Track Name: The Inward Self
i keep falling the way i did before
i'm just doing it more
and i'm still burning the way i did then too
i'm starting to burn through

in the light of love i saw the inward self
in the light of love i saw the in
the inward self

i don't have the will to just bend down and thank god
i can't even thank max brod
i just want to take a moment to save a bit of this and you
i like them a lot too

in the light of love i saw the inward self
in the light of love i saw the in
the inward self

(hum be dow, hum be dow...)
Track Name: Time (Make it Work)
floating backwards through an upset mind
there is nothing left to you but time

time, time, time, make it work (x2)
why, why, why, won't it work
time, time, time, make it work

contorting with every falsity
yearning shambles never set you free

time, time, time, make it work (x2)
why, why, why, won't it work
time, time, time, make it work

time, time, floating backwards...
Track Name: Shake, Don't Shiver [SDS/SD]
the wondrous stereophonic of your supple effusing motions careening everywhere inbetweening all the while weight drifts to dust

all your boarded windows now a fountain of fantastic debris ripped ruthlessly from broken frames by real feeling ghostly children grab your palm lead you in the voice of the sun

shake don't shiver, shake don't shiver, break your body quake don't quiver (x4)

all of your delusions are delusions of delusions and your body movements are thunderclaps in bobby pins strewn in scattershot about turning all the earth's dirt to mud

your busted lips purse to kiss blood on those who forget when sky was just sky and no implications glide within hopes are tinged aggressions and thoughts are just misplacements of time

shake don't shiver, shake don't shiver, break your body quake don't quiver (x4)
Track Name: Birds of Genet [Perseus Vibrain was Captain...]
my heart's in my hand
and my hand is pierced, and my hand's in
the bag, and the bag
is shut, and my heart is caught

soul strings plucked on porcelain
her fingers are washing away
in memory novocaine
again
falling backwards like the spring
softly awakening
somewhere the birds do sing

my hand's in my heart
and my heart is pierced, and my heart's in
my hand, and my hand
is shut, and my heart, is caught

soul strings plucked on porcelain
her fingers are washing away
in memory novocaine
again
falling backwards like the spring
softly awakening
somewhere the birds do sing

birds of prey, birds of genet
birds of genet, birds of prey (x4)

[birds and man solo]
Track Name: Mandala's Golden [Mandala's Golden]
golden one
you woke up
a little freaked out
a little sussed out
by the winds of time
by the pangs of night
but now you're okay
and that's how you'll stay

mandala's golden (x4)

you're the one
who comes up
when the odds are down
when the lights are out
you put up a fight
you dream green inside
and you know you're way
and it's all okay

mandala's golden (x4)

(repeat verse 1, chorus, get trapped in C)
Track Name: Soul Dawn [SDS/SD]
pangaea highway; we are the ones
pangaea highway; eternal tongue
soul dawn, soul dawn
pangaea highway; you'll find the one
open the windows in the rain
what's done is done
soul dawn, soul dawn
pangaea highway; we are the ones

and down our highway we are one
and on our soul day we are one (x2)

pangaea highway; our sacred guns
blow us away, low looming ones
soul dawn, soul dawn
and washing waves of neon days
prune all our thumbs
caressing wind upon our face
drive on the run
from soul dawn, from soul dawn
pangaea highway; we are the ones

and down our highway we are one
and on our soul day we are one
here comes the soul dawn, here it comes
here comes the soul dawn, here it comes...

Track Name: Oh! Always Be True
scarpered sunset, moonlight unrest, cowering like a dog
when you wake and begin to shake off the shipwreck dawning fog
look into the mirror baby; don't you love what you see
isn't it a miracle baby just the way you look and see

oh! always be true
speak for yourself
be only you
be no one else
be just you, don't be nobody else

idea's ashes, time just passes, through begrudging nights
books of words and words of sound and darkness never light
but look into the mirror baby; don't you love what you see
isn't it a miracle baby, just the way you look and see

oh! always be true
speak for yourself
be only you
be no one else
be just you, don't be nobody else

no one else could take that thing away
the way you take the world on every day
no one else will take that thing away; promise
no one else will take that thing away

oh! always be true
speak for yourself
be only you
be no one else
be just you, don't be nobody else
Track Name: Jostling [Perseus Vibrain was Captain...]
we are heaven on dead streets the spotlight spots on you and me

(repeat countlessly)
Track Name: You Came Alone (Redux)
you came alone
and you're on your own now where do you roam
you came along
and your song came from the wound where it all begins

never going to end
never play that cadenza
you know what then

you went alone
and you're on your own now where do you go
you went along
and your song came from the wound where it all begins

never going to end
never play that cadenza
you know what then

madame golden has gone
madame golden the sun

you came along, you came alone (x4)
we know your song, we know your song (to fade)
