the Realization station: this is how we demonstrate difference survives don't want to talk it over now don't want to talk it over now projects in basements codes in songs that no one hears still something is sown with microphones who? how? this is my penance i'm not the same name from beginning to end through different demonstrations and though you're loath to let us challenge your masterpiece it's crumbling all the same as time demonstrates to you who? how? i'm fearful and joyful joyful? a dim Light: 1, 2, 3!

~tick-tock~ The LOUDEST: if you're feeling joyful ... HA! then why'd <glitch state=”contained”>you make your way to my door?</glitch> it's not like i just dialed you up but enough small talk we got us a recant and there's just one thing left to say <glitch state=”contained”/>hello you'll feel better hello you'll feel <glitch state=”contained”>better</glitch> we'll help you feel better we'll help you feel BETTER ~a dim glimpse~ The Soapettes: (party chatter) a dim Light: all bets are off sing “all bets are off” now ~faster now~ the Realization station: i don't want to yell and i don't want to soldier since your face already tells me what i'm doing is wrong but i can't write a song to report the actual crime when i've already been blessedly marked i've sealed it with a kiss i don't want your healing touch it means put away i can't stand your helping hand The LOUDEST: bite down! see how feeling joyful is cutting the same time-line? we've got a creed for all of your concerns “just do your best” is one of our best oh how you love that line The LOUDEST + the Realization station: hello you'll feel hello you'll feel The LOUDEST: better ... BETTER The LOUDEST + the Realization station: hello you'll feel better hello you'll feel <glitch state=”unknown”>better</glitch> we'll help you feel better the Realization station: we'll help you feel BETTER i don't want your healing touch it means put away i can't stand your helping hand lessens every wrong i don't want your healing touch i can't stand your helping hand

the Realization station + a dim Light: bothered enough by these knots perched in this nest, tangles my home fly one day, perhaps unravel i can finally stretch myself out a dim Light: but history and biology are telling me these troubles ain't my own and every time someone shines “the light” it hides a dim one that might be my own ... or at least some warmth the Realization station + a dim Light: and peace teach me simple the Realization station: this i pray: a dim Light: this i might pray: the Realization station + a dim Light: move me backwards every day give me no more than my daily bread flour + water wheat + river soil + rain earth + sky a dim Light: all your prayers are telling me to just believe these troubles ain't my own but every time someone finds “the truth” it hides a dim one that might be their own ... at least from what i've the Realization station + a dim Light: gleaned a dim Light: that all bets are off now it's all a joke, but that you knew sing “all bets are off” now and it's all a joke, just laugh this time so “ha ha” the Realization station + a dim Light: ha ha a dim Light: when someone dares to cross the line they get the joke but find themselves alone and every time i find “the light” it hides a dim one that might be my own the Realization station + a dim Light: but does it matter? we've been beaten to the punch cause they've wrapped it up, it's all sugar ... white ... stale and we've chewed it up, it's already poisoned a dim Light: so now we're fucked up the Realization station + a dim Light: so what, we're fucked up? so now we're fucked up! a dim Light: surprised we're fucked up?!

The LOUDEST + the Realization station: oh yeah? a dim Light: oh no! ... but how? The LOUDEST + the Realization station: oh yeah?! ~answers vs. questions~ a dim Light: think you found the answers now bring on the questions! the Soapettes: who loves everyone? who? who loves everyone? who?! a dim Light: there are so many ways to your “light”, to your “truth” but i slip on the rays trying to keep score in my head and how can we leave things as they are? and how can you say that you see with closed eyes? the Realization station: it's not so much the truth as letting go it's alright if you can't go back on your fight but it doesn't matter now if she could or if he can't they're metas to the facts only wanting to see beyond that is your mat the Soapettes: who loves everyone? who?! a dim Light: i may be stuck in my head and wanna play the safe part but with so much suffering there are so many fires to spark unless i think just like you that it's all from our past but why should i be blind to the problems of this time? ~fearful vs. joyful~ the Realization station: forget about the past and what you know “all bets are off” and “it's all a joke” but can you stop .... the Realization station + a dim Light: i'm fearful and joyful the Realization station: ॐ
7.
a dim Light: but i'm so tired of swimming upstream with no light or straight line to a truth that it's a cliff: one sees it all so clearly but take another ... step ~credo~ the Realization station: happy yet? the Realization station + a dim Light: so happy yet? The LOUDEST: but you know where you end pretty near to where that “joyful” begins but now you've got your scar and credo so “let go” now just be sure to not let everyone down maybe they can keep your credo? the sparks fade out in the street you're talking metas, they've got nothing to eat maybe they'll just eat your credo? and since you're keeping score this ain't the first time that you came to my door so maybe we'll just keep your seat no matter how refined the speech know that when you're hungry you're gonna eat that credo! ~but how? and who?~ the Realization station + a dim Light: so happy yet? they've wrapped it up the Realization station: and you've chewed it up a dim Light: and i've chewed it up the Realization station + a dim Light: it's already poisoned so now we're fucked up so what we're fucked up? surprise we're fucked up ... a dim Light: bad! the Realization station + a dim Light: how? who? so happy yet? the Realization station: happy yet? who? how?
