brave new machine (free) 05:27
cautiously divine more than i could bargain boast, well what am i? speak with us, vanity i owe my pride i owe a genius well unnatural the floor my lord the floor it's where i felt comfortable will i learn in time? good god what exactly am i? carefree brave new machine dive in, fuck gravity walk me home from bed come dream settle in my arms just sleep you don't have to die for sins you can't commit (get off the cross) i have seen you before, in my mind (holy what a way to go father what do i become? a fire little work a fire little work faster wash me with your hands gently, i'll never understand fear is not enough fear is not enough)
for years we've tried to make it work you've had enough brawny little you how i find you in december every year you find me here at bay anchored and i'm waiting through the Fall aching all the time you find, yourself a better life hoping i, well nevermind, nevermind never to wonder why this came to be never to find out why the cause curser of everything you wanted i dare you to tell me that i'm wrong tiny, my favorite one falling an endless fall lately, i've disappeared gone to pieces poor old me never to wonder why it came to be never to find out why the cause curser of everything you wanted i dare you to tell me that i'm wrong my place is your place it's alright entwined in the palm of your hand even if i said i dont believe in you would you still let me in?
mighty holy ghost i'm under pressure carries fast you know here's the door to your creator listen to the radio mighty holy master causing light to disappear and go i wrote it back and now i'm asking something that i should've known faith, does no good, i believe here, take the line climb on my boat, row or float like these dead fish lay hoping that you'd notice i'm here alive but not enough dark times are exactly my fears do i shine on? getting to fold my arms before you surprise, i'm not a saint i'm beginning find out love it starts with your picture starts when you're all alone i'm fond of the idea of becoming a stranger right at home oh you sinner i know what you're feeling i know that it’s getting old oh your wisdom i can see that you're trying i can see why you're letting go (getting away from my fingers again) starving up there with the best of them only to catch it all easy does it now don't curl up sort these devils out
muted colors 05:17
and i will hold you in feathers waiting for death to arrive gold doors open the heavens turn me right in to wine hold your child in the light oh you've grown but so have i meet me down by the river love was made the first time sober eyes open widely come close you know i don't bite cold hands on this neck of mine let me breathe through that pillow case don't stop you're almost there make room in the holiest place never again last time i write for the ones up above stifle my body in the name of love don't you weep for my soul, oh lord this was your doing it's what had to be done never again last time i write for them never again as long as i know never again last time i write for her never again as long as i know oh my god i've seen you divide
i've got some hefty plans ,i've got time i've got some dirty hands and they're all mine help me paint the picture i love simple conversation it's easy to hold (no you're never gonna get it right) and you squeeze am i free? well i was never one to give up i'm in a constant altered state i'm so afraid to let it out i might escape if i embrace what i create i better not the wave is tidal, smiths the idol i just can't complain at all the rest is what i make i better start or else i'll be late i'm ready to go back home to the house i've built kiss the face i long sing the songs i know you love it's a wonder how i became and i wonder how i'll behave i guess it's simple to say how we mingle in this tiny bed
and let this be my warning on your way we’re destroyed leave us here to waste we’re all doomed leave us here to rot away and die mary at last I’m here left her entirely bright and i kept her at peace do you mind? if i went to sleep
and to all the awful things I never got to say well here they come and some are black and some are gray and white and some don’t have a color please don’t wonder why cause I don’t know the seasons are changing once again my friends my friends my friends the seasons are changing once again and yet I stay the same and I try I try I try sometimes I get it right oh I try I try I try just not for you by the way my desire to defend has taken bait and again it pleases me to see you clean and well I can tell you wiped off your lips all i can hope now is the same thing happens to me and I wonder what I’ll be and I wonder what I’ll see places that you said that we would get to go we won’t people that you said I would get to know well I never will
