Track Name: Dying Proof
There she was, pneumatic as can be
Every stride she took was testament of tragedy
The dying proof of perseverance without gain or consequence
The quilt was sewn together with lame excuses
To hide the lies, the truth that bores your life
A spiral of debris that you so happily devised
For deflection and reverence, but the well is running dry
It pays to be a spectacle in your own eyes
Dying Proof
The burden is light, unimpressive on its own
Layer after layer til the pile overflows
To fill the plot holes in this story and the fiction section is full
There's only space for truth in this crowded room
To feed the need; the attention that you seek
Padding up the tale lie your head and go to sleep
And live the dream that you've been seeing in that old kaleidoscope
Contact with reality dims your severed hope
Track Name: Petition Anchor
Lock up the gates, turn off the lights
Flood the streets with hatred, rest your head knowing you're right
Pillow of lies, predisposed eyes
We're torn between our ancestry and imaginary lines
Keep the soil sacred
With barbed wire blessings
And petitions
Admission with fare that's not fair
The anchor you dropped was not heavy enough to be spared
Let's build a wall bloodstained and all
They try to climb it and we're laughing when they fall
So they succeed difficultly
Sever all those family ties and label them guilty
Keep the lands protected
With incomplete bridges
And confessions to crimes as thin as air
The anchor you dropped was not heavy enough to be spared
Keep the revenue flowing
With fine print conditions
And exceptions that trap us in the crosshairs
The anchor you dropped was not heavy enough to be spared
