Track Name: The Question
the touch was just a crutch
to make it another day
empty holes filled to the brim
with a lust so cold
breaths frozen sins
the sky it is empty
and so are these memories
sunshine brings light to regret
spent too much time on those knees
because it’s easy, it’s sleazy, it’s empty,
it’s cold, and it hurts
unexpected naive intermission
the actors well trained and staged
lights flicker, eye contact made
bleed that second, bleed that shame
and know they are empty
and so are these memories
sunshine bleeds heartache and pain
spent too much time on those knees
because it’s easy, it’s sleazy, it’s empty,
it’s cold, and it hurts
Track Name: Scorched Earth
good ole texas boys wanna kick my ass
lock me out of their definition
so i can never meet success
don't ask me why
i got troubles on my mind
a mean streak a mile wide
they tell us we're not worth the same
the same of body and mind
your words don't speak to me
but you can't stand to hear my truth
your words define my life
but i refuse
and in spite of you
i hold my head up high
meet your gaze with unyielding eyes
they tell us we're not worth the same
the same of body and mind
i reject this scorched earth life
scorched earth
Track Name: Smoke Signals Lost
now here we stand in the dusk of our lives
canyons swallow the sun from the sky
shadows tell me that it’s time to move on
babe, don’t you know the desert will never let me go

every night you burn a fire to guide me home
smoke signals lost on me, a language unknown
what possesses me?
why do i stay?
it creeps and circles me, it haunts my every way

oh i’m running out of time
red and orange fade to black

desert floods my eyes
i can’t hear your voice no more
desert floods my eyes
i can’t hear you call me

oh i’m running out of time
red and orange fade to black
