Rewind Reviews The way this album contains so many different sounds and pulls from so many different influences while still managing to maintain this otherworldly atmosphere is incredible. Favorite track: Reflections Of A Moth At Moonlight.

about

Recorded in the winter breeze, Is this psychedelic? I don't know. opening needle progress consists of a sole captain of a sinking ship. His name is Needle and he likes to keep his sail salty. This album is the first of many voyages into the fourth dimension, open the walls and the floor becomes massive.

Sleepy Caju made this album sound the way it does so a massive thank you to him.

Headphones recommended to allow melting process.

Track Name: Vegetation Slide (ft. Numbers In The Dream)
When we close our eyes,
And we can't fly,
When we hate our life,
And we want to die,
When we lay down in fire,
And we can't burn away,
When we try to play,
And we can't find a way,
When we can no longer breath,
We will get relief,

When we burn our souls in time,
We scream out we are blind,
When I walk down open streets,
Gonna wash away my feet,
When I sleep in an open bed,
Gonna wash away my head,
When I can't feel a thing,
Gonna give you my heart on a string.

Words by Numbers In The Dream
Track Name: Bong
Come in, come in,
Take this test,
Look away from each other,
In our defense,
We don't want to provide influence,

So now we can see,
The results are through the roof,
To tell you the truth,
Don't be glum,
Do you see life missing pieces or as one?

Everybody can see,
Your passing off ability,
This negativity,
The drama,
Think calmer,
Or end up in a box at twenty three,
It's all my fault,
'Cause I hate me.
Track Name: Cul-De-Sac (ft. Calebass)
There is a broken mirror on the floor,
Pickup one shard,
Pickup one shard,
And you behold,
Not one of you but two, two, two of you,
Two, two, two of you,
Two, two, two of you,
Two, two, two of you,
Two, two of you,

There is a certain number on the door,
There is a certain number on the door,
Say, say, say it twice,
Say, say, say it twice,
You, you, you are in,
You, you, you are in,

Three pairs of footprints running down the corridor,
I think they all belong to me,
Maybe, maybe, maybe I've been here before,
Maybe, maybe I've been here before,
Maybe, maybe I've been here before,

(When you know, when you know, when you know,
Bring it on)

Bringing me back,
Bringing me, bringing me,
Bringing me back.

Words by Calebass
Track Name: Drapes Foi
I lost my mind,
I am the conductor,
I am the conductor,
I am the conductor,
Of my own universe,
My own universe,
My own universe,
My own universe,

I shall,
I shall,
It's only unusual,
It's only unusual,
It's not enclosed.
Track Name: Are We Home Yet?
Are we home yet?
And just a little bit more,
Over raindrop drives across the countryside,
Wet soil on my baking footsteps,
Where is home anymore?
I thought I knew where it was before,
To confusion to now implore,
Sleeping spots and living room squats,
This bile I thrive just to survive,
Movement always another place again today,
Next stop shows no promise, no hope, I slope,
I've tried to find a place away from my mind,
But you can't escape your living shape,
Are we home yet?
And just a little more,
The day will come with the rise of the sun, the sky, the birds, the babies and bees, the trees, the lake,
And you'll be home when you don't awake,
And you'll be home when your bodies cage begins to flake,
And you'll be home when your heart refuses to shake.
Track Name: Sirens Rhythmic Minds
Uncontrollable forces pulsate,
Past around the walls and replay,
The loop that lasts a day,
Invisible to all but the beholder,
So whilst they may provide a shoulder,
A problem shared is not a problem halved,
Moments pass in awe,
You wasn't like this before,
Walk the tightrope through life,
And if you come back alive be grateful,
Pressure builds energy declines,
Numb fear these are signs,
Signs that lead to nowhere,
You can't turn off what you want to leave,
Embedded close, a brand upon your sleeve,
Every time you look down and loose focus,
It'll be there, the symptom that never sleeps,
Keep going, you've got to keep going,
But with every relapse the helplessness growing,
The sickness that remains un-showing,
The crossroad options are still the same,
You've got to try,
Or else you may as well die.
Track Name: Fiscal Dirt
I'm out of range from my shadow,
The harmony of colour surrounds me,
I'm out of range from my shadow,
The dirt where I lay confounds me.
Track Name: Out From Everywhere
Behind you're just a face,
So walk with grace,
It's the visual image of your mind,

Enough of being sensitive,
Forgetting the fate on your plate,
Follow tracks but don't come back,

Sit up alone and feel the tone of the nightfall,
The light before dawn is the loneliest of them all,

So throw all your thoughts,
To the sky,
Maybe they'll answer you,
This time,
So keep your being to the sky,
What good is saying I tried.
Track Name: It Can
Candlelight for daylight,
Entices waxwork models,
All just dolls to be,
In jagged company.
Track Name: Grace/Atmospheric
Tell me what to do,
Tell me what to say,
I don't feel ok walking around with you,
In here,

Watching lights and dust,
Dust and dirt,
Makes your head hurt to be in consistent pain is it,
In vain,

I'm falling out,
Of the atmosphere,
I'm falling out,
It was less severe,

Kill me once,
Kill me twice again,
Pick up your coat don't forget to gloat,
About it,

Leave it at the door,
Kick it to the floor,
Keep it from the rain 'cause you'll get the blame and we'll,
Shout it,

I'm falling out,
Of the atmosphere,
I'm falling out,
If we were ever near.
Track Name: I Hope For Implications
Die and goodbye,
What was said on that,
Sunday afternoon,
Cold as the house,
Sends shocks through the spine,
What life is time,

Sit upon the edge of pain,
Curiosity leads to be insane,
The windows stare,
At current affairs,

I saw it coming from a distance ago,
Between the gap of air where no light will go,
I hope for implications,

White winter,
Sung hunter in the trees,
He enjoys the bitter pine breeze,
Manipulative minds,
In an old crockery shop,
I'll live forever at my next stop,

Stones and rock lean on wooden blocks,
Brain trauma be free from electro shocks,
I hope for implications,

Never was there a battery built to soothe,
The hole in my soul I hope to remove,
I hope for implications.
