Track Name: We Were Rotating
Why did the background move
while you remained in constant view?
We were rotating
Did I feel my joints pulling outward from the center point?
We were rotating, we were rotating

Elevating as we spin around
Geyser skyward on a molten wave of sound
We revolve

Why did the clouds exchange
from the jagged coast to mountain range?
We were rotating
Did my soul pass through other souls along the way to you?
We were rotating, we were rotating

Elevating as we spin around
Geyser skyward on a molten wave of sound
We revolve

Why did the background move
while you remained in constant view?
We were ro, we were ro, we were rotating
We were ro, we were
Rotating
We were ro, we were
Rotating
We were ro, we were
Track Name: Thru
You can look down on me
You can look down on me, but I will continue
And you can try to block me
You can try to block me

(chorus:)
I will go thru you
I will go thru you
I will go thru you
I will get through
by shifting so that yours and my
molecules perfectly misalign

Showing your doubt in me
You're sharing your doubt in me
But I will forgive you
Why would you try to stop me?
You should not try to stop me

(chorus)

And I'm just passing through
It is the only way
I'm just passing through
Is it such a change?
You know we all occupy
We all occupy the same space

Running aground on me
Running aground on me, but I will release you
I promise you it's real
I'll show you how it feels

(chorus)
Track Name: Vacant Stares
What's living underneath you
Can it be extended and reduced?
Yearn to be something bigger
and indeed, this is something bigger than you
And stronger, hungry too
You open up that hole and fall right through
And nothing I can say will help you

Search for someone, anybody who cares
What crawls out from under vacant stares?
Search for someone, anybody who cares
We crawl out from under vacant stares

What's living underneath me
Is it something I'm supposed to know?
What turns the gears beneath the engine that
controls where all my thoughts go?
They're churning, chafing too
And look at what you've got yourself into
Nothing I can say will help you

Search for someone, anybody who cares
What crawls out from under vacant stares?
Search for someone, anybody who cares
We crawl out from under vacant stares
