Track Name: Paper Thrones
That hallowed cliff
Those missives missed
That latch adrift

With a Tigris flood
And an ear for bones
Sargon-painted home

Exaggerated heartache
Savior-waiting ring-breakers
Hands to a paper throne
Backs to the maker's throne

Holy as the waters
Before their eyes
"Meribah!" they cry

I've failed in plain
A passage gained
None can count the cost
Track Name: Chicago
Boats bob in the harbor's wake
Vast and cryptic, gray estate
Season’s shifting, frigid gaze
Hazy faces, bitter and frayed

A valley of buildings fold on us
Steel and concrete lose their bonds
A towering black wave, static and still
The frost of a thousand freezing wills

And you, you always knew
You've threshed the form
Come watch the storm

Boil that coffee, grab your hat
When we walk out that door we’re never coming back
The city will claim us for it’s own
No sleep for the wanderers, no fixed home

Spray paint scripted out like vines
Trains tracks like veins track the boundary lines
A chill seeps through our winter clothes
A new soul settles on our withered old bones
