Track Name: Musicophilia
I risked my well being just to play with it
To learn its tangled mystic ways
We'll dance the tango and find out who will lead
Hoping I'll master this in time

Musicophilia Musicophilia da da da da da da da da
Musicophilia Musicophilia da da da da da da da da da

We flock together, seeking shelter from-
It's bold feathers they steal our eyes
It lifts us like balloons, a million clouds in the sky
I wonder who will reach the blue

Musicophilia Musicophilia da da da da da da da da
Musicophilia Musicophilia da da da da da da da da da

I can see you'll be around you know we mix so well
Can't you see we're baking now, it's time to flee this town
Track Name: Solo
If you must leave us, you have deceived us
So blow on the coals while you go-
On with your needle and thread
Go sew, solo

Now weights are tied around your arms
They're paper thin but that's their charm
You'll choke on paper, it grows thick
Farewell my friend, farewell farewell

If you must leave us, you have deceived us
So blow on the coals while you go-
On with your needle and thread
Go sew, solo

If you're busy running out of time, you're better off alone
If you're busy running out of time, you're better off alone

Hold onto your eyes, they'll fall out on this journey
Hold onto your eyes, they'll fall out on this journey

If you're busy running out of time, you're better off alone
If you're busy running out of time, you're better off alone
Track Name: House Love Ground
Keep your umbrella dry
Sweep all of your options aside
Folks who choose to rely on

House
Love
Ground

Stir your cider, hope you can find her
No ones looking, smiles all around
Empty pockets wish you would fill them

House
Love
Ground

Girls in white dresses, turn quite grotesque
When they're batting eyelashes, raising their glasses
Curls down to her waist
This is the new phase
I bet that worm lied lines in your brain
Track Name: Twisted Music Box
Stuck in this music box
Twisted this music box
Go round, go round

Music has brought out the darkness in me
Why am I dark?
Twisted

I like to hide behind lyrics and rhymes
Hoping with this, I'll be fixed

Someday will we peak on this journey of the mind?
Minds with melodies?
Ooooo
Stirring from my insides, with muffled harmony
I will coax the caterpillars and rise them to the surface

Stuck in this music box
Twisted this music box
Go round, go round
Music has brought out the life in me why is that-
I'm still
Twisted in my music box
Track Name: Red Raw
I saw a ship coasting safely through sea
On it were hopefuls to gorge on their feast
If you are wise you'll do what it takes
Grip with your fingers till they're red raw

Ahhh da da da da
Ahhh da da da da da

If you are wise you'll do what it takes
Grip with your fingers till they're red raw

One hundred years will pass, grace lost with sweat
We strive through the bitter sea with burden on our backs
If you are wise you'll do what it takes
A steady open fire with your bloodshot red eyes

Ahhh da da da da
Ahhh da da da da da

If you are wise you'll do what it takes
A steady open fire with your bloodshot red eyes
Track Name: Dancing Brain
There's a ball inside my brain
It floats around or hides away
Cackles with delight and chaos
Will it burst or can it be tamed?

Pour my body through a strainer
Left behind are bones
When did I become a stranger?
I am still alone
Oooo ahhh...

Cut through these demons like a samurai
I will rise up I will be victorious
Cut through these demons like a samurai
I will rise up I will be victorious
Cut through these demons like a samurai
I will rise up I will tame the beast
I am taming the beast
I am taming the beast
