Track Name: Cartography
Distant Landscapes
in your eyes
secrets locked away

distant landscapes
shaped and defined
furthered by every word you say

distant landscapes
eyes trace the sky
savoring your disaffection

distant landscapes
far from your kind
fixed-point misdirection

distant
far away

Peoples I hope history buries without trace
Peoples I hope time buries without trace
Track Name: Scavenger
Run away
Break out
Watch the world turn
Reject the herd
but you can't detach
a quest for freedom at the price of basic needs

Marginalized
Sidelined
Distanced
Scavenger

No rules
No compromise
Even in the face of apocalypse
Scrounge for change
Become debris
Take the lion's scraps instead of challenging the pride

Escapism
Bleak reverie
You're not one of them, but you played right into their plan

Marginalized
Sidelined
Distanced
Scavenger
Track Name: Glass City
Soak in every second
of the modern age-
it cuts right through.

Refraction.
Misdirection.
Thoughts scatter and diffuse.

Glass City

A vast expanse,
crystalline
where everything tastes saccharine.

Concave and convex
hollow
without
substance.

Glass City

The city that never sleeps.
Tower blocks of deceit.
The city colludes
but I see through
Track Name: In Extremis
Something's wrong
I can't feel my legs
Oh god

I don't feel too good

Lacerations
Feel so cold
What the hell is happening?

I think my eyes are bleeding

Somebody get this fucking knife out of me
There's so much blood
NO

It doesn't hurt anymore

You gotta help me
I don't think I'm going to make it
I can't die this way
