Track Name: Gone Upstream
gone upstream
gone upstream
gone upstream
to find the dirt
left behind us
left behind us

gone to see
where it could be
where it could be
my heart is hurt
what defines us?
what defines us?
i don't know

i wouldn't say
i wouldn't say
it's not ok
or too unclear
what we're doing
what we're doing

but i would bet
we'll all forget
we'll all forget
what brought us here
screaming blue from
deep in you, and
show me soul

but anytime you feel the ears are doomed
get out of that routine room

gone upstream
gone upstream
gone upstream
to find the dirt
left behind us
left behind us
i don't know
what defines us
what defines us
show me soul
Track Name: In Tune
get along, little grain
i'm living for you
prolong my stay
and i'm living for you
alter my bread
and change my head
in tune
we'll say what's never been said

get along, little fish
i'm swimming with you
on only one condition
could i swim with you
often with ease
or blood-curdling screams
in tune
all, sharing the seas

east from the city braids
in from the garden rain
soul, glowing like the morning dew
but i've seen that glow inside a dumpster too

counting the new
but every bird flew
in tune
all through and through

counting the proof
but some stay aloof
in tune, all
in tune, all
in tune, all
in tune
all through and through
Track Name: Add More
weeping moon
flashes of violence
choke it with silence
and hope for the best
before too soon
settles down with the rest
add more, add more to you

merry sun
staging your photos
silky kimonos
shining abreast
before it's done
clouds up like the rest
add more, add more to you

a tower in the middle of the desert
a hole in the middle of the sea
well you know
if i've seen one
i've seen at least two or three

empty jug
a rich cornucopia
drains into sepia
a brown-colored ale
after you're drunk
and big as a whale
add more, add more to you
Track Name: Sandwave
feel the light, but you'll never know
crying at night, but you'll never know
silent wild is twisting up your gut again
cough it on the floor, but you'll never know

love to paint it on the wall
till all those colors breathe that call

sing a song, but you'll never know
dragging along, but you'll never know
silent wild is twisting up your heart again
shoot it out your hands, but you'll never know

love to grip forever stones
but even stones, in time erode

a shifting in the sandwave
the tide is coming in
and we're gone

love to simplify your world
your ugly planet, i see pearled

a shifting in the sandwave
the tide is coming in
a shifting in the sandwave
the tide is coming in
and we're gone
we're gone
so long
