Track Name: Black Rice
Throw me, a stack of wood

To wake me up

Knit me, some socks

Just right to warm me up

Follow, my feet

Before you swallow some

Hollow is better than

The sorrow, Son

Bring me, a plate full of the mystery

Taste it, a bite of it will set you free

Throw me
Track Name: Sunflower Corner
She sat pretty in the corner

Yellow like the sun that made her

She kept her fingers to herself

Trapped her voice in an inhaler

Walked across my path, sunflower

Following the light, I turned my head

Hypnotized with lips like lemonade

Caught your eyes and went away

Come with me, take a walk

Forget the day I woke you up

Turn around, you pessimist

Feel the warmth from the sky you kissed

A nirvana, heaven sent me

Sunflower, upon my sleeve and no

Words unspoken and unheard of

A spirit soaring in the sky above
Track Name: Normal Kombat
Wake up, put on your red boots

Honey, there’s a line of guys

Waiting out on you

Back off, it ain’t easy

To head for the door when

It ain’t love you’re working for

Face it, I’m the one you run on

I’m your only battery

Broken, baby that’s all I am

When I sink into your company

But you’re the only one that knows me

And that’s why you stay with me

I have no time in store and no energy

That’s why you stay with me

That’s why you stay with me

That’s why you stay with me

I’ll treat you, treat you like rock salt

Baby, stamping and walking all over you

Goodbye, winter is over

I don’t need your warmth anymore

You slay me, slay me with words

Forged of your jealousy

You move me, baby how you move me

And I know

I am ready to leave

But you’re the only one that knows me

And that’s why you stay with me

I have no time in store and no energy

That’s why you stay with me

That’s why you stay with me

That’s why you stay with me
Track Name: Paper Tiger
An inflating fear

Growing ever near

With nowhere to steer

Bound by vile leer

You’ve got wild shape

Teeth and eyes that gape

There is no escape

From your violent play

Paper Tiger, bares his teeth

Paper Tiger, sinks in deep

Paper Tiger, ignores scolds

Paper Tiger, oh so bold

You’re a freak of nature

You’re a great contender

You stay static, false offender

Automatic heart suspender

You’ve got wild shape

Teeth and eyes that gape

There is no escape

From your violent play

Paper Tiger, you live with me

Paper Tiger, go to sleep

Paper Tiger, you sure get old

Paper Tiger, it’s time to fold
Track Name: Reckless
I have these birds in cages

Of colours, shapes and sizes

I’ve bred them over ages

And fed them every crisis

I had the keys to free them,

But I fed them to the birds.

I also fed my freedom,

Every movement, every word.

I’m a hopeless nutcase

Frantic, moody, blurry love-dazed

With a compact broken suitcase

And papers still I’ve left to fold

Chasing after fire

Burning fingers for desire

Breaking bone and climbing higher

A blade without a hilt

I’ll break this cast to save me

From all the dirt that builds

Keep scraping off the chutney

And burning all the bills

I’m a hopeless nutcase

Frantic, moody, blurry love-dazed

With a compact broken suitcase

And papers still I’ve left to fold

Chasing after fire

Burning fingers for desire

Breaking bone and climbing higher

A blade without a hilt (x5)
Track Name: Heads Up
Heads up, pendulum swinging

It’s pulling me down till my face hits the ceiling

Take your medicine darling

It might do you some good

Silence the thoughts that are eating you alive

Separate the words from the memories you hide

Just when you think it’s all been said and done

That’s when it blinds you from the sun

Heads up, pendulum swinging

It’s pulling me down till my face hits the ceiling

Take your medicine darling

It might do you some good

Juxtapose the expressions on my face

‘Cause I’m running around and I need the extra space

You’ve got me going down this upward downward spiral

It’s got me goin’ going gone viral

Heads up, pendulum swinging

It’s pulling me down till my face hits the ceiling

Take your medicine darling

It might do you some good

Lace up the day is starting

You don’t wanna trip over strings

While you’re running
Track Name: Red
You suck out the life

I put it back in

It’s just the red I’m losing

A river of sin

Throw me a raft

I sink and you swim

I’m losing a bucket

My body’s gone slim

Nobody’s gonna save me

No one ever knows

It hits like a hammer

And bleeds like a rose

Throw me a raft

I sink and you swim

I’m losing a bucket

My body’s gone slim

Gone slim

Gone slim

Throw me a raft

I sink and you swim

I’m losing a bucket

My body’s gone slim

Throw me a raft

I sink and you swim

I’m losing a bucket

My body’s gone slim

Gone slim

Gone slim

Gone slim
Track Name: Sorosantelmo
Shadows form in the corners of my room.

