Track Name: Security
No place is safe
Track Name: The Great Firewall
Hands over the water
Ears against the walls
Eyes under my pillow always
Living in your shadow
Swept up in your wake
Trembling just to taste freedom

Head held under water
Strangers passing down the hall
Eyes peering through windows always
You kept the barbarous hordes out
But are we safe from ourselves?
And you call this freedom
Track Name: YVR2PVG
Up above the clouds
Where even he birds are dreaming
The tapestry of sky is all unweaving

Goodbye home
I'm going far away
Goodbye home
Don't be sad today

Waiting at the gates
For a stranger's greeting
Looking for a face
of the one I'm meeting
Track Name: Operating Thetan
I wonder if you can hear me.
Even when I'm not around?
Are you gonna save me?
Or are you just as broken as me?

Can you feel it?
Can you feel it coming back again?

We've been waiting for 2,000 years
How much longer can we last?
You've got powers, baby.
But you keep me on my knees.

Can you feel it?
Can you feel it coming back again?
Track Name: KTV Blues
Smoke trails from you lips
False splendour at our fingertips
Chains, chains, gains in chains...
(and it's safer like this)
Do you want power like I want you?
Do you need this like I do?
Track Name: Sericulture
Find a way back to the beginning
But take the long way home
Can you see the forest amidst the trees
We were so much younger then
Never younger than in that glow
I'll be waiting for you
In a grove of mulberries
We were so much younger then
Never younger than in that glow
Someday we'll be young again
So never, forever let me go
Track Name: Trust
Been living from a bag for too long now
Sleeping with the window half closed
somewhere outside
In the haze music plays
From a speaker not intended for me

Trust

Lost in the streets after sundown
Let the lotus climb over me
Is there a price to pay for such a song?
And will I know it when the melody plays?

Trust

Sitting beneath the lotus trees
Waiting for the words to come to me
It's time to go home
To the ones you are beholden to

Trust
When you need somebody
You can count on me
True blue
Trust
When I need somebody
can I count on you?
Stand by me
Trust
