Track Name: Noise Pollution
So long, it’s gone apart at the seams
Sink in the glow of brighter screens
Plugging into the houseplant leaves
Out your front door for bigger things

Glass, tilted glass, pulls us close
Our first step into a larger world

The background’s gone, we fade to black
We’re just humans on a painted set
Follow along the faded the lines
Moving in place through space in time

There’s nothing quite like feeling dead
Paint the doors and ceiling red
Track Name: Tonight Is the Night
Tonight is the night that I once told you
Tonight is the night that I will hold you
Tonight is the night that will wash over us
Because tonight, you’re here in my arms

Tonight is the night that I will love you
Tonight is the night that I will tell you
Tonight is the night that’s been unfolding for so long
But tonight, I’m here in your arms

Tonight is the night that I’ve been waiting for
Tonight is the night that we've been praying for
Tonight is the night that you’ve been pacing the floor
And tonight I wanna make it alive

Tonight is the night if the weather permits
Tonight is the night when the clock strikes ten
Tonight is the night to forever change our lives
But tonight I could die with a smile
Track Name: Is It Turning out the Same for Us?
Every day it's a game
I've been thinking of another way to tell you how I feel
It's not that the sun is coming up for us
It just feels like it may

Another day and things have changed
I'm still thinking of another way but maybe it's just me
Is the sun starting to go down on us?
I really need you to stay

Is it turning out, turning out the same for us?
Ashes, dust to dust
Is it turning out, turning out the same for us?
Ashes, dust to dust
Who knows now?

Another day and things have changed
Has everything we had gone down the drain? I thought we had it made
Is the sun starting to go out on us?
It really feels like it may

Is it turning out, turning out the same for us?
Ashes, dust to dust
Is it turning out, turning out the same for us?
Ashes, dust to dust
Who knows now?
Track Name: (I Guess) I Feel Alright
Be careful what you wish for
You might get what you deserve

I look like an ordinary person
Just chewing the scenery
I'm a momentary diversion
Caught in the machinery

I guess I feel alright
I guess I feel alright

I'm walking in broad daylight
Without an inch of skin showing
Covered up like Marlon Brando
In ‘The Island of Dr. Moreau’
Slathered in zinc oxide
And white as a beach party ghost

I guess I feel alright
I guess I feel alright
Track Name: The New Dissolve
I’m a world away
The film is all scratched and worn
I suck the life out of a crowded room

You belong in the new dissolve
You revolve in the new dissolve
You resolve in the new dissolve
You belong in the new dissolve

The lights melt the sound
The notes drip down the wall
I turn the lights down low
A candle’s flame

You belong in the new dissolve
You revolve in the new dissolve
You resolve in the new dissolve
You belong in the new dissolve
Track Name: Don't Fret
If I’d have stayed
Between a rock and a hard place
I’d have never found
This look upon your face

If I would have got
Caught up in the chase
I’d have never known
Things could be this way

If I’d known
You need me
God only knows
If you’d be near me

Don’t fret
Don’t fret

If I’m afraid
Of the locket of your face
I can’t look now
At the weight that hangs

If I would have got
Caught up in the chase
I’d have never known
Things could be this way

If I’d known
You need me
God only knows
If you’d be near me

Don’t fret
Don’t fret
Track Name: Give Me a Sign
Give me a sign
And let me know
Give me a sign
To let me go

I was on the dark side of your dreams
Trying to find a light to get back home

I know why you don't really know me
I’m giving up the ghost to head back home

Give me a sign
If I’m on the right path
Give me a sign
And I’ll do the math

I was on the dark side of your dreams
Trying to find a light to get back home

I know why you don't really know me
I’m giving up the ghost to head back home

I was on the seams of reality
Trying to find a light to get back home

I know why you don't really know me
I’m giving up the ghost to head back home
Track Name: Stuck in My Head
Thinking in circles
I’m stuck in my head
Lab rat in a maze
I’m stuck in my head

You know I want out
You know I need out
I’m stuck in my head

The only way out
Is a long way down
I’m stuck in my head

I’ll be here til (when?)
Against my will (then)
I’m stuck in my head

Flickering flame
A tiny spark
I’m stuck in my head

Telephone ringtone
Is stuck in my head
TV commercial
Is stuck in my head

I think I have it
I think I’ve got it
It’s stuck in my head

I think I want it
I think I need it
It’s stuck in my head

Click to buy more
Wait by the door
It’s stuck in my head

Improve my life
With every size
It’s stuck in my head

I think I love you
I’m dreaming of you
You’re stuck in my head

A sight for sore eyes
Make me feel alright
You’re stuck in my head

Be by your side (when)
Every night (then)
You’re stuck in my head

Flickering flame
A tiny spark
You’re stuck in my head

Stuck in my head
Stuck in my head
Stuck in my head
Stuck in my head
Track Name: Spring Is Here Again
Spring is here again
Turnaround it's new
I feel it in the air
All that's missing is you

I changed the clocks
And you weren't there
We lost time
It's all blue skies
But not my eyes
Not this time

Remember one year ago?
It seems those feelings are gone
It's getting hard to hold you
When you're not holding on

In like the lamb you were
Out as the lion you came
It's getting hard to hold you
When you don't feel the same

Set back the clocks
Turn back time
To the photographs
Hard to believe
That those still frames
Were real life

Is this all that I am saying?
I can't stand because I’m swaying
I can't say if it's worth saving
Until Spring is here again

Is this worth the price I’m paying
Find another road worth paving
I can't say if this is failing
Until spring is here again

Cut me out of all your photographs
Like there’s a hole in your heart
Try as you might you can't ignore the past
There’s still a hole in your heart
We've come too far
Track Name: In My Arms
Through winters cold and summers long
You told me you'd always be in my arms

The time always comes to say goodbye
When things went wrong we made them right
But now that it's over and I must reflect
Every season changes

You told me you would be here in my arms
You told me you would be here in my arms

The time always comes to say goodbye
When things went wrong we made them right
But now that it's over and I must reflect
Every season changes

You told me you would be here in my arms
You told me you would be here in my arms
