Track Name: Librium Green
Monday you woke up to mortal sky
Your skin no longer silver and no lazer-beam eyes
Once the trees bent back just to let you by
But now now your mortal skin is gonna make you cry-ie-ee-ie

You were up in Heaven when the sky was dyin'
Volcano and tornado throwing dust into your wine
Some ungodly wind whispered you will die
'Cause you've been so destructive to the human kind

Now you're a man so you gotta get high on Librium Green
But it's still better than G-d 'cause he don't know what you mean
This ain't heaven or hell but some blue stone in-between
Track Name: Calisto
Headed towards the Sun, you know, it's true
I'm on the run looking for you

Should I turn around?

Climbing up and down the hills and valleys of the sound
Looking for you

Should I turn around?

No!

Headed for the moon, you know, I left the Earth in June
I got a signal from you

Should I turn around?

Jupiter, she calls to me; she sings sweet haunting songs
That lure me far away from you

Should I turn around?

Let me go about my business
Let me go about my business
Let me go about my business
When the steel trap is snared
I'll go running; running scared

Headed for the stars; the black unknown
They told me I would find you orbiting out there

Should I turn around?

And it's cold, and it's cold
And it's co-ol-old
And it's cold, and it's cold
And it's co-ol-old

Should I turn around?

Let me go about my business
Let me go about my business
Let me go about my business
When the steel trap is snared
I'll go running; running scared
Track Name: Entre Nous
Circles grind to circles in a never-ending grind
Stars and squares stuck in your hair
As I leave you behind

If I can't relate to you then what's a boy to do?
If I can't relate to your weird madness
Entre nous

Patterns jam to patterns in a never-ending cell
Sticks and bricks might have broke my bones
But our flames sent me to hell

If I can't relate to you then what's a boy to do?
If I can't relate to your weird madness
Entre nous
Track Name: Base Kamp
We were having fun like dreaming
The Empire stole our guns and now I'm screaming again
Gimme one day, just a day to relax
Sleeping in this broken-down mountain hideaway
We can all stay warm without these attacks

There's a line for pills each morning
Like a sedative train and we're all boarding friends
Twenty minutes until the wall of fire
Like a cup of warm light poured into a well
Smiling hand-in-hand our eyes go black

Green-blood William Tell
Crossbow over his shoulder
He'll never grow one day older
'Cause he's a hound of hell

Where supermodel soldiers
Crowded the battle plateaus
Where the longest winter froze
Now the Dying Days are over
Track Name: Buildings
In this building I live on the top floor
All these towers around but I'm not sure
All the lower stories they seem so dark at night
In this neighborhood things ain't quite right

Birds are swarming around the thirteenth floor
Of the high-rise tower thirteen blocks away
I see the black top government cars arrive
Elevate the threat alarm and stay inside
Track Name: Wound Queen
I'm in love with a train wreck
Deeply flawed; a derelict of G-d
I'm in love with a Toltec
Moving energy with nary but a nod

I'm in love with a wound queen
Nothing healed; nothing mended with a scar
I'm in love with a star being
A whirling dervish spinning galaxies afar

I wanna wake up
I wanna way; I wanna way out

It's gunna play out
I wanna stay; I gotta stay out

It's gunna play out
I wanna way; I gotta way out
