Track Name: Messenger of All's Right
Messenger of All’s Right

The avalanche took me by surprise
This time it was visible
Taller than the trees
Reaching the sky it nearly buried me
But I’ve been delivered by a dead man’s voice
Like a messenger of all’s right

I’ve seen you live through the darkest of days
Alive but a little less and hanging off your cigarette
And hiding under pills
Your brilliance will decay
Unless delivered by a dead man’s voice
Like a messenger of all’s right

When the sun doesn’t shine for days
When there’s a slave behind my eyes
When the usual isn’t enough
And the voices rage until I hate again
There is one who would pull me out…of the rumble
The rumble would decay when the needle hit the groove and built the silence
The silence will decay when the needle left the groove to build the rumble
The avalanche took me by surprise
The next time I may not be as fortunate
It’s so hard to clear my head
My days of life go racing by and I won’t even use them
Unless delivered by a dead man’s voice
Like a messenger of all’s right

I’ve been delivered by a messenger

Refrain~

There is one who would pull me out…
Track Name: Warjazz
WarJazz

I’m getting bigger
Than the armies that are outside
I’ve got plans that suffocate
And I don’t really care

I feel like WarJazz
With a nod to the none
‘Cause everyone pulls and spins together
Into the burn, together all alone

I need a space surrounded by dozens of windows
And clear far-off warnings
So I can go wide and long
Together all alone

I can’t recognize the randomness
The blurry syncopated fits
Is their purpose in chaotic hits that move in and out of time?

There’s WarJazz in the smoky halls
It calls for me to go
To an alley joint of cocktail haze
In random muffled tones

Refrain~

Gone away
Once it’s been had it’s never quite the same
Struggle to remember, it’s never quite the same
Once it’s been had, it’s never…

I pull the trigger
‘Cause I’m jumping in and out of my skin
Insides feel like trouble
Everything’s starting to spin

I’ve got days and days where I hesitate
I’ll never get them back
I used to move ahead of the sun
But now my sun burns back

Refrain~
Track Name: Empyrean Views
Empyrean Views

They found the steppe and sang its song
Some settled in or just moved along
In isles between the markers they go

On the left rose a sign that the end was near
It said, “Repent or burn and thank God it’s HERE!
2001 resurrected dead on planet Jupiter!
Everyone’s purchased a place to go
With the clearest view and the bargain low
The buildings end here where the walls crumble down
They usher in the isles of stones
Between the bones and places they’ve travelled

The train ignites across the view
The faces blur and all of you
Rocket by rocket by with places to go

Aeronautic distant diamonds burst
Like morning stellar universe
Leaving little scars in the great blue sky

Refrain~

Find your way; one step further, one step further

Walking into the sun
Where the day had begun they moved past the routine and fear
Along a coast of never knowing

Well, have they fallen off the edge of the world?
Or did the sea swell up to swat every one of them away?
There’s a longing in those hearts that calls

It calls for a destination
We call to the destination
It calls for a destination
Engage for the destination

The sky is a changing window
A firmament that cuts off empyrean views
Of light and wheels of fire

The Sun and Moon and Stars are markers
Finding our way through impermanence
And all they have is one step further
Finding a way, our way

Refrain~

Find your way; one step further, one step further

Everyone’s purchased a place to go
With the clearest view and the bargain low
The buildings end here where the walls crumble down
They usher in the isles of stones
Between bones and places they’ve travelled
The places they’ve gone, that we’ve been, and we’ll go
Track Name: Different Days
Different Days

Well, I’m in hiding, but not too far
Where time gets bent into the bar
The same old drink, lit by waves, on different days

The familiar chords bounce off the walls
In C’s and D’s and E’s
Well I’ve been here before to spend my different ways

On different days I’m in hiding

The volume jumbles and fights for more
Like swirls of buzzing bees
I can’t hear the stories in the cracks of the day, no

Little bursts of language dissipate
The stories try to hang on
There’s nothing here that hasn’t been said,
I’m running dry

It’s the moves you never make inside
It’s the moves you never make in time
See the bottom rising
See the bottom rising

I’m buried in a cycle that I notice in my brain
The repeating seems unstoppable
Even when I change
I forget everything I remember
In denial I am denied
My head feels like swarming and checking off boxes for days and days and days
On different days I’m in hiding

Refrain~

You move into the storm, it pulls you where you’re going

I’m looking up through the layers
There’s a tumbling sky that’s got to land
I’m covered in its pooling measures
No matter where I run, no matter were I stand

Can’t let go
When they run away I stay awake
I stay awake on different days
When they run away I stay awake
I stay awake through different days

The different days are so out from the rest
I can’t recognize the time
Don’t pull your hat down or go around
‘Cause it’s everything in everything and then some

You move into the storm, it pulls you where you’re going

Now I’m back in the ballroom dancing the buck-and-wing
I’ve been tapping solo for so long
My limbs are flying but I’m not rising to any degree
‘Cause I’m just spinning, wasted movement and energy

On different days I’m in hiding

Refrain~
Track Name: Carried Home
Carried Home

Her eyes are full of storm
It’s a constant distraction she’s working on
She’s a flower in need of rain
Shame though the water will choke her
She’s a flower of rain, that’s all

His eyes are wide in fear
His room’s alive with angels that wrestle with what brought him here
He’s a river with nowhere to flow alone
Soon the current will take him

