Track Name: Jhumpa Lahiri
And you were scared of ghosts
Spirits in the glass by your bed
Your mother had told you that story
You heard growing up in El Salvador

When there's an earthquake
Our future's just a black hole this room
When there's an earthquake
A Jhumpa Lahiri novel on my shelf

And we went to see obscure art
I thought that I would flee with you to Spain
Because Love is a fossil that I found
Before it was a fish that had drowned

When there's an earthquake
Your mouth on the lips of someone else
When there's an earthquake
Your airplane ride to Spain will be alone

(And you'll be the spirit by my bed)

I'll be the spirit by your bed
Track Name: Sailboat
What if an asteroid hit?
What if an asteroid hit?
Then I’ll play alone in the black
Then I’ll play alone in the black

You know that I can’t feel like light drowned in space
You know that I can’t see through the walls of consciousness
Don’t believe in anything cuz' you’re just the context of time
And I’ll believe in everything but I’ll just be a sailboat in the sea

What if an asteroid hit?
What if an asteroid hit?
Then I’ll play alone in the black
Then I’ll play alone in the black
Track Name: Perception
Perception is a game that we play
So I’ll dress up like a grizzly bear
And there’s a tornado in my head
As the leaves begin to paint themselves again

Don’t be fooled, We’re all animals

And I saw the technicolor lights
Through the grey sands on this beach
But I’m just a man in my head
Thinking about time when I’m gone

Don’t be fooled, We’re all animals

And I saw the twilight through cognitive distortion
And I saw my ego through an iceberg off the coast

Don’t be fooled, We’re all animals
Track Name: Northern Lake
You said, “Stay with me, but don’t get lost in your head.”

And the conscious self is a thief
And the visceral mind you believe

But I’ll wait

Why does it mask itself?
I lost the feeling again
At a northern lake, I knew my love had weathered down

You said, “Stay with me, but don’t get lost in your head.”

Why does it mask itself?
I lost the feeling again
At a northern lake, I knew my love had weathered down

I can hear the cathartic thoughts again
Track Name: Time Continuum
And I am lost in the time continuum
Watching the sea erode my old self
And I saw myself become a werewolf
With a glass of poison in my hand

The woods are deeper now
The woods are darker now

And I walked on a dark steel bridge
With water rapids drowning out the train
In the void of night in a cabin in my head
I played chess with my old myself

The woods are deeper now
The woods are darker now

And the past is just a beast in a cave
When love has become its own slave
And when did I grow old an lose her
I am lost in the moon's neon blur
I am lost in the moon's neon blur
