Track Name: A Nice Dependency
You thought you made a winner’s trade to keep a half life on the shelf
Erratic ways and up for days you keep your secrets to yourself
You just want to see how much it takes to be
A nice dependency on poison therapy
The same old ghost in week old clothes a picture always in your head
Is getting clear then disappears reminded dream already dead
Despite my best intentions despite my own design
I fall for your inventions and questions every time
Track Name: I Am A Flying Saucer
And so begins the game they always win
These drugs that get you so high
And so you play, they’ll make you anyway
No matter how you decide
In a hospital where I can see a million miles away
Goodbye
Cause I’m so far from where I was uneven yesterday
Another pill inside
It’s getting clear and as I disappear
Into an orbit that’s all mine
Another toast and if you’re looking close
You’ll see me floating down the skyline
In a hospital where I can see a million miles away
Goodbye
Cause I’m so far from where I was uneven yesterday
Another suicide
Track Name: Through Stars and Satellites
It's never the same a different game and always when you're on
a feeling to belong to again
it's harder to see and for you to be on your lonely run
circle around the sun back to me
oh and all was said tonight
oh down through stars and satellites
oh you're catching the light from a distant moon
oh still staring the whitest open bloom
falls down and feels all around
trying and finding the feeling you thought had disappeared
is all you feel
Track Name: Beautiful Disguise
I’ve seen the world in all of its rare beautiful disguise
Will I be the one that’s out of sight or out of mind?
I feel my thoughts, emotions racing fast
You tell me that it’s never going to last
I know it always seems to disappear from here
Before I ever let it get too near
I’ve seen the sky come crashing over and cover everyone
Still somehow left you standing, staring at the sun
It’s picturesque they’ll jump your coattails and ride
And circle around the ones you divide
You speak to them in so many ways, they say
They’re hoping that you never go away
Now with head and feet back firmly on the ground
They’ve found because of you a better world around
Track Name: Nocturne #2
She the sea beneath the sheets
Swimming out to sleep
Dreams of black and off-white
Go silent as the snow
Reflected through the window
On a winter’s twilight
This is the last night of all time
To see that it ends on the same sign
Shy violet as the sky
The clouds that pass you by
A world of colors streaming
Stay the night begins to play
Despite no coming day
Somewhere your heart is dreaming
This is the last night of all time
To see that it ends on the same sign
Track Name: Perfect Medication
Every day the bring another medication under cover
Dreams from pills of every color separate us from each other
You turn it on
Now I start to feel it once again
Watch the sky around you start to bend
Only to see you fall away from me
And I see you the silhouette hides a dream
The feeling in the air that means so much could disappear before you breathe
I thought I’d heard all the stories, voices call out silent for me
Pictures spin on air before me, give attention then ignore me
You turn it on
Now I start to feel it once again
Watch the sky around you start to bend
Only to see you fall away from me
And I see you the silhouette hides a dream
The feeling in the air that means so much could disappear before you breathe
Track Name: Storms
So good to see you
And sorrow to see you
All the saddest things
And storms that you bring
Quiet in the way that you pass by
Track Name: Rain
Change is coming around for a chance to be alone in sight
Whole world is crushing down caught up in a web of our lies
Watch the rain falling down sitting at the window where we slept
Hear it all around town, you’re happy now with someone you met
And the days just slip into weeks as I drink myself into another mind
Where I don’t have to think about you or the feelings all the time
Feel the ground and it’s under my feet as I slip and fall into another dream
Where I said I was sorry for it all and see you happy again

It was only a dream
I found it in my sleep
Once that I tried to see and follow
Track Name: Adrift Against The Lines
drifting inside your mind
slow from dreams awoke to find
a tower wooden sail reminds me
ocean at high tide it’s a high time we’ve tried
ho hi wavesong, the shore behind me

wooden mast aimed toward the sun
crash a wave, another one
navigate, communicate to find me
this hand is worn a hundred times
a record tide we have
ho hi wavesong, the shore behind me

I can feel the undertow
and sea wind-tickled aqua foam
throw away the anchor that binds me
no wind is blowing, I’m slowing to rest
ho hi wavesong, the shore behind me
Track Name: Nocturne #1
Sweet sleep is falling down
Sweet dreams and starry sounds
The wide-eyed, silent sky is open now
Heavens sings the sweetest things around
All the stars up on the hill are slowly raining down upon your window sill
And all the things you’re dreaming of, are painted in the lights in the sky above
And you can see reflections in the moon
The way things ought to be, the night’s wide open bloom
Track Name: Perfect Reaction
Whether or not to play
Whether or not to say
Whether or not to feel
Whether or not it’s real
Whether or not to stay
Whether or not to keep away
Whether or not to kneel
Whether or not to heal
Whether or not to see
Whether or not to be
Whether or not to play away
It’s better not to say
It’s better not to speak
Try to stay awake
Try to stay a week
Only forgotten days
Only forgotten ways
Try to make the deal
Then try to make me feel
How would you like to see
How I’d like to be
How I’d like to stay away
It’s better not to say
It’s better not to speak
Try to stay awake
Try to stay a week
Only forgotten days
Only forgotten ways
Try to make the deal
Then try to make me feel
How would you like to see
How I’d like to be
How I’d like to stay away
Track Name: The Final Seconds
And so it ends the game you never win
Your head is spinning around instead and nothing seems to follow
Another lens and no defenses left
Lying in your bed, only feeling hollow
See it now the story is closing in
Push it back and then wait until tomorrow
Feel it now, the last few things to see
Holding onto me and I can’t seem to follow
I’m thinking of place it wasn’t like it is
So many ways to live, so many things to love
What are you thinking of?
Why it only comes too late, the final seconds shared
The last thoughts we bring, there’s nothing left to sing
There’s nothing left to say
Now as I’m floating past the door, a million things or more,
I’m feeling grateful for