Soon the water will rise
And soon it carries them home

Always circles around itself
Blooming, returning, to itself
Back and forth it never ends
When anything is everything again
We’re carried home
We’re carried to the sea
We’re carried home

Do I need a reason to crash into the sea
Do I really need to let the tide carry me into the sun
Down into space is a beautiful dream
Weightless set apart drifting past gravity
And the soon the water will rise
We’re carried home
And soon it carries them home

Refrain~

We’re carried to the sea
We’re carried home in stormy eyes with strangers at our sides by the tide
Track Name: Once I Get Mine
Once I Get Mine

Pushing, pushing ‘til I blur the line
Doesn’t matter what you get once I’ve got mine
Taking, taking ‘til I’ve had my fill
If you don’t grab what’s left my friend
You know I will
It doesn’t matter what you get
It doesn’t matter what you get
I’ve been taking before you take away
It doesn’t matter what you get
Once I’ve got mine

I’m moving step by step
You feel me moving past
When I take my place
You know I won’t be last
Hey, piece by piece
I’m building mine
Glory be for me
Is your decline
Glory be for me

Pushing everybody and taking everything
I’m pushing everybody and taking everything
No regrets is how I sleep at night

Refrain~

I can hear your body
I can read your face as well
You can shine your suit
But you can’t hide the sell

Your biggest day
It isn’t mine
So sorry

Words, washing over me
Exploding in my head
Washing over me
It isn’t what you get
Words, words
Tangled in my head
Give, give it isn’t you!

Once I get mine
Once I get mine
You can have it all, and take it all, ????
Once I get mine

Refrain~
Track Name: Sound of Bees
Sound of Bees

Their words take on the sound of bees
Drawing my attention
But I don’t want them
They will sting

When I was younger
I’d make and lose friends
It was so much easier

But now that I’m older
The loss of my loved ones
Has left me so unhappy
And left me with these lonely little lines

They are the reason I’m running
They are the voices that I’ve heard
I’ve heard, I’ve heard
And they all come home with me

Lonely little lines…

The people that stare at me
Think that I’m dirty and not good enough to breathe
But they don’t even know me
And all they can show me
Is they’re not smart enough to see, to see me

Refrain~

In my lonely little lines
Such lonely little lines
The bees have their wishes like steely little kisses
And all I do is listen to be loved
I’ve opened up my wrist
Deep enough for the voice to seep out of my life
So I’m free, I’m free
Free to live, free to live
Opened up my heart
Just enough for some light
To shine back in my life
So I’m free, I’m free
Free to love, free to love

Not to be able
To make people happy
Well it, it clouds my everything
The bees have their wishes with their steely little kisses
They take my pain away
The bees have their wishes with their butterfly kisses
They take my pain away

Everything’s gone
Everything’s wrong
I’ll hide away
All I can hear is what’s wrong

They are the reason I’m running
They are the voices that I’ve heard
And they all come home with me

Their voice takes on
Their voice takes on
Their voice takes on
Their voice takes on the sound of bees
All I want is all gone
All I hear is so wrong
All I want is all gone
All I hear is bees
Track Name: All This Time We're Given
All This Time We’re Given

Fought in wars, driven dynamite
Had a rough time with the pain last night
My mind is a sun setting sun
Cruel memory don’t let me down
What’s it like outside?

Everything I own is on my back
All I have is in a line on the sill
In a line all the time
I don’t know if I know
I know I don’t remember

Orange southern church
Yellow is the lamb in orbit ‘round my head
Time battle time, cruel gravity don’t let me fall
What’s it like outside?

What am I supposed to do?
Lost in chemicals
Never thought I’d see this day
Now what’s to become of me?

I know this face these hands this brow these lips
They used to kiss
I really can’t decide if they’re mine
Please remind me

I speak in trails my history fails
And all I ever was is gone
Please remind me

Refrain~

All this time we’re given
With nothing left to show
All this space to live in
With nowhere else to go

No one wants to see me
There’s nothing left to go home to
Nothing at all to keep me
And they say the end is beautiful
How did my life come to this?

Thought the end would never find me
So hold my hand as I slip away
If the end of pain is pain
Then we should all go quietly
How did my life come to this?

What am I supposed to do?
Lost in chemicals
Never thought I’d see this day
Now what’s to come of me?
And my life?

Refrain~

I’ve got nowhere to go

Although we’re given
Back to the oak and vein
The light we lived in
Will shine on us again
Won’t you shine on us again
Shine on us
Shine on us
Won’t you shine on us again?
Track Name: Vanishing Sun
Vanishing Sun

I’m sifting through the wreckage
Of these miserable days
Filled my lungs with stone
My heart’s already gone
I want to wake up
I need to find myself dead
What difference did I make?
So help me disappear

Ghost you all the way
Language is the hammer we’re beneath

What an empty life
Fucking kill me now
What a lonely life
Fucking kill me now

Cue an epic horizon
Start with a vanishing sun
Swallowed, hornets
Now anger is the root of his spree
Set the room ablaze
Lighted like the 4th of July
Spit out, daggers now

Ghost you all the way
Language is the hammer we’re beneath

Refrain~

Stare into the eyes of hate and smile at their beauty
Taken by confusion they no longer have a home

All he ever wanted was to disappear
All he ever wanted was to take his life back
All he ever wanted was to disappear
All he ever wanted was to take his life back…
