Track Name: Catmandeu
It's been a while since we last spoke
Have all these anchors got you too?
You're lifted from this sunken ship
And now you don't know what to do
But there's an island in plain view

We're both so young
But time is slipping through our hands
Don't know what drove you out to sea
I guess we'll find out what could be
And that's good enough for me

And there goes four years time in just a week
But there's no hurry, why the fuss?
Said eventually these days will end
Till then let's take the raft and go
Just the two of us

We're both so young
But time is slipping through our hands
Don't know what drove you out to sea
I guess we'll find out what could be
And that's good enough for me

The destination, now, is all on you
Arrival time is just next week
I heard you got a brand new ship
The kind that never gets a leak
So here's to you when we next meet

We're both so young
But time is slipping through our hands
Don't know what drove you out to sea
I guess we'll find out what could be
And that's good enough for me
Track Name: Red Rock & the Arachnid
In a land of dreams we never had
Magnetic stares delayed for days
Halting all mistakes that came to pass
On a perfect stage this play had seen the ending of its second act
Sparing all her pain

(I was unaware)
Not a single word could make this right
(That I could not bear)
So I force the floodgates closed tonight

Forced away without a word to give
Falling tears deprive me of my home
Never mine to claim, I've come to see
Even though she feels she's been usurped
I'd soon depart to save us both
Such a bleak reality
Track Name: Again & Again
You bring me up
You broke me down
I can't believe you weren't around
You went away for all those years
And all those years became my greatest fears

Oh I can't believe that things were at their worst
And I can't believe we ever weren't on terms
Now I see things how they're supposed to be
And I'm glad that you still mean the world to me

But even then, you weren't aware
But it wasn't like you didn't care
And now I'm back and so are you
And we're all grown up and different people too

Oh I can't believe that things were at their worst
And I can't believe we ever weren't on terms
Now I see things how they're supposed to be
And I'm glad that you still mean the world to me
And I’m so glad you mean the world to me
And I’m so glad you mean the world to me
And I’m so glad you mean the world to me
Track Name: Viejo Animal de Monte
Eyes that burn
A mouth that foams
Upon your slab I'll rise
And as the smoke began to set a child was born tonight

Have they come to see your little freak?
Lack luster looks to bear
A burden we'll soon share

Time would pass
Resentment builds
A night upon this town
The girl I met beside the creek would prove to be too weak

Have they come to see your little freak?
Lack luster looks to bear
A burden we'll soon share
Track Name: Tijuana Bible
So here's how the story begins
About the man who sold his skin
Lines weren't drawn
And money was wearing thin
But what have we here?
It seems that I've received a gift
The type to make her scream
And who are you to say to me this ain't how I should be?

So don't come here to scold
Cause in my dreams I couldn't find a better way to spend my days
But tie downs, Miss, may cost a little more

I knew a girl named Poverty
Who claimed a life of chastity
Preached the word
Claimed god her only friend
A doltish facade
And as the lights began to dim
The bed at night would stir
And happily I aimed to taint this pretty little saint

So don't come here to scold
Cause in my dreams I couldn't find a better way to spend my days
But tie downs, Miss, may cost a little more
Don’t you scold
Cause in my dreams I couldn't find a better way to spend my days
But S&M may cost a little more
Track Name: Surf Song for the End of the World
If I could see things as you do, life would seems awfully swell
So swell...
Not just a child, your mind is wild
Entwine your fingers throughout mine
And watch those from the sky destroy our home
It was our home...

An aura fills the clouds tonight
To set the tone for our goodbye
Goodbye...
This pleasant light does wreak of flesh
The flesh of those we held so dear
The ones we called our kin and friends
My kin and friends...

Like they say: "It had to end some day."
At least this way
We'll learn we weren't alone at all
Within your eyes I greet the end

Like they say: "It had to end some day."
At least this way
We know we weren't alone
Within your eyes I greet the end
Track Name: Sultana
Every time I meet your eyes
Half the thoughts I want to own become so faint and paralyzed
Because your mine, at least, at heart
But like the words I'd longed to hear
Its from your lips they won't depart

So I, I second guess what's never meant to be with me

But with time all wounds will heal
Denied a chance, perhaps she stands to ignore all feelings of appeal
But can I learn to accept a loving touch upon my hand
Knowing that I'll always be exempt?

I second guess what's never meant to be with me

Hang the lights as we all dine
A blushing bride who sits across from a man who forces down his wine
Drink the truth and stay a while
"My whole world I'd give to you, even if it only made you smile."
Track Name: Sky Cake Dodge
He's a hopeless dog just getting by
Not believing in cake in the sky
Sometimes he wonders how he's still alive

And he dreams of her all night and day
Minutes, hours, days, and miles away
No matter how long he will never stray

Yet he lives to see another day
Fleeting notions moving on the way
And yet they know things never stay the same
They never stay the same
They never stay the same at all
Track Name: Moda
My dear, please tell me what will be
I can't escape from what I see
A prisoner of this sad reality
And from above I feel the bind
We're quickly running out of time
I grasp at straws to still hold onto you

I hold the key inside my hand
These pills prescribed generic brand
To build a tolerance, I'll stand
The role of science in our lives
We take its refuge from our minds
In an attempt to alter time

A sea of fairy tale lies
Fountain of youth, the tree of life
How much we've changed where hope resides
But still its what I have to do
These are the tools I need to use
To stay here long enough to be with you

Oh dear, my time with you is short
This is what I've had to resort
It’s not a choice but a necessity
I’d like to stay right here with you
Till then I'll try to follow through
I'll escape time and space for you
If that's the thing I have to do
Track Name: Pillars of Creation
Steer away
And meet me at the pillars of creation today
Short it seems
The time we had but now a bullet took you away

A millennium is not enough to separate the wave
That ties me to the purest mind that lies behind your eyes
Stay with me
Just stay with me

So it’s said
I'll meet you at the pillars of creation today
Pull the veil
And end the lights to greet the cold of saturn tonight

A millennium is not enough to separate the wave
That ties me to the purest mind that lies within the grave
Stay with me
Stay with me
