Track Name: Great Divide
For S.L.

Standing still at the edge of me
Blue boy and the deep dark sea
Staring into the abyss of my keep

Golden noose tied around his neck
Cursing tongues underneath his breath
Fairly certain this will be his end here

"I won't let you decide my fate!
This way and not some other way!

In the great divide!
In the great divide!
In the great divide!"

His chrysalis spirals Universe B

He says he's never coming back again,
Takes a deep breath, then he jumps right in
The cold stabbing waves breaking his bones

Undercurrent drags him deep in me
He floats unconscious
Lungs are strangling
My love/carrion made his way home

"I won't let you decide my fate!
This way and not some other way!

In the great divide!
In the great divide!
In the great divide!"

His chrysalis spirals Universe B

"I won't let you decide my fate!
This way and not some other way!
I won't let you decide my fate!
THIS WAY AND NOT SOME OTHER WAY!

In the great divide!
In the great divide!
In the great divide!"
Track Name: Ricochet
Feel the ricochets of what we call mankind
The light's so bright, they say it makes them all go blind
Promises they make yet do not see them through
So, live your life your way
This shit's all up to you

Or....Are you afraid of yourself?
Fear...is the road paved straight to hell

Illusion
Deceit
Religion

I've seen lightning strikes, death, wars, and tidal waves
I've seen hypocrites dancing on dead men's graves
I've seen Jesus save them throw us to the wolves
Wolves with purer hearts just howling at the moon

But...Are you afraid of yourself?
Fear...is the road paved straight to hell

Illusion
Deceit
Religion

Take the chaos and then turn it to creation
Take the stones they throw and melt it into gold
Take the pain you feel and let it make you stronger
Just watch them bullets fly, they ricochet

Ricochet

RICOCHET!
Track Name: The Preying Kind
The sigils, stone temples,
Burnt candles, bones, orgasmic sighs
Her moon, and his son, and
The cross, the word, and all its lies

The flame, and the darkness,
The sea, abyss, and my third eye
Destruction, creation,
The blood we spill just to survive

We prey!
We kill!
We are the preying kind

We pray!
We kneel!
We are the praying...

For all the secrets spoken
The truth that covered up the lies
And all we promised broken
Did all we could just to get by
For all the vultures circling
Waiting for the big kill inside
For all the hands we've shaken
Crooked smiles all in thin disguise

We prey!
We kneel!
We are the preying kind

We pray!
We kneel!
We are the praying kind

The praying kind
The praying kind

The PREYING!
