Track Name: A Thing About Something
Her voice was all I felt
Her touch, all I heard
Making all this thinking
Of thoughts so absurd

Such imagination
Ran throughout my mind
Enhanced by warm silence
Were the images I grew blind
I know that it’s just delusion
Formed by my seclusion
But I’ll hide in the veil of illusion
Til you come down and give me conclusion
Come all the way down and give me this fucking conclusion

There she lays, with her body safe and sound
But she never realized that her mind is something she never found

There she lays, with her body safe and sound
But she never realized that her mind is something she never found

She never realized that her mind was something
Track Name: Neutralized Neurosis
Taking what I have lost
Not caring
I dare you to defy what has been written
Tell me if you want it
Darlin’, think about me
Dark and unfocused
Let those thoughts drift over here

Hollow crowds and reflections telling me that I’m really not coming back
I know you’re trying everything just to show me love but I’m still cracked

Minds melt in to one
You have forgotten me
I would have never betrayed you like this

Five pills
Start the day
My memory
Distorts and fades

Unstable my thoughts
Make me think that it’s all alright
Savor this breath
It was almost my last one

They will be missed

Hollow crowds and reflections telling me that I’m really not coming back
I know you’re trying everything just to show me love…

When the sunlight hits your eyes just right
I think about it
Maybe I’ll just give you my life.
Locking in the medicine that I never needed

Can you tell me where it all starts
And can you tell me if it will end
I told you all of my thoughts I left
Behind your defense

I can’t ask you to share what’s left of your mortality
I’ll ask you what I need and I can hear you say “It’s me”

Every syllable from purple lips has me running further away
Fearing that a knife will come to life in the very next word that you say

Tailor made blankets to offer a false sense of security
Becoming the noose that she never intended it to be

Violet’s true meaning was never implied
Lightening colored glass from the inside
Purple mouth, purple heart, purple thoughts in her head
Keeping colors at bay only works when you’re dead

I hope it hurts you
When you hate me
I hope you know
I’m still
I’m still fucked up
Track Name: Angola
She reminds me of something I can’t quite remember
While you define me as the face of this dark December

Keep on staring at a broken mirror.
Say that you’re just looking for someone.
Now turn and press against me
Stop shaking and I’ll wipe away your

Tears that bled through
I’ll never be dry again
Put them in a capsule for you
Later I’ll take them

Keep on staring at a broken mirror.
Say that you’re looking for someone.
Now turn and press against me
Stop shaking and I’ll…

Put the diamonds back on your lashes
Clean and rotten too
A hand on your waist I comprehend
You are now see through

Is it me who’s fading
Dazing towards this world away
Or is it everyone else
Turning to a cold cadaver gray
Please don’t fade

Filled paper
Was set on fire
I watched your glazed gaze
As you respire
Funny how this is now
All that I require

You made the lion lie with the lamb
When you tricked the hurry out of time
You made the mirth recede completely out of life

Ash scabs fell in your hair
A month’s snowflakes on the grass
Lead me to the

Erroneous
Conclusion
Snared the
Truth out of me

I can’t feel my heart. Now I’m wondering am I still alive. Will all this panic help me to survive. It seems to be all I've got when you‘re…

Dancing in the puddles, and expecting to stay dry
Singing over what’s been left as our remains
Prying at your dignity with faintly glowing nails
I’d love to be around to see what it is that you find

But it’s dark and you’re not here anymore
Maybe someday you and I will see the same sky

I've taken just a little piece of you
I don’t matter
It has taken me

You've got eyes that I seem to swim right through
From a held breath and a smile she screamed
Track Name: Malady
Civil silence wrapped in my own mind
A confrontation of violence worn to sublime
It causes faithful. It causes a right.
It caused the rainfall you’ll see tonight
And you’ll swoon

Safe from all the souls you were born to light
Drink a brand new hole and you will null this life

*Chorus*
Sacred cotard watching life
It’s all a dispersal
Fallen angels bathed in light
Sense is universal

We’re born to die

Celebrate your tragedy
Celebrate your tragedy
Lose all your insecurities
Embrace your malady

Come through
Do what you’ve always been able to do
So many hearts and so few eyes
Only one ear and fewer minds
Come through
Come through

*Chorus*
Track Name: Zephyr Sepulcher Part 1: Azure Entombment
Eyes from above us
Came circling down
And I've never seen before
The total ground
I just stay in awe
Of what’s all around

*Chorus*
I’ll be buried in the sky
And generous to all the earth when I die

This body seems to
Belong to all of you
A sovereign day
Is sure to ensue

*Chorus*
Track Name: Deception of the Oratory
Unconscious slurs open a day
A place you've never been
But plenty people have stayed
In this place, convinced of sin
Keep me here with you and
Do try to listen
I’ll say what you do
Never see the light you dim

Caged razors in your mouth
Past the one on your face
Chew on at the void I fear
And the sound behind me
Came directly from above
The touch on my eyes
Lets me see through your transparent lies
I’m doused in a truth I know
That will guide me to eternity

Fueled by what it’s done
So sure you would've known
And we wonder how you could ever run from

A presence so loud
Yet you still don’t hear
What you think is from your head
And inspired by the fear

Watch their modest steps forward then
Watch their colossal leap back from

A presence so loud
Yet you still don’t hear
What you think is from your head
And inspired by fear

You fell from your place
Derived a hole out of the cold
You fell from your place
I never thought I’d see the beauty in the future
I never thought I’d see the beauty in forever
