Track Name: O Furious
o furious
confine me not
o madness and trembling
confine me not

what do my shouts
amid lightnings mean
what do my shouts
amid raging winds mean
confine me not

o to return to paradise
bashful and feminine
confine me not

to speed where there
is space enough
to speed where there
is air enough
at last

to be absolved
from previous ties
i from mine and
you from yours
to be lost if it must be so

i am sufficient as i am
as i am
Track Name: Like To Be
i'd like to be
a fish in the sea
just swimming and swimming
and swimming around
but that's not me

'cause i can see
into me
and i'm quivering
and shivering
and quavering
and wavering
but you won't see

so i sing
silly anthems
and i scream
expletives
are you listening

i'd like to be
free from thee
just glittering
and glistening
and shimmering
and gleaming
leave me be
Track Name: Emancipation
like so many
i'm hardly free
though i would like to be
you and me
are we just machines

just resist it
rise against it
rage until it's right
don't resign
sparkle and shine

come oppressors
come enslaved
come one and all
liberation
emancipation
