Track Name: I Am a Planet
now that the solar system's gone, the oceans have froze over
don’t know if we’re the only one, so far from the controller

figuring out who I am in the dark
is the saddest thing I’ve ever done
there is no light to reflect, only infinite depth
for on and on

I am a planet, I am alone out here
drifting along without my sun
I am a planet, I am alone out here
drifting along without my sun

and now the gravity is gone, there’s nothing left to bind us
so far from every other thing, no ones going to find us

figuring out who I am in the dark
is the saddest thing I’ve ever done
there is no light to reflect, only infinite depth
for on and on

I am a planet, I am alone out here
drifting along without my sun
I am a planet, I am alone out here
drifting along without my sun

what will become of me
what will become of me
what will become of me
now that I am free

I am a planet, I am alone out here
drifting along without my sun
I am a planet, I am alone out here
drifting along without my sun
drifting along without my sun
Track Name: Sleepyhead
well the unconscious is cruel
I think it’s ruling you

you lie, nullified and fried, sky high,
but the mind needs exorcise, so open half an eye

to float up stream can be nice
but the alarm has rung twice

you’ve pulled the covers on your head, instead played dead
and in your drowsy glaze, you disappear for days

lost in a dream, riding cloud nine over the moon
hey sleepyhead,
the butterfly dies if he don’t break out of his cocoon

your dream will never come true,
if dreaming’s all that you do

you got to make it to the world on time this time
if only to arrive, not even to survive

far out of reach, riding cloud nine over the moon
hey sleepyhead,
the butterfly dies if he don’t break out of his cocoon
I said the butterfly dies if he don’t break out of his cocoon
