Track Name: Behind the Lamplight
The sky becomes a stone
The faithful sink in bakalite
But you are not alone
Behind the lamplight
Behind the lamplight
This is where the love is kept
Beyond intuition
This is the mask that hides the godhead
Karma haunts the living
The sun becomes a hole
And the criminals are petrified
But you are not alone
Behind the lamplight
Behind the lampight
So lay the morphemes down
And forget the crying shame
Forgive the thorny crown
For the pennon of blame
Behind the lamplight
Behind the lamplight
And karma haunts the living
And karma haunts the living
Track Name: Quadraverse
He can't get it together anymore
Is it so hard to feel alive
The apples are poisoned in the garden
And every snake will hypnotize him
He's baptized in the sand
That counts away the hours
He's blinded by the sun
Is this the afterlife?
Bathe me in your eyes and put this quadroverse to rights
Is this the afterlife?
Or am I still in plato's cave
Can't look away
Am I young enough to tempt the gods
Am I old enough to shed this skin begin again
And what is death but love that never ends
The jack goes back inside the box until it's tempted out again
You delight and terrify me
Knock me down and then revive me
Is this the afterlife?
Bathe me in your eyes and put this quadroverse to rights
Is this the afterlife?
Or am I still in plato's cave
Can't look away
Is this the afterlife?
Burn it down with shiva, turn it all around
Is this the afterlife?
Pull me out of plato's cave
Can't look away
(Magic mirror am I fair enough for you)
You delight and terrify me
Knock me down and then revive me
You delight and terrify me
Greet me with your arms held widely
(Am I fair enough for you)
Track Name: C.M.I.A.A.P.
The swinging pendulums
Tides of evolution
The birds and the telephones
Catapults and Gatling guns
A kiss I can’t recall
A piece by mozart
Flies in a plastic jar
We’re not who we think we are
So reckless and care free you must think you are immortal
My chromosomes are treasonous and yet I feel normal
How much closer can heaven get, it’s like you’re standing in a greeting card
We’ve let this planet go to waste, we still have time to make a fresh start
I know why
The fallen angel sings
She can’t seem to spread
Her phantom wings
Every desire deceives me like a paper tiger
But I’m not done yet
Every desire deceives me like a paper tiger
Don’t be a stranger we can see this through together
Back and forwards never had a sense of reality
Push and pull me I can’t seem to take it slowly
