Track Name: Doula
Day falls into another one and i'm lost
Hostage of this holy lens
A simple shape
A simple shape to come

I've been frozen to this spot
Cycle through these slipping years
Maybe if I hold my breath
Everything will disappear

Melt me down hollow universe and i'm born
Rip the stitch a broken arrow
I grow to fit
I grow to fit my grave

I've been frozen to this spot
Cycle through these slipping years
Maybe if I hold my breath
Everything will disappear
Track Name: Do the Invisible
Step on my neck, play this new death
Like a bomb through flesh it's a safe bet
Losing blood, pulling bullets from my best guess
Got a body on the table, is it breathing yet?

To scrape the bottom of the pit in your stomach
And wrap your silence in a tomb of promise
Rig the air to dupe your absence
Loss of function, this head's a madness

Cross your heart, let's do the invisible
Trick the crown, excite the unthinkable
I'll self destruct before I've fallen
The riots come quick in this standard of love
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love

Feel a little sick in the letdown
Losing my grip, could you spit me out?
The bells rush in and drag me down
I'm a cold cock in the first round
Repeating myself until I'm violently shrill
Believing my jaw is impossibly still
And I'll play a whore for these empty returns
Because living as numb is the passion I've learned

Cross your heart, let's do the invisible
Trick the crown, excite the unthinkable
I'll self destruct before I've fallen
The riots come quick in this standard of love
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love

Hung too high to see
The sadness in these tendencies
My body dropped and held in vitro
Carved a mark in the new low

Cross your heart, let's do the invisible
Trick the crown, excite the unthinkable
I'll self destruct before I've fallen
The riots come quick in this standard of love
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love
Track Name: Glory MT
my blood runs black
into imagined doom
rope cut wrists
set the burn to bloom

and i lay down on a bed of glass
one eye buried in the past
still breathing slow to trick the sensors
at the mercy of the shape the day makes

i am the light
crippled in descent
caught in the wheel
and turning us over
i always find
a way to let me down
glory mountain
glory mountain

useless sleep
come to cover me
losing touch
define the enemy

in my heart yes, i go numb
I build a hollow in the hum
still dressing up and going nowhere
mounted to this pedestal

i am the light
crippled in descent
caught in the wheel
and turning us over
i always find
a way to let me down
glory mountain
glory mountain

Down down down
Peel me out
rotting in the sun
Down down down

i am the light
crippled in descent
caught in the wheel
and turning us over
i always find
a way to let me down
glory mountain
glory mountain
Track Name: Xanax
i've got scars on my lips
where I flip and I bite them
been cutting up my stomach
on the edge of this mixed medicine
thoughts burrow in and they float at the top
try to suffocate scenarios
the breathing never stops

dose me dose me
yes my body is a choir
look closely closely
when your hands are full of sunshine
lonely lonely
im the passenger
and i need a quick trip out of my mind

i'm all cracks in the daylight
we just float yea we dont fight
call it crucial, call it quiet, call it keeping me sane
when god is in a bottle that is bearing your name

dose me dose me
yes my body is a choir
look closely closely
when your hands are full of sunshine
lonely lonely
im the passenger
and i need a quick trip out of my mind

hallelujah

cut off the circulation
and you're the king of a still and frozen
private nation
still youre questioning the dedication
of your nerves
are they holding up this isolation
Track Name: Letdown
Oh tiny chapel
you're the pattern that I breathe
collecting hollows
my skull crushed under the gravity
of a big empty star
a big empty star

I can't decide
if this feeling is just another letdown
air so dry
strips my mind
and leaves me bleeding in pieces on the ground

i'm all bruised up
inside this hum of memories
too paralyzed to cut this cycle at the knees
it's a big empty star
a big empty star

I can't decide
if this feeling is just another letdown
air so dry
strips my mind
and leaves me bleeding in pieces on the ground

i'm crawling on glass
in every new home

I can't decide
if this feeling is just another letdown
air so dry
strips my mind
and leaves me bleeding in pieces on the ground
Track Name: The Ghost in Me
home
in pieces and sighs
pacing rooms
leads softer bones
to shrivel up and die

and insect twitching
kick to start
draw a map to a dying star
cover my eyes and set me free
i'm leaving a trail of kerosene

into the light
the breathe i've held so long
lives to see another sun
i've got no crown upon my head
i've got no crown upon my head
just this pressure in my lungs

i rehearsed again
i rehearsed again
exhale and the fallout will expand
until we're ashes
run your fingers along the cracks
i've found no way to put them back
there is no magic, no chemistry
gravity release the ghost in me

into the light
the breathe i've held so long
lives to see another sun
i've got no crown upon my head
i've got no crown upon my head
just this pressure in my lungs
Track Name: Dead Wave
Hit him with a dead wave
on the cusp of freedom
still living under the fist
this thunder cracks my brain
and lets the rain in
nerves so shot i can
barely reach the season
and i'm left faking a limb
just an echo in the doorway
of a soldier growing dim

the swarm descends and
strips my bones and
the forest floor has over grown
this ugly nest i've built from stone
is dust i'm dust i'm dust i'm dust

angel
oh your light is sick
and the glow comes off the windows
and takes my heart with it
and i breath out this empty pit
the ghost implodes
my wings they fold
and aren't you cold?

Hit him with a dead wave
on the cusp of freedom
now this is the taste that i get
so i limp this weight i'm
hoarding pieces of a failing sun
and you can live like a coward
you can die like you're brave
you can climb to the top of this mountain
and wait
and youll wait
and youll wait
for that future to come

the swarm descends and
strips my bones and
the forest floor has over grown
this ugly nest i've built from stone
is dust i'm dust i'm dust i'm dust

angel
oh your light is sick
and the glow comes off the windows
and takes my heart with it
and i breath out this empty pit
the ghost implodes
my wings they fold
and aren't you cold?
Track Name: Supernature
take off your birthday mask
this hostage future is
long past the breaks
i'm a fever in the shutdown
your hands are in the cinders
opportunities rot away

what comfort are you searching for?
what comfort are you searching for?

oh, cease to grow
these dusty bones
turn the soil in summer
oh, we pass through slow
the cheapest hopes
glow underground

i can see forever
when i sleep
arms reach out for me
like the lies that i am told
skimming peace from overdrive
the coffin comes fur lined
and smolders on the road

what comfort are you searching for?
what comfort are you searching for?

oh, cease to grow
these dusty bones
turn the soil in summer
oh, we pass through slow
the cheapest hopes
glow underground
Track Name: Tomorrowland
Fix a tourniquet on the hemorrage
dreams slamming into a dead end
still life anxiety
oh bullet fragment memory
hung my bets on the trenches
yes, flooding into the wreckage
i count the exits out
so powerless and so devout

why you wanna go and mess with a good thing?
dressing up and whoring out this
cold that i've been keeping
closing ranks to harm the beleiving
kneel to the gun
today's the static i'm receiving

i want love that big
but i think i'm a liar
suffocate this fire
and i'm on to the next one
i'd give anything
to get out of this shadow
to climb up off this plateau
and i'm on to the next one

cities of tomorrow rise up in the setting sun
burying the errors until the engine is a hum
and now the softest circuit remains
trapped inside this spell
and everyday repeats itself
everyday repeats itself

why you wanna go and mess with a good thing?
dressing up and whoring out this
cold that i've been keeping
closing ranks to harm the beleiving
kneel to the gun
today's the static i'm receiving

i want love that big
but i think i'm a liar
suffocate this fire
and i'm on to the next one
i'd give anything
to get out of this shadow
to climb up off this plateau
and i'm on to the next one
