Dreaming 03:37
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

Capsized 03:25
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?”

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

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

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
