Track Name: Moments of Love
I want to die all kinds of deaths to see what he meant
about how life gets better when you're the face stamped on to the front of the cent
let my name be remembered for exactly all that it was
positive or negative connotations
but mainly the moments of love

Good things last forever unless
everyone forgets about them
it is time to travel for the mess
through lies and carpe diem

Peeling a clementine is all you need
and all you'll ever be
sit on the tap and whine why your water's cold
sure is explaining something to me
she's gotta die before she can live
overwintering dormancy
Track Name: Sand Dunes
How could you play to sand dunes
and pretend that to work
wasn't catching your thoughts
making you desert truth
separating the moods that are labor and love
how could you forget privilege
do you believe there's no plot
how could you forget privilege

no, low, how could I think?

I don't think to love you
i remember that you don't have water at all
making you forgive truth
set priorities straight by resetting the bar
how could you demand innocence
I don't know who this is but whoever you are
how could you forget privilege
do you believe there's no plot?

No, low, how could i think?
Track Name: Potential
Why don't you relay
the good word to me
a tangeble phase
on every given day
i'll store up all my solvents
crystaline sure did
i cocked it

I could never lie
confronting broken rhymes
I'm always wrong

I can't stop you
an hour ago an hour
a lofty presence
becomes the the unknown
becomes the unlawful heavens
begins to unroll
begins to unroll

why don't you decay
and fall off the bone
my marvelous loved one
on any living day
I'l store up all
my memories
alcohol sure did
I hacked it

cause I could never lie
confronting suits an ties
I'm never wrong

I can't stop you
an hour ago an hour
a lofty presence
becomes the the unknown
becomes the unlawful heavens
begins to unroll
begins to unroll

Most just cease to lay down cards and override all stories.
Please retain those mind-made fables. Time and time, time again.
Track Name: Legacy
my legacy softly
scratches the air
who's being compared

its been years since the poet or the prayer
made anyone stand
so we think we can't
just pay the rent.

I was conceived dates
before and after the clause
they wrote in the sand

Throw me in the forge
I will wear all black
but it doesn't take guns
to make us feel strapped

make us feel strapped

Sporadic replacement of the walls
Emphatic, to me, am I involved?
Not at all, just elders in the yard.
The practice of waiting is oblong.
