Track Name: Time Goes
As we walk along the shoreline just at dusk
The shadow of an arrow falls on us
I resist you, but your heart is in the right
We were lovers in another frame of mind
We are looking at ourselves through a wax lens
That are humbly enforcing our amends
I've got a brother somewhere in the night
We is wading through the river to the light

Hell fire running through the open beaches
Surf boards draining denim leaving wilted leaches
High up on a pedestal the empty preaches
Hark, away
Up all night staring at the ink soaked page
A ladder reaching upwards to a muddy haze
Of minds that just emptied and floated away
Left us dishonest and vague

The time goes when you're doing nothing

With your camera through intoxicating light
Trying to trap the world inside your gaze
We reclaimed some of ourselves from all the blaze
That meanders through our minds on colder days
With tunnel vision when you run towards the soul
Of whatever imaginary you may know

Plot's unfolding in the lonely eve
Perfect nights bled away like ink
Dishes rotting in the babbling sink
Run away
Wash your mouth out until the words dissolve
Scream and kick and fight until the lightning stops
Think in third person until your eyes get gone
Dream, dream on

The time goes when you're doing nothing
Track Name: Sabotage
You have siphoned all my best
That's ok, we'll just trash the rest
Fuel yourself on your ego
It's so bright
You are a star that shines
I tell you all the time
Be assured, rest assured

You tell me go home to get some rest
Because I'm not thinking straight, everything is just a test
In the meantime, you're rolling on the floor
In the wealth you earned
But the wealth you forged
Be assured, rest assured

I tried to end this
Like breathing, we need it
Lifeboats like magnets
We puncture to bury ourselves

With our fingers deep in the ground
And our faces covered in mud
Watch our homes be born out of sand
With our hearts we rise
All these roofs of denial
Be assured, rest assured

I tried to end this
Like breathing, we need it
Lifeboats like magnets
We puncture to bury ourselves

Sabotage
Track Name: Stick Stone
don't know how to word this
like the first time you heard it
don't lose it's meaning

you're absence always haunts me
is this what we wanted?
stick stone just distance

I'm tired of holding hands
girl hold my heart
I'm trying to be a man
but it's hard when we're apart
can't wait to be back in your arms

see I used to worry
thought it's too much for me
I can't take the heart ache

that look is never blurry
it says 'boy don't worry'
our hearts touch the ceiling

I'm tired of holding hands
girl hold my heart
I'm trying to be a man
but it's hard when we're apart
can't wait to be back in your arms

can't wait to be back in your arms
Track Name: Pillar
Look at the people outside
They're beautiful
They're all the things I'd like to be

Always hiding from the wild
We're kind of pitiful
I would like to cross but quietly

All these loves to reconcile
I'm under control
But it feels as though no one lies next to me

Well, we should look at how we frame it
But I don't care, I just wish to escape it
And you didn't notice when I was getting home

And all these things we build just to break them
And all these lives we fake just to take them
And you didn't care, we were on our own

Take a look at your unpredictability
And now you don't look twice at me
Tell me who is your pillar?
Because now you are no longer family

Well, we should look at how we frame it
But I don't care, I just wish to escape it
And you didn't notice when I was getting home

And all these things we build just to break them
And all these lives we fake just to take them
And you didn't care, we were on our own.
Track Name: City Banks
When the city banks empty out 
It’s no mystery, the kings and queens
Standing there against the grain

Mathy eyes trained to look away

Paper spindles handing out a sermon 
For the age of doubt



Mythic histories leave us bowing in our disbelief

We wait for the fog to lift
In the morning roads of the turning earth



And the discarded gods sit at their altars
In the shadows of the buildings that will ruin our brothers
We try our hardest to disappea behind the words we’ve created

To sedate each fear



When the systems start to run themselves

You take a seat, put up your feet

And watch as your beautiful child lifts a pillow to your face
Track Name: Intuition
life without me it is possible
as time grows on it seems logical
to see my face be replaced

all those pictures mean nothing now
all this time you've been asking how
I think you know I think it shows

follow your intuition
follow your intuition

don't cry you know what side I'm on (follow your intuition)
no lies, it's more what you have done (follow your intuition)

