Track Name: Trade Ambition
>> lyrics <<
Try not to make a scene
of their wandering
And settle for a draw
They trade ambition for a good night’s sleep
Under the medicine they don’t need me
Not one of them
will ever see
I bring bombs to a knife party
Not one of them will ever see
I bring bombs to a knife party

The sound
and fury
feel safe when we are not alone
But don’t deceive yourself
A walking shadow, man
A bleeding heart and
the blood will not touch anybody’s hands
A walking shadow, man
A bleeding heart and
the blood will not touch anybody

Surrounded by no-lives
All the new cemeteries are made of quicksand
Hands remain unclean
transcripts of sacred scenes

Track Name: Pain Is Psychedelic
>> lyrics <<
The eyes of Mercury
That I was born to breathe
The texture of
The truth
The love
Is real
The pain, the pain, the pain
Is psychedelic

The future
I guard in* the dirt in my mind
The memories own my design
I can't close enough of my eyes

And at the bottom of my life
I will see my demon's eyes
Even the evil will always be alright
The universe does not include the earth
Track Name: INVALID
I can smell the burning of old times
I will taste the ash this summer

I’ve seen my life kneel down before my eyes

Poison; Narrated by sleep
Designed by the industry of love
Published in white
by ground up
free based
hesitation

I am a dead man left in a pit
I am a good boy, look how I sit
I am a dead man left in a pit
I am a good boy, look how I sit
I am…
dead man…
left in…
yeah...
good boy…
good boy…

My body will outlive my soul
My work will outlive my passion

I am invalid in the strange new world
