Track Name: Hours. Pt 1
I walked in the shallows
bare feet in the mush
snakes bite my ankles

stop stop
don’t stop

dark air
dark musk
it’s musty and damp

Pray for me

I said it to begin with
bury my face in my hands and cry
god I’m relentless

when the sun sets
and I still cry
blood wrenching screams
teeth gnaw pillows
force to break bed posts
insensitive cures
Track Name: As It Needs To Be...
Selfish, I waited for the space between my teeth to close
Selfless, I left my jaw plated in gold at the foot of your bed

Sinister, I pressed my tongue into the inside of your cheek
Sincerely, I craved the way your eyes hid and forever gave me purpose

Please remember my name,
Always and forever…
Track Name: Perception/Prescription
Another blissful evening on the water
hands clutched on broken teeth
serrated gums
trying to bite till bloodshed
so that we may cry together again

The water lay still like glass
you squeezed my hand tightly
bones turned to dust
sky burning with sundown
to be alone forever
we promised with forceful regrets
pores filled with salt
mind bloated;postmortem growth
the body at the bottom of the sea

We kissed in sunset’s reflection

your taste was unfamiliar
sub-lingual ghosts
calling away your lips
chemical drenched exchanges of saliva
more salt than the deep

Startled I lifted my eyes to the horizon
land nowhere in sight
our lips begin to part
the sky turns to black
the ocean cold

we drift away

never to be found
Track Name: Admittance
I just keep looking but I can’t see anything
I just keep trying to see through the fog in my head

Nothing is there
Nothing at all, I just keep looking for anything

Took 50 pills just to get to sleep again
Took 50 more just to keep my head again
Took 50 one last time to keep from pushing you away

I’m drowning in more chemicals, then the time I have left in days
I’m trying to learn to handle myself so I won’t be left for dead

The worst part is I forget
The worst part is I won’t remember

I can’t see anything
I can’t see anything from before

All my memories are turning to mud
All I want is to be there so I can make more
All I want is to be anything that I was to you before

I remember waking up
I remember falling asleep

I don’t remember if I ever woke up again
Track Name: All It Needs To Be... Pt. 2&3
We can drink it up
and we'll be dead

Dead holding hands in the mirror
at the end of the hallway

"This will have to come with us"

In the mirror I look at only myself
for an answer
an appropriate response

"Everything will have to come with us"

I'll have to take a drink
waiting is far worse than poison


I wish we never Left
