Dumb Idiot 03:21
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

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

Happiness 05:10
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

Barf Lie 04:32
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

Mutt 05:50
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?

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

Dynasty 05:04
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

Homogeniety 04:41
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

Lifesajoke 08:48
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

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.
