Fire Flies 08:59
it smells like summer is over and the autumn is falling in my window's open something cold is blowing in and i am so goddamn tired streetlights shine like fire flies aflight marching with the wind the road rolls over the bones of my kin what the hell happened to them? we float below the amber glow of phantom limbs akimbo in the acts of ever after riven no one speaks cos no one listens but i hear you wallowing clutch regret like a letter unsent the ticking pounds ears with weight they cannot take summer stars fall on the autumn sky cut through the night hand in hand run to the setting sun outshine the dawn aftermath aft collapse she's going down aftertaste need escape let's take this town and drown it out

so it seems that these things burn poring over empty urn bleed it out breathe it out twinkle out and now you'll learn empty echoes sing alone with holy ghosts rip it out get it out let it out let it go they're drinking what you're pouring down their throats your sun king dream's drowned in its weight in gold silver cities shake and hum wicker bridges flicker up like kingdom come but i'm glittered out whisper 'round now darling your iron sides are blinding them

Monkey (free) 04:55
from the static rise i'm blown away all these drafted lives remain enemies we're all sitting here sun is sinking in the sky i know there's nothing here if there is a place take the time to stay awhile i know in your weaknees all you need is green when you're sleepless green is all you need we're still sitting here sinking sun beneath the sky i know there's nothing here if there is a place take the time to stay awhile i know in your weaknees all you need is green when you're sleepless green is all you need dance, monkey, dance all we are is kids kicking the air all we are is all in all

what you wait for may not come giving everything to everyone i'm a gentleman who cares what you will will come giving everything to everyone i'm a gentleman who cares taking anything from anyone i'm a gentleman, who cares? giving everything to anyone i'm a genteman who cares taking anything from everyone i'm a gentleman, who cares?

After Dark 03:38
the night's just right to say anything that you'd like to hear it goes down like wine we could both go home alone or stay til the sun comes up on us what did you say to me? i've nothing left to stay to you now not when you seem to know exactly what i'll say to you (it's just no fun, honey) what do you want from me? i've nothing left that i didn't give

City Lights 04:12
stranger say my name let me see your face cos everyone has come to play so place your bets & hedge 'em now lovers lay me down the city lights the road stranger take me home and let me go hold me close and let me go lovers lay me down in the city lights sober's shaking out let it out right lovers lay me down in the city lights lovers let me down what have you heard? and did you get there first? did you get what you deserve? fuck what you heard. they're just empty words did you get some? did you get it (right)?
7.
steal away out from the crowd mind your head it's getting heavy out see the station, a place to hide watch the colors watch the lights we've seen a lot of things only with horizon in our eyes steal a way out from the scene take your time, it's fine it's what i need see the station, a place to hide watch the colors watch the lights you seen a lot of things but never me we see a lot of things only with horizon in our eyes (it's in your head)
8.
morning's broke and my eyes are hazy these halcyon days of misrememberance and dishonesty... i could lie and say everything is just fine now and i might cos everyone shits when they die put out the light and tell me that everything's fine something's broken my mind is racing down a dead-end road to nowhere just put out my lights
9.
the doors open they're waiting and you're hoping to return home to home can it be the same? are we forever changed? can we be the same? the old man's sleeping he's best left to his dreams the soldier's keeping an evil diary can she be the same? she got herself another name can we be the same as we float through space a day is not a day when we float through space

Any More 02:50
you're not ready you're not sure who you are waiting for i am ready and i'm so scared we might remind ourselves who we are i don't know any more i don't know you're not ready you're not sure who you are
