Man in a tower When you see the man come down Don’t mistake him for a clown Listen up - don’t make a sound He just might say something profound He don’t need a microphone - he’s got a cyberspace home He’s on a mission to fix your condition And he don’t need your permission Now that he - that he’s come down See him steal the witch’s crown Look around all over town, it's going down, the man came down He doesn’t need a microphone - he’s got a cyberspace home Open your ears and open your eyes He says the truth but you want lies Oh no! The man in a tower tripped an algorithm! Now he is in virtual jail! Ha, ha, ha (Ha, ha, ha) When you see the man come down Don’t mistake him for a clown Listen up - don’t make a sound He just might say something profound He don’t need a microphone - he’s got a cyberspace home (that's right!) He’s on a mission to fix your condition And he don’t need your permission What’s that, you don’t like what he said That’s good, he hit a nerve Now it’s your turn to talk But you got nothing to say Oh no! Man in a tower - Man in a tower - He's got the power - He's a man in a tower Man in a tower

Pendulum 03:25
As the pendulum swings left to right - The planet turns around and makes it alright If you can hold on - onto what you know - Facts don’t change while feelings come and go As the sunset becomes the sunrise - Things shouldn’t take - take you by surprise I’m just watching you fall ahead - Living the dream until you end up dead Can’t you see what it does to me - By your side is where I’d rather be I’m getting tired of you making me wait - When you turn around it may be too late You got me swinging back and forth - Stuck in a revolving door Won’t you come on and give me some - Goin’ for a ride on a pendulum As the pendulum swings left to right - The planet turns around and makes it alright If you can hold on - onto what you know - Facts don’t change while feelings come and go As the sunset becomes the sunrise - Things shouldn’t take - take you by surprise I’m just watching you fall ahead - Living the dream until you end up dead Can’t you see what it does to me - By your side is where I’d rather be I’m getting tired of you making me wait - When you turn around it may be too late You got me swinging back and forth - Stuck in a revolving door Won’t you come on and give me some - Goin’ for a ride on a pendulum Pendulum pendulum pendulum pendulum Pendulum pendulum pendulum pendulum As the pendulum swings left to right - The planet turns around and makes it alright If you can hold on - onto what you know - Facts don’t change while feelings come and go As the sunset becomes the sunrise - Things shouldn’t take - take you by surprise I’m just watching you fall ahead - Living the dream until you end up dead Can’t you see what it does to me - By your side is where I’d rather be I’m getting tired of you making me wait - When you turn around it may be too late You got me swinging back and forth - Stuck in a revolving door Won’t you come on and give me some - Goin’ for a ride on a pendulum Pendulum pendulum pendulum pendulum Pendulum pendulum pendulum pendulum

You know I’ve told you time and again That things don’t happen when you go where you’ve been You keep on searching but it can’t be found You try to run but you’re falling down And time is running out - You cannot stop it You’ll miss what its about - Before you know it You know I’ve seen you time and again You always go where you’re supposed to go And if you see something you can’t explain You call it names and the hate will flow And time is running out - You cannot stop it You’ll miss what its about - Before you know it And time is running out - You cannot stop it You’ll miss what its about - Before you know it Have I said enough for it to get through You know the time has come for you to get a clue If you think that words will show the light of day Open your eyes It’s time for you to walk away You know I’ve heard you time and again Talkin’ trash to everyone in town Just when you think you’ve made enough friends Somebody comes along to take you down And time is running out - You cannot stop it You’ll miss what its about - Before you know it And time is running out - You cannot stop it You’ll miss what its about - Before you know it Have I said enough for it to get through You know the time has come for you to get a clue If you think that words will show the light of day Open your eyes It’s time for you to walk away

