Track Name: Dreaming
Can you go it on your own?
Will you make it all alone?
Are you saving up?

Dreaming while you're stoned
Pawning all you've owned
Can you save enough?

Sleeping while you're dreaming
Dreaming all your nightmares away
Drowning while you're breathing
Breathing in and fading away

Tethered to your phone
Living on a loan
Is it safe enough?

Waiting for your throne
Believing you're the only one
Who's game enough

Sleeping while you're dreaming
Dreaming all your nightmares away
Drowning while you're breathing
Breathing in and fading away

Sleeping while you're dreaming
Dreaming all your nightmares away
Drowning while you're breathing
Breathing in and fading away
Track Name: Capsized
I'm caught, muted in a freeze-frame
Shut, zippered in a suitcase
Turns out everything was all for nothing
Capsized, underwater escape
In the vise of a seascape
No matter, whatever I choose

Waylaid, battered every which way
My progress erased
I see everything is come to nothing
Locked down, boarded up and delayed
Stopped, just another cliché
No matter, whatever I do

We rush into to the heavenly light
Wish away the sweetest of days
We hunger through the joys of our lives
One day we wonder, “When did it all go away?”

Tapped out, scraping through the creases
Cash economy at loose ends
My due diligence is all for nothing
Sky fall, solar threat increases
Cracked ecology weakens
No matter, whatever I do

We rush into to the heavenly light
Wish away the sweetest of days
We hunger through the joys of our lives
One day we wonder, “When did it all go away?”

We groan into the glorious night
Long away the stars for the day
We suffer through the dearest of times
One day we wonder, “When did it all go away?”
Track Name: Spanky New Shoes
I'm waiting for the sound of a record man
to spin into my brain

I'm waiting for the sound of a record
In my veins
Track Name: When the Lights Go Down
You'll believe when the breezes turn to thunder
You'll believe when the lights go down
You'll believe when the lines are pulled asunder
You'll believe when faith runs out

If you run away
Your misery will turn to shame
If you run away
Blow a kiss to me
And if you turn away
Your sympathy will turn to blame
If you turn away
Don't wait for me
Don’t wait for me

You will see when the hunger comes a-callin'
You will see in the deep gray sky
You will see when the birds start to fallin'
You will see in the dark of night

If you run away
Your misery will turn to shame
If you run away
Blow a kiss to me
And if you turn away
Your sympathy will turn to blame
If you turn away
Save your breath for me
Don't wait for me
Don't wait for me
Track Name: Now We Acquiesce
From the time we left our homes for freedom
We've been bound to striving for all our days
Now we acquiesce and collapse at evening
And turn to fantasy to set our souls ablaze

But when I greet the morning and feel you breathing
I can feel the sun reaching through the gray

Though the sin has left its toll on sinners
Even saints will suffer unto the end
