Track Name: The Depths of Hell [Abridged 2016 Mix]
The adage is that these additives only dilute the purity of what you hold
But I’m trying hard to kind of take that apart
but you know, some institutions have a strong choke hold.
Cast to this contest, I’m pressed to act surprised kid.
I hate you more than I hate the air that you breathe.
Crisp like a winters kiss
Crisp like your splintered lips
I’ll always let you get the best of me

And I will call out its name because I saw it in a movie.
Calmly beg for the great mover to move me.
You and you and you and you never knew me
Calmly beg for the holy ghost
Or a candle.

And more than I’d like things are just not right.
We breathe hard when we sleep
And the smell of snow makes me miss London, ON.
As if that’s supposed to mean
The smell of old books, intransigent crooks and,
Suddenly, most of all, the blow that I never took.

I will call out its name because I saw it in a movie
Calmly beg for the great mover to move me
Needless to say you and you and you never knew me
Calmly beg for the holy ghost
Or a candle.

Like all cost
Not at all like my son
You exist – apparatus – above my heart and my lungs.
Like all cost
Not at all like my son
You exist – apparatus – above my heart and my lungs.
Like that car in your yard
Or some obsolete Hollywood prop
I’m going to sell you, or,
Strip you for parts.
Like that car in your yard
Or some obsolete Hollywood prop
I’m going to sell you, or,
Strip you for parts.

At the archway, the same archway you kept me
I surrender,
And without a sound

Ease my sheathed sword down
While a bead of sweat drips right from my head
And is forfeited, like my yellow soul,
Into the depths of hell.

Ease my sheathed sword down and be forfeited
Whether young or old, you’ll be forfeited,
Like my yellow soul
Into the depths of hell
One more time.

Ease my sheathed sword down.
Ease my sheathed sword down.
Ease my sheathed sword down.
Ease my sheathed sword down.
Track Name: Waywardly
Upon a hillside, yeah
They call a truce tonight
But from their secret depths
They harvest all our brains
Until the scales are tipped
Until a headwind blows
Into the open air
Yeah they would take their palms
And rub them all about
Their solemn faces now
As if it makes sense, sure
But if you had your way
Yeah, you would make them crawl
Pound their aching fists
Just to make your case
And stab at one huge rift
I could tell you the story a hundred ways
But it’s late in the evening
And I don’t wish to stay
Is passage forbidden?
Can I make my way forward?
The right of refusal I choose to ignore
I’ve come much too far now
And I reckon it’s time
To destroy this prison and take what is mine
Is it cliché to say so? what fuck what I give?
I’ve seen through the future
The darkness persists

Do not let that scare you
At least not for too long
You pick up your pieces and, sauntering on,
Discover a world where for limitless loss
Infinity’s given – do you want it or not?
I am not enlightened and I don’t want to talk
I don’t want your friendship
And this shit can’t be bought
The wind countervailing
The tide rising high
The levers are pulling themselves on to die

I know you can hardly sleep
Now I know you can hardly sleep
Now I know you can hardly sleep
Now I know you can hardly sleep
Yeah
Now I know you can hardly sleep
Now I know you can hardly sleep
Now I know you can hardly sleep
Now I know you can hardly sleep
Now I know you can hardly sleep

Now I know you can hardly sleep
You look me in the eye and tell me
You don’t realize what is going on
Such an unconfident choice of words
Why not speak more properly to the people you love
And speak the truth as much as possible?
Never possible, impossible
You can do it
There’s no excuse for the actions you take
When in contravention to your sole
But everyday is just a day
Where the opposite takes place
And we fall asleep
To the sound of sirens firing
Track Name: Alchemy of Bliss
Don’t worry too much
And don’t read in the dark
That shit’s hard on your eyes
To say nothing of your heart
Your retina will become minced meat
And we’ll feed it to the dogs to fuck you
Just to spite you

We laugh only at others misfortune
Gyre widens only
Ours is larger than the other person’s portion

The sacred alchemy of bliss
Ferment the wine within one kiss
Find a love that’ll blister and burn
Cause the world not to turn
Go to bed
And get your rest

The sacred alchemy of bliss
Honey, will you give me a kiss?
Find a love that’ll blister and burn
Cause the world not to turn
Or go to bed
And get your rest

Line your garbage up
At the side of your house
Lining of your stomach
Eating it out
You bet ya
We’ll become minced meat
And they’ll feed us to the dogs to fuck you
Just to spite you
Yeah

We laugh only at others misfortune
Yeah you can have yours but
Ours Is larger than the other person’s portion

The sacred alchemy of bliss
Ferment the wine within one kiss
Find a love that’ll blister and burn
Cause the world not to turn
Or go to bed
And get your rest

The sacred alchemy of bliss
Honey, will you give me a kiss?
Find a love that’ll blister and burn
Cause the world not to turn
Or get to bed
And get your rest

On your bathroom floor
Weep and moan
But always asking for more

The sacred alchemy of bliss
It’s funny with a bit of a twist
Find a love that’ll blister and burn
Cause the world not to turn
Or go to bed
And get your rest

The sacred alchemy of bliss
Honey, will you give me a kiss?
Find a love that’ll blister and burn
Cause the world not to turn
Or get to bed
And get your rest.
Track Name: Blue Curtain [2016 Mix]
The first thing that comes to mind is a twenty-one gun salute
Echoing throughout some street plagued by poverty that I never knew.
Do I want to write it down and feel topical for you?
Is it hidden in the salt of the earth
and did you come first?
The answer to an infinite regress.

All my life I haven't followed the light
that appeared to burn the brightest
but baby I found you.
But can we call it the same reformed
and resolute force that is fucking
everybody else, is gonna fuck us too
It's gonna fuck us too.

But baby I found you.
Are you there? Are you listening?
I found you.

but baby I found you.
But can we call it the same reformed
and resolute force that is fucking

It's gonna fuck us too.

Are you there? Are you listening?
I found you.
Track Name: You've Gotta Die
You may laugh
You may cry
And you’ll wonder just why
In the end, my friend
You’ve gotta die
Awe struck
By hard luck
Romance or made love
But what’s given is taken
You’ve gotta die

You’ve gotta die
You’ve gotta die
That’s the heart of the matter
Stop wondering why
‘cuz that’s why we try
That’s why we fight
Yes, as long as you’re living
You’ve gotta die

So don’t wait
And don’t hate
It’s no sinister fate
That could be outmaneuvered
You’ve gotta die
Sure it sucks
But don’t sweat it
‘cuz the problem with regretting
Is that you ain’t changing nothing
You’ve gotta die

You’ve gotta die
You’ve gotta die
That’s the heart of the matter
Stop wondering why
‘cuz that’s why we try
That’s why we fight
Yeah, as long as you’re living
You’ve gotta die

You’ve gotta die

What a thought
Don’t get sad
Is it really that bad?
We pay the bill for this living
You’ve gotta die
And how strange
That this ending
Was there from the beginning
That as long as you’re living
You’ve gotta die

You’ve gotta die
You’ve gotta die
That’s the heart of the matter
Stop wondering why
‘cuz that’s why we fight
That’s why we try
Yes, as long as you’re living
You’ve gotta die

Just as long as you’re living
You’ve gotta die.
