Track Name: Vanishing
Here
In the muck
Among the bees
I fear
I'm fearing you
In the night
We are perishing

Fear is the cloud
That hides in me
I fear
I'm losing you
In the light
We are perishing

Open your eyes up
Open up your eyes
Open your eyes
We're Vanishing

Fear
Of the cloud
Of yellow leaves
Of the indifference
Near
Almost gone
And what a tease
Oh god it's beautiful
Our cup is emptying

Open your eyes
We're Vanishing
Open your eyes up
We're Vanishing
Open your eyes
We're Vanishing
Open your eyes
We're Vanishing
Open your eyes
Track Name: Fragile
A walk in the dark
This place where we are
So fragile
Alight in fear
Fragile

Everything seems lost
It’s you reminding us
That everything we are is
Fragile

A flicker a spark
Take over this heartless ocean
There's water here
Fragile

Everything seems lost
It's you reminding us
That everything we are Is fragile
Track Name: Message
A point in time
Forgive now all you hold in
Warm cry
Glide
Lift yourself out
Proud rose
Fire-like
Cause where you go
Is where you are
Blue eyes loud
Not old
And in this sacrifice
Under the weight of life
Oh how small all things can seem
Think of warm vanilla wings
The ones I always wrapped you in
And just remember we are more than
What we seem to be
Of waking dreams reminding
The mirror falls upon your feet
Once more
Track Name: Be Like Water (Remix by Neil Davenport)
Be Like Water (REMIX)

Don’t chase ghosts
Don’t get too close
Don’t get caught
Don’t get spent
Don’t get bought
Don’t sell out
Don’t get bent
Don’t fuck your best friend
If everything is just the way it should be
Why am I still hungry?

Be Like Water

Don’t be shy
Don’t shut your eyes
Don’t get high
Expand your mind
Don’t keep in touch
Don’t touch yourself
Don’t ever wanna be somebody else
When everything is bad as it can be
Never be angry

Be Like Water
Must be the answer you want.

I’m not your slave
I’m not the one who burnt you out
Fucked you up and put you on
Broke you down
Ask someone else
To be that someone
I can’t be that someone
Who can be like water

Why can’t I be the answer you want?
Track Name: Scarlet Days
Left off in some sweet distance
I have since lost your feet to trace
I wish to make the rain come
To make your field glow light again

Heavy summer
Scarlet Days
Heavy summer
Scarlet Days
A thousand petals down
Are only a frame
For these
Heavy summer
Scarlet Days

Do you remember changing spaces?
Staying up to kill our secrets
Unwashed in some sweet filthy gaze
And loving every moment

Heavy summer
Scarlet Days
Heavy summer
Scarlet Days
A thousand petals down
Are only a frame
For these
Heavy summer
Scarlet Days

So might another serpent
He’s come to tell us
That which should not be
Yet I find your face in water
Always sleeping there to remind me

Heavy summer
Scarlet Days
Heavy summer
Scarlet Days
A thousand petals down
Are only a frame
For these
Heavy summer
Scarlet Days
Track Name: Back to the Earth
Patience lost me
In your dark eyes
By my doorway
We said goodbye

How these moments
Tend to disappear
Like fireflies
When I'm in your gaze
And stare
You circle like a shark
At night

But if I'm as true
As you are beautiful
We fly like birds
Break the barrier
To the sea
Back to the Earth
We go back to the Earth

Give your life back
This moment
Find your way back home
Track Name: Evolution
Nothing seems to be
What it was before
That you'll always be left
Wanting something more
When everything
That you thought you were is gone

Blue sky dawn
Evolution comes

Seek
But you may never find
The door
The one you thought that you were
Looking for
And the sound of silence
Pulls you to the floor

Blue sky dawn
Evolution comes

So you think you have been
Broken by the fall
You ask me
If there's any hope at all
Well
We must look forward
That is all I know

To the blue sky dawn
Evolution comes
Track Name: Brighton
A single bird
Flies over me
We manifest
Unconsciously
Throwing stones
Back to the sea

All we seem to do is brighten
All we seem to do

The scent of old
Wash over me
White words fall
From winter trees
Throwing stones
Back to the sea
All we seem to do is brighten

I hear your voice
Secretly
Whispers from
Bumblebees
All we seem to do is brighten
You brighten me
All we seem to do is brighten
Track Name: Tamara Song (Alt. Mix)
My sapphire stone
You lie above
I'm wandering
In sunlight
Love
We're fireflies
We're not alone

If we should come to rest
In the palm of heaven's hand
Then may we know the land
We travel on
If we should come to rest
In the palm of heaven's hand
And out of many there
Return to one

Your fragile soul
Is tired enough
So sleep in glow
The journey long

If we should come to rest
In the palm of heaven's hand
Then may we know the sand
We lie upon
If we should come to rest
In the palm of heaven's hand
And out of many there
Return to one

If we should come to rest
In the palm of heaven's hand
Then may we know the sand
We lie upon
If we should come to rest
In the palm of heaven's hand
And out of many there
Return to one
Track Name: Crumbs and Broken Shells (Alt. Mix)
All the colors fade in time
It's all gone black and white
Oh no
It's like the buildings are alive
And we are stuck inside their walls

Words won't
Lend any comfort now
But I won't let you dwell
In Crumbs and Broken Shells
Light my sympathetic eyes
To make you realize

On this bridge we walk along
But we are not alone
No no no
It's like the holy wars of time
Violently alive
But always calling

Words won't lend any comfort now
Cause you cannot climb out
Of Crumbs and Broken Shells
Light my sympathetic eyes
To make me realize
You are beautiful inside

Years of separating pain
Just to save yourself
The shame of trying
It's like the circle is complete
But we are left repeating in the quiet

But I'll hold the ladder down
And I won't let you drown
In Crumbs and Broken Shells
Light my sympathetic eyes
To make you realize

Lend any comfort now
Cause I won't let you drown
In Crumbs and Broken Shells
I can show you where to start
Send shock waves through your heart
So light my sympathetic eyes
You make me realize I
That I am beautiful Inside
