Track Name: Aphid Angels
I don't think you are
How broken you are
But the thought of your cares is becoming clear
If my mind would let me tell you I could never be whisked away
Drunk on pearls and overestimated grace

I know, I know
Hold me close
Like you used to, like you want to
But I could never know

My eyes
They strain
To see past your pain
And understand your uncertainty

I know I never can do anything right
I see flashes of feet
Wandering 'round in the night
And I wonder if they're watching me
Hovering silently
I hear them hum
In my dreams

Angels, demons, beggars and heathens
Oh I hold them all so close
Calling, falling in feathers and darling
Fill my head with poems

Behind us are the days we lost
Drifted away at the sunset's cost
But the ocean glides on
Let bygones be bygones
And just forget about them all

I found a letter in a book from 1983
Titled to my grandmother
Saying the wedding went perfectly
And she asked
How everything was holding up
And she asked
Can you get through your stuff?

I wish I could see the light in your eyes
Dance about in the rain, watching time fly
If my mind would let me tell you all the things I see before I sleep
You'd dismiss me and send me with the sheep

I know, I know, hold me close
Like you used to, like you want to
But I could never know

My legs, they fall
Please make sense of it all
I yell to the birds
In the sky

I look towards the rain, to the sun and the wind
To the grass and the ants
Hoping that they would send
A ball of light, an end to fights in everyone's head
Replace it with a love as strong as gin

Hold them all!
Hold them all!
Remember what they did
Their palms as soft
As wings of aphids

Hold them all!
Hold them all!
Remember what they did
They stuck by your side
Till the very end
Track Name: Colourful
Into the forest we go
Covered from head to toe
In dandelion dreams and worthless snow
We emerge from the rain
We emerge with scars and bloodstains
But everything is going to be alright
I made sure of that tonight

What do you intend to do
Your thesis statement was a fluke
Though stable your heart melted
Chess pieces became bold again
And we collapsed into the deep dark ocean

Static reaches out to me
Chopping lightly in a circular flee
Like dry lips and shoulder stains
A blessing in the form of rain
And sadness gave away to the saying

Colourful like a toucan's beak
Forward please go to the mountain
Speak soft so softly yearning for the touch
Smiles, soft palms almost

You know, you know
It isn't so
That you can go anytime
Just run my dear

Myths and planets seem to collide
They're supposed to bring them together
And yet they divided
Listen to the planets
Listen to your mind
You can find faith in your own kind
Cherished ones come from all sides

Colourful like a toucan's beak
Forward please go to the mountain
Speak soft so softly yearning for the touch
Smiles, soft palms almost

You know, you know
It isn't so
That you can go anytime
Just run my dear

The grass told me your story
I'm sorry it didn't end that sweetly
Wrap me in a cave of colours
Let the bengal tigers watch our dance along with the ghosts
Drunk on the moonlight
Crying out at the wonderful sight
Sink the ships with generosity
Turn around preventing atrocities
And ribbons escape from your lungs

In a world that gleams
With shooting stars
And tangerines
Golden fields and immortal trees
We live in the ocean's breeze

Colourful like a toucan's beak
Forward please go to the mountain
Speak soft so softly yearning for the touch
Smiles, soft palms almost

You know, you know
It isn't so
That you can go anytime
Just run my dear
Track Name: Pomegranate Lullaby
The night has come
Crystals erupt in the sky
Cuddle up
It's time for the day to say goodbye

Let the grass' arms
Wrap around you so tight
The cold is gone
Close your eyes
Enable your dream sight!

Pomegranates break open
Sending sweet omens
Of doves and fleeting wishes to the Earth
You'll never know how much you're worth

Friends!
I will never let you fend
For yourselves in the wilderness
I'll come rescue you under the moon

Friends
I'll rescue you from the snow
And I will sew your clothes
Though I can't even handle a thread

I'll stay with you until the end.
Track Name: (Outro) I'll Come Back
If you're hiding in the world
If you're hiding in the world
Go and brush back your hair
Let them see your eyes

If you're hiding in the world
If you're hiding in the world
Go and brush back your hair
It's ok if you cry

We all grab your hand in ours
The water's cold but we dive in
And they all warned
That we can catch the flu

Everything here and everything there
Pulled across the pond and dear
I was only four, you know

I held her close
I never let her go
My childhood fell into the snow
I was only four, you know

If you're hiding in the world
If you're hiding in the world
Go and brush back your hair
Let them see your eyes

If you're hiding in the world
If you're hiding in the world
Go and brush back your hair
It's ok if you cry

Love yourselves, everybody hold your tails
And love yourselves.
