Track Name: Strangest Motion
Waking light clearing through my daze
Past hair too short to sway
On a mouth that always prays
I'm standing at the crossroads
Wondering what I want most
What's the future that I'll meet?

I'll just pretend that life is short

What we'll find:
The strangest motion that we could follow
I'm looking back
(See the change)

Setting red sun clung to the clouds
My locks hung free and out
I'm shunned from those devout
Running through an open field
With no sense of what is real
Where did I go? Who am I now?
What's the future that I'll meet?

(I will wallow for hours and hours
And miss this notion)
Try to comprehend that life's right now

Fighting time forever

Can't take control, it all slips through me
I've been so fucking distracted
So what if I can't align?
Who am I today?

I've found it.
Track Name: A Crowd in the Attic
Enter
Wildly 17
Mad at empty

And I’m
Dancing fists of shadow
In the street light

It became filthy with the stains of memories
And dissolved as a child when it hit the soil

A blade tempered with a cold flame
A flam extinguished by a cold blade

Remember beauty as dark engulfs me/it
A pure drop of light into the abyss
There’s a crowd in the attic
Track Name: Jigsaw Falling Into Place
Just as you take my hand
Just as you write my number down
Just as the drinks arrive
Just as you play your favorite song

As your bladder disappears
No longer wound up like a spring
Before you've had too much
Come back and focus again

The walls abandon shape
You got a Cheshire cat grin
All rolling into one
This cat is on a mission

Before the night owl
Before the animal noises
Closed circuit cameras
Before you're comatose

Before you run away from me
Before you're lost between the notes
The beat goes round and round
The beat goes round and round

I never really got me there
I just pretended that I was
What's the point of instruments?
Words are a sawed off shotgun

Come on and let it out
Come on and let it out
Come on and let it out
Come on and let it out

Before you run away from me
Before you're lost between the notes
Just as you take the mic
Just as you dance, dance, dance

Jigsaw falling into place
There is nothing left to explain
The pieces falling as you pass
You look back, she looks back
Not just once, not just twice

Wish away nightmare, wish away nightmare
You got a burn, you can feel it on your back
Light, you can feel it on your back
Jigsaw falling into place
Track Name: Mastless
It matters not what you said
I won’t rest till your lies
Are buried

Life isn’t always like this
We’re sailing this mastless sinking ship
I can’t vouch for the way it’s coming out
Have patience

Round and round here we go

You have no idea
What it means to be this way
Go ahead light it up
Don’t lie and say you can’t let go
Don’t wanna live with this freedom
So you drown it

Life isn’t always like this
We’re sailing this mastless sinking ship
I can’t vouch for the way it’s coming out
Have patience
It makes this silence better now that we can lie

Oh it’s ending begins
On the embers burning away
Burst out of the ash just to fly into the sun again

If I ever leave I promise what’s in stone
I’ll break wide belief takes control

No way will I ever falter
Even if my mind gets erased

What is it you hold that we can’t create?
It’s time to step down
Nothing can show me the way to forgiveness
This life breathes on your misfortune as you die
Track Name: Gargantuan
My brain has fallen out
And dipped in wonder
Bird of no wing
I breathe release
I'm swimming through the air
While the world turns on the spit
A symphony of destruction
Spreading the viral infection
of the human race

My blood will paint the earth
They'll call my shadow gargantuan

Mad vultures circle in
Hear the sirens of angels
Tempt me again
I breathe release

I'm baptized in the fire of the engine
Become a vessel for the damned
To make my final stand

My blood will paint the earth
They'll call my shadow gargantuan

I'll sing from my grave
Without a pen or a mouth
I'm coming outside
A wish for death as the sole last
way to live

I will not be drawn in sand
Should life my journey end
And I'll be on my way

Those who took the world by blaze
Their fires are burning still
Now I'll be on my way
Track Name: Grind Tune
Oh my favorite ruin
Strike and toss the match
You shine much brighter when you burn

Sold my freedom
For a million wasted hours
Spent them all on my escape

(Locked into heaven)

I live asleep in firm belief
These walls are never gonna get
knocked down

(Doubt burns beneath)

This city becomes my grave
A pit we dig in blind faith

Smoke infects my mind
reintegrate what I thought was lost
And I'm nursing on the exhaust

I've been erasing memories
to fit my new religion
Cleanse those sick with indecision

(Locked into heaven)

You gotta die to leave this place
I'm burning myself at the stake
It takes more than that to make me back down

(Doubt burns beneath)

This city becomes my grave
A throat we slit in blind faith

What does it mean
When the lights are fading?
Nothing is strange
Carry on like before
But it crawls beneath
Oh it crawls beneath

Now, as I try to fall asleep
I can hear it
Call my name out
"You're blindly satisfied
Swear you need it
Lie to my eyes"

And if you just take what you're given
You trade in you're life for rotting slowly
