Track Name: Fools Know More - The Thought That Binds
In your every whisper
There is an invocation
In your every complaint
Lies a wish to subjugate

Are you gonna feed the thought that binds you
Are you gonna seek the will to break through
Are you gonna seize the opportunity
Are you gonna be your own worst enemy

In every counter move
Lies consent to play the game
Which one's the victim?
Who's the one who perpetrates?

It may feel like the worlds against you
Have you been the one to contribute to it too?
Time to clear the muck around you
Time to bear a blade to clear a path through it too

It takes a lot of soul
To get your heart in place
It takes a lot to know
How to live in grace
Track Name: Fools Know More - Don't be a Dick to Yourself
So many people use their intelligence
To come up with reasons why they're fucked
When the one you love insists on putting themselves down
It's like part of them saying that your love is wrong

Baby you can test me if you will just don't be a dick to yourself
Darling I can take a jibe or two just don't be a dick to yourself

Does it really make you feel good to doubt us so?
Or to keep on pushing till I let you go?
It might appease your self destructive mind
But it could have been alright if you left those thoughts behind

Baby you can test me if you will just don't be a dick to yourself
Darling I can take a jibe or two just don't be a dick to yourself

If you only I could help you build your ego, lessen your pride
Cause honey I know how it feels to live with a dissonant mind
But now I'm leaving that shit behind

Baby you can test me if you will just don't be a dick to yourself
Darling I can take a jibe or two just don't be a dick to yourself
Track Name: Fools Know More - When You Put It Like That
Every's dealing with the devil inside
But you doubled down on a dick move, Luciferian pride
Thought is would elevate you, everyone would abide
But you dug your own hole and you fell inside

When you put it like that, makes it seem like you can't face the facts
Playing the Oppressor again, while you put on a victim face
When you talk like that, everybody knows that you ain't all that
You put somebody down, feel like a King but you're playing the clown

Everybody deals with, obsession and blame
Yeah you've had it hard once we can all say the same
Someone done you wrong a long time ago
That's history baby, you've got to stop passing that shit along

When you put it like that, makes it seem like you can't face the facts
Playing the Oppressor again, while you put on a victim face
When you talk like that, everybody knows that you ain't all that
You put somebody down, feel like a King but you're playing the clown
Track Name: Fools Know More - Transcendence
I am the sun
I am the rain
Close your eyes and feel the same

I am the moon
In the sky
Look up high and wonder why

I am the beat
In the heart
Of every soul that's taking part

But tell me who are you?

Transcendence

I am the song
I am the words
Move your lips to the verse

I am the point
In the glare
Of the light that's everywhere

I am the drop
In the ocean
Boundless chaos set in motion

But tell me where does it end with you?
Track Name: Fools Know More - Orbiting Bodies
Orbiting bodies, in love's gravity
You thought she was gone, then she comes back your way
She don't want to hurt you so she pulls away
She don't wanna be without you back from outer space
That's what you get when you love a satellite
The stronger the attraction, the more unstable the flight

Orbiting bodies, in love's gravity
What goes around comes around, like relativity
Under the weight of her responsibility
She can't just love you in all vulnerability
It's so exciting the tension and release
Here she comes again, like comet, hurtling
Track Name: Fools Know More - Don't Take It Apart If You Can't Put It Back Together
Let me borrow your point of view, I'm done with mine
Why don't you tell me a thing or two, pull my head in line

Don't take it apart, if you can't put it back together
To heal is your desire, but you can't always make things better

Our love,
Like passing storms
I've got a world to show you
Been stumbling
Like a new born
All this love and death things become unglued

I tried to satisfy your mind, like with friends before
But all that's you just goes on and on, never know you, there's always more
Walking on the grass, barefoot, there's wonder in your eyes
The way that you react distracts, my complicated mind

Don't take it apart, if you can't put it back together
I wanted to set your heart at ease, but some things I can't make better

Bringing me to life
Without even trying
In eccentric orbit like two satellites
I've got the patience and desire
If you've got the time
Ain't no feeling in the world like when our two hearts combine.

Don't take it apart, if you can't put it back together
I wanted to set your heart at ease, but some things I can't make better
Track Name: Fools Know More - Trying to Make Good of It
I know, I'm a piece of the universe
Therefore why the universe knows abut me
And all of the things that I've seen
That we've gone wrong
But Lord Knows, I'm trying to make good of it
I'm trying to make good of it

I know that we're a piece of the everything
That's why, the everything knows about you
And all of the things that you do
That you've done me wrong
So won't you try and make good of it
I'm trying to make good of it
Lord knows I'm trying to make good of it

The moon's cheeky smile
Says you aren't so small little one
So won't you try and and get by
Make a low into a high

I'm trying to make good of it
Lord knows I'm trying to make good of it
So won't you try and make good of it
Lord knows I'm trying to make good of it
Track Name: Fools Know More - Power at the Brink
There's a being within you that doesn't have your best interests at heart
A Curse of your own creation, but you don't know where it started
It tells you that you're hungry when you've eaten your full
It tells you you're unwanted though there's people all around you

Small people with their big desires
Swollen hearts, breed prideful lies
It's all in you it's not what you have to do
You're stronger than you think
There's power
Even at the brink

You can't kill it by fighting cos you feel all it's pain
You can't argue with it because you and it are the same
It tells you your desires, if only you would hear
Just a part of your being that you need to repair

Small people with their big desires
Swollen hearts, breed prideful lies
It's all in you, don't it tell you what to do
You're stronger than you think
There's power
Even at the brink

Small people with their big desires
Swollen hearts, breed prideful lies
It's all in you don't it control what to do
You're stronger than you think
There's power
Even at the brink
Track Name: Fools Know More - 5 of Swords
There's a creeper strangling his garden
That she promised to maintain
Green vine tethers crawling inside her
Stop her thoughts from floating free

True will, I don't want to fight with life no more
True will, I don't want to fight with love no more

There's a black spell causing her hunger
She parts with money to it's demand
Consuming, never satisfying
Spell of the advertising brand

True will, I don't want to fight with life no more
True will, I don't want to fight with love no more

A Personality inside her
Tells her to give in every time
The vine, growing thick around her
She takes the clippers in her hand!

True will, I don't want to fight with life no more
True will, I don't want to fight with love no more
