Track Name: Who I Am
What.

If I started to feel?
Does that mean that I’m real?
If you thought that you think,
Does that mean anything?

It started with a dream that I had,
I awoke into a foreign bed
It was there that I found this man
That you hear
But this will be the last time
(You live ‘til you die)
I swear,
(you live ‘til you die)
I’ll be going round in circles again
(you live just to die)
If you wanna be so close then,
(you live just to die)
To the end
Wake up.

As I live I will die,
So what gives?
I asked why.
So it seems,
Oh God,
It’s time I move on.
Track Name: Fear! and it's Vanity!
Then I stood tall and free
The whole world just looked at me
Suddenly I felt naked again
Thinking how did this all begin?

Oh, you don’t have to believe in anything
You know?
Man, you could just let this one go
Overcome your fear and vanity.

If I was dying what would you say to me?
You know I’m dying so won’t you say something?

Then I stood tall and free
The whole world now beneath me
Suddenly I felt naked again
Thinking how did this all begin?

Oh, you don’t have to believe in anything
You know?
Man, you could just let this one go
Overcome your fear and vanity.

If I was dying what you say to me?

Then I couldn’t quite see
I soon felt very weak
My body started to speak for me
And I met release
In my bed
Then my legs and my head
Oh but it wasn’t the end
I was surrounded by mourning friends
And my family then
And each asked again
For more time I couldn’t spend.
Track Name: Head of Health I
There will come a day
when I can’t explain
things to you no more
cause I’ll be gone
right out the door
so long for now
you will know my name
as it drips from my brow
like the sweat in my eyes as I perspire
in this damn bed,
wish my head would work the same way
so I could tell how I feel

but there will come a day when I am well again
and we will still be friends all until the end,
which you don’t think comes
soon as It may
you will expect things differently if I do too,
we will be strong in the face of things we take apart
and I will grow old with you
-------------------------------------------------------------
There will come a time
when I am on your mind,
but I will be gone,
far from this plain we’re on,
and Im sorry to tell you that I probably wont be coming back.
It’s a one ticket trip all across the world,
farther than you’d think it ever go on,
sorry that I’m not here to stay.

When I’ve gone away, my soul is not in place,
Where you thought you’d be til you died too,
we will grow old in our house,
I will never leave with you at my side,
I feel relief
from all these things,
surely you can sing to me.
I just want to know you one last time.










I don’t have you anymore; I feel badly
I just want your hand to hold in mine
Suffering alone, not a challenge just a home
and it is lonely
I’m lonely again.

So say goodbye Don’t say goodbye,
So say goodbye Don’t say Goodbye
So say goodbye Don’t say goodbye again,
Don’t say goodbye again.










------------------------------------------------------------
Now that I’ve grown old,
and my bones must go,
Im out the door,
everyone you knew is on the floor,
just waiting for the buzz to stop it’s endless beating.
I just want to go,
Im tired of this rope,
this skin that keeps me in,
I just wish I could swim in the water once more,
the life giving stuff that I adore

I don’t want to say goodbye though.
I don’t want to say goodbye though.
I don’t want to say goodbye though,
to everyone I love.
I just can’t say goodbye though,
I just can’t say goodbye though
to everyone I love

Im sorry, I have to go.
Track Name: The Great Sink
Oh it’s astounding
All my surroundings
Now
Blend into one
And I become
Undone.

Something’s wrong with my skin
Where’s it going?
Sometimes it’s not worth knowing
Sometimes it’s not worth knowing.

Do you find that you feel tired?
Would you like to take a break from this?
Do your eyes hurt?
Can you smile?
Will you lie down and fade away?
Will you fade away?
(Don’t) (So)
RUN.
Track Name: Say Words
We see that you have arrived safely
Thank you for coming home
We see that you could use a little debriefing
Well, let us know!

So if you’re tryna let go
Let go.
You don’t want to hold on?
Cast off.

Just take your time with it
We can tell a little from a lot
So don’t worry no more.

(crowd talking)

Oh ain’t it funny how we talk?
Move our mouths to make it not
Feel
So lonely
I swear,
By the time you hear my voice
I will just be noise to you
Then soon I’ll be gone

Oh no you can’t speak here.
So don’t say your words at me
Oh no you can’t speak; hear,
So don’t you say your words at me.
Track Name: How Sweet, to Breathe the Air
Kanis Dynastes
As it started to feel

Kanis Dynastes
He became to us real

Kanis Dynastes
For the young from the Old

Kanis Dynastes
As the story was told

Kanis Dynastes
Birthed to his people

Kanis Dynastes
In fire and blood

Kanis Dynastes
In the air and the mud

Kanis Dynastes
He stands as he should

Kanis Dynastes
The last of his kind

Kanis Dynastes
A very rare find

Kanis Dynastes
The beast with a mind

Kanis Dynastes
Oh such a very rare find

Kanis Dynastes

Alive again
Alive again
Alive again
Alive again
Alive again
Alive again
Alive again
Alive again
Alive again
Track Name: Econom
As It was
It is now
The same as The Beginning
Track Name: Kynokephalos, Live!
Spawn of God,
Manifest,
Here to us
Here in Flesh
Spoken Thought
Marvelous
Majesty
Excellence
Wont You tell us here why we are?
Wont You tell me here why we are?

Good times He brings
To us He sings His songs
In all His glory

It’s time now,
come gather round
And see
The Dog become the King
a dog becomes a king

Im Not Real, So Cannot Say
Fate Has Made Us fools Today
Fragile Face, Eternal Grace
We All Must Die
Or Endlessly Wait
So I’ll Go.

I’ll Go Away And Never Come Back
(Oh no You Can’t leave HERE)

Tell yourself now
That you know that you want
Tell yourself now
What you know that you want
Tell yourself now
That you know what you want.

I want to be nothing
I want to be empty.
Track Name: im so tired
Helpless Gods wish
To remiss amnesia’s kiss
To quench this
Clenched fist
My body is a mess
And a miss.

Sleep tower
Of old power
Wrapped in plastic
Manufactured Bliss
To wake up
Breath and Piss
Do I taste life?
Or my own shit?

Im so tired of it

Free Soul Only Bound to Beauty
Tall Walker; Fine Breathe.
Sweet Mess of Life.
Track Name: Head of Health II
There will come a time
And there will be a place
When I don’t know your name
And you don’t know my face
But we will meet again
I promise you this
My friend

You will have those days
When you won’t hear my voice
You will miss these signs
Caught up in the noise
Sent to make you feel
A little less sad
For now

So say goodbye,
Just say goodbye,
Don’t say goodbye,
Just say goodbye,
Don’t say goodbye,
So say goodbye,
Just say goodbye,
To me.

This life remains a spell,
Resounding apathy.
My disembodied head
Wants nothing from me.
Only to be dead
Lusting after sweet release.

My physical self,
Will no longer be,
But you can always trust,
In the spirit of me
I will love you then
As sure as I do
Right now

I will be the leaves,
Drifting in still wind
I will be the sun
The warmth to breach your skin
You will feel me there
I only hope to share
Again.

If I started to feel,
Does that mean
I’m real?

If I started to think,
I know it means
Nothing

If my body was weak
Will it
Release?
If my time is now done
What then
Will cease?

So say goodbye
Just say goodbye
So say goodbye
Just say goodbye now
So say goodbye
Just say goodbye
Please say goodbye
To me.
