    An 18-track journey through Bricklayers Foundation's consciousness. Join us as we explore the artificiality of time itself, something that continually fluctuates and goes back and forth, never settling to stand still. Computers are merely trying to tie us down, but time doesn't believe in such things.

The baddest one will get the fun
The baddest one will scrape the sun
but you could never hope to be the worst

The dangling line has bobbed and dashed
Push up in the under grass
Poking out the eyeballs into view

Gaping at the sight lines in the snow
Frigid women tremble in their clothes
But you will never wonder what you did
You'll find that perfect line that gets you back to be

The baddest one, you stuck your blue
finger in that hole and she was
flushed and gave a squeal so you could know

that you gave her an apostrophe
in the leaky basement of your dreams
It's opened up and you know where to go

Oh, you're so bad, you're so bad
and it makes me sad when you do that
Oh, you runaway, you've gone astray
A lie in every piece you say

Biking up the truck route in the cold
Frigid women tremble in their clothes
but you will never wonder what you did
It gets so that you won't remember
what you could not
forget it
forget it
