Trouble 04:26
I wasn't looking for -- Trouble found me It rests with eyes and words, for now my treachery Does the young planet know the force with which she pulls Who can blame two bodies for obeying gravity? Yes there are things that can't be undone But neither can they be unsaid; you can't be unwanted Knowing well that this could be the crisis Despite admonishments I remain undaunted Now I'm poised to fall the final distance into your arms The path of least resistance and the most harm I always get what I ask for But never know what I want So when I asked for it Trouble found me It lives in flesh and bone, our treachery I won't ask the lioness to change her nature However merciless, however bloody This is not the first secret, it won't be the last I see all the future tears as if they've already passed As if it's already known For now, we keep it close I ask again, my friend -- Trouble find me Remind me how it feels, my treachery

Habit 03:46
've got that teenage feeling A whole lot of good it does me Part of the allure was I didn't know What I was getting into But I can't break the habit of you Though I say I want to Oh I need one more rendezvous -- then I'll quit This nasty habit of you You still haunt my mind with everything you said All the things you liked about me went to my head As we walked down the street eating ice cream With every bite it got harder to stop Oh, now I can't stop, I can't stop And now I can't break the habit of you I need one more rendezvous Then I'll quit this habit of you I still need something to sink my teeth into I can't break the habit of you Oh I might say how much I want to

The Keys 03:36
With a promise to set me free From the cage I'd locked myself into He appeared with many keys How could I refuse? These golden bars they hold perfection But were chosen by mistake (mistake) Comfort would be my tomb I had to run away (he led me away) Waking in the morning, my head upon his chest The paradox abundantly clear This love attacked so fierce: it will decay like all the rest There is nothing to be gained here As lust turns to need all the promise is destroyed Need turns to possession Each little victory only noise So I have returned to my cage But now I hold the keys And I will use them Anytime I please

The damage was done preemptively Blame the force of these memories Abstain all you want you can't shake your hold on me Though you won't call me -- you play it right Still my mind lingers in those nights And you don't have to try to twist that knife But if I look back I'll turn into a pillar of If I look back I'll turn into a pillar of If I look back I'll turn into a pillar of salt-- Not since the days of boys' tyranny Over my heart was I so weak Yet you see I would love to beg at your feet But if I look back I'll turn into a pillar of If I look back I'll turn into a pillar of If I look back I'll turn into a pillar of salt-

I think a lot about all the things that I have broken I look around at what remains, hoping If I turn away will I be submerged in regretting Or will I succeed in forgetting For too long I've wanted a forbidden kiss to force me to decision Chaos of lust is unstoppable and I am made of pure destruction All epiphanies are false and my sweet words might never mean a thing But I vacillate between two choices and a third could break the swing I will win either way I choose But either way I also lose I am adrift, I can't decide Whose desire to satisfy: his, yours or mine Those who don't fear me want me In this city full of men Can I say no to them for you? Can I say no to you for them?

Duplicity 05:21
When it comes time to confess this duplicity Will I say that that is not the real me? The seduced and romantic girl is Not the opposing nature I hide You should be afraid of this un-needing side Right now I don't need you at all And I am planning to take complete control Never fearing solitude I see her future leading armies Conquering the world easily This self knows you are the biggest threat To subsume my passions, to subtly dominate To call out the part of me that needs completion To make me her-as-object Part of a pair, inextricably linked If I didn't have someone like you Would I spend all my time wanting it? Because this honesty compels me to say I don't quite want it now that it's mine I will fight for my rights to her body To her time and her ability to speak I don't want to say what we had was deception -- She believed every minute As I stood by, waiting for my chance to end it

about

This is the album that rapidly crystallized while my marriage abruptly dissolved in the Summer of 2008. Production is a little rough on these tracks; some have been reworked on The Keys, some will be reworked on Casualties (Spring 2009.) I only pressed 100 physical copies of the disc with the artwork, and those are all gone.
