Track Name: Avenue School (2019 REMIX)
we know a place behind the old abandoned school
a deal we made together in the dark
among us and below the soil surface
we buried them and fled out of the park

and all they talk about / and all they live without
and how they run around / and how they touch the ground

if one of us becomes just like the enemy
if one of us betrays the deal we made
together we will have to spend an evening
and bury one more where the first has stayed

and all they talk about / and all they live without
and how they run around / and how they touch the ground

when the time becomes our own
we'll go on and live just like before
Track Name: Toy (2019 REMIX)
take me away in a plastic engine in the sky
wish me the size of a limbless little action figure

it's not enough / for taking off
for taking aim / for breaking up

watch as the sun turns me into an outline on the wall
tracing the lines with a finger, a shadow moving picture

it's not enough / for taking off
for taking aim / for breaking up

floating away from the trouble brewing on the lawn
choosing today to be weightless, flying far and faceless

it's not enough / for taking off
for taking aim / for breaking up
Track Name: The Crush of a Crowded City (2019 REMIX)
in the most crowded center of town
lives a great mass of desperate men
trying to drink all the songs in the air
trying their best to believe the world's real

if their enemies win
they'll be trapped inside an illusion
like the crush of a crowded city

in the lushest of green growing fields
sits an elephant humming a tune
never truly alone with her thoughts
a million microbes alive on her skin

if her enemies win
she'll be trapped inside this illusion
like the crush of a crowded city / that's never quitting
tricked into living / in this crowded city

in a galaxy too big for space
cheapest food for the poorest of men
trying to drink all the songs in the air
trying their best to believe the world's real

if their enemies win
they'll be trapped inside an illusion
like that crush
