Track Name: Lights
AVOID THEM
BUT DON’T TURN YOUR FACE AWAY
ALL WAR TRIBES
AND NO ONE CAN HEAL US
GOD OF FEAR
LIKE A DARKENED MIRROR
GOD OF LOVE
PRAISE THE SONS AND THE SONS THEY LOVE

WE FOUND A NEW SUN BURIED IN THE GROUND
WE FOUND A NEW SUN AND GAVE LIGHT TO EVERYONE

PUREST LOVE
IN THE LENS OF GOD’S EYE
IS TRAMPLED
IS TRAMPLED BY…
ENEMIES
OF EMPATHY AND LOVE
NO ARMOR
NO FUTURE FOR YOUR CHURCH OF LIES

MIRRORS ARE CRACKED BY OUR HEARTS
THE DOGS OF LOVE HAVE DUG UP A NEW SUN
TIME STAND STILL TO HEAL OUR LIVES
THE DOGS OF HATE HAVE DUG UP A NEW SUN
THE SON OF MAN, A SONG OF LIFE
BROUGHT THE LIGHT AND GAVE IT TO EVERYONE
Track Name: Pre-Extinction Behavior Patterns
A CONVERSATION THAT ENDS ALL QUESTIONS
A SPECIES AT THE END OF ITS LIFE
EARTH LINKS FADING
RADIO WAVES
CARRY VOICES FROM FUTURE GRAVES

BEHAVIOR
TOMORROWS DREAMS HAVE TAKEN THEIR OWN LIFE
PATTERNS MATCH OUR BURIED SONGS, UNCOVERED WRONGS
LIKE DEMONS SLEEPING

PREMONITION IN THE EYES OF CHILDREN
PREMONITION IN YOUR LOVER'S VOICE
AND TREMBLING BREATH
THE SLOW RHYTHM OF OUR...

BEHAVIOR
TOMORROWS DREAMS HAVE TAKEN THEIR OWN LIFE
PATTERNS MATCH OUR BURIED SONGS, UNCOVERED WRONGS
LIKE DEMONS SLEEPING

DEMONS WAKING

BEHAVIOR
TOMORROWS DREAMS HAVE TAKEN THEIR OWN LIFE
PATTERNS MATCH OUR BURIED SONGS, UNCOVERED WRONGS
LIKE DEMONS SLEEPING

RHYTHM ZERO
Track Name: Salt Wife
RISE
AND TAKE MY BONES FROM THE SAND
YOU FOLLOWED THEM
AND WERE DRAGGED DOWN TO THE DEPTHS
YOU WILL RISE
LIKE WORMS IN THE RAIN
YOU WILL RISE
LIKE THE AIR IN THEIR LUNGS

BREATH IN
BREATH OUT
WATCHED THE STARS
AS THEY BURNED OUT
SAW A SHIP
THE OTHER DAY
AND WATCHED THROUGH TEARS
AS IT SAILED AWAY

WHEN WILL YOU RISE
AND TAKE MY BONES FROM THE SAND
YOU FOLLOWED THEM
AND WERE DRAGGED DOWN TO THE DEPTHS
YOU WILL RISE
LIKE EELS FROM HER EYES
YOU WILL RISE
LIKE THE AIR IN THEIR LUNGS

BREATH IN
BREATH OUT
WATCHED THE STARS AS THEY BURNED OUT
SAW YOUR FACE THE OTHER DAY
WHILE SEA BIRDS TORE MY EYES AWAY… AND SANG
THE SWEETEST SONG
THEY SANG THE SWEETEST SONG, YOUR NAME

COME SELKIE, WIPE THAT GRIN FROM YOUR FACE
COME SELKIE, WIPE THE BLOOD FROM YOUR TEETH
A TOWER SLEEPS WHERE NO HEART BEATS
A FATHER SEES HIS SON AND SCREAMS… YOUR NAME
RISE
YOU WILL RISE
COME SELKIE AND WEAR HER BLOODY SKIN
COME SELKIE AND WEAR HER SKIN LIKE A COAT
Track Name: Exit Vibrations
WE FOLLOWED YOUR FOOTSTEPS IN THE SAND
THEY LED TO A SETTING SUN
YOUR FACE IS IN THERMAL
A SMILE WRITTEN IN THE AIR
I SAW IT IN THE MIRROR

THE GROUND DROPS OUT BENEATH ME
THERE’S A COLD SPOT IN MY CHEST
YOU LEFT AN EMPTY CHAIR

ONE LESS PASSENGER
WE DROPPED YOU AT THE CURB
AND WATCHED YOU DISAPPEAR
ONE DAY WE WLL FIND YOU
ORBITING YOUR STAR
WE’LL LAUGH AGAIN

THE LIGHTS GO ON
THE LIGHTS GO OFF
BY THEMSELVES
A GHOST IS AN EMPTY CHAIR
THE LIGHTS GO OFF
THE LIGHTS GO OFF

YOU LEFT AN EMPTY CHAIR
Track Name: Another Door
WE SLEEP WHERE THE ANIMALS SLEEP
AWAY FROM THE PEOPLE
BENEATH A BLANKET OF STARS, NOT EYES
THEY ARE BURNING LIGHTS
IF I LEAVE
ILL LEAVE WHEN MY GOOD IS AS GOOD AS GONE
ILL LIFT MY MATTRESS FROM THE FLOOR
AND DRAG IT TO ANOTHER DOOR AS FREE AS I CAME

THERE WILL ALWAYS BE
THERE WILL ALWAYS ALWAYS BE
THERE WILL ALWAYS OTHER HANDS
TO CARRY YOUR HEART HOME

WE BUILT A HOME FOR A LIVES IN A MARSH THAT IS NIGHT AND DREAM
YOU BROUGHT
A BIRD IN YOUR HANDS, IT IS DEAD AS IT IS BLACK
A DEAD STORK, IT IS BLACK, I CAN’T SEE YOUR FACE
I CANT HEAR YOUR NAME
OR BREATH THE AIR BETWEEN US

NEVER FOUGHT TO KEEP THEM
THEY NEVER FOUGHT TO KEEP ME THERE
I NEVER BROUGHT YOUR HEART HOME
SO NOW IM FREE TO ROAM
NOW THAT I WANDER
SOMETIMES I WONDER
IF I EVER HAD A DAUGHTER
WOULD SHE LOOK LIKE YOU

AND WOULD YOU LOOK FOR ME
OR ANOTHER MAN
THERE WILL ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS
THERE WILL ALWAYS BE OTHER HANDS
TO CARRY YOUR HEART HOME
