Track Name: This One
i can't write it down, so listen well
i'm not drunk, i just can't spell
great, now what was i gonna say?

every hour that we have left
is much better than tomorrow's best
aren't you glad i remembered that?

come on, where's that smirk i fell for?
hold on to this one 'til it's "on to the next one!"
Track Name: Sellout
sentimental songs will always lose
to every kind of drug and national news
my arm is a host for empty words
and in my head a presidential hearse

so take out your needles and let's talk
you tried to smile and that's a lot
what if i told you that was just what i needed
just as good as three kicks to my stomach

tongue in cheek, try to move it toward the center, center, center
so i know what you mean
and if you can push ten numbers, then you're better, better, better
and i won't intervene

i found all my friends as good as dead
forced my face to move in ways it hadn't yet
i fought every reservation when you swore
that you were not a metaphor
Track Name: That Awful (Act 1)
our hands pitch and climb
not knowing what to hold onto
frustrated, clumsy birds
when they call out i stare at the ground

everything feels like it's ripping the fabric
a soul that won't let me make words
you'll know there isn't a god on earth
when this hate rushes out of my finger tips

i know i'll never love you, anyway

i am pure
Track Name: Attached (Act 2)
walking briskly as i swallow second sick
heart is kicking like a newborn heretic
i want everything to be as right as rain
cold and steady, flooding tragedy sustained

hold on to it if you think it keeps you safe
but i caught a glimpse of things i could have in your place
i thought for hours but i only thought of three
a skittish dog, a loyal drug, a little boy that couldn't speak

when red started screaming i realized he led me astray
through violent circles and lines drawn on the tv
you offered an exit a series of buttons to press
i'm getting off fine now just not in the way you'd expect

you chose to stick with me instead of others with
same starts and endings but completely different pith
who's deserving of this bleak coincidence?
forgive me, i won't try to wrap these idle hands around your neck
Track Name: The Next One
slow down
they'll raise your rates
hung up
on some old shape
i'll dart
pull my chain
i would have let you rush away

our ark
a resting place
above
the ground, was made
all fair
and it stays
i wanted you to wash away

and in a future world
we'll share a rebel dance
headdressed mavericks well aware
of wild hunters hiding in the grass
Track Name: Started
put out trite expectations
a schedule for primping belvedere
i'm out of invitations
call me back when you're done serving elderly political careers

"who was driving when we crashed?
who's supposed to foot the bill?
who could live like this/live with this?"
easy, easy

it was autumn in your pale green window vale
in what seemed to be a fine and narrow plane
it was honor filling up the city bus
polished doubts illuminated for the good displayed beyond the window pane

"who was driving when we crashed?
does it matter? "yes, of course it fucking does
don't tell me i, don't tell me i…"

easy, easy

ten years ago pronounced dead on the scene

you hate what you started

how long will you live without reveries
when you see his mother buy groceries?
Track Name: Rattle (Act 3)
i woke up on the bank of a river, dry as a bone
my home, the moss, the dirt, a sanctuary found, i couldn't find
my arms and legs but i'll still get around

such ardor filled my heart, it moved my hands for me, right out of wait
a small investment, quite a quick turn around, unhinge my jaw
swallow whole, i won't need to eat for many, many hours

i am a product of your rule
of bars set in the clouds
i'll keep what's left of me, i'll keep what's left of me
and tunnel deep into the ground

sullen look tattooed on your plastic face, you had a choice
gave your limbs and fingers strings, you didn't say a word
you couldn't find a hand to move your lips to ask "why"
Track Name: Vultures (Act 4)
you were right, these holes were made from climbing mountains in bare feet
should have hitched a ride on father's st. bernard
whether lost or whether found i always kept you entertained
with your boots tied up in perfect little bows

help me
save me

dingy birds land on his sleeve
blighted soldier underneath
wake will feed then sink to sleep

"have some part of me,
have some"
Track Name: Reset
done before our first
out of order blitz
frozen cauldron, nothingness, witches spit

turn our kingdom bleach
overt fraudulence
reverent of what remains of ourselves

mother eve, answer us

on our backs we'll wait
ready for the great flood
the greatest of them all

force-fed odd retreats
disinheritance
when in doubt we will stop, wait it out

then we'll change our minds
options riddled stiff
placeholders for fourteen empty beds
Track Name: Sharing Light
you're another year older
and you haven't won a prize
but you got to where you're standing
walking many trying miles
so let me take your umbrella
kick your boots off by the door
settle in and tell me what's been on your mind

"well i wake up every morning
stuck in narrow plastic blinds
seeing all the world around me
stuck in crippling denial
why are old men smiling
out on sunday afternoons
knowing well they'll have to kiss their loves goodbye"

i don't know if i can give you
a good reason or advice
but the words aren't important
for we share these selfsame eyes
they've seen all of our nightmares
and our every stride divine
we are strong, united brothers sharing light
