Track Name: Ursa Minor/Aleatoric Fanfare
Rushing water through the cracks beneath the door
There's pressure on the other side, I've never drowned before
I know there's others lost out there, just drifting on debris
But they're never coming back for me
There's places they gotta be
They've gotta grow a family and pass away at 83
And I will fall into the sea, with this structure sinking all around me
Ursa Minor, take me

Have you ever drowned in your living room?
Have you ever lived so long, but never had lived farther from the truth?
So say what you wanna know
Before you let me go
Down the rabbit hole

The currents pull me under
We'll breathe no more
So send light of day

Pull me out, grab my hand
Your arms retracted as you gripped land
Fight the tide, unearth these bones
If I let go I shall never see home

The currents pull me under
We'll breathe no more
Track Name: Quiet Room
Shattered hearts on broken glass
A single measured time elapsed
Of leaves of autumn trees that fall below
I'm asking for your sympathy
Even though it's always given to me
Social scenes are my disease that never let me grow

And I can't scream to let you know
I can't bear to let this go

And all the colors in your eyes
I don't wanna see you cry anymore

You let out a sigh, that'll quiet a room
Makes your friends wanna know what's bothering you
And you let 'em know cause you always tell it all
You're holding back what you wanna say
Throw it all, throw it away
I can't live another day to know that you're not home

I can't scream to let you know
I can't bear to let this go

And all the colors in your eyes
I don't wanna see you cry anymore

The ions fill and waste away
They reek of death, replace, decay
I'm wide awake, it's 3am
Repeat the hunt until repent
Track Name: Zipper
Sometimes I feel like I'm watching my life from behind my eyes
Lately I've felt like I'm living my life from inside my mind

And after it's all been done
We're still existing motionless, emotionless
Take me for what I am
Take me for what I am not
As long as you're with me in time
I will not share these emotions now
emotions now
Take me for what I am
Please try to understand

Sometimes I feel like I'm watching my life from inside my mind
Lately I've felt like I'm living my life from inside my mind

And after your guise falls
My eyes will follow your motion
All along, you're what your waiting for
While I'm trapped up in my thoughts
You're drowning for what you love
And time will show if this is just best for us both

Take me for what I am

Sometimes I feel like I'm watching my life from inside my mind
Lately I've felt like I'm living my life from inside my mind
Track Name: Low
So lay low
It's over your head
I watched you grow
And when the fall ends
We won't
So watch for your breath as frost takes hold

No I never heard a thing about you
Lay low

This Winter won't go
The Spring warms my soul

And if the frost turns your nose red
It's too cold to leave your bed
It's over your head
You're too naive to know what they meant

No I never heard a thing about you
Lay low

This Winter won't go
The Spring warms my soul
Fed by water, gardens grow
I'm pushing daisies through the snow

I know that you're cold
But I felt your heart and I felt warm
So lay low

This Winter won't go
The Spring warms my soul
Fed by water, gardens grow
I'm pushing daisies through the snow

So lay low
No I never heard a thing about you
Lay low
No I never heard a thing about you
Track Name: Something You'd Say
When faces change to space
There's nothing left to chase
If we're honest with ourselves and each other
And riots all die down
I still can hear the sound
Of their voices chanting slogans
Burning becomes burnt
Feelings become hurt
I fell asleep on angel days and woke misunderstood

Falling out of love with your cliches
Looking for a dove in the shade
Bring an empty bag next time you're here
I'm not fighting with you nothing's gonna change
Falling out of love with your cliches
Looking for a way out of this place
Don't you put that look upon your face
This all just sounds like something you would say

The tape's on the bed and I'm changing for me
It's all in your head, you never know what I mean
That sounds like something you would say
I'm outside of town and I forgot how to speak
The landline is down, it's not the same when you scream
That sounds like something you would say

No fruit grows without flame
I tasted honey and felt ashamed
All the brake lights flicker out
We bury blood within the sound
Burning becomes burnt
The light burns but it burns good
You fell asleep on angel days and woke misunderstood

