Track Name: Frost & Ember
Obsequious cinnamon sticks,

I've seen a man itchin' your eye,

Stick with this and you'll never feel the twitch.

Thaw my, thaw my

Thaw my ember is frozen (x4)

Frozen in motion

Thaw my, thaw my ( x8)
Track Name: Chimera
It makes no sense to me at all (x3)

Why try to say it's different,

When it all just sounds the same,

Reinventing the wheel is pointless,

Regression is just as insane,

Just as insane. (x3)

It makes no sense to me at all (x5)

Why try to say that it's different,

When it all just sounds the same,

Lets opt for a recourse,

There isn't a choice in the matter at hand,

You've got to make it your own.

The classification made me realise,

We need to hybridise,

Boundary lines, no dividing,

Spread the wealth a bit,

Tear the walls down.

Then there'll be occasions,

Where both ends of the spectrum meet,

And move in synchronicity,

They belong together.

And it's lack of dimensions

Made me realise we need to hybridise,

Boundary lines, no dividing,

Spread the wealth a bit,

Tear the walls down.

Then there'll be occasions,

Where both ends of the spectrum meet,

And move in synchronicity,

They belong together.

Though my body will not mutate,

The chimera will set you straight.
Track Name: Scilati
Simmer...in the sun.

Pavements of gold will never get old,

Rivers of red run down my throat,

Was it melon or melancholy my minds eye interpreted,

The sky is mauve and my soul is at rest,

But it cries out for more.


It cries out, it cries out for more,

It cries out for more,

It cries out, it cries for more,

It cries out for more.


This is my second wind.

Simmer in the sun,

(Scatting)

Simmer...in the sun.
Track Name: Hemangioma
Read my allusion,

My contusion is alarming,

Or so it would have been.

Don't look me in the,

Don't look at me in the eye,

Don't look at me.

So...I,

Deformed as a child,

Only slightly but what can I say,

Was I supposed to be born this way,

Is it a question of faith,

Call it intelligent design if you wish,

But the truth does not exist,

We aren't supposed to be obvious creatures.

Watch your prying eyes,


Do you surmise that there's only one general type,

Of beauty, I'll never believe,

That one should have to ask themselves the question,

Am I ugly?

Needless to say the facade is crumbling.



People are frightened by what they don't understand,

I am not an animal,

My life is full because I know I am loved,

I am human. (Repeat x3)

Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder,

As I am beholden to the people that matter the most,

Families, friends, lovers,

And the faces I've yet to discover,

Live life to the fullest,

No half measures, play endlessly,

Bear that in mind for the next time I see you.
Track Name: M9
Sleep,

Sleep indeterminately,

'Til I awaken, I fear nothing (x7)

Sleep,

Sleep indefinitely,

I'll be wide awake when I see you here for the last time.
