Track Name: Carnival
The party's just begun
And look at what I've won
Two tickets to the fair
If only I would share
I win the biggest prize
And go on all the rides
Some twist and spin around
And some go upside down

Too short to cop a feel
Or ride the Ferris wheel
So go stand against the wall
Us other kids are tall
I think you've missed some fun
The carny's almost done
I laugh and see you cry
It's only in July

Tea Cup Ride
Close My Eyes
Tea Cup Ride
Track Name: Drool
They're watching you through
Black-eyed and bruised clouds
Gold-haloed crowned hounds
It's raining from their mouths
The world's so small doll
And filled with walls
No where to run
When you can smell hell
You know our day is done

Angels watching
You make them drool
They will eat you
Make the sun shine

They fish with fine line
They fish with silver thread
From floating sheep asleep
Drifting overhead
Feel the mist kiss
Soft insist
Upon your cheek
And hear their haunting howl
You'll never feel so bleak

Angels watching
You make them drool
They will eat you
Make the sun shine

Make the sun shine
Make the sun

I think this storm will pass
The rain it never lasts
Thunder like canyon-tones
They're only hunger groans

Angels watching
You make them drool
They will eat you
Make the sun shine

Make the sun shine (3x)
Make the sun
Track Name: Drifting
Toxic fires melting
My forest of knives
Cold hail is pelting and
Smoke fills the skies
Hungry dogs are stalking
These lost chattering bones
Under covers walking
My heartbeat skipping stones

(chorus)
Keep your eyes closed
They're not helping
In darkness you'll find
A true blessing

Plague birds crowding, laughing
Smells like burning hair
This damp fear's not passing
Wear my nightmare

(chorus)

Keep your eyes closed
Keep your eyes closed
In darkness you'll find
A true blessing
Track Name: Diminished
You're saying something
Lots of angst in your tone
Okay you've convinced me
Strong enough on your own

I can't help but smile
At the thought of you still
Your time on this planet
Is a test of god's will

Come down Come down

Get over it
You should get over it
Try something else
You should

You've got it figured out
You've made that all too clear
I'll give you some advice
If you'll shut up to hear

Come down Come down

Get over it
You should get over it
Try something else
You should try something else
Get over it
You should get over it
Try something else
You should
Track Name: Marble
Marble heroes stand along the margin world
Atop pillowed sand they wait but no wave stirred

I'll wait (I'll wait)
I'll wait

Dusts of broken friends are carried on the breeze
Sculpting those left waiting for a wave to seize

(pre chorus)
I'll wait (I'll wait)
I'll wait

(chorus)
I know she's not all mine
But I can't let myself reside to sit

Melted mirror lies before us
Reflecting our tragic busts

(pre chorus)
(chorus)
Track Name: Within Reach
Ocean blue
Purest hue
Seize the day
The horizon sun
Is frozen
An arm's length away
And beckons me to sail
I know I cannot fail
I will squeeze the day

You love when I give my best
Though it won't be enough
Then I crawl back to my nest
Soon as the road gets rough
'Cause it won't be enough

Second sun
Brings new light
To this day
Though I toiled all night
To your delight
You rose the other way
But I won't wait to fail
Now the moon will guide my sail
Sunshine holds no sway
Track Name: Skins
Blue melting eyes and
Velvet thighs silky wet
Caving in

Threading through
Sews us up new
And fits just right
Just for tonight

(chorus)
Skin deep beauty
Peels off so easy
Skin deep beauty
Beneath's nothing

Slips
Skins as one unzips
All's undone
Sweat drips
It was fun

More was less
When we undressed
But all that's left
Is emptiness

(Chorus)

So Beautiful (2x)

Don't cry
It was not a lie
Even as
We say goodbye
Track Name: Full
Too much for me
Too much for me
I'll see you at the end of this
Too much for me

Good bye with style
Good bye with style
I'll bet you wish you'd come with me
Good bye with style
Track Name: Lost Token
Take a pen and pad
And listen closely
People tend to say it helps
To know where you're going

You're going
Nowhere fast
Forget the breaks
And hit the gas

Somewhere ain't
For you my dear
(yeah)
You're a mess
Smoke a blunt

You're going
Nowhere fast
Forget the breaks
And hit the gas
Track Name: It's Not Life
Always know
It's not life

Bright lights
Flood my eyes
and crystalize
White noise
My poison's mating call
When the

(Chorus)
Ghoulish glow
It takes control
It makes life dull
It steals my soul

Pale Blue
Illumined fields
Pollute the real
Glory born
from stories
Never feels like
It's a lie
When the

(Chorus)

Soul (3x)
Track Name: Armilla
No one's here
This strange city
It all seems a lie

Plumbing grows
Not held by walls
Or floors
Just sky

(Pre Chorus)
Forest of
Copper love
Porcelain fruit
Dangles from above
Showers spray
Tubs fill too
And the girls
Hide from view

(Chorus)
From hanging baths
Echoing laughs
Where nymphets sigh
Wondering why

No one knows
When their appeared
The nymphs just spring
From faucets
To enjoy the waters
And sing

(pre chorus)
(chorus)
