you could think a little more; maybe drink a little less when a knock on your door doesn't make you feel restless it's a matter of time, not a matter of taste until you're holding the only thing left that you didn't erase hold on tight; hold on wild it's a game that we play with each piece we align in consequent disarray when they inevitably collide it's a reason that rhymes; a profound twist of fate another chorus to sing in the night and keep that darkness at bay hold on tight hold on wild hold on tight hold on while you can you're fed, but you bit the hand you walk, but can you still stand or was it all part of your plan?
Garbage Can 03:41
you are an iceberg in my veins a picture in the frame you are what winter pulled away a view of the escape a delicate glance from a worried eye a mirror that doubles as a disguise floor that moves when i'm standing still a tight rope walk on a windowsill you are the sun falling from the sky a perilous trip through the needle's eye you are a shovel that's digging graves a grain of sand in a tidal wave batted lashes; the devil's kiss a semi-informed, fabricated bliss tethered, handcuffed and left to die always interested; always shy marching in and out of time we are one step out of line and paying penance for our crimes guarding the vault of the medicine when no one has a prescription left alone to his own demise is better than left to his own devices cannot control what we do not create it's better to absorb than to dissipate can't have enough yet can't let go this garbage can has become our home talking through tin cans on a string crossing the ocean with broken wings to learn the truth of vanishing
Quetzalcoatl 04:39
it's in the hair of the dog that bit me blood on the quill of the porcupine a wrecking ball to the cheap construction like making paper dolls in the rain every time anyone gets closer it starts to feel like a masquerade i advise you to keep pretending so you can join the parade quetzalcoatl in his dark sunglasses selling drugs to the kids by the riverside when they were questioned of their supplier they said he flew but his tail rattled on the ground every time anyone comes over i'm getting too high to sleep at night fight or flight; there's a hole that must be dug while i am living inside
Pete's Song 03:39
the truth comes out when you clip your broken wings and i can hear you sighing in the wind nest your eggs; keep them safe and warm so they can fly higher than you ever did commonly; calmly in the breeze i can hear you singing from far away though i've never heard any of those words i will ask you what they mean another day stay in the air so i can see you peaceful dreams never fill my sleep but i have never had a nightmare though i know the first that i will have will be about you falling from the sky
