    IM IN LOVE WITH THIS ALBUM AAAHHH



    Sun (open)

    With golden string
    Our universe was clothed in light
    Pulling at the seams
    Our once barren world now brims with life
    That we may fall in love
    Every time we open up our eyes
    I guess space, and time
    Takes violent things, angry things
    And makes them kind

    We are the dust of dust
    We are the apple of God's eye
    We are infinite as the universe we hold inside

    Infinity times infinity
    Infinity times infinity times infinity
    Infinity times infinity times infinity times infinity
    Let there be light, let there be light, let me be right

    The dust of dust
    We are the apple of God's eye
    We are infinite as the universe we hold inside

    We are the dust of dust
    We are the apple of God's eye
    We are infinite as the universe we hold inside

    Let there be light, let there be light, let me be right

    With golden string
    Our universe was brought to life
    That we may fall in love
    Every time we open up our eyes



    mercury (open)
    Rows of houses
    Sound asleep
    Only street lights
    Notice me

    I am desperate
    If nothing else
    In a holding pattern
    To find myself

    I talk in circles
    I talk in circles
    I watch for signals
    For a clue

    How to feel different
    How to feel new
    Like science fiction
    Bending truth

    No one can unring this bell
    Unsound this alarm, unbreak my heart new
    God knows, I am dissonance
    Waiting to be swiftly pulled into tune

    I’ll go anywhere you want
    Anywhere you want
    Anywhere you want me
    I’ll go anywhere you want
    Anywhere you want
    Anywhere you want me
    I’ll go anywhere you want
    Anywhere you want
    Anywhere you want me
    I’ll go anywhere you want
    Anywhere you want me

    I know the further I go
    The harder I try, only keeps my eyes closed
    And somehow I’ve fallen in love
    With this middle ground at the cost of my soul

    Yet I know, if I stepped aside
    Released the controls, you would open my eyes
    That somehow, all of this mess
    Is just my attempt to know the worth of my life…

    Made of precious metals
    Precious metals
    Precious metals inside
    Made of precious metals
    Precious metals
    Precious metals inside
    Made of precious metals
    Precious metals
    Precious metals

    I’ll go anywhere you want
    Anywhere you want
    Anywhere you want me
    I’ll go anywhere you want
    Anywhere you want me



    venus (open)

    The night sky once ruled my imagination.
    Now I turn the dials with careful calculation.
    After a while, I thought I’d never find you.
    I convinced myself that I would never find you,
    When suddenly I saw you.

    At first I thought you were a constellation.
    I made a map of your stars, then I had a revelation:
    You’re as beautiful as endless,
    You’re the universe I’m helpless in.
    An astronomer at my best
    When I throw away the measurements.

    Like a telescope,
    I will pull you so close
    'til no space lies in between.

    And suddenly I see you.
    Suddenly I see you.

    I was a billion little pieces
    'til you pulled me into focus.
    Astronomy in reverse,
    It was me who was discovered.

    (I thought I’d never find you,
    When suddenly I saw you.)

    Like a telescope,
    I will pull you so close,
    'til no space lies in between.

    Then suddenly I see you.




    Earth (open)

    I dig 'til my shovel tells a secret,
    Swear to the earth that I will keep it,
    Brush off the dirt
    And let my change of heart occur.

    Sold soon after the appraisal,
    The hammer struck the auction table
    Louder than anything I've ever heard.

    Fault lines tremble underneath my glass house.
    But I put it out of my mind
    Long enough to call it courage
    To live without a lifeline.
    I bend the definition
    Of faith to exonerate my blind eye.
    'Til the sirens sound, I'm safe.

    Meanwhile, my family's taking shelter.
    The sparks send the fire down the wire,
    A countdown begins,
    Until the dynamite gives in.

    The echo, as wide as the equator,
    Travels through a world of built up anger-
    Too late to pull itself together now.

    Fault lines tremble underneath my glass house.
    But I put it out of my mind
    Long enough to call it courage
    To live without a lifeline.
    I bend the definition
    Of faith to exonerate my blind eye.
    'Til the sirens sound, I'm safe.

    There was an earthquake.
    There was an avalanche of change.
    We were so afraid,
    We cried ourselves a hurricane.
    There were floods,
    And tidal waves over us,
    We folded our hands and prayed.
    Like a domino,
    These wildfires grow and grow
    Until a brand new world takes shape.

    Fault lines tremble underneath my glass house.
    But I put it out of my mind
    Long enough to call it courage
    To live without a lifeline.
    I bend the definition
    Of faith to exonerate my blind eye.
    'Til the sirens sound, I'm safe.

    'Til the sirens sound, I'm safe.
    'Til the sirens sound, I'm safe.

    mars (open)

    We laid our names to rest
    Along the dotted line.
    We left our date of birth
    And our history behind.

    We were full of life,
    We could barely hold it in.
    We were amateurs at war,
    Strangers to suffering.

