Always 03:41
if you see me low come by, say hello insight's not waiting for truth to bestow I'm always changing you always cross my mind every single time grow in the light, it's not hard to be true, it's easy if you see me low come by, say hello insight's not waiting for truth to bestow I'm always changing when obscene absurdity surrounds you and me you're already home if you know that you're growing I'm always changing

The Vision 04:18
Oh love, stay for a while I've been moved by the tunes in your smile I want you, I need you, the vision, the truth You Ancient sea thing, ghosts in your song I've been moved by the portal that you come from I want you, I need you, the vision, the truth You

Waver 02:31
Waver you will, my only soul, I've known for a while, the power inside Savor the thrill, my only soul, I've known for a while, the power inside Waver you will, my only soul, I've known for a while, the power inside

Lord, I'll save myself from all the sin I see Piety can't quell the noise inside of me Love, build this pyre of log, just to watch it burn I will love you now, even knowing I could turn 'Cause all you do is all you are, until you empty too I think I lost my head again... will it ever be the same? I think I lost my head again... will it ever change? 'Cause all you do is all you are, until you empty too I think I lost my head again... will it ever be the same? I think I lost my head again... will it ever change? I am the blackest sheep... they will never get me.. yeah! I think I lost my head again, but I don't bow to anything.

This Life 02:11
This life, it is a real one Watch the push and pull, and get to know the sky But this human kind, always high on some human type of hype- Gotta get control of love and the supermind Can you feel the spirit tingle down your spine?
8.
Saw You 04:44
Is it just in my head? I saw you fade away from us I saw you fade away Away Nananana... I have waited so long to feel this type of love. You got me like I wanted.. You are translucent blue, it's crazy what you do A transcendent high, pools in your eyes like all the time It's lifting up my mind, I'm burning like a fire I surrender to your eyes You, I
9.
The Genius 05:10
Thank you for watching my eyelids with love, Their deep trove and your blooming rose. I've been reeling from feeling these ideas all the time Under some subterfuge that we all live by My tongue's touching truth just as close as it can Holding strands from some loom in my hand I'm dripping with words, you're winding melody, Time weaves light just as fast as it can. And I've seen it high, and I've gone low, I'm getting these bones back on track.. But these visions just keep coming back. But our love is genius, our love is true Our love is calling, our love is proof. Love was the holiest of Holies of all, Now I'm mad, because that was the genius But you were still questioning, and that's how they made us think That we were the crazy ones, insane! Well when the truth is just punishable, contextual, you know, You were the one who saw various realities.. It's all coming back again, it always comes back, Its the truth.

Final Form 04:05
If you see your shadows in the dawn, Don't believe it is your final form If you see your shadows in the dark, Don't believe it is your final form. Ooooh

about

This album is a love letter to weirdos, to anyone who knows they’re a little different. It’s about realizing that life is weird, you are weird, and weird is an OK and beautiful way to be.