Deep Down 03:24
Deep down You’re free to choose, but not free to say Type what you want, but you’ll have to pay Think your own thoughts, but just for today We’ll shut you down, like you deserve anyway So deep we cannot see - You cannot disagree You gotta think like me - That’s all that you can be now Gotta keep it deep down - Better push it deep down Your ship is sinking deep down - So get your thinking deep down The way to survive, is to devolve This is a problem you can never solve Among your fellow spuds you had better hide We gotta keep those fake divisions wide So deep we cannot see - You cannot disagree You gotta think like me - That’s all that you can be now Gotta keep it deep down - Better push it deep down Your ship is sinking deep down - So get your thinking deep down Gotta keep it deep down - Better push it deep down Your ship is sinking deep down - So get your thinking deep down Deep-deep-deep-deep Down-down … Down-down-down Gotta keep it deep down - Better push it deep down Your ship is sinking deep down - So get your thinking deep down Gotta keep it deep down - Better push it deep down Your ship is sinking deep down - So get your thinking deep down Gotta keep it deep down - Better push it deep down Your ship is sinking deep down - So get your thinking deep down Gotta keep it deep down - Better push it deep down Your ship is sinking deep down - So get your thinking deep down Deep down

Tune U Out 03:55
Rebel. That’s how you see yourself. Think you’re oh so woke. Sucker. You turned me inside out. Making me go broke. Liar. You even fooled yourself. Hey, you’re a self-made man. When you fall in line with the big, big world, you’d better get yourself another plan. Plan! Don’t say I gotta think like you. Don’t tell me what to do, ‘cause you know I’m gonna tune u out. You know I’ve had it up to here. Don’t care if you’re sincere. You better bet I’m gonna tune u out. Hey there. Let me introduce you to a spoonful of plain old facts. Stranger to everything you know. The prophets are all hacks. Tune out. It’s what you’ve got to do. Don’t get played like a fool. Reporting the news, now just being used like another useless tool. Tool! Don’t say I gotta think like you. Don’t tell me what to do, ‘cause you know I’m gonna tune u out. You know I’ve had it up to here. Don’t care if you’re sincere. You better bet I’m gonna tune u out. I’m tired of the things you say. Don’t try to make me stay. I don’t care how much you scream and shout. All the good-time memories are gone. You know before too long, everybody’s gonna tune u out. Don’t say I gotta think like you. Don’t tell me what to do, ‘cause you know I’m gonna tune u out. You know I’ve had it up to here. Don’t care if you’re sincere. You better bet I’m gonna tune u out. I’m tired of the things you say. Don’t try to make me stay. I don’t care how much you scream and shout. All the good-time memories are gone. You know before too long, everybody’s gonna tune u out. Don’t say I gotta think like you. Don’t tell me what to do, ‘cause you know I’m gonna tune u out. You know I’ve had it up to here. Don’t care if you’re sincere. You better bet I’m gonna tune u out. I’m tired of the things you say. Don’t try to make me stay. I don’t care how much you scream and shout. All the good-time memories are gone. You know before too long, everybody’s gonna tune u out.

Things come at five minutes to five It’s all that I can do to just stay alive Toiling away just makes you look like a fool There are no lifeguards in this gene pool Plans change at five minutes to five Better escape before the world takes a dive If you wait until the schedule is done There won’t be any time to take out for fun I don't know how I will survive Way down the road I'm gonna drive Can't take another minute more I'm feeling rotten to the core Explosions happen at five minutes to five The bombs go off and really mess up the hive If I’ve told you once I’ve told you before The time is running out to walk out the door Big things come at five minutes to five It’s all that I can do to just stay alive Toiling away just makes you look like a fool There are no lifeguards in this gene pool I don't know how I will survive Way down the road I'm gonna drive Can't take another minute more I'm feeling rotten to the core I don't know how I will survive Way down the road I'm gonna drive Can't take another minute more I'm feeling rotten to the core Plans change at five minutes to five Better escape before the world takes a dive If you wait until the schedule is done There won’t be any time to take out for fun Explosions happen at five minutes to five The bombs go off and really mess up the hive If I’ve told you once I’ve told you before The time is running out to walk out the door I don't know how I will survive Way down the road I'm gonna drive Can't take another minute more I'm feeling rotten to the core I don't know how I will survive Way down the road I'm gonna drive Can't take another minute more I'm feeling rotten to the core
