Track Name: Ascent
The sun came up today
In a faded dusty gray
I told myself aloud
With my eyes raised to the clouds:
"I know it's time to leave now.
Yes, I know. It's time to leave now."

My hands grasping the bars
Be still my racing heart
The world is growing smaller in my wake

I'll pedal toward the skies
With my eyes gaping wide
My tears shimmering in the pale light

I'll go the way I came
A violent little flame
A firework for the world down below

My body burst apart
And scattered 'cross the stars
A new place that I can call my home
Track Name: DreamSpeak
I settle down into my words
And pull the letters from my breath
But it’s all dreamy air
What I speak is never there

A sleepy still beneath my tongue
An honest blanket draws me out
With sparks of tone and sifted speech
Parading in and out of reach

With the same electric waves
That show me pictures in my sleep
Stirs the buzz behind these lips
And between dreams are feverish

The static thoughts within this space
Awake with rhythm and unrest
Are seeping through a vacant mouth
So I can speak and let them out

With the same electric waves
That show me pictures in my sleep
Stirs the buzz behind these lips
And between dreams are feverish
Track Name: June
Sore battered bones
We're helplessly thrown
Into the depth of Summer once again
Shimmering violent den

Golden glowing malady
Ghostly calling of all the hazy memories
Did I die or is this all real?

A shell or a shard of glass?
A siren's call 'cross the sea
Crawling through the heat on broken limbs
June rears its head again

Golden glowing malady
Ghostly calling of all the hazy memories
Did I die or is this all real?
Track Name: Love Song From a Future Man
The clouds are gone today
If you told me that we're dying I'd think there's no possible way
There's a pretty hum inside my heart
That's triggered by the glow upon your face
And it's lighting up the place

The mortar rounds have stopped
They're muted by the plucking of this song
One by one drowned and dropped
A miracle of sound whirling 'round us
Underneath a flickering sun

I've made up my mind
With you I will forever be entwined
Suspended in time
Can we hold this embrace until we're freed from this life?

They're marching in the streets
Lets call it a parade and move our bodies to the beat
This system is collapsing but our smiles are everlasting
As we dance amongst the dreary camps

The provisions running dry
But I don't care 'cause there's so much to feed off in your eyes
Lets forget about what's happening and smile
As we gaze like children
So far up in the skies

I've made up my mind
With you I will forever be entwined
Suspended in time
Can we hold this embrace until we're freed from this life?
