Track Name: Lost in the Desert
ITS THE HARD WAY BUT ITS THE ONLY ONE WE KNOW
PUTTING UP WITH IT IS WHAT MAKES YOU YOU
YOU DONT GET SECOND CHANCES THIS FAR OUT
SURE THE SUN SHINES SOMETIMES BUT WHAT CAN YOU DO IN THE DARK

OVER THERE WITH YOUR HEAD DOWN STARING AT YOUR SOUL
YOU EVER THINK ITS ABOUT TIME TO LET IT GO

THIS INCESSANT CHARADE AINT NO FUN NO FUN AT ALL
WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU WERE TRULY ALONE
WISHFUL THINKING DOESN'T YOU FIND YOURSELF
YOU NEVER WERE TAUGHT HOW TO SWIM JUST TO FLOAT TO THE SHORE

OVER THERE WITH YOUR HEAD DOWN STARING AT YOUR SOUL
YOU EVER THINK ITS ABOUT TIME TO LET IT GO

I LAY AWAKE AT NIGHT
WAITING FOR MY OWN CONSCIENCE MIND
TO REVEAL THE VEIL THAT HIDES
THOSE SECRET SHAPES AND SOUNDS THAT HAUNT ME
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
Track Name: Transcendental Winnebago
FEELS LIKE IM 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 CRISS CROSS AND FADE AWAY
NOTHING REMAINS JUST DELAYS
ONLY ECHOS AND SHADOWS REPLICATE
MY PAST SELF IS GONE TO LIVE IN OBLIVION

THE EMPIRE'S GONE PAY NO MIND
THE VILLAGE OF THOUGHT IS FOR ALL
IN SUCH THINGS IS MY WAY TO LEAVE IT ALL

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

OBLIVION
OBLIVION
OBLIVION
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

EVERYWAY 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 … LEFT FOR DEAD


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
