Track Name: Quarter Centurion
softly speaking out of turn
it's probably me, it's probably her
i'm leaving now, all this hurt
i'd probably rather experience murder

a quarter centurion's won
a quarter century ain't fun
when you live in this stark place
where leeches will pierce your breastplate
and take what remains

oooooohhhhh
Track Name: Fear Of Water
i cannot tell whether you're the right way home
or if you're just a side road
and i will not know until i approach that signpost
but i will find my way home
taken into a wave i cannot ride
without that fear of water on my mind
it breaks on me just like the riptide
at least something knows i'm alive

as long as you weren't scared
i long for you
you're too fair, it's unfair
chasing faces, buying bracelets
oh, we breathe air, it's unfair

i'm passing through walls like i'm a poltergeist
disguising my voice just to lie
i'll break my bread and i will find my device
and fill my cup with more time

as long as you weren't scared
i long for you
you're too fair, it's unfair
passing judgment, standing, hovering
oh we need air, it's unfair
as long as you weren't scared
i long for you
you're too fair, it's unfair
Track Name: Cargo
(sorry buddy, were you recording?)

taken to task for no reasons why
you're asking me to lie
a booked airplane and cargo that can't decide
when it's alright to die

we're not poets, we're just along for the ride
we're not suspects, we were just on his side
we are not dead, we will be just fine

we are the people that you cannot see
breaking bad habits invisibly
the times they change, and so do we, we breathe
anything we can buy with our currency

not in public, we don't shout our names
changing something does not mean free reign
over what you've been wanting to slay
she's so young, she's delirious
what can i say?
Track Name: Bear Arms
looks like it's time for waiting again
i can't rhyme my words like back then
it is only a matter of when
all the things that you just can't comprehend

i'm watching my time but it's only a second
i would not lie but you wouldn't bet against it
we're taking our time, too much and i'll regret it
move along to the side, there's always the guest list

the mint and charms, they look like real stems
i'll bear arms, i'll be like real men
throwing all of their judgments to a gem
it is hard to let go of them

i'm watching my time but it's only a minute
it's not that i lie, it's just that i'm in it
we're taking our time, i hope you don't regret it
move along to the side, i hope you're on the guest list
Track Name: Vellepeezies
i haven't seen you in days
and those days have been
working their way down that sandy bank
you're lifting your claws to scratch and sniff
that curious ticket
and you will win, the fix is in

you won't be gone for too long, will you?
you won't leave long stories behind you
well, i hope you return. we'll see
hoping has not been working out for me

working for money, not the job that you take pride in
oh god, that breeze, so calmly it meets me
i'll never look back to voids and blurs
the stuff that makes hearts burst
we say it again and again but we're never free

you won't be gone for too long, will you?
you won't leave long stories behind you
well i hope you return. we'll see
seeing has not been working out for me

hoping has not been working out for me
