salt on your skin a honeyed promise and we’re here again just like you promised lip locked, tongue-tied pulled every which way but right and if i followed you down would you, would you abide… i am what you lose and find again and again wrapped around you tightly binding your pain and i am obsession and strength, and desire i am what you make me again and again… lip locked, tongue-tied pulled every which way but right and if i followed you down would you, would you abide… you are the heartbreak i hide the ache i persist the need i know the want i resist salt on my skin a honeyed promise and here i am again just like you promised lip locked, tongue-tied pulled every which way but right and if i followed you down would you, would you abide…

Owel Five: secret garden, begging you i need a pardon tell me if we’re rolling ‘cause i need to check if we have started read a marker reading names of owel five & jacob earl leave em’, all the leaders said that i would go and save the world i’d hate to say we’ve made it girl, but we were slammed with obstacles you made me think of summer just like, banana popsicles and smoke outside of hospitals, drinking an orange Orbitz moving with the crowd, the future is loud. ignore the forest and behind these shades of Orbison you’ll only find a blinding stare didn’t know the lines, i know it’s stored within my mind somewhere if everything is mine to bear, i really think it bothers me i’m living life in a rom-com, romantic comedy she can’t withstand the odyssey, knowing the things to say then made me follow on a shopping spree, showing no PDA you bleed the way & seize the day that seems to make the wrong shoes fit once again this feels just like a John Hughes flick pretty in pink panthers tend to ignore the glances haven’t heard so many zingers since dinner with George Costanza so you swing a sword at phantoms, keep your cool but loose the heat and if you wanna go and dance you need some fuel to move the feet then go to school assume the peaks, discard the lows below the middle half it seems a little longer but you know how long the winter lasts it is getting fast, you’re holding on but something’s off, wasn’t right letting go is hard when you’re still hanging on those summer nights Jacob Earl: love is a disease love is in the hands of fate you get down on hands and knees to please your mate we were star-cross’d lovers from the start i should have left and cut my losses but I hadn’t the heart love is the poison coursing through our veins i should have voiced it but i concealed my pain love is an act of betrayal a bloody pact doomed from the start to fail…

i’m giving in to a greater sensation i’m giving it all tonight i’m in it for the duration And you’re gonna give it all tonight and i know you want me i know you need me i know i can win it in one i know you’ll give me i know you’ll have me i’m done and coming undone and you’ll love me the way you love me when you’re under my cover You’ll have me the way you have me and i’ll call you lover and I’m hedging my bets and taking a fall i’ll throw up my arms and risk it all

my Corsican Rose daughter of the revolution we brought it on ourselves through our evolution i adopted your sires you fueled my fires we thought that we had found the final solution you were my queen my Josephine you were everything I had conquered in dreams my exile destroyed us split us in two oceans apart and we were no longer true i had no son or daughter by you my empress, my Rose, my Waterloo we had other lovers but none like each other in the end there was nothing this ruler could do my Corsican Rose daughter of the revolution we brought it on ourselves through our evolution

fold the pages you turned over a new leaf an origami montage of forty generations of grief and the pain subsides when you put your heart on the line again a rollercoaster ride translated through sign language at the root of the centrifuge with spokes branched out to all your recruits is the epicentre, pumping your heart out with rage and love and a blackened art it’s a revolution… lay the bricks you cast right from the start… you built a wall around your feelings a stone blockade of forty storeys of concrete ceilings filled with razor blades and the rain abides when you open the window to let the light in again the birds cry how you wish you could hear them sing again…

cling clang the metal hits the forge the bridge gets erected over the gorge no-flow river the well’s run dry we own the water and the sky no barriers keep us bound nature’s getting buried underground

you say i’ll never but i think i will you’re under my skin and we’re traveling still and i feel this feeling i could like it my dear i will completely surrender just to have you near ’cause the salt of your skin the sweet of your kiss the gentlest touch brings me to this that you say i won’t but i think i will your grip is tight and we’re traveling still you have me captive and i like it that way and the truest truths are the ones i don’t say and you think i’ll never but i know i will and with great abandon i am traveling still

now the star-studded cast has not-so-quietly passed into the blackest night they put up a good fight the protagonist and his foil have shed this mortal coil it was a good show the death was nice and slow our wings were our fingers and our fingers were our wings we flew through the airwaves how we loved to sing now the audience applauds all these thespian frauds willingly taken in by their artistic sin the house lights come on to the threnodian theme song the credits roll we exit out into the cold our wings were our fingers and our fingers were our wings we flew through the airwaves how we loved to sing suspend your disbelief feel some fake grief shed some fake tears; feel some fake fears…

one, two, three, four flick the switch butterfly hatch from the chrysalis i was reborn for the forty-first time from a lesser metaphor and god’s a lie caterpillar spins the last cocoon encased in the chrysalis much too soon life’s too short to stay so still evolution moves in for the kill one, two, three, four jump on the bed don’t even worry ’bout bumpin’ your head taking the fall is part of the play if you take no risk you make no pay i don’t bite and i’m not spitting at you trust me, i’ve got better things to do i don’t know swag and never heard you scene truly, i don’t even know what it means one, two, three, four kick the ball butterfly fly from pupa to fall i caught four up in my net let three go and kept the fourth as a pet as a species we like to applaud both our hubris and our god but life’s too short for blind faith hearts i’d rather embrace your body parts one, two, three, four come and get me i’m not your pet but i like when you pet me try too hard and i return in kind the harder the better in my mind just like a young bonnie prince billy my words are your lungs but the rhymes are silly life’s too short for the easy way out i’m never gonna get the sleazy payout one, two, three, four cut the lights bite your lip zipper tight cut up hard across the floor i was reborn to love you some more

here we are one step closer to the future here we stand fading away to particles technology we can cleanly sew up the sutures philosophy we can document and article our memories illusory we’re only artificial intelligence holograms however, we lack the tangible evidence cul de sac a dead end with wires crossed baby got back but baby got no physical presence; she’s lost… disembodied just a ghost in the shell of a man a hologram a virtual unreality on the lam hopelessly lost drifting aimlessly through the ether another home run, another grand slam for the future fictitious features here we are one step closer to the future here we stand fading away to nothingness anthropology we can clearly see the picture psychology we can’t blame ourselves for that.

All songs have been remixed, remastered, and many of the tracks have been enhanced with different instrumentation and/or overdubs. Thus these 25 songs have been almost 9 years in the making.
