Inside Out 03:35
INSIDE OUT The pills, the booze, the sugar, the news, we take it in Every night it’s what we choose again and again We’re bleeding from the inside out We’re bleeding from the inside out The politics of idiots, we let it go The dumbing down of common things we used to know We’re bleeding from the inside out We’re bleeding from the inside out America, America, America We’re bleeding from the inside out The meth, the air, with blackened lung we breathe it in The grease, the porn, the bottles of amphetamine We’re bleeding from the inside out We’re bleeding from the inside out America, America, America We’re bleeding from the inside out We’re bleeding from the inside We’re bleeding from the inside We’re bleeding from the inside out The pills, the booze, the sugar, the news, we take it in Every night it’s what we choose again and again

LIKE A VILLAIN My mortal enemy Something I can’t see Sneaks up inside of me And takes me for a ride It’s having so much fun Me with my weapons drawn Never a battle won It’s the beast that won’t die What’s the worst that could happen That could happen to me? It takes my breath like a villain It steals my heartbeat Come look inside my mind It’s in there all the time The more I draw the line The more it comes around You want to tell me how To kill it here and now You’ve got your dagger out Now it’s nowhere to be found What’s the worst that could happen That could happen to me? It takes my breath like a villain It steals my heartbeat It steals my heartbeat, it steals my heartbeat Like a villain, like a villain, like a villain, like a villain What’s the worst that could happen That could happen to me? It takes my breath like a villain It steals my heartbeat

Afterglow 04:11
AFTERGLOW I know you’re coming back around I see you turn your head for me I had a dream you were my baby We were floating in the sea, you were holding on to me You’ve got a fire in your eyes Just like the center of the sun I look away but it is too late I’m already gone I know you want to put your lips against my skin It makes me feel like I am seventeen again I want to stay here in this state I’m in all night (All night, all night) Take me out for a drive where all the lovers go I get the stars in my eyes when you move just so It’s such a beautiful night I’m in the afterglow, oh oh Someone told me you were looking Looking for a real thing I can be your real baby It’s the real that I bring So blaze a trail with those bright eyes And I will follow through the bends I had a dream that we were sinking Into a love that never ends I know you want to put your lips against my skin It makes me feel like I am seventeen again I want to stay here in this state I’m in all night (All night, all night) Take me out for a drive where all the lovers go I get the stars in my eyes when you move just so It’s such a beautiful night I’m in the afterglow, oh oh

THE INFORMANT This kind of thing burns hot and slow It’s bound to scald the flesh if you don’t let it go But who to tell and who to trust And who remembers anything that you discussed? It’s nuclear in foreign hands Somebody better get it before they makes their plans In the underground, in the dark of night You deliver up a paper that brings it all to light The informant sleeps with one eye open He’s the only real hope, real hope Of bringing them down The informant sleeps with one eye open He’s the only real hope, real hope Of bringing them down Corruption, lies and years of greed They were thinking they would never really ever bleed But you found a crack in their steel hearts You stick the knife in deep and watch them break apart The informant sleeps with one eye open He’s the only real hope, real hope Of bringing them down The informant sleeps with one eye open He’s the only real hope, real hope Of bringing them down Bridge: You have it all, you make the plan But someone’s waiting with a gun in hand You see the one you’re supposed to meet But the bullets start flying right there in the street If you turn back now you’ll have to disappear Or kill yourself from living everyday in fear CHORUS

Innsaei 03:55
Innseai Here I am with the rain on my face On the floor of the forest, no steps to retrace With a list of violations we’ve made Against truth and wisdom and the quiet of the day Innsaei, Innsaei Waiting for the moment when you’re finally free Innsaei, Innsaei Swimming through the dark to the clear blue sea When you bleed what shade does it run? Is it dark the river or pale like the sun? Pull the thread and it all comes undone Does your heart give a warning like the beat of a drum? Innsaei, Innsaei Waiting for the moment when you’re finally free Innsaei, Innsaei Swimming through the dark to the clear blue sea And I know you Like a stone washed clean by the river’s edge And I know you Like a dream in a dream I already had And I know you Like the ground underneath my heavy head And I know you If I know what I’ve done is right Then I shouldn’t be feeling this animal fright Like a deer in the bright headlights Just another survivor in the dark of the night Innsaei, Innsaei Waiting for the moment when you’re finally free Innsaei, Innsaei Swimming through the dark to the clear blue sea Innsaei, Innsaei Waiting for the moment when you’re finally free Innsaei, Innsaei Swimming through the dark to the clear blue sea

