Track Name: Wood For Boxes
A sentimental narrative has been placed within the walls
This false sense of harmony becomes the justifying cause
Appropriated totemic now a keepsake on a string
The space cleared of old growth means that the new world can begin

A passing burden you put into a box
And push it away
The loss, a token behind a simple lock
If only
Amassing fortune you build into a box
And push it along
The lost, a vision of what this all will cost
For our way

A preservation ritual easing fear of the unknown
The hole dug in effigy, at last home yet still alone
For all the bone and inscribed stone we reject what will remain
The circle is left unclosed, a figure in vain

For in our way
The burden of guilt will outweigh
Track Name: Sundowner
Out of the ground
And into the cold
I will follow you now
For a stage
Set within your thought
Illusion of an endless start
Where you'll go

Only fragments left, no part of you to hold

Out of the cold
And into the ground
I will follow them now
For a face
Set within your thought
Allusion to a remnant heart
Where you're found

The ache of never to
Remember
The space left heavier

You led to the river
Searching for
A place to cross over
Track Name: Colony Collapse
A writhing shape
In simple delegation
Poised to be betrayed

A foreseen act
Ignoring intervention
Faced with plans unmade

Our time is still
A delicate persuasion
Best to be allayed

Appointed hour
Arrives in exhortation
Helpless to persuade

For all the fruitfulness the seeds aren't falling
We passed implanting the need to grow
Consensus living in a higher calling
While panning those who plead to know

Lest to grow

The choir preaching that the sky is falling
And blaming those who need to know
Track Name: Will Erodes
As unease begins to tell on you
Her face so like the one before
Revealing breaths, they come in waves, wear through
The sole concern for what is yours

You hold the only lover you’ll ever know
Your will to grow, so hollow, will only show
You till her worth, her one, and only to send another
Unto the earth you’ll never know

A solemn vow to set my want apart
The lie alone, I lie in wait
I’ll never bend enough to mend this broken heart
The ghost beside me slips away

You hold the only lover you’ll ever know
Your will to grow, so hollow, will only show
You till her worth, her one, and only to send another
Unto the earth you’ll never know

As unease begins to tell on you
Your face so like the one before
You weigh your worth in others, to the loss of your lover
And to the earth you’ll never know
Track Name: Ever-present
Not more for your love, now
Nor for your causes
Will you earn this
Reward of a spirit
Removed from the losses

Hide my breath
Life as evidence of all that will be
I am death as I am alone
In folly

The last voice will echo
Hope of a return
Spoken earnest
Past, lost in the time for
Lessons to relearn

Hide my breath
Life as evidence of all that will be
You are death as you are alone
In folly

Weary and lean
From hunger easily appeased
Sleepless the gaze
Upon the distant hand that reaped
Watch as a dream
An empty vessel from the yield
Counting the days
Track Name: Cassandra
We are the chosen
The steward given to a land no hand will save
In the throes of
Expedition where we chose to set our grave

From all the fallout
To what we force in
I’ll never turn you off
You’ll be forgotten

A practiced mother
Never ridden of the need to bear a child
In a home with
Shackles clinging to a wall of lust and pride

From all the fallout
To what we force in
I’ll never turn you off
You’ll be forgotten

Lost to vanity
As madness renders our voices faint
Track Name: Best Intentions
All these masses
Atoned as the basket passes our hands
Endless classes
The bounds of communion remain on our land

Decomposing
The doctrine that tailored disparity
Yet as we rows of faithful keep our feet
The words we use lose their meaning

This is our hope, the ground on which we're graded
Our hearts still lag
And everyone unto their brother will be weighted
Our hearts still lag

Though years of earning pardon
The sermon incomplete
(A) Reviving denial
For all
