Lyrics

1  // Circuitry

verse:

Later on tonight, there will be no up or down, won’t know left from right

Was there nothing else that you wanna ask about before taking flight

chorus:

Cause I can barely wait to stare down upon the divide

In between the blue and green where all the waves and land collide

verse:

Is the circuit fried, call the mission off for now, wait for help to arrive

If it never comes, gonna have to figure out how to last the night

chorus:

But I hope we get to stare down upon the divide

In between the blue and green where all the waves and land collide

Will I feel the loneliness we were warned would arise

When glaring back upon the waning world if you’re there by my side

bridge:

There’s something else going on with you and I

Confusion I can’t overcome but I don’t wanna try

Come twist yourself a little tighter inside the circuit we make the light with

Can’t say I’m afraid of the dark now, please stay hit the switch be my spark now

Just cuz we’ll never define don’t mean that we should deny

Love and illusion are divided by a little line

It’s only seen with closed eyes and an open mind

I go to grasp but just like the last time I can’t hold it in the hand that I write with

There’s treasure hidden around, and it can only be found

When we stop looking for signs and put our trust in the sound

2 // Dueña

verse:

What’s gonna save us now that we know

The mystery we been chasing could never be controlled

Too late to make it up as we go

So have come and lay by my side and we’ll watch the end unfold

chorus:

No more searchin, askin if it’s worth it

Just want to cure the way the modern world had me

Hooked on the lie that were really alive

verse:

We have arranged our own overthrow

Without any natural enemies made one on our own

Became the makers, soon we’ll be ghosts

Made most of our time as planet earth’s temporary hosts

chorus:

No more searchin, askin if it’s worth it

Just want to cure the way the modern world had me

Hooked on the lie that were really alive

Cant blame reversal of fortune or a curse for the

Way that it hurt when you looked behind the curtain

But now you’ve arrived, now you’re really alive

bridge:

Go natural, bare in the pond that swallows up the waterfall

A final time because tomorrow may not come

Science and spirit now are one

I take it all in though i believe in none of it

verse:

Lay back and thank god, take out my phone

Recording the falling water but i don’t know what for

chorus:

No more searchin, askin if it’s worth it

Just want to cure the way the modern world had me

Hooked on the lie that were really alive

Cant blame reversal of fortune or a curse for the

Way that it hurt when you looked behind the curtain

But now you’ve arrived, now you’re really alive

3 // Little Gardens

verse:

Look how quietly we went, never thought we’d let it end

Told ourselves that it would last till tomorrow

Waved goodbye to all your friends, waited till it all made sense

Put it off and now you’re left with tomorrow

chorus:

Say no, let it part and keep peace in your little gardens

Have faith a little love is all it ever takes to get it started

Give away your pardons, look after your little gardens

Be sure a little love is all it ever takes to get it started

verse:

Oh how quietly we went, we let it break before it bent

Put it off and then it passed till tomorrow

Made it all up as you went, you made enough to pay the rent

Had them sure that it would last till tomorrow

chorus:

Say no, let it part and, keep peace in your little gardens

Have faith a little love is all it ever takes to get it started

Give away your pardons, look after your little gardens

Be sure a little love is all it ever takes to get it started

bridge:

Give away your pardons, look after your little gardens,

Be sure a little love is all it ever takes to get it started,

Give away your pardons, look after your little gardens

Be sure a little love is all it takes

Because it’s hard to see the shadows lining up outside your door

4 // Bomoseen

verse:

No need to apologize my dear, I must have made a face or something

Made you think my mind had wandered off to stuff aside from this beautiful fire

but i am fine the party’s thumpin baby, wear this if you’re cold

 

Our predicament is one that we’d be smart to sort

Before November’s any more than just a couple hours old

chorus:

Remember when I first arrived, the mountainside was drenched in green

Paid no attention to the clock now here we are on Halloween

We shed our souls of their disguise by simply saying what we mean

And now we’re left with something special near the breezy shores of Bomoseen

verse:

It’s an inopportune time to smile but

Girl you look so gorgeous in your black cat costume

Anyway where were we by the way, hey, thanks for driving

Let’s just get this out the way and make the most of love we’ll leave behind

chorus:

Remember when I first arrived, the mountainside was drenched in green

Paid no attention to the clock now here we are on Halloween

We shed our souls of their disguise by simply saying what we mean

And now we’re left with something special on the breezy shores of

 

Cuz if we’re callin this goodbye, it doesnt mean we gotta grieve

Might be the end but just for now so kiss me once before i leave

Could only guess the date and time, at least we know where it will be

When we can finally sort the beauty on the breezy shores of Bomoseen

outro:

Won’t find a better way to mourn the modern masterpiece we made

Than to book it to the shore Route 30 north back up to Bomoseen

5 // Constellations

verse:

If the rumor’s true we’ll never see another moon 

Like we’ll see tonight if skies are clear

Children press their heads on windows past their bedtimes cause

They’ll prob’ly own a spaceship by the next time there’s a sky like this where

chorus:

Not a single constellation we were raised to recognize

Can be detected in the haloed cosmic haze with human eyes

verse:

