Track Name: Dedication
I know what you’ve always known
I know where you’ve always been
I walked this path with you and
I’ve been that one true friend

Time flies and the road and changed
It was never far from my view
Your eyes turned from love into hate
And turned me from hero to fool


I’m not running away
I am still right here
I have never swayed
You have nothing left to fear


Last night you called me up
And said that your soul has died
And you want the rest to go with it
Gun in hand, you started to cry

Must have been at least five hours
We shared every memory
Of the life we knew before us
Now you know what I could see


I’m not running away
I am still right here
I have never swayed
You have nothing left to fear


Don’t close your eyes
Don’t say goodnight
Don’t say it’s a means to an end
Don’t say you’ve lost your light
Track Name: Diet Coke and Thorazine
Cigarettes and caffeine
Diet Coke and thorazine
Double shots of whiskey
Graduate to morphine
Pining for an old dream
This is not a new scene
Nor is it a smoke screen
Falling into routine


I can’t tell you
What’s on my mind now
It’s all on you
To find out how
You only got one
Chance to do this
Why spend all of it
Inside your abyss


Pissing off your old friends
Starting of the descent
No more time to pretend
No more room to offend
No more lives to upend
No more friendships to mend
No more goodwill to spend
You’re constructing your own end


I can’t tell you
What’s on my mind now
It’s all on you
To find out how
You only got one
Chance to do this
Why spend all of it
Inside your abyss
Track Name: This Present Tense
It’s hard to think when the noise is all around
But easy to prey on souls who can’t decide
No one will know how to find the answers
When every fact is false-identified

Don’t you think the world is pre-determined
Won’t we know the source of all our pride
This head and heart is what we all live for
It’s up to us to see what we have inside


This present tense
No recompense
Spare all judgements
If it kills us


Followed through on the things that we were promised
Did you know that a single person lied
Starting over is not what we intended
Time to work on this thing from all sides
We’re only hoping that this effort is for something
Adversity will always be defied


This present tense
No recompense
Spare all judgements
If it kills us
In self-defense
This present tense
No false presence
If it kills us


This present tense
No recompense
Spare all judgements
If it kills us
In self-defense
This present tense
No false presence
If it kills us
In consequence
It will make sense
This present tense
If it kills us
Track Name: Sandcastle
Smoldering morning tide
Tar black'ning winter's white
Praise to the second sunrise
Wash over he who denies


Lost links in your brains
Splice into frame
Dear child down the wire
Sandcastle's fire


Breath for a truthful seer
Death to a truthful fear
Blood turns to thaw in the sun
Bones grab their keys and run
Track Name: Throatless
Reach out to me now
And tell me what you need
I promise I will listen
To everything you see
Start with the basics
Then get complicated
End with your misfortune
And every frustration


But keep it in the past
It’s gonna stay that way
Look into the future
It won’t happen again


You’ll want to scream
But your throat will go dry
Your limbs will be numb
And you won’t know why
Just take a moment
To think how much you could do
If you’d just spare a thought
About anyone but you


But keep it in the past
It’s gonna stay that way
Look into the future
It won’t happen again
Track Name: Ballad of the Sylvan Doge
Calling at the door
A strange sister implores
"Collections for the poor?"
Words swallowed whole by gold decor


Ready the knight to sink his jaw


Did something fin'lly knock through
Your heirloom chest of oakwood?
The little ones, under your
Big hands, still shaking your core?

Heroic pups continue
Star eyed with breath saved for you
To leave their trust in your bowl
Your dismal lunch to feel whole


Cry not for your friend
His loyalty will lend
Burning through the end
Brightening your furnace well


Got your fur caught in knots this time
Counting the rings until we die
Track Name: Millicent
On this Prague Summer night there’s no sun in the sky
As dusk settles in and I again close my eyes
I didn’t think that I’d wake up today
That last night she’d finally taken it all away


What I feel at the turn of the screw
This dichotomy with which I’m imbued
I looked in the mirror and she wasn’t there
But I felt her fingers creep through my hair


You drink this wine
To stay alive
Millicent
I’d do anything for you


I spoke my truth and then she just sighed
She opened me up, I gave her my insides
I looked to her face but in the dark couldn’t see
I’ve only her freezing hands to guide me


I can’t recover, no, because I’ve crossed that line
I cannot live unless I know that she’s mine
Or more to the point, that I am hers
Call it devotion because it’s not a curse


You drink this wine
To stay alive
Millicent
I’d do anything for you
Track Name: An Orange
Word on the street says
You're an orange
Without a single friend to rhyme

Skulking through stanzas
Miles from our minds
Before the ink was even dry


We'll hear you sing those
Old clichés (about)
Your "flesh so sweet under the rind"

Bore us with tales of
Borrowed ennui (truest)
Horror of yourself yet to find


Rotting away
Track Name: The Twilight Shadows
All in the sea
By this coast and mountains
All we can see
Is ours for the taking


And we want you


As we march to shore,
Holding tight,
The twilight shadows
Cover us


All we can see
Is ours for the taking


And we want you


As we march to shore,
Holding tight,
The twilight shadows
Cover us
We’ve almost got you
Where we want you
But daylight’s breaking
Over us


As we turn to stone
We turn to stone

We turn to stone
