Track Name: Past Tense
tears in the fabric, doors that can never be found
a piece of the story remains in the sound
travel through power lines and radio wires
forget about your fear of death for a while

wandering aimless streets in your college town
eyes staring wide at your feet on the ground
echoes of silent songs ring like ghosts
the moon is peeking in through your window
but your eyes stay closed
Track Name: Circles
magnify my expectaions
help me grow a part of me i've never known
all our righteous indignation
most of what i am is just for show

calcify my inhibition
i'm not scared of sleeping alone
all i have is my contrition
and the time it takes to grow the seeds you've sewn

ride your river of sun to avoid everyone
tributaries are veins to an ocean of flames
where we all float the same

i wish i was the one spinning circles with you

with your bare feet on the coast
(push my broken pieces into place)
every breeze carries ghosts
(your eyes can see every inch of space)
become that river of sun
(pain rides the crest of a wave)
til all your songs have been sung
(won't you please believe what i say?)

now we're part of the great cosmic something-or-other
every person on earth becomes a piece of each other
do you believe what i say?
do you believe what you do?
Track Name: Songbird
my green eyed songbird, sing to pass the time
knowing someday soon, you could always fly away
but you don't, you choose to stay
my green eyed songbird

making ourselves at home in andromeda's guest room
a neighbor's empty space never felt so much like you
wrapping books in butcher paper
i'm singing songs about your sister
oh wednesday, killing time
clean your room, ease your mind

weatherman, tell me the future
how are we to be anything less than you and me?
Track Name: Parade
watching the same parade from two different points of view
i might spend my whole night looking upwards for you

you were making plans before the world began
your thoughts are on the screen
paint them black and green

calculate the time it takes for cosmic seeds to grow
from parking lots and shopping malls
to galaxies for show

isolate the sunrise, present tense and past
weather vanes and still life
future still intact
Track Name: Slur
and i know you'll feel the ache when your halo starts to break
when i die, become the rain
indignation self-espressed, replicate our emptiness
when i die, become the rain

sleeping in seperate beds, but i'm baptized in your sweat

apostolic head aflame
though the end remains the same, it was built into the start
there's a whisper in your chest
temporary happiness for your nineteen-twenties heart

grey eyed thunderclaps dictate my relapse
Track Name: Concrete Bedsheets
one too many times your tongue, it forms advancing storms
and it struggles to find adjectives for the divine

and your hair turns grey before it all falls out
teeth decay before your heart gives out
ripped jeans reveal scraped knees over concrete bedsheets

tear out all of my pleasure points
my words are only noise
so spill the pity from your spine
your ego crashes into mine
Track Name: Present Tense
slide into me, embracing apathy
scabs on your heart, lay naked in the street

swallowing teeth
they fall out in my dreams
angels sneak into your room
trees bear fruit only for you

atoms remain, but the air is not the same
stairs to the sky are capillary veins

calculated pain
our dreams are the same
your breath in syncopated time
sonically identical to mine
souls are sideswiped on the sheets
skin is blistered from the heat
angels sneak into your dreams
erasing memories of me
