Track Name: Control
Frame rate is slowing down
Random twists; it's all on now
Flights scheduled on the ground
Pick up
Pick up the remote

Blocked in a square wave
Sined in and sawing away
Masters are slaving away
I know
I know how this works

(He who can create control can control creation)

Pass me the envelope
Delays synch to eighths notes
A little noisy on the microphone

Pass me the envelope
Delays synch to eighths notes
A little noise on the microphone
Adjust
Adjust your expectation

Challenge accepted, met, Kees closed.
Track Name: Talking Over Apologies
These words hit hard like a fragmented melody
Into my hands and through my fingers

These words tumble down like so many hollow pipes
From my hands and sing like crystal

This grace I need gets whisked away from me
Like blowing sand, it can't be captured

This face I thought was mine is staring back at me
With closed eyes; I don't know her

And the apology that sounded so beautiful in mind
Crashed to the floor like broken wind chimes
On frozen ground

These confessions break like the string that form my words
Held aloft on fragile cords of tact

This is guilt is guarded like my eyes behind the window
Staring out at sound in motion

I watch them fall, and even as I reach to catch
I can't hold them all; I can't hold them up

I watch them fall, and the ones that I can touch
They scratch me up; they cut me up

And the apology that sounded so beautiful in my mind
Crashed to the floor like broken wind chimes
On frozen ground

And the hipocrisy of what I am trying to say
Bring me down from my self righteous perch

And the apology that sounded so beautiful in my mind
Crashed to the floor like broken wind chimes
On frozen ground

And the apology that I thought would bring you back
Sank to dirt like so many wasted tears
Track Name: Pardon
Turn and tilt
And I missed the point
Pulled away
And it took me days to figure it out

Saved me guilt
I'll chalk it up
To moral grounds
So deeply etched and charcoal stained

Tighter, tighter
'til I collapse

Tryin to squeeze the life out
To stop this shaking
Take it back a ways to stable
Heavy blanket over shock stricken hours

On and off
Seven times
That's a lie
Worn out wires connect at intervals


Beg it out
Relay the thought
Didn't I answer it already
In my head

Tryin to claw my way up
To something graceful
Take it back a ways to stable
Heavy trinket hanging low at my side

Tryin to squeeze the life out
To stop this shaking
Take it back a ways to stable
Heavy blanket over shock stricken hours

Tryin to squeeze the life out
Stop this shaking
Take it back a ways to stable
Heavy blanket over shock stricken hours

Tryin to claw my way up
To something graceful
Take it back a ways to stable
Heavy trinket hanging low at my side
Track Name: The SleepWalker
Little instigation
Cords of silk
Pull you up
Into hallways
Open doors
Throw you out

My determination
Casts a light
Across the tiles
Into hallways
Frozen floors
Slow your feet

Faint light (under the door)
Feint right (as it opens)

A momentary disconnect
Begs you in
Begs you in

My imagination
Magnetic pull
Forward march
Into the doorway
Flashing arcs
Assault your eyes


My determination
Controls your breath
And feeds your blood
And past the chaos
The air is still
Ringing ears

Faint sigh (was that you?)
Faded sight

Little instigation
Cords of silk
Walk you home
Pure exhaustion
Numbs your mind
You can't fight

My determination
Bends your legs
And plants your
The darkness beckons
Welcoming
Holds you in
