Track Name: will you stop
will you stop, it has been very loud
will you stop, it has been very long
don’t take my word,
i will take the food from your tongue
will you stop
i’m done reaching out to the crowd

ever/dividing/never

while the ocean blooms you’re kept alive
life in a machine, don’t occupy yourself with why
(we don’t
need you)
Track Name: hearing faces
and in the morning i am useless
haunting it
hearing faces, rest your case
enlighten me

will you get some sleep?
won’t you take your pills?
don’t be sly with me, with me

i don’t want to fight x3

i don’t want to hide x3
Track Name: godspeed
admit us in two
now pure of mortal expectations
we’ve no room for you here
& the voices become too much
i watched my arms grow thin
& my lungs withering
godspeed

we, on our way
can they fix us up with something for sleep
we’ll see the dark
in a new light
overdose underwater with creatures who become you
godspeed

break the heart another time
embers of your memory collide
you & i have been here before
wear the knot of your simple sores

we will bait the thieves
steal their clothes as they stumble
towards streets they now know well
& the mind, slow to die,
it is fine to be in the cell for a while
(don’t let it become you)
godspeed, godspeed

break the heart another time
embers of your memory collide
you & i have been here before
wear the knot of your swollen sores
Track Name: sympathy
well you’ve come right on time
my dear, you have arrived
and we’re swimming in sympathy
lust for the enemy
your secret out
Track Name: sell your skin
swallow your turpentine,
creature subside
as you wait by the fireside
to come alive

by rope and wool you carry the tide
sell your skin, let your darlings die

they will come for you x4

i know not how to tell you i’ve never been more
full of wine, you make sure it’s never your fault
so sip it kind, cyanide, let your memory grow

i’m what i have to hate
i’m what i have to hate

they will come for you
they will
Track Name: bleed & /////
disappoint all you have loved
take heed, an offer to leave
i stand where you have fallen
leave you to stand
where we fall in

know she is made of stone
you are made of stone

you question the water
but she doesn’t know how to see you
you question the water
but she won’t come

go ahead, strange one, bleed & fight
you may as well enjoy it
as you are coming undone
it’s not me you’re after
not me you’re afraid of

no i am made of stone

you question the water
but she doesn’t know how to see you
you question the water
but she won’t come
you question the water
but she doesn’t know how to find you
