Track Name: Bless You
You scream and turn blue when you tell me to do
not as you do but as you say
but that isn't right you see
black and white when all of your life’s engulfed in grey
you can keep your dirty looks half-hearted recitations
from a moldy book collecting dust upon a shelf
saving your love for nobody but yourself a crowd
had gathered some million odd people in a race to climb
a burning steeple
each one hoping to graze a blind man’s toes
but when the leaders fall the sheep will follow

I had a dream that you were right and
one day you bought the farm the pearly gates were lacking luster
but still had their charm st. peter scanned the list said you done less good than harm
i hope you packed some shorts
‘cause son you’re going somewhere warm
you tell yourself i’ll be okay
if you just sit back and pray for some god to pull me through
so that you don’t have to
but if you truly were so wise you’d know you’re only speaking lies
‘cause everyone who tries to get to heaven dies
Track Name: Garmonbozia
shrink from invented illusions and potential abuse
trust nothing and trust nobody
they say faith keeps men afloat
but that is only a ruse for those afraid to be lonely
good fortune comes but still i close my eyes denying
every connection i will forgive but

i won’t soon forget these self-inflicted transgressions
digging softly through mounds of blackened ashes seeking
silver looking through shit-tinted glasses roll out red carpet for paranoia
and bad luck my most constant of companions
flash a wide grin and pretend not to give a fuck submerged
in gracious libations good fortune comes and tries to light my way
but i doubt it’ll do any good for i am still unwilling to believe it’s anything but falsehood
Track Name: summoner
laid down on the side of the road grip’s slippin and it’s starting to show locked in winter’s stranglehold
one hand on my neck and one on my heart but i refuse to succumb to the cold the burden is great but
there’s no need to stand all that is required is to hold up the sun in the air with both hands bask in the light and the warmth
that it brings band together and summon the spring swim up and away fight to breathe rapid currents pull me beneath thrash for life
to sink further instead unable to rise from the riverbed but there’s
no need to stand all that is required is to hold up the sun in the air with
both hands feel your skin turn gold in its rays band together and banish malaise
