Track Name: Buffalo
In gummy lips
We hide soft teeth
Our fins collapse
Our lobes retreat

The poison takes
I guess there goes our teeth
This rot has got us bad
It's alright

We left our homes
We turned our backs
We laid our babes
To the howling packs
We said our rites
We made our vows
We broke them all

The poison takes
I guess there goes our teeth
This rot has got us bad
It's alright

We ate our young
In tender steaks
We laid our farms
On a massive flame
When the buffalo
Finally came home
We cooked them too

Oh, we cooked them too
When the buffalo
Finally came home
We cooked them too
Track Name: All of Them
We swim in pools of leaking batteries
New worlds shaped by old diaries
Closer now to the drowning sun
Than we ever were to the hotter one

On display in amber blocks
Hot but trimmed by permafrost
Now we're moved by most anything
Bloody feet, wallets, and shark teeth

Sink, sink, galaxies, microchips, everything

Sink, sink, pyramids, rock n roll, everything

All of them
All of them
All of them
Dead
Track Name: Repaired
Strange new centuries begin
Cold hooks piercing through our skin
Sparks still smolder in our hair
Oh Lord knows we weren't prepared
We weren't prepared

This was where we came to be repaired

Workers glowing in their suits
Oh Lord maybe it's the fumes
In this engine of despair
Nothing human will be spared
Will be spared

Of course it isn't fair
They plucked out all our hair
And this was where we came to be repaired

This was where we came to be repaired
Track Name: Vacant Lots
Buildings up and walk away
Dead to what we want to say
Buildings up and walk away

Strip malls put their jackets on
Water towers looking on
Strip malls put their jackets on

Statues lace up running shoes
Funeral homes sing the blues
Statues lace up running shoes

Piers out strolling on the beach
California's moving east
Piers out strolling on the beach

Vacant lots are
Waking up and
Starting to wonder
Track Name: Keep Sinking
We level churches but the verses keep ringing out
We flatten headstones but the bodies keep sinking down
We level churches to provoke more ringing
We flatten headstones but the bodies keep sinking
Track Name: Coffins
Bathe in the microwave waves we discover
The ruins that rise from the ash just to crumble
Gathering scraps from their factory floors
Beings that don't need our breath anymore

We stand in shifts
To sew them closed
They'll never know
Into a dark
Place they forgot
That's where we'll go

Down in the mines where the bright toxins glow
Skeletons made up in delicate poses
Now they can surface and shake their parts free
Now they can splinter and shatter and leave

Tell all the textbooks
Call all the coffins
We're here to raise dead animals and then stuff them

Paging the phone books
Ringing small bells
These are the sirens they sing to themselves
Track Name: Fire Sale
We woke up to the awful sound
Of clanking in our ears canal
Clanking in our ear canals

They took us to a sterile room
Pumped us full of vacuum tubes
Pumped us full of vacuum tubes

Do you need a fresh set of lungs?
Would you like a new way to breathe?

We line up with our mismatched limbs
Singing just remembered hymns
Singing just remembered hymns
No one should deny themselves
A slow drink from a scavenged mouth
A slow drink from a scavenged mouth hey!

Do you need a fresh set of lungs?
Would you like a new way to breathe?
Track Name: Dead Pistons
We raise
Our feeble cries to the clatter
But the din
Is far too dense to know
So back
In
To
Our
Holes
We go

Slow mechanic breath into our all too animal skin
We'd believe in anything
To make dead pistons pump again
Slow mechanic breath into our all too animal skin
We'd believe in anything

There are surges and shocks but mostly we feel consistent
Arthritis racks our most insignificant bones
Back
In
To
Our
Holes
We go

Slow mechanic breath into our all too animal skin
We'd believe in anything
To make dead pistons pump again
Slow mechanic breath into our all too animal skin
We'd believe in anything

To make dead pistons pump again
