Track Name: Fall & Crawl
I don’t mind if we take to the sea
Cause the sea is changing shapes all day
Like you change me

And I think you got so lost out there and it scared you straight to death
And I think your brain’s so tired ‘cause you never gave it a rest

So you fall
Off the face, the face of the Earth
And you crawl
To the equator

And you’re not coming back

Wish you’d hand your brain over to me
I could help you to breath, I could help you to see and I
Wish you’d put me on your sleeve
I could finally sleep, I could finally speak

So you fall
Off the face, the face of the Earth
And you crawl
To the equator

And you’re not coming back
You’re not coming back
‘Cause the skin’s burned off your back and so
You’re not coming back
Track Name: Faithfully Empty, Thankfully
I don’t know your name
I don’t know where you’re from
I don’t know your bones
And I don’t know your blood

I don’t know your name
I don’t know the mountain in your brain
Cause I don’t know the valley
I don’t know you without me

You are, you are
Faithfully empty
You won’t, you won’t
Hear me, thankfully

I don’t know your name
I don’t know your waves
I don’t know your sense of place
Or the places that you create

I don’t know your name
I don’t know your state
I don’t know your dirty face
Hiding under the burning grave

You are, you are
Faithfully empty
You won’t, you won’t
Hear me, thankfully

I don’t know your name
I don’t know your name
I don’t know your name
I don’t know your name
Track Name: Truly Aligned
I’ve seen a fire burn bright
in my eyes
And I felt a light go out
in my mind

I am blind or just truly aligned
For the very first time
And there are words of dying
That we don’t see ‘till we’re flying
I’m alive, but I am blind

I’ve seen the wise lose sight
And the bad do right
And I’ve seen the misguided find might
In their whys

I am blind or just truly aligned
For the very first time
And there are words of flying
That we don’t see ‘till we’re dying
I’m alive, but I am blind

Oh, where do I go?
I don’t know, I don’t know.

Cause I am blind or just truly aligned
For the very first time
And there are words of dying
That we don’t see ‘till we’re flying
I’m alive, and I am blind

I’m alive, and I am blind
I’m alive, and I am blind
Track Name: Scitzo
There are voices inside your head
And they’re making you live devoutly dead
But as long as there’s still movement inside your bed
You are fed, you are fed

0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o

And I don’t hear you
I don’t see you in the light
‘Cause I am frightened by the way you look inside
I am frightened by your might

0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o

There is no hope for Scitzo
He’s going down so slow
And I hope he knows his soul
Is nothing but an empty, burning home

And like a knife in the throat
Or a bullet in the skull
Makes you feel so grateful
That there’s a heaven after all

0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o

You are doomed if you do
And damned if you don’t
You’ll be reckless, a wanton
Or a recluse, a python

0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o

There is no hope for Scitzo
He’s going down so slow
And I hope he knows his soul
Is nothing but an empty, burning home