I slide my fingers between the spaces -

Am I closer to my doom?

Have I lost all of my romantic grace?


Violent bonds this evening draws

I swear I hear the spirits calling my name my heart

And I swear I can hear every siren call as they say

Say say say say say say:


"Baby if you stay with me

Baby I'll keep your breath.

And baby if you stay with me

I will stay with you 'til death"
Track Name: Go West
Why can’t you say it?

Why do you mean it?

Times change I was born again

Keep coming down the line

Keep saying that you’re mine

Keep your mouth shut

Don’t say a thing

Help me out a bit

With a carrot or the stick

Treat me as a lover would

Doubts dismissed love understood

It wasn’t meant to be

You and I can never

See, she’s close to you

Just forget about me

I’m dying deep inside

I’m about to crumble

And I’m the only one

You’d want to hide

Why can’t you say it?

Why do you mean it?

Times change I was born again

Keep coming down the line

Keep saying that you’re mine

Keep your mouth shut

Don’t say a thing
Track Name: Honey Drum
I love you don’t you know

Wherever you dance I would go

You’re the seed I would sow

In my chest, to live and grow


My eyes are glazed in honey

And my bare feet lose control

My tongue grows numb and heavy

By the taste of it all


I love you don’t you know
Wherever you dance I would go
You’re the seed I would sow
In my chest, to live and grow

My eyes are glazed in honey

And my bare feet lose control

My tongue grows numb and heavy

By the taste of it all


Son, son what’ve you done?

You can’t be the only one

Row, row

where do we go?

I’ve never done this before

Done, done give me the gun

Let’s die while we are still young


You say you’ll play the drums

Because you say you fit the part

But the only thing your beating

Is my teenage heart

I’m crazy on your sugar

Rapid fluid in my veins

You broke my circuit breaker

Yes, you’re the one to blame


Son, son what’ve you done?

You can’t be the only one

Row, row

where do we go?

I’ve never done this before

Done, done give me the gun

Let’s die while we are still young
Track Name: Little Boy Who Lived Down The Lane
Away said the bellhop to the boy

In tongues that confused

The spirit with the man inside

Was ripped apart in two

A chorus child to live alone

In an ashtray he called home

The innocence had come undone

And the Gothic trophy won

He chased the hums of bumblebees

And the stingers they pierced skin deep

Swollen, intoxicated mess of a man

That little boy from the lane
Track Name: Reduced
I saw him dive into rhythm and he did not return

With a new spirit within him stirring, I am smitten

I would confess with all I knew if he would come to my rescue

Well it's not him I'd call, it's the beast, his stature, his claws

(I said) Look at what you've reduced me to.

I've kept my distance and I've heard everything. They say

He is a creature by evening, but he is my man by day.

And they said 'Baby move your feet before he shows you his teeth.'

I've never been so moved.

Between a mundane defeat and a vicious victory, he is what I'd choose.

(I said) Look at what you've reduced me too.
Track Name: Summon
Scooting about

Dumped to the ground

Looking for someone nobody’s around

Waiting and shifting down

Down the line

Grazing and sifting for my own mine

Send me an angel

Call on a fleet

I will be thankful

As all ends meet

Send me an angel

Call on a fleet

I will be thankful

As all ends meet

Wishing to stars, waiting on time

Looking out far, so far behind

They say you’re here,

Nowhere in sight

I feel no presence

But I will stick tight

Send me an angel

Call on a fleet

I will be thankful

As all ends meet

Send me an angel

Call on a fleet

I will be thankful

As all ends meet

Don’t look down
