Track Name: Past Lives on the Range
you'll always own your past lives
they settle in the archives
you're drivin' on the range

but even with these lawless limbs
that disobey again
you're findin' that they change
you're findin' that things change

we may have traced this mesh
a different way
but here in this space
we're feelin' much the same

we may not make our way
identically
but we both wrestle
our lives from in the past

we're drivin' on the range
Track Name: A-V-E-R-I-E
where are the pages
i need to flip through?
oh well, they'll show up
just some other time
who is this new one
who's staring at me?
all this inflection
i'll let it be
look now, the show's on
but what does it mean?
oh well, i'll grow up
another time

it's funny to think
there's space and there's time
then there's you
oh, you don't know much of anything yet
maybe you do

it's just funny to think
there's logic, there's reason
then here's you
oh, you don't know much of anything yet
maybe you do
Track Name: Vaff
on this mighty fine evenin'
there's a place for retreatin'
a house that's servin' order
all throughout the night

it's missing that confusion
that accompanies most everything
a thousand million billion
light years from us now

on this mighty slow mornin'
there's a spot for restorin'
a house that's takin' orders
all throughout the day

it's missing that density
that accompanies most anything
a million billion trillion
light years from it now
Track Name: Functional
excluding some convictions
collectively we're functional
we're functioning

starts at the root
the heart that beats

traverse further down
deviation
deviation

gifts and vices divided up

but no
i won't let jealousy
get the best of me
this time

excluding some convictions
connectedly we're functional
we're functioning

connectedly
we're functional

deep near the leaves
evolution
evolution

gotta be all we can be

but no
can't let a legacy
do away with me
this time
Track Name: Parade of Entities
what follows you
came before you
it's followin'
still, it's followin'
but sure, you found someone
somethin' else followin' you

compass needle points
can't be sayin' no to you

you're leadin' the parade
you're leadin' the parade
of entities

you're leadin' the parade
you're leadin' the parade
of entities

you're leadin' the parade
you're leadin' the parade
of entropy
of entities
Track Name: Hibernation Mode
to hell with being exposed
tiptoe into the dimness
where you're not prey
and maybe we'll surface
on the other side okay
maybe better

do you believe it?
the thing's half gone again

need to slow down
slow down
if you want to speed up
so you'd have guessed it
i'll be a groundhog
i'll be camouflaged
so much to propagate
just go and hibernate

hibernation mode
Track Name: Chaos and the Little One
you're a fearless little one, you are
you got it from your ancestors
the ones you will never know
they're cruisin' in your veins

it's quite a special feeling
sitting with you
saying nothing

rest your little head
that we've all compromised
there's dreaming to be done

you're a funny little one
tunin' out all the chaos
doing things your own way
you're snoozin' on the couch

it's quite a special feeling
laying with you
doing nothing

rest your little legs
that we've all pushed and pulled
there's dreaming to be done
dreaming to be done
Track Name: The Future is Shiny
if anything collides
well let it pass right through
always correctin'
the camera pointed at you

there was a soothing song
skips in my memory
next to the taxis
in the city screamin' by

remember the shading?
and the islands
goin' as far as you could go?

remember the future?
well it's right now
and look at it shining

if something's goin' wrong
well feed it to the queue
always escapin'
from trouble comin' for you

there was a soothing song
skips in my memory
next to the spaceships
in the jungle losin' lives

remember the textures?
all the green men
doin' things you'd make 'em do?

remember the future?
well it's right here
just look at it shining
