Track Name: Under the Mud
Swallowing shadows of this life,
cut by the blade again.
Just another night.

The worms in the mud
writhing in pain
from their own experience,
from their own existence.

I am the worms,
I am the god,
we are the love,
You are my knife.
Track Name: People as Birds
You went away
like the birds in the sky,
migrating south;
South of this Life.

You never ever know
because he
never ever says,
You don't know he's gone until finally he's left.

You never ever know
because she
never ever says,
You don't know she's gone until finally she's left.
Track Name: Holes
Holes in the wall
remind me of light.
The smoke escapes there,
it blocks out the life.
Still see the day
and all of the shells of
lost children at play.
There's nothing to see here.
Track Name: Black Holes
Eyes lost in time,
some bright lights,
Let me catch my breath.

Seven days dazed,
hazed and crazed,
Where are we now?

Swimming in black holes,
walking around in circles,
I'll find my head soon.
We're swimming in black holes,
walking around in circles,
I'll find my head soon.

Let's canonize the hour,
put ourselves together;
Every rebel needs a cause.

Until we're back down in the same place,
rocks in a river or lake
just waiting for the tide.

Swimming in black holes,
walking around in circles,
I'll find my head soon.
We're swimming in black holes,
walking around in circles,
I'll find my head soon.

Smoke a bowl and forget
all of those things I forgot,
the brain's a cluttered mess.

Living life a sitcom,
hear Jerry's got a new ploy
to keep us coming back.

Swimming in black holes,
walking around in circles,
I'll find my head soon.
We're swimming in black holes,
walking around in circles,
I'll find my head soon.
