Track Name: Recreational Hate
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
Track Name: Neon Prison
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
Track Name: Trembling Reprise
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
Track Name: Wanted To Be Yours
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
Track Name: More Tunnel
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
Track Name: Kicking In
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
Track Name: Sliver of Change
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
Track Name: Lake Below (Alex Kerns Car Demo)
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
Track Name: Recreational Hate (Alex Kerns Car Demo)
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

Track Name: Created By Lovers (demo)
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
Track Name: Ox (demo)
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
