Track Name: punishment
lock away
what we can't control
throw away
all that's misunderstood
punish all
who aren't normal
clip their wings and blame them for their troubles

it only matters til' it affects us at home
it only matters til' its at our front doors
it only matters
Track Name: stress case
busted engine shutting down
maggots eat away my crown
shaky legs, twisted tongues
clenching jaw
i bite my thumb

septic tank in my head
drought of thoughts
i pinch my skin
kicking feet, throbbing brains
the pressure builds
i pick my face

i feel the drought coming
Track Name: sister
my sisters burning in the california sun
ignored by everyone
her shaky hands hold cardboard signs
you dont look her in the eye

the systems failed her
you can see it in her face
if you ever care to look
she shivers with sickness, self defeat and anger
the worlds abandoned her

the things she has to do...

no hope
she blames herself
she self medicates to keep the thoughts subdued
Track Name: major arcana
brittle bones like black houses
choking roots, screaming floorboards
beaten bodies like broken windows
train tunnels and black mold spores

house of tarot cards
we all fall on our swords

major arcana
stories in our palms
rats scratch in our walls
Track Name: white savior mouth
my voice trembles with doubt
silenced by yr white savior mouth
yr good intentions arent enough
you interrupt

talk so loud
drown you out
steal yr voice

i have got to learn to shut my damn mouth
i have got to learn to take up less space
