No Mirror 04:56
No Mirror: Arms of the mother will keep you in grace Our generation's no mirror to face Chemical progress is sure to erase The anchors of history keep us in place It's hard to tell them apart from the flies It's hard to stand upright under their lies An island surrounded by coastlines of eyes They want surrender Eyes in the mirror Eyes in the dust I'm not the sick one Watching the stakes growing higher and higher Watching the rats as they lie and conspire All of these oceans to put out the fires Ashes to ashes our funeral pyre If you believe that you've been led astray See that the mirror is taken away Would you still choose to remain in a cage? Would you surrender Eyes in the mirror Eyes in the dust I'm not the sick one Now nothing's the same as it was And the wolf has come right to my door I'll forsake myself to the claim That I just don't believe anymore

Baby Steps 05:06
Baby Steps: She came to me with baby steps, at first I could not see this blessing it was a curse Her eyes are hollow like an open grave I cannot help myself, I am to blame I gave the baby too much milk to drink Then it got greedy and learned how to think I see it crawling out an open grave I cannot help myself, I am to blame It's more than I could ever ask of you It's more It's more than I could ever take from you It's too much, more I rock your cradle till the splinters come I tie you up until you come undone We'll think it over, in your open grave I cannot help myself, I am to blame It's getting easier to hide from you I set the trap and watch you run into All my obsession coming down in spades I cannot help myself It's more than I could ever ask of you It's more It's more than I could ever take from you It's too much, more You never punished me, it's too late Why don't you keep away? I've been so tired but awake while you keep counting down It's more than I could ever ask of you It's more It's more than I could ever take from you It's too much, more
