Track Name: Dissolved In The Dark
he opens his lids
till the dark does up his eyes
its a pretty shade
for his brow line
how can he feel
such an ill chill in the skin
when she says
"sir can I get your ticket now"
he reaches around
through the chaos inside of
his breast pocket
full of spikes
it reminds me why
and he knows
that at this point
everyone has made their home
its not just a plan for the future
and nothing is going right
and all the diamonds are dull
and every night
that she comes home
he is gone
but still just sitting there
Track Name: Cycling
he's got her now
and thats all that he cares about
he's made her cry
and now he can cast her out
she's got him now
and thats all that she cares about
she caught his lie
and now he can live in exile

the moment that their plans all fold
they lack the pleasure of that body to hold
the second that they regret their lies
they look back when they look forwards
to their crimes

they both said bye
to their respective lovers
unaware the other gave up on the other
so he never called
to tell her that he loved her
and she never called
to tell him that she never loved him

and so things go
Track Name: Ignis Fatuus
several days
visceral moments
cant seem to find a way out
keep on finding
different kinds of
ways that i can blank out
several months
numbed to the bone
can't seem to find a feeling
struggling to get
back to when I
felt that i was healing

what'll I do? Ill I wanna do is sleep now
when I wake up I see a lot of pain and beauty
cant decide what the hell's better
feeling and dying are so close to each other

Several years
found an excuse
to stay underwater forever
all my friends have gone back
to the shore
telling me its better
the rest of my life
spent in an ocean
floating with the current streaming
I've got no control
but its just nature's
way of cleaning

how can we
save our love together?
the strength of the waves
keeps pulling me forever
make me a deal
just leave me to the motion
then I'll let go and
leave my body to the ocean
Track Name: Last Days In Exile
Mary Anne and her sisters
are closing up the shop today
so many suitors
and so many favors

and all for the feeling
and all for the baby
and either way
i think that...

mary anne and her sisters
are leaving for good
you say its the end of young, well
i say its getting colder

well its evening in heaven
a world without children
all the suffering thats done
its left to old and western worlds
and eastern worlds
and deadly worlds
and bone-dry worlds
and underworlds
dead dead dead worlds

now their shipping us down
straight the fuck down to Australia
just like it was...

all men are devils
down in Australia
the last years will fall
the last years will fall
yes they....
Track Name: Searching, Endless
break the silence cause you
feel the tension rising
you can't manage without
talking senseless garbage

I wanna break this habit
not my intake
so I'll grab it

smoke out all the vermin
that creep inside
cause they set the traps
that keep me coming back to
all the shadows that
keep it dark in here

keep on cryin' wont you
it wont change the fact that
every day i keep on
going back to find some
i know it hurts you so bad
but it feels so good at
the place at where i just don't
care enough about that

please leave me
to my vices
i know I'm wrong but
they're my choices

one day when the hammer falls
all my time spent
will collapse the walls and
every line that was measured out
will eventually keep my body down

please don't judge and keep count
I know I'm nothing right now
but all I care about is
keeping further from this

I know I'm nothing
Track Name: Penumbral Exits
I got my heart stamped out
but it still beats here
slower and slower and slower

so here it lays for now
just pumping blood on the
asphalt while nobody watches

even though I'm just
trying to die
without dying

I can hear my heart trying
to survive
it's trying

its not up to you to decide
when its right
its not up to me to rely
on keeping you inside my mind
your light just keeps on fading

the winter days just keep on getting
more like night
the winter nights just keep on going
on like highs
i just keep on getting further
Track Name: Music For An Execution
and when you came
all the forces of nature
they all came crashing down
and all they saw was
an empty gesture
we all have to play our parts

please understand
cause I can't lose you
and I can swallow exile
but I'm not gonna
let your feeling die
if your not my plan
then I'm fine to let my life run by

I know we've had our hate
who wouldn't in this state
please forgive me now
everything else I've known is shit
my friends have gone
cause I've gone on them
I'm sinking further in the muck
so please forgive me now
I'm sinking further in this much
and I've forgiven you somehow
