Track Name: The Dove's Letter
To my love
At the bottom of the ocean
The air, my love
In your lungs will pass
Let it bubble
To the surface
And let the ocean
Take its place

Kill me waves
I am a
Wretch of a man
Undertow
Tie the knot
I am so
Weightless
Over the ocean floor
Gravity
Be released
Blow me along
With humanity
Rush like flames
Over me
I am a cedar
A burning tree
Oh great wind
On the sea
All lots you cast
They fall on me
Throw me out
To the sea
My death will end
This calamity
Track Name: Good Cannibalism
Beautiful one
Left in the sea
Thought you were gone
Peace be with me
And with your net
You pulled me through
Tilapia wet
And gasping for you

Your flesh my bread
Your blood my wine
Over my head
Your love divine
This is a blood baptism
I'm in love with good cannibalism

Loud trumpet sound
Crash of the sky
Born of the dead
Flashes on high
Head of the dragon
Oh, seven times
Head of the living
Oh, seven times

Your flesh my bread
Your blood my wine
Over my head
Your love divine
This is a blood baptism
I'm in love with good cannibalism
Track Name: White Sand Prisoner
You put your foot down in the sand
Wonder where the strike will land
Slain like martyrs in the snow
Dreams just seraphim should know
Feathers cover up these eyes
Whither past the open skies
Face of several things at once
The prince of peace verses a dunce
A lizard fast beneath the earth
Surfaced just to see the birth
Of the firstborn of the dead
Cradled, crown upon his head
In the bows of history
Things you want you have to need
And what I want called out to me

Hidden wonders of the past
Come to us upon a mast
Tethered to a shining pole
Dripping crimson down in whole
The debt is paid, its wiped away
The things of night came out in daylight
Fight the severe fight of love
Written on the shoulder
Above a million scribbled words
Sitting on stainless throne
The birds come back
Feather in the beak
This prison looks no longer bleak
Track Name: Colours
I am displayed
Out like a ghost
In an infinite plain
Won't you send me away
And grind up the gold
I am part
Of death's deepest plight
I am out in the night

Oooh
Ahhh

Great are your ways
Inside a capsule
I cannot contain
Won't you send us a wave
And light up the night's stoney sky
With Venus in sight
What a starry delight

Oooh
Ahhh

Ripples sustain
Into the sky
I can feel it refrain
Won't you cover me right
And give to the passengers
How I know
Would turn out right
Send me out on a kite

Oooh
Ahhh

Crust to the pain
Mantle to sanity's
Resonant remains
Won't you destroy
The surface of vanity's might
And raise up the Christ
Like the snake of the rite

Oooh
Ahhh

I'll pitch a tent for you
You and the holy two
Who you fulfilled
For whom you were set askew
All that I have for you
I'll be pierced through and through
Anywhere you set your feet
I will follow you
Lamp-stands upon the view
Arches of gold and blue
Warm, white radiance
Mirrors a one and two
Seven white horses flew
All around the cloud that drew
Faces all around
The mountain, all are unaware of whose
Hand is on the ocean mew
Guiding it to me and you
Scribbled in the sky
Like a pencil-written double-u
White hands cover you
Lavish you with ghostly hue
Carry off the black lies
With every color in a flue
Yes, I'll pitch a tent for you
All that I can think to do
For someone of stainless blood
Poured out as a sweeping due
Covered over broken resurrected brittle bones
That fall forever on their face
Into the colors
That will never fade away
Track Name: Ascent
I came down from the mountain
And my brother had taken my name
The beat kept moving on
But it all still sounds the same
Grinding down the cattle
In an effort to send rain
A child rests along
A quiet river bank
A hand upon his head
And a breast upon his lips
She brushed his hair across his face
And she kissed his head
With a passionate embrace
She put her hands on his face
With her claws around his neck
She put his face in the water
Face in the water
Face in the water
Face in the water
Blood red
I can see it now
I can see it now
I can see it now
But what have I done?
There's blood in the water
Blood in the water
Track Name: Kodiak Island
June 6th, 1912
Novarupta spewed
And killed all the mosquitos and bears
For three days
An ashy grey
Swallowed Three Saints Bay
But after death erupted
It had overkilled its stay
In Saint Paul
I write to you
Praying now for pain
Or else a light
Appear tonight
To take us all away
From this dreary land
A mighty hand
Upon us with its force
Would show us grace
But now His face
Lest I should melt away
A serpent's teeth
Within my feet
Damned or something worse
The natives cry
But who am I
To die without a scene?
No bloated blood
Misunderstood
What it is to be cursed
A blessed love
From up above
Shipwrecked upon the screen

