Track Name: Outside New Canaan
When I swept that Gideon bible
Out the plywood hotel drawer
In Montreal with you sound asleep
I then locked the bathroom door
It never was without its pre-tense
It never was without its charm
But I chose the flame, forever see,
To answer your call to arms

You let it all fall down.
Surprise! Now you pick it back up.

We’re coming home fear no opposing force
We take blow after blow and we still want more
If what you reap is what you sow,
Well we’ve sown our share.
One solemn obligation to a sense of despair.

Once again you’re at the foot of your rival
And you fell through the open door
In Montreal, Freedom & Weep
You didn’t go to sleep no more
It never was without its pretense
It couldn’t be without its charm
Have I chose the flame forever see?
To answer your call to arms

You let it all fall down so
Surprise! Now you pick it back up

We’re coming home fear no opposing force
We take blow after blow and we still want more
If what you reap is what you sow,
Well we’ve sown our share.
One solemn obligation to a sense of despair.
Track Name: The Rate Of Exchange
As if I got the will but then I lost the time

Knees against knees and your lips to mine.

I won’t let you burn but I’ll make it hurt,

and wage war on the me that is making this work

I’m trading this fraction for your better fraction

and don’t act surprised that you’re letting this happen.

I’m trading this fraction for your better fraction

and don’t act surprised that you’re letting this happen.

And I’ll leave no bridge unburned where-so-ever I turn.

‘Cuz its best to keep your heart and hands black.

Under the cover of night we will do this right

and ill collapse into the small of your back.



I’m trading this fraction for your better fraction

and don’t act surprised that you’re letting this happen.

I’m trading this fraction for your better fraction

and don’t act surprised that you’re letting this…

The Rate of Exchange it keeps rising and rising

and the voice in my head screams ‘you’re dying you’re dying.’

And when I fire back with ‘you’re lying you’re lying’

We know who's wrong and who's right.

From the back of my head to the manifest.

from the length of my arm to the coast.

we are not human beings we’re inanimate,

face to face and ghost to ghost.

If I can kill time I can make a plan,

The notion of god and his sleight of hand.

If smoke and black soot would make this art,

Dissolve it, like smoke, into my heart.


Right here where it left me - retracing my steps.

You’re born with a heart that never forgets.

Compelled, moving westward for ridiculous reasons.


kill my mind 
kill my mind 
kill my mind


This is what I call restitution

This is what I call restitution

This is what I call restitution

This is what I call…

Track Name: All Aside
Say its name, disquiet see

across this room from V to V

Please love be careful please watch where you step

I will find the answer but I have not found it yet. 

But I will



You were my friend until last year

At which point we parted mouths from ears

Please love be careful please watch where you step

I will find the answer but I have not found it yet

All Aside

We are fighting

for our lives



Disgust sets in at 3:45PM

At which point we wonder how we’re alive

Please love be careful and don’t doubt what I say

I will find the answer but it may not be today



I’ll be your friend while I’m still here

Provided of course that you forfeit your fear 

To him and not to me

Cause when it comes to this, I’m nothing



All Aside

We are fighting

for our lives

All Aside

We are fighting

for our precious lives.
Track Name: Blue Curtain
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.

The first thing that comes to mind is a twenty-one gun salute
I think it's hidden in the salt of the earth
And that you came 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.
Track Name: You Get The Me I Give You
You remind me of the birth of a friend of mine.
In the sense that I never saw you
But you take your place in my mind
Wholly without precedent

Within my heavy heart and hollow chest
There’s room enough for the dead not laid to rest
I mean I’ve been on a promenade or two
In every instance you get the me I…
You can break my heart or break my will or kiss my neck
But its superficial in every last respect
You can break my heart or break my will or kiss my neck
But it’s superficial
You get the me I…
You get it
Yeah yeah yeah you get it
You get it
Yeah yeah yeah

Do I remind you of the breadth of a better time?
I mean in a sense I’m integral to you
But I day when you say I die
Hold me darling, the way that you used to
Oh
Oh

Within my heavy heart and hollow chest
There’s room enough for the dead not laid to rest
I mean I’ve been on a promenade or two
In every instance you get the me I…
You can break my heart or break my will or kiss my neck
But it’s superficial in every last respect
You can break my heart or break my will or kiss my neck
But it’s superficial
You get the me I…
You get it
Yeah yeah yeah you get it
Oh You get it
Yeah

Oh it’s not the shape you take
But rather the form that you destroy
And oh it’s not the shape you take
But rather the form.

