Track Name: Young&Old
Well I was younger
Sounds ahead
Eyes that wandered
Walked through sense

I am watching
Colored booms
But the old way
I want it more

I walk just where I know now
I smile just when I don’t know
You don’t know what I do but I know
I smile I don’t know where I am now

Am Now
Track Name: Fast Enough
I’ve known
And if my eyes don’t show it
Well I won’t mind
Where have they gone?

Have they gone?

This sky
Though this sky is duller
Well I won’t mind
Where have I gone?

Cus they’ll go
Fast enough
Fast enough
I’ll go fast enough
Track Name: Lick the Wound
Light the wood
Explode it in my hands
Light the wood with me inside

Me inside
Me inside
Me inside

Lift the world
And rip up its doors
Life the world with me inside

Me inside
Me inside
Me inside

Lift the world
Light the wood
Lift the world
Light the wood

And throw the fire
On me
And throw the fire
On me
And for the fire I’ll be waiting

Lift the world
Light the wood
Lift the world with me inside
Track Name: Overgrow
Live on horizons
Drown in blue
Little fish
Gulp your words

An island smiling
Cloaked from you
Unglued
Without a use

Use
Use
Use

A blight run rampant
Turning hues
Disrepair
Lost its use

Decomposing in the news
Decay
Is a lot
To do

Do
Do
Do

A moldy flower
Petals fall
Sun damage
Overuse

Use
Use
Use
Track Name: pixelated Princess
Fractured mirror you look off in there

World is falling through your shoes

Princess pixelates the grass around

World appearing as you move

Don’t move
Track Name: Particles
A happy day
I suppose
Air sketched with limbs
Don’t walk slow

Stay unknown

Unknotted
Flowered inside
Dust gleams suspended
In light

I can bear

An army
Halted half-time
Explosions
Of the mind

Be out there

The hill was steep
Disillusionment
Grows stale
I breath in

A memory shoots pains

Why do you go back home?
Why do I go back

The other day
It was happy too
No effort made to recall

The particles
Cause my blood to shoot
Let me fall in my dizzies

But what of
All the sad days?
The blots that
Stunt the brain

Darkened stains

The petals
Falling in time
Collecting
In the light

Disrepair

The hills
Slop down
I feel dizzy
Again and again

Don’t speak man

Why do I want disillusionment
Everywhere
My breath is tight

Memory shoots pain

Why do you go back home?
Why do I go back

The other day
It was happy too
No effort made to recall

The particles
Cause my blood to shoot
Let me fall in my dizzies
Track Name: Halfdream
Somebody look for the planes they fly over me
(Planes over my)
Face my eyes covered with coins I stay dry
(Face covered in)
As the rain slides as if I were coated in rubber
(Coins over)

My
Eyes
Eyes

Callus erupts from the front of my palm
(Rain I stay)
In the heat I spill water it bounces like plastic
(Dry Callus)
Balloons were once floating I wonder when they will
(Erupts)

Fall
Down
Down

Halfdream
Halfdream

Halfdream
Halfdream
Track Name: Aphelion
I grew cold
Living inside
Shadows in the corner
And the thoughts of something else
Tussled

Was it too
Long to feel right
Forfeited the counter
And I started to leave out
Waitings

Was I too
Late in the morning?
Track Name: Panorama of a Skull
Did you look close?
Do you want me to smile it?
You’ve been thinking and thoughts
Keep whirling around your skull

And you don’t know
What you want but you want something else
Hands flutter close and they close in
But emptiness?

Colored toys
And the fabric is soft and
There’s a weeping of warmth
And the warmth blurs the everything so

Did you look close?
Do you wish for the smiles or
There’s just so many things
And they float all around your skull
Track Name: Awake?! (dried inks)
I woke up
A year had gone
Got Up
Headed on

I woke up
A year had gone
Got up
I walked along

World had gone on alone
I don’t know where to go

Yeah I woke up
A year along
Got up
The walk was long

World had gone on alone
I don’t know where to go
Won’t fall asleep soon enough
I am worse off than off
Track Name: Apart..
Night went on
Day broke
Apart from me

The room
Grew hot to touch
A blistering

But who would care what was numbed?
What was numbed

Why fight shakes off for long?
Off for long

The blood
Came rushing up
So I lay down

Haven’t got up
But thoughts
Don’t stop visiting

Like you don’t know where you are
Where you are

And you don’t know what you are
What you are
