Track Name: After The Show
After the show, I'm all alone
Singing the blues by myself
You know I went and broke my heart
I only tore it all apart
I can't let a good thing start

Just another bottle or two
And I'll be totally wasted in this chair
I'm in despair
I gotta see you everywhere

I wanted to be
The face that you'd see
When you made eyes across a dance floor
You just can't understand
That I'm just a man
That loves you more than he can explain
Strange this common a crush
Should make me feel lush
Like I should just rush right away
Please let me stay
Gotta rush right away from your heart

Lost in the glow
Didn't even know
How to be myself when I was with you
I dreamt you were a Northern Star
But then I tore the dream apart
I can't let a good thing start

Just another bottle or two
And I'll be totally wasted in this chair
I'm in despair
I gotta see you everywhere

I wanted to be
The face that you'd see
When you made eyes across a dance floor
You just can't understand
That I'm just a man
That loves you more than he can explain
Strange this common a crush
Should make me feel lush
Like I should just rush right away
Please let me stay
Gotta rush right away from your heart

Look into your eyes blows my mind, baby every time I look into your eyes
Look into
Track Name: Fractal
A crumbling parapet between your heart and mine
There is nothing that can stem the poison tide
Baby, you are filled with bile and I am filled with brine
Just waiting to collide
Beneath a broken sky, blue fractals in your eyes
Only half reflect haloed clouds around your mind
On the green line train, breathing steam onto the pane
You would start to sing

If you go, than I go; We go down together
Can't you see that I'm a wreck
My heart is just a mess

In the quiet hour that you would spend with me
Our love was golden sun diffused beneath the trees
But now the aperture has closed like no sun has ever shone
But my tired heart can see
As we drift around in empty airless space
A litany echoes all the words we used to say
A whispering refrain of your haunted name
Baby we are both to blame

If you go, than I go; We go down together
Can't you see that I'm a wreck
My heart is just a mess

It's so hard just to get out of bed somedays
I'm so tired of living in this gray
Is there nothing that can cut through all the haze
But you and me going out in a blaze

If you go, than I go; We go down together
Can't you see that I'm a wreck
My heart is just a mess
Track Name: Vicious Kind (Of Love)
You can try to pretend you don't mind
But girl I know your love is this vicious kind
You're gonna tear me apart limb from limb
Gonna break my heart with your cute little grin

Your love is the vicious kind

All is lost, the ship's gonna sink
All of your love is bringing me to the brink
Hurt ain't the word I'd use to describe
The power of your love, It's the vicious kind
Track Name: Lush
Feeling lush, blue skin, the sea will crush
All of your happy voices singing
Out of touch, making the least of much
Fading into hours like the dust

How do I decide?

Moving on, relating to the dawn
Gold is then scattered all throughout the day
Touch to tongue, paper dissolves the sun
Out of the luminescence she will come

How do I decide?
Track Name: Don't Be Cruel
Don't be cruel, I can't take it anymore
Don't be cruel, to me love
Don't be cruel
Track Name: Oh No!
Melting like a plastic doll inside a sun
You say I'm fine, you shine me on, but then your gone
But nothings worse than love that hurts
It breaks you down
But silly girl, I've up and gone
Who's foolish now?

You give me that "come hither smile"
But I don't want it
You know I don't want it
I can't believe that that's all you think of me
Oh no!

I had it all, I gave it up to sleep in late
I'm fine with that, it's over now
No need to wait

You give me that "come hither smile"
But I don't want it
You know I don't want it
I can't believe that that's all you think of me
Oh no!
Track Name: Eating Sunshine
Eating all the sunshine
Playing tricks on my eyes
Flying through the snowy skies
I'm in love
Body in the bed sheets
Watching all the repeats
I wish I was homebound
I'm in love

I wish I could dance girl
I wish I could change the world
I wish I could end wars
I'm just in love

Heavy like a solid stone
Every since I took the throne
Now I just want to go home
Find me some love
Track Name: Disappear
Trace the sun inside your hand
Circles down until you understand
Let yourself gently float away
watch it leave, forget your name

Maybe something else can make you feel real
But I doubt it dear
All the time I went and wasted wishing someday
that I would be here
Never mind the dark devotion to a notion
that I could see clear
Turn the water into wine to a nickel or a dime
Baby, disappear

Nobody wants to tell you that you're wrong, but you're wrong

Maybe something else can make you feel real
But I doubt it dear
All the time I went and wasted wishing someday
that I would be here
Never mind the dark devotion to a notion
that I could see clear
Turn the water into wine to a nickel or a dime
Baby, disappear
Track Name: I Know Better
I am a cloud close to the ground
I make no sound when you're around
I am a swimmer learning to sink
Find some deep current to cradle me

I know the choice is mine
Happiness is mine to lose or find

Hey, Mr. Sun you cannot run from me forever
Dear Lady Moon, I've played your fool
Now I know better

When I see you I know the truth
When skies turn grey I know you'll stay
When I wake up When I fall asleep
I have no cares, I know you're mine to keep

I know the choice is mine
Happiness is mine to lose or find

Hey, Mr. Sun you cannot run from me forever
Dear Lady Moon, I've played your fool
Now I know better
