Track Name: Lotophagi
Oh We found an island in the moonlight, we’re never going home

and we beseech you king of love! just leave us alone!

we sailed all the night

Deeper In the forest of the isle, the lotus dust swirls and beguiles oh no

Sweets of peaceful apathy we’ll never be this happy again, again.

Oh and the night was wild, the natives cried out in bucolic drone

We made an offering up to love, just leave us alone

We danced/sang all night, we’re singing Oh oh oh

Oh we found an island in the moonlight, we’re never going home

Oh and we beseech you king of love leave us alone

The night was wild the natives cried out in bucolic drone

We made an offering up to love, just leave us alone!

Deeper in your heart I'll climb, into fabled hallows

Even if you lose your mind to stars up in the sky.
Track Name: Hunters, Gatherers
Love will come to you, oh baby, love will come to you
I swear it’s worth the wait, oh baby, love will come to you

Hunters gatherers not the patient kind, wasting time looking for an elusive one.
Hunters gatherers not the patient kind, giving up cause I never get what I want.

Oh, it’s been a long long time, but love will come to you.

Hunters gather round don’t you worry now, it will come across the ocean for you.
Hunters gather round don’t you worry now, its not the end not the end no its not the end.

Oh, it’s been a long long time, but love will come to you.
Track Name: The Catharsis of Failure
I think im feeling better, there’s been a change in weather

Did you find answers?> No that doesn’t matter now

Can you think clearly? No that doesn’t matter now

I am taken

I think im feeling better, theres been a change in weather

I think im feeling better
Track Name: With Open Hands
You cant go back there but you still hold it, just let it go into the past now

You keep your anger in your breast pocket with all your regret close to your heart

Just let it go already

All of that fear is quite unbecoming just let it go just let it go and

Havent you heard that you hold it tightest with open hands, open your hands and…

Just let it go already

I know its not easy to lay down your armor the pretense of honor is keeping us apart

Just let it go

already
Track Name: Jaguar Meets the Fool
Let me in and I’ll convince time to slow the line

(under) naked moon’s eye: years go by

and you don’t believe me years go by

Every day’s just a

blink of an eye, years go by

every day’s just so

Oh so fleeting. Years go by.
Track Name: Dementia
Deep down I knew then simple days can’t last forever, wanna get back gotta get back home

Somewhere in your mind im still floating about treading water lost forever no

Just because you forgot doesn’t mean it didn’t happen, come tomorrow the memories a ghost

It happened all at once, all at once, all at once

You will have forgot this time tomorrow, you will have forgot this all my love

Oh how good it was even if you don’t remember

Oh how good it was somewhere, somewhere you still know

You say the secret to your happiness is all in what you could forget?

sometimes, oh how I wish I could!

You will have forgot this time tomorrow, you will have forgot it all my love

It happened all at once, all at once, all at once.

Somewhere. Somewhere you still know. 2x

You will have forgot this time tomorrow, you will have forgot it all my love.
Track Name: Black Pyramids in the Snow
Where did you go? Black chasm swallowed you whole and left you

You were not looking to be found. How could we know?

Woo

Oh you’ve got some nerve don’t you? Oh you’ve got some nerve.

Where did you go? To black pyramids in snow no trace was left in the afterglow

Now we will never get our rest until you’re home

Don’t know what they did to you when you were just a babe.

Treat us like your play thing you can throw away.

Woo

Oh you’ve got some nerve don’t you? Oh you’ve got some nerve.

We combed the area for clues looking for any sign of you, we want the one,

we want the one we used to know.

Woo

Oh you’ve got some nerve don’t you? Oh you’ve got some nerve.
Track Name: When I Come Home
I need someone to rely on, need someone like you

Need someone to leave this island for, need someone like you

Hold me tight like a python, hold my breath for you

Until all around me are visions of you, beautiful milieu

I am crying out and… I need something new.

I need someone to rely on, need someone like you

Need someone who’s worth crying for, need someone like you

Hold me up like a pylon, built to withstand war

Or Pull me down down down, like your nylons, tear me to the floor

I am crying out and…I need something new.

There’s just one thing I really need when I come home

I need someone to rely on, need someone like you

Need someone to leave this island for, need someone like you.
