Track Name: Horse and Whales
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.
Track Name: RXNLA
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?
Track Name: Heavy Metal Thunder
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.
Track Name: Caveshare
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?
Track Name: Sand Dance
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.
Track Name: Cat Calls
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.
Track Name: Birthday Rats
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.
Track Name: Nickelodeon Dreams
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
Track Name: Matriarch
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
