Track Name: Introduction
Hello…
Goodbye…

By way of introduction, she is
Nobody but like everyone that you know
By way of introduction, Sonya
One life to one death equal parts

Hello…
Goodbye…

Nobody’s daughter
Nobody’s friend
Nobody’s enemy
Goodbye to you now
Track Name: The City
Stretch your limbs as if by morning, it’s been a long day
Slide into the City and breath deep, it consumes you
I don’t know, but I’ve been told it’s worth the trip
Creep the crawling city streets and smell the lies, the rotting desires

What have I done?
Feels like home
In this City
Feels like home

See young fools, they preach damage that they can bring down
Bold newsprint proclaims the vivid doldrums of fame
The City breaths, the City speaks, it calls to her
Big ideas spin confusion around but a small idea, might turn her around

Poignant words sing of chaos
See the poor happy souls dancing in the acid rain
I can’t escape the din, it’s pulling me in...
If I could, I would, I would…
Track Name: Hotel Desolation
Checking into...
Checking out of this life
Hotel Desolation

I can see fear coming
Down the corridor
Bringing their clean deception
And chemical dreams

Checking into...
Checking out of this life
Welcome all ye feeble minded
Checking into...
Checking out of this life
Hotel Desolation

Seek the quiet life
Not the rush
Nobody but me to blame
Nobody but you to shame
I am my own worst enemy
Track Name: Possibilities
The indices of possibilities
Played against her fears
Not laid to rest
A singer machine humming
A lonely soundtrack for the dying now
Every single eventuality
The catalog of failures from A to Z
Track Name: Gravity
If I was to be honest with myself
I am a sinking stone
It’s a long way down the wishing well
Down, down, down…


If I could I don’t think I would drift away
How could a stone ever question gravity?

For all the excitement shimmering waves
I know it’s still a well
Any good stone knows it’s place in the world
And I’ve found it here…

Expectations are low here at the bottom
I am a lonely stone
Monolithic thoughts don’t do any good
So I’ll bide my time...


If I could I don’t think I would drift away
How could a stone ever question gravity?
If I could I don’t think I would drift away
I’ve got a sinking feeling that I’m not okay

Nine
Point eight
Zero
Seven
Track Name: Sorrow
Somebody must have said…
Tidy, resolutions make the mend.
Now, slippery silence, running through my mind.
Do you ever feel the same?

A distant memory,
Crashing in front of me
Imagine, harmony,
Never, part of me
Have we learned anything?

Distance has forgotten…
Your shadow remains undaunted, haunting every thought.
With your voice, you say, assurance you speak
Will we ever cherish the washing away?

Sorrow is my trophy of despair
Wind swept alley trash,
Greets me like a long lost friend
Pain is the disease of the living
Don't you know, can't you see
The fragments of…silence speaks.

Beauty in the vision
Void is the vision
Silence speaks
Track Name: Down Low
Down low, I'm down here
Among the detritus, of a failed science

Life before now was to be assumed
The stratosphere ringing in my ear
As if the Heavens, torn from end to end
Nothing to contain, this self-constructed life.

The twisted trees of devotion
Their seeds like glitter on my skin
The brilliance of my ways
Those lovely seeds of devotion, condemn me
Itching into my skin
Itching in two

Down low, I'm down here
Among the detritus, of a failed science

Life before now, was unabridged
Reduced to five lines, rendered black on white
I can't think my way out of this pine box
I wait and see, as the Earth engulfs me

The twisted trees of devotion
Their seeds like glitter on my skin
The brilliance of my ways
Those lovely seeds of devotion, condemn me
Itching into my skin
Itching in two

I hear myself saying, I hear myself calling
There's a song in my head
I hear myself saying, I hear myself calling
Sonya, suffocating

Lift me up, exhume my better half
I see my death before me, leading me back around
Down low, I'm down here
Among the detritus of a failed science.

Sonya suffocating.…
Track Name: Believe
"And I went down to the ground, and I don't know why.
Don't tell me know, my life within Hell."
A cynics heart is how, the liar sage alive.
Mingled with death, this beauty to behold.

Believe what you will
Don't lay aside, your self-constructed pride
Believe what you will
Asinine assumptions kill

"Hey you, can you save this life, this pathetic half-life?
To the neologist, of lies I am defined (disguised)."
To bleed the better half, Cadillac of fears,
If only to find, Dictionary of Life.

Notions to the floor
A self to rebuild now
A stitching hand to bare
Set to her despair
