Track Name: I Dreamt I Died
i came from the caves
and now i’m going back
you can forget my name
so you can just relax

i’ve wandered so long
in this modern reverie

because i dreamt i died
because the cellar floor
with no sleep at night
with no sleep at all

i’ve wandered so long
in this modern reverie
we can borrow a mock civility
but we’ll hang the righteous at dawn

they storied paintings on the wall
all told in fire ash and water and blood
Track Name: Nothing Complete
these trusted organs
coughed up and spitting out
your body, baby it can’t save you
it’s a cracked adornment

wondering where all your dreams went?
i tell you nothing completes
how can you make a decision?
you’re cutting out

the testimony
your pledge to kill it out
the empty place set at the table
this feast a warning

wondering where all your dreams went?
i tell you nothing completes
how can you make a decision
when you’re cutting out?

you thought you’d chase the war; wash your face with rain
like this short evolution has somehow made you sane
no destiny, no time at all
to rest in this illusion; pretending you won’t fall
Track Name: Butcher's Block
my compromise is standing still
since you bit a mouthful off my will
put a bullet in deep in my head
and just shove me off this world
the blood i can carry in my veins
you will use to break me of my ways
reduce, redefine
to dilute and diminish every line but,

otherwise
it’s bleed on the butcher’s block for us
i want to die like an animal
the other side
is stealing the butcher’s block from us
dead in a chair and forgotten

our words the rounds shot in this war
now i’m bleeding on the kitchen floor
face down like the palm on the cheek
but still cutting to the marrow
the blood i can carry in my veins
you will use to break me of my ways
reduce, redefine
to dilute and diminish every line but,

otherwise
it’s bleed on the butcher’s block for us
i want to die like an animal
the other side
is stealing the butcher’s block from us
dead in a chair and forgotten

when my body breaks like a shell dissolving in the rain
you’re gonna taste my angry love
love
love
Track Name: Cover It Up
they call it a nation
they call it safe
but an instance of rebellion
is just to look upon the face
like poison seeds we’re turning under
now growing hate rows
they couldn’t see it,

now cover it up, we’ll settle
cover it up

we’re only asking how
they could find a way
to muffle the sound
of patriots shamed,
like poison seeds we’re turning under
now growing hate rows
they couldn’t see it.
we took your word
we bought your clothes
but while you’re sleeping
the tension grows…let it grow
can’t you feel it?
justice knows when it dies.

i pledge to watch it crumble
i pledge to climb the wall
monuments yield to redress
they are condemned to fall
and when they pull the curtain i’ll cut it up; cut it off the wall
1, 2, 3, GO

cover it up, we’ll settle
cover it up, we’ll settle
Track Name: Unbelievers
like falling up we’re
chasing invisible tails
the order on the page
never enough for the hunters chasing long
an antiquated rage

we aimed high
the unbelievers
a fire bright for so long must fade out
through white ways
we came to meet you
now we’re writing the prologue to faith

all of the voices
corrupted magical phrase
to take the pain away
looking to fear like
the whip that steers the flock
over the cliffs of shame

we aimed high
the unbelievers
a fire bright for so long must fade out
through white ways
we came to meet you
now we’re writing the prologue to faith

ohhhh
no, not convinced of it’s shape
ohhhh
no, not convinced you know all

like falling up we’re
chasing invisible tails
the order on the page
