endless degree



oblivion's wait

back in the day all i had to say

i'm unafraid

and look into all eyes with certainty

now i run through the shade only actors on stage

feeding on wine i was giddy

reaching an even plane

and holy the roll with no self control

riding the tide of the centuries

wide enough to escape

sneaking away into oblivion's wait

looking for a lost dog to follow

shedding my skin like a snake

to astrally graze, aligning my gaze

with the eye of entirety

heaping on dead weight

to cut off all gain, the potential is pain

relieving the strain

keeping a soft spot for mystery

back in the day all i had to say

i'm unafraid

and look into your eyes with certainty



sirens

sirens the song of the city, the siren song singing you to sleep wherein

ya only pray, ya only vow, ya only honour so loud

to live the longest, the closest to wisdom, goodness, real life, and god

ya run ya neck through the buzz words and now you're fucking gone

ya done ya smidge ya lived a good life but now ya don't fucking do shit

oh my fucking god you're the fucking king and ya won't quit haunting

well i'll take your fucking taunt and i'll rip your fucking face off

with my big brain teaser i'm gonna boggle your mind

cause the light ends in fits of the living, we're lying to our bodies out of pity

the back of my mind in theory, persona non grata disappearing

a wishing well straight to hell

with open arms and tucked in tails

miscalulating the rate of fading



do you wanna dance

not too slow and not too fast

he stood to the world, do you wanna dance

with the world, do you wanna dance

with the girls, take another chance

on the world, do you wanna dance

it's the song i wanna sing

in the mood i'm trying to break

how's about a budding romance

with the world, do you wanna dance

he said to the world, take a fucking stance

with the world, and get off my back

he said as he twirled, do you wanna dance

do you wanna dance

it's the moves i'm dying to make

my relief i can't escape

what's the use in living alone

in the world, do you wanna dance

let's swirl, it's all a whirl

in the circle, do you wanna dance

just to hurl our bodies into the void

as it unfurls, do you wanna dance

do you wanna dance

do you wanna dance

do you wanna dance

do you wanna dance

do you wanna dance



same ol songs

everything is great and everyone is ok

everyone is sane they keep saying okee dokee

as long as we're hitting this drum

let's get out the whiskey and take a shot worth risking on

if you can build a fire i'll keep singing same ol songs

everything's so grey and we're praying holy moly

isn't it the same as same is same as always

as long as infected the cut abstracts the true desire

i don't have the time to not get fucked up

if only i could start a fire without around it singing same ol songs

everything is clean and everyone is all safe

all the pain arranged, every claim is painstaked

as long as i'm burning my tongue

on every word i say to anybody hanging on

dare to kiss the fire and out of hot lips make just same ol songs

everything has changed except that which arouses me

a history of shame, holding back, and pride being

the place where we all come from

unleashing this thing, the weight of this extraction

if you can snuff the fire i'll put out the same ol songs

everything is great and everyone is ok

there's no glory to be made but i'm feeling good

anyways..



