Track Name: The Peak
When you reach the peak of it
Can you steep beneath above it
Can you sleep with time’s shoveling
Old coal to keep your mind’s oven

We’re back from beyond it seems
No more games and memes
No more shattered dreams
No more wake me lean

The body is a temple that breaks open when you want it to
The mind is a gate that reawakens if you promise to
Track Name: The Flower
You’re aching nothingness
The world is only stress
You’ve got to clean your mess
This lion’s emptiness

Pulls harder in your chest
You’re lying to this mess
Unwind what’s cheap blessed
Tongue tied with secrets

The world looks back and finds
You’re lost inside of your own mind
Aching on this grind
Turns the gears of your own time

Blacked out on wins to state
You’re lying to your waste
Fucked down on your estate
Come ‘round and find your fate
Come ‘round it’s fine to hate

When you look back in haste
You’re lost inside of your own days
Turning back to taste
The emptiness of your old ways
Track Name: Criminal
You look more beautiful than the day you dyed
Your hair a pressing white
I wish to wash away this heat inside
And turn it back into light

You’ve got my heart locked on a silver platter
I try to hide from it, it doesn’t matter
I could be whatever for you
Just please don’t tell me you feel too

Sick to go a thousand miles high
I could shred your secrets if you like
Riding on this high rise
Simple ties and luminous skies

Every day is just a simple fountain
Rushing ways until we live without it
My heart gets colder by the minute shouting
I’d love to tear you apart

Just to unleash your shadow nest
So you could free yourself from outer stress
I hate to see you fucking feel like this
You’re just a work of art

The shadow that you keep alive
Will have to hunt to survive
It’s not as meek as raise the tide
It’s whatever you like
Track Name: Klono
I see the bigger picture creeping out
It keeps it’s treats locked in a sleeping pouch
Tell me to talk about my interests and I’ll say get out
Your majesty is on a creeping bout

Locked away behind the fire hydrant
Talked about it in your own assignment
Walked around it in your bubble by day
Talk about it, everything goes away

If I find radiance on this peaceful moon
I’ll have to sell my heart so it can swoon
My soul was sacrificed like doom in bloom
I’ll eat the cracker wise, not to assume

Caught a way without your body
Ain’t no way that you could stop it
It’s on fire, no need to drop it
Bought my lie into a socket

All bursts

Terrible flame shooting out again
Misty eyed beautiful friend

Take a look inside this locket
Everyone can see to lock it
Nothing worse than feeling hot dead
Anyone could see to stop it
Track Name: Disappointment
I felt the moon look out
With disappointment now
I tried to scream out loud
I didn’t want to shout

I tried to trip myself out last night
But it didn’t feel right
I called a favor to the sky
It ripped itself into a new light

Tongue tied without a ride

My favors are empty peaks
Cut down with sleekness
I find forever meets
The dawn of peaked mess

What’s fucking wrong with me
Overloaded with stress
I climb the mountain peak
But can’t remember it

I tried to take myself out tonight
But it didn’t feel right
I called a favor to the sky
It ripped itself into a loose high

I could never get by without the night
Track Name: Bleak
I’m fighting wind over sails that squeal
I make pretend none of this is real
My satellite heart doesn’t know the deal
I’ll take my time to open this new seal

What have I done
I’ve killed myself again
What have I won
I’ve lost my only frame

It’s gotten harder just to see the way
I’ll take my time to forget yesterday
My ego’s shadow doesn’t come to play
I leave the battle wound left on display

What have I done
I’ve willed my only friend
What have I won
I’ll see you soon again
Track Name: Drought
Sky turns to rubble in this fucking place
I got nothing to say without my mind taking me
Just left but got back soon, G
The world is an oyster and it’s not for me

Everyday I’m fronting like the KGB
They wanna get my gold but they can’t stop me
I pack and unfold like fake TV
Got my slack on reality, it’s aching me

