Track Name: Summer Ends
faded streamers still hang
with aged, popped balloons
fresh breeze engulfing them
this is how august ends

my sixth one away
from where my life was given
my second one falling
around you as a ribbon
september makes seven
rotations of heaven
since i began constructing
my own secret planet

river still running through
still sand frames the banks
only thing left around here
getting carried away

my sixth one away
from where my life was given
my second one falling
around you as a ribbon
september makes seven
rotations of heaven
since i began constructing
my own secret planet

fire can't burn blue forever
this is why summer ends
sharks taking back all their playgrounds
this is why summer ends
we could all use a little more purpose
this is why summer ends
earth needing death for revival
this is why summer ends
summer ends
Track Name: I Am Love
i spit the seeds of a god into the sea
and fall back into his arms
in my youth i enjoyed this
i drove the divine chariot
but they were just flirtations
and i knew it even then
i was sex

the warm breath on my neck
and the familiar rhythmic pressure
it was nothing new to me now
it was business just business
but i know what i am
i am not ashamed
i'm not ashamed

and well now i am murder
king oenomaus is dead by my hand
it had little to do with him
he was a means
he was a means
and i cheated him
and i killed him
i changed his name to mine
but i know what i am
i am not shamed
i'm not ashamed
Track Name: Nosedive
nosedive
you've got me hypnotized
crumbling walls and soldering wires
bending angles with your pliers

on the path i've built
you have planted seed
and a new one you've made
by pulling weeds
and from the weeds
you build your new home
behind my eyes
where nobody sees

between my ears
behind my eyes
nobody sees
between my ears
behind my eyes
nobody sees
between my ears
behind my eyes
no one sees at all
Track Name: Tomorrow's Breakfast
if you were to say to me
i know where to go from here
i would laugh and walk away
tell me how that feels tomorrow

and if you were to persist with me
i would get irate
and tell all my friends about you
and if they cried i'd catch their tears
and drink them with my breakfast in the morning
