Track Name: Collapse
reflections, skipping light like a stone
photons rushing towards my eyes
spinning. resonance. loss of breath. directionless.
propogating waves and orbital decay.

Inspiral.

The waves keep collapsing--
in agony.
Inspiral.
Track Name: Johnny Dakota
subtraction, diffraction
no entropy
the cold wind cuts my skin,
porous and paper thin
abstracted reaction
those crooked teeth
temperature decreases
ventricular arrhythmia
eyes roll back
glimspes of synapses
knives cut through optic stalks
glimpses of synapses
lies cut through all your promises now

"we will go together,
i won't leave you alone"
Track Name: Oceanography
all words left in our throats
this somnolence,
a specter, that haunts this drive
as we divide
and erase all traces

(the end of this, as lonely as it began)

sun beat thoughts
dead, dried, lost
ground we walked
suffered, stalked
this wooden rot
empty and forgot
a room to my own
abandoned and alone

a light rain tapping on the window
pushing us to move on
hot summers never last
quite long enough for me
we were urged to sink
with water so inviting
I'm way too into me right now
and I couldn't imagine trying

You're good for me
I'm good for you too
if reality was just
as easy as it sounds

all words left in our throats
this somnolence,
a specter, that haunts this drive
as we divide
and erase all traces

(the end of this, as lonely as it began)
Track Name: Mark Warm II
Bar none
The filth has past
Sun light
Replenish life
Criss cross
The road has led

Thick skin
Watch the cliff
Foot prints seen below
Give all break bone

Wait on the bay
Escape the quick sand
Mouth wide open

Fast heavy breathing
Spreading through the woods
Mud slows down

Run fast
Can't scream
Beast dead
Track Name: Loudhailer
our signal is weak
always met with resistance
absorbed upon contact
and instantly destroyed
it just isn't worth it
expending energy on
information without meaning
in hopes of something better
Track Name: Diffusion
the color's running from my face
they're gonna ask if something's wrong
can't lock myself in here all night
they're gonna want some answers soon

how much longer til I leave here
how long have I been in here
you'll have to think of something
you can't ignore it anymore
try to control your breathing
keep your head between your knees

the sound of laughter down the hall
they don't even think I'm gone

how much longer til I leave here
how long have I been in here
you'll have to think of something

keep your head between your knees
Track Name: In Vacuo
keeping the shapes of the stars that you collided
burned into my mind
an afterimage fading away
my eyes shut tight
the death of the colors, delayed
wander towards the receding edge

lost fragment in a life reversed
the heat death of the universe
lost lament in a life reversed
the heat death of the universe
Track Name: Non-Essential Personnel
I don't think--
My anchor will hold
the winds of this storm, uncontrolled
I've drifted too far out to turn back now
the current and the open sea
engulfing and embracing me
the anchor drifting further away
I need you to stay asleep

the current and the open sea
engulfing and embracing me

burial at sea
we fill your lungs and let you drown
burial at sea
we fill your lungs and let you down

You set the sun when you closed your eyes
