Track Name: invigorateimagination
Bleeding hearts spark
Spit fire make art
We’ve been clinging to a candle
Yet walking in the dark
Pick apart the nothing now
Spread to it, a flame
Invigorate imagination
Set the world ablaze

We’ve been trained to stay tame
But my brains sayin
“ Hey I can’t stay man”
I gotta get away
Bring me back my old days
Breathe deep in lost sleep
Bleed the evening till it fades
And say grace

Walk a line of short sight
Long flights through fortnights
The street greets my feet
As your door creeks old moonlight
They say the pastures greener
Well see when we arrive
I guess there was another side

The archetypes a fight or flight
Id rather talk
These ancient vibrations quake
I feel em going off
Theres a pounding in my head
Like the beating of a drum
Its bleeding out the speaker
Still louder it becomes
“oh no”
She wrote the ocean
“I’ve been known to slow the motion”
So the holy roman omen spoke slow without emotion
Behold the old potion
Expose my own devotion
Your homes an old soul
And it rolls where the wind blows it

Bleeding hearts spark
Spit fire make art
Weve been clinging to a candle
Yet walking in the dark
Pick apart the nothing now
Spread to it, a flame
Invigorate imagination
Set the world ablaze
Track Name: lovemelike
fog is creepin through my window
feels like this old town is sinking in
love me like youll never love another
love me like youll never love again

moonlights nipping at my footsteps
these old bones grown cold and need some rest
love me like youll never love another
love me like youll never love again

daylights bleeding on horizon
i cant help hanging on to what you said
love me like youll never love another
love me like youll never love again
Track Name: aroamer
id like to know (id like to know)
how the days they go so slowly
id like to go (oh is it so?)
and would if i could only
i like to be alone
i find it rather comely
id like to go (oh is it so?)
and would if i could only
i like to be alone
Track Name: ameoba
I wish the itches in my skin would soon desist
As Ive been scratching at my lacking and clawing at my wits
Im hanging on to fading dawn with feeble wrists
We fly in bee lines, grin and eat bliss
Breeze blaze the cliques my knees shake in time
Tremble in surrender yet we say we pay no mind
Yet as the waves berate the beaches we see beauties obsolete
Still we walk in admiration of the earth beneath our feet, like,

I am an amoeba, treat me like a being
Move me like a minuet and tell me that im dreaming
Play me like an instrument, your syndicates are gone
We have nothing left to give, save a vibrant moving on

In a rubix cube question, sequester thought stress
Like, I think id like to see you,
But ill love you none the less
So, stop me if I overstate the beating in my chest
But its bleeding out the speakers so I guess we soon digress…
Track Name: cynderblock
I wish I was a rose on a crown of thorn
its all that I need
all that I need
Cynderblock

I wish I was a bird on wings I’d soar
Its all that I need
All that I need
Cynderblock

I can still remember how the waves they came
It was early in December when the days were gray
We tip toed tightropes and razor blades
Stray to strange places that we can’t escape
Oh Johnny laws off of the job
Chasing old cravings with the drop of a jaw
In a pinprick riddle still you fiddle my brain
Paint me with syringes as you tickle my veins
Lay me Lady Lachrymose (ahhhh)
Ive been stirring in the actions of the passive
In an alley met the holy ghost
Shes been lurking in the rafters of my attic/addict

And all I really have is another god damn
And a sad ass reason to be who I am

My malt liquor moon beam’s a dream weaver
Peter piper picked green cheeba
Now we see speakers bleed
Teachers breathe ether
Walking down the street screaming
“make me a believer”
I was always taught to keep in mind my P’s and Q’s
So I can know when I’m a win and I can see I’m gonna lose
Shes been riding down the highway with a bottle full of blues
Her shoes is on the throttle as they wobble with the booze
The moon beams gleaming as she blew the old fuse
You would have taught me to believe if you had only pulled through
I’ve been wearing out my shoes cuz I been walking on your street
There ain’t nothing like an overdose to help you go to sleep.

Its all that I need
All that I need
Cynderblock

Oh I wish I was a bird

And all I really have is another god damn
And a sad ass reason to be who I am
Track Name: yearandaday
for a year and a day
ive been wishing
for a year and a day
ive been blue
when the sun goes away
and the night comes to stay
i dream that my dreams come true

if my dreams wont come true
tell me, what can i do?

dreams come true

where you going?

for a year and a day without missing
every day like the day just before
if my dreams wont come true
what can i do?

but just wish again
one day...
Track Name: waiting
