Track Name: My Soul, the Stars, and I
There are paintings I have lived in all my life
Hiding in among the bushes down along the riverside
And I know I can still go there if I try
In the pictures of the pastures of the colors of my mind

There are songs that I hear playing in my head
From long before the time i understood the words they said
There are sounds that I can only hear inside
In the magic of the music of the memories of a child

There are people I have known for all of time
Traveling along beside me all are family of mine
Trading faces minds and ages names and signs
In the spiral of the cycle of the people of my lives

There are secrets I will keep until I die
Holy moments that are known to just my soul the stars and I
I'm not sure I could express them if I tried
In the solace of the silence of the secrets of the sky

There are paintings I have lived in all my life
Hiding in among the bushes down along the riverside
And I know I can still go there if I try
In the pictures of the pastures of the colors of my mind
Track Name: Dance of the Paper Dolls
My lady many times you lay down as a bridge between us
You say at first it felt so strange but now you've learned to let it flow
Ten thousand tongues of flame come dancing from your heart
In all directions
The very sky in hands in wonder so it too can know

As we together share this day of uncanny connections
Say that you'll be there for me when the floor at last gives way
When i let go i start to float and grow beyond my boundaries
Each sunrise so unique and yet they all come from a single day

There's a mountain and atop it is a crystal temple
There's a ladder that every soul must climb in time
Even if it takes ten thousand lifetimes just for your arrival
We are singular an can never leave a soul behind

And in the end of this eternity we all rise up together
To take our places in the line beyond the great expanse
Hand in hand as one we stand like paper dolls unbroken
Pure indefinable beautiful sorrowful we keep coming back
For the dance

My lady many times you've lay down as a bridge between us
You say at first it felt so strange but now you've learned to let it flow
Ten thousand tongues of flame come dancing from your heart
In all directions
Ten thousand tongues of flame ten thousand tongues of flame
Ten thousand tongues of flame come dancing from your heart
In all directions
Track Name: So Thick Is Your Brew
You work so hard sculpting every moment
Do you miss your masterworks when the moment has passed
Can you even take a breath if only for a second
Let your defenses down and be free at last
I miss the man who would sit in silence
And i wonder if hes asleep or dead
Is he at all aware of your current distance
From the rest of the world deep inside of your head

I don't doubt that what you say is true
But I'm choking on it now now so thick is your brew
I don't doubt that what you say is true
But I'm choking on it now now so thick is your brew

Don't get my wrong I am captivated by
Every verbal finger trap you compose
But it strikes me odd to see you constantly changing
Your list of names as sweet but you never smell the rose
And every time that i try and reach you
You wont relent and let your armor down
So I composed this wake up call to rouse you
In the hope that your spaceship will finally splashdown

I don't doubt that what you say is true
But I'm choking on it now now so thick is your brew
I don't doubt that what you say is true
But I'm choking on it now now so thick is your brew

You don't have to prove yourself to anyone anyway
You don't have to try to act so deep I know where you're at
And I want so badly just to reach right through and rescue you
From your tangled web of empty words
You’re so much deeper than that

I don't doubt that what you say is true
But I'm choking on it now now so thick is your brew
I don't doubt that what you say is true
But I'm choking on it now now so thick is your brew
Track Name: Matters of the Antiheart
Do you remember me
Am i too far away
I waited there for you
As the big bang around me grew
But you turned up just a moment late

In delicate times like these
In matters of the anti-heart
The shards of shattered cup
All become one and unfall up
But if we touch the world will come apart

In matters of the anti-heart
Will you ever unforget my name
When you unremember me
Every time that we unmeet
While my memories remain unchanged
And deep within your anti-mind
Where i am eternally erased
Is there no silhouette
From the first time you forget
When we unmet and finally went our ways

Look at how far we must reach
From the dawn until the death of time
You don't have to speak
We'll never end up cheek to cheek
And to save your life would be a crime

And if we were to touch by chance
Would our universes disappear
Is it inexact
To say that opposites attract
If it means that there'd be no one here

In matters of the anti-heart
Will you ever unforget my name
When you unremember me
Every time that we unmeet
While my memories remain unchanged
And deep within your anti-mind
Where i am eternally erased
Is there no silhouette
From the first time you forget
When we unmet and finally went our separate ways
Track Name: Travelin'
You might say I've been travelin'
You could say Ive been gone for a long time
And the faces always changing
I'm at home on the inside

They say you cant take it with you
I say there's no way to leave it behind
And the names all rearranging
They sound no stranger than mine

You can tell I've been exploring
Ive been places no one knows
All the stars are suddenly moving
Take me along wherever it goes

You might say I've been travelin'
You could say Ive been gone for a long time
And the faces always changing
I'm at home on the inside
Track Name: I Once Was
The feeling comes around again
I'm frozen solid break me up
Let me melt into the rain
Let me become what I once was

Here is where the chorus goes
Go ahead and make it up
Just trust the part of you that knows
Now never let go of that trust

Wash me down into the sea
Let it swell and lift me up
If there's anything left of me
Let it become what I once was

Here is where the chorus goes
Go ahead and make it up
Just trust the part of you that knows
Now never let go of that trust

Pour me out beneath the sun
Let its rays come lift me up
let the winds move me along
No trace left of what I once was

Here is where the chorus goes
Go ahead and make it up
Just trust the part of you that knows
Now never let go of that trust

The feeling comes around again
I'm frozen solid break me up
Let me melt into the rain
Let me become what I once was
Track Name: Lifesigns
Come back to the light
Show me some signs of life
I can’t let this time pass by
But there's nothing left to try

Come home to me
Show me something I can’t see
I cant just let you go
How to save you I don't know

I need more time
That decision isn’t mine
I can’t just say goodbye
And accept I’ll never know why

Look in to my eyes
Who says who lives or dies
I cant help but cry
I only hope you get to fly

Come back to the light
Show me some signs of life
Track Name: Faces, Names, and Numbers
When I start to lose myself in faces names and numbers
When I can’t release myself from deep and dreamless slumbers
When I have to hold my breath to keep from going under
I can’t stop thinking of you

I think of you
I don't know why but I do
I look up to the stars
I wish I knew where you are

When I cannot feel the rain, see lightning, hear the thunder
When I can’t distinguish total dark from vibrant color
When I have to lie awake in still and sleepless wonder
I can’t stop thinking of you

I think of you
I don't know why but I do
I lay back on the ground
I wish you were still around

When I start to lose myself in faces names and numbers
When I can’t release myself from deep and dreamless slumbers
When I have to hold my breath to keep from going under
I can’t stop thinking of you

I think of you
I don't know why but I do
I look up to the stars
I wish I knew where you are
Track Name: I Feel
I feel in this dream
In this dark and deadly deadly dream
Will shine a breaking dawn where we will come alive
I feel in this place
In this cold and empty space
Will come a waking moment we will all arise

You are the center of the universe
You are the all perceiving eye
You are the secret of the emptiness
You were not born you will not die

I feel in my heart
That we all grow from the dark
And ever upward high into the living light
I feel we are full
So much more than animals
Huddled close for warmth and safety from the night

You are the actor and you are the play
Only in being will you know
You walk the path laid out before your feet
You did not come you will not go

I feel in this dream
In this dark and deadly deadly dream
Will shine a breaking dawn when we will come alive
I feel in this place
In this cold and empty space
Will come a waking moment we will all arise

You are the center of the universe
You are the all perceiving eye
You are the secret of the emptiness
You were not born you will not die
You were not born you will not die

You were not born you will not die
