Track Name: Murky Water
heavy clouds
shone in silence
as we sank down
into deep mire

amid the waves
we died of thirst
gravity rose up
and smothered her

do you hear
the solitude
the color of a deep sigh
it sings to you

and all wept
for the last broken wish
not really understanding
what it meant

though they pretend
though they pretend to
though they pretend
though they pretend to
Track Name: Flower in Bloom
night closed in
he heard a beating heart
descend, descend

perfectly quiet
burning in the darkness
for an instant

a void opened
and by the end
nothing was left
oh, no nothing was left
Track Name: Ode to A. Grape
One day he disappeared
and didn't come back for ten or so years

he sat over there with no look on his face
til one day he found the courage to say

he strung himself up alive
we couldn't tell whether he'd lived or died

by the end, by the end, by the end and i
i never got a chance to say goodbye

One day he disappeared
and didn't come back for ten or so years

he sat over there with no look on his face
til one day we found him hanged

he strung himself up to die
we couldn't tell when he'd ever been alive

by the end, by the end, by the end and i
i never got a chance to say goodbye.
Track Name: Portrait of a Sad Man
a lame wolf
weathered by neglect and time
howling questions
pelted like throwing stones

people wearing laughter
like a second skin
monstrous faces masked
with smiles false

wondering at his mistakes
a life was lost
he drip drop drips into the ground
into the ground
Track Name: When We Used to Live
when we used to live in the forest
the hole in our heads grew easily
a small spider was living inside
maybe one day a tree will grow there

everybody's lungs would begin to collapse
destruction meaning that which pulls down
those who are in the hands of the gods

we carried your sins out of the village
I looked down and there was nothing left.
Track Name: I Killed My Brain Child
Who left the lights on
to illuminate the world around me
I much prefer these cancer walls
With darkness seeping in

I killed my brain child
Does that make me a bad mother?
Stuck, struck, strangled, suffocated
Underneath the covers
the access of impatience
Breeds ugly beasts and monsters

I don't want to look at it
Turn my blind eye in its direction
Let them suffer slow and silent
Those who beg for my affection

I killed my brain child
Does that make me a bad mother?
Stuck, struck. strangled, suffocated
Underneath the covers
So opposed to my existence
is everyone around me
Maybe if I do not look
None of them will see

I am unworthy
I am unworthy
Track Name: They Live in the Mind
Crown of glory
Hands raised high
Sort them in order
They live in the mind
They live in the mind

Graveyard love
Burns terribly bright
Thousands of nights passing by
They live in the mind
They live in the mind

Your bones will not grow
For outside is too cold, you know
Flutter on by butterfly
On through the snow, you know
They live in the mind
They live in the mind
Track Name: Entropy (Black Holes Have No Hair)
Gravity drags back the light
Orbit the dark star at the
Center of a timelike path
A hidden sun will collapse

Even god is bound by uncertainty
Come to an end at the singularity
Such loss down the black hole
Never getting very far away
