Track Name: Negative Freedom
your body contorts like melting steel
you desire to define what is real
aspirations of a freedom you never feel
you desire to resemble your ideal

binaries from which your brain can't shield
you desire control of what is real
aspirations to look the way you feel
you lose control of what is real

a separation, a loose seam
minimisation of a bad dream

forces dictate how i feel
i lose control of what is real
aspirations of a freedom i never feel
i desire to resemble my ideal

never being how you perceive

to be seen
to be free
Track Name: Theft Utopia
your kids
your wife
your home
your money

i hate it
i want it

where will it come from?
it's coming from you

i know where to get it
it's coming from you
Track Name: Performative
you lose grip by increment
sad you look so impotent
judge of what's legitimate
self-assigned sophisticate

your position of power
the central conceit

loudest person in the room
all subordinate to you
pissing contest champion
nothing seems to get through
Track Name: Inspection House
it's blinking at me
it's burning my eyes
it's making guesses
it knows me from the inside

morals reformed

it's causing problems
it logs when i breathe
it's making suggestions
it knows i can't leave

it hums in the background
it watches me sleep
lacking interaction
grind myself clean

comfortless structure
my time well spent
a glass lantern
i'm content
Track Name: Eternal Rotation
i'm waking up in shivers
i'm waking with a cold sweat
you disappear from view
no knowledge of what comes next

too long curled in a ball
too long in a pit
too many years having breath clutched from you

how long before your body is crushed by the column

to be taken by vehicle
to be taken by attack
to be taken by terminal illness

how long before my body is crushed by the column
Track Name: Box Act
you've got so many questions
pulling at a thread
it's more than i asked for
pry open my head

you've got personal concern
i'm going braindead
it's more than i asked for
crack open my head

Track Name: Wet Brain
there's a hole where my mind used to be
stumble stagger ahead
fill it with dreams unrealised
fill it with words unsaid

pattern repetition

there's a whole where my mind used to be
false apologies and dread
plug the gaps with cold glass in my hand
plug the gaps with regret

pattern repetition
