Right Angle 04:09
Can’t wake up At the right angle Deep down Deep down Deep down Now I know what’s waiting And now the fires are raging Let us talk Find the right angle Keep a, keep a, secret Without changing the phrasing Without making arrangements Let us all Try to untangle A reason, reason, reason For all the lies in the basement And all the hours wasted Now we know what’s waiting And now the fire’s raging Point your rifles at The all knowing eye Hold true and mean it Fill your pockets up And now you’re running wild All through the evening

Well the ashes fall From the auburn sky Forming walls of coal In the countryside And you leave your hole And you wonder why When the wind it blows It shakes the rafters Rafters, rafters… Either way you go They’ll be watching you Through a telephone In the radio Down a rabbit hole When you’re all alone When you cut through the cord Stopped listening to me In the night I would say You’re an animal Now I’m lost in a maze and the fire came Down the halls, through the door And up the rafters Either way you go They’ll be watching you Through a telephone In the radio Down the rabbit hole When you’re all alone In the radio, in the radio… The sky hovers over the road A bright supernova above burns out

Fairweather 04:04
In a balcony overlooking San Francisco Bay Felt the roar of an F18 making rounds across the state Looking over my shoulder for a rising tidal wave Saw the glow of forest fire on a hill by the Golden Gate Up in the clouds a trail of smoke from a rocket Breaking apart just like the foam from a wave Moonlight falling on my bed as the same scenes resurrect inside my head In the night Had a dream I was older And the oceans washed away All that’s left was a submarine from a military base I remember I saw you, hypnotized and half awake Then you pulled me in closer And you showed me what remained… Old little pictures in the fold of your wallet Fading away just like the scroll on a grave Moonlight falling on my bed as the same scenes resurrect inside my head In the long night, night, night

Sun peaked out at the end of day Glowing orange though a cloud of haze Evening falls, fire in the sky Parking lot on the interstate Now we go in the wrong direction Up the mountain with your blessing we will go Ground it shakes when it’s unexpected Stuck in place while the town is crumbling below Spirits down in the month of May Vandals tore up the government Helicopters littering the sky Everyone looking for an alibi Now you call when I wasn’t expecting All this talk and speculation Leave it alone Always safe and unaffected Still you talk to a ghost from centuries ago You ain’t as interesting Darling as you once were Trailed by a specter Lost in the ether You’re out in the open Blistering cold wind Waiting for the rapture Some shining hereafter Counting up All the cars on the road ­­As the rain starts to fall And it blankets the road Counting up All the cars on the road ­­As the rain starts to fall Till it blots out the sun Counting up All the cars on the road ­­As the rain starts to fall till it blinds everyone

Head lurches, the car reverses Sinking into the bay Old radio skips and searches ‘til the circuitry breaks They will be on the way They won’t find anything Down into the deep blue ocean Lost in inner space Tank purges and engine surges As the air escapes They keep searching the docks till morning While the tide pulls away Sunlight is on the way It shines on everything But no trace of a car or person So the memory fades Falling Falling Falling Under it all And now you’re calling out to me While I was diving in the reef I hear you calling out to me And now I’m rising from beneath

Alps 05:12
Graduate Consummate Fold the sheets Hang the wreath All we are Raindrops in an alleyway Dried up on a sunny day Half the day Idling Fast asleep Lost in dreams All we are Blue birds on a palisade Mesmerized by everything Now, fallen leaves Sinking underneath Icarus falls In the sea While we drift to sleep So much for the trick of space and time Morning comes and everyone is blind And there’s no wall to bang on ‘Cus the old world’s just bedrock We’re trying to cross an ocean But flailing in place Life underwater Life underwater And now we’re calling up Seeing light above Turning inside out Life underwater Life underwater And no one’s finding us Hallelujah Hallelujah

Circle 03:23
Guess we’re running in a circle Till our feet are blue and purple Guess we’re running in a circle Gravity it’s universal What’s even happening? Nobody’s asking nobody cares Why no reaction? As half of Alaska falls in the sea Who are the valkyries? Aligned along the balcony Looking down upon the circle Knowing pain is universal Can you not see we’re all insane? Little rocks circling the drain And when we get through It cycles round again Now always But now I’m waking Now I’m waking Now I’m awake Out in the pasture Withering apple falls from the tree In the compactor All was recycled into the sea We are a parody The last to come The first to leave And we’re running in a circle Till our feet are blue and purple Can you not see we’re all insane? Little rocks circling the drain And when we get through It cycles round again Now always But now I’m waking Now I’m waking Now I’m awake

2000 Years 03:34
Mary Anne Is there something you could do? To make us talk in a room When I walked down Hyperion Avenue I heard a call In the tree there were rustling leaves and then… A mourning dove Mary Anne Was that you flickering in the sky? Your voice trails off in the night When you left there was something missing on the calendar Day was breaking but we were beaten down And no one sang Two thousand years Old voices echoing On the holy days Oh lord Take me away Off to a safe place
9.
Howl 04:44
No reaction Total absence When I walk in You’re wandering Alone in the dark and silence You know you can let some light in? Passing traffic Distant motion You’re dropped in an open casket It pulls you in like a magnet Now you’re asking Fading old friend Why the stalling? Where’ve you been? You know that I must be honest And not give an empty promise Run away from all this Sun’s gonna rise Over the lake, the colors will change in autumn Run away from all this Take what you like Somewhere the days are long and the trees are sprawling Run away from all this Sun’s gonna rise Always you wait too long and the rain is falling
