Track Name: Expire
Every second allowed to be fashionably late

Is a second from me you take

I hope I’ve been nourishing longings unsaid

Just look straight ahead, airways collapsing,

The flash of my silhouette the choke will bring

Looks like I’ve been nourishing fevers and dread

Breathe all me in

Relive the sin

Who’s your new best friend? Anyone instead

The plainer the better there’s no love to lose

Smoothing out the loss, without bruising all the gloss

You’re alone

Meet my new best friend

With the sweetness ingested, the bitterness aches

Leaving sweetness for charity’s sake

Now I’m granted permission; acerbic rewind,

Is there anything else you’ve lost? Oh yes, your time

Breathe all me in

Relive the sin

We all send our condolences

We all send our full expenses

Let us all pretend we’re wonderfully content, and raise a glass to absent friends
Track Name: Disappearing Ink
This will be the last of me you’ll see

Rest assured this time

These are the last words

I’m still desperate for more

Verbose maxims, grasping on to reasons

Your same touchés, impaling and well seasoned

Can’t you see rhetorical guilt?

Can’t you feel the lyrical lilt?

Spit it out now, spit it right back

Enterprise together never dies

Bear in mind designs have a legal bind

You flip the switch, so innate and perfect

I’ll be worthy of tomorrow’s brunch subject

There is more Pandora has in store

I’ll blow the dust off your secret heartbreak

Oh I see through you

There’s the tone that hides the pain

Oh I see through you

Your abuse still tastes the same

Tell me the truth

Since I do not believe you

Enterprise together never dies

Bear in mind designs have a legal bind

Genesis is shared

In the sketches we draft to map our hearts

Genesis is shared

In the timbers we lay to keep our faith embraced

Someday I’ll teach you to not forget that
Track Name: Scalene
I’ll stand here, rib deep and wading in

You’ll stand there, so weightless and serene

This wasn’t ever a question – of self-fulfilling prophecy

This wasn’t ever a question – of proving love

Conjoined, we were face to face

Eye to eye

Rotate, now we’re heel to heel, unglued

Polarized, polarized; now the magnet’s gone

Polarized, polarized; now the physics says it’s true

The balance was biased all along

You ran away with double negatives

You ran away with artful paradox

... away with fancied flight of thought

This is how you have come out righteously? Not a chance

I covet you through and through

You cover me with your dues

You ran away with every promise

Conjoined, we were face to face

Eye to eye

Rotate, now we’re heel to heel, unglued

Polarized, polarized; you left years ago

Nothing left anymore to share with you

Nothing left anymore to spare from you
Track Name: Forensics
Cast the rescue line my way again

It coils around my neck instead

The more I tug the more it tightens

Madrugada missives

Memory dismissive

Build it high, cement dry

Soon weight swings, collapse in

I’d pick you off the suspect line

Hands tied and blind

I’d pick you off the suspect line

In any grain of time

Your phenotypes are my enzymes

Too much pride, zealous mind

Still employed scoring points

I’m glad I’ve something to hide

Keep social decency high

My image of you is the perfect race

The blueprint’s logged; I can’t erase the data

I’d pick you off the suspect line

Grey haired and blind

I’d pick you off the suspect line

In any grain of time

Once a sage told me to never recapitulate

And I ignored him because I never knew just what he meant
Track Name: Dust to Dust
Miracles arise as the genome still unwinds

We are left to chance and chance will be a fine thing (chance will do just fine)

Think of the permutations that occurred

Think of the combinations that endured

That led you to my arms

Constellations burst like fireworks and shower down

Sparking a blessing of life your touch revives

Misty sunlight dapples the earth

Incubating my mind

All these seeds that germinate leave

Only one fruit behind

I will blossom, show my colours

Only for you

I will for you

Constellations burst like fireworks and shower down

Sparking a blessing of life your touch revives

Here’s the meaning of life: there’s always hope

Here is the meaning of life: there is hope (there’s always hope)

Every scene, the meet-and-greet, the wine-and-dine, has cause

Each choice has a consequence

The penny-fountain creation

And now you stand, pressed in my hands, I’m shown the reason

Your fingertips stamp the seal of beauty existing

Your fingertips stamp the seal that beauty exists

Your fingertips stamp the seal of beauty existing

Every scene, meant to be

Now you stand, in my hands

I can find the reason why

Essence is here, in us
Track Name: Neptune
Hope caught in these four stone walls

Faithful torture seeps through

Tears loosen tension, seasoning the sea

Weathered his face; not dead, stronger

Your vast anatomy suffocated me

The weight of the world wrenched our shoulders

Keep me guarded, safe within you

Forever treasure

Reflect the bleak lunar gaze

Reflect

Pounding, engulfing, dissolving monotony

How worthless our nerve against the deep swell

Possessing, absorbing our rationality

The weight of the world wrenched our shoulders

Keep me guarded, safe within you

Forever treasure

Behold, the grey landscape calls

So cold, I’m so cold

The grey landscape falls away

Unfold and let sense be infinite and echo history

The weight of the world wrenched our shoulders

Surrender to the sea and offer your heart

Keep me guarded, safe within you

Take me somewhere, somewhere new

But somewhere with you
Track Name: Nostalgia is a Weapon
This is a life quiescent through principles

To venture forward I need the past to sign consent forms

The turmoil of symbiosis has bent the lock

You try to force with keys you cut that just aren’t hers

Fairytales make jokes of social interplay

I thought I’d accepted modern human traits

I’m keratinized too thickly to absorb

Give me all you have

You didn’t even think about the way this would affect me

The silent kill

The silent killer

Maybe you’re right

I find it hard to say the words to you

It’s the classic line in the book

So every sigh I hold is a dissonant ode of regret

Dear Alice, I’m the Tin Man

Cold, rusting steel

Dear Alice, I’m the Tin Man

I just won’t heal

This is introspection at its most self-indulgent

A vendetta against myself

You didn’t even think about the way this would affect me
Track Name: Ruin Ethics
The fear of belief that you had in the past

Sweet denial

The fear of intrusion that you chose in illusion was never given a chance

I’m down on both knees, thought it would be the one

I’m so perfect

The honours list should have me up for knighthood, not an execution

I can say those words, but they’ve lost all their worth

The space between the ash and flame

The space between the thought and shame

If I survived the Judgement would I gain respect?

There isn’t even the symbolism worthy to dissect

Bitterness and remorse play tug-of-war

Forgiveness is just too hard

Just too hard

Only Jesus wins

Losing perspective has shown me the door

Sweet denial

It would have been nice if I knew how finite was our ‘forever more’

The concept of moral ground is a farce

I’m so perfect

When all that I take is everybody’s mistakes with a magnifying glass

The space between the ash and flame

The space between the thought and shame

If I survived the Judgement would I lose respect?

There isn’t even the cynicism left to break your neck
Track Name: In Memoriam
You’re waltzing through nostalgia

Your tempo syncs the rhythm back

Your glide of figure is unmistakable

It’s the only thing now that really is

You were the purity

And still you tarnish me

Fate has argued long enough

It’s all you

It’s always you

Everything is calm, so calm and fluid

There’s too much sweet nausea in your black lace to be anyone else

We’ve found each other again and we deserve space

I’ll let you touch the brushstrokes

I’ll let you tilt on the gentle slope of grass

Now I’ve earned subsistence in your grace

Solar power was all that was needed

It’s all you

It’s always you

Everything is calm, so calm and fluid

Fate has argued long enough

You were the purity

And still you tarnish me

Faces concealed

Your fingers wind into the dorsal grooves you carved

And I pray you’ll follow me as I drag you through the dark

Faces concealed

I can't find out who is real
