Track Name: After A Dream
I awoke in the very same pose
Despite a bout of imperfect dreams
An overwhelming voice from within
Grabbed my lungs and throat and it screamed

“And our thoughts disintegrate like a good day
Breezing along at a passing glance
Bouncing about and weary no more

Plain to see and proud to be
No limitations towards desperation
A gurgling sea of purity

Affection to share with nothing but care
Warmth and smiles in very short whiles
Perfecting none, that goal is a myth
The attainment is your new shining prize

Don’t strive but become with little pursuit
No sweat lost in longing but only in living
As needed, as one, as only, as none

Painting the world after it’s done
Not planning before or mourning the yore
No more to presume or planting your gloom

Spread teeth over your face
Admire this beautiful fucking place”
Track Name: Incessantly
The tumor inside my brain
Talks to me incessantly
But it never has much to say

The blood that’s inside my veins
Flows through me incessantly
But it always gets in the way

The impulse that guides my reins
Strangles me incessantly
And it won’t ever let me play

Won’t ever let me play
The tumor inside my brain
The blood that’s inside my veins
The impulse that’s guides my reins
Track Name: Further From You
You never opened your mouth
With the sincerity
That escaped from your pen

No words were uttered
That could ever eclipse
The depth and the love you pooled in that wet ink

You managed to see this as a strength
This silent tension that filled up the air
Fantastic illusions of understanding
That static depression, alive and left bare

I told you “I’m sorry,” you wrote out the words
I told you “I love you,” you wrote out the words
I told you to hate me, you ran for your pen
I told you “I’m leaving,” you opened your mouth

A years worth of words
Dusty on your tongue
Poured out from your lips like a treacherous storm

Attempting to cut off the path
Of my only escape
A road that grew brighter as it wound
Further, further, further
Further from you
Track Name: Unadulterate
She said “I never gave up, I was always the ghost”
She said “I never gave up, I was always the ghost”

She spread, her lips, flushing cold and there I was all alone
She spread, her lips flushing cold and there I was all alone

I don’t know how we arrived here
Bodies fated
Unaware of what we’ve lost
Devastated

Memories to rust and then to dust
Until it blows away

Where do you draw the line between love and infatuation?

Across your wrist
Across your neck
Fever and suffering
At your expense
And all of us lose
And none of us win
And we’ll both promise
To never let it happen again
Track Name: You Are
You were my woman, my lover, my friend
Some wounds are just too bloody to mend
If I did it all over I’d leave you again
You were my woman, my lover, my friend

The blackened heart memories formed bitter resent
Constant complaints held under my breath
Strangling my soul with each hour spent
The blackened heart memories formed bitter resent

So I’m burning the letters you wrote
And I’m bringing the ashes to sea
And I’m burning myself with the boat
To destroy every last memory
Of you and me

You are my lover but you’re not my friend
Sometimes a love is too perfect to end
If I can’t live without you I’ll have to pretend
You are my lover but you’re not my friend

So I’m burning the letters you wrote
And I’m bringing the ashes to sea
And I’m burning myself with the boat
To destroy every last memory
Of you and me
Track Name: Dark Matter Town
I dug a hole for twenty years
And I made that hole a home
Decorated with friends and beer
And reverberating notes

For every cherished memory
You were never far away
Symphonies inside my head
And words stuffed in my cheeks

Then one day a lonely boy said
“I’m gonna write a song”
Nothing too earth-shattering
Probably something about his mom

Or what was on the news that day
Or anything that fit
It probably wasn’t the best thing
But he knew that he couldn’t quit

Years pass by and some friends die
Many good ones still remain
Grateful for familiar eyes
That remember all those days

When we were making the mistakes
That made us feel alive
Curb-stompin’ our innocence
In search of our new minds

The lessons that you gave me left
Happy crows upon my face
Never thought I’d see the day
When my trust in you would fade

But everything must end you see
And this will be the same
You’ll still be there to serenade
Lay a clef upon my grave

My hands are falling off each day
At a time when I found a voice
The confidence to hold this pen
Wasn’t really my own choice

These words just fit into the space
Where your notes let them reside
You’ll always pass along that gift
A song can never die

Music is the only thing
That’ll save the human race
Hopefully that doesn’t mean
Singing kum-bay-yah in space

So you don’t kill the astronaut
Who’s supposed to grow your food
Or end up beating up the girl
Who will mother your next brood

Come back down to earth again
And we’ll sing this night away
Hug your friends and family
Like it is their final day

‘Cause you don’t know if it may be
Or how long you will stay
Am I the only one who hopes
It’ll never end today

Never End Today

I’ve got so many notes left to play
