Canine 02:10
I am bad at naming things cause I am always ready to say good bye I'm good at killing things I forget to feed them and I let them die your hands eclipsed the moon and sun now you you're not telling anyone you planted it there a seed you watered it I crushed it underneath my feet our eyes were sharp when we were young our teeth were sharp when we were young I'm good at hearing things like "I'll love you forever" when you said "goodbye" but I'm no good at burying things I guess I dig them up i just can't let them die I am always the last one to see and you are consistently hopeless and never ever free you planted it there a seed you watered it I crushed it underneath my feet our eyes were sharp when we were young our teeth were sharp when we were young

Willamette 02:41
passed out on the porch told a lie that I had told before I said I'm not missing you shout it out to a crowded room eyes they turned on me I don't care i don't care let them see cause there's nothing left to love in me I need a surgery I need a lobotomy or a pill to eat to help me to forget this magnet in my chest I wanna jump this fence hold up the neighbors steal their cigarettes crash the party take every last empty bottle and can passed out on the porch told a lie that I had told before I said I'm not missing you

Submerged 02:20
turn the page your eyes darting back toward the way I came alluding to the fact that you don't want me to stay like the letters that I sent that you never read or that old hard bargained cigarette walking on water is harder than it seems I'd rather be sinking singing underneath id rather be singing at the bottom of the sea where the ocean meets the land spent our days searching for a fortune in the sand found and imminent good bye our end was eating us alive like a demon in a four post bed all those twisted up holy men trying to make us right walking on water is harder than it seems id rather be sinking singing underneath id rather be singing at the bottom of the sea

Runes 02:29
you were walking south down that road I chose the north way, easy, and my ego you had a suitcase held all your lies held in my mouth the taste of a bitter goodnight I cut my hair in the backseat of your car the lines in your face like marble carved the truth life is painful life is painful well now you're turning east up that road burned down the overpass let the needle go we slept there once scrawled an arrow speared heart it's meaningless it's hieroglyphs some ancient art I cut my hair in the backseat of your car and the lines in your face like marble carved the truth life is painful life is painful

Monsanto 01:58
fucking with fields of corn and wheat from our dirt, what can we feel safe to eat and will it never grow again? they're selling poison to our children the scars of a capitalist hand are burned into the land can you see them from where you stand? where do you stand? are you with us or are you with them? are you with us or are you with them all dark colors today from the air we wave no blue or red or white in our poisoned sky but that grass is oh so green but what does it mean to you or me 5500 square feet but we are still hungry we are starving and they are feeding on our apathy we don't want to know oh Monsanto

there was a postcard on my bedroom floor I heard some scratching on my kitchen door it's not you it's not you it was a path that I could not be on I found a way through the thorny place where I'd come from you're torn like the curtains sunlight and smoke you keep the light out and leave my body alone and cold when I close my eyes I can hardly see the freckles on your face they've turned to ashes become a cancer that is eating you away I made a grave for us beyond the sea where I hear those voices calling out to me it's still not you I've got a stereo to drown the sound I've got a blindfold to keep me from looking down I should be over it by now but when I close my eyes I can hardly see the freckles on your face they've turned to ashes become a cancer that is eating you away and we all know I can never leave you alone like the passenger in my car on fire well God damn you inspire me

Holocene 03:38
these city lights it's so hard to sleep and every night I dream of these great walls trembling collapsing around me running for my life what life? why would I... trying to find peace in the spaces in between see the forest but there are no trees an analog system has us crawling on our knees oh technology making waves in the Holocene it's a tragedy it's so sad we should hide now go on run and hide your jaws wired shut but those eyes theyre open wide and I'm trying to find some way to feel alright oh but how could I pacing circles around an olive tree it's flesh and bone it's just biology this analog system has us crawling on our knees and industry making waves in the Holocene it's tragedy it's so sad to me they're now listening it's to protect you I am feeling free are you feeling free too the ceilings collapsed and now my body's trapped beneath but Im still feeling free I'm trying to find peace in the spaces in between see the forest but there are no trees this analog system has us crawling on our knees oh technology making waves in the Holocene it's a tragedy it's so sad

Mosquito 02:09
this demon that I know too well inside my skin my hearts a living hell I toss and turn in my twisted sheets I just can't sleep in this oppressive heat now I can feel every fucking thing it chokes my throat until I'm barely whispering and I can't think I can't speak of a way to resolve this peacefully I saw him staring back at me I forgot I thought he was my family he's fear and apathy and I'm my own worst enemy well his body was on top of mine I hated him and I struck him blind I grabbed his face into it I screamed no you won't get the best of me but he had he had already he had already had his way with me

it's been a long time since you've been gone but I'm not telling anyone I know it's just those hard times you had to fall upon but did you forget all those rainy days you spent out with me begging strangers for their sympathy standing in the shade on some record of a day your hands are shielding my face it's dignity and grace that I have yet to find our sweat clings to the walls abandoning our flesh for something less vulnerable and my heart can't hold a beat it's trying to jump right out of me as we are screaming along bang bang bang went frankies gun you took some shots it's true I'd be a liar if I said I didnt fire back on you standing in the shade on some record of a day your hands are shielding my face it's dignity and grace that I have yet to find it's not hard to see why you never wanted me it's not that hard to see why you never wanted me standing in the shade on some record of a day your hands are shielding my face my eyes are all going blind I don't mind
