Track Name: Lioness
in the woods i will wait
forest of love and fate
firelight, shades of hate
i’ll run, i’ll run, i’ll run, i’ll run

i’m on a hunt i’m after
like the fox i’ll run faster
beacon of blood, disaster
i’ll follow, i’ll follow, i’ll follow, i’ll follow

feverish dreams and flesh
primeval heart and chest
now i’m a beast i’ll rest
i’m done, i’m done, i’m done, i’m done

i’m a lioness, claw

instincts i’m animal
light on fire send below
heartbreaker, prey and foe
i’m done i’m done
Track Name: Float the Flood
voices sing in rounds
in tight harmony
i wrote a song the notes will stick to you like mud

it’s a melody imprint
a piece of truth
one i wrote to help me teach myself to you

float the flood
through the haze and fog
of my touch, my bond
it will stick to you like mud

there are times i hate myself
i fucked this up
there are times i say too much, too quick to love

in a mirror i decide to recognize
i’m a stranger in a skin-suit paralyzed

float the flood
through the haze and fog
of my touch, my bond
it will stick to you like mud

feelings
leave my locked to
captured, fucked up and angry
punishing you
nothing further than arms length
reach through
like a poisonous snake
squeezing you

float the flood
through the haze and fog
of my touch, my bond
it will stick to you like mud

float the flood
through the haze and fog
of my touch, my bond
it will stick to you like mud

it will stick to you like mud
it will stick to you like mud
Track Name: Grown from Good
maybe i’m a fool,
to love and to lose.
maybe this is real,
or a dream i can feel.
and i’m caught on the lure of,
the movement, the pull of
the tide and oceans turn
i will wait, I will wait

like the morning that’s waiting on the dew
like the sunrise that’s waiting on the noon
don’t mistake me i’m not waiting on you
i’m waiting on, waiting on, waiting on me

a shift an undertow
to reject what is known
I’m living in a thought
who i am, who I'm not
a confusion of heartbeats
reflection of two me’s
a picture of a face
she will wait, she will wait

like the morning that’s waiting on the dew
like the sunrise that’s waiting on the noon
don’t mistake me i’m not waiting on you
i’m waiting on, waiting on, waiting on me
on me

i never thought i’d lie
or be seen as unkind.
something i create,
a burden i, i can trace
to a primitive instinct
the attraction of need.
rooted deep inside,
grown from good
grown from good

like the morning that’s waiting on the dew
like the sunrise that’s waiting on the noon
don’t mistake me i’m not waiting on you
i’m waiting on, waiting on, waiting on me
on me
Track Name: Tarot Cards
you’re never far i know
you’re always in my mind
we’ll find our way to water
reflecting moonlight

i’m laying tarot cards
to read our fortune
the eight of swords, the chariot
the hanged man, lovers, moon

our shadows form like birds and beasts
projected on that hedge of trees
like puppets that we made in dreams
a fire, a blanket, a bed

but I don't want to leave this
despite the hurt and shame
a heartbreak is always worse
when i’m forgiven for causing pain

i’m laying tarot cards
to read our fortune
the ace of wands, the fountain
the tower, devil, sun

our shadows form like birds and beasts
projected on that hedge of trees
like puppets that we made in dreams
a fire, a blanket, a bed

our shadows form like birds and beasts
cut grass and dew stick to our feet
like fantasies of skin and sweet
imagined memories
Track Name: Sunrise to Shadow Grey
close your eyes
hold my hand, i’ll close mine
false and bright
death is a lonely light

thoughts of skin
the substance of sorrow in
cheek and chin
wait for me where we’ve been

from sunrise to shadow grey
from sunrise to shadow grey

birds of prey
nest in the cedar sprays
wind betray
that sunrise to shadow grey

when i wake
salt water, ocean waves
foam and break
you’re the hunter and i’m the prey

from sunrise to shadow grey
from sunrise to shadow grey

awake in fright
be my searchlight
we could hunt by night
two birds in flight

awake in fright
be my searchlight
we could hunt by night
two birds in flight
two birds in flight
two birds in flight

from sunrise to shadow grey
from sunrise to shadow grey
from sunrise to shadow grey
Track Name: Jolt The Amplifier
Play games
Making up friends to feel
Lonely and lost in my mind
Feel Bad
Am I the only one
Brain dead and wasting my time?
Brain dead, brain dead, brain dead, brain dead

