    Thank you for making this possible and thank you for joining my conversation! I offer this album super cheap because it's sometimes hard to justify spending on music but $5 is pretty fair for 18 tracks so no excuses! :p

Track Name: Wanderlust
Took a trip to clear my mind,
Didn't know where to go
All I needed was far away from home.
Took a trip to see the lights
But found myself all alone,
Felt myself turning in to stone...

Cho:
But in Tallahassee....
I'll find myself again...
Just one more move...

Left the wild to join the crowd
Didn't think I'd miss the breeze
You can't see the forest for the trees.
In the concrete,
Felt so hard
Felt like jagged broken shards.
Wherever you go well there the hell you are...

Cho
Track Name: Cocorico
Do you know how roosters talk in French?
Silly, I know.
Strange that they would sound different
In "Cocorico".

Cho: Cocorico...

Early at dawn when stars begin to yawn,
It's beckoned at once.
And into the day, while hens yet lay
He's singing his song all morning long.
Track Name: Amorous
I'm happy nuzzled into your chest,
I'm happy when you tug at the zip of my dress
I'm happy for kinetics of flesh upon flesh
Yeah, yeah, yes.

I'm happy at the feel of your tongue
I'm happy in the knowledge that you are my someone
I'm happy when we start, I'm happy when we are done
Can't fight this.

Cause you have the keys to my heart and my soul
But we are corporeal
Longing to feel
Ahhh.... honey....aaaahhh..

Cho: Ready? Set
Go, go, go, uh-huh, uh-huh
What's that?
Go, go, go, uh-huh, uh-huh
Oh! Oh... it's good for you, it's good for us...
Amorous...

I'm happy as I follow your lead
I'm happy as you peel away your shirt and your jeans
I'm happy as we rock, as we roll and then sleep
Oh, my, yes.

I'm happy in the warmth of your arms
I'm happy that you never back away too far
I'm happy at how excited you are
How excited you are

Cause you have the keys to my heart and my soul
But we are corporeal,
Longing to feel

Cho
Track Name: Try
(Gimme a-ha....
Gimme a-ha....)

Give me the fortitude
Give me the strength
Give me the peace of mind
Give me a hand
Gimme a.... (Try, try, try, tryyy)

I might surprise you again
I do not want to stay friends
This could be real,
This could be right
I'm closing my eyes...

I'm taking my chances on you
I don't do romances, it's true
But this time I think that I'll
Give it a try

Cho: I'll give it a
Try, try, try, tryyy... (Gimme a-ha)
Try, try, try, tryyy... (Gimme a-ha)
Try, try, try, tryyy... (Gimme a-ha)
Try, try, try, tryyy... (Gimme a-ha)

Give me simplicity
Give me your heart
If we walk complicitly
It may not fall apart...

I might surprise you again
I do not want to stay friends
This could be real,
This could be right
I'm closing my eyes...

I'm taking my chances on you
I don't do romances, it's true
But this time I think that I'll
Give it a try

Cho: I'll give it a
Try, try, try, tryyy... (Gimme a-ha)
Try, try, try, tryyy... (Gimme a-ha)
Try, try, try, tryyy... (Gimme a-ha)
Try, try, try, tryyy... (Gimme a-ha)
Track Name: Yes
Do I love you? (Yes)
Do I want you? (Yes)
Can I handle it?
Nothing but to see!

My heart is beating out a metronome of hope and love
To you, to you
For you, for you
My mouth is singing out the words I wish I could say
To you, to you
For you, for you

And how we hold these feelings close
This jar is far too small, it's far too small
And how we hold back the hands of time
Wishing but not doing, not doing, hmm...

Cho

Break;
Do I, do I?
Do I, do I?
Do I, do I?
Do I, do I?

Cho

Break
Track Name: Forget
Slow hands,
Cold feet,
Tough face
Is what you said to me

Don't like that talk
Don't walk that way to me
Don't watch my face
Cause I don't wanna say what I've been thinking

You got your own way
But I'm not the principle that you should know

You are not ready for the ride.

Caught up
Entranced
Like the palms in the sky we dance

You didn't have much to say
You didn't know my name
But I think you're playing a game with me.

You got your own way
But I'm not the principle that you should know

You are not ready for the ride
(If you ask me I might tell you you're not ready yet.
If you can't commit then let's just say goodbye and forget.)
Track Name: Blossoms Bloom
Paper thin,
Like a flower petal I'm soaked in
Raindrops beating me a heart,
Beating strange
Beating rage.

An eye for that
Which absorbs and gives me nothing back
But change is natural enough
Growing tough
Floating on...

