Track Name: Signal
Help 
Me 
Feel 
Me 

Land of the the thieves 
Home of the strange
Fuck what you hear them say 

Gypsy was a queen 
Man, can she sing 
We’re gonna eat her alive 

Feel 
Me 
Bleed
-ding

Blacksmith, he cries, 
“She was the love of my life!” 
The joker is quiet, but for a sigh 

Come gather around now
It’s truly a sight to see 
We know your eyes are sore 

Send a signal 
Send a girl 
Take her from here 

I know when the sky bleeds
My heart aches 
My heart beats 

For the truelove, he longs
But the truelove is gone 
And the sad song she sings 
Is for the sake of us all 

Oh, when will she come? 
Track Name: Bug
You got the bug crawling
Under your skin again
You got a bug crawling ‘round

I don’t care about
What he said, she said
I don’t care what they said

You sailed away
But you got seasick, didn’t you?
You sailed away, but you got sick

What you gave me
I can’t give away
What you gave I gotta keep

You talk a lot when
The sun’s sitting next to you
I talk a lot in my sleep

I dream of your face
When it was still beautiful
I dream again and again

I got the bug crawling
all around everything
I got a bug deep inside

What you gave me
I can’t give away
What you gave I gotta keep
Track Name: Televisioner
Televisioner

I was sewed up and in my head
Dreaming of a planet where I never been
Even though I came here by myself
I hang on to what thread is self

Even when I wake
I’m inside

Televisioner

Televisioner, don’t beat up on yourself
I was not sick, I hurt myself
Even though I came here all alone
I ran too far, cause I was on loans

Well, I was on loans
I was on loans

I was on loans

Even when I wake
I’m inside

Televisioner
Track Name: Shelly
Shelly, my love
How long
How long

How long
Have we
How long have we known?

Believe me
When I say
I have never

Felt this
Way before
I have never felt

I live

On

On & on

I have dependencies
That the FDA
Approves

Now I sleep again
Now I can
See green

I live

On

On & on

No more sun
No more sun
So get lost
I’m lost

I have two heads
And four hearts
It seems
Track Name: Drones
I’m the only one
Only you are me
I feel you bend my bones
And stop before they break

Yeah, I know
Only one is free

Yeah, I know
Yeah, I know

Only one is free

Bending bones
Bending bones
Bending bones will break

I can feel the chain
I can hear him say,
“Tell them all you know,
Tell them everything.”

I don’t wanna say a thing

Yeah, I know
Yeah, I know
Bending bones will break

Yeah, I know
Yeah, I know
Only one is free

I’m alright
I’m alright
Track Name: Savage
Through the window pane
Echoes sun, like the fall
Somewhere it’s still here

Though I’m gone from there
I can hear everything
Carried through the trees

Let the sun cut the sky
Let it bleed all night
Cover ourselves in blood
Wait ’til it dries

I can hear them howl
I can feel them there
I can’t see at all

Though I know their joke
I can’t help but laugh
As I wait my turn

Let the sun cut the sky
Let it bleed all night
Cover ourselves in blood
Wait ’til it dries
Track Name: Lion
I was a lion
Never choked fast
Or breathed past wars

I was inspired
Never sought my minds,
I lived besides

When you were fine
You didn’t live inside,
So you never saw me

And now you are not fine
Never leave my side,
I broke in half oh no

I was a lion
Track Name: Worm Tongue
They only gotta
Hold two cents
They only gotta
Hold my time to know

They only gotta
Hold two cents
They only gotta
Waste my time to know

They only gotta
Walk this way
They only gotta
Walk this way to know

Well, I know
I know, I know

They only gotta
Hold two cents
They only gotta
Hold my time to know

They only gotta
Hold two cents
They only gotta
Waste my time to know

They only gotta
Walk this way
They only gotta
Walk this way to know

They only gotta
Walk this way
They only gotta
Walk this way to know

Well, I know
I know, I know
Track Name: Gloom
Through this sky
Float feathers I will stomp
Into the ground

Now this well-lit day’s gone
Are there still white-burned eyeballs?

Hawk would fly on red wings
Leather feather falling

These pink smudged black
Long hands whither down the face
I’m lying in the back room
Take me by my ring and pull away

Away

Slurring one-point being
You unravel fitfully

Knuckles snapped through knit skin
A misaligning rib cage

These pink smudged black
Long hands writhing on the face
A lion in the back room
Take it by its ring and pull away

Away

And this sky
It don’t know
What we want
Track Name: Burner
Memory

Every brain
Slowly Burns
In front of me

The circle the wind
The circle inside
Nothing inside
River pass by
River pass by

Bottom of the well
Bottom of the well
Never fell down there
Never saw down there

Memory

She glares, oh
How she glares
In front of me

The circle wind
The circle inside
Nothing inside
River pass by
River pass by

Tell ‘em I forgive
Tell ‘em I forgave
Tell ‘em I wonder
Have they done the same?

In my dream
She was blue
And knew I’d
Been left alone

I never seen
So a true a soul
In a body

Then I drank
The water
She gave me

Then I kissed
The lips
She gave me

Then the room began
To break and fall
All around us

And I smiled
At the point missed
As she brushed away
Track Name: Days
I stretched the days so far
They snapped in my hands
I used to play with days
Their blurry faults appeared so small
And I don’t know now
What I wanted to do
With a room turned over
And a day that’s
Too long to exist

So I walk where the ice breaks
I go swim in a rain cloud
And though the river is unfrozen

I Keep Waiting

So slow my pupils
Swim apart from themselves
Anyone can live my life
It’s one shard of glass
You step on
With trees on fast forward
They chew through my head
And someone I don’t know
Is kissing time forward,
Sat in my chair

I walk
Where the
Ice breaks
I go swim in
A rain cloud
And though the river is
Unfrozen

I’ll Keep Waiting

She started singin’ songs
Under her breath now
And I lay in bed
Until my back curled
A girl so happy
All by herself and
And I just don’t know
What am I gonna do?

World keeps happening
All around me
I’m lapsing as time clinks
Against my ears
World keeps happening to myself
She gasped and what else am I gonna do?
Track Name: Sun
I know you came long
You came so far
And I know the same sun
Same golden glow

The light that holds you
Holds too tight
I don’t know
How much to let go

I feel there’s only
Two ways
Maybe four

Only where you go
Is where you go

And I know it seems long
Too long, I know
But please don’t go now
Don’t set golden glow

The light is low now
You sink in sand
And I heard the sound
Way over there

You hold me close
Though we know
Too well, we’re old
(Only some of them
are, anyway)

And I know we swing
Around the sun
And I know what came
Will come again

Don’t let way
We’ve been here before
Don’t let way
We’ve been here before

Sun
