Track Name: Sarah
as you're read your last rites
think about your children
think about your lack of life
think of your religion
it's all a lie!
live in fear! live in fear!
only the scared disappear

mother, your words fell on deaf ears
mother, tell yourself the truth for the first time in years

you used my trust as a tourniquet
to keep your life at bay
like King Solomon
you kept your riches stashed away
famine has come over
my body cowardly faints
can I shake this off?
can I sweat this out?

mother, your words fell on deaf ears
mother, tell yourself the truth for the first time in years
Track Name: Paint
paint a picture of your perfect life
stare at it until your blind
settling in a familiar place
for all of your days
in fear of what change might bring
it might bring you down
forgive me for failing
it was never my intention
kept myself at a distance
in fear you'd let me down too
Track Name: Underbelly
i'll scoop my eyes out with a spoon
so nobody can see my soul
we grieve behind the masks of your kin
now you can eat us whole
this stomach of dishonesty
has digested us slow
now your offspring
is finally letting go

your seeds flourish me
now I'm hollow too
Track Name: Distant Brother
brother, i love you
brother, i love you, but i don't know you

i don't know what to do
you don't know what i'm going through
i don't know what to do
and i don't know what you're going through
Track Name: Sovereign State
i was desperate for attention
a sad excuse of a man
set my cast for affection
roll in my empty reel
the salt-scented nostalgia
and stale ideas
rusted away my faithless heart
decay and fade

a cancer gnawing away
at my sovereign state (of mind)
strip me of my crown
in my sovereign state (of mind)
Track Name: Sunlit Spirit
you're the notes that are too scared to sing
you're the chords that are too weak to ring
pray to the god that you've never believed in
because you're in deep kid, hurry, learn to swim

our spirits were sunlit
now a dim lit awning
we're anchored to the thought
of our ill-fated mornings

don't live like peter and turn the others in
quiet down, hear those distant foreign hymns
you're leaving through the door that you'd never thought you'd walk in
brother, i love you
let's see this til' the end

our spirits were sunlit
now a dim lit awning
we're anchored to the thought
of our ill-fated mornings
Track Name: Brass Head
your porous trust
your sacred ground
your candied paranoia
grasping your soul
your brass head
your fear of change
your intelligence
swallowed by itself
your selfish ways
your razor tongue
your stone shoulders
jaded your kin
you put on a front
you hide behind it
you're sadly...
mistaking us for fools

father, it's time for truth
now tell me everything
and i'll tell you
father, sorrow's root
your seeds flourish me
now i'm hollow too

your brass head
your jaded kin
those ten years
that we'll never get back again

father, it's time for truth
now tell me everything
and i'll tell you
father, sorrow's root
your seeds flourish me
now i'm hollow too
