Deep, Well 03:29
Under your skin, where I can't kill the air My injection, when I been banned from this land Swear I won't seep into your secret subterranean somewhere to sleep And it may seem strange to you, but it's perfectly normal to me And it may seem strange to you, but it's perfectly normal to me And I feel afraid for you... Under your skin, I am a living hell Now I begin, well, to insinuate myself, deep Inside your life hides your secret subterranean somewhere to sleep And it may seem strange to you, but it's perfectly normal to me And it may seem strange to you, but it's perfectly normal to me And I feel afraid for you.

strength was your first desire having always been quite small... next you needed wealth and riches for ultimate control... anyone would have made those wishes if the djinn had come to them and yes you've been a tyrant but somehow you stayed a friend... somehow you stayed a friend but there were things you couldn't do still, tastes you couldn't touch 'cuz then someone might see you and they would see too much... they would see too much... your first and second wishes did some damage, made me wish that bottle never had been found but you're the one whose wishes were granted and I can't wish that bottle back into the ground... it got dark out then but I didn't lose you, not until you turned invisible... dark in here, no, not until you turned invisible, until you turned invisible, not until you turned invisible, man... and although you could not be caught, it was also just as much that you never had to look yourself in the eye, you only had to watch, and although you could reappear at will, you've forgotten how with time, and all those who once looked up to you now lock their doors at night, yeah, it got dark out then but I didn't lose you, not until you turned invisible... dark in here, no, not until you turned invisible, until you turned invisible, not until you turned invisible, until you turned invisible, not until you turned invisible, until you turned invisible, not until you turned invisible, man

Botany 04:07
indigo is for the twilight amber's for the firelight blues are for the sky and seas for botany, the verdigris white, white is the stone red, red is the blood red, red is the blood for the ink and the midnight for the sweet sunshine for the dark and for the tar for the shimmer on the water for all the animals and galaxies for all the family trees indigo is for the twilight amber's for the firelight blues are for the sky and seas for botany, the verdigris for the ink and the midnight for the sweet sunshine for the dark and for the tar for the shimmer on the water white, white is the bone red, red is the blood love, love is the glow

Moon Song 02:33
yeah and the way she's on you can feel her pulse riding with your own yeah and the way she flows with the moon does it hold her back or spur her on? might have been a memory might have been a man (back when, the fatherman) might just be the wind along the limbs but I just keep wishing you'd listen (you'd listen) so you be wise son, she's loving another age in these machines, she's not at home she needs the night alone to give it to the moon

Let It Roll 04:15
It's not money anymore, it's never money anymore When you let it go - Hey! You don't throw it at the floor, you don't just throw it in the hole, Let me show you, Here let me show you! You got to let it roll, let it describe a spiral, oh, Let it spin instead of just dropping it in... I follow the prophet to the chain motel, The crowd becomes a congregation And in his hands there is a wishing well! To live a life of service is a virtue, Out on the island we all get by just fine And we won't see you be thirsty When we're all throwing in, doing everything to keep it growing... To keep it growing. It's not money anymore, it's never money anymore When you let it go - Hey! You don't throw it in the hole, you gonna throw it towards the floor? Let me show you, Here let me show you! You got to let it roll, let it describe a spiral, oh, Let it spin instead of just dropping it in... The followers collect to hear him tell it, Poolside I see the demonstration. The Man in the Panama speaks with his hands And the wishing well expands... To live a life of service is a virtue, Out on the island we all get by just fine And we won't see you be thirsty When we're all throwing in, doin everything to keep it growing... To keep it growing. You got to let it roll, let it describe a spiral, oh, Let it spin instead of just dropping it in, Instead of just dropping it in...

It beats down, unrelenting, Record indices. As predicted, we sizzle, melt or Finally crumble. Oh well! You think we've got it bad? At least we're not with the frozen or the flooded. Oooh, they've really got it bad. Mercy, misery. We grow dark, metacystizing. Skies in negative, sublimated. Finally we feast. Blood or bread, man? I'll take some of each. Oh no! Suddenly horrified, We face another blaze to our systems. We cannot douse it enough to cool Our burning furnaces. Oh Hell! Isn't it underground? Not when you believe in evolution. Oooh, we are tunneling underground, Mutate, meditate.

See me at ground level, This is how I get around Two wheels + a frame, this is my only chain so stay practical, Participate in the struggle, Continue to renovate + reinvent + dream every day like it might be shaken awake again, Ok be slept on but stay lucid, way prescient, Be real or irrelevant. That's fine + I ride, swoop + climb, never collide + I'll be on time And in play; and never any love lost along the way. Yeah so you say, so try to explain the faint Flicker, once a flame, feels like... only yesterday. Increments inch away + turn visible as pixels Or crystallized grit on a screen that was backlit. Built it up in my mind, Our city in the sky; I arrived digitized Tryin to break new ground, you break only bones, lookin like the ground is winnin for now. Hollerin mouths keep talkin shit, pitchin zip you keep diggin Ditches so shallow, better look down - you're trippin. Whole crew, ship of legalized clones, DNA dehumanized, gangs of true GMOs, In for the assist, rust resistant, Ok grow crops so high, you know You're only answerin to Monsanto. Today you innovate, push product, hop traps But I can't say I'm convinced you're steerin this ship out the straits. People peddlin pedo, sick/disrespect raps or the most joyous of choruses all elates + deflates us, so Incinerate your manifestos. You're only turnin with the times; I cycle like this cuz I'm Millenia-head of mine. Shamanic levels as of yet not ascended to, yeah better look down + ahead while pedalin around potholes + dead ends (Ahem) I.E. Devices that might self-ignite, Sent to rend all asunder, To render any progression, Limbs akimbo in rigor + Creepin like a procession in halftime, The bridge + the breakdown, Corporeal takedown, No elegy, finality, No fucking recovery.

Ocelot On 02:09
ocelot on the precipice and the science is beyond my comprehension and i think i might just be the last that is the feeling climbing up this tree the ultimate in unattainability lost a little sparrow through my teeth she's still within reach... ocelot ocelot on the precipice and the science is beyond my comprehension and i think i might just be the last that is the feeling that is the feeling that is the feeling

we lost an hour in the morning that we borrowed from the sun, some months ago where has the day gone? flying past windows as blue as shadows some of our clocks are wrong I'm saving daylight for another day another darker night when the green all leaves the trees oh, for a rainy one what's that say about me? all time, no energy ain't it the other way 'round? we were no farmers but we had our gardens and we waited on the rain it gets a little late, it goes a little long yeah flying past windows as blue as shadows some of our clocks are wrong flying past windows as blue as shadows some of our clocks are wrong
