Track Name: Stand Still
Stand still: Feed another need, something I haven’t tried, what is a limit, something’s eve, peaks or fountains, barrier reefs, wheels of giant iron sheets that the river carved through wired streets, crowded seas of sweeping feet, footprints made vanishing. stand still, a world that lives on paper can rip itself apart, from neither space nor surface, tell us what’s not obvious, we’ll damn our plans and amulets, forget it and get lost, stand still, we’re climbing up that bending tree to catapult our hearts, stand still, I found myself a candle and lit it in the hall, stand still, I lit one in the canyon against the ocean wall, stand still, from neither space nor surface, tell us whats not obvious.
Track Name: N.D.E
NDE: Leaning, keep leaning, lean until my boots slip off the floor, I was trying to take them off, feeling, feel it, feel it when my temple meets the floor, I’m not conscious no more.
Track Name: Landmine
Landmine: Under ground, under pressure, keep away no sign will tell ya we can’t lose, buckled down no second look, what a way to get fucked up for now and later too, landmine, left for another one to find, defined, scattered and buried throughout time, paradise, step in it, like a meeting of stray bullets about to chose, landmine, left for another one to find, defined, scattered and buried throughout time.
Track Name: Cartoon River
Cartoon River: Some people are born lucky, some people aint, contesting the results, contests like somersaults, asking twice, receive a few degrees above sea level, appetite, leave along your mental home, wonder till it lasts, semper vice, asking nice, feed it to yourself, sailing down that cartoon river, where different levels of a desert show themselves, end of arm, jump down into the lake, your mirage my mistake, wonder on, get inside a pyramid, losing precious air, galaxies like companies, waiting to expand, sailing down that cartoon river, they said to build the robot, there’s work to be done, about time for it, another malfunction, just turn the key, it only works if you believe I’m the only friend you got, at least that’s what I told the robot, party crash and reboot, pillowcase parachute into dream fights, pick pockets, picket fence, smuggling reflexes, kiss goodnight.
Track Name: Helium Moon
Helium Moon: Helium moon, keeps on looking, here’s a handful of sand to blanket the sky, psychic lady got shit to tell me but she won’t let her eyes near my eyes, little earth worm, near death tunnel, meeting a root and shaking limbs dry, helium moon keeps on looking for it, walking in lanes, driving through kitchens, I got a friend who might need fixing, steer me steady, beach tree bevy, neither one of these are gonna give me head ache, hey green feet keep on rustling, burying toys and burning London, helium moon keeps on looking for it, helium moon keeping on, helium moon keeps on looking for it.
Track Name: Siren
Siren: She saw the future in a tinted window, they were the siren island singers, I was the fly she was the spider, siren island dirty fighters, she had the draw like a fortune’s hidden in the middle, she got me spun up and individual, watching her beauty drip in sink and mirror, thinking clearer, your mind is a fortress, to feed off your thought process, one toke and you’ll notice the siren approaches, these walls are breathing, the paint is dancing, my face ignore any expressions, I swear the light has eyes, your mind is a fortress, to feed off your thought process, one toke and you’ll notice the siren approaches, you got me stuck to your siren love, got me stuck.
Track Name: Tabula Rasa
Tabula Rasa: There is no message, nothing to learn, no idea implied or inferred, nothing to sell, nothing to find, nothing to yell or let go or hide, there is no message to decode, nothing to write down or to be told, nothing to hear, just to be clear there is no message here, easy to ignore, there is no message, nothing to learn, nothing to send off, nothing to burn, nothing to solve, if you recall there is no message at all, easy to ignore, nothing to hear, nothing to fear, there is no message here, easy to ignore.
Track Name: Back Float
Back Float: I just want to back float to the buoy, words that mean something, something good to someone else, a nerve is pressed, alarm goes off, time to go back but I lost my map, footprints circle and overlap, and I just want to back float, I‘m just gonna back float to the buoy.
Track Name: Care free
Care Free: They say the world’s gonna end in a couple of years, just keep going, just keep going, that we will all become one with the atmosphere, just keep going, just keep going living with the atmosphere, but I’m care free. Can’t get lost if you wander if you’re wondering, going up coming down going up again, living with the atmosphere, care free, I said I’ve been to the future and there was nobody there, no one to give an argument, living with the atmosphere, but I’m care free.
Track Name: Something Else
Something else: Something else, c’mon gimme something else, some for now, i'm dry for something else.
Track Name: Axis Mundi
Axis Mundi: Down to our last nervous cell, candles done, the room is very dark and still full of love, and when the sun decides to rise I’m gone too soon, dance around the room, pointless and out of style, if you wait you’ll be here a while, its not right, it aint right, its ultraviolet, going out of style, going out.
Track Name: Basement Undone
Basement Undone: What’s over that hill, what’s over the hill, home
