Track Name: Hold Me Under the Sun
Never long ago
Never far away
Took a little word
Put it on a tongue
Put it in a song
Tried to tell a story
Something you could hear
Something you could touch
Maybe understand
Maybe even love
Like a little child
Always in your heart
Always in your mind
Always in your rib cage
Telling you to hold me
Hold me
You hold me under the sun

So you took a seed
Put it in my heart
Then it start to crack
Then it start to grow
Into something small
Into something big
Something like a bridge
Something like a boat
Maybe like a world
Maybe like a sun
Maybe like a child
Always in your heart
Always in your mind
Always in your rib cage
Telling you to hold me
Hold me
You hold me under the sun
Track Name: Coasts of Japan
I am a pebble
I sank down, down to the deep of the sea
I got swallowed by a stingray
And that is where I’ll stay
For a time
In the belly of a stingray
And meanwhile the rings
On the surface
Batter the coasts of Japan
Don’t be mad:
A clumsy heart is bound to stumble

Remember the day
You shot your arrow into the sun
With a slip of your tongue
You split the sky all open
Sent a torrent tumbling down
Nearly carried us both away
You found your footing now
But meanwhile the storm
Batters the coasts of Japan
Don’t be mad:
A clumsy heart is bound to stumble

We are the coasts of Japan
Track Name: We Leave the Windows Open
Chimes echo through
Open windows
And empty rooms
And the neighbors can hear everything
I remember the cross breeze
And my buckling knees
And the slow
And then the frenzy
And I would do anything

Chimes ring out in broken time
We’re shouting, we’re shouting
We don’t care…
We leave the windows open

Sensory overload
Then deprivation
I wanted to hate you
But then your scent again
Bring back everything
Through the window
Into my hollow
I am a child again
Throw my arms wide again
Take you inside again
Where all of the lies don’t mean anything

Chimes ring out in broken time
We’re shouting, we’re shouting
We don’t care…
We leave the windows open
Track Name: Wind-Up Child
She came up to the surface
Her eyes had never known the light
Struck blind, arms and legs,
And heart began to flail around
The net went down
She couldn’t fight

Wind-Up Child

He dove deep into the ocean
So deep, where the monsters hide
With all their wild hunger
In the dark alone forever
How could they know better
Than to eat him up alive

Wind it, wind it, wind it, Wind-Up Child

Pull me close and flip me over
Still inside like birds in flight
We were the kite was taken
By the wind into the night
And so the story heighten
And so the story die
When we wind up the story
When we wind it up too tight

Ok, Wind-Up Child
Ok, my Wind-Up Child
We play all night
And then we die to stay alive
Wind-Up Child
Sometimes
You’ve got to die to stay alive
Sometimes
Wind, wind, wind . . .
Track Name: Hana
No matter how hard I try
I can’t say what I plan
It happen every time
I get the open I imagine
You know my skin feel your eye
Whenever you in the room
Hana, Hana
When you gonna make that move?

Hana, Hana,
Don’t you wanna?
Hana, Hana,
When you gonna make that move?

You know I’m way more cool
Than I act when I’m around you
My tongue decide to hide
Behind a smile, behind a lie
My box is blue
She weeping, weeping for you
Hana, Hana
When you gonna make that move?

When I wake up with you all through my brains
To the edge of shaking rage
Are you awake and aching too?
Could you make that move?
Track Name: Something Happens When You Watch Me
Something happens when you watch me
I grow feathers soft and white
Sounds like glitter, tastes so bright
Just like whirlwind dynamite
I’m a drum under your sun
Warm my skin and make me tight
Come and play me loud as light
Wake the sleepers, shake the night
Something happens when you watch me

Lay me out under the sky
Paint my body with your eyes
All the trees they clap their leaves
In the breeze we swell and sigh
Something happens when you watch me
Fairies laugh and arrows fly
Fill me up until we cry
Let’s be quiet for a while
Something happens when you watch me

Silence
As large as life
Cracks me open wide
It happens when you watch me
Something happens when you watch me
Track Name: Geology
We
Float upon a sea
Of glowing stone
Not something that we chose
It is
We are
Crashing into each other!

We’re tectonic, outside of time
We collide, we make mountains
Until the sun explodes we will be
Crashing into each other!

I come
I go
My body stays
Your memory, molten waves
Melt me down deep below the sea
I am unmade
We are
Crashing into each other!

We’re tectonic . . .

Planets race by
Ages come and go
We just hang out
Making volcanoes

I think of your hands
I’m lava again
The ground is trembling
The natives are quaking
They’re making a sacrifice
But it’s only a matter of time before
Eruption

Slow, calm, crash, grind
Push ourselves toward the sky
Touch, make, become
Each other
Collide

The sky does not belong to the sky
The sea does not belong to the sea
We do not belong to each other
We are geology
