Track Name: The Only Cure, the Only Remedy
This time I tried to plagiarize a smile to show the lightness of heart
But the first glance dismantled the part of heart and gut.

The grin, to the clear eyes that mirrored me
The grin, to the black eyes that mirrored me

Carving a smile out of droning words and colors
Fabricate laughter and the sanity of self
Because the lie of this life is the lie of all the useless sorrow
That feeds this want and brings rise to error

Why must it be? The only cure, the only remedy

I tried again to undertake a small spot of yearning (the longing, the lust)
But the second trial failed to stop the part of heart and gut

These thoughts tenfold, flashing chemicals for a new day
Slow the blood, dam the flood
The maddest of minds, the maddest of times
Bereft of dismay
I stand and fight nothing
Track Name: Let Thirst the Soil
Is it dead below?
There is no seed, no grow
No water flows when tides are low

Scare the sea, it's easy!
Let thirst the soil!
To collide each time is taunting

It is dead below
There is no seed, no grow
No water flows when tides are low

A sea of spite, it's teasing waves
Love is drowned again

Ride the sea of spite
Lichen lives, love is drowned (again)
Track Name: One-Thousand Wolves
I have nothing to say that will change the way
Of the hand that led me through
The days rolled on in heart and song
But the wordless plight was due

Time was lost in excited bliss
The poison kiss of love, I miss
Remember the flame, remember the dark
Remember the day, it made its mark

So sew the seed before it bleeds
Sever the root that will taint the seeds

Enough clues have ensued to bring an answer forth
Awoke from a dream to our landfill
That is overflowing with shit

I have nothing to say that will change the way
Of the hand that led me through
The days rolled on in heart and song
But the wordless plight was due

The keeper of secrets has let the wicked free
Unchained is the lock to our diary

The eyes have cried one-thousand wolves
The lips unraveled more

So I have nothing to say that will change the way
Of the hand that led me through
The days rolled on in heart and song
But the wordless fight was due
Track Name: Why Conquer?
When you paint this town red, why not do it from your veins
Let torrential tears of silver salt wash away the stains

Be not concerned with petty things like pain or shame or fear
Let these gutters swallow secrets your simple self held dear
Free the buried stones

When the last call has bled you thin, rest on the shoulder of ever sin
Remember there’s no endeavor worth all the worry of the dour mind

When you yearn to switch the light to dim
This known condition will not detain you
From the sunrise of each day of blame
From the sunset and each night in vain, each night insane

Why conquer? Why solve? Why conquer what cannot evolve?
If you pick apart the one who bellows fire under everyone
Time will not heal the hearts of the dumb

When you paint this town red, why not do it from your veins
Track Name: In the Greenest Maze
I crave the waste - buried and forgotten
Hidden - in the greenest maze
Cremate - all this embitterment
Still - alive in the earth

Going over what was once benighted
Etched in stone
Etched in skin

Fallen ghosts through time proved this curse of mine

I crave the skies - lost stars you pointed to
I saw their haze - I felt their warning
I felt their chill - and I fell apart
I heard them say - “It will never be the same”

Going over what was once benighted

I swore this time
Before the chills come
A shield will glaze over
To hide these questioning eyes

I begged and pleaded, I cried a storm like the foolish do
I swore the chills this time
Will forlorn all seasons that raise the blood to boil
I swore upon this molten heart
A mountain grew, a path was built, a belief was granted
It was given like a gift

Fallen ghosts through time proved this curse of mine
That has echoed many more to hear and die

Rereading
What was once forgotten
Etched in stone
Etched in skin

Fallen ghosts through time
Proved this curse of mine
For all to hear and wonder why
Track Name: Time Wounds All Heels
Back and forth, confusion’s turning
The future path is burning
From sun to purging rain
These organs drop from loss to gain
The soul was halved, the quest uncertain
A new belief was needed
And there is time, more than you need to know

The plan was cheated!

Rise out of the reverie and sway the mastery
Ascend from the history, abide to the mystery

The fool is waning not to be the last one to see

The heart is growing
It has room to give everything
It’s not a thing one can learn
To sigh or to yearn?
Awake from the dream now

Rise out of the reverie and sway the mastery

What was learned from what was dreamed
Is that longest hour in the shortest year
Has been life’s only theme
Track Name: Aging Ghost
No will or want on this day... this day, this moment

I’m a ghost and I’ve heard it too many times
The corn cried
A blanket flew into the sky

And still, so what? On this day... this day... disappointment

I’m a ghost and I’ve heard it too many times
The corn cried
A blanket flew into the sky
