Track Name: Phantom Patterns Arson
Sing for the enemy dollar
Sing your ego, run in place
(Black eyes. Black eyes!)
Pray for the incidental
Insist that someone else decide
(Black eyes. Black eyes!)
Break the rhythm of the loyal
Breathe the rhythm of the devil
(Sound off, sound on. Sound off, sound on.)

Underline
The whole thing twice
Underline
I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid

Phantom patterns? It's arson
Educated guess? It's medicine
(Feathers in your cap.)
Sing the accidental humor
Sing your ego, run in place
(Feathers in your cap.)
Believe in noble numbers
Believe in only disregard
(Sound off, sound on. Sound off, sound on.)

Underline
The whole thing twice
Underline
I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid

Everybody shares each dollar
Everybody keeps their own promises
Everybody pulls the trigger
Everybody keeps their own promises

Underline
The whole thing twice
Underline
I'm not afraid
I'm not afraid
Track Name: A Complete Divorce.
drowned in the barrel of
the fall of
your history.

remind yourself about the
lawless ways you sold yourself.

a heads up while the heads were down
predicted we would wake up for one last time.

and sometime in july it was
forgotten within earshot.

well doesn't that look very much,
exactly like a replacement,
or the ruin of past life?

no! this is the life of the same,
death of the nature divided.
this is the birth of your name.

drowned in the barrel of
the fall of
your history.

did you see it
coming or going?
Track Name: What Bugs Eat
general relation
painted it all red,
and off the charts
and onto the graphs.

took up no space, only time.
(linear and general.)

this is you!
this is what you look like!
this is you,
a frame of reference in elliptic orbit.

well, in the interest of
those deserters to
where the helixed shores
house all the unknown--

there never is a fine line.
(these deserters to the shores.)

ghosts of those i held near,
all but shadows silent.
ghosts of those i held dear,
all but print and screen starred.
never ever to be looked upon again.
ghosts of those i held near,
all but essence easter.
ghosts of those i held dear,
all but spilled ink over,
well they have a few suggestions...

why don't you take it back
as it breaks your bones,
and roll it all out
for everyone to see,

and see who takes it as a sign.
(so why don't you take it back?)

this is you!
this is what you look like!
this is you,
a frame of reference in elliptic orbit.

as intuitive as you will ever get,
you're practically fool proof.
as intuitive as you will ever be,
you're virtually virtual.
and yet so
yet so far
so far out
far out of
out of sight.
Track Name: When You Had a Jaw
When you had a jaw
You drank and smoked too much
When you had a jaw
We played Chess for a month
You won five games to four
You passed out on the floor
When you had a jaw

Saw Halley's Comet streaking by
Saw Perseids light up the sky
With telescopes or on our backs
The universe was at our grasp
Singing Amazing Grace at dawn
Teaching me right, teaching me wrong
You sure did have a way with song
Way back when you had a jaw

When you had a jaw
We slept under the stars
When you had a jaw
You raised me at the bars
Got real good at pool
Turned out a lot like you
When you had a jaw

Checkmate in seven moves or less
Warp zones and Contra codes are pests
Sinking the eight ball on the break
Skipping the journey to our fate
Bring back Amazing Grace at dawn
Teaching me right, teaching me wrong
Bring back the journey and the song
We sang when you had a jaw

I struggle to remember your face
When you're right in front of me
I struggle to remember the ways
You aggravated me
I struggle with how I must confess
I miss your cigarettes

For you, the stars are shining bright
