Sad eyes grow verdant Lush from the rain Don't make me nervous I can't shoot straight Good time hyenas Sprung from their cage Someone sunk a file in their wedding cake Now they're on the prowl making new mistakes Lonely makes a spark that lights the fuse Pull the plug and lose your life support blues Trash in the alley Fuzz on the scene Uncanny valley Girls drink for free Put them in the shed Hands don't come clean Dressed to the the teeth Drenched to the skin Skin paper thin Blood in the water when they fell in Too deep too fast too learned to swim I should have tried to save 'em But I let 'em drowned I should have amputated Now it's rotting off I should have barricaded But I let them in I should have never let it Boil down to this Put 'em on the saw The soft pulse machine

Thrust in the shadows Three sided bayonet Bound to strangers though battles Through the hi-gloss shades of red Lipstick on her teeth again Packs of escaped criminals Run through the wild expanse Owls scratching at my window The night stains my steel resolve Deep inside I know it's wrong When you live your life in limbo Nothing tames the pangs of love No result Cabin fever setting in Nostalgia razors slash this braided rope Back into threads Draw the drapes and paint the window Never see the light again Patterns keep her under skin In my blood In my bones In my head Empty vessels make the most sound Living in a future ghost town Abandon ship is all I hear Silence is so crystal clear In the woods at night You're not safe without the sound In the pines above Her parliament of owls Tracks you down In a bed of needles Beyond the safety of your lies Every dose of hope is lethal Every word a knife Always on the lam Forever nursing wounded limbs Never innocent again Again my life governed by A sisterhood of birds in flight They're wise Who am I Swinging from their gallows (Red) Dead beats repeat from rounded wings Their call is deep and stuttering My body hurts my mind is weak I've lost control it's plain to see My life governed by A sisterhood of birds in flight They're wise Who am I Swinging from their gallows

Leaves drain Snipers set the snares of love Thirsty rifles trained The iron's hot When the slow turn kills the light And the watercolor dries black The green flash owls glide along the House of traps It's easy hunting There's always something Crawling in the dirt Press my breath away Severed edge sharpening White noise white waste Leveled under your command Numb hands to the sun These city streets are overrun One by one Exsanguinated by their love Death from above The strings are cut Roots pulled from the dirt Return to the earth with haunting thirst With every absent drop they burn Chained to the memory In the mock mirage Roses pressed in poems past The leaves and thorns her camouflage Hiding in the house of traps She's a minefield She's a tiger trap She's a tripwire She's a cargo net She's a deadfall She's a pressure plate She's a spiked wall A living memory Tied to the sound Forever lost Forever bound Tied to the sound When the traps clamp down I can feel her ghost In the cries of animals Trying to free themselves Tied to the sound When the sun goes down I can feel her ghost The night hag atop the stone Slowly crushing my lungs Tied to the sound Roots pulled from the dirt Return to the earth with haunting thirst With every absent drop they burn Chained to the memory

drag beach 05:09
We jumped the fence and walked the tracks Dog-day cicadas in heat White water crashed beneath the bridge We crawled to cross They found a body on the beach Ran through the jungle to the pixelated blood That shantytown is full of creeps Barefoot we rode our bikes and shot our fireworks and fought back the sleep Bees on the open comb When new dangers threaten to bury them They wave Drag beach don't let me go I'm still afraid Summers with cousins Summer's for carving names into trees Jackknifes and BB guns and romantic dreams But nothing could cure the disease And when his father died It ripped us apart at the seams And when his father died It ripped us apart Bees on the open comb When new dangers threaten to bury them They wave Drag beach don't let me go Out on the beach Mellow a demon syrup Out on the tracks alone Fuzzy and bruised like a peach Hellfire thread through the arm Nothing repeats No easy target for a firearm to rely on Out on the beach Sink like a bullet in a cobalt sea You can fight against the current But you're too deep to reach Electric fences Shock you to sleep You can fight against the current But you're too deep to reach A spray of flowers No remains to be seen And the film on the reel isn't nearly complete Out on the beach Out of our reach

