Track Name: Adam's Ravine
Stay home
because you don't want to say the wrong words
because the lights are too much and the music's too much
Stay home
because these sorts of social situations are too demanding
because failure is too easy
Stay Home
if that's what you need
and the walls are familiar and stay in the same place
because laughs and compliments among friends
never did much for you
so Stay at home
because you'll regret it later
and if you go out you'll regret that too
you can't win
so Stay home
where you can't win because you also can't fail.
Track Name: Pizza Twins
But gnar
What pizza through yonder window breaks
with crisp snow underfoot
Chinese kites in the sky like pepperoni
the other half of my soul is trapped beneath your crust

All we have is not all we are
Life's one big Pizza Party
So let's party hard and shred gnar

They say that pizza is the fastest way to a man's heart
and an empty box is the saddest sight a man'll ever see

All we have is not all we are
Life's one big Pizza Party
So let's party hard and shred gnar

Pizza!
Track Name: Dissonance & Illusion
For a while I thought I'd fallen asleep
suspending my disbelief to see your face just one more time

As Icarus I flew a little too close to the sun
maybe this time I won't spread my wax wings and fly

And we will move on
And we will move on
And we will stay alone
You should have stayed at home

All that we love is everything we exist for
Impact! Lands the rover on viridian plains
Everything we know is everything we know
Everything we know is everything
You trapped me in this facade
Or is it all real under the cover of night?
Weekends taste better alone
Track Name: I Once Knew a Rhinoceros! You Look Just Like Him!
Trying not to reason with something I cannot understand
Eating worthless matter and crushing into dust in God's hand
On event horizon and into the unknown I cannot stand
Rip apart reality down to singularity, was this planned?

The end of something beautiful signalled by abyss, my dear friend
Refracting light of reason, abraxas has no meaning this is the end
Track Name: Asterisk
I'm in and out of comas
spiral staircase stretching my gears
harpy lungs and radio static
litter, best friends

Icicles melting off your shoulder
for a garden of broken lexicon
all is a sound blueprint for
the new
the New Year

Abasia, the symbiotic ties to loneliness and its lonelier cousin
we were born into infrastructure
when we move we take our ideas with us
I climb no more staircases
only spirals
Was nothing real?
Track Name: 2.54-Centimeter-Worm
Nerves aquiver with upright intention
and short-cut nails tapping metronomically on your bedside
the softest afterglow
the softest morning light
the spirit drained leads us back to springtime
with open arms and upward eyes
but I am an inchworm, earthed in this soil
between us

And like butterflies, we are

As summer ends
we flutter through fields
of our hopes and our admirations
reminding me that I could never be enough
and when I'm with you I'm happy
but am I anyone at all
or just an asterisk in your blocked out memory?
at least I am an inchworm
safe in this soil

And like butterflies, we are
Track Name: I Really Wasn't Joking When I Told You to Take Your Feet Off the Dashboard
What a beautiful night to be led on
and what a beautiful night to be led off
I don't see you much around here anymore
maybe there's a reason

and when you're alone, all by yourself
do you think aloud or sit in silence?

Give me one good reason why
I should keep on trying
I've been living to look into your eyes
for a moment
to see myself reflecting back, smiling

If there's anything I have learned
it's if you run in circles your entire life
you're going to get dizzy over time
well I guess that's me

and when you're alone, all by yourself
do you think about anything at all?

Well I'd say goodnight to you, but you're not even listening
And if you can hear me, turn around and look me in the eye

Give me one good reason why
I should keep on trying
I've been living to look into your eyes
for a moment
to see myself reflecting back, smiling

You should have stayed home
