Track Name: Lavender
you’re painting silver terraces
where nothing previously stood
I craft with methodological lies
I wish that every little thing could be paramount at least twice

but it seems to conquer all your dreams
your thoughts cannot stop time
and even though you’ve grown
doesn’t mean its over
and even though you've grown
doesn’t mean its over

anecdotes that you devise
take them slow, wrap your words with lavender
with making every echo blast
with making every curtain fly open

and mimes are just your projections
projecting your masks, projecting your character
but it seems to make you overthink
but it seems to make you overthink
straddle ancient wisdoms, set yourself under
the placid colonnades

where you can feel the earth breathe
where you can feel the earth breathe

oh you can see
oh you can see
oh you can see
oh you can see
Track Name: Metaphysics with Mr. Jordan
see you won’t ever trust me, nor look how I do
yesterday i plunged so hard I couldn’t, even begin
to compromise every inch of myself I sold for a cheap placid grin
I traced a metacarpal along a fiberglass stem

oh
oh

zephyr and starred
my time for breathing is fitful
clipping fingertips for riotous applause
I cave when dawns don’t welcome, no

oh
oh
you never could tell, you never could tell, could tell, could tell

you caved so gently but it felt so strong I gave in
and now my convalescence is streamed within
there is ice in their laughter that won’t fade or falter
but my heart I miss it standing with a messenger

oh
oh
you never could tell, you never could tell, could tell, could tell

seas and chains everywhere
seas and chains everywhere
seas and chains everywhere
seas and chains everywhere
