Track Name: Clarity
another port of call
weathered by the storm of the old
dim the lights of eyes contained
within this audience
clarity carried out in the distance
as we carry the word
just take a bite and go on thru the falsities and the textural truths
carry the word
follow the signs and forge a way forward
Track Name: Take this soul
layered on these sins are growing old
and beginning to feel like a second skin
take this soul
forever is just another reason
to join the hordes of heathens
smiling from dusk till dawn
take this soul
pseudo sacrifice for empty promises
you can have what's left of my conscious when im done with this shell
take this soul
Track Name: The dead hand of plato
just how much has reason
got to say in our thinking
one foot will follow the other
until we're all trampled under
we are firing holes in the sand
transparent is the order
to overwhelm the author
we are firing holes in the sand
i cant replace this silicone emotion
i cant replace forgotten but not alone
i cant replace and find a normal reaction
i cant replace stretched out and covering
buried in with barbed intent are the thoughts
we carried over
to overwhelm the author
we are firing holes in the sand
i cant replace this silicone emotion
i cant replace forgotten but not alone
i cant replace and find a normal reaction
i cant replace stretched out and covering
Track Name: Moving mountains
grey paints the colour of confusion
in the absence of all safehouses
why can't we just surrender
why can't we just let it go
why can't we just surrender
why can't we just let it go
swamped in normality
and this new found fear
why can't we just surrender
why can't we just let it go
why can't we just surrender
why can't we just let it go
this new ground is where we all will lie
im moving heaven to see im moving mountains to breathe
why cant we
surrender
Track Name: Momentum
you think you know what you want
but you've come here covered
in every respect it's buried you from your heart
can we move past pretend
i know you're in there
so shed your skin and take a swing get accustomed to this conversation
there's no digging your toes in
can we move past pretend
i know you're in there
if you want it it can't deny you
shot down with momentum
so throw it aside and hold up your chin
can't you see you're struggling to wait
if you want it it can't deny you
shot down with momentum
if you want it it can't deny you
if you want it it can't deny you
shot down with momentum
Track Name: Cider of pear
smoke surveys from above
a bystander supplying cover
sights open
sights open
patchwork carousels
threading indifference
mismatching ideals
folding into the land
sights open
sights open (yeah)
shield your eyes
this is not your saviour
as the smoke surveys
from above
sight open pheromones in action
sight open pheromones in action
sight open pheromones in action
sight open pheromones in action
sights open
sights open (yeah)
Track Name: Manacles
rip me up and displace the earth
a deciduous dawn to awaken
this tympanic tourniquet
has twisted our hope
a scattered sea of manacles are harbouring
into this friction filled decent
collapsing corneas caught in disarray
iconoclastic structures lost in transparency
this tympanic tourniquet
has twisted our hope
a disjointed sobriety is calling me
calling me
a scattered sea of manacles are harbouring
into this friction filled decent
Track Name: Six degrees
has this reflection dulled to an imperfection
why cant we be more than simple
so in this darkened everlasting vigil
why cant there be comfort in these medicated thoughts
so take these assiduous dreams of awake
and wash them down with whatever it takes
to dissolve all of which keeps up sane
push us ahead
so take these assiduous dreams of awake
and wash them down with whatever it takes
to dissolve all of which keeps up sane
push us ahead
so in this darkened everlasting vigil
why cant there be comfort in these medicated thoughts
an illusion of simple solutions to keep us all
thinking we're one and the same
so take these assiduous dreams of awake
and wash them down with whatever it takes
to dissolve all of which keeps up sane
push us ahead
so take these assiduous dreams of awake
and wash them down with whatever it takes
to dissolve all of which keeps up sane
with every thought a corrosive conscious contorting all that was
to stimulate the pain into perpetuality
it's only in grief we find ourselves sustained
so take these assiduous dreams of awake
and wash them down with whatever it takes
to dissolve all of which keeps up sane
push us ahead
Track Name: Duck your head
Save your thoughts for the crystal little man
the push pull of supply and demand
whittle away all that you hold
finite source to shape and curse your soul
duck your head and forage away
this potential pothole is filled
with damaged goods and broken good will
sacrificing yourself to get ahead
to be stuck in conversations locked in your head
duck your head and forage away
the spirit of hope will hang
the existence and formation of a man
in the balance it does hold
given a truth creation of a soul
becoming lost in sea of silhouettes
simplified to erase a cause for regret
defined by the line made to corrode
all actions derived by selfish modes
duck your head and forage away
duck your head and go
Track Name: One sided decisions
as much as i feel i need this i know it would be too much
to hold truth below and under the skin
and to lead us from immature beginnings
one sided decisions
use your words
choking on
bitterness and regret
washed down with the fragile hands that seem to know the way
inside this selfish hate
as much as i feel i need this i know it would be too much
to hold truth below and under the skin
use your words
choking on
bitterness and regret
washed down with the fragile hands that seem to know the way
inside this selfish hate
