Track Name: Res Cogitans
Feet carried me to your door,
I could be leaving.

Half the time is not mine
I’ll try to find a way to underestimate my tithing
to the goddess that her lips create

You know, it’s all my fault

Feet carried me to your door,
I could be leaving.

I’ll push my luck
I’m a sick fuck
but my breath’s in a bottle of living figures breathing death

You get both and I thank you.

Why just the bottle?
I’m just the one trapped in an endless survival
a hurricane captured a
breathless arrival and all I could ask was to
save us a smile, I’d love to scream back that I’ll
stay here a while and everything followed as planned.

But it's all I could find in you
A half wit bastardized version of a prior self held fast
To standards that I'd once become as one

I'm not,
I'm not a confident approach to reasons undefined by progress
fifteen less but never next to you

All the matter more concerned
with tides that turned a record over, nothing skips
A faulty vein of ignorance comes clean

It must mean something else to me
It must mean something else to me
Track Name: Godhead
I've yet to be born from a planet yet to become
one of the greatest Earths to be known
the one that I call home
It's appalling that our dreams are just physical beings
but in the grand scheme of our things
Our things have no meaning
Nothing's what we've lost
I'm not the type to return a fallen and broken meteor
A failed galactic parcel of land
Bought from god himself
I know nobody else that could bring a burden oh so big
That bastard's malevolent

Take a swing at god I dare you
I'll just sit back and observe you
I'm not just another failure
You can't find your savior can you?
I'll put money on the latter
you're just as confused as I am
(Looking for a way out, but its just a way in.
Welcoming something more,
bringing in a higher state of consciousness,
electing in a godhead.)

Heard a knock on my door
obsession just serving some thoughts to endure
Am I venomous or the whole snake?
the anger you create?
I realize there’s fire in my freezing eyes
But I can’t stop staring if your eyes won’t meet mine
I’ve got time if you’re not mine

Looking for a way out, but its just a way in.
Welcoming something more,
bringing in a higher state of consciousness,
electing in a godhead.
Track Name: Owl Eyes
Needing owl eyes,
I'll still need you.
wiring our affection,
bandwidths exceeded,
with our intention.

Your eyes sleeping
but you knew the whole time.

Brought the choir,
found me just in time.
(found me just in time)
left bread crumbs to lead us back
now they're gone, could be lost...

Closed eyes intended that I'm left here,
if it dies now, it's all the same.

I'm just an drug addict,
Wannabe hopeless romantic,
Point me the way home,
I love you but I'm already gone.

I'm just an drug addict,
Wannabe hopeless romantic,
Point me the way home,
I love you but I'm already gone.
Track Name: Aeterna Veritas
Trapped in a mind with images blown wide open
Eyes just as blind as life without light
Let's die, I'm not the type to pass your skin by
(Pass your skin by)

I filled a home with nothing.
Broken ship at the bottom of the ocean.

A masochist with no heart, just red eyes.

Armed with a tight flesh appetite,
Im not strong so I might bite.
take my love affairs
rape them into a song
so everyone can scream along

Our problems girl are the same,
a mix of mediocre parallels,
I sit here and just keep sane.
The static in your pocket calls to you,
it knows your name.

I dare it to show it's face,
but its just a name.

If denied (if at all)
Im having anxiety on how I should curl up and die.
Pulling myself up, my hands are full.
Lose my grip and down I fall.
