Track Name: Metropolis
Metropolis

Voice 1: At the center of the world there's a hole where the center should be. Where everything stops. When the world spins the world tilts and we all fall off and out in to space...

Voice 2: She said, "Organize the people."

Voice 1: Deep out in space there's no air. It's okay; we've evolved into things that don't breath...

Voice 2: She said, "Everyone should know."

Voice 1: We time travel silent and dumb to the start of this whole impossible trip...

Voice 2: She said, "Bring to me your questions.”

Voice 1: We try to ask our Gods who's to blame for this horrible thing. We fall asleep...

Voice 2: ”These answers I have been told."

Voice 1: In the dreams our Gods come to us and they laugh and they dance and they sing...

Voice 2: "I'd like to build a fountain in the center of the world."
"These ordinary people have no need for golden girls."

Voice 2: She said, "Grow a tiny garden."

Voice 1: At the center of the world there's a hole where the center should be. Where everything stops...

Voice 2: She said, "Make the people smile."

Voice 1: The end of the world is a sign we know we should read. We've forgotten to see...

Voice 2: She said, "If you let it harden",

Voice 1: so close up your eyes open your mind. Wasn't it all worth the ride?

Voice 2: Then your heart will surely die."

Voice 2: "I'd like to build a fountain in the center of the world."
"These ordinary people have no need for golden girls."
Track Name: Complicated Mind
Complicated Mind

You met a day, people say
It’s an unattainer’s life

You met a fate on holiday, promenade
You walked on fire

And I fell into
Arms so round
Bring me up
Put me down

Where will it lead, to a dream
Of an automated life

You’re the disease for the cure
Girl it makes us unalive

And I fell into
Arms so round
Bring me up
Put me down
Swear my mouth is open wide
Swallow the entire night
Not a trace of this place left behind
Not a trace of this space or this time
It’s all there in your complicated mind
Track Name: The Ottoman Girl
The Ottoman Girl

In the foyer of her Hotel room
there’s an Asian pair in the easy chair.
Eating Turkish fig filled ma’amouls
in another room. Scent of sweet perfume.
Conversation is preoccupied.
Feign a look outside. Fascinating eyes.
If you’re tired you can go to sleep.
Very indiscreet. All the people leave.

She offered me tea
The end of the world
My head’s in a whirl
The Ottoman girl

A couple a piece
Some more if you please
As white as a pearl
The Ottoman girl

Missing pieces have opened up
my porcelain cup and the tea has leaked.
Dripping down on her heck inside
of her silk elbise. Fascinating eyes.

She offered me tea
The end of the world
My head’s in a whirl
The Ottoman girl

A couple a piece
Some more if you please
As white as a pearl
The Ottoman girl

After all the ma’amouls were gone,
in the early dawn on the Ottoman.
Track Name: Henrietta Lacks A Smile
Henrietta Lacks A Smile

Henrietta lacks a smile
Henrietta’s all the while
Henrietta lacks her ears
Henrietta’s gone for years
Henrietta lacks her eyes
Henrietta’s always nice
Henrietta didn’t know
Henrietta grows and grows

Henrietta nobody knows it was you

Henrietta lacks her hair
Henrietta doesn’t care
Henrietta lacks a face
Henrietta’s been every place
Henrietta lacks her heart
Henrietta does her part
Henrietta lacks her head
Henrietta are you really dead?

Henrietta nobody knows it was you

Could have been any one
You were the chosen one
You might just save every one
Track Name: Flowers
Flowers

I’m amazed at the sound around you
And your language of half-truth
Broken vase is a cause to tend to
White bouquet and super glue

Flowers
Words you say are like flowers
They’re floating away

Falling down on the ground around you
Make me sneeze and desire you
Wait a moment you’ll be televised
All undone we can run blind

Prayer beads adorning you
A keepsake from a sadder fool
A sweet kiss from a siren unknown
Dried out from Sun rays

Flowers
Words you say are like flowers
They’re floating away
Track Name: Whither Fare Thou Be
Whither Fare Thou Be

All of these things we fear
Shake them off of your shoulders
Whither fare thou be
Thou hath made me a soldier

All these dreams and only 4am.
Fall asleep and fall in love again.

Can you see me here I'm floating.
Hypnic jerking. A crash landing
She was splayed across the ceiling.
Track Name: Revolutions
Revolutions

Home in a madness with nothing to do
Most of the ceiling is falling on you
You jump across never looking behind
Sit on the edge and play never mind
Just to see if they fall in a well
I've never felt this soft in the day
She's always rolling around in the dew
Revolutions and the venting of youth
She sent a warning to caution my eye
A wave and a welcome will soften in time
Tips for me if I play in the subway
Isn't this feeling discomforting you
Curse the morning a song and a fool
Isn't this feeling discomforting you
Track Name: A Drop In The Ocean
Drop In The Ocean

Mariana
How deep have you been?

Salted water
Licked off of your skin

How does it feel to be a drop in the ocean?
You already know

Floating quietude
Ice melts in the rain

Mariana’s
Cup filled to the brim

How does it feel to be a drop in the ocean?
You already know

Waning moonlight
No shadow to seize

Rhythm Ocean
Mariana and me
