Track Name: Push
you and i
are the reason
we're alive
every season
changes and so do i
please lend an ear
i know you hear me so listen
my life's on the line
praying in the church of my mind
so will you stay
another day
clean out my brain
your disguise
still haunts me when i lie
your demise
is still imminent in time
please disappear
i do not want to see you
in the way of my life
praying in the church of my mind
so will you stay
another day
clean out my brain
push it away
Track Name: Bear
i sleep in till my dreams pull me into the ground
i fall into the great unknown without a sound my
my teeth hurt
my legs burn
my brains gone awry
control my destiny until the day i die
i don't know
what you told me
the words you said
bought and sold me
my bed is made and i've been sleeping past the sun
my mind is made up i'm forgetting everyone
you bend me
you break me
you throw me aside
chew on the rest of me until the day i die
i don't know
what you told me
the words you said
bought and sold me
prove me wrong
prove me dead
move my adolescent bones
fix my mind
kick my head
just stop leaving me alone
i need to feel
i need to heal
i need to mend myself and no
i won't quit
so just forget it
you'll never get me to regret
and that's all i am to you
i sing your song
and that's all you are to me so sing along
you are so understanding and i need you to hear
every weight i shuck is now for you to bear
Track Name: Light
i was standing in the yard
while you talked to me
fingers in the mud
let you conquer me
everything i was
everything you are
unbelievable to sight
so i had to touch
i don't know what's right
but i know it's rough
everytihng i know
covered up with blush
the spirits and i how we dance around
once i was lost, lord but now i'm found
nothing that they say can keep me down
now that i've found the light
i was playing in the mud
but you made me clean
punching through the wall
what it meant to me
always on my guard
never feel relief
screaming at the sky
all it did was rain
tryna feel the joy
through the woods of pain
now my bones are shook
now my mind is changed
the spirits and i how we dance around
once i was lost, lord but now i'm found
nothing that they say can keep me down
now that i've found the light
Track Name: Forgive
i was wading in the water
staying afloat another day
i was watching as the time passed by
there was nothing i could say
there was nothing that i could do
there was no one i could be
so i twiddled my thumbs and waiting
for death to carry me

what a life
if you think you've seen all that there is
take the knife
and cut away all that you don't forgive

i was reading on the origins of
man and how we live
i was thinking that i wish i was
the creator of all there is
there are no pairs of shoes
that i would rather use than mine
so i buried my fantasies
somewhere you'll never find

what a life
if you think you've seen all that there is
take the knife
and cut away what you don't forgive
Track Name: Yours
SLEEPING IN THE CENTER OF THE SKY
DOING WHAT I GOTTA TILL I DIE
SAID I'D NEVER LEAVE YOU BUT I LIED
EXIT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE RIDE

YOU COULD BE SPACE
AND I COULD BE TIME

VANDALIZING SIDEWALKS CUZ I'M BORED
SLEEPING IN THE MIDDLE OF THE STORE
TELL HER I JUST NEED A LITTLE MORE
EVERY WAKING MOMENT IS A CHORE

YOU COULD BE MINE
AND I COULD BE YOURS

TALKING TO MY DEMONS ON THE PHONE
HATE THE DARK AND HATE TO BE ALONE
HAPPY ACCIDENTS BEAUSE I'M PRONE
SPIRIT BUBBLING UP I HEAR IT GROAN
Track Name: Ember
open up my eyes and let it enter me
for the times i wasted all away
hold my center close and wash away with it again
even with the wounding i'm okay
you find me smoldering
pick up the ember and disperse
remind me that im whole again
regeneration follows hurt
i answered the call and got the message then hung up
i did not recieve a single word
in my inability to draw a line between
what is all too real and what's absurd
you find me smoldering
pick up the ember and disperse
remind me that im whole again
regeneration follows hurt
open up my eyes and let it enter me
for the times i wasted all away
hold my center close and wash away with it again
even with the wounding i'm okay
open up my mind and let it comfort me
remind me of the days i was alive
keep your satin sheets and linen closets for yourself
you can take it with you when you die
Track Name: Despair
ever since i was born
you could find me in despair
while the stereo played out sonic youth
i cut my hair
i was screaming internally but nothing could compare
to your warmth and your elegance
i didn't even care
fuck me
tuck me
suck me
blow my brains away
kill me
thrill me
bill me
you'll get back your pay
crush me
stuff me
touch me
girl i feel so sick
snap me
grab me
have at me
cuz i don't give a shit
i'll admit i was torn
between viture and some vice
i was using a flamethrower
and skating on thin ice
disposition has changed
i am no longer such a creep
i wake up with the sun
no longer feel the need to sleep
Track Name: Crime
talk about the old days
while i sit
and decide
something about always
while you wait
and you hide
i was on a journey
then i tripped
and i fell
wake up with the morning
while you dance
do it well

i wasted time on you
i spent my energy to pawn you
i did the crime i'll stay
however long it takes

equilibrium found
now i walk on this rope
swallow all my pride
look to the source of my hope
swimming with the dolphins
in the depths of the sea
look me in my eyes when
you're talking to me
Track Name: Unclean
speak so serene
and wander through the streets
how much art can you take
hang out in my dreams
a lover far in the sheets
the line that was drawn is unclean

fun attempted once again
fun as it can be
spend my life against the sand
pulled into the great deep

no one is my enemy
breaking my stability
walk away from it with me

days upon days
rock eroded away
revealing my salvation
deep in the mind
i pulled out my divine
intelligence running the races
speak so serene
and wander through the streets
how much art can you take
hang out in my dreams
a lover far in the sheets
the line that was drawn is unclean
Track Name: Well
them
and me
swinging on the forrests trees
i want to be
along with you for everything
i told myself
i'd have to do this fucking well
i told you too
about everything that i do

in the midst of it all
i listen for the call
i stand up once i fall
this blueprint that i draw

i walk
you run
i shiver at the sound of guns
i swim
you sink
happiness is what you think
i fold, i melt
i reconfigure by myself
i told you too
