Track Name: Partystarter
Partystarter
How could a guy so wrong make everybody’s night so right? So, right before, he came to bring the party to life and the night’s still young.
We never stood a chance from your infectious ways. Mistakes; but now I’ve cooked it. And now you’ve lost your voice, I think we lost our shit. Fired up. Fucked up.
So throw your problems down and your stubbies high, and drink to every time he tries to ruin your life...and the night’s still young.
Track Name: Fence and Wall
Fence and Wall
There are so many avenues to those not burdened by the truth. You came and you tried to broker peace into broken pieces.
And now we’ve found solid footing on dry ground. If you send us back they’ll be waiting for us there.
What home? Why won’t the faceless cowards and racists unwrite the word of Howard years? Why won’t the faceless cowards and racists scrub clean the stain of Hanson fears?
We were lost, an endless sea, with no options left to choose because we did nothing wrong but the department took us back between fence, between wall to sit and wait until the end.
Now we’ve found solid footing on dry ground. If you send us back they’ll be waiting for us there. Between fence and wall to sit and wait until the end.
Track Name: Birdman
Birdman (Feat. Atom Simpson)
Cut your teeth on me, bite down until it bleeds. Let the poison run exposing your disdain. The lies you sold won’t bury me again. You can’t look me in the eye.
Your deeds cut across the sky line. Low lying cloud.
What is real? Take the fangs out while I heal. The hate burns up inside when you hang me out to dry. But I ruminate on the way you castigate. Laid bare: a subterfuge to bite and bleed out all those you can use.
Your deeds cut through these shortcut streets. There’s nothing left to hide beneath ‘cause what goes around will come to face you in time. Your deeds cut through.
(You can try to, but you won’t outlast). You can try to burn my name, but you won’t burn out my last name, and you can’t look me in the eye.
Your deeds cut through these shortcut streets. Your deeds cut across the sky line. There’s nowhere left.
Track Name: Panacea
Panacea
Breaking out to the springs above the city lights. Feel the disappointment. Breathing out smoke that dances with the Southern clouds before the wind takes it away, but it isn’t slowing down. Panacea or a sea of gin? Looks so small from here.
Take me out of this violent here and now, from this desperation. I’m missing the calm from within. Take me out to a place where my shallow lungs can breathe.
My blood is thinning out, thaws me out until I feel my heartbeat slowing down. Cavalier fools laid bare.
Take me out of this violent here and now, where this disappointment is tearing me down from within. Take me out to a place where my shallow lungs can breathe. Just breathe.
Track Name: Where Chestnut Horses Sank
Where Chestnut Horses Sank
Hey, this fell sound blankets this town. Hey, this fell sound cracks through the stone. Brooding clouds. Don’t look back. Whitecaps turn black, reaching the point’s Eastern shore.
Hills. The hills. Cutting through hills. Hills. The hills. Run to the hills.
Silent words fall from their lips. Statues carved in shadow. In this final breath the land becomes the sea. Memories of providence.
Ten thousand leaves spread over ink black water.
Candles to finally warm their weathered hands, colder from holding rooftops down. Once cremated the dust will be revealed.
Ten thousand leaves with no home. Ten thousand leaves spread over ink black water.
Track Name: Two Days
Two Days
Diamond fields: morning frost. Winter’s breath and black horizons scrape away. Shards of light breaking clouds; please don’t let this be my last breath of the day.
I’m not who you knew before office walls and bloodhounds started closing in. Eight fucking hours a day; a storm of voices blows their splinters in the hurricane.
Panic pressing on my skin, like eternity crushing in on me.
Time burns for youth lost and wanting. The second hand ticks louder everyday, and so it goes. Night winds bring warnings rendered truthful by the years. Don’t say that you haven’t been warned.
Asleep awake. Time spent staring into space. Splash cold water on my face. Breathe, don’t asphyxiate. What’s left isn’t yours; for you to take.
No answers, no clue, I’m running out of faith; faith in you. Who’ll pay me now? Who’s gonna save me?
I’ve got nothing to fear.
Time burns for youth lost and wanting. The second hand brings warnings rendered truthful by the years.
