Track Name: Speak
SPEAK

one tide, one wave, one moon.

one night one will be one, soon.

untold fortunes in six words,

often soft spoken and not heard.

if there's a dream that you've wrought but you haven't yet sung.

speak that dream from the deep blackness, shattering lungs.

are you gonna speak?

speak all.

one child, one fate, one doom.

one beast, one cage, one room.

infant builds a village if it can.

it's a shame but it's just man.

if there's a thought that mere words just can not illustrate,

open your throat and devote your whole body and scream.

are you gonna speak all?

if i take this to my grave, i took you at your word.

vulnerability, rage, often seen but not heard.

one black mark on white page.

chances are that you won't come back, but maybe you'll find some peace.

chances are... but if you don't come back, at least you said your piece.

are you gonna speak?

speak...
Track Name: Shuriken Dance
SHURIKEN DANCE

i want to feel the earth when i throw this down,

when every day (every day) is the last dance.

just feel it beat, just feel it beat, just feel it beat

straight from the heart into the sun.

straight from the heart into the sun.

your silhouette is striking.

straight from the heart into the sun.

shuriken, know when your time is and take hold.

shuriken, know when your time is and wait.

in time i'll feel these words, my limbs will know their sound.

put all my strength (all my strength) into the last dance.

just feel it beat, just feel it beat, just feel it beat

straight from the heart into the sun.

straight from the heart into the sun.

shuriken, know when your time is and take hold.

shuriken dance, know when your time is and wait.

sh sh ssshhhh

shuriken dance!

woo!

dance, get up your ass on that floor.

last chance, this is your last chance.

this is your last chance now, this is your last chance.

last chance, last chance, last chance, last chance.

dance shuriken, dance shuriken, dance shuriken, dance.
Track Name: Brotherman
Brotherman

friends

they may come and go again

there are some that seem to blend

and transcend the lines that define the family

crossing bloodlines fault lines and finish lines

to prove that they will still be

here when we need them

they're the one's that help us to forget our regret

and never look back

never look back

it's never too late

never look back on life and fret

we've got all this time to spend

we won't wallow in regret

we'll transcend the lines that define the family

crossing bloodlines fault lines and finish lines

to prove that we were still be here

we will be here

brothers and sisters

never look back

it's never too late

never let go

never look back on your life and think...

!@$?!@$?!@$?$?@?!$@?$@?@?~!?!

friends who stand by me until the end

i promise I will be here

to stand by you until the end

i promise i will be here

to stand by you until the end

i promise

i will be here until the end

i will be here, no shame, no regret

i will be here til the end

no shame, no regret

never look back

never look back

never look back

NEVER LOOK BACK

NEVER LOOK BACK

NEVER LOOK BACK

NEVER LOOK BACK
Track Name: Dead Duck Dock
DEAD DUCK DOCK

and the earth shook, ebbing underneath my feet.

and the windswept desert wept tears for me.

and the waves went forth

from the breath-shaped shallows i left behind.

i will strive to walk the path of the immovable heart.

it's all around me...

means all awry, coveting the ends.

sober nights so seldom had.

humankind, some kind of man.

what does my life portend?

i will strive to walk the path of the immovable heart.
Track Name: Become Nothing
BECOME NOTHING

anti-violence (anti-bodies)

viral lashing (in my body)

this one's for your tight clenched ass hole

tight lipped i'm left sightless (you march upon my back)

eternal spiral curve

acute dyslexic lack of terminal verbal velocity

shit piss spit vinegar and venom

when i'm face to face with my enemies

the very thieves stealing my pride

(ego-face, my disgrace, there is no time)

to decide who will die and who will survive

(no defeat, no retreat, no meat, no mind)

i'm caught up, i'm entrenched, torrential rise.

suffering and sick with hate, peeled, ripe.

anti-violence (anti-bodies)

violent lashing (in my body)

restless finger on the kill switch

one slip, wrong step, it's flipped

(attack!!!) a homicidal nerve split.

tendons severed, snapped. synapses burn.

no concern for life or death or pain

what have i become?

what have i become?

i'm cut up as i retch, my clenched teeth grind.

suffering and sick with hate, peeled, ripe.

so i backup from the edge of rage and rewind.

the serpent i recoil, i will keep what is mine.

i will keep what is mine.

