Choking on the birds of paradise Taste all the colors by design Big feast before your eyes Is just a crow glorified They’ll flip and roll Lose control Shape shift until your gaze is fixed Mesmerize the little mice Pull off the disguise And hold my gloves Choking on the birds of paradise Calm eyes hide a wolf appetite This treat you can't repeat Throw your bones off to the side They’ll flip and roll Lose control Shapeshift until your gaze is fixed Mesmerize the little mice Pull off the disguise And hold my gloves

Game 03:55
Admire it Hold out your sticky hands Now starve it We’re laughing all the way The child in us waits for nothing This isnt a cryptic game Then it spread like novocaine Well darlin You play the host so well I'm beginning To think its in your bones You're losing The parts that make you full By choking Down and down and down What they’re selling Is violent This isnt a cryptic game

Lunchbox 04:29
From your mouth it comes Like a shotgun Positive ID Eyes read 1 + 1 is 3 Sharpen all your words Throw them in a stockpile Is it power you adore, Or is it love you are after? From your mouth it comes Like a shotgun Heavy tongues lay deep And I go lookin for a viper Tremble on my knees And shudder at the backbone Is it power you adore, Or is it love you are after?

Violets 02:39
I turn the corner firing on reason Head on the two of us collide My gentle heart battling the season And I'm left wondering why Dive in or do I admire it? Open or hide under the covering? Tired of quiet or bite it My mouth is open wide Gentle hearts change like the season And I'm left wondering why Dive in or do I admire it? And I'm left wondering why Open or hide under the covering? And I'm left wondering why I'll tell you how I cheated the divine I'm simply not cut for this design You sure know how to pour it in the wounds Salty tongues will batter it right outta you And I see you got potential Salty tongues will batter it right outta you And I see you got potential Salty tongues will batter it right outta you Of love and of the divine Dive in or do I admire it? And I see you got potential Open or hide under the covering? Of love and of the divine Dive in or do I admire it? And I see you got potential Open or hide under the covering Of love and of the divine And I see you got potential Of love and of the divine!

Out now end of days Tell me what you're living for Hideout secret feedings Suckin on your pinafore Drag it out in the open Your mouth is on display Light up into nothing Time to eradicate They flooded through the door Into a dozen lines I trace their uniforms Burn it into mind Spread on every face A daring badge of pride How you gonna fight A feather with a knife How you gonna fight A feather with a knife I need it before I ignite

See you all spinning gold From your ivory tower The loudest and biggest The loudest and biggest How do you know what I need When you don’t live the life I lead? The loudest and biggest The loudest and biggest Give me something I can hold A modicum of truth in gold Terror is the only plan Peeking through your fetal lense How can I lock in With two dead ends behind your eyes? The loudest and biggest The loudest and biggest You, you hold, your tongue It’s all in vain You, you fold, you love It’s all in vain You, you hold, your tongue It’s all in vain You, you fold, you love It’s all in vain

Rails 04:04
I open my early eyes Rubbing the colors out of line I’ve been keeping behind the wheel But Mama I’m screaming off the rails You keep me hanging on (off the rails) You keep me hanging on (off the rails) Oh Mama do I got the courage Oh Mama do I got the courage Oh Mama do I got the courage Oh Mama do I got the courage I’m terrified Oh Mama do I got the courage of what’s inside You keep me hanging on (of what’s inside) You keep me hanging on (of what’s inside) You keep me hanging on You keep me hanging on
