01. Scapegoat

I hear the ravens calling to you
Oh soulless creature violent death
Scapegoated, blame laid upon me
I'll be damned to take what's left
The root of the problem
Has been buried too deep
By the time you get to it
Problems will have surpassed the end
Dig them up
Or let the pendulum swing
I put my hand to your heart
And let the bullet burn your blood
You seem to me death incarnate
Raper of life, killer of love


02. Insomnia For Months

There is no choice
Crash into mirrors
Visions in the pieces
Comprise a whole picture
Energy is cheating
Insomnia for months
There is no choice
Cannot count fingers
Multitude of memories
Left in a stupor
Sobriety out of boredom
Insomnia for months
Structure was never solid
I built it earthworn


03. Said And Done

As these old days rust
And new ones come
It's said and done
As these days fade away
And new ones sway
It's all been done
Falling towards gravity's end
As these days stay still
And some of them kill
It's said and done
This new dawn is callous
This time is not for us
Bring forth forever silent tongues
End of day, wake of dawn
This time it's not calling
Our numbers they are falling
Bring forth forever silent tongues


04. Unknown Awareness

Seeds of scorn are planted
Tribulations are hanging
Humiliation congeals
Minutes stutter unknown awareness
Nonviolence that is nefarious
Forbidden hunger, age is hunting
Inhumane encounters
Minutes stutter unknown awareness


05. Running Red

This time we are certain
A cloud draws color running red
I'll bury my hands in black water
Undercover where they've bled
Oh reconcile these actions
In tune and unaware
Where is my matchmaker
Tell me how you live your life
Cold cool flesh killing night
Without warm light becoming nothing
I watch the falling embers beckon
Come inside, come to me
Unaware of this growing tension
The stillness quips at your retreat
Where is my matchmaker
Tell me how you live your life
Cold cool flesh killing night
Without warm light becoming nothing
Oh reconcile these actions
Covet it's murk and bleak relief
Casting fuel into the fire
In it we find the truth we seek


06. Nature's Predators

Streets lined with blood
Sleep no longer rests
Try to tune it out
This is no love generation
This is the town I live in
It is an American tension
Nature's predators live through death
Your neighbor killed big brother
Dim away the world
Whitewashed away
Waking symbols rest
Human interest repressed
We are not victims
We are someone's enemy
We all have to blame someone
Because fault is never personal
This is the town I live in
It is an American tension
Nature's predators live through death
Your neighbor killed big brother


07. Almost Lost

Immersed in confusion
Drag out this unwillingly
This soundwave is paused
Uneducated adornment
Agenda of truth
It is a lie
There is none
Fact or fiction
In between
We want to build
An explanation of contradiction
Spinning wheels
Unwelcome home
Do not smile
It's not prescribed
Momentary hallucination
Well adjusted
The new insane


08. Only One

Locked into moments seen through and through
Like darkness shining on you revealing and weeping
I try to
Try to see things through and through
As darkness cloaks the sun I seem the only one
Brick anchors in wet sand
Carry through tomorrow's end
Lines of life carving hands
Clear the patch, claim the land


09. Perception

Years of thought trapped inside
An unstable judgement
Perception of severity
Insidious eye
Without sight
Crossing wires
Perception of severity
We are together never alone
Some other time
Place my hand unto you
Feel no shame
Hover and suffer
Over one
Lost ending soul
One reason to fall
Is to rise
Break down, break down
One false move
Everything changes
No second chance


10. To Walk Alone

Thought not to walk alone here
Where all things die
Witness the sameness of will
Where all men cry
Farther and farther away
Into long ago
Soft yellow halo inside
Keeps me alive
My own reflection subsides
When I look to you
Written and noted by none
Fade out into
I drift farther away
Into long ago
Witness your hollowing eyes
Find time to die
Long ago
Fade too slow
Fall to life
Motion go
