Track Name: Release Me
Let me be far from any
Accusations of my being
Less than I would really hope,
Far from this Empire's choke,
Cold men, the easily duped,
The burden of daily disputes.

Release me
As it howls.
Release me.
What if I just knock me out?

My waking state comes and goes,
I have to force it to flow.
Made up and misunderstood,
Man I'm lost in the woods.
White ribbons seep through my blood.
Ankle deep into the mud.

Release me
As it howls.
Release me.
This current just drags me down.

Release me
What if I just knock you out?
Track Name: Caught In A Hurricane
It’s like I’m caught in a hurricane.
In the eye of a storm that’s raging around me.
And there’s no way to really fix.
Especially when I don’t even notice it’s there.
I have to get through, somehow, to the other side.
Find my place to sit.
Sit there too, stay there, and don’t move.
Out of the dust and the doom.

Forget about you.

There are choices aplenty.
Most of them fill be with a special kind of doom.
I have old tomes and stones games to occupy me,
But somehow that just seems so empty,
So hollow, see through.
It’s like I’m caught in a hurricane
And I’m supposed to believe this is what it looks like clear.
I need to forget about tomorrow.
I need to forget about being cruel.

Forget about you.

There was a field of flowers.
It was red all day through.
It would still be there you know.
If it wasn’t for you.

Where? In the loss of hours.
Where? In the turning of the screw.
There, in the burning of the dawn
Through yesterday’s proofs.
Track Name: Witchcraft
Armed to the teeth, such a thorn in my side.
Her mad-capped witchcraft is sucking me dry.
As black as night and as deep as the sea.
There’s no escaping her hold on me.

Cast me out.
Cast me out on my own.
Cast me out.
She Cast me out all alone.

A pox on my skin. A plague on my house.
She’s cursed my life, there is no doubt.
I’m like a raven who cannot fly,
Falling to earth in the firelight.

Cast me out.
Cast me out on my own.
Cast me out.
She Cast me out all alone.
Track Name: Howler
Rising and setting, the two sky figures
Swing through the narrow cloud train.
They cut the sky into long blue ribbons
Like the sense of rising in the cold rain.

Bones bulge out of oaks
They harden on the red wind,
And time’s conviction moves them
From book to rigid book end.

Meanwhile, the fires are breeding and beating
Holes into hollow opinions.
We slip into never speaking
And preciously guard our own dominions.

Fear grows out of hope
Then hardens on the red wind.
And sad convictions move them
From book to ragged book end.
Track Name: Out Of The Dust
I lie awake, listen to you breath.
I’ve made mistakes listening to need.
I wonder what I have brought out,
Out in the air, into your house.
Sometimes I change.
Sometimes, I’m changed.
Peel with the thunder.
Fall with the rain.

But you’ve got to rise, rise, rise
Out of the dust
You’ve got to climb, climb, climb
It’s never enough.

Stick to the sides. Lye on the floor.
Up on the hill, can’t reach the shore.
I expect too much and nothing at all.
Long to be yours, ignore your call.
Don’t want to know
Just want to be known.
Say the right words
Though I haven’t grown.

But you’ve got to rise, rise, rise
Out of the dust
You’ve got to climb, climb, climb
It’s never enough.

I lie awake, listen to you breath.
I’ve made mistakes listening to need.
I wonder what I have brought out,
Out in the air, into your house.

But you’ve got to rise, rise, rise
Out of the dust
You’ve got to climb, climb, climb
It’s never enough.
Track Name: Black White
Who’s got it figured out yet?
The ones who know you the best.
You gotta guess the rest.
You’ve got to pass their test.

Who’ll get the trigger pulled next?
The ones that know you the best.
You gotta let them rest.
You gotta wear their crest.

Black/White
So Believable.

Black/White
Almost feasible.

Black/White
Very Teachable.

Black/White
So achievable.

Black/White
Too unspeakable.

Black/White
Unreceivable

Black/White
Interchangeable.

Black/White
Just unbeatable.

Who’s got it figured out yet?
The ones who are compressed?
You gotta be obsessed.
You gotta seem oppressed.

Lips keep moving but you never speak.
Speak your mind. Speak your mind. Speak your mind.
Track Name: Something Like Life
I thought I heard her calling
A letter at a time.
Spelling out the future
With cigarettes and something like life.

Adjust or maybe falling.
She does right.
Standing on the corner
All hands and bright eyes
And something like life.

Just a touch you’re broken
Black and white.
Long for days filled up with
Stars and surprise
And something like life.
Track Name: Electrify
It’s so green.
An emerald sigh.
Down into the blood
Fills you up inside.
She’s underneath
Yellow blown
Where’s a crown and sits
Upon her yellow throne.

I throw me down
And I breath
Electrify
That quiet me

The moon is a garden
A garden of snow
A guardian through the trees
Thinking down below.
Their long black inky bows
Arch back to back
And mingle as they grow.

I come around
And I dream
Electrified
At the seam
Track Name: Anodyne
It moves away in waves
In twos and threes
A lifetime apart to the edge of thinking.
The streets recede
Grow to become shadows and long
She sleeps deep in the pillow.

Anodyne
Anodyne

Shimmer the tide
Down to be
Shimmer the tide
Falling from me

Shimmer the tide
Down to see
Shimmer the time
Falling away from me

Shallow in a shallow sea.
Sinking beneath
The air clings like a green cloth.
It slips, rolls over,
The sound is lost.
It would help if I could speak
But I’m leaning low.

Anodyne
Anodyne

Shimmer the tide
Down to be
Shimmer the tide
Falling from me

Shimmer the tide
Down to see
Shimmer the time
Falling away from me
Track Name: Lay It On Me
Waiting all night
Waiting all day
Waiting around
Waiting to play
Wait for it
Wait to score
Waiting on you to
Give me some more

LAY IT ON ME

Waiting on him
Waiting on her
Waiting on them
Wait some more
Wait all day
Wait to pay
Waiting on you to
Give me some taste

LAY IT ON ME
Track Name: The Deep
I was out in the ocean.
I was down underneath.
I was swallowing water.
I could hardly breath.
You were there by the shore.
The ground was giving way.
And I just couldn’t see.
And thought I heard you say:

My love is going down to the deep.
My love is laying down to sleep.

I couldn’t think for the silence
And the ringing sound.
An emptiness akin to violence
Was holding me down.
I was seeing faces
Where there were shades.
I just couldn’t speak
Though I thought I heard you say:

My love is going down to the deep.
My love is laying down to sleep.