Cho:
But yeah, when're you coming back?
Yeah... what'd'you think of that?

I tied myself
To another for a source of health
But here I am a branch apart
Stretching up
Stretching smart.
And now I see
All the pieces of you in me
But I think it's time to leave
Time to breathe
Blossoms bloom.
Track Name: Clocks
One step on the water for a second.
Sixty steps and I'm a time machine.
But the controls are stuck on forward
While the engines long to go back.

Two steps on the water for a minute.
Sixty and I'm a time machine.
But my ears look round
And my eyes see sound.

Sixty steps on water for an hour
Twenty three more and I'm a time machine
But the shell breaks down
And no help's come round...

364 steps into the water
One more and I'm a time machine
But the kids don't come round
And I'm too close to the ground.

Well will you bury?
Or will you raise a pyre?
Cause I've always been in water
And now I see dry land...

But that's what clocks do... they tick until they don't.
Track Name: Parallax
Slowly timber the will to the axe of the time parallax.
I can see heavens descending upon this troubled breath,
It's a sudden death until the moment of sight.
Recognition and shifting positions
All of your heartfelt words get swept into its path of least resistance.

In this tornado of feeling I'm caught, I'm sold, I'm bought.

I bought into the temper...
I bought into the will...
I bought in shifting parallaxis....

In this tornado of feeling
I'm caught, I'm sold, I'm bought...
Track Name: Nostalgia (Dead Weight)
You... you stood in line
Just like a child
Like a good child
But I... I broke through
I broke the rules
To get to you

But now that you see me here
Well I bet that you wonder how I broke through?
But I will stay with you
I will find a way
I will find a way.

Just don't look back
Cause I'll turn to salt
Is that what you want?
Is that what you want?

Cho: Don't look back!
Track Name: Wave
Forest dancer,
Are you like me?
Waving at trees?

Forest dancer,
Living carefree
Are you like me?
Like me?
As you...

Cho:
Wave to go, hmmm...
Wave to go, ooooo, I,
Wave to go, hmm...
Wave... your hands.....

Hands, hands, hands, hands....

Break: [Spoken]
I was walking through the woods,
Dark night,
Flashlight
Burning bright into the path.
As I walked (Now)
I had my earphones on
And I was listening to this song and it was just...
Transporting me somewhere else.
So I danced.
In the dark.
By myself.
It was pretty cool.

(Now)
Track Name: Unreal/Moments
UNREAL:
There's something unreal about ya
And there's something unknown
There's something unreal about ya
I guess I'll never know...

Hey, take me away
I will follow you anywhere you want to go...
I think it's time for this trip to come to a close, don't you know.

MOMENTS:
Runny sunlight drips into my lungs,
Choke the laughter from my smokey breath
And as the sunlight trips onto my tongue
I speak the words that beat out of my chest

Are you.... into this? Feeling this?
(I really really want to know)

Ride on....

I express this open and intimate, intimate...
I reflect this moment and watch it sink, watch it sink...

Ride on...
Track Name: Ancestors (Carbon Copy Trip)
Wake.
Speak.
Grow...
All for you.

Take heed,
Know what you do.

So young...
And yet you're older
So young...
I wouldn't know her
So young...
And so misguided
But also wiser than me.

I picture your face but leaves fade...

Tough and scratching at rooted stars
A tree bark
By the river Styx that I tap my ritual time to
Blue skies and thunder cries,
Ancestors hear me now...

Transfix me like the weather.

Tripping up and down on the run
From where we came from
Silly children can't you see
That we were born to be
More than this?
Born to be transfixed.

Transfix me like the weather.
Track Name: Truth & Permanence (Bonus Track)
Unlike the child who sleeps,
You can't spend time counting sheep...
And unlike the blurry fall
Of age and learning into nought....
You've got the world around
Tell me what you've written down?
A sea of idle thought
Never seeking what you've sought

Pre-Chorus:
Formula's & sketches
Of all you see
Pretend
To show reality

Cho:
For the word "define"
Requires the finite
With a separation from the rest
And experience
Is the consequence
Of a universe that separates itself.

Verse 2:
Under the apple tree
You've got knowledge for a fee.
Your lifespan: short, defined;
You can't spend it killing time.
'Cause you've got the world around
Tell me, are your systems down?
Your brain, your eyes, your hands -
Tell me what happens to them?

Pre-Chorus:
Algebra & anthems
Of all of history
Pretend
To show reality

Cho:
As phenomena
Make a life abrupt & unchained,
I predict you see
Unfurling debris of Truth & Permanence.
