Track Name: Thieves of Color
Streams of light
The color leaves me
Taking from me
Thieves of color

First ones to come
From far away
Bring, bring decay
Thieves of color

Reap from me
Take from me
One touch

Silently, slowly
Moving towards us
Taking from us
All of our colors

Total white-out
What happens after
Some cold disaster
And no more colors

Reap from me
Take from me
One touch
The helplessness of this
That bring us here
Reap from me
Thieves of color
Track Name: Violetism
Oh yeah Violet I can see your desires
Oh Violet you can feel my hands as I reach
Deep into your heart, and feel your inhibitions depart
Past your fears I will finally breech

Dry swallowing and quickened breath
I eagerly tug the tie tight around my neck
Or else I will lose control,
The hotspace becomes too much to hold
It's far beyond the point to correct

Ferociously I will let the straps fall down your shoulder
Undress the spirit I want to reach within

Oh Violet, I have contracted
Violetism
It's the depth behind my way, Violet
Don't you see I miss the name I cry tonight
I'm here for you

Your heels dance lonely on the floor
And a pile of your past graces the cold tile
I finally am your source of heat pulling you deep
Into the sensual retreat for now I will
Prepare for my dark trial

Oh Violet, I have contracted
Violetism
It's the depth behind my way, Violet
Don't you see I miss the name I cry tonight
I'm here for you
Track Name: Spiral Clouds
I'm interested in pulling the clouds down to earth
Let's make a fog so no one will find us out
And we will swim through this fog
Escape up and reside forever in the atmosphere

Now here we sit, dangling our feet into the cold cirrus
But before we could breathe deeper, you slipped
And fell through the cracks in the sky's foam
And returned to a naked earth

Every now and then will you look back up, and remember
That the spiral clouds are because of me
I have kicked them to signal that I am still alive and well
I just am living a life without you
Track Name: Bystanders
Captured in your ghost arms
A non-warming embrace
Does it mean you're not it
When I'm still feeling lonely

A loving man has been replaced
By a strange looking creature
Reality never to be faced
As he slowly chokes her

Let me invert this sky tonight
Let me restart and release again
I will study this new insight
To never feel this pain again

And I found a lever inside of me
And I pulled at it with all my might
And a human was born so suddenly
And in my hands, held your coat so tight
The cosmos setting and the ugly bright
I avert my eyes from the bleeding beams
I deep down hope that you feel contrite
I beg never again you enter my dreams

This loving man has told his lies
To keep her locked inside him
The fallacies that he denies
Augment until the world grows dim

Let me invert this sky tonight
Let me restart and release again
I will study this new insight
To never feel this pain again

Let me invert this sky tonight
Let me restart and release again
I will study this new insight
Tell the Bystanders
Track Name: Theory Versus Truth
Upon the stage, the secrets behind it all
I came here to dance, you came here to fall
Stories and sing-songs that speak of your travels
Counter to culture your justice unravels

When I see you so sexualized, I feel distant
I am suffering in my youth, too afraid

You're over there screaming: drugs, rock, and roll
So I just retract away, out of fear of no control
I'm just a child, leave me alone, let me play my little violin
I prefer heart and mind, to your force of adrenaline

When I see you so sexualized, I feel distant
I am suffering on my own, too afraid

Corrupt come get me and mess with me, but leave a piece of me intact
The place that I truly wish to go between science fiction and fact
A balance inside a universe where I can remain within my youth
But to me the difference is clear in theory versus truth

When I see you so sexualized, I feel distant
I am suffering in my heart, too afraid
Lalalalalalala
Track Name: My Last Wish to You
Somehow the reason got so lost
Caught in a distant soaring and trembling warm song
I was not prepared for all that this has cost
And in the end there is no right or wrong

In this world I can never say I do nor can I say I don't have regrets
But ends come and go
Please, tell me that you will still think of all the things we said
And all the things we found in each other
My last wish to you

I try and I ponder, but I cannot feel complete
Awaiting a future, till then I will accept defeat
You had broken my heart with her body for fun
And it was never undone

In this world I can never say I do nor can I say I don't have regrets
But ends come and go
Please, tell me that you will still think of all the things we said
And all the things we found in each other
My last wish to you

In this world I can never say I do nor can I say I don't have regrets
But ends come and go
Please, tell me that you will still think of all the things we said
And all the things we found as one
My last wish to you
Track Name: Seducing Your Fire
You want to be freed
Stop. Listen to yourself
Claims of escape, falsely proclaim nirvana
Tying up your energy
Using up all your energy
So blindly now

Live and you'll breathe, breathe
And taste and you'll see, see
Stop taking it over
Before it is over
Orchestrated so unfree
Chains you wrap yourself inside
Sworn to count on afterlife
Some may follow some may hide

You want life anew
Stop and look in, stop and look in
Answers are greater than logical data
Eating up your energy
Torturing all your energy
So painfully

Live and you'll breathe, breathe
And taste and you'll see, see
Stop taking it over
Before it is over
Talk to your soul, soul
Your natural spirit
Will take you much higher
Seducing your fire

Live and you'll breathe, breathe
And taste and you'll see, see
Stop taking it over
Before it is over
Orchestrated so unfree
Chains you wrap yourself inside
Sworn to count on afterlife
Some may follow

Live and you'll breathe
And taste and you'll see
Stop taking over
Talk to your soul, soul
Your natural spirit
Will take you much higher
Seducing your fire
