Track Name: Kingsbury
I would never let her see what had just passed before these eyes. Blanket memories engulf everything I thought to disguise. Aw, not this again. The room starts to spin. Oh, God...I swear I’m here. I’ll awake each day with the stars to thank. Oh, God...I swear I’m here. Nothing else ever really mattered. This drink tastes like motions passed. My dreams: everything she guessed. Can’t say I would take it back, but these dreams crumble like the rest. Let’s just say I went away. The world would spin and I could smile again. And I could smile again. Or she could smile again.
Track Name: Draw
We all leave. Oh, yes we do. Yes we do. I'm sorry to call so late. I love talking to your machine, I guess. She sounds like you but lets me do all the talking. I guess that's all there ever was but I miss it so much. I try to let it go. We all leave. We keep crawling towards that same white tunnel our forefathers left us. We are here. And I guess I have hurt you enough for one night. But there is just one end in sight. We've clung to this with all our life. I'm almost mad you didn't answer. Then it hits like news of cancer. Oh… We're not talking because you care. We are here. We are here. We are here. We are here. No one's here.
Track Name: Feb 3, 1949
I remember breaking all the rules. I remember promising that we would stay this young for years. I remember how we met at school. I remember those eye lashes and how I would not fall for them. How I was wrong. I’d never needed anyone before I met her. I won’t forget her. I swear. Flash forward: 5:18. I am at a crime scene. Oh, God. When did I get here? Everything’s been painted red. In all my years I’ve never seen this kind of violence. We are born and then left alone to fend. So every single day I’ve washed it all away. Something struck me cold when I was four years old. Good men turn away every single day. I once believed in all those things you’d expect from a badge like me. But now my eyes are open. And all the bad fortune of these men is theirs alone tonight. But I won’t, no, I won’t turn away. I’ve got too much pride in me. But I won’t, no, I won’t turn away. And I would trade it all for sleep. I just want to sleep.
Track Name: Grievances
She always listened close to my old verbose breaking down of everything. This taste of regret I can’t seem to forget - nothing one more drink won’t cure. Whoa - as it permeates - whoa - as I start to think if - whoa - she could never know that - whoa - well, it’s all come crashing down. Hey! This is when it really gets interesting! I guess I’ve found my call. She’s soaked in alcohol. And this is when I really start to know me! Oh no, I will not call. Let's call this a draw. And I won’t ever let her fall in. She’ll start to forget all the time we spent once she’s with another man. She’ll always listen close to his throat as it breathes out all his thoughts. Hey! This is when it really gets interesting! I guess I’ve found my call. She’s soaked in alcohol. And I will whisper on the breeze. And I won't ever let her fall in.
Track Name: Patterns & Notions
Scattered sheets across the floor. Night clerk says you checked in the night before. But nothing matters anyways, so who the hell was he to say how any one should spend his time if every living thing must die? I didn’t ask. And I don’t care. And I can’t see you’re wishing me away. I can scarcely believe that you’ve done everything to hide motive from me. And I can’t tell you now. I want to just say I could sail away from everything you mean with just one more drink. And I can’t sleep for days. I’ve touched a distilled haze. It’s enough to find the floor. I awake. Concrete. Dreams of you and me. I can’t shake, shake, shake you out. I can’t shake you. I can scarcely believe that you’ve done everything to hide motive from me. And I can’t tell you now. I want to just say I could sail away from everything you mean with just one more. I can’t see out of my own eyes. All these streets so narrow. I can see my breath tonight. And I will find you.
