Track Name: You Are Sleeping
Ornate as if a tower,
Spending hours in forever time frames,
Help me fly away to find another place,
Disgraced,
Hello goodbye the name is misplaced,
Set the hour hand back so I can try it all again,
Upon forgetting what I meant,
Overlooked,
Like you I judge the cover of the book,
Mistook or more mistaken,
Tell me where are the cavemen,
They've taken my raincoat,
I see the same ghost that has haunted with my brothers,
Another cover up,
I'm good at bad luck,
Good enough to make you cry,
Not good enough to try,
Selling souls to the devil never pedaled past partial,
Stand still, it's lighter now but you can see the dark still,
I can taste now how you pave the way to daybreak,
It takes a fool not to clue in to the saving of faces,
That we use to make heart rings,
Whatever that means,
Make sparse things, darling, sparse things
Make me the devil maybe,
Draw me a picture,
Take me to the distance because I can see a figure,
I do not believe in lies but I will falsify defenses,
Home grown tension,
Remaining unrepentant,
Sentimental horror stories,
Poorly crafted thought dormitories,
Can you hear the people whispering,
Kiss the king morbidly,
Philanthropic topics in the naming of the slaughter, the gun, and of
the holy tyranny,
Please fear me like a vacant presence,
Just pretend you cannot see,
Believe however,
Similar to acts of blessing,
I'll have you second guessing,
Manifested inside of a pile of rubbish,
The scent never goes away
Beginning to absorb identity,
And Vanity,
Single word visions please look up the definitions,
Partition of the mind state,
Violate your values,
Help me I'm a taboo, I do not know what to do
Track Name: Sad Sad Story Cliché
Never write a song in the key of my alarm,
Never have a charm,
Carving a shape for the greater good,
Wait, take two,
Paying dues in the moment,
Must stay true 'til its broken,
I've choked on worse,
Better know by last name first,
Better yet by a path un-searched,
Yes that hurts but its worth it,
A reflection, sedimented,
And left uncertain,
The current drives,
We lose lives to fit it,
An eye for an eye leaves the whole world sitting in their civic duty chairs,
Do we truly care for the battle of the wits,
Or what is fitting best in the long run,
Betting on the lesser of the evils,
These metaphors leave holes to be equal,
I look to the steeple as it topples to the ground,
Where is your god now,
Where is your god now

And beneath floor boards,
We cry out for more to no answer,
A torn necromancer left mourning,
The epitome of lonesome,
Wait until you grow some and then begin to teeter on the fulcrum,
And beneath hard shells,
We cry out for help to no avail,
Like a torn sail billows and convulses,
Sensing every beat,
Every pulse,
As we count sheep just to make the bleating less indulgent

Better shape up son,
Learn to tie your laces,
Trying hard to wake because I'm dreaming of a place I've never seen before,
Please ignore the stream of consciousness,
Find a fitting monolith,
Slip into a deeper sleep,
Buried down too deep to be returning unscathed,
I've entered in the maze past the point of empty promises,
Time allotted next nothing,
Pray to make it into something,
More than I can bare,
More than I could care to illustrate,
Still the same fairy tale,
Hammer nail pounded to the soil,
It's a royal marathon upon a very wary trail,
Retrace my steps,
To the place I left so many years ago,
Fear that I surpassed the marker,
Harken back to ignorance,
Contained inside a picket fence,
Only lacking hard defense,
Escalate,
Maybe at later point in life,
With a knack for thinking twice,
I'll have executed fantasies,
Without only imagining

And beneath floor boards,
We cry out for more
We cry out for more
And we cry out
And beneath hard shells,
We cry out for help
We cry out for help
And we cry out
And beneath floor boards,
We cry out for more
We cry out for more
And we cry out
And beneath hard shells,
We cry out for help
We cry out for help
And we cry out

