Track Name: Axe
• Axe

by axe, I will cut you down
you're one sized
how now brown cow?
by axe, I will make you proud
treason mind, foresting clowns

are you out of love?

by axe, I feel better now
better without

are you out of love?
Track Name: May She Endure Forever
• May She Endure Forever

forever doesn't ever measure well....

take my eyes and let her see
give me her back now but keep my knees
and let her sleep so peacefully

may she endure forever more
she is the cure, more potent pure

take my eyes and let her see

may she endure forever more
she is the cure, more potent pure

take my dimes and mix her tea
grow gardens just to fight crime and disease
and let me live a thousand dreams

may she endure forever more
she is the cure, more potent pure

take my dimes and mix her tea

may she endure forever more
she is the cure, more potent pure

forever doesn't ever measure well....
Track Name: Sands of Time
• Sands of Time

let's take some time to unwind
let's take something to cure
let's face another fault line
on another breath upon this Earth

and we bury our heads under the sand

let space and time intertwine
let's fake like we enjoy
we'll work until we all die
and then what is left to quench our thirst?

and we bury our heads under the sand

who are you to judge or question me
and my ways
who are you to shove or wrestle me
and my ways

let's waste on weed and red wine
let's say we love the curse
our faces smile so wide
I don't know how you can throw such dirt

and we bury our heads under the sand...

let's take some time to unwind
let faith endure the worst
our faces crack with smile lines
in another breath upon this Earth

and we bury our heads under the sand...

who are you to lust, you emit hate
everyday
who are you to shut or close the gate
on the saints
Track Name: Eat The Skye
• Eat The Sky

broken and bloodied and fading away
I should've bitten my tongue, as they say
how can you blame me for wanting to fade
and nothing goes away

sitting, uneasy and eye-ing the fruit
what would I do if I didn't have you
and nothing goes my way
I'm nothing more today

living and breathing and eating the sky
they're throwing the sand, but I'm closing my eyes
and they all go away

I've been hiding with this sand in eyes
I've been hiding with the eaten sky
I've been dying every day inside
so excuse me, while I eat the sky

eat the sky
Track Name: Vacancies
• Vacancies

why don't you love the sun?
why do you hate on everything?

pillage the fruit, the bees have seized
wasting the youth, they breed disease

why don't you change your ways
who are you to not have to change

stuck in the tube, your minds have died
loving the rubes, your eyes have lied

why don't you smile back?
what the fuck do you think of that?

killing the beast, wasting the spoils
spilling the beans, money is oil

donning the suit, your needs are greed
nothing to do, grow dark indeed...
Track Name: It Bit me
• it Bit me

oh, it bit me.

the pain endured
the shame
the hurt

and now I can't feel the pain and
life's important as a bug

so tell me what do I do when I do what I do
convince me what I do is how I do what I do
the wincing from blue and bruised back to invincible
it bit me and it's teeth have sunk into

eyes and teeth, you scream, you see
the beastly beast

life is a monster, you can believe it
it will sink it's teeth into you
life's a tornado, wind out to weaken
it can most surely destroy you

life is a monster, oh how it bleeds you
deadened by what you've done to it
you can't escape it, oh how it finds you
once found, it will corner you - you're bit!

the pain endured
the shame
the hurt

Life Malfunkshunned.

so tell me what do I do when I do what I do
convince me what I do is how I do what I do
the wincing from blue and bruised back to invincible
it bit me and it's teeth have sunk into

life is a monster, you can believe it
it will sink it's teeth into you
life's a tornado, wind out to weaken
it can most surely destroy you

life is a monster, oh how it bleeds you
deadened by what you've done to it
you can't escape it, oh how it finds you
once found, it will corner you - you're bit!
Track Name: The Camel (face to face with the straw)
• The Camel (face to face with the straw)

I've been thirsty for so long
and I've been walking for years and years...

when they wouldn't help you,
and I became the mule...

I've been doubted for so long
and I've been working for years through tears...

when they wouldn't know you
and I lived to own you

Face to Face with the Enemy
testing Faith just to get to me
haste not waste is the way to be
Thirsty will be the Death of Me.

I've been taken by storm
lightning struck me down

how it struck me down...

why can't we sweat it all off?
we swallow the sand then we cough
with the thirst slowly gripping a grip
oh, when will we learn?

