Jerry Oliver This is a great listening experience. A live performance from Crave On is a pretty magical thing so it's cool to hear them bring that same quality to album making.

zionariley This whole album is really fucking great. Track 3 has the best chorus of any chorus I've heard all year. I have to listen to it on repeat every few days. Favorite track: Ozzy Osbourne.

Seven lamps lighting up the night The serpent is shedding its skin Fire blazing across the sky Is this where I come in Saturn's rings shining beautifully Spirit speaking through the wind Shimmering stars trapped behind bars Is this where I come in Approaching angel with a burning heart Hearing the voices from within With a chalice at the palace of the fairy queen Is this where I come in Sparkling rain running down the trees And I see your reflection once again Open window in the back of your mind Is this where I come in Circle square triangle in the air Trading places with my twin Now I stand at the door and knock Is this where I come in Candy mountains and honey streams Crystal spirals in a spin If you can hear my voice open the door Is this where I come in

Ouroboros 03:03
Purple sky lit up by a falling star Little Richard on the line wondering where you air Making plans today as a tribute to tomorrow Daffodils and tulips surround you with their aura Ouroboros tattoo on the bank manager's hand Giving you his praise, helping you understand Ouroboros tattoo on the lifeguard's back Saving your life then back to the safety shack Faces passing by in the hustle of a bustling crowd Shadow on the sky wraps you up in its shroud Hunter on the plain running wild with the hounds Baby's got it made getting paid by the pound Ouroboros tattoo on the bank manager's hand Giving you his praise, helping you understand Ouroboros tattoo on the mall Santa's face Granting your wishes and then vanishing without a trace Unraveling the mystery of a hot summer night My knight in shining armor, my soul's delight Half fire, half water, part dark, part light I was kneeling at your altar, now I'm banished from your sight Ouroboros tattoo on the bank manager's hand Giving you his praise, helping you understand Ouroboros tattoo on the jazz man's chest Healing your wounds and leaving you there to rest

Glass in the yellow haze Melting in the sun's rays Ozzy Osbourne walking in a daze Rolling in the mud Wisdom of the blood Bats pour down like raindrops in the flood Black night putting my nerves to the test Like I knew I was the best, like I was better than the rest Wild child putting the first things first Like I knew I was the worst, ready to quench my thirst Zoning out in the sound Vibration all around Ozzy Osbourne hovering over the ground Hearing the song of the bricks Wandering into the sticks Finding hidden rooms inside the mix Black night putting my nerves to the test Like I knew I was the best, like I was better than the rest Wild child putting the first things first Like I knew I was the worst, ready to quench my thirst

If I could see liquid crystal dancing on the wind I would never have to go to sleep again All around the world waiting for the show to begin Just a chance to see that glory again And if my dreams were as sweet as that beautiful sight I would sleep forever in an endless night I would succumb, no I would not put up a fight Just to see that glimmer go drifting by Climb the mountain, chop down the tree Yes I would live in the desert mysteriously Crawl on broken glass eternally Just to have that Christmas all around me Radiant jewel up in the sky Burning tears in my eyes but I don't know why It shines it shimmers yeah what a surprise Just to see that glimmer go drifting by If I could see liquid crystal dancing on the wind I would never have to smell the roses again Make my home in the hyena's den Just a chance to see that glory again And if the day were as sweet as that beautiful sight I would marry the sunbeams and murder the night Change into a creature of the light Just to see that glimmer go drifting by

Wave Party 03:17
We're gonna have a wave party tonight Slip into the ceiling and pour down from the lights Bring out the blues, bring out the greens I wanna get lost in these magazines We're gonna go to the hidden city today Storming through the forest til we lose our way Bring out the thorns, bring out the stones Watch me tremble as I approach the throne Talk with the shadows, talk with the dead You'll never guess what the rose bush said Talk with the wires, talk with the walls Meeting with the horses in their stalls We're gonna see the exorcist tonight Cast out all the demons and feel alright Bring out the smoke, bring out the wheel I wanna get lost in a classic feeling We're gonna meet the sorcerer today Pulling out the hours from the swamp of decay Bring out the fog, bring out the snake Living in exile by the lake Talk with the shadows, talk with the dead You'll never guess what the rose bush said Talk with the wires, talk with the walls Meeting with the horses in their stalls

