Track Name: Future Bones
If future takes me to find our bones
i'll mold them together
and desert this form
Break (break) original rules that would guide the way we'd move until
we required cover
and strange spirits remained

I can center on such things to build (to build, to build) higher good
And I can center ways to build (to build)
from set stains in the dirt
but tied to the past
Who saw it destruct
(ooh) but never could stop
to ease it...?

Breaking down our form so patiently
And I have a design for this
If what is left is an energy
then what is gone?

Not creating walls, life gathers at our backs
Like many others we would come undone where we were loose

I become an island
I do become an island
I watch life from afar before they find me
I become an ocean
I do become an ocean
I carry carry much deeper than I see

Now I adore you
I do adore you
finally
I adore you
Finally I do adore you

Breaking down our form so patiently
And I have a design for this.
If what is left is an energy
then what is gone?

Not creating walls, life gathers at our backs
Like many others we would come undone where we were loose
Not creating walls, life gathers at our backs
Like many others we would come undone where we were loose
Track Name: Sugar for the Queen
Who are you?
Must be brother
Rooted by you
Like no other
Oh this story
This story must be jaded
Oh it's jaded ah ah....

Who are you?
Must be sister
Rooted by you
Like no other
Oh this story
Oh this story must be gone



Intertwined by things we'll never see, never feel,
never know, never we try

You can try to think about the ones that think about you

Well I know,

But I say,

Please don't go,

But you can't stay


I've got no choice

But to leave

I've got no voice

Nor eyes to see



Working for the

Working for the queen

We control the

Sugar to the Queen



Lost in these thoughts that you'll never know, never hear, never ask, never you'll care

You can try to put yourself behind the eyes of others



Well I know,

But I say,

Please don't go,

But you can't stay


I've got no choice

But to leave

I've got no voice

Nor eyes to see



Working for the

Working for the queen

We control the

Sugar to the Queen
Track Name: Mess it Up
When the world begins to pull you down you fill me with 
(no words) or wishing wells.
To keep me safe you pull me out (in).
Sorry you look so tired, I might be strange. You know I am
Take control if you fear something.
Why'd we mess it up?
Why'd we mess it up?
Baby I don't I don't understand you.

When the sky begins to lose its ground, we settle in side.
It won't be long before we're out on top again.

Why'd we mess it up?
Why'd we mess it up?
Baby I don't I don't understand you.

Pushing to fit and not stun in your silence.
Willing to wait and not press on our backs.
All this. all this. All certainty falls in parts
Will you return once i've settled my sound?

It's a pity the light is gone.
Will we set ourselves at ease while disarmed.
All ties are out.
It's a pity the light is gone.
Looking down can't sing no righteous songs.
Will we set ourselves again? 

Pushing to fit and not stun in your silence.
Willing to wait and not press on our backs.
All this. all this. all this. All certainty falls.
Will you return once i've settled my sound?

When the world begins to pull you down, you pull me in.
Darling listen up I know these words are humbling.
Why'd you mess it up?
Why'd you mess it up?
Why when?
Baby I don't I don't understand you.

When the sky begins to lose its ground we settle in side. 
It won't be long before we're out on top again.
Why'd we mess it up?
Why'd we mess it up?
Why when?
Baby I do not
I don't understand you.

You are soundly silent
Searching her to find it
And you love your world and you find you finally found it.
She is such a dreamer.
So you'll have to seek her.
Would you like to meet?
Are you already gone?

It's a pity the light is gone.
Will we find light is drawn when ties are off?
It's a pity the light is gone.
Pity we don't even think we need our righteous songs.
Will we set ourselves...
Track Name: Bling
There are no boundaries
I don't understand this

Do you recognize
Do you, do you recognize my voice?
I'm not always breathing

Though the heart's beating
My eyes are reaching
I hear you trying to pull me out

from what's synthesized
Will you recognize my voice?
Who decides that this is necessary?
Blocking out the frequencies of the unknown

Witness sees velocity that's phasing
Most of this is hiding
What is hiding
what is hiding
what is hiding?

What do you mean?
I don't know
Just a sign of science
Just a sign of science

What did you see?
Eyes to the floor
And if I do not understand it, was it real?

What do you mean?
I don't know

There are no boundaries
I don't understand this

Do you recognize
Do you do you recognize my voice?
I'm not always breathing

Velocity is phasing

What decides that this is necessary?
Blocking out the frequencies of the unknown
Witness said...

They say ,They say, They say

Reality is bending
Most of us are hidinh
What is hiding
what is hiding
what is hiding?

What do you mean?
I don't know
Just a sign of science
Just a sign of science

What did you see?
Eyes to the floor
And if I do not understand it, was it real?

What if I do not understand it, was it real, was it real?
What do you mean?
I don't know

There are no boundaries
l don't understand this
