Track Name: Ω
Curves, sparks, straight arcs.
We disembark.
Track Name: A Downstroke
Shadows are dragged by
the loneliest light
air leaves the balloon
the ropes, untied.

A downstroke
from giant skies
shouted in our ears,
in bright smoke
we improvise
just to make it reappear.

Look, from this angle
everything is black,
ropes are entangled
I can't go back.
Shadows are dragged by
my lonely machine
only waiting
for that light to be seen.
Track Name: Wasteland
Feverishly I stray on these pavements
a genuine way to not exist
and galaxies of something different
are rumbling in the chest.
Nevertheless I shout from this corner
to the orchestra of sleeping men
to those who possess the slightest shortfall
breathing oxygen.

Pathways I review
within these crowded avenues are turning me into
a wasteland.
Sunstruck and moonsick,
these golden climes are turning tricks,
I'm slowly sinking into

Feverishly the seconds stay far-flung
luring us all to stray again.
In this mastery I'm long gone
breathing oxygen.

Pathways I review
within these crowded avenues are turning me into
a wasteland.
Unended sentence
allow me the magnificence
to burst out of my room
at firsthand.
Track Name: Tie The Great Uncommon
Infancy we cry obviously.
True deceit belongs to the elite.
Tie the great uncommon,
clasp the tragedy.

Dying things filtrate inventive streams.
Your decease: swallowing us at ease.
Tie the great uncommon,

Farflung children, do you see
how these corridors bleed?
Through the ashes we repeat:
thousand bottomless beats.
Track Name: Walk-In-Closet
Step inside my hideaway
where inner enemies elope.
Wrap yourself in dim cascades
as you put on my wardrobe.

In this walk-in-closet
I found a universe unseen.
In this walk-in-closet
there is a nature in between.
Track Name: Descent
Hayley jumped me
below and beyond
the canyon willow
soon she'll be gone.
And suddenly a flashlight
beaming my eyes to see a lonely kite
and a million raging shark-bites
gave her another name.

Across the bridge
behold: the glitch of my old habits.
Under water! Under water it begins.

Evolving parts
plunder the arts,
a vultures presence.
Oh my daughter! Oh my daughter you should know,
some day she'll return.
