Retrograde 03:46
the world is waking up from a dream the tide is coming out, believe me so we're in retrograde think it's time for a change 'cause water's rising past my face leaders, say your prayers what do you harbor? there is another way our mother's waiting sky's been grey for twenty days [we're] burnt out machines swallowed by a void, it seems remember the first ones, a double rhythm all the time flowing like water, dark, under the earth to birth, i take the knowledge turn the soul right out, inside another mother hey! it's all we got to stand upon our shoulders all the hope so close, in different space same room, but so far away waves of salt in ion seas shifting phase

Ultraviolet 04:40
finished all my gin & tonic staring in the ultraviolet project my life straight on my eyelids no, come back, scream to the sun dusk has hit, but still i feel so strung can't get you out of my head i wish that i could feel you breathing your body pressed to mine ever since i met you darling you've been so vivid in my mind just glowing my mind's a beautiful mess, i see it all so clearly lately, i can't help but wonder what i hold so dearly in your quest for relief, please don't evade my shoes i want just to share, i feel what's eating you it's eating me, too & i'm overwhelmed by you i can't even speak when we're in the same room & i'm falling something fierce safe to say it's all because of you & i'm so afraid i'll scare you so afraid i'll overstep a line & i'm writing just to dare you writing just to dare you
3.
Feel It 02:58
i just want to feel it, baby i just want to feel it, baby there ain't no one to tell you how to go there ain't no one to tell you how to go because the thing is, darling shapes are hard to see colors, too but you & i & we & they are red & gold & blue & sometimes, i think this: stars are hard to read planets, too but still, i stare through the night like a dog under the table to tell if we're able to... follow, there; the path unwinding or headed down the stairs to find there's something there [in the dark] can you feel me?

Strgzr 04:37
think i'm going hazy i've been dreaming for awhile yeah, i still dare to dream world been going mad lately all we need is some peace of mind all we need is a chance to find a little love for each other, now it's in your hands, now all this fussin' never got us anywhere never made a new piece of rock for us to hurl around in space free of want feeling loved & heard & treasured maybe we could try something new i see all the colors i see all the people around i see all the blue skies darling, falling down i see all the colors i see all the blue skies darling all the leaves around me, turning brown

Interlude 00:50
when the sun is rising & i'm half awake you make up the horizon so tenderly, you call to me
6.
march ascending the space around me spring is snowing summer's coming soon there are days when, i don't know what the hell's been going on there are days when, i look to the stars i look to the dirt & wonder how can anything stay the same? how can anything stay the same? there are days when, we catch it before it falls back to the ground there are days when, the vacuum of space calls me back to sound where the vines grow wild & true we find light in an empty room lay me down watch my heart beat faster, like... stand so strong feel my lungs collapsing, like...
7.
i carry the moon & i told my fate against a growing room fair to say it was a page away from truth to the mirror of your face & the song you sing to me, is a different tune i'd sleep all through the day & the silence is golden in this little space have you heard the news today? the air has turned away so you shut it out, and back into the rain turn me back, now till we know how turn me back, now till we know how
8.
Birdsong 03:44
swallow, sing me awake it's barely morning how sweet you sound as light surrounds us now seep into everything deep in this reverie fragments of color- in one ear, out the other shading over the lines of dusk & daylight the hollow beat & dreams unraveling sing to me of everything waking woods, the evergreens time flows away waiting for day to break starlight fading sky, a barely grey we stay under cover dreams here linger
9.
Lit Up 04:30
struck by lightning on the plain in spite of all the fear, to feel, to fight & dancing in the shadows brought the flame my mind was all ahead of me that night shelter sought inside a cave i couldn't rest my eyes so close to day her hair was hanging low, her voice of grace to make it down the mountain & find my strength smoke was rising from the hill & i could touch the air, so close, so still & moving through my veins, some fire to feed to know is to believe ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- smoke in burning sunlight eats away at those who stare please don't bat an eye please allow some wonder to float on & on, & time again, we fall with tender cries to wait until the breeze may come to wait until we may see different skies

Nightsong 04:52
awake, deep in the night light of its face is your guide inhale, star on the ceiling swallowed a ghost, your throat is a beacon wonder, time is unyielding here is the peace we can find stay low, moths at the window batting for freedom, & i... see strawberry moon rise above, rise above your shoulder we, we grow long as the earth, as the earth grows still there she sets below your sky soon, the twilight beneath your line of vision splashing my eyes in her wake as she opens your mind to... see strawberry moon rise above, rise above your shoulder we, we grow long as the earth, as the earth grows still

Phase 04:07
so : it goes one foot in front of the other like child takes after their mother can we learn from the world for the self for the space we share oh, the sky over our heads sings songs of rain & joy of sunlight, kissing our indifference it goes echoes so : it goes one foot in front of the other in 2 worlds we've yet to discover can we learn from prolix discourse when it's bleeding from the balcony overhead oh, sing songs in stride and sorrow 'cause, intangibly we fall apart fall back together love me, do.
