Track Name: glass skull
and it all keeps coming up
in conversations
i'm having with myself
on the outs
we fill these doubts
with all the thoughts you hold
with a skull made of glass
its easy you blew my mind

now the dead pile up
on your highway shoulders
cause the river was cut off
from the edge of the suburbs
and its only friendly fire
but it still bleeds the same
with a skull made of glass
its easy you knew my name

how do you hide a song
in a record for so long
from all I had become
the wall my foot stands on
to stop these spins
the record always wins
Track Name: horses mouth
break away
the smoke and grit
then just fade away
below tall tale sails

cause long teeth
they creep up quick
and I tried to pick you up with a horse's mouth
but the horse's mouth is cemented in
yeah the horse's mouth ain't coming through me

all at sea
and here I'm beached
the swell always finds a way to break every time

its just a mind set of brainwaves
yeah I don't know if I'm here or just in the wake
its just a mind set of brainwaves
yeah I don't know if I'm here or just in the wake
Track Name: outpatient
I'd pay it no mind
but my debt is still ahead and not behind me
its either motion sickness or static stillness
I seem to find

and id free myself from
this trap without gnawing off my arms
but I'm holding these ghostly bars
and its still not clear what side I'm on

either way ill still be
either an out patient or in
where did i turn in

id pay it no mind
but my debt is still ahead and not behind me
its either motion sickness or static stillness
Track Name: hollywood hermit
you called me out for trailing behind
a wild pack of mad to live minds
stop dead or start alive

the legs to run and a bending eye
the reason you left the countryside
long enough to want to buy in buy in

and as hard and as easy
as money from home
a Hollywood hermit
breaking wishbones alone

its all you get
no regret
cash in on your cold sweat
Track Name: crowd cocoon
hatching out in the futures sun
with blood in all directions
figure it out alone
piece it together on your own

your soul was left inside of your cocoon
a dead persons soul inside of you
now creeps through
and i can no longer follow you
or see your changes through

a hanging has come down
the crowd just gathers round
its hard to place my heart
when every stranger plays their part

your soul was left inside of your cocoon
a dead persons soul inside of you
now creeps through
and i can no longer follow you
or see your changes through
