Track Name: Pocket Toon
Blink one eye to see clear
through the veil of sun.
I stroll in to secrets every time I wake.
When you go I shatter in to mirror pieces, falling.
Reflecting islands,
drowning in tie-dye oceans that come from where?

It's been a while since I gave my feet a good wash,
I try to make it in-admissive that I missed a few spots.
So I take a big hop back on to the glass horse
and gallop 'round the land, such a bludgeoning force -
Of truth and devotion with emotions like an ocean.
My rivers flow through souls, like wizards brewin' potions
or serums, ensured
to provide delirium to the evil man
who thought he had no fear in him.
Forgive me if my words are hard to understand
I'm new to this dimension, I'm just tryin' to find my stance.
It's appropriate for me to disassociate -
The bleak truth I'll face from my innate grace.
I gotta channel my nature and savour good flavour.
Stop me now, before it gets a whole lot stranger!
Track Name: Crust Wall
Feel the weight of breath fill you.
All alone, somewhere in this circle you can’t know.

Hold the Earth in your palm.

Reach behind your eyes,
retrieve pockets of sunlight.
Don’t forget them behind the shell.
Cease to blind yourself.

Plant the seed.
Constantly shattering, I will be your rain
Whispering.

Hold the Earth in your palm.

Reach behind your eyes,
Retrieve pockets of sunlight.
Don’t forget them behind the shell.
Cease to blind your
Crust!
Track Name: Dizen
Lift up your love.

Cease this noise so clear.
Drown me away from distorted air.
I can’t believe my newborn eyes,
as the truth evades me.

How fevered be the dreams
put upon the void within and beyond.
Sleeping crippled with terrors of ends to come -
Dehydrate as the desert of human love

Hold on the wire I’ve trusted to you
Don’t grow too tired
to recite the songs of our heart beating roots

In this city of walls, you remind me -
no architect to author no plan,
only wrinkled hands.
But the ancient light of the sun -
Truth be told, not the only one.
How long until we know which ones have gone out?

Come to me and wash away my gravity.
I know my place within the dark
Please leave just one.

Hold on the wire I’ve trusted to you
Don’t grow tired
to recite the songs of our hearts beating
Track Name: Captive in Colour
Light the dark, wandering aimlessly.
Dance with all the others
chasing comet tails.
Time to shake off the cold and that ever looming glow.
Time to wash off the gold, take on that beautiful unknown.

I can’t feel it, but I know it fills my heart.
I can’t feel it, as my everything dissolves.
I can’t feel it, but I know it fills my heart.
I can’t feel it, as my everything dissolves.

Now I gotta gotta shake it and groove.
Slip into the ocean I have tread, let loose.
Come on come on come on don’t hang on,
I love you, time to set things a new

I can’t feel it, but I know it fills my heart.
I can’t feel it, as my everything dissolves.
I can’t feel it, but I know it fills my heart.
I can’t feel it, as my everything dissolves.
Track Name: Lion Sports
Crimson skies,
sun is tradin'
secrets with the night.
Anticipatin'
the storm that's on the rise.

It comes
to bleed us dry.
Mind and soul compromised.
Twisted design.

If lions lived for
killing every creature like it were a sport
like those torn lords
grip our world tightly in their claws.

I'm inclined to believe that
we're strong enough to fortify
ourselves in honour,
of the fire in our hearts.
For we are trudgin' through
a swamp of despair
but that's no reason to
turn a blind eye to what you know is true.

If lions lived for
killing every creature like it were a sport
like those torn lords
grip our world tightly in their claws.
Track Name: Murmurisms
Wrap yourself in decayed cocoon
Ridden with whispers of manufactured dooms
Safe from the sound of falling skies
Your comfortable womb, what’s the compromise
Safe from the sound
Say nothing, do nothing, close your eyes

Are you of poisoned veins grown to take
Echoing surmans founded in faith
Can we reverse this loss of fresh air?

Away with these demons, we dress, serenade
While there’s still time
Today, find your heart in the Earth you create
While there’s still time

Take one more and give nothing back
False teeth smile growing neglect fact to fact
Safe from the sound, sun setting eyes
Do something, just do something

Are you of poisoned veins grown to take
Echoing sermons founded in faith
Can we reverse this loss of fresh air?

Away with these demons, we dress, serenade
While there’s still time
Today, find your heart in the Earth we create
While there’s still time

Can we build a new world, before all we’ve grown begins to wilt?

Find your love now
