Track Name: The Brightest Stars
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
Track Name: Host
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
Track Name: Pulse
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
Track Name: Bury Your Heart
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?
Track Name: Loom
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
Track Name: Breathe
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
Track Name: Transference
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
Track Name: Blood Moon
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
Track Name: Cold Windows
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
Track Name: Planet
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
Track Name: Vainglory
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?
Track Name: radiate/dissolve
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
