Track Name: Bumblebee Hero
Minds are made of ancient thoughts
Hints of words that never talk
And so it goes
The child knows before he's told
Twists and gnarls as he grows old

And so it goes
Stars and planets explode
through time intangible

See the bumblebee
His roaring wings
His violent sting
See the hero in the light
Soar bumblebee
His majesty
The tyrant king
Come to capture my love

The sun is still so young
But stars only live so long
And so it goes
Life on planets unknown
Surely know, twist, gnarl as they grow

See the bumblebee
His roaring wings
His violent sting
See the murder in his eyes

"The bee", my baby screams
"Has come for me and he's angry!
He smells the pollen on the wind!"

And I don't know why
But I am the one
I don't know why
But I am the one
Track Name: The Wendigo
There's a full moon on the winter's gloom
And the pale and snowy hinterland is vast
"Oh this fiery height! Oh my burning feet"
He screamed above the old and dark forest

And then the sun came out and I was someone else
It's over now, I was someone else

It weren't his walk and it weren't his talk
This daguerreotype is not my old friend
The Wendigo it shook him so
And ran with him in space defying strides

And then the sun came out and I was someone else
It's over now, I was someone else
Track Name: In Crooked Dreams
Gotta give Rylan Pushor credit for the "waaaah ohh" parts. That little part made the whole song a lot better. Thanks Rylan.

Hey you babe
You wicked thing
I'm on to you

Hey my skin
Is wearing thing
I'm on to you

Hey my babe
My crooked thing
I'm on to you
For you I came
I came for the awnsers
for the cure to cancers
that's been growing in our thoughts

You're there my babe In crooked dreams

All the world is crumbling
I saw you in the dust
Of broken lives
Through teary eyes
In dark and shy disguise

Hey my skin is wearing thin
I'm on to you
For you I came
I came for disaster
and I stayed till the last hour
Till our minds were soaked in rum

You're there my babe in crooked dreams

All the world is crumbling
I saw you in the dust
Of broken lives
Through teary eyes
In dark and shy disguise
Her solemn face is smother a crack of heathen smile
In crooked dreams my darling sings
A lust soaked lullaby
Track Name: Summergoths
I'm feeling dumb in the heat
Cool as can be

My girl sparkles
My girl is down at the beach
Summergoth in the sun

My mind sparkles
My mind is off at the beach
Chill as fuck in the sun

I got a heart you can't beat
Demin jackets in the heat
Cool as can be
Come on and shine down on me

My heart sparkles
My sorrows out of reach
Swallowed by the deep

They're going to bury me
Out at sea while I'm asleep
Just wait and see
I got her hips held tight for dear life
I never wanna lose this sun
Track Name: She Moves the Clouds
"Hey there's a man here
He'd says you'd know his name
He'd like to speak with Michael
He said with no delay
He says there's a way
To make all the clouds go away"
Tell him leave
He doesn't know what he's saying
I'm ok

"Hey man you've been down some
I've seen it in your walk
Your head looks more like a boulder
I don't think that I've heard you talk
I know a away
To make all the clouds go away
I know you man
and I know that you're not ok"

Just bring me the girl with the sparkly grey eyes from the beach
Bring me the girl and her rosy pink bed where she sleeps
Bring me the girl who likes I exist in her world
Bring me my girl

Or bring me the world and leave it asleep at my feet
Gather the stars and build me a golden fleet
Send me the cosmos and show me its strings
Or bring me my girl
Track Name: In the Rain
I know you're out there
With another man
Holding his hand
In the rain

Cause I was there too
Thinking of you
Holding my hand
In the rain

I've been insane
Thinking of you
Just holding my self
In the rain

Hold me
Till I think of something
The world is overwhelming
And timing's not my friend

Fold me
Make me into something
The world is over whelming
Timing's not my friend

I know you're out there
With another man
Holding his hand
In the rain

Cause I was there too
Thinking of you
Holding my hand
In the rain

Hold me
Till I think of something
The world is overwhelming
And timing's not my friend

Fold me
Make me into something
The world is over whelming
Timing's not my friend

Would you stay till the storm is over?
Would you stay till the thunder's gone?
In my head is a heavy boulder
Would you stay till the scarlet sun
Rises from either hell or slumber
Rises from that deep dark pond
Would you stay when my mind is overrun?

It's cold in the darkening twilight
There's a ghost on the moonlit clouds
In my heart is a stroke of lightning
Would you stay till the feelings found
Rising from either hell or slumber
Rising from that deep dark pond
Would you stay when my mind is overrun?
Track Name: Change Yourself
The new moon is a slice of the dying earth
(you're so useless)
You're trying to tell me it don't hurt

When the sun glares bright in your tired eyes
(you're so useless)
Beauty is a dying a lie

You're worst critic is ticking talking laughing clock

And it says change yourself cause they won't like you how you are
You're talking kinda slow
You're gonna take it way too far
So I said change yourself cause they won't like you how you are
You're stuttering, son
Now your swallowing your tongue alright

A new path is a pain for a fated train
(you're so useless)
Change is ugly as the world can be

You've learned tricks but you're down cause you're failure sticks
(you're so useless)
There's something missing in your hits

You're worst critic is hidden diamond in your mind

And they said change yourself cause they won't like you how you are
You're stories kinda dumb
And they don't want you at the bar
So I said change yourself cause they won't like you how you are
You're stuttering, son
Now your swallowing your tongue alright

And they said change yourself cause they won't like you how you are
You're talking kinda slow
You're gonna take it way too far
So I said change yourself cause they won't like you how you are
You're stuttering, son
Now your swallowing your tongue alright

Don't say you're not worth my time girl
Don't say you're not good for my world
Don't say you're never gonna make it
It's hard but that's all that you get

Don't say "why would you love me?"
Don't say "I'm good for nothing"
Don't say "what's good about me?"
The answer can't make you happy

Don't say "they're never gonna love me"
