Track Name: To Know Everything Is
She speaks to you in a language you don't understand
You close your eyes, hear the meaning in these words
There's a terrible weight that bears down on this town
brought down upon by the misguided fortitude of man

You look up
she's gone away
You'll return to this place
to sit & wait

A man collapsed on the sidewalk heated by the sun
The streetlights reach for him, to hold him down
As the powerline cocoons him, they lick their lips
He falls now through this winding tar esophagus

It's quiet now
for the time of day
Her presence shadows you
She feels the same
Track Name: La máquina de escribir de J.A. Mella
Temporal girl
where have you gone?
Traveled the world
You're never lost
You search for signs
of where she's gone
In dreams she says
"this is all you've got"

A vagrant says
"You look tired"
You're chasing
running down yourself

Her light has dulled
Connection lost
You still call out
The echo's gone
Refracted light
Computer screen
thrown out the window
Justified means

& they dance
You watch at night
Like serpents
they intertwine
Track Name: Vivez sans temps mort!
Onward to ennui
Obstinately clutch
last shards of moments
beautiful & lost
Softened & hairless
thick layered plastics
Fell the last tree
Doesn't make a sound

Witness spectacle retract
Object, materials worthless
Earn this consumer rating
Reform, want nothing just life

Awkward bodies
conform to one shape
Sleep with blue glow
buzzing symphony
Deafened nature
drowned out the gentle breeze
Biding their time
til mankind subsides

Subjects disconnect your time
Branded magnetic purchase
Reject nostalgic present
Reform, want nothing just life
Track Name: Ungdomshuset
Amber's dying as you watch her fade to dust
like a cigarette borrowed from a forgotten stranger
Leaves a trail of spoilt eggs in the yellowed grass
Broiled in desert heat, medium well & sunny side up

She'd walk right past men chained to automobiles
lay on the concrete & let them crawl past
Cogs push papers into slots that lead nowhere
Machine teaches want for worthless distraction

If all the people vanished in one night
production
would forge ahead
Embattled gears push themselves on & on
Abstraction
of modern life
Possession
No future plans
Track Name: Everyone Gets A Nickname
Innocence
on videotape
Doesn't matter if
it's night or day
Now you can see where
he tore her pants off each night

Above the bed is hanging
a portrait of her baby
Blank canvas sits & waiting
until it means something

All of this
is too much to take
You're not missed
She just left your wake
& no one could seem
to get you to close your eyes
Track Name: Ahimsa
You set yourself up for disappointment
Slowed them down, but they get back up
The living dead of the working class
dust themselves off & go back to work
Married to their unpaid debt & rising costs
They just keep on charging
They just keep on charging

Illusion of time pulls you along
Plant memories, forgotten songs
& battle cries; the written word has died
It's been replaced by bright neon signs
The well's gone dry, the pain can't subside
They want to medicate you
They want to medicate you

She was right about the wait
You watched this town die & you were saved
by the trees that spoke for her
They all wore her face
Told you, "you have to go before it's too late"
"Don't ever settle down here"
"Don't ever settle down here"

Her branches carry you out
Follow dead stars to where she'll be
in the black burnt earth
beyond the sea
They all wore her face
Told you, "you have to go before it's too late"
"Don't ever settle down here"
"Don't ever settle down"
Track Name: To Know Everything Is (Slow Version)
She speaks to you in a language you don't understand
You close your eyes, hear the meaning in these words
There's a terrible weight that bears down on this town
brought down upon by the misguided fortitude of man
You look up
she's gone away
You'll return to this place
to sit & wait
A man collapsed on the sidewalk heated by the sun
The streetlights reach for him, to hold him down
As the powerline cocoons him, they lick their lips
He falls now through this winding tar esophagus
It's quiet now
for the time of day
Her presence shadows you
She feels the same