Blonde girl
born to control she thought
To keep pace
A depressed family
Feel thin
Chemical additives
Breath in, smoke and move on
Breath in, breath in, breath in, breath in

Bold move
Love in a mirror ball
Old friends are wasting away
Headaches, panic and drowsiness
Kick in those vanity pains
Kick in, kick in, kick in, kick in

An illusion of control
made of sparks and wires
In a brain that’s full of holes
and some homemade liars
Swallow gel and chemicals
Jolt the amplifier


Jolt the amplifier In a brain that’s full of holes
Jolt the amplifier and some homemade liars
Jolt the amplifier Swallow gel and chemicals
Jolt the amplifier Jolt the amplifier
Track Name: 10,000 Feet
on this lonely road
power lines in rows
hard rime lies heavy on the boughs of trees

prairie sunrise on
twisted trees that shone
in a long past life we’re building fire

i’m looking down from 10,000 feet
labyrinthine lights and mazes of streets
even high up I can feel your heart beat
holding on, holding on, holding on

past that great blue lake
frozen bleak landscapes
a lone pine sways in the breeze I think of you

in a coastal town
on a beach we found
our lives and not our age between us now

i’m looking down from 10,000 feet
labyrinthine lights and mazes of streets
even high up I can feel your heart beat
holding on, holding on, holding on

wonder on that flashing point that satellite
spectre of a star a planet lost in sight
i will memorize your face and start a fire
hung up on my confusion and broken wires

i’m looking down from 10,000 feet
labyrinthine lights and mazes of streets
even high up I can feel your heart beat
holding on, holding on, holding on
Track Name: Hearts Disease
I am a spark
a circuit a wire
in the back of your mind
your brain synapses fire

you are the moon
a reflection that plays
a shimmering light
an inscrutable shade

I foresee
future scenes
where music halts my hearts disease

I feel like a tree
blown bent by the wind
grown on a coast
in a handful of sand

and through it all
i feel like i’ll choke
on these statements of love
born of anger and smoke

I foresee
future scenes
where music halts my hearts disease


the kinship of souls and minds
relics of long past lives
i’m not brave, but I’ll try
to read the signs and get this right

I foresee
future scenes
where music halts my hearts disease
Track Name: Winter Wind
I walked out on the ice
the sound of the melt, the northern lights
do the fish fall asleep down deep and caught?
in the shelter from the winter, winter wind

My shadow cast in blue
i trace myself standing next to you
i’ll wait for the snow to bury you
in the force behind the winter, the winter wind

the winter wind
the winter wind
the winter wind
the winter wind

The thump and crack of ice
the force of some hidden current life
pull the sun from the cut and see that light
take shelter from the winter, winter wind

I went to find my wound
in the hundreds of faces that i knew
my little beside her secret stone
she’s sheltered from the winter, the winter wind

the winter wind
the winter wind
the winter wind
the winter wind
Track Name: Wolf Cubs
Fade,
fade from the way it hurts, it hurts
you know, you know
in heart of hearts it’s worse
it’s worse to hold a thought your brain performs
she lies, she lies for fear of harm,
fear she lies

I carried it  to make a home
a way of life, i learned it from my mother,
caught up in an instinct learned from 
quiet wishes of romantic love
but now i see,
i’m the maker of me
you’re whole, i’m whole
we’re following
tracks through forests made by wolves
her cubs are howling 
howling
howling

a blue print for interpreting
emotions of 
a partner, brother, father 
mother take it off off,
unburden for a moment
fears of loneliness and guilt 
so you can see 
i’m the maker of me
you’re whole, i’m whole
we’re following
tracks through forests made by wolves
her cubs are howling 
howling
howling
