Track Name: Chrysanthemum
You'd plant a seed in my mouth
Deep rooted, Pain had knocked me out
Severed soul, circus act
battered ourselves. can't retract

then it blooms
chrysanthemum
can't remove
what's been done

This illusion wrecked through my head
It's time I (be) thru with it

When you seek rude attention
Words & insults : no need to mention that you'd
declare
half facts
and you act on
bad acts

And I'm sick of singing all about that

you get what you want
and you know how to taunt
lost my face on this
must replace with


With the blooms
chrysanthemum
can't remove
what's been done

Roots will loosen, when you're ready to lose them
Roots will loosen, when you're ready to let them go
so let it go
let it go
Track Name: Hearing For
Things we had were fine
Never felt more perfect

Repeatedly
You turn and flee
Cautiously deserting
I wonder

What comes a problem
Living in the past
I’m here and now
You’re there in doubt
Hearing for a clue, void of past
How’s this to last

I know you have battles goin’ on
I want to help you fight through every one

Yeah, its true. I’m scared as you
But I want to help you make it through

Everything was goin’ fine
Never felt more perfect

Repeatedly
You turn and flee
Irrationally. Without me
I wonder

What comes a problem
Living in the past
I’m here and now
You’re there in doubt
Hearing for a clue , void your past
How’s this to last

If you’d see
How much this means to me
Wouldn’t be so shaken up
It’s all up to you
No matter what you do
I can’t be ashamed if you

Dole out the pink slips
If you don’t have the patience for
Seeing through the slighted fear of past

I’ll get by . Hoping that you’d try
Try to make it. make it by my side

What comes a problem
Living in the past
I’m here and now
You’re there in doubt
Hearing for a clue , void your past
How’s this to last
Track Name: Deep Pocket
Settle down
for the lemon squalls are
healing hearts this time
I leave up to no one
and you just leave
for a better life

hope you find your picket fences
Safer from the squalls
Same for my second chances
They were wrong

Holding down
In deep pockets, I seek
rain to flush away
sour soil and volumes
of whats gone wrong

Even though,
You break off, while we make
Called it
heartfelt song
Mirrors what remains
and you broke it

for the reasons why
not begone
the rise and fall, was all along
another one, cut me off
and that's all
I called to say goodbye
good bye

Settle down
for the lemon squalls are
healing hearts this time
I'll leave up to no one
for a better life
Track Name: Foley
Don't play pretend
I haven't cauterized the past tense
'cause in the end
I bleed away the abscess

what your counterfeiting
what your erasing for foley
you can't remake
all did back is history

disposable emotion
you listing lies are dried up

Go, blackballing
the ones who loved you despite of
you cowering in shame of
discourse misled off of regrets
this sophomore trail drawing
you boast as if you had the knowledge
It's a hole you dug in our sides
maybe you just needed the bed rest.

what your counterfeiting
what your erasing for foley
you can't remake
all did back is history
Track Name: Cypress
Arms are twisted
Been learning to take in
Salt winds have been
Beating me down in my head
Like the cypress
Adapts to the placement

Gets through the night

Been blasted out. So cold
This sobering pain gets old
No sense self deceiving
Best I start believe in me

Fuck insecurities
I know I can purely be
Right. Repair the bent limb
Live in now / time to live

Sometimes you
can’t make what you make up

Sometimes you
can break through the shell and give up
Best that I
start trying to break us
Or lose it all.


Been blasted out. So cold
This sobering pain gets old
No sense self deceiving
Best I start believe in me

Fuck insecurities
I know I can purely be
Right. Repair the bent limb
Live in now / time to live

I’ve warped myself
Away from the lines
I’ve dreamt

Now rebuild
Adapt to the form
I’m dealt

Battered and
Bloodshot eyes
Still regal and
Full of life

Scents stronger than
That of death
It’s not like there’s nothing left.
Track Name: Origami
They come to town – breaking down
All the walls in the city falls in on itself
For the profits or demands
While all the neighbors on the land get the bad end sale

Don’t you come to our home and then
Make it your own
Its no sale (no sale)
Petty profits don't pay

These paper tigers Fake origami places Buying out the town Making us a circus. So say


What you say is
You can’t see it from my house
Derail
The system gets bought out, we sank to the bottom

What you bring up
Smoke, mirrors, and façade
The Tell Tale
truly Bleeds out. yet we’ll see through the battle

We see through deceit and lies
As they devise and they’re ripping the buildings down
Selling business and a paper crown
No sale No Sale No Sale No Sale

They’re using opinions as
Misleading science facts
Evade the laws as passed
Leaving all residents repressed

Pushing elbows in this town won't last
Flush the wake out of this staff , those (are) dishonest.

What you say is
You can’t see it from my house
We bewail.
To let you reside . Watch you sink to the bottom.

What you bring up
Smoke, mirrors, and façade
The TellTale truly Bleeds out. And we’ll see through the battle
We will stand up and will see through the battle

We see through deceit and lies
As they devise and they’re ripping the buildings down
Selling business and a paper crown
It's no sale. No Sale
