Track Name: Patterns
autonomy
galaxies turning into spacetime
not so exceeded by the black and white
rainbows that bleed out colorblind
light that never touched our eyes


I was consumed by your aurora
born from somewhere in the last world
only time will tell us how this story goes
have you ever been there

a glass door between us keeping out the noise
from the empty space between ourselves
until one day a comet crashed and lightning struck the sky
have you ever seen one?

have you ever stopped?

the feeling never stops
the ceilings falling off
the speaker never talks
the wheels are coming off

colorblind but I still see the patterns in my head
criticized by everything that no one ever said
yeah I still see the patterns I still see the patterns
on everything everyone everywhere
and knowing of why we wouldn’t be better off dead
Track Name: Yarn
wake up, sunshine
you stayed too long on the other side
let’s get back to our home and our lights

your bedroom’s burning up in flames
you’ll never get out before it’s too late
it’s your move you are now in the race

show us in the sky tonight
see the shadow smoke divide
watch projections of shades she can make

why does it feel like a living hell when we remember why
fire at me with everything you can find I’ll come back on your side

the animal has been revived
it drags you back to the other side
it may render your death in the night

burning up all your breath and body

she just can’t keep up with all the time that she spent defending
fire at me with everything you can find I’ll come back at you with ice

frozen, dreaming of an endless summer
oceans forming in another world
a world that is meant for us
future generations connected by a memory in us

does it burn like hell does it boil your blood when you stop pretending
when you are the one that’s all you find when you were defending
fire is the ever-changing beacon to the ending
Track Name: Alright, Spaceboy
he was not quite a man
he was alive and breathing
purpose revealed itself
spaceboy


sent down from the temple
meant to make earth tremble
a heart that doesn’t feel
no shadow walks behind him
but he’s alright
he’s alright

his mission, cure conditions
of the mind, human binds
vision impaired by the
endless night

a heart that doesn’t feel
no shadow walks behind him but
he’s heavy, wrecking, killing, burning everything
and he gets what he wants and then loses it all in a second
and he’ll never let it go ‘cause nothing will ever contend for his want
for revenge
Track Name: Twist
coiled up in telephone wire as you drip dry your brain
can’t water log me anymore, phase out the pain
and all the people that you knew are twisting away
coiled up in telephone wire as you drip dry your brain


and the power lines above hardwired to the land
our current overflows our minds, we do what we can
coiled up in telephone wire, untangled from the day
understand me when I leave you it’s cause I want to stay


I was caught in a loop born into déjà vu
while we wait to be found with the wires in our heads
calculate who controls what goes in and what comes out
when we peak, burrow down to our desires in the ground
that’s enough of me
cut the line
set me free
Track Name: Cold Sun
overhead I see a premonition
the cold sun is making a transition
all the poor little souls that never see the light of day
and the storm rolls in and the birds fly away

it feels like something’s wrong
why don’t you run
the shadow of the sun

yes my darling it comes for you
you know that you want it and it’s made for you
trapped in a basement with nowhere to move
forsake yourself and find your one

the very earth, it has become her shackles
she walks alone with roses and red apples
I can’t bear the thought of what would happen next
if she ignores the beating feeling in her chest

it feels like something’s wrong
why don’t you run
the shadow of the sun

yes my darling it comes for you
you know that you want it and it’s made for you
trapped in a basement with nowhere to move
forsake yourself and find your one
Track Name: Chemical X
my lungs trapped in bars
my arms chained to hands
myself aligned with my spine
my head drowned in clouds

what now?

and she lets me know where my soul leads
and I let her know when my heart bleeds
what has changed so far was nothing we deserved
what will come along will surely be unsure

I feel
feel it come
it burns like blood
it’s love
it’s here
from home
up above
I want
you now
my dear
my shining sun
Track Name: Woods
hey you, let’s go
where shadows hide

ooh, Ooh

what is this place?
could it be God
where is the one
who guides the lost
ghosts surround me
possessed by good
destined to live
in alien woods

pray on the weak
tangled feet
Track Name: Final Boss Stage
do you believe in circumstances?
is that not what you thought brought you here?
why would we ever want to leave this place?
we have nothing to fear
if only
dark eyes
if only
love was never-ending

every time I ask myself
is this really happening?
I hear no answer of course
if I did why would I believe
if only
if only I was strong enough to be scared
if only
you could show me what you’re made of

you might try but there is
no excuse for you
no excuse for you
there is no excuse for you
there’s no excuse

in this room you will wait to meet the final boss

spent too much time in the sea
gotta come up for air sometimes
when only one word from your mouth
will come back to follow you round

there is no excuse for you
there is no excuse for you
there is no excuse for you
there’s no excuse
