Track Name: Ozone
ozone park fills the lungs smothering this strangled love
grass is gone now there's astroturf its all right
you knew swing sets go round and round
under the moon the force of gravity is that strong
go to the mall
forget everything
at all
Track Name: Helen and the Sea
there is a place far past the bay where sea gulls they cry their love songs in vain
i have wanted to fly like them and i have wanted to die like them
when is this going to end
the flickering flame holds our gazes
back to the wall vacuous all
you are
you are the void and i am the call there is a sound 1,000 miles long and it is loud

& i know its hard to keep track of the time slips like love into a sea and your lies they sting like stories weave and weave
helen and the sea
Track Name: Colds
there is this lie called life on earth
there is no love like love on earth the colds
that prey and die in her
grass is green its in the earth
voices have been guiding me they
never know my name you see
this is not a love song
don't cause any fuss
