Track Name: Unseen Forces
Our heads are humming and we don't know why
Is this anyway to live, live our lives?

It’s too much to ask and lay and shut our tired eyes
It should be so easy just to make things right

Unseen forces, apocalyptic horses
We wake and we walk
Can we just stretch out in the grass and relax in the dark?

My head is ringing like it's splitting in half
One part for every little thing, and the rest is whatever’s left

It’s too much to ask and lay and close our tired minds
It should be so easy just to do what’s right

Unseen forces, apocalyptic horses
We wake and we walk
Can we just stretch out in the grass and relax in the dark?
Track Name: Electric Touch
They said it in the books I’ve read
But it would never happen to you
Then, when every horse is beat down dead
The cover you never judged is overdue

Don’t hold your breath
The manual says
Don’t make mistakes
Your little glass heart will break

They’ve got you by the spine
In the corner of a dusty square
And they, say even when the canvas tears
Your cardboard bones show through

Don’t hold your breath
The manual says
Don’t make mistakes
Your little glass heart will break

The hair on the back of your neck stands up
It’s the electric touch
Every book I’ve read never said
It would mean this much

We all know how this story ends
But after the ever after then what?
Well, let’s open up old wounds again
And rub all the salt in the cuts
Track Name: Looking for the End of the World
I’m looking for the end, the end of the world
In the hurricane’s eye and the tornado’s swirl
This is that song
You were writing all along
Life never really seemed so long
On and on, then its gone

The ice caps melt
We’re stuck in Miami Beach
And I’ve never felt so out of touch or out of reach
These postcards won’t sell themselves
It’s for the girl I’ve loved all along
Who always waltzed into my songs
On and on, then she’s gone

Early warnings, the temperature is warming
Boil over, the sun is getting closer
Bible black predawns
The chem trails in argyle skies
Burning hades red in gargoyle eyes
I guess we didn’t try
Track Name: Say What You Say
Hey it's all way too far
To sail in the water
Fade in the other
Say what you’re gonna say

So say what you’ll say when you say what you’re gonna
Say what you’d say if you’d say what you wanna
Say what you’d say and you say it like you really mean

Hey you called to say it all
It treats you unkindly
And when you finally
Stand on your feet again

You say what you say when you’re back with each other
Say what you’d say when you've had it with your lover
Say what you’d say with the thought of another man

You’re feeling reckless
And the chain around your necklace
Weighs you down

Some words when spoken
Never fix all that is broken
When you’re down

Forget to celebrate
Every smile that you make
Feels like a frown
I’ve had the last of everything

Say what you say what you say if we wanna
Say what we say what we say to each other
Say what you’d say would you say to another minute of your time
Track Name: Sliver of the Sun
The light in your mind
Glows and electrifies
Floating in the sweet sublime
To live on after we die

Look away it’s coming up
A sliver of the sun
Everyday it ends the same
With a sliver of the sun

Remembering the clearest night
The waves of a glowing tide
Floating in the solution we find
Cerebrospinal afterlife

Look away it’s coming up
A sliver of the sun
Everyday it ends the same
With a sliver of the sun

The light in your mind
Glows and electrifies
Floating in the sweet sublime
To live on after we die

Look away it’s coming up
A sliver of the sun
Everyday begins the same
With a sliver of the sun
Track Name: Bad Vibes
I thought I knew you
But I could see right through you
Now I’m feeling the June Gloom
Alright, now I’m through with you

Bad vibes are sneaking in the window
Our lives are forever intertwined
So make up your mind
If I laid down flat on the sidewalk
They’d probably draw a line of chalk around me dead
Wake blushing red

I wish I could quit
Because you know that I’m through with it
And I’ve been dragged through it
So I’ll lay it on thick

I’m sleeping through every morning
Without so much as a warning coming from you
You know it's true
If I laid down flat on the sidewalk
They’d probably draw a line of chalk around me dead
Wake blushing red
Track Name: Soft Glow
In the morning light
I would see you
If I didn’t need you
Then I wouldn’t be with you

I need you to help me understand
But the voice in my head
Won’t take away these plans

In the evening light
I see your soft glow
If I didn’t tell you so
Then you would never know

You never tell me
What I need to hear
So the voice in my heart
Must take away my fears

In the morning light
I would see you
If I didn’t need you
Then I wouldn’t be with you

I need you to help me understand
But the voice in my head
Won’t take away these plans
Track Name: Cherry Black Sunspot
Overtaken by the undertow
The moon is hiding and the tides are low
Cherry black sunspot
Radiation glow
The milky way’s past due
And expiring soon

A rip current ripped from the headlines
Blood relation to The Sunday Times
Read all over in black and white
The solar waves are due
And headed for the moon

King’s Crossing on the Kingdom’s Tide
Switch the panic into overdrive
Just ahead of the comet’s tail
Drowning in satellites
In an ever expanding night
Track Name: Plastic Racket
(Instrumental)
Track Name: My Heart is on Fire
Burn like a cigarette
Until there’s nothing left
These days we need a rest

It’s like our love is up in smoke
You take it as some sort of joke
Just stop and laugh it off

My heart is on fire
My heart is on fire
My heart is on fire
For you

Joke like we never left
And wish each other best
Just keep that sweater vest

It always looked better on you
Anyway
You loved me like no others do
Either way
Just stop and sleep it off

My heart is on fire
My heart is on fire
My heart is on fire
For you
Track Name: Stuck in a Book
I’ve been stuck in a book for oh so very long
Every breath that I took seemed to make it into a song

But every word was wrong
And had been for so long
And every chance I had to make it was gone

I was stuck on a page and couldn’t make it out alone
In so many ways I was reminded of you and now...

If I ever make it out, I’ll eat every last goodbye
We’ll climb together the words and letters
Track Name: Start Again
Where are we heading?
Keep following the setting sun
What are you dreading?
Asbestos ceilings and fluorescent bulbs

The sun is never shining in your mind
Lift the veil that’s covering your eyes

Then we can start again
Then we can start again

Is this a dead end?
Are we doomed to repeat the past?
Let’s keep it steady
There has never been a harder task

The black wings only carry you so far
Until you keep crashing in the same car

Then we can start again
Then we can start again
Track Name: Stuck in a Book (Single Version)
I’ve been stuck in a book
for oh so very long
Every breath that I took
Seemed to make it into a song

But every word is wrong
And has been for so long
And every chance I had to change it is gone

How much is enough?
How deep is your love?

I'm stuck on a page
And couldn’t make it out alone
In so many ways
I am reminded of you and now

If I ever make it out, I’ll eat every last goodbye
We’ll climb together the words and letters

How much is enough?
How deep is your love?