Oh it’s not the shape you take
But rather the form that you destroy
No no no, no no it’s not the shape you take
But rather the form
The form you destroy
The form you destroy

Within my heavy heart and hollow chest
There’s room enough for the dead not laid to rest
I mean I’ve been on a promenade or two
In every instance you get the me I…
You can break my heart or break my will or kiss my neck
But its superficial in all but the last respect
You can break my heart or break my will or kiss my neck
But it’s superficial
You get the me I…
I give you
You get the me i..
I give you
Yeah
Track Name: Ten
I will never forget the way you looked that night.

The glitter on your face beneath the stars so bright,

That I trouble myself trying to find the words

To articulate your beauty love it almost hurts



I’m aware that I’m supposed to bite my tongue

But that would be dishonest and dishonesty's no fun.

Is it your voice? your hair? the clothes you wear? that draw me to you

I think it’s everything you are, baby, everything you do.

You’re nervous ‘cuz you want me but you know there is someone else
you’re so well spoken, you could always figure me out.

Have you ever thought on me in a manner that wouldn’t expect?

Or have you ever dwelt on me and just wished you could forget?

Tell Me.

Could you forgive me please if I am overly blunt

It just aches and it pains and it just isn’t much fun

and the harder I try the further you get

Yeah it will be some time until it’s time to forget


I’m aware that I’m supposed to bite my tongue

But that would be dishonest and dishonesty's no fun.

Is it your voice? your hair? the clothes you wear? That draw me to you

I know it’s everything you are, baby, everything you do.

I’m nervous ‘cuz I want you but I know there is someone else.

You’re so well spoken you could always figure me out

Have you ever thought on me in a manner that wouldn’t expect?

Or have you ever dwelt on me and just wished you could forget?

Tell Me.

We move too fast and it’s over before it has a chance to last

we move too fast, it’s too fast, it’s too fast…



You’re nervous ‘cuz you want me but you know there is someone else
you’re so well spoken you could always figure me out.

Have you ever thought on me in a manner that wouldn’t expect?

Or have you ever dwelt on me and just wished you could forget? 

Tell Me…
Track Name: The Light Of Day
FOR BUT A MORSEL OF WHAT YOU’RE OFFERING
MY ONLY RECOURSE: SOME OTHER OFFERING
THERE ON THE BAR STOOL
ANOTHER SOUVENIR
A LIVING FOSSIL
PROVING THAT THE END WAS ALWAYS HERE

“THROUGH THE DARKNESS OF THE FUTURE PAST”
WE ALL LONG TO SEE

THAT’S WHY WE’RE CALLING OUT “BETWEEN TWO WORLDS”
“FIRE WALK WITH ME”


“THROUGH THE DARKNESS OF THE FUTURE PAST”
WE ALL LONG TO SEE

THAT’S WHY WE’RE CALLING OUT “BETWEEN TWO WORLDS”

HEY! THE NIGHT’S CUTTING THROUGH THE LIGHT OF DAY

THE WAY IT CUTS, THE WAY IT KILLS
HEY! I’M NEVER GONNA LET IT SLIP AWAY
NO NO NO NO

AND FOR THAT MORSEL OF WHAT YOU’RE OFFERING
MY ONLY RECOURSE: THE AFOREMENTIONED OFFERING
THERE ON THE BAR STOOL
YOU’RE JUST ANOTHER SOUVENIR
A LIVING FOSSIL
YOU’RE PROVING THAT THE END WAS ALWAYS HERE

“THROUGH THE DARKNESS OF THE FUTURE PAST”
WE ALL LONG TO SEE

THAT’S WHY WE’RE CALLING OUT “BETWEEN TWO WORLDS”
“FIRE WALK WITH ME”
“THROUGH THE DARKNESS OF THE FUTURE PAST”
WE ALL LONG TO SEE

THAT’S WHY WE’RE CALLING OUT “BETWEEN TWO WORLDS”

HEY! THE NIGHT’S CUTTING THROUGH THE LIGHT OF DAY

THE WAY IT CUTS, THE WAY IT KILLS
HEY! I’M NEVER GONNA LET IT SLIP AWAY
NO NO NO NO

(I WANT TO KNOW EXACTLY HOW DEEP IT GOES)
Track Name: To Apply An Even Hand
In thirty minutes I will burn out
But it’s thirty more before I get to your steps.
There I reconstitute an empire
With every hand that I slide beneath your dress

