Track Name: Fire
This life has sucked you dry your an empty little cup
You spend every drudging moment trying to fill yourself up
A brilliant wildfire, waiting for someone to release it
But Infinity overflows the thoughts that think it
Shake the hand of unbridled freedom, now you’re a slave to passion
A never-ending circus of irrational actions
Martyr to your senses, marching into a sea of desire,
Knowing it may kill you, yet nonetheless inspired

Set yourself on fire
Set yourself on fire
Fire Fire
Fire Fire
Fiiiiiiiiiiirrrreeee
When there’s nothing left to burn
You have to set yourself on fire!

You may detest,
Say the ashes of your actions left you a misanthropic wreck
You may hide under your covers, and feel you failed the test
But let forest of your failures fuel that fire beneath your breast
Cause the black smoke will rise you, free you and revive you,
The burning of the firebird births a firebird anew,
A kerosene ablution, your both the shroven and the shriver
When there’s nothing left to burn you have to set your self on fire

Set yourself on fire
Set yourself on fire
Fire Fire
Fire Fire
Fiiiiiiiiiiirrrreeee
When there’s nothing left to burn
You have to set yourself on fire!
Track Name: The Road Less Travelled
The Road Less Travelled

Intro


The winters a splinter in my mind
That shivers down my spine
Telling me its time to go down south
And so the calendar is bleeding
Seasons screaming for a meaning
The cold wind reminds us our time is running out

So we put the car in drive
To prove that we’re alive
If we ever stop moving we may cease to exist
Cause We have this disorder
Where We have to cross the boarders
When We don’t my feet start to itch

How can you escape?
A life condemned to run in place
Trapped in a torrid, it matters not the pace your run
Because the lines on the maps
Are a freshly woven trap
These cities are spiders, how thirst for our blood.


Break

The malleability of life
Leaks little liquid lights
It will both grace you and bring you to your knees
Cause your heart is an animal,
Beautiful yet fallible
Still all good things are wild and free











Though the years will whittle you down until you’ll die
Don’t turn your back on your own life
Remember everyone’s an exile, a refugee, a wretch
Running from someone or something
Pulling meanings out of nothings
Stealing Liberation from hopelessness is not simple theft

Were resentful were resilient
Were beautiful were brilliant
Thriving between the cracks of this world OH how it’s cracking!
Drifting in and out of meaning
And the feeling is so freeing
We can be anything we want without having to be anything

Break

I will not be muzzled
Trying to figure out this puzzle
Curiosity killed the cat and now its coming for me!
Life’s a candid godless mess
But still must profess
I’m still searching for the operator of this machine!

I’ve get towns stuck between my toes
As I go skipping down the road
Though I know something isn’t right
There still something missing or
Something more worth wishing for
And I will search for it for the rest of my life


The road less travelled
is beautiful and bedazzled
Your life is a wildfire just waiting to ignite!
But no heat will ever satisfy,
Those flames that call from beneath your eyes
So I’ll be searching for a better way to burn through this world for the rest of my liiiiiiiiiiife
Track Name: The Sadness of the Swamp (House)
The sadness of the swamp

V1.
The skeletons have come out of the closet
Bones brittle but honest
Now they’re waltzing around the living room
Why they dance were unsure
Its so wretched so horrid
They dance downtrodden the doom

They yearn to be alive
Have light fill their eyes
And their bones once more with flesh upon it
I raise them from the dead
But you cut off their heads
And send them back to the closet

Our seeds sown we do reap
Are the secretes we keep
They drain the light from the room; now black as a pit
Trapped and afraid
Trying to escape
But your phantasms have sealed the exits

V2.
Your specter comes dirging down the stairs
With your dead-eyed vacant stare
Displacing my figure you recall who I am
I call out your name
But your deaf, blind and lame
You say “now to slaughter a lamb”

You opened your mouth
A demon crawled out
Grinning: “I’m going to kill you”
I begged him to stop
I was praying to god
He said: “there’s no god in this room”

I could tell he took pleasure
As he bound me with leather
He whistled a little tune
I was squirming and twisting
I begged to keep living
He said: “the only life worth living is one that will kill you”

V3.
It was a torture I cannot describe
He pulled the life from my eyes
He took his sweet time working up to my heart
He abused it, he squeezed it
He refused to release it
Till I vowed to let it be fill with your Dark

