Track Name: Lonesome No More
Lonely Eyes where have you gone
I gave you my heart You said I was wrong

Oh where have you gone?

Lonely Eyes Come back for a night
All I want to say is You were so right
--

Bolts in your hair A world wary stare
I was caught in the wake of your storm
And you let me sit In your shadow a bit
I thought I had found a new home
But you disappeared No reason was clear
I was stranded alone in the dark
Where was the fight The suffering night
The tears that never were shed

CHORUS

And so that was it The stitches were split
a seam torn before it was done
A gesture of hope the letter I wrote
I carried it with me for years
And to my chagrin The paper worn thin
Never clutched in your hands
Who was to blame That Love was a game
With rules I did not understand

CHORUS
Track Name: Firefly
Where do I begin When life is at an end?
What can I say (My) metaphors are dead]
cut away the flesh Reveal the heart beneath
(it) beats within a cage (but) when you’re near it’s free

Love forever
Not for today

[with] the moon in the sky high above
and the dark of the past torn apart
I was lost and I’m found All at once
And we dance in the light [of our fire]
[repeat]

You are The Cure My perfect drug
Keys to my heart Hang within your grasp
Open the door Release the fireflies
into the night into the skies

[CHORUS]

Love forever Not for today
I’m in Love forever What Can I Say
Love forever Not just today
I’m in Love forever How can it be
[repeat]
Track Name: Mr. Silhouette
Mr. Silhouette is a shadow in the shape of a cloud
Mr. Silhouette is a shadow in the shape of the world.

You can’t appease him (There is no reason) too logical for love
he pulls you down and (helps you drown) in his apathy parade
He means to stay and (wreck your day) with your feet nailed to the floor

CHORUS X2

Sends regrets and (And lacks interest) as you step out of your skin
You don’t say no it’s (time to go) as he serves the bitter drop
It’s all the same, you (know his name) he’s inside of everyone

CHORUS X2

[bridge]

CHORUS/VERSE Blend
Track Name: She's A Star
She’s a star But she never knew
In the sky Thought she’s all alone
Trapped Inside Of a cage she built herself.

She’s a star But she never knew
High above The average life
Holds her breath And waits to hit the ground

She’s a star But she never knew
On the stage doesn’t see the crowd
Turn around See the audience is there

She’s a star But she never knew
Thought the lights Were for someone else
And she hides Behind a glittering facade

You want to know what THEY see inside you
You want to know what THEY think about you
You want to know But Do You Really
You want to know But Do You Really
X2

She’s a star But she never knew
Full of fears Memories and doubts
runs away From the fans that wait for her

She’s a star But she never knew
In the sky Thought she’d never shine
Now she falls Into another plastic life

CHORUS REPEAT x4
Track Name: Strange Attractor
I’ve got no unified theory on what we are
A principal uncertainty is all there is
when I try work it out it’s all relative
So why can’t I escape this event horizon

After the night's retreated Another day repeated x2

Digital Dawn
Oh Oh Digital Dawn

I fall into this vortex when I think of you
Every particle is charged by your gravity
You supersaturate heart and my memories
Tell me do we have more than ones and zeros?

After the night's retreated Another day repeated x2

Is the function of our love just mechanical?
Harmonic conjunction or a wave collapse?
Can we curb the momentum of this black hole vector?
Or will you always be my strange attractor?

After the night's retreated
Another day repeated

After the night's retreated Another day repeated x2
Track Name: Elegant Universe
Keys stopped working for me today So threw them all away
But that don’t matter anymore, I can walk through walls for you
There’s a space between the atoms And I know I can line them up
And one of these days with practice I’ll walk right through to you

If you see me Lying on the floor It’s OK, It’s OK x2

I’m just taking A break from breathing x4

Winter came back to roost again It’s like I’ve never been warm before
The wind it cuts right through me And I’ve forgotten what to feel for you
Stand beside the wall and wait Shivering in the cold
And finally the moment comes And I know just what to do about you

CHORUS

Turn around and never look back The wall just fades away
The sun breaks through the clouds again As I walk away from you
The loss of desperation And a tingling in the limbs
My heart regenerating I’m on the other side of you

CHORUS
Track Name: Pale Blue Dot
Extinction Burst The only home we’ve ever known
Spaceship earth All alone inside a void
nowhere else for all our joys and sorrows
Darkness falls On a single spec of….