(I know you better than anyone ever and I know you'll hold on)
life without me it is possible
as time grows on it seems logical
to see my face be replaced

all those pictures mean nothing now
all this time you've been asking how
I think you know I think it shows

follow your intuition
follow your intuition

don't cry you know what side I'm on (follow your intuition)
no lies, it's more what you have done (follow your intuition)
don't cry you know what side I'm on (follow your intuition)
those scars will show how far you've come
Track Name: Memo
Work all day to fall asleep
Just to wake and yawn and eat
The same old shit but we repeat
I don't care

Mom and dad, it's all they want
To live your life all on your own
So bite your lip, there's nothing wrong
I don't care

But my muse is you
No time to lose
The King is dread, wanting his bread
Let's pound our fist into the bed
And get up, get up

Simple minds and bodies meet
We shake our hands and drag our feet
Nodding heads, our smiles meek
I don't care

Days we spend in a dream
Living modestly within our means
These lines are drawn, draw you away from me
What is there?
Air

But my muse is you
No time to lose
The King is dread, wanting his bread
Let's pound our fist into the bed
And get up
Track Name: Oh Beautiful Impermanence
Neck craned and feeding off the bones of the conquered
Set to depletion of the heirs
Feet planted firmly in the graves of ancestors
Distance undid despair

And we all fall

Sickle's expectant at the head of the table
Messiahs are suckling what is bare
Parades plague the peasants in the dirt of the stables
Northbound they soon shall fare
Where ill fed billionaires go bravely to their death
The frontier left

And they all fall
Track Name: Drugs and Gin
what's going on in that head of yours?
you're so quiet I can see that you're growing
remember that one time you told me?

sometimes people see you for who you really are
don't go crazy, if you feel lonely, know that I'm not that far

let your clarity hold you up
it's so blinding makes me feel like forgiving
be the first to see let your heart see

no holding back you're just warming up
let all your stories make your words sting
and let your voice ring and your chords sing

sometimes people see you for who you really are
don't go crazy, if you feel lonely, know that I'm not that far

sometimes people see you for who you really are
don't go crazy, if you feel lonely, know that I'm not that far

sometimes people see you for who you really are
don't go crazy, if you feel lonely, know that I'm not that far

you do your drugs n' I'll drink my gin
at least you're not lonely
you do your drugs n' I'll drink my gin
at least you're not lonely
you do your drugs n' I'll drink my gin
at least you're not lonely
you do your drugs n' I'll drink my gin
Track Name: Center Street
Running from what you know
Thinking one hit and you can go
It was what he did
Not what you thought he'd say

Friends all around me are pulling out their teeth
Just can't figure out: boy, what's your misery?
Run to where you're noticed
Is it all a game?

Emptied out my pockets
Just to help you feel safe
Worried you're going to pull a fast one
Please, don't run away

No, you shouldn't of said that
No, you shouldn't of done that
But here I lay, crying at your feet

You hurt me, okay
Please, let me say
I will not admit defeat

Friends all around me are pulling out their teeth
Just can't figure out: boy, what's your misery?
Run to where you're noticed
Is it all a game?

We are your family.
Track Name: House on Fire
so the truth it comes out
a little booze and he comes out
it's more about you and how she can't live without you

his confidence builds him
how much can confidence give him?
it's more about you and how she can't live without you

he plants his fears like tumours
don't be afraid to lose her

this house is on fire
you can't hide your desires

this house is on fire
you can't hide your desires

so the truth it comes out
a little booze and he comes out
it's more about you and how she can't live without you

his confidence builds him
how much can confidence give him?
it's more about you and how she can't live without you

and if I played like jimmy
maybe you'd pay to see me

this house is on fire
you can't hide your desires

this house is on fire
you can't hide your desires

now that I am gone and free
can't blind us with your charity
I'm done with insincerity
so don't you fucking lie to me
