Track Name: Murder Song
Red,
The color of that dress
I'm painting the walls with
Blue,
The color of your eyes
and your blood when it's not oxidized

I'll,
be waiting in your apartment,
You wont notice 'till the lights switch on
Then,
you could show me around,
to a window I could push you out

When your husband gets home,
He'll ask me what happened
to you and when I tell him I'll smile
Are you alright?
You slipped on that knife,
your cut seems arterial...
Track Name: Mary Grace (I Call it Physics)
She pulls a lighter from her pocket
Flicks it twice and stares at the flame
She says I see food I see light I see warmth
A gift from God exactly tailored for me
But I see it differently you know
It's thermal and it's chemical
Oxygen binds with carbon and hydrogen
Like a billion little galaxies

I call it physics
She calls it Jesus
But we both agree that it's beautiful

"Isn't it empty in a world without God?
Where's your basis for morality?"
If you're only good for God then you're just hiding from the cops
you know I put my faith in humanity

"What reason can your music have" she asks
"If music be food for the soul"
I said we get the same feeling
I just call it dopamine while you say holy ghost

I call it physics
She calls it Jesus
But we both agree that it's beautiful

Galaxies colliding
Earth around the sun
Subatomic particles adding up to protons
Stars around the Milky-way
Moons around the planets
it goes like clockwork

I call it physics
She calls it Jesus
But we both agree that it's beautiful
Track Name: Let it Burn
Has this bridge always been burning?
I never felt the heat
With your pricking scalpel finger tips
Eviscerate me
Better days are bound to come I know

Let it burn
Burn me out
Let it burn
Run me out of time
Let it burn
Wait me out
Let it burn
I’ll be blown out of the water

Now your prose wracks me violently
Crack lightning down my spine
There’s a rumble in my head again
When I see your outline
Better days are bound to come I know

Let it burn
Burn me out
Let it burn
Run me out of time
Let it burn
Wait me out
Let it burn
I’ll be blown out of the water

You’ve got your novacaine
Your picture perfect face
When I told you my mind was a graveyard
What did you think you would find when you came digging
Now with your revolver tongue
Come on and shoot me in the head

Run me out of time
Let it burn
Wait me out
Let it burn
I’ll be blown out of the water
Track Name: Bike Song
I’m watching pavement fall – beneath my tires
I am finding patterns in the light
The tiny spots of sun that make it through the trees
Dance by the thousand with the shadows of the leaves

And on my bike
No one can find me
Leave my phone off
And I’m gone

I am lifting my head up – face to the sun
That star lays warm kisses on me
She promises me we’ll always be in love
And I believe her.

And on my bike
No one can find me
Leave my phone off
And I’m gone

Everyone needs their
Little place to hide sometimes
A bicycle’s mine

I flow like a river – down to the sea
Every kick puts demons behind me
I’m riding out until I feel like coming back
I’ve always wanted to see California.

And on my bike
No one can find me
Leave my phone off
And I’m gone
Track Name: Keplers Theme
Did I loose it back there
did I find it again or are all of my marbles lost
The gnarled teeth of the deep sea fish
Through the dark water I see the pale blue
glimmer of bioluminescence
I wonder will I ever make it home.

I can see the stars in your breath
scatter like sparks in a wind
fireflies in the perfect black vacuum
forever drift in dark infinity
And oh I fear the coming hour
With eyes straight ahead I watch for souls in the water
