Track Name: Dive In
You and me on coastin we ride
In the billowing tide
under green apple sky
White widow spun me and I
Am swimming through the sand and
Oh my soul's alive
Come and take a dive

Enter green enter blue
Let the see fill you
Enter green enter blue
Let the see chill you
Paper planes don't fly this high
And my soul is live

Come and take a ride
The day is fading
sighs of night are baiting
Moon running low
And I take a flight going fast
I try to win end up last
This paper plane cannot fly
Take it back and don't refrain
Come on and take a dive

Enter green enter blue
Let the see fill you
Enter green enter blue
Let the see chill you
Paper planes don't fly this high
And my soul is live

Enter green enter blue
Let the see fill you
Enter green enter blue
Let the see chill you
Paper planes don't fly this high
And my soul is live
Track Name: The Calm Before...
Salty sirens I would drown in
They've no voices
No voices
Surely there's a light ashore
No more my soul is

Yours
Ooooo
Ooooo
Sunken by the nothing of the swoon

I wish I could melt into the bones
Of tides that rise on open waters
No more they're sucked into the

Blue
Oooooo
Oooooo
Sunken by the nothing of the swoon

Ooooo
Sunken by the nothing of

Salty sirens I would drown in
Breathing closer breathless cluster
Take me deeper, waves my reaper
No more my soul is

Melting into endless pools of oil
That bend and shimmer on the water
No voice they're sucked into the

Blue
Ooooo
Ooooo
Sunken by the nothin of
Track Name: Concrete Calls
These concrete calls they have no breath
I save mine these pavements are stretched
Before my eyes clouded with smoke
They see it they breathe they know

But with brick encrusted crude zooms
They canter past leaving no room
For those who will carry no name
These concrete calls breathe it
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

But with no own
These concrete calls breathe it
But with no own
These concrete calls breathe it
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
They breathe

But with brick encrusted crude zooms
They canter past leaving no room
For those who will carry no name
These concrete calls breathe it
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know

But with no own
These concrete calls breathe it
But with no own
These concrete calls breathe
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
They breathe
They breathe

These concrete calls breathe it
These concrete calls breathe it
These concrete calls breathe it
I know, I know, I know,
They breathe
They breathe
These concrete calls breathe it
These concrete calls breathe it
These concrete calls breathe it
I know, I know, I know they breathe
But with no own

I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know
Track Name: India Ink
Lately I'm sore
Can't get the oxygen pumpin' it fails me
The circuits implode

Tendrils of smoke
Skeletonizing white bone that burns at the pores

And I dry dry dry
The ink off
my hands

But they've got my head
And when the lights all go off they will eat me
They'll tear me to shreds

But Caitlin you swore
That what gets shot from the sky
Sinks into ashes, rebreathes into stone

And I dry dry dry
(Rotten at the core you wore my skin and how it tore)
And I dry dry dry

Ink blots fall for rain
Ink blots fall for rain
And darkness is the day
When ink blots fall rain
Ink blots fall for rain
Ink blots fall for rain
And darkness is the day
When ink blots fall rain...
Track Name: Elastic
I I I'd swear you've seen
Better somewheres out there
True
Elastic

Cover your head with your
Fucking fingers
True
Elastic

Ooh
When fate becomes your foe
Ooh
When fate becomes your foe

I I I can't believe
Wasted life while all else burns
True
Elastic

Coward roaming places
Now left faceless
True
Elastic

Ooh
When fate becomes your foe
Ooh
When fate becomes your foe

Survivor
Blind bruising
As the night goes
Earth fails and
You're failing
As the light goes

Ooh
When fate becomes your foe
Ooh
When fate becomes your foe

Survivor
Blind bruising
As the night goes
Earth fails and
You're failing
As the light goes

Survivor
Blind bruising
As the night goes
Earth fails and
You're failing
As the light goes
As the light goes
Track Name: Insight and Sound
I saw it all
I saw it all
Come to me I am the tree
The shade the relic wonder why it's not mystic

Conscience lingers resonant in the sun
What you've become

Ooo
What you've become you can not
Hide
Ooo
What you've become

I saw it all I saw
I saw it all
And he said come to me I am the tree
The shade the relic wonder why it's not mystic, optimistic

Conscience lingers resonant in the sun
What you've become

Ooo
What you've become you can not
Hide
Ooo
What you've become
Can not be undone

Fall inside my fall inside my eyes turn black
You're not going
False attack
In sight
In sight
Fall inside my fall inside my eyes turn black
You're not going
False attack
In sight
In sight

Conscience lingers resonant in the sun
What you've become
Cannot be undone

Ooo
What you've become you cannot hide
Ooo
What you've become
Cannot be undone
Can't be undone
Ooh
Track Name: Don't Look Down
He dreamed of running away
The sodden songbird
Oh my sweet stay
Gotta run run run run run
These flaccid perches were made to pray

Find me in fields of white
The dripping sunshine was hatched to bite
Gotta run run run run run

Run...

