Track Name: Mind_off
Here we are again
Evaporating
Eyes fed eyes fed skin
Tell me what is not given
Eyes that know the end
See the flora is winning
Eyes that know the end
Know it’s just the beginning

Its just the beginning
Its just the beginning
Its just the beginning
And we’re going with it

In the scene of our stark skeletons
We still rise through the slack and the hustling
Doesn’t mean that we’ve done anything
Doesn’t mean that we’ve really changed anything
In the way that each day has its themes
In the way that each age has its memes
Something new will take over our dreams
Just as soon as our heads turn crystalline

Its just the beginning
Its just the beginning
Its just the beginning
And we’re going with it
Track Name: Windexx'd
Sometimes I strive to hear my name with fresh ears
Sometimes I feel I can get a clean perspective
Sometimes I try to see my face with fresh eyes
I try to at least agree with my own reflection

I prefer to
Ask these questions
Though it’s exhausting
I realize
I can’t escape
This introspection
I must shake things up
Windex my eyes

I abhor my the daily tasks
In my life, routines don’t last
Everyday, I find it hard
To give out the same business card

Sometimes I strive to hear my name with fresh ears
Sometimes I feel I can get a clean perspective
Sometimes I try to see my face with fresh eyes
I try to at least agree with my own reflection
Track Name: Prism
How we exist
Thrown into this
Without a warning
Who would have thought
We’ve never fought
Or thought of leaving
A hologram
A silver ray
A nest a glowing
The only kind to spike the heart
The inner knowing
~
I’m offering
A humble gift
I will not hurt you
This Athame
These spoken words
A spell of virtue
Will you accept
Me in the storm
To warm this altar
The prism of
Uncanny love
That does not falter
~
If you want to
We could work together
If we don’t, well then we’ll never know
With good weather
We could stay together
Ride this bitch as far as she will go

When I met you it seemed that you
Had never been touched
When you met me you though that I
Had seem too much
You had a way about you
Pure indoors and wicked outside
I showed you to the garden
Now its your turn to be the guide
//
All the effort that you’ve ever made times 10
Returned to you
All the kindness that you’ve ever showed to anyone
Will pull you through
Standing in the rain
You sanctify your body element
Never looking back you gather everything
That’s relevant
Track Name: Little Ghost
There there she goes
She’s spinning again
Hey what do you know
She’s got all these new friends
As they come as they go
No one can deny
Theres a riddle we covet
In the blue of her eyes

There there she goes
Shes at it again
Lighting up breaking down
Going on about the end
As it comes as it goes
She laughs and cries
And I stay with the sadness
In the blue of her eyes

Breathe in your body
Although you constantly fight it
It constantly wins
Its time to surrender
Remember the girl that you were
And for this fight
You must put down your weapons
Beneath all your cleverness
Remember and inhabit yourself
And don’t you dare think about giving up now
Before you have asked for help

This is the price
For leaving your trust on the shelf
Seems like I know you
Better than you know yourself
Your paradise
Does not exist in this place
The day that you’ll find it
Is the day that you’ll conjure
A deeper grace

Those blue eyes that pale face
Pretending to hear me
I wrote it down just in case
You might decide to see
Because I love your Magic
More than I loath your mentality
But some day it may be too much
And I’ll need to do what’s right for me
Track Name: Omens
An Samhradh, an Fhomhair,
An Geimhreadh, an tEarrach
Cuimhnigh i gconai
Damhsa Cailleach

Last time I was here
Wearing plastic bag as a shield
Sheltered by an ancient stone
Much larger than the cross in the field

An Samhradh, an Fhomhair,
An Geimhreadh, an tEarrach
Cuimhnigh i gconai
Damhsa Cailleach

A million years of ashes spring to life
We have reached the moment of the turning of the tides
Hidden in a world underground
An orphan now is daughter to a mother she has found

Inside a vision
Untouched by bitterness
A torch in the darkness
The only thing I trust
A switch, I was jolted
Electrified the earth
The current crept in sideways
And let me know my worth
A rock in the ocean
A wet and soggy mire
Preserved in a capsule
And purified by fire
To stop to rewind
Slow motion kind of day
Not new not changing
And Nothing went away
The rock the ocean
Unreal state of grace
Perceived the motion
Of something lost in space
Track Name: Hungers
Written on my palms
A hidden riddle
It’s all a riddle really
I’m a girl who’ll never know it all
With my hands I built
A little city
An endless project is the only thing
That makes me feel natural
~
These habits formed before I knew my name
I spoke my first words
These habits tell me when
To heed the call
These hungers are the last ones at my parties
They never leave me, no
These hungers are the reason for this all
~
Wonder if I’ll ever make it simple
Be glad to loose control
Wonder if I’ll ever loose control
If one day I woke up with no filters
If I just said what’s in my head
I wonder if you still would think I’m cool
~chorus~
Everybody says don’t sweat the small stuff
That it will kill me quick
So I sweat all the biggest things I know
Is it such a crime, to want the big fish
If I can live with less
Without this hunger I would never grow
~chorus~
These habits….
Track Name: Doomdome
The end is near
Closer than you think
Life as we know
Teeters on the brink

Dare to read the news
Better run for higher ground
Or run for president
Cuz its RIP underground

Stars fallen from a blackened sky
Let the light pierce through your eyes
Borrowed from a time we cared
Wolves that fear a mother mare

The end is near
Closer than you think
Life as we know
Teeters on the brink

Stars fallen from a blackened sky
Let the light pierce through your eyes
Borrowed from a time we cared
Wolves that fear a mother mare
Track Name: Cardiac Blossom
Moon and Stars
My Sun

Cardiac Blossom
Reflecting White
High as the Cosmos
And just as Bright
Track Name: Iona
On Isle Iona lives a girl
She quenched the thirst of the prince of the world

Holy Water Holy Water

Thick in the mist of green Dun I
Pearls ascend from well to sky

Holy Water Her Holy Water

She flew into the in the veil
As the ships set sail with their inquisition
And now, just as they’ve feared, she is not leaving
Behind the veil, the girl is still breathing in…

Holy Water Her Holy Water

On Isle Iona
Her body rests
Un-weathered by times long conquest
Severed from sight in the remains
Of the holy well of the witches reign
