Track Name: Lonely Bones
Lonely bones come alive
Whispering stories about life
Time has forgotten them
Tell me your secrets now
Before we all forget
Track Name: A Perfect Day
These bananafish
Manifest themselves
In ways I would not know

It's a perfect day
For my bananafish
It's a perfect day
For my bananafish

Trees come back for me
Though I wish they'd stop
Mixing memory and desire

People don't understand
Swear on my honor
Swear too much anyways

It's a perfect day
For my bananafish
It's a perfect day
For my bananafish

She made me understand
Why I had to die
Track Name: Darker Doings
The strange soft-lipped cry for help
Begs for reinforcement
In the other world

Tremors of the unseen sky
Know not what they're doing
Rain will fall tonight

Darker doings
In dark room lighting
Temptress calling
Unresolved

And just when the thought arrives
Lights will shine beneath me
In the camera's eye

Feels flustered, dawn, oh no
Morning solves our problems
Don't you know

Darker doings
In dark room lighting
Temptress calling
Unresolved
Track Name: Nothing's Changed
I saw you out on the streetlight corner
Recognized the fire in your eyes

Nothing's changed from then
Nothing's changed from then

I watched you run away from me again
It's funny how you run away from us again
Backwards to the people who will hurt you
All we want is for you to smile again

I wish you'd see what you've become
Clinging onto memories won't save you now
Your past is gone, your future's over
Now you're standing all alone

You don't have the time to remember
All the things you've done to push me away
It's funny how you try to run away from your sin
When you know you can't run away from yourself

Nothing's changed from then
Nothing's changed from then

I saw you out on the streetlight corner
Recognized the fire in your eyes
As you took another step away from us to them
As you took another step away

I wish you'd see what you've become
Clinging onto memories won't save you now
Your past is gone, your future's over
Now you're standing all alone
Track Name: Isolation Tank
Tonight, I'll lose myself
I'd like for no one to help
I find there's nothing within me

Emptiness is a means of its own
Distance me from what is real
Isolation tank is my home
Beckon me back to escape
Solitude, what a lovely sound

A sigh
Repent of your sinful mind
Isolation tank
It's why I'm alive

Tonight, I lost myself
I thought I wanted no help
I found there's nothing within me

Emptiness is a means of its own
Distance me from what is real
Isolation tank is my home
Beckon me back to escape
Solitude, what a lovely sound
Track Name: Fields of Rye
And in the end I
Stand here poised to cry
She spins over and by
I catch in fields of rye

Please make up your mind
I still can't decide
What good is this life
Phonies cast it aside

Horse paint fades to white
I let out a sigh
They won't listen – why?
I catch in fields of rye

Please make up your mind
I still can't decide
What good is this life
Phonies cast it aside
Track Name: Collect Call
Insert coin
Return call
Punch in codes
Talk 'til dawn

You'll never find me
I will make sure
I am nobody
Forever yours

Collect call
Reverse thoughts
Love through wires
Powers off

You'll never find me
I will make sure
I am nobody
Forever yours
Track Name: Angel
They're all around me
I can't escape now
They won't believe me
I'm not one of them

I'm not an angel
I don't belong here
What the hell is going on?
Get me out of here

Midway through our life
I found myself in dark woods
For the straight path was lost
Can you rebehold the stars?

I'm not an angel
I don't belong here
What the hell is going on?
Get me out of here
Track Name: Persona
Put up a front
Leave before you see
Persona
Changing

Watch out
Or I'll drag you down
Don't approach me
Persona draining

I swear to thee
We shall fly beyond this isle
The corners of the world our mere prologue
If I could, I would

I'm not alone
That's the sad thing
How could we all
Be so tempted?

You control my world
And I adapt to yours
When it's all done
We've slipped back into...

I swear to thee
We shall fly beyond this isle
The corners of the world our mere prologue
If I could, I would
Track Name: Illusionist
You try to fix me but
I prove elusive and
You don't know what you've done

I'm an illusionist and I don't know right from wrong
All I ever wanted was someone to love
And I'm sorry it all came down to this
Maybe in another universe
We can meet once more and
I can start again and
It will be okay

One day I hope you'll try
To understand the
Reason why I've gone and
Forgive me once again

I'm an illusionist and I don't know right from wrong
All I ever wanted was someone to love
And I'm sorry it all came down to this
Maybe in another universe
We can meet once more and
I can start again and
It will be okay
