Track Name: Biplicity
It gets colder
and the curve
of the sun
Dips lower and lower
on the horizon

My sense of time
is skewed
Slow it down
turn my gaze inward

She peeks her head out
from behind the plaintive shadows
She cries, she whispers
Her beak tip breaks on the mountain tops

It gets colder
and I've forgotten myself
Left her behind
and now she is lost

Enveloped in darkness
Cleansing darkness
Spitting me out whole
Complete

She peeks her head out
from behind the plaintive shadows
She cries, she whispers
Her beak tip breaks on the mountain tops

Her feet dig firmly into the packed dirt
Stampeded and trampled over
centuries
I'll bring my animal hooves
and you can bring your wisdom
Lets make a collision
on the floor

Is it an ocean of sound?
Of movements
and layers
with no beginning and no ending
Waving from high position
Postulating, undulating, celebrating
Rocking me
Rocking me in its bosom

Holding me present
Track Name: Dreams Like Fruit
There's a sleepy little valley
in the back of my mind
Where everything that we have ever dreamed is real

Where all of our dreams
are like fruit in the trees
Ripe for the plucking

My hands slide upwards
reaching
They are always,
Always grasping for something

Just there not quite hold 'em steady
Our dreams they are wild
and unfocused
and bright

They are big and they are golden
and they are all ours
They shimmer and they sparkle
in the early morning's light
And if we could
just pluck them
they are ours for the taking
These silvery tendrils
wrested from our imaginations

They are ours, all ours
and they always will be
Born over and over
renewed with each days passing
Track Name: Day Spring
There is a puzzle piece
a hidden language
You take your chances
in the ground
and all the spectators
they are surrounding
They are closing in
they'll have you soon
You're decomposing
Your body's filling up
Green is growing
all out of your ears
You will take one more step
into the abyss

La da da, la da da, la da da da da da

We had to make a run for it
we left your brother behind
and your father, well
he wasn't always
so kind
But I will hold you
when you freeze up
I will wipe all of the tears
from your eyes
I'll always be
by your side

La da da, la da da, la da da da da da
La da da, la da da, la da da da da da

Rest your weary head
Children at your feet
Now its time for bed
Lay yourself to sleep

We're gonna run, run, run, run come morning

Chase the monsters out
out from under their beds
Don't give up the ghost
trapped inside your head

We're gonna run, run, run, run come morning

Our feet are hitting the earth
One print at a time
Make's marks in the dirt
Leave a trail behind

We're gonna run, run, run, run come morning
Track Name: Catch In The Light
You caught me
you caught me
you caught me
looking your way

You saw me in the fading light
a half-smile on my face
You hold me up and you hold me
dear
Wrapped up in a blanket and I am
sated

There is a warmth
there is a fire
I hold it close to my chest
and the flames
grow higher
and higher
and higher

I can't believe
how this happened
I am amazed
and I am breathless
I feel complete
in your light
I can see
the forward movement

There is a warmth
there is a fire
I hold it close to my chest
and the flames
grow higher
and higher
and higher

I keep tossing up coins
they catch in the light
flashing and dazzled and spent
Track Name: Antevasin
Got a message today
in the lines of a history book
Leave it up to science
Leave it up to me
Leave it up to god

You're reading it for logic
when everything here
is such a mess
They'll kick your teeth in
They'll tear you up to shreds

Man is a god, man is a demon
you want to find a line that doesn't exist
its all intersections
Our balance is a lopsided horse

You seem to make it a goal
of yourself
to wear it all so thin
and to fray all the edges
You chop off your hands to get
to the skin
of it
I want to take them
and sew them
back to the wrists
But they won't stop moving and I can't
get the thread in

Man is a god, man is a demon
you want to find a line that doesn't exist
its all intersections
Our balance is a lopsided horse

Oh, I want you to see
