Lyrics by Alex Kerns I see it, I want it, I get it, I have it I lose it I have become the true obstacle conquerer Another bad year, same fire, different disaster I fell asleep on a cot at the restaurant One step forward, two steps sideways I was a man without a center I only had edges between me really Yesterday is so elastic with expectations so fantastic I wasted time on recreational hate One step forward, two steps sideways I wasted time on recreational hate I wasted time on hollow fame Sitting around awaiting praise One step forward, two steps sideways

Neon Prison 03:42
Lyrics by Alex Kerns A hand supported face Every summer leaves a new constellation On your shoulder, you're getting older Formidable, a habit of clay I was the candle that flickered light I grin and I swallow the blaze So you don't have to model in a neon prison A hand supported face Its a pedestal until it tips and breaks Everybody knows all your curses You never put them away A habit of clay

Lyrics by Alex Kerns I hear theirs a heatwave in the valley of oblivion Theirs a lot of noise The last of my bloodline I'm hanging there with innocence I'm the first leaf on the tree Standing between two mirrors The frames continue endlessly I want you here with me in every frame Even in those too distant see I'm the first leaf on the tree We stay home a lot tracing each others shadows You can count on math but right now there is only one I'm the first leaf on the tree

Lyrics by Alex Kerns Inside my head and even before we had met I knew I wanted to be yours Even though I can’t say that I know anything ‘bout you but I know I know I knew I wanted to be yours Caught you up by the stage See my purposeful place But everybody’s in my way, everybody’s in my way Even though I can’t say that I know anything ‘bout you but I know I know I knew I wanted to be yours I wish that I was unafraid I knew where I needed to be I knew well how to get there But I wasn’t brave Even though I can’t say that I know anything ‘bout you but I know I know I knew I wanted to be yours I knew I had to be yours

More Tunnel 03:18
Lyrics by Alex Kerns Closer I get, less I see No light, more tunnel For every complicated situation there is a very simple motive I feel the two hands circle I switch from pencil to pen For every complicated situation there is a very simple motive Closer I get, less I see No light, more tunnel For every complicated situation there is a very simple motive My head a hive of rumor I feel the two hands circle There isn’t enough time I was taught to trust the mirror but now I see its not right The harder I struggle the more I feel the rope Soundless laughter I heard, I know I’ll prove it wrong I want to be somebody I want to be somebody else For every complicated situation there is a very simple motive

Kicking In 03:05
Lyrics by Alex Kerns …I think it’s kicking in Seriously, let’s move to Punxsutawney Did we get surround sound? Cause everything sounds like something I had, but I hadn’t noticed I think that Danielle’s treats are kicking in on Nancy Cowboy, I think we’re running low Cowgirl don’t wanna come back to Earth Like something I had, but I hadn’t noticed I think that Danielle’s treats are kicking in on Nancy

Lyrics by Sheena Ozzella I plucked the petals off and you were feeling convictable One by one, feeling responsible I won’t love you because I’m supposed to I won’t let you in I see a sliver of change a pin dot of rearranging everything Just like a sponge that’s lost its absorption You have no saturation I’m not responsible I won’t love you because I’m supposed to I won’t let you in I see a sliver of change a pin dot of rearranging Everything, everything stays the same I could be a better sister but there is something horrible bringing you lower, lower, lower

Lyrics by Alex Kerns Airplanes, birds and my heart fly in cursive Life together easily unrolled like a valuable rug Dead leaves fall and carpet the lake below They’ll have to catch up later, we’re tired of waiting But by then we’ll have floated somewhere else

Lyrics by Alex Kerns Created by lovers, raised by enemies who still love each other Always at their best when they're at each others mercy I'm sick of waiting in my cocoon another day unbloomed I don't know how to talk to you Still today, unbloomed I don't know how to talk to you I guess I have the rest of my life But I have a feeling I'll be saying that til the day I die They're both abstract which I guess is sort of better There's less to get mad at Waiting in my cocoon another day, unbloomed

Ox (demo) 02:08
Lyrics by Alex Kerns Everyday I grow I study you Hiding in my room If those aren't your feet stepping outside my door It must be an ox I throw a fist like Buster Douglas I traveled so far away from you I still felt that familiar void Haunted by your wounded eyes And your modesty, false or otherwise You were busy selling porno to the mob I traveled so far away from you I still felt that familiar void Haunted by your wounded eyes And the pressure you put on me to stay alive
