Track Name: Head Full of Wishes
Champagne in the city of whispers
A moment that won't let go of my head

And I know, never again
What I said, I meant
What I need, I will take

In saliva, a hope for a future
A life full of color and shape

But what I hoped, never became
What I said, I meant
What I need, I will take

She's got a head full of wishes
Track Name: Twin Heart
She my history, a broken past
all dark color, glass tipped over
She a dancer, grace and time
pull the wind close all around her

We, two forward orders screamed
You, their passion, me, their greed
Cannon, sabre, rank and file
Twin hearts flying over

She my rosary, a spotless mind
catch the tiger, save the killer
She a siren, sing to me
call my name and leave me shipwrecked

Orientation to place, time, and person
What state you live in and oceans surrounding us
You don't know what you see when you see it
You just know what you know when you know it
Track Name: Sansei
I was born someplace that has no name
Their voiceless bodies walk the streets like ghosts around a grave
That's where they'll lay me down
A soldier's heart bled out and given for a restless crown
I've never seen it, in all my years

I'll tell you how it started then
Short and simple, wine and woman kept me on my back
You can join the fold, take up a shield, and fight
or with no country, die alone.
Now ten years forward...

Lo and behold my king betrayed me then
His sword in my side as I waved his banner high above my head
Oh brother don't you cry
You've seen the worst in me and my black heart has justified much worse inside my mind

I'll come back clean now

It's all I've know, it's all I've loved in my days
Her light came down, my heart is yours
She stayed

A cold I wish I'd never known
Take my body, lay our bodies in rows upon the grass,
and beneath the sun, become an animal,
take flight and try the course again
Hope for better

One day I'm going to climb the steps
You'll wrap me in that lilac blanket and send me up your stairs
Won't you cup your hands, and like a family, love me
Lift me up and light the path
Track Name: Sour Chum
You were alone somewhere, taking drags, switching screens
The path of least disinterest, anonymity

You
Your smoke
She stuns
I'd do anything

We sent that lamb to slaughter, and got our fill for days
It's a step in no direction
She's gone like yesterday

You were alone somewhere, doing scenes
It's a subtle difference, script and apathy
Track Name: Yes (No)
The world is ours, now part the waves, walk across
Yeah, I believed in that one in my lighter days
And on that note I never reconciled their pictures with everything I'd seen

Now you choose silence over strength
It's looming higher every day

We are the world, we are the waves, walking lost,
crashing over the city streets like a neon parade
And when we go, we're going to burn out oh-so-soft
Chief don't talk to anyone, don't talk to anyone

Now we're on fire, we've got spark
Tilt your head, watch your mouth
No I'm not waiting for an invitation
Track Name: Limbo
I woke up with the forest singing. The only lights were my eyes. I was so far from home.
Is there anyone at all?
How much mercy is one man given?
The gentle kiss on the brow before we fall
And to anyone at all?

The times I died became my teachers
With their hands in mine I parted the veneer
There's a gold child waiting and my heart seeks her
I am the boy through the glass, I am everywhere but here

I saw the patterns the dead were weaving in the shadows around,
cold like stone
Touched by anyone at all
I collected the sunlight streaming, and kept it all in a jar
I won't let go
Not for anyone at all

I know how soon we die....
