Track Name: Origami
I make a fold and
then I unfold it I
make a fold and
then turn it over the edge
I make a song and
then I unsong it I
make a song and
try to unfold it with care
I'm afraid to ruin all my calculations
and have it be
absolutely assymetrical
Could it still be beautiful with imperfections?
if it's honestly
vulnerable...
I get in a rhythm
then I just complicate it
I make a rhythm
just to indulge myself in it
Get in a rhythm
stop trying to make a statement
seriously, get in a rhythm!
try not to break it this time
focus, focus, focus, focus...
I'm afraid to sabotage my preparation
and have it be
a pathetic waste of my time
Am i still an artist if my songs are shapeless?
if I'm honestly,
honestly,
honestly vulnerable...
Track Name: Angel Fish
Angel fish,
how've you been doing?
Are you still chasing the light?
I'm fine and my music is blooming
but I promised myself not to write...
How is the sun in Virginia?
Did the cicadas come out?
I'm fine and I've never felt fuller
stringing the sounds from my mouth.
I don't look about my feet for
lilies in the concrete
I hum and drum when I can't sleep 'cause
music makes me happy
I don't believe in God
and you don't believe in people
I want to die of love
you want the church and steeple
Is there such thing as belonging?
Probably not where I've been
maybe we're set for another summer
where gestures are seamless like dreams in your stream.
But I don't believe in God
and you don't believe in people
I want to die of love
you want the church and steeple
I don't believe in God
and you don't believe in people
Track Name: Ginger
Burning on the bed
so incandescent and transparent
oh ginger, like fire

seize the innocence
and toss it away
oh ginger, I know the pain
of thinking you understand it all

flat on the wooden floor
your mandolin roars
and I will never know why
you keep throwing porcupine bombs

Ginger nine
we have reached a stalemate
the pressure and the pain
they tick tick tick like a bomb in your chest

Ginger, why
I swear I did all of my best
I swear I did

flat on the wooden floor
It's hard to get up
the sounds and the colors are messing us up
so organically
losing complicity
falling all out of touch

we're falling out of touch
Track Name: Labyrinth
Like a bird
dives against the corner of a room
again and again

like a fish
bangs against the corner of a tank
I destroy myself

Freedom is out there somewhere
if I could only find the window
freedom is out there somewhere
if I could only find the window

Like a wave
breaks against an all-envolving dam
I am
something other than myself

and freedom is in here somewhere
if I could only find the window
freedom is in here somewhere
if I could only find the window

the labyrinth inside
is the labyrinth outside
is the labyrinth inside
is the labyrinth outside
is the labyrinth inside
is the labyrinth outside...
Track Name: Sober
Spinning star
we were speaking in circles
cigarette after cigarette
we spun the signs

you were blue
like the earth on your shoulder
you looked sadder and older
than the crumbling view

I don't have the sense to walk away
I just want to see you sober

you withdrew
into violent reactions
I can't take the actions
to get through to you

and I knew
you were desperate and tired
and I felt like a coward
for humoring you

I don't have the sense to walk away
I just want to see you sober
sober
Track Name: Ariel
Round at the edge of my first life
I dreamt labyrinths
Argentinean dragons
fire from behind a screen

Round at the edge of my first life
I can see the sea, I seize the sea
like a wave of colors rising
over me

Aluminum and karma dungeon
urban herb and sinking sand
may I bathe inside your ocean?
Ariel, your current calls my caution to cave in

Yeah you know I've been breaking my body
to bend my intentions
like day of the dead
you revived my spirit
in your bed
I thought that I had lost the connection

Find you when I find myself
found you now
find you when I find myself
found you now

Yeah you know I've been breaking so badly
to change my preceptions
I take the blame
but I can't take the feeling ever again
do you understand where I'm coming from?

Aluminum and karma dungeon
urban herb and sinking sand
may I bathe inside your ocean?

Ariel

You're in the air and real to my skin
Track Name: Stardust
Someday the sun will explode
I think so it will be
and all the tiny bits of art and books and buildings
will all turn soft and meaningless and free

Someday the sun will explode
and every name and claim to fame will disappear
when all the tiny bits of love and truth and science
will merge in one and become
indistinguishable from each other

Stardust to consciousness
how come I am an atheist and broken hearted?
stardust to consciousness
how could love it not exist back when eternity started

if I hold it all in the palm of my hand
If I hold it all...

Someday the sun will explode
and every heart will burst in synchronicity
when I get sad and lost and mad and nihilistic
I'll think that I'm a dream within a dream

Stardust to consciousness
how come I am an atheist and broken hearted?
stardust to consciousness
how could love it not exist back when eternity started

if I hold it all in the palm of my hand
If I hold it al in the palm of my hand
If I hold it al in the palm of my hand
well, if I hold it all...
