PISSING IN THE BLOODSTREAM
I’ve been swimming with the fishes in the water on my brain
And I’ve been pissing in the blood stream that the doctors want to drain
Both my legs feel pretty dead like a corpse within a grave
But they wont move until the voodoo tells them how to behave
It’s time to hold a séance, and maybe after our romance
We could summon spirits, from days of old, all the hypocrites! 
Somewhere in the darkness is the light switch I can’t find
When I’m low on inspiration, well I might as well be blind
I can’t see or use my eyes to write these words I need to write
And I can’t see the world outside, so I guess I’ve lost my sight! 
It’s time to hold a séance, and maybe after our romance
We could summon spirits, from days of old, all those hypocrites! 
Pissing in the bloodstream

E=MC2
Sometimes rain tears me apart, sometimes it even drowns my heart
So when I’m sad and it gets dark, I merge with the shadows
Sometimes I feel real strange, and every day it feels the same
When I’m going crazy on the stage, it’s like I’m in the gallows
E always equals MC squared, but dammit I got F
Its movie sequel like I care, I’m too busy having sex
But only when I’m dreaming, only when I'm dreaming of you
Yeah I may be paranoid, to think that people steal my toys
Down every road I walk there's noise, it’s like I’m being followed! 
When my head is heavy I can’t think, so every day and night I drink
I need it more than oxygen, inside I feel hollow
E always equals MC squared, but dammit I got F
Its movie sequel like I care, I’m too busy having sex
But only when I’m dreaming, only when I'm dreaming of you

THE WORLD OUTSIDE
Whatever happened to our dreams, when did we become machines?
Why do I laugh as people cry, is it my fault or my design?
I drag my heavy head across the bottom of the sea
I’m sinking ships with my grief, as I’m searching for the key
Whatever happened to our dreams, maybe it was the caffeine
I can’t sleep and I wonder why my brain’s in pain every night
I drag my heavy head across the bottom of the sea
I’m sinking ships with my grief, as I’m searching for the key
The world outside, I despise...
I want to open doors...

THE KNIFE
I wanna run away, tonight when everyone’s asleep
And skip town cos my world is full of broken dreams
But they won’t let me leave, they won’t let me leave
I don’t wanna be your bitch, I’m sick of taking all your shit
I don’t wanna be your bitch, you stab me in the back and twist
The knife comes out when I turn around
You stab me in the back and laugh
The blade cuts deep, the blade draws blood
You stand oh you’re laughing at me
But they won’t let me leave, they won’t let me leave
I don’t wanna be your bitch, I’m sick of taking all your shit
I don’t wanna be your bitch, you stab me in the back and twist 

HEADS TWISTING TAILS
Nothing’s right, this isn’t how it’s supposed to happen
I caught you in the act, creating dark matter
Turning light into evil, as night becomes day
Turning facts on their head, making coffins as you pray
Why don’t you defend yourself, is it because you know that you’re wrong?
I’ve spent my life waiting for help, but nobody listened so I helped myself
Why don’t you just end it now…
Nothing’s right, this isn’t how it’s supposed to happen
I wish that you’d relax instead of trying to splatter our heads against the wall
Turning heads and twisting tails until you’re caught
Why don’t you defend yourself, is it because you know that you’re wrong?
I’ve spent my life waiting for help, but nobody listened so I helped myself
Why don’t you just end it now… 
Just end it now...

FADE TO SATELLITES
I look like someone you don’t know, a sorry bag of skin and bones
Now I’m falling backwards through my mouth
And no one wants to help, no one wants to help
Like the enemy that’s born within
I am crazy-eyed and touched by sin
Now my eyes have teeth, they’re eating dreams
Yes, they’re eating dreams
But no one else believes me
I’m banging my head against the wall, I’ve been doing this for days
The world treats me like a fool, repeat to fade
As my thoughts are traced by satellites
As my thoughts are traced by satellites 

WALKING BETWEEN THE RAINDROPS
I cannot remember, anything at all
I cannot remember, was I pushed or did I fall
On the beach or in the sea, starring at the sun?
Or was I on the rooftop looking down, at everything that I’ve done
But I cannot remember...
Amnesia, who are you, where am I?
Am I walking between the raindrops?
Could life be better if I forgot myself?
Down on my knees asking God for help
I cannot remember, all the fights we had
I cannot remember, feeling sad
I was in the road walking home, but then I changed my mind
In the light I had seen Christ, and so I took him for a ride
But I cannot remember...

COLLAPSE
My hungry lungs can’t inhale the precious air I need
The world feels strange and I am made to fall upon my knees
My body shakes and begins to ache, but I can’t cry for help
All my words are never heard, they foam inside my mouth
Collapse, when I’m happy
Collapse, when I’m sad
Collapse, when I’m happy
Collapse!
Everytime I wake my head is really sore
And everytime I hit the deck it hurts a little more
They took me to the hospital hoping that they could find
The reason why I blackout when I am really high on life
They plugged me into machines to monitor my brain
And sucked my blood through a syringe just to have a little taste
Everytime I awake my head is really sore
And everytime I hit the deck it hurts a little more
I Collapse, I Collapse, I Collapse
When I am happy and when I am sad

THE VOICE INSIDE
I was walking by the riverside early one summer day
I was thinking about the real good times and drinking lemonade
We laughed, we talked, we danced, we played, but then you went away
Was it me or was it you, oh please baby I can change
Where did you go?
You left me all alone
Why did you go?
I’m sad and all alone
I held your hand, I held your soul, until I went insane
You poured the booze straight down my throat, and I drowned in what remained
My broken heart has left me scarred, I’m bitter at my life
My panic spreads upon my face, just like butter from a knife
Where did you go?
You left me all alone
Why did you go?
I’m sad and all alone
I followed you home from school and later home from work
I called you up, but had no luck because your friends think I’m a jerk
But like a product of Chernobyl, feelings can mutate
The voice inside wants to cry to transform this love into hate

WEAK
I need some something to calm me down my nerves are frayed
As the world inside my head spins round and round for days
I’m weak, I can’t speak, I can’t ask for help
I’m weak, knocked off my feet
Life has knocked me down
I need someone to take my hand and help me understand
Why my home is reduced to sand by people I don’t know
I’m weak, I can’t speak, I can’t ask for help
I’m weak, knocked off my feet
Life has knocked me down
My eyes turn red and I look dead
I’m weak, I can’t speak, I can’t ask for help
I’m weak, knocked off my feet
Life has knocked me down

BREATHE THE DAY IN
When the bells begin to chime follow God into the sunshine
The season's changed just in time, so take your heart out of your mouth
When the bells begin to ring follow those who like to sing
I need you, oh, we all do…
Don’t sit there in your chair
Get up and breathe the day in
Don’t sit inside and lose your mind
Get up and breathe the day in

The World Outside was Jim and Sean's first album after Shock of the Cold (2004-2008).

Dave Biliti from Shock of the Cold worked with Sean on the album and Dave recorded all drum tracks. The album was recorded with very few instruments and overdubs. The album’s intent was to sound as much as a rock album as possible.
