about

This album is dedicated to my mom, for being infinitely supportive, and to Mikki, for being the best friend anyone could ask for.
This wouldn't be possible without either of you.

Track Name: Flowerviolence
Fuck the luck of the draw
Ride the road 'til it's raw
Ceaseless, beyond, above
My hundred ton will be done

I'll die young or not at all
No rest before my misery is mauled
Until the last twitch of an eyelid
Until my cup runneth the fuck over

Seeping into peach dreams
Dead ends don't mean shit to me
No regard for the laws of wasted hearts
Unprimordial, forever out of the dark

Eternal abbhorence of dormance
Thunderstorm rocks dipped in gore lie before us
Bloodborne neon pathogen injector
Torrential bloom of rose petal spectres
Try to stop this
One with the pavement

Doubter blood in my goblet
Eyes on everything I've ever wanted
Determination diabolic

Fuck the luck of the draw
Ride the road 'til it's raw
Ceaseless, beyond, above
My hundred ton will be done

I'll die young or not at all
No rest before my misery is mauled
I'll die young or not at all
I'll live to see the fall of every unwanted wall
Track Name: Cherryhouse
Suspended in the thickest air I've ever let into my lungs

I'm a caged fucking animal, withering quicker with every wasted second
The vomit clawing up my rusted gullet tastes like a foreboding bullet
All it takes is a tap to set off the whole fucking field
Peace pentacles don't fit through the grid, my glitched blemishes can't be concealed

Effigy of a functioning human being
A deathly, walking husk
Vantage point of hell, tying the end of the line
Almost cold enough to seek the solace of the dust

Dead inside but still alive

Drifting one more mile by my own hand
Another circle deeper from who I am

Sap my blood, drip by drip
Drain my brain, sip by sip
Behead me sweetly
Take what's left

Drifting one more mile by my own hand
Another circle deeper from who I am

Pupils replaced by haze
A mind that emanates white noise
End of the end of the end of the end
May this plague of heartcarving hate be destroyed
Track Name: Limehouse
I will break what has broken me
From the valley to the peak
I will nail myself back together
Never again will I sink so deep

Up, up and over, evolve over doubt
Pastel powertrip, beware the violet shroud
Everything that was holding me back
Is bound, gagged and tied to the tracks
I'm taking back the ship
Leaving this hollow shell in the mist
Death to my lesser self, barrier be gone
Iced upon the entrails of what I've become

If I didn't think there was an exit I'd make one
Not out of spite or sadness, but absolute disinterest
I'm already damned to the depths
But I'll be damned if damned is permanent

I wish on my worst enemies what I've felt
Rather you than me, discard the hand I've been dealt
Frontline state of mind, bottom line health

Evade the grave
Refuse to go out silently
Or without incident
Resist submission violently
Track Name: Megafauna
No umbrella, typhoon swelling, cloven hoof in the cards
Liquid gold sprinkler, heater, horns sparkling in the yard
Loading screen, napping behind the burning stars
Sapping down the sun
The calm before the swarm nurtures itself
To the buzz of a moonblessed bell
Gaze of the ghostly gazelle
Infinite energy drawn from above

Fifty acre forest manufractured to last
Enchanted antlers tear right through the stomach of the overcast
Firm in the folds of the earth, magic gash
Seasonal rot upon the pillars of the past

Diamond dagger, refuse to stagger
Try to thwart me, head on platter
I missed my mouth and popped open a cloud
Downpour of downer antidote
Summertime limerunner, slew of sunchimes
Choke out what holds you back and float
Slow down and soak
Morning star, evening dew
Sometimes it takes the stab of a rose
To bloom and blossom anew

In time, perfect time
This will all fade away and decay
I passed the torch back to the sky
May the healing light shimmer on the coronary bay
Track Name: Purple Zephyr
Give in to the inkling that there's meaning in nothing
The going rate of golden brains is shifting as the thunder sings

Scream into a face of stone
I am unphased to the bone
Everything is absurd
Everything is absurd

An elaborate self-destruction piece you're willed into at birth
On the star-spangled slowburn to railroad performance art
Daily casino run, drifting closer to the sun
Deathdriven life-living, straight through the heart

As I creep in to the deep end
I am holy, nearly completed
Give in to the inkling
That there's meaning in nothing

Hell-lit lantern hanging by a fuse
Swinging towards the house of the full moon
The neverending downpour of
Black glitter behind my honey hive eyes
Snake eyes in my cranium
A tongue of toxed up titanium

Self-preservation, lucid, waking
Only person in the room that hears the earth shaking
Perched upon the last grain of sand
Fuck this bond, I'm a free man

Give in to the inkling that there's meaning in everything
Track Name: Centerpiece
Endless defense, I won't relent
Front lines, iron shined, this armor won't bend
Selfcare, heartbare, wealth where it counts for you
The strongest stronghold is you looking out for you

Harness the hate heating up in your heart
Don't let these tendencies tear you apart
Refuse to relinquish your right to breathe
Ceaseless self-belief is all that you need

