Track Name: Luminous
We are the luminous ones of forever, My dear
I'm The sun if you're the moon
and pretty soon I'll eclipse you

We are the luminous ones of forever, My friends
Don't you worry about the times to follow, I'll carry you where the morning has no end

We are the luminous reflection of the sun that's soon to come
You see it rise, and it falls, it bleeds red as it's gazing back at us
Soon the moon will bleed blood red above our heads
Then the sun will rise and save her, give her a kiss on her forehead

I Am coming back for you, I'm gonna give you My name
Don't you listen to those liars, I'm for real and they're just fakes
I Am coming back for you, I'm gonna steal you away
Disappear into the glowing air, get lost in outer space

She looks good in yellow, when she's not wearing white
Helps me see the straight and narrow when I'm blinded in the night
You're My beauty queen, if you know just what I mean
You shot me from your bow like an arrow and I landed on the scene

I Am coming back for you, I'm gonna give you My name
Don't you listen to those liars, I'm for real and they're just fakes
I Am coming back for you, I'm gonna steal you away
Disappear into the glowing air, get lost in outer space

I, I need some water cause I'm burning lately, I, I
I, I need someone to hurry up and save me

I Am coming back for you, I'm gonna give you My name
Don't you listen to those liars, I'm for real and they're just fakes
I Am coming back for you, I'm gonna steal you away
Disappear into the glowing air, get lost in outer space

I'm comin' back for you, I'm comin' back for you, I'm comin' back for you, for you honey
I'm comin' back for you, I'm comin' back for you, I'm comin' back for you, for you honey
I'm comin' back for you, I'm comin' back for you, I AM COMIN BACK FOR YOU, FOR YOU, FOR YOU, for me, FOR YOU
Track Name: Moonlight
Do you hear the buzz between the birds and bees
It's in the air blowing through the trees
Something here no longer feels the same

The two of you were trying to hide
In the shade of a tree on the other side
Darkness could never hide your beauty from My eyes

Whoa, Oh Caught on fire with desire turned our backs to the sun
Whoa, Oh I used to hold you so close that we looked like one

Oh, My dear I wish it wasn't so
Seems that now, you have to go
I've hidden this place until the day I can come take you away

Even in all the pain dear child
When the moon bleeds bloodshot red in your eyes
Just move and sway, just move and sway let The Spirit take you away

Whoa, Oh Caught on fire with desire under sheets of the sun
Whoa, Oh I was holding you so close that we looked like one

Moonlight stole your heart
Before our love could even shed a spark
Hold on until you see the sunrise
I'm standing there waiting with fire burning in My eyes

We are all ships searching for lover's shores
Hearts are now anchored we're searching no more
Braving our way through the darkest of night
Dressed in the skin of Your luminescent light

Moonlight stole your heart
Before our love could even shed a spark
Hold on until you see the sunrise
I'm standing there waiting with fire burning in My eyes

Standing there waiting with fire burning in My eyes
Track Name: Scales
We've got two eyes on you
You have none on me
We're taking all that you stole
You're blinded by your greed (that green)
We are waking up
While you're falling asleep
We will take you down
Make you fall down to your knees

Sugar daddy, fly on a trap
Stuck on that honey, money mister give it back
Show yourself off that stage
So we can fix the mess you made

You've been playing the scales, and you're found guilty

Turn the tables downside up
Cause you lined your pockets with blood
You could never get enough
Now we're stripping you bare like a flood

You've been playing the scales, and you're found guilty
I've been paying your bail, and I found that you owe me

I want you to know, what you forged by hand will turn to sand
Why can't you see, that you stole from me

You stole from me

Why can't you see, that you stole from

You've been playing the scales, and you're found guilty
I've been paying your bail, and I found that you owe me
You've been placed on the scales, and you're found guilty
Track Name: The Rope (Sea Of Light)
I want to swing on a rope over water
I hold so tightly I won't fall in

Uneasy, my dear soul, as I climb I won't falter
I'm contemplating diving in

Won't you meet me at the sky and sea
We'll end the dark of day
A thief will come to me in the night
And wash me clean

I climbed so high on that rope over water
I grew so scared of jumping in
Begin again, that's what He said

Won't you meet me at the sky and sea
We'll end the dark of day
A thief at eve will come to me, do you hear the words I say?
I don't know when the horns will blow
But meet me in the sea of light
And wash me clean

Won't you dip me into cool, clean water
Empty canvas with velvet sky
Paint me there with colors we've never seen before

Won't you meet me at the sky and sea
I'll end the dark of day

If you believe me in the sky and sea
I'll end the dark of ay
Meet me in the sea of light
Won't you wash me clean?
Won't you wash me clean?
Won't you wash me clean (In the sea of light)?
Won't you wash me clean?
Won't you wash me clean?
