    All nestled in its digipack, hugged by glossy cardboard, ready for the cold nights with its snappy shrinkwrap cardigan. This isn't a CD, it's a fashion statement.

lyrics

I've long suspected that freedom's a rascal
This only contributes to lies
Insinuations of beta emasculate
(Alpha's just a term for you ordinary gents)
I'll be a vision of living in sin
If you tell it fits into the hive
This living liquid is livid with estrogen
Nothing ever seems to make sense when viewed in rhyme

I've had requests to take a hard line
Assuage the guilt and keep it in mind
A solid dollar in the barrel is all mine
Bobbing for apples is a sexless grind

For all my pedigree, I'm just a peony!

I'm so unhappy that when I'm alone
I feel okay
Comfort comes in waves
I filled my quotient but the quota's changed
And I'm amazed
Daunted, but unfazed

Been alright, on occasion been excellent
This only contributes to lies
Been a spoke in the wheel of humanity
Every time a part of me dies
You taste a drop off the sweat of my brow and you
Tell me it's too sweet to be dry
I'd rather face the wrath of all those real men
I'd rather starve than earn a tough hunk of bread

I've been incensed to play the sad mime
Pushing on boxes while the Great Chain drives
Searching for answers is a waste of my time
Suggesting answers is a waste of your wine

One more dance in time!

I'm so unhappy that when I'm alone
I feel okay
Comfort comes in waves
I filled my quotient but the quota's changed
And I'm amazed
Daunted, but unfazed

Shake the ground and burn the building
We'll smoke him out!
Wave the stack, strike the dollar sign
He's so powerless!
Make believe is all so selfish at prime + 9.0
Nobody to pay the water bill
Nobody to toe the line ...
