Track Name: Of Course I Still Care
You see order and light
I see stars at night
Far, cold and dark
Between the fire

With no hand to hold me
I step onto the ice
I will hold on
Until I fall

Only
Flesh
And breath and nothing more
Still
This life
It is mine to give

When we all fail
My small beating heart
Can pump fire for you
Until it stops

Just the blink of an eye
We are born rise and die
But we live
that is enough

Only
Flesh
And breath and nothing more
Still
This life
It is mine to give

Now
It’s cold
And the waters rise
Still
Your life
Is beautiful to me

Though stars never know
Or measure your worth
I’ll carve it on me
Of course I still care
Track Name: Breaking Through the Cracks of Our City
On these clear lines
life escapes
Silent structure
hardened grace

Break through binding
pavement rough
Find the cracks in
where we
live

Break through
this canvas

Chaos brings us
vibrant glow
winding through this
structured town

green veins flow through
red and white
let this warm heart
claim your
home

Break through
This canvas

Flow down this road
Golden with dirt
Feeding our streams
Violent flood

Grinding sinew
Broken vines
Water, pigment
Will grow life

Strangle concrete
Nature crawls
Swallow, explode
Down these
walls

Tear through
this canvas

Following through
Painted lines
These arteries
Feed our music

Follow down this
well worn path
a reminder
of our past

Plastic silence
Holds our breath
Every footstep
Will be our
Last

Tear down
this canvas
Track Name: The Work Of Hands
Running
over
to the
water tower

Miles of
wire
Growing
Overnight

Walls have formed
Make your other
Operating
With your silence

Failing
Weather
Breaks the
Barren earth

Pray for
clear skies
to erupt
in laughter

Don’t pretend
They will listen
to your pleading
Empty judgment

Escape the work of hands
Hold molten art
Bury your highway
Bury your heart

Recruit the works of man
Poison the wall
Silence the growth it feeds
Starve in clean halls

Angles
Broken
in the
landscape

Mile a
Minute
tearing
down your bridges

Violent motion
Breaks this border
Churning fire
Source unknown
Verse 2b:
Growing
tendrils
claw the
masonry

Rounding
edges
dulling all
your senses

Buried by the
Emerald carpet
Lost your breath
at the corner

Recruit the works of man
Poison the wall
Silence the growth it feeds
Starve in clean halls
Track Name: The Bear
With shell and shot
You’ve come to talk

To whom does this Wood
Belong?

Sheath my claws?
Share a fence with you
And live?

You think my
Coat and claws

Perhaps,
Mean I’m dull?

I invite
You to war on me
And die
Come die with me

If I could Buy your death with mine
Would I?

If I could Buy your death with mine
Should I?

If I could Buy your death with mine
Would I?

If I could Buy your death with mine
Should I?

Let us see what
Slights we can bear

Or burn the World
To erase the scent of you?

Will you be satisfied
With this bribe?

Or will I make My last
Meal of you?

Tear your heart
With these hands
Or to pull
down your face

Sun is now
Find the glow
Grow the Blade
from this Hand

The last time
Breathe this air
let it free
lungs unclean

break the earth
without nails
We’ll consume
Clear blue sky

Break this bond
Silent space
Drift aside
Fragment whole

harbor mist
Flower gold
Shadow low
Cold is now
Track Name: Succession
All surrounded
By three walls
One and only
Free way out

Bear me
Through this fire
Break me
Through this shell

Falling under
This red wool
Makes this mental
Image whole

Crush me
Underfoot
I will
Become many

As I sprout up
Tear to fragments

Bear me

Bear Me

Bear me Through this
Fire Let me live
Break through This wall
I become one whole

Ripen until
I break free
Break my essence
Force out life

Bear Me
Through this Fire
Break me
Through this shell

Fertilized
incandescence
Rich with life
energy

Crush me
Underfoot
I will
Become many

As I grow up
Feel the sun

Bear me

Bear Me

Bear me Through this
Fire Let me live
Break through This wall
I become one whole
Turn this March Wind
From Gentle to Strong
Bear me Across Waves
Germinate in foreign soil
Track Name: Stars Blink
Finding
The lighthouse
Through this
Boiling storm

We feel
This movement
Follow through
This mountain

Clearing
Without course
Forward
Without a name

Tear through
Every path
To find
Another peak


When the Light breaks
Like Eyes had forgotten
The need for Reflection
A Fresh breath of air

Breathing
for water
Reaching
for air

I sense
a moment
pregnant
with fire


Tearing
through soil
no thought
unturned

Reveal
your clear skin
Split through
your head

When the Light breaks
Like Eyes had forgotten
The need for Reflection
A Fresh breath of air

stars in
half the sky
Death in
the other

Drop the
breaking mold
Jump through
Blinking stars

Then the light broke
The sky was clear
