A night alone after a kill
is worth a bottle and a breeze
The illusion of sanity
I fall to sleep, I redirect
I tend to easily forget
the sacrifices on my feet

In safety of what I know
and what I don't
I choose my audience
in a search for mates
I find my pack
I follow through
I tend to easily approve
the sacrifices on my feet
And I move on...

I earn, I win, I deserve
Plastic fish, plastic teeth, plastic body bags
I love, I own, I civilize
Nevermind the voices
Nevermind their screams:

Is my back a mattress?
Is there a mark for you to shoot?
I hate the way you kill me
by building castles on my wounds

We are rebuilding
We keep our heads above water
We are surviving
Until you show us how to live

All we say,
All we do
and all we could, if we would
Shadows of our best intentions


from On The Quiet, released February 1, 2017
