Track Name: Crave
stimulate incessantly
give into me, the temperamental child
cuz all i want is all i need is all i got
so get down on your knees, please

feed me

i want you
i crave you
i crave

bottles and bottles a day

blessed be the spineless freak who chokes to eat
the essence of denial
cuz only when the beast is fed will blisters shed
and crack a bitter smile, a smile
how i fucking crave you

all i want is all i need is all i got
please...
feed me

i crave you
i crave

bottles and bottles a day

all i want is all i need is all i got is all i want is all i need is all i got is all i want

how i fucking crave you
Track Name: Choke
let it out

toxic, tempting angels
pouring pavement on a problem
frantic, filling holes of dying souls
unconscious degradation

often overwhelmed by every avenue of chance
often much too full to swallow fate and let it dance

realize...open your eyes

laughing, little magnets
they keep moving us along
virus of the ages, so contagious is our own denial
why ya holdin' back and keepin' in, what's with the isolation?
when will we collapse into a trance of open dream?

see it all before neglecting every doubt
be the one to go down the hole and choke it out
see it all before dissecting every doubt
be the one to go down the hole and choke it out

i need water
so unstable
come and choke it out from in me

somehow...get away from this

let it out
Track Name: Petite Mort
i choose my truth

i do
like to die
enjoy the view

cold, drifting needs
dressed in dream, dignified and
bold, bleeding means
focus me, intentionalizing

the goad on top of me
leashed in dream, sync into mind and
psychedelically
lube esteem, slippin' around inside

i choose my truth

i do
like to die
enjoy the view

i choose my truth

i do
like to die
enjoy the view
Track Name: Integrate
head up in the clouds
feet are off the ground
head up in the clouds
feet are off the ground

head up in the clouds
feet are off the ground
head up in the clouds
you better come back down
Track Name: Broken
you say i'm broken
so broken, so damaged
and trade me in for
a better mechanic
i don't know

you say you want me
you need me
then vanish
and say you love me
then take me for granted
how i know

you say it's over
so over, so tragic
then fade into what
a hopeless romantic?
god i know, i know

you break me in two
and shatter the fragments
and sweep it up like nothing
like nothing just happened
a puzzle to remember
forever a fragment
two pieces of the broken
so broken, so damaged
i don't know
don't know

you've given me the love i wanted and i needed, i'm ecstatic
you take away the pain i wanted, i needed, i'm just manic
you've given me the love i gave you, i made you, so tragic
you've given away the pain i need you, i break you, i'm just manic

i said it's over, so over
don't panic
so who the fuck is broken?
so broken?
so damaged?
Track Name: Living Is Strange
living is strange

we barely feel alive
we chase around the mind
we breathe to stay alive
and scream with such delight

living is strange

we barely change our mind
we chase around a high
we bleed to stay alive
and scream with such delight

living is strange
Track Name: Giving In
giving into a crowd
you can start to feel the weight
giving intent
what you might say
individual things
that we're waiting to transcend
all over now
hoping to ascend my...

giving in to ego-tripping trust-fund fantasies
like a movie now
eating what you crave
individual things
that we're waiting to transcend
don't be alarmed
i'm going to ascend
my

mind my mind
opening
i gave my light
leave me be

open up to me
open up to me
Track Name: Metaphor
don't cry
sink back in the fear and roll open your eye
the majesty of the mind

don't try
let go of control and allow her to guide
you will remain a part of it

the same patterns
recognized forms
the same matter
crystalline core

the wave

who we are
who we are
the same patterns
elements of love

the same metaphor
the same
metaphor

the way we are

don't cry
sink back in the fear and roll open your eye
you will remain a part of it
Track Name: This Is It
oh i feel it coming alive
Track Name: Away
away
