Track Name: eternal nighttime
the poppies are growing
their petals are blowing away

is this really happening
those words we wear
while steady sharpening
the blade put to our throat
this is it you said
like a sacrificial goat

the colors are boring
our prophets are going insane

is this really happening
the one true thought
that begat its own feeling
in a cage made of hope
at the punchline
waiting for the joke

a moon in the morning
when shadows are boring
eternal nighttime
Track Name: overjoyed
i see you watching there
those big red eyes i love
though i know you now
i'm not quite overjoyed

in the thickened air
my little lace that moves
if it's trouble or if it's good
i'm not quite overjoyed

i see you watching there
those big red eyes i love
though i know you now
i'm not quite overjoyed
Track Name: the rule of thirds
tired of
reaching out for words
in our minds
there's a rule of thirds
is it right
shine on deli light
because idle time
never let us grow up

they don't know me out here

out of touch
don't want to think that much
i see a choice
lost in the city noise

all my friends can dance
but i don't stand a chance

they don't know me out here

all my friends can dance
but i don't stand a single chance
Track Name: a brilliant light
Track Name: wasted state
is it any wonder i care
is there anybody out there
in a wasted state
sing and dance and try to relate
standing at the edge
wonder why it's there
hanging down below in the air
sky grows far as the ground comes near
funny this fear
Track Name: meet the devil
your bad fortune
it's not like you
to be sorry
don't be sorry
to be worried
is to live your life alone at home all day

set the table
good and able
meet the devil
in the sunlight
through the window
hold his hands in your hands and make mistakes
Track Name: stranger now
i know you said i could
but i sure feel like a stranger now

i know it's no use
there's no light and there's no truth
it's not always good
so i'll be looking out for you
no stranger now
stranger now
Track Name: sour
if i could i would
remember the times i spent
in the lazy days
a doctor and family and friends
hide away
clouds passing over my head
it's a wonder spent
but i don't want that again
Track Name: marigolds
last night i saw you with a smoking gun
now we dance in the fire
it's all said and done
i wonder what will become of me
took a look in the mirror
i've got the marigolds again

thought i would never be the one to make
one time two times
but that's all that would take
each day in time is all that remains
demon demands
o i've got the marigolds again

i've got a terrible feeling
Track Name: be my guest
over top and down below
empty as a poisoned grove
if you want to take it all in why
here you go

give a month or give a week
it is only time to me
if i had to say that i don't mind
i would lie

all we know is certain death
but if you think that you know best
if you want to save the world that's fine
be my guest
