Home 02:51
From the safety of my home I’m awake too much and make too little Stare sedately at my phone Little worlds I cultivate transmittal Small parades of endless droll I can take so much but say so little Don’t forsake me in my own Little church of lust and noncommittal Come regale me with your song From the perch illustrious lives you’re living Complicate me with my own Sense of worth of class that I’ve been given Congregate me to my own In the mirth of lust our minds unravel Celebrate me when I’m gone In the dirt and rust and limestone gravel

Effigy 03:49
Never said I’m smarter Think I’ve gone crazy It’s a little harder To pick up on maybe Never did hold water We’re just so hated It’s a two bit parlor We’re just so jaded Why’s it even gotta be like that Where we bask in the gaslight How we ever gonna sleep at night When we dance in the moonlight I don’t even wanna be like that But I can’t see the sunlight Now that one and one is three Never said I’m smarter Think I’ve gone crazy It’s a non starter To just say maybe We don’t need a martyr We don’t need saviors We just need some honesty Back in our cadence Why’s it even gotta be like that Where we bask in the gaslight How we ever gonna sleep at night When we dance in the moonlight I don’t even wanna be like that But I can’t see the sunlight Are we ever gonna veer on track Or just drift in the hindsight

Long Way Out 03:24
Maybe your phone was out of service maybe you just don’t wanna burden me with the word Maybe the phone call made you nervous Although a text may be preferred it needs to be heard Long way out for now Maybe your best life has to flourish To need me around Long way out for now Maybe the next time have the courage to leave me Maybe the love gods have deserted Even if Venus sings the verses relieve me the curse Maybe the love gods don’t deserve us Maybe the angels have a service fee We observe Long way out for now Maybe the sex gods have a purpose to keep me around Long way out for now Maybe the next time have the courage to leave me Long way out for now Nevertheless I ask for certain You lead me around Long way out for now Maybe the next time have the courage to leave me I’m on the road to South Dakota You wanna know what you don’t know but believe me you don’t.

Inside Out 03:10
Inside Outside Any side outside of homicide I don't want us inside out again Assume any way I get out is by design Assume any day I went out of town is fine Assume anyway, now we're out of time

He’s on a snow train with a mirror track He’s all alone stay a severe attack She’s on an airplane with a paperback She went her own way, never dare look back She writes to him from miles away Says some things she should not say Pretends to be better off Sometimes life isn’t pleasant But we’re nice in the present At times love really weathers Just like ice in the desert He’s in his own lane It’s a miracle that But he’s still a long way From a fear of death It’ll be Monday for she hears bout that He was the one she never really left See sights of them with smiles someday In a picture file somewhere Delete delete and they’re lost Sometimes life isn’t pleasant But we’re nice in the present At times life really weathers Just like ice in the desert

Above our heads appears a shattered apparition The shards congeal into a ship shaped like a lemon Out steps a genderless hominid dressed in linen With seven eyes and six mouths that speak in unison Greeting to all of you kind hearted men and women We’re here to right your wrongs; time travel has been invented But unfortunately we can’t all agree what sin is Instead we crucify the messenger as menace It’s all so glorious In ancient history there was a sovereign village Impaired with poverty; their alms raised to the privileged The royal nobility had only want of pillage And use the young in wars to settle petty skirmishes A little girl unlocked a genie from a skillet I’m from an olden time and now I’ve paid my penance I’ll grant the world eternal peace if you just will it So naturally they apprehend the djinn and kill it It’s all so glorious So pour the blood until your cups have over filleth And toast the olden gods like Astaroth and Lilith And drink to all the fiends and all the fallen villains Who sold us magic beans and left with all our innocence

The Weekend 03:40
The weekend rolls me over So we get high for hours Sweet pen holds me over 'til we get home for flower Anomaly novelty of an enormous normalcy is normally… aesthetic Paranormal with a formal notary is morally … synthetic Had a moment I no longer wanna see Control delete …. forget it I’m a ronin in a loner sorta way

You gotta know your right You gotta know your rights You gotta say a prayer ? ? ??? ??? ????

Emotion slowly Erodes your mind It’s all that haunts me Alone in time It’s been 10 years since I smoked my last cigarette I quit that and you somewhere around about the same time So fleeting memories of you and me I guess are all I get For me to constantly just Reinvent the sentimental

Dark Matter 03:20
Wild eyed lovers Hover into the sun On fire we smother Spiral of color spun Our minds unravel More we Time travel home We fly each other Blindly into unknown At worst I know At best i don’t It works right now The less I know Inertia at rest I float Cold dark matter Particles shatter off Our souls might scatter Like spinning platters fall Halos don’t matter No we’re not better off I mind my manners Then I see the pattern evolve At worst I know At best i don’t It works right now The less I know Inertia at rest I float Inertia at best I float

Simpatico 04:11
I couldn’t tell you what to type Begin and autofill I couldn’t tell you not to hide within Your hollow self We could’ve felt this moment Who’d a known it’d only pass Better not open that You’ll wanna see Better off hoping that It oughta be Better unspoken that You wanted me Better off holding back She’s simpatico Once she’s had her aderol Must be why we’re so compatible Once she's on sabbatical From her mind She couldn’t melt my glassy eyes Begin the waterfall I couldn’t let this moment pass Again I wanna know Has she not felt the tone that Teary eyed atonement has Better not open that You’ll wanna see Better off hoping that an honesty Better unspoken that You wanted me Better off hoping that You WANTED me Sad at home hoping that You WANTED me Spinning on broken glass

Tunnel view And the rhythm and pulse of the lines In the headlights on your left Reels to me Like a flurry of snow in the light Mesmerized your mind undressed And you see other cars As we see other worlds As they beam into ours And they stream into yours They don’t seem very far The cars ahead of you are coming into view And they’re summoning for you To speed to me The signs are telling you that Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear to be Pale moon A millennia more you’ll arrive In a time your mind dismissed Still you’ll be Interstellar afloat in the sky In your mind this might exist In a stream of facade In a dream in a blur They don’t seem as they are They don’t seem as they were These unseen stellar gods Are just caricature As we scream and applaud The cars ahead of you are coming into view And they’re summoning for you To speed to me The signs are telling you that Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear to be The stars above you are plummeting to you And they’re summoning for you To speed to me Hindsight is telling you that Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear Come closer and they appear

You refuse to believe What you hear and you see And you choose to ignore All the news you abhor But these memes on 8chan from anonymous handles They’ve got it all figured out Yeah right Coz they’re seeing right through What your told not to do And they say to ignore All that happened before And admitting you’re wrong Never has to be done Coz you’ve got it all figured out They lead ya They bleed ya Then they leave ya But you’ve got it all figured out Yeah right We’re already done for It already happened before Asume we're gone But it has to be done Coz you already know they lie

about

Through a global pandemic was wrought two albums, separate entities married by the irreconcilable bullshit of existential dread, societal disfunction, and social isolation. Flouting norms - as the band is often wont to do - both records are being released simultaneously.
