Track Name: Retrouvaille
He’s reaping all that he has sown
And only thistles do the harvest bring
She keeps his head to the ground
And her boot to his neck
And inside him she is his everything
No alliance beside them
No freedom divides them
When the seed upon the pastures was grown
And the sun never rises wherever he’ll go
Cause the moon in the sky is all he knows

He vowed to be forever true to her
Yet her eyes could not be tamed
When the dagger came down
In the gutter lay the scraps
Burdened him with blame
A song couldn’t keep her
Few disbelieved her
When the masses would turn against him fast
And through all the spite we reached out our hands
But never would they feel his grasp

Until one day they meet again
A soul in decay and a false love betrayed
And there he could trace
The ugly stories on her face
She’d been hung like a wet tattered rag
She couldn’t just ignore him
Fell to her knees before him
And she split herself open and revealed her shame
And in his pity the cage opened wide
Got down and put his head to the ground again

He’s reaping all that he has sown
And only thistles do the harvest bring
Track Name: One Hundred Days in the Parlor
Under street lights wand'ring
In the weird part of this city
Shelter for the con-man, ruffian, and thief
Get out of the car, I hear
You’d expect a terrified shriek, yet silence

Something about this disturbs me
Yet I feel I should seek the arcane
Never thought I would find myself here at this hour
At the place where our secrets remain

They want to go home
They’re naked and alone
They’re hidden right among us as we carry on
And we cannot see the warning signs hanging high

Room 209, last door on your right
She’ll be waiting for you there
Down the hallway with the smell of powdered death in the air

In the pale neon glow a phantom beckons me
Her pose says come hither but her eyes say save me please
The marks of a struggle can be seen through the haze
And the plea for her life in her gaze

Just over three months she’s been put away
Stolen from her routine, out of sight
In a moment's notice, a motive drove us
We’ll recede into the night

Come with me my darling, move your brittle bones
We’ll break out of this prison, and take you to your home

Quick before they find us, stumbling in the rain
God knows if we ever see the light of day again
Track Name: The Promise of a Wonderful Future
A slithering creature emerges from the deep
Paranoid shelter surrounds the world while it sleeps
You’ve got your shit together, you’re not scared
You’re not scared, are you?
Track Name: (nsprbl)
find you
scare you
second guessing you

seek you
gauge you
do as you do
Track Name: Keep Your Voice Down
Keep your voice down, keep your voice down
So the gods won’t hear us
Keep your voice down, keep your voice down
Trouble with this place today
Curtains drawn in, lighting goes dim
While we wait and listen
What would life be, what would life be
If they all just walked away

What will become of me?
I feel you pulling me
Asunder, oh I wonder, for the future, they can’t hear you, can they feel you?
Who will take my hand?

Keep your voice down, keep your voice down
So the gods won’t hear us
Keep your voice down, keep your voice down
Trouble with this place today
Screaming and shouting, screaming and shouting
There they go again now
Helpless and thin, pale is the skin
Can you feel their world decay?

Three sides to every story
Sound waves pushing me away from you
Drywall bringing me closer
Closer
How much of me
Can be separated
From me
Before I am no longer made
In your image
