Track Name: Our Flames, Flaming
Relax, our engines aren't even started yet
And I haven't begun to get hot just yet
Calm down, we haven't even gotten off the ground
And I can't even tell myself now
How those engines are cold

But that's alright, our flames did not ignite
I can see at night when the sky opens up just right
We try to get it right

Hold up
You know I ain't even grown up yet
But I can surely take a guess as to how
It will turn out in the end
So step back
You're gonna give yourself a heart attack
I just want to take a few back, and that is
Those months spent with the engine

But that's alright, our flames did not ignite
I can see at night when the sky opens up just right
We try to get it right
Track Name: Black Hole
And so it goes
Your body stretched out against the stars
The space between dimples and scars
Doesn't matter anymore
And so it goes
I'm trapped here forever
On the horizon
For all to see, I'm not me
I am here, I am gone

And so it goes
I'm slipping into a black hole
And I don't know
If I'll be back again
Some day soon
And so it goes
I'm trapped here forever
On the horizon
For all to see, I'm not me
I am here, I am gone
Track Name: Milky
Oh, fate
Has caught us making milky miracles together
Fate
Has wiped our clammy hands with Spanish leather
and that's alright
We can flex or not if we like
We can frequent public places if we like

Fate has caught us pouring milky miracles together
Fate has sought to intertwine our lively tethers
We can choose to follow through if we like
We can frequent public places if we like

Fate has caressed our rosy cheeks with a pigeon feather
and that's alright

Oh, Fate
Has smoked my meager soul with tactful pleasure
Track Name: Too True, Quiet
I've been hanging out here on the Rhean satellite, I can't hear at all
A flutter in my hear turns to shudder in the dark, it is quiet now
It took so long to get here and I can't even make a sound
I'm fighting for air anyway and I'm going down

Oh, it is quiet now
I really mean it when I say it's quiet now

Well you'll never guess it baby but I've made up my mind, I'm moving out now
I want to take my time in the Titan mines and I can see it now
It will take so long to get there but I don't care how
I'm fighting for air anyway but it's going south

Oh, it is quiet now
I really mean it when I say it's quiet now

Well you'll never guess it baby but I've made up my mind, I've had enough of this
I want to disappear to Europan sphere and lay low now
It will take so long to get there but I want to go now
And I'm fighting for air anyway but it's an uneven bout

Oh, it is quiet now
I really mean it when I say it's quiet now
Track Name: Olive Oil
Who says this capsule is a prison?
Not when an avocado is a woman
Not when a mountain turns to brussel sprout
You know that all we've got
is freeze dried shit in stock
and I'm about to blow my top

All I want is just a little shot
Of Olive Oil

Who says this capsule's getting old?
Not when bad tomato turns around to gold
Houston tells us just to do as we're told
Golden tomato
Avocado Woman
One good, hot meal in front of me

All I want is just a little shot,
I want a little taste
Of Olive Oil

All I wanted was a taste
Pour a little bit more on my plate
Track Name: Ring
I've been thinking about you all day long
And I brought my ring to give
Watch you smile as you put it on
On the index where it belongs
And I've been gone for so long
But in space I can still write songs
And I want to give
I want to give you my
I want to give you my ring

I've been thinking about you all night long
But it's all the same up here
Watch you smile as I'm coming down
To planet Earth where I belong
And I've been gone for so long
But in space I can still write you a song
And I want to give
I want to give you my
I want to give you my ring

Hey lady, I'm over here
Skipping across the stratosphere
And I'm only 210 miles away
I have to stay, but thats okay
I told you I would eat you up

And here is my ring
I put it on when I sing
When we sing
Track Name: Give Thanks
Love, you hit the nail on the head of that dove
Love, you stuck a finger through the key hole in that beating mud
Love, you sucked the life out of me with that puckering bud
And I say hey
You're no longer sweet pea
Just sour and snowy to me
No more delicately
Singing out those words to me
And even so
Even so
I want to stop and give thanks
To the alien overlords
They brought us here on the back of a seed

It was the seed that sprung the roots
that grew the tree
We shake the branches and the leaves
I pluck the fruit that I want to eat
And so I stop and give thanks
They still brought you here to me

Hey, you sowed the seed of my heart in the month of may
Hate, sometimes you beg a broken hand to stay
Hey, it was just the stress that led my heart astray
And I say
You're no longer sweet pea
Just sour and snowy to me
No more delicately
Singing out those words to me
And even so
Even so
I want to stop and give thanks
To the alien overlords
They brought us here on the back of a seed

It was the seed that sprung the roots
that grew the tree
We shake the branches and the leaves
I pluck the fruit that I want to eat
And so I stop and give thanks
They still brought you here to me
Track Name: Terrafying
Friend and Foe alike
All reduced to fly ash despite
My best effort to care
I'm trying to be good for all the dead
But I don't have to be good
And it's like 95 birds are flying me home
But home is now red
And I'm alone
And it is terrafying to me

But I find myself out here
Wanting to become
The great god, Mars

Plow and sow alike
All weigh a little more despite
My best attempt to lift them up again
I'm trying for my family and friends
But I don't have to be good
And it's like 700 cows are calling me home
But milk is now red
And I'm alone
And it is terrafying to me

But I find myself out here
Wanting to become
The great god, Mars

I left a lot behind
from a former life of mine
I'm not the only one around
With my helmet to the ground
I left a lot behind
From a former life of mine
And I haven't the time
To stack those bodies high
