Track Name: Leaving Your Planet
Take it or leave it
How the earth is full
Of mysteries to explain
Now that we're leaving
Too many stones unturned
We've left them in their place

Tripping on the universe
We'll use the stars as our guide
Orion, please lead us home
We've been here for an age or two
Now we will leave to the sky
Turn around, watch it burn

We offer the answers
Stone by stone we build
These monuments to the sky
Designed by reason
Out of the caves they rise
With questions gone awry

Tripping on the universe
We'll use the stars as our guide
Orion, please lead us home
We've been here for an age or two
Now we will leave to the sky
Turn around, watch it burn

Turn around (burn)
Watch it burn
Turn around (burn)
Watch it burn

Tripping on the universe
We'll use the stars as our guide
Orion, please lead us home
We've been here for an age or two
Now we will leave to the sky
Turn around, watch it burn

Watch it burn
Watch it burn
Track Name: Bleeding in the Open Sea
I feel the ocean breeze
As it suffocates me
Around and around we go on the carousel of the world
The open seas, I bleed in the open seas
The sharks are coming to devour me

I'm not trying to die
I can't die if I try
Every word you said to me
Stings my mind like a venomous spine
Stuck for all time

Society is killing me
So off we go to place our plea
On the open sea
What's killing me are the states I see
Our minds dance in empty darkness
Till we set them free

I'm not trying to die
I can't die if I try
Every word you said to me
Stings my mind like a venomous spine
Stuck for all time

Every word you said to me
Stings my mind
Every word you said to me
Stings my mind

I am bleeding
I am bleeding
In the open sea

I am bleeding
I am bleeding
In the open sea
Track Name: Belay On
I'm going solo for now
But I need someone to help me out
Climbing blind through brush and trees
Are you blindfolded like me?

Belay on, belay on
We're just minutes from the top
Belay on, belay on
We must keep going when others stop

We're moving fast so watch your step
Don't choose paths you might regret
I've never seen the top before
But I've never wanted it more

Belay on, belay on
We're just minutes from the top
Belay on, belay on
We must keep going when others stop

Belay on, belay on, belay on, belay on
Belay on, belay on, belay on

Belay on, belay on
We're just minutes from the top
Belay on, belay on
We must keep going when others stop
Track Name: Ghost
I watched you come undone
And I watched you curse the sun
Tell them you're leaving tonight
Tell them
You'll get it right
Silver, gleaming back of a chair
I saw you, I saw you sitting there

You've got a ghost in the back of your head, I heard it's dead
You've got a ghost in the back of your head, I heard it's dead
You've got a way of running out to the sea, screaming you're free
You've got a way of running out to the sea, screaming you're free

You've got a picture
A picture of life
Between the highway solitude
And sad lonely nights
There's an ancient shadow chasing down your trail
I know it shakes you like Heaven, but he looks like Hell
She's got enough space for an ocean to grow
But the desert won't hold your empty soul

You've got a ghost in the back of your head, I heard it's dead
You've got a ghost in the back of your head, I heard it's dead
You've got a way of running out to the sea, screaming you're free
You've got a way of running out to the sea, screaming you're free
Track Name: Dry Out in the Rain
I put myself at the mercy of the sun's rays
Escape my cancerous ways
Running from the life I live in the lion's cage
Chained to the beast like a slave

We will dry out in the rain
Feeling the sweet pleasure of pain
Chasing pointlessness in vain
Stepping out in front of a train
A train
Stepping out in front of a train
A train

We will try our best to escape
We will try our best to make our break
From this game they call the world
From this game they call the world

I'm on the lonely side
The lonely side
The lonely side
Of home
I'm on the lonely side
The lonely side
The lonely side
Of home
All alone

We will dry out in the rain (we will dry out)
Feeling the sweet pleasure of pain
Chasing pointlessness in vain (we will dry out)
Stepping out in front of a train (we will dry out)
A train (we will dry out)
Stepping out in front of a train (we will dry out)
A train (we will dry out)

We will dry out in the rain
We will dry out in the rain
We will dry out in the rain
Track Name: What Have I Become
Laying here
I fear
I'm the only one
Who can hear
There is no one
That can see
All the evil things
That reside in me

What have I become?
I've abandoned everyone
What have I become?
A tortured soul, chemically numb

I'm a prisoner in my own skin
I am broken, caught in a spin
I keep digging away on an unmarked grave
And they're begging to throw me in

What have I become?
I've abandoned everyone
What have I become?
A tortured soul, chemically numb

I don't belong here, I don't belong here
I don't fit in
I don't belong here, I don't belong here
Again

What have I become?
I've abandoned everyone
What have I become?
A tortured soul, chemically numb

What have I become?
What have I become?
What have I become?
Track Name: Play
Take off your dress
Let your skin breathe free from inhibition
Open your heart
Feel the warmth of mother earth

So play out in the rain
Let your body free from its cage
Play, and you'll be saved
When the world enters its final days

Like a child
So innocent
And it takes one to know
The ways of the earth
Like a child
So innocent
And they go on to make it
But it's time to go

So play out in the rain
Let your body free from its cage
Play, and you'll be saved
When the world enters its final days

So play, go out and play
In the rain
So play, go out and play
In the rain
Track Name: Sometimes
There's a moth flying low tonight
It kissed the glass eye of my yellow headlight
You'd be the same without me by your side
Cause we're holding hands and dying for life

And it all feels the same sometimes
When the tunnel's looking too bright
And it all feels the same sometimes
When the tunnel's looking too bright

It's mountains when you're speaking
And trouble when you don't
We're drowning in rivers that no one knows
Roads keep curving and darkness flows
I'm burning inside for words to sow

And it all feels the same sometimes
When the tunnel's looking too bright
And it all feels the same sometimes
When the tunnel's looking too bright

When we face the purple sky
We see that we have died inside
Turning on our backs to see
The ceiling of eternity

It all feels the same sometimes
Sometimes
It all feels the same sometimes
Sometimes

We all feel the same sometimes
Sometimes
We all feel the same sometimes
Sometimes
Track Name: Keep Coming
I can smell them on the wind
Two hundred thousand men
They're building an army to defeat me
They're coming for my blood, my sophisticated love
They're planning out ways that they can beat me

I play the hand I'm dealt
I speak out and rebel
I'm not going to lay down that easy
They say I'm out of touch
They shut me down to shut me up
They try to blind me from the sights I'm seeing

I ate your food
I read your news
I hunger for the truth in your deception
I ate your food
I read your news
I hunger for the truth in your deception

And you still keep coming for me
Keep coming for me
Keep coming for me
And you still keep coming for me
Keep coming for me
Keep coming for me
For me
Track Name: Tree of Knowledge
Lying here in my bed
I see images forming on the walls
Playing chess with my consciousness
Enlightened spirits greet me to evolve

So sit back and relax
Close your eyes
See the world inside your mind
You can see true beauty
With the tree of knowledge and your mind combined

With a split of the double helix
I went behind my subconscious mind
Only to find
When I'm here in my ship
I transcend space and time
Like something divine

So sit back and relax
Close your eyes
See the world inside your mind
You can see true beauty
With the tree of knowledge and your mind combined

So sit back and relax
Close your eyes
See the world inside your mind
You can see true beauty
With the tree of knowledge and your mind combined
