Nature Walk 05:32
Ferns and leave on vines Underneath dark blue skies Will hide us tonight And grasses over toes And our senses overloaded Oh yeah, it's all right And I'm hoping that you'd like this To end with a good-night kiss this time If you'd like So, don't ask me where we'll go All I know is we're here We should sit down in the grass With a tree against our backs and relax Take our time Fences pulled down low Won't stop us on our road to arrive Just in time We should leave our socks and shoes To wade out in the moonlit lake Clear our minds So, don't ask me where we'll go All I know is we're gone Then, now, forever So, don't ask me when we'll go All I know is we've locked ourselves Here, alone, in the closet With a ghost and a candle

C: Human you are, vegetable I am B: Just because you're thinking in terms of man C: My arms reach so high; you'll never understand just why B: I'm so content here, and I could never leave C: So you're okay now -- what about the rest of your life? B: I will not let you pull me from this cloud Maybe you should come down from your tree C: It all seems so strange: this human point of view B: I always get a headache closer to the ground C: Maybe elevation is your medication B: Maybe it would be better to finally come around But you could fall to the ground C: Hope for your kind is always running to you B: Interesting conundrum, but try and help me out C: I could light a fire underneath you to speed you up B: Time could burn to embers...I'd be lost and never found

As soon as I start to write it It will all disappear As soon as I forget about it It will all become so clear Now has she learned that time lies To your face about you If she's recall then the dry eye would run But she can't, so they won't There's hope in my head It's been thought left for dead And we'll see On her journey for her sanity She can't salvage one memory But there's something that remains As soon as I start to write it It will all disappear As soon as we make our next more They'll be there to erase us again On my journey for my sanity I can't salvage one memory But there's something that remains And how can you say this isn't vacation? On cold train see ourselves in daylight And all we need is room to breathe To re-find you and me On our journey for our sanity We can't salvage one memory But there's something That's been hidden Deep within Without...without you Out here we laugh, I know I know you As we make angels In the snow

Although it took some time to admit Nothing was getting any better Transmissions sent and lifetimes spent Time away from the wife and the kids Every night spent numbering the stars Pouring over star charts and radio waves All for nothing Transmitters and receivers shutting down Sending the boys back to their families Null and void and useless to us now: The info of a million hopeful seekers Giving up the search The chances are too slim Keep your eyes dead set upon the ground It must not exist Since intelligence hasn't answered us back Now, why do you think that is? Now all they'll find Is remnants of someone who left So keep both your eyes Dead set upon the ground And maybe we can escape with our lives We're always looking for an easy way out We always need what we've just thrown out The human perception of past We'll need what we're gonna throw out So try and make it last If we leave all they'll find Is remnants of someone who left If we keep all our eyes Up off the ground Then maybe we can escape with our lives When they come

A waking dream of sights and sounds And whistles in the head I wander through the streets in hopes Of attaining peace there No good So I sit Hang around all day Just waiting for a change of pace Just a taste Cement and glass under a morning moon The lights are on in the street Awakening to the sound of birds And the long line in to get some meat Run away For fog and haze Will surely erase All trace and tracks we've made Now here I am, deep underground Trains fly by, both in and out And I see you on a ledge letting go No, wait...It's me Hang around all day Just waiting for a change of pace Just a taste of the chase To make it okay

I'll hold my ground If you can hold on to yours But is that enough? Because it could get rough If suddenly what we can't see Leaves us with a vacuum for a lung We'll hold our breath If it's all pulled apart And there's something else Between stars and cells All things will find their place In time and in space And expand until we freeze We've shown by math and scope That there is something more; That there is something off And there's nothing that we can say And there's nothing that we can do To buy ourselves release from truth And expand until we freeze Or implode until we burn, or explode We should find someplace to hide The phone and remote Now is their time to shine Oh, so bright And all they say Is so vague

Timosis 05:23
It's all coming together It's all been this way forever Because time sits on nothing And feel it baring down To take this and make this Exactly what you want But it's a beautiful day For messing around For wasting our youth For going nowhere like they say Exactly what we want to do It's already in motion Like all rivers to the ocean Time has these wings Like a bird that flies away And what you thought was Tomorrow is yesterday And no! No you don't Make it last Oh no, no you don't Make it last

In the vast expanse ahead of me I could find no pain My world made so much sense to me I'm numbed by all this change How can we rise above it all? What does that even mean? Your language so bewilders me But I can't deny what I've seen What is this you're showing me? What's happening to my brain? Explain to me this "up and down" So I can fly away Now you know of "Up, left, back, forward Right, down, sideways" Before, you could not fathom more Than lines on a page Now we know of past and future "Wonder", "glory" are thy names This world that I have found Now that you have explained "up" to me I don't want to come down Don't make me go back from whence I came I don't ever want to leave Two can never be enough for me again I have to find how far it goes
