Track Name: Chain of Command
Sewed Lips; Sink Ships

Day in, day out, horrors in my head
Clock in, opt out, when life hangs by a thread
Don't ask, act now, but i don't know how to deal
Humanitarian emergency

But what is seen, I will never unsee

(Solo)

But what is seen, I will never unsee
And what I’m shown can never be told

Now I guard a system, built on abuse
Lock and key, our man's need for certainty

But what is seen, I will never unsee
And what I know can never be shown
And all I felt was empty, numb and cold, the failure of man

With heart subdued, what am I meant to do?
Refute values, I’ve gotten myself into?
The privilege of few/No gift of hope renewed
Track Name: Through and Through
I question your veracity, it doesn't match my hostility, another gendered crime
You failed to mention, and I'd only be an ambivalent sycophant, there's betrayal down the line

I'm not worth the fear of abuse
I'm not worth the threat to our children
I'm not worth crippling isolation
But you've heard it all before

Through and through x 3
Just like you, I will deny and minimise, through and through
Just like you

I'm not worth the blame and coercion
I'm not worth sexual manipulation
I'm not worth reinforcing subsistence
But you've hear it all before

Inside this head you're always going to be a threat
This wheel of control indiscriminately takes it toll and I...

I …will…. never…. go
what you've seen and but never shown

Through and through, I'm just like you, through and through
Track Name: Remember When (is the lowest form of conversation)
I can recall a time
Where nothing of the kind
Seems to match the life we destined to refuse

I can recall a time
Pull it from my mind
In my defence, seems common sense that we would always follow through

Life’s a shit, this reminder becomes harder to face:
Can’t help but take it any other way

You’re not the counter-culture
You’re not the elongated truth
Don’t grow up, let’s grow up
Lest we forget about the days of remaindered youth

I can recall a time
But it’s better left to rest
We’ll only drag it through a misconstrued idea of knowing best

Can’t help but take it any other way
Life’s a shit, but I never want to hear you say
We move on, this reminder becomes harder to face
“I’ll meet you down for a chop at Leatherface"
Track Name: An Augury
Out of sight

Worry is aimless yet more of the focus…but I just don’t care
The rising tide and eventual decline…but I just don’t care

There’s catastrophe, although minimally, and all faith seconded to hyperbole
We’re way past the point of eternity so get it through your fucking head

Can’t…turn… off
Brain … must… stop

Out of sight
Out of mind

Revenge fantasies pray for apathy so we don’t have to care
All presence of mind is viewed from behind…so we just don’t care

There’s catastrophe, an augury, an overestimation of responsibility
A tension erupts in futility so get it through your fucking head

Can’t…turn… off
Brain … won’t… stop
But I just don’t care

I’m living in this fear of sleep, will be will be, and everything is hazed by caffeine
Why can’t I just let it go, it’s all I know, severing psychotic belief
But I just don’t care, but I just don’t care
But I just don’t care, but I just don’t
CARRREEEE
But I just don’t care, but I, I, I, I, don’r
Track Name: Cross the Floor
Let my body press the shake
Can’t slow down to take a break
Any breath, refuse to take

Circling round I find mistakes
I’ll soon be found out as a fake
PM attitude for fucks sake

But we’ve heard this all before
So let’s spare the thought, let’s stare down complicity

Your ideas are boring me to tears
Life survives and still,
I fear the change to come

But we’ve heard this all before
So let’s spare the thought, let’s cross the floor
I don’t want be here anymore
Cause I don’t want to be here anymore…than you do
Track Name: At Odds
And we strayed for awhile
Indefensible judgement of life
Between the lines
Content by the ramble, meander of time

But something keeps disturbing me, returning to an outer world view (haven’t a clue)
So I keep on furthering a desperate imitation of youth

I think I worked you out
Have no doubt, worked you…so…OUT!

Dependent for fear
And all we appear to allow
Yet another year
Can’t close the distance, between here and now

But something keeps disturbing me, returning to an outer world view (haven’t a clue)
So I keep on furthering a desperate imitation of youth and then it comes clear that I

I think I worked you out
Have no fear, have no doubt
I, I think I worked you out
Then it comes clear that I think I worked you out

Can’t escape the grasp of this city
Not long to wait, not long to wait
Can’t escape the grasp of this city
Not long to wait, not long to wait
Can’t escape the grasp of this city
Not long to wait, not long to wait
Can’t escape the grasp of this city
Not long to wait, not long to wait
