Track Name: Vicious
There's a hotline to my head,
she said,
"My love is strange, oh, stranger."

It lies in chocolate boxes
and absinthe kisses.
Mmmy sweet lust.

Feed on
a symphony of triggers.
The same old tune.
The same old dance.
High,
Tied,
Waves crash in and out.

I'm addicted
to your ways.
The ease and the vigour
My hand on your trigger
Beware of the lazi-mess.

Today
the scents are new,
under a rotting moon.


There's a burning in my chest
questions loom,
The waves rush in again...


(Raincheck that
Let's get a room)
Track Name: Conundrum
So comfy in my cosy cocoon.
Why break my stride.
Why break my bubble.

We are an infinite ocean
of Brownian motion
Awaiting purpose.
(Yeah)

At least the leash around my neck
It reminds me to push beyond it's pull
Freedom with these limits
limits our spirits.

Water for my question tree
Do I stand a chance
in the masterplan?

She loves me
she loves me not
I'm stuck in this pose
waiting for the ball to drop.
Waiting for the bubble to pop.
Track Name: Crawl (The Human Experience)
It's taking long
Considering
I've got things I have to do
After

They're moving faster
They're moving faster
It's taking long

Considering
All the things I've considered

This crawl...

This crawl...
Track Name: Indignation
So many pretty colors
seem to consume
everyone, all around.

"Take my hand," they say,
and "Do your dance our way."

And wear that smile,
It's what we oughta do today.

But the indignation stays
when there's a reason behind your embrace.
(when there's a reason behind your face)

You have a weight with words.
With all your big ideas,
I cannot stop listening.

But all your information fades
not your conviction...

Here, take your ready-made perfume
to cover the stench of today.


(You go around giving formulae
When there's no one answer
to everyone's prayer)
Track Name: Circles (Information =/= experience)
Dancer is lost
Dance remains

HE can be known
When you are not.

Far from home,
Fresh eyes.
A marriage of senses.
When judgements demise.

THE CROWDS
THE SOUNDS
THE EYES

The infectious gravity
pulls me in.
I shed .... I shed
I run back into my shadow
Aloneness .
Aloneness .
My center, My throne.
A familiar zone.

THE CROWDS
THE SOUNDS
THE EYES

Circles
Circles
Around the
ephemeral purpose.

Around an
ephemeral purpose.
Track Name: Escape
I'm breaking all these bridges
Done retracing them
a million times over.

I'm a walking talking
chemical bomb
and I will go,
I'll go off
in your vicinity.

Don't you dare
follow me.

I'll go to a place
Far far far away from here
Where there's a memory
of a spark,
it boils up the
bottom of the ocean.

Don't you dare
follow me

Tonight my muse
is too loud
and I can't sleep.
I'll explode
if I stay here
I have to leave.
Track Name: Hush
Beautiful mind. When is your turn?

To embrace and give way.
You helped me learn.
Now let me unlearn.
'cause I've had my fill.

There's something about silence.
There's something about silence.
Track Name: Moulds
There's a need to talk
to each other,
open the gate,
communicate.

Don't look into the sky
when I look at you in the eye

The answer lies
right here in our mould.

There's only so much I can say
with all this language

There's only so much I can say
with all these words
Track Name: Truce
Disarmed

Floating with the hoots

Stopping

Starting

Breaking "truths"

Reduced

Weightless

Let go
