Track Name: Worn Out Deal
joy in this room
oh how we made a garden
years passed by
inside these walls

slow decay
and how you pay to be pardoned
years passed by
death in a childs eye

what do i do
stick to you as a stranger
hate blinds dogs
in these halls

no one knows
no one ceases their hunger
birds fly by
death in a childs eye

i will know which way is real
and clarify notions that all things rise
burn and broke this worn out deal
see to sky that i am kind

falling out
taking our time to be honest
vines climb high inside these walls

more that i make
more in my hands than these numbers
vines climb high
death in a childs eye

for anything i am gone
Track Name: Fellow
I feel like a new born babe
im empty as the room
when you were wide and waning off your moon

on top of new hill
the waitress you did blame
i hear the rain tap the window and tint your shame

and i claim to know you
in an effort to be known
heavy as a stone warm from sun glow

oh death brings such strange dreams
and the world laughs and mourns and pulls its wire
will i bound by these waves of desire
and was i born to swim in this fire

i want to knead it in a soft glow
as some spirit pours crawls from a crack below
and i want to keep her in a glass house
as some feature

and i can hear some fellow waking up

collapse keep it sane all this worry in the world
and it takes to watch this castle burn

wild heart burning midnight oil
feed it till it bursts
was it a child that watched this wheel turn

i claim to know you
in an effort to be known
heavy as a stone warm from sun glow

oh death brings such strange dreams in our time what else sings
Track Name: Motel
mary likes receiving when the giving gets her down
and her whole life worth leaving as the others wear their crowns so brightly

oh how the light of an altered sense saved us through these waged days
oh i'll settle up what i've saved

in low dark dreams this love was hardly known
say what you mean as you hold that towel so tightly

oh how the light of an altered sense saved us through this warm maze
oh i'll settle up what i've saved

i sat alone in late autumn
sippin life from a coffin
in motels old haunts
motels thin walls

i am 23
a bearer of a wild curse
thats mixed with apple core
