Track Name: The Clouds Slip Behind the Moon
Take the flight of the stairs to the street
And all I see are the ways in which
You could hurt me again
Hear the sirens, feel the sounds
And all I think of are the ways in which everything is vulnerable
To the pressure cracks in pavement
To the spider-web fractures in glass
A new moon peaks through there to be hung in the sky
Should I really mind?

All the words that we say circulate in the mind;
Ricochets off the murmuring crowds
Through the garden, through the aisles
And I must ask to myself:
Am I, am I just this pitiful?
To the seismic throes under pressure
Reverberates through the wild
A silent silver eye blinks there hung in the sky
Should I really mind?

To avoid all the love that is pure and complete:
The only possession worth pursuing in time
I frantically disengage myself from the chaos
And all these messy possibilities
To jagged fault-line scrawls through the centre
I’m your volcano in the ground
A new moon for the clouds to slip behind
Should I really mind?

No, I don’t mind
No, I don’t mind
No, I don’t mind
Track Name: World (The Price of Love)
I turn sideways to the sun
Keep my thoughts from everyone
It's a jungle, I'm a freak
Hear me talk, but never speak

So I'm stepping out of time
Because breaking is a crime
And it may all be too late
But I've no passion for this hate

That's the price of love (that's the price of love)
Can you feel it (can you feel it)
If we could buy it now (that's the price of love)
How long would it last (that's the price of love)

And when this building is on fire
These flames can't burn any higher
I turn sideways to the sun
And in a moment I am gone

That's the price of love (that's the price of love)
Can you feel it (can you feel it)
If we could buy it now (that's the price of love)
How long would it last (that's the price of love)

That's the price of love (that's the price of love)
Can you feel it (can you feel it)
If we could buy it now (that's the price of love)
How long would it last (that's the price of love)

(Mid)

That's the price of love (that's the price of love)
Can you feel it (can you feel it)
If we could buy it now (that's the price of love)
How long would it last (that's the price of love)

(that’s the price of love)
That’s the price of love (can you feel it)
If we could buy it now (that’s the price of love)
How long will it last (that’s the price of love)
Track Name: Disfigurines
It’s a stylish hell for our Jezebel
Through crowded rooms spawn tiny doors
A hairline crack in the porcelain mouth
She’ll desperately need to get through to you
And what she covets won’t be what she needs
These tiny doors lead to misery
But she’ll play the game until everyone sees
How to celebrate
How to truly feel the light

What do you want me to say?
What do you want me to be?
Does this devil look into you?
We’re disfigured for

Mantle men taut as green game board felt
Wheeze soliloquy, grin shiny white teeth
You’re the number and they’re the sum
At the end of the day, it comes to what they choose
As all the children make like elephants
See, we occupy our own time and space
But you’re still the number and you’re still the herd
It’s the glue that binds
And it never seems to break

What do you want me to say?
What do you want me to be?
Do your ghosts speak within you?
We’re disfigured for life

Don’t you see?
What would you rather be?
It’s a microwave
Slip into tombs
Kiss the sick, kiss the beautiful
As if the time we spend won’t be erased
It’s a vivid image burned into life
Scorched into names
Dance into the night
By your hand
You can mingle with the dead
Before you realize
No inner circles exist

What do you want me to say?
Oh, what do you want me to say?
Track Name: Plexiglas
There’s a key to the lock
It evolves to the latch
C’mon
(Here is your end)
Watch the dominos fall
As the consequences sprawl
C’mon
(Here is your end)
This is everything you’ve wanted
After everything you’ve seen
C’mon
(Here is your end)
It’s the key to the heart
As frequencies slip apart
C’mon
(Here is your end)

Nothing, nothing

And it’s cruel (Here is the end)
It’s as cruel as the sun
It’s as cruel as the rain
What you’ve now undone
You can’t lock it up again
It’s as cruel as the wind
It’s as cruel as the flood
Nothing’s here to succumb
To the whims of just one

Clack mechanics of the teeth
Sharp to flat; soot to sweet
C’mon
(Here is your end)
Over here, over there
Arranged disorder; aligned in pairs
C’mon
(Here is your end)
A talisman to remind
There’s a safety in the blind
C’mon
(Here is your end)
Our lethal language plies
Darts the lovely, weary eyes
C’mon
(Here is your end)

Nothing, nothing

And it’s cruel (Here is the end)
It’s as cruel as the sun
It’s as cruel as the rain
What you’ve now undone
You can’t lock it up again
It’s as cruel as the wind
It’s as cruel as the flood
Nothing’s here to succumb
To the whims of just one
Track Name: Sleeper Assassin
Every time I stack jerked ink of language
It’s all wrong
It’s already happened
Every time I seem to wake, I sleep
Before long, slung words become so garbled
It’s already happened
I know your face
I know this town and its streets

They sing
Sha, la, la
Hallelujah
Feel the sunlight
They sing
Sha, la, la
Hallelujah
See the moonlight
(It’s already happened)

We’re the sleeper
Sleeper assassins
We’re the sleeper
Sleeper assassins
Oh, oh
Oh

Every dream is like holographic
Portals
Into other dimensions
Backdrops of the background moods and its speech
Every room is a familiar room
And it’s all wrong
We’ve already happened
Through the window, I can hear the birds convey

They sing
Sha, la, la
Hallelujah
Become sunlight
They sing
Sha, la, la
Hallelujah
Be the moonlight
(It’s already happened)

We’re the sleeper
Sleeper assassins
We’re the sleeper
Sleeper assassins
Oh, oh
We’re the sleeper
Sleeper assassins
We’re the sleeper
Sleeper assassins
Oh, oh - oh
Track Name: Clear Cut / Rain Forest
Did you ever want to see what they see?
Did you ever want to see and eventually found…
Hiding in the corners of revolving eyes
Drifting to the surface to instinctually seek

Out into the world, we’re slaughtered
Butchered to the floor and continually we
Speak inside the rooms of revolving eyes
Wishing you’re the one who can wake me from this…

Sound pulls the dark
From the light
Shades to the dark
To the light
Flesh and flowers bloom yet despite
Nothing is the same
It’s alive

There’s no feeling
There’s no feeling
No feeling
Here

Eliminate the wound with sutures
Gaping in the hole is the whole of all we’re
Searching in the space just beyond your eyes
Absolute centre where the smile becomes a…

Sound pulls the dark
From the light
Shades to the dark
To the light
Flesh and flowers bloom yet despite
Nothing is the same
It’s alive

There’s no feeling
There’s no feeling
No feeling
Here
There’s no feeling
There’s no feeling
No feeling
Here

Slow are these wings to unfold of their properties
Aglow in the space in your mind to break from fantasy
A witness to this change to become; something to renew
Independent from your hesitance

Passing all the houses that align the sidewalk
Muted in the night to the silent tick-tock
Put the car in park and you rub your eyes
Allow yourself to love again and eventually you’ll see
