Track Name: Aristocratic Hands
Exposed to a brand new pose
Have a witty quote
Always writ by wrote
Pushed off till I hit dry land
Tore up my plans
With aristocratic hands

Dead tired of a dead dog's eye
Rattling a stick
In a swill bucket
Climb stairs just to put on airs
Or tear up my plans
With aristocratic hands
Track Name: Nomads
I don't like to put stock in
Wandering bronze age nomads
Thinking with just their gonads
Better run through the desert
Hallucination, heat stroke
Uncouth saber-tooth turncoat

Grip the cord that binds
Bleed into my eyes
It comes as no surprise
In time

I don't like the sounds I hear
The cold reproach of voices
Recounting piss-poor choices
Better go be constructive
Shout at a glassen ashtray
If it makes you feel more sane

Grip the cord that binds
Bleed into my eyes
It comes as no surprise
In time
Track Name: Snatching Defeat
Snatching defeat
From jaws of victory
The joys of misery
Can make your life complete

Here is a lesson that I own
I am here with you while I am alone
Winter may come only never to go
I must remain made of stone

Wandering through
The garden of lost youth
The crush and solitude
The dark, unkempt, imbued

Here is a lesson that I own
I am here with you while I am alone
Winter may come only never to go
I must remain made of stone
Track Name: Meander
Pretend you're me
Make a command decision
Locate the leak
Plug it up with precision

This is a handshake
This is a not-so-fond farewell
Nobody likes someone who's always fake
I'll see you burn in hell

Up periscope
Go give yourself a gander
Pretend there's hope
And let your thoughts meander

This is a handshake
This is a not-so-fond farewell
Nobody likes someone who's always fake
I'll see you burn in hell

Well since the advent of quill and pen
I've written many sweet sentiments
To those I resent

Pretend you're me
Make a command decision
Locate the leak
Plug it up with precision

This is a handshake
This is a not-so-fond farewell
Nobody likes someone who's always fake
I'll see you burn in hell
I'll see you down in hell
Track Name: Guest and Host
At my best
The lonesome, crowded west
Has put me to the test
If I must confess
Fever dream
Cut up, then received
As a cold witch's teat
By which to cut teeth

Watching the spirit chained to a post
Do you think you could give up the ghost
You love the most
Severing the link between guest and host

Brassy eyed
On gorge and mountain range
From a bookend of meaningless
Thoughts, strayed and strange
Decomposed
On some memorial wall
Three feet deep underneath
Never felt so tall

Watching the spirit go up in smoke
You laugh but you don't get the joke
Simply misspoke
Guest and host were one but now they're broke
