Track Name: St. Albans
tainted strangers
sleeping on the train
she know how to
take away the pain

don’t you know its true
don’t you have a clue
I’m in love with you

I know you think it’s cruel
to see me like you do

we said maybe we’re
wasting all our time
I hope you don’t
go catch another line

don’t you know its true
don’t you have a clue
I’m in love with you

I know you think it’s cruel
to see me like you do

riding on a daydream
Track Name: Altimeter
it’s getting harder to tell
here in the stratosphere
I want only to know
jetfan oblivion

on the brink of space
I fell in love with the speed of sound,
that reckoning boom
when i looked down
I locked eyes with a sad sad girl
the maiden blue

in dream, gravity unraveled at the seams

infinitesimal
a vapor in the sun
I’m drifting farther away
here in this fuselage

just when the nose dips down
I’m searching for that trusty gauge
that tells me how high
or how low
i’m reaching for my parachute
cause I still can’t fly
I’m upside down
I don’t trust the ground beneath my feet
its only sky
I can’t rely
altimeter’s ticking time

it’s getting harder to tell
here in the stratosphere
I want only to know
jetfan oblivion

on the edge
silent earth comes swiftly into view
Track Name: City Of Kings
breathing the whole world in

scrounging for an answer
in the city of kings
feeling sentimental
for the suitcase days, you know
it’s harder than you realize
living like a frog in a jar

breathing the whole world in

when the morning comes
pray for the sun
as the night sets in
weep for the stars

awaiting the break of day
breathing the whole world in

searching for a reason
to escape, alone
rushing past the ruins
in the thickening grey
eking respiration
on the tree lined malecón

awaiting the break of day

when the morning comes
pray for the sun
as the night sets in
weep for the stars

just remember
winter never lasts
wherever you are
the sky is basically the same

breathing the whole world in
Track Name: Fondo
underneath the shifting sea
there’s a boy who dreams of thee
nail and hook and ancient spear
faceless shadows linger near

wherefore, therefore

in between the silt and stone
lies a lover scarcely grown
Track Name: Mirror
looking in the mirror
looking in the past
oh, life’s just begun

think of yourself
with a white picket fence
oh, throw it all away

looking in the mirror
looking in the past
oh, life’s just begun

lost in your eyes
constellations collide
there is nothing to fear
Track Name: Fader
the king of consternation
hasn’t left his couch in days, oh no
he feeds on glowing pixels
from the television screen, how serene
all his memories
are stored on drives and dvd’s, at his feet

hikikomori
blame inertia

he keeps his mind awake
as the plastic world degrades, so slow
sifting through the rubble
he finds a sullied photograph, a familiar face
in another time, he’d take a little walk outside

hikikomori
Track Name: Ginkgo
on a distant street
hands full of leaves
you were the one who
traced the shapes

we set out on our own
and all the time the seeds were sown
behold the trees as they grow wild
maybe when you’re alone you

smile, and think of ginkgo
staying hopeful as the years go by

in a fragrant field
where I drew you near
pulled living fossils
from your hair

we set out on our own
and all the time the seeds were sown
behold the trees as they grow wild
maybe when you’re alone you

smile, and think of ginkgo
getting closer as the years go by
Track Name: 1918
in rapture
don’t remember how I got here
to the white satin walls
and the old highway noise
and the revelry of dolls
in rapture