Then like a black lotus budding
That darkness came flooding
I was consumed by the sadness of our swamp
He opened my throat
And like that I was a ghost
He said: “now this is your house to haunt”

And so now I’m cursed forever
To haunt the house of my ex-lover
And listen to that demon’s insufferable tune
And the words that he said
To ring in my head
“The only life worth living is one that will kill you”
“The only love worth having is one that will kill you”
Track Name: The Bridge Song
You’re an…
Impulsive romantic,
making this tragic
Conundrum—a panic,
Run back where you come from

Entangled in havoc?
This a manic
Joke; and it’s shallow
Humor for the gallows

Your Unforgivably miserable,
Pitiful, Criminal
Fuck ups are fictional
So sit down and shut up cause your friends love you

It’s a long climb up and a much shorter fall down!
Please don’t fall down

You come in guns blazing
Music is blasting
Going stir crazy
So fucking fantastic

Ready for anything
Ready for everything
Lets get a bottle
Then lets go birding

Cause this town is ours
And this is our life
And for now things seem small
But they’ll grow bigger you’ll be off doing bigger better things

Enjoy your little life while it’s still little!

It’s a long climb up and a much shorter fall down
Please don’t fall down
Track Name: Two Barn Owls Circling a Scared Rat on a Hayhouse Floor
The flowers felt like frozen fireworks
Fleeing the ground as the spring rolled on to us
Saying this will be the year we’ve been waiting for
If we can only learn how to become ourselves

Spent all winter in this solitary confinement
You built to protect you, now your rotting inside of it
A sad scared animal trying to escape it’s self
It will feel like a prison break when we finally forgive ourselves

Cause trying to turn your back
On the people, who made you who you are... is like
Trying to turn your back on your own life

Open the blinds, go outside, breath in the air,
Spring his here, let the winter melt
You can be anyone you want to, but first you must forgive yourself
Call your friends, let them in,
Try to laugh, don’t be afraid to ask for help
You can be anyone you want to, but first you must forgive yourself

Outside your window, the world’s plotting against you
Inside your blood, swims a fish that sedates you
Set Fire to the part of you leaving you paranoid and pacified
Kick down your door and go the fuck outside

And were all caught between, past and future dreams
Trying to be who we are, while knowing who we want to be
Getting dirt on your hands is just part of growing things
So I think today I will go plant some sunflower seeds

Cause trying to turn your back
On the people, who made you who you are... is like
Trying to turn your back on your own life

Open the blinds, go outside, breath in the air,
Spring his here, let the winter melt
You can be anyone you want to, but first you must forgive yourself
Call your friends, let them in,
Try to laugh, don’t be afraid to ask for help
You can be anyone you want to, but first you must forgive yourself
Track Name: Trial By Stone!
Caught us a Landstrider and were gonna ride it
To storm the castle; with the crystal inside it
What is writing but words that stay?
We have just Dream-fasted but were wide-awake

Track Name: Black Magic
Born into beautiful confusion more than anything in existence
Existence likes to exist, so let’s pretend

Someone expectantly clarified clarity in a chemical pregnancy
Come sit next to me bear the tragedy

It’s pretend it’s pretend x2
Till I saw your face till I saw your face
Not pretend, not pretend X2
When I saw your face

Wash your cloths
Change your life
Break your bones
Fight or flight
Sell yours soul
Change your mind
It’s a chemical
It’s Black Magic
It’s a chemical
It’s black Magic
Track Name: Foote Ox
Fear is a beast, don't let it eat you
You'll get stuck between it's teeth and I promise they will crush you
Swallow you, digest you, and finally go and shit you
Fear is a horrifying monster, holly fuck don't let it eat you

Cause every day your not living you are quickly dying
From a life of trying to put out fires so tired of trying
In this place where poor decisions and consequences keep colliding
Everyday you don't let yourself live... you are dying

Go hold hands with a stranger, they may really need it
Tell them that you love them, but really mean it
It's not just for them, whens the last time you said it?
Go hold hands with someone you don't know you never know how it could save them

Then throw you life into what you believe in
If you don't you'll never be nothing
Get rid of all those things that hold you back because you don't need them
then through your life into whatever it is that you believe in

I tried, I'm tired.
of putting out Fires.
