Track Name: Cat Or Wall
Failing organ
Close and open
Leaking motion
Drain the eyes of color
Gold to suck and cipher
Fill with black mold
Old news - Old truth
Rearrangement altered
through alchemy
Hibernating frozen
toad under the ocean
Prime material food
Growing into black roots
Track Name: Scratch Itch With Fire
Choking - with broken teeth -
Lacking - premonition
Ghost in the - gutter
Spirit - trashed
Biting the new tongue
Bleeding the flavor
The future like sirens
I hear a loud ringing
Track Name: Sodium
Bled dry of words
Punctured through the abdomen
Losing color
The salt of your spirit
Invoking the ghost of the forest
To approach your technology
Gravity is bewildered by
The concept of a straight line
Track Name: New Machines
One step ahead
of nature
Birth left in the dust
Is showing rust
Within the pool of cellular fuss
Digital infants bring infinite distance
Track Name: Ageist Waves
History stretches its fingers
Sticky feelers
What gathers speed
Travels freely
West on 64
Lies a worm hole
The portal will swallow you whole
The villain is a syndrome
A homegrown state of apathy and stagnancy
What a liquid soul
The hero never showed
Time is - A solid coil - It vibrates
Track Name: Tectonic Breath
Force fed the mosquitoes
Seismic accounts bring the
Balance back to zero
Back to zero
A dirty vein
Slithers its way
Down the center
Through the middle
Breathe in
We feed on the life
We breathe in the depth
Feed on the life
Breathe in the depth
Track Name: I Am Gust
Through out the years
you've gathered dust
Passing the chance
to sweep it up
The quicksand
clogged his arteries
What covered his skin?
What fed his eyes?
Every room has stayed the same
You create a tainted brain
Fragmented pieces of your mind float
Track Name: Solstice
Seeds are
sown in the brain waves
growing the new strain
History is bleeding over
The spine
Is mine
Ink exploiting
No exploring
Brain stems planted in
Dead infertile dirt
Track Name: Stretch Marks
I would lose my
Old human form
Throughout time
Dirt will learn
Reaching for the future
Fingers broken
This is not genetic