Face to Face with the Enemy
testing Faith just to get to me
haste not waste is the way to be
Thirsty will be the Death of Me.

why can't we walk on the sand?
with the dreams that we always had planned
with the thirst never ruling our lips
oh, they will all learn to give in...
Track Name: Blindside
• blindside

hail my blindside
took my good eye
and now the climb
is way too high for me

I wasn't meant to
you didn't mean to
we didn't have to

and we try
all under the same sky
why don't we realize
we're under the same sky
we all have a blindside

what to do with the fools in the world

let them be them and let me be me
I wouldn't rest, they would be sleeping
they'd steal your breath & I'd let you breathe
all just to be....

broke my good side
now I'm unkind
turned a good eye
& set my sights to be

I wasn't meant to
you didn't have to
we didn't mean to

and we try
all under the same sky
why don't we realize
we're under the same sky
we all have a blindside

what to do with the fools in the world

let them be them and let me be me
I would invent, they would destroy things
they'd live for land & I'd drift to sea
and let you come with me....
Track Name: Dead, Died & Dying
• Dead, Died & Dying

I have seen dragons
I've seen death on the ledge
I've seen forsaken
I've seen dying and dead

all of these words, they mean harm to our minds
focus on life not on time that we die
if you went now, if the farm you could buy
would you choose love or would you give up trying?

I have seen magic
I've seen death on the side
I've seen endangered
I've seen dying and died

and I miss the ones who've died or left me behind

I have slayed dragons
I looked death in the eyes.....

all of these words, they mean harm to our minds
focus on life not on time that we die
if you went now, if the farm you could buy
would you choose love or would you give up trying?

and I miss the ones who've died or left me behind...
Track Name: Nur tote Fische
• Nur tote Fische schwimmen mit dem Strom

Only dead fish swim with the stream,
you'd have to be
useless ...

Only tame sharks don't wanna eat,
they're trained to be

Useless ... hopeless ... dead fish

We think for ourselves
We don't need your help
We can help ourselves
We know well

I am alive, I swim against
I am aware and don't consent

Useless ... hopeless ... dead fish

You wonder why I'm adamant
to be like you, a detriment

useless ... hopeless ... dead fish

50 feet over me, there stands the tallest tree
wondering who has been stealing his greenery
meanwhile the traffic confesses, it's murdering
and screams at the tree, while stealing the air we breathe

We think for ourselves
We don't need your help
We can help ourselves
We know well

We think for ourselves
how deep we do delve
We can help ourselves
We the whelp

Nur tote Fische schwimmen mit dem Strom

Only dead fish swim with the stream
you'd have to be

Useless ... hopeless ... dead fish

We think for ourselves
how deep we do delve
We can help ourselves
We the whelp
Track Name: Mole
• Mole
I'm high yet underground
the smoke's just pouring out
you thought you'd kill me, how?!
I tunnel inside out

down under, I'm thunder
I know what love's about
the devastating hating cloud

why won't you dig me out
why does this tunnel cave in
what is it all about
why am I destined to live

inside, I'm all about
I smoke and hug it out
it heals upon my brow
I'm loving underground

down under I'm thunder
the stars are the wonder
I give my body out
the penetrating agent now

why won't you dig me out
why does this tunnel cave in
what is it all about
why am I destined to live

oh, follow me in
if you can
slow, Unearthly grin
medicine
Zoned, just a Bit
music man
ode to happenstance
we begin
Track Name: Antonyms
• Antonyms

planted seeds to grow
not to die, you know
I've lost the need to hold
instead, I let it go
antonym for full

give, take
love, hate
leave, stay

planted feet and soul
all I need's to hold
I've cost my loved ones so
it hurts to be this broke
antonym for float

peace, pain
lose, save
chance, fate

where has the magic gone?
who's left to carry on?
what's the opposite response?
Track Name: Dusk
• Dusk

this may be the last time I see your glow
and you know...

in the dark, I'm at peace with who I am
for in my heart I know just where I stand

and you'll be back...
imagine that!

this may be the last time you let me go
and you know...
this may be the last time I see your glow...

this may be the last time I see your glow
and you know...

in the dark I'm at peace with who I am
for in my heart I know just where I stand

and you'll be back,
or you'll wish you had...

this may be the last time you let me go
and you know...

this may be the last time I see your glow...
