Track Name: Space Camp
I baked my brains at space camp
I swear I left all wrong
your hand was so complacent
when you pulled me along
oh my Grom
you start to play along
oh dear
this is what I want
I baked my brains at space camp
that's where we shared our sighs
I fell like clay to know you
to feel you no device
oh my Grom
you start to play along
oh dear
this is what I want
we won't be out of place in ghoulish costumes
I'd be a snake just to slither near you
it's such a chore to take the world too serious
I wanna make a noise until no one hears us
can you hear us
can you hear us
Track Name: The Colonies
I can't see anything in front of me
oh I'll just learn to mask it
it was my last night in the colonies
so we perspired in blurry shades of blue
I feel so alive now
I feel so alive now
In the dark you told me
told me to be alright
by the lamp you held me
and softly said goodbye
I've been a monument ever since
a history of when you would write
that you'd be mine every time
even when I'm boring, tasteless,
and my lips are dry
In the dark you told me
told me to be alright
by the lamp you held me
and softly said goodnight
Track Name: Slurring
Bones are fretting
why did you let it get so hard
for yourself
Don't you let it take the better part
so take the cross or grab the crown
let's get this all worked out
I've been restless too for what it's worth
you can't see past the earth
doing fine
out of your mind
better with time
better in time
Face gets redder
was it your temper
or the wine that you poured
now you're slurring
tell me what for
so take the cross or grab the crown
let's get this all worked out
I've been restless too for what it's worth
you can't see past the earth
doing fine
out of your mind
better with time
better in time
aren't you so tired of walking a line
are you still wired
I'll tell you again
put me to sleep or bury it
I'm moving on
you go to sleep soon
I'm gone
I'm moving on
doing fine
out of my mind
better with time
better in time
Track Name: Cherry Frosted House
I wanna live in a cherry frosted house
I wanna live with you
all my friends would say
you look so much better glazed
all my friends would sing
you look much better free
make myself a bed and lay down
in the clouds
when I'm with you
there's no coming down
they say heaven's not a place
that exists on the ground
but I don't hear much from them
when you come around
cherry frosted house
I wanna live in a comfy little home
I wanna live with you
all my friends would say
you look so much better glazed
all my friends would sing
you look much better free
make myself a bed and lay down
in the clouds
when I'm with you
there's no coming down
they say heavens not a place
that exists on the ground
but I don't hear much from them
when you come around
cherry frosted house
Track Name: Fool's Gold Paradise
Everyone wants their
words to be golden
when their whole world turns to ice
but I won't live in this
fool's gold paradise
we wanted to shake it
like a bad dream
and wake to the morning light
find yourself on a dusty shelf
you're gonna be alright
every waking horror
you'll meet
you can succeed and
rebuild and excel
love will set us free
so live to love
We're on a slow ride honey
now the waves are crashing
back and forth
that's when I turn to tell you
we're only getting higher
than ever before
tell me why you're frail
why it all hurts still
so we can go to greater heights
hate can be reduced but
love can't be defined
Say your mind
Say your mind
We're on a slow ride honey
now the waves are crashing
back and forth
that's when I turn to tell you
we're only getting higher
than ever before
Track Name: Cleopatra
Cleopatra play nices
I can feel you
sending frigid shivers
down my spine
I won't be the last to say this
I am not the first to say this
go on get lost
Come on baby
play it cool
you know how to
bat your eyes and make me
act a fool
I wonder does it sound familiar
is it something you've considered
tell me it's not
aside from clever lines
tell me what it is
you've got to hide
guess this means I've called you out
For you and I alike
I think it would be best if you've play nice
don't play the fool now
Cleopatra play nice
go on get lost
Track Name: Clevertake Daydream Pt. 2
These lungs they pray for water
some days I'm gone don't bother
this night stay dry
until the sun I never
dreamed a world like this
What's a life of fighting
forward motion to get carried away
if this is what the fighting's for
I can't remember why I acted so brave
if I can't having the answers now
then I'll be on my way
these graves they pray for shelter
they're dead and gone don't bother
this night stay dry
until the sun I never
dreamed a world like this
What's a life of fighting
forward motion to get carried away
if this is what the fighting's for
I can't remember why I acted so brave
if I can't have the answers now
Track Name: Monowi
I hope my name's the first drop
on the tip of your tongue
that you're alone and it reminds
you what was because the words
I never said to you slowly lose their weight
I spent too many days in Monowi
and I finally move away
when you hear my voice again
I won't be fragile in my bed
you still won't be around to tell me
what could be the matter with my head
or where you were when I needed someone
to tell me I was only hours from the sun
during the longest night when I
almost let go
waiting for the past to call
so I won't feel a thing at all
used to take my knees out from me
used to take my feet out from the ground
then you would spell my flaws
between your teeth to break my jaw
used to take my feet out from me
used to be my one and only Monowi
I hope my name's the first drop
on the tip of your tongue
that you're alone and it reminds
you what was because the words
I never said to you slowly lose their weight
I spent too many days in Monowi
and I finally move away
Track Name: The 803
Just another quiet bus ride home
lately I've been crying for no good reason
coming home to Daniel and our zoo
of a house
dancing in my swamp of a room after hours
spots of baby blue paint left a trail
up the stairs
blacking out my windows so the sun
won't find me
Sylus lost his marbles on a trip to deep space
the city was breathing and I was just a speck
on it's lung
headed east on the 803, I never really got that far
away from me it's cedar trees
that keep me in the thoughts collecting
later on I'll be gone and leave
my love in the absence
absence of my pines
A miniature tree was glowing in the absence of light
a wide eyed Bre a gleaming in awe of the sight
parking lots were home for the harsh of July
the Co-op was breeding and I was barely alive
in the garden
headed east on the 803, I never really got that far
away from me it's cedar trees
that keep me in the thoughts collecting
later on I'll be gone and leave
my love in the absence
absence of my pines
Track Name: End of an Era
I enter the storm
leaving my mind somewhere else
you said it's the end of an era
speak of a purpose something's gotta give

it's not what it seems
to tell you the truth
I don't know what's gone
and got a hold of me
you said it's a passing era
speak of a purpose somethings gotta give

didn't you know to read the signs
that got us hear
hey didn't you notice the stars align
to a new day
