TAIGA

do you wish
you could go
back to it
all

i wouldn’t
miss a moment
of it all

DANGEROUS DAYS

you’re going to witness all the days
you never stood to fight for your name
and i will be there, unspoken
curious
you never were the one for us
you never were the one for us
and then i just lay here open
on the floor
on the ground
on the stairs
on the way
on the floor
or the ground
on the stairs
on the way
and it’s dangerous to go and listen to what they say
and it’s dangerous to go and listen to what they say
it’s a dark dark day
it’s a dark dark day
in the way
the way you hold yourself straight
you never were innocent
and then i just lay here frozen
curious
you never were the one for us
you never were the one for us
and then i just lay here open
on the floor
on the ground
on the stairs
on the way
on the floor
on the stairs
and it’s dangerous to go and listen to what they say
and it’s dangerous to go and listen to what they say
on the ground
i’m on the way
it’s a dark dark day
it’s a dark dark day
when it comes are you gonna throw
and it’s dangerous to go and listen to what they say
and it’s dangerous to go and listen to what they say
it’s dangerous
it’s dangerous to know
your bite into the game
know what’s right for your name
lose your battle it’s all the same
it’s dangerous
it’s dangerous
it’s a dark dark day
it’s a dark dark day

HUNGER

oh i got the hunger
it moves but won’t lose it
i’m not getting younger
i use it abusively
i got the hunger
i got the hunger in my veins
i won’t surrender
until it takes me away
i got the hunger
i got the hunger in my veins
it’s taking me under
until it takes me away
it’s been five years waiting for the unfold
throat sore on swallowed gold
sick of being sick
tired of these wired ways
it won’t save me
it won’t replace me no
i got the hunger it will not let go
i got too many worlds to know  
i got the hunger
i got the hunger in my veins
i won’t surrender
until it takes me away
i got the hunger
i got the hunger in my veins
it’s taking me under
until it takes me away
it’s been too many times i’ve tested my cells
waiting on point nemo
absolute zero
mother lung give me a hard shake
self-abuse maze i gotta break
it won’t let up
it won’t save me no
i got the hunger it will not let go
i got too many words to sew
i got the hunger
i got the hunger in my veins
i won’t surrender
until it takes me away
i got the hunger
i got the hunger in my veins
it’s taking me under
until it takes me away
and it’s all that i want
all that i need
i got the hunger
i got the hunger in my veins
i won’t surrender
until it takes me away
i got the hunger
i got the hunger in my veins
it’s taking me under
until it takes me away

GO (BLANK SEA)

what does it give you when you’re awake
does it give better than it takes
does it know the truth in you
does it know the truth in you
i go downtown
where they don’t know my name
i go downtown
where they all look the same
who can afford an honest answer
with all these lies we’re living in
and who can give me what i’m after
in this cold saturation
but i’m not lost
i go downtown
where they don’t know my name
i go downtown
where they all look the same
and i said no one
no one can stop me now
and i said no one
can take this down
i go downtown
where they don’t know my name
i go downtown
where they all look the same
i go downtown
where they don’t know my name
i go downtown
where they all look the same

EGO

I used to think
humility was everything,
the only way through
to ourselves
I fought against the ego,
and i thought fear brought me closer
to the truth
I fought against the ego,
i knew it brought me closer
to losing 
from first step to last
i’m rising from the ashes
from first step to last
i’m tethered to you
I used to think
that i was bound to reverence
the only way through
to my health
I fed into the ego
I fought what brought me closer
to my youth
I fed into the ego
I knew it brought me closer
to hubris
from first step to last
i’m rising from the ashes
from first step to last
i’m tethered to you
from first step to last
i’m rising from the ashes 
from first step to last
i’m tethered to you

LAWLESS

sever the ties
before they weigh you down
cut your losses in the worst way
pinned to the eyes
a look of lossing  
you’ve got to adjust immediately
and this land is nobodies
when you fall apart 
i’ll be there
waiting to claim it up
in these lawless times
i’ve got nothing left of what’s mine
give it up for good
in these lawless times
i’ve got nothing left to hide
give it up for good
you either run or take it
and i know i won’t lose the will to make it out alive
remember those unbilled days when i bought all
and nobody could tell me i was wrong no
and in my own desire i’d be owed to no one other than myself
we gotta get used to it now 
and in those old days oh i get so lonely
and in those old days all i could fit could hold me  
but
this land is nobodies
when you fall apart
and i’ll be there
waiting to claim it up
in these lawless times
i’ve got nothing left of what’s mine
give it up for good

NAIL

how am i supposed to survive
if i don’t know what’s wrong and what’s right
how am i supposed to know freedom
if i don’t know i’m living inside
cause you’ve got the nail to my all
my only chance to know what is what
cause you’ve got the nail to my all
an object i can’t even control
set me free
pull the nail out with your teeth
the slave hits the cog
and every neck is turned to grey
the silence turns to thaw
and the words make sense in their own way
but tradition is a slave to it’s owner
and i won’t let nobody take it over
no i won’t let nobody take it over
and on my own life i won’t turn a shoulder
to the fissures that keep us divided
can’t hold on the quiet
can’t keep me away
set me free
pull the nail out with your teeth
set me free
don’t leave me wasted

LONG WAY DOWN

you were the one that would say
we were one in the same
but now it’s in you
it’s in you always 
and on the heels of the days
when all words were saved
but now it’s in you
it’s in you always
and on the face of it
it’s never forgetting
don’t follow it down
the clocks are indebted 
it’s long way down
they don’t need to let you know that
it’s a long way down
far from the cracks in the bay
down town the worries will make
but now it’s in you
it’s in you always
find all your reasons to stay
half time it slows to a quake
but now it’s on you
it’s on you always
and on the face of it
it’s never forgetting
don’t follow it down
the clocks are indebted 
it’s long way down
they don’t need to let you know that
it’s a long way down
they don’t need to let you know that
they don’t need to
(they don’t need to let you know)
it’s long way down
they don’t need to let you know that
it’s a long way down
they don’t need to let you know that

HOLLOW

under the tissue
you never knew it at all
in all of it’s versions
it rises and falls
it counts for all saying   
you wish you be weighing
but now it’s on your own
you never gonna sit right if you don’t
seconds roll off 
before you can grow up 
and when it closes down
it’s
hollow
minutes go by
before you close those eyes
and everyone breaks down
twice
it’s turning you hollow
you just gotta let it go
under it all fades away
under it all fades away
it’s a syndrome of never knowing what’s right
it’s a final drum to the end of the page
when the forms pack the square
and the fog hits the air
it’s never the same 
it’s turning you hollow
you just gotta let it go

DUST

give me an open game
don’t let it get too far away
this world is not to blame
you’ve got to protect your name
when everything goes down
all the dust will settle in this new world now
we can make it our own
together
give me a second chance
don’t let it fade so fast
this life isn’t made to last
you’ve got to run while you can
when everything goes down
all the dust will settle in this new world now
we can make it our own
together

IT'S NOT OVER

you want to forget
all the nights and days out on the hunt
you want to forget
but you can no longer push it all
away now
away now
and it hits you for the first time
away now
away now
and it won’t become the last
it’s not over tonight
it’s not over tonight
it goes away now
away now
but it’s not over tonight
you fall on your back and sink
as it locks you into place
and you won’t be on the last call
cause you know that now it’s hit
away now
away now
and it goes into your chest
away now
away now
and you can’t just tell the rest
it’s not over tonight
it’s not over tonight
it goes away now
away now
but it’s not over tonight
it’s not over
it’s not over
it’s not over
