Track Name: Mountains and Valleys
Somebody get me to a hospital
I think I used up too much time
while I was doing the impossible
in the mountains of my mind

Tethered to the valleys
I caught a glimpse of your reality;
it seemed so far away
What if my vitals organs
were to fall out now and tumble to the ground?
I'm coming home

I was carried off by a nimbus cloud
It showered thoughts and airy tones
Ghostly vapors billowed over me
with answers to nobody's questions

Tethered to the valleys
I caught a glimpse of your reality;
it seemed so far away
What if my vitals organs
were to fall out now and tumble to the ground?
I'm coming home

Somebody get me to a hospital
I'm coming home
Track Name: Noisy Universe
Times talk
They're talking at me
all at once/not at once
Let's walk
from here all over history
all at once/not at once

I was just trying to keep it together
but my mind's on fire; it's a noisy universe
My mind's on fire! It's a noisy universe

Things talk
that we don't even have the words for yet
all at once/not at once
Do gods walk
in the lacunal space?
all at once/not at once

I was just trying to keep it together
but my mind's on fire; it's a noisy universe
My mind's on fire! It's a noisy universe

We made a comfortable space
with geometric shapes
but the transient are everywhere making noise

We are we are we're all transient
We are we are we are we're all transient
We are we are we're all transient
We are we are transient
We are transient
Track Name: My Medusa
I've been caught up in your catacombs
alone alone alone
I don't want it to feel like I've been getting in your hair;
sometimes I'm scared of snake bites

I try my best to step lightly
shield my body from your arrows
from your Gorgon gaze
When you're near I go blindly
'cause when I look into your eyes
it makes me turn to stone

Will you ease up on this pressure now?
Come on come on come on
And will you answer if I call to you
or will you follow in silence?

I try my best to step lightly
shield my body from your arrows
from your Gorgon gaze
When you're near I go blindly
'cause when I look into your eyes
it makes me turn to stone
My Medusa
My Medusa
When I look into your eyes
it makes me turn to stone

It's been awhile since I've been caught up in your maze
Alone come on come on
Would it relieve me if I sang a song...
a song about love?

I try my best to step lightly
shield my body from your arrows
from your Gorgon gaze
When you're near I go blindly
'cause when I look into your eyes
it makes me turn to stone
My Medusa
My Medusa
When I look into your eyes
it makes me turn to stone
Track Name: Crossroads and Graveyards
Must've been a lover in a past life
'cause all my love's gone dry
Will I see angels or devils
on the day that I die?
I've been playing with some hard luck lately
and I don't think it's gonna end
I've been searching for a cure to save me -
something I can apprehend
It seems I've caught myself a sickness
It's like a cancer of the soul
I had the hope of youth behind me
but now I'm growing old

Under a grey sky where the spirits meet
I'll lay my guns down and I'll find my sleep
No need for a grave to mark these bones of mine
Well I don't think I'll be coming home this time
No I don't think I'll be coming home this time

I traveled miles through the darkness
just to find a patch of light
I've just an echo of a heartbeat
but I feel it pounding in the night
I've been feeling apathetic lately;
it's time to catch up with my ghosts
No compass but the stars above me
Am I anywhere close?
It's funny how I miss the water
now that the well has gone dry
I wish I had someone behind me
who shared a teary-eyed goodbye
There was no one

Under a grey sky where the spirits meet
I'll lay my guns down and I'll find my sleep
No need for a grave to mark these bones of mine
Well I don't think I'll be coming home this time
No I don't think I'll be coming home this time

In those arms you hold the light and sound
A million miles to see it's you I've found
If these legs threaten to turn around
I will fall and take up with the ground
And I don't sleep
And I don't sleep
And I don't sleep
And I don't sleep
