My Room 01:58
Will you follow my lead to the world upstairs It's cold but it's warm in my mind and the sun in my window stands in the air but the blinds they just block out the light. My green room can not be cause it's blue and not green and the carpet's below the TV where the cats like to lie and make noise in the night when I'm tired of trying to sleep. Will you follow my lead to the world upstairs It's cold but it's warm in my mind and the sun in my window stands in the air but the blinds they just block out the light. The stuffed animals sit and they smile at me cause they're ready and willing to play but I'm here on my bed and I'm lost in my head where I'll be for the rest of the day. Will you follow my lead to the world upstairs It's cold but it's warm in my mind and the sun in my window stands in the air but the blinds they just block out the light.

Intravenous 03:08
Drip drip drip eternal bliss is coming for my soul lied upon the tower of babel had to see it fall Is the water coming soon?

And I know in the morning when I wake up I sit at my desk and I sip at my cup I sink in my seat I stare at the screen The day is a lie the night's got no dreams And im tired of waiting forever to say where im going or hoping to be the next day Like a man whose forgotten the pleasures, of being the meaning of breathing the reason for seeing the feeling of light like a man on the edge of a knife and for the life of me I can't believe it's gotten so tight. Well you moan and you scream and you toss in your sheets but no sound comes out and no motions released cause you're scared to deflate or evaporate cause all that you love is the rage in your veins. Like you always thought it was gonna be but never thought you'd see it and you put your hand in your pocket and lean against the wall and the wall starts to break and your arm dislocates and you just can't escape through those long prison gates. Or the mirror in the bathroom or the carpet in the hall or the guitar with wooden stains that you're tryin to play. And I see some people walking outside and I wonder if they feel the same way I feel? Or care the way I care? or mind the way I mind? or do they know, the reasons for being alive? Not just to survive, but to thrive and to climb to the top of a hill with the wind in your hair and the sky in your eyes and say I've got no fear of whatever arrives. And to dive and to fly and to swim in your skin like you've never been fearful of anything.

Swimming through I'm in their land now the soaked waters the wet blue waves. Beneath my brain there are people below? but I can't reach them their bony arms just sway.

Death 00:57

The only lonely ocean was just sitting like a puddle when a crooked cloud on withered winds came floating in unsubtle. "Up above to rain my friendship from a sea so far away" said the cloud now effervescent as her pores began to drain. And they spilled and dripped quite nicely in the day but oh not nightly! For those times when moon was in the blue they fell in storms of lightning. And the only lonely ocean felt the raindrops hit his head, as we waved above to whom he loved for lifting off his dread.

Can I sit, on the swing? Feel some love on my skin? Lemon sweet crawling ants in the grass my tongue in the glass Ice cream.

Willow lights tire spread stomach jumbled shouldn’t have read hate the bus a mouth cactus red sweat down my head drips to inky lungs. Smile tongue spill coughing chests sidewalk chill of frozen breath Looking up winter dust blown in cold air as it’s passing us. Sun head bursts out from angel wings sawdust and milk Strawman is fishing with a sponge sawdust and milk I’m smiling out my eyes I learned to watch the summer rise Not waste my day and sit inside cause it’s a Sunday morning.
10.
I went looking for a rainy day but I forgot, I forgot. No one there to drive me out so late they all forgot, they all forgot. I was just preparing what to say it's not a lot, it's not a lot. I was just pretending that it wasn't a mistake after all, after all. Someone blew my head so far away and now it's gone, now it's gone. By the long grass near the interstate but I was strong, I was strong. Tell me what's your problem and I'll make it all ok is that so wrong, is that so wrong? You and me will learn to be the best of friends i think in not too long, in not too long.

Cough Syrup 01:49
Where's my head again again I ask asleep again again And all my head again again it's ok to fall asleep again again again my hand is tied again again I lose my mind again again and everything again my head it falls away my arms are tied here and everything they all want my head will break and everything that's ours will fall to pieces again. Walk the fields again again till they are tired and all my friends will walk the grass and stand in line in fron tof the bricks where people lie and all my friends are waiting there nobody in clouds I stare the sun the moon and everything again again again again again.

about

Hello there,

After countless hours of blissful work and euphoric toil, I am proud to present you with the Widest Smiling Faces. This album is a compilation of songs arranged to form something resembling an abstract emotional narrative, or to be more abstract, a narrative of imagery and color.

It is recommended that you listen between the hours of 2-4 A.M. preferably with headphones, in a state somewhat between cognizance and senselessness.
