The Brightest Stars talk is easy when you're looking towards the morning the brightest stars are set in the bleakest nights old suns long burned through ghostly choirs sing their tune whispering songs set deep in the darkest nights radiate a woman walks alone long black hair and eyes of stone whispering songs set deep in the darkest nights radiate the brightest stars are set in the bleakest nights the brightest stars are set in the bleakest nights radiate

Host in the beginning no borders or boundaries set just the beauty of nothing, nowhere the dirt on the road the rare summer rain the heavy electric air the outside the golden shell run child run run run child run free desire, bringing you down to your knees desire, racing your heart erasing all rational thought what you need you can't get still you stay after it walk a casual route through the hissing snake-pit you can't hold back you can't control run child run run run child run free desire, bringing your face to the ground desire, burns in your heart burning your whole body through desire you can't hold back run child run run run child run free

Pulse the picture on the dashboard pulling you on every season and time zone depth and direction you keep that old engine burning until you run out of road lay down on the dead rails; steel bones feel the spine of the monster, its distant pulse it’s just your imagination that’s taking its toll seeing things you don’t believe don’t panic now it’s natural yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah there’s nothing you can’t handle like a loaded gun although there’s many ways to do things to you there’s only one the ending will find you unless you find it first seeing things you don’t believe don’t panic now it’s natural you will feel you’re not yourself don’t panic now it’s natural yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

Bury Your Heart stop at nothing watch it all fly by in a blur oh black bird blue sky red earth where did you bury your heart? break the silence follow the song sailing on the wind oh white plume grey wolf yellow tomb where did you bury your heart? drive the vultures away from the river as pure as prayer oh jade stone pink moon silver sun where did you bury your heart? where did you bury your heart? where did you bury your heart? where did you bury your heart? stop at nothing watch it all fly by in a blur oh black bird blue sky red earth where did you bury your heart?

Loom indian summer keeps shoving september aside every evening the circling birds just can’t seem to decide smoke from the factories, freeways and cigarettes climb like the thread on a loom weaving wool with the clouds in the sky when i look into your eyes is when i fall into paradise wrecking ball crushing through everything left in its path muscle memory melodies living in bricks and stained glass shattered and wasted on too-good-to-be-true returns so we sleepwalk the great halls where all of our memories burn when i look into your eyes is when i fall into paradise when i hear your songbird voice is when I’m freed from all the other noise when i look into your eyes is when i fall into paradise when i hear your songbird voice is when i’m freed from all the other noise

Breathe only in dreams the untenable bliss of timelessness only in love the immeasurable the weight of it all you better move you better go don’t let your heart be unsure remember to breathe frozen in time where the radiant youth meets the beautiful truth you better move you better go don’t let your heart be unsure you better run you better ride don’t let your heart ask you why remember to breathe only in dreams where the mystics undress where the animals speak where the infinite jest goes blank in a blink where the morning’s a moonrise you better run you better ride don’t let your heart ask you why you better work you better will don’t let your heart be still remember to breathe

Transference when i wake up i wake up i wake up i’ll see your face see your face your sweet face birds of prey fly overhead above the earth above the sky beyond the stars inside my mind a crushing flood of chemicals peaks and valleys flatten out a new world will wait a world will wait a world will wait when i wake up i wake up i wake up

Blood Moon i’ve been keeping a secret so long, so close another skin on my body layered over i've been wearing a silence you could see right through the bloom of misdirection for something true listen closely listen well in the morning there's no telling what we'll remember we'll believe in the moment there's no history i've been keeping a record collecting words like a fruit that has fallen in the orchard how much will you carry on your own how long will you walk this road alone listen closely listen well in the morning there's no telling what we'll remember we'll believe in the moment there's no history how much will you carry on your own how long will you walk this road alone listen closely listen well in the morning there's no telling what we'll remember we'll believe in the moment there's no history

Cold Windows stuttering surgeon’s scalpel sweeps aside the shaking careful cold windows anesthetic shotgun fever road kill bandwidth it's all the same it's all the same it's all the same it's all the same dissected clover crossroads vacant truck stop ringing payphones what you want is the end of want what you want is the end of want i don't need no, I don't need no, I don’t need no, I don’t need what you want is the end of want it's all the same it's all the same it's all the same it's all the same

Planet now i'm just a stone in the graveyard the bodies can trust a wrought-iron fence in the front yard protecting the dust once I moved among them like waterfalls things were much different without you no shorelines to draw there were no means to measure the weight of it all i could count forever in this great abyss oh and when oh when you arrived you moved through so many lives now i’m just a silent observer; a wall that came down i recall when I was a planet for i am, but a stone now i’m begging you please to forget me and leave me alone time refigures all error and injury atones once we flowed together like waterfalls oh and when oh when you arrived you moved through so many lives now I’m just the quiet companion of shadow and smoke i recall when i was a planet for i am, now just a stone

Vainglory we were broke and bootleg two of a kind so happy to see the sunrise we wandered through the wilderness of what we thought we knew would you run would you run away with me? we were young and faded we lost track of the time revolution had risen kingdoms decried we turned down an empty road direction now unknown would you run would you run away with me? hey la la, hey la la la la wake up see the sunrise we lost track of the time if nothing's real nothing’s standing in our way would you run, would you run away? would you run, would you run away? would you run away with me?

radiate/dissolve wait, wait a few minutes more there’s so much left to say there's no rush, no hands to push back a minute lasts a hundred years sing your whispering songs the brightest star will radiate go, deeply and completely we'll forget the way we came go, beyond the horizon become the setting sun radiate awake to desert rain cooling off the heat of day dissolve radiate go, deeply and completely become the rising sun