in spain

a card will suffice what a coin once did

the moon takes the place of where your face once could

these wobbling knees are gonna make this man

this warbled mind has only ever feigned it

rise when the others rise

rise as the rain across the plains rolls by

voicing the spark of what you thought you should

out of so many thoughts i hoped you would

armed with chairs and you make it war

without too many i am thankful for

rise when the others rise

rise as the rain across the plains rolls by

you proving true all of my dreams through

is never wasted i'm too naked, too plain, too loose

and to try once more is to forget what before

to get wasted, death tasted, laughing on the floor

rise when the others rise

rise as the rain across the plains rolls by



farce the gimmick

i pretend i'm so blasé

about dying in its way

of imagining myself without a face

for all of time or at least all of space

it's so so-so and passé

but the ecstasy i'm not afraid

that's your divide

your thoughts on change

the land rights you've written to say

who's got the bright, who's got the brave

whose realness is right, who's saving grace

well the boulder's but dressing to they

forced to do as they're made

and the top of the hill only a stop on the way

enlightenment comes without sun nor of shade

it doesn't ask for the time nor permission it won't wait

for me to pretend i'm so blasé

about dying in its way



tall twisted tales take twisted tongues to tell

don't feign surprise clawing out your eyes

i wish you could scream a little louder

careless asshole with your feelings

your soul mate never smiles

those things you break in that just break

are hanging from your neck in a vile

no one's gonna miss you when you're gone

if over's never over

no one's gonna tell you when to stop

once they're all out of danger

ashamed about your own adrenaline rush

no one has told you not to touch

but you've garnered this new love out of an old crush

and i've held my breath just a little too much



winner of most self aware

i love myself and everyone can tell

winner of most self aware

another title i can't sell

you'll lose your memory telling lies

relief so electric the day sky

is so clear you can see the moon

no doubt about my healthy sense of doubt

spinner of style yet to care

of what i'm supposed to share

you'll lose your face reading between the lines

shucking your secrets across the wire

it's chaste, a close shave in your shell

i love myself and everyone can tell

winner of most self aware

acheiving what i can't sell

you'll lose your energy forcing a smile

it's the moon and the starlight

competing for a real reason while

i love myself so everyone can tell

writer extraordinaire

endless is the well

without the bass to haunt ya, and the rhythm to taunt ya

lost in your own sway on the stage

in the swell



less a drink the cool night

less a drink the cool night under the sheets

misting the breeze if you want less a drink the cool night

why awake why computer why mistake why my future

why am i wrestling resting while i wind up sleeping

if you saw what i saw you'd say what i say

and you'd play it off too trying to get through the day

halo weirdo smooth motherfucker

i'll be your dummy, something funny inside the halo



be gods w/ us

there's an envelope with your name on it

it's got money inside

there's a body with your name on it

but it's only got blood on the inside

my time with you is through

i put your name on it

so romance your relief true

dance on that soft spot ya old shoe

and be gods w/ us

i'm too good for this fucking town

and you're too good all around

yet here we are deliberating over the crown

while faced to watch each other drown

be gods w/ us

i feel around in the dark through a constellation

of moles, skin tags, and freckles

and maybe if i'm lucky i'll bump into the night speckled sky,

with star systems and the milky way

to help plot the course through the deep space of decay

be gods w/ us

be gods w/ us

you can't hang yourself on style alone

so come along now we'll make a strong rope

twisting the knife and cranking the knot

it exists to be free, it murders to be

be gods w/ us



widdershins

i wide eyed the many roads

why mountain why

mind i owed as many odes as any reason why

but winding through the minding mode

in any season finds

it's treason to expose the road

to any reason why

i'm excited just knowing you're awake

such deep long silences, i can wait

through whatever dream

i'm senselessly free

i finely mined the halls of ghost

to finally find i'm fine

the mines i poked, the fires i stoked

held all the secret states

the side i spoke a rolling oath

spinning wheels of ink

the lines i wrote were lines of rote

a stately secret wink

i'm excited just knowing you're awake

such deep long silences, i can wait

through whatever dream

i'm senselessly free

faith defined the weary wild wisdom in its place

the exalted fold sold its toll into your time and space

a hybrid worn across the reborn in neither bust nor face

it shied from shorn and empty pores the trend they made was taste

i'm excited just knowing you're awake

such deep long silences, i can wait

through whatever dream

i'm senselessly free



everybody comes to beat sparrows

cut off your head and call it something magic

and in your bed i was reborn as someone static

soon the moon will sway and swoon

the moon the moon will save us soon

i sold my grain and shaved my head something exotic

found the road to your bones enclosed erotic

soon the moon will sway and swoon

the moon the moon will save us soon

reclaimed your head and found the lost messiah

no one believes you when you tell them you are a liar

soon the moon will sway and swoon

the moon the moon will save us soon



going my way?

going my way?

to cross our own bearings

one of these days

i'm going to make a change

a lost and little old man he won't he won't will he

a lost and little old man he can't he can't can he

gone astray

stubborn to make it strange

from pawns in their own game

from strands in the strain

a lost and little old man he won't he won't will he

a lost and little old man he can't he can't can he

with important things to say

and supplanting memories with age

it's locked up and saved

the world becomes the frame

a lost and little old man he won't he won't will he

a lost and little old man he can't he can't can he

sworn to the fringe and frayed

shored against the waves

spoiled to the remains

going my way?



nigh eve

in the sun i'm warm in the dark i'm cold

this robe is unveiling and wasting my fleshed out feeling

my prophetic nation a crystal ball of indignation

i don't wanna sing along to your anthemic hate songs

in the sun i'm born in the dark i'm alone

i wish this morning would pull me back a little more

greasy gods of garden law, goddessliness loves you

there isn't a safe word to get me out of what i choose

believe everyone

who am i among us

in the sun say some i am as one

in my room says you we are as two

what i learn is patience and that smiling is contagious

but i don't wanna smile if you're only trying to save us

believe everyone

who am i among us
