Track Name: This Glacial Pace
Heavy focused eyes
hidden inside
signals from satellites.
We slip blinking by
shouldering high
the weight of several lives.

We all fall in line
as we decide
that which we must sacrifice.
We appreciate
that we’ll never find
the happenstance keeping us alive.

Let’s fold back the ceiling
to let this sun inside
shed some light on sick shapes in the shadows
If we lose all feeling
Oh honey I don’t mind
a little numbness will be the least of our troubles

We were understated
to a fault
to a fault
this glacial pace is not enough

It gets easier to say that I’m alright.
It gets easier to say that I’m just fine.
It gets easier.
Track Name: Hard To Say
Fold it into thirds
This blank piece of paper.
You take the head.
I’ll take the legs.
We’ll meet in the middle.

Outside there’s criminals.
Unsavory characters to bother us.
We thicken our skin
Loosen our legs
And sharpen up our callus ways.

On these
Heavy notes
I’ll hang my
arsenal of
detachable quotes

It’s hard to say anything anymore
It’s hard to say anything anymore
It’s hard to say
(a long way from...)
It’s hard to say
(...getting me started)
It’s hard to say
(a long way from...)
It’s hard to say
(...getting it started)

You bring the numbers over,
I’ll add them up.
You paint our favorite colors.
Start at the top.
I couldn't help but notice
you’ve had enough.
All our intentions focused
Into this love.
It’s not that tough.
