Ostrich Theory Lyrics

Never Question

you never question why
you’ve got it so good
you never questioned why
’cause it’s understood
you never questioned why
you just complain
you never question why
you just played the game

it’s easy now to forget
when you’re happy
your belly’s full
but the food is shit

you never question why
your name was on the list
you never questioned why
but you somehow got the gist
you never questioned why
it all seems the same
you never question why
when you feel no pain

it’s easy now to forget
when you’re happy
robbing Paul for your debt
to Peter
it’s easy now to forget
when he’s gone

you never question why
they said it was free
you never questioned why
now you pay the fee

Pilgrim

suddenly a light blinds your eyes
but now you see
watch the flame as it dances
like it’s just for me

but it’s not what you came for
it’s what you need
you’re holding a flame and you know
this makes you feel so alive

honesty so perfect
how it binds you to me
you can change the subject
but it won’t change a thing

cuz it’s not what you came for
it’s what you need
there’s no one to blame no
just get the ring and go

crossing the line
taking the time
I’ll pay for this
but they say it’s wrong and it shows
no playing around
no playing it out
it’s dangerous
so kill it before it grows

Into The Wind

I leaned into the wind
she said “get in”
then down came the rain
in the space between down came the pain
then she opened her eyes
what have I done

I knew
there was never shelter there with you

I flew
like the wind I’m just passing through
and so you’ll fade away
no shelter today

it’s you
reminding me of how I lost my youth
come to
shake the leaves and try and find the fruit

but it’s gone away
what have we done

I knew
there was never shelter there with you
I do
wish that I could hide inside of you
but things will never change
till we face the rain
and when this rage goes
what have I done

What I Want

why don’t we ever get what we deserve
just ask the rich men who inherit the earth
or ask an indian about manifest destiny
or ask this bottle how the fuck it gets the best of me

can somebody tell me why we can’t get along
maybe we could just sing
the corus to this song
if history has taught me anything
I have to fuck you
fuck you
to get what I want

the U.S.A. is under Satan’s authority
that is of course if you believe in that sort of thing
you want a slice of the American pie
I don’t have a slice and I’m wondering why

CHORUS

law and order is a tool to stall the revolution
peace is just a temporary solution
and they don’t understand a word I’ve said
because they’re members of the walking dead

Restless

no you’re not alone
so far away from home
with all this restlessness
you caress your emptiness
you’re not the only one

no you can’t hurt me
I’ll just hurt myself
now this love is empty
and your being used
try to justify this hate
when your afraid
now there’s no rest here
in the bed you made

what god would watch this mess
I think he needs some company
there was a time you were wide
open to me

CHORUS

stay over there
I’ll love you from afar
stay away
till you you can live with who you are
alone
try to justify this hate
when your afraid
now there’s no rest here
in the bed you made

Tool

maybe I’m not a very good tool
or maybe you just don’t know how to use me
maybe I’m in the wrong machiene
or maybe I’m waking up from the dream

with everything
between us
now we know
it’s all right
to be alone

I’m a little fucked up
there’s something wrong with me
is that the case
or did I have to get

outside to see

CHORUS

and now that I need you all
so desperately
I’ll figure it all out
I’ll figure it all out
it’s so human of me
to take controll
to take a soul

Digital

with a heart like a battlefield
and a mind like a race track
64 bit technology
but the words you can’t take back

digital sunshine lights your eyes
electronic sin tucks you in at night

our parents in ignorance
the newest ways for the oldest sins
slow motion suicide
what’s it take, open up your eyes

digital sunshine lights your eyes
electronic sin tucks you in at night
numbers in and out that rule the world
serving many, serving none

regress
prgogress

with a heart like a battlefield
and a mind like a race track
there’s only so much you can feel
when your brain is break back

digital sunshine lights your eyes
electronic sin tucks you in at night
numbers in and out that rule the world
serving many, serving none

regress
prgogress
reset
process

Spy Party

gonna kill your soul and leave your body behind
get your head out of your ass if you don’t mind
it’s all because you look the other way
Alex get a knife and stab this guy
I’ll pay you cash and there’s no time for reasons why
he’s coming for can’t you see
he’s coming closer to killing me

I’m going to die because you’re all blind
he’s going to kill my soul and leave my body behind
Alex get a knife and stab this guy
I’ll pay you cash and there’s no time for reasons why
he’s coming for can’t you see
he’s coming closer to killing me

now they will never find me
deep inside
what some would say are
enemy lines
where black and white have turned to grey
no they won’t find me

32nd Floor

on the 32nd Floor
he couldn’t take anymore
there was life out there
somewhere down below
he found himself so high
it made him wonder why
he knew
one day he would fly
if only he’d try

he never broke the rules
always followed fools
they never knew the monster that would grow
one day he met a girl
and she would change his world
show him things, things he never knew
yeah he never knew

it made him say
hey, we’re going to do it my way
a push of the button and we all get paid
don’t be afraid
don’t be afraid
what goes up comes down

CHORUS
