Track Name: Apply Care Directly
apply care directly

allergenic, my nose is running up to the corner drug store
you got a motel romance with yourself and cigarettes
expect the worst from you and accept the truth of certain conformance

smoking the filter, never wanted to end
speeding the collapse, lights flashing ahead
carnival's in town, follow the detour
don't want to be seen so i'll eat somebody else

allergenic, display's instinctual
at least when you're falling down you're not in the company of others
it takes so long you flow within it
i wanna feel like you yet i'm irresponsible know that it's habit forming
only i could pave this

i saw myself with feathers i molten, presently the glare is dull
eyes still itch, swollen tongue; you're what you eat
i cannot force the stars to align for me as i whine and wind a spinning top
Track Name: Conscience In Tumult
little broken
i left what you undid so i remember
fingerprints

claiming revolution, you’ve got some nerve
you know better that that
it does not break
does not hesitate

horses on fire, cantering over
they let wonder wander with dreams over yonder

you had a place in mind
you saw me wide-eyed
a testament to a new generation
you can reinvent it
you can reinvent the wheel

can you remember?
no ego so outer
a universe much closer to you and me
the stars we could touch them
space stairs deployed; they’re waving
Track Name: Paws
i wish i spoke to you, i wish i planned to
but what can i expect, not one of us did
you deserve my honesty, i never thought to call you up my friend,
take the van out, forgive the night winds for blowing smoke into our eyes
i just need some good news

i wish i spoke to you, i wish i planned to
now in the distance i saw it
we’re giving it up
Track Name: Canopy Eyes
stomach aches again dissatisfied by options
uncommon terrain keeps us entertained

sweetener isn't sugar
excuse not to shame

i see a light that burns in you still breathing
and you contract, converge me

staring back at me with canopy eyes
like a cat in the night, i'm your game
it's what you do to me

starlight burns so bright
gaze and bite
our dreams take flight at night
i wish i may, i wish i might

you chipped your tooth, time immemorial
it's a platform for memory
Track Name: Bully
i have an inkling this isn't what you need
and it's gonna take a long time to satisfy

shoved you out of the church, said they weren't like you
peril draws, but this hand only moves to change
amnesty will take you places you have only dreamed to go

love only wanted to show you where to look
a stupid cupid's arrow; it stings, it hurts
i'll take my relief

push me into the wall, bully into belief
puzzle-piece me, make me fit into the frame
turn me inside out, schadenfreude
the one that pleases you, it makes you wet
Track Name: No Fuzz
not my song to sing, the writer was my elder
it's not so complicated, more overly simple
four letters i could never write down

no need to try to wrap you up in self-sabotage
change my mind or shut me off
underestimation of myself, that garbage won't fit down this disposal

the shade dulls behind the furnace gate waiting for fire
thought the shelter held a distraction from that static stare
i am the pup's intent to tear at your new furniture
so goddamn lucky you won't ignore me

lay your head on my shoulder so it's lovely when you feel colder
i'll lay my head on your head

yeah you got it in your pocket
you close the door to keep it in
it's green, what you need, you got it, yeah, you know it's on
Track Name: Cats In The Sun
sun, i hunger for the cream of the crop
i emulate you and consume

desireless, time flies and slowly rips us up from the inside
brings us up only to die

my heart is full of disaffection
spiritually defected
i just want a place to call my own

sun, i hunger for the cream of the crop
i can't stand by and watch them wilt and fall to pieces

billy's bought new shoes
well, these rags will do
do i look like you
would you entertain the idea or dismiss with the rest
Track Name: Kissing
revealing peel the innermost shell
all my feelings completely naked now
fears stripped bare and i struggle with my opening
lowering my defenses, cannot see the outcome

set me free, kiss me
hold my all, kissing
better to be kissing
i want it all, kiss me

does it burn, will it catch like an illness
is this all that i know
could be the only one that ever was flammable
so i break another piece off my soul
you can have it, give it any number you like
Track Name: Pillow
hey hiphead, you're giving off negative discharge
it must have leaked out from your pillow

in denial, you practice it routinely
maybe eyes don't see the other's eyes
the child that you bore was sickly
survival was an option

you are anxious and paranoid,
a pessimistic fatalist
Track Name: Obscured By Light
unstable, yes, but i'd like to express my ideas with tact and no interruption
you're running a faucet to sink that's clogged
survivors won't drink it, they have a story that drowns your sad excuse you're holding on to
it's overdue

we haven't even made a consolation
what the hell was all of that for
so where's your pen and where's your paper

stay away you bring nothing to this world but hate

take all of your money you can build yourself a rocket to fly yourself to space, you've been banished
you can take what's on your back yeah that is all that you would get
you say you wouldn't do the same yeah you'd do worse

stay away you bring nothing to this world but pain

we haven't even made a consolation
what the hell was all of that for
a quarter century all for nothing
Track Name: All Saints Day
the sign you bear in your heart dwells with trust as it must
with hair so narrow, i want to cut it short

instead they continue to grow
they wrap until they know they are open
yea

there's no convincing with expired tradition
you can't make peace with behavior like these
how can i mend if i can't care for myself

smart and always living well
faster, faster, round and round
we'll catch a ride but there's no telling where it goes
do you want to know?
they go on that way forever
yea
Track Name: Stolen
stalling and starving, you're patient, i'm pining
though i broke my own heart
i had to guess who pressed down their thumb
heads up seven up
that late night grocery run kept you from my love
you died on impact; you told me to come with you
now i'm bathing in cold water
forgetting about your beckoning
you stole the time

insistently opened the window
throw the blanket out
i'll sleep on the cold, wet grass
return me to the soil so i can start anew

kept clovers
oh, the enlightening wrapped sweeping to the wind
clouds bending, shrouding
oh, fire in motion
i think i see the ultraviolet in the light
it's not fair and keeps me up at night
