Track Name: GOLD
For every season, a cover color,
to categorize, so that I won't forget
my inner reflections, she listens to me,
but only for a moment, then looks right through me
you got a brother, sister, Goldilocks?
step into my orgone box, you're always
looking for the compromise,
the middle ground to advertise,
twenty minutes, call the cops,
step into my orgone box,
everyone's got a story,
let's hope I don't forget mine

every time I hear that song it flashes to me images of gold
still I'm waiting for that song I'll write it, send it off and then I'm gold
give me all your love and then I'll write about it, mark it up it's gold
feeling all my feelings like you put me in a daze, I'm seeing gold

I sent a message, she didn't get it,
she's busy making amends to break me down,
I have a story, I thought I told you,
it's slipping my mind, I'll have to go take it back
I'm making angles with my other arm,
sweating, pulling off the charm, I'm always
reaching, never got my grasp,
I never plan to
trying to write about the last few months
gives me headaches, tears me up,
everyone's got a story,
I don't know mine

every time I hear that song it flashes to me images of gold
still I'm waiting for that song I'll write it, send it off and then I'm gold
give me all your love and then I'll write about it, mark it up it's gold
feeling all my feelings like you put me in a daze, I'm seeing gold

every time I hear that song,
still I'm waiting for that song,
every time I hear that song,
still I'm waiting for that song,
every time I hear that song,
every time I hear that song,
every time I hear that song,
still I'm waiting for that song
Track Name: Nebulous
Left my keys by the door,
forgettable, au revior
introspective reverence,
is only useful in the past tense
if I knew what to do,
I doubt that I'd know how to do it
and if I knew what to stand,
I doubt that I could ever endure it

oh, it's like face, to the face, of a similar race,
with a courtesy call from the marbled glass ball,
and I can't, for myself or my friends, reprimand,
all the planetary, ah

ripping out by the spine,
these pages of paradigm,
introspective dissonance,
it haunts me all the way from my past tense,
if I knew what to do,
I doubt that I'd know how to do it
and if I knew what to stand,
I doubt that I could ever endure it

oh, it's like face, to the face, of a similar race,
with a courtesy call from the marbled glass ball,
and I can't, for myself or my friends, reprimand,
all the planetary, ah
Track Name: Headweights
they are what you are, when you look back and see,
when you lose hold of scale reveals how far,
I know that it happened to me, more or less it's
just a fault in sight, if you can't picture that
then you won't try and question in new light
what you are looking at, you'll find you can see

so far, on headweights, it's too much
you can see, so far, on headweights, it's too much
you can see, so far, on headweights, it's too much
you can see, so far

same as al-
same as al-
same as al-
same as always
you can keep trying, they will be falling,
you will be shaking, overwhelmed by the
questions of self-worth, if you're not good enough,
then why try to keep reaching for rebirth?
just admit that it's tough, you'll find you can see

so far, on headweights, it's too much
you can see, so far, on headweights, it's too much
you can see, so far, on headweights, it's too much
you can see, so far
Track Name: Take it Off
If your arm gets caught up, cut it off, take it off,
your psyche, defend it, don't let him control it,
when it comes, it hits hard, blind-sided, I'd like to know
a-a-all know it
a-a-all know it
a-a-a-a-a-all know it
a-a-a-a-a-all

If your skin confines you, take it off, trade it off,
faded out of vision, can't retrieve what's missing,
if you let your aim drift, it's your fault, you should have known
a-a-all known it
a-a-all known it
a-a-a-a-a-all known it
a-a-a-a-a-all

And if it feels like it's been dragged out from under you,
you've lost it all, where did it go? it left so soon,
because you just refused to

take it, take it
take it, take it
take it, take it
take it, take it off
Track Name: Villa
Bleakest villa in electric blue and a
sun-parched lawn with a heart of palm,
the sunrise twice each day,
the window at the west faces the bay

Bleakest villa in electric blue and the
patio tiles are stripped away,
sand with silver plume,
covering the dune, in wake of noon,
I've been wilting away at the bay

It's such a shame to settle down because
I wrought my passion for the future tense,
the present that once was an impedance,
is out of mind on the balcony over the bay

This isn't what I thought it would be,
at least now I can find the time to
make up for sleepless nights and
I'll drift off tonight
