Track Name: one for sagan
as the seas swelled up in the heart of town
we lit out on our rafts from the roof
and our pale blue dot faded paler still
and we starved on the bones of the truth
that we saw this happen to venus too
she got caught in a race you can't win
with a nervous laugh in the face of death
we hoped he was our friend

if the stars were shining you wouldn't know
we live under a permanent cloud
its amazing the way we adjust to the dark
if we have a chance it is now, it is here
earth is where we make our stand

burn the blood of the earth for fuel
overthrow those who stand in your way
when you live with a contradiction
you need fiction to make it okay
Track Name: the wheel
you ball so bright that we disappear
just like stars in the city glare
you are casually blind

you crank the wheel but it does not go
is your failure real or just for show?
who can say you didn't try?

hard to make sense of this
hard to know if truth is bliss
what kind of world do we want to make?
are we gonna try to get born tonight?
can we use a song to make things right?
Track Name: rumble
love aimed at me like a loaded gun
i was overcome
gave up and gained my life at one time
hushed by lilac wine

heavy notions rumble the crown of my skull as we sleep
curl like a wave and crash over me
stand me up straight and let me see
all that ever was waiting for me

don't look down, just look straight ahead
leave the bed unmade
time lapse trails turn forever on its side
let's open the way

over and over, i see your name in a recurring dream
each time i do, it's like music to me
and i sit up and start to sing
all i want to find, waiting for me
Track Name: vision gate
hold still wild heart
know you must reckon with the world
poised as you are in its palm

be here now, be like god
probing your wounds for what
god only knows

my hands were shaking as i took the controls
do i know where this goes?
i pushed it forward and i fell in the flow
my heart is in control
Track Name: gordian knot
as i came across your name in my phone, i remembered the way that we met
did i come across as a human being?
did i come across as something less?
did you hope that i was gonna open up a passageway to a gilded world?
while you guard the gate to a social stream where the blueprints for heaven unfurl

fear is not a way out of this
can't alight on a dream dismissed
coincidence of opposites
in my heart i am just like them
with a dark center in my eyes
haven't tripped in such a long time
we go back to the fire
we gathered around to stay alive

while you think aloud, i am picturing a polyptych of your different laughs
one for every phase of the moving moon, gleaming off a marble path
and i finally accept that the changes i want are the fruit and not the tree
i will work for rain, i will coax the sun, give a name to every leaf

fear is not a way out of this
can't alight on a dream dismissed
coincidence of opposites
in my heart i am just like them
with a dark center in my eyes
haven't tripped in such a long time
we go back to the fire
we gathered around to stay alive
