Track Name: Mnemonic Tongues - The Mountain: Base Camp I
I let her crawl through my veins, drinking the blood as she went
I didn't say a thing because I knew it might just end
We all become the dirt, we all revert to air
The molecules just push alone like the plagues of a thousand years

We all forgot how to read and write our names
And at this height she can't recall who I am
A sense of scale the ground becomes the sky
A sense of scale above the clouds the ground becomes the sky again Perspective lost in all these peaks
The colors merge and lose meaning

We all for got how to read and write our names
Track Name: Mnemonic Tongues - The Mountain: Base Camp II
I watched the pages walk away
The yellow age and curling
We're cast in casts from far away
And woke up much to early
I wrote you in there once before
It felt scrawled and fleeting
Dried up ink would turn away
Loops and lines just laughed at me

Throwing glass in a stone house
And its backwards with the same effect
Throwing stone in a glass house
And it's forward with the same effect
Throwing glass in a stone house and its backwards with the same effect

And, the words came back on their own
Abandoned by the paper, the ink return to liquid
The shapes were all but gone
Track Name: Mnemonic Tongues - The Mountain: Base Camp III
Far back down into the hole we found
Misplaced our minds again and again
Far back down into the hole we found
Taught us to celebrate to death

And all we found was the lonely sound
And never used our eyes again

Everything is so fucked up it scares me

Solely as an after thought of leaving

Slowly our whole lives
