Track Name: Stepped Up
Stepped up to my window
The streets aglow
Didn't tell me what to think
My heart to sink

So many places left to go
But your bright eyes were always enough

When it's getting hard to breath
And we're under siege
And the maggots on your brain get the final drain

We'll jump through a prism with the stars
But your bright eyes were always enough

So determined for the two
Well, we'll make it through
Til the spaces left to fill don't matter still

We'll jump through a prism with the stars
But your bright eyes were always enough

Don't you worry late
Live and die the same
Love's a shadow's pain
Stay with me as it fades
Track Name: Man in the Corner
When space is the void
And all these explosions are making contortions
And shrouds of enormous proportions

This man in the corner
He couldn't be sorer
He's got blood on his hands but he puts a foot in his stocking

Well, man, in the morning I cried for you
It's not in the pictures I look into
Ahh tonight

Beautiful baby
His mother saved he
All bundled up but before he was born in the boiler room

When cold gets to winter
The trees are all thinner
The face of the moon is all lit up in a glorious bloom

But, man in the morning
I cried for you
It's not in the pictures
I look into
no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no

Dear, I'd be lonely without you.
Track Name: By the Way
By and by the way
I can't remember what to say now
Breaking all the locks and chains down
Trying to lose the years of pain

Say,
Let's agree
on how to
spend
this precious day

This station's far too long
When conversations all go wrong

Find me in this hole
Covered up with dominos
Down here in this cold
Lock of all the things we know
Trying to leave it all behind

Let's get out of this place
Forfeit the maze
Step down on the gas
Put down the mask
Nahnuhnuhnananah

And if life could always be this true
I'd give it up for a dance with you
And if love could always be this kind
We'd be drunk enough on our peace of mind

Let's get out of this place
Forfeit the maze
Step down on the gas
Put down the mask

Sitting on this happy stone
Dreaming of this happy life
Track Name: Still
You're still comin round
You're still comin round

Your fire all around
Your fire all around

All along

Never losing
Never losing
Never losing
Hope

You're still holding my golden wishes
You're still holding my golden wishes

They came from far away
They came from far away

Still
dreaming
Still
Another night
To take me home
Track Name: Hey, Lonely
They're calling me names
And everyone's lookin at me
They're calling me strange
I sat in the corner

Hey, Lonely
Don't you fall into despair
Hey, Lonely
Write a letter to the stars with me

And open the gate
I hear that the weather looks nice
Run down to the bank
And roll in the dirt there

Hey, Lonely, don't you fall into despair
Hey, Lonely, write a letter to the stars with me

Oh, in this infinite space
sleep with a smile on your face

Oo oh no

Oh oooh la loo loo laa
Track Name: Sunday Drive
Let's scare the birds away
On a Sunday
Does it boggle my brain
Skeleton mane?

And I'm sure that we will
I'm sure that we can
And I'm sure that we will

Find it

And I will race you down

Lyin in the stars in the sky
I really don't understand
Lyin in the stars in the sky
I really don't understand

La, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la
Track Name: The Beat was Burnt
At the old
Station
Ticket had
I run

But she made sure
The beat was burnt

Got my seat
Row three
Conductor winks
At me

But she made sure
The beat was burnt

It's bedtime now
On this train
Heading towards
The sleeping car

And say goodnight
With a knife so big

It hurts, it hurts, it hurts
Track Name: Doo Wop
Hello, My Dear,

What brings you here to me?
After all these years, what brings you here today?

Learning to learn
Learning to burn
Learning to live as one

Hello, My Dear,

What brings you here to me?

Only time may tell
Un-break your spell
Learning to live as one

Ahhh
Ahhhhh
