Track Name: Aether
"Aether" by onevoice

The water gets much deeper here
Feel it rise
Into the silent liquid you melt

Open the door and step outside
Your body motionless behind
This world a blue and churning sky

Seeing, we surrender our eyesight
We surrender our hearing
Take us beyond our senses

Out there, in the air that the gods breathe
Will we find out what they mean
All of this mystic chanting

It might seem weird from the outside
If you're not tasting the view
But fear and misunderstanding
Keeps you locked away in you

The trees of glass and rubber walls
Your skin is passing through them all
But don't get lost in conscious dreaming

Take with you from this distant realm
A wider concept of yourself
You're much more than the car you're driving

Seeing, we surrender our eyesight
We surrender our hearing
Take us beyond our senses

Out there, in the air that the gods breathe
Will we find out what they mean
All of this mystic chanting

It might seem weird from the outside
If you're not tasting the view
But fear and misunderstanding
Keeps you locked away in you

Molding the clay of The Universe
We aren't the ones who have made this first
Learn what we can from the sea and sky
We'll see the truth once we close our eyes

Living in two worlds at the same time
It amazes me how wide
We all are on the inside

It might seem weird from the outside
If you're not tasting the view
But fear and misunderstanding
Keeps you locked away in you
Track Name: October Snow
"October Snow" by onevoice

The winter is mocking me and its all I see
Her face down in crimson snow
You took her away from me when she was a child
Her tear stained eyes, her clear blue skies
Everything's covered now in your cold, white lie
Her red hair, her falling leaves
How dare you fall so soon?

October snow won't you let me go
Trapped deep inside that night's blueish glow

Jump on my back, I'll carry you somewhere
All of my life shines through your smile
All of those years make old pictures useless
Barge in my room just like you used to, I miss you
So cold...

The winter is here again with its cold embrace
No reason to leave my bed
The ice is inside of me and it cuts like glass
The pain deep inside my veins
Remembering the pain is easy this time of year
The Christmas lights already glow
How dare you glow so soon?

October snow
Let me go
Trapped deep inside
Blueish glow

Stay up real late, I'll help with your homework
All of my life shines through your smile
All of those years make old pictures useless
Barge in my room just like you used to, I love you
So cold...
Track Name: People Watching
"People Watching" by onevoice

Pour in a capsule
Just how I feel now
In case I start to forget

I watch them walking
With friends and family
I've got a fork and a tray

Slow down my offbeat heart
I swam out way too far

Trying free samples
Does not distract me
And no one tells me to stop

I hear them talking
Outside this plastic
Their words are glued to my back

Slow down my offbeat heart
I swam out way too far
I swam out way too far...
Track Name: Hibernation
"Hibernation" by onevoice

Wait far too long
To get out of bed
Sit on the edge and just stare for a while

Pour on your clothes
Swallow your pills
Rub both your eyes as you run out the door

Give up your voice
Do what you're told
Its all the same, you're not yours anymore

Stagnation I can't wake up
Hibernation in my blood

Wait far too long
To get out of bed
Watching the days as they turn into one

Call up your ex
Hate no one more
They're all the same as they run out the door

Inhale your food
On your fifteen
Come back inside and feel lower than dirt

Stagnation I can't wake up
Hibernation in my blood

Everyday is the same
Treating life like a game
Swallowed whole by my bed
Living life in my head

Just when you think you're on your own
Look closer now, its inside you again...
Track Name: Mind Palace
"Mind Palace" by onevoice

Here in my igloo made of stone on the hillside
I come to rest from time to time
Every night I come here to run from the cityscape
Such a view from the highest tree

Run through waves that rejoice and join me to form a chord
Directly clinging to my soul

You know you hold the pen...

Life can get kind of scary sometimes
Skies grow dark, friends get farther away
All I need is an inner refuge
Call it ignorance, I'll call it bliss

Koko wa anata no basho, eien ni
(this is your place forever)
Mousou no hana ga saite iru yo
(the flowers of delusion are blooming)

You know you hold the pen...

