Track Name: Continental Shelf
I have no sense of how we got here
I don't know if we crashed or landed
With no memory at hand
With my back against the center

Strange place to meet
Edge of the shelf
and from the salt expanding
flowing through me
that's the situation in a shell

We have spent this time suspended
and preparing a new entrance
with the cycle of the tide
and renewal of the senses

Strange place to meet
Edge of the shelf
and from the salt expanding
flowing through me
that's the situation in a shell
Track Name: Keeping Quiet
Insane design
Holding on for dear life
This strange sign
Indicating landslides

You can put me on the list and rush me through here
I've been waiting patiently until now
Keeping quiet too long
All here now, then all gone

Restrained desire
Superstition in sight
Look straight in the eye
of the tempted outcome

This is all about the motion in the same space
To be shed and introduced a long way
Keeping quiet too long
Still on send 'til I'm done
Track Name: Automaton
Seek out sentient life
Be like an automaton
Beat out messages in lights
Reduce the savage intentions

Keep both hands in sight
Be like an automaton
Keep the posture upright
Until they come to our side

Of this assault
All I can say
I haven't the strength
To send them away

Speaking in rhythms
Of zeros and ones
Mass hypnosis
Automaton
Track Name: The Nth Degree
I've seen the century
is entering descent
Land so gracefully
as if we had the whole thing planned

Keep away atrophy
standing on toes
to never say the same thing twice
and never have the same advice

Heal, create
Heal, create
Heal, create

Heal, create
Heal, create
Heal, create

I've seen the n'th degree
approaching us all
it advanced unexpectedly
and larger than we first thought

Keep away atrophy
by kicking up dusk
Incendiary fuses burn
spreading out across the earth

Heal, create
Heal, create
Heal, create

Heal, create
Heal, create
Heal, create
Track Name: Hang Onto Me
Measure the heat
From the skin
Steady the breath
Soften eyes
We are the same
Holding tight
To the trappings
Of life

Hang onto me
What's been before
What is to come is to come

Hang onto me
Change me into someone I can trust
Someone I can trust

Limit the noise
In the mind
Steady the self
And empathize
We are safe
Within sight
Of the old world set alight
Track Name: Gamble
It's a gamble
When you want to live
Set your own way
Time closes in

I'll follow you
I'll follow
I'll follow

And when I am aware
I walk an unfamiliar way
Instill an intuition
About what lies ahead

I'll follow you
I'll follow
I'll follow­
Track Name: Head in the Clouds (JS Mix)
Someone's got their head in the clouds
But it's mostly fear
of picking up pieces
seconds after a crash
Useful and scared
of just not knowing
when to agree and
when to brace for attack
Ooh, soon enough for you
Ooh, soon enough for everyone
Oooh, suited up at the front of the room
Oooh, losing control like you know you should
A sample of sorts
hearing a memory
easy to replay
and relive that way
A simple way to be
At the inception
or at least to feel the familiar
Ooh, soon enough for you
Ooh, soon enough for everyone
Oooh, suited up at the front of the room
Oooh, losing control like you know you should
Track Name: To the Core (with tay0)
For as long as we can
Far along prescribed paths
Into the ether, something sent
And the ground opens up for us again

Inside of the fault
The life blood of the world
Like a rag on the road
Cast off in oil

To the core
Ever deeper until we are no more
To the core
To the core

To the core
Ever deeper until we are absorbed
To the core
To the core
Track Name: Horizon (with RJ Chevalier)
Boundaries between the earth and sky
Traveling in our hearts and minds

Encircle, celestial
Reaching beyond me
Falling to the earth

Air is thin in steep ascent
Approaching the horizon
When I bring you closer still
We'll mix among the life we've lived
And shorter distances

Boundaries, mostly meaningless
Pulling me closer with each breath

Perception, perspective
Searching somewhere
Fall into the dream

Air is thin in steep ascent
Approaching the horizon
When I bring you closer still
We'll mix among the life we've lived
And shorter distances
Track Name: If
If a picture paints a thousand words
Then why can't I paint you?
The words will never show, the you I've come to know
If a face could launch a thousand ships
Then where am I to go?
There's no one home but you, you're all that's left me too

And when my love for life is running dry
You come and pour yourself on me
If a man could be two places at one time
I'd be with you
Tomorrow and today, beside you all the way

If the world should stop revolving spinning slowly down to die
I'd spend the end with you
And when the world was through

Then one by one the stars would all go out
Then you and I would simply fly away
