Low blood sugar and pressure I’m falling The lights I’m so heavy My movement unsteady I careen on a whim The lights, so fluorescent I’m feeling so heavy The pressure The pressure Eyes are watching and narrowing slowly My slow descent inwards is quickly unfolding A trigger just pulled A punch in the gut and I’m down I am falling into an attack Oh the sights are sublime I’m passing high over hills and a lake in the sky There’s a light I can see There it is now I’m passing over No, I’m passing out! Wait a minute Don’t lose your shit The moment is passing now...isn’t it? Low light pressure Fluorescently falling Unsteady in movement I’m sugar I’m heavy Obscene to observe with words so caressing I’m feeling so happy At present At present Eyes are narrowing slowly and wishing my quick descent downwards would end suddenly Loss takes an age, an age to advance And we’re down We are failing to stop the attack No, the sights are a lie An attack If I pull at the screen will it show me what’s real There’s a light I can see There it is now I’m passing over Yeah, I’m passing out Wait a minute Don’t lose your shit The moment is over now...isn’t it?

A pixelated portrait A space invaded and you crying Avoid Avoid Avoid the CRT A stranger talking Who the fuck is she? Asphyxiated? No We couldn’t breathe Suffocated and fearful of a screen A void A void is inside you They want removal We want to start anew It’s pixelated It’s pixelated It’s pixelated I can't forget the CRT Image Burn

Can I rearrange your memories? Take a bit out Wipe it clean There’s no need for you to worry about it all Forget what was done and what you saw When it comes I will be there for you There was so much we never knew If I could give the soul a remedy to heal and repair, I’d feel at ease But nothing helps when you’re so far in the black You need to be here I need you back When you come I will be here for you Can you rearrange my memories? I’m feeling it now, the slow unease When it comes will you be able for the pain? I’m losing you now I’m losing you Until it comes we’ll be dead to light It never was or ever right I'm coming for you, I'm coming. For you, I'm coming

When I woke in the morning, with a look, a warning, I could tell you might be a disaster I steered clear for a while but returned with a smile at the sound and the pull of your laughter So, now I’m ashamed I saw past your pain and saw only my dour reflection It was me all along A sad boy with a song Please forgive my imperfections Just for a minute or two we were three

Loess 03:21
The loss isn't real if you don't talk about it You forget how to feel the hurt and the pain So you stay in your head and you won't talk about how you’re emotionally dead There’s no way to save a mind in exile There's no real pain What loss? We're men There's no real way to connect again The loss isn’t real if you don’t talk about it The loss isn’t real if you keep it inside

Seven minutes passed in a flash, as the sun dappled light down on to the dash Glasses on your eyes to hide a sadness and anger in your heart I couldn’t look into your eyes It was a monumental change to our life Hearts torn and plans to set aside I knew then I’d be present in your future Heaven is a lie so far gone When you’re just about to die will you hear its song? A backing track of laughs and sly derision sung by a choir of fools Look me in the eye I couldn’t look into your eyes as the sun dappled light on the dash Those seven minutes passed in a flash A heart got torn and sent into your future Heaven is a lie so far gone When you’re just about to die will you hear its song? Heaven is a lie so far gone When you’re just about to die will you hear its song? Heaven...Die! Seven minutes pass in a flash and the weight is all we feel, crushing us down I couldn’t look into your eyes The shame was too much for the sorrow inside I couldn’t look into your eyes My failure a presence we couldn’t avoid I couldn’t look into your eyes Our hearts were asunder The greatest divide I couldn’t look into your eyes Heaven is a lie so far gone When you’re just about to die will you hear its song?

We were up We were high in a cloudless amber sky Deaf to death and dumb as kites Singing soundless children’s rhymes

Ultrasound 02:27
I was the boy who never grew up Cast in the mold of his makers Not enough water, not enough love Broken at stem and withered above They planted a seed and said their goodbyes Now I'll never leave this city As the distance increased the sadness arrived A life for a life is a lie for a lie I hear the ultrasound washing over me I hear the ultrasound play a melody no one else can hear
