Breathe in this smoke, and tell all your children to leave me alone. But not while their heart’s forsaken Not while their god’s at hand Before their souls are taken Our hands will be their hands Three lights among the shelters In fields beneath the earth Light up a new creation Big bangs you never heard Light up the sky with singing. But not while I’m having such a good time, Not while I‘m making things happen now.

RXNLA 03:35
This city is a stop on a methamphetamine trail. What’s your story? Don’t get boring. We can take if off and roam into their rooms, Lying in the light of drunken afternoons. Waiting for the wave, wasted time-- We can celebrate one more line. Wish I would have known (too wasted) We were not alone to taste it. This neighborhood has its children up for rent. In these houses, golden towers. We can take it off and roam into their rooms, Lying in the light of drunken afternoons. Momentary wave, wasted time We can celebrate one more line. Wish I would have known (too wasted) We were not alone (to taste it). All the writings on their walls I can tell they’re gonna fall. If it’s what we’re supposed to hear, then why’s it so unclear?

The consequences are telling me not to say anything Or she’ll be holding this in all her life. The hour glass is reminding me she should try it again Or she’ll be holding this back all her life. Under the water the past slowly falls behind her. Could she swallow it, or fall asleep instead? Are the consequences running through her head? The hour glass is reminding me I should try it again, Or I’ll be holding this in all my life. Under the water the past slowly falls behind me. Could you swallow it, or fall asleep instead? Are the consequences running through your head? (The end of the world and everything after, I want to see this, I want to see this We talk about the future too quite there’ heavy metal thunder inside it.) The gifted mind The balm of time The words I heard through ancient skies The lion’s eyes The bitter wine The truth ain’t always hard to find.

Caveshare 04:17
She holds the future down by standing next to me It’s right there in her mind I don’t want to see her go, I don’t want to see her leave. She gave me back my site at thirty thousand feet It’s right there in her eyes When I’m afraid to show who I’m afraid to be. Rest your mind on my love, consider your size, And know not to wait. The future’s falling at speeds no faster than time. Could you call to make it all slow down? Calming down my nerve by moving patiently It’s right there in her life I don’t want to see her go I don’t want to see her leave. Rest your mind on my love, consider your size, And know not to wait. The future’s falling at speeds no faster than time. Could you call to make it all slow down?

Sand Dance 03:28
Why should you want to stay? Everyone that knows you is here today, And your name is hard to separate. When were you gonna go? They were always asking, but you don’t know, It’s a change you can’t anticipate. It seems you have waited enough. I heard you wanna die I’ve got the answer, Don’t get in line. An ordinary stage Everything will change. Too close to find, go on talking You keep making a fool of yourself. We were thinking songs could hold this: The falling of our minds. It seems you have waited enough. But your name is hard to separate. I heard you wanna die I’ve got the answer, Don’t get in line. An ordinary stage Everything will change. Too close to find, go on talking You keep making a fool of yourself. I heard you wanna die.

Cat Calls 03:41
Wasted, waiting on the name of the law. She tastes it, taken by the cold of the fall. The light we followed, it won’t stay over you. The noise you make when I’m concentrated on you. We take a walk about the gods are insane, Catcalls take the place of our name. We’re painting paces till no two look the same, Tied tongue still it’s harder to tame. We cut their eyes with metal-- Off with their lives to settle.
7.
I couldn’t let me go insane Or put enough in my system. I only wanted us to see We couldn’t get enough to smoke or to sleep. Mind bending forward, Brace to take this land. Shadows cast on castaways, Still they doubt I understand. Maker of my joy, See what she’s been taught. I’ve been missing sleep for days. Molly—happy again, Holy eye.
8.
This is what it seems I sleep, you sleep Nickelodean dreams An heir to the old throne He’s seven cities out writing our names down now Lying while we wait The moment you shook away the seas Our minds took to mountains you took to me In a nickelodeon dream I come when your sense is mad as hatters Waited until the morning after a nickelodeon dream When I say it’s time We hide away Under the floor And there we wait

Matriarch 04:52
We sailed along the southern shore Dragging our nets collecting debt until they tore Honest and wise the fire came And in the storm god blessed the lord, he took our names Her hands came upon me and pulled me into her chest— My wife now clothed in finest dress with my love calling from here lips The Matriarchs, the kings of these Awaken the axe, await the fix The commune the sorority The smoke that makes us love to love The sky is full of torture And the trees are full of bodies The rope that hangs us from there Are the complements we slept with Let us celebrate its coming