Dreamed of running away
The sodden songbird
Oh my sweet stay
Gotta run run run
Run...

Ripped wings
like moons tides and
Ripped wings
with the sun they collide
Burnt and ready to fly
Into pieces sky
With the sun they collide

His dreams of somewhere bleed out
Pools of scarlet-infested doubt
Gotta run run run run run
These flaccid perches were made to shout

Find me in blades of grass
These shards of meadow
Your silence so crass
Gotta run run run run

Run...

Dreamed of running away
These flaccid perches were made to pray
Gotta run run run
Run...

Ripped wings
like moons tides and
Ripped wings
with the sun they collide
Burnt and ready to fly
Into pieces sky
With the sun they collide
Track Name: Skinless
Marry your bones to the breeze
Skinless summer has begun

It goes on and on
On and on

Marry your bones to the breeze
Skinless summer has begun

It goes on and on
On and on

Release your weighted heart
Red particles will sail
Alone is better now
I'll take your word for it

It goes on

Gently my skeleton walks free
Skinless in the sun

It goes on and on
On and on

Release your weighted heart
Red particles will sail
Alone is better now
I'll... I'll...

Release your weighted heart
Red particles will sail
Alone is better now
I'll take your word for it

Release your weighted heart

Surrender to the sea
Enveloped in foam

These words they ought a sing
Of what, I don't know

Leave me the honest things
When you pack up and go

Your words they truly show
That you left long ago

Today I'll settle in
Into the soil

Dig my fingers in
Feel earth in my bones
Track Name: Postscripts
Winds of silence left me
Graceless
Tongue-split roots I
Tasted

Grass shoots shot up to
Embrace me
Singing songs of words now
Wasted

Oaths now broken left me
Fateless
Blank before the clouds so
Weightless

If only eyes above could see
What you've made of me

Think of pebbles
When you see me again
Stay out of the sky
Think of pebbles
When you see me again
Blood will freeze and dry
Think of me

Sugar melting on my
Chafed lips
Cold November in the
Postscripts

If only eyes above could see
What you've made of me

Think of pebbles when
You see me again
Stay out of the sky
Think of pebbles when
You see me again
Blood will freeze and dry
Think of me
Skinless in the sun

Winds of silence left me
Graceless
Tongue-split roots I
Tasted

Grass shoots shot up to
Embrace me
Singing songs of words now
Wasted

Think of pebbles when
You see me again
Stay out of the sky
Think of pebbles when
You see me again
Blood will freeze and dry

Think of pebbles when
You see me again
Oooh
Think of pebbles when you see me again
Oooh
Think of me
Skinless in the sun
Track Name: Gliese 581 g
We wore our bodies dressed in wine
But then our veins became sun-seeking vines
We climbed too high

And I'll dress my wounds
In silver and gold
Shining

I touched down on Gliese
And I lay I lay
On dead, sulfur pavements
Life cannot be found
In these dark space mazes
Take me home

Safely wrapped in the cuccoon of time
Our limbs they sprouted feathers fit to fly
We flew too high

And I'll dress my wounds
In silver and gold
Shining

I touched down on Gliese
And I lay I lay
On dead, sulfur pavements
Life cannot be found
In these dark space mazes
Take me home

Shining

I touched down on Gliese
And I lay I lay
On dust covered pavements
Life cannot be found
An eclipse steady moves on over

Say what you want about my soul
Like stardust I'll breathe forever
Ain't no place like a black hole
To exist in pieces together

Cause I have seen greater things
Fall under lesser weight
Cause I have seen greater things
Fall under lesser weight

Say what you want about my soul
Like stardust I'll breathe forever
Ain't no place like a black hole
To exist in pieces together

Cause I have seen greater things
Fall under lesser weight
Cause I have seen greater things
Fall under lesser weight

Say what you want about my soul
Like stardust I'll breathe forever
Ain't no place like a black hole
To exist in pieces together
