"Ephemeral Artery" as written by and Alan Palomo....
Seeming stripped of all the faults that you possessed
You possessed to impress

Tilted facades are a losing game at best
Shattered face, scattered hands, ? trust, still displaced

Let it spill onto the street
I've no way ? incomplete

You know my thoughts aren't hard to teach
Hard to teach
Hard to teach
Hard to teach
Hard to teach
Ah

Broken mirror shards laid out and re-arranged
Still the same just re-framed

And best reflections you're expecting to receive
The one you seek doesn't ring any bells, so to speak

Let it spill onto the street
I've no way ? incomplete

You know my thoughts aren't hard to teach
Hard to teach
Hard to teach
Hard to teach
Hard to teach
Ah

Let it spill onto the street
I've no way ? incomplete

And ? obsolete
Incomplete
Incomplete
Incomplete
Incomplete

    Lyric Correction** correct lyrics from cd booklet **

    seeming stripped of all the faults that youv'e assessed
    you're possessed
    to impress
    jilted facades are a losing game at best
    your shadowed face
    scattered hands
    timid shrugs still displaced

    Let it spill onto the street
    either way we're incomplete (ah)
    you know it doesn't hurt to cheat
    hurt to cheat
    hurt to cheat
    hurt to cheat (ah)

    broken mirror shards layed out and rearranged
    still the same
    just reframed
    inverse reflection you're expecting to receive
    but whon you seek
    doesn't ring
    any bells so to speak

    let it spill onto the street
    either way we're incomplete (ah)
    you know it doesn't hurt to cheat
    hurt to cheat
    hurt to cheat
    hurt to cheat (ah)

    General CommentCould this song be about letting loose and living life fully no matter how much failure you face? I especially get that vibe from the line, "Let it spill onto the street, either way we're incomplete." It's basically saying to be who you know you are, either way we'll always be in a constant state of change, never perfect.

    General CommentThink this is it? With above mentioned corrections, and I think the first (???) is Timid? And end section than complete x4 instead of incomplete?

    seeming stripped of all the faults that you possessed
    you possessed...to impress

    tilted facades are a losing game at best
    shattered face, scattered hands, timid trust, still displaced

    let it spill onto the street
    either way we’re incomplete

    you know my thoughts aren't hard to teach
    hard to teach
    hard to teach
    hard to teach
    hard to teach
    ahhh

    broken mirror shards laid out and re-arranged
    still the same...just re-framed

    and best reflections you're expecting to receive
    the one you seek doesn't ring any bells, so to speak

    let it spill onto the street
    either way we’re incomplete

    you know my thoughts aren't hard to teach
    hard to teach
    hard to teach
    hard to teach
    hard to teach
    ahhh

    let it spill onto the street
    either way we’re incomplete

    and I’d rather be obsolete, than complete
    than complete
    than complete
    than complete
    than complete

    General CommentThis song is the greatest!

    I'm pretty sure the last bit is 'I am waiting incomplete and I'd rather be obsolete then complete.'
