Track Name: The Valley
I am the real world
I am the spirit world
in an instant there's no setback
we just light the candle
let the wax drip

i'm wondering how fast you can run past the names on the marquis in neon
so send a message with nothing to prove and pray there's wings on your god damned (new) shoes.

(Who was there when i was born/i don't know who i am)

Somewhere in my world I'll enter yours
A ritual for saving grace
watch your step now, born child
and set your pace.

The streets are now empty YEAH even when full
a token of appreciation from zero tolerance
it's a no legged dance
truth is this ship's fuckin sinking
so leave us be. i'll prove there's more than your inneficiency

i look into your eyes and the truth is already written there
a ministry for the courage to simply be
energized in trance we know whats in a name
our levitation will be proclaimed

so try to remember me ill try to remember you
Track Name: We Can Live
here is where i come in
like liquid we can live
find myself searching for knowledge
find myself searching for you.waiting for you...

i will taste love.
Track Name: Taskmaster
A dirty business so we stick to our friends...
