Obtuse Angle 02:40
If I had to say There is no way that I Could speak my piece and still Come away unscathed Even though you try to separate your shit from food The stars they chart but I resist the pulling of the moons My chest's a drum and I can feel the blood behind my eyes But I guess I'm doing fine I guess I'm doing fine Yea, I'm not the only one That is taken 'round the sun If I had to say There is no way that I could Bite by tongue and not have poison eat away Even though you try to separate your shit from food The stars they chart but I resist the pulling of the moons My chest's a drum and I can feel the blood behind my eyes But I guess I'm doing fine I guess I'm doing fine Yea, I'm not the only one That is taken 'round the sun

Cave 03:04
Look at the writing on the wall Find meaning in nothing at all Free from the movement of our mouths Bask in the power of the now Of the now Lost in the desert but there's plenty of rain Strayed from the road, been out here for days I find a place in which to shelter myself Sleep to the hum, drink from the well Filled up with light I shine myself on the world Golden sun-ray, milky white pearl Until I need to go back into the earth Blinking my eyes, I'm born in the dirt
3.
Fake Wand 01:49
I felt a stirring in my brain Bought a ticket, took the train When I stopped the movement stayed Magic eyes, a puzzling state Fake wand, fake life Make time for strife Grip my arm white Hold on for life Come on ride the train, it's fine Could careen a well placed dime Sickened by the pantomime Life goes better with a lime Fake wand, fake life Make time for strife Grip my arm white Hold on for life

Easter 03:34
Obliged to forget and to never look back But time paralyzes the form Shadows growing tall, it's unclear Whence they cast, but they dance Upon your bedroom walls They all fall, but will you be around And do they make a sound when we're Lost in the pack and we're running away But the past is on our backs We live in a fantasy land Wait for the knight to save the day In the shade of a dark mountain face Draggin' down the days, 'til we burn away And where there's smoke, yea you know There's hope that we can keep Each other safe until we Find a resting place Easter egging Patchwork spinning Mossy laying Tempest brewing
5.
Great Divide 02:32
Standing at the great divide Missing guide when the boat arrives The shore receding from your sight Damp hair and the soiled sheets Layers down comes a rattling Reels you in like a baby on a string Sliding slow into the bath You see them hiding in the Weeds, Adam and Eve Your lungs are filling Breathe a sigh of relief And still I spin in that car On that road everyday We suffer when they rip The band-aid from our skin
6.
So you spit on riches, So you spit on everyone Spit so much your mouth is dry and you choke Feed yourself on curses Feed yourself on bitter dirt Gorging at the table until it hurts Down in the pit Live with the snakes The smell of fear And all our hate Our bodies slide Pile up To reach up to The smell above We see them laugh Haha, our bellies ache We'd split their sides To feed our face We pass the time Mouths they twist Fangs they show Where lips would kiss Who knows what whispers say I'll be on the water's edge Playing in the bay I find a resting place Lay down in my body now This is what I pray If I'm to die someday Taken by the arrows I vow that I will stay True to the love I have I will not surrender it I will not be shamed In life we make mistakes But if you drink the poison and Come away unscathed Don't let the memory fade Remember all your weakness and Remember all your pain
7.
Dagger 03:31
Every smile like a dagger's curve We're singing like the shot heard 'round the world Never forget but we don't ever learn Live with a crazy heart when we bleed on the dirt Wild animals we left the zoo In dreams our feet kick a tattoo Taking in smells like a thousand colors From dust to rust and so there's nothing to lose Live in the light as we wait to be over The night will come and there's nothing to do Except to live in the light as we wait to be over
8.
Outside 02:34
I'm a believer I'm sure you could tell That I need something to believe But when there's nothing but black-holes in your eyes Well don't you know that is something I think it's fading and it's not gonna last Just like the last time let's get down to the task These drunken mirrors they aren't good to talk to These elevators will take you nowhere Electric visions to light up the darkness And though there's nothing I'm sure it's waiting for us Right outside this I'm feeling antsy so I go for a ride To take a trip in the country The hottest day that year, a boiling hell I start to walk to the water Covered in spiderwebs I get to the edge But I give up and go back into the house These drunken mirrors they aren't good to talk to These elevators will take you nowhere Electric visions to light up the darkness And though there's nothing I'm sure it's waiting for us Right outside this
9.
Sleeping 02:37
When I was young I'd fall and skin my knees The dirty leaves, a bed to receive my leap But now I've grown I'm not who I thought I'd be Learn the hard way Everyday, at night When I go to sleep I fall back into me
