Track Name: New Groove
I want to dance in that cove,
In that state, in that constant plain of bliss again
And feel the weight of the breeze, of the rain,
Of the breathing earth, embrace the dirt
Keeps me in the sunlight,
Even when the clouds are in the sky

I want to live on that cliff in the center of everything and everyone,
And touch the waves and the sky and the rocks and your matted hair - please bring me there
Keeps me in the sunlight,
Even when the clouds are in the sky

I want to crawl in that cave, feel the grace of my own brain - a crystal cage
And be the god's that we are, feel the time as it truly is, a single blip
Keeps me in the sunlight,
Even when the clouds are in the sky
Track Name: Anomie
Every word I say - pulled out of a hat
Oh no, I'm not a stat-ue,
Of a girl with a capsule -
Made out of concrete and always so sure
Purely bred ambiguity -
I am without a cure

I'd rather fucking starve,
Than eat a pair of stones
And if I have a legacy its name is confusion
Call it confusion,
My seed is confusion,
Give birth to confusion,
Forget it's confusion
And walk around in valley,
With nauseating flowers and flu-ridden stares
-Semi-inbred ambiguity -
I am Without a cause

Believe me.
Track Name: Riding it Out
When I open up my eyes I am on the other side,
Dreaming of a spiralled face eating fish in a panicked state
It pulls me down, keeps me away from the sunlight,
Crumbles my faith in the moonlight,
Presses a thumb in my wounds and falls back down to eat with worms

It ate my legs and went down stream,
We killed some time and moved further east -
Found you can't wander straight lines,
Or skip through the evening's fights
Addicted to sun, you'll end up where you've begun

Spend a day in the sand, crawling through a wasteland
Forget who you are, get back to the centre and ride

But it ain't all bad, because there's a place,
Between extremities - a change in pace
You'll get there real soon; that comfortable cocoon
Don't tremble too fast, we're all on the same path

When I open up my eyes I'm still on the other side,
But dreaming of a new found place, swallowing me with its embrace
It pulls me in, gives me the air of a new day,
Sets things back into their right place,
Shows me the ways of the wind and brings me into hollow worlds

Spend a day in the sand, crawling through a wasteland
Forget who you are, get back to the centre and ride it out
Track Name: Pull Me Up
So I'm afraid of anyone else but my self,
A walking grave, an emptied mouth filled with shame
But underneath - a bargain plea, a melting boy, shattered joy

Escaping fate - it's a chore I can't take
A constant pain; a shift in thought pulls it away
But underneath - a sense of me, a call for love to pull me up
Track Name: Caveman
In metaphase,
I stand too tall
I'm walking through walls,
I'm cutting my teeth

And my courage is passing like a car on an open street
No longer waiting to believe in something that I can't eat

I met a guy with hooves for feet,
He masturbates to a priest,
Is he a man to be?
Because his skin is sticking tight to his bones and he's not alone
No he's not like me, he doesn't even worry about his plastic home

He's a caveman
Track Name: Art Won't Do
Called her a friend - I did again
Missing syntax, it's as fake as wax
So what if I don't go?
This dimension is only a home

Crawling through my flux,
I hope I don't get stuck

So what if I don't go?
This dimension is only a home
I hate,
I move along for days
Melting in time,
I forgive the light

Crawling through my flux,
I hope I don't get stuck
Track Name: Will It Stay
Colours, letters, single-file schoolers
Breathing, laughing, undermining something

Remember it started,
And you're underwater and covered in sheets
Pushing a stroller,
Make love to the sidewalks shadows

Naked constant, no such thing as justice
Calling, howling: "visuals are nothing",
"Colours, letters, single-file schoolers",
"Breathing, laughing, undermining something"
Track Name: Beyond Seeing
It's all in pictures,
But time is a figure passing through a stoned face frame -
It lets you live again

Dig me deeply,
I've wandered outside of my own eyes
Call me calmly,
It might take a while to realize denial

It might be a lie -
See?
Track Name: Pipe Dreams
Remember when you understood,
And conscience told you if you could?
[You are] a bit too late,
[You are] creating a place,
[You are] full of doubt,
[You are] figuring out

Remember when trust was a friend,
And you could hold on Carl's hands?
[You are] a bit too late,
[You are] creating a place,
[You are] full of doubt,
[You are] figuring out
Track Name: Charlie Said
I am the water, the sun, and moon -
A tree pulled from under a mass shared tomb
She calls me out, and sets it in my hand -
A hologram of everything I am -
Awake to see to the worst part of me,
A dream, a chorus of words I can't speak
"How long?"
"How long?"
"How long?"

Charlie Said,
"How long?"
