Track Name: Head Up The Sky
Are you going away?
Are you moving away?

Away. (Oh)

I feel myself melting and melting away
I see the shapes slowly coming my way

My way. (Oh)

Wind is coming down
Everywhere there’s sound
Trees are moving around
Looking at the ground
“What is it?” they say
Ask if I’m okay
Yes I am okay
Move along that way

Grass is building up
Flakes that never stop
Rays land right on top
Feeling shades that drop
What is this I see?
What’s become of me?
What am I to be?
How I feel so free?

Oh (Born again)

Colors everywhere
Layers over there
Floating in the air
Forgetting what is fear
Get me out of here
Keep me in this sphere
Get me out of here
Keep me in this sphere

Losing all that I know
Missing a moment ago
Oh I’m ready to go
No I’ve lost control
What is life again?
What is death again?
What is everything?
What is anything?

Oh (Born again)
Track Name: Sink Low
Wish it were easy
Conflicting news reports
Wish it were steady
Expressing remorse
Well I’ll just get up
And I’ll go shout out
‘Cause this is heavy
And this room’s hazy
Unjustified actions
You really broke me, how?
There’s all this tension
You really did it now
How could you be this foul?
What is this all about?
You’ve really done it now.
Track Name: Constants
You just stand right over there in your corner
Hiding behind all your peers, I hear the murmurs
I hear the murmurs

So distant

Why don’t you speak a little louder?
Don’t for a second think it’s over

Cause it’s not, it’s not.

And you really think you’re right for holding back now?
Staying quiet all this time before the truth’s out?
Hate to break it to you now, but I’ve outgrown you all.
Outgrown you all.

Turn my back amongst our circle of talking heads
Gossip, chatter, meddle, babble as I move ahead
Move on ahead

You could speak up a little louder
Don’t for a second think it’s over

I won’t forget, but I’m better here
Better here
Track Name: Mammals
Hectic, tragic
I can’t wait til I get home
Frantic, panic
I can’t wait to be on my own (with you)
Fluffy fluffy
Hurry hurry

Mammals, mammals (Mammals, mammals)
Mammals, mammals (Mammals, mammals)

Traffic, fabric
I can’t wait to take off my clothes
Drastic, manic
I can’t wait for my day to close (with you)
Furry furry
Purry purry

Marbles, marbles (mammals, mammals)
Xylo, xylo (mammals, mammals)
Milo, milo (mammals, mammals)
Otto, otto (mammals, mammals)


You brighten up my day
Don’t ever go away
Please welcome me and stay
Right next to me and play

Mookie, mickey (mammals, mammals)
Teddy, nori (mammals, mammals)
westwood, luna (mammals, mammals)
Rocky, big boy (mammals, mammals)
Track Name: Pen Caps
I saw your face on a stick
So sad, broken, hard to fix
What to do in a moment like this?
When we’re both drawn into abyss

Lines placed upon a pen cap
Lines go by

We can’t shut off our heads
We can’t shut off our hearts
We could shut off our heads
We could shut off our hearts
No care no cry, just up high
Hanging off the night sky

Lines placed upon a pen cap
Lines go by
Track Name: D. M. Torrential
Track Name: Movement
im walking in through an apple colored door
the walls creep in, the walls crept in
they close in on me in the past hour as i think of precious times
running down on memory lane
your finger was pointed down on me
running around memory lane
their finger was pointed down at me

no no no no no no

not again...
take your hand and cut it off
take your finger and chop it off
not again...
take your hand and cut it off
take your finger and chop it off right now

in this final chapter
there are names
bombs underneath in the storage room
“do you understand?” do you understand? do you understand?”
“the bombs they help us, they help us,
they’re our friends
they help us they help us
they’re our friends"

take your hand and chop it off right now.

complain and whine, i'm not scared
once they come, i'll blow this place
take us on a run, having us some fun
blow their heads off by the time they come

dont point at me, im not scared
once they come, i'll blow this place
take us on a run, having us some fun
blow their heads off by the time they come

don’t point at me, i’m not scared
go chop your hand off
go chop it off,
don’t point at me now…
i’ll blow this place off
right now
Track Name: Cut It Out
Cut it out
before it kills you
Erase it now
or else you’ll lose yourself
It’s time to go
Time to let go
You gotta get out
Get out

Thinking about all the change
Getting used to everything and
Trying to remain sane
Taking all the facts in
You look inside, you look outside
There’s no one there by your side
You sit alone and you question why
Then you hide, you hide

Cut it out, grab your things
Stand straight up and simply get out
Right now
Take it in, everything
Let the fear seep right in
Through your faired colored skin
Let it sink deep within
Oh let it sink deep within
Look at you now

There’s nothing left to do
Nothing left to do
Just take it in, take it in
Accept it

There’s nothing left to do
Take it in, everything
Take it in, right now

There’s nothing left to do
Accept it
Right now
Track Name: Orbit
Witness all the aging heads
As the quicker hand ticks ahead
Faces in the crowd look dead
“Rather be in bed instead”

Scoping as the field goes by
Wondering how time just flies
Rays of light which blaze through blinds
All our minds are intertwined

We sit here watchin’ all the clouds
We lay here as the world spins around

With all the flowers in full bloom
And too many locked in amongst old rooms
Whispers wishing for the end to near
Forgetting it brings us closer to our fears

In time the leaves will die again
Eventually the sun will rise again

Low on time
Track Name: Weed Crumbs In The Wind
my first puff was under a bridge
holding’s rough, coughing’s tough
my chest unhinged from my ribs
how is hacking love? I didn't get it
but curious enough to hit again and again
friends, y’know i wanted to feel the most
like a gift given me
from the ghost of christmas smoke
but the breeze with ease drew
heavy and certainly these
pieces flee

blowing away my weed crumbs again

I look over, over my shoulder
another burning, delicate flower
pulling in air, almost there
pass the branch over and over
rapidly hover, unclouded and clear
yet my feet are on the ground
wander up around
is it a dream i dreamt?
slowly hit the floor, slowly hit the floor, slowly hit the floor
they tell me that there's more
Tell me that there’s more

blowing away my weed crumbs again

there they go!
