Track Name: Wet Suit
there was a boy
he was trapped inside himself
to stay afloat he laid his dreams upon the shelf
spent all his time
trying to breath the murky grime
thrown by the waves into the rocks as he was passing by

a battered wreck
he washed up upon the beach
attention transfixed by the sirens in the sea
another voice
guides him toward an outstretched hand
“take off your wet suit and emerge into the sand.”

because I know the way back home
because I know the way back home

then a great light
cast itself upon the shore
the boy looked down to find the black suit that he wore
as if it knew
it clenched down upon his skin
and though it hurt he had to burst out of his sin
now!

let go!
let me go!
Track Name: Hand Chop Dance Party
going to work
i’ll be digging up graves
‘cause the nation’s state buries ‘em fast now

striking a match
open the hatch
take a chance and let in the light
let in the light

don’t let the man
weapon in hand
keep you from doing what’s right now

throw up those hands to stars and say
ohh?

keeping it pure
meet in the sewer
gonna spread all of the bread of life now

saying our prayers
blood in our hair
screaming Jesus as they plunge in the knife
him and his wife now

blood spilled pollocks the alter and
the angels say oh
Track Name: Fictional Space Tragedy Scenario pt. 1
shortly after history cut the cord
vision filled by oceans i’m falling towards
i can see continents collide

all we are
is dust from the stars
at the end, simple man
convinced i was in charge

vain concerns and worry will burn away
vague illusions of my social grace
feel the heat as i shine like the sun

all we are
is breath and vapor trails
a great exhale, and we will fail
to know what could have prevailed

and i know, i’m sure
it’s all happened before
beneath some snow
far below
the answers unexplored
Track Name: Man in the Snow
man in the snow
did you know this would be your last night?
man in the snow
where’d you go?
you melted in the sunlight

the tallest trees are felling
from the baseline that you’re selling

i’ll take only the way
that dawns with the day
i know, i know all the fear’s trying
to shackle me chained
distorting my brain
i know the old man’s dying

there in the snow
let it go
spill out your heart waist deep
carbon in the skies
atop mountain highs
where my guitar doth weep

a tunguska in the telling
in the hearts that you make your dwelling
