Track Name: Flotsam & Jetsam
Flotsam & jetsam arrive on the shore
There were visible marks of a horrible storm
well it tears, yes it tears the sky from the sea
and the horizon becomes an electrical storm

We're crowding out their homes
for many years to come
with each one sacrificed
we took four more just for show

Ladies & gentlemen I think we've arrived
in that place in the corner you wanted to hide
with each nudge of the shoulder, each wink of the eye
comes a perfect incision between sea and sky

We're crowding out their homes
for many years to come
with each one left behind
we took six more just for show

Ladies & gentlemen I invite you to stay
in this alcove we've found
unless you'de be slaine
so it comes and we're restless, we're here for the show
but why settle for less when there's so much more

We're carving out our homes
where each one left their mark
for many years to come
it mirrors what it's become
Track Name: Dressed Wounds
With your mouth out loud
it might get lost
You wrap your legs around my head
and you dress your wounds before your bed

And you put breath
into my mouth
While the forced smoke
rings out loud

I get so tangled in your web
and you dress your wounds before your bed

You know how to bleed a stone
and I know you were raised by wolves
and the city is wild and the country is still
but I don't get what you're advertising

In my Windstar
riding along
I question
question the goal

You spill the ocean on your bed
you dress your wounds until you're dead

You know how to bleed a stone
and I know you were raised by wolves
and the city is mild and the country is still
but I don't get what you're advertising
Track Name: Onward & Awkward
Well the Gruel girls always eat with spoons
they can hardly even taste it
They're fighting over portions
as they tear through their feasts
it's classic
it's fantastic

And all the actions of the Vandals
seeking the Electricians kiss
for a dance below the lightning
feeling every limb just twist

If we were rolling on carpet
If we were pulling down the shades
We'd be really making sense of all the time that waste has laid
while new paper face Alice
eats such delicate eyes
by the light of the moon
right out with a spoon

Well the Gruel girls hardly sleep at all
as they tear through all the vastness
but they compliment a time
when all the streets would have a hint of the drastic
It's reacting

While the Vandals are relentless
their jawbones are strong
pointing comets at all the damned
wrapping thread around
the shrill of the alarm

If we were rolling on carpet
If we were pulling down the shade
we'd be really making sense of all the time that waste has laid
While new paper face Alice
eats such delicate eyes
by the light of the moon
right out with a spoon
Track Name: Young Rapture
When the change came the city had slept whilel it had
lost it's blood to such sharp youthfull teeth
In the dawnlight the people had awoken to
debrit and gleaming rubies strewn about the street

Here among ferrel animals with prowling eyes
monsters walking down the alleys in the map of my mind
I can say I can see that I'm going blind
in an effort to deny a woken canine spine
built with teeth and eyes

When the smoke cleared the wolves on the throne laughed
and picked their teeth with our hopes and our dreams
in exchange they had built us a world of elastic, plastic, lunatic
notions of peace

Here among ferrel animals with prowling eyes
monsters walking down the alleys in the map of my mind
I can say I can see that I'm going blind
in an effort to deny a woken canine spine
built with teeth and eyes

They're gonna tear out your flesh
They're gonna rip it away
They're gonna tear out your flesh
They're gonna peel it away
Track Name: Glacial Drumlins
In a sequence of events
justice claws its way beneath the carpet's edge
while they're rolled in rugs

Set in rows along gallows
and wrapped in rags for quick escape
they hide themselves in pianos

and it calms them all
while looking out
for the hurricane

Well hell is green as gold
they poured it all onto the floor
and drained it out
a sea of fire

that calms them all
and the carpet sparks
engulfed in flames

And it drifts apart
in mid-air flight
towards the hurricane
