Track Name: I Was A Cyclone
underneath the ship and the waves
is the wall you asked me to break
came in second but didn't even place
now crumbling with the bottom of the ocean floor
drifting out as astroids into deep space
an anchor isn't an anchor with out its weight

let the waves cast me out
let them over take my body now

well I was in the eye of the storm
thrown across the sky like the lights of a passing meteor
I was a cyclone cycling out
all the things that don't mean anything anymore
washing myself clean
of all the parts about me
that no one else has seen before
I wish you felt at home when you were with me
cause Id ask you to come back home to me
let the waves cast me out
let them over take my body
Track Name: A Hull of Holes
These days, you used to understand.
But on the truck ride home I felt gravity in your grasp.
Pulled to appreciate
only the last taste,
misplaced the value in what we digest.
In some ways, I used to be a man.
Yet, in reminiscence
we strayed far from the past.
Made it easy to complicate
lets make hast
and not regret what we once had

These days, you used to understand.
But on the truck ride home I felt gravity in your grasp.
Pulled to appreciate
only the last taste,
misplaced the value in what we digest.
In some ways, I used to be a man.
Yet, in reminiscence
we strayed far from the past.
Made it easy to complicate
lets make hast
and not regret what we once had

A hull of holes,
to meet your goals,
and all your masts of net,
I've checked my glass,
and I fear you'll sink afloat,
In the end I fear we'll all sink afloat.
sinking were we stand
A hull of holes,
to meet your goals,
and all your masts of net,
I've checked my glass,
and I fear you'll sink afloat,
In the end I fear we'll all sink afloat.
sinking were we stand

These days, you used to understand.
But on the truck ride home I felt gravity in your grasp.
Pulled to appreciate
only the last taste,
misplaced the value in what we digest.
In some ways, I used to be a man.
Yet, in reminiscence
we strayed far from the past.

and you said the people that know you best
would understand that you've changed
but the people that know you best
might not feel the same way
and you said the people that know you best
would understand that you've changed
Track Name: Self Repented Savior
I ran my luck out again
I drove it like I stole it
till the tires wore thin
This road I'm driving is as deep as I'm in
I have more than one addiction
this poses as a problem
i can't submit to admit that i got 'em
Distracted in transactions 
in transit from cash bins
test drive or crash test
and I can't tell you what happens next
but i know i can't be worth anything less


Oh and I am the cursed 
cause i am the voice in my head
that makes this hard for myself  to understand 
to be born to die for something thats been unsaid


don't say that their damned if they haven't broken in
no they haven't broken in
no we're not broken
self repented savior
who can't make amends
bounded in beauty of dirt 
better pile it in
Ive said it twice and Ill say it again
if we haven't broken in 
then we're not broken
Track Name: Bear Trap
its not much
but its more than most
and you did it all on your own
oh you're so adult
and you're claiming that these are the hard times
the hardest time of your life

its same even when its worse
cracked dry desert dirt
on the bones of what once roamed
from the new generations to the old
but its a memory because it ends
and when we die a new life begins

and you let the world laugh at us
but today were laughing back
like a flash back of all mishaps
of relapse and go ahead and react
cause were closing in on
you faster than a bear trap

its not much
but you did it all on your own
oh you're so adult
and you're saying that these these are the hard times
the hardest times of your live
that you know of

This is this is the rest and everything else
we are the weight we carry under our belts
were the ice on your feet unwilling to melt
This is this is the rest and everything else
we are the weight we carry under our belts
and I hope this song hangs on just to dwell
