Track Name: Atlas
I have made mistakes
I've been treading water
I have watched the distance take my place
I have told you lies
Words I can't remember
Swept beneath the truth along the way

After all, where are we
Do we know any better
One slip of the compass
And we are lost

Carry on this way
A stranger in a stranger home
Tired is all I can afford
Question why we
How can I remember what we find
What defines the prize and what we know

Travel the night in circles
Into the waters occupied
Edge of the earth
Send me away if I...

Too far away
Do we know any better
Track Name: Omega
Take this with confidence
I watch the pages drain our eyes
We move indifferent to the time

It's you

In the end how can I release this
Relive it
All I am the truth I can't defend
I'm breathing out

We knew this
We prove our confidence
Away I'd rather sleep a while
We move indifferent to the time

It's you

I was the last to know
You were the last to come home
We moved along
Track Name: Redshift
Crouched in the dirt
You push, you pull, you separate
Yet the roots remain as the setting sun
Kisses the earth

How long
I've been a fool again

Here at the edge
Time extends a long way out

Question their truth, their proof
Their lies, their confidence

Still your roots remain as the setting sun
Kisses the earth

How long
You've been a fool again

You'll find me in that place beyond
These instincts have their way

Gravity takes no prisoners
Driving us into the infinite
Track Name: Singularity
I told you once
Here at the bottom
This message you left behind
Will find me

Untangled
With what is infected
Completes the connection
And bides me
Drives me home

I always wanted to find out
While in this temporary state
I can't find it in the falling out
And if all I know
The result is more violent

So obvious
Yet you didn't notice
If left to your own device
You'll find me
Entangled with what I connected
It feeds my intentions
And drives me
Bides me home

I have felt what you feel
Told you once
Track Name: Apogee / Perigee
The way the red, the color, changed my mind about
This place where we reside is like
The way in dreams when stars collide
You find that we are all alike
And all alone, as far as I can see
You and I became what I believe

The way the red, the color, changed my mind
Questioned, looked behind and disconnected
We are all running blind and misdirected
I'll hold my fucking breath 'til you convince me otherwise

I might never have known why

The way the red, the color, changed my mind about
The way in dreams you find that we are all alike
If I must fill this hole
Drowning, insignificant
One taste to me life, infinite
Will surely bring the will to guide me home
Track Name: Varicose
Follow my fault lines down
You pruned memories
And preened again

This motion
A wave
Every varicose
A vein


I remember now
Aching is calling me out
To play


Swallow my open core
And soon memories
Will feed again


This ocean's awake
Every second lasts
A day
Change your focus now
Candor is calling you out


I've been looking for...
Oh how I've given blood away
Something is tugging at my tongue
A name


I could go on but...
You told me once
Timing is everything
And now
Everything you ever told me is gone
Track Name: The Turing Machine
Patterns erase
Matter informed
A simple device
I was made for this

Can you hear me calling into the void

Goodbye, the body often dies
I let it go every time

A Turing machine
A simple device
I was made for this

Can you hear me calling into the void

Goodbye, the body often dies
I let it go every time

My calculations form a doorway
My time has come
Track Name: Nettlebirds
Move
There's a sound that pulls you through
The more you nest in my regret
The more I slip away
Move
Have you no purpose?
I guessed your colors this time
This black and white has bled all over

So
Another realm I've been before
I sat at the bottom

Soon
When the cage has swallowed you
The more you push my arms away
The more I follow through
Soon
I'll give you purpose
But you won't remember this time
Your tired flight is almost over

And still your heart believes
You should have lied to me
Now my blood has run
Knew this day would come

Leave me to my own devices
I'll rot
