Track Name: Prometheus
EVERYDAY IS JUST THE SAME OR SO IT SEEMS
WHEN THE DESERT TAKES THE SEA WILL YOU REMEMBER ME
I DON’T REALLY KNOW WHAT I WAS BEFORE OR WHAT I AM NOW
BEHIND THIS CURTAIN I CAN BE CERTAIN IS THE END OF BLISS

EVERY WAY IS JUST THE SAME OR SO IT SEEMS
WHEN GALAXIES START TO RECEDE WILL YOU REMEMBER ME
A GUILTY CONSCIENCE IS WHAT BROUGHT US OUT FROM THE NETHER
WHETHER IT IS TRUE STILL EVER PRESENT IS DEATH WITH A KISS

FOR WHAT WORDS ARE LEFT TO BE SAID
SUCH SAUDADE REMAINS TO REPEAT

EVERYDAY IS JUST THE SAME OR COULD IT BE
WHEN THE SUN FADES AWAY IT’S JUST MAKE BELIEVE
ALL I REALLY KNOW IS WHAT I HAVE DONE TO DESERVE THIS LOVE
UNYIELDING AND FIERCE WARMER EVERY PIERCE A FATE FIT FOR A GOD
Track Name: Transcendental Winnebago
FEELS LIKE I'M CLOSE TO SOME ABSOLUTE
TRUTH'S AN OLD SAYER OF MANY SOOTHS
WILLED INTO THIS BEING BY SOME FOOL
IT'S ALL THE SAME EITHER WAY

THOUGHTS CRISSCROSS AND FADE AWAY
NOTHING CAN STAY JUST DELAY
ONLY ECHOES AND SHADOWS REPLICATE
MY PAST SELF IS GONE TO LIVE IN OBLIVION

OBLIVION

THE EMPIRE IS GONE PAY NO MIND
THE VILLAGE OF THOUGHT IS FOR ALL
TO TRADE SUCH THINGS IS MY WAY
I AM THE GREAT ASSIMILATOR

SEE ME CREATE SUCH WONDER
WITHIN THIS I WILL EXIST FOREVER
IN PROTEST TO ALL OTHERS DESPERATE
MY PAST SELF IS GONE TO LIVE IN OBLIVION

LOST IN THE LAND OF ETERNAL SAND
TO KEEP REPEATING TIL DEATH THEN AGAIN
Track Name: One of a Kind
YOU SAT THERE BITING AN APPLE MOUTHING THE WORDS FROM A DELTA BLUES ALBUM
I COULD SEE THE SUN WAS IN YOUR EYES AS YOU PRETENDED NOT TO MIND
THE WAY YOUR FACE LOOKED AT ME COULD ONLY MEAN ONE THING

SHE WAS THE ONLY ONE TO FIND ME OUT
HER BLOOD STILL LINGERS ON MY TONGUE

WRAPPED UP IN A PIECE OF CLOTH HER BODY SHINING LIKE A GREEK GOD
AS SHE REVEALED HERSELF TO BE ANOTHER WOMAN I WOULD MISLEAD
I NEVER HAD A WAY WITH WORDS BUT IF ONLY IT WASN'T HER

TIME MOVES SO SLOW WHEN OUR LIPS ARE CLOSE
HOW I WISH I NEVER KNEW WHAT IT WAS TO BE LOVED BY YOU
Track Name: Pools
MAYBE JUST MAYBE THE WORDS YOU’RE SAYING AIN’T REALLY WHAT YOU MEAN
FULL OF THIS BEAUTY MYSTERY ALLOWS US JUST A REFLECTION

MY MIND
IS A TEMPLE WITH NO DOORS OR WINDOWS

ALL LIGHT ALL THAT’S BRIGHT SHINES WITHIN AND THROUGH ME AND YOU
THIS FEAR FROM INSIDE IS ALWAYS ALIVE FED BY SUCH SWEET LIES

MY MIND
IS A TEMPLE WITH NO DOORS OR WINDOWS

I’M FLOATING IN A POOL OF DOUBT
I’M FLOATING IN A POOL OF DOUBT

MAYBE (just) MAYBE (just) MAYBE
Track Name: Too Much Sun
TOO MUCH SUN LEAVES YOU BLIND
TOO MUCH RAIN AND YOU CAN'T GET DRY
TOO MUCH TIME ON YOUR OWN
CAN MAKE YOU OBSESS OVER THINGS YOU'VE DONE
TRAPPED LIKE A FEVER EVER FURTHER FROM THE FUTURE

SO WHEN YOU ARE FEELING LOW
AND THE SOUND OF A PIANO
DOESN'T DO IT ANYMORE
COME FIND ME BY THE SHORE
WAITING PATIENTLY FOR INSPIRATION TO POSSESS ME

WHEN THE AIR IS STALE
WHEN I LOSE THE THRILL
WHEN A CROW CRIES OUT
WHEN I'M JUST ABOUT
I WILL THINK ON YOU
JUST LIKE I USED TO

TOO MUCH FUN WILL LEAVE YOU FAST
TOO MUCH GRIEF AND YOU'LL WANT IT BACK
TOO MUCH SPACE FOR YOURSELF
CAN TAKE YOU TO THE OPAQUE GULF
FORGOTTEN ON DAYS OF EXTREMELY BAD WEATHER
Track Name: Slow Down
THIS CALIFORNIA DAYDREAM AIN'T WHAT IT USED TO BE
I HAD GOOD INTENTIONS BUT IT SLIPPED OUT FROM UNDER ME
I LOST MYSELF FOR A SPELL JUST TO GET AHEAD
BUT IN THE END WHAT DOES IT MATTER IF WE ALL END UP DEAD

SLOW DOWN SLOW DOWN EASY

OH HOW I MISS THE DAZE AND HOW I USED TO FEEL
BUT NOW ALL I THINK ABOUT IS THIS NEVER ENDING REPEAL
IN THE LAST DAYS OF LIGHT I WILL UNRAVEL THIS MYSTERY
BEFORE I REACH THAT ETERNAL SHADE I ONLY HAVE ONE THING TO SAY

SLOW DOWN SLOW DOWN EASY

BETTER OFF KNOWING NOTHING KNOWING NOTHING AT ALL
Track Name: Intended Coincidence
THIS INTENDED COINCIDENCE
MAKES FATE LOOK LIKE A GOD DAMN JOKE

LIKE A HARLEQUIN SHIFTS THROUGH TIME
ALDINE CRAFT BECOMES AN ACT
A PLETHORA OF HIDDEN SHAPES AND MATH
WISDOM BEING FAR FROM MANIFEST
Track Name: Waste
SINCE YOU’RE HERE WITH ME RIGHT NOW
LIFE DOESN'T SEEM SO DOWN
IT’S WHEN I’M STUCK ON THE CUSP
HOLDING ON LIKE ATLAS

WOULD YOU WASTE AWAY
WOULD YOU WASTE AWAY (WITH ME)

HOW LONG ARE YOU GONNA . . WAIT
HOW LONG ARE YOU GONNA . . WAIT

WAVES OF FEAR HAVE LEFT ME HERE
A TOAST TO ALL THOSE HAUNTED YEARS
AT LONG LAST HIGH ON THE CREST
FOR JUST A SINGLE MOMENT

WOULD YOU WASTE AWAY
WOULD YOU WASTE AWAY-WITH ME

HOW LONG ARE YOU GONNA . . WAIT
HOW LONG ARE YOU GONNA . . WAIT
