1.
these days I can’t help but go out of my mind they say if you see something, say something right it’s not black and white and all the ones at the top look down and not up these days we take what we get history screams, our ears are still wet mind how the axe swings there’s no fault to be found; look up and not down we can’t shrug the all seeing eyes are mirror-blind and the glass has no real silver lining mind all recognize for the old will die while the young will live on
2.
mystery why we are bleeding, right no shards from the glass ceiling, right backslide, hold tight mystery why we are bleeding, right no scars in a half visible fight backslide, hold tight what would the Mothers say “For shame”
3.
Rope's End 01:46
they won’t give any that ain’t it, fact is if they don’t give they’re winning they don’t try anymore that ain’t it, fact is that they don’t have a thing to give i don’t understand, don’t get it, get it dragging us at rope’s end we fray, bit by bit
4.
Dead Seas 03:10
no trees, no people, dead seas, no people nobody likes humanity anymore who would? they throw their hands up and walk away! what seems costly now will be priceless then no trees, no people, dead skies, no people failed brakes, watch the crisis roll on. modern problems lie and if you’re keeping on then know it’s as criminal as can be the ancient know, the old don’t see what seems costly now will be priceless then no trees, no people, dead seas, no people no one likes humans anymore can’t back down now and if you’re keeping on then know it’s as criminal as can be the ancient know, the old don’t see things fall apart, be ready
5.
the triumph of one does not negate the misery of the many the power of one is remade by the violence of the many remind me why I live my life, again the wealth of one does not relate to the hope of the many the sorrow of one is remade with the love of the many remind me why I live my life, again
6.
tiny lights cast across the sides of our minds winking in, winking out dead before we ever saw them pale blue dot tiny lights tossed along the lines in our hands winking in, winking out dead before we ever saw them pale blue dot
7.
Rising High 02:00
keep on building the Fatherland burn it back as best we can flames rising high greenbacks blinding the morally dead torch it all to black and red flames rising high
8.
The Big Swim 01:56
drowning in a sea of white noise, in the big swim a hundred years go by, is anyone satisfied? stay home if you like, I couldn’t if I tried a collar buttoned high, a buckle cinched too tight a twinkle in the eye, a brick in the gut right by right what we breathe, and for what do we fight? drowning in the big swim white men lock up your sons, they’re not safe for anyone march around the place acting like they own it turn a century on a dime, it’s hardly any time normal’s not in line, majority wasted outright — by right what we breathe, and for what do we fight? drowning in a sea of white noise, in the big swim right by right what we breathe, and for what do we fight?