Unapologetic nectar
Genetic record wrecker
Snake the bait to wait another day
Death sentence down upon what's in the way

Remove yourself from the wheel
Unsheathe your arms to the wind
Shatter your shell within
A gallery of outcomes without end
Fall down, bottomless, no sound
Mint condition ambition buzzing all around
Palisade palace, purple power talisman
Re-establish, snatch the crown, overturn your calluses

Vain to no fault
Love the life out of disorder
Self doubt cut down
Stress and pressure drawn and quartered

Harness the hate heating up in your heart
Don't let these tendencies tear you apart
Refuse to relinquish your right to breathe
Ceaseless self-belief is all that you need
Overthrow the threats thriving in your head
Keep it from feeding, recycle death
Make peace and speak with clarity on your breath
One life, one heart, one mind to protect
Track Name: By Blood
Stay away from they
No hesitation in selfsaving fleeing
No space in the circle for
Malfunctioning human beings
Unplace the blame
Rip down your walls
Rebuild them around those who want you to fall

Tug of a string to trim up the family lumber
To the chipper on a whim, never to be resummoned
The message lies behind the emptiness in my eyes
I'll see you guys the next time one of us dies

Thin ice out of thin air
Try me, watch the welcome wear
Default dangling by a thread
Fall from zero, shackles of lead
Medusa eyes and I'm out
As the dust pours from your mouth
Out of the ooze, away from you
Devolve without me, be gone without doubt

The emptiest words: Sorry for your loss
I don't like you now, it won't change after you rot

Retaliate with silence
Pure emotional violence
Bond based on relation; archaic
Zero tolerance, no love wasted
Track Name: Channel
Put your pain into the paint
Bare the fangs of aspiration slain
Personal apocalyptic ellipsis
Kingdom come melts into haunted digital hell
And back again

Cliffhanger
No floor, no ground to grip
Underworld unrendered, black mist repurposed

Loot these gashes and harvest every lash
Discard the poison bubbling back from the past
It won't pass until you let it
Spew every ounce of bile back into the vile pit
Cryptkeeper deluxe

Anti-summit, no return

Shovel to the dome of every carcass grabbing at the crown
Fight or flight all night until the dawn keeps 'em down
Replenished by hardships, amplified by the occult
Energized in exile, escape from the gulch
Track Name: Primal Revival
Astronomize me, in and out of sunlight me
Take me to the holy land where UVs pour
Ocean juice drizzled on my glowing, roasting temple
In again, zen again, mesh my madness with yours

Queen of chaos, king of peace
Glide of glory through the courts of duality
Kona blend king, Sony-bred darkling
Technicolor eye sockets seering and sparkling

Tunnel vision, I'm a moth on a mission
A centralized stampede upon the sounding of the sound
Baywatch run to the holy land of freedom
Skeleton keys in a rotten ribcage, spirits spinning unbound

To glorify my gut
Bring extinction to the rut
Let this despair dry out to death
Birds of prey embedded in my breath

I'm the king of the fucking world
Ashen earth law, unfurled

Crisp water running through my vascular wicks
The inferno I've harnessed will not be extinguished
Astronomize me, in and out of sunlight me
Take me to the holy land where UVs pour
Ocean juice drizzled on my glowing, roasting temple
In again, zen again, mesh my madness with yours
Track Name: 20/20/20
Suffocated by the void, choke
Silence as the portal expanded and spoke

Behind the loading screen
Beyond the rendered world
No lifeguard on the beach at night
Hole in the fence, unfinished insides

Rising foresight, florescent horizon
Throbbing and thriving, deep-mind diving
My skeleton is a house of cards
Ace of upgrades in space, ∞ stars
Ethereal swell of the hive
Each jagged cell a new path laid bare
Seafoam moon cycles dancing on my forehead
Blood magician, self-ensnared

The ripest of my condolences
For the raised islands on your flesh
It won't be like this forever
Just until the table is set

Midnight glory
Lock every door, seal up the curtains
Revealed by candles, the veil is burning
The streets are teeming with Gypsy curses
Spirits thirsting, revelations dispersing

Ethereal swell of the hive
Each jagged cell a new path laid bare
Seafoam moon cycles dancing on my forehead
Blood magician, self-ensnared
Track Name: Citrus Sun
I'm drinking octopus blood
In the wake of the wave of the age
Oil rainbows remain where the mammoth froze
Outlived the cold, reanimated and rose

In the belly of the beluga
Bonus round recalibration, set to
Lycanthropic, I can't stop it
Tropic timebomb, I won't drop it

Swimming in the smokiest daydrifts
Hovering above the ocean with an old mist
Bracket breaker, spirit shaker
Make me feel alive again

Headlights glowing pink
Through hilltop bushes, beneath a violet sky
A net of solar shrines stretched over me
Blasted by beams of cathartic light

Good things come to those who wait
Good things come to those who don't
Good things come to those who float
And those who flip the fucking boat
