Track Name: Heart on Fire
I'm tired of jumping through hoops
i'm eyeing windows to another time
when swipes were handshakes
and touch was with another
your stomach was a flutter
my stomach was a flutter

is there anyway back
on the ahead?
is there any on track
in the days ahead?
and it slips when you grab it
it's a death fascination
in the retina glow my heart's on fire
my heart's on fire

I'm tired of waiting
for light speed to be visible
to bring back the feeling
of somewhere in between two extremes
where every dance wasn't the last
and every night wasn't the time of our lives

is there anyway back
on the ahead?
is there any on track
in the days ahead?
and it slips when you grab it
it's a death fascination
in the retina glow my heart's on fire
my heart's on fire

so let's just get together
there's no difference than before...
Track Name: Time Machine (single version)
Words escape without lips speaking
and the cold front breaks
with the summer sunshine leaking
but I can't build myself a time machine to stop the thing, i can't stop the thing.

I'm not the thought, I thought before
and I'm the standard form of metaphor
but I can't build myself a time machine
to save the thing, I can't save a thing

I had to see what was underneath
before I left it alone
to witness the bored kids
who sung the insolent songs
and we can't build a simple time machine
we can't build a simple time machine

words escape while your heart's still reeling
and the clouds won't break
with the oil we've been stealing
we're both looking for a brand new scene
of handshakes and time machines
we're both looking for a brand new scene
of handshakes and time machines

I can't build myself a time machine to stop the thing I can't stop the thing
I can't build myself a time machine to save the thing I can't save a thing...
Track Name: Don't Explore Your Options
in the frame of the picture
on the feild all day
crawling through the gutters
keeping calm as a strategic play
they are not the only ones in the trenches
and you are not allowed to give up this way


i need your rub
i need your state
i need your reactions

i need your rub
i need your state
i need your lines
in 12 dimensions

I might not survive
and through two slits we are broken
and reunited from the other side
and don't worry
we are not the only ones
we are not the only ones
they are just the state of large mass motion

i need your rub
i need your state
i need your reactions

i need your rub
i need your state
i need your lines
in 12 dimensions

we are not the only ones
we are not the only ones
they are just the state of large mass motion
Track Name: Dark Star (2015)
terrorized on a tuesday morning
again i've missed the steps
i was never anywhere close to what the intel said

it's too big a picture to see the finer lines,
the ones that make one a target in iron sights

I didn't see anything thing that I was trained to see
it had everything to do
every little thing to do with me...

instant headache in the center of the forehead
it's not pain, it's embarrassment, which is pain
take off my glasses rub my forehead rub out the embarrassment
forget the future, the future is now

I didn't see anything thing that I was trained to see
it had everything to do
every little thing to do with me...

and maybe i'm the point of a microscopic joke, a cosmic low
a dark star's glow...
Track Name: The Business of the End
there's nothing in the end
there's nothing in the end
and now...

i'm chasing a cheetah down a land fill
and we both drown before the dawn
we're just sick of all the needing
and the things are all strewn out on the lawn
and now...

i'm desperate into the darkness
i couldn't cave if i wanted to
it got lodged between the mantles and i'm too old to get it out
get it out

and there's nothing in the end...

why are you asking?
why are you looking?
what business do you have even trying?
