Track Name: Human Clouds
we were walking through the water
something hollow pulled you under
you were gone as far as we could tell
just as well
nothing we could do can help you now

see the people
see the way
they just decay

nothing we could say can help you now
Track Name: Clairvoyance
all removed from time & space
is a small little voice that i can't erase
blurry vision, second sight
and i'm slowly drifting towards the light

on my own and so i know why
everyone i know feels all alone

on my own and so i know why
everyone i know feels lonely
on my own and so i know why
everyone i know feels all alone
Track Name: Everyone At The Same Time
everyone at the same time
can realize
everyone at the same time
can realize

blinded by the illusion
of everyone in mass confusion

all the world
all at once
all together now

blinded by the illusion
of everyone in mass confusion

maybe they're listening
but can't make a sound
mind on the inside
eyes on the ground
never go outside
but breathe from afar
keep till yourself
till you don't even know who you are

blinded by the illusion
of everyone in mass confusion
Track Name: Auspicious Minds
it's all in your mind
or so you said
but do you know
what's in my head?
or could you tell me
do you know what's in a name
coming from somewhere
where they're all the same
yeah

it's all in your mind
or so you said
but do you know
what's in my head?
or could you tell me
do you know what's in a name
coming from somewhere
where they're all the same

i can feel it
i don't wonder
if we're truly
going under

i can feel it
i don't mind
that we're running
out of time
Track Name: Is Believed To Have Been
go without
before now
is believed
to have been
Track Name: Wholed
i need help deciding
two new minds colliding
i'll be inside hiding
till they said the witch is dead

go then, you will say to me
look around you
oh, then i will not believe
how far i have run

go then, you will say to me
look around you
oh, then i will not believe
how far i have run

i need help deciding
two new minds colliding
i'll be inside hiding
till they said the witch is dead

go then, you will say to me
look around you
oh, then i will not believe
how far i have run
Track Name: Cherryfield
i was wandering out the other day
and i didn't know what i'd find
i was wandering, i was dreaming 'bout
trying to help you make up your mind

i was waiting for you to tell me
to spread my wings out and fly away
i was chasing the silver lining
but when i reached out, it turned to gray

it can't be as bad as it seems
though they warned me
too late, it's 1000 degrees
no one can breathe
Eau Claire
oh please
AP, save me
no one knew

rolling faster with every stammer
the walking letters that turned to hammers
fade to normal, return to action
what could i say to you?

if you say what you mean
say what you mean
it's unforeseen
if you mean what you say
mean what you say
then we would stay

nothing new
same old war
how can you
be so sure?

it's a cosmic crisis
it's a lonely process
if we're truly honest
we can get beyond this

if you believe me then come
and see what's inside
the great unknown
from it you hide
while you try to decide
if this life should be spent
all alone
