Track Name: a shy song
I thought I had a moment / that I caught it. Now I've lost it. And I see it coming, fluttering on by.
The tip of the ice is shy / the crippled enticing sky is fluxing on consumptions, condescending on corruptions / indecisive eruptions penetrating what I know to be real / sticking a thorn within my heel. Copy a cat / catch like pants / have a fantastic...

In this blue and red shirt / blue and white shirt / fucking red shirt.
Track Name: for the most fantastic;
Alice. Catch me if you can. Run as run as fast as you can stand.
Alice. Your hair tied tightly around every strand. Who’s your biggest fan?

Why is / what is / who is at the door? Someone new / never seen before?
Alice. Get the door and wonder what you’re put here for.

Can it be? I swear I'm lost. Around here something quivers like a wasp.
Stinging, swarming, tall likewise costs. Nothing is gone / nothing is lost.

A toll / a tall / a tale / a kiss from a dove / a light that shines bright from above.
A man / named God / outstretched his hand / and told me, "I know I know this is love" / "I’ve seen it before."
"Oh. Love."

Alice. Catch me if you can. Run as fast as you can.
Alice. Catch me if you can. I'm your biggest fan.
Track Name: from the soul
Picking off the sheep; sleep is on my mind. I'm never gonna get 'em off. You're with me all the time in my mind.
Fingers in a chain-link fence. Pushing through from a trance. Tripping in the souls of my shoes; make 'em learn to dance this time.
It's time for me to leave, but it's so sad when I say "bye". All my worries flurry, scaffold-eyebrow brown eyes, love.
Love can't get lost, I'm losing all the time. You're moving so slow; I can take what's finally mine.

So talking / talking / talking / I'm nervous / you're approaching. I'm loving every sweaty, clammy-palmed moment of this time.
We're talking this time, and this time you are all mine to indulge in a teenage, human habit. Let us fornicate like rabbits until the end of time.

For the soul in my body to the laughter in my feet, bringing it down a notch is just the thing that's not for me. Crying in my heart, the whimper you shut up. Cross it in my toes, cross it in my lungs.
Track Name: window in the skies (u2 cover)
shackles are undone / bullets quit the gun / heat that's in the sun / will keep us when there's none
the rule has been disprove / stone since has been move / the grave is now a grove / the dents removed

love makes strange enemies / love makes love where love may please / soul / striptease / hate brought to its knees
we can reach the sky above our heads from our bed / if you let me in your heart and out of my head.

can't you see what love has done to me? / please don't ever let me out of here / i've got no shame.

i know i hurt you / made you cry / did everything but murder you and i
love left a window in the skies / to love i rhapsodize
to every broken heart / that cries / to love i rhapsodize. / can't you see?
Track Name: another shy song
I thought I had a moment / that I caught it. Now I've lost it. And I see it coming, fluttering on by.
The tip of the ice is shy / the crippled enticing sky is fluxing on consumptions, condescending on corruptions / indecisive eruptions penetrating what I know to be real / sticking a thorn within my heel. Copy a cat / catch like pants / have a fantastic...
