Track Name: "Boy Mumble"
I became the quiet one
I became the waiter
But, what have I been waiting on?
The fucking calvary to save me?
Perhaps the good lord to rearrange me.

I’m staring out the tallest windows
With the hungriest of eyes
How could something so attainable, elude me everyday and every night??

I don’t need you anymore
Don’t need you anymore
Track Name: "American Fashion"
We know the cost                                            
We reek of boasts
Good men get  (cut) down
Bad men become television hosts

It’s all in a days work
And we know it so well

It’s
American Fashion

We stay up all night
We pay the price
To ship in or ship out
Pray to the Devil or pray to the Christ
We walk into flames and no one complains!

It’s 
American Fashion

What have they done to you?
You’re bleeding-out
In slow motion.

THAT’S
AMERICAN FASHION

We know the cost
We reek of boast’s
Ship in or ship out
Pray to a devil or pray to a GHOST
WE walk INTO FLAMES AND no one COMPLAINS!!
THAT’S

AMERICAN FASHION!!
Track Name: "Gone,Gone,Gone"
You prey for rain, here comes the rain and now you’re drowning in it

Your Tarot cards, your false alarms, terror is what you make of it

You find the chords, you find the words
The song is born

You raise the child, you make it smile
Just for a little while

and then it’s Gone,Gone,Gone
Gone,Gone,Gone
Track Name: "Call for Cull"
There was a call for cull
Felt damage near the band and feather
Bloody gums, bloody palms
We drink a handle just to keep it together

There’s a hollowness when
You’re in line for this

Spider-silk in the leaves
Spring’s here
Can you predict the weather
Broken keys, broken teeth
Tine’s bent, we’re not in tune with each other
There’s a hollowness when…
Your number’s called and then you ask..

Will anyone save me in time??
Will any one save me in time??
Track Name: "A Loupe"
Records on the floor
We have to stop but we drink more
On paper it smears
It’s not conjunctional

Our prey comes near
Every night we take em’ down
And in the morning
Regret so much
Marching in thick mud

I’m trying to evolve
And you’re no sleuth
Caterpillar to a moth
You fly into the fire

Blazing-bright and doomed
It dies and you’re consumed


I wanted to have a home
I likened our love to a prose

Eloquent and crazed
Cold Winters & Summer Haze

A moth to a flame
Bartenders are asleep by now my dove
Track Name: "Strange Bouys"
It won’t stop
Cause’ no one has a pair
To draw the swords
To plow the fields and stare into it’s eyes
I can see it
want’s me for a prize
& I will exploit that.

It won’t stop
Cause’ no one really cares
They climb up oak and fall asleep while wolves draw near
The pack must survive
Their blood-thirsty and freezing
The pack must survive
& survival means feeding

Strange Buoys gravitate toward us because they want what’s mine
I know you’re moving so slow, yet growing in size✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨✨
Track Name: "Black Ambulance"
BLACK AMBULANCE
Track Name: "Two Talons"
It cuts like the knife
the truth of our lives
perhaps we don’t push hard enough for a better hand
Earth is a field and we’re mice
Two talons open twice
We’ve got to run just as fast as we can
Just as fast as we can

Let’s be honest and wise
Forever thinking twice
U couldn’t ask for a better plan
Earth is field and we’re mice
Two talons open twice
We’ve got to push more than we ever have
Push as hard as we can
Just run as fast as we can

Babe, I know we’re dying
& I know we’re trying to make up for those moments we really fucked up in the past.

Babe, I know we’re dying
& I know we’re trying to make up for those moments …

And, run as fast as we can
Run as fast as we can…….
Track Name: "Missing People"
Missing people, missing people

Plucked from their path..
By the dark and evil
Missing people

Margaret I still miss you
I want to hold and kiss you
I never wanted you to pass alone
But, It’s the one true thing…
we all know
Missing People.
