Track Name: Anias Nin In Jatinga
With the woes of the day settled in the glade
A saturated rhythm science forbade


Each empyrean vagabond amid dreams of breath
An autumn deluge of feather’s dipping to their death

Jatinga’s fields bestrewn with the mesmerized, the dead
The doctrine of logic now humbled lowers it’s head


Why diurnal should yaw aphotic
Whims of the illogic remain hypnotic

Mischief on her tongue her defenses in her pocket
If danger swells here now you can see her stalk it


Is the earth her magnet, is it the blind of the vapor
What brings her to the alley shirt open to this caper


Rationality on mute the absurd brings her to her knees
An inebriated equation surrenders to the tease



Waking from their lullaby the flocks and Anias Nin
Providing themselves sweetly to perilous sin

Why diurnal should yaw aphotic
Whims of the illogic remain hypnotic
Track Name: Devotees
Devotees to the lies
Time to unfurl your eyes


Purveyors of supposition
Summon onus for it’s attrition


Another soldier to the earth
Another sold in water after birth


No more time for this fiction
We alone must halt affliction


Freedom is free


Each passel slave to a word
Blind surrender to the heard


You see the price of admission
Faith taking life a long tradition


With your head pushed underwater
It’s with this same trust you’ll slaughter


If the unknown introduces fear
Linger deep in your abandon dear
Track Name: Dying Stars
Get it out, tear it out at any cost
Pull its fucking life apart
Stomp it to pieces and scream out loud
Scrape the shards across your skin


Crushing weight
Of distant dying stars
A universe of endless screams pulled into the void
For none to hear


In the end we all get swallowed and spat out again
In the end we all get eaten and shit out to the wind
In the end we all get eaten and shit out to the wind
Track Name: Dusk Lifts Its Skirt
When the rain hurries home
And the dusk lifts its skirt
Blush against monochrome
Shiver laced in with mischief


Drug on the tongue,
settling in
making my lungs
harbinger to the forest’s hunger


Yielding a naive bird
to the dark water’s edge
Your thirst still undeterred
Your keen glances in yen


Where the whores giggle
Where the strangers stiffen
I will find you there
Rain soaked, lust bitten


You open my mouth
You unlace your fury
You take what you want
Leave my conscience dirty


I could die right here
Leave my body nameless
This is your doing
You will find me shameless


Down by the railroad tracks
There’s a fable foretold
What is given returned
Oh but this steal’s so cold


Wind through the trees
You’re unprepared
Reciprocate
Will you be spared?


Though the darkness you wade
Spite’s heat kisses my face
On these cold tracks you laid
I brought spools of my hate


Where the vagrants roam
Where the fable’s written
You will find me there
Rain soaked, angst bitten


I’ll open up your mouth
I’ll unlace my fury
I will take what I want
Leave your conscience dirty


You could die right here
leave your body nameless
This is my doing
Will you find me blameless?




Will you find me blameless?


Here the train comes


Hear the beast’s thrum


Feel the time slip


Away…..


A child’s memory to betray



Feel the time slip
Here the train comes
Hear the beast’s thrum
Track Name: As You Sink
Dipping the tough soles of your feet
Sorrow’s ocean here to greet
As to those above the water you shrink
I watch you growing as you sink


You were swimming treading water everyday
Today you fall deeper, at the bottom you lay




It’s quiet like January in the north
It’s here the nothing beckons you forth
Your body blue, your mind the sky’s art
Tells you quite frankly with reality to part




weighed down by empty, the nothing, the space
Viktor Frankel graffitied his name in this place


Dipping the tough soles of your feet
Sorrow’s ocean here to greet
As to those above the water you shrink
I watch you growing as you sink
Track Name: The Seconds Rebel
I said to you we couldn’t go back
Rocky regret lay downstream
You said to me we couldn’t go forth
The current’s fury extreme


With my hand tucked in yours
Dark truth lodged in my throat
Stasis wanders away
It’s here the presence is wrote


To harness helium’s whim
To harvest waters deep swell
To distill all that we have
So in this moment we’d dwell


But time is an intruder
A warrior to the still
This moment our only fight
Please stay right here nurse me until…



The seconds rebel


The sun’s path suspended


The raven frozen in flight


The future and past amended




To harness helium’s whim
To harvest waters deep swell
To distill all that we have
So in this moment we’d dwell


But time is an intruder
A warrior to the still
This moment our only fight
Please stay right here nurse me until…


The seconds rebel


The sun’s path suspended


The raven frozen in flight


The future and past amended




A-a-amended
Track Name: Tigerweb
Caught in a tiger’s web
Slaughtered dreams standing by
It wasn’t that long ago the rainbows haunted this place
Now you sit anxious to see, see the next sacrifice
The way the people watch the gods, watch the sky for more,
The milkweed kept the children busy
while the mothers and fathers tended to the earth’s blood
You woke up wanting less
You woke up with the more


And you waited, waited for what will be
The forecast is late today the girl is making out in the hayloft
cause she knows she hasn’t got long
And the smell of composted regret filling the city tells us all we haven’t long
But still you shower and brush your teeth
The threat of a cavity from the sweetness of the end looms large in your mind
The whole world is trying to wake up
But the sandman put this shit in their eyes


And it’s nothing new
And it’s nothing more
And it’s nothing less


And it’s less than nothing
