Pink Cheeks 02:19
Pink cheeks turn pale, gum lines recede Sunken in eye sockets, seeping in Slowly the night descends like ink Staining the fabric of a weak resolve Absolved of all my sins Not far from fucking up again The clarity and warming rays Only persist for half a day Oh the pain of the pangs I can't have it, my old habits Tugging on my shirt sleeve Nagging me incessantly Blue lips black eyes incisors thin Red polka dot arms infected quim A blemished soul survives on sin Your run down look runs deep within The stainless steel stabs staining skin The plunger pulls back drawing in A wisp of blood, you're just a ghost Burning the bridges you need most Further into your vice You can't break it, so you take it Dignity fully excised Just an exercise in lies

Pneumatic 01:38
There's no catharsis in lying around Like there is in an abrasive sound To carve an indentation in my bed? Instead I'll drive these nails through your head Rodents under river banks run rampant I ran so fast I felt pneumatic, pneumatic Birches under bridges breaking branches I ran so fast I felt pneumatic Pneumatic, somatic, not panicked Frantic, enchanted, automatically emphatic

Rattlecans 02:39
These hooligans and their rattlecans Wagging my finger Tsk tsk tsk chkachkachka pssssst A fine mist, a pigment kiss Vandal, you have no business Spraying that shit in the forest Bathe me in tranquility Not pedestrian graffiti

Thunder claps like a skateboard clacking then A camera flashes like a whip crack smack dab in a wax Museum see 'em all animated with a can and a mate Done with the negatives We don't need them to develop Are you strong enough to break this chemical Bond as your body and mind betray you? Chemical attraction More than the heart knows Contraindications You make my heart pound like a jackhammer Staring at the ceiling obsessing over you I would destroy myself a thousand times Given a thousand chances Are you strong enough to break this chemical Bond as your body and mind betray you? Chemical attraction More than the heart knows Contraindications

Calculated 02:52
Why do you want to hurt me so? A calculated killing blow Suppose you've a spot saved under my skin But darling, I won't let you in And now you're just a ghost in my past That tank has long been out of gas Persist if you must, but please place your trust In letting your place in my heart gather dust You wouldn't know cause you weren't there But lately I've been a little worse for wear Vacant hollow heart scraped clean leaving no trace Barring the buried weary pain worn on my face The light at the end of the tunnel grows dimmer With each passing breath We had a bright summer but now you've turned cold And you only bring death Tonight I'll be a brokenhearted lonely old fool Sucking down that poison til I aspirate on vomit and drool Why do you want to hurt me so? A calculated killing blow Suppose you've a spot saved under my skin But darling...

I'm standing at the edge of a precipice J'ecoute l'appel du vide Far be it from my mind a subconscious death wish It's just gravity Into the mist, a fog sun kissed, wistfully aerodynamic Irrevocably entropic, inopportune time for panic I just hear a certain calling The finality in falling Obliges pure resolve Cause what else can you do The ground's approaching and you've only got a few Seconds to make peace within you I'm standing at the edge of a precipice J'ecoute l'appel du vide Far be it from my mind a subconscious death wish It's just gravity If I expressed a sentiment of distress It's not my intent Neither a victim of chemical imbalance Or self inflictive malice I just hear a certain calling The finality in falling Obliges pure resolve Cause what else can you do The ground's approaching and you've only got a few Seconds to make peace within you I'm standing at the edge of a precipice J'ecoute l'appel du vide Far be it from my mind a subconscious death wish It's just gravity

I might stay in this nondescript place forever I don't recognize my face and I can't remember How I got here All I know is how I feel, like an animal but Nothing's nipping at my heels No concerns, got time to burn, we all could learn lessons Eternally spurning reality, that's just another malady Conveniently, there is a way to take a trip just for a day There's something that we're all in need of But what it is I can't be sure Every time I find myself here I find I don't know even more In between the meandering seams hemispheres Bleed and breathe freely between Swimming in the open aperture of my mind Perceiving one synaesthetic amalgamation I felt it Time was moved by giant cogs Revolving around counter clockwise Spiraling on wisdom truth Gathering distance as we moved The moment that my mind could grasp it Passed with an omniscient flash There's something that we're all in need of But what it is I can't be sure Every time I find myself here I find I don't know even more

Roadrunner 01:41
I woke up with a J Listened to Stopover Bombay Now I've nothing else to play Worth playing anyway I saw her yesterday Her face was dry and cracked like clay Now I've nothing else to say Worth saying anyway

Naked Falls 04:09
Open heart surge through me Being home is a condition, not a place I'm trying hard to receive I'm struggling to give A feeling for a familiar face Reconstruct the moth eaten ego When you're done, there's pieces left over Open heart surge through me My metamorphosis is nearly complete My food tastes better with a friend Smoking is better too And on and on our former selves we'll transcend Reconstruct the moth eaten ego When you're done, there's pieces left over Open heart surge through me Open heart surge through me

Defiler 02:03
Make something beautiful with me There's nothing else You are a gift to the world So be yourself Anoint me, I'm your tool Who's hungry, lapping up gruel Respect's not a factor in However we may engage It's perfect Adorned in clothing well worn then Mended by thee I prefer the way it keeps me warm all day Insulated sweetly
