Track Name: Stop The Sun
Amber circles stretch astonishing
Silencing glassy water where we've never been
Backwards
Shining waves within each other spin
No one sees them
On the rocks the feeling's sinking in
Reckless
I wanna weep
I wanna run
I wanna stop the sun from setting
oh, don't let it go
Take this kiss I'm blowing through this dream
Silently
All alone you find out what it means
Oh love
I wanna weep
I wanna run
I wanna stop the sun from setting
oh, don't let it go
I wanna spin
I wanna whirl
I wanna stop the world from getting cold
Don't let it go
Baby, It's alright
I will not forget
We'll close it down
We'll come back
I will not forget
I will not forget
While I trace another full moon
Moving us backwards
Still the night
If I could change this restless blindside longing,
Wouldn't I?
Oh I would
I wanna weep
I wanna run
I wanna stop the sun from setting
oh, don't let it go
I wanna spin
I wanna whirl
I wanna stop the world from getting cold
Don't let it go
Track Name: Baby Get Lost
Hold out for the day
You beg me to stay
How common of me
Not to rise above
And I try to deny
This gauzy reverie
Baby get lost
Baby get lost
Don't trust to forget
The love that's mislaid
I can't rely
Perhaps I can't decide
For this train never arrives
And all of my lines have been stolen
Baby get lost
We're more than you could ever imagine
Baby get lost
Well force the earth and laugh as we crash in
How gravid the moon
On the cusp of the sea
Buttering me up
For all that isn't mine
And how it petrifies
Baby get lost
We're more than you could ever imagine
Baby get lost
We'll force the earth and laugh as we crash in
Track Name: Timing Is Everything
I want you to understand
You're under observation now
You and your monkey gland
I can't get involved
You're knockin' on my pretty pink house
Just like a wrecking ball
Timing is everything
You can't catch me with that string
Timing is everything
It's everything to me
Wash up your face
Parading around with that sauce
Such a mad disgrace
I can't get involved
You're knockin on my pretty pink house
And sugar may dissolve
Timing is everything
You can't catch me with that thing
Timing is everything
It's everything to me
Think we're gonna need a rope
A high powered telescope
Wrap your legs around the radio
Get ready for my solo
Timing is everything
You can't touch me with that thing
Timing is everything
It's everything
O timing is everything
You can't touch me with that thing
Timing is everything
It's everything
It's everything
It's everything
To me
Track Name: Drunk On Dark Sublime
Angels starve until you're mine
Stranded on the underside
Angels starve until you're mine
Take us two where hearts collide
When night ate the day
I thought I heard you say
You wanted it all
Terrify them all
And if the sharpest arrow stings my eye
I will not feel it
If a million raindrops flood the sky
I will not get wet
Take us to a space in time
Let us drown just to feel our own shine
Angels crawl into my mind
Get me drunk on dark sublime
Angels crawl into my mind
Keep me drunk on turpentine
Wasted again
On the zen of men
If I should wake before I die
Be sure I'm pacified
And if the sharpest arrow stings my eye
I will not feel it
If a million raindrops flood the sky
I will not get
I will not get wet
Take us to a space in time
Let us drown just to feel our own shine
Take us to a grace in time
Let us drown just to feel our own shine
Track Name: Live For The Touch
Chained, I was hoping you'd remain
To this moment
Where our hearts speak ages
Not the cages moan
Hey, I was hoping you would stay
Long enough to try and fan the fire
Shed your wire gown
Golden rings just weigh you to the ground
And it's not enough
And it's not enough
But I live for the touch
Starved I was wishing I could carve
My name into your heart of wood
Dear, would it be clear now
Wed to an image in my head
Is it true that you could bring me closer
To the dieing sun
The next assault may be the lucky one
And it's not enough
And it's not enough
But I live for the touch
Plagued by a dream where I'm enslaved
It's a void that's always left me wanting
Sleeps in haunting fields
Wait, tell me you belive in fate
Could it be that we are getting closer to the only one
Golden rings will always weigh a ton
And it's not enough
And it's not enough
But I live for the touch
It's not enough
I live for the touch
Live for the touch
I live for the touch
Track Name: Passing On The Stairs
In the hall lights flicker hum
With her buckles still undone
She hides beneath her blue trench coat
Gaze so soft, yet so remote
In that dusty uniform
The outline of her lovely form
And more than once I've brushed her hand
Passing on the stairs
In the hall lights flicker hum
His dark lashes always hung
With a look so weary and so wise
When he passes he gentley sighs
In his work-worn boots he leans
And I wonder what it means
Whatever does it mean
Passing on the stairs
Up the stairs every night
Up the stairs seven flights
And down she goes into the night
Down my stairs and out of sight
Who is she with that misty look
Every night a different book
With the scent of violets in her hair
Who's this angel on my stairs
A distant time comes back to me
The wild reeds, the salty sea
My father calling 'don't go far'
I gathered sea glass in a jar
And built a castle with a mote
As the wind blew sand into my hair
In the rustling of your over coat
Passing on the stairs
Up the stairs every night
Up the stairs seven flights
And down she goes into the night
Down my stairs and out of sight
And I wonder if she thinks of me
Is it just a boyish fantasy
