If you could hold time in your hand, would it all just slip away? Mixing night into day, we know how this all ends We've seen all this before Time spirals and it links But seldomly dead-ending If you could hold time in your hand, and formed a tightened fist Could we run in reverse? We know how this all ends And will you come to regret what hasn't happened yet? Or will you use the power to try and stop the worst? If you lived in reverse you'd see the end come first You'll know - oh no At the end of time I climb into the womb The only place where I can get away from truth From youth From doom

There's fading power in my eyes determination to conclude a losing fight With sweet, sweet failure in sight and so much left to lose I am awash with the relief of letting all I love ignite and burn I'll make it burn I lay my head down in the ash all snug and wrapped in regret and watch as green, green shoots grow up like shards of glass As it lulls me into sleep I feel a comfort knowing that if I don't sow then I won't reap I'll make it null

Alone in my room at night, I'm lying in my bed My ears keep on ringing to the music in my head I can't sleep, it gets so loud and drowns out all the thoughts that should be mine, and mine alone It's the only thing no one can touch Feels like my skin is burning I'm so frayed, my nails are to the quick My bones, I know that they will bend but they won't break They will never break How weird it is to realize that the way you see yourself doesn't line up evenly with your placement on their shelf What's inside is like a tiger, and it's clawing at the bars The winds I feel them changing, they will take me where I want to go Yes, I think it really matters If you are dying in your own skin It can't wait It's all just a combination of blood, muscles, and our bones They will never break Yes it really matters, yes it really matters to me I will never break

Pictures are grey burned and decayed memories will fade I saw you there standing right there won't walk away memories will fade After that day that time and that space never be the same Well, I'm always looking to find a place that's safe but I wish I didn't have to I've got to find a place to breathe To be ok...leave the past far away And the world tomorrow like the world today will be full of monsters who often get their way I will not be broken I will not be bound I will not be told That I shouldn't make a sound But now I think it's better to choose your own family than wait for the will to die with the one you've got True, what doesn't kill you just makes the pain hurt less But don't forget yourself even the dead parts Still alive, with all the scars and all the dead parts

Your nadir's reached again and you are looking back At all the tailings from your pits shiny and black Surging pools, absorbing heat The same mistakes have left you naked, cold, and incomplete Meanwhile, downriver, where your tailings all do flow Headed straight to people who love you the most They head upstream with clothes to comfort you Catastrophic floods destroy their homes while out of view And you shake all of the toxins off you Straight from your skin into the river Now you want to run away and not look back But all your actions made that road a poisoned track People want to forgive you, when you beg to redeem But where is all the help for people who were harmed downstream? And you shake all of the toxins off you Straight from your skin into the river You get support from engines of redemption Those who survive you have to fix things on their own Acceptance and forgiveness For the ones who poison the river While everyone downstream has to fix things on their own ...because that is all we know

video for Empty Rooms HERE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MW-iIjbrKe0 Empty Rooms Closing doors and words unspoken I don’t remember enough of you I can’t hear your voice. Marble, steel and glass Memories blur and edges darken I don't remember enough of you I can't hear your voice Images don't come through Buried inside my head We build these rooms inside our heads We build them, and never live in them Mausoleum walls Not talking, just empty echoing Can you hear the echoes? So many times we talked and talked And I knew that you would answer me In empty rooms, the echoes are all that answer me Alive or dead here, it’s all the same here Can you hear the echoes?

In the west they gutted you Looted most and killed the rest Half-truths, golden parachutes In the west they say it's for the best You said if I'd wait then you'd give me what I want In the west we follow the rest But dig our own graves They say it's manifest The price of progress In the west they sat it's true You cut the tree but keep the nest Well, when the others are all used up In the west they'll sell you like the rest You said if I'd wait then you'd give me what I want follow, follow, follow, follow, follow In the west the sun never sets A sun cold and grey Our destiny is manifest We'll be our own slaves

Hey, can you hear it? Can you hear that sound? I am the running dog, I’d like to cheat the system, Just like a welfare queen, I’d like to bleed the beast. When I hear the sound of bells across the floor for morning opening I feel a tingle, from my scalp down to my knees And the calls roll in All day until bells sound closing And I lie, and cheat and steal But do I sleep at night? Hey, can you hear that sound at night? It comes from deep inside I am the injured dog, I tried to bleed the beast. Bailout or will I fail, At least I know I’ll get what’s mine. Because hey, can you hear that sound at night? Can you hear it, tell me It comes from deep inside. Hey, can you hear those bells at night? They kill from deep inside.

With light from a billion suns We fight, pushing night away Our choice, warm or sterile All show what we don't want to know Inside our caves, around our graves We move at the speed of sound To go where we shouldn't be Our blood clots in hands and feet They die and we lose them We trade our legs to speed away And the rising tide we have created Fills our mouths with byproducts of everything All the wheels and gears, turning and grinding Taking human space, making room for more Wheels and gears We must produce We must consume We must ignite We must all fight Now all the death we've made Comes in with the tide Meat grows from lifeless cells, we must produce we must consume And all the light we fake slices up our eyes We push the night away so we can make and use and use We fly straight to the sun, but fall into the sea And on the ground they're dreaming Wax wings, flying to the sun Of all the flights they'll take Wax melts, falling to the sea But even darkness falling Won't save you from the burning sky We fight For the final time With light Billion suns in one Consume Burning up the sky We lose, every one of us Produce, consume, all fight, ignite Produce – consume – abuse – no use No wings nor legs we stare at space

It’s all the same now Shooting out of control It’s all the same If you want it Count the hearts you stole Like molecules we collide and hit each other Only to go and run away Circling our spheres like planets In and out, in and out of space It’s all the same now Open hands will hold With closed eyes you will see nothing Just feel nothing but the cold It’s all the same now Shooting out of control It’s all the same If you want it Count the hearts you stole Like molecules we collide and hit each other Only to go and run away Circling our spheres like planets In and out, in and out of space In and out from time to time to time Orbits do not run in a perfect line In and out from time to time to time
