Track Name: Stationary Launch
This is a stationary launch
Clearance for takeoff
And off the pedestal we go
Our streets are paved with gold

A curtain call, a permafrost

This is a stationary launch
Groomed for disclosure
And through a roiling rage
We come, bred for exotica

One day, star shade
Will be over me
Mundane, ribcage
And a sense of peace

This is a stationary launch
Clearance for takeoff
And off the pedestal we go
Our streets are paved with gold

A curtain call, a permafrost
Track Name: All Red Eyes
And as the dawn bears witness
With all red eyes
To crimes of passion
Heaven knows not why

Before me, not quite human
The name of love
It is a double
It is in my blood

Beyond my comprehension
Beyond my time
The baby that you carry
Should be mine

And so the dawn awakens
From the archives
A wicked burgundy
To be my bride

I'll be in hell, right
This is the final rite

I'll see all red eyes
Downward arc of their scan
Track Name: Wellspring
I saw your face
In the final days
Exalted state
In the grip of grace

This charnel map
These pallid hues

How they weigh on you

It's such a shame
Every move you make
You slipped away
And the climate changed

This rose-tinted view
These honeyed words

I saw your face
In the final days
You slipped away
And I took your place

This humdrum style
These old sundowns

If the fates allow

I live, it lives
Love’s final days
Track Name: Look Daggers
My baby
A bad dream
Aroused from
A sound sleep

I brandish the daggers
My life becomes meat

My baby
A cool breeze
Make believe
We're born free

White with captivity
My life becomes meat

And what about love
And what about it
