Track Name: Cocoon
renegade baby jane
escaping on a runway train
no ones fault and none to blame
but the rain

seething virus pirates eyes
the pleasured shock of your surprise
a future you could not surmise
no matter how hard you try


a twisted torso and a tangled tongue
remember when the rock was young
you used to dream but not you’re
done like you’re
in a cocoon

a slip of the wrist
a turn of fate
a load stone on the levee break
how much longer can you levitate
when the ceiling come crashing down

I seen you burning out
underneath the things to do today

defined by what your leave behind
while senseless senses leave you blind
groping for your tasteless mind
While it fades away again

eternity upon her lips
haunted by her anguished kiss
and the memories of her tenderness
and her insecurities
Track Name: Hindsight
I’m sure it’s cold up north so I sent your coat by mail you’re gonna need it on your wandering when theres snow out on the trail the sweet side of a bitter truth is that we refused to quit yeah we gave it our best shot baby and tried to make things fit its easy in hindsight to see where things went wrong we’ll have to learn how to get by when our hearts stop holding on when our hearts stop holding on I could have been better for you if I had tried to see but the writing on the wall was ignored i just wanted to believe in you and me belgian waffles, bacon, eggs and flowers in a vase we could have had the world on a string it could have been ours it could have been ours its easy in hindsight to see where things went wrong we’ll have to learn how to get by when our hearts stop holding on when our hearts stop holding on
