Track Name: Nothing New
There is nothing new
There is nothing you could do
That someone hasn't thought through
And you hold these things with muddy fingers
Muttering, "Why has it gone away--
from me?"
Living in this endless season
Living just enough to be
S'enough for me
Living just enough for me

Who can hold their breath,
When there isn't that much left
When there isn't half the depth and
What is, is sold and taken and the rest is doomed to death
"It's gone away from me"
Living in this endless season
Living just enough to be
S'enough for me
Living just enough for me

Living just enough
Right now
Living just enough

Live your life
Live your dream (living just enough)
Track Name: Daylight Savings
We've got a brick of love
It will build a pyramid that will stand forever
Will the mortar be enough?
Do you think the sands of time will hold it together?

You and the record store baby
You shy
Away, removed from direct light saving
Your own lives
And trees can't grow when the old one's are shading
Your eyes
And some of us won't survive daylight savings

Confined by our chemical needs
Peace lilly having indigo dreams by the window
And into all other things
The astral plane is just a way to explain the science of shinto

You and the record store baby
You shy,
Away removed from direct light saving
Your own lives
And trees can't grow when the old one's are shading
Your eyes
And some of us won't survive daylight savings
Track Name: Power Hunger
Power Hunger

We need to eat to stay alive, the earth and salt
are ground beneath the dancing feet in the Kings' halls

Eager Beavers

They're fighting for the fattest teat up on the hog,
They're getting sick from all the milk their greedy jaws

Living on crumbs you get leaner everyday,
Meaner the miser the more that you will pay,
Put you away,
We all will pay.

Power Hunger

I waste away and try to rise above the thoughts,
It's hard to block the sound of chomping on the crops,

Creature Comforts

If I get sick an example of me be made,
All my mistakes they will take the key and throw away

Living on crumbs you get leaner everyday,
Meaner the miser the more that you will pay,
If I get sick an example of me be made,
All my mistakes they will take the key and throw away
Put you away,
We all will pay.
Track Name: House of Cats
Got one great wish
A wriggling fish
Bottom feeding
That's just my thing

Very used to hand me down's
It's such a niche
It's catatonic, so it's not speaking,
Must be a snitch
I feel bad so I feel like I deserve something rich
So I go out walking into this bitch city

Found the boutique
Got to look chic
In the glass case
Feline mystique

Got to make some money for the House of Cats
It might be strange but far from funny in the House of Cats
The gold light makes the dim seem sunny
When I look back
At the House of Cats
At the House of Cats
At the House of Cats

Even now, in my mind
It's overkill, it's set to blind
Even though I can't find,
The master of this dead design
Even now, in my mind
It's hieroglyphics all the time
Even though I can't find,
The master of this dead design

Even my heart is open
In the House of Cats
What's lost cannot be broken
In the House of Cats
What's not cannot be spoken
In the House of Cats
In the House of Cats
In the House of Cats
In the House of Cats
Track Name: Dog Girl
Dog girl
Staring at the cover of a magazine
Ease the pain
With a day dream
A clean white fantasy

Dog girl
Stealing glances at someone across the room
Glistening
White teeth and shiny hair
Doesn't mean to stare
Up into the sky
Ask the reason why
She's a dog girl
Track Name: Real Life
I close my eyes at night and I can see it burn
All the black piles are the things we thought we'd learned
The facts at last decay to trash and food for worms
The dark red dirt ready to till and start over

Is this the real life? battered and deep-fried
greasy fingers reaching for a taste
Is this the real life? they'll watch the blood dry
sitting back to profit on the waste

Glistening coils black like oil on white sand
The serpent ate but never sate
a tail that knows no end

Is this the real life? battered and deep-fried
greasy fingers reaching for a taste
Is this the real life? they'll watch the blood dry
sitting back to profit on the waste
Track Name: Stay With Me
Would you like to eat some food and watch TV?
Maybe after we'll enact the birds and bees
Oh please just stay with me
Please won't you stay with me

Then we'll drift off into a dull painless sleep
You'll dream of marriage, I won't dream a single thing
Oh please just stay with me
Please won't you stay with me

We'll fill each other's voids quite regularly
But it's a trap and thats a fact but won't you please oh please just
Stay with me
Please won't you stay with me
Track Name: Dynasty
I am troubled
Deeply humbled
By the aftermath of greed
Now I can be
Who I was born to be
Dynasty is fighting
Over all the tithings
You were hiding in a safe
Where is the grace
An outcome of the waste

In every holy book
You never came up once I looked
Nothing but a
Broken promise ring
I lost mine years ago
Took more time to let it go
Nothing
I've stopped promising

Truth in question
Reject every lesson
Dissect the harmony
And you will see
Your individuality
Who is born with
Pure divine essence
And endlessly karma free
Not any being
Not you or me

In every holy book
You never came up once I looked
Nothing but a
Broken promise ring
I lost mine years ago
Took more time to let it go
Nothing
I've stopped promising

All the way home
So still
All the way home
Now they're covering up your body
All the way home
So still
All the way home
Now your running round in circles
Track Name: Laundry
We never really want to do anything any of the things that we're supposed to do
You're looking in my eyes and I can tell you are a thing I'm not supposed to do
I had a whole load of laundry to do but I have a mistake that I need to see through

We never really want to be any of the things that we don't want to be
We're coming face to face and bending to an ugly curiosity
I have a whole load of laundry to do
I'm sure you'll see me and I'm sure I'll see you...
Track Name: Wedding/Bedding
Am I gonna have to pass you by?
Look into eyes and say goodbye?
And you haven't even left this place
We walk the block always opposite ways

I ring your bell
Theres someone else
I ditch the door
Compose myself
The silhouette
A grayish man
You pull him in
Holding his hand

There will be a wedding
Handfuls rice confetti
Find me on your side
Make eyes, say goodbye

"And with this ring I do thee wed
To never share another bed
I choose a place- a time and space
You rang my bell little too late
I pruned your brach, this one to grow
Yours was messy, I'm sure you know
See you sometime around the block
Retracing steps and pretty thoughts
Track Name: Human Gradient
The mind is cut like a diamond
Though the rhinestones are behind
And when it channeled right through me
I already knew of this design
Don't hesitate to remember
The embers of your time
Nothing is forever
Before and after life

When you were born you made her old
Extracting radiance
You will return to the cold
Human gradients

Once, so young and so tender
Surrendering all that might
Be sometimes such an illusion
An institution of the mind
Don't hesitate to reenter
The unmeasured way of time
Nothing is forever
Before and after life

When you were born
You made her old
Extracting radiance
You will return to the cold
Human gradients
Track Name: Furry Thing
This is the one thing that matters
This is the one thing I'm after
Theres a musty smell that I can't lose though I'm sure there are other things I would like to do

Running through the woods for some game
Then I'll set it free but leave it maimed
A gaunt pale tracker tracking endlessly
the prints of a furry thing that he set free
Track Name: Slip Inside Me
Walked into the woods
And heard the tiny voice
Thought to sell my soul
In bargain for some bread
A fool I followed tracks
Right down the darkened path
The center of the rot at last

The gristle and the bone
I heard them cleanly snap
The sound it turned the hairs
On end upon my back
And as I turned the bend
The wolf was in my path
I waited for the end
And opening his jaws at last, said
"Slip inside me"
