Track Name: You Me, Let Be
eye | drops
times | signs
chocolate | bars
hot | cigars
use | less
taste | waste
wicked | word
embrace | pace

leave me alone with your problems
i've got enough of it, myself

mouth | wash
back | pain
rosy | red
remains | remain
you me,
let be

leave me alone with your problems
i've got enough of it, myself

you know, you know
Track Name: Againandagain
as i lay there with an open mouth
the great tale of salvation made the rounds
glimpses of ease, and of elation
you took my head and set it up
purified it with your thought
great promises and an ovation

what remains

a weight, that bends me down
that turns me 'round
what you can keep
is your greed, envy
just maul, while i try to see again

as we sat there with a stare
in rank and file, we didn't care
ignored the things we didn't bare
of course we took everything we could,
seas, and woods
and all of that just to get closer

to it, that bends me down
that turns me 'round
what i don't need
is your greed, envy
just maul, while i try to see
again and again and again
Track Name: Needles and Sparks
come pack your things
we go to war
they say it help us
it good for all

never in my life i would have done this to you
never in my life, if only i knew

against this golden
land we fought
with our life in our hands
is what we thought

never in my life i would have done this to you
never in my life if only i knew
how strong we could be when we unify
how strong could we be, well it's worth a try

the mothers, they tell me
have no fear of the night
that crescents are like stars
and black is equal white

the fathers keep saying
that sharks remain sharks
and lions stay lions
and fires spray sparks
Track Name: Out of the Ashes
deep in these holes there rests our peace
among bursted skulls and daring dreams
for cheap thrills they have set that tree alight
attached that chain and left us high and dry
as if it were our destiny

out of the ashes
and into heavy rain
an umbrella for a believer
who could complain?

deep in your eyes it flashes
you lioness
the clocks they moan
the clocks they moan

deep in your eyes it flashes
you strongest child
the clocks they moan
the clocks they moan

out of the ashes
and into heavy rain
an umbrella for a believer
who could complain?

dictates: follow
heartbeat: hollow

that look in our faces...
Track Name: Two Hours
never been so warm
here around the inside
never been so sure
I did not feel before
head against head
floating in this vast flood
as the skies so red
this our very hot blood

and two hours away from midnight
sun she will stay
but on the other side
in search of the days
i was so sure
that only you can take me away

down on the street you were
with boots so white as your silky hair
so gracefully you urged them to
give up their hearts and bestow them upon you

and two hours away from midnight
sun she will stay
but on the other side
in search of the rays
it becomes clear to me
that i could've always been free
Track Name: Gravity
thicket, wild and for real
sneaking through the lanes
a divine face on giant figures
emerging outta space

in times where anything is granted
blinded by some lights
you trusted him, and he trusted the others
shades arise

it gets you back onto your feet
inviolable gravity
that crater is too steep
kneel down, fold hands it's your gravity

pictures of you
inside my head
though i should know
there's more to it
than just the two of us
unlike we taught ourselves

there are all these things
circling in our minds
they offer us a chance,
and we get an idea of what's to come
in a vast space
as narrow as a needle tip

but until then
there is this one thing i need from you
i want you to
give me more
more of that matter
more of that force
more of that momentum

i wanna feel it
feel it in every pore
i wanna rush through it
i want you to drown me in your matter
i'm craving for that feeling
i just wanna
i just wanna feel it
Track Name: Ignimbrite
ignimbrite
my hands are tied
i'm tired, i'm tired, i'm tired

when cascades of blinding lights
are howling hymns of ancient times
and when you're passing by
i'll know again what i wanted to be
what i always wanted to be;
alive
