originally release as Dayuna on September 9th 2013

this was my first good full length release that I was really proud of. I still play some of these songs live. I plan to re-release this at some point with better mixing/mastering so that'll be exciting when it happens.

Track Name: Talisman
Am I waking up? This seed is not where I left it.
Enter to your throat, solemnly step out into the realm.

Draw swords, turn your back, pivot, sidestep, and relapse.
Some art you call sand; I see it more as I'm standing down.

Stacks of a different scene; "New Pilots Find Lost Circus".
Ambrosia funnelcakes, express but not with purpose.

Where is your home? It's on the switch.

Your sun flies high.
Track Name: Dive
Am I too late for this?
You don't know where we are, do you?
It looks familiar, but I'm not sure either.

Well, we've found our way home.
Is it what you expected?
Waiting for change, oh, but not from you.

And now the tress don't break the fall, I've gone into a cupboard you can't see me now.
Upon closer inspection I can see this wood has faded past its time.
It's time to go.
I'm not ready yet.

We've hit some sort of wall.
So quick to dismiss error on your part, of course, it's mine.
This book is all upside down. I remember your reading.
Lost on the shelf, switch to my room.

Present me to another class of old.
Expecting nothing more than what you're told is grounds for readmission, I don't think the captain rightly knows his time.
Track Name: Five More
Break in, Winter's snowing. I felt the Fall, it triumphed over all.
It was a look of the glass the way it jutted out. I seem to recall a certain saying; "fall back on yourself"

And you wouldn't want me here, and you wouldn't tell me off; "It's over, it's over there"

As you break my fall, I find a new way to connect in a way which wouldn't break my skin.

Charge up, try to meet. Expressing want for shutting all the doors.
Everytime you come 'round, opening like a lock. The drop of a hat means it will happen again. Fall out of your old habits.

In the vein of selling out, I tried to drive the nail into a problem I brought with me. You said to stop and laughed, "What were you thinking? You reminded me of a better life with you."
Track Name: 909
Headline: man escapes from door which never had a key
I see stranger things at times it's scaring me

When will you be back again, not that it's important.
I just figured you'd be there when everything blows up

Oh, and one more thing, could you exhale?
Feeling anxious, now I'm weightless.
Nothing to it, relax, it's not like you weren't there to show me how to fall.
Though all your tips were false, I'm not with you.

I'm ready to go. Now

Thought of fading signs inside my head, remind me of when you were gone.
Experts tell me I should stop and plan and wait and oh man what's the way.
Track Name: Sticks
Settle it down and take me with you, into a house with a clear view of the sea.

Drawing on maps and things that smell old, we see the horizon as a challenge.
Anchors away! Which way will you pull me?
As long as I still can see the land it's fine by me.

The rest is up to you, just leave no exit wound.

Step back, it's just getting better and you're still yourself, be glad that you're at home and not somewhere I can't reach you, tell me once again why we're going away from here.

The mortal said to us, "show us you can bleed", and we just shrugged them off.

It's just another day
Track Name: Pull Up
I don't think that I can climb this tower. You do it for me, I'll give you nothing.
It's not like anybody needs incentive.
Reach the summit, there's this pair of cats. Wait, now where was I?

Explain the metaphore "a jest without a face in my rearview".
When it makes perfect sense then doors will open feel the gust come in
Jumping off again. Paris panned us down. Three points, oh well.
I couldn't catch your fall, not even close you "feel the hearts drip"? I'm a bit worried now.

Humour me in thinking you're dejected. Show signs of quitting! Wait, stop. That's too far.
Lack of forward shouldn't be invented. Unless you're talking with a name on your head; everyone watching.
Track Name: Insomnia
Myself, I'm trying to force myself from falling asleep these days.
This would not win the war. I found a guy with a gun.

My paladin's battle-cry is not "Good for the Good God!"

Say what you will, I'm transparent. Worlds like this build me down.
Out of the woods, I'm crawling for a signal.

Built on the backs of the others, I'm in too deep thought.
Out of your mind, I'm falling for a fall for this.

With you completely, or, otherwise, I figured your plan was sound.
I tried to focus on nothing, it's nothing like cutting your arm off.

When the time comes I'll forget you, incidentally, it's not planned.
I've forgotten where I left you, were you back where I first met you?
Track Name: Dreary
Explaining things to me is never worth your time; it's always the past that comes up. So prove it to me.
Dressing tables, far from stable, you're unkind to people who ask for certain things, there's a method to this. Rewrite it on my way home.

I saw a sign that told me cracks would open from the sky and out would pour a million tigers.

On your way home you had a similar experience but less obtrusive try to make it through the day.

Place yourself upon me, explore a broken ribcage and introduce it to yourself.
Track Name: Wolves
Stricken and carried away is the thing that I lost.
Better to know that once it's done, it's done, and at no cost.
You found one thing wrong with what I'm doing and suddenly that's it we're done "that's the law", goodbye.