The Legend of the Silver Moon Silver Moon, cast your shadow down, onto this troubled world Show your face, I can feel the weight, I can feel the pull Coyote calls, I follow the sound, I follow him down to the river I make my way, by the shadows that dance from the light of the Silver Moon And everything goes quiet, And the river becomes fire And the fire rises high, and swallows up the sky Silver Moon, where have you gone, and how will we find you tonight? This angry fire, won’t share the sky, it’s gonna’ burn us alive, alive All of the wild things, all of the water All of the beasts and sons and daughters Cowered to the fire, afraid of getting burned ‘Cause the thing they never learned Is to fight for what they have not earned The light, light of the Silver Moon They fought with guns, they fought with bombs, they fought with angry words They screamed so loud, like the echo of a million raging birds Then Coyote called, “tell the rain and the clouds, and all of the stars above To find the Silver Moon, and fight the fire, fight the fire with love” And the fire rolls and turns, And the air around us burns It spins a million times, And opens up the sky All of the wild things, all of the water All of the beasts and sons and daughters ooooh ooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh, Silver Moon, All of the wild things, all of the water….

SAFE FROM LOVE You run from the things I say From the light of day, from the bitter pain And you run down the fire escape From the breaking waves, from the love I gave You flee down the easy road Where love never goes, where love never goes You flee down the corridor From what’s in store, when you give it all away You’re keeping safe from love Aren’t you baby, aren’t you baby You trip on your own two feet When you’re close to me, on the words you speak You run from the smoking gun And you come undone, from the things you start to feel You’re keeping safe from love Aren’t you baby, aren’t you baby You’re keeping safe from love Aren’t you baby, aren’t you baby I’ll break you down, baby you’ll come around someday You’re keeping safe from love Aren’t you baby, aren’t you baby You’re keeping safe from love Aren’t you baby, aren’t you baby You’re keeping safe from love Aren’t you baby, aren’t you baby (You don’t know when you’ve got it good, with a love that you should hold on to, so you let it slip away)
8.
TRANSCEDENTAL I set out to be transcendental But my mind won’t quiet My mind won’t quiet I set out to make my heart settle But my body remains A pounding rapid drum QUIET, QUIET (Settle down won’t you settle down) QUIET, QUIET (Leave me alone, won’t you leave me alone) QUIET, QUIET (Give me peace, just a moment of peace) QUIET, QUIET I try to tell my soul it’s fundamental But the blood pounds in my head And my pulse is wired I know that I can be temperamental And this state that I’m in Won’t let me just be quiet QUIET, QUIET (Settle down won’t you settle down) QUIET, QUIET (Leave me alone, won’t you leave me alone) QUIET, QUIET (Give me peace, just a moment of peace) QUIET, QUIET

Olivia 04:48
OLIVIA There is a storm that rips through all the houses Tears them apart, leaving all disaster You are the wind that makes it just get stronger You are the wind There is a rain that stays for 18 days And knocks down the trees, and washes them away You are the cloud that lingers high above The ominous shroud Olivia, Olivia You are a fire that starts just as an ember Then comes the wind and gets you all riled up And you blaze across the wilderness Until the ocean meets your match There is an ache that turns into a pain And soon you can’t move And it withers you away But you love this state, and everyone will say You welcome this pain Olivia, Olivia Bridge: (Repeat in a round) I will be your sun Whoever knocks you down Don’t fire all your guns Instrumental Olivia, Olivia, Olivia, Olivia

WHEN YOU LOSE SOMEONE Underneath the shattered surface Another hundred levels down Is a darkness reaching further Holding you there to drown When you lose someone When you lose someone You can walk a million miles Through the canyon in your mind But when your heart is broken You can’t run away from time When you lose someone When you lose someone You see the hole get smaller As you’re navigating through Feels like floating in the water Then you sink beneath the ever-changing blue When you lose someone When you lose someone There’s a boulder where your lungs were And it’s choking out the air Every breath now a beginning As your ravaged heart repairs When you lose someone When you lose someone

SETTING OF THE SUMMER SUN Oh sun on my skin, let the healing begin And the Winter blues and cool Spring hues Turned warm shades of red to the orange as they bled Into the ocean like a soul that’s found its home Echos I hear from the sea coming clear Have I wasted hours living with the Fear of love being lost in a wave Taken under ‘til it’s never seen again I can’t hold you like an anchor anymore There’s a way for me to want you and want more And whatever parts of me have come undone I’ll let them go with the setting of the summer sun Oh love I can take so much then I break Like a two-way mirror, you see me clearer Now I go on and the things that went wrong Are reflections of the way we chose to live I can’t hold you like an anchor anymore There’s a way for me to want you and want more And whatever parts of me have come undone I’ll let them go with the setting of the summer sun Bridge I can’t hold you like an anchor anymore There’s a way for me to want you and want more And whatever parts of me have come undone I’ll let them go with the setting of the summer sun

about

We are so excited to share this album with you all. It was a journey to get it to this place. This is an album full of songs about human behavior, addiction, anxiety and panic attacks, love beginning, love ending, spies and more. We really hope you can take the time to listen to it in its entirety and let the stories unfold in your own mind. Thank you for supporting our music!