Life can get kind of scary sometimes
Skies grow dark, friends get farther away
All I need is an inner refuge
Call it ignorance, I'll call it bliss

And at night when the sun's awake
I am watching the waves
Wondering just where my life has gone
And why I've run away
Flying low through the valleys wide
In the tall grass I lay
Wishing real life could be as sweet
As it is in this place
Track Name: For Her
"For Her" by onevoice

It was early morning
You were driving me to
School and then you noticed
Glistening tears in my eyes

You pulled into the nearest empty lot
Held my hand as i sat and cried a while
I'm sure you don't at all remember that day
But I do, and always will

Always
You were by me always
You were standing by me always
Rooting for me always
It'll take a couple lifetimes
Just for me to show you
How much all that really saved me
And how much I love you
This is for her
For her...
Track Name: A Seedling
"A Seedling" by onevoice

I'll carry you back home with me
Don't worry, you'll be fine

Your poetry, so surreal I know
But frail are your wings

Molding the clay of The Universe
Bring down to Earth what we so deserve
Grateful are we for the gift You give
Power to create in the world we live

Without our art we are alone...

Your challenge, a shell that I must break
No room for comfort here

A seedling is every small idea
Your caring can make it grow

Molding the clay of The Universe
Bring down to Earth what we so deserve
Grateful are we for the gift You give
Power to create in the world we live

Without our art we are alone...
Track Name: Hush of Lack
"Hush of Lack" by onevoice

Comfortable is my life
Normal, safe and plain
Not a lot happens here
Every day's the same

But every night
I'm alone with my angry mind
Wondering how much worse
This gets over time

Why do we do this to ourselves?
Treat our hearts like unread words in a book on a shelf
Why do we do this to ourselves?

Celebrate the fact that everything you own will turn to dust
It's just a matter of time
Celebrate the fact that everything you know ain't worth that much
We're so much more than our minds
Celebrate the fact that all you need is love, its all we have

Hear the sound before the sound...

I feel You in the waves
I feel You in the grass at night
I feel You on my back
You cannot by what You are
I feel You everyday...

Every night I'm alone with my angry mind
And I can say it does get worse, gets much worse over time
Don't believe that you are all that you may have

Why do we do this to ourselves?
Treat our hearts like unread words in a book on a shelf
Why do we do this to ourselves?

Celebrate the fact that everything you own will turn to dust
It's just a matter of time
Celebrate the fact that everything you know ain't worth that much
We're so much more than our minds
Celebrate the fact that all you need is love, its all we have
Track Name: Any Happier
"Any Happier" by onevoice

They're all gone
Left me with a house so empty
And I couldn't be happier

Or so I'd thought
But the buzz wore off so quickly
Am I really any happier?

No one's left
To turn the heat up, drink my last beer
Now it's all how it should've been

Or so I'd thought
But the loneliness is creeping
Am I really any happier?

I'm so lonely but I'm not changing
I'm so lonely but I can't change
I'm so lonely but I'm not changing
I'm so lonely but I can't change

To be alone
With my wife was all I wanted
Such a shame that she had to go

The coverings
I ripped them off of all the couches
Won't you please come and sit with me?

Nine to five
Coming home was all I wanted
Now the walls turn and scream at me

The photographs
Potential lives that they all wanted
Now they're gone and so are we

I'm so lonely but I'm not changing
I'm so lonely but I can't change
I'm so lonely but I'm not changing
I'm so lonely but I won't change
I'm so lonely but I'm not changing
I'm so lonely but I won't change
I'm so lonely but I'm not changing
I'm so lonely but I can't change
Track Name: Graduation
"Graduation" by onevoice

Keep your degree
I just wanna be
Happy inside
Is it too much to ask
How can we learn
Without anyone around
To teach us all

How to be wiser and how to be kind
How to escape from our minds

The light pears in through the shades now
And silent I am awake
God, have I come any closer
When will I graduate
