Track Name: Fire Flies
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
Track Name: Glittered 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
Track Name: Monkey
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
Track Name: What You Will
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?
Track Name: After Dark
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
Track Name: City Lights
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)?
Track Name: The Prairie Loop
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)
Track Name: Put Out The Lights
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
Track Name: Ender (GRAVITY IS YR FRIEND)
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
Track Name: Any More
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
