Track Name: Passage Tomb
PASSAGE TOMB
Down across the valley wide,
ages labor earth aside.
It's summer now the sun is high
same light that caught my father's eye.

Ancient plan followed with care,
tribesmen searching everywhere.
Perfect stone ritualized,
live because the sun's alive.

Passage tomb - earthly womb,
sacred room of our solar deity.
Passage tomb - nothing soon,
forgotten rune - our shamanic history.

Two generations' toiling done,
we've built a mound of stone and blood.
It's winter now and death has come.
Time to summon back the Sun.

Sacred mound of spirits raised,
sacred things receiving praise.
Ages pass, memory erased,
culture gone leave but a trace.

Passage tomb - nothing soon,
forgotten rune - our shamanic history [in stone...]
Track Name: Never
NEVER
New moon.. no time - In between the days.
Faerie tail so long forgotten - front newspaper page.
Harrowing experience - beyond my wildest wish.
Never did I imagine - that I would die like this.

Information coalescing - null is no response.
How many people understand what they think they want?
Habitation coexistent underneath the sun
communication ended before it's ever begun.

Words can mean anything - exactly what I say.
Sentencing us all to form the world in our own way..
We can be anything - exacty what we do.
There is no punctuation between the shadow and you.

I am never falling down again.

I can't remember I can't forsee everything that's happened here.
I can't abide and I can't repeat. I'll wind away from year to year.
I can't see where this is going. I can't see what seeds we're sowing.
Inside the science outside belief around the bend beyond the fear.
Understand your inhibition emancipate but keep it near.
Broken machines that we're deploying
beautiful things that we're destroying.
Find your own serenity. Understand what you hold dear.
Sacrifice to see the word and all will be crystal clear.

End soon. Slow rhyme. Numbering the days.
Footsteps in your attic. Dusty window pane.
Broken down experience. Eyes wide to what you find.
Remember that a quiet is only in your mind.

Isolation continuing, symbols in the air.
Pore over incunabula. Ponder what is there.
Deep inside the waking state. Wedded to the sea.
Cross over the abyss and climb up the tree..

Words can mean anything - exactly what I say.
Sentencing us all to form the world in our own way.
We can be anything - exactly what we do.
There is no punctuation between the shadow and you.

I am never falling down again...
Track Name: Fail
Fail

There’s a road that stretches out behind you
And far ahead
Many turns can it lead you down
Or maybe you decide that
You’re really better off dead

Walk along as though your life’s recited
From memory
Of all the ever after dark
Insanities

That bubble and ooze
Into your mind and
Find a place inside of there
To die

I can’t do anything for you
Unless you come to realize
That there are better things
To do
With minds than to enrapture them
And hearts than pound another nail

I can’t believe
there’s any single Truth
That you can keep
inside of you
And take away
The emptiness of
Finding out that this
Is an experiment that failed
I can’t do anything for you
Unless you come to realize
That there are better things
To do
With minds than to enrapture them
And hearts than pound another nail

I can’t believe
there’s any thing for you
That you can keep
inside of you
And take away
The loneliness of
Finding out your life’s
an experiment that failed
Track Name: Working Condition
Working Condition

Concurrent Transgression. Uninterrupted Disappointment.
Smile in the face of Misunderstanding. I do what I can for you.

There are no easy answers. You'd think there'd be a better way.
Choosing not to make a choice isn't choosing not to choose.

Is there a way to make a difference? Undocumented endless mission.
Break and make and patch and code into some sort of working condition.

It's not about how much i give. It's all about how much you take.
it isn't that i'm insincere, it's just that you're fucking fake.

I see through you - I see through you - I see through you - I see through you

Single minded multitasking. Uninterested unexplained.
Let's pretend this is what i chose to do and that i even had a say.

Self-inflicted unswerving devotion. Self respect a small price to pay.
He who cowers and runs away lives to lose another day.

Is there a way to make a difference? Undocumented endless mission.
Break and make and patch and code into some sort of working condition.

It's not about how much i give. It's all about how much you take.
it isn't that i'm insincere, it's just that you're fucking fake.

I see through you - I see through you - I see through you - I see through you

Is there a way to make a difference? Unsupported endless mission.
Break and make and patch and code into some sort of working condition.
Track Name: Fear
Fear

Under this rain - under this division
I run from the shadow inside my head
Defying this pain and indecision
Fallen hero with nothing left

I will be a spirit walking enemy
In this holy site
I can see a terrifying fantasy
Clouding my mind

I read the book - can’t see the pages
I reach for help there’s nothing there
I sleep in this endless sleep of ages
Painlessly crushed and unaware

I will be a spirit walking enemy
In this holy site
I can see a terrifying fantasy
Clouding my mind

[Bene Gesserit Litany Against Fear]

Tearing away an attempt to know
I reach for malice and apathy
I feed my will to force away this
Dr Eck psychology

I will be a spirit walking enemy
In this holy site
I can see a terrifying fantasy
Clouding my mind
Track Name: Losses
Losses

Something happened I don't know when or what
And now it's missing - some small thing that I forgot
I wracked my brain but i won't play the game
I guess I'd like to think I'm not insane

Cut off from my inner vision
no more source to illuminate
contributing to this underwhelming
piss poor dirt floor sorry state

breaking in through the attic window
broken paines of blood stained glass
can't recall above now that I'm below
time to cut my losses and get out fast

mostly heartless in me
subdivided in thee
no buried treasure in store
no rewards anymore

cut my teeth on television
maternal loss incriminate
subtracting from my concentration
fractured will to motivate

building toward my deprogramming
clutching a shard of life at last
walk through the wall and step through code
countless iterations incrementing past

mostly heartless in me
subdivided in thee
no buried treasure in store
no rewards anymore...
Track Name: !Forgiveness
!Forgiveness

Now comes the time for us to face the truth
the only path i'll walk is away from you
it seems to me that your ultimate design
is to remove me. well bitch get in line

take away
changing me
take away
what is there left now to see?

I give you all i can. You give me nothing back.
Your focus limited to only what I lack.
I give nothing more. I take whats mine.
No forgiveness. No more sunshine.

Maybe i'm missing some important fact
decided in the meetings you held behind my back
I sacrificed for you and look at what i got
I realized my error and now our future's shot

take away
changing me
take away
what is there left now to see?

I give you all i can. You give me nothing back.
Your focus limited to only what I lack.
I give nothing more. I take whats mine.
No forgiveness. No more sunshine.

I give you all i can. You give me nothing back.
Your focus limited to only what I lack.
I give nothing more. I take whats mine.
No forgiveness. No more sunshine.

done with empathy
done with you and me
done with everything
that we couldn't be

time to go away
time to disconnect
time to slip the noose
around your fucking neck

no forgiveness
no more sunshine
no forgiveness
no more sunshine...
