Track Name: Pain And The Joy Of It All
Out into the torrent,
Swirling chaotic violent,
Pushed against our will,
Exploit, steal and kill,

Unspeakable horrors outside my door,
Every new day seems to bring more,

Plumb the depths of darkness,
Extinguish hope of kindness,
Time rushes forwards,
No respite, no room for cowards,
Press deeper into the void,
Face death you can’t avoid,

We want to believe it's all controlled,
By ourselves or some God terrifying to behold,
So we can delegate our fearfulness,
Push away the realization of our helplessness,

It’s too loud, It’s too loud, turn it off,
It’s too fast, It’s too fast, let me off,
Hurdling through our lives,
Realize everything dies,
It’s too loud, It’s too loud, turn it off,
It’s too fast, It’s too fast, let me off,
Stare into the face of strife,
Look deep into the death of all life,

Don’t look away,

Meditate on the corrupted God of law,
Deity red in tooth and claw,
You who couldn’t do better than this,
You who touts omnipotence.
Track Name: The Mirror Stage
We used to have a better knowing,
Before the reflection started showing,
We knew in sweeping fits of laughter,
Crying eyes and wordless chatter,

A terrific unity followed us in,
Perhaps only what knows else-ways is sin,

Oh you concocted image,
Devil and angel in that visage,
Recipient of grandest dreams,
Stumbling block of largest beams,
Can I unsee your smiling face?
Can I wrest myself from your embrace?

Heart of a child can we ever go back,
To a sense before all became white and black,
Cause I looked in that mirror to see that small other,
Looked back to the smiling face of my mother,
And I told my first lie,
That this image was the sum of “I”

Oh you concocted image,
Devil and angel in that visage,
Recipient of grandest dreams,
Stumbling block of largest beams,
Can I unsee your smiling face?
Can I wrest myself from your embrace?
Track Name: Missing Limbs
The shame of getting better,
Embarrassment of seeing clearer,
The addict’s shakes, the bitter tastes,
This brutal bloody making space,

Take your pound of flesh and bliss,
Dark and pulsing piece I’ll miss,

I keep missing the limbs - cut off and cast into hell,
I might make it up to heaven, but I’ll regret my sins farewell,
Cause I’m living with the devil everyday,
I know his vicious sway,

Climbing up my brain,
Running through my veins,
I know what kind of man I am,

Ashamed of even mourning,
That mirrored face contorting,
When I was young I dressed myself and went where I chose,
Now I stretch out my hands my direction imposed,
When I was young I dressed myself and went where I chose,
Now I stretch out my hands my direction imposed,
Track Name: Perhaps, My Loves
I live every second waiting for it to go away,
That void of years chase my mind’s decay,
Cause I’m dying every day,
Can’t remember when I was formed from clay,
I could be a million years old,
But I would never know unless I’m told,


Cause the truth is that I’m terrified,
Of losing everything I find,
That fills my heart’s hole,
Cause I have no control,
I can’t keep them close enough,
Can’t hold them tight enough,
Can’t cause the sun to rise,
Helpless under heavy skies,

Caution comes creeping,
Back of my mind thinking,
As the stakes get higher,
Look in the face of my daughter,
Think of who I want to be for her,
Think of who I want to be for her,

Is living enjoying the responsibility?
Or acting like they don’t depend on me?


Cause the truth is that I’m terrified,
Of losing everything I find,
That fills my heart’s hole,
Cause I have no control,
I can’t keep them close enough,
Can’t hold them tight enough,
Can’t cause the sun to rise,
Helpless under heavy skies,
Track Name: Interlude
When will my time be up?
When will my time be up?
When will that shadow slide over my door post,
See I’m too weak to spill blood of lambs I loved most,

Perhaps my loves I’m never good enough,
Perhaps my loves I’m made of broken stuff,
And I can’t hold it all together,
Can’t hold my own life forever,
Perhaps my loves I’m not strong enough,
Perhaps my loves it was all a bluff,
And I can’t hold the good and bad together,
Can’t hold my own life forever.
Track Name: Joy And The Pain Of It All
Cause I need all this darkness so I know when it’s light,
I face my own death so I don’t forget to fight,
For every moment fleeting past me,
Every second I can be or not be,
Cause consciousness is a choice,
To silence that incessant voice,

Choose to be where you are,
Pull back thoughts from afar,
Fully see life and death, past and present and bow,
Brought to knee before the eternal naked now,

What can I do to find enlightened eyes,
Less than you can do to make the sun rise,
So what point is the practice you prescribe,
To make sure you’re awake when the sun hits the skies,

This insistent beauty,
Undeniable mystery,
Light in darkness,
Sound in silence,
Eternal this-ness,
Chosen existence,

I choose this paradox for my own,
I relax and fall back a stone,
Dropped in the eternal ocean,
Forever fading into endless motion,

I become a part of the flow,
Between the three, never any, but all, I know,

What can I do to find enlightened eyes,
Less than you can do to make the sun rise,
So what point is the practice you prescribe,
To make sure you’re awake when the sun hits the skies,
