Track Name: Plot Devices
Separating what you want and what you need
Count the seconds we arrive until we leave
I toss pennies in the fountain of your grief
I blow dust in your eyes to keep your arms out of reach

Separating how I hunt and how I feed
Crouching quiet in the bushes while you speak
I plant seeds in your head, watch them spring up to life
Harvest in the home, under pale moonlight

Can’t you see the plot devices, in the stories I tell to justify
My incessant need to compromise. Ill disappear if I self-actualize any further

Separating every word from what it means
You interpret my intentions as you please
I’ve been learning languages you don’t know
I’ve been hiding messages underneath of your nose

Separating superstitions from beliefs
We collectively, unconsciously agree
I was in the mirror stage, reading palms for my pay
Patterns in the tea that you threw in my face

When the sun shines down on the nothing new
You know I’m only trying to have a little fun with you
For lack of anything that I’d rather do
You know I’m only trying to have a little fun with you
Track Name: River Days
Here comes your river days, here comes your afternoon gin-and-tonic haze
Here comes your grow-your-beard-out-and-stop-trying phase
It’s a miracle you even know your name

Here comes the third world war, you swear it’s happening outside of your door
Here comes the woman you love
But she’ll never be more
It’s a miracle she even knows your name

You know there’s no point in trying
To get off your island
There’s nowhere to go

And now you realize the earth is a circle
A permanent ripple
There’s never been more

Than just the river flowing,
Slowly filling your brain

Here comes your river days, here comes your season of perpetual waste
Here comes your throw-the-baby-out-with-the-bathwater phase
It’s a miracle you even know your name

Here comes the gattling gun, hits like a feeling that you’ll never outrun
Here comes the woman you love, loose from the web you spun
It’s a miracle she even knows your name
