Track Name: Moon
The moon is looking bright and full
She brings the tide in just for me
Gazing at her craters on the beach
Longing for her celestial body

Good night moon
I'll see you soon
Oh when the sun has gone
Good night moon
I'll see you soon
Oh when the day is done

The sun I hear him laugh at me
As I'm sweating on the street
Oh what a bright white angry beast
Its so hot I can hardly breathe

Good night moon
I'll see you soon
Oh when the sun has gone
Good night moon
I'll see you soon
Oh when the day is done
Track Name: Escape and Re-entry
Stock up on food and oxygen then count down to ignition
There are voices on the radio orders from mission control

With a heart of steel and silicon
The engine fires and then I'm gone
Hotter than the sun hotter than the sun
Start my ascent at the count of one like a bullet shot from a gun
Hotter than the sun hotter than the sun

Radar follows
Your blip as you float there
Lighter than air

There's nothing left this side of mars
I've seen it all I've gone so far
Hotter than the sun hotter than the sun
Land this tin can on the rusty ground
Be the only man when I set her down
Hotter than the sun hotter than the sun
Track Name: Simian Rock
Monkey tones in your skull
Vibrating little bones
It's already there
It permeates the air
Static every where

Where are your market shares
when you are dead and no one cares

Animals driving cars
Wearing suits, waging wars
People turn and sway
In an ape-like way
Do it every day

Where are your market shares
When you are dead and no one cares
Track Name: Visible Man
Fresh mud on the carpet
Drying in the sun
From the window pane
I haven't left this room
In what seems like days
Am I the only one
Who does things like this

I want to
Be see through

All in all I think I still believe
Yes the world is slowly killing me

Knee deep in my own catharsis
Stepping on my thoughts
Hoping it will rain
Maybe even flood
And wash us all way
Is it wrong to think
That could be OK
Track Name: Sun on the Street
Summer is a dead man walking today
Dead in his tracks the seasons will change
I will not cry a single tear
I promised myself I wouldn't this year
Sun will go down it's always the same

Too cold to go play in the sun
Say good bye to the fun everyone
Locked inside and I'm losing my mind
My swimming pool froze over last night

Summer just wont be the same
Say goodbye to the games we played
Some will grow old and some move away
But what ever happens the players will change
I guess that's how everything is

Too cold to go play in the sun
Say good bye to the fun everyone
Locked inside and I'm losing my mind
My swimming pool froze over last night

Remember the heat
Of the sun on the street
And the words that you said
Summer is dead
Track Name: Icarus
Searchlights burn the sky
There is no heaven anymore
Just satellites and airports


Good bye we leave tonight
If you can get off the ground
Don't fly too high or you'll get shot down

In front of me I see the stars
They shine so bright on darkest nights
Through blackest space a billion miles

I'm awake but I can dream
Among the beams of silver light
Of Saturn's rings and martian skies

I wanna fly like Icarus
But these plastic wings don't do the trick

The clouds divide the open sky
I will posses this weightlessness
Even when I die

Searchlights burn the sky
There is no heaven anymore
Just satellites and Airports

Good bye we leave tonight
If you can get off the ground
Don't fly too high or you'll get shot down
Track Name: Cactus Splinters
Cactus splinters in my bones and I can feel the pain
My mouth is scorched and I dying of thirst for
The thirst for something sane
The vultures fly overhead and they're picking at my brain
I got nothing, nothing left, nothing to my name

Go tell the boys I've gone out west to die alone
I'm never coming home again
I think I'll hang my guns up for good just one this time
Go tell the sheriff that I'm dead
Track Name: Animal
I don't know why
It's the sky
It's just blue

As you're choking on your ghost
You'll finally get the cosmic joke
Chuckle softly as you sigh
The punchline's in the grand design

Hope I come back as something else
Like a fish or bird or elk
Far away from urban hell
Somewhere I can be myself

I don't know why
It's the sky
It's just blue

As you're choking on your ghost
You'll finally get the cosmic joke
Chuckle softly as you sigh
The punchline's in the grand design

Hope I come back as something else
Like a fish or bird or elk
Far away from urban hell
Somewhere I can be myself

I'm an animal in closed
Brick and mortar steel and stone
Bury me in naked bones
Cause when I die I'm going home
Track Name: Light Headed
If your head could pop like a big balloon
Thoughts like rubber pieces on the floor
I would breathe in every molecule
Sailing on your brain waves to the shore


Affection is a ghost we like to touch
A phantom pain that haunts you when you're born
This sea of many peoples can be rough
So we search for something soft and warm
Track Name: Wet Blanket
A broken heart and a broken face
No one seems to relate
A crooked smile and a clockwork brain
A simple mind for a simple pain
My complexion looks like glass
I'm looking out you're looking in
I've been cursed with something else
Since I got that see-through skin
Drag my body down the road
Leaving footprints in the snow
But it don't matter where I go
I'll always be invisible
