Track Name: New Atlantis
from cityscapes to chips of paint
eyes between the window panes
looking down upon the braids
of people as they all parade
"what is it you need to make you happy?"

you got heart your body and your mind
make some ground with the land below your feet
you are more than what you're told to be
so claim the city that's been trodden and breathe life into the ocean where it sleeps

as the king lives out his fate
the people of his hall debate
"should we dance or should we cry?"
"his crown is gold, but at what price?"

you got heart your body and your mind
make some ground with the land below your feet
you are more than what you're told to be
so claim the city that's been trodden and breathe life into the ocean where it sleeps

breathe life into the ocean where we sleep

you got heart your body and your mind
make some ground with the land below your feet
you are more than what you're told to be
so claim the city that's been trodden and breathe life into the ocean where it sleeps
Track Name: Jumping Islands (House of Giants)
this place is a stormy ocean
limbs are sprawled across the shore
everyone is jumping islands
in hopes of finding themselves

so long forgotten
can I move myself, escape the body?
will this be my digression
or will I see the light in our frames singing?

this hourglass is waiting to be turned around
it's far to heavy, too far in the ground
do I have the potential
to trick my mind to turn this on it's head again?

I wonder what we'd look like to a house of giants
I wonder what they'd have to say
would they see the potential of you and me?
or are we just ants pulling twenty times the body weight?

so long forgotten
can I move myself, escape the body?
will this be my digression
or will I see the light in our frames singing?
Track Name: The Mending Wall
the earth is shaking
my back is breaking
is this lost or is it waiting to be found?

the earth is shaking
my back is breaking
I can see the gaps between my bones
it sure seems like I'm running out of ground
but maybe all I have to do is turn around

so let me know
should I be waiting
or should I move on in search for more

so let me know
should I be waiting
or will this be the mending wall

we've seen
all our naked truths
but you left me naked and hanging from a noose
you're a dirty projector
spitting mixing images
I can see your silhouette sifting through the light

I swear I see an open door
but you don;t sit as closely as before
I'd like to show you I've turned this all around
just let me take you through my newly painted town

so let me know
should I be waiting
or should I move on in search for more

so let me know
should I be waiting
or will this be the mending wall

will we find it
or is it here
our greatest love yet our greatest fear
so many faces that we will greet
but there's faces and then there's yours

hopeful the rain will fall
to clear this ambiguity
will this be the mending wall
Track Name: Similar Places
we've been in similar places
with that I ask
how is she?
you don't need to tell me, I know
she's the best thing that's ever happened and you'll never let her go

those are quite familiar traces
that you've etched
those are my lines those are my lines
you don't need to say another word
because she's the best thing that's ever happened
so go ahead and kiss her slow
for me

we've been in similar places
with that I ask
how is she?
does she make you feel strong?
does she make you feel horny?

do you like that?
does it feel ripe?

does she like it?
does it feel right?
you don't need to tell me
I know

we've been in similar places
with that I ask
how is she?
is she happy?
Track Name: New York City

Track Name: Christmas Vacation (Bread and Circus)
quick gotta get those kids something
to worry about before they start thinking too much
somebody get them prescription
to relieve them from feeling anything at all

don't worry you won't feel a thing
take a taste and everything will go away

gotta gotta get them believing
in everything in every single word we say
shine our shoes dry clean our blazers
so we can take christmas vacation

don't worry you won't feel a thing
take a taste and everything will go away

just give them a bread and circus
we'll need them to fill our pockets


bread and circus
Track Name: Blue
whenever I feel blue, I fly out passed the moon
I turn around and see that everything is perfect

floating out in space
I circumnavigate
all the colors that I see
below me

a mix of black and grey
intercept the greens of may
making birth to the soils where the bodies pray

no it's not about me

no matter where the story goes
it's bound to unfold
the pages may be burning
but through that the kids are learning

as the children bloom
down the deep and narrow flumes
we all celebrate
their birthdays
we celebrate their birthdays
and as their petals spread
they dance around the bend
through the breaking sky
the sun will cry
the sun will cry it's tears on us

no matter where the story goes
it's bound to unfold
the pages may be burning
but through that the kids are learning

no matter where the story goes
(oh, mother said, don't be sad)
it's bound to unfold
the pages may be burning
(the world is still turning)
but through that the kids are learning
(to us you're always welcome home)

whenever I feel blue, I fly out passed the moon
I turn around and see that everything is perfect
