Track Name: Bottom Of The Sea
I visited the sea,
dared the waves
to drown me.
She swept me off my feet
and held me deep,
until I could
not
breathe.

If I do
if I do
if I do
everything you want me to do
would everything be alright?
From now on.

Would it be defeat
if I had you overpower me?
At the bottom of the sea…

She left me on a foreign beach
without a soul in sight
whatever will
whatever will become of me.
I'm a long long long way
from home
Track Name: Seventh Wave
I don’t want to hurt you
and its all about
what I want.
Give and Take -
there’s not much to trade.
I’m caught
in the seventh wave

you’re the only one
the only one who can hurt me

drag, drag me out
drag, drag me out
and have
all that you can
just drag me out
of the barren land

you’re the only one
only one who can move me

you’re the only one
the only one
Track Name: Cliffs
cliffs broken off
so violently into the sea
that we all gather ‘round
and call this knife edge “beauty”
see from beneath
how they cut the sky?
And so we climb
to the edge
to offer, and withdraw
our deaths.

Leaving the dead life
Losing the time,
don’t fight it.

Lover I am
just like you;
I don’t want to die.
Take me to that place
that we know I can realize
how high.
Somehow
I’m gonna rid myself
of the bugs
the bugs

Leaving the dead life
Losing the time,
don’t fight it.

Hot sun beating down,
the only god we know of
Strong wind from the east
kick me in the back of my knees
and I’ll be kneeling to the end
calling out

the daylight!
(you’re wrong it’s the dead life)
the daylight.
Track Name: One Hundred And Four Miles
the days, they take their toll on me
they take their toll on me
take their toll

and we’re getting old
faster than you know

I will remain at your feet
‘til you meet me
at the ground, the earth
the soil, the dirt;
in the cold world

the days take their toll on me
they take their toll
take their toll

and the days into weeks
to spin and rotate
for the gravity speaks
to make my bones weak

oh they take their toll on me
take their toll
and we’re getting old
faster than you know

you try to say
that we’re going somewhere
that we’re going straight,
but we just spin
and rotate
Track Name: 2am/6am
2am T.V
selling me purity
it caught me up
and guilty (the timing)

old christianity
and a brand new vacuum
can you really get it all
off of me?

white smile/paid actor
your dirty look at me
won’t get me on
my knees

for the dust inside
and dust throughout
I still find
cleaner air to breathe

its morning!
Its morning
and I’m leaving.
Track Name: Birthday
slowly unwinding the twine
I find a want, a want
for nothing

the empty space
inside the cardboard tube
A Great Huge
mess

let it spill
into the hallway,
throw it down
down the staircase
at the guests

and breathe it in
and breathe it out.

Slowly unwinding the twine
I find a want
a want…
