Track Name: Sweet Ruth, Layman's Truth
I'll ask the questions here
starting with what are you running from
you waded
until your feet shriveled up

there ain't no shelter here
line up your demons in front of a gun
overstated
the prospect that I could not be different now


it's a tiny little joint that you got there, girl
you don't even gotta share
I can just take the walk with you
yea that's cool

and though I haven't been transparent I got baggage yea
it's been a weird couple months
spending too much time with own devices
sweet ruth, layman's truth

the structural integrity
can take the weight of clarity
as far it goes
as long as it takes

the structural integrity
can take the weight of clarity
as far it goes
as long as it takes


we're all high and numb

catharsis, phi phenomenon
mildly jaded
I'd rather be outside

and this banter's far too witty for me
and the cityscape is folding in
eighty paces
across the sand where I chose to draw the line
Track Name: Tragically Unaware
felt bitter and weak
was so relieved that you met me when you did
stressed and troubled with speech
tragically unaware of how it had to be


Sophie's Subaru
down on Xs up on stims that homies gave me
I know that
we could have been friends

but I was so anxious
and truth be told so were you
and neither of us
could be so trusting

of finding balance between
what you expect and
what you hope for

we could have been friends


hiding underneath the surface
a stash of petty lies
rhythmic thunderclaps are coping
our soft mistaken pride

honesty and make believe


gradual phosphorous decays, decays
dripping on my body
my watchful eyes remind me of the grey


was so relieved that you met me when you did
stressed and troubled with speech
tragically unaware of how it had to be


of finding balance between
what you expect and
what you hope for

we could have been friends
Track Name: The Garden
lilac covering
tainted tangerine
wake up it's just a dream
or maybe it's not

dizzily circling
binary star systems
and like a menagerie, pilin' in
to be gracefully displayed


before I could weep
before I could sleep
before I was a baby
was caught up in misdeeds

before time could reach
the edge of the breach
got it all retracted slowly


it goes and it goes


I wanted to be well
a different kind of soul
yet I still ruminate
on moons and rainbows

anagrams of dove and bel
in a delicate firmament
and a valerian, decaying
remains a sympathetic pink

before I could eat
before I fell deep
intro hyperbolic daydreams
had no chance of retreat

no intentions to keep
the cabal at peace
through deontologic crises

it goes and it goes
