Track Name: Chocolate Church
SHARKS DEVOUR SHEEP
YA KNOW THEY DO IT IN THEIR SLEEP
UNLESS WE PULL WOOL OVER THEIR
EYE/I AM NOT THE TREE
THAT YOU'VE IMAGINED ME TO BE
BUT I AM SO GLAD THAT YOU CLIMBED
BACK TO THE DAYS WHEN WE TRIED TO SEARCH
BY SUGAR CANDLE FOR THE CHOCOLATE CHURCH
COME ALONG X 3
CHOCOLATE CHURCH

IN A LIGHTNING FIELD
WITH A HORSESHOE ON MY HEEL
TO TRY TO KICK START MY DUMB LUCK
BOLTING AFTER WATER
SWEETENED BY THE RIVER'S DAUGHTER
BUT THERE'S NO WAY THAT SHE'S STUCK
BACK IN THE DAYS WHEN WE TRIED TO SEARCH
BY SUGAR CANDLE FOR THE CHOCOLATE CHURCH
COME ALONG X3
CHOCOLATE CHURCH
COME ALONG X3
CHOCOLATE CHURCH
Track Name: Cross-Cat to the Black Path
We move as one
with high school hearts,
feed wild geese,
and learn the art
of flying formations.

We marry storks
when we are young.
They give us wings,
we trade them thumbs
and begin our migration...

Cross-cat to the black path.
Cross-cat to the black path.
Cross-cat to the black path
farm.

Nobody knows
our troubled joys.
We kill the text
to save the voice
of our whole generation.

Kill the Text,
Save the Voice.
The black path leaves
no other choice
but to end the temptation.

Cross-cat to the black path.
Cross-cat to the black path.
Cross-cat to the black path
farm.

Whip your arms like roller derby
daisy chains of love and hate.
Whip your arms like roller derby
daisy chains of love and hate.
Whip your arms like roller derby
daisy chains of love and hate.
Whip your arms like roller derby
daisy chains of love and hate.

Cross-cat to the black path.
Cross-cat to the black path.
Cross-cat to the black path
farm.
Track Name: When You Asked
SEE YOURSELF AS A BABY GIRL OR BOY.
WHEN YOU ASKED TO BE BORN INTO THIS LIFE,
WHAT EXACTLY DID YOU ASK FOR?
OUR BABY IS THE SKY
AND THE SKY'S BABY ARE WE.
WE ONLY WISH THE CLOUDS
WOULD LEAVE THE TWO OF US TO BE.
NESTING HERE WITH MONSTERS MADE OUR NAME.
WHAT WAS A WORTHY JOURNEY
TURNED INTO A STUPID GAME.

WE RARELY DREAM ABOUT NATURE ANYMORE;
ONCE STRANDED IN THE JUNGLE,
AND NOW WE'RE ALWAYS LOST IN SCHOOLS AND STORES.
WE'RE BALLS OF ENERGY,
NOT BAGS OF CHEMICALS.
FOR MOST OF US THE DRUGS
STOPPED WORKING LONG AGO.
WHEN EVERYTHING IN NATURE SPIRALS DOWN,
WE'LL RIDE THE WILD RIVERS
FLOWING UNDERNEATH THIS TOWN.
Track Name: Flags
HANGING OUT AT OUR BROKEN LITTLE SHOW
IT'S SO CLEAR, IT'S SO CLEAR, IT'S SO CLEAR
TIME HAS COME TO GO
WHERE THE FLAGS COME DOWN
WHERE THE FLAGS COME DOWN

IN LIMBO LAND GETTING MEASURED FOR DISEASE
IT'S SO CLEAR, IT'S SO CLEAR, IT'S SO CLEAR
THE FOREST AIN'T THE TREES
WHERE THE FLAGS COME DOWN
WHERE THE FLAGS COME DOWN

COMMITTED TO THE WIND AND MARRIED TO THE SKY
IT'S SO CLEAR, IT'S SO CLEAR, IT'S SO CLEAR
HELLO NOW MEANS GOODBYE
WHERE THE FLAGS COME DOWN
WHERE THE FLAGS COME DOWN
Track Name: Concerning Naming Children
CONCERNING NAMING CHILDREN
AND THE ASCENSION OF US ALL
WE ARE CALLING HER ANDROMEDA
THIS FALL.
CONCERNING NAMING CHILDREN,
FORKED ANIMALS AND FOOLS,
WE ARE CALLING HIM HIERONYMUS
IN JEWELS.
OUR NAME IS OUR HOME,
OUR NAME IS OUR HOME.
BE HERE, BE GONE
OUR SWEET ANDROMEDA.
OUR NAME IS OUR HOME,
OUR NAME IS OUR HOME.
BE HERE, BE GONE OUR SWEET
HIERONYMUS.
ROAM.
Track Name: Lost Creatures Land
It's a sleepy toy on a haunted bed
I often think it's churchyard dead

It's a dear, dear beast with a rose red crown
It's something lost. It's something found.

Lost creatures land with their wings on fire
Lost creatures land with their nerves exposed
Lost creatures land at the stroke of midnight
Homeless drifters and shapeshifters

(Sleep in us, sleep on us, sleep in us, sleep on us.)

It's the wounded wind and a first aid dove
It's the afterlife of the underloved.

It's the perfect shape for a missing piece
It's a Christmas shootout with police.

This world unfurled from your heart to a girl,
now suddenly it's the oyster's pearl.

This globe unfolds round the boy that ya hold
but suddenly half the bed lays cold.
