Track Name: We Were Carried
Do you think that we knew each other when we were a former type ancient mighty rulers with kingdoms

Do you think that we knew each other when we were a former type ancient mighty rulers with kingdoms

separated by the unsailed bodies of the open seas

After we were conquered we turned back into the dust that settles underneath old sunsets and as we were carried by the winds

that blew us where the East meets the West

We were no longer separated by unsailed bodies of the open seas we settled across open fields as we lay still under sunsets

and we grew into wild violets

We were carried where the East and West meet underneath the sunsets we grew into wild violets we were carried underneath the sunsets underneath the sunsets we grew into wild violets
Track Name: Fascinate
If the warning wasn’t clear sorry my dear for

starting to see potential when I could never make it any better

I take what I can get then barely offer myself


Why does it fascinate my eyes when you are writhing from surprise
I’m compelled by motives that collide

Over all I’d say I’m not the one to blame for this diversion
opened ended aftermath is lurking at my back

If the warning wasn’t clear sorry my dear for

starting to see potential when I could never make it better
Track Name: Animal Instincts
We are savage animals you are my prey

You would survive the hunt only if I make

burning inside, it sets our instincts on fire
I know you feel it too it’s a combination of these sensations

We are savage animals you are my prey

you would survive the hunt only if I make
the assumption that you were already falling fast

I know you wouldn’t have the chance to pick yourself up

run as fast as your legs can carry you
lead me to the rolling river to the water
then we drink to put out the eternal fires
these instincts have no reasoning
we are animals desire isn’t intuition

we don’t decide when the thirst takes over
lead me to the water along that rolling river

run as fast as your legs can carry you
lead me to the rolling river to the water
then we drink to put out the eternal fires
these instincts have no reasoning
we are animals desire isn’t intuition

we don’t decide when the thirst takes over
lead me to the water along that rolling river

We are savage animals you are my prey

you would survive the hunt only if I make

the assumption that you were already falling fast

I know you wouldn’t have the chance to pick yourself up
the chance to pick yourself up
Track Name: Willow
Oh sturdy willow will you lend your wisdom

the discipline on how you’ve existed

through persistent seasons turning timid breezes

to turbulent surges that can thicken all my senses my mood

Please teach me willow how you cradle gently

the ornaments arranged down your rooted body

I am meek and stagger like a feather wavering

and I can merely grasp these rigid things they preach inside our heads

then it’s finally quiet when I need him

and I sway like your vines and branches
hovered over in a weeping fashion

yellow lovely leaves that filter in his breeze

I worry willow now that your branches are twisted

from nature’s fury enduring the tolls that change us

there are things we can’t control and it makes us so worried
I hear them preaching but it does not console
Yellow lovely leaves that filter in his breeze
a mellow trance as they sweep
Track Name: I've Been Here Before
I’ve been here before watched those faces adore
every pretty thing that they show them

is not good enough to just hold them

In their fancy machines they feel power to keep
on driving to feel satisfaction from all of their possessions

I’ve been here before oh I’ve been
watching all of their faces light up
so bright they’re lit with expectation
watch them want more
I’ve been here before
I’ve been here

I've been here before, oh I’ve been
watching all of their faces light up
so bright they’re lit with expectation
watch them want more
I’ve been here before

They walk into rooms expecting to be noticed as soon
as the eyes of many look them over

and they size up their stare to feel better

I’ve been here before oh I’ve been
watching all of their faces light up
so bright they’re lit with expectation
watch them want more
I’ve been here before
I've been here before
Track Name: Subconscious Gestures
Look into my eyes to hear what I’m saying

these simple connections fade

we lost the connection but I thought it was going well
We lost the connection but I thought it was going well

Look into my eyes to hear what I’m saying

these simple connections fade

we lost the connection but I thought it was going well
we lost the connection but I thought it was going well

Why do we break our interactions

these disconnections are making me numb
yesterday we felt a bond so strong but not today

we lost the connection but I thought it was going well
we lost the connection but I thought it was going well
but not today

This can go anywhere you want

the control is in your will to want it
don’t fight it let it happen

don’t you feel new

This can go anywhere you want

the control is in your will to want it
don't fight it let it happen

don’t you feel new
Track Name: Tell Me Your Visions
Tell me your visions you can only see

Are these entities confused like ourselves

when you feel their chill you cannot make them go away
they stay, they stay
they stay
, they stay

when it’s night you close your eyes

and visions show you premonitions

do they speak to you and do you speak back

when you feel their chill you cannot make them go away
when you feel their chill you cannot make them go away

they stay
, they stay, when it’s night you close your eyes

and visions show you premonitions

do they speak to you and do you speak back
do you speak back, do you speak back
Track Name: Skeletons
These skeletons, 
they drape loose ends

flesh and organs grow thirsty from their dark home

cages that hold compressing lungs
 wrapped up in curling shells
where spines fold when there’s no air
lungs they burn
 thirsty from their dark home

curled up inside cages flesh and organs
skeletons draping loose ends

thirsty from their dark home
Track Name: Be a Stranger
You could leave it behind

pack your bags and move to the city

I heard you talk about the places you’d like to see
why don’t you go now, why don’t you go now

why don’t you go now, why don’t you go now

I heard you talk about the places you’d like to see

What is there to be afraid of when you are the stranger

don’t be afraid of them, the strangers will let you in

don’t be afraid to be a stranger, don’t be afraid to be a stranger
don’t be afraid to be a stranger, don’t be afraid to be a stranger

You could leave it behind and pack your bags and leave it behind
and see the places you talk about seeing

pack your bags and move to the city

You could leave it behind and pack your bags and leave it behind
and see the places you talk about seeing

pack your bags and move to the city
why don’t you go now, why don’t you go now
why don’t you go now, why don’t you go now
Track Name: They Say
Underneath one steeple they were gathered in those filed rows
was everybody there for saying their prayers

photographs they tell you what is only seen from plain view
but what is really behind those images

are they really happy like they’ve always said
but what is really behind those images

the illusions make what they always say
they will tell you again what they always say
they will tell you again what they always say

are they really happy like they’ve always said
are they really happy like they’ve always said
but what is really behind those images

the illusions make what they always say
they will tell you again what they always say
the illusions make what they always say
they will tell you again what they always say
