I got out of that house set to burn Years and years of paper-thin words It was my turn 18 years I had to face it 18 years I had to break it No red left in my blood and it can’t be saved DNA undeniable but it’s in a grave All I wanted was to leave there Called a friend for room to spare Wounded but fully torn down I charged towards blood break ground The wait The steps Another slap Condescension comes with a price Tear away all lingering ties
3.
I listened to your stone heart world I couldn’t laugh, I couldn’t fold I listened to your words and shivered from the cold You call them animals You call them others Barefoot children holding on to desperate mothers No answers Just a cover for country clubs and stolen public funds No answers Just a way to keep 10 yachts floating on school kids lost hope When you lose you call it fraud When you win – not fraud Convenient math exclusive to rural marks Don’t want to father You’d much rather Potter (mister) Hide from the mobs you despise in a gold bunker I listened to your words You transparent saboteur I listened to your words and fuck that

Old men with locked arms in robes Slither to podiums I have to hide from all the fiction jive That spews out their craniums Yet somehow a portion of the spin Makes me want to join Did they mean it When they said they’d help the needy and poor 95 % committed 95 % suspicious Slogans and smiles, billboards for miles Every local commercial break They need your cash, your calls, your postcard hauls Whatever it will take But I can’t bring myself to parallel With every twist and turn So what you get: A dedicated skeptic returned And I can’t help my heart So easily falls apart I just can’t fall in line I feel the gravity of the moment this time

Adrift 03:39
Seven times I left I can’t bear for you to see What I look like when I’ve lost All my strength to breath in Arrows in the aisles But I’m still turned around Facing oncoming despair Rooting deeper in the ground It’s not your fault I’m adrift But I can’t reach you anymore It’s not your fault I’m adrift It’s not your fault But I can’t love you anymore This bed is too cold Can’t sleep anymore

Sat in a classroom led by an old nun Sister thought she knew all about rock n roll But instant karma got the best of her When she lied about holding Lennon’s hands in her own All four wheels lifted at night I’d never seen a car sit on bricks Guess we’ll stay home And then a kingdom imagined Sprouted up from the discs that we spun on the floor I felt the rush of possible I was bitten by the sound amplified What did they mean when they said to me “You won’t understand this now” Cause I got it thoroughly It was as clear to me as white hot slices of sun

Harmony, tenderness, Human warmth – are not worth Just cutting up Who do you worship That tells you to aim your clip at rainbows of love She loves her and he loves him There’s nothing you can do to end this love We all have red blood, Heart and nerves under skin Deserving the same (Love will not wait…) Anyone dumb enough To stand between equal loves Gets leveled in shame (…or bend to hate) We still got our friends We check in all the time We know it’s all about love She loves her and he loves him There’s nothing you can do to end this love A or B or AB or O We are all one of these four

Mangled Tusk 02:56
Watching colors in a pitch black room More enamel chips away Structures of engineering genius and doom Against the clouds they sway Don’t pinch your sides Don’t open eyes Chewing on a cycle like hydraulic jaws They don’t care where the story goes The sweat and drool of a blind fool draws Attention away from throes Don’t pinch your sides Don’t open eyes Please Don’t let me fade this way Please Bloodied gums and mangled tusk before The morning light Please Don’t let me fade this way Please Bloodied gums and mangled tusk before The morning light

My old skin been on the run now for weeks They found the body receipts under the back porch Now I got a belly full of lead Standing at an entrance to hell If you ever go to Houston My son works in a chemical factory all night Don’t wanna hear from his old man Just tell him I didn’t want his ending know-how Now here come the lawmen How in the hell did they know? My word won’t make no difference My daddy died long before he disowned me He was a waste and I’ll carry none of his burden I’ll miss the rain, I’ll miss the blue sky that follows Damned if I could find much else to keep me alive Now here come the lawmen How in the hell did they know? My word won’t make no difference Got a belly of lead See you in hell Got a belly of lead

Worry 02:44
Is there light? Is there motion? Do we listen? Do we wake up? Stagnant days with Partial wet masks No more outlets Only waiting I worry for our senseless hearts I worry Smoky clothes from Bonfire assembly Congregation Wind and stories Human lines stretch Staring silent No more outlets Only waiting I worry for our senseless hearts I worry
11.
Satellite, SOS Transmission Failure again I’m folding foil, antenna ploy Waiting out endless white noise I miss you always I miss you always Years ago you never stopped Inspired blur of energy I’m reaching out to open sky Academy of hopeless tries You are the air You are the air I miss you always I miss you always I miss you always I miss you always I’m merely bones on the shoulder The trail behind you is wide No hands can keep up No legs to the stride
