Track Name: Baba Yaga
She lives in the woods, in the woods by the tree
Her house runs along on chicken feet
Babies stray from Mommas' side
Baba Yaga pick ‘em up and say goodbye

Baba Yaga swallowed our bones
Baba Yaga swallowed our souls
Baba Yaga swallowed our bones

Track Name: Pornival
You are
Exactly where you wanted it to be
Exactly where you asked for them to stay
You hold awake you make the stones collide

Today
oh my black hole empress won't you stay
Sync with my wooden heart, oh not today
march into the sun and we will fade away
Away Away Away

And you've heard! The city scream like brontosaurs
her bathtub is full of blood and oil
a riot baton singing songs, singing us home tonight
home tonight

You are
Exactly where you wanted it to end
Exactly where you saw the story bend
you are you know, you are you know
It's always been

Oh my black hole empress
Oh why won't you sync to this
oh why won’t you sync on to us to our wooden heart
before it twists and rips apart
Track Name: Soldiers Came
And then the Soldiers came
they were so different, so strange their wills
And then the Soldiers that came
took us away......

Where the sky ain't blue
It's too late, we're burned at the stake
It's too late, we are burned in your fire

And then the censors came
they were so different, so strange their will
And then the censors that came
took us away....

When the sky ain't blue
It's too late we've all been burned at the stake
It's too late, we are burned in your fire

And then the Soldiers came
they were so different, so strange their will
And then the Soldiers came
took us away...

Where the sky ain't blue

It's too late, we've all been burned at the stake
It's too late
We are burned
Track Name: Radioactive Brush
I love the way, you, sway
Back and forth, to me
Like you We’re cursed to be,
part of a human, sea

I love the days gone by
Poetry broke and on fire
Nuclear love, soaked desire

You are
You are
You are
You are

I love the way, you, sway
Back and forth, to me,
Like you We’re cursed to be,
part of a human, sea

I love the day turn to rust
All of the children to dust
And with a Radioactive brush

They’re swept away
They’re swept away
They’re swept away
They’re swept away
They’re swept away

I love the way, you, sway
Back and forth, to me
Like you were cursed to be,
part of a human, sea

I Love The Way

Gunshot – it’s so close
we're better off sawed off in the end

Gunshot – it’s so close
It’s better off sawed off in the end

Moonshot - we’re so lost
We’re better off crackpots in the bend

She don’t She don’t mind
These walls these chains

Track Name: Dead Cowboys
Manufactured Sunsets
a horse without a head
Though the backdrop’s burning
The space behind the bed

City streets albino
made our way to find you
the circus you betrayed
Now it’s time to pay

You're one of us now
You’re mine by the sound
You light my soul a glow
I wanna know

Is it vast as an ocean
As an earthquake
As a magic potion to bring
all our loved ones back to life

Is it vast as an ocean
As an earthquake
As a magic potion to bring
all our loved ones back home

Is it vast as an ocean
As an earthquake
As a magic potion that brings
all our loved ones back to life
Track Name: Atom Bomb
Atom Bomb that kissed her
Holy Ghost Transistor
They killed my Sister
for knowing too much

Cogs and buttons
seem to malfunction
Something wicked’s coming
coming soon

What’s the use in worrying
when we're already dead
What’s the use in crying too much
in the end

in the end

Atom Bomb that kissed her
Holy Ghost Transistor
They killed my Sister

Something wicked’s coming

What’s the use in worrying
when we're already dead
What’s the use of crying too much
in the end

Track Name: Cruel Sister
There's a city, stop.
With a widow’s, walk.
She is waiting, atop.
With the billowed, smoke.

OUR CRUEL SISTER drowned,

Our Cruel Sister comes in waves,

Track Name: 28 Seeds
These are the 28 Seeds that we sow
Some up in heaven and some down below

Some natural disaster, some man made you know

This is how we end ourselves
This is how we end ourselves

Track Name: Soft Time Traveler
It’s a stone’s throw, out this fox hole
They lead lined, all my friends skulls
Gas mask trench rabbits, gas trench, mask rabbits
Shot, shot in the head

It’s a rock tool, to carve out my heart
So the new day will start
What’s mine is what’s mine is yours
The World’s not, not what it was

It’s a Soft Time Traveler
It’s a Soft Time Traveler

Mushroom clouds, like trees
Einstein’s brain babies
Grown up, have grown to be
MACHINES of casualties

But he’s a Soft Time Traveler
she’s a Soft Time Traveler
I’m a Soft Time Traveler
We are Soft Time Travelers
