Track Name: Comfort
now that water is rippling, the core of your mind begins to pulse, but is it enough? now, with every goodbye, I convince myself that it's all for love. please sing with me, kindred mind. just one more time.

before the crash of the next wave
before the mountains turn into plains
I will provide a shoulder
I will provide safety and comfort

the radio tells me different
tells me I'm better off staying inside and
growing anxious
lusting for a poster child

just be sure that the feeling's real
though at times it seems, the tricks played on me
are still at work inside

for now, I'm just a beetle
scuttling out of a shit-pile
never living in fear
ever-fueled by desire

just be sure that I'm on your side
at times it seems that my gaze can be
the most absolute disguise

take one look, feel my presence
though at times it seems the tricks played on me
are still at work inside
Track Name: Road (Ring Reprise)
climbing a web of my own words / the whole story is the one thing you haven't heard / I lost my footing playing confessor's roulette / but you still don't know that yet / time passes over at your leisure / you swing on shady branches over everyone / the winds that you make circle me 'round / back to heartache under desert suns / we are empires built in a day
not built to last, but for now we will stay / in the caves of reflection, where the walls are painted / with a false claim to the land on which we lay / I can last a few months without hearing it speak / I have lasted for years knowing it don't love me / bed-ridden with the fever, we continue to dread / while an infectious melody plays in our heads
Track Name: Let Go of the Human Soul
we are few and far between
laughing our heads off at practically nothing
'cause nothing really gets me like you do
like I always try to
nestled in the groove
passed along like our clothing and virtues
I never wore anything quite like you
nestled in the groove

you come to realize after looking to the future and the past
life is eternal, just not the one you have
and this is beautiful so long as we let go
of trying to rediscover the human soul

people were shouting off rooftops
every song tickled their memories
I was looking at you from the back seat
mouthing all the words
didn't feel that cosmic
only when I stood still could I feel the orbit
we were a couple of very fine blips
on the wave of a universe

everything gets compromised when you try to link the future and the past
make all the plans you want, and for all the questions you ask
there will be answer, just never the ones you want
and even if it's for nothing, I will love you on and on

and on, after the record stops and when our friends have hit the road
to find out if their money can perfect their vision of home
the journey gets beautiful, but only after we let go
of trying to capture and master the human soul

say what you want, you're just in front of me
Track Name: Fantaxy
I wake up early, fall into line,
and have visions of another life
'til another one comes along she said,
I said, 'til another comes through my bed

see, I'm a riddle of contradictions and lies
no matter how I'm symbolized,
she said, don't worry you're doing just fine
I said, gimme one reason why

no, that's not me, it was a fantasy
there ain't nobody that can sing like me
'til another time comes along she said
I said, my time's all done and spent
