Track Name: AUSTERE
THEY TRIED LIVING THIS STRUGGLE ON THEIR OWN TERMS. NO. GOD SAVE US ALL.
Track Name: WALDEN POND
MY AUNT DIED
ALONE IN THE SHOWER
LIKE SHE WAS
WAITING FOR THE BUS

I'M NOT PROTECTED
MY NERVES ARE RESTLESS
I HEAR A VOICE
I HEAR A PRESENCE

NOBODY TOLD ME
HOW TO LIVE ALONE
Track Name: SUNFLOWER, IN NIGHTGOWN
I HATE THE PATH
THAT YOU WALK SO WELL

I'M TRYING TO FALL
THROUGH THE SUBWAY GRATE
4X4 MY OPEN FLOOR
LITTLE THINGS, STRANGERS WANDER IN
LITTLE THINGS, BIRDS COME FLYING IN

SHAME AND THIRST
WHICH CAME FIRST
YOUR WET LIPS
DRUNKENNESS
SUNFLOWER, IN NIGHTGOWN
YOU WEAR FOR
GHOST LOVERS
I CANNOT
POSSESS YOU
I SHOULD NOT
I WANT TO
OBVIOUS DISTANCES
NO CURRENT
NO MOTIVE

STOP YOUR HEART
LEARN TO STOP YOUR HEART
Track Name: OUR FAIR OPPRESSORS
I JUST CAN'T BREATHE
AND I WON'T
AND I CAN'T
GIVE
CAUSE YOU'RE
AN OPEN THROAT
WASTING BREATH
I AM DOWN
AND YOU JUST CANT HELP ME UP

RECLAIM THIS LIFE AS YOURS
NOTHING IS LOST
EVERYTHING PRIOR RESTORED
THE INTERIM, FORGOT
TELL ME I SAW NOTHING
A TRICK OF THE LIGHT
I KNOW YOU LIED
I'LL BELIEVE IT TONIGHT


I KNOW THAT THERE'S MORE THAN A FLEETING APPARITION
ENDLESSLY LYING SUPINE
YOUR SECRET'S SAFE WITH ME
Track Name: ROCKY SULLIVAN DEATH SCENE
YOUR MARKS ARE GONE
ST. JOHN HAS COME
JUXTA CRUCEM
LACRIMOSA

I TRIED TO BITE
MY SHOULDERS LIKE
MY TEETH DON'T GRIP
LIKE YOURS DID

I GRASP AT SOMETHING
MORE FILLING THAN AIR
ELIXIR TO SORROW
RELIEF FROM DESPAIR

CONCUPISCENCE, LIMERENCE
A VAST YAWNING ACHE
A BOTTOMLESS YEARNING
ONLY ONE THING CAN SLAKE

MY FANTASY OF HONESTY

MISERABLE
AND I'M STRETCHED OUT
ON DAYS YOU WOVE
AN UGLY SACKCLOTH SHROUD
WITH EVERY DOUBT OF MINE
BUT IF I THINK ABOUT IT NOW...

I'LL KILL THIS LOVE TONIGHT
Track Name: CHIMERAS
RISE UP
DETRITUS
BELOVED
OF OSIRIS
TAUNTED BY FOES IN DESPONDENT REPOSE
AWAKE
TO YOUR CHANCE
TO TAKE VENGEANCE
HOLY INDIGNATION REANIMATES FLESH
LUNGS WITHERED NOW QUIVER WITH FURIOUS BREATH
REWRITE THIS HISTORY OF MISERY AND BLOODSHED
PURGE THIS WORLD OF THIS SCOURGE OF THIS BLACK PLAGUE
LIKE DAYLIGHT CASTS OUT THE NIGHT
Track Name: WELTZSCHMERS
I gaze out the rose tinted windows of my ghost, but the sight that greets them just leaves them sore.Perception's a cracked windshield when the shot glass is half full.
Under noxious concussion sleep, I have a nightmare of discrepancy between what is and what could be.
So taken with possibility that I can't see the forest for reality.

This world is not my home, I'm just passing through. I'm still trapped on this desolate stone every time I click my ruby shoes.
Expunge my existence like a minor offense committed by an adolescent deity pubescent petty piety. Cursed into birth,life sentence unearned,
can't spring the clink of unrest,the house arrest of never feeling at peace. Peace of mind,a piece of mine: I WANNA DIE.

I just wanted to know...
(if your heart's so far from home.)
I just wanted to know...
(what are you riding out alone.)
If your heart's in your chest, or in the dirt

And what the fuck! The sunset is just polluted skies and Fall, which halts our breath, is just the color shit turns when it dies.
Track Name: SUCCESSIONS
breathe in, breathe in, breathe in
and breathe out slowly count to ten
find the courage to find a clear mind
as yr heart beats itself into submission

i miss the safety of the past
when the world was more vast than
the front yard, its hard
my body was fine then and so was I.

those birds, their songs, these days
are like a din. their voices complain that the sun is a menace, so arrogant,
how its light can never fade

But I feel so close to the ceiling and nothing else
and life's like falling asleep before the sun sets
the curtains do no good so you took them down

But I'm not brave enough to try
to keep these hands from shaking
so I shut my eyes tighter than I ever thought I could.
Try to make it stop.

God, I'm not brave enough to try
Cause aging is just a succession of smaller, whiter rooms for us to pace in. And I'm scared.

But you can't stop a moving train
Or capture life in a picture frame,
you can only understand and accept
so breathe in, breathe in, breathe in, breathe in, breathe in.

And I'm not afraid anymore.
Track Name: LITANY OF LORETO
I WROTE YOU A SHAMEFUL LITANY
DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT FROM ARM'S LENGTH
DISCREPANCIES
BETWEEN YOU AND WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME
I CANT DECIDE
BETWEEN YOU AND WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME

HOUSE OF GOLD
MORNINGSTAR
DISTANT GHOST
FACE OF GOD

THERE IS NO VESSEL, THERE IS NO HOME
IMPERMANENCE, IMPERMANENCE

YOUR PENANCE IS THIS
YOU CANNOT CONFESS
