Track Name: Titan
Clouds stretching over
Crippled by the Water
It's funny how this is
When your skin and mind provide you cover

Clouds stretching over
Crippled by the Water
It's funny how this is
To be a witch under cover

From the seed to the sprout
Trying to flourish within a draught
From my mind no water runs
Which is why my body is as dried up as the sun

I'll say amen to that
I'll say amen, as a matter of fact
Who do I turn to in my time of need
When all I've ever turned to is anxiety

Clouds stretching over
Crippled by the Water
It's funny how this is
When your skin and mind provide you cover

Clouds stretching over
Crippled by the Water
It's funny how this is
To be a witch under cover
Track Name: Temptations
Meeting the people
That sell away smiles
For the same reason
That a bear hibernates

Wires stripped and re-arranged

Meeting the people
That look away as you walk off
For the same reason
That the night blocks out light

Chemical compounds mixed and strange

Meeting the people
That run like water waste infused
For the same reason
A bat hides away during the day

No turnarounds within my range

Meeting the people
That side step faster from things that matter
For the same reason
That we all wanna sleep forever

Temptations within my brain

Now I know that you don't love me
And all I know is I don't need this

Now I know that you don't love me
And all I know is I don't need this
But now I know that I can't shake this
I can't shake this I can't shake this
Track Name: Paule
Seeing faces
Doing tasks
In repetitive repetition
It's hard to forget

Where your room is
Or what you like to eat
Where you are?
You don't know

A boy walks in
His smile
Never evades
Your confused face

But he can't help you
You're far too far
And he cries to god
To save you
Track Name: Apparition
Forming an opinion
Fighting yourself
Nihilist encounters
With your sub-conscience

Living is heaven
But hell is existing
Confusion and dwelling
Leads to this crisis

And I don't
Want to
Be here any longer than I
Have to

Living is heaven
But hell is existing
Confusion and dwelling
Leads to this crisis

And in my head
I'm just an apparition
Floating in space
While I'm still here on earth
Track Name: Influenza
Influenza is blocking our motion
Influenza is killing our time
Influenza is blocking our feeling
And it's killing all of our kind

Legs collapsing
Lungs are punctured
Broken femur
Brain is done

All of this was a product of influence
A product of influence?
I am done

x2
Track Name: Superchamp
And it's the end of the year
And everybody gathers to cheer
Except
For me

I don't see a future here
for my body clear
Of
Feeling

x2
