Track Name: Everything They Know
We are holier than you think.
With perfect eyes and perfect teeth.
A ventriloquist in the sky
pulls his strings
with a hand-

A hand to orchestrate
everything they know.
From all the things
that they see on T.V sets
to fight fire with the intention
of saving everyone.

We are the things that they think
we should be,
forging lies into everything.
And all the words
from the books that they read
are never really accurate.

A hand to orchestrate
everything they know.
From all the things
that they see on T.V sets
to fight fire with the intention
of saving everyone.
Track Name: Aneuryst, I Sit On The Sun
Hey everyone listen up
A pious man is speaking out.
But as he gathered for the feast,
the ruachs blew from the east.

While confronted by a weapon of faith
He spoke: "Naked I came, naked I'll return
to the womb so we can blot out the sun-

I'll never fathom the random
I suppose you always knew
Because from the way it looks
I will never be saved
from the things that we were all
conditioned to believe.

The sun rises to great us again.
Despite the words I've said to you.
If all we are is what we've lost,
this must be hell on earth.

While confronted by a weapon of faith
Naked I came, naked I will return
in spite of the things we learn
when we're young.

I'll never fathom the random
I suppose you always knew
Because from the way it looks
I will never be saved
From the things that we were all
conditioned to believe."
Track Name: A Talk With Kings
"Please tell me that this
will be over soon.
Our hand like withering blisters move
the intentions that they have."

The emperor awaits
Menagerie engaged
They'll torture the victims
and feast at their name.

One by one
they will pull
the skin back.

If idlers fall into the bitumen
Infants will stir their skin.
Lot gave virgin-queens
to the colony Zoar.
Dominion awaits!

And if she looks back
to see what I have done
she will turn to salt.
Symposium macrophage
where voracity is replaced
Villain nuisances
pray to defame-

Sodomites will sing
as they pull
the skin back.

When idlers fall into the bitumen
Infants will stir the skin.
Lot gave virgin-queens
to the colony Zoar.
Dominion awaits!
Track Name: In The Playground Of Our Forgetfulness
Forget everything that I've said
words can mean what they want.
While looking back at all of the wrong
and all of the right, the wrong
out-weighs itself by all accounts.
But why?

The problem is
the shift from everything
we know that's true.

These are the last of the remaining words
that I have to say to you.

We are nothing more
and we are nothing less.
The exchanging of tongues
can mean anything to anyone.
It's only awkward if we choose
to make it out to be that way.

Relax, the past is history
so let's choose to make
this feel good.

These are the last of the remaining words
These are the last of the remaining words
That I have to say to you

Oh why?
Oh why?
Oh why?
Track Name: Witnesses
After the arrival he came to us
to speak in pretense.
True to his word he appeared to help
revise a new life, free of limitations
so that we can witness peace.
With open arms we welcomed him
in-spite of doubt.
We never knew who he was
because he never explained.

I hope this is what they wanted.

We will witness
the rise and fall
In a vacuum
of submission.

After the arrival they came to us
to speak their prefix.
True to their word they appeared to help
revise a new life.
We'll never know who they were
because they never explained.
They said to us in lyrical tongues:
"I never knew you. I don't know
where else to start. We've never
seen anything like this before."

We will witness
the rise and fall
In a vacuum
of submission.
Track Name: The Last Oneironaught
Let this be known!
We'll stand our ground
no matter which trails
you turn to.
Oh, would you spare
the Phrygians from
the heathens that gather
at the pulpit?

To whom do I owe my pardon?
To whom am I speaking with?
Oh, mustn't you come down
from that throne
to barter with souls
that left you?

"In lyrical tongues
He'll hiss and chant and
grind his teeth
because there's no way
he'll ever make it back inside."

Wake me up! Because we are
really just asleep and none of this
ever really happened.

Well it seemed like we had a purpose
but from where I stand, it's a crisis.

All of the things
that we thought we knew
about are false.
We'll never know who they were
until we're all wronged again.

To whom do I owe my pardon?
Who am I speaking with?
Mustn't you come
down from that throne
to barter with souls
that left you?

"In lyrical tongues
He'll hiss and chant and
grind his teeth
because there's no way
he'll ever make it back inside."

Wake me up! Because we are
really just asleep and none of this
ever really happened.

Wake me up!
Wake me up!
