Track Name: Whooda Thunk?
And I rise and crawl
under an 8 hour day
not to feel at all
am I so brave?
to be alive in time
beautiful bearing gift
the light inside
cultivating darkness
that these walls
and I use to know
don't exist now
at least not anymore
to stream through distances
among the filing codes
stare to the fleeting future
like a present I use to know
that must wear me down
with minimal requirement
dusty bones and rocks
that slide against concrete
while the vision of future
laid us in the heaviest sleep
to where I'm still sleeping
Pour over me
I'm not enslaved
like any creature
I crave and I crave
dark parts of my brain
to stay awake
decompose with me
I'm not afraid
of my obscurity
relinquish my fate
as I sat near the river
I heard it rush right through
for once I shut the fuck up
and I listened.
Track Name: Seizures
Still thinking about the shit I lost along the way
Say, "I'll try again tomorrow" when I wake up everyday
Can you feel the pulse?
There's life still left to live
but death was in love with us
so tell me
What am I to do?
Well I hope everything I do
comes back to you, it's true.

I'm trying to keep it real
but you know I'm still dreaming
At least I know it ain't real
when it's you that I'm seeing
leave me on the floor
I don't even really
want to get up anymore
so see ya on the other side
wake me up in the morning
Track Name: Dream Of Hell
don't stay back there
nostalgia gets you nowhere
block after block
some deepened dark system shock

I dream of hell

Quit your job
Hey, man, what else do you got?
find a reason for your reprieve
break it down, piece by piece

I dream of hell

and I hear your voice
I can't shut off the noise
I just wanted to listen
but you just wouldn't stop.

I dream of hell
the life that I long for
to afraid to get it
i told you a few time
every time we forget it
all I want is to wake up everyday
like an angel beside you
like my own private island
yeah that ocean is mine too
even if we scream at the top of our lungs
at least we know we are the only ones

the life that I long for
I'm afraid that it won't last me
wasted days in the ocean
the sky is cryptic above me
all I want to wake up everyday
like a train-wreck beside you
like my apocalypse venture
yeah, that hell-fire is mine too.
eve if I screamed at the top of my lungs
at least I know I'm the only one.

I left my mind floating in the ocean
all i want is to be happy and beautiful
Track Name: Homecoming Sucked
never coming home
swallowed up by the unknown
I hope you never change
that's what they always say
its always dark outside
i see those neon lights
could have been there hours ago
but im taking the long way
Track Name: I Need $$$
I have no money
but I miss you dearly
I get drunk now
only to forget everything
because it's simple
my misery is simple
I get up in the morning
and it's self-afflicting

I had a dream you were here
but I was only hugging my pillow

everything is funny
when you'r laughing
but nothing is great
when you are crying
I could burn down a city
a big fucking city
with my passion for you
it's horrible.

I had a dream you were here
and you still hated me
Track Name: Bangers
there is Technicolor
flowing through your eyes
so keep them longing
you keep them wide.
and feel the wind
through your fingers
attempt to hold it
for a little bit longer
than you would
if you were back in time
death induced teenager
taking those strides

and you were kind
and no one knew
but I did
hear the hum
television static
asleep in my bed

And you were blessed
inside of that mind
talking of universe
something inside
the ebb and flow of mankind
what had troubled your mind?
was it the lingering dark
of the ground below
the decaying nature
of your skin and bone

that made you sing
a song already sung
among the river
and the decrepit graves
of the fallen ones
Track Name: Bright//Tight
You like the idea of forever
Two Halves stitched together
in the fleeting of our youth
the edges will forever be sharp

a wish for a never-ending summer
but the summer could be a bummer
if all you can think of
are all the repeated mistakes

And it's a struggle to remain
when nothing can stay the same
and you are completely out of luck

and it's a struggle to maintain
or find something to say
when you can no longer give a fuck

And it's the same shit everyday
and you'd do the same shit anyway
in the crater of my heart
there ain't no future anymore

To speak of birth you never chose
time is not a ghost
to find a pulse in the void
to become calm collected and sure.

and to channel our dead selves
among the memories of a million tiny cells
they go out one by one by one
on to death, like a tiny, tiny sun

and I cannot remain
