Track Name: Homes So Airtight
we've been cursed by animals
we've been sick from long ago
we are lost from twenty-one
they'll take us, they'll take us

where's my hide? where's my fire?
where's my hide? where's my fire?
where's my hide? where's my fire?

suffer losses far and wide
raze the trees and chloroplasts
we have homes so air-tight
they'll hate us, they'll hate us

where's my hide? where's my fire?
where's my hide? where's my fire?
where's my hide? where's my fire?
Track Name: Over the Line
you want it, alright
you're busted, alright
squeezing the last juice out of life
changing the tides

we want something else
we're changing ourselves
loosening all of our heart strings
changing our scenery
changing what’s in front of me

no, you don't want to regret your life
don't you know you can't live it twice?
no, you don't want to regret your life

why you sneaking around
waiting for someone, somewhere, something to go down?

you lead up, alright
said fuck it, alright
you’re ready to lose it once or twice
looking for a fight

we want them to try
to get loose and fly
scraping away the pains and stains
exposing the remains
of a life that’s passed them by

no, you don't want to regret your life
don't you know you can't live it twice?
no, you don't want to regret your life

why you sneaking around
waiting for someone, somewhere, something to go down?

come with me over the line
you have time to change your mind
Track Name: Wilten & Want
an autumn morn
i'm just a sad buck in the wood
tangled so deep
droplets from the watery sky leak
and bathe my coat of sheen
wilten and want for eve

how shall i go?
night's molten globe spills from the dark
i'm ripped and torn
i hide my lethargy from
the great, golden guide
friend and foe

i'll spell my tale
my spidery tale of running
of burdens so great
this bony crown's fate

see me running

a fierce display
i will not chase you anymore
insides are rot
your pointed digs swipe through my coat
so thin from battles
wilten and want

i'll spell you my tale
my spidery tale of moving on
i keep the pace
this thoroughbred races

tell my weary tale
this spidery tale
move you along
i'm bloody and worn
my hooves carry on

i run and i run
i run and i run
not to you

i run and i run
i run and i run
so through you

i run and i run
i run and i run
so through with you
