Track Name: Tired Friends
Dear tired friends
Where did everything go wrong?
Pull up a chair
Around the table in the back room

Dear tired friends
You’re under the influence of a strange life
Pull up a chair
Around the table in the back room

One chance / Can’t breathe
One life / All noise
Two time / Can’t breathe
Too late / All noise

Was it just a game?
Such a lonely streak
With the politics of your dissonance
Fraudulent companionship

And I think about
All that wasted time
So much wasted time
Track Name: Wish No Harm
I bet you're sick to death of hearing my name
At all the places where you don't belong

“No harm. I wish you no harm”

I keep my memories in the dark
Far away from fingertips
And the old voices inside my head
Reaching out for me
But no one's there
No one's there

“No harm. I wish you no harm”

When you think back on your life
Will you be proud of what you've done?
The trail of bread crumb lies
Left for no one there to follow

And the streets are so cold
And the cars pass by
Always saying that you're sorry
You meant me no harm
So you say
Track Name: Another Fallen Petal
Let your thoughts fall on top of me
Awake but dreaming of a better life

Where do kids go
When they grow older?

“Don’t ever come back”
To nothing
To the past
Forget what’s gone away
It’s in a different time

But you affect me
And without that where are we?

Where do kids go
When they grow older?
Locked in stories
That never have happy endings

Wind through a courtyard
And the leaves shake
Exist who you are

Another fallen petal
That no one watches over
Another fallen petal
That no one watches over
And that is you
In a different time
In a different time
Track Name: Drinking Yourself To Sleep
Do you recognize the feeling
Of being up for days?
Do you recognize the feeling
Of forcing yourself to sleep?

Like a branch dizzy in the wind
Like nothing at all dizzy in the wind

Do you recognize the feeling
Of being up for days?
Do you recognize the feeling
Of drinking yourself to sleep?

Like a branch dizzy in the wind
Like nothing at all dizzy in the wind
Track Name: Sunglass
In some eyes we will be to blame
For those that can’t let go
They’ll stay awake at night
You and I will meet in our dreams
Laugh the night away
Should’ve been more memories to make
More life to shake and break

Lay there sunglass
Hey there sunglass
Lay there now and rest

Our memories we will always have
With sarcasm and cold beer
Tripping down stairs, crashing down doors
What do you say there, sunglass?
Some say you were a dark cloud
Rain or shine, hot and cold
In some eyes we’ll be to blame

Laugh the night away
Laughing the night away
Laughing

Lay there sunglass
Lay there sunglass
Lay there now and rest
Track Name: Planet Of Me
Happy new year
Happy times
Keep on laughing
Keep on dancing
Planet of one
Planet of me
All around you
What’s it all about?

Check your face
It’s not the same
Check the clock
It’s halfway over
Spinning through life
With my eyes closed
Coming down
Track Name: Sliding Under Cars
So much time we waste
Doing nothing at all
So much love we waste
Replacing it with fear

Like it even matters
If all my problems
Burn and fail to explode
‘Cause somewhere on the side of the road
Something’s overturned
And they don’t ever get up and walk away
Don’t ever get up and walk away

I can’t help myself to want to leave
I can’t help myself to want to leave this place

Every day a little more is gone from my memory
Track Name: Fireflies
The streets are filled with fireflies
Time to go inside
Time to go inside

Your dreams are filled with what you fear
Time to go inside
Time to go inside

Let’s take a walk around the block
Everyone’s a stranger
And everyone’s a lie

Can’t you see what’s in your way?
Don’t you see what takes its place?
Track Name: 1987
Thirteen reasons to run back home
And hide before girls
And before passion I just sat and waited
Before any problems

I think we all lost something back then
The car door closed behind the jukebox
Life it went by
Before it ended it was already gone
Before it ended it was already in the past
1987

We could run through the alley
Thirteen steps back
We can’t crawl under the fence
And make it all go away
1987

They tell me someone was left behind
Maybe the old me or just an old friend
How come it’s so many years
And I’m twice as old today?
I haven’t given up on the past
Or the future is a mystery
1987

We could run through the alley
Thirteen steps back
We can’t crawl under the fence
And make it all go away
Make it all go away
Track Name: Falling
Her hair was the color of seaweed
His little mermaid
Dreamt about swimming
The house was lonely
Cracked open with a wedge of light
And sips of gin
She nods her head but eyes weren’t in

I’ll give you a call tonight
Turn the snow white pages
Through the canopy of trees

Come sit down
How have you been?
I used to be so scared
To go so high

Falling
Falling
Falling
Falling…
