Track Name: BBS
Sell those
I see em through the cuts
Elbows
I feel it in the guts
and if you need these
they won't be hard to find
All things need to see
and watch big B

and lie
pretty much said they're overfed
and why
can't I get off less consequence?
I'm dying
to get back to all the fat
and fry
feel a bit better again

bowl of pills fed with a spoon
dressing is gleaming in the pools
and if you need me
I won't be hard to find
won't be missing me
while I dream of these

and lie
pretty much said they're overfed
and why
can't I get off less consequence?
I'm dying
to get back to all the fat
and fry
feel a bit better again

where's all this power?
it's tending to be quite quiet now
been there and lower
can't seem to shut up for a minute now
where's all this power?
it's tending to be quite quiet now
bend even lower
can't seem to reach

lie
pretty much said they're overfed
and why
can't I get off less consequence?
I'm dying
to get back to all the fat
and fry
feel a bit better I guess
Track Name: Last to Die
give a little love but you always ask the cost
it's the summer of disease and the spirit of the frost
with the holy neon tease
and the freezing cosmic breeze
with the better brain say please
best be getting on my knees
so-called conscience declawed and blind
don't forget your bullets man,
execute on a dime

gimme the trees
I'm feeling alive
ensuing depression
shut up and drive
feelin the victim
feelin alone
can I go on?
remains unknown

we are all that passes by
forgot to live
afraid to die
frightened still
we feel so high
the weakness is the last to die

give a little love but you always ask the cost
it's the summer of disease and the spirit of the frost
with the holy neon tease
and the freezing cosmic breeze
with the better brain say please
best be getting on my knees
pretty pictures and ugly minds
call it compliment of fate
I've over-thought and died

gimme the trees
I'm feeling alive
ensuing depression
shut up and drive
feelin the victim
feelin alone
can I go on?
remains unknown

we are all that passes by
forgot to live
afraid to die
frightened still
we feel so high
the weakness is the last to die

cry in case for distasteful makes for life a waste and cries for more
pry inside of these empty vines
there's nowhere to hide anymore

give a little love but you always ask the cost
it's the summer of disease and the spirit of the frost
with the holy neon tease
and the freezing cosmic breeze
with the better brain say please
best be getting me the trees
I'm feeling alive
ensuing depression
shut up and drive
feelin the victim
feelin alone
can I go on?
remains unknown

we are all that passes by
forgot to live
afraid to die
frightened still
we feel so high
the weakness is the last to die
Track Name: Rim Liquors
Caught me twitchin
now how you handle indecision
push through
contagion
the idea is spreading out to leach
realize sisters, brothers, we're losing you
don't go there
ain't no need to find it til it's lost

don't think I ever said this gets easier
waiting for the center
man, it's been around a while
don't think I ever asked you for anyone
lying through my teeth but please
I just need something to ease down from...
all the same

context collision
predicated on division
lies to untie
knotted many thousand times still break
modernize neural colors
like you wanted to
I'll go there
life's too fucking long to remain stuck

don't think I ever said this gets easier
waiting for the center
man, it's been around a while
don't think I ever asked you for anyone
lying through my teeth but please
I just need something to ease down from...
all the same
Track Name: Mime
race to the front of the line
we're waiting for you
must stay impressed but don't lie
we'll shoot if you do

but don't lose your head
manage it and mime
love and prosper
pretend hope to find

pace start but spare not a dime
we're waiting for you
slip stitch but get back in line
think fast or you'll lose

but don't lose your head
manage it and mime
safety, comfort, half a clue, and sight

be here
come now
the less you know
the less you doubt
health and sleep lost
come and stay close

but don't lose your head
damage waste or lie
don't lose your head
more docile all the time
don't wish, don't want
manage less
survive
you're not used up
til we say it's time
Track Name: Seven
can't accept or turn around today
but all these things seem to fear
can't make sense or get around
I'll stay
the common test groans beneath me
wait, calm, controlled, and fake

but the feeling I'm after today would just never fit you
all these seven rolled up and burning away
but the feeling I'm after today
eviction of virtue
all these seven rolled up and burning away
in
alone
sense the easier way
faith or no
it can't wait

can't incite or stir what's right
one way?
never best, never feel you
can't make sense or fathom how someday
better things come to meet you

wait, calm, controlled, and fake

but the feeling I'm after today would just never fit you
all these seven rolled up and burning away
but the feeling I'm after today
eviction of virtue
all these seven rolled up and burning away
in
alone
sense the easier way
faith or no
it can't wait

but the feeling I'm after today would just never fit you
all these seven rolled up and burning away
but the feeling I'm after today
eviction of virtue
all these seven rolled up and burning away
in
alone
sense the easier way
faith or no
it can't wait

