Track Name: 3
I am three
In my mother’s arms
by the base there’s a sea
sand hills, orange skies
counting paratroopers
as they sail the air
high above in the clouds
paratroopers sailing in the air
we stand in the backyard
and watch them float away

and I send my weary eyes
closer to the shore
and I see the waters flow
closer to the door
and I’m waiting for the hour
waiting for a war
to take me far away from home
and break me like an accident
Track Name: Afterlife
my befallen afterlife
we can only dance together in the street
dance me to the other side

all we're seeing is a lie
all we think is better tends to be the same
when we fall into the light
won't you take me in the safe asylum of your hands?

lead me from the pavement to the waterside
cause everything they teach you
oh, it leaves you dry

my befallen afterlife
this should be the one desire left to keep
when we fall into the light
how do we relive together dancing cheek to cheek

lead me from the pavement to the waterside
cause everything they teach you
oh, it leaves you dry
and even if they hold you through the night

(dance me to the other side...
My befallen afterlife...)

and the ballroom floor is thin
and the earth is shattering
and I lost my calling
under my befallen afterlife
my befallen
Track Name: Whenever The Sun Comes
I can’t even say it loud enough
the motion is real and terrible
aside of the broken promises
there’s a window of light and glow
why do you scare off animals
to the horizon, Emily?
and do you define your innocence
as a picture of fiery gold?

whenever the sun comes to rape me
whenever the sun comes
whenever the sun comes to rape me
whenever the sun comes

I’ll have a quiet holiday
making assumptions endlessly
she wants to practice medicine
on the people who die the most
if I had to venture anyplace
never to see you anymore
would you allow me to retain
all the passion I’ve had for you before?

whenever the sun came to rape me
whenever the sun came
whenever the sun came to rape me
whenever the sun came
Track Name: Elegy
we took a walk by the fire
when the sun came down to land
witnessed the trees and the briers
hold each other’s hands
and seeing the animals run
forsaking their homes
they seemed so alone together

these are the souls in your path
as unfaithful as the sea
and these are the ones you will trust
for eternity
and all you betrayers of faith
who live in denial
you’ll see only birds forever

and I keep a note from the past
where my words are not as clear
and if I could finish with that
and disappear
if I could get everything under control
wouldn't there be a river for them all?

even if I’m lost in this constellation
even if I’m alone on this flight
even if I’m late for the celebration
I’m hearing the mute
he whistles tonight
set this sore emotion to the light

maybe the serpents of wrath
made it safe behind the door
and maybe I don’t need to ask
for an elegy
even the fires of hell
eventually die
I think I heard a bluebird
in the sky
Track Name: Not About Us
I’m calling you over everyday
when I’m alone
for nothing has strayed you
from dirty lanes back to your home
our god in his crown
is judging us down

in pity and purchased heavenly sins
buzzing around
I’m picking a frequency from within
hammering on
my god is a sound
a pusher in town

I see you slipping away
I hold you anyway
I know it’s not about us today

and I was tearing it up
in a new confusion
sealing it off from inside
and as the barrier rose
it was quickly moving away
and back and behind
no one ever treats you right

I see you slipping away
I hold you anyway
I know it’s not about us today
I see you slipping away
I hold you anyway
I know it’s not about us
I know it’s not about us

and you get to stay full time
and you get to be your kind
and you get to fit just fine
enough for everyone to see you
when you’re walking blind
I see you slipping away
I see you slipping away
Track Name: Killing Light
I’ll be following every step
you know this town is small enough
and we could meet by chance
and gaze upon the sidewalks
that wouldn’t open up for us

and I’m likely to spend my days
waiting in the house alone
my medicine in hand
I’ll make up a lie
to make sure that I am comfortable apart

killing light could never seem to fix me
but I had enough to try my best to defy it
hand in hand, the never ending story
of your meaningless goodbyes
resolved in a worry
a candle in your eye

simplicity at best is waiting for an entourage
it’s only common sense to pick up a fight
she’s a belly dancer swimming in the flood
and it’s a hell of a lot to say
I’m seeing through the camouflage
and we should know by now
how to survive
we’re killing some before we open up

killing light could never seem to fix me
but I had enough to try my best to defy it
hand in hand, the never ending story
of your meaningless goodbyes
resolved in a worry
Track Name: Kind Of Dance
my chemicals in balance
so chemistry has healed
spent most of the hour
waiting for the pill
the moon has closed the door
to be alone
rain on the seaside
hail into the bone

and you don’t have to fight
there’s nothing there to win
you don’t have to try
to follow anything
you don’t have to belong to anyone
rain on the seaside
hail into the bone

now there ain’t no sound to calm you down
before you go to sleep
but hey, I’ll stretch the night away
to hear the trumpet’s grief
as the pen pal pauses while he is reaching out
for help behind the screen
I thoroughly know this kind of dance
it’s all I’ve ever seen

I’ve given up the fight
I’m waiting for the kill
whatever’s left behind
was not remotely real
I’ll meet you at the shore
and come along
rain on the seaside
hail into the bone

now time has stopped your hybrid heart
from beating for relief
and bravery prowls with beaming eyes
it’s searching for the thief
in a corridor’s half light
a thousand miles from any open room
I thoroughly know this kind of dance
I’ll join you very soon
very soon

rest your weary mind
and let me take the wheel
I'll get you home in time
I promise that I will
Track Name: Slow Burning Light
which one shall we take?
I don’t know
will he be a friend
or a foe?
fleeting boats of luck
rocking under your bed
shadows move about
making way
slow burning light
slow burning light

let us take the bear
in the woods
oh I’m sure we can
like you could
and even though you know
sorrow never dissolves
fly me on the breeze of your love

slow burning light
comes down from the storm
closing in at your door
and you don’t know what it’s for
it does not bother you anymore

which one shall we take
let us take the bear
will he be a friend
oh I’m sure he can
slow
slow
slow
Track Name: Secret Sea
dark wet road
shining like a leather jacket
it takes me where I’ve been
a hundred times before
mark my words
take your hands out of your pockets
so many times you said
but I chose to ignore

fly me down
unveil the secret sea
I’m always on the hunt
for things to be

off we go
by the boat but never on it
the undercurrent seems
to pull me down below
and now you know
and god knows I was being honest
to follow the heat
to wallow in the snow

fly me down
unveil the secret sea
I’m always on the hunt
for things to be
Track Name: Heavenly Signs
there comes a time
when both of our heavenly signs
go to sleep and turn to their fatherly moon
and you and I
in ever immersing design we begin
we turn our own eyes to poetry

but it’s not as funny as you may think
I’m choking on the wings
of a butterfly
it’s not as funny as you may think
to rise above the words you said
I thought I could die

oh calm me fairytale suckers
making up endings
and pouring out laughter
we dance once again
and maybe this one is for you
if I could filter out matter
and peace in our hearts
would impend as we flutter
we call you again
and joke about starting anew

but it’s not as funny as you may think
I’m choking on the wings
of a butterfly
it’s not as funny as you may think
to rise above the words you said
I thought I could die
