I was mourning the loss of something wonderful when I saw her first And I was old and I was cold and I was in need of a bright light to guide me and I saw it in her face And I was afraid I was raised by heroes but I wound up dying anyway It wasn’t a loss unless you think about it that way ‘Cause lives are only fun to watch in the action replay One worthless wish Infinitely repeated It was dark And I sold my soul down the river He’s a taker, then he’s a giver The Devil knows the value of everything he trades And I was wandering ’round through the sky like a scared little bird And then I heard The sunset was roaring my way like a freight train coming The wisher keeps wishing when the drummer stops drumming One worthless wish Infinitely repeated…

Away 03:20
Little child in the corner Waiting for the ice to show Little child in the corner Waiting for the wind to blow Away The sadness that he saw in his mother’s eyes Away The sadness that he feels when he hears her cry Away Little child in the corner Waiting for the world to freeze Little child in the corner Waiting for a winter breeze to blow Away The strangeness that he saw in his father’s gaze Away The strange things that he dreamed in his childhood days Away

River 04:41
Time flows past us, we’re all standing still We’re pebbles in a river of years With the illusion of motion towards a salt-water ocean But erosion should be one of our fears as we lie here Tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock Don’t you wanna go back home? Hope remains the tiniest particle reminding us Never to obey the facts You seal your mind against it and when you think you’ve fenced it It comes creeping through the cracks Tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock Don’t you wanna go back home? Time flows past us we're all standing still we're pebbles in a river of years

(Well I married me a wife She gave me trouble all my life She ran me out in the cold rain and snow Well I've done all I can do Oh I've done all I can do Rain and snow... She ran me out in that cold rain and snow) Well I married me a wife She gave me trouble all my life Run me out in that cold rain and snow Rain and snow Lord She ran me out in that cold rain and snow Well she come on down the stairs Combing back her yellow hair And her lips were as red as a rose So like a rose Lord And her teeth were as white as a rose "Well I've done all I can do Trying to get along with you And I ain’t gonna be treated this-a-way Not this-a-way Lord No I ain’t gonna be treated this-a-way" Well she come into the room There she met her fatal doom And I ain’t gonna be treated this-a-way

Like No Moth 03:11
Don’t be scared I’ve got your back And I will be prepared To protect you I will never leave I’ll make them sorry That they ever breathed Upon your glory. It’s okay I’ll shelter you And keep you covered As my hands subdue The way you hovered As crepuscule loomed And something lingered In the gloaming air That sounded like an evening prayer Now like no moth That’s ever lived I’m drawn to darkness now It’s all you give to me And yet somehow Your dusty memory Like focused rays Outshines the sunlit lights of days

Change me now Don’t be afraid I’ll show you how I’m not like I was made So break me down I am not real Undamaged bones Those never heal So cut me now, oh I’ll reconnect to you Kill me now, oh I’ll resurrect for you Sculpt the man Rocks turn to dust Dispersing and Mix with the rain To form the clay I will adapt To see the day I’ll be the shape you need So cut me now, oh I’ll reconnect to you Kill me now, oh I’ll resurrect for you Take me now, oh I wanna go with you Change me now, oh I’ll disappear for you

No one to saw the faith away Dismantling those bones No one becoming like the day The desert sand of home -------------------------------- Absence leaves a hole A strange, cold, terrible domain Although it haunts the soul Old pain protects against new pain Wild was my intent The greatest war you could ignore Old pain is heaven-sent To land upon this earthly shore My poor heart is terrified That’s the gift old pain provides Every cautious word is inscribed In cuts along the walls inside
8.
Watch out for the way I’ll be with you And watch out for the things I’ll do to you Watch out for the words I’ll say to you You know I’m gonna play with you You know that I will be your friend You know that I will make you bend I hope that it will be okay for you There’s nothing I won’t put you through You know that I would let you drown You know I’d even pull you down If you put your faith in me You know that I will set you free

He likes to put his food in the microwave for hours at a time And when it comes out it glows with a kind of iridescent shine And he claims that when he eats it he gains wisdom of a kind As if the radiation it’s been infused with does something strange to his mind And I think it’s the microwaved food that did things to the dude that science just can’t prove Like, removed his soul and left some kind of hole where something should have been but nothing -- There was nothingness present there in his eyes The existence of a vacancy, like clouds in cloudless skies Clouds in cloudless skies… And when I asked him for his story he told me of a glorious day When as much in doubt of getting out he prayed to fade away and he said to himself "The molten sun is where my ending should begin" And a superheated chrysalis engulfed him from within His voiceless voice rang out across an empty placeless place And his faceless face was obfuscated by a see-through outer space And he said, “Don’t take that hot ambrosia out until you hear the chime ’cause if you leave one second on that clock my dear, you’ll just be wasting time.” Clouds in cloudless skies…