In the Emerald Isle
Of ten thousand smokes
I'll talk to the flowers
About all the ghosts
That walk through the tall grass
And slip through the steel-glass skies
Heavenly sparrows
Surround seven narrow
Impressions in the face of the earth
They're painting the sky
With the blood of a silver sleeve
Ashes to ashes
Ocean to ocean
Everyone's falling down
Flashes and crashes
Lightning so frightening
Wait 'til it hits the ground
In ultraviolet
An elegant pilot
Carries the passengers
Up to the promised land
In a cloud of grey with a black hole haze
And in the starlight
It tortured the midnight clear
Cut straight through
The piercing black sky of my soul
Fire let your flames settle on the mount
Ashes to ashes
Ocean to ocean
Everyone's falling down
Flashes and crashes
Lightning so frightening
Wait 'til it hits the ground

Black eyes
Percieve sunshine
As a nuanced deception of the light
White eyes
See the night-time
As a period of time
Before the Sun sits on its throne

On this island
I am Shelikhov
Just subtract the furs
In this sunlight
I am Shelikhov
But I am the massacred
On this sacred
Stack, there is one goal
Simply to be numb
I won't let these
Waters keep me from home
By the lady and the word
Pioneer of the world
Pioneer of the world
Pioneer of the world
Pioneer of the world

Even if my body were engulfed
In the ash, I know that my old soul
Would be hidden in your open scars
Nothing that can separate your blood
From me......
Track Name: Sign of the Dove
Up on the mountain
At the center of the island
From the peak
You can see it all, you can see it all
Up on the shoulder
A million ton boulders
On the shore
Look infinitely small, infinitely small
Down from the pinnacle
To rest in the climax
Of the world
No rest at all, no rest at all
Into the ocean
Six white horses
And you
Can't see a thing, can't see a thing
Branches are waving
Voices displaying
A youth
Ignorant to truth, ignorant to truth
If they could understand
Peace and bloody hand
Stretched
From the heart of the Son, heart of the Sun

You are the starlight
You are the fish bite
You are the glare of the ocean at midnight
Corruption
Has never touched you at all
You are the rolling tide
You are the germicide
You are the warmth as I sleep by the fireside
I have
Seen the flames but never been burned
You are forever
You know the weather
Yesterday, today, tomorrow, and never
Have you failed
To travel the course of your tongue
You are the mountain
You are the fountain
You have a very overwhelming countenance
I can't
Begin to tell you it all
Track Name: The Silver Sea
Shake me awake
As we glide past the tide
And the leper draws near to the shore
The waves took a break
As the prince finally spake
And the blind eyes colored me in

Seeing beyond the end of the world
It's a mystery
Nearing the mountain that's just out of reach
On the silver sea

Let me go on
I can't hold on for long
I want life, not energy spent
No you can't leave
Such a legacy waits for you
Arms outstretched

Seeing beyond the end of the world
It's a mystery
Nearing the mountain that's just out of reach
On the silver sea

I am I am
I am all that you need
But there's more to me
Won't you go home
Leave behind all you've grown
In this world
And hold on to me

Seeing beyond the end of the world
It's a mystery
Nearing the mountain that's just out of reach
On the silver sea
Track Name: Dawn of the Spring
So much learned from an old fig tree
The ocean and the roaring sea
The nations in perplexity
History is about to be

If I saw your face, I'd melt like
If I saw your face, I'd melt like
If I saw your face, I'd melt like
Snow in the sun
At the dawn of the spring

On my face in a smoke-filled room
In the presence of six-winged creature
Lips could fertilize the ground around you
Alter's ashes free my lips

If I saw your face, I'd melt like
If I saw your face, I'd melt like
If I saw your face, I'd melt like
Snow in the sun
At the dawn of the spring
