Track Name: Cortex
When the days are open wide
You can leave your shoes untied
Watching everyone pass by
Every spacecraft in the sky
Move to California
From that little OL home
And the grass will keep on growing
Every seed that you are sowing
How many robins in the nest can fly?
All it takes is one to soar too close the sun
There will be some that never hatch
All it takes is one to soar too close the sun
Born out of instinct they learn to survive
All it takes is one to soar too close the sun
I can't come to grips with what I've done
My eyes don't display all the things I've seen
Secrets do I keep from you
Wish I could explain
When the spring returns the earth becomes a child

HOPING SOMEONE WILL INTERVENE
WILL NOT TEACH YOU TO LIVE ON YOUR OWN
GREY SKIES, GREEN MELODIES
OUT OF TUNE MEMORIES
Track Name: Lithium Queen
One day it began, I must confess, The phantom ceased to haunt me
One breath of fresh air and now you’ve got me back into the flame you’re burning
Ashes in my hair; it’s raining fire because I stole the sunlight.
You had burned the city. Selfishly, I keep the glow from everyone.

How could you steal all the air I breathe? I wanna know!
Caustic memory corrodes my bones.
I’m the simple problems you create for everyone.
Heiress Apparent, you take the throne!

How technology could choke the youth by all the powers vested.
Mandate all the manifest to read all that we wish perceived.
Fleeting theories that cloud my mind in nimbus shapes of questions
Who’s the hero now? The virus spreads its wings into a sky that’s burning.

How could you steal all the air I breathe? I wanna know!
Caustic memory corrodes my bones.
Have a lovely day while we take all you’ve ever owned
Dream of something then throw it away!

WE GLOW IN MONOCHROME; OPEN YOUR EYES
STEAL THE MEMORY RIGHT FROM YOUR OPEN EYES
SIM CARD REASSIGNED RESIGN TO OSTRESCIZE
PLUG IN, STAY CONNECTED, RECHARGE YOUR LIFE
Track Name: A Rose By Any Other Name
Losing seconds just like everything created
Miscreant behavior on this distant planet
Pleasant blackout, erase the sun
Pencil in God somehow…Start to re-build

What was I supposed to say to you (today)
Pearls of snow fall, I bid my best regards
There’s no way for you to know how I feel

Soothe your bones for a while
Module clones, Get inside
Measure me in guilt. See how far it could transport you

My life’s not flashing before my eyes
So why am I in danger?
IN DANGER!?

Trying to find an answer in a paper bag,
This statist mindset’s a major set back!

ENDANGERED
ENDANGERED

You (won’t/can’t) understand
-Mistreat her
-Til you’re older
Life’s not infinite, you won’t last in time
Track Name: Wish
You can’t keep giving in to fate
When you streamlined out of your cavalcade,
You can’t even remember the words you said
Kiss me once before you leave
We’re all liars and thieves marching into the sea
You’re all waging a war to belittle me
The memory escapes me
The drowning brain in my skull

For tomorrow is the day she leaves,
And simply you just cannot see
That she will never be able to erase you
Casting pearls out of rain
Waiting
Hoping

I never win, even when I do
I looked into the mirror
My reflection is misshapen
(Barely, I become. Why am I so dumb?)
I was the human sum
And now my eyes go numb
(Barely, I become. Why am I so dumb?)

For tonight I won’t be wearing white
And you always used to run the shore
But similar to my second sight,
You bleed of passion, midst of flight

Memory abandons me
I’m trapped inside this cage
Cerebral shifts and guillotines
Leave wounds upon my own screenplay
What I’d give to have you here
Your eyes a T.V. screen
Bandage me in newspaper
Like a gift on Christmas Day

(Oh, Why don’t you answer my call?)

Just know these broken wings will heal
And when your bones begin to mend,
Blackened wings will turn to white
And from my bed you’ll fly away
Wish upon this burning house
That you’d wake up okay
How could he abandon you?
Just know that I am here to stay
