In Love With Oblivion

Sycamore Tree

See the girl by the Sycamore tree
She knows she’s looking at me
She follows me down to the sea
She follows me into the sea

And I wanna know why
I wanna know why
I’m wondering why
I’m wondering why
I wanna know, wanna know why

She’s holding out both of her palms
She says you better not choose wrong
I just may push away the dawn
Tie the tongue that sings your favorite song

Chorus

See the girl by the Sycamore tree
She knows she’s looking at me
She follows me down to the sea
She follows me into the sea

Chorus


Through the Floor

Figures are forming
to find us a door
Numbers are trying
to say something more

She tried to find me
When I fell through the floor
She searched inside the earth
‘til she found me at the core

On the other side of space
Are the shapes that describe her face
On the other side of space
Are the shapes that trace your fate


Silver Sun

I lost my maiden when snow came on
I just could not keep her from loving the silver sun
Her figure disappeared in white, dissolved into the light

Before I could even say goodbye
Her body became the sky
Became the sky

I just could not keep her from loving the silver sun
Just could not keep her from loving the silver sun

Swept into the cast of a past December
The last thing I remember
When you saw me

I lost my maiden when the snow came on
I just could not keep her from loving the silver sun

Her figure disappeared in white
Dissolved into the light
Her figure disappeared in white
Dissolved into the light

Swept into the cast of a past December
The last thing I remember
Is us revolving


Alien Rivers

As sunken hopes sleepwalk charades
Drunken boats probe alien rivers
The wind shivers the deepest blues
As the severed jungle grows into
Glowing scenes, knowing scenes
Ever renewed

Annihilated by a flash of rapture
Burned into pure, pristine pasture
Perfect to prepare a disturbing paradise
Soak inside of the swirling skies and
Design the diamonds that will be my eyes as
Unfathomed futures, unfathomed futures
Go dreaming by

Resplendent circle swelling in the center
Absorbs my mind and it turns into antennae
Now time has abated; words are antiquated
My dreams fixations have been constellated

Appalling beauty, inhuman terrain
My god has gone or gone insane
Appalling beauty, inhuman terrain
My god has gone or gone insane

Sunken hopes sleepwalk charades
Drunken boats probe alien rivers
The wind shivers the deepest blues
As the severed jungle grows into
Glowing scenes ever renewed
Glowing scenes ever renewed


Half A Moon

Half a moon, half a man
Have this sun and have this land
But mind the blood there on your hand

I heard you have a tricky kiss
Adumbrate the lovers that penetrate your lips

Evening night we meet again
I’ll slay the sun if you take my hand
Evening night we meet again
I’ll slay the sun if you take my hand

I heard you have a tricky kiss
Adumbrate the lovers that penetrate you myths

Half a moon, half a man
Have this sun and have this land
But mind the blood there on your hand

I heard you have a tricky kiss
Adumbrate the lovers that penetrate your lips


Flying into the Sun

There’s a black hole behind these eyes
That takes everything with it when it dies

Until the stars decide to shine
We will recline in time together

It’s here we rest forever
But still we’ve yet to see
Elijah’s last endeavor
Was to mingle sun within the sea

Until death’s star decides to shine
We will recline in time together

There’s a black hole behind these eyes
That makes everything infinite when it dies
There’s a black hole behind these eyes
Absorbs every single instant until it dies

Until death’s star decides to shine
We will recline in time together
Until death’s star decides to shine
We will recline in time together
We will recline in time forever
We will recline in the together


Shake the Shackles

When will we discover
The place that we buried love
And resurrect all of the lovers
We’ve deprived so long of one another

Blinded to the future
Binds me to the past
Trying to shake the shackles
The fall had first forecast

The world has gone away
Pull the earth up over you grave
There’s nothing left to save
Pull the earth up over your grave

Fly me to the future
Bind me to the past
Trying to shake the shackles
The fall had first forecast

Tell me when will we discover
The place that we buried love
And resurrect all of the lovers
We’ve deprived so long of one another

Blinded to the future
Binds me to the past
Trying to shake the shackles
The fall had first forecast
The fall had first forecast


Precarious Stair

My sister and I descend
This darkening stair again
Find ourself without breath
Twisting to the left

Beneath burning beaches
Below rivers of tears
From the Earth’s darkest reaches
Come Man’s deepest fears
And this is where
New torments are prepared

We sing as a distant pair
But our song is stifled by the viscous air
We cling to precarious stairs and
Descend deep into nefarious layers

My sister and I descend
This darkening stair again
Find ourself without breath
Twisting to the left
And this is where
New torments are prepared

We sing as a distant pair
But our song is stifled by the viscous air
We cling to precarious stairs and
Descend deep into nefarious layers


Invisible City

Finding feathers in my extended hand
Hearing my heart defend its plan
I’ll fuck off from this festival of fiends
And harrow Hell ‘til all of my friends are free

She led me inside the sarcophagus
And begged me not to forget us
She fed beneath the metal mountain
And left me by the night surrounded

We know we know what happened to death
But I don’t have to say why
We know we know what happened to death
But I don’t have to say why

Finding feathers in my extended hand
Hearing my heart defend its plan
I’ll fuck off from this festival of fiends
And harrow Hell ‘til all of my friends are free

We know we know what happened to death
But I don’t have to say why
We know we know what happened to death
But I don’t have to say why


Blood Barons

I’ll buy me a graveyard of my own
Kill anyone who ever done me wrong
I’ll buy me a gun just as long as my arm
And I’ll fuck everyone who ever done me harm

Death’s what we live for
Is what she said to me, what she said

Good or bad, one can never tell
So just bury me way down deep in Hell
You know this story all to well
My heart is broken and I’m going to Hell

Death’s what we live for
Is what she said to me, what she said
Death’s what we live for

I’ll buy me a graveyard of my own
Kill anyone who ever done me wrong
I’ll buy me a gun just as long as my arm
And I’ll fuck everyone who ever done me harm


Prometheus at Large

In love with oblivion
To chaos I’m devoted
Prometheus at large
Each day my heart
Is re-exploded

And each night spent thus,
Domestic Sisyphus,
Mopping up the mess
I wish I, wish I’d
Kept inside my chest

Still I insist
It’s towards you I’m stumbling
Cos without your absence
I’m surrounded by nothing
Surrounded by nothing

In love with oblivion
To chaos I’m devoted
Prometheus at large
Each day my heart
Is re-exploded

Dreams within dreams
Waves upon the waves
Taking back the earth and
Pulling us away
Dreams within dreams
Waves upon the waves
Taking back the earth and
Pulling us away

Dreams within dreams
Waves upon the waves
