Track Name: Airwaves
i'm looking for a meaning
beyond the ol' bling and breed
you buying what i'm selling,
or taking it when i don't see?

lady i feel sick
i can barely go on
got it when i'm gone

i'm dreaming of the airwaves
and phoning in a third LP

the writers aren't reading

lady i feel sick
i can barely go on
got it when i'm gone

innocence or ecstasy
are so untold
and all i know is what i've seen

so get it on

lady i feel sick
i can barely go on
got it when i'm gone
Track Name: Forgetting Day
lie in the street just drinking and screaming
they would lock all their doors and i was the reason
both the dog and his master, i was a cancer
with a place in your lover and on to another

if you see me, you see me when i'm down
and if i'm dreaming you'll come around
the way you see me, see me going down
and if you'll see me, i'll come around

i remember every part, time, place, and thing
though you're always in review, you're still forgetting
that you get older every time you go drinking
just reminding me that i am just beginning

and if you see me, you see me when i'm down
and if i'm dreaming, you'll come around
the way you see me, see me going down
and if you'll see me, i'll come around

the way you see me
you see me as i'm going down
and if i'm dreaming
i know that you will come around

the way you see me
you see me as i'm going down
you'll see me come around
Track Name: Loose Tooth
deafening intensity is the default for me
the gnashing cavity grinds automatically

here i am already gone with autopilot on
when i am underground will i remember this town?

i've been running circles trying to flee my inner workings
the hours seem to pass me further by
just a dreamer

barium and ultrasound
until the cancer is found
i shake like i'm a loose tooth
collapsing under you

here i am already gone
with autopilot on
when i am underground
will i remember this town?

i've been running circles trying to flee my inner workings
the hours seem to pass me further by
just a dreamer

i've been running circles trying to flee my inner workings
life it seems has passed before my eyes
just a dreamer
Track Name: Missing
hotel choppings got me thinking
the pleasure is expiring
but there's a way of changing things

i got sights on it and it's what i'm dreaming
and it's feeling like it's what i'm really needing
i'm gone, moving on, i'm done tolerating
if i'm needing any, won't be missing any

eyes dilating / heart is racing
just shut your mouth and lock the door
give me what i came for

i got sights on it and it's what i'm dreaming
and it's feeling like it's what i'm really needing
i'm gone, moving on, i'm done tolerating
if i'm needing any, won't be missing any

when the gods have made their claim
of what the angels say
and they fail to mention me
the saint

la da da da
i got sights on it and it's what i'm dreaming
and it's feeling like it's what i'm really needing
i'm gone, moving on, i'm done tolerating
if i'm needing any, won't be missing any
Track Name: Subterranea
read me: i'm leaving here today
bringing the things i can't replace
truthfully, if pain is all you need,
here i am! the answer that you seek

on the warping tile
in this broken throne
let me be erased
you will not see my face

blissfully, i shovel til i'm deep
finally free as i am buried

in this muddy tomb
subterranea
let me be erased
you will not see my face

nothing will change
let me be erased
Track Name: Skrimshaw
instrumental
Track Name: Foxxy
send me on my way, drifting and reeling
since the time change, i lost all the feeling
dissonant chords, resonant meaning
i could take it all, the time is up

now i live foxxy, maybe, fake it baby
waiting lately fucking kills me

send me to my grave, working for nothing
wasting every day, emotional teething
flashier coin is brighter receiving
could have had it all, but i fucked it up

now i live foxxy, maybe, fake it baby
waiting lately fucking kills me
Track Name: Walking Stick
feed myself with a stream
snap my roots and lose a leaf
want to walk but just a tree
shedding seeds for windy dreams

this horizon is all i've known
in the thousand years that i have grown
inch by inch, just a tree
wondering who planted me

this horizon is all i've known
in the thousand years that i have grown
finally walking free
searching for who planted me
