Track Name: Bedroom Fall
I can not erase you, you are printed in my mind
A holographic image I am seeing in real time
Dancing in this space you really are sublime
Boy it’s quite alright, we can take our time

I can feel your heart and it is pulsing next to mine
Delicately holding you and closing both our eyes
A moment among others that is unique to our lives
I can say I love you and I mean it this time

Fall into my bedroom won’t you fall into my room…
Fall with you

All of my reflections seem to live their own lives
Taking on perception and it seeps back into mine
Tell me who I am and I will tell you who I love
Fall into my bedroom won’t you fall into my room…
Fall with you
Track Name: Soft Thing
Don’t know why I depend on…
Don’t know why I depend on you
You’re just a cowardly fool
Analyzing my every move
I don’t know why I fuck with you
Well, is this just a silly game?
Cause you keep getting in my way
You’re full of lies you’re in denial
But you still stay inside my mind

Ain’t it funny that -
I hate you so much right now

This is a song written for you
Regarding what you did
But I still let you in…

Lost highways I go
With a pit stop by the coast
All my euphoria
It is digging into my lungs
I can’t feel my toes

No reflection in the window
I feel better - I feel better
No reflection in the window…
Track Name: Crystal Growth
Colour of your mind…

Bend the light
Into the corner of my eye, and make it right
We can make it through over the hills and split in two
The heat it brings me back to the days of blue
Not a surprise I got nothing to remember
But I remember…

To my waterfall
I fall in november
To my spiral call the one I can’t remember
Dear god, mother, lover, brother, other
To my waterfall…

Sorry disciples
Barge into my room

ooHHHh myyy gawwwddd
something’s happening

We’re gonna break in two
Crystal in solitude
Crystal insolitude
We’re gonna break anew
In two…

To my waterfall
I fall in November

We’re gonna break we’re gonna break we’re gonna break in two

Going to break in two…
Track Name: To The Water (full)
I’ve said my peace to the waterfall…
Track Name: Sending Psalms
Silhouette it takes new shapes
It hovers over me now I can’t breathe
Single voice can you speak to me
Tell me all your philosophies and carry all my weight
Can you carry all my weight?

If I die more than three times
Is that enough for you to see the truth in eyes
The truth in these blue blue blue eyes

Calling all the ships to shore
Harbour me if love ignores
Sending letters, sending psalms

And when I die the hundredth time
Leave my name and fancy rhymes
Sending letters, sending psalms
With your letters and your psalms

Saviour will you join me
At the table with the other voices who were stalking me
They were stalking me
Pour your wine into the glass cup
You say ‘when’ and gently caress the tabletop
Leaves your mind at ease

If I die on the fifth of July
You tell them loving stories why
I just want them to know…

Calling all the ships to shore
Harbour me if love ignores
Sending letters, sending psalms

And when I die the hundredth time
Leave my name and fancy rhymes
Sending letters, sending psalms
With your letters and your psalms
Track Name: Catch Me I'm Falling (boring music)
Catch me I know I’m falling, I’m full of colours…
Track Name: Oceans, Cliffs & Green Hills
Save me from my lover, save me from you
Fight the anger, fight your will to lose
And away we go

Fuck it all and fuck myself
I feel it boil over me
Said love it hurts it hurts it hurts

Ocean, cliffs and green hills from afar
Tell me of all my selfish remarks
Windbreakers and boys with t-shirts off
I’ll be loving you
I’ve been loving you

Save me from my lover, save me from all this-
You

Save me from space, my existing faith
I call out your name but nothing’s the same so
I can’t control it - it’s almost over
Could get - control it
Could get - control…
Track Name: My Hormones
I get so tired, this house it is coming down
I get so horny, these days when you come around
And if I speak can you make my mouth bleed
I get so tired, this house it is coming down

I get so lonely, my body it aches for pain
And I’m so sorry, maybe I search for it some days

Don’t try to, my hormones, they don’t fuck with your games
I scream out, this one’s for drowning in disdain

Take all my desires, take them all and run
My wife and my kids, yeah it’s all for fun

Don’t try to, my hormones, they don’t fuck with your games
I scream out, this one’s for drowning in disdain
Track Name: Womxn Cry
To the left
To the right

I boo hoo hoo
I cry cry cry
Like boo hoo hoo

Sometimes I cry, cause my life depends on it
Oh I will cry, like my life depends on it
I cry cry cry
I boo hoo hoo
I cry cry cry
Like my life depends on it

Womxn cry

I will love you down
When your back is weary, I will love you down

Boo hoo hoo
Cry cry cry
Like boo hoo hoo

When your back is weary, I will love you down…
Track Name: Serene
Serene

These days in the den
Staring at your hand
But I can not pretend
That I am not a man
Cause these days it’s the -

Wash it away now
There you go again
Wash it away now
Watching every bend
I can't pretend now

Where do you think you’re going, boy?
That way leads to nowhere, boy
You should come to my place...
