Track Name: i live in a landfill
I live in a landfill full of great things
I live in a landfill oh the happiness it brings
I live in a landfill and just you wait
Soon everyone will live this way

All the things you throw away gets you closer to me
You’ll like it here I swear you will
You don’t have a choice do you

I live in a landfill culture and decay
I live in a landfill the things that you will miss someday
I live in a landfill and just you wait
Soon everyone will live this way

I’ve lived all over in cities and towns
Under water and underground
Who can say this stuff is trash
when this stuff clearly is the best.
Track Name: skipping stones
I’m skipping stones, you never learned

You couldn’t throw a pebble over a flat body of water

You’re telling lies, I never could

Let’s play games with our ignorance grow up to be fools



Bite your lip till it’s over and when it’s healed start again

I’m skipping stones, I’m breathing water, I’m banging my fucking head



And when my thoughts drift to you

I pick my skin till blood shows through

It’s like being a kid crying in front of your friends

Just embarrassed what the fuck was I thinking
Track Name: arms length
Arms length we stay away to keep our lives

the shells are spent strewn on the ground

faces blurred double vision I’m wrong again

how did I get here? how did I get here?

Where am I going? How did I get here?

I’ve been shot and am staying to rot.


Distance furthers on this ship

I sway with my thoughts on the wind

wandering mind glittering doom

how did I get here? how did I get here?

Where am I going? How did I get here?

I’ve been shot and am staying to rot.


Don’t touch me don’t come close

Prefer to be alone shadow and ash

my hands are my life scars show

how did I get here? how did I get here?

Where am I going? How did I get here?

I’ve been shot and am staying to rot.
Track Name: many colored death
Rotting away our heads in the sand
Incapable of standing on our own
Why wait tomorrow let’s get this over
Bite your tongue till there is blood on your lip

Why wait tomorrow we’ll all be the same
Caught in the same ship we’re going under
Ain’t it a shame to be so young and so useless?
Born with a map with no way how to read it

We’ve all fucked up we’ve lost our names again
Trying to be kings we’ve forgotten everything
Heads in the sand we’ll burn burn burn away
Tomorrow will hold nothing different
We’re rotting away.
Track Name: word and thread
Word and thread hand in hand
Stitching together sentence after sentence
Maybe this well save me maybe I’m just dramatic
One more page will lift me up again

It’s been three damn days and this rain keeps falling
I don’t have much to do these days so I’m not really complaining
Ink and paper chapter upon chapter
If my eyes could move just a little bit faster

I rode the wind and fought with kings
I watched someone die in the swamps of sadness
I skinned a tiger controlled fire
These printed pages make me feel alive
Track Name: hallucinations on the parkway
Hallucinations on the parkway at 3am these god damn bastards followed me home again
Foaming at the mouth, ripe with rage won’t anybody save me.

And if we all die alone, we get what we deserve
Maybe jesus could get down off his cross and let me have a turn

The earth was shaking, people were screaming, these things from the past, they just keep on gaining
Try as you might run as fast as you can you can never escape them

And if we all die alone, we get what we deserve
Maybe jesus could get down off his cross and let me have a turn

Let the Rariton overflow and take us all. Let this river rise up and take me home.
Track Name: on the way to cape may part two
Let’s play a game I’ll be the big strong man

You be the victim I won’t let this get out of hand

My fist like boulders your face is still just a face

I’ll fuck you up when you get out of place



What the fuck is wrong with these people

They’re not acting human

Devolving at the speed of fucking light



Are you listening you better open up this door

I’ll bust it down and make you scream you little whore

I’ve got a razor and you have such soft soft skin

I’ll tear you up if you don’t let me in



What the fuck is wrong with these people

They’re not acting human

Devolving at the speed of fucking light



On the way to cape may.
Track Name: fuel for the fire
People of the world spit fire on me

Cuz I’m coming up to swallow your seas

Bugs with their pinchers they burrow in deep

And the birds pick em off one by one



Nasty little birds with your horrible hunger

You take what you want and leave come winter

Now I’m left alone in a bad bad place

I hope I stay safe for another day



My branches are breaking

My leafs are falling

I’m being cut down

For fuel for the fire



People fucking come with their axes and their anger

Tonight I will be fueling their fire oh no

Oh no



I hear the people yelling for the city gates

Broken and barren I accept my fate

They gather me up out from under the sky

And tonight I will burn bright.



My branches are breaking

My leafs are falling

I’m being cut down

For fuel for the fire
