Track Name: Paths
Void of soul and blind of the whole picture. Lines crossing lines. Tangled twine. Doomed in time. Broken spirits. Starving minds. And I keep giving in to this urge to give in to their words, and culture! Ripped up the notes, and the plans, and the lists just to see where my own improvisations would carry me. That's when i found that I could navigate my life through pain and strife. Your path- infinite directions. Infinite paths to choose from. No right ways or wrong ways. The days seem to create more weight and meaning in my life. Go where your intuition knows, and grow as you fight your way through shit, and carry the weight of bad love, the cultural pull and shove, the last breath of this dying dove. Darkness closing in. Consciousness wearing thin. And it begins our plunge into the void within our broken spirits, fractured minds. And I keep catching myself losing track of myself. Ripped up the notes, and the plans, and the lists just to see where my own improvisations would carry me. That's when I found that I could navigate my life through pain and strife. Your path- infinite directions. Infinite paths to chose from. No right ways or wrong ways. The days seem to create more weight and meaning in my life. Go where your intuition knows and grow as you fight your way though shit, and carry the weight of bad love, the cultural pull and shove, the last breath of this dying dove. I asked what do I do. And I told you it's your choice. But I misunderstood you, and took it for abandonment. Yeah, I can see how you could take it that way, cause all of us keep seeking validation.
Track Name: Don't Freak Out
I don't want to sound like a fatalist but modern culture must persist until it turns to shit. As tragic as it is don't freak out, this is just how nature works. END-Holocene now! Is it fate or just a chance chain of events? This don't make sense! I'll just spend my life in the present moments; take this for what it is. Don't freak out. This is just how extinctions work. End-Holocene now! There's no place to go. Where can we go?
Track Name: Bridge Burners
I'm freaking out about figuring out these issues of my heart. I'll push 'em away with nothing to say as my friendships quickly fall apart. This isn't what I bargained for. A social sadist causing more harm to myself. I'm a masochist burning bridges. I'm losing touch and looking for crutches anywhere I can. If i could see outside myself maybe I'd truly understand the social games I’m playing from the perspective of the ones I've cheated out of meaningful experiences - still burning bridges. And we could have been best friends, but this never seems to end- these social games we keep playing. We're never done playing.
Track Name: Wave Of My Own
Talked to fish in a tank today. Told him I was feeling exactly the same way. I'm stuck in a tank. Little Fishies- they all struggle to break free of the glass that confines them. Met a bird with clipped wings. She didn't know I'd been suffering similar feelings. I got clipped wings. Little birdie- can't fly away, only to become a vain symbol. I gathered the courage to take my pains and fears head on. The fight was long and deeper scars were left on. Someday I'll weaken this glass tank enough to break it. I'll emerge into the world on a wave of my own. Waves.
Track Name: Domesticate Me
I never cared too much about connecting with the other living things around me. Never could see, never could look at a flower and fully behold an autonomous, thriving, unique being, cause I’m not seeing any meaning- nothing unique. Afraid to feel or think, just domesticate and sink deeper into this hole I’ve dug and refuse to climb out of. I always felt more safe in the city. To tell you the truth Nature really scares me. I need structure. I need concrete. I need. Mother Culture, domesticate me, cause I’m not seeing where this is leading- nothing concrete. Afraid to feel or think, just domesticate and sink deeper into this hole I’ve dug and refuse to climb out of.
Track Name: The Flies
Why won't they let us see their faces when they died? What was in their eyes? What were they trying to hide? Behind every veil is a secret and a lie. We were told they were flies. You can't run away- you're paralyzed in your place. I didn't grow today- I just stayed the same. The Flies are in our eyes. Our eyes are flies.