I WILL KEEP WHAT IS MINE.

look me in the eye and see if you can find a single shred of meat

that you can fit into your fantasy of my defeat

i won't be there...

i won't be your next meal, no...

nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing nothing i will become

become nothing and you can not be broken down.

become nothing...you can not be broken down.

nothing...

become nothing

you can not be broken.
Track Name: What!?!?
WHAT!?!?

what's on the line? what's at stake?

what's in this universe for me?

what what!?!? what what!?!?

all words watered down will fade like blood

soiling slips of silken wormhole wood.

unknown forces push one forward back.

undone understanding, unborn fact.

and this is more than we can bargain for.

it's all this life is for.

undecided people say what.

what what!?!? what what!?!?

the enlightened people say woop!

woop woop!!! woop woop!!!

all this time is worn upon one's back.

shoulder borne and elbow thrown with tact.

all our faces wear the years.

what's pity for? for pity's sake?

forsaken by our insidious flags.

there's so much more here than we can bargain for.

it's all this life is for.

give up the act, come out with your hands up.

you can't keep pushing everything aside while you run and hide instead.

give up the act, come out with your hands up.

you can't keep pushing everything aside.
Track Name: Jump Ya Bones
JUMP YA BONES

jump ya bones! jump ya bones! jump ya bones! jump ya bones!

shame is a thing that no one should feel.

there's no shame in feeling good.

itching, uncomfortable cause your skin's been flayed off

by catty judgment calls. they're snatching your satisfaction.

want some action? better catch them all.

before they break ya bones.

you've got to jump ya bones.

i know that there's no telling where it started.

oh no, you know i never ask why.

all i know is when you're weary, start walking.

shoulders, those, hips, these and thighs.

jump ya bones! jump ya bones! jump ya bones! jump ya bones!

i look the way that i want to feel but i don't feel the way i look.

i'm much more comfortable when i'm free and i flail around.

that's what my body's for.

this floor can be all my booty call when i'm throwing down.

and i will make that call, i'll never work the wall, i'll take it all on.

you've got an erotic body, don't you doubt, you know you've got it.

jump ya bones! jump ya bones! jump ya bones! jump ya bones!
Track Name: Grip The Cage
Grip The Cage

below the mellow undertow, a lung collapse.

and throats are choking on the embryos

depending on the posts, pillars and pedestals.

the sky, the spinal bend, the eye beholds the constellation's smiles.

we behold each other and we speak on for a while in search of another way.

know how far we've come, feel the tracing sun.

say to yourself you're alive, pick a scab of sky.

meanwhile, awry, the taste of bile is buying time but time is null.

epiphanies are breezing by and by and we are climbing through the undergrowth.

death, we were cheating death. the cage is overhead.

underhand your grip is slipping, it can barely hold.

but these four fingers they won't let you fall.

know how far we've come, feel the tracing sun.

say to yourself you're alive, pick a scab of sky.

and find yourself another way.

there has to be another way to say to you...

know how far we've come, feel the tracing sun.

say to yourself you're alive.

pick a scab and know how far we've come.

feel the tracing sun.

and say to yourself you're alive

pick a scab of sky and find yourself another way.

find yourself another way.

find yourself another way.

find yourself.
Track Name: Azaria
AZARIA

cut off an armistice.

age: young.

pages torn out by the arm of a scissor.

sing a serenade, lullabilingual because it can't tell what you feel.

azaria, as far as you may seem,

here we are and life is not a dream.

i can't believe that with all this time left barely touched

we could bury all the things that we believe.

i can't believe.

cut, cut, cut off, cut off...

azaria, as far as you may seem,

here we are and life is not a dream.

i can't believe that with all this time left barely touched

we could bury all the things that we believe.

i still believe.

as far as you may seem,

here we are and life is not a dream.

azaria don't fall asleep.

we barely touched, we won't bury all the things that we believe.

i still believe.
Track Name: Slavehemence
SLAVEHEMENCE

with open arms i welcome change.

open hearts can never be enslaved.

with open arms i welcome change.

open hearts can never be enslaved.

i've got to change, my eyes have sunken in.

i've never known of naught but suffering.

i crossed the line and left right left right left my discipline behind.

now i wonder why i can't sleep through the nights.

cold fear for days living a life of pain.

with open arms i welcome change.

open hearts can never be enslaved.

doo doot da doot doot dooo SQUEAK!

AAAUUUGGHHHHHGHH (pig pig pig squeal)

AAAHHHH!!!

i'm so afraid my heart will just give up one day.

one never knows what one's own fate may bring.

i crossed the line and stepped right left right left

right out on a limb, i was blind.

i can't sleep through the nights, cold fear for days.

what keeps me alive when every day i might die?

hope will carry you, smoke will bury you.

hope will carry you and your yoke.

a slave must carry on.

smoke will bury you.

there's a yoke a slave must carry, must carry on.

with open arms i welcome change.

open hearts can never be enslaved.

when fear has come and when you fall, and you fear your pain,

remember all that you have wrought, and feel your pain.

it's your pain.
