Track Name: Esperanto Song
don't be afraid my precious one
you're just confused by these independent thoughts

so stay quiet and lie still,
and i'll make sure this all goes away

don't think negatively or worry,
you'll be safe as long as i'm in complete control

so stay quiet and lie still,
and i'll make sure this all goes away
Track Name: Tread
when the flies and the moths put me under the light,
i had no choice but to tell the truth
the first time you saw this happen,
you enjoyed it so much you wanted it to happen again

well, they told me they're gonna come for you, my friend
and no attempts of rationalization will save you

i've been far too quiet for far too fucking long
and i just hope that the warm breeze was worth it to you

one day they're gonna come for you, my friend
and no success or pathetic pleading will save you
the flies and the moths will eat you alive
and we'll live in their bellies together forever
Track Name: A Pause More Dynamic than Motion
in this light, i will meet blindness halfway
staring at the sun inch its way by once again

and all i can offer you is devotion
in this, a pause more dynamic than motion

i will starve myself and break my back for this
i will not sleep until this iron is removed from my spine

and all i can offer you is devotion
in this, a pause more dynamic than motion

i will allow you to tear apart everything i've created
and i will love you while you destroy me

i will meet blindness halfway

and all i can offer you is devotion
in this, a pause more dynamic than motion

i will allow you to destroy everything i've created
because there is and never was a choice
Track Name: Psilosybical
i know when there's next to nothing left,
you're going to pull me from the fire
the ashes, though rapidly falling away,
are what's keeping me together
the stones will remain warm
until the last lines are extinguished
all but inevitable to those
who survive by not stepping to the edge

your altercations, never fought,
can never truly be won

all that once existed is slipping away
the temples and sciences have been forgotten
flashes of light and weightlessness pull me back to you

i know when there's next to nothing left,
you're going to pull me from the fire
attempting to find beauty
in this ugliness that you've made
as if finding any potential residue
will make a difference
eventually, even love
will find itself eroding

the frightening similarities
can even cause unrest in the deepest coma

everything became so clouded
when the storm had passed
misappropriations of undue hostilities
never sympathetic enough to hesitate,
frozen in obliviousness

i know when there's next to nothing left,
you're going to pull me from the fire
and try to dry the condensation
that keeps us alive
you can try to dry the scent of rust and mildew
but this once rigid decaying matter
is relaxing in the soil

these softened muscles have contracted for the final time.
i will not live through this again.
Track Name: A Temporary State of Affairs
leaving me with only what i had
no one else could make hell appealing

this is all not as easy as it looks
you could never do the things that i do
you can go fuck yourself and i mean this
i am ready to jump without a plan

i thought you'd be there

limitless we'd push on without further thought
nothing could ever stand in our way
you and me and everyone around the two of us
would live forever and never quiet down

i thought you'd be there
Track Name: MK IV
come with me, little one
i'll be the one to keep you strong
you've been weakened by history
but i'll be the one to set you free

come with me, little one
i'll be the one to keep you safe

the scary ghosts won't hurt you
if you let me into your life

monsters don't bite if you don't know they're there
so quiet down and be still
be still
be still

the scary ghosts won't hurt you
if you let me into your mind
