Track Name: Man Provides
(In the mind of the psychonautical, once were afterthoughts, shimmering spectacles)
(This side hive minds of false idle danger, not wrong we ersatz daft borin’ fallen)

Like a polymath who never knows
When to run or when to fuck a man, you don’t suppose
That when it’s over he’ll decipher just what I propose
Or never even notice

Bounce from the oddity to stale scientifics
Renounce a leaning to demented sorts of hieroglyphics
And when they ask, you look them in the eyes and draw specifics
I don’t do drugs, I am drugs!

(In the mind of the psychonautical, once were afterthoughts, shimmering spectacles)
(This side hive minds of false idle danger, not wrong we ersatz daft borin’ fallen)

Like a polymath who never knows
When to run or when to fuck a man, you don’t suppose
That when it’s over he’ll decipher just what I propose
Or never even notice

Ooh...

Bounce from the oddity to stale scientifics
Renounce a leaning to demented sorts of hieroglyphics
And when they ask, you look them in the eyes and draw specifics
Track Name: Before This Ends Well
That usually helps, in stark lines of white
Sniff and retrieve, lose all your bite
It's only matter, so vibrate with me
I just sit and wait, wait for you to leave

Tell me before all this ends well
I’ll keep my head down, ignoring your smell
Leave me alone, bid me farewell
Just tell me to go before this ends well

Give me a reason, you’re hungry as well
Say no to me then unbuckle your belt
I wanna know that you’re not compelled
So tell me to go before this ends well

And while outside the violence dies
Out goes the violet sky
We can still hear the traffic nearby
Don’t say goodbye when we could
Get close without ever even touching
Feel your breath on the skin between the buttons
I could say yes and you’ll go all of a sudden
And never lock eyes again, so just

Tell me before all this ends well
I’ll keep my head down, ignoring your smell
Leave me alone, bid me farewell
Just tell me to go before this ends well

Wouldn’t you say that I’ve done alright
Got all my teeth and no end in sight
Followed my nose and got both my eyes
Still would be nice to have someone at night

Tell me before all this ends well
I’ll keep my head down, ignoring your smell
Leave me alone, bid me farewell
Just tell me to go before this ends well…
(Tell me to go, I know it’s over)
Track Name: Nona
Fall, wouldn’t you know, I listen

In the best of all possible worlds, I was a teenage stepping stone
Before the clouds, I remain the same, only my head has grown, so

Go where I go, your eyes are blue from all the lonely people
Hand on a cheek, tell your saviors
I look and find no ecstasy, if all the rest is free
A year with nobody could never falter me

Wrong, as if I knew, wise, missing
Fall, wouldn’t you know, I listened
Kiss me on on the mouth somebody
Blink, it doesn’t mean you saw me

Give up meat for a piece of the tail
I couldn’t tell you why
I join the herd and give rise to the frail
We’re better left inside, boy

Hah...

Hiding in bathtubs, I prayed for release
Mind over nerves that stretch as far as the breeze
Nona…

I just tick by degrees
Bring me some peace


Is it touch, or is it something worthwhile
I could be pretty like a contorted smile
Baby, you paint my face alright
Won’t somebody come make my sparks ignite

I hear and forget, I see and believe,
I do and understand, lose and remember

I look and find no ecstasy, if all the rest is free
A year with nobody, could never falter me
When all the dice are thrown, platonic seeds are sown
My friends and flaws are known, but I still feel alone
I know, I know ‘bout it

Wrong, as if I knew, wise, missing
Fall, wouldn’t you know, I listened
Kiss me on on the mouth somebody
Blink, it doesn’t mean you saw me

Wrong, as if I knew, wise, missing
Fall, wouldn’t you know, I listened
Sharp, you file a tack, drink ether
Dig deeper to stay, yeah

Is it touch, or is it something worthwhile
I could be pretty like a contorted smile
Baby, you’ll paint my face alright
Won’t somebody come make my sparks ignite

Wrong, as if I knew, wise, missing
Fall, didn’t you know, I listened
Track Name: Lotus Eaters
I can’t bend the rules when I’m just too sleepy
What if it’s all I have ever needed
I’ll let go of the gun and go home for the season
Abandon your thoughts and rejoice

