Track Name: The Passing

Track Name: A Worn Ballad
Instrumental Track
Track Name: Live Onto Life
Live Onto Life

As true as flesh and the guided new
My hands are holding onto life
And so the story goes that we all know
about this mystery of white
Hold cold hands in conversation
proving that something is not right,
yet looking back and never knowing
about this mystery of Why
Track Name: Wood
Instrumental Track
Track Name: Is Sky
Is Sky
Be on advise that all this goodness,
That all this truthfulness is sky.
And be on advise that all of this generous mess,
That all this usefulness is mine.
Track Name: Concrete
Concrete
Tons of microchip heap
Waste making way for strands
Bulking thinking mounds of used integrity
I’m tangled in this mess of sound
A spider dumping off some streams
I’m a slave to this electrified place
Track Name: Telemetry
Instrumental
Track Name: Guns That Smoke
Guns That Smoke

So leave me here tonight with this cold and lonesome thought
The frozen lay dead on the grass
waiting for past glories to come back again,
Yet the cold rails crying won’t forget these days
and the comedy that went along with it will die away

So leave all the guns that smoke
and the frigid fingers that are prone to wait
for a day when they are not broken

The dead lay on plastic sheets
Rotting there like apples off of trees

…and these gray times will only measure
(but it doesn’t matter anyway)
