Track Name: Constructing Sacred Ground
EXPERIENCE PAST SPACE AND TIME
LEAVING COLOR COLORBLIND
MELT INTO A PLACE UNSEEN
WHERE CHAOS BECOMES SERENE

OH
THIS IS MAKING SOUND
CONSTRUCTING SACRED GROUND
OH
THIS IS MAKING SOUND
CONSTRUCTING SACRED GROUND

THIS FEELING IM SCRATCHING
HAS LED INTO MY OVERREACTING
IF I COULD JUST LET GO
I WOULD BE BETTER OFF FROM THE GET GO
BUT HERE I AM, MY DEMISE AT HAND
FALLING INTO ANOTHER LAND

OH
THIS IS MAKING SOUND
CONSTRUCTING SACRED GROUND
OH
THIS IS MAKING SOUND
CONSTRUCTING SACRED GROUND

CATCH ME
CATCH ME
Track Name: "I Bet You Won't Eat This Worm"
These black and bloody eyes
I’m not wearing a disguise, they are real
The realest things that ever were
It could be in me, him, and her
Do you know the feeling that I speak about?
It’s the one that makes you feel like you’re the one who’s been left out

Open up your eyes
Appearances aren’t hard to see
Easy to hypnotize
When you are half man half machine

The snake is crawling slowly and constricting tighter
You think that you’re a fighter?
Cause you seem to be getting whiter
Look deep into their soul
Then you can take control

Open up your eyes
Appearances aren’t hard to see
Easy to hypnotize
When you are half man half machine
Open up your eyes
Appearances aren’t hard to see
Easy to hypnotize
When you are half man half machine

Is this the thing that you want?
Is this the thing that you need?
Is this the thing that you want?
Ventriloquy?
Is this the thing that you want?
Is this the thing that you need?
Is this the thing that you want?
Ventriloquy?
Track Name: Vandross
HOW DO I DO THIS?
IT’S WHAT THE COOL KIDS DO
I’M FLOATING IN A DREAM
COULDN’T GET HERE WITHOUT YOU

HOW DID I GET HERE?
SHOULD I CHANGE MY MIND?
SHOULD I HAVE SOME FEAR?
CAUSE I’M FEELING FINE
MOMENTS REMEMBERED, I DON’T KNOW HOW
WHEN WE WERE THERE, COULDN’T STAY WITH NOW

RETURNING TO THIS PLACE
THAT I’VE COME TO KNOW SO WELL
FIGURING OUT WAYS
THAT WE CAN COVER UP THE SMELL

HOW DID I GET HERE?
SHOULD I CHANGE MY MIND?
SHOULD I HAVE SOME FEAR?
CAUSE I’M FEELING FINE
MOMENTS REMEMBERED, I DON’T KNOW HOW
WHEN WE WERE THERE, COULDN’T STAY WITH NOW

LOSING OXYGEN
NEVER THOUGHT IT’D BE THIS FUN
SOMETHING TO BE GAINED
FROM BUILDING WEAKER LUNGS

HOW DID I GET HERE?
SHOULD I CHANGE MY MIND?
SHOULD I HAVE SOME FEAR?
CAUSE I’M FEELING FINE
MOMENTS REMEMBERED, I DON’T KNOW HOW
WHEN WE WERE THERE, COULDN’T STAY WITH NOW
Track Name: Please, Don't Act So Lonely
Why do you act like you don’t have a thing?
Why do you act like you forgot that you could sing?
Something in you’s changed
The work has overwhelmed the things that made you whole
Life has rearranged
Making you estranged to the mantle of your soul
The mantle of your soul

We had everything that you ever wanted
Everything seeming worthy are the things that leave you haunted
You should’ve listened close to the fire in your heart that told you “Make it whole”
You got another chance
To change the fact that you put yourself on the mantle of your soul

Do I have to tell you once again?
Do I have to tell you once again? And again?
Do I have to tell you once again?
Everything won’t work out in the end
If you act like you don’t have a friend
Nothing will work out in the end
If you don’t have and if you don’t be a friend
Track Name: Money Cannot Buy You Silence
There’s blood that’s drippin’ through the barrels
The heart of life, well, it ain’t always so sterile
Different week, a different name
Everytime, the same old game
Yet another shrew to tame

I am exactly what I am
I’ve been exactly what I’m s’posed to be
You can always try your hand at violence
But keep mind, money cannot buy you silence

Looking out across a vast and empty ocean
Listened to a witch who sold me magic potions
To take away the things I’ve seen
To make it fresh and new and clean
But you can’t wake up if you’re livin’ dreams

I am exactly what I am
I’ve been exactly what I’m s’posed to be
You can always try your hand at violence
But keep mind, money cannot buy you silence

There’s blood in the barrels…
Money cannot buy you silence
No
Money cannot buy you silence
No
Money cannot buy you silence
No
Money cannot buy you silence
No

I am exactly what I am
I’ve been exactly what I’m s’posed to be
You can always try your hand at violence
But keep mind, money cannot buy you silence
