Why don't you cut me in half? Why don't you cut me in half? Why don't you cut me in half? Why don't you cut me in half?

I could lift the seas you see To drown us and our sycophantic company I could raise the dead and I did But now I'm stuck here with their boring stories So i'll take my heart And I'll wring it out Like trans-mastication Or dry masturbation I am chafing off this slough of old abuses I wish that I had more to say with all these muses It seems that righteous fury and gory imagery Don't turn you on But violence was just how I was raised And that's not gonna change I don't think I would change anyway I feel my left arm fade away into the white noise I feel my left arm fade away into the white noise I felt my left arm fade away into the white noise I felt my left arm fade away into the white noise Like righteous fury and gory imagery Don't turn you on Well violence was just how I was raised And that's not gonna change Until the highways that I used to drive Are marked with crosses and names I heard you singing Paris is burning And when I checked the news I saw Notre Dame was burning How the fuck did you do that?

My Attention 02:40
"Get me out of here" She finally spoke "Get me out of here Before these people make me choke" You're no good for me And I'm not so much for you My mind keeps wandering Blacked out from stress and overheat Oh and I wonder— Is the aching in your chest still there? Oh my attention I seem to have lost somewhere Don't you touch me But don't just stare There's too much gravity To be going any where Oh and I wonder— Is the aching in your chest still there? Oh my attention I seem to have lost somewhere

Every night as a child of three I'd hear that woman scream "Please I don't belong in this place" And I could feel that too I do But still she was trapped in that fragile machine Nobody visiting She swore that someday she'd make us all pay And I would swear that too I do When I was young my whole was full of skeletons Who lost their mind some years ago Total entropy forever But I still hear her nightly throes And those gnarled bones But now she's gone and all that's left Are her fucked up screams playing every night In my fucked up dreams
5.
Leave my corpse at Spunkler Keep Where we stacked up rocks and spoke of dreams I think that's where our love is tethered Where new bonds formed and old ones severed I wonder if the water's risen Giving way to underwater citizens I wish that I could breathe in liquid To fill my lungs with bugs and cryptids We've been entangled since the dawn of time Way before God began his designs Every atom was clustered together And we'll be one now and forever But when it's time to leave you be Scatter me at Spunkler Keep Don't be sad, I won't be watching There's nothing left but meat and rotting Scatter me at Spunkler Keep I think that's where our love is tethered Scatter me at Spunkler Keep I wish that I could breathe in liquid Scatter me at Spunkler Keep Every atom was clustered together Scatter me at Spunkler Keep Don't be sad, I won't be watching
6.
Gravity 03:21
Your gravity is bringing me down Your holy place, I burned to the ground This old grudge, it weighs down on me The way it weighs down on you So I've tried something new to end this cycle of abuse To stop your plotting Now my bloodline concludes here because I refuse to Spread this genetic rotting Our technology has far surpassed our biology How can I empathize when my brain is built for a smaller tribe Don't tell me we're not to blame So we watch the lights go out in the sky As the lights go out in our eyes

it's an instrumental there are no words here

I can love much more than you While yours tends to decay But now this strange and blinding light Will lift me far away Which could not have been more apropos Now you can watch these UFOs that take me To places where you could never go Oh the places you could never go The places where you can't go And lately I feel like I've been inside A shotgun state of sunshine A shotgun state of sunshine And baby I have dreamt a thousand times About the way you die About the way you die But from up here you look so small And I feel no hate at all Could it be I'm finally letting go And all it took were UFOs To take me to places where you could never go Oh the places you could never go The places where you can't go Tell me of places you could never go And those are the places where I will go Up above the hum and drone This distant vacuum's now my home I've always feared the passage of time because I never felt like it was really mine Just hoped that UFOs would take me for a ride
9.
Someday you'll be gone Someday you'll like shadows lost in the dark Someday not so far I'll trace your outlines in the lids of my eyes Where you were forgotten Where you were forgotten What have I done to your face? Have I forgot it?
