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

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

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

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

Shed Rock 04:08
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

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

Deliberator 03:35
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

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

Lines 03:42
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
