Track Name: Spies
When we look up at the sky there's a garden of weight
But all that we can see are reflections of space
Maybe it's the way that we see that creates
All our jealousy and our fear and our hate

We're so much more than just people
We're so much more than just people when we die

In the moment that we die there are raindrops of lead
And all of our ideas disappear from our heads

And all the thoughts that she gave us
Every mystical sign
All the unlocked potential
Every prism of light

All the world is an engine
And every person is an eye
We are the universe's spies

We're so much more than just people
We're so much more than just people when we die
We're so much more than just people
But sometimes being a person is all right.
Track Name: Plums
No past, believe that I can find the answer
But I can't, because it's back at the start
So fast, meaningless, the paths that I wander
And I'm lost, because I can't find the stars

No past, believe that I can grow without you
But I can't, because you're there at the start
Painless and shameless to describe an answer
And I can, because it's all in my art
So I'll act nice when I'm given my part

Wait, something has changed
And wasted away
It's shapeless enough, and strange
Let it convey, what we betray
Our faces are art
Today, when I awake
I'll look at my face
And watch for the change
I won't, I won't look away
This place is the same
As it was before
Track Name: Bodies
What kind of wall are they building
With the weight of the Earth and the clay from the ground?
I only know that it's thrilling
But it seems like it might just come crumbling down

Hand in the water, hand to the sky

What kind of plans are they making
With the shape of the world and the heart of the town?
I only know that I'm shaking
Vibrating around makes me solids and sounds

Drink all the water, reflect the clouds
Sleep in the garden, make pretty sounds

Hand in the water, hand to the sky
Breathe in our bodies, we'll never die.
Track Name: Holes
Black smoke, spaces in the holes
Valleys where nothing ever grows
Mild mannered people making messes
When the masses break the mold
But nothing ever grows without holes

Shapeless shapes I know
I'd escape them, but my legs are too slow
My mind is turning in pain, as I try to run through my brain
I'm a child of wheels who's never rolled

Black smoke, spaces in the holes
Soft snow blanketing the world
Valleys where nothing ever grows
Valleys where nothing ever grows
Track Name: Trees
Everything she ever was, it's all there
Everything she ever was, it's all there
Everything she ever was, it's all there
Everything she ever was, everything I've ever loved
Is out there, somewhere

Carry me away like a seed
Make sure she lands next to me
Watch as we grow into trees
And become the air that they breathe

We're all decomposing all the time
And everything else is growing as we die
Track Name: Crystals
There's no easy way back, everybody is chained
Take a look at the town, try to become the change
I don't wanna react, I don't wanna react

Make a meaningful sound at a reasonable pace
Take a measure of blood for each measure of space
Watch our bodies react, watch our bodies react

We're all on the attack, everybody's insane
We'll take over the world just to make it safe
I'll just point out and laugh, I'll just point out and laugh

Not a cloud in the sky, no more life in the planes
Take a measure of Earth, try to make it rain
I don't wanna react, I don't wanna react

There's no more going back, everybody is chained
Take a look at the Earth, and imagine its pain
I don't wanna grow back, I don't wanna grow back
Track Name: Grow
If I find a place, nothing but space
Just traces of greatness
I won't look away, it's just a face
It's shapeless and weightless

That's why it's matter
Because it matters to me

I'm the same way, nothing is straight
Be speechless, it teaches
If I find a place, lifetimes away
I'll reach her, I'll reach her

That's why it's matter
Because it matters to me

I wanna grow, maybe then fear won't find me
I wanna grow up to be extra mighty
Maybe I'll show up to take you all with me
Somewhere slow, where we can all be happy
