Track Name: Trophy Song
the longer we wait
the warmer their arms get
and we don't want that
do we?
idling is the key
to grabbing the globe
the trophy we hold
in our greatest gloves

in our greatest loves
Track Name: Carrier Hell
and that's the way we fly
and that's the way the news goes
drifting up and off and into orbit

the slogan reads

"we're never grounded
but always proud of our pilots
goggles shining from the open skies above"
falling from the clouds
out of love
out of fuel
out of you

i went window shopping
at the human trafficking store
to see if i could grab
a thrifty new pilot
for my underground show
they said they were all out of you

who would want you
Track Name: The Death Of Activism
opening the part of the room
with walls painted red
and chairs painted blue
curtains tattered, letting in the breeze
I feel free
nothing's happening
there's no incentive
no cause to fight for
holding down the neutral fort
fighting of the neural sort

hosting knife fights in the gun ring
dead girls won't notice but they'll playfully sing "da ny da"
denied a fair trail on which to crawl
baking in the sun unless there's nothing at all to fight for
but then who will we write for?
Track Name: Flying High
skies are right for flying tonight
the fire's bright enough
let's go flying tight in our sights
the other side is high

warm recoveries standing ground
broken blueprints left to flounder

we're flying high tonight

softer landings taking shape
hit it off against the grate

outta sight
Track Name: River Townies
gracefully swayed by the
river townies

i have the wrong idea
surface on marble floors
markets for breaking doors
townies of shedding age
riding the next big sage
doubled down on the phone
take the wrong way home

masters of intellect and bad intel
the bass wont ride and it wont sell

wheres Creep when you need him?
