lyrics

[Lakewalkers]
These photographs can’t stare back
The crows stole your eyes, as the gavel cracks
Your friends are statues made of wax
The tears sound like laughter and the sky rains black

[Time]
Tentacle face, greed in a suit
Burn all your money you’ll get closer to the truth
A picture’s worth a 1000 epiphanies
Megalo-Maestro radiation symphony
Here comes the mothership, let’s write a new bible
Let’s make a new religion load up the rifles
Peace is impossible like Escher’s triangles
They speak in spectacles and write their lies in gold

[Maudlin Magpie]
With the skeleton key, we're ascending the sea's shelf
as the magma stairs climb high to the surface
watch the ice nine earth die under each footstep
our bodies carved bone, like trees through these winter worlds...

[Lakewalkers]
These photographs can’t stare back
The crows stole your eyes, as the gavel cracks
Your friends are statues made of wax
The tears sound like laughter and the sky rains black

[Maudlin Magpie]
and it's this gold flaked pain is why Elliott walked out
knuckled clouds reaching through this nuclear drop-out
Thing is cradling the new economy's cop-out
a sea of tears, tank of fears, will it ever clear???
hypercolor / technicolor, eyes need tracking
batteries are charging, keep those veins in the caffeine
the continent will drift and send Blackwater packing
skyscraper, fear of death, the earth mother's gasping!

[Time]
These buildings look like Dali was playing with Lincoln Logs
But they’re just mausoleums if you look through the fog
Adam Smith’s hand will usher you to the plank
Cause that wasn’t gods blood that was dogma you drink
The drones killed all the butterflies in my stomach
Life is open heart surgery these words help me numb it
Big brother’s stillborn blame it on the hacking
Mother Nature’s in the hospice, the humans left her packing

[Lakewalkers]
These photographs can’t stare back
The crows stole your eyes, as the gavel cracks
Your friends are statues made of wax
The tears sound like laughter and the sky rains black
