Evil 05:09
I watched you fall apart What can I say? I said nothing And where is your heart Could you at least build a fake one? I was raised in a house with unlocked doors I was invincible Brick and mortar, skin and bones With the coming of disaster we felt the lack long after We closed up the home If this is being civil, I want to be evil, I want to destroy the walls If this is being civil, I want to be evil, I want to destroy it all The suffering comes in steps And flavorless indulgences Success it loves a witness, so you let You let them cut off all your hair and fix you up But it's never the change you want that changes everything If this is being civil, I want to be evil, I want to destroy the walls If this is being civil, I want to be evil, I want to destroy it all Your ignorant abhorrence, I'll no longer ignore this I need it to end If this is being civil, I want to be evil, evil again

Glacier 03:22
Call me when you're in need Do anything for anybody Unabridged, but forgotten I have learned at this young age That they always leave in hate Like the glacier, i will not be saved I am trying to be okay being away from you.

Knee deep snow Of course it feel the day you hit the road for Pontchartrain Baggy ripped jeans with the coffee stained uniform I was stronger then, but I'm not weak now She said as she fled from the house Found a dog eared page, and the notes contained Filled me with crippling doubt And are you alright now? If I could take all of my mistakes And make them again, I wouldn't Cause there's no point in feeling pain If you learn nothing I was stronger then, and I'm feeling weak Fear I may have already peaked Bought a quart of bleach, finally washed those jeans And now we barely speak Are you alright now? If I could take all of my mistakes And make them again, I wouldn't Cause there's no point in feeling sane If you learn nothing

Show up late for some plans that I didn't make Acclimate to the chemical they handed me I give up, wash me out brains in dixie cups Little devil your touch, flood my skull with bright colors Show me all whom i've loved I saw you, crystal ball I could look into But the visions weren't true, I was young, I was bored With nothing better to do I give in, sunrise shimmers I might just lose my shit Little devil you spin the crank on the ferris wheel I am locked in Needle in my side In your lie there's a paradise Straight between the lines Summer megalith was serpentine Color coded eyes Connect the dots with childlike colored pencil lines Hold the grand reprise Burn me I am made of matches and dried pine

Revelatory 02:53
Disposable photograph i took when I was 17 years old Mailed it to jesus, sweet virginia, do you hear me? No you don't, and you probably always won't In higher country, higher daily, find myself quite out of place I need something in between closure and grief When I seek revelatory thoughts in bleak daydreams Leave your acura stick shift, hometown grocery parking lot Turn on the radio, spark the gas tank cause you hate pop You have always talked about what you talk about now Hallelujah, fire and brimstone, satanic verse and your burnt car I need something in between closure and grief When I seek revelatory thoughts in bleak daydreams When you call now, i will surely fall to me knees I am leaving now You can live without me in the meantime I'll wait, i'll wait so far from you Right where you wanted me to

The lights flicker in east Berlin Amphetamine fingers, mine are shaking You ask if I would rather see Japan And my reply, too quiet in the hum of the Ubahn station There will be more time on the other side For all the things you swore you'd do when you had time At least I got to make it through the night At least I got to say that you were mine

Oh Brother 04:17
The wall extended Far beyond the reaches of the city The city that you and I could see When you cashed in all your chips As the wolves around our hometown circled in You know that we left it all for them I stand by what I said So long, so long I know you're gone Bare fall branch knows what I meant So long, so long I know you're gone Oh brother, can you hear them whispering Or did the noise drown out their voices? Saying "I'm sick of making excuses for myself" When I can't help that there's nothing to do Sometimes I fear the gun was loaded Before we walked in the room I stand by what I said So long, so long I know you're gone Bare fall branch knows what I meant So long, so long I know you're gone I have seen this before The higher you climb, the harder you fall on your own Take it from me, I know The higher you climb, the harder you fall on your own

Apotheosis 04:55
Say your message, make your peace Apotheosis half asleep I heard they sell the pills to fix you Hasty question, wounded knee Eighteenth week of pregnancy Fluorescent lights buzz in the waiting room If you're not okay, I need you to say something If there's a holy ghost in a broken home I need the creaking floors and the phantom moan When the world turns the rafters into splinters in our feet You know that I'll stand by you the way that you stood by me Push yourself until you crack Never thought I'd see you back Here in the town that raised and robbed you Victim of drunk circumstance This brand of passive shyness can't Restore the mess that we've collapsed into If you're not okay, I need you to say something If there's a holy ghost in a broken home I need the creaking floors and the phantom moan When the world turns the rafters into splinters in our feet You know that I'll stand by you the way that stood by me I am guilty, I'm disgraced But I never saw a face like that In all my years of wandering We created, we're destroyed Desperate and overjoyed I don't feel this way for anything

Hey Mr. Mason, where are you staying lately? Was that your mistress up late night wailing? Baby Was premature, our sweet Czech mother Been losing sleep over the letter we recovered Precious possessions, let's rob the cradle You know she said she was your wife up on the table I'm no detective, I'm no reporter Let's find a motive in the muck and the disorder If you say you need me, I will need you back What's another night? What's another night of that? Just reach out and touch me, you can take everything I have What's another night? What's another night of that? Convalescent morning depression We got maduros and you made me your obsession We yell quite loudly, nobody noticed We're all just screaming at the wall we're so devoted to the Precious possessions, let's smash a picture Let's write our name up on the wall and call it scripture cause I'm no detective, but I'm a thief So I will loot your place for copper while you sleep and If you say you need me, I will need you back What's another night? What's another night of that? Just reach out and touch me, you can take everything I have What's another night? What's another night of that? And I walk through the cascades The first place I remember feeling something But I don't want to remember anything When I cringe at the mention of that place

Crystalline 03:46
The water’s crystalline So I propose a motion that we shed our fabric skin Dive in and see what’s underneath In solidarity You unveil a hieroglyph on your shoulder Said “the stick and poke was free” I am always loneliest when I’m I’m alone with you If you’re being honest then I can be honest too Sun kissed summer sheen Smell tangerines when collar bones are beckoning discreetly Catastrophe is coming You said you’re suffering Splashing in cold vanity, if empathy is clarity At best you’re murky I am always loneliest when I’m I’m alone with you If you’re being honest then I can be honest too You know I never knew much Went looking for some demons That you’ve been wrestling deeply, said “I’ve been declining steeply Into lust and loathing” Bored your friends to bits Talking about the weeping and the constant lack of sleeping Wolves wear you for clothing I am always loneliest when I’m I’m alone with you If you’re being honest then I can be honest too You know I never knew much about your kind of love I never really gave a fuck without fucking it up And I can see that you’re hiding again from yourself Catastrophe is coming

Vulpecula 04:29
I found a way out of this but I don't think you want to go Cigarette burns map out constellations on your bedroom floor You said "I feel so sick won't you take me away from the west coast, Find me a friend or the next dose, let me give in to the pain." You said "There's no such thing as a victimless crime, Find me a love or find me a high, I need you tonight This ship is my ship to sink." I found a way out of this that I finally had to take My out my course with the titans above that we used to trace You like Vulpecula, you said "I'll sink my teeth into anything, Only the high fixed my broken wings, let me fly into the flames." You said "There's nothing higher than stars in the sky, Find me a love or just find me a light, I need you tonight This ship is my ship to sink."
