Track Name: Divination Sequence
Is it any wonder that we won't
Give up all of the things we've gathered?
Is it any wonder that we won't
Give a broken soul some laughter?
Place a barrier before we even know
Is there anywhere we're even meant to go?
I'm waiting just to slip into my life

It can be found by anyone, anywhere, anytime
Like a flash in an eon
You're the means to your divination
Track Name: Awear
In the city I was raised
Far from the rolling countryside
And I wither in the shade
Dry words speak of ancient days

When I'm gone
So far from home
Whittle lines in stone
So far away

Like the sky we fall

It's a pity and a shame
Honest days are hard to find
And I stutter when I say
Remember to forget me

When I'm gone
So far from home
Whittle lines in stone
So far away

Like the sky we fall

We fall
Track Name: Speaking Sane
What my words don't convey at all
Is the inner meaning of my love I try to send
And when it isn't clear enough
I feel the tension build
I try and I try but I just can't fake it

Something's strange
A minute ago I was withering change
She's crying alone no matter what I say
How do I know that I'm speaking sane?
I'm having the feeling that something's strange
A minute ago I was rhythmic change
She's crying alone no matter what I say
How do I know that I'm speaking sane?

How do I know?

So here and now I'll slay it all
The evil that has filled inside of my heart
Here it dies
I hope my soul can be resolved
And let a love so great
Explode and expand until I just can't take it

Something's strange
A minute ago I was withering change
She's crying alone no matter what I say
How do I know that I'm speaking sane?
I'm having the feeling that something's strange
A minute ago I was rhythmic change
She's crying alone no matter what I say
How do I know that I'm speaking sane?

How do I know?
Track Name: Half Asleep
I'm falling fast asleep
Dreaming of the place I used to be, free
Freedom isn't free
I think you're wrong

Can't believe it
Don't you know?
Don't care much for you
You'll be dead when you're gone

I'm falling fast asleep
Dreaming of the place I like to be, free
Free from all the change
I think you're wrong

Dear Felicia, do you hurt?
Are you burning up?
I think we should make love

We're not getting any younger

My body hurts
Every bone in my frail, skinny frame
You want to love me
But you need me to change
And that hurts, that hurts like hell
And it hurts, it hurts like hell

And it hurts
Track Name: Starving At The House Of Pretas
I'm so hungry, I'm so hungry

Everything they touch, they want to keep
Give them one or two and they'll need three
Leaving nothing left for you and me

I'm likely to stab a hole in your bag
(An endless destination of unhappiness)
So you can let go

You can starve in the walls of that death house
(Watching you gorge yourself on the floor)
Or come with me and feed your soul

I'm so hungry, I'm so hungry
Track Name: Burnt Post
Look what I just did here
Should've said not to go back in there
Bully wants you dead, dead
No way out

You've gone deep into the hole
In ways no one can explain
Chasing your tail like the denizens of hate
Within forgetfulness, you're losing your happiness
So now I've arrived here to bring you some aid
And turn your motion on

You've seen yourself outside of yourself
You will find solace where it wells
The spiral arms that pulse our steps
A noiseless ringing out
The slamming doors and fists in walls
Are passing dreams
Without a voice or second thought

Look what I just did here
Should've said not to go back in there
Bully wants you dead, dead
No way out

Bully wants you dead
Nailed clean to the burnt post
Bully wants you dead
Track Name: Effort
Oh me, oh my
I'm startled that you'd listen
There's no reasoning with anger and lies
Oh me, oh my
Victim of your condition

The friend that you want
But not the one you deserve
And now you want to die

Try and dust off your eyes to see reality
You will find there are endless things to live for
It's attachment, not love, the world you're living in
Climb on down from the illusions that you've made
Come be alive with everything

We're waiting for you
Track Name: Non Returner
The fallen leaves
The changing tides that sleep inside
Have yet to be seen
I know that every single soul
Won't know what I mean
So fare thee well, my friend

Just know I love you

Play as a child in the field, without worries
All of your good deeds will pacify fury
Take the fear of the world
And shove it down Satan's throat

