Track Name: Constellation
Remember when the lake grew out of stone
and bathed our skin?
In love's light we longed to be alone
but we grew thin

We swallowed stars: the light filled up our chests,
a constellation.
Such love we had but never did we rest:
pure elation

All we ever need is energy

We brighten up
we raise a cup
we wash the wounds that leave us numb

All we ever need is energy
Follow me into the black sea

Here lies green eyes:
inside, tongue-tied, we'll realize.
Track Name: Let Them Stare
All the dust that grows inside my veins
is not to your taste
Oh! Be mindful of your memories
don't let them go to waste

Breathe it in and slowly swallow
let them stare they'll surely follow
you into an endless tomb
foresight, tonight, the darkest room

Vision blurred inside a carnival crowd:
I'll say that I am proud
But how I'll miss your oh so beautiful bones
and I'll try to drown out loud

I won't make it, no I wont' make it
I can't take it, no I can't take it
Track Name: Midnight Moon
O, lover! O, desire!

In the heavy heat of endless night
the sun will rise again and bring new light
I am whole beneath the midnight moon
the sun comes far too soon

When I found you in the deepest darkness
you were laughing, I was almost breathless
but in the spiral dawn
we became one

Leave it to me to love you
Track Name: Constellation (Reprise)
Hold my hand
we stand atop the swollen stones
Breathing wind
old skin protects our aching bones

All we ever need is energy
Follow me into the black sea
