Inversion 02:38
Distant populations going nowhere So far away from us, you wouldn’t know where Opposite of you, opposite of me Generations leveled and taken by the sea Inversion 10 thousand saints who haven’t got a chance Invisible people in a sacred expanse What is it with you? What is it with me? Distant populations you never even see Out of sight, out of mind Willingly blind Inversion So far away from us
2.
On a tight line, far away blind Take a look closer Like we’re supposed to be Oh why? No lie, pure reason She doesn’t have two faces to show the world It’s all done with mirrors To see Oh why? No lie, pure reason
3.
Colossus 03:18
You’re physical Fiends for bones to break Needs for action Violence to fate Means nothing to you Who takes the fall Because there’s no consequence It’s immaterial A new life We’re never meant to feel completed As long as we’re here It doesn’t matter what for I’m still on your side We’re so affectionate Seen on the surface Drawn to the depths of it Means nothing to you Who takes the fall In this place of tension Always so rational It’s immaterial We’re never meant to feel completed As long as we’re here It doesn’t matter what for
4.
Brushed 03:35
You say return from where you came from What if there’s nothing left there for me now? Looking for someone to assign Blame me for anything Somethings wrong, look for symmetry So fucked up, calling back to me Now how could I keep my promise to return? 100 years just isn’t enough time Oh how I wanted to tell you Oh how I wanted to be there When you say Somethings wrong, look for symmetry So far gone, calling back to me Mind and matter, self and other Brushed
5.
Katakana 02:35
It feels like there’s no return In these desperate times Where no one makes up their minds Some loves fall right through Years ago when my mind was full Of possible distraction Of sidewalk satisfaction Reclaim a fate you need to follow Why’d you run? There’s no return so what can you do? Some loves fall right through Reclaim a fate you need to follow
6.
There is no reason for this collision Apologies rain all season, forever I love you now more than I ever did When it rains I can’t change your mind True worlds bring As lights fill up the sky You better get used to it Wishing you were here for this decision I don’t want to be wrong I don’t want to mislead Stations of our present You’re more than I’ll ever need Can’t explain why you change your mind And it rains True worlds bring As lights fill up the sky You better get used to it It takes its own shape
7.
Phase 90 03:34
Trying to finish the book I was reading Put it down for too long Got distracted by other things Forgot the characters and their names How the plot lines fade Echolocation let’s meet at the station Like we did a thousand times before It’s not like I’m counting Sometimes it’s better just to keep on traveling How the plot lines fade Trying to finish the book I was reading Hope I don’t have to start from the beginning Sometimes it’s better just to keep on traveling Than to arrive
8.
Under the weight How you make me feel Recognized in new disguises I need more time to deal Between imagined and real Waves in silence Whatever you are thinking Save the violins Whatever you are dreaming Falling away Don’t let appearances fool you No logical harm done With only one to rule you Life but how to live it Waves in silence Whatever you are thinking Save the violins Whatever you are feeling Life but how to live it Safe from a distance Safe for an instant

EMDR 02:59
Symptoms of your hands in glove Worn out nightly stars shine brightly Flips your wig she sold out big In the right time right place I remember when we were 17 There was nothing we wouldn’t dare Experience your luxury Close to my heart swimming up stream I see you pass by Hello and goodbye In the right place, right time I remember when we were 17 There was nothing we wouldn’t dare Experience your luxury Close to my heart up stream See you pass by hello Meet you in the shallows Worn out nightly
11.
Rodan 03:23
Thinking to myself I am thinking Following a line Parachuting out in time I see you there Rodan People noticing each other I see it happen very often Living just around the corner Share the same existence Doesn’t make a difference Deconstructed, isolated Thinking to myself I am thinking Hanging by a thread Wonder what she hasn’t said I see you there Now I see how it works
