Track Name: A Shallow Well
You think you're going deeper
A chasm in mind
When all it is
Is a shallow well
For you to put your head
"The well is deep, the well is pure."
That's what they had in mind.
Simple words for a simple kind.
My patience is out of time
I wish I could write it out
In words we could comprehend
Instead I think to myself
How much better off I've been
Coffee and the weather
Makes you pray
For high times and bright skies
As your life begins to fray
I'm throwing something in
But nothing's coming out
I'm throwing something in
But nothing's coming out
Track Name: Wilhelm Scream
Oh come now, don't you see?
I've been right here beneath
Stale letters and ticks, you see
Feed the body, nourished and clean
Don't you cry
You're not the only one who tried
Don't you cry
You burned down your house and home
You never let the garden grow
It's never seen the harsh light of day
A shitty heart reflects your other name
Don't you cry
You're not the only one who tried
Don't you cry
I can't say that I'll get away from you
I can't say that I'll get away from you
I swear I've seen the light
A sign of an end
But now there's a chance
For this truth to bend
I swear it's pretty loud
That fast fading scream (out)
Telling me, oh its telling me
To let it out (out)
Don't you cry
You're not the only one who tried
Don't you cry
I can't say that I'll get away from you
I can't say that I'll get away from you
Track Name: Blood Honey
It's your silhouette that I draw
to keep my hands from going numb
The colors show that it's more than
a simple black and white
But it doesn't prove a thing,
you're in my blood,
I'm not okay...
it doesn't prove a thing,
you're in my blood
its in my blood, honey
its in my blood, honey
I don't want to change,
I don't want to change this love that's comforting
its in my blood, honey...
It's coming back
years later
and I'm still feeling the effects
My Bleeding hands
spanning your dreams
do they hold you hostage
like you do to me.
But it doesn't prove a thing,
you're in my blood,
I'm not okay...
it doesn't prove a thing,
you're in my blood
its in my blood, honey
its in my blood
I don't want to change,
I don't want to change this love that's comforting
its in my blood, honey...
Track Name: The River
Floating down the river now,
waiting for his head to tip.
Floating down the river sounds,
you know, you know,
your waiting for his head to slip
Underneath the water,
Underneath the chasms sown.
Floating down the river now;
the fight between sink or swim.
Soaring down the river now,
the waves they rock him to sleep.
Soaring past the river town,
A boy, a boy can't help but try to scream.
Underneath the water,
Underneath the chasms sown.
Soaring down the river now;
The water funnels down his throat.
Floating down the river now,
A boy, a boy, he surfaces
Floating down the river now,
A boy, a boy, he surfaces
Floating down the river now,
A boy, a boy, he surfaces, his head.
Track Name: In The Mountain
In the mountain, it's deep and alive.
Where we go to continue to survive.
All in all, we continue to fall.
In the mountain, we go to flee.
Fill with strength to fight to be.
All in all, we continue to fall.
In the mountain.
In the mountain, I lost my soul.
Swept to the wind with the dying coal.
All in all, I continue to fall.
In the mountain, I go to hide.
Only to have me crawl when I need your side.
All in all, I will continue to fall.
In the mountain.
In the mountain, we all will part.
Ourselves, our minds, our burning hearts.
But side by side, we hope to rise.
In the mountain.
In the mountain, we all grow old.
Put in a box that the devils sold.
But all in all, I continue to fall
In the mountain.
Track Name: Oculus
Florescent lights and binding sights
All to make us feel safe and sound
Monuments to heaven and stars above
Leaps and bounds, over and out
Oh I swear I pray each and every day.
Marked my page to read what to say.
I’m down on two knees riding the sins away
I say I’ll do more then nothing at all.
To the eye in the sky
We have failed to comply
Seize our abandoned minds
Never to comply
The eye in the sky
Oceans of iron, static waves
Echos of ghosts...
