Track Name: Templeton
The distance as it grows
out in front of us
Yet we watch it. Did we care ?
Not at all .
In denial, we portray
just a shell of what
was fake. and wrong
all along

the perpetual
state of fear
from all that I hear
and I bare
as I stare
at the dark

no comfort
no resolve
only gets absolved
when the whole
fucking thing
blows apart

it's understated
(the) irrational decisions
not acquitted
and take over your life

Not misbehaving
just emotional bull shit
Im understanding
not thinking in time

Let's find a resolution
lets find a resolution quick
I need a solution
I really need a solution
to get outta this

Are you listening
do you hear

no comfort
no resolve
only gets absolved
when the whole
fucking thing
blows apart

(You gotta cut )
Cut the cords
Track Name: Phone
A disparaging motion
aired out - ears aloud
a silence that everyone fears

our bonds break beyond yawns
and contact awry
disconnected and never near

Since this you’d sever
All hopes have gone to rot

And without regret
Won’t hedge my bets
Yet you want a second shot

You play the back and forth
Yet you don’t reveal a voice.

Why’d it come to this
It’s not hit or miss
Show the door, I’ll make the choice

Conversing behind the lines
leads me to little lies
just call me back, when you can

who would resort to this
living so counterfeit
don’t’ come back, it’s the end

Why's it when I make noise
Suddenly you have a voice?

what's the catch today?
there's no empathy?
not a face to face

you're not being real
just keep stringing me
I can't stand it

that's what you've brought forth
that's what
you've brought
I won't need a second thought.
Track Name: Columns
Settle down
cut the reason from loss
severed right down the line

on the surface / context
little blurry / no less
semi-crested spite of their design

seek out the skeptics
I've said before
I'll plant new seeds instead

Rattled up
on a dry bank and what
happens right between the eyes

saddle up
for the next dixie cup
battle crimes from fight to fight
and you're on time

try to fish out the subtext
or plant new seeds instead

Defy the anthem, defy
We're seeking out skeptics
In bright columns of light
Bouts to feel so neurotic
Awry the item - am I
Wearing right down
Track Name: Wilderness
Now we must pretend
to embrace the wilderness
To destroy monotony
To welcome the abyss

Although darness can't survive
In the presence of light
Light will not thrive
without the path darkness provides
This sacred make believe
Assimilating wilderness
somehow we succeed
to forget our mindlessness

We must be lost
To find the way.
