Track Name: The Mess That Made Itself
a joke comes to mind as the curtains draw
and all the poetry in motion screeches to a halt
scrubbing out the serpent stains from the bedroom floor
and the searing heat makes the paint bubble off the walls

just stare until they all stop whispering
keep talking till they all stop listening
you're writing a handbook on deviance
odd numbered pages, i feel it kicking in
it comes in stages, i feel it kicking in

you want your insight, cut out my insides

and as it bleeds wrap it up in sterile stunning charms
with a secret lust for mild mannered false alarms

just stare until they all stop whispering
keep talking till they all stop listening
you're writing a handbook on deviance
odd numbered pages, i feel it kicking in
it comes in stages, i feel it kicking in

there are no answers, don't take your chances
Track Name: Comedy of Errors
i don't need another storm
i just stepped in from the rain
this isn't funny anymore
let me take time to explain

parasites are feeding off her fading thoughts as she begins to sing
are you listening
turning of the tides create a weightless state tat falling seems to bring
are you listening

it's not the first time you've fallen off
but i'm not someone to protest
forget about it, keep rushing on
you know the last laugh is the best

parasites are feeding off her fading thoughts as she begins to sing
are you listening
turning of the tides create a weightless state tat falling seems to bring
are you listening
Track Name: Somewhere Better
to spare this silence, keep calling on me now
if you can help it, transform this for me now
here's your chance, make it right, there would be nothing better

behind these curtains the magic's running out
under these blankets i'm crushed by weight of sound

tie this up with rusty strings and take it somewhere better

na na na na, if you wanted something better
here's your something somewhere better

we're wasting time
we're racing time

tie this up with rusty strings and there would be nowhere better
Track Name: Wait For Revolution
the distant roaring thunder
look to the sky in wonder
the melting cosmic fusion
the grand and grey illusion

avoid assimilation
our psychic deviation
problems with no solution
we'll wait for revolution

she's a boy killer
Track Name: Shed Rock
the floor's so inviting from this view
but outside this moment, who knew
while this time settles i'll thank all of you
for all of this, i wish to undo

let's keep this all in mind

and after this jump, when it's all through
i'll rest and just wait for you, who knew

let's keep this all in mind
let's keep this out of sight
let's keep this all in mind
let's keep this out of sight
Track Name: Above The Street
i can't wait to see or want to tell
tear the tags of all the souls you'll sell

and to stay together is to pull yourself apart
a hail of arrows in the skeptic's heart
and the everafter will cut you down to size
a hail of arrows in the owner's side

i can't wait to get this out of me
hanging from the vines above the street

and to stay together is to pull yourself apart
a hail of arrows in the skeptic's heart
and the everafter will cut you down to size
a hail of arrows in the owner's side
Track Name: Walk Down The Road
boom click boom boom chick
Track Name: Deliberator
can no longer bear to contain
it's hit me like a bullet train
fade in and out and once again
if only you saw things half as plain

for now we'll dance the night away
so long the time we spent away

if i were my fortunes i'd be sold
cradle my comfort from the cold
cause i'll always be the last to know
caught in the quicksand, i can't

go
i can't go, if i could, i don't know
i don't know if i should, i could
go

for now we'll dance the night away
so long the time we spent away
if i could, i would, for now i'll stay
Track Name: Things Underground
the lights that flick like fluorescent candles inside
an empty box, wrong side up, tossed aside
the owner's gaze sank further into the sunrise
to his dismay he had not seen the glow in some time

and it's not a quest for meaning
it's in the earth and the trees
and it's so much to deal with
it's so much to deal with

as we're bathed in rays and magnetic waves from the sky
i can't go much further but that doesn't mean i can't try
such similar states, the twins lay face down on the tiles
familiar fates, these tunnels stretch downward for miles

and it's not a quest for meaning
it's in the earth and the trees
and it's so much to deal with
it's so much to deal with
Track Name: Lines
it's not that i can't read between the lines
it's just that i tend to miss the point sometimes

treading water so uninviting

it's not that i can't walk the straightest lines
it's just that i like to retrace my steps sometimes

trickly tracks so undecided

and this surge of weariness is my greatest enemy
and if fall is evident then it's time for falling

it's not that i can't keep myself in line
it's just that i like to stand outside sometimes

and this surge of weariness is my greatest enemy
and if fall is evident then it's time for falling
and i wouldn't change a thing cause it's just what's meant to be
and if fall is evident then it's time for falling
so hold on for your life