Spring has awoken
Not the way I wanted, not the way I wanted
Read the mail or align with my allies
Spreading out like rabbits, I could leave the planet
If I left how could I learn from pain or strangle pride through apathy
Could you pull me from my stupor
Grace me with indifference toward my own kind

Do you want to be a part of it?
There could be land beyond this forest

Were you made to grow and follow
Telos, tell us, thirst for quietude
Slip the dogs or strain yourself holding them back
Was it all in vain, is it how I’m made
If I left how could I learn from pain or strangle pride through apathy
Could you pull me from my stupor
Grace me with indifference toward my own kind

Do you want to be a part of it?
There could be land beyond this forest

Do you want to be a part of the universe? Do you?
Will you take control of your own experience?

Peace-giving fruit or ethereal prison
Ambition extinguishes when you have risen
Wash clean the rapturous taste of the lotus
We’ll never get home if we keep losing focus…

Spring has come and left without warning
Not the way I wanted, not the way I wanted
Read the mail, aligned with my allies
Life becomes oppressive, weakening the pensive
When I’m gone I’ll feel no longer pain nor pride through mindful apathy
You have pulled me from my stupor
Graced me with indifference toward my own mind

Peace-giving fruit or ethereal prison
Ambition extinguishes when you have risen
Summon the courage to lose all your focus and reach for the rapturous taste of the lotus
Why join the best of a sullen collective when given a world where you don’t need perspective
Break into one, counting backwards to seven
We’ll drop off the planet or fly towards the heavens
We’ll hold hands and leave everlasting impressions
Or turn on the hunger that heightened our brow
But we’ll never get home if we keep eating flowers
Track Name: Great Leap in the Dark
The change may come, it’s hard for the dumb
And harder yet for those who’ll never be sure
The change may come, it’s hard for the dumb
But it’s not so certain now

The road is starting to descend, and rain is gently falling
I am the one who needed friends, to sit around for a call
I am still in the blue, stuck in the blue

Start to pick apart what levels you
Disintegrate the unions you’ve been tethered to
Doubt below the ocean and doubt above the sky
Was there ever any reason not to leave it all behind
When

Rifles, drugs, and candy
Never understand me
Cancer hasn’t found me
A great leap in the dark

The planes are flying overhead and there is nothing wrong here, nothing wrong here
I fixed a probable event and boy did it calm my nerves to feel like I had a say
Ever onwards, feel the march of growth and decay

Unbound by choice, aiding the illusion of will, but we’re not going anywhere...

Rifles, drugs, and candy
Never understand me
Cancer hasn’t found me
A great leap in the dark

If you’re not alone, call me…

The change may come, it’s hard for the dumb
And harder yet for those who’ll never be sure
The change may come, it’s hard for the dumb
But it’s not so certain now
Track Name: Wire Mother
All of us are waiting
Standing by you at the door
If you should go, leave your suff’ring
Your awareness hasn’t left you

There is no debating
Nothing softens what’s in store
Raise the flags half mast on Wednesday
With an X, the light goes out

All of us are waiting
With open arms and smiles and sighs
Friends who have gone sit beside you
Holding hands and sharing laughs again

All of us are waiting
Standing by you at the door
It’s time to go, no more fighting
All our love will never leave you
Track Name: Tilting at Windmills
Why’s it sunny, why’s it always sunny...

While the ape was busy breeding or fighting over phallus
All the trepidatious armed themselves with malice
Diplomatic reason mistook for a ballast
Don’t forget to love, but first you learn to callous

If you need me, at ease, at ease
Wait here, wait here, could you please
Break you, feed me, take these, take these
Leave it, cut it in 2s and 3s

Why’s it sunny, why’s it always sunny...

Will you need me, at ease, at ease
Come here, come here, would you please
Listen, lovely, take these, take these
Heartbreak, cut it in 2s and 3s

Why’s it sunny, why’s it always sunny...

I once went wandering into the light
I know there’s nothing but the beating of the sun
Tell me that I need to put up a fight
And watch as I get ready to run

I once went wandering into the night
Knowing there’s nothing for me when it’s done
Tell me that I need to put up a fight
And watch as I get ready to run

The best we perceive
Give and don’t receive
You can always leave
The best to believe

Why’s it sunny, why’s it always sunny...
