Track Name: The Creatures' Voice
Like a child hiding from the thunder and rain
There's creatures inside my brain
And the crumbling ruins of forgotten days
It's always just been this way
So I ask you to breakfast to emancipate
I couldn't've anyway
It's just I don't have the stomach for this unclothed feast
Because there's creatures inside my brain
There's creatures inside my brain

I head into the ocean where the charts don't see
To counter my thoughts on fate
And maybe search for a clearway through these pressing clouds
But the pressure begins to amount
Words fill up my vision, fill the space within
They echo and stop fading
And then the liquid air whispers, it says, “oh, no, no”
There's creatures inside my brain
There's creatures inside my brain

So won't you hold me together cause I'm out of phase
I wanted to change my face
Yeah won't you hold me again because I'm out of phase
Track Name: The City
The Lizard lost its home
Within the firing zone
I saw the world before me blacken
'til I was numb to the bone

The City is so unholy
Consumer rhizomes
Twist beneath the silent first blood
Shooting forth their mirrored bones

Jagged high-rise-on
Jagged fashion blondes
Jagged rips, the sound that spews forth
Locking down our conscious thoughts

But I can hear my hearts harp sing
“You better run, you've got to redefine the signs”

I turn to look at me
I see a million trees
I see a billion creatures smiling
I see the world unfold

Cause I don't walk alone
No I don't walk alone
Track Name: Sex & Silence
Heard you coming through the doorway
Tried to leave but it was too late
Stoned, the scent of you sank through me
Reason drowned inside the fog.

Turned to touch but there's no feeling
Choked your name, disrupted stillness
And now I'm crawling through the backstreets
Everything is coming down.

I searched across the deserts
Mirrored waves of my (your) denial
Screamed my way through sex and silence
I called and called,
I need you, need you
I need you, need you
Track Name: The Snyth
The Snyth it lives in a parallel place
Where the darkness breathes through the structureless shapes
That are passing through from our physical space

Reverberates
a lighter state
Reverberates
a lesser fate

The Snyth is lost through its inner fear
And the darkest thoughts could be whispered in your ear
But the secret is only meant for you and for it

They won't believe you
If you repeat it
They won't believe you
So don't reveal it
Track Name: Agabago
Have you heard of Agabago
He wakes at night
He lives outside
Agabago

They say he was born out of his mind
He talks to trees
He talks to light
Agabago

One day he came and took away the night
Our hearts were his
The same for mine
Agabago

He was a solitary man
Was a solitary man
And he lived inside my heart
We've been so far apart

So if you see Agabago
Just turn away
Just walk away
Don't stop
Don't stop
Agabago
Track Name: faceache
Ouch my face aches
I can't see straight
I have salty eyes

My brain's pushing
On its cushion
Shock waves in my mind

You masturbate your ego
Well I'm learning how to let go
Your reasons are too much to buy

You want an actual friend
Well how can I contend with
5,000 supposed ties, ties, lies?

Everything is left behind
Oh, everything is left behind
And I'm not looking for nothing
To come fix this heart of mine

Logging in to
My pen friends to
Generate some lies

I pretend that
I'm size 10 and
I have sultry thighs

Now, tell me, tell me, tell me
That I'm super funny
Just cut and paste some lines

Silence, my retainer
Bludgeon the container
There's no silicon in human eyes, lies

Everything is left behind
Oh, everything is left behind
And I'm not looking for nothing
To come fix this heart of mine
Track Name: Expiry Date
We're in the shade
A perfect place
The lights go out
It stays the same
We're in the shade
A subterfuge
In every face
The lies of truth
We're in the shade
A straining note
A dying dream
The missing race
Down in the shade
We're in the shade
We've lost our way
We're fading fast
The time to change
Is in the past
Down in the shade
We're in the shade
Track Name: Glossolalia
There was silence in the void
Silence and nothing more
Not the slightest little din
Nor a tiny fluttering wing
Could be heard in the forest that night
And all the little animals were still
Though they did not sleep
There was silence in the void
Silence and nothing more

Step right up, oh won't you join me for a ride
Through the silent void and to the light on the other side
This tale is true, but quite unlike the one you've read
There's endless facts to every truth, or so it's said

Let's pick things up in the thick of the forest of the darkest night
Where all the lands animals had been taken by a dreadful fright
The bravest few gathered up their nerves and their waning strength
To seek out Merriaduc, the all knowing singing wench
“She'll make some sense”

Oh' the Captain was the sharpest of the bunch
He'd eat four Beatles for his lunch, just for his lunch
He cried for Merriaduc whose tongue was quite absurd
She spoke though her three mouths were filled to the brim with words

And she said,
”My fellow captain, dearest animals now hear me
We are the victims of a plot of lunacy
This darkened shroud deceives and plays upon our fear
But do not cry, we're not alone, we're not alone, oh can't you hear?”

Deep amongst the slaters and worms
The Creatures' voice was all that was heard

(Glossolalia)

And The Creatures' voice became the light
And the animals all sang into the night
They did not hide, they did not fear
They let the light, their hearts grow near
They thought not once of their fearful ways
They all held hands and laughed and played
And when the song came to an end
They knew that it was dawn again
Track Name: I'll call you first
I unpack my bag
My old Cheshire Cat
Holds close my pain
Come break my fall

My fault
It's not that I don't love you no more

You're in my way
I can feel it everyday
I can't find my feet
No nerve any more

No more...

Thought we'd be sailing
Once more
But we'll be sailing
No more

Just don't forget to look my way

I'll call you first
Track Name: made up, caked up (11:11)
I don't want to leave the house today
I don't want to leave the house
I don't want to leave the house today
I don't want to leave the house
I don't want to step a foot outside
I don't want to go outside
I don't want to leave the house today
I don't want to go outside

Cause there's creatures falling around
They're crawling each way
Everywhere I go

I don't want to eat my lunch today
I don't want to eat my lunch
I don't want to eat my lunch today
I don't want to eat my lunch
A made up, caked up impression
Of the way I want to be
I don't want to leave the house today
I don't want to go outside

Cause there's creatures and they're crawling around
They're crawling each way
Everywhere I go