    We made our families proud
    But scared at the same time.
    We promised we’d be safe,
    Another lie from the front lines.

    Our backs against the wall,
    We’re surrounded and afraid.
    Our lives now in the hands
    Of the soldiers taking aim.

    Our questions ricochet
    Like broken satellites:
    How our bodies, born to heal,
    Become so prone to die?

    Though time is ruthless,
    It showed us kindness in the end,
    By slowing down enough,
    A second chance to make amends.
    As life replayed, we heard a voice proclaim:

    "lay your weapons down!
    They’re calling off the war
    On account of losing track
    Of what we’re fighting for."

    So we found our way back home,
    Let our cuts and bruises heal.
    While a brand-new war began,
    One that no one else could feel.

    Our nights have grown so long.
    Now we beg for sound advice.
    "let the brokenness be felt
    'til you reach the other side.
    There is goodness in the heart
    Of every broken man
    Who comes right up to the edge
    Of losing everything he has."

    We were young enough to sign
    Along the dotted line.

    Now we’re young enough to try
    To build a better life.
    To build a better life.






    jupiter (open)

    I wrote it down in the winter of 1610.
    Just a secret under lock and key until then.
    While collecting the stars, I connected the dots.
    I don’t know who I am, but now I know who I’m not.
    I’m just a curious speck that got caught up in orbit.
    Like a magnet it beckoned my metals toward it.

    Make my messes matter.
    Make this chaos count.
    Let every little fracture in me
    Shatter out loud.

    Make my messes matter.

    saturn (open)

    You taught me the courage of stars before you left.
    How light carries on endlessly, even after death.
    With shortness of breath, you explained the infinite.
    How rare and beautiful it is to even exist.

    I couldn’t help but ask
    For you to say it all again.
    I tried to write it down
    But I could never find a pen.
    I’d give anything to hear
    You say it one more time,
    That the universe was made
    Just to be seen by my eyes.

    With shortness of breath, I’ll explain the infinite
    How rare and beautiful it truly is that we exist.

    neptune (open)

    Pitch black, pale blue,
    It was a stained glass
    Variation of the truth
    And I felt empty handed.

    You let me set sail
    With cheap wood.
    So I patched up
    Every leak that I could,
    'Til the blame grew too heavy.

    Stitch by stitch I tear apart.
    If brokenness is a form of art,
    I must be a poster child prodigy.
    Thread by thread I come apart.
    If brokenness is a work of art,
    Surely this must be my masterpiece.

    I'm only honest when it rains.
    If I time it right, the thunder breaks
    When I open my mouth.
    I want to tell you but I don't know how.

    I'm only honest when it rains,
    An open book with a torn out page,
    And my ink's run out.
    I want to love you but I don't know how.

    I don't know how,
    No I don't know how.
    I don't know how.
    I want to love you but I don't know how.

    I want to love you...

    Pitch black, pale blue,
    These wild oceans
    Shake what's left of me loose
    Just to hear me cry mercy.

    A strong wind at my back,
    So I lift up the only sail that I have,
    This tired white flag.

    I'm only honest when it rains.
    If I time it right, the thunder breaks
    When I open my mouth.
    I want to tell you but I don't know how.

    I'm only honest when it rains,
    An open book with a torn out page,
    And my ink's run out.
    I want to love you but I don't know how.

    I don't know how, know how, know how,
    I want to love you but I don't know how.

    I want to love you...





    pluto (open)

    I woke up from the same dream:
    Falling backwards, falling backwards
    ’Til it turned me inside out.

    Now I live a waking life
    Of looking backwards, looking backwards;
    A model citizen of doubt.

    Until one day I had enough
    Of this exercise of trust.
    I leaned in and let it hurt,
    And let my body feel the dirt.
    When I break pattern, I break ground.
    I rebuild when I break down.
    I wake up more awake than I’ve ever been before.

    Still I’m pinned under the weight
    Of what I believed would keep me safe.
    So show me where my armor ends,
    Show me where my skin begins.
    Like a final puzzle piece
    It all makes perfect sense to me…
    The heaviness that I hold in my heart belongs to gravity.
    The heaviness that I hold in my heart’s been crushing me.

    I’ve been worried all my life,
    A nervous wreck most of the time.
    I’ve always been afraid of heights,
    Of falling backwards, falling backwards.
    I’ve been worried all my life.

    ’Til one day I had enough
    Of this exercise of trust.
    I leaned in and let it hurt,
    Let my body feel the dirt.
    When I break pattern, I break ground.
    I rebuild when I break down.
    I wake up more awake than I’ve ever been before.

    Still I’m pinned under the weight
    Of what I believed would keep me safe.
    So show me where my armor ends,
    Show me where my skin begins.
    Like a final puzzle piece,
    It all makes perfect sense to me…
    The heaviness that I hold in my heart belongs to gravity.
    The heaviness in my heart belongs to gravity.
