Track Name: Apocalyptic State Of Mind
Apocalypse on my Mind

In an apocalyptic state of mind
You took too much of what was mine X2
But nobody knows
So, onward goes

Beautiful reminders
They operate slow
Just the tiniest flowers
On the side of the road

It’s all greed, greed, greed
Gotta get you what you need
Then one day it’s wide, wide road
Where you weep, weep, weep

Beautiful reminders
They operate slow

In an apocalyptic state of mind
The pain was too much to bare
You take too much and it’s disaster
Boy, have I been there

It’s all greed, greed, greed
Gotta get you what you need
Then one day it’s wide, wide road
Where you weep, weep, weep

Beautiful reminders
They operate slow
While you’re driving nails
Through pure driven snow
And clearing the forest
With banks of my blood
You cannot intake love
Track Name: Persistent Hum of Desire
Persistent Hum of Desire


I was just go, go, go
All on my own, own, own
Self-delusional
Holding onto you

All of my virtues
Stuck in a pinwheel
Dead leaves were rolling
Around my feet
So I leaned into you
You looked into me

I worked my hands to the bone for you
All you ever did was swallow me
Leave me on the sidewalk bleeding
Till you’re done feeding
Track Name: I'm Always Losing Myself
I’m Always Losing Myself (In Someone Else)


Im always losing myself in someone else X2


I never hold the way I see you do
I lost my compass again, does that threaten you?

(cause) Im always losing myself in someone else X2


Maybe yours is coming for me now
I got mysteries you could figure out


Im always losing myself in someone else X2


I lost my compass again, does that threaten you?


Im always losing myself in someone else


oh coocoon oh coocoon
I cannot leave my room
Im afraid of the voices
that follow me around
in my head, on the street,
nearly everyone I meet
wants their fame, wants it now, wants a dollar X2
(oh coocoon oh coocoon
I cannot leave my room)

Im always losing myself in someone else X2
Track Name: Find My Hand In The Dark
Find My Hand In The Dark



i was tossing and turning all night waiting for your love
it was sleep like the husk in my heart was confined to my lungs

everybody takes it as what it is straight off the street
in the dark weeds


but i was stuck without a heart, i was naked in the dark
i know everybody blamed me, when you said I did
I was opening the doors,
i was banging on the floors trying to find you


You out looking for something? Come seek it on me
you in need of something? Come seek it on me
Cause I’m tossing and I’m turning and I cant sleep
and I’m writhing in this coocoon that I built around me
and I’m lusting, and I’m lusting, and I’m lusting


find my hand in the dark,
find my hand in the dark,
find my hand in the dark,
find my hand in the dark


i was tossing and turning all night waiting for your love
it was sleep like the husk in my heart was confined to my lungs


but i was stuck without a heart, i was naked in the dark
i know everybody blamed, when you said you did
I was opening the doors,
i was banging on the floors trying to find you

You want dark waters, I got em X2


find my hand in the dark,
find my hand in the dark,
find my hand in the dark,
find my hand in the dark


feeling you in the dark,
a flame in my head,
a moth in my heart

feeling you in the dark,
a flame in my head,
a moth in my heart

oh coocon
oh coocoon
oh coocoon
come into my room
Track Name: Bombyx
Bombyx


Bombyx X9

Oh sweet home Chicago
I don't know what you know
But every step I start
Brings me a broken heart
What am I to you?

Bombyx X9

30 years of making up all of the answers
I’m a little drowsy, I’m a little weak
what am I to you?

Oh cocoon oh cocoon
I cannot leave my room
I’m afraid of the voices
That follow me around

In my head on the street
Nearly everyone I meet
Wants their fame, wants it now
wants a dollar

You’re an empire
were the worms that feed on your

Bombyx X9

30 years of living
Deep inside of my head
You are my salvation
You are my relief
What am I to you?

Oh cocoon oh cocoon
I cannot leave my room
I’m afraid of the voices
That follow me around

In my head on the street
Nearly everyone I meet
Wants their fame, wants it now
wants a dollar

Bombyx X9


Oh sweet home Chicago
The streets are all in ruin
Hold me in your arms so I can finally fall asleep

Bombyx X9

Track Name: I'm Still In Love With You
I’m Still In Love With You


Crowded room the day I met you
Couldn't tell right from wrong or where
My head was in the clouds
Until you said my name out-loud
I floated down and offered you a chair

I said this is real love
What does that mean for us?

You held me up to raw emotions
The one thing I cannot resist
You made me cry so many times
It blurred the lines between our hearts
Till I felt blind and old and sick

I was holding out for real love
To open up a door for us

At the ledge of our communion
Against my angels beck and call
I followed love into this wide, wild world
I can follow you into the dark

Cause if this is real love
Won’t it light the way for us?
And if this is real love
wont my angels work with us?

Everyone said go your own way
Can’t you see that something’s died?
Were out of money out of luck and out of time
Bu how can I?
I’m still in Love with you
I’m still in love with you
Track Name: Maybe It's The End Of Love
Maybe It’s the End Of Love


down by the road way
coming up on a dream
I remember seein this one
in the rearview like i threw it
He’s gone again, I knew it
till i fall in love again
Oh, ill fall in love again


many take the wind blown soul
hold it till the sun goes down
over when I said it would be
i don’t really take it though cause
loves a semi shaken fool
i call you up again sayin
maybe its the end of love


Our tongues they seemed to quiver
but we were never bitter for long
strange problem
i could never tame it though
My inconsistent nature
my heart, young lion
heart of zionistic love

you smell it coming
Cut the roses as they fall in two
I’m here again with you
singing maybe its the end of our love
maybe its the end of love
