Track Name: Magenta
Oh, careless curses leave my mouth
Black ether clouding up my face
My tongue may move for misery
But it sleeps for deep space

Pastel pinks, enriched, enhanced with gold
Soft and silent yellows
Indigo, cyan and algae green
Magenta, almost unseen
You flicker, radiate and scream
In tightly curled particles of infinity

My mind does somersaults, I moan
When morning pries open my eyes
Sometimes I only see one hue
But then you open bands of light

Pastel pinks, enriched, enhanced with gold
Soft and silent yellows
Indigo, cyan and algae green
Magenta, almost unseen
You flicker, radiate and scream
In tightly curled particles of infinity

Sigh and savor sweetly as you
Stumble down to meet me in the
Silence underneath the water
Far below the moonbeams we'll
Encase each other's body and
Descend into the darkness where we'll
Learn to breathe the water and we'll
Learn to love the seaweed
Track Name: Tourmaline
Pretty little baby is counting my swings at the salt mines
Checking all the pieces, they sparkle, I wish they were mine
There's a feeling on my tongue from the dust that clouds up the dark
I'm gonna get us out, I'll make a torch from a spark

Pretty little baby is learning to swing at the salt mines
Taking my direction, who knows what we could find
A diamond or a ruby, pressed up from deep inside the earth
I've seen some people leaving with jewels and gems in their eyes

Pretty little baby with the wobbly tooth wants to go home
A little bit longer, then I promise you'll be with your mom
She's slaving in the kitchen, making sure that we're fed
It's back to the mines in the morning, we should get to bed

It's okay, baby
Tourmaline's prettier than emerald anyway
Track Name: Infrared and Ultraviolet
Love come softly
Finding solace in a moonbeam
Come like water through the oxygen
To rearrange the particles inside
For the sake of what we share
Come in common swollen, bare
Underneath the blinding moon
Closely carried heart balloon

Strings and things, most wonderful of things
Never soiled my memory
A sigh of relief resounds in motif
To which you said to me,
"Amuse me"
Confused but assured, it was endearing
Such constant charm
Has never been soothing, oh
The slightest gaze on distant mornings

Right through
The very source of inspiration
Indigo and blue
Our little patterned love creation

Never angry, just absurd
Moving backwards through your words
Filed down and fossilized
Apprehension in your eyes

Strings and things, most wonderful of things
Never soiled my memory
A sigh of relief resounds in motif
To which you said to me,
"Amuse me"
Confused but assured, it was endearing
Such constant charm
Has never been soothing, oh
The slightest gaze on distant mornings

Keep it up, I know I'm dreaming
A hole filled with nostalgic feelings
Oh, my mind is turning
In circles through madness so alluring
Infrared and ultraviolet
Images coming in on autopilot
Faces speaking in a vacuum
Mouths moving but the scene is silent
