    The CD includes a folded poster insert with lyrics and a block print by Daniel Watkins (the insert was duplicated, not made individually like the CD case).

lyrics

You ever get the feeling -- you’re trapped in a prison without any walls?
The foundation is crumbling - wonder if it was ever there at all.

I look to the heavens
they’re heavy with clouds.
I open my mouth but I can’t make a sound.

You ever get to thinking -- you’ve been living someone else’s dream all along?
And your stomach is sinking. “Seems like everything I thought I knew has turned out wrong.”

Warning lights flicker inside the machine.
The circuit corroded, the skeleton clean.

And I don’t know if I can know. I need to know. Am I wasting my time?
Is there any way out of the discomfort of living with doubt? No, I don’t think so.

And when the structure collapses
no one else can see the fire and smoke.

They look at you like your crazy, you fight the panic and run.
Catching your breath, “Am I the only one?”

And I don’t know if I can know. I need to know. Am I wasting my time?
Is there any way out of the discomfort of living with doubt? No, I don’t think so.

They look at me like I’m crazy, like I’m the one who’s deceived
They call me a sinner and lazy -- well if that’s what you want to believe
And yes I have questions unanswered and that’s all right with me
I’d rather spend my life in a desert than a palace that I can’t leave
