Track Name: Lady
Lady can’t you see your getting older

Lately blue eyes been getting colder

In the autumn of my night I want to see you shine a light

Maybe maybe you could have saved me

With the charms, chakras you gave me

When the leaves fall to my face

I’ll rise in your elected grace

There was a time I walked in your shadow

And the winds of autumn blew my hair to and fro

But now the creek bed’s dry like a heart in the holler (lol wtf is this)

And I feel I gotta let go

Now I can’t see for the forest

Dry veins, dead tree spread

Drag my nails in the dirt

Lift my weary head
Track Name: Cosmic Lunch
Did you ever hear the story of the sweeping yellow sun?

He swept the dusty stars away, he shot them with his gun

His name was Ra Jones Hathaway, nobody liked him much

He burned real bright in the cold midnight, his skin was hot to touch


When you're on break, go and eat your cosmic lunch (2x)

Did you hear the sailor's legend of the moon in tidal war?

He pushed and plied the oceans so he could settle up the score

In the night the red sky warned us that the devil's in the air

Then the moon caused some disruption as he tumbled down the stairs


Did you hear the nighttime fable of the nebulas in love?

How they unleashed their passions in the heavens up above

Their screams rang out in silence in an echoless space air call

As they reached their epic climax, the meteors did fall
Track Name: Stone Frog
Sunshine seascape libido, love on the beach is primo.
Track Name: Silver Buckle
Curious peace about irregular revolution

Denial closes peculiar institution

Ain't got no house to call my homestead

Suffering soldiers bleed out their greenbacks

No kind of comfort but gin and ex lax

Don't have no soul to help and breed me

Though the devil may care, at least someone does

I'll rub my silver buckle for good luck just because

Sit at the feast with friends fellow wastrels

The good at heart ain't good enough in fables

Can't find no drugs to stop my heartbeat

We are the hollow men stuffed with straw, alas

Behind the tears, greed, lust, its all past

Don't need those gods to make me humble
Track Name: Astro Cannibalism
Thunderstorm of astral gas

Shell of heat too dense to pass

Time is nothing now is all

Process forming after fall

Worlds collide, war turns to naught

Planetary lovers caught

We will ride (across Carona's tide)

We will ride (onto the otherside)

We will ride (where no man shall abide)

Struggling through the dense Horsehead

Once was live, but now so dead

Fragment teeth and neuro-pods

Corpses of the ancient gods

Spiral debris undulate

Solar light a billion years too late
Track Name: Gannymead
Scaling on the photosphere

Red sun god, red sun god

The wrinkle in spacetime is here

Red sun god, red sun god


Riding on the condrule's tail

Praise be Ra, red sun god

Past the secret supernova wail

Praise be Ra, praise be Ra

Air infected

Light reflected

We're all rejected

Last of skin race

Seethe in dryspace

Frozen doom face

We're not lost, we know where we're going

To the arc, where the fields are glowing, going
