Cup & String 04:57
I don't think you're going to want to leave your ghost behind for too long, you're gonna have to get it back. A daydream, you know, can only last for so long, gonna want to get it back. If this is Paradise then I wish that I'd known sooner. Now I'm just this old dusty mound, you can see the faults in my high ground. You're out in the street, dancing lonely. Your pockets are vibrating, but where is our cup and string? And on the day of the Paradise if you're still chasing yourself around, then surely you'd only want to live once you're floating above the ground. Out in the grass, the Earth is trembling. Now I'm just this old dusty cloud, and you can see the faults in my high ground. You're out in the street, dancing lonely. Your pockets are vibrating, but where is our cup and string?

God dang, I've got a problem. I can't feel my stomach because the Earth is spinning way too fast. Oh Boy, we've got a problem. Having trouble seeing through all of them lies. Good gosh, we've got a problem. Listening to the sirens going all day long, the stench in the street, it's way too strong. It's like we are dancing. Taking one step forward, taking two steps back. We are drinking Tigers' blood.

Peat Bog 06:06
In the long line of all the great sea lions, how bout those today, they can't lay on an iceburg. Tossing up on dry land, turning green. To the Toltecs and the burned away, here come those alien eyes. Sipping on the cinders the wolf is born under same sky as old time. Underwater with Golden Eagle this is not a dream, no, this is swimming. We knew these tides, they'd hit the clouds. And Lord knows time is a blister, time is a geyser. To the Toltecs and the burned away, here come those alien eyes. Sipping on the cinders the wolf is born under same sky as old time. Take a walk on the desert shore, there's very pretty, extra large fossils. The giant sea creatures all done with their war. And at the end of the ocean riot I don't need my bones where I am going. I found out something of the human race. It's not a site to see. No, no, no, it's a tragedy. We knew these tides would hit the clouds, and Lord knows time is a blister, time is a geyser. You can pull my teeth you can have them all. I don't need my bones where I am going.

Awoken at dawn with the bullets and bombs, you are dusty, bloody and cunning. You are running through the flames in the woods. You don't make a sound. Then, shwish swish shwish. The arrows are flying through the smoke in the air, you are killing the white man, you are killing the American. You are saving your babies, but they are already burning and beaten by boot to the head, and you're getting shot through your medicine. Then you fell four more soldiers. They don't know your name, they don't know who you are. Everywhere you go, the ground is hot lava. The river is on fire, and if you make it out of here alive, you're gonna die in the New World. So you're running without a name, the winter wind stained on your face. When you finally reach your tribe, look at the fireball flying through the mountain side! They gonna chase you down. You don't have a home anymore, you don't have a home life. So gather the warriors, gather the holy ones, gather every single thing you've got because you're going to war. Everywhere you go, the ground is hot lava. The river is on fire, and if you make it out of here alive, you're gonna die in the New World.

You come and see me when I'm asleep. Yeah, you come and see me in the dream. Then you leave me in the morning. How am I supposed to live and grow old, if I'm asleep? This ship seems like it is sinking, with all these leaks, it's no wonder we're barely space traveling. Scientists are saying, "welcome to the dirty future". Everyone is whispering, "last one to die, shut out the lights". Are you underground yet, or out to sea collecting miniature suns? Are you on a mountain? Or have you found out about vortex traveling? Scientists are saying, "welcome to the dirty future". Everyone is whispering, "last one to die, shut out the lights"....... I am standing out here in the fenced in yard like a dog that is staring out, up, and into the sky, dreaming of wilder lands. Today, I am an observer of insects, and a watcher of birds. Tomorrow, I'll be an alchemist. Tomorrow, an underwater explorer. I am pacing around like a cat in a cage, yawning and stretching, dreaming of wilder lands.
