Track Name: For Science!
Keeping them alive
Is harder than it sounds
Spend my nights awake, lit up by their dreams

They will die here
If I can't wake them up

All my creatures around me are silent
This is my reason, my dogma, my guidance
For science!

Keeping me alive
Is harder than it sounds
Try to end the dream
I can never leave

They will die here
If I can't wake them up
I will die here
If I can't wake them up

All my creatures around me are silent
This is my reason, my dogma, my guidance
For science!
Track Name: Molecules
In a silence
With each other
There are planets
Molecules

Time and violence
Yet another
Batch of pauses
Platitudes

Tiny worlds
In the ether;
There are atoms
Particles

Space and wisdom
Here forever
Field of flowers
Short études

Falling over
Floating under
Empty space
Bears no direction

Blowing clover
Wild wonder
I erase
These quick reflections
Track Name: Faces In The Fog ft. Olivia Cox
Your main intention was not mistake
You choke the room with smoke and whiskey taste
Romantic views of past now cancerous intake
Your main intention was not mistake

And I'm sure there you saw
Many faces in the fog
So high up, wrapt in her arms but
You are bare, you are disarmed

Your main intention was not mistake
The coercion coming closer;
the frozen grasp, the gasp
As fingers twine in shirt.
Caelum cavea ardens est
But she doesn't mention them
Nor the swirling thoughts of her duress
You've pulled yourself into this mess

The branches, their cold subtlety
Covered in frost
Their cold subtlety
Their frigid adultery
Track Name: The Ashes
Beyond the borders this year
Straying to the edges
We found the homes of giants

We cleared out the trees
We cast them down in envy
Scorched into the deeps
'till all the earth was burning

Daylight turning silver
Changes in the heavens
The stars would flare in anger

The sea came rushing in
The earth was torn asunder
Mountains pouring flame
The deeps would even shudder

Everything's forgotten
A pool of time laid empty
The light of stories burning

The whites of blinded eyes
The spell of cedar dying
A thousand ugly cries
and all sound seemed to end
The sea came rushing in
The earth was torn asunder
Mountains pouring flames
The ashes of our Mother
Track Name: Broken Wing
She whispers with the hiss
of hot white electricity
Smoke weighs her down
The patterns on her skin are saying everything

You talk like downed overhead wires
I need you to show me your powers
You fly like a bird with a broken wing
A canary learning how to sing

She whispers with the hiss
of static under a blanket (in a lightning storm)
Never says a lot
And her tongue just hangs there
Dead but she don't care

You talk like downed overhead wires
I need you to show me your powers
You fly like a bird with a broken wing
A canary learning how to sing
Track Name: A Way Out
At the lowest
I found a way out
At the bottom
I found a way through

Oh, I wanna help you
Oh, I'll keep it moving.

You were wrong, it goes deeper
You could always have more
You are capable of more than you imagined
What are you waiting for?

My heart is overloading
I've never felt this open

Legally binding, and this is important:
Pay close attention to your needs
Effective immediately once you sign;
You renounce the right to leave

My heart is overloading
I've never felt this open
My heart is overloading
This is the life I've chosen
