Track Name: Myth
Harrowing acts and colossal facts
Pretend to be where we never were at
Schools of the thought of the crumbling
It's all we have from all these "kings"

Rolling this stone up the mountainside; hubris
On the decline there's time to think of all of the gods that I spat at
I regret nothing
(She's okay!)
I regret no things
(She's okay!)

Zeus, you're such a fool
I accept why I'm in the grass and you're in the air
Petty god, you're such a fool in all eyes
All things are humble

Always in the gaps of my mind
I'm content in a muted way
I don't know it
I don't know it

I don't know
(She's okay)
I don't know
I don't wanna know
(She's alright)
Petty god, how did you get so bored?
(She's alright)
I don't know
(She's alright)
I don't know it
(She's okay)
I don't know
I don't know

Rolling this stone up the mountainside; hubris
On the decline there's time to think of all the gods

Zeus, you're such a fool
I accept why I'm in the grass and you're in the air
Petty god, you're such a fool in all eyes
All things are humble

I always wondered where you were at
I always wondered where you were at
Zeus, I'm calling you out
Track Name: Tethered VOM
(Listen.)
Track Name: On & On Gravitons
Hideous men won't say anything until we get behind paper bags, ego-wide
Never knowing why
Hideous men won't say anything until they get behind paper bags, ego-wide
Never knowing why

Attenuating accents
Assaulting the cause
The drunks are lamenting like pillow-less beds
And you're on the other side of the party trying to save face
(You're on the other side)
Love, like lazy lions trying to make their own way
Demanding disaster, we've razed ourselves tall
Ugly men have paved the way

Hideous men won't say anything until they're hidden
They're all crying for your death!
Why don't you just do us the favor?!

We're just in the way of their masks, et al
We all fall
Track Name: Clouds' Flotilla
Bear hugs from un-bare skies
Cotton balls with all the squeeze
Bear hugs from bare bodies
Cotton balls with all the squeeze

You took on the role of foreman, gravitating towards feeling like a goddess
We took on the role of followers; a soft-minded menagerie
Track Name: Bossy Nova
Humor me and my expectations
I'm slowly falling through to your sanctions
(Here and now)

We don't jive

I don't know anything
At least I'm trying to vet my mind
This wasn't very major
I wrote it all down
At least I can say it happened to me
This wasn't very major
This wasn't very major

We were
We were Oregon
(Is this melodramatic enough?)
We were those mountains; great big dirt mounds
We were those pines
You're the worst (bummer, amiss, careless, dreadful, substandard, bottomed out, and awfully synthetic)

I was in close orbit around a thought
A thought that thought you weren't so bad
Clumsily, I fell into your atmosphere
I had a fiery entry that never stopped
Oh no

I don't know anything
At least I'm trying to vet my mind
This wasn't very major
I wrote nothing down
At least I can say it happened
How formative
This wasn't very major
This wasn't very major
Track Name: Nomenclature
(Listen.)
Track Name: Neurologica
I always thought there was an elementary motive behind a very quiet room
Maybe the fact that everywhere is the center of the universe is too much to know

I'm on a mission to find out what we need
I'm always gnawing at my sense of self

So much is lost here
I want an ending to today, where the moon would rise, and the Sun would go away
Oh gods, would you help me if I promise to be and bleed for the struggle?
For power?

I will not pay for everyone's vanity

All that I say is gone
All that I say is gone
And all that vanity
It disappears
Track Name: A Coalition With No Volition
I overheard you talking about me
"What a weak man..." you said to them gleefully
Loving everyone that I meet is not a weakness
Maybe your world view is just that awful
Have you ever heard the story of tortoise and the hare?
Well, look now
Track Name: Bella Grows Up
Relish in the occupying of careful disguises
Examining the ornamental causes

"I am the molecule that thinks it can move unseen and differently from the rest."
Ooh
Look how much she's grown up
Just enough to make a 'grown man' blush
Ooh

Coagulate that much further, until...
"This won't get our lives back."

Calling on four-leaf clovers
Superstition's got to work now
Wait for her to come in
"Empty Shell, would you please breathe me out?"

Bella, step inside
"Will this be jarring?"
Would you like me to lie?
Ooh

Love, it decreases then it ceases
"Send it to space and it freezes."
There is nothing left
"I always loved you into pieces."
Not enough to fight off your demons
There is nothing left

Everything's much easier when you say it's all a lie
Just look at Richard Eden
Oh, what a guy
This has become much bigger than us
It's a feast à la carte
Something of the multi-verse
Something of the gods
The gods

Love, it decreases then it ceases
"Send it to space and it freezes."
There is something left
Track Name: Centaur
Digging holes for our egos
The biggest homes for our egos
Endless self-pandering

I come from synapses firing constantly

(Impeded by the sky)
(Clouded by the mind)
(I came for the brightest colors inside)

Oh, I'm so high
What a ruse to get you out of this lose situation
Oh, we're so high
Oh my god
We've got to get out of here

Two wholesome steps for fighting the ego:
Clench your fists and thrust up
Wait for the sky to yield real blue
Or wait, do you see it?

And then we wait for the ignited Sun
I am no one but you are someone

Oh, I'm so high
What a ruse to get you out of this lose situation
Oh, we're so high
Oh my god
We've got to get out of here
Oh, we're all fucked up
We all fucked up
Here's your chance to live your life alive
Oh, we're all too high
All too high
We've got to get out there
Track Name: Nourishment Clouds
Push off the ground into the sky
Wait for comfort, like a sea breeze
And all those white clouds
With a backdrop of blue skies
And gravity's pulling hard on me; begging me to come down now

I'm afraid "I can't let you do that, Dave"
That's the tone she had when she spoke to me
She's holding me back
She's holding me back from all of space

Today I learned I'm not so conditioned
So float with me in this mildly vexing vacuum
She's starting her own coalition
But up here there's so much room

Knowledge is akin to Aloe Vera
Just apply it directly to the wound

I tried to seize the day, but I ended up seizing up
Oh Carl, tell me what I'd like to know
We are just cosmic babies, minus the growing up
Oh Carl, tell me what I'd like, to grow

And all the conversations will flow into each other
Ebb, toe to toe, fighting for the title of most intriguing
And then we show our make-believe teeth

I tried
Now I've gone under

Let's take a tour of the universe
Grab your Hitch-Hiker's Guide
Let's take a stroll in the universe
Grab your Hitch-Hiker's Guide
Let's a take a role in the universe; to be lost but never found
She's waking up with a fistful of knowledge
Maybe we can punch through
And then I realized that we are, all of us, gods
