Track Name: Sea of Tranquility
hack the planet, fuck the planet
give me the reason and i’ll pan it
i’ll give you a dollar nothing more
whole world is dying this is not
where i want to be sea of tranquility
get off the air breeze sensibility
i don’t care take me down
take me down media has the siren’s
blues take me down take me down
back to the lost and found
dead seas, bruised knees
and we’re taking it in
hack the planet fuck the planet
all it takes is a just a moment
all i want is just a minute of your time
spewing fumes like our tombs, deliver us
from here no discrimination in this destruction
no intimidation in your construction
tension is the medicine we're feeding off of
we will not forget our sincerity
we will forget our sincerity
Track Name: I Had Sex With A Tomagotchi
i had sex with a tomagotchi
she let me borrow her hitachi
but it was way too strong

little girls in sailor uniforms
their own uniform like an arranged marriage
tsunamis and temples
cute girls and dimples

one day i forgot to feed her
maid ran down the meter
i guess this what they call death

nuclear love affection
no hugs or kisses
in the otemachi district

and i don’t know just how far i can go
myself and i don’t know
just how far this affection goes
myself

can be she’s always in my pocket
like an electrical locket and i want
what’s inside

anime is for kids
this place almost nothing but business
suit and ties places with red lights

take you down to tokyo
show you just where to go
land of soap, here we come

girl locked in the bathroom
daughter in a hentai magazine
what is wrong with this society
“in america we call it catholic school”

and i don’t know just how far i can go
myself and i don’t know
just how far this affection goes
myself

try to catch those flying saucers
a life filled with tempting offers
an electric maze, nothing but a trap

i don’t get what’s going on here
little girls with their broken watches
girls with stolen time
what the fuck is wrong here

origami save our souls
Track Name: Faded Love
so there was this one time
what are you doing?
i’m planting sunflower seeds
we were winter gone in the spring
just wish we’d had more sunsets in between
in this faded love i wanna go where neither
of us have gone before
you and your telescope you gave me hope
i got sick in the lighthouse
you were trippin on your three hits faded love
we find an isolated island and find time again
when we made love it was like the woodpecker
killing the doves but i’m tired of killing myself
remembering doesn’t help in this faded love
i wanna go where neither of us have gone before
you and your telescope i don’t want this hope
i got sick in the lighthouse you were tripping on
your doubts faded love i wanna go where neither
of us have gone before carnations tracing skin
not sin just innocence these flowers
in this faded love this is just a sad stupid love
song this is just a sad stupid love song
Track Name: Oblivion
i wanna make you feel like oblivion
turning in the sea dark depths deep
breaths hold you like gravity
wavelength into black hole memories
‘warning may contain uncertainty’
kissing death in a past life love because
it’s tragedy i wanna make you feel like
oblivion wrap you in my red string of fate
go to antique stores like it’s a date
watch the sun die in a cemetery
cigarettes with skeletons nightmares
oh so scary death of the sun god you
were the one death of the sun
god you were the one i wanna make you
feel like oblivion wrap you in my red
string of fate turning in the sea
hold you like gravity dark depths deep breaths
matching caverns deep sea memory diving &
cardboard time machines somewhere in
between fantasy and reality
Track Name: The Tallest Man In North America
buried, uncovered in the shallow earth
he was eight feet eleven inches in a
box of wood tallest man in north america
tallest man i'd ever seen in his mound
the secrets he did keep in his mound
he dreamed nephilim or giant man
out of time out of time below him a
dozen more or so of his kind
tallest man in north america
tallest man i'd ever seen
in his mound the secrets he did keep
in his mound he dreamed
he traveled in a second life from town
to town step right up see the mound
builder from below the ground
tallest man in north america
tallest man i'd ever seen
in his mound the secrets he did keep
in his mound he dreamed
buried, uncovered in the shallow earth
he was eight feet eleven inches in a box
of dirt
Track Name: Ego Dies On The Mountain
felt the water moccasin in my pillowcase
laced with liquor got my bass
we collective we progress
not time for rest time has left
fire burns low this is no home
dark journeys born like cereus
we collective we progress
black lace covering my breasts
feeling feeling that ego death
feed the wolves in your desert skin
this is of a time when things went wrong
haunted by the future
we collective we progress
on top of the mountain
felt the water moccasin in my pillowcase
laced with liquor got my base
fire burns low this is no home
“time has left”
black lace covering my breasts
feeling feeling that ego death
feed the wolves or the dingo
feeling feeling that ego death
run run before they follow your footsteps
run run before they follow your footsteps
