about

The odds of existing and experiencing reality as you do are basically zero. Yet, here you are. Capable of love and passion in the cold universe's blink of an eye. The end makes everything disheartening and special at the same time.

Track Name: Denser Suns
Father do you think the sun will disappear?
No son, it’s been there a billion years
Mother will the red moon fall from the sky?
No child, it’s the spirit of the night

Surrender, don’t ask when
The mass will swallow everything with the force of a dying star

So Orion, he’s the only one you know?
The shining knight among the stars he glows
Oh my dear, I think the clouds are out tonight
So we’ll wait for a clear tomorrow-sky

Surrender, don’t ask why
The mass will swallow everything with the force of a dying star

You left me in eclipse behind the cold dark moon
In this vacuum tomb I’ll stay here for awhile
The dreams they pierced me at the speed of newborn light
Our debris is swept away by denser suns, hotter suns

Surrender, don’t ask how
The mass will swallow everything with the force of a dying star

The light is not ours
Slides through space
At the blink of an eye (Surrender, don’t ask why)
The fruitful planets freeze alive so the barren ones can thrive
Track Name: 5 O'Clock Shadows
The light starts to fade at the end of the day
5 o’clock shadows appear on your face
Dried grass is stubble upon the earth’s chin
As I wait by the window and winter begins
As I sit by the window and winter rolls in

Suspended between day and night
In the dusk of the shadows of your fading smile

Dust glows and falls in the gold beams of sun
I think it’s old skin that you’ve shed
You’re sifting and drifting away before my eyes
I leave so I won’t see you go
Track Name: Nothing but the Best
You fell in love
With the shell of a corpse who just cannot give enough
Push came to shove
With the confidence man of dishonor who can not get enough (Hey!)

So sorry for you, I wish nothing but the best
Keep you head up high and drown yourself in wine
I’m so sorry for you, I wish nothing but the best
Sing a lullaby, pretend the world is fine, oh

You fell in love
With the heart of a corpse who just cannot steal enough
Look up to the stars
And question the gods why they conjured blue demons in my heart (Hey!)

Blame fate on our way down
The Morrigan sings battle cries

You’ll find the best of the best, you’re fine
And you’ll forget all the rest, you’re fine
You’ll find the best of the best, you’re fine
And you’ll forget all the rest, you’re fine, oh
Track Name: Be Loud
Wind blows, ice cold
She knows I’m growing old
The breeze, she skirts across my face
Keeps me awake day after day

Oh come on love be loud, I won’t say a word
Let the wind howl out, let your voice be heard
Oh come on love be loud, that’s what I prefer
Let your cold howl out, let your voice be heard
Will I make it through the night?

Red nose, blood cold
She knows my bones will unfold
From the joints abused by icy lace
Cause me to shake day after day

Even when my heat is gone
I’ll belong to the harbinger of winter when she calls
And I’m buried in snow, two feet down below
I lost my rosy glow and all of my toes
Track Name: I Guess You Can Stay
I didn’t mean to leave the door open
And the welcome mat was a neighborly formality
But I guess that it’s convenient that there are two chairs on the porch
And enough room in my life for a you

So I guess you can stay
Oh, I guess you can stay oh
As long as you’re here anyway
I guess that you can stay

I didn’t mean to set an extra dinner plate
Or to bake enough lasagna for us both
But I guess that it’s convenient that the night’s plans just fell through
It looks like I’ll be spending time with you

Oh, I guess you can stay for awhile
Track Name: Sideframe
I see a silhouette, her sideframe, as we gaze wide-eyed at the stars
I see that silhouette, her sideframe, trace the vapor trails to Mars

I see her sideframe and I sure don’t want to miss it
Boy you knew I had a two way ticket

I see a silhouette, her sideframe, sipping slyly from her glass
I see that silhouette, her sideframe, steal a sneaky sidelong glance
I see a silhouette, her sideframe, dancing wildly in my mind
I see that silhouette, her sideframe, slipping sideways next to mine

I’ve known you just long enough to know that you’re just enough
To keep the world from hurting
I’ve known you just long enough to know that you’re just enough
To make me want to keep exploring

Out of time
You’re sideframe in my mind
You’re (out)side (of the time) frame in my mind
Track Name: Fancy Mysterious
Tryna get ahead
There’s a train in the station conductor’s not waitin’
So if there’s a seat imma take it
Step out of my old skin, I don’t need it on this side of the tracks
Tryna stay ahead
Keep goin’, keep growin’, keep growing up, keep growing out
Of the old ways, the old smiles and joys
And a voice proclaims you can’t stay in this station

But let me braid dandelions into my hair
And twirl by the light of the moon
Mixing up mischief from midnight to noon
Waxing my wings by a waxing gibbous
Flights of frivolous fancy, mysterious
What can I do to go back to you?

Tryna get ahead
Drag myself out of bed
Guess I misplaced that spring in my step
Let it rust with the other tools in the shed
Tryna stay ahead
Keep goin’, keep sowin’, keep showing up, keep showing off
The new ways, the new smiles and joys
And a voice proclaims you can’t stay in this station

Then one day you’ll cry when you wake up and find
That in Dreamland the pixies rubbed juice on your eyes
And you slept in their valley for the rest of your life
While saplings became strapping pines
And you worked at a job you didn’t like
For everyday nine to five
And you wonder how you let that child die
Track Name: So Long
Been waitin’ for so long, been holdin out for far too long
Time’s eating us through to curdle our blood
Keep the record playing till our time ajurns
But find acceptance? I’ll never learn

Been waitin’ for so long, been holdin out for too damn long
Your black eyes a clue, prepare for the flood
Won’t see devils and-a angels in a passing turn
But I been waitin so long

For something else to talk about to pass the time away, other than dismay
But if you think I’ll make it through, you got another thing comin’ to you
Our time together is overdue
Find your peace, shut out my coup
You got another thing comin’ to you

Woah. woah.

Been waitin’ for so long, been holdin out for too damn long
Time’s eating us through, our curdling our blood
Won’t see devils and angels in a passing turn
But I been waitin so long

So long, move along

For something else to talk about to pass the time away, other than dismay
But if you think I’ll make it through, you got another thing comin’ to you
And I been-a waiting I’ve been-a waiting
I’ve been-a waiting I’ve been-a waiting

It’s over for now so long!
Track Name: Fancy Mysterious (Outro)
I looked out and across a collapsing universe
I saw the sideframe of a child beneath a tree
And as I watched, she reached out and caught a falling leaf
And I caught a glimpse of peace
