On Watch I 00:33
2.
Gray Havens 03:50
To live in a dying breed I see no future in me to burn out on my own design I feel the heat losing steam What looks like an auspicious thought fleeting image in the dark Burning trash as a pastime like a pill down the throat What's leaning to disingenuous A spoon-fed megaphone Like a pillar to the heavens We'll jam our way up A new face based in mass appeal Another brick in the wall while the metal heats and cracks We all provide to stay in line Watch your passion dissolve We all worry too much to see your parents lose out I'll make it easier soon we all provide stay in line
3.
Blocks 03:35 video
You are the few to survive If this disease eats us one mile per minute A cancerous lead / A life it precedes You are the few still alive You seem mislead / Left alone in bed A drugged up knock / A cluster of blocks When we wait for the caretaker I'll start to loosen my ends You are the few in my mind An amphetamine dream / A pastel scene You've lost the battle in your hands A mud-slinging fence / Twisting meds at the end
4.
We win one more pissing match And march onto the north Standing still in a sinking pool Suburban yellow is our truth Banged up and bent out Of shape and place Sleeping in a different house A suburban felon is our youth a new position inefficiently boxed in Cyclical living There's nothing like getting up before dawn to start wasting your life A lousy friend with crooked hands a work of love in progress moral compass like burnt food A work of love is finished
5.
In concrete terms I'll salvage every word Too scared to exit And step outside Regretful lights The talking queen Outside my silver screen Reflective eyes and scars, surprised Turn sunlight My violent years I'll make you disappear Tight fists and scared kids Keeping notes on all sides My violent years Holding back your tears The great divide In due time Fearful pride Neglectful eyes
6.
You think you’ll know The foul shape it turns When this sequence staggers And I wake up grown I can tell in my hands The skin is thickening through the drop spreads quicker these days not like it used to I’ve felt the shift Always so gently removed Granted taken For the simpler things I can tell in my face The hollows deepening still Elastic limbs abused If they told me that I would Then I will You can stay here suspended in the right thing I know what it’s for the words that I’ve been sounding out with feeling the ones that will deprave us when our blood replicates us

On Watch II 00:32

E.D. 01:08 video
If I chase this exploded drawing down the street If this circular song stays in place Moving up to sit still
9.
The Author 03:11
What looks like the other Let's say you find another A path of attraction and wonder A pool of attrition and blunder If our worlds die in place A simple lie, defaced The old world carves a name What feels like a hurdle A trail of letters find the author Fear's built up like a shelter A leaky rooftop, I'll reside under
10.
There's little pain Not all acute You stubbed your toe Through the hole in your shoe The weight hits hard Through fistful smiles You swim for hours And get real close A filterless cig A rubbing alcohol swig A newborn fib And a losers lisp Holy roller Don't lose your number Or you can't play my game We buckle and swing Oh virginia Sweet disappointment I hardly knew ya Relief rings true
11.
If I'm content with the bad world Then what's bad is good and I'm the fool keeping track of losing these days and keeping loose, he says Then you pick You pick me off like dead skin Failure's a word that I can "spell real good" When the word is spelled out in front of me A successful up climb to the cloud nine all the kids will say all the kids will say all the kids will say all the kids will stay on
12.
Schemes 04:43 video
Look at your schemed fiend A sketchy scene / your new dream In a limbo-zine A new age caller I.D. A freak's lean on an old means Fence-walk for bigger things Loud use of tent pitching A cooled off demon sings Proud use of old-school vulgarity Hidden in thoughtful seats A walled-up border collie Group trips, a subtle folly Look up an idol's dream Drenched in sunscreen / A sad scene Things that shouldn't be Cold sweat leader Spray painted scenester King of the bottom feeders Newborn anomalies A fixed up flag dream with tears stream A think tank with endless needs A tall order man Abusing our little world leads Fall back on smaller things Tuned in and turned off
13.
G's End 05:11
In the end What matters is if you're safe Gaslighting your way To keep the circle in play Did he treat you right Does it feel good Or Do you feel projected Like you've been told to All I've wanted to say Is I hope you find peace today Worried you're propped up on display Do you feel happy Do you feel misused I fear I’ll overstep my place in this game Do you still feel happy Is that word abused