In my new house Number fifteen Turquoise and dirt wears a houndstooth dress The silk noose perfume of cold flesh sick with thrills Is deadly If you're poisoned by her quills She's a magnet for fires She commands the heat burning gasoline Catching roving eyes I can't compete with the matches poised to strike Got a Heart of wax Sculpted by our heated past Her name is carved with the barks of vagrant dogs Drawing arsonists to ignite her vacant house She's a magnet for fires She commands the heat burning gasoline Catching roving eyes I can't compete with the matches poised to strike And I'd die again for the chance to burn alive Gray mesa of the vague Smoke signals haze over the open range Obscured my faith degrades Now the sleep temple is a palace full of incendiary things And the totem pole where I hide my strength lays splintered in decay Melt the sands of time to placid pool Hide beneath sheen I need an exit sign to guide my way Guide my way I can't escape the memory It's part of me now She cauterized my injuries No bleeding her out Echo the flame the night is on fire Sleep under sheets of acid rain Echo the flame Echo the flame the night is on fire I can't resist I need to break the plane Hands in pain I can feel her, feel her again In flames I can feel her, feel her again In vain I can feel her, feel her again Ashamed I can feel her, feel her Caught in the iron jaws of repeat dreams I need an amputation Set me free She's a magnet for fires

Warp like a siren through white sheets of sleep A dungeon's a dungeon no matter the key Disintegrate reanimate and brush the dust way Everyone's shockproof until they're afraid Get me to prison and don't spare the horse I'm raked over coals and I'm swept under carpet Up to my neck Down to my last breath Up to my neck Dug in a foxhole with all of my choices Tied up and crippled by all my devices No more infirmaries I'll drink from the hose Weak flowers in heavy rain Bang bang Back down in your hole Shoot from the hip no purity ring Blankets of pollen are falling on me Sink to new depths as I slip Chip on my shoulder Bird on my lip

Buried all my living secrets in a hail of lead There's no way in and no way out Once her spell takes effect She sees the ocean I see sand Crushed by devotion In the palm of her hand She sees the reason I see red Crashed into every wall around her Never made a dent Our names were only meant for trees and wet cement There's no way in and no way out once her spell takes effect She sees the ocean I see sand Crushed by devotion In the palm of her hand She sees the reason I see red Crashed into every wall around her Never made a dent Slip out of frame Fall through the floorboards Torn page tacked to a fantasy Paling in the shade beneath her Slip out of frame Fall through the floorboards Tangled in a web of gray I can feel the footsteps on my future grave You found your drug I found my poison Down there in the deep All torn up and everything Slowly derailing in the black light of her hex Three feet of ribbon tied in knots and I'm a wreck I fight to focus on the truth in all this mess I laid the track and brought this axe upon my neck She don't find it necessary Fan every flame hell-bent for leather I don't know my own machinery I don't know how to act No talisman to fend off all her fatal Familiars Wilt in her floral scenery I don't know how to act Slowly derailing in the black light of her hex Three feet of ribbon tied in knots and I'm a wreck I fight to focus on the truth in all this mess I laid the track and brought this axe upon my neck You found your drug I found my poison Down there in the deep All torn up and everything

Stray magnetic fields vibrate the case The transformer hums After hours when the power is real And the rain shimmers on the slums Don't steal it away amnesia When the morning comes Leave the pins and needles in the doll So I can feel them all Head is reeling Static takes a shape Stolen moments blooming The colors of decay Streets echo loose gravel Traffic noise like ocean waves Stop, rewind, replay the tape Left right left right left Light pollution lead the way I was followed home by familiar shadows Fingers dragging 'cross a chain link fence Eyes drawn to stark white walls Revealed by the resonance I caught a glimpse Head is reeling Static takes a shape Stolen moments blooming The colors of decay Head is reeling Static takes a shape In the pain there's healing I can't let these moments go to waste I don't want new souvenirs Mine are perfect broken I don't need new souvenirs I can't throw these things away Slowly fading through the years I can't throw these things away Slowly drying all the tears I can't throw these things away Night blooms day decays Time heals colors fade Past lives I can't let them separate and Slip away Night blooms day decays Time heals colors fade Past lives I can't let them separate and Slip away