This drought is taking over
I’d hate to find you so tough
The time it takes to show up
You’re gonna have to show her

The world breaks down into a cloud
It all looks so vacant now
I tried to take part of it out
I only got back what I held

New universal well
Tried my hardest to stick the gel
I fucked up my mind, oh well
Trying to get my first class seat to hell

This drought is aching clovers
I’d wait to find you sober
The time it takes to grow her
You’re gonna have to lower
Track Name: Smoothy
Every day is a new escape
Trying to fit through your newest gate
I tried to tell you not to wait
I think you’ve found me on my way

A new arrival
The noose is rivaled
I try to silo
I keep my pile

I just want to tell you I love you more than the world
I’d die for you to be honest, girl
But cut my wrists and bleed the whirl
No, I wouldn’t do that

A new arrival
The noose is rivaled
I try to silo
I keep my pile
Track Name: Sorrow's Bliss
I fell back down under my room
What was I just to assume
The paper looked at me like I had eyes for it
But I didn’t

I just wanted to talk to you tonight
I speak out loud but the voices are never there
I try to tempt the fates by going away
But I never really get there

It’s tough to find a ride inside of a dream
When you called out, believe me
I saw you shoot down from a beam
Craziest thing I’d ever seen

When I look at you from my pocket
I go kind of blind and rue the day
Something numbs me enough to get by
Always wondering when we’ll meet again
Track Name: Angular Tears
It’s a temporary moment of your life
It’s got nothing to do with what’s inside
You can find yourself in plots without divide
You’ve just got to get by

I can’t fault you for that
This willingness to disconnect
On a treetop where you lay
Say goodbye to yesterday

Too many times I’ve felt the wind
Circling like a vulture begins
I’ll take my time to take the top off
Watching as it never ends

I guess it’s just a story I tell
For what the hell
There’s nothing to see and nothing to believe
It’s just oh well
Find yourself another storyteller
This one’s not well

I guess there’s no more connection
Take time for your own reflection
Don’t bother with time’s resurrection
There’s no seat for this section

There was a shadowy figure that once haunted my heart
Until I caught it in a rip and I tore it apart
And the pieces I devoured like it was art
But now I’m running from myself

There is no certainty
In what it does to me
It’s just vacant chemistry
Don’t you see?
I’ll take another leaf
And cut this final lead
That helps me get by
Track Name: Exit Doors
Too many times I’ve felt this creep around me
It tries to hide away and steal my laundry
It tries to fake itself till it’s upon me
It tries to ruin my life and say it’s sorry

How can I forgive you for what I’ve done myself
Why can I not give you a piece of something else

It’s time for a final lap around the circus
I don’t believe you’d ever try to hurt us
My life is wrapped around a tree, so skirt us
Track Name: Trilogy
I’m fine with the way things are going
Rewind all the things that you’re showing
Steep time in the brew you’ve got going
Beat mine if you think that you’re glowing

I’m a calm star burst in the universe
I can’t live without her sunken knowledge
I’m a monster cursed in my lucid verse
I can’t live without her bleeding heart

Twenty four excise my rights to hear me though
Back when we were only getting cereal
I’ll just hang the noose for new material
Hold the sun, I’m starting to get weary though

I’m a calm star burst in the universe
I can’t live without her sunken knowledge
I’m a monster cursed in my lucid verse
I can’t live without her bleeding heart

Twenty nine days 'till we escape
I’m fine without the sack lunches
We’ll be tasting security tape
Swallow all and destroy all hunches

I’m a calm star burst in the universe
I can’t live without her sunken knowledge
I’m a monster cursed in my lucid verse
I can’t live without her bleeding heart
Track Name: The Slap
I just want to destroy the night
I’ve had enough for a lifetime
I guess it’s better that I might
Save my ticket for the right time

Can you give me one reason to stay
Sanity is such an misused phrase
Can you give me one reason to wait
The other side was calling yesterday
