Track Name: Come Up
You held me there composure of a king
I couldn’t speak
If I tried
A throne of rope, ivy, and twine
An empire, of willow shrines

And when I finally come up
will you hold be like that once
When we burned like martyrs

(“Oh”) … and when I
And when I finally come up
Will you hold be like that once
When we burned like martyrs

Another kingdom fell
on self
envy
echoing perfect irony
stuck on repeat
circling

And when I finally come up
will you hold be like that once
When we burned like martyrs

(“Oh”) … and when I
And when I finally come up
Will you hold be like that once
When we burned like martyrs

(“Oh”) … and when I
And when I finally come up

Listen, listen, listen my ransom
given by
the one who’s hands are cuffed
call it, call it, call it unheard of
are you mine
and when I finally come up
Will you hold be like that once
When we burned like martyrs

(“Oh”) … and when I
And when I finally come up
Will you hold be like that once
When we burned like martyrs

(“Oh”) … and when I
And when I finally come up
Will you hold my hand my love?

(“Oh”) … and when I
And when I finally come up
Will you hold be like that once
When we burned like martyrs
When we burned like martyrs
When we burned like martyrs
Track Name: Able Minded Men
Behind the wall, of the garden
You pondered on, the concept
Of the able minded men
The scholars, architects, and the scientists
And you wondered if
Their allegiance
Could be bought

Well I'll tell you here, definitive, definitively not
Cause they'll gaze at wonders alight in the dark

Arrows of gold, and poison
Both were found, in the postmortem
Of the enlightenment,
The renaissances, and the self-conscious
The post-modernists,
Tearing even this thing apart

Well I'll tell you here, definitive, definitively not
‘Cause they'll gaze at wonders alight in the dark

And you named yourself the figurehead
To stand for what our fathers couldn’t take
It makes a damn good parament
Betray, and use the cash to buy your…

To buy your…
To buy your…
Buy your grave

To buy your
To buy your
To buy your
Buy your grave

Well I'll tell you here, definitive, definitively not
‘Cause they'll gaze at wonders alight in the dark

And you named yourself the figurehead
To stand for what our fathers couldn’t take
It makes a damn good parament
Betray, and use the cash to buy your grave
Track Name: Keep Time
In the night they’d keep there
In your lair melody
And you would run wild
Through a twilight morning
The fur trees and their seeds
And you would run wild
And you would run wild

But you don’t have to keep time
You’re not lost
Every sound you make
It fills the space up
And you don’t have to keep time
You’re not lost
Every string you pull
You are the only one

Like, like, everything that you want
You want, you want

And I know you felt it
The dark tick of time
But dear it's been gone for a while
And the things you spoke of
Your breath soft with wine
And we can just hide for a while

We can just hide for a while

And you don’t have to keep time
You’re not lost
Every sound you make
It fills the space up
And you don’t have to keep time
You’re not lost
Every string you pull
You are the only one

Like, like, everything that you want
Like, like, everything that you want
You want, you want

It fills the space up
And you don’t have to keep time
You’re not lost
Every sound you make
It fills the space up
And you don’t have to keep time
You’re not lost
Every string you pull
You are the only one
Track Name: Curtain Call
When it comes back,
The analysis, the rhetoric
Semantics
Is that all we were

Darling, darling, come down
Darling, darling, come down, come down

And the curtain call
Your father's final pride
And it all comes back
You close your eyes
Your heartbeat keeping time
And it all comes back
Mnemosyne,
An audience on high
And it all comes back
All comes back
All comes back tonight
You're the very last to finally bow
The very last tonight
The very last tonight come down

Like a labyrinth
On the inside, not a far cry
from nonsense
I'll stick, with every right

Granted, granted, silence
Granted, granted, devine, devine

And the curtain call
Your father's final pride
And it all comes back
You close your eyes
Your heartbeat keeping time
And it all comes back
Mnemosyne,
An audience on high
And it all comes back
All comes back
All comes back tonight
You're the very last to finally bow
The very last tonight
The very last tonight come down

And when the sun goes down
And the darkness, it surrounds you
You’ll hear that bittersweet sound
For the evening, it adores you
It adores you, it adores you

(“Oh”s)

And the curtain call
Your father's final pride
And it all comes back
You close your eyes
Your heartbeat keeping time
And it all comes back
Mnemosyne,
An audience on high
And it all comes back
All comes back
All comes back tonight
You're the very last of nine
The very last of nine
Of nine...