Like the first song is always sweet
The best things in life are free
I cut the cord on my designer dreams
I feel reborn in the dead dog's heat
I cut the brakes to feel the speed
I'm spilling honey in my chamomile tea
I set fire to the sycamore tree
I'm turning profit on the falling leaves
Track Name: No Backyard
It starts in fall when flowers grey
A scene where nothing gold can stay
I keep forgetting what you'd say
"You wanted more than you could take"

I don't wanna sleep in the living room
This couch alone is not our home

Backyards and cigarette smoke,
For loved ones you've had to let go
You'll bend in the Michigan heat
I just wanna sing something sweet

"You wanted more than you could take."
Track Name: Turn You Blue/Life on Mars!
I just wanna know what you're thinkin' about
But I don't wanna know what you're thinkin' about
I just wanna know if you're feelin' some doubt
But I don't wanna know if you're feelin' some doubt

I don't wanna turn on you
I don't wanna turn you blue

I just wanna know what you're thinkin' about
But I don't wanna know what you're thinkin' about
I just wanna know if you need to get out
But I don't wanna know if you need to get out

I don't wanna turn on you
I don't wanna turn you blue

I just wanna know if you're thinkin about
But I don't wanna know what you're thinkin about

"Ladies and gentlemen,
The chief hope of our enemies is to divide the United States along racial and religious lines and thereby conquer us.
Let's not spread prejudice.
A divided America is a weak America.
Through our behavior, we encourage the respect of our children, and make them better neighbors to all races and religions.
Remind them that being good neighbors has helped make our country great, and kept her free.
Thank you."

It's all the same
It's all insane

Bound and gagged, ritualized
Young at heart and ready to fly
Fast asleep, grow up and die
Void and waste, no sign of life
Trauma jerks the soul from its moors
I believe there's life on Mars
Track Name: The Sun Was The Moon
It felt like forever in your room
We'd play pretend till the Sun was the Moon
The water was warm; it was turning you blue
And when i'd had my fill, you were singing the news:
You don't value heavy machinery
You're in love with some high school scenery shit
Everyone I know is afraid to be dead
You stick to your ink, cause it's all in your head

It's so much easier singing someone else's words
Lay your feelings out in a Quiet Room where they can't be seen or heard
Take your pictures down
You blend into the walls

Shock and awe
Anxious and vain
You paint by the numbers
It's all insane
Kiss the skin before it breaks
Your pine-forest mind
It's all the same

It was bound to begin, it was sure to be May
Arbitrary, en vogue, you submit to the change
Not a moment too soon, or a season too late
You're becoming the man that you wish you could hate
Cleanse the psyche with thunder and lightning
Play your songs so I can sleep in sound
Put your hand to the pen and wave your flag
Love your love in remembrance of all that you've had

It's so much easier singing someone else's words
Lay your feelings out in a Quiet Room where you can't be seen or heard
There's a line on hold
But no one ever calls

Shock and awe
Anxious and vain
You paint by the numbers
It's all insane
Kiss the skin before it breaks
Your pine-forest mind
It's all the same

Lament for the end
Sweet nocturne pouring fourth from your cellar door
There are years and years you never meant to never see
I'm crippled and bored by your passive-aggressive beliefs

Now that the Michigan Spring's come to pass
Did you get you want, did it make you a man?
The radio shifts and plays back the mass
All electrical impulses fading to black
I tried to be patient and temper the seas
Lighting a flame to the sycamore tree
Burning, becoming; the Phoenix is free
I wish I was ready to love me for me

Hem the seams on our clothes
Pick the rose, you might get thorns
Track Name: Sleeping Bear Waltz/Aleatoric Fanfare (Reprise)
Do you feel the heat?
Feel the sun?
Resting on the sea
Stranger things have happened
But a man said to me
Don't let them fool you
The earth is on repeat
I've tried to find the words
Endless moments, they seem
Time is just deception
This is just a dream

An eclipse has cast
The tides are high
My slowly sinking spirit
withered and dry
