Track Name: Page Torn Down The Middle
Running on empty
Disguise wouldn’t work
Do they know I’m an impostor yet?
I’m starting to run out of words

Futures not worth saving
I’m not ready in time
Signature on a testament
A suicide Sunday trial

And I’ll quit trying
Because I’m built just like a machine

I’m picking up the pieces
A car crash inside of my brain
Tattoo says don’t resuscitate
They’re doing it anyway

Pictures not worth saving
Macro eye zooming in
Close up on a thousand yard stare
Avoid staring back into oblivion

And I’ll quit trying
Because I’m built just like a machine

And it came and went
Like the seasons change
Or a page that
I tore down the middle

And it came and went
Just like the seasons change
Or a page that
I tore down the middle

Like a page that I tore down the middle
Track Name: Giving Up
I thought I was awake, I suddenly woke up
From chasing memories around a mercury desert
Lifelong aspirations fading into the background
A 747 crashes into my heart

I’m giving up

She’s stepping down the staircase and her legs are on backwards
I wanna run away, though I know that I shouldn’t
Unfamiliar objects spin around this apartment
Did you call 911?

I’m giving up
Track Name: The Camelot
I live full-time
Here at The Camelot
It’s been six months, and this
Part-time clerk isn’t taking any longer

I’ll die right here
Here at The Camelot
And it ain’t much,
But it’s my home

I live full-time
Here at The Camelot
Sixteen months, and there’s
A knock-knock-knock-knocking at the door now

I’ll die right here
Here at The Camelot
It ain’t much,
It’s my home

It’s my love
It’s my tomb
Track Name: Nuclear Horizon
Spineless in the grass in the green technicolor
The shadows of our principles our peers and our mothers
A broken solar panel leans against a rusted pole
And Highland’s outdoor playing field felt as big as the world

Now it’s all ash, peppered with black rubber
Remnants of authorities our coaches and mothers

It’s a nuclear horizon
It’s a nuclear horizon
It’s a nuclear horizon
It’s a nuclear horizon

A harrowing subject captured on a black and white photo
A nuclear horizon in the skyline of Dakota
From Minneapolis to Exton Pennsylvania
Swallowed by the cancer in a zero-sum equation

Technicolor grass that silhouetted our fingers
Still belongs to our preachers and our parents and teachers

It’s a nuclear horizon
It’s a nuclear horizon
It’s a nuclear horizon
It’s a nuclear horizon

October’s amber skies
Clouds of expanding dust
Nature’s compromise for having to many of us
It’s a nuclear horizon and the world is spinning out of control

I saw a window
I saw a street sign
I saw the neofascists do the pantomime
And the more I think about it, the less and less it makes sense

Jesus
His laser sinners
Shot a nuclear missile from the regime
And the more I think about it, the less and less it makes sense
