-01 in itunes we trust! syke! (vampirates)

itunes to categorically pretext what something sounds like before you even hear it. facebook to let the public decide whether you should like it or not like it. art should never be formed to project superficial bullshit on you. give yourself a chance to enjoy your own experience. clear your head and listen to what it makes you feel inside. nobody can stop you so make the moment yours. who decided music should have an image anyway? passion over money and fame and image any day. close your eyes and listen and hear the image fade away. always complaining. act like a baby. insinuating. procrastinating. not contemplating. feebly blaming. every day by day. not gonna show your fall. nothing to stop you at all. lookout here comes last call. always complaining. act like a baby. insinuating. procrastinating. not contemplating. feebly blaming. constantly straining. completely draining. interest is lost. music is an aural art form, your ears can’t see one’s clothes. fashion, you don’t need to abide by dress codes to go to shows. musical styles were never intended to imply a visual appearance. give yourself a chance to enjoy your own experience. clear your head and listen to what it makes you feel inside. nobody can stop you so make the moment yours. who decided music should have an image anyway? passion over money and fame and image any day. close your eyes and listen and hear the image fade away.

-02 destination now (vampirates covering third seven)

and here i'm locked in indecision. in this brittle cold dark alley way. always hidden from those who cant afford. the color of the flames. disguised blue devil. in white eyed reason. to trust invoking strange mistakes. encouraging such challenges. the unknowing and undoing. causes flat wound awakenings. like sinner men or a eucharist in a church. grit your teeth and a pause on your tongue. tasted memory. the taste of redemption. adjustable sufferable talents. layered here so as not to be disturbed. disguised blue devil. in white eyed reason. to trust invoking strange mistakes. encouraging such challenges.

-03 post genre (vampirates - thirdseven)

we have much more in common than i think you realize. i want to show you something. but you have to close your eyes. i need you to remember the way it used to be. before we were so jaded and unable to feel. do not let them open until it tells you so. a spirit? a feeling? or love? i do not know. but promise to leave it untamed. description will deceive. remember our youthful perceptions?. unhindered unbiased and clean. end this endless division. to sort and sort. please try not to label. language will fall short. it's either good or bad and that is completely relative. these labels mean nothing at all. either loved or hated and that is completely fine. do not rely on words to make this decision. do not let them open until it tells you so. a spirit? a feeling? or love?. i do not know. but promise to leave it untamed. description will deceive. remember our youthful perceptions? unhindered unbiased and clean. end this endless division. to sort and sort. please try not to label. language will fall short. we do not need to classify. every single little thing. instead let them pass through us. see what they will bring.

-04 sea sharp (third seven covering vampirates)

sometimes it's hard to see the forest from the trees see things for what they are. demons in your brain but you can ease the pain with whatever makes the feeling seem so far... away. i'm no perfect man. i drink my problems by the glass down at the bar. it's your life. it's my advice. don't ever let a pink elephant crash your car. confusion illusion delusion straight losing touch forgot what it's all about. world's got nothing left to give. incentives to live are all running out. you can kill yourself. you can't kill the pain. you'll just give it back to those who care the most instead. think about that the next time you let a pink elephant hold a gun to your fucking head.

-05 the blood song (ingrid bomann-larsen - third seven)

i was onboard on a ship. a ship with gold. and i took and i spent and never payed back. threw the captain in the sea and watched as he sank. you know that i don't lie. they're gonna hang me from my neck. you know that i don't lie. they're gonna hang me from my neck. when we returned to land. our land it was gone. there's nothing left but this ship. the ship and the sun. so i gathered all my companions. and i shot them with my gun. ya i gathered all my companions. and i left them with the sun. gotta learn to fly. how hard can this be? just look at the sky. the birds they look so free. i'll drown one for you. if you drown one for me. i'll drown one for you. if you drown one for me.
