DAYDREAM 05:13
collapse the fear into something i can hold and place beside me, and turn away from there is a crackle of ozone in the air damaged components distance STATIC CONSTANT DECAY SPLIT FAR AWAY somewhere, there's a space where this is just a daydream i don't want to go there alone anymore my vision peels away from reference and time the corners of this space are bent and bright i've never known the lucidity to stay with me i can't break through STATIC CONSTANT DECAY SPLIT FAR AWAY somewhere, there's a space where this is just a daydream i don't want to go there alone anymore tethered, reeling out, reality feels so distant i can't hold on to anything but you're here with me somewhere, there's a space where this is just a daydream i don't want to go there alone anymore tethered, reeling out, reality feels so distant i can't hold on to anything but you're here with me.

VOLTAIC 03:58
wires, blood, conductive live enough to function the warmth of the light in this moment over-exposed, iridescent TEAR ALL THE SKIN AWAY PULL ALL THE STATIC OUT WRAP US IN LAMBENT NOISE I WANNA FEEL THIS MOMENT FLOWING UP MY THROAT reflective chrome through the patchwork bizmuth nails dig as close to whole as we can get saturated soul convulsing child, crone, survival death TEAR ALL THE SKIN AWAY PULL ALL THE STATIC OUT WRAP US IN LAMBENT NOISE I WANNA FEEL THIS MOMENT FLOWING UP MY THROAT too much input just how i want it torn to fragments with you ♡

i know a place beyond the lines of this world a different light falls on the fragments of your mind the light hit the mountain door is open and deep inside the hand of a demon plays with my mind i step into the warmth and i'm not coming back that place will take me and destroy all that i am the vigilance and anxiety collapse silhouette of my body into sand i cannot feel the dread of memory when i'm there barely real the lightest touch through my hair a home for the vespers a place where we both can hide we’ll stay here forever now that it’s mine i step into the warmth and i'm not coming back that place will take me and destroy all that i am the vigilance and anxiety collapse silhouette of my body into sand (i don't understand the cruel light of this place...) i step into the warmth and i'm not coming back that place will take me and destroy all that i am the vigilance and anxiety collapse silhouette of my body into sand

YEARWOUNDS 04:48
she held her breath, thought catalyzed the panic incandescent death hiding just beneath the epidermis "oh not again," she thought - she'd told them she was just like them and for a decade, she was there is a desperation in the irises of her eyes the marks from all the years that terror kept her whole she learns the movements and she doesn't bat an eye when they break all her brittle bones anymore THIS IS ALL I HAVE TO BE obscure the fractured self with practiced legitimacy WHEN IT KILLS ME i won't mind; there will be no difference on the inside she got away, too burnt to feel the damage months into days, and the fear she felt at those around her never the same, she thought - empathy blurred into something more than she could take so she ran there is a desperation in the irises of her eyes the marks from all the years that terror kept her whole she learns the movements and she doesn't bat an eye when they break all her brittle bones anymore THIS IS ALL I HAVE TO BE mutilate the soul under the lie of cold necessity WHEN IT KILLS ME i won't mind; there will be no difference on the inside it hasn't changed, the terror hasn't gone away but when she's safe for a moment, she knows she peels away a tiny piece of all the noise she's built up to survive and it's so... THIS IS ALL I WANT TO BE lost between the years, the static swallowed all belief in safety I CAN'T TELL if i'm alive but something feels different on the inside ✰

you told me, i see you rise but it always falls i see them come, i see them go you said "all things pass into the night" and i say "oh no sir, I must say you're wrong i must disagree, oh no sir, i must say you're wrong" won't you listen to me you told me, i've seen it all before i've been there, i've seen my hopes and dreams lying on the ground i've seen the sky just begin to fall and you said, "all things pass into the night" and i say, "oh no sir, i must say you're wrong i must disagree, oh no sir, i must say you're wrong" won't you listen to me won't you listen to me goodbye horses I'm flying over you.

LOVER'S LANE 03:40
i ran with the leaves paving the ground blood slick on my hands, and only the sound of hurried feet and rustling trees closing in around me you get what you want it's coming to you get what you want you get what you want it's coming to you get what you want soon you brought me around to your side smile like radiant sun, and eyes like ice look for me to become a candid date for your special games you get what you want it's coming to you get what you want you get what you want it's coming to you get what you want soon out here, just you and i you make your move, and my reply ice shatters in fading eyes a total surprise a total surprise

WIRES+BLOOD 04:16
sleep and dissolve into forgetting hold all the pieces carefully apart there isn't anything outside the terror there is no comfort in the morning air i'm safe here, i know but i can't make the feeling go there is a capsule deep inside that's breaking in the clear lucidity, a cloud of red hold the pressure needed to contain it the overwhelming dullness of dread there is a feeling like i don't belong here that's followed me as long as i can tell i had a dream i left this place forever relief consuming me as i fell.

NATURE GIRL 05:54
the voltage in my blood and in my skin crackles and erodes clouded reticence the pressure in my skull makes it hard to think but i won't let tonight become where i've been if i could keep my memories away from the dread and anxiety (who would i be?) i want to live, i want to feel i'm tired of feeling unreal (i'm more than this) i want to stay, but i'm afraid i don't want the safety to go away (but anyway) i am alive i'm here tonight the movement in my chest, i can't explain a frequency like death without any pain my skin is held intact by the lightest wind is this what it's like to be alive again? if i could stay a certain way, if i could feel every day (i'd fall apart) if i could have a different life, could i look myself in the eye? (would i know why?) i want to stay, but i'm afraid i don't want the safety to go away (but anyway) i close my eyes and dream of light.

and after everything, i know why i was scared to death it's still inside me now, but i know its name and it doesn't have to be the only thing in my head i guess i'm pretty fucked up, i guess i'm pretty far gone i feel scared and weak but you're here with me~ someday, together we'll shine and when i sleep i still dream that the fear and pain will be there forever but i hold on to this quiet fantasy and someday soon we'll be together someday, together we'll shine someday...
