Track Name: Pentacles
my hands are my doers oh
and im building a home
well i've got plans
and nothing to hide
except for these blueprints
engraved inside

well i could spend my whole life
gathering pentacles
until my cells start to rest
just like
just like the rest of us

well im not evil
im just a flapping ego
i am not evil im just a flapping ego
in the sun
in the sun
waooowaooowaooo



we are all walking products of lust
footprints in the metropolis
well your eyes of green and blue
i saw the world in you
but the desert winds
of your selfish winds
sacrificed what could have been

oh the animal kingdom is just trying to eat
what are you trying to do
perched in an endless breeze

but you are not evil
youre just a flapping ego
you are not evil youre just a flapping ego
in the sun
waooo in the sun
Track Name: Dreams Within Things
i've got a thousand anniversaries
and a million a million a million television memories
its more than it seems to be
dreams come dreams come dreams come to remind me

i have no idea what it feels like to thrive
i dont know how any of you survive
here we are, all of us,
longing to feel alive

it does nothing to pretend when you're so aware of the end
it does nothing to pretend when you're so aware of the end
i would rather rest in a fantasy
than rot in the truth
all the books ive read all the words ive said all the love ive seen
all the shadows in between

slack jaw in the void
blood of olives
blood of pomegranates
gushing through the garbage and cement
while my own blood gorges in my eyes
at any electric sunrise
with chemicals swirling swirling swirling
electric signals whirling whirling whirling
my reptillian brain squirming squirming squirming

it does nothing to pretend when you're so aware of the end
it does nothing to pretend when you're so aware of the end
i would rather rest in a fantasy
than rot in the truth
Track Name: No Skin
your dangerous
at least you've proved to be
so why do i put it all in you
i'm more comfortable
giving you my blood as you bleed
being this is unlike me
and i chose you
to be my mercy
swimming in agony
a pattern of tragedy
and i don't partake in the visceral smiles
and you don't mistake your heartbreak for trials
but in the wake of my melody
you dragged me from complacency
awoke a ghost in me
made a fool of me
so maybe if it wasn't a risk
then i wouldn't take it
maybe if it was a sure thing then i would
fake it
a brick tied to my feet my head barely surfaced
but at least i can still breathe
but i can't leave

because it feels like i have no skin
oh it feels like i have no skin
and i sink when i breathe you in
oh it feels like i have no skin

inspect me with your microscope
prode me with your metal spoke
guide me to the land of hope
set it ablaze with one misguided joke
smoke billows out of these holes
you found the masterpiece within me
the outlet of grief
and the colored shade
of your vivid gaze
refracts my purpose
and leaves me humbled
it leaves me humbled
and i didn't realize how asleep i was
until you woke me with a dream
you showed me i'm alive zombified my heart
you resurrected a deaf passion in me
nurse my wounds
nurse my wounds
nurse my wounds i'll try not to scream

because it feels like i have no skin
oh it feels like i have no skin
and i sink when i breathe you in
oh it feels like i have no skin
Track Name: Tracing The Grooves
there's a fire
burning
at the end of his toes
so he's gotta keep moving
keep pacing
keep tracing the grooves in his mind
dragging chains of voices
that for others speak softly
they only hear them in dreaming
but his roar violently
they won't stop screaming

while he keeps
tracing the grooves in his mind
tracing the grooves in his mind
tracing the grooves in his mind
he keeps tracing those grooves

there are
sparks of
brilliance
showering
in every direction
so he's never left losing
he's choosing
he's using
that boundless focus
adding weight
to his choices

still he keeps
tracing the grooves in his mind
tracing the grooves in his mind
tracing the grooves in his mind
he keeps tracing those grooves

his decisions are fueled with tinder
fanning the flames with regret
terrified a moment will linger
before he has time to forget

a steely shield severs some sentiment but surely it soothes something
there's a terror tearing
turning tears
telling lies
between his ears and his eyes

it helps to keep
tracing the grooves in his mind
tracing the grooves in his mind
tracing the grooves in his mind
he keeps tracing those grooves

there's a restless
wind blowing
underneath his skin
so he's gotta keep roaming
keep going
keep sewing his open eyes
filling houses with objects
that never quite fill his soul
though they are gold and dazzling
he's alone without no one
empty rooms everlasting

so he keeps
tracing the grooves in his mind
tracing the grooves in his mind
tracing the grooves in his mind
he keeps tracing those grooves

his condition is full of secrets
locking the door to his chest
alone he roars in his bedroom
crying and damning all the rest

a steely shield severs some sentiment but surely it soothes something
surely it soothes something
surely it soothes something
