Track Name: Mariana Trench
Sound the alarm
Something is rising
From the depths of the unknown
The Mariana Trench
Thirty-six thousand feet below

Sound the alarm
Something is rising
It is ancient and unknown
From the depths of The Mariana Trench
Thirty-six thousand feet below

It's coming for your mind

First you see it rising like a plume of smoke
Then you hear it
Don't you fear
It's well beyond your control

It's coming for your mind
Track Name: Something Strange
There's Something Strange about her love
That keeps me coming home
Might be her grace as she moves on the ground
Or the way that I feel in my bones

The whirlwinds are blowing
Within me it's growing
It's almost impossible
I can barely contain
But there's Something Strange about her love
That keeps me from holding it down

There's Something Strange about her song
And every melody she speaks
I've seen the way that she's tall and she's strong
And sometimes she's beautifully weak

The whirlwinds are blowing
Within me it's growing
It's almost impossible
I can barely explain
But there's Something Strange about her love
That keeps me from finding the words

No longer lonesome
I am leaves on the breeze
She saw through the darkness
And took hold of my disease
But I wasn't always like this, no
I wasn't always so free
That's why her sweetness tastes so damn good to me

There's Something Strange
It runs through the veins
Of the years that we've shared in our lives
She sets me free and I always return
That's the way that our souls have survived

The whirlwinds are blowing
Within me it's knowing
It's oh-so impossible
To deny this refrain
But there's Something Strange about her love
That keeps me coming home
Track Name: Seattle
I want to travel
I want to watch the wonders of the world be unraveled
I'm searching for my sign
I'm not wasting any time
That's why I'm going to Seattle

And when I see you
God knows the lonely nights that I've been longing to meet you
Take my memories from the past
And surrender to their battles
Pack up I'm going to Seattle

That'll be the day I swear
Let go and throw my hands straight up into the air
Will you catch me if I fall in love this time?

My heart is hoping
To speak the secret word and find the door that it opens
For so long I've run my mouth
But my words are running out
I am a constant growing shadow

Illumination
Elusive! Will it come if I accept invitation?
Do I even have a choice
It's the first I've heard your voice
And I've been waiting for so long

That'll be the day I swear
Let go and throw my hands straight up into the air
Will you catch me if I fall in love this time?
That'll be the day...
Track Name: Voice That Only Sings
There is a light inside the sky
When you try to look it burns behind your eyes
I know these open-ended queries with no answers form our boundaries
They make me want to cry

The time we hold is often brief
Bound down to the ground by the gravity of grief
I know that every one of us aches from a place deep inside
We wait for our release

Do you wish that you were lighter than the air
Oil on the water, or ashes like you were never there?
I know you long to trade your arms for wings
And leave behind your words for a Voice That Only Sings

Are you afraid to be a child again,
Yet unbroken by the dangers of the wilderness?
I know it's love that tore you down
Oh, how you used to dance
But now you're pieces on the ground

Do you wish that you were lighter than the air
Oil on the water, or ashes like you were never there?
I know you long to trade your arms for wings
And leave behind your words for a Voice That Only Sings

Please I beg you not to let me go
We are all tied together by each and every hand we hold
I know the day will come when we all return to our home in the sun
But until then we remain forever young

Do you wish that you were lighter than the air
Oil on the water, or ashes like you were never there?
I know you long to trade your arms for wings
And leave behind your words for a Voice That Only Sings

Leave behind your words for a Voice That Only Sings
Track Name: Acid Love
Could I please stay with you?
Thoughts of a lifetime alone
Drove me all this way
Just to say hello

I watched your world go by
Wishing you well for a while
Dangling your pearls
Just before my eyes

Take me inside
I swear I'm man enough
Take me alive
To drown in Acid Love
Take of what I'm made of

Let's break our backs in two
Both of our bones be anew
Tangled in a twirl
Crashing to the ground

Death be the price, I'd pay
For love is all I can take
Heavy in the sky
We begin to rise

Take me inside
I swear I'm man enough
Take me alive
To drown in Acid Love
Take of what I'm made of
