The mob rejoices The colors hoisted The lines are drawn the nuance gone within the noise Only two choices Either destroys us So pick a side and scream and cry and lose your voice Well didn’t we know better? Didn’t we learn from our mistakes? Didn’t we know not to take the beating with the bait? Incentivized our own deceit Forget intent to steal and cheat Explain away the face of sin The bottom line is that you win And with all the bridges burning Truth is just a brand of learning So cut your teeth on one another Praise your king and hate your brother Anything to justify The empire of the black and white In fraud we trust, divided one E pluribus insaniam This isn’t getting better Enlightenment and reason didn’t save The slow indoctrination of irrational forays If freedom is the only goal Then fear is what we’ve freely sold The bottom line is profit son The bottom line is that you won So cut your teeth on one another Praise your king and hate your brother Anything to justify Empire and the black and white Who can I blame for this? I fear it’s far too tedious If truth doesn’t to pay your bills You put your trust in something else In fraud we trust, divided one E pluribus insaniam Look me in the eye And whisper this is fine Sing me all your lies As long as they’re all lullabies Look me in the face And say that it’s okay This is the only way There is no room for gray Face me like a fear And scream into my ear Until I cannot hear At least the silence, is the only thing that’s clear Cut your teeth on occam’s razor Or be found yourself a traitor Anything to justify Our favorite sins, and sacred lies

Storm 04:56
From their lips they dribble it The water we reserved to spit Our prisons hold what conscience can’t While heavens heave and thirsty pant The water pouring from our skies Will bring salvation and demise The storm will fall on you, the storm will fall on me If mercy falls on everything, I cannot pray it cease Still from my lips your sins won’t purge The drought or rain don’t quench the urge To see the lighting lick the gates And watch the wicked wash away But the fire spreading in my mind Would never stop by my design The storm will fall on you, the storm will fall on me If justice falls on everything, I cannot pray it cease The sun will rise again On my enemy and my friend And I’ve prayed for some to choke But who am I to throw these stones? So storm upon us all

The Eye 01:18
Give me one thing on my mind May the violence and the silence not be intertwined Oh breath and word that I have heard here in this eye Forgive me when I know not what I do I'm still trying

Ouroboros 04:14
Light in basket, shame will bask in On my back is sanctioned basilisk Mephistopheles came through my door He gave me everything I asked him for and then he Cast me into hell and ate the key, I screamed Only to wake and weep at such a dream Ouroboros, eat your heart out please You can't swallow nothing, you can't swallow me Just leave me in the morning, just leave the living be You're biting at your tail; you are your only enemy The snake constricts us, while he hisses: "Your light is fake, it's partial baked And plenty caked with baby weight A little slow to numb the flow Of all the poison I have sown" Are you every part of me I hate? Or are you just a stubborn little snake? Sucking at the heel of my mistakes Will you slip away when I wake? Ouroboros, eat your heart out please You can't swallow nothing, you can't swallow me Just leave me in the morning, just leave the living be You're biting at your tail; you are your only enemy Overcome, so overcome That we might be ourselves That we might greet the dew with eyes like dawn From beyond Every time and place We will tame this strength With fire in our blood

In the light of the neon cross A suit talks up a god that hates your guts The walls are strip malls, and the congregation calls For a blessing big enough to catch their fall In the light of the neon cross The salesmen saddle up for your souls With inerrant paraphrase And the monetary praise There's no way the kingdom's not what they say Oh God won't you rob this den of thieves Oh God overturn the salvation machine In the light of the neon cross A schizophrenic veteran prays To a God he met today In the absence of a saint Behind a tattoo parlor in the rain In the light of the neon cross A crying kid recalls her mother's curse "The things you think you feel Are neither right nor real And your father's house is locked until your sickness is revealed" Oh God won't you rob this den of thieves Oh God overturn this damnation machine Is the great carpenter just another tool That can dance to the tune of any fool The fruit hangs so low from off the tree of security and certainty The Phosphorescent crop of prosperity and piety If by their fruits we should believe I'll take my leave among the weeds And maybe from your buzzing pulpits I can finally find some peace Oh God won't you rob this den of thieves (Is the Great Physician just snake-oil schemes?) Oh God overturn this vindication machine (Or something else entirely?) Oh God won't you rob this den of thieves Oh God overturn this vindication machine

