Track Name: Falling
back in the days, just the same old song,
trying to think nothing, to get along.
pilot light’s weak, it was about time,
to either my catch my breath or lose my mind.
good times were gone, I couldn’t get them back,
my whole life felt like a cul-de-sac.
day in and day out, it was all the same,
you either break the rules or you lose the game.

i’d rather serve minors in some old shack,
just get this damn monkey off my back.
eternal darkness, it’s more than a game,
when every hour is so damn lame.

cut the cord, let this vision end,
it’s either that or to make a stand.
(and) while there’s a place and time,
it’s not here nor now, too much on the line.
and this guiding light, best seen in the dark,
starts out quite dim, more like a spark.
because it’s at night, that we see best,
first order is to get some rest.
Track Name: Sigma Bands
how we fit new information into existing knowledge,
how we remember and how we forget,
how our consciousness fades
and eventually disappears.
how we fade and eventually disappear.

interactions between cells,
not with our surroundings.
bursts of activity following muscle twitching.
neurons firing briefly at a high rate.
slow or absent eye movement.

consolidate new memories.
fill in the blanks.
sigma bands.
erase old memories.
our brain firing blanks.
sigma bands.
Track Name: Slow Wave
an altered state,
in which dreams are rare.
a mindset more organized,
close to real life.

most restful phase,
behind some haze.
shutting down the brain,
toning down the pain.

tend and befriend,
not flight or fight.
healing of the body,
improvement of the mind.

the night does not belong to lovers,
because the night belongs to us.
don’t touch me now, don’t dare to,
because the night belongs to us.
when the day belongs to haste,
and the night belongs to lust,
tell me which part of our lives is it exactly
that really does belong to us?

the 70s are over now for nearly half a century,
we just seem to be stuck in time.
it's been a long trip and it sure has been weird,
anyhow, we're just stuck in time.
Track Name: Fantasy
losing control over some matter, losing control over ourselves.
close our eyes to see what matters, close our eyes to see ourselves.

upon nightfall, things will get better, in this darkness that sets us free.
No control, no things that'll matter, everything is just plain to see.

upon nightfall, things will get better, in this darkness that sets us free. No control, no things that'll matter, when we dream is when we are free.

upon nightfall, we will be free, surrender to the night with me.

retreat and rest, recover and restore.

upon nightfall, we will be free, surrender to the night with me.
upon nightfall, we will be free, in this darkness that lets us see.
upon nightfall, we will be free, surrender to the night with me.
upon nightfall, we will be free, in this darkness that sets us free.
Track Name: Read-Only Memories
eyelids
made of soft tissue
a wide screen
for these hard issues

it’s warmer on the outside
it’s colder on the inside

muscles
randomnly twitching
no slow waves
the whole body itching

it’s warmer on the outside
it’s colder on the inside
it’s safer on the outside
it’s scary on the inside

wake up
let go
wake up

heart rate
out of control
breathing
out of control

deep sleep
old guard
deep sleep
old guard

the nightmare continues
the nightmare continues
Track Name: Saddle
¶ Working the local 7-Eleven ¶ Blank cheques, blank stares ¶ You get the picture, you get the idea ¶ The kind of picture you need to bear ¶ working from 9 to 5. Escape from planet here, escape from planet now ¶ Escape from the planet of the robot monsters.
Track Name: Deep
¶ You got a view out there as wide as a Hans Zimmer score for a movie yet to be written ¶ yet this coffee table looks like it's made for coffee table books ¶ What about this algae story of yours you try to hook up girls with? ¶ Want to share? ¶ So you did seven years at Folsom and now you're saying you're never going back? ¶ That's pretty much what Fleetwood Mac said ¶ although "playing in prisons" was never their kind of style ¶ Bachman Turner Overdrive ¶ that's more like it ¶ Although they played Manitoba, which is in Canada ¶ I don't know if that makes such a difference ¶ but at least they got better beards ¶ than that ferocious goatee on your chin.
Track Name: Dinger
¶ Old lions ¶ this is your kingdom ¶ city of lights ¶ spreading like cancer ¶ into the night ¶ And your scions ¶ looking for answers ¶ in this valley of blight ¶ Old blood hounds ¶ stuck in a kennel ¶ you build all by yourself ¶ There's a key, a key ¶ it is hidden in plain sight ¶ but I guess you'll never find ¶ Beating in your lover's chest ¶ but I guess you'll never find ¶ Empathy was yesterday ¶ today you waste my fucking time.
