Track Name: Choke
a breakdown in defense
so perfect it’s sublime
intellect has wrought this
flaw in intelligent design

if i try i’m able
but the walls they close right in
blood rushes to the temple
overtaking till it wins

just give me the will
to overtake this
just give me the will
to learn to forget

to learn to forget

a near constant hunger
echoes its frightening cry
as the walls they close right in
leaving nothing left inside

just give me the will
to overtake this
just give me the will
to learn to forget
Track Name: Future Echoes
the ice of a winter distant
is what defines me
my view narrows like a strait
and i tell myself that this can’t be

i don’t want to lose you
before i lose you

the fear of a day yet to come
is all that drives me
my head’s in the ground and the clouds,
i can’t be hurt by what i can’t see

i don’t want to lose you
before i lose you

i will not mourn

i don’t want to lose you
before i lose you
Track Name: The Last Terrible Surprise
you own me
at least for the rest of my life
i will never have children
or ever have a wife

i’ve been set up to fail
money money money money

i will always be within an arm’s reach

i’ve been set up to fail
money money money money

i’ve been set up to fail
Track Name: Inertia
you’ll never understand
the message i’m trying to convey
and the passing of all of this time
is just proving that you can’t change
you are not like me
you can’t understand

your little coke habit was so adorable
oh little rebel, how’d you grow up so fast?

we could’ve spun the world upside down
we could’ve gone anywhere

you can’t understand
Track Name: Ég Kem Aftur
a glimpse is enough to make me paralyzed
stuck inside these memories that i cannot pass by
i can see in my hand the future that is to be
staring me down with intent anyone can see

i must find the discipline to wait
stationary while counting the hours away

i will return
i will return to stay

ég kem aftur

these frozen images render me paralyzed
stuck inside these moments, i realize

i must be patient for just the right time
it won’t be long till what i want is mine

i will return
i will return to stay
It is where i belong

i can see it so clearly

ég kem aftur
Track Name: June Gloom
an emptiness persists
at its earliest chance
june gloom unveils itself
always so far in advance

with every single hair
i can count the missteps

how long can i sustain
that which is slowly killing me
how long can i sustain
a life catching up so quickly

but i can pretend
and i will pretend
but as i pretend
it becomes so clear

with every single hair
i can count the missteps

i can accept
i can accept
but only
because of you
because of you
