1. Amalia's Theme (7:32)
Delphi it drew us
Over the touchscreen
Delphi it threw us
Up like a stone
In sheep's clothing
The gods that roil
Inside of us
As she whistles her sweet
Out by the poolside
Ravings of suicide
As Athens is burning
Plots and visions
Empty amber bottle
The sky is blue today
Gone tomorrow
Castalian spring
Watching clouds
Amalia nods
Shield shroud
Of moonbeams sacramental
Poolside cigarette smoke
That gyres up like prophecies
Glyph in dragging blood
Amalia swayin' through the
Hotel corridors
Shuffling through the
Thousand years
Oracular and wandering
2. All the Pain in All the Wide World (10:08)
Dim light in the bar
Makes one look younger
Neon lies

We sit we drink we pretend
We're something that we're not

Jumble human bones with
Water running over them
Trickle under grate outside
Almost sounding lovely

All the pain in
All the wide world
Couldn't fill even a fraction
Of the South Pole-Aitken basin
But it all fits in shadow pocket
Like a knife before it
Sticks in neck

Potential under icy moon
Scream then silence in the gloom
Scream then silence splattered room
That was then, this was soon
But you're too busy talking
And I wasn't even listening
Hand in shadow pocket
Pulse is quickening
3. Magnetism (7:29)
Steal through passageways
Like water through fountain pipes
The eyes of many roll from their holes
Out to the causeway
Leering along the crooked sidewalks
At all there is to see

Follow secret back streets
Flow ljust like water through a pipeline
Avoid the avenues teeming
Sun goes down behind landscape seeming
Alien in its nightmare evening

Step lightly over whores reaching
Up through cracks in the concrete
Grinning death masks of beauty living
Hands like scalpels reaching out
Desire killed the curious

Incision neat and clean
Magnetism spilling onto street
Less the distance between
Unfathomable points
Attraction in repulsion
Who ever wanted to live forever?
4. Rings of Earth (8:40)
Satellites with empty eyes
Stalk along
The starry countryside
Titanium ghost
Tombstone orbit creeping
Thousands of miles above
The multitude of dead

Crown and constellation
Hang antenna vultures
Tower over the thermosphere
Like omens dead
When earth that fed
Left its relics in a sky
Unobstructed view

Ring of eyes watch without
Shapes and shadows that do not see
Lens reflect trajectory
Blue circle turns and turns
Awake in the day
Asleep in the night
Awake in the day
Asleep in a grave
All sleep on blue grave
All sleep

Rings of Saturn spin away
All these æons spinning
Rings of Earth are grinning
Satellites in array
Spinning as the days unfold
Watching as the nights untold
Bear witness to another light
The ring of satellites
Glinting over no one but the
Skeletons of endeavor
5. Brittle Urchin (4:32)
Darkness in the cradle of my heart will never wane
Sandstone boy in wind and rain worn down featureless
A dented page of paper from a drawing diary
Wrapped in cracks like rivers, sugar ground to dust
A brittle urchin desiccated by the ocean air
Like a tower of ash upon a cemetery hill
I could never last, I could never last, I could never last.
