Track Name: Glass
You've got an urge you can't control, you need to feed it
The more you earn the less you care about
You need to earn, you need to own, you can't concede that
It's all a rouse to conceal a doubt

Raised a monument to a lack of thought, you're selling yourself far too short.

You've failed
We didn't ask for this

You don't need to know the things you can ignore
Cast a care for those that you don't adore
Raised a monument to the ignorant
Still selling yourself far too short
Track Name: Vector-Borne
Sow, you reap the benefits
Watch the needle pulling through
As I'm sewn to be a part of you
I'm thrown to be apart from you
And I'm lost in shade and blurry hue

I cast a stone among the ruins
Another home lost, another stone tossed
We sing a sigh and hide within it
The fittest words gone, the leanest line drawn

Laid bare, this is loveless
The sadness in your chest is clawing at a lost lust
On a cold night, with indecision primed
We find a way to mourn our loss

I cast a stone among the ruins
Another home lost, another stone tossed
We sing a sigh and hide within it
The fittest words gone, the leanest line drawn

I lent my arm as I watched you grow
You fed upon the barren flesh on show
The dependence dies as the punctures slow
And still you reap, but you never sow
Track Name: Waning Moon
Headlong, tumbling inwardly
This brittle shell won't break my fall
Regress like the waning moon
I cycle in and out of phase

Like living in a cast, I'm prone and frail
The matters of my plight are trite and pale
If I'm keeping counsel with my absences
Then the matters of the mind are bound by fate

I'm living with the dead
Track Name: Tracing Paper
Everyone's got an answer
To the problems they have no right to fix
Everyone's got a solution
To these chemicals that have no right to mix
Like tracing paper, you repeat the problem
Once you see these signs, do not trace the lines

Words said with thunder leave no room to wonder
With no measure, your meaning is lesser
With respect, no one's begging you to speak

No one's begging you to speak

Everyone's got an answer
To the problems they have no right to fix
Everyone's got a solution
To these chemicals that have no right to mix
Like tracing paper, you repeat the problem
Once you see these signs, do not trace the lines
Track Name: The Belly Of It All
I'm troubled by the evidence
This violence solves but who we are
A flirting blow has opened up old wounds
But silence shows us what we are
Stare into diminishing distance
Hope is held in feeble arms
And your unyielding will is weathered by the lone sound
Of a pregnant pause in broken words

I'm in the belly of it all

I'm locked out, I'm locked out
I'm weighed down by complicity
I'm locked out, you're locked out
My empty heart is my company

I'm troubled by the evidence
This violence solves but who we are