Dust falls through sunlight And it’s only you and me.
Dust falls through sunlight And it’s only you and…

Make Your Stand On a fraction of a dot
All there is suspended in a sunbeam
Cosmic joke Fighting for a pixel
Sea of blood On a single spec of….

CHORUS

Everyone one you ever loved
Everyone who ever was
Everyone one you ever loved
Everyone who ever was
X2

CHORUS
Track Name: Abridged History of Love
An Abridged History of Love X4

Waning light And our love unfurls
It begins again Restless

Straining Teeth And the hands transform
It begins again Restless

Tearing sheets in silent rage
Falling out of consciousness
I taste the blood inside my mouth

Unleash the scent of fallen leaves
Glide along the moonlit path
Lost inside the maze of life

An Abridged History of Love x4

Waning light And our love unfurls
It begins again Restless

Straining Teeth And the hands transform
It begins again Restless

Side by side we shed our skin
Our minds are blank, hearts aflame
Embrace night with open arms

Running naked through the streets
Looking for another soul to take
And then we’ll tear him limb from limb

An Abridged History of Love x4
Track Name: Dead Letter Office
The paper came On the other day,
Said the end was here But you don’t know

Dead Letter X3

Don’t wait for my reply
Postmarked return to sender
Another severed tie
Just call me your
dead letter office
Don’t wait for my reply
Postmarked return to sender
Another severed tie

Your number’s blocked, your name erased
the door is closed But you’re still here

Dead Letter X3

CHORUS

SPOKEN
The paper came the other day, Said the end was here at last
But I don’t think that you believe it
The book of memories is drowned The photos blurred a mess
Still a siren calls out every time I think that I am free
Your number’s blocked, your name erased, the final door is closed
But your dusty outline keeps on crying
The years have passed, The silence grows, Between your empty threats
But still I’m looking over my own shoulder, Each time I get the mail

CHORUS X2

Return To Sender X4
Track Name: Constant Reminder
Words of fire on the highway side
stare into the void beyond
Lonely songs on the radio
A weight descends and everything
[Disappears again]

Constant reminder
Of the life I used to live
Constant reminder
I had no more to give
X2

Drive along the empty road
A hazy form in the rearview mirror
The empty seat a phantom limb
The road it vanishes into
[early morning fog]

CHORUS/BRIDGE

CHORUS
Track Name: Enlarged Heart
She’s trapped in her bed
blood runs slowly through her veins
She can barely take a breath
It’s a serious disease

It’s all we’ve got x2
It’s all.

Enlarged Heart
Weighs her down
Enlarged Heart
Weighs her down
Enlarged Heart
Weighs her down
Enlarged Heart
Weighs her down

She Loves without end
doctors know just what to do.
They want to cut it out
Put it on display

It’s all we’ve got x2
It’s all.

CHORUS

Eight hundred thousand heartbeats
Eight hundred thousand heartbeats
X3
Eight hundred thousand heartbeats
Eight hundred thousand is all we’ve got.
Track Name: Midnight Girl
Martyr yourself for happiness
Denying the fear that hides in your head
Wrapped in your cloak of misery
Selling yourself

Wishing it seemed like a mystery
As the cracks appear in your shell

Midnight Girl

Craving the taste of a warm embrace
From a love that was never there
Replace the world of pain
And join the living again
X2

Giving yourself another scar
Using your body as your prayer
Surrounding yourself with mirror masks
All of them whisper to you

One more party, one more friend
Don’t let the nighttime ever end.

Midnight Girl

No funeral march, no grand parade
Just the melodrama you create
Sad little doll sitting all alone
Shatter yourself

You still believe the fantasy you live
Is better for you than the truth
Midnight Girl

--CHORUS--
