Track Name: Get In
lying in a dust cloud, praying that I'm never found
how can you tell that things are going to be different now and eternally for me?
- I want to feel frail, waking up today
and without worry I'm stripped and free sleeping on the ground don't make a sound
when it's not and it's not and i'm not the same thing
(how can you tell?)
but even if your heart melts good, you've got mine
and you know it could…
late to pace the bases as the sun sits low
squint and see it settle in your afterglow
rush to be recovered not ashamed, but know
i want it all by my design
and you told me first that your first was worse
so grab that gorgeous arrow from your side and wait
for all consumed adoration to feel faintly
oh unlit-candle can we wipe-the-slate,
and do it all by my mine?
so strain that wicked liquid from the blood that flows
out from every angle but your mouth that's closed
sealing in your buried-worries
none exposed
I am it all by mine
Track Name: Your Move
I am a sorry type
lost in the business parks
live where you want to die
even in some dangerous love-in
that you'll falter
in your terrible mistakes

It was a dream
when you
came back to me
lying on the couch like
the useless hope
you said there was nothing better than feeling so solo

And now as I'm standing, blown by the eavesdropped-news that you had
not to spread
I can at once regret that a truth may set you free but know: you're never gonna be
and that's what I need to be
Track Name: When You Can't Beat The Dream
this little life alone
I've been longing for, off the register
you won't suppose, be rid your valiant seed
and the fractured reflection you lose

when you can't beat the dream
I'm like don't
you think you'd rather wait to go?
I think I'd rather take too long
that means like
writing on the edges of the counter and
counting up the minutes left of light and
lighting all four candles like some altar and
altering the angles so we might
feel mighty like the power that you spoke of
when even speaking couldn't get it right

am I that prone to lie?
Track Name: Nightcloak
wait until the night
peeking through the keyholes
and you're bound to find out
that now it's done - and the black oh it lingers
and my weak IQ points rise
Me - I am Not alive
we - we've been alright
pls give me worth tonight
out on your own
it starts to hurt a lot
say that you've been hidden - and right away:
now I'm afraid for way too long
and every burning-burden in the place
could know my name and call me out on

saying something obvious/acting too oblivious
you know, the type of crime you can commit
and thenconvinced you re-commit (out of spite?)
no, in an effort to evade/avoid mistakes you have made
curse the moment let it fade
so please accept: the old grey smoke you breathe out
you'll leave just as it does
and please exempt your body's frail commitment
from your own critiques

but now I'm feeling simple
