Track Name: My War
My War:

You swept me off of my feet
Made truth of all of my dreams
These wrinkles show how deep
Our love can go
Though we drown in trouble
We surface with the small hope
That our roots run deeper
Deeper than weeds we grow

I am under this siege
Encircling what’s left of me
You’re a lantern flickering
Drawing me close
Bombs drop off my tongue
Unwinding spirals undone
A crooked staircase I run
Emptied at the seams

There’s a war inside my ribcage
Where my blood is being spilled
There’s a whole in every good heart
That only can love can fill

There’s a war inside my ribcage
Where my blood is being spilled
There’s a whole in every good heart
That only can love can fill

There’s a war inside my ribcage
Where my blood is being spilled
There’s a whole in every good heart
That only can love can fill

There’s a war inside my ribcage
Where my blood is being spilled
There’s a whole in every good heart
That only can love can fill

Lead me from my sorrow
Save me from tomorrow
Lead me from my sorrow
Save me from tomorrow
Fruits of my flesh leave me hollow
Spirit inside I will follow
Track Name: Our Home
Our Home:

You gave your hand to me
And I wrote a symphony
I wrote a symphony
The blurry line I’m on
You’ve cast your light upon
You’ve cast your light upon

Oh well, maybe I’m cold
I’m fading up from my bones
Oh well, maybe the ground
Couldn’t hold my soul down
Down, down, down
Down, down, down
Down, down, down

So I’ll wear this old white dress
You’ll clean the stains from it
You’ll clean the stains from it
We’ll share a simple kiss
And seal our love with it
Seal our love with it

Oh well, maybe I’m cold
I’m fading up from my bones
Oh well, maybe the ground
Couldn’t hold my soul down
Down, down, down
Down, down, down
Down, down, down

I’ll keep rising up
Something like a ghost
You’ll be at the end
Building us a home

I’ll keep rising up
Something like a ghost
You’ll be at the end
Building us a

Track Name: Katz
Katz:

Do you feel shaken down and out
Of love run dry bones collecting
Dust off the thought of who you were?
Are you burdened by time from clocks
Tick tock marks measure prospect-
If I let go will you still move on?

I fear the comfort
In the sphere-here of my birth

And the cat’s out of the bag, growing
And the cat’s out of the bag, roaming
Are there words on your tongue?
Words on your tongue?
Did you mean what you said
When you said that you are done?
Are there words on your tongue?
Words on your tongue?
Did you mean what you said
When you said that you are done?

You left in a hurry up and
Take what you claim to be your-
Still vacancy you’ve got such nerve
I won’t turn back turned keep running
Won’t undo do you feel the
Waiting for you is wishful thought?

I fear the comfort
In the sphere-here of my birth

And the cat’s out of the bag, growing
And the cat’s out of the bag, roaming
Are there words on your tongue?
Words on your tongue?
Did you mean what you said
When you said that you are done?
Are there words on your tongue?
Words on your tongue?
Did you mean what you said
When you said that you are done?

Breathing verses out of your lungs
Let the knots in your tongue come undone
Breathing verses out of your lungs
Let the knots in your tongue come undone

And the cat’s out of the bag, growing
And the cat’s out of the bag, roaming
Are there words on your tongue?
Words on your tongue?
Did you mean what you said
When you said that you are done?

Do you feel shaken down and out
Of love run dry bones collecting
Dust off the thought of who you were?
Track Name: Teleprompter King
Teleprompter King:

You, spit out these teleprompter lines
Spit out these teleprompter lines
Carved in the ceiling of your mind
Bind, my tiny fingers in your law
My tiny fingers in your law
Being the king is not enough

Out on this island
We will sink under the boat
Up on this mountain
We will climb until we choke

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Losing the air inside my lungs
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Losing the air inside my lungs
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha, ha


Keep, extracting dollars from your teeth
Extracting dollars from your teeth
Rolled up inside your cavities
Heat, under the collar of your chain
Under the collar of your chain
Climb up the ladder, play their game

