Track Name: This is Alcatraz
Spending days, in so many ways, this is Alcatraz,
where the lights flicker precariously,
and the wind flutters carelessly,
depriving me of so much sleep,
stomach plays, at knitting,
oh these keys are so fitting,
to the slips,
I dream of you still,
like whales and their krill,
I inhale,
digest all of the lights from a white box,
am I now machine?

I was an animal,
I was an animal,
I was an animal.
Track Name: Yangshuo
It oils the cogs,
and oils my blood,
it soils my soul and takes over,
and its hounding me every step of the way,
but it's just the way it's meant to stay,

My love is an open one, it is a bruised one,
and my arms have not felt the same since they left Yangshuo,

But I fear no evil when she's around,
fear no loves lost when she is dressed in white,
I guess I just lost my head,
I just lost my head,

My love is an open one, it is a shattered one,
and my arms have not felt the same since they left Hong Kong,

But I fear no evil when she's around,
and I know it hurts to carve the bad from good,
I guess I just lost my head,
I just lost my head.
Track Name: Summit
When home was never in a foot-stretch,
and love was always on the hills,
I turned my back on religion,
and ran for the thrills,

We never were your kind of people,
we never saw what we become,
monsters of the young,

We caught ourselves on the summit,
we never knew what we had 'til we lost it,
never knew what we were 'til we saw ourselves,

Well I barely saw her coming,
hardly noticed the blow,
and it sweltered my nose,
reminds me of home,

We caught ourselves on the summit,
we never knew what we had 'til we lost it,
never knew what we were 'til we saw ourselves.
