Track Name: The Utopian
The scene plays out
In his mind
Vestment worn of
Reformer
Tasks himself
To redirect the
Alpheus

Will we ever survive
A utopian world
Will we survive
Every utopian world

The hum lingers on
Clashing notes sustained
The peach blossom spring
The death of the apostate

By himself
Will diagnose and
Prescribe

Will we survive
Every utopian world

The hum lingers on
Clashing notes sustained
The peach blossom spring
The death of the apostate
Track Name: The Hum
Our days are spent at windows
Peering past all those who
Came before
We trace indelible lines
Fingerprints on the glass

The satellites hum and no one hears
Their solitary echoes in the night
Melodies crafted by better men
Songs which will last lifetimes
But the satellites hum and no one hears
Track Name: Weave/Unweave
The melody a tapestry
A thousand blocks of sound
Weave unweave
Mallet on wood
Staccato hits fall, four at a time
Weave unweave
Your movements are science
These moments are art
Weave unweave
Unbraiding symbols on paper
Landscapes travel on air
Weave unweave

Singular
Wander
You’ll find your way
Home
Signs are blank
At crossroads
You'll find a new
Home
Burn the lamplight
Unthread the cosmos
You'll find your way
Home
This melody
Which you hum
Will guide me to
You

A tapestry of flesh
Millions of carbon threads
Weave unweave
Flesh, muscle, bone
Your flesh on mine, release this night
Weave unweave
Artistry gives way to
A new found inquiry
Weave unweave
Unveiling time's cruelty
Be there with me as I
Weave and unweave
Track Name: Silence So Clear
Just ahead
You see
Something I don't
Opportunity
To be
Something else
Just behind
You see
Something we can’t
Pain apparition
Whipping you
With insults unheard

Silence so clear

Just a hum
Your voice
Echo in my ear
Distortion’s cry
Obscures every dream
Behind the veil
Just a fable
Always told
Fainter each year
If the ache
Subsides
Will you wake?

Silence so clear
The distance grows each year
