Track Name: Crops
I don't know how the crops will fare this year x2
The days are getting shorter now
The night is getting brighter
The moon, it casts a lonesome glow
I'll have to be a fighter
I don't know how the crops will fare this year

I knew my decision was made
When I talked to you with both feet on my grave
I knew I was shit out of luck
When the midnight hour had finally struck

Show me how
To make the wind blow south
Show me where
The Rivers gonna flow
Tell me when
Time comes to an end

I don't know how the crops will fare this year x2
The grass is getting taller now
The beasts are getting louder
My one and only fatal fear
Is not having a lighter
While my jay is still unlit
And I am sitting idle
I don't know how the crops will fare this year


Show me how
To make the wind blow south
Show me where
The Rivers gonna flow
Tell me when
Time comes to an end
Show me how
To make the wind blow south

I don't know how the crops will fare this year
Track Name: Bora
I won't go back
I won't consider, no time won't deliver
the tide won't roll back
the moon has been torn from the sky

Into the hollow, secrets and all
Chained to the feeling, I'm seeking your call
Your candle burns bright, all through the night, and I won't sleep tight
x2

I won't go back
I won't consider, no time won't deliver
the tide won't roll back
the moon has been torn from the sky


Into the hollow, secrets and all
Chained to the feeling, I'm seeking your call
Your candle burns bright, all through the night, and I won't sleep tight
x2
Track Name: Rainbow Fish
Sleep is simulated death
Dreamt of my last breath
Eternity identifies you
Time particles convert to waves
My skeletons are words buried in ink
Deeper and deeper I sink

Silhouette Shatters
Scattering Shadows
Ocean waves crash into trees
And rainbow fish hover over me

Rosy Mannequin
They forgot who you are
It's sweet to kiss that which will kill you
Sleeping Beauty's heart doesn't beat
We're the dreams of a manic god

Silhouette Shatters
Scattering Shadows
Ocean waves crash into trees
And rainbow fish hover over me

Close your eyes
Sleep tight tonight
Don't feel haunted, fall into a dream
Track Name: Antique Clock
A wave of sensations
Sweeps across the streets
The early morning market
And electric city heat
I forgot my lines the other day
The masked faces called me insane

I thought I saw an android pray
But wasn't it programmed to be that way
I thought I saw an android pray
A golem made of old wet clay

Unnerving stillness of the heart
The beats are too far apart
Can you hear the antique clock
x2

The plastic man will take your hand
And put it on display
Hold on to your humanity
Real skin is rare these days
Traders of flesh and bone
Lapping up blood around the throne

I thought I saw an android pray
But wasn't it programmed to be that way
I thought I saw an android pray
A golem made of old wet clay

Unnerving stillness of the heart
The beats are too far apart
Can you hear the antique clock

Unnerving stillness of the heart
The beats are too far apart

Can you hear the antique clock
It's always ticking when I talk
x2

I walk home safe every night
Nobody gives me any fright
But is this really my bed
Are these my own thoughts
In my own head

Unnerving stillness of the heart
The beats are too far apart

Can you hear the antique clock
It's always ticking when I talk
x2
Track Name: Xanax and VHS (Hentai Song)
I can hear you across the ocean floor
I can hear you across the ocean floor

I don't even know your name
It's just a feeling
I don't even know your name
It's just a feeling

Do you like Hentai?
Do you like Hentai?
Do you like Hentai?
Do you like Hentai?

I don't want to go, no I don't want to stay
I don't want to go, no I don't want to stay
I don't want to go, no I don't want to stay
Need a place to call your own

Track Name: Vintage Sneakers
Vintage sneakers rotting on the lawn
Time moves so slow you can hear the flowers yawn
Torn screen door remains, like a dead spider's web
Like a dead spider's web
The notes of an ice-cream truck melody fall like forgotten valentines

She realizes
She's alive
Reminded
Reminded of Ghostly
Ghostly
Ghostly chimes

Battery acid bubbling in the ravine
Charging my phone in the trunk of a tree
The vines crawled through the factory
Hanging my arm out the window of a car with no wheels
Yeah I'm stuck on the hill
The buzz of flies and radiation crackles in the sky

She realizes
She's alive
Reminded
Reminded of Ghostly
Ghostly
Ghostly chimes

Don't go outside he says, there's no more god, flag, or country
We're all washed up, see the fire, smell the smoke
Share the punchline before the joke
The tire swing drips into another dimension
If you get close enough you feel the vibration
The tire swing drips into another dimension
If you get close enough you feel the vibration

Vintage sneakers rotting on the lawn
Time moves so slow you can hear the flowers yawn
Torn screen door remains, like a dead spider's web
Like a dead spider's web
The notes of an ice-cream truck melody fall like forgotten valentines

Don't go outside he says, there's no more god, flag, or country
We're all washed up, see the fire smell the smoke
Share the punchline before the joke
No god, flag or country
No god, flag or country

The tire swing drips into another dimension
If you get close enough you feel the vibration
The tire swing drips into another dimension
If you get close enough you feel the vibration
Track Name: My Machine
Have you ever looked up at the sky
And seen a UFO at the corner of your eye
You say we're really all alone

It was cloaked from the longing gaze of our satellite
They posed no threat, we'd be alright
The nova kept expanding, there was never a fight
Like a stake through the heart on a Saturday night

I know she said someday we'd all be safe
We can get used to this passive invasion
She says it feels like someone's watching us
We can sit here for a long, long time my friend
Yeah you know what it means

It looked like metallic Tetris blocks
Crashing to the earth and they all interlocked
Are these monoliths alive, do they want us all to die?

