Track Name: pangs
Sincerity is scary and funny
It’s not hard enough
Holding hands
Reaching out
Falling in

Put it out
On the line
Memories
corrupting time
Go to white
Take me in
Where we merge
Explosion

Confusion
Confucius
Loco loco motion
On my eye
Impressing
Pressing
Pressing
Pressing
Track Name: acquired waste
wind that blew
of the cell

all I could do was cry, just cry
As the People swept up into tunnels in the sky

I can’t move they’re disappearing
To the sky

In my dreams, I can not speak
It’s serious, it’s desperate
The words don’t come I’m paralyzed
Come to the light
Come to the light
Come to the light

shadows, shadows, shadows

My letters never reached in time
I wish you would just read my mind

What’s hiding in my mind

shadows, shadows, shadows

My letters never reached in time
I wish you would just read my mind

My letters never reached in time
I wish you would just read my mind

Shadows…
Track Name: cleansed? I ask you
Secrets in the morning
Secrets in the lights out
They were here exploring
Better keep your eyes now
What you do on the run is you run and you run
Never be a slave to the spy-o, to the spy-o, to the spy
Never be a slave to the spy-o, to the spy-o, to the spy


They’re coming up behind your lie
Catchin' up to you now
Don’t shut a wink to die
Better keep your eyes out

What you do on the run is you run and you run
Track Name: reverse polarity
Shiver
Quiver
Flash
Flash
Gentle creature
Flash
Pain of this nature isn’t completely describable
Pain of this nature isn’t completely describable
And the faces of the drivers, of the pilots, are forever, are forever
Track Name: souloid-Kartuba
Oh so heavy
My throat is weighted
Chance approaching
Closes on me
Ah – or
Place you go
Is farther
Kartuba
High

Pangs and shadows
Always follow
The slow and heavy

Free oh free

What I make is lost to me
It slips into the stream
What I make gets lost to me
It slips into the stream
I live in water I wash away
I live in water I wash away
I live in water I wash away
I live in water
Track Name: warm close hungry
We meet in the country
In a field lit by the sun
Among the wildflowers
We lay our bodies down
Into the space

It’s all been broken
It’s all been broken
There is a hole

In desperation
In desperation
In desperation

It’s all been broken
It’s all been broken
It’s all been broken

Fight is a spinning
Fight is a spinning
Fight is
Fight is
Fight is
Fight is
Track Name: ersatz?
I am the master for an hour or two
on your knees, I make the calls

Leave the money, learn a lesson
Leave the money, boy
Leave the money, and I’ll take care of you

It’s a world of give and take
It’s in all the love we make
Currency to match our currents
Money flows

love
I can love so many fully
fully

Leave the money, no confessions
Leave the money
bring the money
I’ll take good care of you
Track Name: nesting
Taste it
Koo koo koo
Track Name: anon/canyon
Come flow river
Make the canyons
deepening
Where the trees grow in the desert
That’s where you flow inside of me

When I come to see you
It’s a flash flood
You knock me down
You knock me down

The Silence hurts
Time is slow
The depth we know
The depth we know

The way I feel it
What’s a feeling?
The river the flowing
The walls eroding

The hole
It grows
And the river
Flows on and on
In the silent canyon
Where the rust is bleeding from the top of the rock
The hole it grows…
In the silent canyon where the rust is bleeding from the top of the rock
Time is slow
And the hole it grows, it grows
Track Name: smooth pursuit movement
Under I go
Pull me in
Pull me under - With the undertow
Under waves
Under cover
Swim and sea
Vision blue – pull me under
Hard alee
Lean to you
I hold my breath
In the wide ocean I wed
Pull me under
Sea sea sea sea, see, see, see, see
Track Name: the primordial machine
i exist in the forest
feels bigger than a bear

And you fear me

rebel

Oh god who comes?

I am as I was before
Mother do you see me?
I was always this
Mother do you see me?
Remember when I was born?

Rebel

(going into the machine)

How far to rebel
Finally you go back to whatever it was you came from
Track Name: catches the wind
Honor the man
Who catches the wind
Track Name: a wave
Time it has no sides
When you love your love
All the waters are wide
Wonders float above
Here we are
Floating by
Here we are
You and I

We’re sailing on
A wave, a wave, we call it
Oh
We sail on
When we close
Our eyes to sleep
In the sun
We will dream