And beneath floor boards,
We cry out for more to no answer,
A torn necromancer left mourning,
The epitome of lonesome,
Wait until you grow some and then begin to teeter on the fulcrum,
And beneath hard shells,
We cry out for help to no avail,
Like a torn sail billows and convulses,
Sensing every beat,
Every pulse,
As we count sheep just to make the bleating less indulgent
Track Name: Pathogen
Four times,
New mark,
Past post reckoning,
Pedigree shift to the ships of leather,
Everything tastes like feathered charwood,
Stand stood,
Land a good wavelength,
Pitter patter,
Pave blank pathogen arrest,
Mention a face again,
Five times nine lives,
Energize an all encompassed way to make a living,
Live breathe,
Something of a cold shoulder,
Roll boulder,
Never rocks,
Poaching over better locked doors,
More or less a moral definition of success,
Coalesce a final main revitalizing agent,
Take upon a broken open promise of a ring,
A far fling further from a king,
On a branch of a sapling,
Happening a tenfold time,
Then blind to the eyes of the overlord,
Just five pounds shy guy for the floor boards,
Poor more cement to the underwhelming forlorn,


Slam shut granted that the manhunt starts off,

In a better avenue to travel through the black top,

Such things build up dust in the long haul,

Feed that hunger, nurse that blackball,

Why's god telling me lies, what a disguise,

Awaiting on the promise of inevitable lies,

Fought prose off with lock-pick pistons,

All filled up on my new prescription


Look at the floor,
Now at the wall,
Now at the door,
Now at the dark tall figure,
Hallmark trigger finger,
Ring around the rosy,
Pocket full of frowns,
Ashes ashes,
We all fall,
Victim to a system that'll only listen to the ones with intricate persistence,
At a loss with where to point the guns,
The pacifist resistance only works until the chosen one is simply not submissive to hypocrisy and wont succumb,
When the one twos blend and fuse,
I tend use the trend to extend the noose,
But whats the use?
My, youthful catalogue, has had a long history,
Much less dignity,
It must be the little bit of life in my lungs,
Suffocating everything,
making it numb,
What's to come,
Where to run,
Incapable of comprehension,
SO FUCKING DONE
Track Name: Note To Self
I used to be empty, then I filled the fucking void
I'm stepping over people like my childhood toys
locked inside a glass box, wonder why i'm still lost
met an angel, saw the darkness-severed from the cross
in the moonlight is when my inner demons strike
it seems I'm always stuck between a servant and a son
always on the run, just please... remember the better me
before my first love painted me a loaded gun
I've conquered every monster underneath the moon and sun,
My room is filled with day and night... And night and day
But lately I've been missing what you used to say was great
I tried to be myself but strangely it still felt the same
I tried to be one of a kind but it still came out plain
So now I take em double time,
Watch me do this trick of mine,
I can take my eyes I can turn them from blue to blind

This is all in a note I wrote to myself in my own cold blood

Pardon my strength,
Just like knives like rusty fish tanks,
Can you fixate,
We're i then might think in mistakes,
Blink to the other hand,
Flash to the retakes,
That rebate tastes like sulfur,
Swallow matches,
Watch in wonder,
Cut to the part with a glance to the past,
Let it darken, looking at the double sided glass,
Mans best friend,
Mans best foothold,
Not so strong, cant speak up,
Send that ego climbing ladders,
Drop to the ground and shatter broken,
Never let the shards and pieces glue together,
Now or never that chance, come on lets dance and shower in my tears
I spent years of pointless searching,
It's now clear,
It's not worth it,
Don't you see me hurt or care,
Can't you notice nobody watching,
Watch me now,
It's my turn,
See me crash and burn in the past,
Ms. Future told me since I knew her,
But I doubt that I'll make it to her,
Fast approaching, I hope we have the time to learn our lessons,
Anecdotes I grab my hope and teach it how to fake depression,
I sought the answer un-prevailing so I turned to run,
Blood red, filling pages someday it will come,
Until then

This is all in a note I wrote to myself in my own cold blood
Track Name: Fact or Fiction (feat. Mackenzie Monk)
Hence forth a new force of motion,
Meant for a transforming alibi,
Since then laments a new groping,
Outside a fence of white lies,
I can't see without a blue iris,
Can't find pain beneath a grey sky,
End tunnel light depending on Riley,
Bonding a break in the dark of the night,
Pens will write,
Men will cave,
Free our slave to attempt cohesive amendments,
See that he meant that peaceful intention

Breathe with me,
Do not leave me again,
Breathe with me,
Will you always be my friend

Fighting for a pillar in the temple,
Searching for a member that we lack,
Following an absentee example,
Come back Jack,
Come back Jack,
Come back
Fighting for a pillar in the temple,
Searching for a member that we lack,
Following an absentee example,
Come back Jack,
Come back Jack,
Come back

Breathe with me,
Do not leave me again,
Breathe with me,
Will you always be my friend
