Track Name: Yami no Mori
(1st verse)
In the deep and dark
The Colonel makes his mark
There are those who claim
That he has gone insane
Cause the Colonel hears
The universe in his ears
(Chorus)
Follow us in to the core
Where the beasts roar
the everyday will unwind
In the dark forest of the mind
(2nd verse)
In the shadows of the night
The instincts will take flight
Move like the animal that you are
With every worry end the spar
Into the self, be the explorer
As the Colonel says embrace the horror
(Chorus)
Follow us in to the core
Where the beasts roar
the everyday will unwind
In the dark forest of the mind
(Repeat Chorus Again)
Track Name: M.A.A. (Material Amity Is Antique)
A wall of tv screens
Show stimulating scenes
Strangers apart by sound
Spin the wheels around
Every thought in the air
Sent to all with no care
Oh no! Oh no! Oh no! No care!

You are a picture
An interactive fixture
I forget when we speak
Material amity is antique

Friends watch each other
waiting for lives to buffer
Existence measured in bits
Until a major organ quits
all your moments blend
Living in code with no end
Oh no! Oh no! Oh No! No End!

I am a picture
An interactive fixture
I forget when we speak
Material Amity is antique
(words during coda)
Oh My head it falls to pieces
Track Name: Holding My Breath
I walk to your place
You show your face
We go for a walk
Maybe have a talk
Then you go away
There goes my day
There goes my day

It's gonna be a crime
If I keep wasting my time
Waiting for you to come through
Holding my breath till I'm blue
Holding my breath till I'm blue

You say I'm a great friend
But these means won't justify this end
I'm not gonna be subtle
cause your not worth the trouble
No matter how much I seek
The outcome is always bleak

It's gonna be a crime
If I keep wasting my time
Waiting for you to come through
Holding my breath till I'm blue
Holding my breath till I'm blue
Track Name: Oh,What a Wonderful Machine!
LED lights red, yellow and green
Illuminate the solemn scene
The Technician, technician sits alone crying
His father, his father is dying
He puts together a device
That just might save his father's life

Oh, what a wonderful machine
It makes the rogue cells less mean
Such a kind and powerful thing
Maybe It'll make the heart clean

His father opened his eyes
His only words were very wise
"Son don't you live to save me.
Just be the best that you can be.
Love everything you can see.
In the end death makes us free."

Oh, what a wonderful machine
A light across the golden mean
We are all connected by a string
To this world we cannot cling

His father was buried today
The technician had nothing to say
He just held onto his wife
Inside she is growing a life
As the technician begets
Life's equation resets

Oh, what a wonderful machine
Gaze upon infinity serene
As the clock gives out a ring
Birth and death become routine
Track Name: We Could Be Perfect
I need, need your love
Like the scared need God up above
There are those who would pray
But I know I'll never have my way
Cause, If I broke,
I broke your heart
It would tear
Tear our world apart

Like the tongues of fire
My gospel of desire
A sacred written object
We could be perfect
We could be perfect

I would give, give you my all
Give you every single thing
Just to hear and feel those words
Until then hoping just hurts
I'm Just hesitating, I'm caught
I'm caught in the waiting

Like the Tongues of fire
My gospel of desire
A sacred written object
We could be perfect
We could be perfect

Saints are sinners who keep trying
So I'll love you when I'm dying
Like a mirror trying to reflect
I know we could be perfect
Like a mirror trying to reflect
I know we could be perfect
