Track Name: Hibernationstate
you had nothing at the end
but salt in your wounds
a bleak repetition
passed down to you

walled up and caved in
conquered with no cure
imprisoned in this

hands up
map's amiss
land's full
lines in earth's chest
cast out and
blurred in orbit
nowhered somewhere
on the margins

captured relics
in your grips
from the pocket of history
tangled legs
conjured to bury
busted and glowing

in the spaces
on the pavement
a relief of a face
tolerance is demolishing
itself in its own name

absent and astray
waste has nested
implausible to stomach

listless enough
to sleep it off
without ending
swallowed by a fissure

the current rushes in us
exhausted untamed and flooded
gathering lies straight through a cut in the cables

future's been collapsing
heaved headed
it's where we're heading
Track Name: Sleep Shock
sleep estranged
stolen doze
the nights are staged
another's face
standing in

voices call out
weather distance
nameless now
the phrase escapes
it's not enough

the price was paid
for waking up
shocked to morning

less and less
myths in darkness
are disappearing

heady in rest
panic settles
and colonizes

the weight is against you
razing the past you've grown
shorted out and thread-barren
leveled electric
a vision of excess
will learn you a lesson
time will fuck you
time will fuck you man
Track Name: Misogamist
false tradition
explained away
familiar trap
domestic stage

stumbled in
your imprisonment
a cell of meaning
is meaningless

worth its weight
in dead ethic
the paper game
the looming exit

the puzzled other
never coupled
an origin in piss
built atop the pillar

cheated death while dealing it
time vampire
quit yet you're not finished
the milk days expire
Track Name: Unknowing The End
you put the con in context
heavy cost of the unrest

you put the past in it's place
conditioned to disconnect

unknowing wasted life's work
been in
a pain
truth at knife point
in shrouded pages

some lurid science gives you
of guilt
in chronologic tidal waves

agency withheld
always at arms-length
grazing fingertips
or weaving right through them

naming the unnamed
stoned awakening
upened daydream
aghast and slaved away
