Prelude 03:18
You stood by the moon// You took all your clothes off and you drowned// The water it burns your skin// As you try and extinguish// the flames from the fire within// the fire within. You find yourself lost in the halls of// Alabaster antiquities that are arranged// in a way that suggests you remain as// more than a ghost in this bed that once held your name// And it still smells of that spot on your neck// Where I would bury my face// You wish you coould stand up tall// and erase all the things// that woun't let you love her with all// of your self
Odysseus Wept// As he watched the lights fade// As he watched the shore fade// As he watched his heart fade// Odysseus wept// As he watched his men sway// As he watched his men lay// Along the poppy fields// Odysseus wept// As he watched his men break// Within the hands off all rage// Within the hands of its rage// // He cried to the gods// Oh father where are you?// Come slay this man// He tore out my eye// Father, Lord of the sea where are you?// This little man, tore out my eye// Then Neptune Spoke// Son, give me his name// I'll curse him to// A thousand years// A thousand years of pain// He said his name was nothing// He said his name was nothing// He said his name was nothing// He said// // As he sails away he cries my name is// Odysseus// Odysseus// Now with your// Now with your pride you're// Left to wander// Left to wander.
Words written and spoken by Carl Sagan
I can can't breathe, no// And I can't breathe, no// The images reflect across my eyes// and I can't breathe, no// A child!// A child!// Is too young to know the difference in// Denial!// And I'll// Shiver and shake and carry what's transpired//
Crack these ribs and look inside// We've lost ourselves again// What do we hide inside?// Mechanical heart, is pumping blood// What do we hide inside?// Where do we draw the line?// The suture is sealed, the skin is tight// The damage done// The crow, she spoke in verse and whispered burn She whispers burn// You're going to burn// Into the waves, we woke, we walk// Into the waves, we woke, walk// into the waves, we woke, we walk...
Panic 04:42
These iron bands around your chest// Will surely put your heart to rest// They squeeze you til you lose your breath// The lines that etch across your face// They speak a language that suggests// You've wasted every other breath// You've wasted// You're going to make it// You've wasted!// You put more into it than this// You've wasted!// You're going to make it// The fear collapses around you// Cascades like waterfalls// This tingling starts behind the ears// And follows through the stars// And as you reach our hands to the sky// You take the time to see// Nothings going to change// You're never going to change// You scream// Maybe!// Yeah maybe things can change// Maybe!// Yeah maybe this can change// Maybe!// Yeah maybe this can change// Maybe!// Yeah, maybe this can change// And you're tired again But you try again// And you're tired again// And you try again// But you are lying in your bed// Lying in your bed as if you're already...