Track Name: Life, the Universe and Everything
Downtown there’s a café like you see in every movie. There’s a waitress floating towards me with curls in her hair. And she knows that I come here everyday to see her. She does not seem at all scared. I’m saving the ashes while boarding the train. I’m waving goodbye to my friends and my name. “He’s gone,” they’ll say. The lights will all dim as the passengers sleep. I’ll slip out the sidecar and fall to the streets. “He’s gone,” they’ll say. Now she’s tearing down the wall I have worked to build up this tall. And she’s laughing at all of my quips. But I know that I’m leaving in half an hour. And nothing could hurt worse than this. I’m crumpled up now but without disdain. I’m coming back soon with a new name. Won’t know me by the way I walk in. One of these days we can talk about it. How could she notice that I am not the same as I’ve always been? And I just keep waking up older than I was the day before. And if nothing can stop the passage of time, what can I do on this city’s dime? Fleeting. It is. I saw the ocean for the first time when these were newborn eyes.
Track Name: Youth In Asia
I could take take take you on a holiday. We could dance all along the shores of Spain. Everyone would see us and know our false names, never knowing that we were celebrities where we come from. We carry a disease. You'd never know. They'd share their wine with us. Maybe we'd drink too much, but they'd never know that these Americans died underneath the sheets that night. I could never grow apart from you. You might never leave. We'll believe in the songs we're singing as the flowers start to bloom. I guess you bared your heart in Tokyo. I guess you really let me know. This has been on too long. You follow your own song. There's no one. There's no one. There's someone. There's someone else. I could never grow apart from you. You might never leave. We'll believe in the songs we're singing as the flowers start to bloom. You keep your friends close so you can reach their throats. And I should wake up. Yes, I should wake up again.
Track Name: The Difference
And every single year I spend in this god forsaken city compounds my hate for snow. And as I walked this beat those years I know every step and every window. You’ve got to go. And as I push through the debris – absolute certainty! I know what your next move will be. It will be on this eve when you and I shall finally meet. I hope you are waiting for me. Are you? Are you waiting for me? Beneath this old man’s physique I am a younger self who needs to be needed. If you said to me, “Hey, let’s go.” I would go. Should I go? If you let me down what would I say? I see the grey in you and me. They say one day that the sun will burn it’s last and everything we know will cease to exist. But I know myself this time. Years spent, no matter. I’m coming clean with you.
Track Name: Formerly Titled
I guess you could say you’d had enough. I guess you could say that’s not enough justification for your actions. Your number goes on the napkin. He will take you home tonight. And I won’t mind. No, how could I? I am all too late. You just need to feel the touch of someone who is not dying at your hand. I see that he has a shitty place near my favorite haunts. I see a happiness on your face for which I cannot cope. How could you just close your eyes to beauty that abounds? I suppose you could ask of me that same question. He will take you home tonight. And I won’t mind. No, how could I? I am all too late. You just need to feel the touch of someone who is not dying at your hand. And he will take you home and I will go home alone and you will never know his name.
Track Name: I'm Sorry But I Know
It’s taken me too long but I know you now. Had you in Charlotte but you got away somehow. And I can’t pretend to not know why you did it. As I walk through the falling snow I know that we’re all alone. If everything you need is everything you said don’t think I won’t think twice. You’ve got your cross to bear. I guess that I’ve got mine. I’ve torn down every single wall. But you couldn't care and I wouldn’t dare to ask this of my very best friends. For all their broken ways and all their worst days, these are my people. I am one of them. I have to stay with them. Just one more song to go. You’ve waited, oh, for a hero, but he wouldn’t come for you. Now all the cards are down. I’ve played my part just right. You don’t see me, but I am here for you. I’m sorry, I’m sorry I know that I am here for you. It does matter. Where will you go when this is all done, my sweet?
Track Name: Brookston Turbines
While I know that you have to flee, every breath inside of me… It takes it’s time shredding up my nerves and all its just deserves. Who has bid his time? But it has led me here to you. And every single fucking clue, it draws me deeper in. And I, I can’t let it go. I can’t let you go again. Not again. I have found the last thing that I need to know that you would not concede to breaking any of your rules all about not living just for you. I am climbing up the stairs. My gun is drawn for you. You do not hear me. I am breaking down the… “Who are you?” “Who am I?”