The drama you're in is the drama you make
Come to terms and the cycle of the wheel will break

All of the hours spent sitting and loathing
Focusing on television and clothing
Envelop it all in our love
And be a non-returner

Just know I love you
Track Name: Treasures (Tapping On The Threshold)
A ring that swept along his skin
There it held a spoken vow
Not to waste his ill thoughts on his kin
No one ever told him how
They just said be prepared
And even if you're scared
They'll be coming for you
They'll be coming from you

Oh well, he's a loner now
Tapping on the threshold of himself
Oh, if he's a knower now
Carrying the raft beyond the shore
Oh well, he's a loner now

Someday they will make him king
Even if he doesn't want it
Someday they'll make him everything
Even if he has to lose it all
Treasures buried with his bones
Never really even meant a thing
Even if he doesn't want it

A dirty girl then lets him in
Carrying a dampened towel
Asks when his journey is to begin
He couldn't even figure that out
He just said he's aware
When no one is there
They'll be coming for her
They'll be coming from her

Oh well, he's a loner now
Tapping on the threshold of himself
Oh, if he's a knower now
Carrying the raft beyond the shore
Oh well, he's a loner now

Someday they will make him king
Even if he doesn't want it
Someday they'll make him everything
Even if he has to lose it all
Treasures buried with his bones
Never really even meant a thing
Someday they will make him king
Even if he doesn't want it
Track Name: Guardian Paradigm
Well, I've never had to describe
The feeling of loneliness that overcomes me
When I'm prey to my pride
Now it's like every corner and seam
Asks me then to believe
I imagine what I take for reality
Is there a piece of the story
I just cannot read from this side?
If I open wide

All the tears, the anger and deception
Like rain from the clouds we just let them fall
Turn our paradigm to protection
Like the chalk on the sidewalk
In the rain it's gone
Every little fear of rejection
No matter how certain and still it feels now

Someday, I'll give you everything you deserve
I'm sorry for not being myself
But every now and then
I keep trying to hard to hold on to what we have
Some days, It's clear that I blame this on myself
Through my heart I want to be the guardian
Of every little thing
Though it's said in the end
There are some things you just can't save

Well, I've never had to describe
The feeling of hope that emerges from me
When I choose not to hide
When I open wide

All the tears, the anger and deception
Like rain from the clouds we just let them fall
Turn our paradigm to protection
Like the chalk on the sidewalk
In the rain it's gone
Every little fear of rejection
No matter how certain and still it feels now

I'm only trying to help and you make a break for it
"We are not okay!" I swear I heard you say
I'm only trying to help and you make a break for it
I see in time that you're bound to forgive me anyway
Tonight I'll fall asleep and maybe

Someday, I'll give you everything you deserve
I'm sorry for not being myself
But every now and then
I keep trying to hard to hold on to what we have
Some days, It's clear that I blame this on myself
Through my heart I want to be the guardian
Of every little thing
Though it's said in the end
There are some things you just can't save
Track Name: Divination Sequence (Reprise)
Is it any wonder that we won't
Give up all of the things we've gathered?
Is it any wonder that we won't
Give a broken soul some laughter?
Place a barrier before we even know
Is there anywhere we're even meant to go?
I'm waiting just to slip into my life

It can be found by anyone, anywhere, anytime
Like a flash in an eon
You're the means to your divination
Track Name: In The Spring
Picking up strong a phenomenon
Love will push it out of me, love will push it out of me
Picking up strong a phenomenon
Love will push it out of me
And love will push it back to you

Always back to you
Always back to you

Turn about, can't you see?
Everything is beautiful to me
Everyone is beautiful

Even if you don't think so I do
Even if you don't
I don't believe in moving on

Picking up strong a phenomenon
Love will push it out of me, love will push it out of me
Picking up strong a phenomenon
Love will push it out of me
And love will push it back to you

Turn about, can't you see?
Everything is beautiful to me
Everyone is beautiful

Everyone is beautiful
