Track Name: Stone Mountain
The constellate
From the holes in the ceiling
My blurred vision
Stretched out like a spring
Am I incidence
Am I nothing


Through the
Sea of faces we made
A faulty memory
That I live


A face of granite
Northern
The view felt violent by itself
I feel violent now


An army knife
A back pocket
Falling asleep


Carefully
Placing


You where the granite
I was northern views
violent by myself
I feel so violent now


Breath in
Don't let me out
Track Name: Pressure Cracks
In a flask
Falling back
I thought of how you used to rush in
I'd react to you scattering clothes
Across my body
I drank all the wine that you left in sight

I guess
I was feeling alright

Drowning in a barrique
I have slowly sunk into
Lost and a stray
The focus rolls
an uncreased hand on a shoulder blade
You can clear out anything
You want

In a flask
Falling back
Remember how you use to rush in
I'd react to you scattering clothes
Across my body
I drank all the wine that you left in sight

I lost a lung that night
Shouting
At anything invested in you

Drowning in a barrique
I have slowly sunk into
Lost or a stray
The focus rolls
an uncreased hand on a shoulder blade
You can clear out anything
You want

A side of you I've
Never seen
An apse still leaning
Track Name: Deck Fire
Have I been too worried
Am I just holes in streets
I can't sleep
Cooped up on torn upholstery

Vinyl left alone
A tie on the floor

Always off
Felt always

Vinyl left alone
A tie on the floor
Your suitcase
Is half empty

Does my memory
Still seem fake
Sewn into fabric of jeans

I'm watching shade
Shift into hardwood floors
Open door
Inside I wait
For something
To pull my face

Does my memory
Still seem fake
Sewn into fabric of jeans
Track Name: Chess
When the dust settled down
I swear I smelled graphite throughout the house
I let the dog in
Then I cleared out empties
From a bedside table

But I doubt it
Considering
That I've amounted
So far to nothing
I'd climb a wicker gate
Fear I can't pull myself out of bed
I'd climb that wicket gate
To the back steps of your house


Save me from the spreadsheets
My brain is feeling empty
Erasing
It's too abrasive to make up my mind
When I don't got one

I don't got one
I don't got one
Confrontation
I'm showing my teeth

But I doubt it
Considering
That I've amounted
So far to nothing
I'd climb a wicker gate
Fear I can't pull myself out of bed
I'd climb that wicket gate
To a back steps of your house
Track Name: Smog
I was lying
You never weighted me down
A hardwood floor I should have forgotten by now
What's got into me?
My foolish self
Lacking oxygen to breathe in now

From the floor the foundation
A body bleak
Caught up in the roof again

When I measure it out
Head in the sink
When I figured it out

I watched stairs as hands moved up
The atmosphere clung to the air

Is your face in everything?

I was lying
Life felt off and I was down
A carpet floor I should have forgotten by now
What's go into me
Off a shelf
Left in the lawn
Without oxygen to breathe in now

Regarding this I'm
Regarding this I'm
I feel out of it
Track Name: New Venom
If I replace my face
Imagining all the cities I would see
By now it makes sense
Chords are stressed
My copper is spent

Up all night
Just sit this one out
Past tense I still feel weight
Hanging over me

Spring colour on walls
Is the spring in my step

Rippled water
A plane bored over the lake hanging on
A fixed up message
These unwritten letters
Maybe it's me

Im over this faulty head
Scaling to the roof again
A further fleet I cannot stretch
But I look forward to it
I'm seeing rain
Slamming against
A raised ceiling
Left in a daze
Track Name: 1979
Running a sink on a wound
I couldn't move I felt the weight of the gravel above in my head space
Rattling loose
I got to used to fighting
Against it

In the morning
The storm came in
I swear I felt the shift
Weighing me down

Beneath the surface
Your workings
It confirmed
Yeah well
Maybe I'm losing it

Arch, you bent back for me
From cracked concrete
This disbelief
That I live in

Time in self
her eyes
I'm so fried

Running a sink on a wound
I couldn't move feeling the weight of the gravel above in my head space
Rattling lose
I got to use to fighting
Against it

Time in self
Alright
I'm so fried
Track Name: Notch
As I unfold at home
I was too tied up at work
A television
Broadcasting

A drape holds back
The snow you drive in
If the drape could just hold back
The rest of the evening

Faint, overtake
faulty breaking
Static array of the windshield

It's no use
Taking this view in
My skewed vision
That I'm stuck with

In the morning
I watched crows swarming the front lawn
Early Saturday
In the morning
I couldn't leave the bed
Like a pillow beneath my head
I stayed in
Track Name: Wolf Planet
After too many drinks
I cleared out the rest of the clothes

A palm dragging slow
As I tarnish the place
Tripped again
Falling out of place after this all
Growing rust in a room I fell into

I fell in and out

I feel lost space
High ceiling

After too many drinks
I cleared out the rest of the clothes

If you had stayed
A growing fear with be city
If you had stayed
A growing fear with the city
If you had stayed I might not be afraid of the city
Track Name: Landlord
Through a window
You framed a building on Albert Street
Traced floor plans along the ceiling

Chaos
Order
Structure
Surrounding everything

Caught up in the smile lines
Drawn into a pale facade
Climbing to the roof for a better view

Lost light
From the window
To houses below like
Grey eyes
On the houses

Measure mahogany
In flash backs
You had

Grace in her autumn skin
These flash backs
Worse than

Bracing
Winds of
Winter
Like she
Used to

Chaos
Order
Structure
Surrounding everything

Stuck in her autumn skin
Reinforced along the surfaces
