Track Name: Hourglass
When did it become so sequential to you?
so essential
to burn your paths as you move along.
And when did it become clear
to admit the truth
and remove yourself as if you’d always been gone.
My only wish…
I’d like to think it more than a stepping stone.
Not to feel,
But rather to know.
But at your summit, there is no glory
Only disarray and disappointment
to have arrived.
Track Name: Present Tense
Always on idle, staring it down:
the endlessness that is
present tense / revamped paralysis
If we’re driving towards something,
why should we have to wait?
why should we have to put it off?
Arriving at the same point with completely different conclusions.
You sit idly by as I take flight,
You are motionless,
Idle, undaunted, calm, and statuesque.
And in the end,
You will mean
Nothing to me.
Track Name: Languished
TWINKLE-TWINKLE
Track Name: To Be Listless and Aloof
A dream:
to be listless and aloof
to merely sit at the window
and mirror you.

To be contented…
But there is insurmountable isolation
as a fringe element;
bursting in every direction,
amid the stifling insincerities,
and to have retained remarkable indifference.
To be counted
Rank and file
and fall in line.
Track Name: Half-Hearted Theory
This is not unidirectional,
nor clearly defined,
but open-ended and impossible.
But like half-steps, it falters.
I cling to a shortness of breath,
and a shallow reservoir of hope.
And it dims.
All you know now
will be everything you’ve ever known.
And when everything is sequestered,
there’s still the question:
how much mediocrity can you stand?
Until it’s so much,
That the life dries right up.
Your declaration, and reinstatement,
as a living, breathing model
of half-hearted theory.
Track Name: Collapser
Having cast off all things presumed
and predetermined,
the strain grows stronger with time
until it’s almost unbearable.
The weight, crushing an Atlas-like frame,
Cold and unforgiving.
As I bend unto it,
like folded hands collapsing,
I am overcome by a weightlessness
marked by a strange tension.
Realization of a time and action endless,
but not matched in will,
like folded hands collapsing.
Track Name: Lateral and Parallel
I will forgive you these trespasses
and I will give you these new bones to break
and when this all is behind us,
leave you to set them in place
creating your perfect object
a last glimmer

Standing on crippled legs
and realizing there is nowhere to run
as your fading eyes cast down
at the light at the end of the tunnel

Can we move along?
Lateral and parallel
and leave behind
an inconclusive past

Can we move along
never even feeling lost in it
never knowing.
Track Name: The Unveiled Dream
What's come of this for me to feel
cast aside and rebuked
and wrought with haplessness?
Left cringing at the unveiled future
blank and transparent
utterly blank

A future demystified
Nullified

I refuse to be broken
to be cast out
to accept as reality

The dream demystified
Track Name: Teeth to Tongue
Talk so I can hear it
that familiar sound of
teeth
to tongue
to background noise
Talk so I can drown it out

It only serves to ensnare you
only to console you
and your shallow mind.
You set yourself up to fall
and I sit patiently...

You never could stick to anything.
Track Name: Proximity Burn
Even in this closeness,
there is unrest and discontent,
a tension that pushes at the seams.
And I stand corrected
and compromised
Resigned enough to abandon

If only I could pinpoint
the delicate placement of that final straw
Would I say to you,
"I want you to be
so much more than you ever could be."

Proximity burn
cuts to the inside and permeates
Swollen mind
sore with knowing
can you stop?

and all the translucent beauty of ignorance collapses.

Even in this closeness,
You would never know it...
To only speak plain language
I never could.
Track Name: Evolve into Nothing
Still born in the hypothetical
Hanging there.

It was plain to see that what we built was all wrong-reasoned,
Satisfying all the marks on the latest fixation.
Pressing firm on bent redaction.

Still the thing that remains unwavering,
The mind that can be tricked:
There is hope,
There are brighter things that lie ahead.
There is none of that.
Track Name: Lapse
I live between it
the intangible and
the insatiable reality
the lapse that folds me in

At a distance,
there is promise-
brilliant and believable

But here, now
there is only the lapse
that folds me in

Pinned to that awkward twilight
frozen in half-life
excruciating decline

Lapse.