Think that you’ve got problems babe, be grateful that you’re here

The people near the stars we see been dead for a billion years

Now as they did unto us we raise a glass and laugh

We’ll join them soon enough as dust and be one with the landscape above

chorus

Where not a single constellation we were raised to recognize

could be detected in the haloed cosmic haze with human eyes

i wonder what the constellations would look like from the other side

takes a heavy dose of darkness dear to really see the skies

bridge:

i know i’m coming off casually, but i’m hiding how carefully

i do select the words i use in times like this

cuz if i’m gonna go on and describe it girl i would be wise to

kick it on back a notch for my protection

so i try but the moment i catch your eye my soul is centralized

i’m delivered right back to the here and now reminded how

there’s so much beauty in brevity, there’s a reason why gravity

is keeping us here for now with this perspective as 

outro:

a misty blue bedazzles the horizon’s outer edge

a night so close to perfect only is so as it ends

6 // Oblivion

verse:

We made it up and out into another

Level lookin back upon our mother

Earth has made it more than worth the wait

Took off into the sky but man we nearly

Didn’t make it out the atmosphere

You felt it too a force from underneath

chorus:

We’re given to and taken from

The world unsure of what’s to come

Within this iteration of the game

verse:

We’re fading in and out of signal now

We’re waiting on the word to get back down

Into the orbit before it’s too late

 

Start prayin to a god we don’t believe in

Everything is shaking ship is weaving

Asteroids are scraping us, escape we must now

chorus:

We’re given to and taken from

The world unsure of what’s to come

Within this iteration of the game

 

Our difference equal to the sum

Delivered to oblivion

No greater and no less than how we came

bridge:

The water we awaited lies below

And growin fast to sizes that

Our minds could never comprehend

It makes a splash it cools our toes

Alive reminded nothing goes

Forever without coming to an end

outro:

Encapsulate the quiet all

Around you now because the call

Is coming through much sooner than you think

7 // Massive Letters

verse:

Rest here on the shore I’m off to look for bright new

Colorful shells near where we wrecked

Been more than a year since we’ve seen any ships out

At sea or planes up overhead

 

Each new innovative take on communication

with the outside fulfills but fails

Sucks but it’s okay love, come on keep your head up

Believe that one day we’ll prevail

chorus:

write HELP in massive letters, one day we’ll catch the eye

of a distracted astronaut somewhere in the sky

let’s scan your book of mantras for something new tonight

but we’ve got work to do right now as long as it’s bright

verse:

Here’s a coconut for you to open up once

You’re finished sorting through the reds

Funny, woulda thought by now we woulda grown bored

Of fresh seafood and golden sunsets

chorus:

write HELP in massive letters, one day we’ll catch the eye

of a distracted operator of satellites

thought it would be a struggle to keep our spirits high

good thing each other’s all we really need to get by

bridge:

we smear the shells apart now, and separate them by their size and color form the palette that will comprise

a most divine collection of shades and shapes that i will help you with selecting which one goes where and why

coordinates and contents, combined with patient tries, lead somewhere but for now let’s decorate someone’s skies

verse:

No good ever came of worrying and waiting

for miracles to come around

So what if we’re 0-fer, this fight isn’t over

Wont ever quit until we’re found

CHORUS

Write HELP in massive letters, one day we’ll catch the eye

of a distracted astronaut somewhere in the sky

thought it would be a struggle to keep our spirits high

good thing each other’s all we really need to get by

8 – Decide

verse:

Would you look outside today

Would be ideal for your inauguration

The mountain air so crisp will surely assist us

Ask if I’ll join you on your ride

Know what you’re sayin but it’s probably best to dive

Alone head first right into the abyss now

chorus:

Turn out the lights so I can show you what I mean

Just close your eyes and listen if you want to see

The kinds of colors typically reserved for dreams

verse:

Turn your gaze out to the lake

I hold your hand and watch you take in all the shapes

Your brain’s been moved to bake into the landscape

You’ll soon forget the whispered lines

Of wordless wisdom that you patiently imbibe

Can’t be repeated but you’ll be reminded sometimes

chorus:

Turn out the lights so I can show you what I mean

Just close your eyes and listen if you want to see

The kinds of colors typically reserved for dreams

So while you’re gone decide for me

I need your balance near to be as fearless as I claim

verse:

Now that you’re filled dmt-ified

Feet back upon the ground

You found your peace of mind

If you would be so kind would you see me through mine

chorus:

Turn out the lights so I can show you what I mean

Just close your eyes and listen if you want to see

The kinds of colors typically reserved for dreams

So while you’re gone decide for me

I need your balance near to be as fearless as I claim

9 // sunlight

verse:

Out from your mouth hearin echoes of myself

But i try to drown them out

Open my mouth but i cannot make a sound

Cuz you beat me to the truth

Now all i can say

chorus:

I only see you from the outside

Hard to see clearly through the sunlight

Cant help but wonder whether

The clouds are ever gonna let up

And let us see things as they are

verse:

Out from my mouth hearin echoes of yourself

But you’re tryna drown them out

Open your mouth baby whisper me the sounds

That you know i need to hear and you want to say

chorus: 

You only see me from the outside

Hard to see clearly in the sunlight

Cant help but wonder whether

The clouds are ever gonna let up

And let us see things as they are

 

We only see it from the outside

Cant see it clearly in the sunlight

Cant help but wonder whether

The clouds are ever gonna let up

And let us see things as they are
