    Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    As I put together this album, there were pieces of paper I used to sketch ideas, determine track names, etc. There are three such pages and thus there are three such CDs. If you'd like me to autograph said page, let me know on the purchase notes.

    Now you can have the hauntingly beautiful cover art by Dusty Neal as a high quality 10" x 10" print. The artwork is too intricate to leave solely for a CD and tiny digital screens and thus prints were made. This limited edition bundle includes aforementioned print, CD, die cut 5" artwork sticker, and digital download.

lyrics

I smash the walls that they build, tactical splinters
Surpass the thrall with skills, amidst a massacre winter
Let’s just call it what it is, withdrawal it’s ill
Tangled web, a spider lies upon her ball of silk
dollar bills, ankle deep in wet cement, baby steppers represent
Take a minute for that second spent,
left a dent, no festive lens is seen a stressful end
So let’s pretend the rules they made apply to them and press repent
I wrecked the pen, ink spill exxon valdez
The best and worst of times, accursed minds inside of foul leagues
My falconry amalgam of alchemy on how to breathe
Falling on deaf ears, feather pillows smother sound asleep
Crown the beast claws scratching on the palace floors
Hardened hearts raising foulest swords the calloused forged
Sharpened blades serrated sparking in the darkest days
It’s been a while since they succumbed, but now they start to crave

I’m spending time like a billionaire with a thousand watches
Constant withdrawals, never thinking about deposits
The sound of faucets, steady drip of water torture
Wander lost…within a toxic torpor got them warmer

We celebrate the failure of those who had dared to try
As though the air we breathe is rarefied and there’s the lie
Pointing fingers grubby digits what he did was verified
Poison stingers So many scared to fly yet wear a kite
A cherub’s spine crackles under pressure spare the pine
Run for cover with abundant treasure best beware of mine
Too scared to climb rather see the mountain and call it quits
The kid making mystic potions dosage from a cauldron drips
No fault of his, the line is San Andreas random praises
The phantom paces underneath the stanchion hands in cages
No keys to find beyond pianos ammo reeks of hatred
I’m speaking statements catapulting past the recent wages
I breach the mazes they created, and reap complete amazement
Sometimes I sit back and can’t believe I even made this
But time’s signature is signed upon my contract
Written deeply in the wrinkles signaling my gone past
