Track Name: Somewhere between good enough and will do
instrumental, poem by Jack Kerouac.
Track Name: Miles of Engagement
feet fixed to the gas, burning rubber as faces pass. losing sight, try as I might, but I can't stop making miles. one quick stop, to rest our weary minds and get back up and go, yeah we gotta go. woke up next to edina, desmond dekker on the radio, but we gotta go, we gotta go. liquid chances slipping from hands, burning fate and staying up late. way too late past our bedtimes. and I can't stop and I can't sleep till everything I know and am is far behind me. one quick stop, to rest our weary minds and get back up and go, yeah we gotta go. woke up next to edina, desmond dekker on the radio, but we gotta go, we gotta go. crazy antics, table dances, way too late past our bedtimes. crazy antics, table dances, way too late past our bedtimes. crazy antics, table dances, way too late past our bedtimes. liquid chances slipping from hands, burning fate and staying up late, way too late past our bedtimes. and I can't stop and I can't sleep till everything I know and am is far behind me.
Track Name: The fourty-hour clockwork
I shed all my skin to pay the dues, rubbing off like lick-and-peel tattoos. sometimes things need to be cruel (to see through). but when the cost to keep up with that beat weighs more than scraping the remnants off the street, I might just leave it be. clocking a 40 hour week of straight up standards makes me feel like I've missed out on a life desired. but still I desire (stagnant clouds above my head). all that's been prior (are pouring on this parade). got me so uninspired (forever tangled up with me). that I might as well cease fire and retire. sometimes I doubt, all the time, without a pause, the constrained life of unnatural desires. but still I desire (stagnant clouds above our heads). all that's been prior (are pouring on our parade). got me so uninspired (forever tangled up with me). that I might as well cease-fire and retire.
Track Name: Northern Light Part II
we rode around town passing through red lights, in and out of time, these days we need to get by and recover from a handful of mistakes we made. forcing ourselves, hoping we’ll all stay the same. our views have changed so much, so different from before. (with our) feet set to run from the heat underneath the floor. followed the tracks in every direction that they’ve gone, not sure if I'm hoping you'll be on this road. some board up their houses, to cover up their loss, but life is better now, in the eye of the storm. here we are burning the roadmap to our lives, looking for water in a desert, just to prove we’re right. scraping knees on the asphalt street, and never felt more alive, now that it all bleeds. some board up their houses, to cover up their loss, but life is better now, in the eye of the storm. sticking out our necks just to feel the rush. diving head-first into the ground and feel the concrete crush.
Track Name: Karma police, open up!
lately I've been dreaming of old faces, coming down on me like ice-cold rain. taking me along these doleful places where we have always wandered on nights like these. well those smiles were a masquerade, left a hole that can’t be patched. we put our shoulders to the wheel and worn-out echoes sounded through the moment. karma puts me out to bleed because I have an urge to fuck up (I have an urge to fuck up). karma puts me out for everyone to see, until everything is ashes to the ground. one discord in a terraced house stung and might have injured you violently. maybe it happened because you were bleeding out but I regret every blister that I've earned from running and never looking back. karma puts me out to bleed, gallow’s noose around my neck, nowhere to turn my back. karma puts me out for everyone to see til everything is ashes to the ground.
