Track Name: Beast in Air, Beast in Water
You and me we're both the same.
Given a chance you'd wanna be free.
Aside from food and sleep,
I know we can find time to teach the old ways to the young,
And keep our story.

The sand feels like we're walking on balloons.
The air is stairs, our eyes are bright.
You said I still feel queasy after you woke me up,
As our fire begins to roar,
"I cannot help this feeling, I've seen this all before,
but something's different."

"Tell me that you came for me!
Cuz I've been waiting for you.
Tell me you can hear what I'm saying.
Cuz it's a long walk back to town,
And I'm a far cry from the old me"


I recall your sense of urgency,
When you heard of this place.
You knew neither crevice nor hole
could conceal you like you'd planned.
And you can paint your face here, any color you'd like.
Cuz there's a divide between this world I found,
and the weariness of our old one.


"Tell me that you came for me!
Cuz I've been waiting for you.
Tell me you can hear what I'm saying.
Cuz it's a long walk back to town,
And I'm a far cry from the old me" (2x)

"Tell me that you long for me,
That you share all of my troubles.
You get all the voices in my head are yelling!
And my friends can't hear a thing,
and I'm a far cry from the old me."

Your secret's safe with me.
Track Name: Penny
You took my penny and you dropped it down the well.
You thought it was your luck but you it let you down again.
And I blame you.
I blame you.

You took my hand and you lead me off a cliff.
I thought that i could trust, but you let me down again.
And I blame you.
I blame you.

Love please stay just for a minute
I know there's something that you didn't notice
I know you can't stay just for a minute
Cuz you're not that type.

You took my penny and you dropped it down the well.
You thought it was your luck but you it let you down again.
And I blame you.
I blame you.

Love please stay just for a minute
I know there's something that you didn't notice
I know you can't stay just for a minute
Cuz you're not that type.

You said time and time again that I'd make you run away
But I want you, I need you.

Love please stay just for a minute
I know there's something that you didn't notice
I know you can't stay just for a minute
Cuz you're not that type. (2X)
Track Name: The Hill
I was sitting in the grass
Crosslegged
When my leg it melted off.
It sank into the dirt,
But that's okay, cuz I did not need it anyway.

Whoever wants can it eat it for a tasty snack!
I think I ate pretty healthily before the time that i died.
And whoever wants can tell us that we can't come back.
But we will time and time again, to this hill.

I took the clouds for granted
That they'd always be above.
A quilt below the heavens,
An ivory oven glove.
I never missed the trees
And the folks that live in there
I never knew this hill could be the a monster ride that we'd share.

A monster who'd I'd like to know
A friend to ride on home
He could tell us not to be afraid
Cuz we just would waste our time.
And whoever wants can tell us that we can't come back!
And whoever wants can tell us that we can't do that,
But we will.

I took the clouds for granted
That they'd always be above.
A quilt below the heavens,
An ivory oven glove.
I never missed the trees
And the folks that live in there
I never knew this hill could be the a monster ride that we'd share.
Track Name: Danger in the Snow!
Proceed with caution
Your token of affection
Cuz there could be a hidden, minefield
Danger in the snow!
Danger in the snow!

Necessary steps.
Investigate your route.
Proceed with caution,
Your token of affection.
Danger in the snow!
Danger in the snow!

Mold your soul into a ball.
Squeeze it in your fist into the lines inset by years.
Protect it like a gem
Cuz sometimes it can't listen out,
Cuz someone will take it home, with them.

Once i knew someone who I thought to be true.
I knew my foolish heart was handed over,
Just out of my reach.
Danger! I had thought,
But as an ant in a bakery,
I could not get enough.
But to my surprise,
Behind her big eyes, was a thief.
A loving heart, not fit to love.
How could I have known,
That there was danger in the snow?

Mold your soul into a ball.
Squeeze it in your fist into the lines inset by years.
Protect it like a gem
Cuz sometimes it can't listen out,
Cuz someone will take it home, with them.
Track Name: Let Me In
Just to want it,
And not to need it,
Makes me let it go.
But then you let me in,
And I don't want it.
But you made me believe it.
So do I really? Do I really?

