Track Name: Y.A.A.Y.Y.
It will take as long as it takes
is a lie of the lazy.
Vulture shoulders, rising thermals.
You pick! You PICK!

Ooohh, carrion,
I smelled it on youth breath.
Ooohh, altricial,
hunger crowds the nest.

Some relief when awful things
you await, arrive.
Changing faces in public places.
Incensed! Decent!

You & all your youth
make the old feel older.
Track Name: To Become of Üs
I’m not sure when we'll find ourselves
in the same room again
looking eye to eye.

Don’t let the long days fool you,
it goes too fast.

If I give you my best,
this is all I have.
Promise to give it back.
Don’t waste my time.

What you think
will be remembered
will not
Celebrate the now.

Don’t let the long days fool you,
It goes too fast.

If I give you my truth,
this is all I have
Inspire to get it back.
This is all we own.

This is exactly what
I was hoping would become of us
Track Name: Hey Angel
It's like the 4th of July
and Valentine's Day

Honey hearted, honey hearted
Your rib cage is open wide.
Honey hearted, honey hearted
Soft fireworks, colours called

Reincarnation
Tequila, dark chocolate, the sound of your voice
We are partners in the wild
Sharing charming armor

Hey, Angel
The truth of song
Some things can't be spoken

Honey hearted, honey hearted
Medals without shine - pinned pink
Honey hearted, honey hearted
Bruised peaches, shimmer in cream
Track Name: Roy Rogers & Dale Evans
Sunkist, Chapstick, pocket radio
Bug spray, French braids, stinging nettles

There might be kissing.

Blank pages waiting
for a chemical bath.
A shady seduction;
the woods were our dark room
and our colours developed nicely.

Swap gum, touch tongues, heated strawberry.
Desire outweighs insecurities.

There would be kissing.

Roy Rogers and Dale Evans,
The subject of a million photos,
refused to kiss for the cameras
because Roy said the kids wouldn’t like it.

He was wrong.
There WAS

kissing.
Track Name: Kind Reminder
To dream is universal.
The dream is not.

Lose no time.
Making body earnestly.
Ich bin hier!

Lose no time.
You will have to take me sleeping.
Ich bin hier!

A-moral-ist
More or less.

We might be killing ourselves but at least we tried.
We must do what we think we cannot.

One walks out
I stand firmly, recoiled fury.
Ich bin hier!

One walks out,
positively self-defeating.
Ich bin hier!

To fail is universal.
To persevere is not.
Track Name: Broken
Wait one more day.
Every one can’t be the same.
Sick of my own voice,
you’re not buying this
any more.
Now you’re bored
and you're clearly broken;
I’m torn.

I believe it gets better.
Something’s bound to give.
I believe it gets better.
This is no way to live.

I know you’re afraid.
Every hope has been betrayed.
Sick of your own vice.
Friends aren’t buying it anymore.
You feel more alone,
then you disappear until
you’re gone.

I believe it gets better.
Something’s bound to give
I believe it gets better.
This is no way to live.
Track Name: Debate Team Captain
It’s told
from a mountain top.
We’re tossed
righteous thunderbolts.

We are the landscape taking in reign.

Do not take the bait from the debate team captain
and just because they don’t hear us
doesn’t mean we’re not here.

He rows
We go in circles.
The flames
need water, not fans

We hunger for hope but are starving ourselves.

Do not take the bait from the debate team captain
and just because they don’t see us,
doesn’t mean we’re not here.

Do not invite the darkness in.
I’ll make my own light.
Track Name: Lights Out
The past never flashed.
A smokeless burn
Sudden black.
Too much sky
The kindness of strangers
Too much sun
Crowd clouds

I am a missing a person.

Paralyzed
My bank has been emptied.
Hold my hand
Hostage

I am a missing a person.
Am I ever coming back?

I was struck by promise
and now I think with a limp.
Track Name: Flourish / Exeunt
Unsex me!
Shake my nature!
Rest my worry.

Our hands are the color of tongues.
You make me feel strange.

Make this crown
a cradle. Carve
our destiny.

Thirty six pieces
of crimson cake.
Mouths agape.

We'll flourish!

Exeunt!
Track Name: Energy Crisis
The things we tell each other.
The truths we want
but will never be
whispered tenderly.

We renamed this energy crisis
a cloudy day.

Denial is a disease
only cured by
waking from this dream.

The lies we tell ourselves.
False histories.
What we want to be.
Eternal entities.

We renamed the energy crisis
A cloudy day.

Denial is a disease
Only cured by
Waking from this dream.
Track Name: My Best (Awaiting Your Reply)
A stubborn
catenary sequence.
We resign
to bow and scrape.

I would prefer
to stand tall
and flex.

Whoever you think I am,
I am not.
Every path cannot be explained

Whoever you think I am,

I am more

The quickness
of words deceives ears.
Sight is not
what you see,
it’s what you seek

I would prefer
to stand tall
and flex.

Whoever you think I am,
I am not.

Whoever you think I am

I am more.
Track Name: Fault Line
RISE UP

The continental crust is restless.
Igniting fires on the mantle
Molten pressure
Boiling blood.

RISE UP

A web of fractures
Fire breathing vents
Leads to
A blackened path

Streams of consciousness
(This is human)
Gives way to eruptions
(This is nature)
Your sky isn’t falling

We ROSE UP

Invisible lines are shifting
In precession, night and day
Building tension
Unseat empires

RISE UP

The cracks are heartbeats
Fuming signatures
Seismic
Magma engine

Streams of consciousness
(This is human)
Gives way to eruptions
(This is nature)
Your sky isn’t falling

WE ROSE UP
