Track Name: Private Myths
I'm at the back of your skull.

From the whites of your eyes to the back of your mind
I'm on my way to promises that you've made.

To the great cosmic indifference
I'm on my way
From the whites of your eyes, to the back of your mind, to everything.

I’m on my way, under your skin
From the whites of your eyes, to the back of your mind, to everything.

I'm at the back of your skull.
Track Name: Springtime in the Void
Dragging dogs down dark desolation
Pushing people past points of perfection
Anywhere, anytime, always.

Sold short, long game, passed on but still stay.

Begging for anything.
Track Name: Constant State of Vertigo
Held knees to your chest
Held hands with yourself
Held up above.

Same old, same old, same old, same old.

Held up above, looking down on the room.

I've done this to myself.
Track Name: Blue Sun Up, Three Miles to the Coast
Strained eyes and the passage of time
Blurred lights as the world slips by.

Cast bones in glass weak enough that smoke would shatter
I want to feel you wrapped around my pulse.
Cast bones in glass weak enough that smoke would shatter
I want to feel you wrapped around my throat.

Tell my eyes what to see
Tell my lips how to speak
Lay my head in your lap
Pull the shade over me.

Everything you're seeing, you may be seeing for the last time.
Track Name: Kingdom on Earth
Ears pinned for an answer
Below in the street.
Scraping stones from our skin
Pulling thorns from our feet.

Knees straining over thin carpet
Neck chained to the cloudless sky
Always making trouble for yourself.
Track Name: Call Their Name and They Will Answer
String along, strung along
Lie to yourself
Do your best to.

Let me let you
Let me set out clues
Let me glide straight through
Let me fall prey to you.

Open up, soft glow, innocent age
Victim of foolish ways.

Call their name and they will answer.
Track Name: Your Right to Futility
A man may gorge himself
A man may dine alone
A man may live in fear
A man beyond reproach.

Legs twist beneath in prayer
Hands point at the base of your chin.
Fingers locked in the shape of a gun
You plead and you plead.

In spite of being ignored you plead.

I can’t keep you from your right to futility.

We all keep secrets.
Track Name: The Ground Stepped Back
When you come unstuck, you float away slowly.

First comes denial, then fear, then acceptance
Everything is beautiful for a second.

Everything was beautiful.
