Track Name: The Birds
ring, ring me up
to the top
to where you pulled out all the feathers from the dust
to a room
a caccoon

where did you pull out all the feathers from the bird

speak to decide what is real what is lies
to decide what is real
what is lies

sink, sinking in
to the brim
and always organizing ways we can destroy
what they built
flaying stilts

where did you pull out all the feathers from the bird

speak to decide what is real what is lies
to decide what is real
what is lies
Track Name: Need to Feed
sent into trees and then its gone
this piece was so hard to find
wet and falling apart the more I try
it dries it dries it dries

hard it is to separate so hard
hard it is to separate so hard

in time you’ll
it was me you need
shine a light a light for me
it was me you needed

tradition feeds and then it’s gone
so ceremonial
sacrificing animals to gods
oh god how can it be
your perfect in every way
perfect in every way

in time you’ll see
it was me you need
shine a light a light for me
i know where you’ll be

i need to feed
i need to feed
feed upon
whats left and what is done
Track Name: Metallic Gaze
metallic gaze and stare
it’s harsh it moves is flutters
search for connections ill repaired
it’s hard enough to function

frozen but not

rooms they bulge and fill
open up to let me in
sit against the tired door
the room is all but spent and thin

frozen but not

paint peeling off it’s peeling off
lead chips lead face let’s eat it all
Track Name: Follow Suit
when my friends have all run out I’ll ask
how did I get here
when my money has all dried up to dust
how did I get here

when my family has packed their things and left
how did I get here

wait your turn
follow suit
wear a tie

when I get the pictures all set up
now I belong here
when I understand the way I live I”ll know now I belong here
when I get the picture its all clear, now I belong here

wait your turn
follow suit
wear a tie
Track Name: Demonlike
hello where do you go
i'm drowning here in you
from the gallows that your hung
from the gallows that you swung

hello where do you go
i’m drowning here in you
from the grave stones that you laid
to the death toll that you paid
Track Name: Missing
in the afternoon
i said aloud
where is my mom she’s suppose to be hear by
now and then there came a knock

a friendly voice
asking who I…

why did I answer
who could have told me to know better
i can recall the rain

but who I am, I don’t even know my name
he took my hand and led me straight
to white pickup and picked me
up ahead we drove real quickly
he bruised my legs, said no one would miss me

why did I answer
who could have told me to know better
i can recall the rain
but who I am, I don’t even know my name
Track Name: Suck All Their Blood
from underground
the roots of trees
restless hands and jagged teeth
demon breath and evil knees
come for me, come for me

friends of death
they never sleep
protecting ills
through soiled sheets

make belief
raw and cold
hang in the breeze
and come for me

loosing the feeling
run for your life
break all their legs
suck all their blood
it isn’t enough

primal need ripping skin
hunt to breath the nearest kin
fight to live
fight to know

how can this be
you come for me
Track Name: Hay Fever
fightning striking eyes and sending all the fear to fall
connected to a dream of painting up the bedroom wall
garbage bags and makeup cover faces unseen
i'm wait for you, I’ll wait for the wild and the spew

see it on my face
see it on my face
don’t want to be replaced
pouring out fever high you and i

light are melting ice and tar within the blacked room
never thinking forward and beyond all we do
i'm a rocking chair a wrecking ball you aim to please
as I lay down to wash your bloody fingers still

see it on my face
see it on my face
don’t want to be replaced
pouring out fever high you and i
Track Name: Simile Like Me
attempt to symbolize
all the metaphors
and similes like me
as planes to see

attempt to symbolize
and similes likes eyes
i see the truth disguised

ionce was lost
but now I knew
attempting these metaphors
to symbolize you
Track Name: Push and Pull
push and pull
the light goes out
i’m here until
we’re older now

don’t take off my dress
and explain the way you care
i don’t want all that I had
i want nothing else

push and pull
the body aches
hung from the highest ledge
to falter about

learn from the best
see through your walls
see your walls

just lie to me and tell me all your
tallest tails that lead me to the
nearest fall I told you I can’t fall
let me go
i can’t fall
let me go