It was cloaked from the longing gaze of our satellite
They posed no threat, we'd be alright
The nova kept expanding, there was never a fight
Like a stake through the heart on a Saturday night

I know she said someday we'd all be safe
We can get used to this passive invasion
She says it feels like someone's watching us
We can sit here for a long, long time my friend
Yeah you know what it means

And now everywhere that you go
You can't find any of the places that you know
Our future's more obscured than you'll ever know

And now I know we must get off this rock
This world is done, it's been claimed by someone
x2

We can sit here for a long, long time my friend
Yeah you know what it means
When it cracks it bleeds
When it croaks it screams
They will pretend it is the end
The end

And now I know we must get off this rock
This world is done, it's been claimed by someone
x2

We can sit here for a long, long time my friend
Yeah you know what it means
When it cracks it bleeds
When it croaks it screams
They will pretend it is the end
The end

Have you seen my machine
It's somewhere out there
x2
Track Name: Radio Waves
A million miles away
A million miles high
Feel the radio waves
A million miles of sky
In the empty darkness
I can catch your eye
Light and heat and radio waves
Are all you left behind

A million voices inside of my head
A million demons voicing regret
Relativistic radio waves
Einstein was never wrong
As I age and fade away
You will stay forever young

I should've listened
I never tried
I should've gone with you into the sky
x2

Looking for your eyes
In the radio waves
Try to hear your voice
A million miles away
Try to hear your voice
Track Name: Cosmonaut
In the last golden hour of nostalgic sunlight
The astronauts were due for their cryogenic flight
Amber leaves falling gently at their feet
Summer's edges burnt crisp in nuclear heat

Siren's song in the space beyond
Transmission from a forgotten place
Death rattle waking me up
Consciousness is sent through the stars

Don't you ever change
Til I come back again
A thousand light years away from my world
Guess I'll hold my breath

As I look back I see the shadows of the sun
A nearby planet's approaching aphelion
Like Star Trek said, going where no man's gone before
It'll soon be a part of the cosmic folklore

Siren's song in the space beyond
Transmission from a forgotten place
Death rattle waking me up
Consciousness is sent through the stars

Don't you ever change
Til I come back again
A thousand light years away from my world
Guess I'll hold my breath
Track Name: Out of the Blue
I've been told
Everything starts with a pile of gold
x2

Automatons from the future
Tried to read me the news
I politely declined and we drank some wine
Now I don't have a clue

I met you at the wrong place at the wrong time
Now I'm losing my mind
x2

We can only have tomorrow

I've been told
Everything starts with a pile of gold
x2

Radioactive samurai
Poked me right in the eye
With their jetpack boots and titanium katanas
Didn't dare ask why

I met you at the wrong place at the wrong time
Now I'm losing my mind
x2

I met you at the wrong time

I've got something new to lose
She came right out the blue
x2

I've been told
Everything starts with a pile of gold
x2

Stone-sculpted giants covered in moss
Maybe once they roamed but now it's lost

I met you at the wrong place at the wrong time
Now I'm losing my mind
x2

I met you at the wrong time

I've got something new to lose
She came right out the blue
x2
Track Name: Greystar
The light of the grey star
Chills your bones
You're getting tired
And you need to go
Harrowed faces
Narrow places
Laser-beam lipstick hit me in a smoky stairwell

Broken glass by the pink door frame
Cigarette butts that the pigeons claim
Help me, help me if you can
You are my oldest friend

Fell to the floor, heard the jangle of keys
And the distant rustle of leaves
Maze of tangled branches is the perfect escape
They say you can't go back but it's never too late
(It's the time of the year that I miss you)
Help me, help me if you can
You are my oldest friend
Track Name: Late Night Hanging
It's just a late night hanging
From your porch down to the yard
It's just a late night hanging
No need to be so loose

Late night hanging
It's all you need to see
Drive-thru killing
Lit up on the marquee

Everywhere that you go
The scenic routes always best taken slow
Every time that you're close
Feel the blind rush from your head to your toes

It's just a late night hanging
Put on your Sunday shoes
It's just a late night hanging
Sing all your happy blues
Track Name: Right One
Rip these shreds
Don't be late
We won't start it up
Won't tear away
We run this town
Drunk at the arcade
We won't start it up
Won't tear away

Through the blinding light of Jesus
Burn this shit right down to the ground
At the altar of Thanos
It's the time of the year

We run this town
Drunk at the arcade
We won't start it up
Won't tear away
Fossil fuel
What a fool
We won't start it up
Won't tear away

Through the blinding light of Jesus
Burn this shit right down to the ground
Lovely lady
What's your story
It's the time of the year
She's the right one
Yeah the right one
Fuck yeah she's the right one

Hanging back
With the boys

We won't start it up
Won't tear away
x2
Track Name: Before you Go
Take this familiar thing
And throw it out to sea
Starlight fades away
We sleep right through the day

Before you go I want you to know
I need you
x2

Take this familiar thing
And throw it out to sea
Starlight fades away
We sleep right through the day

Before you go I want you to know
I need you
x2

Holy Ghost
Rolls a jay
Holy Ghost
Rolls away

Before you go I want you to know
I need you
x2

You can cause a scene
In someone's dream
Sitting by the fire
Everyone is here
Dropping Acid
On the mountain
