Track Name: Wild Fire
the smell of blood
and dust on the road
as i follow my footprints all the way home
but i cannot remember
how to receive from sender
mapless and stranded
on an empty planet
tied up in your bed
are you just a friend
tied up in your bed
from head to limb

lets run lets run
into the night
until the sun drags us down
have fun and lose some
control of your mind
just killing some time
but you can burn out
and burn up alive
my friend the fire is wild

well howve ya been?
hell where to begin?
all the endless yearning at
midnight burning out
late on the town
wrapped up in a crowd
embarrassed and proud
with the sage and the clown
holding council beneath
the moons lunacy
a place i never show her
though id love to know her

lets run lets run
into the night
until the sun drags us down
have fun and lose some
control of your mind
just killing some time
but you can burn out
and burn up alive
my friend the fire is wild
Track Name: Past Lives
wave goodbye in a dream and
wake on the other side
the truth aint what it seems when
you got something to hide
yeah you got something to hide

in our past lives
i may have known you
in our past lives
i may have shown you
decomposed
hollow bones

time passes by like
trains on the highway side
miles, minutes, hours
by seconds divide
by seconds divide

in our past lives
i may have known you
in our past lives
i may have shown you
decomposed
hollow bones

wave goodbye in a dream and
wake on the other side
the truth aint what it seems when
you got something to hide
yeah you got something to hide
Track Name: Splint
mortality
in memory

ghosts dont decompose
in the evening
redness of the west

lost the will to speak
dont know what it means
the world breaks my heart
please put me in a splint
Track Name: Hemlock
even the sun
has its time
to rise and shine
to live and die

and so our flesh
shall bear the scars
of insects crawling
through our veins

might never see
whats killing me

remember how
we used to sway
in the lazy summer breeze
before the needles
in our arms
fell away
beneath the lunar gaze

might never see
whats killing me

pulled inside out
over and over again

please have mercy on our souls
and the disease in our hearts
for the end is nigh
Track Name: Gray
theres an open door
to an empty room
behind your eyes
please come home soon

reawake into the gray
dont you want a sunny day

come on down
gather around
lets see whats used
in the lost and found
chase a feeling like no other
try to hold the smoke that smothers

reawake into the gray
dont you want a sunny day

in spring a poison fever
thawed the bones of winter
returned to rust by autumn
the golden youth off summer

and im unsure
if im still here
Track Name: Cross Roads
i dont want to
though i have to
kill to survive
costs a dollar
takes a life
well step right up
and try to win the fight
tonight
right on
sounds good
i guess

but i dont want to
though i have to
be leaving soon
for some other place
a bit more unknown
take up vacant space
alright
you alright?

hanging around
at the crossroads of town

i dont have to
but id like to
shatter glass and
cry and laugh about it
shake this cast off
and try not to crash without it
crash without it

hanging around
at the crossroads of town

right on
sounds good
i guess
