Track Name: Pillage (ft. Mojdeh)
LYRICS:

I will tie one end to my place of living
I will tie this rope to my body
Then I’ll tie it to this stone
I will fasten this hemp tightly around my sustenance
And I will secure this properly
around the people who make me feel at home

I will press my fingers to your lips
I will place my hand over my mouth and tighten my grip
It’s my fault; it’s my fault; it’s my fault,
I opened up to you
It’s my fault I told you the truth

I will tie one end to my place of living
I will tie this rope to my body
Then I’ll tie it to this stone
I will fasten this hemp tightly around my sustenance
And I will secure this properly
around the people who make me feel at home

I will press my fingers to your lips
I will place my hand over my mouth and tighten my grip
It’s my fault; it’s my fault; it’s my fault,
I opened up to you
It’s my fault, I told you the truth

Those privileged – they like to pillage
My body – it’s just a cavern of gold
Left to harbor these treasures
For those – who don’t know what is precious
They don’t know
So privileged – they like to pillage
So privileged – they like to pillage

Only whispers left without promise
Only utterance, unkempt
Anticipate the fog that follows
I can only regret

Now that this has been addressed
You cannot ensure this pledge would be kept
So I can’t, No I can’t - I can’t let you in
I can’t, No I can’t - I can’t let you in

My body – it’s just a cavern of gold
Left to harbor these treasures untold
Those who don’t know what is precious
So privileged

You had my forgiveness under your control
And you threw it deep in the distance

So privileged – they like to pillage
So privileged – they like to pillage
So privileged – they like to pillage
Those privileged – they like to pillage
Track Name: Fool Moon
LYRICS:

Fool moon!

What cryptic secrets does it bare
In the paleness of its face?
Annoying look of a dead body
A look so empty, stark and flat

Oh, please don’t look at me like that
My glowing look is all I have

Full moon…

It laughs hysterically at ignorance
And confidence, which we attach
To ourselves and which eventually
Will be erased without a trace

The moonlight cuts in half my face
Its silver light – a ghastly knife
Track Name: The Wayfarer (ft. nearer:breath)
LYRICS:

On the steed of patience I seek my Beloved
With longing, traversing this homeland of dust
If I strive a hundred years and fail
I will not falter

I will soar in the air even as I walk
Upon this sand
And I will move over this water even as I run
Upon the land

In thy soul, build thou a fire
And burn all thoughts and words entire
In thy soul, build thou a fire
And burn all thoughts and words entire

How can a fleeting shadow
Reach the everlasting sun
Love is a veil
Between the lover and the Beloved

I have taken my heart away from this world
And the world to come
In all their desires I see this search
for the Desired One

Majnun sought purest Layli in the dust
While learned men shook their heads in disgust
He replied, “I seek her everywhere, I seek her everywhere
And I shall find her…”

In thy soul, build thou a fire
And burn all thoughts and words entire
In thy soul, build thou a fire
And burn all thoughts and words entire

Split the atoms heart
And within, thou wilt find the sun
Love is a veil
Between the lover and the Beloved
Track Name: Jinxed (ft. Taylor Brennan)
LYRICS:

Walked around
All the broken glass
Seven years to wait
Would have wasted anyway

Pulled a lash
Sent it with a kiss
Off into the wind
The lash returned alone

Crossing paths
Frozen in a state
To avoid the truth
Moving forward is harder than it seems

The rain got in
And yet i let it flood
For shelter here
Would sink us both

Luck cant last forever
When its lost to love and other luck
Love can last forever
Who needs luck when love is lost itself

The numbers matched
They lined up in a row for
A moments time
And then moved on

I spent the time
Counting all wishes
That I wished I had
And missed it all

I kept the time
Over in a jar
tightly sealed
Yet time escaped and ran off with my youth

Checked the lights
Exactly every time
Til the science of
Superstition reinvented

Checked the lights
Exactly every time
Til the science of
Repetition reinvented

Luck cant last forever
When its lost to love and other luck
Love can last forever
Who needs luck when love is lost itself
Track Name: Great Is The Day
LYRICS:

Great is the day when you wake up in the morning
without an alarm clock.
You don’t have to get up and you can lie there for about 15 minutes
listening to noises of your surroundings.
And among them you discern that very peculiar one
of water dripping from the kitchen faucet.
Your ditch is hollow.
So much space but nothing to fill it with!
You yourself now lie on the floor with water
dripping on your forehead.
Great is the day when you still have your forehead
and nothing is dripping from it.
You stand up and walk to the bathroom;
your bare feet step on the freezing tile.
If it wasn’t so unbearably hot, it would be winter.
If you weren’t covered in sweat now, you would be shivering.
Great is the day when you’re not shivering.

You met a friend for lunch. Both of you ate;
he shook your hand and left.
You stayed behind and sat among the leftovers.
Great is the day when there are leftovers
and great is the day when there are spaces to fill.
But you feel distressed
because what you see is shallow beauty –
fictitious, intentional and forced.
Great is the day when there are still remains of beauty.
And so you want to go on living
even though your lunch didn’t satisfy your hunger.
Then you come home
and even though your ditch is hollow
at least it’s familiar.
At least the space in it belongs to you
and even though right now you have no clue of what to do or how to act
you have a funny premonition
that perhaps someday in the future
you will be able to figure it out.
Great is the day when there will still be future.
Track Name: Verge of Perception (ft. Mojdeh)
LYRICS:

Gravely night casts a shroud
Calming those who are worn out
Days drown in oblivion
But we must live; we carry on
Below the ceiling; above the floor
Smooth walls and a door
A rotten feeling on your soul
What binds it all…

A yellow slit in the gloom
The only source of light
What hides beyond the bounds of this room
Behind the door, on its other side
There life takes its normal course
But here time as though froze
The air tears, the darkness spears
And silence rings in your ears
You’d like to peacefully fall asleep
But thoughts rush through your head
Close your eye and concentrate
But don’t forget…

That you should know (over pause)
That when you sleep
Stars fall
From the sky
And did you know
that when you bleed
Blood’s washed away
but pain remains inside
And every time
across the plains night
slides on the sly
It covers fast
the earth with dreams
Before again
it has to die

Maybe a little monophobia
Maybe a little claustrophobia
Most likely a bit of both
And night flits like a moth
The emptiness fills in the space
It presses on your tender face
And the only source of light
Cuts through your sight
Track Name: Epilogue
LYRICS:

It’s not the setting of the sun that sparks in me that all-embracing sadness.

Only a strange, sustained moment, a tearing tension, a near pain with which the sun would slowly sink.
Its strength escapes; its energy subsides.
Disarmed by time it can easily be punctured by sight.

After it’s gone, only the glow hangs resonantly still against the evening sky.
