Remington 02:48
It don’t seem to be much more than he could ever be A stature wrought among the stars In every eye all swollen dry so cast outside It’s sentimental as a scar A sacred sun to come undone It’s so damn fun and all familiar as a wave And maybe he won’t notice me if I go for free Never the same Shivering all afraid Souls in the way Every single day
Shores 03:39
You’ll never see what the sea could be You’re paralyzed with everything outside of me And all you need to know, it’s not eternity And that’s the way it’s supposed to be You’ll never hear what the sea could try to say Legs upon the edges of a rocky bay You’re staring at the tide as it rolls, recede and cries It’s all a wash if you close your eyes Don’t let it seep into you mind Just relish in the fantasy and times of crime And in it you will find a page of blacked out lines Copy them until they shine You’ll never see me bleed Cerebellum petrified ossuary And all you need to know is it don’t come for free I guess I’ll see you in my dreams Oh, so cold and so long, and high as home and I don’t know Higher notions of everlasting love Where do you see yourself in five year? I don’t fucking know. Higher notions of everlasting love
CSA 03:44
Uncouth of a bricklayer Silence now In sterile halls, no time befalls Sullen, frozen Holding onto Earth and oxygen To care but not know how All the world will be your enemy, prince of 1000 enemies Whenever they catch you they will kill you But first they must catch you Open eyelids somber to display them And half the world comes dancing in And I’m to weak to hold your hand Oh so cruel Lay them open Cast beneath the trading winds again From there forgotten now Lead so bleak Hope will come to know what this will mean But they just don’t know how Two little babies lying alone One did die but the other would grow, to love ones not unlike herself Was there in morning to take up your time Blue cup, wooden spoon and toothless smile Just a shaking the spine of your patience all divide But now you’re gone A family wasting away, forever lost
Cerumen 06:33
Eyelids shelter to shade Untold violence precipitate Errors unseen before Via vantage of kitchen floor I will seek to salve my wounds in haste of mind, to close to the moon And feel alright You are a liar which is more than I can say for myself Openly I have not much to say, It is hard to be on when you’re so far away from me Golden rays unfold so strange, forever yours to rearrange Eve to islands Too guarded amongst other things the soul will grow and them I’m awake Without a home to vacate or plea to take El-ahrairah sees more than I could know Unlucky one, so meek and slow Openly I have not much to say, It is hard to be on when you’re so far away from me
Meeble 02:28
It was all in my head anyway Coming back forward to know He’s alright or ok, more than enough to be told What a coward, such a fake Not the sentry he set out to make Thief of wicker and lace Time put that child in his place Away All today Go away All today Anytime I’m around you’re away That’s the way I’d like it to stay Cloud mouth, stammering Or just saving face Broken lyre, empty vial wasted space Drown in that mire you’ve made No more blight, only know Go Away All today Go away All today
Forlorn light, thought Charlie left me in the night They concealed, held shut my eyes to make it real Dwelled for days on cleanthly souls and empty cage Let me be, open up my heart and let me bleed Crying art Sweet Charlie and I torn apart
