Track Name: Dead
Climbing out of bed once
Only one sunrise a day
Out of my own head once
Never got back in again
You're just as dead as everybody else you know
You're not as dead as everybody else, you know
Track Name: I M O K
I found a hole
I took it down
I had a black cat
A hat on the bed
I was wearing a frown
You catch a spark
To feed a flame
You can dig a black pit far enough down you’ll come out again
I’m awake, come inside
Damn, it’s good to be alive
You say you’ve got problems, baby?
It’s okay, so do I
We can live happy and I'll show you how
Call me in the deep of night
Screaming on the other line
Did you see a ghost or hold a mirror up to your mind?
I’m ok, you’re ok
Come back down
One more minute and I’ll be fine
One more minute and I’ll be fine
I’m like a leaf shaking on a tree
You’ll find me blowing off any which way the wind will carry me
A foot in earth
Keep your number name
Slime flowing down the mountain
Laughing cuz we’re all the same
I’m awake, come inside
Damn, it’s good to be alive
You say you’ve got problems, baby?
It’s okay, so do I
We can live happy and I'll show you how
Call me in the deep of night
Screaming on the other line
Did you see a ghost or hold a mirror up to your mind?
I’m ok, you’re ok
Come back down
One more minute and I’ll be fine
One more minute and I’ll be fine
One little ocean floating in a bottle
Two vibrations meeting at the sound
One little ocean floating in a bottle
Two vibrations meeting at the sound
Track Name: Call It What You Will
I'm bowing down in the middle
But you wouldn't know
Because your crying eyes see little
I should have known
I should have known
Your summer heart is beating
To feed your blood
Now there's that sinking feeling
That It's not enough
It's not enough
Call it what you will
But say what you mean
Just come and face reality
Take your lumps
All is worth the love
Every single day I call your name
Yes I know it's so cliché but
All I know is that all is worth your love
You want to see exotic places
I want to die
So we'll take the long way around
What's on our minds
We're straightening the pictures
And buying time
To keep our credit open for down the line
Call it what you will
But say what you mean
Just come and face reality
Take your lumps
All is worth the love
Every single day I call your name
Yes I know it's so cliché but
All I know is that all is worth your love
Track Name: The Honey Glows
The honey glows
I'm in a trance
I'm a bird in your hand
Sound is another word for joy
With time it becomes a noise
It's the pull of the moon on your skull
Blink if you hear the tone
I'm more than a mumbling speakerphone
I've seen the honey glows
The phantom slip between the spaces
Hung on conversations
Dripping gold
The hidden rails between the stations
Curious mutations of the soul
It's the sugar sweet saccharine flow
Sleep when the belly's full
Swelled
Like a buzzing honeycomb
These dreams are all we know
The minute skips to serve the master
And it's getting faster
Taking hold
This is all a grand illusion
There's a lunatic at the controls
Deeper and deeper
I can't read the meter
Deeper and deeper
I'm out of control
Lately, I need your love
I've never had enough
I'll rearrange the scene
There is no destiny
Only the future knows
Only the listener sees
Nothing where nothing is
All things exist to be
Baby, I need your love
I’ve never had enough
I’ll rearrange the scene
There is no destiny
Only the future knows
Only the listener sees
Nothing where nothing is
All things exist to be
Track Name: Full Color Visional
I'll walk straight off the edge with you
There's nothing else to do
A scene of a different hue
Flooding our ocean view
On my body
In my soul
A full color visional
A black smudge on the horizon directs me where to go
We compress under the pressure
Unwind and we uncurl
A white smoke inside the mirror
A full color visional
We start every journey clean
We talk about how their faces seem
To change in the evening glow
How little do we know?
On my body
In my soul
A full color visional
A black smudge on the horizon directs me where to go
We compress under the pressure
Unwind and we uncurl
A white smoke inside the mirror
A full color visional
Track Name: Palm Tree Song (Arecaceae)
Palm tree swinging in the city lights
You are my guide
How bright you shine
When our step is out of time
A song to soothe a heavy mind
All of life's a reverie
So would you spend your time with me?
Sing to me in tones
That words could never show
New bird singing in the summertime
The clock resets and love is blind
Endless codes infinite lines
A world of names and yours is mine
All of life's a reverie
So would you spend your time with me?
Sing to me in tones
That words could never show
I was a boat without an oar
A river closed without a course
I was a whisper in a storm
I wanted somewhere to belong
I was a...
Track Name: Wake The Shadow
Wait, don't wake the shadow
Fill your lungs and clouds go
In your deepest hearts pulse the strangest impulse
You say, "Shhh, don't wake the shadow"
Tell your kids
Tell your friends,
Tell your mom and dad
Tell them every little idea that you'll ever have
But will you run crying if I use another name
For an old affliction that you'll have to carry just the same?
Fear no honest answer
They won't kill the dancers
Move but don't think
A pageant of links
Still I say, "fear no honest answer"
Tell your kids, tell your friends, tell your mom and dad
Tell them every little idea that you'll ever have
But will you run crying if I use another name
For an old affliction that you'll have to carry just the same?
We're living on borrowed time
Don't wake the shadow
There's something inside your mind
That says, "Don't wake the shadow"
Track Name: Constant Claustrophobia
I had a dream I owned a haunted house
You were there too
A constant feeling of claustrophobia
Like any good boy I'd never shut my mouth
Like any real man I'd never show I cared
I had a dream I owned a haunted house
You were there too
But I didn't dream again until I'd moved away
They tore it down and made a children's playground
I'm still waiting for another dream these days
Track Name: Moldenke (Collective Memory)
You say you're cool
But you're leaning towards the door
You're posturing
But you won't be back for more
You fight the waves
They come anyway
Do you believe what's coming out your neck?
The little things
Make me such a wreck
You wash it away
It comes back again
Life's a bitch
But we all like a dog
Collective memory
Lost you in a fog
Bleeding out
What's this all about?
The easy lies
Make the world go around
They follow close
Pull you under
It's hard to dream
When you're fighting sleep
Now I'm bound to you
I don't remember most of my time
Another memory up against mine
I'm not as dead as everybody else you know
Track Name: Blighter Days
Trace your heart and cut it out
You're my X on the map when I fold it out
You know I can smell rain on your doorstep miles away
Don't get me started on the most devout
I'm so worried about things I shouldn't worry about
You know everyone wants some comfort in their day
Blighter days are here again
We don't exist without our friends
You don't have to be an island mist
You don't have to be a shadow
Spare the rod
Share the wealth
Are you barking up the wrong tree for your health?
You missed your stop
Tumbling all the way
Bless your soul
The last regret
I'm just trying not to see what i can't forget
Only sing the songs you write yourself
Blighter days are here again
We don't exist without our friends
You don't have to be an island mist
You don't have to be a shadow