Track Name: Adonis
could you just lean a little more
allegory achieved
bent yet it seems less is more
leave it behind
to war

think it's time I gave up my face
lately I've been thinking I'm so over these
limits of my skin and this place
lately I quit caring if you see this from the wrong angle

syncopation the theme
deviator
meddle an test my eye
no need to deceive nor fear regret
shift in the view

think it's time I gave up this face
lately I've been thinking I'm so over these
walls but they've been keeping me safe
lately I been caring if you see this from the wrong angle

dream up meanings for right and wrong
isolate me until I'm gone
head shove, meaning to step aside
just stop and let em get you

I will leave it all up to me
I got more than enough for three lives
suck it up man you'll see none care if it's you
who moves in and out
inflate and a doubt
come back spread out
complete abound
breathe in and out
continue out
repeat it now
breathe in

think it's time I gave up my face
lately I've been thinking I'm so over these
walls but they've been keeping me safe
lately I been caring if you see this from the wrong angle

common misperception is the commonly accepted as the one and only way to catch a break and have a vision
common misperception is the commonly accepted as the one and only way to think

nothing to say
there is no need
silence makes
nothing to fear
no want or need
silence makes sense

think it's time I gave up my face
lately I've been thinking I'm so over these
limits of my skin and this place
lately I quit caring if you see this from the wrong angle
Track Name: Lictosy
we don't rise above the power lines at all
where we can be alone again
why can't we all just get along
I'll force you to
but the strings beat back the fools

flat foot
the like of which will never make it out
the canyon walls will lead them downriver
to reverberating presence there

look it up lick to
orange as the colors be
no taking pictures
so hey baby shut your eyes

we don't rise above the power lines at all
where we can be alone again
why can't we all just get along
I'll force you to

look it up lick to
orange as the colors be
no taking pictures
so hey baby shut your eyes
Track Name: Pirate Song
I gather that you got my insecurities dialed
way past the threshold and now we're clipping
this coffin embrace of mine
rigid as it is white
innocent child
I used to know you
but I've been around
and I've seen blue
where were you?
the warning was not written well

in time we sailed
forgiving shores as they faded beyond our vision
no comfort here, nor anywhere
but warriors (voyeurs) know that nothing comes for free now
so we sailed all the way down
been a privilege men

in time we found forgiving shores
and started building up our walls
again they reached decadent heights
and crumbled before I was laid to lie down
so we sailed off again now
toward our end
it seems was a circle
we realized our fault
black and white's been all our gods
begot us wanting hearts

lord have you still got my
greener pastures
and white pickets and privileges?
we've been working hard
been pressed beyond the point of doubt
and all the shame of man recounts
itself upon my head in rounds
I hope you're reached by my song

time forgot the cost of youth
the question left to guess in all
the consequence
the ego dance
the separation of our conscious
feeling of oneness and peace
now billions are lost
wanting just one hint about
why we've all sailed right on down
and all the shame of man recounts
I think you owe us one more day

Track Name: Peregrine
crackpot sting the morés
run amuck and tear the flag
flee those antsy cornerstones
and wrench away the bag
pestilent repugnant crime
stretched well beyond my means
nonsense not as good enough
destruct the rarely seen
in spite of all we thought we knew we still aren't you

once I ask the question
new course has been set
for far away from here
but here's not so far yet
it's hard to look into those eyes and lie again
but you ask if I'm well
I can't keep saying I need more

in spite of all ways old and new we still aren't you

once I ask the question
new course has been set
for far away from here
storm's upon us yet
beggars beg the question
can't by craft be foiled
if solutions find these secrets damn them
I need more

dance all night then turn away
the hour's turned to glass and so did you
you bet your life it feels the same
the retrograde the snub the start the fool

I've seen so clearly
I've know
but I can't stand the flight back
it surrounds me with thoughts and fields unknown

let down so slow can't feel the knife go in
scar face cut cards let's bring it down again
error correction delaying flight again
culpable but cutting quick
the fully fit
the perfect fucking lie

isn't just thought of me exactly what it oughta be
past and gone beyond all chance
clever was a circumstance
caught again let's hide romance
paid for it
pound by fucking pound

crackpot sting the morés
run amuck and tear the flag
flee those antsy cornerstones
and wrench away the bag
pestilent repugnant crime
stretched well beyond my means
nonsense not as good enough
destruct the rarely seen
hey, you're not so pretty now
hey, you're not so pretty now
blame, costing ground
same as it sounds

it's alright if you've got the cleanest
we've got the best and we got the meanest
so try
seemed so
thin and pretty the rest are simian
taking space and using up oxygen
tattered boxes stitched up by surgeons
so desperate look at us now

I've seen so clearly
I've know
but I can't stand the flight back
it surrounds me with thoughts and fields unknown
