Track Name: Gravity
You are a sunrise
That makes its way across the skies
And disappears to the other side
So it's dark for a little while
A little while

Gravity pulls me back, brings me home
Sailing through a sea of stars all my own

Highs and the lows, love
Wax and wane as the moon above
I'm the moon and you are my sun
We are two but we move as one
One

Gravity pulls me back, brings me home
Sailing through a sea of stars all my own
Track Name: Glances
Nothing you do is explained
You disappear without a trace
And nothing you say is the truth
But you blame me for not trusting you

My kingdom for your love
My kingdom for your love

All of your poetry
I read it like a prophecy
And tried to find hope in each line
Clouds veil the eastern star this time

My kingdom for your love
My kingdom for your love

I know now that nothing good lasts
I just let the daylight hours pass
And if you should happen to write
I'll recall the way I feel tonight

And take my chances with passing glances
And take my chances with passing glances

My kingdom for your love
My kingdom for your love
My kingdom for your love
My kingdom for your love
Track Name: Manic
Well I just want to be myself
And I don't want to take the pills
But if I don't I have to crawl
Between the valley and the hills

And you want what you can't have
And you're good but you act bad
And you reach but you can't grab
To brace yourself for that

It's manic baby, I know that too well
It's lonely in this textbook case of hell
It's alright sometimes nobody can tell
so I think, so I hope, so I have to believe

Sometimes when I close my eyes
I can almost see the truth
But when your mind's the one that lies
There isn't much the heart can do

And you want what you can't have
And you're good but you act bad
And you reach but you can't grab
To brace yourself for that

It's manic baby, I know that too well
It's lonely in this textbook case of hell
It's alright sometimes nobody can tell
so I think, so I hope, so I have to believe

It's manic baby, I know that too well
It's lonely in this textbook case of hell
It's alright sometimes nobody can tell
so I think, so I hope, so I have to believe
Track Name: Message
Crimson and Chrome
Send the message to me
You're not alone
Send the message to me
Seeking a sign
Send the message to me
Raven at night

Circle of salt
Send the message to me
Moonlight exalt
Send the message to me
Shadow and shade
Send the message to me
Chalice and blade
Send the message to me

Pisces Virgo psychic connection
Send the message to me
Send the message to me now

Crimson and Chrome
Send the message to me
You're not alone
Send the message to me
Seeking a sign
Send the message to me
Raven at night
Send the message to me

If you only believe
Let your magic mystify me
Mystify me

Circle of salt
Send the message to me
Moonlight exalt
Send the message to me
Shadow and shade
Send the message to me
Chalice and blade
envoyez-moi le message

Pisces Virgo psychic connection
Send the message to me
Send the message to me now

Send the message to me
Send the message to me now
Track Name: Satellite
Hidden moon; the sky is cracked with lightning
Spoke too soon and now the game is frightening

But there is one solid stone beneath my feet
You never ebb or flow despite the turning seas
Each morning I wake up and spend my day with you
And I won't be afraid as long as that is true

When my skies are gray you stay exactly where you are
And when they're blue, you move. Become my my evening star
I don't have another satellite, no
I don't have another satellite, no

Haunted night; the fog reflects the pale light
Branches bare; I know there's something out there

But there is one solid stone beneath my feet
You never ebb or flow despite the turning seas
Each morning I wake up and spend my day with you
And I won't be afraid as long as that is true

When my skies are gray you stay exactly where you are
And when they're blue, you move. Become my my evening star
I don't have another satellite, no
I don't have another satellite, no

I don't have another satellite, no
I don't have another satellite, no

I know there's something out there

I don't have another satellite, no
I don't have another satellite, no

I don't have another satellite, no
I don't have another satellite, no
Track Name: Crossfire
Caught in the crossfire of a pre-existing feud
But I was a kid back then, I didn't know the truth
You wanted fast, I needed slow
Gave me a choice as long as the answer wasn't no

Oh huckleberry, you were the light in my sullen sky
You were my world, you were my world
But you lied
Oh where did you go, where did you go when you changed your mind?
We were just fine, we were just fine
But you stooped so low

I made the move, then you did too
Expectations high but I disappointed you
I wanted you talk, you wanted to fight
Calling me up in the middle of the night

Oh huckleberry, you were the light in my sullen sky
You were my world, you were my world
But you lied
Oh where did you go, where did you go when you changed your mind?
We were just fine, we were just fine
But you stooped so low

I know what it's like to be alone
To never feel at home when you're at home
Oh you can't always get what you want, no

Oh huckleberry, you were the light in my sullen sky
You were my world, you were my world
But you lied
Oh where did you go, where did you go when you changed your mind?
We were just fine, we were just fine
But you stooped so low
Track Name: I Should Go
Take your lies and your regrets downtown
Drink yourself so blind, but don't make a sound
Put yourself to bed and dream a troubled dream
Wake again in pain of a different breed

