Track Name: Unicorn Blood
Kick me with your weightless feet
And turn me into sparkles
Make me atmospheric, sweet
And far away wind blown
I’ll keep all your secrets
And believe what you believe in
This is not just a place in time
It’s a dimension

Don’t shoot up the magic
Take a slow release tablet
Vanish into masses
Create the time that passes

Throw the stones from the vessel
To keep it on the water
Fall into a deep sleep
So that you never lose
Find the flying carpet
And keep it in your room
we are not just an episode
we’re a series

Don’t shoot up the magic
Take a slow release tablet
Vanish into masses
Create the time that passes

Unicorn blood
I’m getting so young
With every drop of what keeps us from moving in the wrong direction

Punch me with your lofty glance
And turn me into gold
Make it rain eternities
Where nothing’s ever old
Track Name: Circles
One day at a time
To help with a bitter mind
One drink to remember
Will put you right back in time
One thousand treasures
On every page in the book

A start that follows an end

Fine day to try again
To wipe all the slates clean
Why wait for a friend to
Create a fantasy
Make peace with a memory
Or just box it up

A start that follows an end

After waiting countless days
Until the
Quiet burning has displaced
All of the
Burdened beasts who
Will erase
Maybe the
Future’s smiling
On it’s face
So true

No planets exist
When you don’t believe in circles
No promises
Without anything to wager
Take everything missed
As usable elevation
Parameters set on
Only what comes before you
One thousand treasures
On every page in the book

I’ll put a million times
Every ounce of my
Will towards another try
Will towards a start that follows an end
Track Name: Holy Ghost
The salt that came from crimson tides
In all, is in the wounds and in the eyes
The river’s mouth is open wide
It talks to oceans, offering
It’s full and strong from feeding on the streams
We’ll float until we can’t anymore
And keep our feet above the floor
Finding out, while being found
Trying not to drown

Stand in line to see the holy ghost
He’ll decide what you deserve
My knees are cleaner than they were

The breeze is careful as it blows
Be gone with it and follow where it goes
When all the reasons aren’t there
And if the broken won’t repair
Finding out while being found
Listen to the sound

Stand in line to see the holy ghost
He’ll decide what you deserve
My knees are cleaner than they were
Track Name: Bones
Ripe, to eat
To pick with my own thirsty hands
She shakes like the leaves of her favorite tree
The one who’s name we don’t know
Who pairs with her nose, to create the perfect sense
The way she pairs with mine
All I know is that I will never find peace on my own

Walking ghosts in fields
My emotion sealed

All the way through all of my bones
Is the feeling of you waiting at home
From now on
I will never be gone
I’ll never do wrong
To you

To me
She is a church’s bell
Or a light
From a beacon in the middle of the night
While I’m just a steam engine without steam
Or track
How the hell will I ever make it back
She looks
And whistles inside my head
A need can be a freedom
A queen creates a kingdom

Walking ghosts in fields
My emotion sealed

All the way through all of my bones
Is the feeling of you waiting at home
From now on
I will never be gone
I’ll never do wrong
To you

A common thread
To wish for dead
A life of love
To go instead
Anywhere
You’re not there
When all I want to do is come home to you
Track Name: Devil's Meadow
No home for nocturnals
Always a more appealing place

Yes the wolves will howl
In the devil’s meadow

Patriots by definition
Only when in a crowded space

If the footsteps fumble
It’s a sign to get out
While you can

There’s a light to follow
Even when blindfolded

We’re alright even if and when
There aren’t hands to hold on to

Not about to wage a war on the civilized world
Wait into the night if you would like to speak with the wolves
Just because we lost the drive to understand what we’re told
Doesn’t mean we’re going to be alone

More than a soft escape
Pleasure cruise for the discontent

When the blinds are all opened up
It’s a bust
We never had a chance
Have fun with your family
While I keep my head dancing

When the skies have all opened up
Onto us
And told us we’re the same
We’ll drink from the family cup
And keep our heads floating

It’s not real

It’s not real
Track Name: Animals
Cannot breathe
When I need you

Cannot be
wanna see you

When did we start to turn
Into animals

I’m breaking the streak
Standing on ground

But walking is a thing I will not do

Followed direction for staying in place
With dreams that I had when my head had the space
I’m making believe what made you run from me

Cannot breathe
When I need you

Cannot be
wanna see you

If we all turned to stone
We might be better off

Never asleep
Listening deep

I can hear you calling out at night

Buying a ticket to get on a plane
With thoughts of trading it in for a one way
You never thought that my words were worth believing

Standing on ground

Cannot breathe
When I need you

Cannot be
wanna see you

Gonna keep
Waiting for you
Track Name: Moonlight Song
On and on
Delicate singing of a moonlight song
It’s a marathon
We danced away our destiny
We had so much
And we gave it up

On the inside
The road through your mind
Your chemical mind
It’s such a great time
It never seemed like
We’d ever end
Your young love
Doesn’t know
A thing about
this old love
And once we decide
Just where we’re going
We’ll get there

To belong
In the company of greater ones
We were under done
never misplaced without the sun
It was all in fun
and we carried it all

On the inside
The road through your mind
Your chemical mind
It’s such a great time
It never seemed like
We’d ever end
Your young love
Doesn’t know
A thing about
this old love
And once we decide
Just where we’re going
We’ll get there

For a while
I was burying my face in sand
Just to prove the fact that
We gave away our right to breathe
Now we’re growing up
As faithful as children

Never
Answered
Questions
Linger
Longer
Nearer
It’s clear what
This is

Over
exposure
It’s dark where
I’m seeing
Under
Influence
Let’s do it
Again