I’ve given myself to the larger cause
The want to be safe and never be free
Red, orange, and yellow dye
Colors of the fourth of July
Save our abandoned minds
Never to comply
The eye in the sky
I have heard the tolling bells
Countries of steel afore me fell
I am prepared for the journey home.
I have seen the hand of God
Covered in wires, gears, and cogs.
Hurry up now for the journey home.
Take control and lead me on...
To the eye in the sky (the colors of the fouth of july)
We have failed to comply (red, orange, and yellow dye)
Seize our failing minds
Abandoned, no reply.
The eye in the sky.
Track Name: Lead Blanket
It's been seven weeks and many more months
since anything intelligent or worthwhile
has crept past these lips, let alone
fallen on some other primate's airspace.
Yet, who knew
that you were feeble and weak
in the wild shitstorm.
But you knew...
You said "it's just the way it is,
just the way it is"
You screamed, "it's just the way it is".
And it screamed...
"Let me out,
Let me go,
Let me out"
and it screams
Yet, who knew,
who the fuck knew it would take
seven weeks, many months, and just one more day
for a certain feeble mind to chew through
the proverbial lead blanket.
And it screamed...
"Let me out,
Let me go,
Let me out"
Track Name: Dead Cellar
Irritated eye
Bloodshot and dry
Dust collects
From days long before.
Orange, black, and red
Sepia tone
I've seen no better days
Inside this tinted haze.
The dead cellar is calling.
The dead cellar is calling.
I'm accustomed to all this stale air
Get me out of here or else I won't leave.
The dead cellar is calling.
The dead cellar is calling.
The dead cellar is calling.
The dead cellar is calling.
When I look inside
I breathe and I try.
Bloodshot and dried
I breed and die.
The dead cellar is calling.
The dead cellar is calling.
The dead cellar is calling.
The dead cellar is calling.
Track Name: Flat Field
In the flat field
I'm down and out
No one to care for
Even myself
I'm homesick
Lazy and tired
Never upward
On and ever gone
Won't you come on home?
Won't you come on home?
In the flat field
I'm my own God
Oh I can
I can turn it around
Blank canvas
Colorful minds
Towers to the clouds
Maybe I can try...
Won't you come on home?
Won't you come on home?
The calm winds come
The hard winds blows
But they'll never come
To take me home
The calm winds come
The hard winds blow
But you'll never come
To take me home
The calm winds come
The hard winds blows
But they've come and gone
I'm coming home
Track Name: Suffer
Watch me burn
Fear my words
I'm scared to think and what to feel.
Suffer, Suffer...
I'm wicked tired
Can't fall asleep at night
Anxiety bleeds through my thoughts
Suffer, Suffer...
Watch me burn and suffer
You fear my words and suffer
I'm scared to think and what to feel at home.
and I suffer, I'm suffering...
I fade away and suffer
All alone I walk to suffer
Into the mist and paranoia at home
and I suffer, I'm suffering...
and I suffer, I'm suffering...
and I suffer, I'm suffering...
Track Name: Giants
Life less frightening.
Day less dawning.
Shackling a broken city,
While these rich are crowning.
No one speaks a word.
No one hears what's worth being heard.
Wings that rise, symbol that burns,
Will always come back with the birds.
A silence in the wind shows us a sign
That these dark days will end.
Take your chance and scream out loud
Cause this is all you'll get before the end.
A sky far from bright
And screams from man made blight
Cause these invisible hearts
To shatter by evil delight.
Those who speak the sound
As they hear their final clock being wound,
"Break my body and break my spirit,
But you'll never break the hero
As long as my soul..."
Sounds in the wind shows us a sign
That these dark days will end.
So take your chance and scream out loud
Cause this is all you'll get before the end.
Pry out my eyes
And cripple my legs,
But you'll never break my hero.
These pages with lines and these old Greek designs
Swear on my life that I have not gone far.
I see the sun rise, but never it's demise.
My body's convinced that it never does..
