Track Name: Knock Yrself Out
I remember going to sleep
Back when I thought that we should keep
Making everyone join the band
Taking over all of the land
Back then I thought we were the best
Soaring over all of the rest
Now I know we're going to find
No more comfort in going blind

I know you want to be alone
Alone

I want another way
I want you all to know
I want another way

I remember waking up when
I thought everyone was a dream
Playing out before both my eyes
I thought everyone was a lie
Thought I met you, we'd had a time
Guess I had someone else in mind
They was someone that you don't know
And that's final, because I said so

So want you to know
Want you to know
No no
Everyone is slipping away

I want another way
I want you all to know
I want another way

So want you to know
Want you to know
No no
Everyone is slipping away

I got another way
I want you all to know
I got another way
Want you all to know!
Track Name: The Beatless
No one I know
Knows where to go
No one I see
Will listen to me
No one around
Hear not a sound

Soon you will see
How to be free
I'm right at home
Won't you be the same?
Won't you be the same?
Won't you be the same?
Won't you be the same?

No one down here
Thinks very clear
Nobody tries
To open their eyes
No one but me

Soon you will see
How to be free
I'm right at home
Won't you be the same?
Won't you be the same?
Won't you be the same?
Won't you be the same?

Everyone's fine
Caught in a lie
Everyone's sure
They've the cure
Everyone's head
Is filled up, instead

Soon you will see
How to be free
I'm right at home
Won't you be the same?
Won't you be the same?
Won't you be the same?
Track Name: Holy Shit
I've stayed the weekend for the last time
I am the meaning of a fine wine

Ooh I want you here with me
But I can't stop thinking rationally

I can't believe you went behind mine
It's a deal, but it's a fine line

Ooh I want you here with me
But I can't stop thinking rationally

I'm stuck in a well
I'm going to Hell
I really don't mind
But I'm sure you can tell
I'm stuck in a hole
I'm out of control
I know you don't care
But I know it's the goal

I've stayed the weekend for the last time
I am the meaning of a fine wine

Ooh I want you here with me
Ooh I want you here with me
Ooh I want you here with me
But I can't stop thinking rationally
Track Name: You've Ruined Me
She's a liar
You breathe fire
I can't do this again
Getting higher
No desire
I can see it's the end

So don't choke on your flame
Though I hope that you do
You'll get all the things that are coming to you
You burn like a match house
This isn't one that you should pursue

So go back where you came from
You're not welcome here
We're sick of the way you're instilling your fear
Make without haste 'cause you know what to do
I'll see you again when I'm coming for you

We'll admire
Till you tire
I'm not there to contend
Show for hire
You're beside her
I can see it's the end

So don't choke on your flame
Though I hope that you would
You mucked it all up worse that we knew you could
You sunk like an anchor
The feeling is well understood

So go back where you came from
You're not welcome here
We're sick of the way you're instilling your fear
Make without haste 'cause you know what to do
I'll see you again when I'm coming for you
Track Name: The Sunshine Factory
I can't stop dreaming about your sparrow
I think he knew it along
By now you've already shot your arrow
I don't think it's going too far
It's going back where you belong

Don't hide your nectar, dear Apollo
I think there's some to go along
I do believe that you were born to follow
I don't think you're going too far
You're going back where you belong

I can't explain my hesitation
I swear I wasn't gone for long
When I contain my revelation
I don't think I'm going too far
I'm going back where I back where I belong

You can't help your state of emotion
You can't hide your state of devotion
You know how to start a commotion
You do it but you don't even try
Track Name: Galaxy Complete! vs. The Hammock Coincidence
We carry on though it’s not very clear
What we could possibility be doing here

Though we only know what
Our eyes are spying
We roaming slowly
The end, we’re dying

Frequently I wonder hat it would mean
See black and white, or a balance between

When the wait was over
We felt like hiding
With the spheres in danger
Of colliding
The answer left us
Torn
And scorn
Reborn

Who will save me?

If it turns out we’re the final frontier
Then we will fine’ly have nothing to fear

When the world was over
It smelled liked diamonds
But before the shore on
Tiny islands
We soar and soar to
Lonely heights
Before we’re filled with
Scorn
And we’re torn
And we mourn
Then reborn
And we’re torn
Scorn
And we mourn
Then reborn
Track Name: Elevator Machine Room
There's a man who lives far away from here
He survives on coal & the taste of fear
And he rode his bike through the orange sea
To the land of sheer opportunity
There's a girl who stays in a house of glass
She's been gone for long since the market crash
And she sailed by air to the island tree
Cuz she craved a taste of a moon to be

You and I don't have to try
We can buy this town and stay here for a while

There's a local chap who just had to say,
"Every single one gets returned today"
And he sulked about and he moped around
Till he hopped the wall and he left this town
And the man who lives far away from here
Left his room at night just to have a beer
And he liked the taste but he loved the thrill
So he wrote his name on a dollar bill

You and I don't have to try
We can buy this town and stay here for a while
But it's not the same
No it's not the same
I can only guess that what caused this mess
Is the fact that we're apart
Track Name: Let's All Get Carried Away
I never wished I wasn't born in Maine
I'd only hoped it was a little hotter
But I don't care about the cold these days
To mope about it would just be a bother

They say I'm right, to go about it this way
I take my time, I'm never lonely or gray
The world flys by, it's only a play
Happening today

I often wish that I had moved around
Instead of nothing more than staying idle
But I don't think about what might've been
I only focus on the true and vital

They say I'm right, to go about it this way
I take my time, I'm never lonely or gray
The world flys by, it's only a play
Happening today, let's get away
What do you say?

They say I'm right, to go about it this way
I take my time, I'm never lonely or gray
The world flys by, it's only a play
Happening today
It's only a play, happening today
Let's get away, what do you say?
It's only a play, happening today
Let's get away, what do you say?

Ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba ba ba
Ba ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba ba
Track Name: She's Not There
Well no one told me about her
The way she lied
Well no one told me about her
Many people cried

It's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know, why should I care
Please don't bother trying to find her
She's not there

Let me tell you 'bout the way she looks
The way she acts and the color of her hair
Her voice is soft & bright
But she's not there at night
No she's not there

Well no one told me about her
What could I do?
Well no one told me about her
But they all knew

It's too late to say you're sorry
How would I know, why should I care
Please don't bother trying to find her
She's not there

Let me tell you 'bout the way she looks
The way she acts and the color of her hair
Her voice is soft & bright
But she's not there at night
No she's not there
Track Name: Kalifornien
get down & move to the pines
and listen up to The Signs
we took the long way for sure
and now we're late for the door
we fell in love with the queen
yeah if you know what i mean
it was the first time we tried
to bad we're empty inside

careful of the peel
sleep behind the wheel
say what you feel
keep what you steal
what you feel

another crushing defeat
we really knew we was beat
they tried to sell us some wine
but we was already fine
they tried to take them away
they knew that no one could stay
we wandered off on our own
we know that nowhere is home

careful of the peel
sleep behind the wheel
say what you feel
keep what you steal
what you feel

as we was nearing the end
the tunnel started to bend
if i could maybe confide
i've found a place i can hide
there ain't no reason for greed
we've everything that we need
up to the rafters we go
so we can see to below
Track Name: Noctilucent
Don't you worry, I'm always here
Count on me to relax your fear
First impressions this time around
Just like last time, wait for the frown

We are in for
Things we can't foresee

You come running back like a louse
Quickly barging out of the house
It's not working this time around
It's the last time you lay it down

We are not alone

Hand you the cane
Run through the rain
Until you feel
Helpless again
