Track Name: Tightrope Walker Complex
If you walk to the edge
I’m out of reach
Track Name: Lightning Beneath The Sea
Take shelter underneath her hands wrapped in white paper
I sank all my emotions before I disappeared

I'm a landslide, I'm a landslide, I'm a rage

I'll stare out the distortion
So I can see clearer
I'll break through all the lightning
And float in the ether

I'm a landslide, I'm a landslide, I'm a rage
Track Name: I Am Your Density
Do you see everything? How?
Do you see everything? How?
Talking to myself now
You know it makes more sense
I found nothing helps

Well you promised me
That I’d never be the same
It’s a slow embrace
But I’ve never been afraid

Do you feel everything? How?
Do you feel anything now?
It's all irrelevant now
I can stare out the sun
I found nothing helps

Well you promised me
That I’d never be the same
It’s a slow embrace
But I’ve never been afraid
Track Name: The Moth
Sucked right through the vacuum of this plasmid-layered carnival
Open-ended backseat laced, tremorring rapes the metronome

This fractured brain shattering everywhere slowly (away)

Caught beneath the entrails of your black lung breathing the hex's toll
Concubine endorphins making my breathing rhetorical
Coagulate in numbness as your brain precedes the wrecking ball
Orchestrate the madness in the amputation of your soul

This fractured brain shattering everywhere slowly (away)
Track Name: Dancing On The Sea Lion
I was born as a camera
I was born with a mouthful of stars

I was born as a photograph
I was born with my mouth full of scars
Track Name: A Thousand Knives / A Thousand Wives
Congratulations you have won again
My rhythm of vision burns your head
A soft touch in your heart
Where the debris meets the sea

We will take her bones at midnight

Commiserations I have won, my friend
My rhythm of vision circles your head
I just wish you never knew
Collect the prize for the few

We will take her bones at midnight
Track Name: Llifo
Llifo
Track Name: Apia
It’s a long way down from here

What you say, take it back
Burn it down: The discothèque
Tremor-shaped amnesiac
Neon skies: The heart attack

Suffer, suffer. It’s what you wanted
Crawling through your fingers
Track Name: Wearing Shorts in Scotland
What do you do when I disappear?
And will our lost youth be recaptured?
Throw a net over your loves' lost fading soul
Intravenous injection, alone blood-drenched snow

I'll tear you new eye holes
So you can see in the way that you wanted
The smile on your face
I drank up the ocean
But the salt dried my mind
And when I died I confessed
It felt alright
