Calling you out to receive in the eye of your mind A message subliminal Made for the planting of seeds for to grow out of you Directive so literal I’m not aware of perpetual passing of time It marches on endlessly Numb to all feeling, the space ‘tween my heart and my mind I float along endlessly I recede, out of time, out of mind And I can’t breathe I can’t feel you anymore Peace be to you in this hell of a violent storm The wind blows such temperament I’m fading away and I feel this familiar warmth I drift from myself again Diamonds and lightning in bloom, how they dance in my eyes Kaleidoscope memories I’m losing myself to your utopic rose-colored glass I’m half what I used to be I recede, out of time, out of mind And I can’t breathe I can’t feel you anymore

I got a fly and he lives in my room He came in through the window and now he’s stuck here Now he’s stuck here I didn’t give him a name Because the funeral is in a couple of days And I don’t wanna write a eulogy Yea, I don’t wanna write a eulogy I know a guy and he don’t got a phone He’s going off the grid for a while He said he wanna make it real again Yea, he wanna make it real again I haven’t seen him for months Why? Cause if you wanna get back in touch Well then you gotta send a messenger Yea, you gotta send a messenger Pigeon And in this ever-stranging world in which we live in There’s no meaning, it’s like being Underwater in a desert, oh no… There is something I’d like to say to you But I don’t got time now So leave a message with this pigeon that I found Disconnect and disassociate from you and me and everyone We’re just faces in the crowd We’re just faces in the crowd I got a boat and it don’t got a motor I’d sail it to Taiwan if I could only paddle far enough If I could only paddle far enough Then maybe I’d come back with a couple of wives And a story about how I didn’t even have to talk that much I didn’t even have to talk that much To anyone at all Well isn’t that nice? They say the silent treatment’s therapy For those who like it quiet But I want it louder, so where’s the noise? Yea, where’s the marching band and the million people Shouting in the street, I wanna hear ‘em singing... There is something I’d like to say to you But I don’t got time now So leave a message with this pigeon that I found Disconnect and disassociate from you and me and everyone We’re just faces in the crowd We’re just faces in the crowd I didn’t have to talk that much I didn’t even have to talk that much I didn’t even have to…

Gray is a distant feeling, so ring in the green Climb in the back seat, oh we’re leaving from this scene We’re chasing sunsets so far away Our worries all off our minds today See how the clouds are breaking to let in the blue Far from the rains, there’s only blue sky shining through Slow days turn to nights warm and long You hold me and dance on through this song Ride around the coast and Feel the warm winds whipping Sun is making fauvist-painted skies Night is a dance of starlight, it’s silver alive (Gray is gone, it’s cleared away) Check out the constellations, fingerprints in time (Coming on are the solstice days) We’re standing on beachheads, tides softly roll Soothing the storms inside my soul Take a night swim naked Where the waves are breaking Universal love on solstice nights Where the hours pass slowly And we’re not the only Ones who feel the beauty of this life Solstice days are coming on Throw your troubles to the wind Who’s to say that we are alone in this and we come back again? Far away, but far from lost These coins are never tossed Days are long and breezes kiss you a soft goodnight

Grab a rope to hold on to I’ll help you down and I’ll pull you through The well is dry, it’s bottomed out We’ve clambered down its gaping mouth And down the tunnel, down its throat We’re headed for the great unknown And the pull is strong, it takes us in The plane, it folds and we’re lost within this Long, dark, deep black hole The pressure’s high but the weight is low In this long, dark, deep black hole There’s no returning, no returning Long, dark, deep black hole We’re further sliding, further sliding Long, dark, deep black hole I’ll see you on the other side and… Pitch black, cast adrift Where time is stretched and space is split And deafening silence, louder still Are thoughts that race against my will We’ll never leave here… Heavens no! There’s got to be somewhere to go But the walls are closing, feel no end We’re trapped forever, trapped within this Long, dark, deep black hole The pressure’s high but the weight is low In this long, dark, deep black hole There’s no returning, no returning Long, dark, deep black hole We’re further sliding, further sliding Long, dark, deep black hole I’ll see you on the other side of this…

Saw the world fall apart today And you just stood there watching it all turn to dust The tide retreats on back into its grave And you stand there with an empty brain And the ravens keep flying As your people keep on dying And it seems to me that all we got, yea all we got is pain Leaves you empty with nothing but the dreams The dreams of yesterday Saw the soul fall apart today I try to piece this puzzle back together I can’t solve So you make yourself anew and brave the day Surrender to the changes in all forms And the ravens keep flying As your people keep on dying And it seems to me that all we got, yea all we got is pain Leaves you empty with nothing but the dreams The dreams you had today

