Martian Raft 03:39
Martian Raft lyrics: Hi High (Watering ferns, making space) Lost myself too many times, to lose my face Open up a stitch in time, reveal God’s grace Are we going the right way? Trust me I’m a good map reader I’d get lost if I didn’t read the signs Step into an abyss of timelessness Wake up hear we’ve got ninety-nine months left Slide into an icecap, a global titanic Can you make a space lifeboat in time? My Mars backyard, it has no flowers No trampolines on which to play You can’t go outside, ‘cause you need a spacesuit You could’ve played on earth but it dripped away Hi High (Watering ferns, making space) Lost myself too many times, to lose my face Open up a stitch in time, reveal God’s grace Are we going the right way? Cosmic philosopher Toilet cleaner I’d get lost if I didn’t read the signs Step into the raft we’re flying West Take a turn we’re in the same Fourth World Mess Slide into an icecap, a global titanic Can you make a space lifeboat in time?

Fortuna 04:06
Fortuna Here all alone I hear it's all too much That I am not enough Tell myself it's a phase The ups and the downs What goes down, must come up A circle, or a cycle, or a wheel Home How can I hope to find you anywhere but here and now? How many times have you fallen to the bottom, heard someone lightly step on your grave, do a dance with sticks and stones on your face? I ask you to remember a flower Call to attention a friend's face The touch of sunlight on your skin The feel of tears when cries the rain - Om A circle, or a cycle, or a wheel
