Potz Honestly one of the most underappreciated bands in my collection. They have a unique flow carried by the groovy(?) bass and dreamy vocals. The entire album is fantastic. Something to get lost in.

Track Name: Shorelines
out here

theres no impossible

on this isle several miles from our home




no fear

of the illogical

till the thrill makes you ill inside




fire dancing in my eyes

while landscapes fill my mind

construct a grand design

soft glowing paradise




no time

rushing us all along

slips like sand thru our hands trying to hold it all




shorelines

round everything beautiful

catching dreams by the seams all night





fire dancing in my eyes

while landscapes fill my mind

construct a grand design

soft glowing paradise
Track Name: Astronomer
another day to waste until the sun goes down

another night thats right for all the lights around




outside its getting warmer every day now

dont let the days get shorter any way how




look out as far as you can see

a life that you wouldnt believe

walk home underneath the sky

from here doesnt seem as high

theres plenty of lights and theres plenty of stars

bright as they ever were

but its not about lights and its not about stars

just a modern astronomer




find a new perspective every single time

form a new collective if your so inclined

starts with a fascination

of the unknown

past the infatuation

where did it come from





look out as far as you can see

a life that you wouldnt believe

walk home underneath the sky

from here doesnt seem as high

theres plenty of lights and theres plenty of stars

bright as they ever were

but its not about lights and its not about stars

just a modern astronomer
Track Name: Hourglass
they dont recognize your words

no one can hear you anyways




communicate with the animals

i know they all understand

sleep outside like an animal

we know were just like them




no where else we leave ourselves

when time grows tired life expires







no recollection last

through every years hourglass




sit and wait for a better day

follow the way back home

never mind the incredible

back to a basic life




no where else we leave ourselves

when time grows tired life expires

feed the cycle endless spiral

our endeavor last forever
Track Name: Tunnel Vision
speak narrow thoughts softly

weakness is all they see

tunnel vision guides our fate

indecision blocking our way




find another way

theres no time to waste another day

harmless thoughts to tear you down

coming up from deep underground

just look away




no secrets worth hiding

fold all the silver linings

embrace the moment

no tomorrow

replace you anger

erase your sorrow





find another way

theres no time to waste another day

harmless thoughts to tear you down

coming up from deep underground

just look away
Track Name: Empty Letter
empty letter last ive ever heard

ringing echoes

time sequestered wrapped in beggars rags

one by one

power struggle burst the bubbled throne

disconnect and ill be on my way
Track Name: Mirrors
coiled in silk

right where the cool water spills

over the sky

nightmares youve built

twist around murderers guilt

dont you know why




locked inside stasis wanders

helping hide places ive been




all this time paralyzed

sinking to our compromise

let me go its not too late

take me down and walk away




sleep now

sleep all you can

dreams gather over you

just relax and close your eyes




mirrors advance

joined by their endless chants

they will be heard

shadows glance

siphons a mindless trance

heres your reward





locked inside stasis wanders

helping hide places ive been




all this time paralyzed

sinking to our compromise

let me go its not too late

take me down and walk away




sleep now

sleep all you can

dreams gather over you

just relax and close your eyes
