Track Name: Akrasia
The obligation stands and the will never resolves. Weakness of will. Invent desired norms and the will comes henceforth. Weakness of will. Let’s design this model and the dilemma is put forth.

It tends to all reside. Norms and alibis. I’m put in an awkward place. I’m obligated to build a model I defend. The dilemma hardly wanes. It’s built upon the plain. My desires, no constraint. I’ll justify the ends to build a model I defend. The consequences have no end. I’ll desire contradictions.

I’m obligated to resolve the weakness that I thought was gone. Constructed to ameliorate contingent events that I have no words for.

You do not share this view. The norms fail to be true. Project and externalize. I’m obligated to build a model I defend. The dilemma has reached its end. I’m slowly forming a bend. The fork has its place. I’ll justify the ends to build a model I defend. The consequences have no end. I’ll desire contradictions.
Track Name: Parallel Forms
Strike down and pocketed. Not forced out, disinterested.
Weakened, the paths cannot be crossed. Succumb to it. Monochrome and disparate. Trace the forms, they’ll not be sought. Omnipotent, overreach their blemishes. Weakened, the paths cannot be crossed.

Subtext--it’s all lost. In dispute--call it off.

Parallel, the forms will write themselves. Weakened, the paths cannot be crossed.Obstinate, argue from a neutral stance. Trace the forms, they’ll not be sought. Omnipotent, overreach their blemishes.

I tried and I failed to amend. Project and retract to no end. I tried and I failed to suspend. Judgment, to retrieve for no end. You know you’re better than them. I quiver and I shake to no end.

Intractable, let’s call it off.
Don’t contradict. It’s tentative, let’s call it off. Don’t contradict. Omnipotent, don’t overreach it.
Track Name: Discount the Future
Forget that you're one of them. Temporal parts are part of him.

Subtracts their lives, remote effects in time. Confident it's criminal, tomorrow.Discount welfare, discount their lives. Consume it all--it's your right. You claim you're blameless, then so am I. Diminish and languish.

Leave broken glass to find. Your intentions are transfixed on temporal slices that don't exist. Consume it all-- it's your right. You claim you're blameless to justify your life.

Subtract their lives. Let's redo the damage, it's par for the course. Remote in time. I'm a thief in the crowd and the court.

Rebuild, repugnant and cold. You said I'm a hypocrite. I want it all at their expense. Time constraints will justify, they don't exist beyond my eyes. We know as much to quantify, a diminution in valued time. Time constraints will justify, their welfare is scattered in time.
Track Name: Transmarinus
Redefine, hide the shadows. Don’t regret, through the window.
Transatlantic foe. Escarpment and the fault. Sediment and rest. Continental shelf.
Erode--carve the sandstone, and fold.
Ambiguity is my life raft. I am sinking, in a cul de sac.
Redefine, this ordered sequence. Platitude, it’s economical.
In the vagueness, I’m the faulter. Porcelain sandstone, the sea has altered.
Track Name: Explanatory Gap
I needed it substantive. I should have said it’s futile. Intractable and amend. Lingering on to no end. Cognitively bent. I should have seen it coming. Explain it away for me. The solution is daunting.

Withstand the torment, indecisive. I should have made decisions. Vacuous, self-deprecating. It’s my way dealing with the causal chain.

Resolute is my choice, for these truths have yet to be disclosed. Cognitively closed to this problem. Pragmatism--it will take control.

Then they said, the gap is closing, then they said. Then they said, it’s watered down, then they said.

It’s unknown. It’s for our own. The gap will close for only those.
