Track Name: Artifact
It's a gift to be confused
Knowing all is where you'll lose
I can preach but you've heard it before
And whom am I to call the score

We failed you yet again

How are you this misinformed
Your empathy has me torn
I know it's hard than ever before
Those easy times are days of yore

You failed us yet again
Track Name: Dodgy At Best
You're a bull, I'm no matador
Your rumors add furor
Such a criminal
Uncouth
Predictable
No more will I be confessor

Running, empty you can't hold onto me
Those hapless days were long ago
Running empty you can't hold onto me
It's time for you to go

Paths collide postwar
Your rumors add furor
Don't be physical
Please don't be difficult
Mark it down as our misadventure
Track Name: Monroe
Your best intentions
Show bitterness
Now your name is spoken
With indifference

They no longer want you
You've set the tone
Those second glances
Are all but gone

Oh, you had a fall Monroe
You got to let it go
Be, Here in the now Monroe
You got to let it go

Shuffle uphill
Your dilapidated soul is a poison pill
Next moves uncharted
No point moving forward half-hearted


Oh, you had a fall Monroe
You got to let it go
Be, Here in the now Monroe
You got to let it go
Track Name: Based On A True Story
July 5th pre-noon
Start drinking to soon
Drove down to the river
Dialed her number and shivered

And he said

Listen girl I'm short on time
I messed up big but this is mine
Pack up quick and bring the gun
They're on their way and not for fun
I'll explain when you get here
Meet me at the Broadway pier
I'm in a grey Silverado
I'll be drinking horchatas

July 5th pre fall
She heard the voices down the hall
The footsteps came closer
She aimed as she loaded

And she screamed

You motherfuckers hit the floor
I'll kill the first nigger who comes through that door
Her courage high her nerves of steel
The effect of 'good stuff' is very real
Within that pause she painted on some jeans
Threw on her sneakers and dropped to one knee
The door swung open they meet eye to eye
Track Name: This Time Around
Daylight stuck in bed till quarter to three
Powerless to the darkness coming down on me
Freeze frame yet spinning 360 degrees
Connecting like a passive aggressive disease

You've chased me for so long
The suffering prolonged
Then you tagged along
To Break Me

This Time Around I'll Beat It Down

You say sit, I obey
You seize my mind and you dance around like a drunken ballet
Medicated, overjoyed
Taking control of my time to make you null and void

You've chased me for so long
The suffering prolonged
Then you tagged along
To Break Me

This Time Around I'll Beat It Down
Track Name: You Bring This On
Flash point, fire to an eerie calm
Toast the moment not the host
Watching, above like a peeping tom
Nonchalant
Aplomp

You Bring This On

Dictate the theme of all that's wrong
The theme to govern all
Target the easily cajoled
Disregards the human toll

You Bring This On

You walk around unaware
Longing to revere
A past we do not share

You Bring This On
