The Empyrean

The Empyrean is the eighth solo album by John Frusciante, released worldwide on January 20, 2009 through Record Collection.

Slow stepping out of the mud volcano
You can't stop me, I'm undegradable
Starvation is like a game to me
Radiation is just afraid of me
Slow steppers or little water bears
Oviparous throughout the Phanerozoic Eon
Three segments soak on a piece of moss
You can't kill me, keep trying day, by day, by day
They're after daylight
You keep on living in the Phanerozoic Eon
Off to daylight
All the people in my head
And all the faces that I've met
I want to love and not forget
They always seem to go away
All the pieces of my head
And all bad dreams I can't forget
Are all the memories that last
These fuckers live like tardigrades
Tardigrada survives, it's out of this world
Skinny dipping in pools of boiling alcohol
I freeze, you pour the ice into a cup
Lose water, take in your legs and curl up
Oh how did we survive, we ain't alright
Keep flowing upstream and swim in shoshonite
Mooncrashed by Israeli satellite
Colonize the looming lunar dark side
Off to daylight
You keep pretending it's the Phanerozoic Eon
After daylight
Careless without danger must have been so cruel for you
Maybe the Phanerozoic Eon's over, I don't know
