Track Name: Frisson: Overture
I'll take this frisson
As a measure of truth
I miss the shivers of an
Artless heart and beat

This exquisite pain
just won't die tonight
Please let me be to
Live my life in flight

Close your eyes and let go
Close your eyes and let go
Track Name: Strawberry Cream Soda
On a hot summer's day
You're My favorite getaway
Your kisses cool me off
With every taste, My sweet escape
I just can't get enough
So I wrote this song for You my dear
To show you how I've come
Slightly undone

You are my strawberry cream soda
The sweetest thing I have ever touched my lips upon
And I have no regret of who I am in your darling arms, for
You are my strawberry cream soda

On a cold winter's day
You're my favorite serenade
Your red lips keep me young
My love for you unsung
I just can't get enough
So I wrote this song for You my dear
To show you how I've come
Slightly undone

You are my strawberry cream soda
The sweetest thing I have ever touched my lips upon
And I have no regret of who I am in your darling arms, for
You are my strawberry cream soda
Track Name: La Doleur Exquise
I smell the want in my eyes
It's eating me alive, it's tearing me apart
Ghost thoughts
Inside my cactus mind I am reminded that
My body aches, it wants you
I want you

Go forth and desire
Now watch your soul bleed and choke
Go forth and perspire
Let be, let go, and let ghost

This exquisite pain just simply won't go away
It latches on, these ghost thoughts
Despite my trembling sight
I am reminded that my body needs
And craves you, it craves you

Go forth and desire
Now watch your soul bleed and choke
Go forth and perspire
Let be, let go, and let ghost

Go forth and aspire
I am the still I'm not
Go forth and perspire
Let be, let go, and let ghost
Track Name: Blarshp
Sleep tight to the nightmares
That'll lay at your mouth in disgrace
Eating away at your so called dreams
That you'll never chase
You're a liar, a fickle, a fake to your name
You leave those around you a certain distaste
Cave in, let your chest attain the cavities
That have plagued your mouth
Resist, resist, your soul and hands are useless
Your body's to rot in this bed
God can't help you anymore for
I am Immaculate,
I am god

How did you find me?
My cycling solace
Tantalize my dreams
My nightmares horrid
When will you bend/break me?
My body soul-less
Catalyze the seams
We will not sleep tonight

Ay amour me voy de aquí
Prefiero morir
Ay amour me voy de aqui
Prefiero dormir

How did you find me?
My cycling solace
Tantalize my dreams
My nightmares horrid
When will you bend/break me?
My body soul-less
Catalyze the seams
We will not sleep tonight

You're nobody
My soul is the captain and slumbering
You're no one, nowhere near God
You are none other, no one but we.
Track Name: Desahogo
Again, I'm sorry I know this will come off a bit rude
But my veins and esophagus are ready to tell the truth
For now is the time to finally let heal and let sooth
Because I became the bitterest of sad depressed prudes
As I was starting to ball/bawl up like a coward and cry like a mange
My dreams were ruined, they began to dry and estrange
Sobbing over the loss of my once-golden hands
My eyes became daft and feeble like the sand
Underneath my feet when OCD kicked and kicked in
When OCD kicked and kicked in
Tongue-tied and oh so feverish
I think of all the things that have lead me to this season/reason
For now I can't seem to keep on keeping on
The speaking of the spleen that keeps seeping on

Now I can't seem to keep on keeping on
The speaking of the spleen that keeps seeping on
Whenever you break it to me that we need a break because
Our hearts keep shaking but mine's the only one to take the hint
That there is something more than what I thought 'cause
You wanted the shackles free when I just needed to breathe
In and out... (like a paraphernalia spout)
With the junkies that stand erect and stout
Unlike my soul that had been ravished throughout the thrice of time
That was always supposed to be truly only mine
But guess what? It wasn't, it was for you and for we
Can't you see that the guts and the nuts and the bolts I spilt
Were for us three?
Time was aroused but wasted so in turn it wasted me
shattering all of my golden and swollen dreams

Break down this Summer bore with me
Screw it! Just let me see and be because
My skeletal frame was getting tested and queasy
For now I just ride around thinking about how I can't even get a digit
Because you stole my soul's bravado, you thrashed it and zipped it
My appendages were two too few to carry our gravity
So I became a lone ghost, numb and salivary
And I craved more than this beautiful plate and that became the issue
Whenever we had nothing left but scathed tissues but
I'll wipe away the tears and the fears that were left unnoticed
With all the migraines and pains that were left dead and ghosted
As the real time reel of time let's me come to the ground
I'll give myself and I'll give my Seven Pounds
Out to those who truly give a french about my organs, brains, and bones
I'll leave the thrice of us to know/no longer feel stupid, sad, or alone
Thank God and Allah you're out of my once-hollow chest
For you were draining more than once me and twice my zest

You stole my soul and then my home
I'm taking it back, I'm taking it all back
Through the floor, my ghost restored
I'm taking it back, I'm taking it all back
Track Name: Loon
You have saved me
From myself my dear
You are the one I have
Been waiting for

The Loon inside my soul
Has cried for you
Endeavors I thought would
Never Conclude

Who, oh who?
Can stop this reckless
You from this time
This rhyme right now

And just like that
The muses have you here
You are the one
I have been waiting for

You, oh you
Can stop this reckless
Loon from this time
This rhyme right now

You are my Loon
And I am your too
You are my Loon
And I am yours too
Track Name: Now Orion, Now...
I have finally hit this low
It's wonderful, it's terrible
But the sun shines on me

Wake up
The exquisite pain is over
Breathe it in
The god in us

Let this darkness leave my soul
Without the light I am not at home
Track Name: Frisson: Closure
This exquisite pain
just won't die tonight
Please let me be to
Live my life in flight

Close your eyes and let go
Close your eyes and let go
