Track Name: Artificial Reality
What a pleasure it is to have a meeting with you
Among the unequivocal few
Everybody needs you to quantify
Your word is the last, we know who teaches the class
You cite a quotation, but nobody believes you
Everybody needs you to classify

But how do you know what it is
When it comes so convincingly dressed to the 9's?
It's got a twinkling eye on the goal with a will to survive
It won't save you

Artificial Reality
Grace the world with your clarity
Persuade the world with your dignity

Competition is high when there's a limited supply
You mastered the game, but you're a link in the chain
and you might break a circuit and lose your connection
A collared imperfection

Waxing your words to be right
With a vengeance that beats like a drum in your mind
You say "It's gotta be black, or it's white!"
You're conditioned to fly. You're superior.

Artificial Reality
Grace the world with your clarity
Persuade the world with your dignity

Take my hand, together we'll brave new land
Guide my dusty sails - oceans away!
Step on board, we're headed North to the sun
Setting course for your future

Artificial Reality
Grace the world with your rarity
Persuade the world with fatality
Grace the world with your dignity
Persuade the world with duality
Track Name: The Way That it Isn't
Could've been the perfect day
A sunny afternoon cliche
but you didn't wanna talk it over
The weather got a little colder

Soakin' up the mellow mood
Suddenly I'm all confused
It's a little misunderstanding
but explanations get so demanding again my friend

If that's just the way that it is, I want the way that it isn't

Somethin's comin' over you
The conversation's overdue
but you didn't wanna say you were sorry
Now there's a chance that they might never see you again my friend

If that's just the way that it is, I want the way that it isn't

That's not the way that I want it
That's not the way that I like it
That's not the way that I'd like it to be
Fuck the rainbow, fuck the bluebird
