Track Name: Dealings In Astra
We all lie to each till the stones collide with light that she bends

We see the trails, the channels of gloom
Holes in my brain, take the loose ends off me
Threat of discord, can't reenter the same door
Preach of false love, sound in scriptures of old

Burning time won't protect me anymore

We all lie to each, burning time, saving face to a bedroom tease
Uncle sam can't do anything with the light that she bends

A curse will rise, dispel all relief
The underskies will never hold ruin
Our entrails are steamed to a pleasant disgust
Taste the sweet essence of never repeat
Track Name: Dark Hand
Strong - pulse in my vein
Shake Loose - picking at the skin
I Seek - the rattle and dread

Can't keep the threat from closing in
Being punished for my sin
From behind death echoes
Crawling further, clawing hope

Embrace - chosen from the crib
Snatched - by a dark hand
I Grow - with the shadow
Track Name: Beach Party
Lay away, away
Sleep all day
Lay away

All that's real is glam and pretty
Caught under heel, such a pity
All holed up in Star City

I love the sight, I love the vision
Secret Isle keeps on driftin'
You hold the key around your neck

Can you feel?

Drying on the driftwood bank
Crashing clean with every wake

Can you feel?

The longing gaze, hand in hand
Finding bones kept under the sand
Track Name: Wrapped Up in the Hustle
I'm stoned, when I know
Can't find the time to get to 'em all, but I try
Those folks who know say you don't see the risk this far deep in the hole

Kung fu leaps get you a start
If it helps chasing pricks through the park
Dude needs a front, trips on the fee
Well that don't agree with street policy

I'm so wrapped up in the hustle
Got to know just who to please
I'm so wrapped up in the hustle
Have to run, got to meet them needs

Picking up, kicking the stones
Waiting on the word I came here to score
Blowing up, keep the leeches on hold
Running uptown, downtown, anywhere ya wanna go

I hold a case, bills got 'em marked
Looking over shoulder to spot a shark
If I go down hard, shame won't be mine
Say it ain't no crime when you're running on your last dime
Track Name: Canyon Talisman
Riding down the ---
Climbing razorback
Flying down the crying Witch's eye
Buggy won't turn back

And when we fly
Down the Witch's eye
I'll be here in the dirt, man
Buggy won't turn back

Canyon Talisman

Pocket full of shrooms
Rally speeding through
Burnin' tracks
Left to milk a cactus

Ahh as we fly
Rounding laps in hell
It's time to bust a cig and a knife, now
It's a dangerous playground

Canyon Talisman
