Track Name: Fallen Sun
Fallen Sun

what would you say now

would you share your blood with me i'll share mine with you†

in love, we are in love
but nothing wouldn't tear so quickly
if i couldn't hear you

in the morning to come
you wouldn't deny
in love with the fallen one
you and i

what would you say now
would you tear apart with me
i'd tear apart with you

in love, we are in love
in longing but it fell so quickly
cause i couldn't hear you at all

in the morning to come
you wouldn't deny
in love with the fallen one
you and i

what would you say now

would you share your blood with me i'll share mine with you†

in love, we are in love
but nothing wouldn't tear so quickly
if i couldn't hear you

in the morning to come
you wouldn't deny
in love with the fallen one
you and i

Track Name: Holy Thought
Holy Thought

catch a fade of light
open up, arise
still high left inside
only find a smile
verity behind
out of sight out of mind
focus on the grim
bliss and back again
not so quick this time
ratify amend
reparation
now you got to empathize.

this is how i know my life will always be

in two wishes I
can reflect a wise
sapien pageantry
was a time when I
could be satisfied
only by supposing
think a holy though
cross examine not
carry on, then repeat
pisses on the floor
with the dinosaur
minotaur
and this is

this is how i know my life will always be
Track Name: Apple
Apple

you are an apple and i am mandaline
you have brought me to the doors again, found

you are the cat and i’m the dying rat you leave
that looks too good, another gift you put down

i am a window where you are blowing leaves around me
when you’ve got the keys to get by

so go and tear your wings if i am bound to leave
i’m leaving home, forgetting you to find a way today
i’m writing home

you are a candle i am carpet underneath
you’ve spilt upon but can’t afford to replace

i am the sand brushed off the outside of your jeans
but i am trapped inside your pocket space

you are the moment that is fallen into sync
from some alarm that triggered from a parked car

and it’s been tripped and floating in rhythm and in sync
moving in the air around my heart

you are the dust that’s floating weightless on the breeze
as you collect you make the edges look soft

i am the feather so obsessed with keeping clean
but stop and hesitate at brushing you off

you can tear your wings...
Track Name: Perfect Order
Perfect Order

you’ve got a way of making me feel alright
you’ve got a way of pulling me through tonight
you’ve got a way of saying ‘baby’ that erases one in you

girl you’ve got a way of turning the doom to light
you’ve got a way of sending in the edge of time
you’ve got a way of saying ‘baby’ that erases one in you

What then would you say?
Getting tired … need to get by
So suddenly
Dead men go into the light…
In the wake of everyone's sorrow

Trees are in the way
of what everyone saw

So we can't pretend again
So do and do again...

What the fuck are we waiting for?
Track Name: Holiday
Holiday

on the days that we were out wild
with hardly enough to buy bread
we were hazed by the night’s style
and rudely thrown out of our bed

followed on our walk
late for the road we were on
in the snow all around us
soaked all the way down to our bones

she’s just a holiday
one you could
easily steal me away

narrow, the eyes are
late to the show we arrived
she could tell when she saw us
we came from the outside
the other side

she’s just a holiday
one you could
easily steal me away from
Track Name: Father May I
Father May I

all the vicious in the wind
come and burn like salt
all the fire in the inn
grows even in the fall
hell’s on your wings
and it’s all in love
all the finer things i do now

Father why
father may i go home
she’s already gone twice
and still i can’t let go
with one arm
woman

with a face like these
i might need you around
you look enough like me
to keep alive but now
now nobody would know
nobody would know
nobody would know
nobody would know
Track Name: 55000
55,000

Well I'm fit to find all the more reasons i've got to adore you
but i've got 55,000 or more reasons left not to care
now all of my treasonous thoughts tell me i should ignore you
because i've 55,000 or more not-so-delicate fears

She said he's gorgeous when he forgets that he's beautiful
how that kills me to know that you know it
so sit, sit down and wait for another moment to pass me by
so I won't have to do nothin

Well I'm fit to find all the more reasons i've got left to need you
but i've 55,000 or more voices calling me out
and all of the evil ones tell me that i shouldn't believe you
but all of the weak ones just tell me to run to you now, run to you now

cause she said he's gorgeous when he forgets that he's beautiful
how that kills me to know that you know him
so sit, sit down and wait for another moment to pass you by
so you won't have to do nothing

but don't close your back door, don't waste all your time
i might never be that good, but i'll never be that easy
so don't close your back door, don't waste all your time
though i move a little slow, still i'll never be that easy
Track Name: Wheel's Eye
Wheel's Eye

