Track Name: Ghost in a Blood Machine
Come on baby, won't you give it a go?
How can they hate someone they don't even know?
You're really too quiet and it says you agree
There's nobody sicker than someone like me

I'm just a ghost in a blood machine
A dirty idea, but my heart is clean
I know you hate it that you love me, but, baby, will you hold me?
Baby, will you hold me if they can't see?

Just me and you in a club for two
I can be a ghost if you want me to
You're really too quiet and it says you agree
There's nobody sicker than someone like me

Leave him - I know you wanna
Don't worry about what your mama will say
One day they'll be gone
And leave us to carry on

Kiss me - I know you wanna
Don't worry about what your mama will say
One day they'll be gone
And leave us to carry on

I'm just a ghost in a blood machine
A dirty idea, but my heart is clean
I know you hate it that you love me, but, baby, will you hold me?
Baby, will you hold me if they can't see?
Track Name: Night Flowers
Oh, turn back
Oh, turn back trembling one
There's no air
No one's there to witness what you have done
The night flowers have powers - they deny the sun
I stare back
I stare at the back of my hands

My fingers are swollen from clenching my fists
I stretch out my back, my neck and my wrists

There's blood in my body and it sounds like this

It's cold in this water
And I can't reach the sun
Holy
Holy water
I'm holding on
(There's blood in my body)

There's blood in my body and it sounds like this
Track Name: Cavernous
I try to find the words, but I can't
I try to speak them out, but they're not where I left them
A head that's fill of mind is useless with the ties that bind it
Cut the rope, let it go

Now I'm waiting for my turn
Now I'm waiting for another time

I'm a little bit lost
I'm a little bit cold
Maybe a little bit jaded
But, I've still got a soul
Somewhere

(To some the words come so easy)
Now I'm waiting for my turn
Now I'm waiting for another time

I'm a little bit lost
I'm a little bit cold

(Now I'm waiting)

I'm a little bit lost
(Now I'm waiting for my turn)
I'm a little bit cold
(Now I'm waiting for another time)
Maybe a little bit jaded
(Now I'm waiting for my turn)
But, I've still got a soul
(Now I'm waiting for another time)
I'm a little bit lost
(Now I'm waiting for my turn)
I'm a little bit cold
(Now I'm waiting for another time)
Maybe a little bit jaded
(Now I'm waiting for my turn)
But, I've still got a soul
(Now I'm waiting)

I'm a little bit lost
(Now I'm waiting for my turn)
I'm a little bit cold
(Now I'm waiting)
Maybe a little bit jaded
(Now I'm waiting for my turn)
But, I've still got a soul
Track Name: Quartz
Did you build a forgiver?
We were down by the river, looking for stones
I found a rock smoothed by water
You found green Quartz, then you took me home

Now, I know that was a perfect day
Before the river came rushing in and washed you away
And I was left drowning for years, for years

Did you build a forgiver?

Yes, father's leaving and mother's grieving
They say that's how it goes
But, I know, everyday, that you chose to stay away
I grew harder like that stone

Do you know who I am?
Do you know where I've gone?
What I've seen? Who I've been lately?
Do you know what I want? What I'm trying to do?
Every day how I fail on the daily?

Have you looked for me lately?
Does it wake you like it wakes me?
Would it be different if I was a son?

I am the son and the daughter
I am the father who taught her
I am the stillness
I am the running river

Look at my heart
I am the running river
Look at my heart, look at my heart

I am the running river
Won't you take me back
Won't you take me back
Won't you take me back
Won't you take me back
To the river

It was the perfect day
Track Name: Styrofoam
Too late, too far
For me to reach
Too much, time spent
Waiting - just a little

Longer
Still here
Waiting
Can't speak
Too much time spent waiting
For you, for me

I feel it pulling closer
I know that I am near
Silence all around me
My bones say you are near
I feel it pulling closer
I know that I am near, living
In your atmosphere

Time stands still and I can't move
The sun slips behind the moon

I feel it pulling closer
I know that I am near
Silence all around me
My bones say you are near
I feel it pulling closer
I know that I am near, living
In your atmosphere

(I feel the space between us
I feel the time between us shift)

I feel it pulling closer
I know that I am near
Silence all around me
My bones say you are near
I feel it pulling closer
I know that I am near, living
In your atmosphere
