Track Name: Serpentine
My lungs stone and my days all serpentine
The tight tightness in my chest rest and subsides
In one dull dawn with a hum that split its length
Does my name sting your tongue now does it babe
Your thin frame has set my eyes to fray
On our dim stretch of this street, how it aches
For every gray and sad hemmed heart to coil
And our frail eyes and their whites to finally toll
Now one brash phrase could crush this fragile day
As my thoughts swirl in some shrill sad cannonade
The one such spur that caused my throat to creak
The one dull dawn I’ve sentenced to repeat
Track Name: The Last Parade On Ann St.
The last parade on Ann St babe, was when the frost leaves sounded like glass
When we burnt down the whole damn block with a wink, and just one match
Well the site I reside in now, its new grove but same old ghosts
But I owe to the one before, because it’s the one that stained my voice
But the last one, yeah the last one
Was to burn us out
Track Name: Every Wall You Own
Say your prayers before your eyelids roll
On every single lie you’ve told
Let the name of your love be known
On every single wall you own
Raise your wrist and caw and claw
With every single breathe you draw
Track Name: Smiles Like A Fist
Say a prayer for the damaged day cmon
Suited up to approximate the dawn
Well the streetlights now are a company kiss
And they buried your bones within the wet pavement
Because you smile like a fist
Smile like a fist
Smile like a fist
Well the trees all died where the dropper had hit
And the resin it left is still claiming your wrist
Because you smile like a fist
Smile like a fist
Smile like a fist
Smile like a fist
Track Name: Madison House
All our rows and tones are golden
And every home we’ve known is sentenced
And I’m no asking you to change your name
But I can’t see you, I can’t see you now
I’ll cut away somehow
Left a hole in the cold September dawn
On, the day I go
Its known to snow where I was born
And when approached all borders atone
And I’m not asking you to save my place
But I can’t leave you, I can’t leave you now
I’ll cut away somehow
Left a hole in the cold September dawn
On, the day I go
Track Name: Cold Fusion (Snakes)
Your cheeks so warm its wet
My spine is so dry it cracked
Within a tiny home
The tornado of drugs I own
I know that you never sleep
Cold Fusion, seen combat
And oh how the sun will leak
When I race god, in New England
And I saw you on the street
In 2 years, Chicago
And serpents they covered me,
And I screamed out
I screamed out
And I’ll marry you right now
Just scream and cut this crowd
And I’ll put this damn thing down
Or throw my body out
I know that you never sleep
Cold fusion, seen combat
And oh how the sun will leak
When I race god in new England
And I saw you on the street
In two years, Chicago
And serpents they covered me
And I screamed out, and I screamed out
Stop,
Please
Track Name: A Flash Of Light Followed By
There was a flash of light, followed by chaos
On the night, the moon hit my backyard
There was a flash of light, followed by silence
And the deep desire to dust my chin with a finer ash
And the air got cold and the sky got dark
And I kissed your lips With the safety off
There was a flash of light, followed by witness
And I held you there in the rose tint click when the street lights dim
And my eyes got black, and my breathe got cold
And my lid screamed tight, and my arms they roared
Track Name: Restless
Restless is the way that I walk
Safety is a word that I burnt
Comfort is a call I can crush
And coming it down it never felt wrong
So I know now that there is no god
And new love new love is my new lord
Coming down it never felt wrong
Cause my new love my new love is young
Track Name: Last Wine Of Winter
I have a room with a cot and fixture and I have a cork in the last wine of winter
I have friends who drink in the cupboards rope for a neck and smoke for a brother
I hear taps ring out in the city when I go for walks on late Friday evenings
I have a room and you should come over because It has a roof and the last wine of winter
I have a room with a cot and fixture and I have a cork in the last wine of winterI have friends who drink in the cupboards
rope for a neck and smoke for a brotherI hear taps ring out in the city when I go for walks on late Friday eveningsI have a
room and you should come over because It has a roof and the last wine of winter
Track Name: Do What's Easy
Do what’s easy, steal every red cent from the wishing well
Smoke cigarettes till your chest rattles like hell
Just do what’s easy
Waste every evening, don’t ever read and don’t ever right
Never leave home and get drunk every night
Just do what’s easy
Hate completely, let every wall feel the force of your fist
Forget your debts cause forgiveness exists
Just do what’s easy
Track Name: Coda (Ann St. Pt. 2)
Every choke I choose,
coda case of the true love blues
Tie me down or I will run
Tie me down and I will run
And each inept embrace
Spirals into a sick refrain
When two hearts are in tune
When two hearts are a tomb
And in your sordid glow
Your not the one who should sing so slowly
When your eyes move so fast
When your eyes move so sad
The only ghosts I knew
Were the pages I wished into
Some sad savior of yours
Some sad stain on your door
And what you scratched in dirt
The crumbling chords that compose your worth
When a spears in your side
When there’s blood in your eyes
