Track Name: HAUNTED HIGHWAYS
Highway Highways

Highway
mainline
downtown train

downtown
north side
redline

dead sex
abscess
flatline

C

draw back
dead rose
cat black

dead night
highway
no lights

sleep walk
no light
endless twilight
ceaseless midnight

C
haunted highways
strapped to my wrist
filthy money in my fist
summer’s got the best of me
winter’s got what’s left
Track Name: THE PRICE OF FLESH
the price of flesh

It’s hanging in the window
It’s hanging from the trees
the price of flesh is falling
falling to it’s knees

cigarettes and chocolate
chocolate and cyanide
cherry red outside
and cherry red inside

a soldier’s kiss
the lovers disease
the price of flesh is falling
falling to it’s knees

the war came between my cherry red lips
cigarettes and chocolate on my breath
red is the color of lust
and red is the color of death
red is the only color I have left

I am sold by the pound
yes I am sold by the pound
while there’s still smoke on the breeze
the price of flesh is falling
it’s falling to it’s knees
Track Name: DEPTH DRUNK
Depth Drunk

I go to the bottom
And never come up X
I’m depth drunk X

I never want to come up X
Cause I’m depth drunk

Down in the cold, and the silt, and the muck
I never want to come up X

Breath is a luxury I just can’t afford
Not anymore X

I go down to the bottom and never come up X
I’m depth drunk
Track Name: ENTANGLEMENT
Entanglement

entanglement
when you move
I move with you
entangled
we turn in counter motion
this entanglement
these actions at a distance
this counter motion
I turn to you and you can only turn away
over infinite space
you can only turn away
these actions at a distance
we are in action
a million miles away
but I still move with you
but I always move away
Track Name: CALL DOWN THE MOON
Call down the moon

I‘ll be calling down the moon
I’ll be aching with the tide
the sea will be sick
and I’ll be sick with it
this tide might break me
the moon might make me a monolith
the tune that I’ll be whistling
is the song I’ve been missing all my life

chorus
It’s coming soon
cause I’m going out now
to call down the moon

I’ll be calling down the moon
I’ll be pulling down the curtain of the night
the luminous pricks
that dot the drape
are just stains that cast light
the tide might break me
and the tide might take me out to sea

chorus

If I go down I’ll bring down
the moon
and the ocean will bloom into flowers
whose petals drown drown cities
whose thorns pierce the flesh
of the pale hand of man
and draw hot tears from the punctures

chorus

I might be stripped of my countenance and aspect
but I’d gladly tear my stitches out
just to be ground out, and drowned out, and drug out to sea

chorus
Track Name: CASCADE EFFECT
CASCADE

They all fall
Fall in a row
Cascade

The white noise
Of waterfalls
Spilling from wrists
A cold clear cascade

This collapse
Displaces breath and hope
Imparts strength and determination

All you’ve possessed drowns
Along with your fear
You fall
You fall
You fall
You cascade

Strength in action
Breeds strength
You and your brothers
Who are blind to each other
Cascade

The arc you have become
Rests on struts of will, and strength, and inspiration
We all cascade
We all cascade
We are strong together
We have fought, and we are free
Our memory may be bleached with cowardice
But they are prisoners, and we are free

Just one had the courage, and showed us the way
We thank him, for now we cascade
Track Name: HEART MADE HELL
Heart made hell

my heart is named hell
my bed is called hell
my heart is made hell
by your lips
your kiss
your touch
I am flush
with the heat from a heart made hell
I go to the cold
but I burn up the ice
my words are turning back to screams
I am turning back to awful dreams
I am turning back to cum and egg
Just a mistake with wings
you warm your hands by the heat, and the fire of a heart made hell`
Track Name: BEAST TAKES A BITE
Beast takes a bite

Beast takes a bite
And these wounds keep me pinned
To this body of spite
Keep me pinned to this weak frame
This weak frame of mind

I stare at the light
To punch holes in the night
And the beast takes a bite

I’m pinned to these words
Just as I’m pinned to this blight
This blight of body of mind
I’m stitched to this rind
Keep me stitched to this rind
God keep me stitched to this rind
Keep me stitched to this skin
Keep me safe from this night
That’s just the color of bright white light
Let the beast take his bite

Let these wounds bleed the light
Let these wounds bleed the light
Let these wounds weep out the light
Let these wounds weep out the night
