Track Name: Theo
This is my idol come down from fallen grace
This is the last messiah put in his place
I need a sign you're falling away
Into the dawn of a bright new day

May we thrive and feel alive
Everlasting light in our eyes
May we thrive and feel alive
Everlasting light in our eyes

And so the world was flat, with our minds alike
These pages full of words, all black and white
We starve to make sense, of progress and past tense

May we thrive and feel alive
Everlasting light in our eyes
May we thrive and feel alive
Everlasting light in our eyes
May we thrive, survive, make it out of this alive
Track Name: Discovery
I washed up to an ocean breeze
Sand and water through my fingers
Sun in the sky, fish in the sea
I took off into the forest

Discovery, faces on the leaves
Bird with a beak made of ivory
Singing in tongues of the lost Menahee

High winds will break on my wings
The pleasure discovery brings
All of this color and all that it means
Surely will now be seen

If I can fly, high over the mountain
I might go see some friends I've been looking for
Settle scores by tonight

High winds will break on my wings
The pleasure discovery brings
All of this color and all that it means
Surely will now be seen
Track Name: Diamond Eyes
They've got so much more of you than I do
I'm playin' with a photograph, a voice on the end of the line
Another step towards the door with every word left unspoken
Repeating words a record broken, spinning off the tracks

Another Sunday afternoon floating on this buoyant tune
It carries you miles and miles to find that down the line
Too many words go unspoken, you found it now dead and broken
Lying on the floor.

So when you come back down from your cloud
I'll be twenty-five miles this side of town
You just stood there smilin' white teeth and diamond eyes

I really wish you'd make a choice, 'cause sittin' on the fence might break your balance
And you'll tumble down and bruise your pretty head
And mine's all full of lead
My heart was strong but you've been gone so long

So when you come back down from your cloud
I'll be twenty-five miles this side of town
You just stood there smilin' white teeth and diamond eyes
Track Name: Satellites
Come with me, into green pastures and go to sleep, face down, windows up
Look around, when there's no exit and go to sleep, head stoned, no way out

The satellites are shining bright on the world tonight
But do they really know me, do they really know anything of what they see

Carelessly show everything you have to me, on the technicolor TV, eyes wide, chin held up
Run away, its the only way to reconnect, the only way to be complete again

The satellites are shining bright on the world tonight
But do they really know me, do they really know anything of what they see

I can see you looking through the atmosphere
And I can see you looking through the...
Track Name: Fire, Fire
She fell right on me, mother nature shook the ground beneath my feet
In the morning, it didn't feel right, I am one to blindly throw knives
We have a secret now, follows me to the grave
I thought I was sincere, but I was never brave

Wild fire, ragin on, towards the sun, and it won't burn out
Flames and ashes all that's left of a chain reaction

I tried to fight it, I kept my wandering eyes down on the floor
But I'm so excited, how do you keep me wanting more and more?
How the spine will break, forgetting what's at stake?
When pressure comes in waves, steady hands will always shake

Wild fire, ragin' on, towards the sun and it won't burn out
God you're gorgeous, flowered and standing tall as your will allows
All I can see is you there with me, lying in the fire, lying in the fire
