Track Name: Turning
Running through the wheels that turn awry
The tap will run you dry
The thirst that keeps you up all night
Into the doggone daze

Indolent writhing body mass
The sea is far too wide
I caught a fish and threw it back
Was that a fish at all

I never smelled the salty brine
I never felt its scales on mine
I never bled into the line
I watched the waves 'til time resigned

Who's counting all your piled slats?
You add a log and light the match
But rain keeps falling on your hat
Drinks in your head and you float
Track Name: All Lies In
To be the venting sentience
To be the salt lake sinking in
To wash away the blue with acids
To see the murky water's refraction

All lies in
Feel your skin
All lies in

To be the vital nutrients
To be the light that stings the eyelids
To hear the birds that sing in silence
To feel the magnum ultraviolence

All lies in
All lies in

Feel your skin
All lies in
Track Name: I Stopped You
I stopped you in the street
Among the swarm of bees
I watched you there dancing
The wind sang from the trees
You brought me to my knees
I begged you baby please don't leave

Back when I was younger
A soft light from within
Broke off, asunder
Underneath my skin

A wild beast strung out
On the wilderness
And then, at sundown,
Caught a lucid glimpse
Of the swarm now
Buzzing in my head
And through the soft light

I stopped you in the street
Among the swarm of bees
I watched you there dancing
The wind sang from the trees
You brought me to my knees
I begged you baby please
I caught you in my dreams
A shame you had to leave

Through the soft light
Everything was green
With brown of fall nigh
Track Name: Dirty Laundry
The corner of a naked room
Piled high, the plastic stain ballooned
A worthy cause of wrinkled sleeves
Tomorrow is born in soiled handcuffs
Washing my hands 'til rusty
Sinking to swim forever upstream

Where is the hump of higher love?
And still I wonder if I could watch them fuck from above
So many solvents in the dream
Sometimes I wanna dissolve myself in all of them
Sick of this dirty laundry
Off in the corner always calling

Don't wake up
'cuz I won't try to see the iris in your eye, nascent
Another day and I will see the flagrant sun rising

Spent my whole life trying to clean
And in that time I've turned my room out
And I've seen all the eye can see
Except for the things that stand inside me
As all the horns outside ring
I'm reading the book without its binding

Don't wake up
'cuz I won't try to see the iris in your eye, nascent
Another day and I will see the flagrant sun rising
Track Name: Sitting on the Rooftop
Sitting on the rooftop and I, and I
Sitting on the rooftop and I can't sing
A note before it can ring
And what if I would die?

Sitting on the rooftop a violet sky
All the clouds are bright and the air is dry
And faced with an iron plight
I wonder if I could climb
To your bedside

Standing on the rooftop I'm by your side
Counting all the dew drops between your eyes
And hoping they'll never dry
I'm caught in a fly-by-night
The towering scattered lines
So listlessly calcified
Track Name: Here #2
Sure feels good to be here in your arms
Sure feels good to be here
Sure feels good to be here in your arms
Sure feels good to be here

Sure feels good to be here in your arms
Take my time to be here
Sure feels good to be here in your arms
Take my time to be here
Here in your arms
Sure feels good to be here
Track Name: Today
Yes, no, yes
Go on loving

Separated berated by the fadedness I anticipated
Gone get it a fellated belated renovated
Wakin' and bakin' I ain't make it today and
Track Name: Burnt Rubber
Standing pointlessly and pointed in the other
Not another
Was anointed but sits under covers
Away from others
Disappointment in the undiscovered
Never duller
The radiation leaves the drying leaflets colored
Discolored

So what's the point of making inroads if they end in burnt rubber?
I'm tired of hiding in the fire of the burning curvature

The mask it makes your face look so fucked up
Tough luck
The adulation you received, enough,
Never enough
But now you're pointed in the direction of the other
Not another
Your voice it creaks and radiates the wrong colors
All the colors

So what's the point of making inroads if they end in burnt rubber?
I'm tired of hiding in the fire of the burning curvature

Someday, I'll be floating free
In an infinite space
Where you want me to be, hopefully
Where will we be?
Track Name: Blank
Who needs such a distant choke?
Fading so faithfully into a blank
What gave in to be revoked?
Something to hide beneath, invisible

Set up, looking in, through the crown
To make a way around
What's left there to do?
Feeling new every time I rise the same

You give everything you've got
Sometimes I'm losing sleep sitting down
Why be such an island when
You're surrounded by the sea in which to drown?

Set up, looking in, through the crown
To make a way around
What's left there to do?
Feeling new every time I rise the same
