Track Name: Brand New Vision Sun
Like a horse, like a prisoner,
Like a door, brand new vision,

I'll hide like the sun,
shine like the sunrise on the dawn of all the stars together.

Like a worm, like a cryptic sign,
Like a hole, brand new vision sun.

Black hearse to the boss.
The dawn of our new vision sun.
It's gone, for how long?
The dawn of all the visions.

Hide like the sun,
Shine like the sunrise on the dawn of all the stars together.
Hide like the sun,
Ride on your lone black hearse.
It's gone, yet still we've got each other.

It's gone, yet still we've got each other. <3
Track Name: Last Ashtray (and I Don't Care)
I'm made of sin and I don't care.
There's no sense in being scared.
I see the night and the leaving day,
And enemies in my little friends.
I see the absence of the evidence,
And your little dance, oh, your little dance.

And I don't care, so I'm leaving you astray.

I see your face and I distress
The last request I left in your ashtray.
I see night and the leaving day,
And enemies in my little friends.
I see the absence of the evidence,
And your little prayer, oh, your little prayer for God, you know.

And I don't care, so I'm leaving you astray.
And I don't care cuz in the end there's no end, just ignorance.

Night and the leaving day,
Enemies and little friends.
Absence of evidence,
And I don't care. And I don't care.

I see the night and the leaving day,
And I don't care, so I'm leaving you astray.
Sense of evidence, the last request,
Regret I left in your ashtray.

I see the night and the leaving day,
And I don't care, so I'm leaving you astray.
Sense of evidence, the last request,
Cuz in the end, just ignorance.
Track Name: Endless
Hanging, hoarding, howling overexcited, exhilarant existence.
Roaming, running on the road
and dreaming numbers, words and horses.
Voices and noises,
Up the dosage, I wanna fall harder.
I'll die and be another famous rockstar.

I wish I'd knew how it ended,
But what you wish, you can't have it.
I wish I'd knew how it ended,
But my future it's over, endless.

Signs and sightnings, sounds and symbols,
fainting on the father figment,
Morning sickness, mortal weakness, this hangover.
I'm still sober, it's not over.
I don't care, I wanna fall harder.
I'll live another day and get corrected.

I wish I'd knew how it ended,
But what you wish, you can't have it.
I wish I'd knew how it ended,
But my memory has faded, jaded,
Faint me softly; In fear hold me,
Dearly, oddly, I'm drowning, endless.

I wish I'd knew how it ended,
But what you wish, you can't have it.
Track Name: Dot
Sometimes you can't even see
the forest for all the trees
But you should at least try
to leave everything alright.

Sometimes you just can't even think.
Worries as you fall asleep.
You should try to at least believe
Tomorrow will be sunny.

Love it for what it is
Not for what it should be
It won't take you long to see,
Love it for what it is.

Sometimes you can't even grasp
the meta-narrative behind
the absurd, the grim and the grotesque,
Tomorrow we will be OK.

Tomorrow will be OK.

Fear it for what it is
Not for what you think it is
What's the frequency to see
Love it for what it is.
Track Name: Lizzy in the Air with Bullets
Lizzy in the air with bullets,
I picture you with a gun and I shiver,
Somebody has tried to kill you.
With dangerous dreams and marmalade quivers.

Stand again, rose of delusion, and kill!
Those rings between your toes,
She's the girl under the sonic beam,
Hear she goes.

Lizzy in the air with bullets,
She's on the floor, in a bind,
Another round for the killers.
I think I'm gonna lose my mind.
Track Name: Splendr
今日。明日はいつもクリスマス。
私は街に行きます。
私はあなたの妻だ。
私は車を求めています。

今日は海で溺れています。
私は赤いドレスを着ます。
水に身を投げる。
この時代の終わりです。
愚かな美。

愚かな美。
幸せ、憎い。
あなたの不幸はあなたのせいじゃない。

あなたの不幸はあなたのせいじゃない。
Track Name: Suntimes
I am a holy grenade,
Exploding in twenty-five,
Going down time,
Ready steady be made.
I am a dogma-star,
In water love we dive,
Going down time,
Ready steady you die.

I dress like a racoon and fight.
I dress like a racoon and fight.
I dress like a racoon and fight.
One day you die.

I die— recordarte tu,
I try— de olvidarte tu.
I have no volution, you,
I die— de mirarte luz.

I dress like a racoon and fight.
I dress like a racoon and fight.
I dress like a racoon and fight.
One day you die.

I die— recordarte tu,
I try— de olvidarte tu.
I am revolution, you,
I die— de mirarte luz.
Track Name: Those Spoken Loves
Those spoken lovers, where do they go?
I feel them stop and let go.
Everybody's hopes are broken.
Come and grow older with this empty solitude,
You'll be in my soul, a prisoner,
can't feel remorse or love for you.
See me lie, hurt and cry for my excess,
You'll see my face in twilight,
I'm your nightmare and your worst desire.
All those suspects are leaving you off the track,
No, I can't dance with your stance,
Just be thankful I'm not leaving you.

Look outside of the portal, into the light,
You'll see me shout our names and
In the water, I'll violently drown.
But if you go with me, we will never stop,
I'll see you try and die
for love is letting us band apart.
I'll go, listen closely, but just for long enough
To hear me stop breathing,
For I can hear those fears spoken
From your sweet mouth of naïve sincerity.
Okay, where do they go? To fear who?
Everybody. All those unspoken loves.

Your sweet mouth of naïve sincerity.
Okay, where do we go? To fear who?
Everybody. All those spoken loves.
