Track Name: NOW
I never thought you'd learn to walk,
I never thought I'd hear you talk at me
I never thought you'd be so cold,
you never seemed to hear a word of what I said
Hear me now
I never thought you'd learn to talk,
I never thought I'd see you walk on me

Pretty words so kind and old, tossed around, nothing's solved
See those friends drifting by, looking back,
don't ask why
They might just tell you
Bitter was all the rage,
said nothing ever changes for you
Well, how about now?
Track Name: THE LIGHTS ABOVE
Of course, there wasn't much before
and yet I hoped you'd stay for more
A beam of lights takes aim at me,
dark silhouettes is all I see
I sit and wait for just one thing,
there's no more magic in our screen
And yet I still sing

In the end, you know, it's really funny
Life is good and the day outside is sunny

My words are rolling as I watch,
I think I'm falling
Every frame you bring upon me
turns my story upside down
Looking at the graying vision of a heartache
that's messing with my mind
Breaking through the clouds above
the crowds that watch in
(I hear the crowds, adhere the genius)
Nino Rota's grand orchestra's melting down my soul
For a moment I did believe the score

In the end, you know, it's really funny
Today's good, but tomorrow's really shiny

And now it's all up for a trim,
the night no longer brings my dream
Then the lights above go dim

In the end, you know, it's really funny
Knowing that it's all simply for the money
Track Name: THEY GOT THE MESSAGE WRONG
The show is over, time to go,
are people coming after all?
The night is turning, burning red, daring mad,
or so the music said

The night is full of sound
that comes from higher ground
The streets are paved with rain,
they'll open up again
People forming lines for late night dreams and wine
They're clinging to a song,
they got the message wrong
Somehow

It's time to stir the winds of war,
I saw it coming all along
You changed your heart and changed your head
You never were my friend, or so the music said

Breaking away to see what you do to me
On and on, letting it go

The night is full of sounds and lights
that wash the ground
Get out and feel the rain, happiness and coffee stains
People forming lines for late-night dreams and wine
They're clinging to my song,
thank god they got the message wrong
Track Name: KINGDOMS & ARMIES
Cheap glass of wine, it's twilight and hazy
Time chiming by, tired and lazy
Shadows make flight in the hall when suddenly
You look up

Gray clouds sway kindly and oddly hang from your wall
Kingdoms and armies are finally out of control

Time and again the bells are calling, time and again they sing
Heavens and hell are waiting for you
Track Name: SOMEONE TO HATE
I hear so much is going on,
they still insist and play her song
Your heart and your voice out of tune
I hope to see you soon

Nothing left unsaid, those crowds will think us mad
We go and grow bored every time
Meaning's so hard to find

I've seen your faults giving signs, \
all your soldiers broke the line
Your land and voice in disuse,
while others get the spoils you cough an excuse

So I built many temples and brought them all down
Promised the world and turned it around
I've trembled in love and shuddered in fear
The streets gotten darker but the way became clear
Call it religion or leftover fate
But all I need is someone to hate

Will you let me down?
Track Name: GLACIER EYES
Never heard a word he said
Never-mind, I've lost my head
Every dream I ever had
Fireflies around my bed

Take a look around

Icy waters straight ahead
Glacier eyes and typing hands
All the anxious light he sheds
Fireflies around my bed

No one else makes a sound

I never caught his smile, never got his smile
Caustic all the while and always sad
Like fireflies around my bed

Do you really think he minds
or are we just flying blind?
Track Name: THE EDGE
How many people are lining for your show?
How many follow the charts?
The world's a nonstop race backwards,
don't you know?
You just refuse to play your part

Meaningful suburban life, is all that I ask for you
Meaningful suburban life, is all that I want for you
Track Name: JUST ANOTHER DAY
Just another day
You wait for me
Put the cattle on, get the coffee for the run
Make sure you're on time,
making sure this line's a rhyme

The time we spent, you're bound to see
Notes are fixed, this new mix is about you
Track Name: FLOWERS & ELECTRIC SHOCKS
I was walking by, looking to the sky,
never knew that I could trash you so easily
Here I am again, checking on my brain,
playing awful games with my own tired history
And hey, this isn't me anymore
Who are you? I know I've seen you here before

All your stars and old toys
and everything you kept in stock
Just get me books and loud noises,
flowers and electric shocks

A monster's growing old, speakers growing bold,
I think I might have taken here the wrongest road
Hey, it isn't me you're looking at my friend
I lost my mind, I lost my king, I lost my land

I think I'll let you go, feels so
Insignificant
