Western Edge 01:17
i’m chomping at the broken searchlight while townsmen are falling off the quiet western edge we're on the western edge we're on the western edge
Let’s tear out this page and start anew I was eaten back to life in a human stew I was into the books but they steered me wrong: I banished the thing when it sang too long Over the void and into the books Where demons lurk because I can’t feel the pain Over the void and into the books Where demons lurk Where demons lurk
Spelunking 00:53
Water be my guide Through the dark in the maze Arise! Summon all the ghosts Cut away the light! Cut away the light
a huge variety of perfect plans across the land standing at the edge the sea: billions of mees marching with flags standing at the edge the sea...
postulate and carve a date for me this is just the way that it should be this is just a car this is just the dream and the dream’s a single town the giant heart of the mighty clown this just a carcass
my ghost moves slow in the pocket of the great big coat what keeps my head afloat don’t trust it not to go go go... coronated for so long didn't mean a thing didn't mean a thing hated for so long didn't feel a thing didn't feel a thing
I’ve got a secret plan for success and I’ve got to play it close to the vest I wrote NO but the answer was YES and I barely passed the test!
It Limps! 02:37
It limps! When you least expect it But you’ll never detect it It’s quiet and tiny It lives in the sea It limps! Through your house at night Always out of sight It changes things Not better, not worse... just different Whose side is it on? You decide. It limps.
Mud March 01:34
You were a brilliant boy surrounded by the dark You traded honesty for cupcakes and ice Forgot to name your hand in the frozen trailer park You wanted everything that was ugly and untrue Now I'll build these things for you: -a grass house -a stone arch alone in the mud march we'll live in the trees with your bones in the Mud March
Bells 01:35
all of the roadblocks on this dead end journey lost in the time zone and barking in the street
plink plink plink
There is a target in my creative heart you hit a bullseye every day with your empty commitments and your failure to run i won’t wait for inspiration
everyone is buzzing with maximum torso in the mythological lands of the polish grounds! I'm shredding my voices and sewing my patches you can't wave us out today don't save us, just take heed let's go! penny for your thoughts a childhood in envelopes la la la….
warning signs that i should've heeded now i lay alone, defeated “insta-kill,” the package said can't believe i wound up dead works like a charm, i rave! from beyond the grave
Trepanning 02:07
Drill a hole in your head Let us talk to the dead What pain from the other side You see them, they all died You see them, they all died Nighttime comes to Jersey Buried in the dark so greasy Woke up tied to a world of fallen spires Woke up so tired I need to fall back to sleep The dead can't walk with the weak Out of fear I beg for the sun I wait for the dawn to come (Though the daylight is under siege with no hope of victory drink in the warmth of the sun before the misery comes before the misery comes)
it'll be a wing zinger with you as the singer we'll be laughing 'til dark at the waterslide park we'll all be amazed by the devilish daze that will bring an elation on this fun vacation oh yes we'll have elation at this fun vacation
