Track Name: Hi-Def OD
HI DEF OVERDOSE

this life was a digital file
organized on 20 hard drives
made a splash in the WordPress world
typed opinions with my upper lip curled

my shame spiral has gone viral
please defrag me
safe-eject me
was a hit on someone's playlist
posthumously 5-star-rate me

compressed and comatose
hi definition overdose
no mother but the motherboard
added memory and i'm reborn
this life was a digital file
ashes scattered over 20 hard drives
hands sutured to a dead keyboard
and the legacy will be restored

no one ever saw me in the daytime
in the night just a shadow on a blind
140 characters and i can't die
HD version of my suicide

i disgraced my interface
the monitors just look dishonest
USBs are all i see
upload to eternity

this life was a digital file
organized on 20 hard drives
legacy is in the comment threads
on the web i can never be dead
Track Name: Never-Ending Dive
NEVER ENDING DIVE

she was 23
dragged out to the sea
to the sea

he was 25
something half ate him alive
ate him alive

the party starts
when the dusk eats the sun
but tonight
i will wait
on all fours
til it comes

this never ending dive
comes to you loud n live
bring out the audience
sing the overture
this never ending dive
comes to you loud and live
bring on the orchestra
la-da-da-da...

they are the stars
but no one knows who they are
who they are
theirs is a stage
built on fear and
pure black rage

the curtain falls
when the dusk eats the sun
til the dawn i will wait
on all fours
for you to come

chorus

the party starts
when they pull on the bell
the dogs of war
come to life
and run fourth into this hell
curtain falls
when the dusk eats the sun
in the wings
i kill the lights
and i wait for you to come
Track Name: Sleeping With Fishes
SLEEPING WITH THE FISHES

slowing time drains into the carpet
days unwind - dust settles into yr bones

some violent birth
brought you to earth
black as a spy
whatever spat you to life
fled in the night and never returned

all the little fish who wash up
every bird who wakes up dead
all the boys who raise their guns up
are the bullets in yr head


slowing time
melts into the fabric
years unwind
rust settling in yr joints

some of yr tribe
they tried to hide
right in the sun
if pleasure's measured in red,
even the bugs in yr bed
have already won
Track Name: Underneath Your Skin
UNDERNEATH YR SKIN

digging thru the floor
tryin' to find an open door
gotta crawl and hide
from yr desecrated pride

ooh ain't what you wanted
ooh this house is haunted

yer shaken thru
what's got into you?
why yr parts unglued?
it's all come true
every filthy shoe's
on yr avenue

tearin' thru the night
like a shotgun blast
looking for a diamond in
a city of trash

ooh aint' what you wanted
ooh this house is haunted

yer shaken thru
what's got into you?
why yr parts unglued?
it's all come true
every filthy shoe's
on yr avenue
you're dead again
you can see the end
but you can't begin
now who ya frightened of?
that a hand inside yr glove?
someone got right underneath yr skin
Track Name: Armageddon Sun
ARMAGEDDON SUN

something with too many legs
pulled to the shoulder
kissy wet snow in its eyes
blinking rusted
something with too many eyes watches
from the corner
rattling around like a stone
in a tin can on the highway

armageddon sun
shining on the vacancy
love was left for no one
purified for apathy

creaking of dust in the joints
in the mouth of the owner
thrashing round and round in the pool
with all my fellow drowners
(headlight beams poking into someone else's dreams)

armageddon sun
shining on the vacancy
love was left for no one
purified for apathy

someone with too many hands
on the buttons
Track Name: Whole World Drowns
WHOLE WORLD DROWNS

i got telescope eyes
i got black helicopter skies
i got conspiracy stock
i got terror on the clock

and when it all breaks down
i can laugh alone as the whole world drowns

i got the place to hide
when the sea begins to rise
i see right thru the lies
i got spies for the spies

and when it all breaks down
i'll be high and dry as the whole world drowns
as the whole world drowns
