Track Name: a whiskey wanter
The day poured him out,
a dark and grey disease.
...and the skyline in his sight, mutilated
with the sky ghosts, whirling around him like...
all of his brokenness,
while his whiskey wanter screamed out
with such a mighty hankering.

Quite frankly:
I never liked him much
I never trusted him
he got on my nerves
he got what he deserved.

He would have liked to of:
ripped yer mind out.
burn yer church down
spread your secrets about
Thrown yer heart down.

As he crept back tio his
barstool cave, and entered his church
of broken promises
his eyes scanned the walls decorated
with all of his I wish I would haves, and all have his wish I had nots...
Until, the sound of victory came to him in a shot glass fury.

Until, the sound of victory came to him in a shot glass fury.
Track Name: she's breaking up...
Mouth breathing
... a prayer screamer
horned headed fist eyes
that shine a bruised light

with soul sparks
that crack the darkness
of her drunken head
a marijuananaut

with saw blade
tentacle arms
torn at the edges
her sound barrier
tearing through the atmosphere

she's breaking up...
Track Name: cell mates
There's cracks in his head,
there's cracks in his head again...
Where a blue grey lie,
where a blue grey lie pours in.

Flooding his cell
with her absence.

He wants out, but she's clawing to get back in.

His hands hold his heart,
as he feeds it to himself.
There's a hole in his chest,
a hole where his heart use to live...