But I don't want to hang around anymore
My liver's biting at the dust, my heart has hit the floor
And if I find just one more thing to justify
Following that siren's song I think that I might die

I should go home
I should go

Call your friends, find somewhere else to go
When the daylight ends you can't be alone
Demons in your head won't let you rest or sleep
And they don't mind the bad company you keep

But I don't want to hang around anymore
My liver's biting at the dust, my heart has hit the floor
And if I find just one more thing to justify
Following that siren's song I think that I might die

I should go home
I should go

Even when you wake up you're afraid you'll drown
Even when you find someone they never stick around
I can't be there for you, I've got troubles of my own
I can't be there for you sinking like a stone

And I don't want to hang around anymore
My liver's biting at the dust, my heart has hit the floor
And if I find just one more thing to justify
Following that siren's song I think that I might die

I should go home
I should go
Track Name: Wonderland
With your arrows in my back I always return to you
You swear that you're not icing me I know it isn't true

I think you took a deeper look at who I am
I think you headed for the hills
I think you made a different plan
And honey that's alright
You know I understand
Fiction was more fun than the truth
We learned there's no such thing as wonderland

Ah, wonderland
Ah, wonderland
Ah

With your gospel on my tongue I always would sing your songs
Looking back i realized I had all the lyrics wrong

I think you took a deeper look at who I am
I think you headed for the hills
I think you made a different plan
And honey that's alright
You know I understand
Fiction was more fun than the truth
We learned there's no such thing as wonderland

Ah, wonderland
Ah, wonderland
Ah

Too late to cross the great divide
Too late to lead the blind

I think you took a deeper look at who I am
I think you headed for the hills
I think you made a different plan
And honey that's alright
You know I understand
Fiction was more fun than the truth
We learned there's no such thing as wonderland

Ah, wonderland
Ah, wonderland
Ah

Wonderland
Ah, wonderland
Ah, wonderland
Ah
Track Name: Phantom Limb
The moment you think you're gonna drown
Nothing in your head feels right, right now
Breathe in, breathe out

You're trapped behind a wall of sound
Your hands, they shake. Your heart, it pounds
Breathe in, breathe out

You're just losing traction, a phantom limb
A chemical reaction to the memory of him
The oracle speaks in rhymes
I don't have the answer, especially not this time
Day by day
Is my best advice

Your head, it spins. You can barely see
Left foot, then right, alternately
Get out, get out

The sidewalk feels so very far
You forget just where you are
But get out, get out

You're just losing traction, a phantom limb
A chemical reaction to the memory of him
The oracle speaks in rhymes
I don't have the answer, especially not this time
Day by day
Is my best advice

But oh, doesn't it feel good in the sun?
oh, doesn't it feel good in the sun?
oh, doesn't it feel good in the sun?
oh, doesn't it feel good in the sun?

You're just losing traction, a phantom limb
A chemical reaction to the memory of him
The oracle speaks in rhymes
I don't have the answer, especially not this time
Day by day
Is my best advice
Track Name: Rise
Let the cats fight it out
I'm going home
I'm going home to be with you
Let the cats fight it out over
Lipstick and shoes
Over pop culture news I'm going home

To california
But this time not to be the one to be taken care of

Let the dogs bark it out
I'm on my way
I'm on my way to be myself
Let the dogs bark it out over
Traffic and lost time
Over standing in line I'm on my way

To california
But this time not to be the one to be taken care of, no

And when you wake
If your heart still feels heavy
Fill a lake with every lovely memory
And if your fear
It still gets to your head
We'll build a sailboat out of your hospital bed
You raise a sail, I'll be your wind

And you'll feel better when the sun rises again
Orbiting your sky
Sending particles of color to your eyes
And I'll be there
When you rise
Track Name: Answer Me
Trap of forbidden fruit
Talking snake to boot
Isn't that nice
Isn't that nice
Nothing we can do
But accept this grace from you
Isn't that nice
Isn't that nice

Silence answers prayer
Bathing in my broken starlight
These rules don't seem fair
But nothing in life is fair, right?

If you want me to say you're the king you better
Answer me, answer me this time
If you wear the crown then don't let me down you better
Show me now, because I won't bow blindly
No

Take it all away
So that I must cry your name
Isn't that nice
Isn't that nice
Wish I may I wish I might
Precious in his sight
Isn't that nice
Isn't that nice

Planes fly overhead
Shadows cast are long in mourning
Living and the dead
Cry your name that can't be boring

If you want me to say you're the king you better
Answer me, answer me this time
If you wear the crown then don't let me down you better
Show me now, because I won't bow blindly
No

Answer me, answer me this time
Show me now, because I won't bow blindly