How can I be real I don't wanna fake How can I be real I'm ready to break Tears on my face Balloons in space How can I face The real with you How can I be real I don't wanna fade How can I be real If I'm afraid Everything in its place Making a case How can I taste The real with you I saw you through a window I saw you through a shelf Chandelier on the balcony But where are you How can I be real between the lines How can I be real going out of my mind Going half blind Champagne and wine How can I find The real with you I saw you through a window I saw you through a shelf Chandelier on the balcony But where are you How can I be real I don't wanna fake How can I be real I'm ready to break Tears on my face Balloons in space How can I face The real with you

Could you give me some time? You know that haste makes waste Is It considered a crime to lose the race without grace I forgot all my lines In this worldwide play It ain't funny no more I've been losing face Will you tell my friend Joe I saw her daughter by the water Tide's up time to go She's been out looking for her father And the kid wants to know If she should even bother She's been talking to the herons and the otters Rust under the hood Baby knock on wood Nerve damage in the neighborhood And the good thing grows wild For miles and miles and miles Should I ride on this wave Or just wait another year Sat on this board all day But the action ain't clear I think I'm drifting away Or maybe I was never here I've been hearing the song Mermaids must be near Rust under the hood Baby knock on wood Nerve damage in the neighborhood And the good thing grows wild For miles and miles and miles

I want you to paint graffiti On every surface in the cities of my soul Engrave your name in the tomb On the walls of every room in my soul When or where can broken dreams Climb the stairs to what they mean Will they bear their teeth any more Nowhere to swim on that shore I want you to take me under The waves in the thunder of your soul Weave your pattern thread and loom On the craters of the moon in your soul When or where can broken dreams Climb the stairs to what they mean Will they bear their teeth any more Nowhere to swim on that shore

Easier 04:13
Easier done than said To bury yourself right up to your head To walk among the living dead To go without your daily bread Easier said than done To try and have a little fun To stay up late and walk in the sun To just hang loose and love someone To really let go and love someone And she said all souls ride the wheel Whether or not you believe it's real I said man you must be crazy All this corn's got me talking real hazy She said that we are just butterflies With poisonous spikes driven into our eyes Don't believe their lies And that's easier done than said To bury yourself right up to your head To walk among the living dead To go without your daily bread

Crooked Line 02:36
The art of the crooked line Zig zag down backroads Just trying to get by So very fine The art of the butterfly Chrysalis in motion Not ready to die Fireworks in the sky Lifetimes of jewelry Schoolyard tomfoolery Missed opportunities Just hangin around Surely nothin new to me Certainly moves through me The art of the lullaby Restless with daydreams Well how do you sleep at night Flooded with light The art of the grand prize Cashing in on the sweepstakes Then getting a black eye Don't even have to try Lifetimes of jewelry Schoolyard tomfoolery Missed opportunities Just hangin around Surely nothin new to me Certainly moves through me The art of the white lie How could I just stand there while you break down and cry When we said goodbye The art of the dotted line Sign here sign there Get you set up in no time Then we slice the limes

30 Days 03:29
Who am I If not a speck of dust In the eyes Of the universe Who am I If not a ball of flame Wrapped inside The arms of love 30 days from now we become unstoppable 30 days from now the lines are untraceable In 30 days the light shines down on what's possible Who am I If not a jellyfish Adrift In the cosmic ocean Who am I If not a killer whale In the stars Above Dutch tulip fields 30 days from now we complete the unreachable 30 days from now our size is unspeakable In 30 days we cheer beyond what's reasonable

Dark Corners 03:34
Pyramid, spiral, jupiter, mars Crack in the pavement Face in the stars After miles and miles Of beautiful real estate Yearning to return to room 88 Juniper, violet, sparrow and crow Lake of the serpent Where the waterfall flows After years and years Of infinite yesterdays Got it so that you don't have to stay In dark corners Finding a way into the fantasy Dark corners It's a dream it's a vision it's reality Dark corners Delicate, gentle, purple and green Sparks fly high From the new machine After hours and hours Of pages and pictures Still go crazy at the Taste of that mixture Unicorn, mermaid, lion and lamb Rainbow burst from the palm of the hand After decades and decades of the balance disturbed It's clear in here so that You can emerge From dark corners Finding a way into the fantasy Dark corners It's a dream it's a vision it's reality Dark corners Clawing your way into the fantasy Dark corners It's a dream it's a vision it's destiny Dark corners
