Track Name: Done Talking
"Done Talking"

One final request
For all the voices we ignore
Give our regards on their behalf
The gods have smiled on you today
Or at least you thinking they have
But in the cold Milwaukee nights
Something is rising off the shore
Crawling out from underneath the bridge
Slipping through the streets
Your abuses are our energy and tonight we feast

Dear Mr. Governor
We know you meant no harm
But every time you were wrong

You made great plans
That took us to the darkest places
And you vowed your mission unrelenting
Even your constituents
But assembly will always be real
Even your constituents were tired
Their position compromised
Assembly will always be real

But I’ve always thought of myself as a privileged motherfucker
Oh cold hands we’ll be warm again
And to defend
Would be the greatest gift of all
For the end be it all

The gods have smiled on you today
And just maybe the have
But tomorrow’s coming swiftly
You will be held accountable
The tide will change
Our minds so powerful will meet
Your abuses are our energy
And we will suffocate the beast

But I’ve always thought of myself as a privileged motherfucker
Oh cold hands we’ll be warm again
And to defend
Would be the greatest gift of all
For the end be it all
Track Name: Give Me a Hand
“Give Me A Hand”

Blaze! Failing to move through the Fire
Those who blazed the trails before would never believe
Never, an uninspired generation have squandered the torch
Surrender to zealots and missionaries
Our Mission is dead

I can’t see a poetic ending
And my arms are breaking
I can’t see the spigot in my hand

Amazed! Watching afar from a barstool
As teatols live the dreams we forged
Our lives desolate
Buried. Our mouths wired shut with threads of ambivalence

I can’t see
And my arms are breaking
I can’t see the spigot in my hand

The greatest lies bring hope
The bravest sons go dark

The festering body.
Swollen and bulbous.
The Beast is calling and I can’t hide forever
The rest of the offerings
Fall short of the marking
Face now the mouth that you’ve avoided.
Track Name: Oubliette
“Oubliette”

With substances failing worn out
Pay up
Bare chested beings, make no illusions this is your life
Failure after failure
Light the fuse, cut the cord, dream

Here’s to the best days of your punishment

But up in the tower
Ringing the Bells
For all you banal minded dimwits
Awake again
Adrenalin
Is the greatest moment for some
The damage in me proves I’m capable of something
A tragic contraption. A magnet of maggots

Low cognition keeps you distant. Keeps you hollow, unthreatening
Track Name: Trouble in the Engine Room
“Trouble in the Engine Room”

With bated breath and a lousy disposition
We cling to anything resembling a solution
Our hopes hanging on a fabricated premise
So desperate to believe

And for what
Its fucking useless
And for what
Its fucking worse

I built a bomb only to dismantle it
But I built another one and I felt it go off
When I emerged with burns and scars
We were finally free

When we thought we’d never see the day
Without a chance in hell
We made it possible again
I will dust myself off
And we will ride at dawn again

I found the engine room
Tucked at the end of a hallway
Away from all the noise
I stumbled outside into the alley
I was in pursuit of something I couldn’t remember
There was a hammer leaning against a dumpster
So I picked it up.
I found the engine room.
I tore it down.

When I emerged with burns and scars
We were finally free

When we thought we’d never see the day
Without a chance in hell
We made it possible again
I will dust myself off
And we will ride at dawn again
Track Name: Black Earth
“Black Earth”

When all is done
We’ll commemorate you.
It was a sound device, although brutally unkind
And when we couldn’t take anymore
You took us for miles
But the clouds are getting closer
All the way to Black Earth
And the clouds are getting closer
And you’re running out of time.

Its nothing we didn’t plan for
It’s our tenacious nature
What makes us great is in the moments
It’s not the mellow drama
It’s not the failed approach
What brings us down is the hubris

The subtle aches, The mental breaks
It all adds up for goodness sake
Disaster years that you make
The cryptic signs become your fate
This place you know so well
In his image you built this hell
The empty spaces that you fill
A frightened child that you kill

Are we getting warmer?
Or did these places come to haunt you in life
And when we need you the most
You cast us aside

Four chances to get things right
Three times the failing kind
Twice now we sold our lies
One hero who had to died

Its nothing we didn’t plan for
It’s our tenacious nature
What makes us great is in the moments
It’s not the melodrama
It’s not the failed approach
What brings us down is the hubris
Track Name: The Other Hand
“the Other Hand”

You drained your blood into the boundary waters
With pioneers and natives
A thousand people who no one ever knew
Red White and Blue in the closest quarters
After the flags were burned
After the cocktails proved too strong
What will become of you then
Another asshole with a pamphlet

A wasted life, a broken gift, a pile of shit
Is what was given to you
But shockingly, you don’t feel much better now
The battle broke the man

Built your life on a bullshit stance and now you’re trapped with it

Why wouldn’t you show me the other hand
And I could rest on slower thoughts

Like a foreign appendage let in like an intruder
You are so different now
You are so different now

We never bother
We cant be bothered
The boldest never answer
The baddest always win

Why wouldn’t you show me the other hand
And I could rest on slower thoughts

Like a foreign appendage let in like an intruder
You are so different now
Track Name: Anarchy in the MKE
“Anarchy in the MKE”

We thought you were going to be okay
Things were looking good
When I think of you in that Wisconsin Hotel
Alone

Your anchor dangling into nothing
Your oars swallowed into the ocean deep
The shaking the anxiety the memories
Finally left you alone
You bled

For years of shame
You bled
The circumstance
You bled

We let you down
The circumstance

How you were turned to the darkness
It just never seemed quite right
Won’t let it show, but I can’t let it go
I’ve found an enemy not in the open
It took you down

Stop them, The thoughts the brought you
Stop them, we lost you
Stop them the thoughts that took you down
We lost you.
Track Name: Negative Coping Skills
“Negative Coping Skills”

Disobeying the rumbling of your stomach
And how may times will you throw it in public
Until your numb as fuck
Until your bloodshot eyes bleed out

Searching for that magical feeling
Sweaty palms
Your insides are bleeding
Hanging by the horns
Searching for that mythical figure
Brittle bones, burning throats
Seeing something bigger

When its you against the bull
Stay alive
It's you against the bull

The fight becomes it all
This is not a phase, this is not in shape
This is your life
Track Name: Sad Riffs and Vicodin
“Sad Riffs and Vicodin”

You knew the motives
When you heard the water running
Don’t let these blue lungs fool you

With every breath
Aquatic Death
But you weren’t invited to my permanent pool party

This was not your fault
I started suffocating long ago
When the temperature’s just right and the water’s just so
Please forgive me my friends
Sad riffs and Vicodins just go so well.

A couple of blue pills
Sinking now to the depths
A couple of Belgians
The water now reaching my legs
I’ve had my last liquid lunch
But come on baby, everybody likes a dip…

You knew the motives
When you heard the water running
Don’t let these blue lungs fool you

With every breath
Aquatic Death
But you weren’t invited to my permanent pool party


When the blue turns to black
This is the last time we’ll ever be alone