If you could you keep it together
For a moment in time?
Then you'd see that I can't be,
Your excuse for a lover.
A steep mountain to climb.
You would see.

I left my shoes under your bed
but I left my body outside.
How could I get back into this mess?
I kept telling myself the temptations would do me in.

If you could you keep it together
For a moment in time?
Then you'd see that I can't be,
Your excuse for a lover,
A steep mountain to climb.
You would see.

And I think I see this happening again
From my lonely point of view
See every time that I'm with you
I think this will happen again.
Track Name: Piece of Your Pie
I took a bite out of your shoulder
I took my own little piece of your pie
And you're so good at sharing yourself
You let it just pass by.

We clamored out through the underbrush,
Into the sunbath "We could fry!" you said.
So lay down in the leaves, and pretend not to be
A real person. Just a creeper, a creature.

All we need to do is figure out if there's something,
Like a map or a compass.
All we need to do is see a log or a ladder,
Just something we can build from!

"So it seems," you said as the first drop fell on your nose.
"That I'm always the one to carry all the weight,
I always fetch the water.
So when is it your turn when do something for me?"
"Well I'll tell you I'm sorry, I need somewhere to start,
I care, I do, so let's get up, get up!"

All we need to do is figure out if there's something,
Like a map or a compass.
All we need to do is see a log or a ladder,
Just something we can build from!

So we went out at night in the rain,
And it felt so good.
With witch-like cries we heard the animals on their side.
"I'll protect you I said I've got my knife and my wits.
But this time, this time I can't stop the creatures,
the creepers, the creatures!"

All we need to do is figure out if there's something,
Like a map or a compass.
All we need to do is see a log or a ladder,
Just something we can build from!
Track Name: Trial and Error
Yeah I was sitting in the back
Smell of cigarettes and air in the summer.
Yeah you were yelling at the sky,
Hair blowing back; I think this is freedom.

Thank you for a reason to stay, stay
I could have gone home with regrets.
But that's just how it is.
Thank you for an obvious sign.
That you'd go to these great lengths,
While I'm behind you.


yeah I was sitting in the back
Pretending not to listen to your conversation.
yeah you were trying not to cry
Telling him the reasons that you had to leave him.

Thank you for a reason to stay, stay
I could have gone home with regrets.
But that's just how it is
Thank you for an obvious sign.
That you'd go to these great lengths,
While I'm behind you.
Track Name: This One
From the highest peaks
To the valleys below
From my happiest
To the depths of my soul
I let loose a stone
And watched it fall down
No matter where it lands
But only where I am

This one's for money
This one's for love
This one's for taking everything that I've dreamed of
This one's for greed
Another for affection
How can I live without natural selection?
Let us fade away and make time for another day.

Yeah we crossed the lake
Hoping to see something
and you told me last year, that the fish were here.
Now look at my embarrassment! I led us into a trap.
I put us right on a mirror, and we can't get out.

This one's for money
This one's for love
This one's for taking everything that I've dreamed of
This one's for greed
Another for affection
How can I live without natural selection?
Let us fade away and make time for another day.
Track Name: Hologram
He watched her walk by everyday
From his eighteenth floor apartment.
And while it's been so long since he'd held a hand
That he forgot just what it felt like
To feel his bones burning inside.


Loneliness is only love's hologram.
It hangs above your head just like a star.
But when you know its burning out,
You give it one last nod and then it's gone.
Then it's gone.

Little did he know,
That she lived just one floor below him.
And when she crept inside his head,
Took control of each scenario,
He could busy himself with tasks to keep him sane.


Loneliness is only love's hologram.
It hangs above your head just like a star.
But when you know it's burning out,
You give it one last nod and then it's gone.

But the time we spend in solitary infatuation
Aren't wasted by the people we want to love
They're just absorbed into the air
And saved until the moment you're dreaming of.
You're dreaming of.

And then he saw her in the stairs
She was as real as real gets.
And then she said her name,
And he said nice to meet you
She said I feel the same
We all feel the same.
