Track Name: Bye Bye Bantam
oh baby
I know you try so hard to love me
just like in the awful night dreams
the suns come up so we can breathe
give me my medicine
I know you want it too
I know you’ll see it through
I know you want it to be true

dead when we leave falling like the trees
frozen is the earth beneath my feet
you are the ends I am the means
lets let it go oh you know exactly what I mean
awaken from a dream
it's staring back at me
while the sounds sleep so soundly
beneath the shade and the salty breeze

compressed into a shell
like a home you’ll do so well
just snug enough to shelter my body
on my knees I need your body
but I can’t condone
all the plight that we won’t own
it couldn’t kill us to leave ourselves alone
it couldn’t kill us to leave ourselves alone
alone all
all alone
all alone
inhale the smoke
try not to choke
I know it's not a joke
you wanna know
you're not alone
you're not alone
you're not alone
you're not alone
Track Name: Rat Race
I try so damn hard
but it always seems to evade me in my dreams
elevated but can’t seem to make out the catastrophe
sold out my soul chase it back anti-gravity

on the soles of my boots wrapped in cellophane
the tiny insects inside of my brain
invisible lines set just to contain
all abandoned hopes and middle names

ampersand filled with rage disengage embrace
the cataclysmic vibrations of the inner self no age
only time can tell when it will all fall into place
all the while I colonize my dreams in outer space


segregated from the sheepish rat race
achieve bliss I won’t quit or be displaced
admit these days it's all the same anyways
weird and strange I can’t explain
but anyways
but anyways

is it an illusion or is it eluding
to the morbid nature of the wounded ground
as we walk around the clambering sound
stampede grazing out loud
proud of hunger ignoring the thundering
crowds

segregated from the sheepish rat race
achieve bliss I won’t quit or be displaced
admit these days it's all the same anyways
weird and strange I can’t explain


umbrella get under shield your from the acid rain
foot in your mouth but the stars they all have names
destined for space call it insane
gaze into the concept of the infinite plane
between the lines between each and every phrase the silence I embrace.
no secrets to tell
no more fucks to give away
no gods no kings no crutch or clipp-ed wings
but anyways
Track Name: Watch & Learn
wrap me up in your arms
hold it tight before its gone
long ago i felt the warmth
hate to say its flown its coarse

wrap my head around your dreams
who am i to pre concieve
seems all so extreme to me
the webs we fight and live to weave

its a tragedy unfolded like maps ya see
ironically placed on top of of your head like john apple seed
but it doesn’t have to be so tattered and faded
all those illusions and scars you definitely made them
refuse to accept the laws of nature vs nurture
i must confess to me it all seems too blur in freaky colors
and travels at the sonic speed of future universes
but the udder disbelief of love is really what hurts us
can’t you see inside of the abyss you have created
floating around all those beliefs that you hold so sacred
is it the truth is it amends is it climactic change
could it be rearranged and put together in a way
so omni present the whole world will bleed it in their veins
juxtaposed with the raw emotion and don’t forget the pain
those who feel the remorse won’t refrain from the connection
just listen to the tone of the dialect and don’t fret just
