Night & Day 04:18
In the day, the sun comes for you With her rays she burns right through you You disappear as surely as the moon But when I hold you in my mind’s eye I, I can see the line of your face I, I have been right through your head You will say we’re always tethered that night and day’s a false impression I have seen your shadow walking free creeping in the moonlit city I can see the line of your face I have been right through your head I have seen I’ve seen right through your mind I have seen I’ve seen right through your lies I can see the line of your face I have been right through your head
2.
After all All the waiting We’re alone with what we’re facing Acid rain acid falling We’re remains of our failings But in the end we’ll always rapture like the sun After all the ages she’s imploding over us Imploding over us But in our way we’ve been holding Each other’s fate to attention But in the end we’ll always rapture like the sun After all the ages she’s imploding over us Imploding over us

Zenith 04:23
As we’re slowly moving through a dream state I’m an open field I’m the road And you’re the night sky You stir and glow brighter still, I’m blind I can see the last day And the last leaves falling And a wind consumes me / As you light the sky I’m a blade of grass / With your blue and gold In an open field / I’ll wake, Blind I can see the last day And the last leaves falling I have seen my zenith and I feel the green calling I have seen my zenith and I feel the green calling
4.
For So Long 06:29
You living endlessly And sleeping through the day Waiting for your time to come For so long As if some other day Holds you in your place But I can only hold my tongue For so long I know its comforting Falling for a myth But time can only be prolonged For so long Time can only be prolonged for so long Time can only be prolonged for so long
5.
Alien 05:01
There in plain sight hovering on Feigning sunlight, centuries longing I will climb on your plane, I will climb Only for light and the sake of it Through the rollers, timeless in space A Yellowed stranger brands me in red ink I will find your mark there on my side Only to sigh, forsaking it Like a sleeper, buried in skin Your receiver is moving my feet I will march to a beat, yeah straight from your palm Only in flight of my tender head Its illusion, its like a trip Playing house and home, and falling in step I have lost to your game, I have not Even the mind to answer you There its as a dream Where only we’ve been I will shy from your face, holding your eyes I will fly into madness, all of the while Longing for light and the sake of it Longing for light and the sake of it Only for light and the sake of it
6.
There is an evil, Winding along They say you can find it, But I haven’t seen it She tells me in space, Its reflected on moons a-glow But I haven’t seen it, Maybe they dreamed it There is little left to discern As we’re flying into the sun its not fabled we’ve dreamed it There are these people, inside us all She can’t perceive them, leading her mind astray But I cant believe that, and I won’t receive them either Cause I need to feel it, maybe ill dream it. There is little left to discern As we’re flying into the sun its not fabled we’ve dreamed it winding along into the haze of the sun winding along under the haze of the sun
7.
Watching Us 04:31
Why in the evening As we revere Why don’t the gods then appear? Then in the morning Under the sun Is someone watching on? There’s no one watching Down on us There’s no one watching us And if it’s destined Aligned in the stars Why hasn’t judgment begun? There’s no one watching Down on us There’s no one watching us There’s no one watching down on us There’s no one watching us There’s no one watching us There’s no one watching us
8.
As with the moon in your head it takes me All our thoughts are unsaid it takes me, it takes me It takes me away to a place Take me away outer space Take the eyes from my head, I’m oblivious Spare my memory of them, I’m living there, in lieu of here it takes me away to a place take me away outer space
9.
She's Lying 04:49
She’s been keeping a jealous mind at bay Casting shadows into outer space Yeah its in her head she’s gone insane She says its aimless, solar phases, but I can tell when She’s lying She’s finding herself In the end there’s nothing you can say She’ll try to burn the skin right off your face Your skull will keep its shape, its all the same Her sunlight’s tricked you, her silhouette too, it felt like truth but She’s lying She’s finding herself I imagine she’s lying She’s lying to herself She’s lying She’s finding herself She’s lying She’s finding herself

PLANETS AWAY We are familiar We are at odds We’re strung together like the stars I am your Matthew Polly sits by You’re not unnoticed out of sight I have been dreaming and aloof I would be happy, and you But you’re not alive here Home is planets away I would be happy, and you Spiralling upward Waving goodbye Had we’ve kept it eye to eye It’s been peculiar and askew I would be happy, and you (But) you’re not allowed here Home is planets away I would be happy, and you. SLEIGHT OF HAND In the day the sun she’ll come for me, Oh it’s just her sleight of hand And we’ll lay in her disregard, And turn our stomachs inside out To write with entrails on the ground Mmm You will say her warmth is comforting, Oh its just her sleight of hand But her rays given without mind, Turn us old before our time We’re watered down like Jesus’ wine Mmm In a way we trace her solar path Oh its just her sleight of hand Like a stray, with no celestial home We’re flying blind by brail of stone And space debris as trusted friends Mmm In the night, there in moonlit hills Send me into darkened skies Wear a smile pale upon your face Should the sun rise in my place So it must, her sleight of hand Mmm
