Track Name: Swallow
Faded skin, bleeding lips, sore eyes.

Swallow the pills.

My eyes are as wide as yours
We can see the beauty in each other

Swallow.
Track Name: Surrogate
Our hands meet across the ocean
under the pale moon's glow
Our faces surrogate to silver lining
as stars dance beneath our feet

We build a wall of our wounds
and we drown in each other
Our earthless faces buried deep
in mountains beyond hope

Forgiveness and sorrow
and hope and envy
Wounds and healing
and distance and time
and pain and love
in love.

Across the ocean,
under the moon
Through our wounds
we meet, again.
Track Name: Loss
Loss of your better self
Withered skin, crooked smile, broken eyes
Empty wish never granted

The leaves that fell around you, pale and white
Scar tissue of the soil beneath the waterless

I will walk you to the womb
We will find and hold your wings
Track Name: Waiting With You
I am waiting with you.
The sirens sound and I can't bear to listen.

I am waiting with you.

I'll die as a piss-stain on your bed.
Track Name: The Gatherer
I've failed you my dear

Bury me at my mothers' feet and curse me on my fathers' sin

How many stars you gathered, how many I destroyed

I am grey sky womb.
Track Name: Walls
Of earth, we are the same as we always were.

we pass away.

So they took our walls and they broke them apart
put blades to our wrists and destroyed our art
took our scripted conversations and wrote new parts
and now we can't breathe, lying cold in the dark

And now our hope is gone and our dreams are fading
we are far too weak for retaliating
So we raise the noose and we stand together
After tonight, we're all dead forever

We're all dead.

Everyone kill yourself.
