about

"It manages to tell the tale of that most surreal and ambling journey, remaining firmly planted in the present while at the same time boundlessly moving forward, unstoppable as life. It is BRAEVES' arduously crafted design that gives this ode to a drifting trajectory the capacity to soar." - Audiofemme

Track Name: Guest of the Gun
Bright and burning throne
You were born hysterical
You pacify your hours to cope
Nirvana at the end of your rope
You're the guest of the gun
One for all and all for none
We're models of a mass attention
In bottles for your mass production

All the other gods are forgiving, but you never prayed enough
Redder than the blood on your ribbon, but you never bled enough
Walking with your eyes on the ceiling, till you break the pattern up
Temple of the heart that you're filling, filling up

Sentinel of your soul
You are so intangible
You pacify your hours to cope
Nirvana at the end of your rope

You're the guest of the gun
One for all and all for none
We're models of a mass attention
In bottles for your mass production

All the other gods are forgiving, but you never prayed enough
Redder than the blood on your ribbon, but you never bled enough
Walking with your eyes on the ceiling, till you break the pattern up
Temple of the heart that you're filling, filling up

Falling in, falling in, the perfect prey
You'll never play
Track Name: Talk Like Strangers
We took our logic and threw it overboard
Circled it like sharks smelling blood in the water
You hallucinate yourself the perfect lover
Dressed with best intention, dripping with another

All disarmed, the faded charm
Watching as we fall apart
Lost and drifting off until you're gone

We talk like strangers with empty story lines
Stare right through each other, then on to the next lie
Ooh, hallucinate yourself the perfect lover
Dressed with best intention, dripping with another

All disarmed, the faded charm
Watching as we fall apart
Lost and drifting off until you're gone

Rising tide of vague replies
Pulling the scales out from my eyes
I'm not the anchor this time.

(Circled it like sharks smelling blood in the water)
Track Name: Souls in Transit
Every day's the same, till the sun eclipses
Your divisive ways and your cruel convictions
Oh, this masquerade for a foolish vision
Left you wandering for a new addiction

Chasing after ghosts in your bed
Reaching out like souls in transit
Shadows in your arms, floating like a weight in water

Closer than you think, to an old solution
Since the wars we make only fuel pollution
Shake my soul awake when my color's faded
I'm so out of sync, you're so elevated

Chasing after ghosts in your bed
Reaching out like souls in transit
Shadows in your arms, floating like a weight in water
Track Name: Iron Hands
Iron hands move slow
Soft as metal, I'm alive but I'm barely hanging on
If my skin should rust from the rain and sun
I'll shed my layers till their gold

Days grow fast, and distance has a cost
Lakes of glass, Drifting by Design

Iron legs drag on
You're supplement of faded charms, won't hold out for very long
Heavy lungs breathe slow
Voice corroded from the flood of the beast that you've become

Days grow fast, and distance has a cost
Lakes of glass, Drifting by Design
Track Name: While Your Body Sleeps
While your body sleeps, all your dreams repeat
They fall to the back of your heart
All defenses with your eyes wide shut

Re-wire

Meditation's daughter
You're still treading water
Why bother with all the ashes of all you left behind to level out?

Re-wire

You give and you cut with your eyes wide shut
Shapes of your soul and your broken gut

Re-wire
