The Path 03:10
Walk along the path If you stray there's no looking back Take her back Take the other by the hand, or you may Make a break for it and run the other way It's okay You're really, really lost but it's okay Maybe you'll stay among the trees or find something new Is there someone there who's looking for you? How did you lose your way? The simplest path is the easiest one to ignore Take heed of what they say! Straight and true Safety is easy Your grandma is waiting for you Take another breath Take a breather, get a little rest Lay in a Field of flowers so immense that you get Dizzy when you see you're not done yet And every turn you take Seems to lead you back by mistake Misty Lake Clouding up your mind until you can see The size of his incisors Bigger than me When is it going to end? I thought I saw something shiny You'd better investigate But not til you find a friend And maybe he'll make for good company Back at your Grandma's house Where are you going to now? Now that you've thrown yourself willingly off of the path Hanging your head in shame Shame on you, making us worry! Your grandma's still waiting for you

Not a dream, but a memory, memory And it makes me sick In my head, many enemies, enemies But I catch on quick Snicker-snack, I'll collect your teeth Dollface ruin, have some tea Trapped in a past that I can't forget But you can't help me now I've got to find my own way out Teetering is my sanity, sanity On the thinnest wire Now this train's going off the rails, off the rails And into the fire And from the ashes I will rise Hundreds of little butterflies Needles and leeches and pills oh my But they can't help me now I've got to find my own way out I spy a leash for a brand new pet I will not be your marionette Just when you think that it’s too late I can devise my own escape Wearing the skin of a soul who cares I can detect what’s under there Keep piling on all your thoughts and prayers But they can't help me now I've got to find my own way out I've got to find my own way out I've got to find my own way out Who can I trust Where is my home What is the truth What have I done Who can I trust Where is my home What is the truth What have I done Who can I trust Where is my home What is the truth What have I done Who can I trust Where is my home What is the truth What have I done

I reached up for the surface I got dashed up on the rocks And I felt something new was starting But I didn't know quite what I left a life behind me that was everything and nothing So I braced myself against whatever nightmare might be coming This newfound freedom's painful It's like knives in every step And I was scared of what just happened and what Hadn't happened yet Thank my lucky stars my friends were there We washed up on the shore Together, joking about the swimmers' ear We won't get anymore I knew I'd find you here I hoped I'd find you I knew I'd find you here I hoped I'd find you I knew I'd find you here I hoped I'd find you This world is so new and I almost feel human She's got legs She's got legs This world above the one beneath Is bright and loud and full of people Step one is to take one step Despite my many doubts I can do this I can do this Oh my god, what am I doing? For the first time on my own I find I'm breathing in and out I knew I'd find you here I hoped I'd find you I knew I'd find you here I hoped I'd find you I knew I'd find you here I hoped I'd find you This world is so new and I almost feel human She's got legs She's got legs She's got legs She's got legs

Heart shaped apple tarts Four and twenty pence We're all mad here And it all makes perfect sense Cock shaped macarons Plated for the guests We're all mad here And it all makes perfect sense Heart shaped apple tarts Four and twenty pence We're all mad here And it all makes perfect sense Cock shaped macarons Plated for the guests We're all mad here And it all makes perfect sense It's not my hometown, But I'm homesick all the same 'Cause every time I leave It's like I'm making a mistake The fog rolls in Like old caterpillar's smoke I'm not sure if anyone misses me But I'm sure that this is my home Through the looking glass A golden gate I'm on the wrong side of it now But my heart remained All unbirthdays are A cause to celebrate And when I come back, I’m bringing all the cake, singing Heart shaped apple tarts Four and twenty pence We're all mad here And it all makes perfect sense Cock shaped macarons Plated for the guests We're all mad here And it all makes perfect sense Last night I dreamt about Frank Chu He was holding a sign 9 billion galaxies 12 trillion timelines Which one is the one where I finally End up in a life Where I'm blocks from Dolores Park In the city I call mine? Last night I dreamt about Frank Chu He was holding a sign 9 billion galaxies 12 trillion timelines Which one is the one where I finally End up in a life Where I'm blocks from Dolores Park In the city I call mine? And it all makes perfect sense And it all makes perfect sense

I remember when I was younger Me and my sister, we used to speedrun Super Mario World and Aladdin All the moves ingrained in our fingers Sitting with a bowl of chips, And an issue of Nintendo Power Now 20-something odd years later We still beat it in half an hour It comes back to me Like Muscle memory I can feel it Coming back to me Muscle memory Now that I’m older, I find I’ve lost The taste for things that I just say I’m over Like emotions, or attachments, Or like anything I can’t control Of course that means that you would come And suddenly I can remember feeling Hold down Y and then you run I still got it, yeah, it’s in my fingers It comes back to me Like Muscle memory I can feel it Coming back to me Muscle memory It comes back to me Like Muscle memory I can feel it Coming back to me Muscle memory It comes back to me Like Muscle memory I can feel it Coming back to me Muscle memory It comes back to me Muscle memory I can feel it Coming back to me Muscle memory

Martha Wayne 04:30
We got a hotel room We got reservations, table for two The city glitters with cash and litter and dust Everybody wanna have their dinner with us We’re strong ‘cause we’re stable We keep our hand On the wheel And bring it all to the table If there is work to be done We are willing and able To pick it up, til it’s gone We take care of our people It’ll be you and me, oh We are gonna change the world Even if we lose it all one day We will make the best of what we got You'll be Thomas, I'll be Martha Wayne We are gonna own this town Then we're gonna watch it fall away Everything they see, a gift we built You'll be Thomas, I'll be Martha Wayne I tell myself I got things to do But still I’m sitting here talking to you I wouldn’t miss this conversation for the world That stare got me clutchin my pearls Now we’re strong cuz we’re stable We keep our hand On the wheel And bring it all to the table If there is work to be done We are willing and able To pick it up, til it’s gone We take care of our people It’ll be you and me, oh We are gonna change the world Even if we lose it all one day We will make the best of what we got You'll be Thomas, I'll be Martha Wayne We are gonna own this town Then we're gonna watch it fall away Everything they see, a gift we built You'll be Thomas, I'll be Martha Wayne We are gonna change the world Even if we lose it all one day We will make the best of what we got You'll be Thomas, I'll be Martha Wayne We are gonna own this town Then we're gonna watch it fall away Everything they see, a gift we built You'll be Thomas, I'll be Martha Wayne May they remember the love we left behind May the shape of the future be our design May everything that we’ve worked for be not in vain And may you keep me, your very own Martha Wayne
