"...a pop-forward merge of synthetic and organic rendered by sparkling keyboards, svelte guitars, and silky beats. Whether in dance-floor absorption or late-night voyaging, the music is always constant, liquid motion."

Track Name: My Love Is Whole
children awake
take to the skies

arise with the wind
flying close to the sun
be alive

children awake
and bring new life

animate the beings
from impossible dreams
in the night

oh my love is whole
oh my love is whole

children awake
take to the skies

arise with the wind
flying close to the sun
be alive

children awake
the land is yours

alive like a song
we can all sing along
forever and evermore

(be not afraid)

oh my love is whole
oh my love is whole
Track Name: Young And Free
young and free
like 93
everybody's looking like they're on TV
and we're binging on our uppers like we're real celebrities

colored lights
black around your eyes
besides a little bit of blood your nose looks fine
just keep touching me love so I'm sure you're still alive

I heard your beating heart
pure loneliness
passing like a ghost
through nothingness
it's all for the best
I don't want to be your lover
I just want a bed where I can rest

you touch me where it hurts
words all a blur
coming in reverse
bodies in the dirt
fuck me in your furs
I don't want to be your lover
I just want to be a bridge you burn

we've gotta move move move
and every day will be a holiday
we've gotta run our mouths
even when we don't have words to say
it's skin and it's sex
and tomorrow we won't be this way
but it sounds like the same old shit we said yesterday

young and free
like 93
back when there were music videos on MTV
and we're binging on our uppers like we're real celebrities
Track Name: Little Children
trip the lights and kill the sound
turn the universe around
listen little children for a voice or energy
begging to be found

break the locks outside the cage
drown the devils in the waves
careful little children of the witches and the thieves
begging you to play

run run run run run run run run run run run run run
run run run run run run run run run run run run run

we've grown old too eagerly
sow the seeds you plan to reap
be patient little children settle down and act your age
I beg you to believe

only truth

listen little children
listen little children
Track Name: Kings
the sorrow we can't take
that is there when we awake
it'll pass

the worry that is real
that wasn't part of the deal
it'll pass
it'll pass

the trouble in our eyes
that's been eating up our lives
it'll pass

the evil in our hearts
that's been pulling us apart
it'll pass
it'll pass

the houses where we laughed
and the family that's passed
that we need back

we'll be with them again

we will be kings we will live better
crashing like waves on the shores of heaven

we will be with them
Track Name: Ever We Are
sun comes up the ritual begins
poison blood comes rushing under skin

life
a healing scar
oh eternal
ever we are

patient faces pulsing in the air
forgiveness for us all is everywhere

life
a healing scar
oh eternal
ever we are
Track Name: Belong
our lives are so messed up
we don't have to worry
just like the burning sun
we will shine on

when no one will sympathize
we don't have to worry
cause with the changing tides
we will move on

and oh you've acted this way for weeks
the days and nights of crowded dreamless sleep
go on
go on

our lives are so messed up
we don't have to worry
just like the burning sun
we will shine on

we'll bury our dead in the yard
of the house where we were kids
and build an alter there
that will live on

and oh you've acted this way for weeks
the days and nights of crowded dreamless sleep
go on
go on
go on
go on

our lives are so messed up

we end up where we all belong
Track Name: I Want It All
chained to the streets in the city of dreams
another fool proof plan coming loose at the seams
I'm dope sick again and my weakness just screams
"it's mine this mess is mine"

burning down the road at a hundred and ten
the weight getting lighter as the junk settles in
it's thirty years later and afraid of my skin
we all go through these times

I want the music loud and a starless night
I want the moving crowd and your body on mine
I want the bass and the treble
motherfucking heavy metal all night
I want to lose myself in spinning lights
I want it all

gold toothed junky begging me for a pill
another panic in the bathroom while we settle the deal
and life keeps spinning like a rusty old wheel
I wonder when it's gonna stop
Track Name: Bag Of Bones
my skin starts twitching on this old bag of bones
I feel my body change all the time
it's like since you've been gone nothing is right

this house is a prison and I'm climbing the walls
I'm scratching for a deep itch I can't find inside
this poison I defend is playing with my mind

so how's life on the road
is it true my love that you're coming home?

I feel the devil pulling like he wants to come in
I'm switching out old excuses for lies all the time
since you've been gone nothing is right

static on the TV promising a parade
I'm in the back room waiting for morning to turn to night
the one's I call my friends are messing with my mind

so how's life on the road
is it true my love that you're coming home?

one fine morning when this life is over
I'll fly away
Track Name: Sunblind
the sun keeps messing with my eyes
the sun keeps messing with my eyes
the sun keeps messing with my eyes
the sun keeps messing with my eyes

a lullaby while we're high
and breathing all together
everything in time
but hurry up little one
don't get left behind
Track Name: Twisted Little Sister
snakes are in the kitchen
a devil in the yard
twisted little sister has bit me in the arm

swinging from the rafters
and falling all apart
heady holy healers be still my bleedin heart

and the radio screaming hazy delta blues
on an ocean running round inside the moon

girl your skirt is filthy
now shake that tamborine
starving for the dirty center of everything

a junky queer a phone card
a brother with a dream
the secret of survival a tree grown from a bean
Track Name: Closer To
hurry up little angel
I know you can't stay out late tonight
the streets are bright and the city's alive

follow me little angel
your sweaty body in the pale moonlight
people stare as we pass them by

closer
closer
we're closer
closer
