Track Name: Orange Sky
We have sailed the orange sky.
We have scaled the solar wind.
We have bled the summer dry—
Held the means but sought no end.

We have named forbidden names.
We have uttered the untold.
These were our immortal games—
Played for glory, not for gold.

We have fallen for the ground.
We have reckoned with the dead.
But when the tables turned around,
No words remained that need be said.
Track Name: Trouble
Under cover of rain
In the whites of the skies
Say it loud, say it plain
Before everything dies

In the absence of light
Even memory steals
Steals away into night
Upon vertigo wheels

'Neath the skeleton trees
Into shadows we spin
That’s the moment we know
The trouble we’re in

In the blue plasma flash
With your cheeks powdered pale
Ride the thunderbolt crash
With the wind for a veil

When we stand in the clear
With electrified skin
That’s the moment we know
The trouble we’re in
Track Name: Kozmik Eye
Blood moon like a ruby shining;
bright wing of a white bird flying.
Cold Wind, she will tell you nothing;
red stars, they will send you searching.

A dream like a violet window;
a place where the light is shadow.
Blood moon like a ruby shining;
bright wing of the night bird flying.

I am the eye eternal:
one, watching from all directions.
I know like a perfect mirror—
no sight; myriad reflections.
Track Name: Cassiopeia, 2016
Instrumental
Track Name: The Grand Theme of Things
I walked across the field
Just as the moon shone down
It touched my face
I was on my knees
And everything was blue

Then the clouds came in
And the thunder crashed
And a big black dog in the sky
With teeth like glass...

I don't know
Where to go
The world just seems so strange to me

Get me out of here
Get me out of here
This is not my world...
