Track Name: A GREAT DIVIDE
A new view is forming
My [eyes] have grown
This world is changing

When the tide comes
New shapes are born
Eroding the earth
And left deformed

(The stone becomes worn
Underneath the bone
Never is the sun
The air is cold)

I’m drowning in this
(Passive) existence
It’s hard to breathe
It’s hard to see

Cathartic decay
Wasting a life
[[Overt]] display
Rotting away
Track Name: VEIN
[[Vain
inside brain shame
Speak]]
Say what you mean
Take
EVERYTHING MINE

Mind

Mind mind
Everything is mine
Everything is mind
Find everyoneis(fine)
Everyone is (lie)


Mind
Everything is fine
Shame (Saywhatyoumean)
Everything is fine
Clean
Everything is mind
Mind
Say what you mean


Mind mind
Find everything fine

Find everything is find
Fine everyone is
Find everyone is

LIE

Lie lie lie lie

Why lie why lie why lie why lie LIE

Vain you're coursing like
Breeding images
Made of mind set
And cold like glass human
Track Name: ST. ANTHONY'S FIRE
Make to ache like bone inbred
Blind your stare ofprimal stone
Wed to morn to cry and then
Fill my head with certain death

Lie am I

Find it in the final call
Turn to hear a silent friend
Trust the world to suffer you
Now the grain is grinding back

Lie am I
Track Name: OLDOWAN LITHICS
We the earth
Feed the dirt
Worm this crown
Rot the ground

[[Force brain into born(bone)]]

??: Believe in being (me)

Will the earth
Fix the dirt
Worm this crown
Rot the ground

Painting
The walls of your cave
G(r)asping
At what you have made

Shedding,
the animal (weights)
(He’s waiting for you)
Track Name: LAKE TURKANA
Waterbreather
Aquarius

Maybe question?
To know answer


such hope is shallow
(leave me for the wild)
hide in this hollow
filled with emptiness

grave mold of furrow
unfolding mine
deep in this marrow
i know your (kind)

Waterbreather
Aquarius

such hope is shallow
leave () for the wild
hide in this hollow
full with emptiness

grave mold of furrow
unfolding mine
deep in this marrow
i know your kind

Waterbreather

[different words]
Track Name: A COELACANTH
[gasp
choking on air]

thisfish is quickto crawl on land
but with no lungs to carry air
(drowns) on the ground

[[dive too deep to find answers]]

[gasp
choking on air] this fish

ascend land of poison air
far from what you know
ask for promises
you're an arid ocean

([*a fish with
legsrunningfrantically*])


ascend land of poison air
far from what you know
ask for promise inanimate
you're an arid ocean
Track Name: HANDS
You've waited your
whole life for this
Hands don't faile me now

I gave my damn home toy
Hands don't fail me now
Hands don't (fall) me now!

Working
Your whole life away
Hands unfolding
I (pray)

When the (brain)comeshome again
Images just turn around
In the body I am (bred)
----------------------------

Working
Your (hole) life away
Hands unfolding
I, prey
Track Name: SULCUS AND GYRUS
Break the chain of knowing
Animal lie dormant
((in the fold))
Teach the grain of sowing
Reach the sound to follow
((each is own))

I AM GONE

Sea shells
Form us
Encode
Fractal universe

Break the chain of knowing
Animal lie dormant
((in the fold))
Teach the grain of sowing
Reach the sound to follow
((each is owned))

Oh no
Track Name: ENTROPY
See
The world
Longing for hunger
Feed
You('re) heard
But how your family needs you

I'll fight you for the grave
Come taste this wound of exile
I only wanted tosave
Mind from a waste of time

Turn away
They're feeding on your open flesh
Entropy
The respite I have found

I'll fight you for the grave
Come taste this wound of exile
I only wanted to save
Mind from a waste of time
