New Jerk 02:54
Lost words become promising. Far out holding on to dreams. While inside burning down a factory. Pleasant thoughts become lonely. Tied down drifting out to sea. To see. (Surround all these ghosts) Ghostly faces are surrounding. (Translate the abyss) While the abyss is overwhelming. (Drifting in my sea) Faith in what cannot be seen. (Decode all these ghosts) Ghostly faces are surrounding me. Lost words become promising. Tied down drifting out to sea. Burning down factories! Some are so excited the dreams are over, the dreams are flowing again. Swim the coast, wait for ghosts, dreams that burn ahead.
Rivet (Live) 02:07
Took too far by the hands by the controller. We don’t need this. Without correction value has no meaning. In a world of hate revise the plans. Destruction is the word that describes the incision.
Thirty-one pieces of tape to strap my mind. Form it. Hold it. The worst things that can happen time will solve. The worst thing you can say to me is nothing at all. White walls I stare upon. Waiting for the bottle to float back. No message inside only sand. Water that has casted in stone. Ironclad.


This three song download is included with the purchase of the ‘Gauge : 153’ DVD; a film by Matt Golin. Of the 16 songs played at the March 6, 2010 reunion show, "Rivet" and "Ironclad" are the only two songs
that do not appear on the DVD (either in the full feature or in the bonus footage). This version of “New Jerk” is also included with the ‘Mints’ 7" download and plays during the film’s end credits.
