about

A luminous melancholy of sound. The past and present colliding into a dark space. Cathedrals of brilliant, cold light stretching out across the vistas of eternity. Out beyond the light lies our understanding. What do we do once we arrive at this bright melancholy?

Maybe the light fades. Maybe the light leaves altogether. The slow burn of hell above us. The alpenglow of a lost paradise. Maybe it’s both – probably not. It’s hard to tell.

Track Name: Dumb Idiot
You are boring me to death
Every word is wasted breath
And I think we've gone too far
But nothing is for sure
Try your best and keep it pure
But I think it's gone too far
And who will I adore
When you're sharp and I am sore
Oh I think it's gone too far
Well chance is ours to take
And there is nothing left to fake
Oh I think it's gone too far
When my hands begin to fade
And I don't quite make the grade
Will you think I've gone too far
I'm not saying there is no hope
In fact, I'm full of hope
But I think its gone too far
I fall in love with everything
That's the burden I will bring
But I think it's gone too far
When language is to weak
And we're too drunk to even to speak
Well I think I'll go too far
It's like a 60/40 split
Like you even give a shit
Oh I think it's gone too far
And I don't know how this ends
But I'm grateful we're still friends
But I think we've gone too far
Track Name: Black Out the Sun
Beauty black out the sun
Let this all form into one
Craft a careful obsidian
How do you want to feel
When the eyes are trained to steal
All imperfections dispel the unreal
With a heart in the sink on ice
And a brain suspended in flight
Where is your body, the sacrifice
Sometimes I'll forget what I'm dealing with
Sometimes I'll try to become luminous
Sometimes I'll take a deep breath and say screw it
Find the fist chance and ruin
Sink my teeth and chew
Wish I was anything but human
Beauty black out the sun
Let the shadows overrun
Take to our vessels like tar to lungs
With your arms covered thick and thin
And your legs running with no end
Wearing sickness like animal skin
Sometimes I'll forget what I'm dealing with
Sometimes I'll try to become luminous
Sometimes I'll take a deep breath and say screw it
Find the fist chance and ruin
Sink my teeth and chew
Wish I was anything but human
Track Name: Happiness
As the times pass
Lose the context
What's the past tense of feeling numb?
Am I drunk yet?
Making progress
Marching insects to the beat of the drum
I feel a secret
Smoke in my chest
The shit we ingest pushing us down
Try to reason
All their taking
It keeps me waking and messing around
Am I a mess?
Or is this happiness?
Losing interest searching for a sound
All this nonsense
Keeps us content
So I dig my conscience deep into the ground
Track Name: Barf Lie
Drunk at the bar
Wondering where you are
Like, all the time
Does he treat you right?
Are you up all night?
Like, all the time
What do you want me to say?
I look the other way
Like, all the time
Hanging out is tough
You're always doing stuff
Like, all the time
Sometimes I get real high
Hanging with the guys
Like, all the time
Times I'll say I'll try
Times I flat out lie
Like, all the time
Track Name: Mutt
Just like a monster
Locked in the pound
With the prying eyes
All around
Well is it time to be a mutt?
Is it time to just shut up?
In the waking moments
With all the sound
Only I can hear it
Searching for the ground
Well is it time to wake up?
Is it time to just shut up?
You look pretty baby, for a mutt
I've seen the light dim
From the bottom
It's the lack of a emotion
Not giving a fuck
Well is it time to mess it up?
Is it time to be a mutt?
You look pretty baby
Rub my nose into the ground
I'm running now, out towards the light
Is it time to be a mutt?
Track Name: Means Nothing
In the back of my mind
It calls to me
Full of contemplation
Is this really it?
Is this really me?
Lowering my expectations
I was wrong, means nothing, I'm just explaining
Do you know how it sounds?
When you're talking to me?
Crushing my rhyme and reasons
I think I'm getting sick
Fulfilling your needs
I'm on that plane, I'm leaving
I was wrong, means nothing, I'm just explaining
And all of us, means nothing
I'm just explaining
And everyone, means nothing
I'm just explaining
Track Name: Dynasty
Please don't hang it up
I've been waiting for you
To listen to my heart
Innocent enough
I only adore you
Chasing down your love
If we only talk
Compliments are boring
Rip each other apart
Down on wounded knee
Pledging I am sorry
Chasing down your love
Chasing down your love
Such a likely story
Dripping of the cuff
Sweet sent of blood
In me like a haunting
Chasing down your love
Track Name: Homogeniety
In the truck stop, in my mind
You were there, like old times
Your bright face and my dumb lines
We squeeze real tight
It gets easier in time
It gets easier in time
To walk out, to leave behind, to let you down
In the back room, in my mind
You were there, and that was fine
I take your throat, and you take mine
And we squeeze real tight
It gets easier in time
It gets easier in time
To walk out, to leave, to let you down
Track Name: Lifesajoke
It's a long way down
Got me thinking that life is a joke
It's a long way down
Cut the shit boys, let's go, two smokes
It's a long way down
No one ever, ever, ever knows
It's a long way down
I don't want to, but I guess I do it anyways
I say I don't want to, but I guess I do it anyways
Yeah, I say one thing but I guess do another, anyways
I say I don't want to but I guess I do it anyways
It's a long way down
If I ever have to go
It's a long way down
Watching the flames dance and glow
It's a long way down
Burning from my head to my toes
It's a long way down
I don't want to, but I guess I do it anyways
I say I don't want to, but I guess do it anyways
oh what is my problem imowwowowwo screwing it up anyways
I say I don't want to, but I guess do it anyways
