With a Y 03:51
Encrypted tinctures dissolving Spelling out an unresolved melody that can never Be even partially complete Give up the ghost or go on fishing a barb through a sea of brunette hair In hopes to snare something I keep telling myself I felt before Strung wide the distances between the strands that mark the years that I’ve been chasing the same high that I haven’t known since the first time I’ll have you know that you ruined me ‘Cause I could have it all and still not Be even partially complete I’ll have you know that you ruined me Because the blessing from you was a curse indeed I’ve been waiting years to snap out of this But your name sits on my lips and I’m afraid it might never leave The consequences incurred while crossing marked territory Had it been left unmarked with dressed scars perhaps I could shake a fist at fate Maybe the ground raised or maybe I sank Either way I am left cordoned off and quarantined I move to merge the phrases that delay us Strike out to lead the symphony Change the frame of the status Form transients into melody (It’s that goddamn melody) Chasing that high That ruined me

Ages 05:09
In a no-tell motel that refuses me to leave The path to complete is synthesized inorganically Sober as judge (the rudiments hardly budge) With a lifetime of angles smoothed on the devils tongue Its unchanged these habits die slower than I Seem to swim against the evidence We borrowed I’ve been intoxicated with the idea of removing my spine since I Spent my whole life straddling lines never picking a side To align on Unchanged these habits die slower than I Seem to swim against the evidence we borrowed And stole Unchanged, trade for trade, day after day I borrow I’ve been running parallel campaigns to keep my options open I’ve been sleeping with enemy Oh every night I go to bed alone I wish I couldn’t hear the sound of my own voice Echoing loud Unchanged these habits die slower than I seem to swim against the evidence we borrowed And sold ‘Cause unchanged, trade for trade, day after day I borrow I will, yes I will, oh I will change nothing at all

I haven’t been able to shake off this incorrigible daze Keep inching forward headlong Step out and float across the crowd (gauge the fall, ain’t far, at all) I’ll just reach out and not look down (gauge the fall, ain’t far to fall down) Just be satisfied and stay satisfied with every little sacrifice It’s too late now to turn around I waited on the world to catch up with my version of truth So I wasted all the time I set aside before genericized drone tones Just be satisfied with the sacrifice And stay satisfied With life and love And a body that refuses to run out of blood From endeavors that were starved since birth And the wet dreams that have parched my reserves Just be satisfied and stay satisfied My heart is in the right place but sometimes My head cannot escape This place
4.
It was just a cadaveric spasm She was dead within a second And so her closed Don’t mistake the twitches as glimpses of hope Oh no For opportunity would have kept knocking But no one was ever coming home The worst time is the first experience Where it doesn’t hurt at all Oh how do we justify able hands with unmarked lives It’s the price that she paid for anonymity The first thing they would have you believe Is the last thing that may ever be achieved Well the worst time is the first experience Where it doesn’t hurt at all ‘Cause you’re numb to everything At all ‘cause you’re numb to everything Snake oil satellites caffeinate her lonely nights Don’t bother, don’t bother Just let sleeping dogs lie where they lie And let collapsing stars fade while they die Let sleeping dogs lie where they lie And let collapsing stars fade when they fade when they fade I am awash but I am afloat Atop a conglomerate Where no one holds their own Well the worst time is the first experience Where it doesn’t hurt at all ‘Cause you’re numb to everything At all ‘cause you’re numb to everything

Springtides 05:14
Aren’t you tempted to fill this space With all the people you once threw away? And all the la-la-la-leaps of faith Honey, they aren’t so easy to sustain Harmless in isolated incidents Merge and grow ruinous Were they such great years so much so that you needed a reprise? Maybe you’re the only reason Why your life didn’t turn out the way you wanted it to So don’t reach for the sky because an infinite climb Would soak you in regret wishing that you had just gotten it Right, the first time Let’s measure real change on learning from mistakes Let’s measure real change not half-assed leaps of faith First everyone regrets then everyone forgets; Their problems repeat First everyone regrets then everyone forgets; Their triumphs relieve So hand me your intentions, pledge to me your resolve (First everyone regrets then everyone forgets; Their woes repeat ) Put one foot in front of the other and shuffle along (First everyone regrets then everyone forgets; Their springtides succeed) Adjust your well-adjusted plans All the ideas you had Lead back to unlearn again Harmless in isolated incidents Merge and grow ruinous Were they such great years of your life so much so that you had to try to get it get it get it get it Right this time Get it right
