Track Name: New Echoes
Old love, new moon light
No stars in the dark night
She doesn’t act like she did yesterday
Her love is hard to see far away

Ooo, aahh

Old song, new station
I’ve lost our location
She doesn’t talk like she did yesterday
Her love is hard to see far away

Ooo, aahh
Ooo, aahh
Ooo, aahh
Ooo, aahh

Old themes, new echoes
I don’t know where she goes
She doesn’t love like she did yesterday
Her love is hard to see far away

Her love is hard to see far away
Her love is hard to see far away
Her love is hard to see far away
Her love is hard to see far away

Ooo, aahh
Ooo, aahh
Ooo, aahh
Ooo, aahh
Track Name: Here—Tonight
I’ve lived my life all wrong
I’ve lived my life all wrong
I’ve lived my life all wrong
But the love you’ve shown
Tonight
Makes me want more of life
You’re mine
Here—tonight

I’ve said my last goodbye
I’ve said my last goodbye
I’ve said my last goodbye
But the love you’ve shown
Tonight
Casts us in a new light
You’re mine
Here—tonight

You have killed my wish to die

I’ve lived my life all wrong
I’ve lived my life all wrong
I’ve lived my life all wrong
But the love you’ve shown
Tonight
Makes me want more of life
You’re mine
Here—tonight

But the love you’ve shown
Tonight
Makes me want more of life
You’re mine
Here—tonight
Track Name: Life Outside
Well, I’m all rolled up again
I feel the weight of the world all the time
But I want to creep back out again
Out to a place I can breathe and let go
Of all the things that I fear and I loathe

I gotta get over it now
I stand up straight so my brain gets its blood
And I shout, “I’m invincible”
And I take steps back and forth in a line
And I look to the sky for a sign

Looking forward to my life outside
Where my limits are all my design
Maybe all it is is lies, lies, lies
But I’m still looking toward my life outside

So maybe it's not the right time
I’m sort of sore and my head feels too dense
But I know that I’ll come ‘round to it
Someday I’ll fly from the bed of my dreams
And I’ll jump in the hills and the streams

Looking forward to my life outside
Where my limits are all my design
Maybe all it is is lies, lies, lies
But I’m still looking toward my life outside

Check my socks for tightness
Check my teeth for whiteness
Check my eyes for brightness
Check my being for lightness

Looking forward to my life outside
Where my limits are all my design
Maybe all it is is lies, lies, lies
But I’m still looking toward my life outside
Track Name: Sleepless I
Lock it away, the drama, the grief
Loss lasts forever when you take it for free
You looked too good to make mistakes like me
The dark, the dark
Finds me sleepless, like a princess on a pea

You knock at night, oo ah
You knock at night, oo ah
You knock at night, oo ah
You knock at night, oo ah
Track Name: Sleepless II
Sleepless?
Try worthless
Just the latest problem, if you want want ‘em, well I’ve got ‘em
I’m just toast

Stolen
From my arms
No reason and no rhyme it’s got me thinking all the time
What could I have done

Fated
To go on
But if I have an issue be it health or existential
There is a solution

Everything is data
The world is made of code
Everything is set, you see, there’s only objectivity
Everyone knows

Make a list as the problems unfold
They tell me
Put it in a self-addressed stamped envelope

And send it to the mathematicians
Pay them well so they do a good job
Let them make their calculations
They’ll double-check so they won’t get it wrong
And when the results come in
Trust the numbers
Trust the numbers

I have questions
They have answers
I’m not qualified so I am letting them decide
For my betterment

Confident
Taking heart
All the things inside of me are quantified to make me feel
Nothing

Make a list as the problems unfold
They tell me
Put it in a self-addressed stamped envelope

And send it to the mathematicians
Pay them well so they do a good job
Let them make their calculations
They’ll double-check so they won’t get it wrong
And when the results come in
Trust the numbers
Trust the numbers

Send it to the mathematicians
Pay them well so they do a good job
Let them make their calculations
They’ll double-check so they won’t get it wrong
And when the results come in
Trust the numbers
Trust the numbers
Trust the numbers
Trust the numbers
Track Name: One Final Ride
The people on the streets
They all know how it is
They’re living the life of the sybarites
And they all know it’ll end
It’s a vicious kind of cycle
But the cycle’s already collapsed
We run on the fumes of the future
We know we’re taking

