1.
She dreamed Of an army of fat synths Tangled in her hair She could still feel them Very clearly Once she was awake She caught Every single fat synth And put them in a jar It started to fog up The fat synths struggled But they all slowly died
2.
Let’s pretend That nothing changes but the weather That the passage of time Doesn’t matter at all Let’s pretend That some words are still important That the passage of time Doesn’t matter at all Please don’t tell me That we have changed for good
3.
It’s all in the film That walk on the beach All those missed opportunities And a telephone that never rings It’s all in the film That bad acid trip Fluorescent lighting Made everyone look ill A question hovered on your lips It’s all in the film It’s all in the film A Xerox machine The mice in the kitchen, The flavors you dreamt The past and the present He spoiled everything Fluorescent lighting Made everyone look ill We’ve got to get out of here It’s all in the film

“I could fall in love with you” She said while stepping onto her train home But my memory may also be a wish She picked up the accent fast Which caused a certain good impression I closed my eyes and imagined our first kiss But my memory may also be a wish I snuck into her bedroom once And stole one of the books she’d brought there The Dennis Wheatley library of the occult She acted like she knew what I did While we walked with my little cousins And then I thought she might be a real witch But my memory may also be a wish
5.
In an ice skating accident My twin brother lost his arm Fighter aircrafts were flying over The lake where he almost drown I was in West Germany at a lecture Discussing gothic fiction And the end of the world Flights were cancelled for a few days I stayed in a hotel in Bonn How come he didn’t notice That the ice was breaking? His left arm was never found I was in West Germany at a lecture Discussing gothic fiction And the end of the world
6.
Capture the atom bomb on film Feel the warmth of the sun Pick a color that suits you Don’t stop until we reach the coast Drive us through that mountain This is a ghost of a life Youthful vainglory is so silly Don’t stop until we reach the coast See how hard my heart is beating For no reason at all Your hair caught in the wind Don’t stop until we reach the coast
7.
A picture of a boat trapped in the ice Covers half the meeting room’s main wall Rogério Duprat looks out the window and sees That an asteroid has hit City Hall 1620 super Computers Over the São Paulo’s skies He can’t help but fall asleep In front of the bust of a truly great man Rogério Duprat, Rogério Duprat
8.
You had your hair recently cut And, feeling awkward, you tried To cover it with both of your hands Your family was in the backyard I knew all their names by heart As if they were royalty from a distant land The sun dazed us both, it was Brighter than it will ever be I was working hard to hide How much I’d waited for that day to come We watched your older brother kiss the bride The sun dazed us both, it was Brighter than it will ever be The newlyweds started to dance To cheesy songs that embarrassed us We made a promise to never be like that “Come up and visit us some time” Your mother told me as she waved goodbye Her dress made strange patterns under the streetlights The sun dazed us both, it was Brighter than it will ever be

Tooth Tree 02:38
The tooth That you washed down the drain Kept growing bigger Day after day As a tooth tree, as a tooth tree You Fed it with Leftovers you hid from lunch Until its roots crawled out The drain Oh, the tooth tree, the tooth tree It wrapped Its roots around your feet You couldn’t cry out for help As it caught you unaware And dragged you down the drain Oh, the tooth tree, the tooth tree
10.
Keyboards under A microscope revealed Complex serial numbers Half-erased by years gone by We sent those numbers To open space Then we waited for an answer And agreed not to tell anyone Not to tell anyone Keyboards under a microscope Long shadows casted by The trees outside Welcomed the short sighted professor That you had became And for the last time They read all those the numbers aloud
11.
Greg Shaw, scissors in hand Was here before And in a stroke of luck Found this long lost song Someone, covered his eyes With a cloth And erased with a knife The memory of what was found All that was left Was a random sound: The voice of a girl singing “This is where I come from” Greg Shaw, scissors in hand In an airport lounge We follow him as he Marks the walls Now all we hear Is a random sound: The voice of a girl singing “This is where I come from”

Cleopatra 01:55
Half asleep She confessed That she visited a seer The day she turned eighteen The seer told her That she was Cleopatra In an earlier incarnation Her voice so soft It was almost a whisper