If I come clean about where i’ve been
You gotta promise not to puke
Until the dust sets in
And I’m attempting to explain
That it defies my mind that I could treat you so
Without the slightest inhibition, look at where I go
I’m not attempting a goddamn thing

Right after burning I am graceless
I sit and wonder why you’re even here
Until you take your place beside me
And it is long and stultified before it’s clear

If I come clean about where I’ve been
You gotta promise not to pule
Until the dust sets in
And I’m attempting to explain
That it defies my mind that I could treat you so
Without the slightest inhibition, look at where I go
I’m not attempting a goddamn thing

Well we could do a good job
We could take it where it needs to go
Or alternately
We could do it real bad
But I’m thinking that you already know
It doesn’t matter where it puts you
It doesn’t matter where it puts you
So long as you’re there.
So long as you’re there.
Track Name: Severance Package
Fresh out the frying pan
Into the fire
Where it’s always 3:33pm but it’s never time to retire

Don’t be some low down circus clown mountain of meat
Mirror the absence dripping from the people you meet
We wont be given any chance to ever do this again
And even if we were

You let it all fall down
And never pick it back up
I’ve never been so found
And I
And I
I’ve never been so lost

Shake the dust of ages from your shoulders and feet
And place your bets or shackles on the wicked or meek
Because it’s time

Replace that low down “not now” imprudence with heat
And melt the untold center of all the people you meet
We wont be given any chance to ever do this again
And even if we were

You let it all fall down
And never pick it back up
I’ve never been so found
And I
And I
I’ve never been so lost


Replace that low down “not now” imprudence with heat
And melt the untold center of all the people you meet
We wont be given any chance to ever do this again
And even if we were

You let it all fall down
And never pick it back up
I’ve never been so found
I’ve never been so lost
Track Name: The Depths Of Hell
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 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: In The Era
In the era of the great airborne plague
I fell in love with the murderers for redemption’s sake
And through November there was nothing we’d do
That could spare me the tide
Of the things we’d let through

In the era of the great airborne plague
It was hand in glove with the murderers for survival’s sake
And through December there was nothing you’d say
That could make me change mind
Or make me look the other way

I can no longer be with you Edith
I’ve loved you more than you could ever love me
And you know what –
There might be nothing wrong with that Edith,
I’ve been singing songs like you were gone
Before you ever said the word

This was not merely happenstance Edith
You feeling parched through the Ides of March
While we went the only way we knew how to go
So take solace in the fact that they never ever knew your heart
More than a smiled at stranger that you’d pass as you walk through the park
Long after dark

Can someone show me the spark?
Or a way to go
Show me the spark
Or a way to go
Because I don’t know

In the era of the great airborne plague
It was a house of cards full of murderers
That we laid to waste
And through forever there was nothing we’d do
That could spare me the tide of the things we’d let through.
Track Name: Shores Of Serotonin
These shores of serotonin
Are drying up
Drying up
Drying up

And it’s not that it comes without warning
But that you couldn’t clean it up
Couldn’t clean it up
Couldn’t clean it up

Because the center doesn’t hold
Maybe the center never held at all
So take it back from the past
Flown at half mast
For blood alcohol
It doesn’t matter what you say
It matters much less just what you do
So take it back from the past
Flown at half mast
From me to you

And I’ll show you someone more forlorn than
Any bitch that you pick up
For unrequited lust
To leave out on the cusp
And it’s not that it comes without warning
But that you couldn’t clean it up
Couldn’t clean it up
Couldn’t clean it up

Because the center doesn’t hold
Maybe the center never held at all
So take it back from the past
Flown at half mast
For blood alcohol
It doesn’t matter what you say
It matters much less just what you do
So take it back from the past
Flown at half mast
From me to you

And it goes on, all the live long today
For you to come home
Back around the same way
And oh
All the live long today
I want you back home

Because the center doesn’t hold
The center doesn’t hold, no

Because the center doesn’t hold
Maybe the center never held at all
So take it back from the past
Flown at half mast
For blood alcohol
It doesn’t matter what you say
It matters much less just what you do
So take it back from the past
Flown at half mast
From me to you

Because the center doesn’t hold
The center doesn’t hold, no
The center doesn’t hold
Maybe the center never held at all
So take it back from the past
Flown at half mast for blood alcohol
Alcohol
