Track Name: Formation
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
Track Name: Across The Sky
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
Track Name: Raining Down Ether
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
Track Name: Have You?
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 …
Track Name: Horde of Flies
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
Track Name: Iron and Coke
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
Track Name: Supplicants Of Light
White abstract forms
Flit around an orange
Glowing filament
Of blackened cord

Flitting
Swaying
Silent
Beating

Feeding
Supplicants of Light

Drips of molten wax
Trace veins down a
Crude column
Pooling at the bottom

Supplicants of Light

Supplicants of Light

Flanked by strange
Primitive creatures
Flitting lightwings
Fuzzy visage

Matte segmented eyes
Curled antennae
Feeling for a chance
To drink again

Supplicants of Light

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

Supplicants of Light

Photon addicts
Benevolent creatures
Flying mindful beings
Foraging through the night