The wheel’s eye has brought you this far
So if you feel like you’re lazy then you are
And you can drop all your hatred for words
Cause it don’t do a thing but relieve you
Of seeing how to speed through these meaningless things
When you need to be heard

When you see things as they truly are
Then you can feel them with rhythm and awe
And could it be what you’re hearing is you?
It’s been you all along
It is you after all who is actually sitting here singing this song

I know there’s demons been speaking to you
And everything you know they know it too
Instead of fighting invite them to come along
Because the best trick they know is to get dressed in your clothing
They’re savage and brutal but long to be loved

So if the feeling’s been hitting you hard
And you feel you can’t get very far
May I remind you to try not to hurry?
Cause things happen just as fast as they happen
You can’t slow down or go backwards
And there’s no need to worry
Track Name: Signal
Signal

i never was a pastor but i used to preach
i still do but i used to to rest in peace
now i try not to give out too much free advice
at when i drink and think i’m a guru

i don’t have time enough time in a day
but i’d die if i had anymore time anyways
cause more time means more time to waste
and i’m afraid my time is already gone

i never save money cause it all goes straight
to the rent and the food and calls that i make
i think about this and the days to come
will i ever have more than just enough to get by?

i don’t have time enough time in a day
but i’d die if i had anymore time anyways
cause more time means more time to waste
and i’m afraid my time is already gone

i never save money cause it all goes straight
to the rent and the food and calls that i make
i think about this and the days to come
will i ever have more than just enough to get by?

and if i need to change part of my life
i can’t see through the trees in my eyes
i am all i need
to hear a signal to be a signal
Track Name: Dorian
Dorian

The creation in your heart,
Does it seem to be true to you?
The questions of our lives, our search
Is it true to you?

And your kindness,
Your kindness,
It satisfies my curiosity.

And your kindness,
Your kindness
Satisfies my curiosity.
Track Name: One-Fingered Glove
One-Fingered Glove

Bordered by hundreds of other places where none would aim
one fingered glove to the exit
Are there more tongues to come gonna run away from the one to say
conquer the guards (gods) of our progress
But stones on a plate we are shuddering away, in the
pitch-shifting hum of abundance
While cold iron dangerous waves of distortion lay
smoldering waste to our conscience

Bordered by hundreds of other places where none would aim
one fingered glove to the exit
Are there more tongues to come gonna run away from the one to say
conquer the guards gods of our progress
But stones on a plate we are shuddering away, in the
pitch-shifting hum of abundance
While cold iron dangerous waves of distortion lay
smoldering waste to our conscience

Golden in the arms of a raised up alarm that sway
forward and motion us upwards
Over your own heart lay patience upon as a
blanket of warmth for the process
For the moment awaits for your bones to awaken as
slowly as chaste as you'd want them
'Cause the only real way to get out of this place is say
all you are god (3x)

Bordered by hundreds of other places where none would aim
one fingered glove to the exit
Are there more tongues to come gonna run away from the one to say
conquer the guards (gods) of our progress
But stones on a plate we are shuddering away, in the
pitch-shifting hum of abundance
While cold iron dangerous waves of distortion lay
smoldering waste…
Conscience is consciousness slowly erased
Track Name: Dozen Lovers
Dozen Lovers

it’s getting rough to deal in confidence
often gone or hiding away
put off its mark, yield so often
with you

if i lay down and duck for cover
please now would it lead you away
because i am torn between a dozen lovers
and you

in the eyes of all the others
you and i appear the same
well i know now, what i discover
it’s in you

so if i laid down or ducked for cover
please now would it lead you away
because i am torn between a dozen lovers
and you
Track Name: The Smile
The Smile

Even though I said “Eat my shit, and do not call me again”
I still think about you
I think about you every now and then
Or more like every single minute of all the hours that go past

Although I will smile next time I see you
I will be thinking “kiss my ass”
Yes I will smile next time I see you
but I will be thinking “kiss my ass”

And if you turn around to tell me that you’re sorry about this
and you’re concerned that I’ve been hurt
and want to know if we’re still friends
I will try to hide how furious that makes me when you ask

And I’ll smile next time I see you
but I will be thinking “kiss my ass”
Yes I will smile next time I see you
but I will be thinking “kiss my ass”
