[The Ornament]

The lines we draw between our minds make love less whole
When tried we often, self-in-mind, do harm the soul

Spread wide the bellows, take passion before kind
Your time is your loss
Steal hearts and de-robe the bride, take all that is mine
What good is your world

Broken yet powerful, splendid and loved
Turning from inside, to outward undone

Instead of asking why you’re here, try taking stock

Spread wide the bellows, take passion before kind
Your time is your loss
Steal hearts and de-robe the bride, take all that is mine
What good is your world

 

[Euphoria (Planned Bruises)]

Every move I make brings me back to you
Even when you’re gone
Each decision brings another thousand eyes
I can’t tell what’s wrong

What good does wisdom bring when it don’t apply
Even when I’m wrong
You cry when angels sing and let your children die
You can’t tell what’s wrong

So this is goodbye
Or another way of sayin’ it’s over, again
You don’t get no ‘why’
Just a story and some fair-weather friends

[Song of Songs]

Spirit breathe, the light of all iniquity
Ring the bells of dilettante ubiquity
Burn the fur of elevated effigy
Speak the tongue of affluent apostrophe

Stir the brine, thick with generosity
Eat the earth, sewn with anonymity
Set your sites, between her; metaphorically
Turn her ‘round, extract; with more authority

Some will shine

Spirit move, in lieu of all this inactivity
Meet demands, inspire integrity
Turn the tide, that boils bound in hypocrisy
Spill the blood, and turn away from urgency

 

[Devouring The Devoted]

She came from across the sea, like a bolt of lightning

Get up top of the mountain
Hands above the trees

She lit the blinded eye, burned into my retinas

Get up top of the mountain
Hands above the trees

I’ll always know what’s in your eyes, unchanged by what they see
If only I could fall inside, the world you offer me

She whistled through the breeze, devouring the devoted

Get up top of the mountain
Hands above the trees

I’ll always know what’s in your eyes, unchanged by what they see
If only I could fall inside, the world you offer me

 

[The Way She Sighs]

You should listen to the way she sighs, you can hear her heartbeat
Underneath those watery skies, you’ll always find me

She came up to me, a holy sign
Though in our hearts we were afraid to change our minds
Then came the way we were at times

I could listen to the way she sighs with every heartbeat
Bleeding out before you close your eyes, no one will ever find me

With every breath she takes, it burns the rind
Between the earth and space that pulled apart my mind
She only speaks, and I’m alive

If you listen to the way she sighs, you can hear my heartbeat
Right between those pale blue eyes, from where this life springs

Come on now

With every breath she takes, it burns the rind
Between the earth and space that pulled apart my mind

(x2)

She only speaks, and I’m alive

 

[The Stargazer]

Should life have meaning after all
Waste not the time, concerns untold
‘Bring forth the seas, oh tortured beast!
With eyes ablaze, that weathered gaze!’

In turn we humbly, honor numbly,
The loudest name, the speakers’ shame
Before we utter, brave men’s fodder
Seek to rescue, without shame

Few things are forever, wait and see
If not together, why oh
Come together, by the sea
All we’ve got is ‘why’

You’ve got to play both sides
Goddamn your memories
You’ve got to play both sides
God, don’t depend on me

When stars react, without design
The heavens burn, and sing tomorrow

 

[Interlude]

You’re tired, mind aches
From a world that was made entirely
From a thought that you only had one time while we were kids

 

[Mercury]

Would the light deceive you, should shadows escape view
‘Whom would blame the blame?’ I sigh

Add up what’s divided, divide what you have added
‘Where do you explain?’ I cry

Mercury! Hold on to me

(x2)

Would a lie believe you, should truth become its pursuit
‘Who claims it would change?’ you try

Take away the product, multiply the difference
‘What is there to gain?’ you chime

Mercury! Hold on to me

(x2)

 

[Wrong Side]

Oh my god you guys, it hurts
'Let Us reap that which you sow'
If only I could find the words
'Those aren't the words (for you), you know'

I'd quit it all given the chance
'Not before we have advanced'
All I taste is bitterness
'Because you're on the

Wrong side, the heart of the enemy
At last sight, had hopped into bed'

I'm just about to lose my mind
'It's not yours for you to find'
Each one of you I gave my trust
'As we asked now hush'

How am I to learn to love
'As we say not as we do'
How am I the only one?
'Because you're on the

Wrong side, the heart of the enemy
At last sight, had hopped into bed'
Lungs let fly, their languages heavenward
Yet your reply, gets lost in your ‘head’

Oh my, it seems you’ve maxed out your queries
Let’s try again at the end
Don’t cry, you’ll make all of your friends weary
Sit tight, we’ll start you again

When can a guy just catch a break
‘That’s only for us, not you, to know’
Who does he pay to stop the ache
‘You can’t because you’re the

Wrong side, the heart of the enemy
At last sight, had hopped into bed'
Lungs let fly, their languages heavenward
Yet your reply, gets lost in your ‘head’

Oh my, it seems you’ve maxed out your queries
Let’s try again at the end
Don’t cry, you’ll make all of your friends weary
Sit tight, we’ll start you again

 

[Shame On You (She Said)]

Shame on you for the things you put me through
Even though I bleed, I’m not the same as you

You seem fine when you change your alibi
But you skipped out on being what I need

One more time, and I’ll call your paradigm
Please don’t shout, it’s clogging up my feed

This may seem hard to you
But it’s what we’re going through
No one can make you what you need

I’ve lived a little while
So sorry that it cramped your style
We’ve learned a little since you left

Hurry back! There’s still room on your old track
I’ve got your pills, and pray for all your needs

This may seem hard for you
But it’s what we’re going through
No one can make you what you need

I’ve lived a little while
So sorry that it cramped your style
We’ve learned a little since you left

 

[Seasick]

You’re quite happy to take an opposing stance
Should the time arrive
Then quickly taking the narrow path ‘round
Until you decide what’s right

I don’t mean to pry but how did you get so blameless
Were it up to me we all would die
Were we all to learn, oh you whom shall remain nameless
Right between the eyes of your concern

Oh honey, you sure got a second glance
From that handsome guy
Just give it, who gives a shit about class
Just make sure you hide those lines

I don’t mean to pry but how did you get so blameless
Were it up to me we all would die
Were we all to learn, oh you whom shall remain nameless
Right between the eyes of your concern

Time unwinds
The thoughts we have about each other when we’re alone
Bye bye love, I’m waving you goodbye
