Track Name: Benign
Pulsing. Throbbing. Growing. Breathing on the face of this.

On the face of this, bending these thoughts to mean more than they should.
We blame you for infectious acts, the poisons.
Our hands tremble.
Caress the benign

More than a slight irritation but not such, not much of an episode to be concerned, afraid with.
Biding my time to welcome death and a breath underneath all this hurt.
You don’t mean a thing.
Track Name: A Radiant Bright Truth
You could have just spoken up that day.
No need to hide, I’d have helped you stay.
This time we needed to open our hearts.

This monster had control. You let it take my soul. Sutured lips are not the answer.

Please take in that you killed me but I’m still here.
I’m still here.

Radiant Bright Truth

I said those words just for you to ignore.
How much respect can I have anymore?
The more I say then the more you ignore.
This monster has conquered you to the core.
This time we needed to open our hearts.

This monster had control. You let it take my soul. Sutured lips are not the answer. Please take in that you killed me.
I’m still here.

Radiant Bright Truth

Your guilt has gotten you nowhere. You’ve been silent so long. I feel that you can’t care. Look at the sun then look within. [Radiant Bright Truth]

Relevant that you’ve missed all out on growing and learning to be my bright truth,
Ripping and pulling at my heart means that nothing can move you to be part of this. Of this.

Just come home. I won’t speak of your monster.
Let’s be.
Once more.
Track Name: Absentia
Don’t you fear the thought that the next time you see me, I won’t see you.
The next time you’re near could be the final.
I only barely understand why.
I love you.
I am you.

You act like your father. If it’s not you, you can’t care.
I am you. I saved you.
Yet you still disappear.
He left when we were young.

Inseparable. Only we had the power to disband as you’ve proven of late.

You had the power to destroy my world.
I hope yours is dark and vacant.

Never asking what went wrong.
Where’d you wander?

You disappeared as if you died.
It could have made more sense if you did.
At least a reason for you absence could be known.
Track Name: Careful Engagement
How about now you think like the rest of us that are to kind to be honest about all the things that could help your being.
Why must you be like this?

Exhausted from your sensitive needy ways. Christ’s Sake.
Man up or grow up.
You don’t need to be like this.

You make us insincere with the way that we say all the words
That we needed to say when your mind wandered astray.
How about now you think like the rest of us that are to kind to be honest about all the things that could help your being.

Such a careful engagement this is for the world.
To oh so carefully correct when you’re wrong at all.
Why must you be like this?
You make us insincere with the way that we say all the words
That we needed to say when your mind wandered astray.
How about now you think like the rest of us that are to kind to be honest about all the things that could help your being.

Such a careful engagement this is for the world.
To oh so carefully correct when you’re wrong at all.

Exhausted from your sensitive needy ways. Christ’s Sake.

Why must you be like this?
Track Name: Dream Of The Architect I
Dreaming of a new way.
Track Name: Dream Of The Architect II
I’m at war with what we’ve built.
I know we can do better than this.
Forged deeply in our minds is the belief that we can be happy with the walls we construct.

Focusing on the dream of the architect who can save us.
Focusing on the dream of the architect who can save us.

Who can blame us for focusing on believing that we can live this way.

He wants to build us a new world.
You’re not the only one who dreams he’ll take
This all down, this all down, this all down
We yearn for some meaning.

He wants to build us a new world.
You’re not the only one who dreams he’ll take
This all down, this all down, this all down
Yes we’re pleading.
Track Name: Echo Results
There was a time when things were real.
And then I dreamed we’d be together.
Brighter moments had their promises of what we had.

Pulsing. Throbbing. Growing. Breathing on the face of this.

Where the hell have you been?
Oh, you’re pacing cyclically through your head.
You know you can slow down and eventually stop.
It takes but a step out of the loop and onto new paths.

I know how it feels to be trapped in one’s head.
To be pulled and tortured by a repeating thought.
You don’t have the answers and you never will.
Just breath deep and walk away and elsewhere you’ll go.

You feed on and feed with your own hate.
They don’t understand because it’s not all that real.
Don’t doubt your power. Be who you wish you were.
For Christ’s sake speak to your mother. She’s been there too.

Blame us all if you want but it’s just one point of view.
You’re the only one keeping yourself on this looping path.
Blame us all if you want but it’s just one point of view.
You’re the only one keeping yourself on this looping path.

Don’t be afraid to tell someone to hold your hand on this path.
They’ll make you ashamed of your self-constructed prison.

I know how it feels to be trapped in one’s head.
To be pulled and tortured by a repeating thought.
You don’t have the answers and you never will.
Just breath deep and walk away and elsewhere you’ll go.
