Track Name: Dark Dark Energy
a new perverse thought / a new power play
the same old habits done in a different way
I love my best friends or so I say
I've been exiled from my home city
I'll own you all soon under a different name
I love my enemies or so I say

the same dark thoughts provide the dark energy
the same blind eyes give it the light of day

a new mechanic using your old ways
still stays broken / still charged the same
I love the cheated until today
a new interest / several surroundings
kept a lost cause / left silent today
I still feel cheated / or so I say

with all my trust in the world
Track Name: Bruce Lee
If you lay a hand on her
I will end you
in the sewers

They use to use drugs too
supply and demand as the fear ensues
I’ll find out when your kid’s heart…

I will kill you
if i have to

They use to use drugs too
supply and demand as the fear ensues
I’ll find out when your kid’s heart stops to beat
Track Name: Nice But Not Kind
I'll never fall asleep
what's here is ours for keeps
with you I'll never know
how much my fear can grow

our eyes will turn and repeat
my hands will fill the creek
and you're here alone

I'll never fall asleep
and nothing's ever cheap
outfitted for my needs
I'll never turn my cheek

our eyes are joy and peace
my mind is full of deceit
and you'll find me
Track Name: Clint Eastwood
I'll stay at your feet / i'll be the dog in heat
i prefer to yearn than to take action with you
close leash / the hound in place
irrationally I'll quiver and shake
got these momentary aches and pains

and I'll be here around
and I'll be on the ground

when the car knocked the wind out of you
and almost threw you into a tomb
actively with a demise
the dog doesn't want the owner to die

and i'll wait around
and I'll wait on the ground

in tune for good
Track Name: Portals To Hell
you know how one can hurt
when you can't have the one you want
like I child in a checkout line
like my fear of losing my mind

the pursuit is a dead art
come off as false and pull back my thoughts
your disinterest stays cruel
while I aim to keep my cool

and then you'll never know it too
what i could do for you
I'll keep the weak at bay
keep on digging til it breaks
I'll keep the words you say
I'll keep you in mind today

free space for all my trash
far from cheap it'll never last
a square mile vagabond
disheveled with time and left in the sun

given up on the dead art
dried up my idea of fun
your disinterest stays true
while i lay here far from you

I'll keep the day
Track Name: Treasure Pains
my value has deepened
with all this free time
and trimmed at the sides
I beat my head into the desk
and start over
with triumph and conviction
and all these new traits
I guess I've fallen through

I'm a slob
a secret slob at heart
I've got a lot of it
hidden in plain view
the treasure pains hold on true

loud yelling in the car
calling as you see it
and you / moving east
towards a new end
hiding in the coup
tall in plain view
the scars sowed on new
and soon you'll know that

I'm a dog
a modern dog at fault
I've lost all of it
pulled apart to start
the treasure pains are no longer new

you'll never be the art I'll see
you'll never be the terms we breed
