Nameless 03:08
Fitting the locks on another story's throat. I cut the lines that Hades spoke. Sickly circles curve out my mind and I'm falling out of Time. So bend the lies of logic humming, humming deep beneath this running, this pacing out of simple wanting back in the restless urge born of purposeless gain. Remember when you knew your name. Forget the lies recall the "once upon a time"s that sparked flickers in your mind, that built this dream's flame. Sitting perfect in this Lovecraftian horror. I wanted to slip through the game that we faltered. Play a maze out of make believe beneath the strain of this daily plane of common fears and wishing that we weren't here.
Absence 03:32
I don't want to go, I don't want to leave. But I don't want to stay here in the middle of the same old thing. Can you tell me what I'm looking for? No, of course you can't. Why do I ask for someone to read my mind, my heart time and time again? So what is this story? Another absentminded fool's longing? In the middle of a season in that time between time itself. And that's the problem with living a routine so temporary. Every time it changes, you're tricked into an endless inquiry. And forget the static sanctuary where the things that matter remain concrete.
Doppleganger 04:01
I think I've looking for what home means anymore. And I think I've been running, running from you though I don't want to. Look how foolish this is to hold to such clear contradictions, running these parallels of existence. I think I've been waiting for someone to turn on the lights and quit this fading, for someone to bring back my sight and burn the lies off. Doff a cap to foolish questions and fool's errand, leave them biting dust and remembrance. Sink your teeth into this heavy echo the back of dreaming when will you answer me When will I answer myself So here I keep tearing through this faulted castle of follies. Lingering for something that will undo this anomaly of self-silencing arguments writ by a fool's mouth trying to forget. "How can you tear your own soul so willingly?" says the doppelganger in the looking-glass above the sink. So cut your teeth into this heavy echo the back of dreaming. when will you answer me When will I answer myself
21 Years 03:08
Bit by the wind and kicking out the back window A reckless hero running rebel trails Up back alleys and urban woods Starting fires in the middle of ramen shop blues Heartshot riots in between all these stories Took 21 years to build these dreams Growing slow between my ears Pushing me to flee the scene And follow this homegrown epic Chasing faith and open roads, wordless connections What is life but another narrative Took to the streets following this night parade This calvacade of scripted fables and forgotten change Looking for the concrete soul to make the city's bones our own Building amplitude in telephone wires Peeling the mood off city spires

When not jamming sad songs with Trash Heap or writing humorously angsty mini-comics, can be found getting lost in Wikipedia tangents, aspiring to be a space pirate, and eating way too many jelly candies.
