Track Name: Specificshun
Not anything is here to hover
Over he who hides out like no other
Trying to write about what is left
Just tap your fingers, what did you expect

One and only one
With a real specificshun

A cloth is there at a breathlike angle
With the multitudes away in a manger
By my count I’m out
Right back at you
Setting my sights on the sidelines in this room

One and only one
With a real specificshun
Track Name: Randomain
Barely belong at all in this disagreeable world
Pushing for the end of the day to be mercifully short again
I looked all around and found that I looked nervous
To a host unknown who served no purpose
On a neverending hill, to be sure that I am up against
When a deeper nature calls, and cuts me off and said

It’s random
To be alone

Always hear the end of it with universal unwillingness
While the wind blows cold again by dint of blacklist action
I’m not soaring outwardly, you must take the time to understand
I waited around and found that I was weightless
When a deeper nature calls and cuts me off and said

It’s random
To be alone

It’s random
To stay alone

It’s evil
And me - I’m done
Track Name: Downturner
Not to dwell on yesteryear’s strains
But they were never made right
And everyone including me had the outcome in sight

Now the decades have left me trained
Not to unlearn but to unwind
And to see you calling now is a stain on my mind

I’m not answering whatever you try
There’s no shame in waking up on my side
Here’s to dreaming with an open mind
And I could pass you up a thousand times
It’s time

It had seemed like things were tailor-made
And we could give it all time
Now I’m reminded your mind’s dead if you still want mine

It mattered not what the signs said
I believed in all the lies
Till that time that I was left out there to die

Not to dwell on yesteryear’s days
They are way out of sight
And you can come unglued instead this time

I’m not answering whatever you try
There’s no shame in waking up on my side
Here’s to dreaming with an open mind
And I could pass you up a thousand times
It’s time
Track Name: Formaladies
Always remember an entrancing entrance
It’s in the rear view mirror now
But closer than it appears
Whirlwinds and a slippery turning point
An unavoidable void
Announcing you can’t stay here
I’m the one it matters to
I’m the one who’s damaged here
I’m not left with any doubts
I don’t get to choose what stands out
Forever imprint denial
Track Name: Absenvy
The dramatic is easy
Talking straight less so

Appeal to certain instincts
Then leave them to survive

A victimless mirage
Is all you see in your wake
In your wake

You are both arms in the gutter
You are too late to relate

It’s a must to adjust
And not be neonatal

But this mistrust is
Bordering on fatal

The disgrace came easy
Your absence less
Much less so

You are both arms in the gutter
You are too late to relate
Track Name: Incubated
Incubated
And it won’t grow
And you taste it
And you don’t know
Track Name: Cryptomystic
Refuge
Revive
Relive
Again

Resist
Clamor
That dampers
Reprieves

A storm army of like minds
If ever I get left behind

While I sense it
I’m not defensive
Exploring the domain of crying

Thorn-shaped
Armor
Removal
Again

Venture
Outbound
Extolling
Suspense

A storm army of like minds
If ever I get left behind

While I sense it
I’m not defensive
Exploring the domain of crying

Retreat
Cycle
Goes on
And off

Refuge
Revive
Relive
Again

A storm army of like minds
If ever I get left behind

While I sense it
I’m not defensive
Exploring the domain of crying
Track Name: Skating On Thin Ice
You want to feel the glory
You’ll stay on top the world
You’re sure you’ll remain the same
But you won’t, it’s not a game
Because you’re skating on thin ice
You’re messing with your life

Soldier alone
There’s no one here
Boy you’re alone
Suppressed your fear
Soldier alone

Fascination
Seduction
Gratification
Self-destruction

Soldier alone
There’s no one here
Boy you’re alone
Suppressed your fear
Soldier alone

I don’t believe in dreams
Fun is all I need
Spirit is my motivation
I’ll do it with dedication
But I’m skating on thin ice
I’m messing with my life

Soldier alone
There’s no one here
Boy you’re alone
Suppressed your fear
Soldier alone

Playing games with your life
Track Name: Mention Made
And I could make a living on your back
And keep just enough of myself in tact
Hell has enlarged to take up everything
Inhabitants have nothing they could bring
The outside world routinely just drops dead
One can’t unlearn all that they left unsaid
But I do
I do

With no mention made
No words of praise
No promised land
There’s no other way

And just then when things were going so good
It all evaporated right where I stood
The majority is pejorative
Living for thunderstorms is elusive
These recollections are what I do best
Talking to plants is what I would suggest
Because every side is responsible
For cohesion in positive lull
And I do
That’s what I do

With no mention made
No words of praise
No promised land
There’s no other way

Track Name: Reservexed
I don’t even care
I don’t want to feel
Anything ever again
It is too hard to believe
I am paying for air
With costs frightful and real
Consider it unfair
But you will see

Someday I will plunge down like sparks
Someday I will follow my heart on down

Diplomacy and patience
For everybody else
All of their times have takers
While my subsistence melts
Here’s a mission in remission
With talking points crossed out
In a thunderous demolition
You will find out

Someday I will plunge down like sparks
Someday I will follow my heart on down

Let me guess - I’m in your way
And you think that I should care
And you are here to stay
And you like to stare
But I saw where the wind begins
I went and looked that far
And I heard where the breeze ends
So just you watch

Someday I will plunge down like sparks
Someday I will follow my heart on down
