i've framed your face in flames and i'm painting you red, love. let's clarify this twist, pin this butterfly kiss. senseless senses sweetly simplify. we twitch like marionettes in lascivious bliss. silhouette, silhouette, how black is your heart? what you leave out, leave out: the linchpin of a liar's art. surely half-right, here in half-light, all sincerity, and i don't want to see the half-way conscious game that's evading all blame, love, for everything we want with no right to expect. like a life somewhere, someplace that murders time, or a love that lets you take just what you can get. so i frame your face in flames and i swallow regret, love. when everything's so wrong, why spin it to right? oblivion is lovely, that's no lie. we're atmosphere, we're oblivion personified. silhouette, silhouette, who's broken your heart? what they leave out, leave out: the linchpin of a liar's art. surely half-right, here in half-light, serendipity makes the pitiful play a love song with no love in it, in a rhythm so indefinite, just strumming on our nerves. silhouette, silhouette, how black is your heart? what you leave out, leave out: the linchpin of a liar's art. surely half-right, here in half-light, all sincerity.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