Out on this island
We will sink under the boat
Up on this mountain
We will climb until we choke

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Losing the air inside my lungs
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Losing the air inside my lungs
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha, ha


Ahh
Ahh ah
Ahh
Ahh ah

Such a long way
Such a long way down these stairs
From your high throne
Absent of the crowns you bear
Such a long way
Such a long way down these stairs
From your high throne
Absent of the crowns you bear

Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Losing the air inside my lungs
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Losing the air inside my lungs
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Losing the air inside my lungs
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha
Ha, ha, ha, ha
Track Name: Rewinding Tapes
Rewinding Tapes:

Turbulent dialogue
Floating casually on flaws
When did you get so far from me?
Fatal powder in the gun
Concealed behind your tongue
Shoot straight, don’t hesitate your aim

Poison in the slurs behind your grin
Do you care the state in which I’m in?

Like rewinding tracks
There’s a light still burning in your past
Like reversing tapes
There’s a screeching voice behind your fate
Like reversing tracks
Burning lights but you cannot go back
Like rewinding tapes
Screeching voices emphasize your fate
Your fate

You keep triggering blows
Transparent bullet holes
Small tears inside my soul
What happened to our home?
I would stay, just to escape
The rain upon the roof of your place
It’s a haven, a comfortable space
But now it’s storming in my face

Poison in the slurs behind your grin
Do you care the state in which I’m in?

Like rewinding tracks
There’s a light still burning in your past
Like reversing tapes
There’s a screeching voice behind your fate
Like reversing tracks
Burning lights but you cannot go back
Like rewinding tapes
Screeching voices emphasize your fate
Your fate

So let it unwind
Don’t watch the tapes rewind
So let it unwind
Don’t watch the tapes rewind
Track Name: In Excess
In Excess:

Many, many, many of us want to run
To run, run, run around, round, round and
Down, down, down, want to drop, drip, drop drop it
Down, down, downtown, and collect, and collect, yeah

Many, many, many of us want to run
To run, run, run around, round, round and
Down, down, down, want to drop, drip, drop drop it
Down, down, downtown, and collect, and collect, yeah

I’m not supposed
To be alarmed by this
But I know
In excess we stand
I’m not alone
I have a hand in this
But I know
In excess we stand

Overload of expenses
Selling me false pretenses
Fleeting highs never filling
In the sides of my being
Rolling up in our fast rides
Gold teeth covering our smiles
Lavish living and champagne
Interfering with our space

I’m not supposed
To be alarmed by this
But I know
In excess we stand
I’m not alone
I have a hand in this
But I know

We need an out
From our skin
From our sins
In the rising inflation
Down
From our highs
From the lies
Lack of sight in our faces

Many, many, many of us want to run
To run, run, run away, way, way and
Let go, go, want to stop, step, stop, stepping in
Madness, mad excess, find an end, yeah

Many, many, many of us want to run
To run, run, run away, way, way and
Let go, go, want to stop, step, stop, stepping in
Madness, mad excess, find an end, yeah

I’m not supposed
To be alarmed by this
But I know
In excess we stand
I’m not alone
I have a hand in this
But I know
In excess we stand
I’m not supposed
To be alarmed by this
But I know
In excess we stand
Track Name: Who I Was
Who I Was:

Hidden secret games have gone too far,
I must confess I'm hollowed at my core
Stuck inside a circle spinning fast
I'm trying to define my blurry past
Poured it out accepting just a shell
Robotic programmed smile is my hell
All the while I nod my head and grin
I'm hoping to relieve my dissonance

I am far away from home
Back turned from everyone I've known
I am far away from home
Back turned from everyone I've known

Uneven sum inside the ledger lines
I'm weighing down the balance on one side
The threads of my flesh ache as I persist
Surrender is a virtue I resist
I cannot let it go
'Cause with it I may fall
Convince me to let it go
And catch me as I fall

I am far away from home
Back turned from everyone I've known
I am far away from home
Back turned from everyone I've known

I've lost who I was
I've lost who I was
I've lost who I was
I've lost who I was
