Track Name: Positionings
Yesterday the water;
Today the whale.
Quietly, the story is overwhelming.

Always the movements in the weather.
Always the dirt inside your teeth.
Always the whale to break you down.
Track Name: Constants
Law says there aren't enough of us to win,
Faced with the chance of winter never ending.

Constant necessity of shelter,
Made with the hands that steal the warming glow.

So brace yourself and lie,
This is all there is.
Brace yourself and lie,
I'm not leaving here.
Track Name: The Cold
Inside the whale
The honest saint
Held the sticks to end the gravetide
Held the sticks to stop the rain
The animals
Their rotting bodies
Line the beach like stacks of driftwood
And so we dig a mourning grave.

The difference when nothing's adding up
You'll find out what you've missed
The sounds you hear when you pretend you're sleeping
They'll wait here at your door

Outside the walls
The innocent
Hold the sticks to end the gravetide
Hold th sticks to stop the rain
Ephemeral
Their rotting bodies in the sand
Line the beach like stacks of driftwood.

The difference when nothing's adding up
You'll find out what you've missed
The sounds you hear when you pretend you're sleeping
They'll wait here at your door

Water, water,
The deep blue sea
Water, water,
The world is lost to me.
Track Name: 1000 Shelters
Save your lucky strings,
I'm thinking for the both of us now.
Save your bad dreams,
I'm thinking for us both.

Sad and always thinking for the both of us.

We all say should have been,
If it weren't for 1,000 shelters.
Track Name: The Third Night [Part 1]
Violence,
listen to it...
We are lonely wading.

The careless intake,
The senselessness of everything,
It is overwhelming.
Keep your distance,
Holding rocks out at arms length.


Under the water;
We are & we end.
Track Name: The Fourth Morning [Part 2]
Sun, your way.
Sad and warm, always.
Sun always,
Slow along, your ways.

Sun, always.
Sad and all, your ways.
Sun all yours,
Sad and all yours, always.

You're sad always,
You should have found our ways.
Track Name: The Grouch
Always impossible,
Over soon,
Lies unbelievable,
Lasting.

Sad always,
Set in your ways.

Doubt is always automatic and over soon.
Track Name: Bodies
Our bodies are sold in other worlds.