Speaking Out 03:48
Oh, this is real I am speaking out, I won’t keep this down I’ve let go of the weight That was sinking me to the darkness I won’t break I will make it through to the daylight ‘cause I know I will make it up again And I’ll break my silence It’s been a hot minute since I’ve felt myself and I Gotta admit that Building it up inside without Without a release valve, and the bubble’s ‘bout to burst Time to find a way to get this off my chest Won’t you hear me out, won’t you lend me your smile Walk with me a while inside my head And I’ll tell you what’s been wearing me down And I’ll you that Oh, this is real I am speaking out, I won’t keep this down I’ve let go of the weight That was sinking me to the darkness I won’t break I will make it through to the daylight ‘cause I know I will make it up again And we say that it’s alright We never crack the mask or let our makeup run in lights We gotta put on the show Playact a smile until the curtain falls But hey, open up today Cut the weight and be free from your silence Take all your strength in hand And you tell me what’s been holding you back And you’ll tell me that Oh, this is real I am speaking out, I won’t keep this down I’ve let go of the weight That was sinking me to the darkness I won’t break I will make it through to the daylight ‘cause I know I will make it up again

Symmetry 05:19
Do you ever dream That you were alone in a crowd of friends For the one you wanted didn’t come along? And do you feel at home In a city where you know no one? And darling are you feeling cold inside? How long is the road? Is it insurmountable by trains and planes? And honey are you far away from me? Cause darling, don’t you know That I’ll be there for you in time You know I’m just a call away from you And when you go Only a shadow stays behind Say it ain’t so Cause I have been waiting all this time When you’re standing next to me, it’s the symmetry Of the form and thought of you All the memories, they’re built up in my mind For you I will wait here For you I will stay here For you I am burning my light Love it or hate it That cruel mistress fate, she’s mean and cold She’ll tear you apart before too long But I’ll tell you something There ain’t no other soul That ever dared to shine as bright Follow your beacon light that carries you back home Honey when you glow Even the sun is rendered blind Say it ain’t so Cause I have been waiting all this time When you’re standing next to me, it’s the symmetry Of the form and thought of you All the memories, they’re built up in my mind For you I will wait here For you I will stay here For you I am burning my light

A song for the rain that’s falling on my head It drowns out the lonely of my unkempt bed, I want To feel so small, I want To leave it all behind A song for the rain that’s coming down in spring May flowers coming but it’s all the same to me It all looks gray to me And if I could plant a garden with my tears, I would For if you knew the sorrows of my life you could relate To me, you’re just the same A song for the thunder that’ll deafen my cries A song for the lightning that illuminates the skies And helps me see the light When all I see is night And if I could paint a picture with a dream, I would For if you knew the secrets of my mind you could compare Our passions and our cares We’re not such a strange pair For if we could plant a garden with these seeds we’ve sewn, This song for the rain would see our sorrows turn to gold And brighten all you know And make our lives full grown And bloom for me again

Cold, indifferent shades of madness fill her lonely mind This mistress, she’s dressed in white but not so chaste She’ll soil her dress tonight On the black soot of my dirty mind, I’m staring Across the room, my eyes cut like knives into her sides The heat, eyes meet And our hearts will bleed Tonight Fated, oh we know this tailspin goes both ways she’s so Jaded, so used to nights as a limelight baroness And she needs this This humble seat at the side of my lowly pageboy life And I’ve waited all my life but how would she know? The barman pours another drink and I It’s all fun and games until something gets blurred This line between us, I I toe and cross Am I thinking too fast, am I talking too much, oh and Oh my god what on earth do I do with my hands Am I just talking in circles As she looks me up and down, I Choke on words And my tongue, yea it slurs and This fragile dance, it hangs in balance should we fall Fated, oh we know this tailspin goes both ways she’s so Jaded, so used to nights as a limelight baroness And she needs this This humble seat at the side of my lowly pageboy life And she’s waited all her life but how would I know? Sinking deeper, blackout darkness of my head And she whispers Soft and haunting as she crawls into my bed Feeling off, this conquest is not so noble anymore I stare at the wall, well I Guess I won’t get any sleep tonight Fated, oh we know this tailspin goes both ways she’s so Jaded, so used to nights as a limelight baroness And she needs this This humble seat at the side of my lowly pageboy life And we’ve waited all our lives but how would we know?

Come on and just tell me Who do you want me to be? Can’t you see I’m bent backwards, doubled over for you And do you like what you see? Tell me, is it good enough? Am I beautiful just as ugly as I am? Tell me baby Do you love me now? Won’t you tell me baby, sweetie, honey Do you love me now? Come on you sinners Was sorry good enough a word for you? Come on you martyrs, you killers, you fuckers Is it alright now? What’s the secret? Whose pants are you wearing? Are they red, green, black or blue? And did it work for you? Tell me baby Do you love me now? Motherfucking baby, sweetie, honey Do you love me now? Well I’m making motion To bring myself right back to me And if it just kills you to see me all, uh Naked and fearless, so be it now Cause I won’t have no more compromise It’s all shades of black and white for you Tell me baby Do you love me now? Motherfucking baby, sweetie, lover Do you love me now? And now that it’s all over Yea, it’s really over Do you love me now? Motherfucking baby, sweetie, lover Do you love me now?

Basata 02:25
A long, long way gone Go and reap the fields you’ve sewn Sun is down, bird has flown Waves will break and winds will moan Throw your ragged clothes in the fire And believe that something makes this all worthwhile Take it all in stride and you’ll know To give it all, to give it all So beautifully simple So simple to be on your own
