Track Name: Veins
I can see right through
this sea of lies we sail on
and what we travel to
might already be gone.

On the ocean floor
with the bottom feeders laughing
tectonic plates still shifting,
we seek what we are lacking.

Spectrum tinted grey
the colors we are missing
no Northern Lights so far away
no red lips I'll be kissing.

Tried to find my way
by the dim light of a candle
the sky is like a big T.V.
on a non-existent channel

When the rivers run dry
and the thirst of the world can't be quenched
I will let loose the gift from my veins
For to turn this broken steppe into rolling golden planes
Track Name: Maya Tension
I've been spending all of my time
I got this one thing on my mind
it's been sapping all of my attention
so answer me just one question

[Chorus]
Why do I spend all my time on you
some days it seems all I can do

I reach out a hand to hold
your embrace it's oh so cold
you never return all my affection
you turn my thoughts of you into discretions

[Chorus]

[Chorus×2]
Track Name: Minorska
Deep in the smoggy bowls of L.A.
concrete giants block our way
stuck in dreary suburbs here

Where a mutants claim to fame
is a pristine yard of pomade
a crew-cut gardeners dream

[Chorus]
How I long to see natural greenery
and I must escape this Anglo-Saxo-Tentiary
sail away, rolling waves will carry us
Minorska waits, Odin's breath will ferry us

I wake to a blinding neon star
a cat-scratch orchestra
outside my dirty window

and down along the beaten path
midnight vendors make a pass
at unsuspecting strangers

[Chorus 2]
How I long to see natural greenery
and I must escape this Anglo-Saxo-Tentiary
sail away, rolling waves will carry us
Minorska waits, come and live vicarious with me
Track Name: One With the Sea
As the moon rises over the sea
the lights of a tavern, they're calling to me
and I, I've bided my time
I've wasted most of my life
now my heart's growing cold

[Chorus]
Oh but the sea, she's calling to me
her rolling waves, the seagulls call
I may be long in my years but I'm short on my sea-legs
I may be long in my years, but I'm short on my sea-legs sir.

[Chorus]

And all, all along coastlines
all upon cliff-sides, my love she is clawing
and I, I cannot rendez-vous avec tu
je peux accompany you just as far as the break

As I walk along the beach at night
the gulls they cry out my name
so I climb the highest peak I can find
as I stride, one foot in front of the other, I climb
till I'm looking into the eyes of my love
and I throw myself onto my knees
genuflect and reflect on my life
as I throw myself to the breeze
now I'm free, I'm free to become one with the sea
can't you see I'm finally free
I'm finally, finally free
yes I'm free, I'm free to become one with the sea
can't you see, I'm finally free
I'm finally, finally free
Track Name: Hard Stillin'
Back in the neighborhood
we're stillin' something good
and if you think I should
we could make ends meet

in the back of my car
you'll find some mason jars
and if you miss the bar
pick yourself a treat

I'll give you a card to show
trust you to keep it low
tell no one where you go
when you leave at night

find yourself at a dead-end
you'll know for whom to send
whiskey is your best friend
when you're out of luck

[Chorus]
We've been doing the best that we can
in these times that prove so hard
and if you'd be so kind as to take my hand
I'll show you where the places are

[Bridge]
oh if they should ask you
forget what you've seen here tonight
oh and if your alibi should fail you
you were never here and nor was I

if you want to take it up
we've got the potent stuff
straight out of Canada
it'll knock you out

oh you know you need me
your bottles empty
I have what you don't have

[Chorus]

oh you know you need me
your bottles empty
I have what you don't have

oh you know you need me
your bottles empty
I have what you don't have
