Keeping it all Frozen long before Sharing it all Keeping your secrets awake Keeping it all Frozen long before Sharing it all Keeping your secrets awake I threw you away Now I’m grasping back at you I threw you away Now I’m grasping back at you I threw you away Now I’m grasping back at you But it’s too late It’s too late Too many times before I haven’t seen you How far we’ve come Further and back again Too many times before I haven’t seen you How far we’ve come Further and back again I threw you away Now I’m grasping back at you I threw you away Now I’m grasping back at you But it’s too late It’s too late

Undertow into the dark Drowning in the deep Undertow into the dark Drowning in the deep The last one inside Is the last one alive Many ways to oblige A tall crushing tide She heard a fleeting voice Across the sky Flowing to another Magma line She stood in disbelief Of what she was hearing A crowless dynamite Atmospheric explosion Listen to your apathy Running through the room Listen to the gravity Endure the molten plume She stood in disbelief Of what she was hearing A crowless dynamite Atmospheric explosion The sky closed and burned A vast and glowing ember Crushing the spirit of all Living matter She is responsible But she can’t stop If she can’t identify She cuts right through it The sky closed and burned A vast and glowing ember Crushing the spirit of all Living matter She went on her way In silent drones An eerie vacant world Through rote motions Cleaning solution But the blood spilled Is our own Cut down by Our frightened hands She went on her way In silent drones An eerie vacant world Through rote motions Until the tides swept her away Out from under The tides swept her away Further under Undertow into the dark Drowning in the deep Undertow into the dark Drowning in the deep The sky closed and burned A vast and glowing ember Crushing the spirit of all Living matter Undertow into the dark Drowning in the deep Undertow into the dark Drowning in the deep

Ticking gently in your ears Awaiting transmission shortly Skin shines through Flailing all around you Asking for a longer stead Rejected by your own head Closer feelings closing in Can’t escape the pain within Handling your rejects Without any sense of pretext Foreign bodies entering And leaving fire in a ring Time is over, ring expires Fleeting melody inquires A full spectrum Shades of void Rays of darkness Piercing through the light Raining down ether Light-headed and disjointed Measuring your causal link May have pushed you to the brink Ratty steel wool ablaze Sparks, your face, a maze Not conducive to repose Slip into your Sunday clothes Gods of nuisance overlaid Payback will be back paid Tones of brilliant azure Nothing further can endure

Have You? 04:51
How’ve you Stopped it going All this time? How’ve you Stopped it all inside? How’ve you stopped it From your mind? Have you stopped it all now? Have you stopped it all now? Have you stopped it all now? Have you stopped it all now? How long have you Kept it going? How long have you Kept it going? How long have you Kept it all inside? How long have you Kept it all inside? How do you keep yourself alive? How do you keep yourself alive? How do you keep yourself alive? How do you keep yourself alive? How do you keep yourself alive? How do you keep yourself alive? How do you keep yourself alive? How do you keep yourself alive? How long have you kept it In your mind? How long have you stayed alive? Have you Kept it going all this time? Have you Stopped it all inside? You haven’t kept yourself alive. You haven’t kept yourself alive. You haven’t kept yourself alive. You haven’t kept yourself alive. You haven’t kept yourself alive. You haven’t kept yourself alive. You haven’t kept yourself alive. You haven’t kept yourself alive. You haven’t Kept it going all this time. You haven’t Kept it all inside. You lost yourself you are not alive. You lost yourself you are not alive. You lost yourself you are not alive. You lost yourself you are not alive. You lost …

Failing And flailing Grown alabaster stone Keeps falling around my footsteps Keeping time with an endless fury Fanciful devotion Cleanliness unspoken Shards of lives lie broken A horde of flies bespoken Clamping down on A steep boardwalk Entropy reigns long Into the night Timeless zones of motion A horticultural notion Oddly clinical potion Trials of minimal devotion Traipsing along the skirts Appearing more or less unhurt Until the skies unfold berzerk Spills of chemical demurk Stains on eyes Telling me to step inside A long and meaningful aside Teaching us to pluralize How long will we be blind We feel an emptiness inside Try to fill it all with lies Killing us as we despise Killing us as we despise Killing us as we despise A corporate history of lies Killing me as I despise I’d like to find myself inside Killing us as we despise Killing us as we despise

A surge in elevation Rails of segmented steel Blustering past an old coal mine Rattling scraps of ore and tire Blackened sky Diffuse and shadowless Indeterminate sun Casting over Blackened eye A spiteful domain Of smoky men of coke And ore and creosote Shapeless through vapor Silent shifting over trestle Carrying its nameless cargo Long through the day and night Blackened eye A spiteful domain Inhabited by smoky Men of ore and coke Miles and miles Long runs of iron rail Over impossible peaks Through drilled earthen tunnels Blackened sky Diffuse and shadowless Indeterminate sun Casting over Blackened eye A spiteful domain Of smoky men of coke And ore and creosote A way through the lime And dusty grime Forcing its sway Long into the endless night Blackened sky Diffuse and shadowless Indeterminate sun Casting over Blackened eye A spiteful domain Of smoky men of coke And ore and creosote

White abstract forms Flit around an orange Glowing filament Of blackened cord Flitting Swaying Silent Beating Watching Feeding Supplicants of Light Flitting Swaying Silent Beating Watching Feeding Supplicants of Light Drips of molten wax Trace veins down a Crude column Pooling at the bottom Flitting Swaying Silent Beating Watching Feeding Supplicants of Light Flitting Swaying Silent Beating Watching Feeding Supplicants of Light Flanked by strange Primitive creatures Flitting lightwings Fuzzy visage Matte segmented eyes Curled antennae Feeling for a chance To drink again Flitting Swaying Silent Beating Watching Feeding Supplicants of Light Flitting Swaying Silent Beating Watching Feeding Supplicants of Light Godless circling Drawn in closer Toward the source Of warmth and glow Settling nearby Absorbing their fill From dew drops Tiny proboscis Flitting Swaying Silent Beating Watching Feeding Supplicants of Light Flitting Swaying Silent Beating Watching Feeding Supplicants of Light Photon addicts Benevolent creatures Flying mindful beings Foraging through the night Supplicants Supplicants Supplicants of Light Flitting Swaying Silent Beating Watching Feeding Supplicants of Light Flitting Swaying Silent Beating Watching Feeding Supplicants of Light

about
