Track Name: Spirals
Just say my name
Say the words to bring it back again
To everything
Before everything began
I swear
I swear you were never there
And what you think
After all who really cares?
Hands as trees
They keep waving me
Into your thinking
Arms to motion forward
Broken and silent, motor
What you need is what I'm wondering
Can you see what's ahead of me?
Can you feel the warm machine?
I know you can
I think you know
I think you've known this all along
Here I stand, smothered between
Everything you threw away
Is this war worth fighting for if nothing here is left to stay
It's times like these when memories seem to fade and float away
well,
I think you should notice
Now that you've been found
They'll have you surrounded
I'll be looking down
These feelings will guide you
Like dreams you thought were yours
Well I'm here to tell you
What you can't ignore
Out here they will find us
It's all in my mind
But now that it's over
I'll search for what I can't find
I'm not here
I'm in hiding
This room is safe
Answers are so evident
Our time here is better spent
Forgetting why we exist
Let's drown our fear
Wrists tied from under me
The kind only I can see
Searching for a remedy
I'm not here
Speak, but the words escape me
Think, this is not okay
Will, you remember
This another day?
Will you remember me?
Track Name: Rocco's Ride
Speaking in tongues from hallucinatory lungs
Picture yourself in a world with nobody else
Can't wait to get myself out of here
It's too late so I'll never
See the things that I found on the other side
For so long
So I think this might just be the time
To get what I'm after
And I feel what it feels to be alive, for so long
Places like this they can only exist in a dream
The air that we breath and the world we perceive through our eyes
Can't wait to get myself out of here
It's too late so I'll never
See the things that I found on the other side
For so long
So I think this might just be the time
To get what I'm after
And I feel what it feels to be alive, for so long
Track Name: Mr. Chips
Backwards thinking, caged-in view
Feel their presence watching you
You failed to mention you'd be here but now that you are it's the greatest surprise
When you fail to see your side unfold into everything
When you draw the sky, don't let it burn your eyes
So what you need, a nickel for all, a nickel for every
Track Name: Jabberwock Jazz
Take your time
Say what can't be denied, I'll help you
Close your eyes
Move to the other side, I'll show you how to
And I know who you are
And I know who you will soon become
Now we've made it this far
So just tell me your name, I can't speak
What did you really expect to find?
Something more, something left behind?
When it comes will you recognize
this new disguise which you hide behind?
Slow down, you move too fast
Free, it's what you want and need to be
I found a better way
See, this is how it's meant to be
This is higher than you'll ever reach,
is what she said staring down on me
Where are we really meant to go?
The pictures bleak but the color shows
Slow down, you move too fast
Free, it's what you want and need to be
I've found a better way
See, this is how it's meant to be
Open wide, hearing colors from inside bleeding through
Here's the line you never fail to step behind
I've seen you, brand new
And I know who you are
And I know who you will soon become
So you've made it this far
So just tell them your name