End of my day Clock ticks sideways Stayed in my lane Ignored everything Sun creeping up again Kills all the fun again Time is a rifleman And we are treason Bang tick bang goes the clock goes the gun goes the Bang tick back click it on click it off again Snooze you lose you choose to live again Choose your future 'fore you know Bang tick bang goes the clock goes the gun goes the Bang tick back click it on click it off again Snooze you lose you choose to live again Choose your future 'fore your pillow gets cold Bloodshot headlights Knife to a gunfight Don't go gentle Into this night A shot in the black every morning I'm back In the bed that I made, tell me it's not too late When I hear the long hand pull On the trigger in my skull Bang tick bang goes the clock goes the gun goes the Bang tick back click it on click it off again Snooze you lose you choose to live again Choose your future 'fore you know Bang tick bang goes the clock goes the gun goes the Bang tick back click it on click it off again Snooze you lose you choose to live again Choose your future 'fore your pillow gets cold Retreat defeat, cutback repeat Receipt, you keep, nothing sells cheap Time flies too high, I get tongue tied Can we revive all this wasted time? Bang tick bang goes the clock goes the gun goes the Bang tick back click it on click it off again Snooze you lose you choose to live again Choose your future Bang tick bang goes the clock goes the gun goes the Bang tick back click it on click it off again Snooze you lose you choose to live again Choose your future 'fore your pillow gets cold

Come back around to me But you’ve been there all this time Bring back your balance breathe And our colors intertwine inhale exhale rewind But you’ve been there all this time Breathe in, breathe out be right here With me Just with me Inside out we see Our hearts are fragile things So beat to the braille of reading me And one day these words will sing You are mine (rewind) All this time (rewind)

Shelter 03:41
Give me one thing on my mind And I will let you redefine I will let you reconstruct this shelter I’ll give you pieces of my heart If you will suture up the scars I’m only hoping we can save this shelter Cause, oh, I want to make you a home So come wait through the storm, wait out the war and I will Patch up the holes in this shack of a soul And I’ll blanket your bones in a makeshift chateau And I’ll love you till I’m home Well I’ve been rotten to my core Thought whitewashed walls was all you were looking for But picket fences never made you safer (no they don’t) They just seem to keep you out of reach Like you don’t even want to cross the sorry street of my pride And I wouldn’t blame you if you found another place to lay your mind Cause, oh, I want to make you a home So come wait through the storm, wait out the war and I will Patch up the holes in this shack of a soul And I’ll blanket your bones in a makeshift chateau And I’ll love you till I’m home But it’s so hard to love someone When you’re so scared of giving up, before you even start Behind these walls I’ve boarded up So won’t you knock ‘em down and make it better Oh, I want to make you a home So come wait through the storm, wait out the war and I will Patch up these holes in this shack of a soul And I’ll blanket your bones in a makeshift chateau And I’ll love you till I’m home

Morning 01:38
You’re speaking tongues of darker dreams And I’m Killing souls of who I used to be One morning I awoke to find he drank his fill and choked Push the back of my own mind I’ll never walk if I don’t find my legs Set the sail and loose the ties I’ll never wake if I can’t trust my eyes I just can’t trust myself sometimes
12.
Finger pricked again I woke without a rib I dreamt of love complete And woke to my defeat As the sugar rushes swiftly to my brain It sells me short of pleasure and of pain But I don’t want the lips that drip with honey I need something bitter To wake me from the slumber I am under Lips of vinegar To kiss my skin and make me clean To kiss my sin and make it sting Thicker than my blood Vapor fills my lung Syrupy and slow A taste I wish I’d never known The cancer carves a cradle in my chest And it holds what little love I still have left But something speaks to me where air is sparse That the weight glory in this life is harsh I don’t want the lips that drip with honey I need something bitter To wake me from the slumber I am under Lips of vinegar To kiss my skin and make me clean To kiss my sin and make it sting It seems I lost my Eve for Jezebel It seems I lost my heaven for my hell Oh wake me from this terrifying dream That I became my true love’s enemy
13.
My friend My faithful faceless dream I’m afraid of what I’ve seen Or what I think I need And this road Could never fill the hole To lay my weary bones And know that I was home Engraved in words of gold Silver arrows point me home It’s joy to my surprise That points the way to something more than life My love My sunshine and my blue You always do allude That I don’t understand you But it’s enough To bring me back again To take these tired hands And lead them towards an end Engraved in words of gold Silver arrows point me home It’s joy to my surprise That points the way to something more than life

Start A Fire 03:12
There's a cough in my lungs and coffee in me And a coffin around my days gone by Where is my home now? If I can't find it in a place is it erased? There's a lump in my chest and I'm trying my best To ignore this aching for some rest But where is my heart now If I feel the warm embrace is it safe? Don’t Be afraid to start a fire Don’t be afraid to gather round Know it won’t burn for you forever But we can share the flame we found There's a feild in the fray and feeling weight And a fear of this wilderness of change Oh where is the road now? if I get lost along the way is that okay? you can't reach after refuge in the places you've known Just keep opening hands and hearts and homes Where is the cold now? If we carry the flame let us not be ashamed And don’t Be afraid to start a fire Don’t be afraid to gather round Know it won’t burn for you forever But we can share the flame we found
