Track Name: Wild Type
There are things you want that you just can't get from me. But it's alright. You're not going anywhere. The moon still hangs low and I'm not coming home the night is over. The sun still shines hope. Yeah its light is young, we sleep as one now. There are times that I can't let go with the wind sweeping me from my toes. Oh and it shows. I'm not giving up any time. The way the scenery broke inside your head let my hopes and dreams and wishes lay to rest. Now you'll see what you'll never be.
Track Name: Microsatellite
Out in the dark you'll never win because the dark is full of sin. You'll never notice my shadow watching over you. Standing, dripping inside your fear. Smiling from ear to ear. Standing in the dark dripping in your fear you know your dreams are shattered. You could try but your dreams are shattered. And don't come cry to me because I can't bring you back to life. It would take the weight of a thousand oceans to keep my head from smashing in the street and messing up the scene. I can see the tiny cameras watching you watching me. I can hear the tiny voices threaten you. Threaten me. Out in the dark you'll never win because the dark is full of sin.
Track Name: Downstream
Scene one. You can never ever overcome what you love and what you never ever leave behind. You promised whispered whispers in my ear bleeding everything you fear. Bleeding everything you fear and never hear. You stared right at the sun and that's why it's over and done. Scene two. You could try your whole damn life to carefully undo the lives you never ever tried to use. I promised painted pictures/reasons why your eyes were rippling with the tide. Leaking every day you cried and never tried. I stared right at the sun and that's why it's over and done. This time it's over and done.
Track Name: Painted Bones
The blood flows in like water pooling into your hand. A cryptic understanding of intricacies unplanned. With careful concentration and fear of recognition. (I will dissolve your shadow. Drape it in diamond marrow). You sin for those that you love and abandon your religion. (Life is but quick and careful. Take time to feel your fragile heart). With shaky hands I listened to the steady beat of your heart slow down. Your soul is dim, your breath is soft. The light of your life is burning out. Swimming in contrition, in love with dissolution. (Your dreams hang from the gallows. Desperate, unkempt and shallow). The dark will never leak truth. Your sins will never leave you. (Dreams will delicately die. Breath deep and feel your heart alive). I ran into the hills. Life is but quick and careful. Desperate, unkempt and shallow. Life is but quick and careful. Your dreams hang from the gallows. I ran into the hills.
Track Name: Crystal Embryo
For the first time in your life your eyes are open wide. You're awake on the other side. For the first time in your life your veins are running dry. You're awake on the other side. You're never gonna die. It's all in your head. You're such a delicate man. You're never gonna die. Try as hard as you can but it's the soul that makes the man. Don't give up because the path is paved with gold. Don't give up because your dreams are beautiful. I'll never leave your side as long as i'm alive. I'd do anything for you and no one will know the truth. I would cut you up the middle just to see your bones are brittle. Your eyes won't notice me and you won't feel anything. You're never gonna die. It's all in your head. You're such a delicate man. You're never gonna die. Try as hard as you can but it's the soul that makes the man.
Track Name: Next of Kin
You will never see me pull the strings. With my fingers crossed I promise not to tell. You'll stumble through the year with broken wings. No one will ever notice you. Behind the scenes I envy you. You will never see me pull the strings. You won't know if I don't tell. At first you were as quiet as a mouse. Gripping to my fear you seeped right in. I kept you locked up tight inside the house. I thought I had control of you. I kept you in my field of view. You will never see me pull the strings. You won't know if I don't tell. No one will ever know the truth.
Track Name: Diamond Marrow
It's there when you cry and for sure when you die. It's in your blood stream staring at you. Begging you to lie. I've seen the eyes in the trees/in the sky of everyone else you ever let down standing in disguise. Will it get much worse? I can forgive you. It's such a long time for such a long lie. A long dive to the bottom for painted bones filled with diamond marrow. It's all inside your head: alive and left for dead. You'll never let it die. It's there when you cry and for sure when you die and it's beginning to shake your vision and run your bloodstream dry. And it will drown over time and it will cripple the sight of every dream that will ever love you. It's in the back of your mind whispering.
Track Name: Grey Crescent
Caught between the wind and rain in ephemeral relay. Knee deep in your decay, I laid my head against your grave. Don't make a sound. I'm nowhere to be found. Life's been set up in the distance where the darkness waits forever. You'll reach further but the mist is where your dreams begin and sever. Deeper denser filled with cancer. You'll never find what you've been after. Days begin to blend together and you'll know: Cold truth found you where the night decides you. Caught in currents that will never let you go. The winter dreamers came together and they flew away with my heart. I felt it beat and beat forever. I felt another life start somewhere. Deeper. Dying. Delicately deciding. Don't make a sound, I'm nowhere to be found. Cold truth found you where the night decides you. Caught in currents that will never let you go down. Close your eyes now. Dream of summer wind. Peaceful flowers bloom from rotten skin.
Track Name: Brittle Bones
I open doors of solitude so you can go ahead and walk. I'll take your hand, you take the wheel. You always do. And then it came to me it was right back where it started all along. And then it came to be and it seeped into your mind when you were young. And then it came to me it was right back where it started all along. In my mind i'm free, but my eyes can see the truth that I am young. I'm coming home on my own. And then it came to be: it was right back where it started. I know the truth I am young.
