Track Name: White Light
Lauded for your bright white light
Pulled it from inside; wide-eyed
You'll find all the answers

Fearless as a young lion
Give me a tall tree to die on
You'll find all the answers

Open your mind

Frightened wings in a dusk of dust
Fountain statues grown from lust
You'll find all the answers

Open your mind
Track Name: Redwood
Driven to a dream, the reckless and obscene
are bombing all the city streets
Voices speak the words, though sightless and unheard
they pull you from the redwood tree

Muscle in the earthquake
Moon make the branches break

In the basement sound, the blood begins to pound
we are chomping at the bit
You are in the leaves, a sunset to receive;
a broken back was all they sent

Muscle in the earthquake
Moon make the branches break

I would be your spine, though I know that I am caving in
Full moon on the rise, thought I might tip into the ocean
Track Name: Soundless Sea
I believe every little piece of me
will fall at ease in an ever soundless sea
Dust to dust there’s nothing on the surface
I dive in and let my vision readjust

All the lies we speak
All the dreams we seek

I can see the wonder underneath
The soundless sea will sing it’s song for me
Waste this life staring at an empty screen
forever dead from another new vaccine

All the lies we speak
All the dreams we seek
Track Name: Passing Ships
If I feel you pull away
I’m gonna try
to see your face another day
before I die

Hear your lips
feel your words
Passing ships
the common curse

Home in your love
I am

To think I’d given up your touch
for a song
Thought I’d need another love
I was wrong

Hear your lips
feel your words
Passing ships
will never return

Home in your love
I am

In your love I am home
Track Name: Just a Taste
Just a face swallowing the sunlight
Just in case you never get to feel right

All of the fairytales they tell
about our love now
This love is turning around
Far from the edge now
This love is turning around

Just a taste of honey from your old life
Fill my space, honey, if you don't mind

All of the fairytales they tell
about our love now
This love is turning around
Far from the edge now
This love is turning around
Track Name: Calliope
You're a sight for sore eyes
You're a bright red sunrise
You're my one and only
You're a cold Calliope

Give me cover
Give me a last kiss
Take me over,
away from all of this

You give me melody
while the sea is boiling
I give you desire
You consume my fire

Give me cover
Give me a last kiss
Take me over,
away from all of this

Give me cover
Give me a last kiss
Take me over,
away from all of this

You won't hear me now,
but I'll be speaking loud
Track Name: New Sun
Dream easy, my kin
voices lost inside the din
The feeble begin to mend their hollow lies
Open your eyes

A new sun rising,
it's time to come out of hiding!
A new sun rising,
it's time for the light!

I lust after green,
the color of the newborn leaves
Don't sit still, won't sit still
from all the pain I've seen
There will be no more, child

A new sun rising,
it's time to come out of hiding!
A new sun rising,
it's time for the light!

There will be no more, my love

A new sun rising,
it's time to come out of hiding!
A new sun rising,
it's time for the light!
Track Name: Nowhere Now
You were right:
the city looks brighter from here
I recognize:
like the city, my thoughts were unclear

Fallen down
Keeps me down

Nowhere now
but I’ll come and find you

Years and years
I wait for the kick drum
I felt your fears
but I’ll never leave them

Fallen down
Keeps me down

Nowhere now
but I’ll come and find you
Nowhere now
but I’ll be there for you
I’ll come and find you
I’ll be there for you

Fallen down
Keeps me down

Nowhere now
but I’ll come and find you
Nowhere now
but I’ll be there for you
I’ll come and find you
I’ll be there for you
I’ll come and find you

In the hurricane
of love and hate
I still remain
Track Name: Black Blood
Face up on dry earth
too sallow to sing your worth
Wonder why we pray
to be golden another day

Ocean of fire
grown for the mother's pyre
Mother, your black blood
was sold for another sun

Dancing 'round the core
