The Tying Of Me Up With String There are too many voices inside my head to pick one out and tell him to sing They are blatant and believable but never to an end do they bring to the tying of my up with string Make me a merry marionette Dry your eyes, you say I will be your blanket Tied behind my mind are my hands Tried to find a new word for hope, found thankless You'll find it unwinds in time So warm, so safe inside the comfort I have found I can't imagine life when left out in the cold Why fight? It's so right, when in the night a fire's light lies next to me and warms me to the bone Please I cry, a break for a day I pray you A theme in the dark, who are you talking to? The time unwinds, along with cloth bound round now, I struggle Quite unkind, whispered into unhearing ears I've not been me for years divided by the sum of my fears Well-kept secrets, keepsake regrets had their hearts set on the tying of my up with string Build me, thrill me pick me up and then drop me I don't care to climb so I'm down right now Bill me, kill me ask me if I know what to do I don't care I'll save my soul somehow I don't care I'll save my soul somehow *&^*&^*&^*&^*&^*&^*&^*&^*&^ or I will bear it somehow and bow down right now to the tying of my up with string and as I'm brought by my new tether strings and things pull me light as a feather I'm free decisions now seem like a bother I think I walk a little taller with this collar these strings

Sweet Constellation I hover above and with a push and a shove, my hands make me run to love I sit on a bench and in the gloom and the stench, my mind finds a new way to rhyme Sweet constellation, inspiration Why did I let you leave my love? How do I make you stay these days? Sweet constellation, inspiration I need consultation, consolation Sweet isolation, sweet separation Another beautiful beast provides a poisonous feast The well's long been dry see the thirst in my eyes Sick tease rotation, my imagination You leave me all alone to beat these keys and moan Make me your own Take me home Make me whole Thinking the wrong way it makes for a bad day, Music, I don't want to play, I want it to play me Sweet constellation, inspiration Sweet confirmation in sweet sensation Looking back now I don't think I've ever seen it better than this I don't miss one bit the suffocation kiss, I'm just glad I could fix it with heartstrings clipped and a mind unzipped

Ticking time and the road Ticking time and road back to a better mind running blind, unknown but on a better line Catching a kit line, a new vice to pass the time had I known how fast it flies, I'd have never tried It's the only road you look at the tracks that you can't hide City streets and the stale scent of someone's cigarette nighttime finds me friendly, singing more than what the words meant Skipping the trip, coming down into the world I rent had I wandered longer, homeward I may not have went Spirit my body home, it slows my soul's ascent Ticking time and the road back to a better mind city streets and the stale scent of someone's cigarette A mixed-up man's shape and a voice that doesn't match his face illuminated under a dark stage waits a better place I wonder if I've wandered worlds under another face Ticking time and the road back to a better mind city streets and the stale scent of someone's cigarette I wonder if I've wandered worlds under another face

World Eater 04:27
World Eater I'd been crazy, quiet, kept it in for far too long please heed this song I'd been living under clouds of guilt and sin until a kick in the shins allowed me spin I'd been waiting for a day when I could say look what's come my way well look what's come my way affording constant sleep discordant end will surely be leaving restless reasons be withered away the hope in me I got a lot of little lies in me my life was wrong anyone who knew me could surely see the worst of the world had realized in me and I was gone till I thought better, my soul to feed color quickly returned to me and into the beast I sang a silent scream world eater before the demon is fully grown please keep the seeds that feed her you'll wander alone along lots of streets and meet her fear's the name that she may not prefer once I thought that I had reached an end a notion came, afraid to begin? which is worse I hope I'll never know where can you go with no more road? I gave up everything for a comfort now and a fear to drown I left me dreams behind to die and in the end, as well did I picked up and hung by my feet blood rushed down down into my head, into where I need soul, heart, and brain were all where I bleed and I was found watched toxic thoughts slowly fall from me come back into being what made me me yell at your lesser possessor and she will flee world eater before the demon is fully grown please keep the seeds that feed her you'll wander alone along lots of streets and meet her fear's the name that she may not prefer

One Sigh 02:46
One Sigh Once I watched you watch me with intent I caught you stacking facts inside your head We never had to hunt for the hunger for me Now look at us, wow Look at us now Look at us now. Some nights I'm just not quite ready to write I haven't learned to leave the herd and find the light Confusion's caught me by the heal And pulled me back to eternal wheel Spun around now Blood's flowing down Blinked or blacking out I came to life at some point – I was me And someday I will cease to be But in between I've seen a curiosity, a curiosity! Life flows yes, no, maybe so, I don't know I go yes, no, maybe so, I don't know I heard you caught the curse took a turn for the worse I'd love to help you but I'm driving my own hearse We woke up once a week to check for changes and go back to sleep Some days I'm too aware no longer scared to care Seems like this song should end with aah ------ And then again the cycle ends Only to begin again ??

Began Again 02:11
Began Again In the end, I found I was made of a million preconceived notions In the end, I allowed I had layed on the bottom of a million oceans As it is, I'm bound by time and space behind a face fires a new emotion In the end, I found I was made of a million preconceived notions I began again all that I could do I began again if only you knew that you could too When every way but mine was wrong I took the book and I sang the song You wanna feel surreal as me? then take a look into the eyes of the ones you're judging We'll begin again nowhere else to go We'll begin again if only we could know how our minds will grow

Ladders 01:31
Ladders I'm so tired and I'm a mess Lying in my mind won't count for rest Trying to be kind but I still don't feel blessed When I lost control of my face I think I lost the rest I grabbed a hold on a ladder of sand and when you threw me into the sun you entombed me in glass Life's moving fast, I'm losing touch but I've made as much as anyone climbing ladders with the heat of the sun on my face Burning skin smell puts me in my place Now here's how I see you when you are blue Life's like an orange picked new for you You're trying to find a rhyme you're wasting your time Just eat the damn orange before the tree's died But if you climb the tree where can you go, what do you see? Little you know, under your feet is lying the seed you seek I've broken free, I fall onto you now we've found the ground and the sound of an orange falling to your hand Time is heat here, it makes grass on to land

16,000 02:38
16,000 Tomorrow I'm going to a tattoo parlor on the back of my hand I will write one number 16,000 children dead every day from the choice I've made no longer I can justify building a wall to stay high and dry I was chugging along from day to day when I felt ashamed I looked the other way I felt a tugging at my base saying no time to waste and before too long the wall gave way The blood rushed back into my head and when I hit the ground I knew it was the same that flows from my brother and into the grave and when I turned my head I felt to blame Tomorrow I'll begin to live like I should I'll share a little land and garden my own food I'll share the joy of a world's weight lifted free with anyone done fueling a pain machine Tomorrow I swear I'll start anew I believe I've heard the same from you because tomorrow is the day that never comes if the change will be today the change must come and if the days must go by I know you know how fast they fly and if you are too tired to try try looking into their eyes

Old Friend 03:22
Old Friend You have no love to lend, when a friend’s on the mend you send them attention The past year’s been weird, don’t realize my fears please ease my ascension Come on inside, don’t be afraid to try to remember the good times We have to face our fears and come to terms with the years when we were blind Now we see Take me back, sweet memories, to a time a time when life and light seemed to rhyme inside my mind Show me what I’ve done to lose my friend make me understand, pass strands of past lands across my hands Pick me up and send me out again out into a world I know no better than him Don’t let it end like this I simply must insist we try again, old friend I’m tired of looking behind, tires my spine and eyes I wanna look ahead Before we’re dead
