Track Name: World of Tomorrow
Take a look at the world of tomorrow
If you would forget your sorrows
You could be there today
When you dream of all that you imagine
Know that its all in a fashion
That will lead you astray

Island, island
Speaking breaks the eerie silence
Its the myna birds that tell us
What we came here to say
Here and now then
With the doctor of the kingdom
The hymns are for to sing them
You'll feel better this way

The paintings are hung while the painters are hanged
But you can't read the thoughts from my mind by drawing blood from my veins
The flesh is dust now but I'm feeling the same
We've been drifting slowly in this direction ever since the big bang

Darlin, darlin
Who tends this perfect garden?
Is it invisible fingers that are just out of frame?
Its almost as if we've been put here on this level
Where below things are disheveled
And above are golden rays

Superstitions
Have you warned the politicians?
Well its all lost in the details on the edge of the page
Ashes ashes
Divide the earthly masses
Behind the Age of Plastic
Where we keep our primates
Track Name: Tomorrow, Tomorrow
Tonight the lights blur around the edges
Tomorrow, tomorrow
We've seen the sights like pigeons on the ledges
Tomorrow, tomorrow

Tonight the words unspoken are in your eyes
So many hearts are broken but not in time

Turn out the lights and burn around the edges
Tomorrow, tomorrow
We ate the time like birdseed on the benches
Tomorrow, tomorrow

Tonight the words unspoken are in your eyes
So many hearts are broken but not in time

I really don't know why I came here
I really don't know why I stayed here

Tonight the lights blur around the edges
Tomorrow, tomorrow
We've seen the sights like pigeons on the ledges
Tomorrow, tomorrow
Track Name: Walking Shadow
AM/FM, I dream alone
Through parking level walls, I seem alone
I listen to the songs on the radio
I seem alone, I dream alone

Those modern girls in elevators
Paper mache trees, Perception's Doors
I stare at the sky, I feel alive
A dog's laugh, pulls me back

2AM on a rainy night
I think you bring gray skies, let's turn out the lights
The walls are melting fast, we know that this won't last
We barely talk, our shadows walk

For every chemical, you trade a piece of your heart, it's inevitable
The pattern on your soul bends and pulls
Down deeper still into the rabbit hole
Track Name: My Tender Comrade
My tender comrade on the front lines
Through the dust of no man's land
I still see your silhouette in the night
My tender comrade man

Barbed wire and trenches separate us
But the jokes you told keep my spirits high
The wind and the rain may dampen the mood
Behind enemy lines
Track Name: Supersaturated
Behind a veil of fog
I'm lost and gone
I will it to be
Supersaturated and in 3-D

I lost my way
So I took the long way
And I found out the hard way
But now I'm back among the living

I sculpt islands with my bare hands
Mountains to sand
Worshipped by the very ancients who see
All that I've created, up from the sea

Meld our minds
Absorb more than I can hide
Felt every emotion combined
Amalgamated, outside of space and time

You don’t even know how long I’ve waited here for you
Track Name: Graveyard Grass
One foot sinking in the graveyard grass
Souls worn thin down to brass tacks
Each breath could well be my last
Pulled into a coffin full of ice

Can't stop sinking with the dead man's float
I catch my words sticking in the back of my throat
Sign the dotted line, that would be all she wrote
Building a coffin just my size

Beat a dead horse to the glue factory
Mausoleum shiver, shiver shaking my knees
Hangman's noose got a hold on me
Got these silver dollars covering my eyes

Is this my final destination nurse?
I can't shake off King Tutankhamun's curse
Turn after turn for the worse
Headed for the grave in the blackest hearse
Here lies...

This is where we're worse for wear
A passing blindness in the glare
My numbers up I'm faced with fate
I'll have a bite and take the bait
The undertaker undertook
A rigamortis frozen look
Pay the piper, pay the price
Rolling Death's final dice

In the gallows evermore
Refrigerating in the morgue
Executioner's metal axe
Empty eyes behind a mask
Rotting in the satin red
Roadkill possum playing dead
Reaper points and pulls me close
A poison pill and final dose
Track Name: Time for Such a Word
There's no time for such a word
There's no time for such a word
There's no time to sleep or eat or drink
But we need to do it anyway
There's no time to be born, or live or die
It always ends the same
And if you can't find the time
The time will find you

There's no time to listen too
There's no time to listen too
There's no time to blink or breathe or think
But we do it anyway
There's no time to relax, fill the tank with gas
It always end the same
And if you can't find the time
The time will find you
Track Name: The Last Syllable of Recorded Time
I have dotted every ‘i’
And we have crossed under every streetlamp
Till the last syllable of recorded time
If you're still listening

When it comes down to it
What did you expect?
When it comes down to it
Did you think I could forget?
About you

I am caught up in your eyes
And we have kissed under every streetlamp
Till the last syllable of recorded time
And it's worth listening

When it comes down to it
What do we really expect?
When it comes down to it
Did you think we'd just forget?
About each other
Track Name: Brief Candle
Brief candle of mine
The sun is away
And as I think about the day
Each thought slowly fades away from me

Brief candle of mine
The moon's blushing face
Silently flickers in the waves
Each thought disappears as the next takes it's place

You don't have to stay here with me
I know, I want to stay here with you

I saw your face in this photograph
I swear by polygraph, I feel this way
I see your face and it reminds me that
That it doesn't have
To be this way

Until another day
I don't even mind the gray
I'll take the love, you remind me of
Until another day
Track Name: Yesterday
Yesterday's worries have decided to bleed into today
Maybe tomorrow will decide that it should fade away

And I thought about you all the time, all the time
You never thought about me anytime
I never thought that it would last but now I hope you can see

Last night's troubles have decided to return this evening
Maybe tonight I can get rid of them permanently

Yesteryear's troubles have decided to rear their ugly heads
Now I am feeling like I should have just stayed at home in bed

And I thought about you day and night, day and night
You never thought about me anytime
You had it set that it wouldn't last but soon I hope you'll see

That all the times you told me "No, I'm not the hurtin’ kind"
That everyday it happens, still you're always on my mind
And every time you tell me no, you'll have to wait in line
But we both know its happened before and this won't be the last time

This is the last time that you're ever gonna hear from me
Sure I've felt worse but this one really got to me

And I thought about you all the time, all the time
You never thought about me anytime
I never thought that it would last but now I hope you can see

Yesterday's worries are almost over
Yesterday's worries are over your shoulder
