Track Name: First Awful
In some circles thoughts are raging
Think in circles gets you written off
It can all outweigh you
Be the bait, or try to wait
And get long lost

I found out what that town is all about
Too dark

First awful that took ten years
And lost the meaning
Here and there with some
It's all there, I went all in and followed up
How'd that go, it's all gone

I found out what that town is all about
Too dark

Patted down, counted out
Forget it now

Too dark

Who's with me
If nobody is, do it over
Track Name: Leavearly
On display at the onset
Another way to connect
One not without a retreat
Replace remains with repeats
Leavearly each chance I get
When you'd swear it's not time yet
In transit from the masses
Forfeited rights to brag

In bed within the hour
Relieved of my eyefuls
Recovering time

Ready to close the curtain
All set to let it end
And then I will wake for certain
And do it over again
Not as good as what you did
Not in a competition
Not as concerned with closure
As overexposure

In bed within the hour
Relieved of my eyefuls
Recovering time

Recovering time
Re-realize
We realign
Relief in my eyes

Leavearly each chance I get
When you'd swear it's not time yet
In transit from the masses
Forfeited rights to bragging
On display from the outset
Another way
Track Name: Tiebreak
They are where I was before
I won't turn up anymore
Now I've turned down even more
Like I never made a sound
So I'm making noise now
It's the last go-around
Search in aether for a dream
No refunds when sobering
Might have known as much entering

Here's a heartbeat that's sodden with weeds
Here's a product in mourning that bleeds
With a song that is jammed in between
There's a tiebreak at morning for me

Chanting lines of emptiness
No use to remember them
Final pulse is being spent
Selling everything I own
Keeping them is failure prone
Future is really taking hold
All I have is up for sale
Here now is the final nail
In a case that I pled and failed

Here's a heartbeat that's sodden with weeds
Here's a product in mourning that bleeds
With a song that is jammed in between
There's a tiebreak at morning for me
Track Name: You've Got To
Bathed in lurid green light
You're seeing
There is no right-hand man
On the side
Though there have been
Hitting their stride
But they missed!
Settling with permanent remembrance
Reconvene or intervene
Bereave it or abbreviate it

Who ran away?
As it would say
You can't change the past anyway

So, still here, but not in gear
Held on, not always strong
Attempts went unattended
There to hear, but nowhere near there
All in all, choose to choose
Wouldn't want you to have to
Bathe in sickly green light
Where things have been lit for some time

Who ran away?
As it would say
You can't change the past anyway

Who ran away?
As it would say
I can't have peace longer than you please
Track Name: Phantom Power
Tired refrain
As you know it's over now
Breaking frames
To just maintain this loss somehow
The white domain
Stuck in misty frozen clouds
Watcher of the same
I maintain I lost it now

Overcoming one or two
Doesn't mean it's really through
Track Name: Anyone
Recent rash of cancellations
Pick landmarks for signs
Extremities of failed relations
Bruised on the inside
A series of slow motion tangles
Crept up to the fore
A lengthy effort disintegrates
With no call, no show
I'm the one who always calls
As another guy has doubts
Divided states of mind expire
Cancel each other out

To anyone

And now we won't call
Remotely dissolve

Reinterpret messages
Scattered on the ground
Ready for negated purpose
Causes are devolved
Unrelated depths collide
I won't claim I'm not the cause
Waiting by the door inside
With barricaded thoughts
Everyone has let me hang
Gave in and not calling out
I can't call it anything
So it's dot dot dot

To anyone
Anyone

And now we won't call
Remotely dissolve
Track Name: Unsurrounded
It's always heard eventually
Some s**t about setting things free
It's not unique at all
Just an unresponded call
Still trying to get your take
On an indefinite break
It was easily outrun
In a case of one on none

Unlike true oneness
Which might do wonders
It's like your absence
Never grew fondness
And it never will

That scene was there and gone
And ended up getting rained on
Take it upon yourself
When surroundings become unsound
Under-indulging me
A little madness to be free
Lower highs with higher lows
In a place no one ever goes

Unlike true oneness
Which might do wonders
It's like your absence
Never grew fondness
And it never will
Track Name: If I Can't
I don't know why I'm surviving every lonely day
When there's got to be no chance for me
My life would end
And it doesn't matter how I try
Those tears of love are a waste of time
And turned away
Am I strong enough to see it through
Go crazy is what I will do

If I can't have you, I want no one
And if I can't have you, I don't know
If I can't have you, I want no one
And if I can't have you, I don't know how

Can't let go of surviving every lonely day
When there's got to be no chance for me
It never ends
And it doesn't matter how I try
I gave it all so easily
And turned away
To dreams that never will come true
Am I strong enough to see it through
Go crazy is what I will do

If I can't have you, I want no one
And if I can't have you, I don't know
If I can't have you, I want no one
And if I can't have you, I don't know how
Track Name: No Unless
Let me out, take me out
Got really lost out there some time ago
Just sat and stared from the top of the road
Wait it out, play it out
Just wondering where did everyone go?
So much finality here on my own

Bottomless, can't express
There's no unless

Thought about passing out
A lot of people turned the other way
Just like they've always done up to that day
Turned around, shook it off
I tried to call across to someone there
Who only spoke out to somebody else

Motionless, no contest
There's no unless

Later now, playing it down
There's not much stigma now to be adrift
It's just your time to fall into this pit
Wait around, fading out
Until you hear it from someone you know
It's not for certain just what's going on

No duress, no blame left
There's no unless
