Track Name: Goat
Talk controls the mouse you trap
Mountain scrolls remove your back
Scoundrel goals, they lay you flat
Sound the horns and you won’t lack

Your horns grow deeper as you sulk

Time to face your mountain heart
Find your place or lose your start

Your horns grow deeper as you sulk

You’re so tragic in your lies
Help me wear this new disguise
I’m floating out the window
And I’m taking my army with me
You’re nothing I pretend to care about
Not even in my history

Your horns grow deeper as you sulk
Track Name: Impish
All this talk we argue about
Beat the words coming out my mouth
Wrap them up and cut them down
Peace and love to run this town

Rumors are abound with the crazy of my sins
Let it come around, let it follow me again
Take this time to drown, take this time to fall within
Show me what you’ve found when you capsize on a thin

Thinking that my time is just a windmill on the stove
Wishing that my mind was just a curtain I could close

Rumors are abound with the crazy of my sins
Let it come around, let it follow me again

Wishing away my perfect day
Given to be a magistrate
Talk me down from my last date
Government out of real estate

Rumors are abound with the crazy of my sins
Let it come around, let it follow me again
Take this time to drown, take this time to fall within
Show me what you’ve found when you capsize on a thin
Track Name: Collapse
Total collapse we’ve always talked about
Memory lapse when I open your mouth
Time to relax and sharpen your doubts
Coronary hatch my shutter’s love now

I’ll miss you dearly
I can’t see clearly
This fire near me
It tries to sear me

In my vacant tongue, I can’t sing along
To a perfect song when I’m lost at home

Call my intuition what it means to bleed and never sleep
Tire out my hearing and collapse into a filtered beat

I’ll miss you dearly
I can’t see clearly
This fire near me
It tries to sear me
Track Name: Immortality
I felt your scroll
Taking control
Using up my armory and crumbling it whole
I gave my all to send forgiveness but it didn’t help
My soul knew what was at it’s door and it was bringing hell

Down the path to righteous death
Down the wrath of consciousness
Down my pass to launder it
Dawn seeks more of it’s new friends

Back to work at the graveyard shift
Blocking out my saved art pit
Clocking down to the moonlight’s gift
Docking around this wound I sift

It gives me nothing but it’s rift
It gives me something to regret
I pull my hands over my head
And think what can I do about it

Down the path to righteous death
Down the wrath of consciousness
Down my pass to launder it
Dawn seeks more of it’s new friends
Track Name: Oven
In the parking lot
The darkness takes another tax on love

When you’re sure you’ve got
A semblance of a meaning to it all
Give me a call
I’ll take you up on your offer

This body aches for love
Passing through a cactus dove
I’ll take my fortune to your grave
Don’t make me think about today

Please don’t make me think about today
I don’t want to think about the ways
Why would I want to remember this
Ignoring the only one that gives

My belated crime is empty
I’ll be faded, time won’t tempt me
Why be jaded, hindsight’s twenty
Know we’ve made it, I’ve had plenty

I’ve caught the curse of falling apart
My torture makes itself known through art
A world of evolution to start
You’ll never find the world in my cart

This body aches for love
Passing through a cactus dove
I’ll take my fortune to your grave
Don’t make me think about today

Please don’t make me think about today
I don’t want to think about the ways
Why would I want to remember this
Ignoring the only one that gives
Track Name: Carving
I’m lost on a ship sailed for nowhere
I’m fragile and pale, don’t even go there
I’ve torn my sail, I’m out to show where
You’re telling tales carved into hope fairs

This body tells you lies in order to reach your disguise
I’m hoping for an answer, but I’m only finding lies
This terrible and tragic sauce is burning in your rites
I have no hope to tell you what I’m wondering tonight

This carving on the cave wall is in my head
I’ve got the distinct feeling that I’ve been dead
The walls are showing feeling, patina said
I stare into the ceiling to shutter my head

I’m finding an answer inside my window to the soul
I’m leaving the dancer at my bedside through it all
I’m having the hunger in my brain, it tries to contain me
My lover is absent through the pain of my own reverie

This carving on the cave wall is in my head
I’ve got the distinct feeling that I’ve been dead
The walls are showing feeling, patina said
I stare into the ceiling to shutter my head
Track Name: Ditch Digger
Carry on your legacy
Cut yourself in stereo feed
End it all to block the need
Carry on your Ketamine

Bury you a Sunday drive
Never felt more alive

This time is calling me to dig my grave
I feel this lost resolve, I cannot save
Myself from pulling the trigger of this game
It’s gone into my head, what can I say

My soul burns for thee
Vacant captured free
Salient memory
Caught your talk this evening

You’re a special fright
Cave girl in delight
Stay bent towards the light
Watch pastoral sights

Time is calling me to dig my grave
I feel this lost resolve, I cannot save
Myself from pulling the trigger of this game
It’s gone into my head, what can I say
Track Name: Old Night
Natural haste in your swine
Battered and basted for new lines
Gradually wasted in salt mines
Mad that she tasted your defined

Marrow in the meadows that you suck
Acting like you never gave a fuck
Terrible the meaning of your love
Ask me if I ever get enough

Back down to my own relaxing
I never get the sense of self satisfaction
I beat the walls in pent up chain reaction
I draw a door and walk right through to the badlands

This marrow that you already ate
This meadow that you already are
Confess to come and covet your fate
You know you’re still my shining star

Back to the motions that you make
Back to the spirit that you are

Marrow in the meadows that you suck
Acting like you never gave a fuck
Terrible the meaning of your love
Ask me if I ever get enough
Track Name: The Mast
Talk to the master of the ship that you cruise
Bark at the laughter that causes you to lose
Mark your adapter set to Julee Cruise
Give me the chapter of autonomy blues

You can’t escape your lilac in ember
You based your thoughts on wild December

Remember that you came here to choose
You’ve left yourself with nothing but shoes

You can’t escape your lilac in ember
You based your thoughts on wild December

Be caught and tempt the trial on your enemy
You know you’ll never really be a friend to me
Cut down on broken isles of empty
Locked around, the sacred puddles are tempting

You can’t escape your lilac in ember
You based your thoughts on wild December
Track Name: Future
I'll relax the beat back and turn the corner of my mind
The sheet lacks the street facts that burn the warmer on my grind
Discreet tracks and leak backs that force myself to change on time
I’ll leave that and screech back the turntables burn my shine

Give it all back, it’s the only way
Turn yourself around, face yesterday
Flip it out again, see the future ahead
Give it all to something before you're dead

This party’s over when I say it’s begun
I’m tempting sober and I’m jumping the gun
Your four leaf clover isn’t shining the sun
I’ll bet your mower couldn’t cut down this run

Give it all back, it’s the only way
Turn yourself around, face yesterday
Flip it out again, see the future ahead
Give it all to something before you're dead
Track Name: Destined
Take my hand and watch the sun set
Give me all you need to go there
When you switch off, don’t be goaded
I’ve seen what you want and know where

To find yourself, you need a potion
Your mental clarity in motion
You shut your eyes and feel the ocean
I clutch your wrists as if I’m broken

Gravity pulls you to the sky
Nothing makes sense in any time
People say what they want to think
Hiding away in a stolen mink
