Track Name: Doubt
This is the levee
I place this flood upon you
there will be shame
this drowning becomes you

Do what you love
slowly kill yourself
While you’re out
the one you love
is fucking someone else

As time moves on
you’ll feel safe
let me be your doubt
I sit upon your shoulder
& weigh you down
Track Name: The Nighttime Pugilist
The Nighttime Pugilist

I Wake to find
Nothing is the same
Last night was a full blur
Clouded in smoke

Sunlight & failures
The evening thrives on
the fists of the pure grain
Barely viewed as a number
Paid in pocket change

The brighter the star
The Darker the shadow
Daylight lives in a vacuum
& I never sleep

tied to our failures
still pushing forward

3 hours of hard floors
8 more of watching lines
we are buried in our faith
all of our eyes red with pain

This faith time
is built in value
Some will bleed for a dollar
some only bleed
Track Name: Wayfarer

Neck deep for the ones that paddle
Steadfast in an endless battle
Death in the valley of love vs art
Self applied judgement or value

These sins
I keep them close to my skin
They run their fingers down my back
Pulling tighter the ropes
& the pain is love that we know.

Die 1000 deaths
claim resurrection
you're coming back
learn to crawl
take in your last breath
and play your records backwards
all night
your coming back
learn to crawl

Lay me down
Drag your teeth across my faith
Sell or be sold
give up
all the years you
paid in blood
Track Name: When Street Lights Die
When Street Lights Die

In passing
The sleeping sheeplike masses
Where the grass is greener
ignorance is bliss and I try
to keep my eyes on the ground

I'm not die'n
Just getting old
Nothing is what I thought it would be

When I drive home
The streetlights die
Bullshit luck, timing or
circumstantial meaning.
This is love in the city of diamonds
This is love in the city of ghosts

Jet lag with out ever moving
fighting the tide biding my time
this is just a passing phase
death whispered in my ear today
