Track Name: Red Heat
engulfed by your intentions
voices of theft and certainty
it's a secret to me how you
keep all your dreams onto
the cindered planks, weathered by the years

and don't speak loud he can hear you
his breath composed of ash and flame
the thoughts and lost shrieks in the distance
the shadows grip around the brimstone walls

i'm missing out, can't hear one single sound
what it gives is a mystery
i was waiting, by the broken lantern
the chain link fence drips with chemicals

tell me, all your secrets
let me know, ring them out
needlessly reminding, digging deep and finding
the asbestos lining in the truth
Track Name: Pearl Moon
same place
same time
no light
no shine
repeat it
i had it
i want it
i need it
continue the courage
push all behind you
start now, give your all
of everything

i will clutch you underneath the pearl moon
i will clutch you underneath the pearl moon
i will clutch you underneath the pearl moon
i will clutch you underneath the pearl moon

all face
no smile
no sun
no style
it all seems familiar
it all seems inferior
destroy all
destroy skies
the skies come
the skies die
I CAN'T BE YOU
CAN YOU, BE ME?

i will clutch you underneath the pearl moon
i will clutch you underneath the pearl moon
i will clutch you underneath the pearl moon
i will clutch you underneath the pearl moon
Track Name: Diesel
around and around
and all around you
instantly it falls
and the feeling isn't true

it's a diesel burn
and it's tearing at my face
gotta gotta tell you
it's a lovely time to waste

love in the freeway
shifting overweight with miles
trust me it will change
as you hold it rank and file

love is a heartache
and it cuts into your skin
gotta gotta tell you
it's a horrible state i'm in

it's a faint condition
weighed in every connotation
the youth of the culture
faith, and consistence

gone is the hope
as you it deep inside
choke me choke me choke
while you hold it deep inside

cindered metal crashing
flying in-between in the lanes
gotta gotta tell you
it's a horrible mess i'm in

as they tell you it's right
but the truth foams out with lies
clutch me clutch me clutch me
as you

spinning in the freeway
crashing in-between the lanes
gotta gotta tell you
of the horrible shape i'm in

and thinking in motion
is the object in question
fate and conditions
avocation to disaster

don't let me go
you let me go
you let me go
walk a strange line
HOW VERY STRANGE INDEED!

as around and around
and all around you
it's a diesel burn
and i don't know what to do
Track Name: Chew Z
i live on the house
that overlooks the hill
used to be alive
it felt so real

slow down!
this race means nothing
it's such a shame
the way you sneer

used to be alive
it felt so real
used to be alive
it felt alright

slow down!
i'm losing touch
you drag your fists
you lose your might

used to be alive
it felt so real
i live on the house
that overlooks the hill
Track Name: Binding Light
seconds out i can feel it then
like it goes and flies away
somehow you can make it stay
does it matter anyway?

mechanical responses
no reply that calms the mind
they're the words that i'm looking for
the silence gives no kind of sign

and please survive
i need you to survive
swept away by a tremendous
binding light

so we sit back,
and reflect on lost times
all the certain kinds of blades we took
marble slabs that would unwind
out all deprivations
it made it work for me
but somehow you drift away
like satellites into the sea

and please survive
i need you to survive
swept away by a tremendous
binding light

and i don't know
but i've been told
it's all you have and then you let it go
all walks lead straight to the backroad
straight into the grave
taking all things you said,
did and screamed shouted
all the ways, differences
and things i dont understand
oh i understand

when you were alive
you were so full of life
and they took it away
and it hurt so bad
and the weeks went by
no one knew your name
on and on, on and on it went
more and more it stayed the same

and please survive
i need you to survive
swept away by a tremendous
binding light
Track Name: Hypnik Jerk
feed the need
the need to breath
no need to be facetious
don't know where i belong

time your mind
your mind defined
the way you press on harder
makes so hard to pick up on

reign supreme
in doubt of all things
you'll find your way someday
that way is dark and grey

guiding light
the hope is the light
the kind of light
it takes everything to unwind
Track Name: Back To The Basics
eve of denial
eyes bulge around you
drooling at your size
the smiles grow and winding
they curl so deep
into their pale cheeks
the smiles rip their skin
with such crooked grins
its a downwards slide
back to the basics
back to the basics
don't hurt the pride
back to the basics
back to the basics

caught in a rusted trap
no time to think it out
pulling at the leg
trying to escape the situation
noticing tension, of passerby's
attempting to mask the pain with smiles

pushing the pride
the evening i was whisked away
with no thought at all

itching closer to a meaning
a meaning that escapes all expectations
proven false in which it's substantial to me
i need it more than anything
anything
Track Name: Big Pyramid
no hope
among horizons
as the dawn move longer
with the freeze at the single thought
a definitive end
all ambitions, running out
all sounds, rendered to a ominous hum
exhausted, bearings holding up the restraints
that break down
on increasing weight
becoming more and more and more

sights on the high line
sights on the high line

it felt, so real, so real
but only for a time
until the words bled, from the line
the truth scars it stings
it swells and nothing will undo
what you know
the truth goes back for days
and the facts they end where the pages stay
all you do, is stare back
at the faces, staring at you

sights on the high line
sights on the hope line
Track Name: Frances Bay
don't try to smile
it hurts the most
when your not with it
the pain is so real
lasting each and never stopping
in pacing and time
lost within the sound of nothing
nothing is right
nothing seems quite familiar

when will, the feeling end?
gazing at the beige translucence
the punctures and ruptures
threads maintain but never let go
when will the feeling end
days won't stop floating forward
never cease to be, never letting go

and caught in the wind
caught by guilt intersections
the wind pushes hard
forcibly it lifts me upwards
it whisks right by
and stalls without a single reason
all trails fall
stalling at the great all-seaon

when will, the feeling cease?
gazing at the beige transluscence
the punctures and ruptures
threads maintain but never let go
when will the feeling stop?
days won't stop floating forward
it will never cease to be, never let you out
