Track Name: Keep My Body Moving
I never thought I’d become so recluse
Every time insanity scores I turn into
A useless creature confined to this bedroom
A sullen girl dreaming up memoirs of my youth

I have to keep my body moving
I have to keep my body moving

I never thought I’d become so mute
Every time I open my mouth I turn into
A bruised up chest and a mangled
A putrid taste, a tongue of doubts
Every time i try to speak I lose sight of
how, of how
how, of how

But, I have to keep my body moving
I have to keep my body moving

We make amends we hold grudges
We never say sorry or we say it too much
We either listen or we wait to speak
We sometimes lend an ear and we can’t hear a thing

These feet won’t rest till I get my rhythm back
These feet won’t rest till I get my rhythm back
These feet won’t rest till I get my rhythm back
These feet won’t rest till I get mine

I have to keep my body moving
I have to keep my body moving
Track Name: Out of Control
Tattoos and cocaine nights under your eyes
Headlights drown in the sea of darkness
The desert never felt so quiet
You pulled out one letter, I slightly remember
The ink stained your left thigh
When the car spun right

Out of control
We're daring damage to spoil our goods
Just for fun
Out of control
I felt your heart beating under that hood
I remembered saying come on
It'll be fun

We don’t need anyone
We don’t need anyone
We don’t need anyone
We don’t need anyone

Smoke, stars, and tires
I tried to stop the fire
Dust spinning in a sea of light
The desert never felt so loud
I pulled out of the drivers side, but this was the adventure of life
The two of us, the two of us together

Out of control
We're daring damage to spoil our goods
Just for fun
Out of control
I felt your heart beating under that hood
I heard your voice saying go on
Just run

Crying out for someone
Crying out for someone
Crying out for someone
Crying out for anyone
Track Name: Butterfly Hunter
Butterfly Hunter
Butterfly Hunter
Where did you go
They told me you were
Searching the mountain for a new set of wings
Where oh where oh where
Can i find a pair for a girl like me

Butterfly Hunter
Butterfly Hunter
Where did you go
I swear I saw you
Dancing like a bird does only in the pouring rain
Why oh why oh why
Can’t I be the same

The gods have nothing on us
With yours wings on my arm
We could tear the clouds apart
Migrate to the stars
Then honeymoon in galaxies far
Then make heaven some art

Butterfly Hunter
Butterfly Hunter
Butterfly Hunter
Where did you go
Track Name: Natural Disaster
Many moons ago
I was young and free, young and free
I had someone to be, someone to be

This wasn’t the plan but i heard
When you make one all God does is laugh
I can’t help but ask, so
Is ambition really only poison in a jar
Sitting on your shelf waiting to be mistaken for
What we think we are

Now I’m bound by fault lines
Yeah, I’m shaking every time I speak
Yeah, I'm shaking every time we meet

And the earthquake, the earthquake is coming for me
While the rest of the world stands still watching
their watching, their watching

Oh, many moons ago
i was young and free, young and free
I had someone to be, someone to be

Nothing happens how it’s supposed to
Because what’s supposed to never happens at all
There’s a string in that idea
How can I not feel attached?
Because what i got i never wanted
and what i wanted i, oh I never got

How can i breathe when i hate my own history
How can i breathe when i hate my own history

Now I’m bound by fault lines
Yeah, I’m shaking every time I speak
Yeah, I'm shaking every time we meet

And the earthquake, the earthquake is coming for me
While the rest of the world stands still watching
their watching, their watching

What more can we create
What more can we feel
What more can we fake
What more can we steal
What more can we create
What more can we feel
What more can we fake
What more can we steal
What more can we create
What more can we feel
…What more can i do?
…What more can i do?
…What more can i do?
Track Name: She Sells
She sells sea souls by the seashore

One fine collector of gypsy memories
Carrying scratch paper in her purse-pocket
She will catch your scent and trace a sketch

She’ll never roam where she’s meant to
Or ever come home when she’s told too
You see her own rules, rule her land

She sells sea souls by the seashore

It's a wasteland in the civilized streets,
Dispersed distant lovers
Tied together by telephone towers

Better off alone instead of anchored
Better to roam then shadow strangers home
You see, her first lover was lost at sea
And her heart her heart it still rings

Her chest crafts countless chemical cannons
Spitting out tongue twisted words
Her hands hold coughed up concrete
You see, each city took parts of her and gave her
Parts of it to keep

Each city took parts of her and gave her
Parts of it to keep

She sells sea souls no more
Track Name: Laugh While You're Here (Ft. Vasuda Sharma)
I could pray for humanity to human up
Quit sweeping under carpets
The tethered tangled trophy troubles of men
That I hold in my pressed palms rested on every breathe

You know with one step forward darling
We've taken two steps back

Seems to me we all just carry on
Quietly carrying or own disasters

But don't you know you should laugh while your’e here, right?
Laugh until your stomach hurts and all the butterflies
Cry, love, live
Until you have nothing more to give
Cry, love, live
Until you have nothing more to give

Fingerprints and DNA
What really makes up an atom anyway?
Boxed in bodies of skin, bones, blood and veins
Even the mind can’t scrape itself out
How did we end up so self-righteous thinking we can just

Wait around to be saved
Wait around, wait around
Stop looking up at the sky and waiting around
Wait around, wait around to be saved

You know with one step forward darling
We've taken two steps back

Seems to me we all just carry on
Quietly carrying or own disasters

But don't forget you know you should laugh while your’e here, right?
Laugh until your stomach hurts and all the butterflies
Have flown to find the middle of the earth
Cry, love, live until you have nothing more to give
Cry, love, live until you have nothing more to give
Nothing more to give
Nothing more to give
Cry, love, live
Nothing more to give
Cry, love, live
Track Name: How Far
Which do I bank on science or faith
Which do I try to land on solid ground or space
How far can I climb
How far would I fly
How far can I climb
How far would I fly

Why do we survive by only our hunger or thirst
Why trample through life in skinny straight lines
oh cause' this tight rope gets thinner & thinner
This tight rope of time
How far can I climb
How far would I fly
How far can I climb
How far would I fly

Let the wind carry your intention now and give in
To the voice of the earth its making sounds
The sound, the sound, the sound
(hums)
(do you hear it, do you hear it, do you hear it?)

So i learned to weather storms in silence now
Solicit my mind to rewire and rewind
And train my heart stop falling falling
In love with the girl i wish to be
You see we put rules inside gods mouth
To live without liabilities
But how will you exploit the hours and minutes and seconds
Between your entrance and exit
How will you exploit the hours and minutes and seconds
Between yours

How far will you climb, how far will you fly
How far can you climb, How far would you fly
How far will you climb how far will you fly
How far can you climb, How far would you fly

Do you let the wind carry your intention now?
And give in to the voice of the earth when it’s making sounds
oh the sound the sound the sound
(hums)
(do you hear it, do you hear it, do you hear it?)
