Track Name: Disobedient Objects
DISOBEDIENT OBJECT

That silence is worth a thousand words
When you're the listening ear
We heard the rockets scorching the air
They always return to sender
Baby it's not right but it's a given
Baby the earth is hell
Nothing is forgiven

It's such a small planet
I wonder if we'll die fighting it
I don't know who to pray to
But I can cast shadow puppets.
Baby there is no other hell
So I love and listen.
Baby let's kick and yell
Because we're the empath (on a warpath)

Kick out the solipsistics
who's world view is I'm the only one here
We are the disobedient objects
We are the listening ears
Keep one eye open and don't lose your cool.
Keep your heart (knives) open and don't suffer the fools

Baby it's not right but it's a given
Baby the world is now
Let's make it heaven.

Kick out the solipsistics
who's world view is I'm the only one here
We are the disobedient objects
We are the listening ears
Keep one eye open and don't lose your cool.
Keep your knives (heart) open and don't suffer the fools
Track Name: Dragonhead
DRAGONHEAD

What do you have to be? You don’t have to be.
What do you have to lose? You don’t have to lose.
Where are you in your mind? You don’t have to mind.

Everywhere is anything. You aren’t getting it.
You aren’t getting it.

And if you flinch it won’t be there
Time is the one with the dragon heads
Tell us the moment you were happiest.

Are you here with us?
In from another room
We wanna hear you say
You’re here with all these living things.

If it’s not welcome
And you don’t feel welcome
If it’s not gracious
And you don’t feel gracious
Stare at the ceiling
Asleep with that feeling
If you cannot take this
Then you cannot take this

Maybe the fault line
Runs just directly underneath your house
You know you have every love.
Develop it. You’re not letting it.

And if you flinch I’d still be there
Time is the one with the dragon heads
Is it something in particular?

Are you here with us?
In from another room
Show us how you see
Things the way you do

Stare at the ceiling
Asleep with the feeling
Did you make an island
All for yourself
Take all your hurt and
Split apart atoms
If that’s your conquest
Than goodluck with that mess
If that’s your conquest
Than good luck and godbless
That is the nonsense
That leads to silence
That is the silence
That leads to nonsense.
Track Name: Elektrizitat
ELEKTRIZITAT

Is it some kind of comedy?
Are they having a good time?
I see love as the narrative
You wonder what that could do
You get what you give
And forget and forgive
So what is it
When you say you just want to live?
Fear is most of the narrative
For I do not know what
We're just numbers
And laughter
So why don't you
Cross over children
Before you're stuck in the T.V.?
Don't go into the light
Run from the light
They're here...
Track Name: Carcajou
CARCAJOU

And if we all stick together
Bless my soul
Whose the last to go
Heavy hearts
We can't feel anymore
All these years
The Carcajou
Stand by the steadfast and stare
Held my breath but held in fear
Time changes everything

The static
Hold the static

I'd hold you all now
But I'm just a witness
From the back of the book
Step right up
Shake that chandelier!
Where's the spirit?
Changing faces in the shadow n' shell
Shedding the evening star
Stand by and stare
Hold our hands before we all sleep
I had my hearts for you
But the language changed
Before we all knew

The static

Just can't stay like that anymore

If I knew what you knew than you'd know what I knew
If you go where I go than I'd go where you go...
Track Name: Thousands of Days
THOUSANDS OF DAYS

So let's kill tomorrow
And go (live) right now
Do you die to win
Or win to die-
With nothing anchored to your back?

In the first body I owned
(but that owned my mind)
Like a wind whipping the earth
In the arching of sky
But I could not find the ceiling
Until I found you working there 
Mapping the mystery out
And I found out...

That baby I
Saw myself
wanting you
Wanting me
Until the day
I haunt you
Haunting me.

In the second body I was seen
in your mirror
In the static of TV
Out of the formless, howling wind
Out of the misery
Where a touch begins everything

In the third body I was thrown
Out of a windshield into the street
Glass and blood in my hands, in my eyes, in my feet
And the doctors saw the mechanics of the work in their wheat
To come back to the place that cannot be seen
And I found out...

That baby I
Saw myself
wanting you
Wanting me
Until the day
I haunt you, haunting me.

I want you here
I want you here
I want you here
Track Name: The World is Beautiful
THE WORLD IS BEAUTIFUL

Woke up it was dark
Now it's Sunday morning in America
I'm watering the lawn
The blades of grass are one
Mowing me down
Losing pints of blood
Hearing voices now
I hum along
Floating up the stairs
Forgive us all our debts
Our medicine cabinets
Coming up for air
They don't think we know how small they're making us all feel

The hours feels like months
The minutes feel like years

The world is beautiful
That's my favorite part
I saw it on tv
Oh contented heart

There is something here
The trees are all on fire
The mountains disappear
Policemen draw their swords
Bottles all on fire
The kids are all up there
A galactic choir
Working out the words
"I love something" or
"I want to be loved"
Fragile little world
That's nothing you forget (in a thousand years)

But we ain't seen nothing yet
No we ain't seen nothing yet

The world is beautiful
That's my favorite part
I saw it on tv
Collapse into a dot

Oh contented heart
Oh galactic heart
Oh connected heart.
Track Name: Witches
WITCHES

Witches are here.
Witches are here.
Witches appear.
Track Name: Morningbird
MORNINGBIRD

The morning bird
If it rains you say, then it rains
The velvet look of faraway
The New World is an argument
That you can’t escape.
You cast a long shadow
I cast a long shadow

And what I wish to say
And what you wish to say

It’s your nearness to me
It’s the finest thing
It’s your dearness to me
It’s the finest thing that I have.

The open gate
All creation is a place to live
Destroy it or enter it
Build your city in the sun
If it rains you say then it rains
You cast a long shadow
I cast a long shadow

The morning sun
If it shines you say, then it shines
You cast a long shadow
I cast a long shadow

And what I wish to say
And what you wish to say

It’s your nearness to me
It’s the finest thing
It’s your dearness to me
It’s the finest thing that I have.
Track Name: Sleepwar
SLEEPWAR

Do I
Did I ever tell you?
You get me through.
How I forget that it's now.
It's not some dream.

Tell me
If I'm here with you now
How could the day end
Will we have our now tomorrow?
You are the wind and
I am the feather.

So now you know
So now you know it.
Always you know
Now that you know it

So I sense
You move with the heart
Your ember heartbeat glow
Pushing blood through my outcast heart

So now you know
So now you know it
Always you know
Now that you know it
Just so you know
That you just know it.
Track Name: Well Aren't You Death
WELL AREN'T YOU DEATH

Well aren't you Death
The first in the deck
I pulled the Moon card out next
Then the Tower, then the Hierophant
Devil after that
The Magician was last.
And here's what it all said
It was all for the best.

I was just trying to reach you.
I was just trying to teach you.
It's all just the same lesson
All over again
I was just trying to...

Why would you unravel
What isn't tangled at all?
You've got somewhere to be
And everything to do.

Is it falling apart? Beginning again?
What's this fear of bereavement then
Keep the battlements all from quaking apart
I saw a good omen reflecting the sun
Are you receiving that wisdom
Getting out of that fog

I was just touching that spirit
I was just hunting that carrot
All over again

Why would you unravel
What isn't tangled at all?
You've got somewhere to be
And everything to do.
Track Name: Carol-Anne
CAROL-ANNE

You are the moonlight
Beckoning silver
We heard
Your heart breaks through the door.

We know you mean it.
Take on your power.
We know you mean it.
Take on your power.
