Track Name: Scarlet Fever Bound
Look out of any window
Looking for what's standing at the door
Right where it was before
Walk through every door
Until it doesn't matter anymore
Not like it did before

They grew you up just to cut you down
Like you'd always be around

What's left of any fiber?
All the threads are pulling at the seams
It's exactly how it seems
Break bread with the survivors
Of childhood's broken melodies
Playing on the tape machine

If life is real we must burn it down
'Cause we're all scarlet fever bound
Track Name: Stone Dials
You'll arise, wake up one day to find
That you're all alone and it's time to survive
You'll try to grapple with the tides
But you'll only learn that you cannot slight the moon

Choose Time as the measurement of life
But the dials are all made of stone
The lines get longer all the time
But you'll stay to find that the world is in single file

All the pictures we'll take
All the smiles that we'll fake

Memories fade
Re-write themselves away
Track Name: Terrentoolah
The path to hell is a dangerous place
Daigoro's in the well now you'll get put in your place
Ogami Itto
No man steps in the same river twice
Especially not a lone wolf with a cub at his side
Ogami Itto
Everybody's staring at my face tonight
The giants of the world times the 20 of my eyes
Goliath bird-eater of the terrestrial type
I've got the hair of the wolf and the teeth for the bite
I'm terrentoolah
Track Name: Zephyr
My intentions so flimsy they could float to the sun
Incinerate and get cooked to well done
If the zephyr or vessel were to take a sudden dive
I would fall to the ground as I reach for the sky

I need

My fiber so flimsy could escape to the sky
I'm not reassured I'm not living a lie
If the years of devotion were just an alibi
I would rip out my heart and I'd throw it aside

I've no need
For these dreams
Track Name: Gordon Lightfoot
With eyes so bright and shining in the early morning rain
I danced with my Marie before she left me on that train

Mornings are for coffee evening is for the setting sun
Sleeping by yourself at night just ain't too much fun

With eyes so bright and shining in the early morning rain
I danced with my Marie before she left me on that train

Mornings are so hazy and the evenings knock me dead
These thoughts sound so much better when they stay inside my head
Track Name: The Genesis
I close my eyes when I'm talking to you because I just can't see what you're going through
I gouge my ears when you're talking to me because we used to be good and now I can't break free
It's just the's the beginning of the very end
It's just the genesis...from the cradle to the grave look at the messes we make
But nothing feels so right
Night terrors going to be home late I got the cold sweats but it feels so great
Night time but it's not so much waking life starts when I feel your touch
Oh what a loss...I guess we chained ourselves to the sun
A lot of feelings...from the cradle to the grave look at the messes we've made
I had come to the house, in a cave of trees,
Facing a sheer sky.
Everything moved,—a bell hung ready to strike,
Sun and reflection wheeled by.

When the bare eyes were before me
And the hissing hair,
Held up at a window, seen through a door.
The stiff bald eyes, the serpents on the forehead
Formed in the air.

This is a dead scene forever now.
Nothing will ever stir.
The end will never brighten it more than this,
Nor the rain blur.

The water will always fall, and will not fall,
And the tipped bell make no sound.
The grass will always be growing for hay
Deep on the ground.

And I shall stand here like a shadow
Under the great balanced day,
My eyes on the yellow dust, that was lifting in the wind,
And does not drift away.
Track Name: Life In a 2x4
I skipped the dreaming in favor of lowered hopes
I'm always walking on the dark side of the road
I'm desperately waiting for someone to call me
On my telephone and tell me all about the things that I'm doing wrong

The kingdom's calling ain't exactly how it looks
For what it's lacking is exactly what it's worth
I'm desperately waiting for someone to call me on my telephone
And tell me that this open wound will close
Track Name: Animal By Design
These sensations are just skin and bones
Not the legends or the lies we're told
All dressed up with everywhere to go
Amidst a strangely human glow
Tears to water, water to wine
Animal by design
Drink the seasons, yes, and take them in

There's a light I never dim or shield
I let it dictate what is real
El Espectro made the scene again
Who knows just where he's been?
Death to darkness, darkness to light
Real life personified
Drink the Seasons, yes, and take them in

Below the top...empty on the inside
Make it real, it's so funny for everybody
I'm no one now
Opposite and equal recollection is
Going to roll up one side and down the other
We'll be no one then
Track Name: Elder States
If I'm wound too tight
I won't mind your guiding light
If the feeling's right
You might find, me in the night
It's staring in and I'm looking out
There is no doubt I'm alone now

Coffin lid is tied
It's just foresight, I can see it die
All the tears I've cried are just a shameless lie
Just to get by
Well it's closing in and I can't get out
There can be no doubt You're with me now

These elder states...are going to break
