Squelch EP Lyrics




Here are the lyrics for Cassmark's Squelch EP (2010):


*** Pyrosa *** (Words & Music by Jim Louie)

Still in your dreams
Unfair it seems
An unknown state
Lifetime relate

Caring too much for
Reasons for healing or
Pressure to make it more
What is it you adore
Corner of the room
Know just where I loom
Guessing I assume
There in heart then in doom

Round in doubt
So devout
All's about
Never seeing it throughout

Pyrosa should be left for fame
Become the love that you exclaim
Set rules made into a game
Recognize them all the same

Still in your dreams
Unfair it seems
An unknown state
Lifetime relate

Pyrosa never left a flame
Surrendered love without an aim
Set rules fit inside a frame
Recognize nothing here's the same


*** Squelch *** (Words & Music by Jim Louie)

Took a lot to meet you friend
Made a fold caused by a bend
Wanted by a need
Taken as a form of greed

Down to a sliver
I could not deliver
They'll intertwine
Gives it a lasting shine
Starting to end
A start that we depend
To keep our form
Seasons temper what is warm
Fools relive all the norm
The past is just a brainstorm

Squelch and consider
Squelch and deliver

Took a friend to reembark
Questions left in the dark
Started from a seed
Following learn to lead

Down to a sliver
I could not deliver
They'll intertwine
Gives it a lasting shine
Starting to end
A start that we depend
To keep our form
Seasons temper what is warm
Fools relive all the norm
The past is just a brainstorm

Squelch and consider
Squelch and deliver

Share my friend it's overdue
Take a stand and follow through
Wanted by a need
Follow learn to lead


*** Cavity *** (Words & Music by Jim Louie)

I'm whisper stricken
Your breath it thickens
There's something major
I'd like to wager

I'll stay on chase
Locked in and just in case
You're torn on fear
Won't stop what will appear
Caught in a phase
As if you've left today's
Uneven tilt

Fairytale past you live
Everything I couldn't give
Fairytale past you live
Everything I couldn't give
Surfacing tried and true
Onward to something new
Collective past ensue
You're right but it's not true

Overexposed
Your high my low of lows
Try tried again
Now turning into then
Glass overfilled
As if you've meant to spill
Uneven tilt

I'm whisper stricken
Your breath it thickens
There's something major
I'd like to wager

Fairytale past you live
Everything I couldn't give
Fairytale past you live
Everything I couldn't give
Surfacing tried and true
Onward to something new
Collective past ensue
You're right but it's not true
Surfacing tried and true
Onward to something new
Collective past ensue
You're right but it's not true


*** Yet *** (Words & Music by Jim Louie)

Here's one for me
Could not believe
How long it's been
Effortlessly often

Smiling ribbon special rarity
Set aside by my own vanity
Thinking all be well come clarity
Often let down by humanity

Escaping from
Everything's glum
Let's count on slack
All we need is all we lack
Still will surround
Common sense to keep you bound
Should have just laughed
Find some friends make it a craft

Never let it follow
Inside out so hollow
Cannot stop to borrow
Look back come tomorrow
Never let it never follow
Inside out inside so hollow
Couldn't stop can't stop to borrow
Looking back coming tomorrow

There's one for you
Broken in two
Alas not yet
Some things to never set

Smiling ribbon special rarity
Set aside by my own vanity
Thinking all be well come clarity
Often let down by humanity
Smiling ribbon welcomes clarity
Set aside by your own sanity
Thinking all be well come charity
Often let down by my vanity


*** Thwart *** (Words & Music by Jim Louie)

Have a clue just what you mean
Thrust along the open scene
In a dream it seemed serene
Reminds me of that Halloween

There's a penny in the dirt
Wishful thinking led to hurt
Thwarted by could not revert
Sounded silence your alert

Yesterday you should stay
Crawling in the sand
Where are they slip away
Losing all command
Momentarily could not stand
When do we possibly
Fall in demand

Momentarily
Momentarily
Momentarily
Momentarily

Had a view just what you'd seen
Saw it in a dirty screen
In a dream it rendered clean
Thrust along the in-between

There are plenty in the dirt
Wishing thoughts they would not hurt
Thwarted by could not revert
Abandoning to make desert

Yesterday you should stay
Crawling in the sand
Where are they slip away
Losing all command
Momentarily could not stand
When do we possibly
Fall in demand

Momentarily
Momentarily
Momentarily
Momentarily

Yesterday you should stay
Crawling in the sand
Where are they slip away
Losing all command
Momentarily could not stand
Thrust in demand


*** Function *** (Words & Music by Jim Louie)

Sometimes but not always
Never wanted to stay
Choices they were delayed
Have you been forced to bring
Refreshment in the spring
Settle for anything

Catch up exaggerate
Believe that you create
What it is you deserve
I'd like to numb a nerve
That step it's awfully steep
Had to make that leap
Too low to dive in deep
Function best while asleep
It's there that I can reap

Sometimes but not always
Never wanted to stay
Choices they were delayed
Have you been forced to bring
Refreshment in the spring
Settle for anything

Squander instead of spur
Postponed delays preferred
Impatiently occur
Functional as you were

Function best while asleep
It's there that I can reap

Catch up exaggerate
Believe that you create
What it is you deserve
I'd like to numb a nerve
That step it's awfully steep
Had to make that leap
Too low to dive in deep
Function best while asleep

Squander instead of spur
Postponed delays preferred
Impatiently occur
Functional as you were
