Track Name: Invisible Man
I don't need a number to talk to god
Don't want no guidance from an invisible man who won't return my calls
It's so easy to turn and point the blame out of this world
Don't know why you don't think to take matters in your own hands
But maybe that's the difference between you and me

I realize I don't understand everything about this way
But more people have been killed in the name of god than any other thing
So why would I join with the murderers?
That's the only difference between you and me

Faith will never cradle me
So don't you tell me what I should believe
Faith will never cradle me
Don't you tell me what I should believe

How does hypocrisy taste?
It must be so sweet
Sight before my eyes open
Like a blanket all around me

You know i'm all for the ones who practice love
All for the all accepting ones

Faith will never cradle me
Don't tell me what I should believe
Faith will never cradle me
Don't tell me what I should believe
Track Name: Scarecrow
I'm lost, I'm lost
In the devil's backyard
And I'm feeding the crows that your body brought along
You're gone, you're gone, you're long gone
But that's no difference to me

You're the scarecrow living in my heart
You're the scarecrow living in my heart

I've dug, and I've dug all the holes 6 feet under
To bury your memory in
But I cannot forget you, and nor will I let you
Run off with the person I once was

You're the scarecrow living in my heart
You're the scarecrow living in my heart
Track Name: The Martian
The champion stands in the way
Becoming fire and space
Staring at the galaxy before him
Gazing through every infinity

Below us is cold, cold, cold
But the sun has not shut
And the days are old, old, old
And you're gone from me now

The cosmonaught descends to the earth
To the adoration of the dreamers
A cry from universal wounds
There is no god here now

Below us is cold, cold, cold
But the sun has not shut
And the days are old, old, old
And you're gone from me now
Track Name: Emilea
Hearts a liability without a soul
No motivation, no far off goal
Along the concrete river roll
My Hearts a liability without a soul

Oh Emilea
Nothing sits still anymore
Emilea
The stars so far behind

Everyone's left to other paths
the birds in the sky dream so fast
I'll find gilded wings to take me up
A messenger I can see far more clearly

Oh Emilea
Nothing sits still anymore
Emilea
The stars so far behind

Dirty ice water in my veins
No make of ground
No make of gains
Dirty ice water in my veins
No make of ground
No make of gains

Oh Emilea
Nothing sits still anymore
Emilea
The stars so far behind
Emilea
Nothing sits still anymore
Emilea
Everyone else is gone
Track Name: Beautiful Bones
I love you from a distance
I love you like rain
I want your love all over me,
Wanna bathe in all your pain
And hold you beautiful bones
you have such beautiful bones

I'll find a way to know ya
I'll take ya home with me
I'll find a way to show ya how to please someone like me
In ways that no one know
I'll kiss your beautiful bones

You're so ugly when you fight me
You're so pretty when you cry
Wanna feel your heart again me
Wanna hold you as you die and go where
No one knows
You have such beautiful bones

Wanna be the one you scream for
Gonna take your breath away
Wanna be that gun you reach for
Gonna take the pain away and hide your
Beautiful bones away where no one knows
Track Name: When The Strange Bird Sings
When the strange bird sings
All the night graces her majesty
And I know all my troubles can wait for me
On the other side of sleep

When the strange bird sings
And I see her wings
Yeah I know one day I will be able to fly
To whatever's calling me

When the strange bird sings
I feel myself drifting farther away
And with each breath she takes
I am lifted from the sorrows that my own mind creates

Oh strange bird, keep singing
I will surely find my way back to you
Track Name: Velophiliac
I'm a velo fellow
a Velophiliac
It is likely that you'll catch me in the act
Of pedaling my bicycle down and back, down and back
Of riding my bicycle all through the town

I ride my lady every single day
And never is there a gas bill to be paid
Oh if there was anything ever to happen to her
I'd be shit out of luck, and screwed out of love

I'm a velo fellow
a Velophiliac
It is likely that you'll catch me in the act
Of pedaling my bicycle down and back, down and back
Of riding my bicycle all through the town

Oh all these hipsters, they could never know
How darkly, deeply my affection goes
And those wheels that I put on her
So curvy, bouncy, yeah she can take a beating!

I'm a velo fellow
a Velophiliac
It is likely that you'll catch me in the act
Of pedaling my bicycle down and back, down and back
Of riding my bicycle all through the town

And those beautiful handles on her top
I love it how when I squeeze them she will stop
On a dime, on a dime, so sublime, so sublime
That breaking system really knows how to honk my horn

I'm a velo fellow
a Velophiliac
It is likely that you'll catch me in the act
Of pedaling my bicycle down and back, down and back
Of riding my bicycle all through the night
Track Name: Hinterlands
Wasting away in a haze
and I'm a part of the hinterlands
Fog drenched empty towns
but that's alright with me

Renewed days, been washed by the rain
new visions from an old window pane
I've been traveling, traveling for years
and my mind won't sleep at night

Once in a dream I was the empty child
Gears keep winding, grinding, going
The years keep ticking, mocking mimicking
But I've heard stranger things before my time

You think you've seen all there is to be seen
and then one day you're surprised by the eyes in the mirror
Oh the darkness doesn't lie, I find
The silence will follow me

Once in a dream I was the empty child
Gears keep winding, grinding, going
The years keep ticking, mocking mimicking
But I've heard stranger things before my time