Speak dear lady wont you speak
Can't you tell you make me meek
So in silence once more we pass
Another night I walk on glass
And I dream that she thinks of me
Passing on the stairs
And I wonder if he thinks of me
If this could be our destiny
Oh haven't you a word for me
If only you'd misplace your key
So in silence once more we pass
Another night I walk on glass
And how I dream he thinks of me
And our passing on the stairs
Up the stairs every night
Up he climbs seven flights
And down she goes into the night
Down my stairs and out of sight
Up the stairs every night
Up the stairs seven flights
And down she goes into the night
Down my stairs and out of sight
Down my stairs and out of sight
Track Name: Shooting Stars
I've lost you once again
But I can't lose heart
To watch this dream descend
Just tears me apart
You close your eyes
And you can't hear me
Fast asleep in your bed of misery
Baby get out of bed
Don't close your eyes my sleepy head
Don't close your eyes my sleepy head
Look at all the shooting stars
Billions of shooting stars
Streak the sky
Dazzling diamond light
You're lost to me
And you can't break free
Wrapped in the gloom of ancient history
Baby get out of bed
Don't close your eyes my sleepy head
Don't close your eyes my sleepy head
Look at all the shooting stars
Billions of shooting stars
Streak the sky
Dazzling diamond light
Watch the night
Gather shooting stars
Baby throw off that cloud
The bed of thorns that lay you down
Quick like silver out of bounds
Look at all the shooting stars
Some of them could be ours
Stream the sky
Dazzling diamond light
Wish I might
On shimmering shooting stars
Glimmering shooting stars
Dimming
Shooting stars
Track Name: Shrinking Heads In The Sunset
Well you're caught in the headlights
Don't know which way to turn
And you're going down quickly
With my silencer
I commandeer your heart
And it's making you mad
It's dissolving your cool resolve
Though you haven't been had
Don't you wish you were
Tired of retiring in your mousetrap mind
Don't you wish you were
Making it through the moment
When you were my kind
Had a look at your soul
And it caught you off guard
And you can never take that back
And it's making it hard
Oh you wish you could hate me
But it's not in your nature
You'd rather debate me
And to me that's absurd
Don't you wish you were
Tired of conspiring with your mousetrap mind
Don't you wish you were
Making it through the moment
When you were my kind
Don't you wish you were
Drinking up all your doing
So you could crawl right back
Don't you wish you were
Shrinking heads in the sunset
You old sad sack
Bite down man, be strong
We're all impressed
The way you hold your breath so long
In time you'll turn blue
Won't be the only one who's really seeing you
Conspiring with your mousetrap mind
Don't you wish you were
Making it through the moment
When you were my kind
Don't you wish you were
Drinking up all your doing
So you could crawl right back
Don't you wish you were
Shrinking heads in the sunset
You old sad sack
Don't you wish you were
Making it through
The moment
Track Name: Scratch
You
You read my mind
You twist me inside
I'm weak at the knees
Cuz you're such a tease
You make me wanna scratch
Rush the gate and shaking
Then you hold me back
You make me wanna scratch
Vicious interference
Playing hide and catch
You live so exquisetly
I love you
You honed the dream
Sculpted mystery
Dead on the wire
Of vacant desire
You make me wanna scratch
Rush the gate and shaking
Then you hold me back
You make me wanna scratch
Vicious interference
Playing hide and catch
We're two stones rubbing our bones
Gonna make fire
Til the blood hounds fry
I want mine
You make me wanna scratch
Vicious interference
Baby down the hatch
You make me wanna scratch
Twisted inner vision
Baby paint it black
You make me wanna scratch
Vicious interference
Baby burn this thatch
You make me wanna scratch
Never leave me lying on the rail road tracks
You make me wanna scratch
Beaten to submission in this sparring match
You make me wanna scratch
Forget about resistance
Baby call this match
Burn this thatch
Ball this snatch
Itch this scratch
Track Name: Never Mind That Now
I'm alone at the docks
Like the flotsam of ill seas
I could float here for years
And you still wouldn't know me
So many dreams I used to dream
Never mind that now
All the days that could have been
Never mind that now
I'm outside
Reel my line in for good
What made me think
You could love me
All my chances are spent
With no hope of belonging
So many dreams I used to dream
Never mind that now
All the days that could have been
Never mind that now
I'm outside
Watch 'em glide
I'm left behind
Lead feet dancing out of time
I'm alone at the dunes
There's a storm coming soon
So many dreams I used to dream
Never mind that now
All the days that could have been
Never mind that now
Never mind that now
Never mind that now

Track Name: Narcosmicoma
The radio was calling you
To taste the seed of light
Between the rain
You freed your brain
Spun wheels on highway night
Instant impact made you see
And suddenly you became that tree
Narcosmicoma let you in
Into the whirlwind of blue floss imaginings
Narcosmicoma let you in
Beyond the margins
Eclipsing the eternal rim
Into the dreams that breathe your name
You'll rest a little while
Held deeper than the ocean miles
We're all an only child
Instant impact made you see
And suddenly you became that tree
Narcosmicoma let you in
Into the whirlwind of blue floss imaginings
Narcosmicoma let you in
Beyond the margins
Eclipsing the eternal rim
