Track Name: Lost
All that I am, that I am
has never seemed to notice your heart.
I’ve got your number, I am
ready or not, I’m falling apart. (the great I am)

Even when I open my eyes
I already owe the world.
I am one of you and I am,
more than truth

But all that I can see
is already in the sea
but I made restitutions if you know.

But I guess I’m already cold.
Truth up above, raise your hands, and down below
I am a bird, I am all, and I’m coming home.

All that I am, that I am, that I am
has never seemed to notice your heart
All that I’ve got, that I’ve got, I’ve got
ready or not, it’s falling apart.

Even when you open you open your mind,
I’ve already left the world
I’m never going back, I’m never going back
I’m never going back, I’m never going back.

All that I can be
is written in the sea
but I made restitutions if you know.

I am already cold
truth up above, on your hands, and down below.
I am a bird, I am all, I’m coming home.
Oh, yes.

All that I’ve been, I’ve been, I’ve been
I never seemed to notice your heart
But I’ve got your numbers and
ready or not I’m falling apart.

Don’t tell me what I can’t do, what I can’t do.
I am part of you, and I am more than truth.

All that I can be
is written in the sea
but I made restitutions
if you know what I mean.
I said, I made restitutions!

All that I am is written
All that I am is written
All that I am is written in eternity
All that I am is written in eternity.
Track Name: Heaven Is Reconciliation
There I go
to be solved
I’ve been burdened by eyes
for too long

Let it go. Into love.
Let it go. Into love.

Newborn lamb,
you liken me to yourself
in part ‘cause I know you want one
There it goes! I liken you to myself.

There it goes
pure and soft
I’ve been burdened by my life
for too long.

Let it go into love.
Let it go into love.

Black as night
you liken me to yourself
in part ‘cause I know you got one
There it goes, I liken you to myself
in part ‘cause I know you want one.
Track Name: Microphone Ghost
All that you were, that I wanted to be
you’ve got all the things, you see.
you’ve got a lot of hold on me

There was a ghost, he was only there for us
you’ve got all the things you see
you’ve got a lot of hold on me

You’ve got a lot to hold
you hold.

There was a ghost
even though you know you don’t
believe.
I laid him down
because you know you don’t
believe.

All that you were, that I wanted to be
you’ve got a lot of things, you see
you’ve got a lot to hold on me.

You’ve got a lot to hold
you hold.
you hold.
Track Name: Sins of Division
I am seen and unseen
watch me as I fly
all that I am and am ever gonna be
is forever alive.

I’ve been wondering why
you stay with the old ways
but you’ve been apart
for too long I have watched
you stay with your old ways
sins of omission, sins of commission.

Here’s what science has done for me
you’ll never, never learn
and all that I learn is still good for me
I’m never, never, never going to die.

I’ve been wondering why
you stay with the old ways
but you’ve been apart
for too long I have wasted while
you stay with the old ways
sins of omission, sins of commission.

I’ve been wondering why
you stay with your old ways
but you’ve been apart
you’ve been wondering why
you stay with your old ways

I have been going through my mind’s eye
you know, you know,
you don’t? oh.
I’ve been visiting real worlds in my mind’s eye
you know, you know?
you don’t. oh you don’t know.
oh you don’t know.
Track Name: Where Will We Be?
When I got up
I saw them
on the banks of the river
I heard when they called.

The whole world waits
for all our sin
the whole world waits
for our offerings.

All our natures to fight
our restless souls are cursing in the night
and all our natures put right
bless us all and give us a third sight.

All of us were washed
when we laid down.
and we were released
but we came when you called.

And the sun beats down,
the sun beats down on all our skin!
and I am warmed, I am warmed
for the offering!

All our natures to fight
our restless souls are cursing in the night
and all our natures put right
bless us all and give us a third sight.

Oh like a bird. oh
you’ve been living a lie, stop it now.
(you’re free.)

Now that we climb,
we climb up the rock
and oh, I can feel us coming
when you call!

All our natures to fight
our restless souls are cursing in the night
and all our natures put right
bless us all and give us a third sight.
Track Name: Fiat Lux
These hands, all alone
and I know what they’re doing
but these opinions
I can walk and talk without moving, oh!

These hands all alone
and I know what they’re doing
and these opinions
from when I walk and talk without moving
and I am up above where I’m seeing
signs and symbols when you walk,
when you talk, when you’re bleeding

Help, help, you’re headstrong
someone is looking at your headstone
help, help, your heart’s stopped
someone’s looking, they’re looking up!

These arms under sun,
understood what they’re doing
signs and symbols when you walk,
when you talk, and you’re moving!
and a bulb is a bulb when I smell it
tiny fingers to god
and they know what I don’t understand
and I’m ready for what I am

And I hold out my hand, oh
as your body turns to dust, oh
and I hold out my hands, oh
as my body turns to dust.
Track Name: Hwy 53 North
All those expectations, come around now
they push down.
and I’ve been feeling like I might have been,
I might have been wrong.
but here The Truth sits in an atom bomb
its hummed song
and you get that feeling from what I might have been,
I might have been.

But is it ever apart?
is it ever apart?

You’ve been feeling like the sun goes,
it doesn’t go.
but Pale Sun spinning between my fingers fold,
it takes hold.
the world is bigger than you give it credit for

But is it ever enough?
is it ever apart?

Is it ever apart?
no, it’s not, it’s one thing.
Track Name: The Human Abstract
Lo, I have seen fire
but not this kind.

Fall away, fall away feathers
the arrow comes apart.

When we ascended
we opened up the gates…

of perception.
