach out and ask
Sometimes you know when your limit's passed
We are not just solitary beings who are following
We all choose to help or not
Thanks for the hand!
Track Name: Censor Me (alt version - Mike sings)
Censor myself
Censor me
Be like the rest - Try to fit in
Accept the orthodoxy
No veering away
Too scared to take a stand

Censor me
Fit in
Censor me
Words cut

Can't say my thoughts and stand behind them
Part of the pack - Excised my mind
This shit can't last
I'm up to it
Rebuilt - I'm standing!

Gotta break these chains
The chains in my head
Gotta fucking break out
Track Name: *Asterisk* (alt version - Mike sings)
An asterisk after everything you say
Qualified response
Obviously not what you mean
Revers, back pedal, find a way out
Explain it all away
A temporary lapse

You've earned contempt from me
You'll never be believed

So evasive, your stories
Hypocrisy's just the way you live
Following the polls of the moment
Can't get caught saying the wrong thing

There's nothing, There's nothing to you
You'll say anything
It's only blank behind your eyes

Your lies, your charade
There's nothing there
Explain it all away with an asterisk

Respect, Respect you've never earned

Explain it all away with an asterisk
Explain it all away with an asterisk
Track Name: Bioluminescence (alt version - Mike sings both parts)
I'm all lit up
I light my world
Living in a sea of darkness
I gotta stand alone

And you can see right through me
See right through
The light's within me
It's all I know

It's all I know

This world's so full or darkness
And I just - I just want to survive
I'll adapt any way I can
There's no alternative
This world will swallow you whole if you let it
That's just the way it is
No favors granted
And none asked
But my mind's still positive.
Track Name: We Are Not Just Solitary Beings (Jim Pitts version)
Friends help you out when you reach out and ask
Sometimes you know when your limit's passed
We are not just solitary beings who are following
We all choose to help or not
Thanks Jim!
