Track Name: Wonderless
I was waiting at our favorite place, counting stars at the end of the day
I waited but you never came, maybe it was all a dream
You were never here
I chased the fires of my father's dreams, Burning balls of gasoline
Looking for love looking for light, Nothing but the cold dark night
I try to reconcile

Can’t get you out of my mind I can’t, can’t get you out, out of my thoughts
I want to go back to what it was
Can’t get you out of my mind I can’t, can’t get you out, out of my thoughts
I want to go back to what it was

Cling tight to what you don’t know about, Run fast from every shadow of a doubt
Build the ramparts and brace the siege, don’t stop till I’m on my knees
and you sound the battle cry
Wonderless you’re so self assured, about the outcomes of the world
Wonderless no mystery, only the right to believe
But I sound the battle cry

Can’t get you out of my mind I can’t, can’t get you out, out of my thoughts
I want to go back to what it was
Can’t get you out of my mind I can’t, can’t get you out, out of my thoughts
I want to go back to what it was

When we fear the answers we don’t ask the questions, just tell us what we know
When it’s us and them then it makes things easy, the labels say it all
Humility goes out the window, when grace is at a loss
So they patronize you, assume compliance, your back against a wall

Can’t get you out of my mind I can’t, can’t get you out, out of my thoughts
I want to go back to what it was
Can’t get you out of my mind I can’t, can’t get you out, out of my thoughts
I want to go back to what it was
You’re so Wonderless, don’t want to be so, wonderless
When you tell me how it is, I say it’s wonderful
Track Name: Love Me Right
Peel My skin back, Call me by a new name
See my bones and tell me how I'm made
If l am fully only solely what I’m made to be
If I am made of holy bones and begging to be free
Peel my skin back and promise me you won't laugh
See my insides try to keep themselves back
If I am swimming in the rivers of my history
If I am, can you meet me can you meet me as I sink

You should know by now, figured it out to see somehow
You should know by now, I don't want to teach you how to love me right

Peel your skin back and watch me as I dive deep
dry the river find the soil beneath
Hold my hand, open thirsty earth is ready to be green
Hold my hand, slow and growing into who I’m made to be

You should know by now, figured it out to see somehow
You should know by now, I don't want to teach you how to love me right
You should know by now, figured it out to see somehow
You should know by now, I don't want to teach you how to love me right

You should know by now, figured it out to see somehow
You should know by now, I don't want to teach you how to love me right
Track Name: Arms Of Our Lovers
Hey you, man on the moon
The night sky is slipping slowly out of reach
Hey you child in the clouds
The north wind is blowing oh so violently

Wake up, walk out; see the city now from the clouds
My demons are my own
Her veins are sick with the suburbs and with her sounds
Welcome to the rest of the world

As we lay in the arms of our lovers and pray, and pray
Beg forgiveness from our sons and daughters, they wait they wait

She cried, wide eyed
Watching the dreams unfold as my world turned around
Cold my clockwork unwinds
Dropping the pieces of my insides on to the ground

Turn on turn up, wind the gears to crawl
Move on like you were made to
Dance now with the man on the moon, take a look at the stars
Welcome to the rest of the world

As we lay in the arms of our lovers and pray, and pray
Beg forgiveness from our sons and daughters, they wait they wait
We can build up a hope with our brothers we’ll make, we’ll make it
Yeah, yeah, yeah

What will you do now my friend?
Will we be free?
What will you do now my friend? Oh oh...
What will you do now my friend?
Will we be free?
What will you do now my friend? Oh oh…

Cold my clockwork unwinds
Cold my clockwork unwinds

As we lay in the arms of our lovers and pray, and pray
Beg forgiveness from our sons and daughters, they wait they wait
We can build up a hope with our brothers we’ll make, we’ll make it
Yeah, yeah, yeah
As we lay in the arms of our lovers and pray, and pray
Beg forgiveness from our sons and daughters, they wait they wait
We can build up a hope with our brothers we’ll make, we’ll make it
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Track Name: We Are Gods, Lost
We describe the stars
We dance with the heavens
We draw upon the ages
We build our, we build our towers

We reason with eternity
we know our insides through and through
We draw upon infinity
We enslave our enemies through and through

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

We are flaccid like our idols
We are slaves to our survival
We are conquerors and warriors
We are losing all our, all our battles

Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh

We are gods, we are lost, we are lost, we are lost
We are gods, we are lost, we are lost, we are lost
We are gods, we are lost, we are lost, we are lost
We are gods, we are lost, we are lost, we are lost

When you’re done conquering your brother
When you’re done stealing from your mother
Will you pray?

We are gods, we are lost, we are lost, we are lost

We are gods, we are lost, we are lost, we are lost
We are gods, we are lost, we are lost, we are lost
We are gods, we are lost, we are lost, we are lost
We are gods, we are lost, we are lost, we are lost
Track Name: Alone, Or Not
As the night falls, and I’m alone with my ghosts
The stories I have been told, as my heart moves the earth
We have learned to be alone but it’s
begging me begging me begging me to call me home

My heart is yours, we can live it right until the morning comes

All we have is the moment of breath
We displace the ether spilling over the earth
Is it not that we are soil
Begging now begging for the space that we borrow

Full of breath in and facing the sun
watching the history of tomorrow come
I can walk in to my own and I’m
Begging I’m begging I’m begging I’m not alone

My heart is yours, we can live it right until the morning comes
This night is ours, we can take our time, don’t have to be alone

Burn the remnants of my youth
If my earth can be made new
Place my stories in the soil
So they can grow into a place that’s always waiting for you

She was the stars and my heart was the ocean
We’re the kings of the future we were building
I am the rain and she is the river
Filling each other up, filling each other up

She was the stars and my heart was the ocean
We’re the kings of the future we were building
I am the rain and she is the river
Filling each other up, filling each other up

My heart is yours, we can live it right until the morning comes
This night is ours, we can take our time, don’t have to be alone

As the night falls, and I’m alone with my ghosts
The stories I have been told, as my heart moves the earth
We have learned to be alone but it’s
begging me begging me begging me to call me home

All we have is this moment of breath
We displace this ether spilling over the earth
Is it not that we are soil and we’re
Begging now begging now for the space that we borrow

Full of breath in and facing the sun
watching the history of tomorrow come
I can walk in to my own and I’m
Begging I’m begging I’m begging I’m not alone