One final ride
Taking it past the limit this time
One final ride
Gonna come out on the other side
One final ride

The people have spoken
But there’s nothing important to say
Peace is a luxury
We never had it anyway
War has broken
And we’re never gonna fix it
It has to stay the way it is
We know we're taking

One final ride
Taking it past the limit this time
One final ride
Gonna come out on the other side
One final ride

Every forest’s burning
Every glacier’s melting
Every baby’s crying
Everybody’ praying
Every treaty’s breaking
Every missile’s aiming
Every head is shaking
Every finger points to

One final ride
Taking it past the limit this time
One final ride
Gonna come out on the other side
One final ride
One final ride
One final ride
Track Name: Out for Hope
The way it started I don’t know
It was the only one I ever had
I don’t know (I don’t know)
I don’t know (I don’t know)

It wasn’t shiny but it sparkled
It had its own kind of inner glow
Inner glow (inner glow)
Inner glow (inner glow)

Oh my God, Oh my God
I never wanted to live without having that
Oh my God, Oh my God
I never wanted to live without having that

I guess I started losing contact
It was a gradual loss of control
Of control (of control)
Of control (of control)

It made it easier to cope
I never had to hold out for hope
Out for hope (out for hope)
Out for hope (out for hope)

Oh my God, Oh my God
I never wanted to live without having that
Oh my God, Oh my God
I never wanted to live without having that

But I love this place I’m in
I feel it every day
All of my mistakes they seem to
Fade or wash away gladly
And though I know I lie I can
Pretend I had tough times
Maybe I’ll just try to maintain
Oh peace of mind
Track Name: Civil Aliens
Sitting around feeling all drugged up
I’ve been wondering how I’m gonna become
Someone in a land of bias and greed

Maybe I’m brave, but I’m not free
I can feel you out there studying me
You see from afar with webcams and spies, webcams and spies

And now we have high walls
It’s not your fault, civil aliens
You can attempt to sneak by
I’d dare not try, civil aliens

What I grew up with was pure bliss
It was nothing close to resembling this
We’ve missed the point of serving the greater good

If I were a mover and a shaker
I would try to mix things up
The stuff we hold dear: the stars and the stripes, stars and the stripes

And now we have high walls
It’s not your fault, civil aliens
You can attempt to sneak by
I’d dare not try, civil aliens

And now we have high walls
It’s not your fault, civil aliens
You can attempt to sneak by
I’d dare not try, civil aliens
All of our guns are manned
Understand, civil aliens
We have been told to shoot to kill
And we will, civil aliens
Track Name: Lights in Summer
The surface of us, covered in dust, is all we know of us
The surface of us, covered in dust, is all we know of us
The surface of us, covered in dust, is all we know of us
The surface of us, covered in dust, is all we know of us

But if we take our shoes off
It might make us remember
The time when we were lovers
The night we settled down
The lights in the summer
In the middle of the town

All that we see, daily routine, is all that amounts of you and me
All that we see, daily routine, is all that amounts of you and me
All that we see, daily routine, is all that amounts of you and me
All that we see, daily routine, is all that amounts of you and me

But if we take our shoes off
It might make us remember
The time when we were lovers
The night we settled down
The lights in the summer
In the middle of the town

Another today, more shades of gray, nothing to do, nothing to say
Another today, more shades of gray, nothing to do, nothing to say
Another today, more shades of gray, nothing to do, nothing to say
Another today, more shades of gray, nothing to do, nothing to say

But if we take our shoes off
It might make us remember
The time when we were lovers
The night we settled down
The lights in the summer
in the middle of the town

But if we take our shoes off
It might make us remember
The time when we were lovers
The night we settled down
The lights in the summer
In the middle of the town
Track Name: Under Dim Light
Tonight, yeah tonight
When we dined under dim light
You crossed your legs, you dabbed your eyes and smoothed your sweater

Tonight, well all right
In the booth under dim light
With lowered eyes and heavy hands together

We should relax

Tonight, what a sight
In the back under dim light
To see the future melt to memory; to start over

Try as we might
In our life under dim light
We cannot hold for ransom the things we can’t recover

We should relax just a little
We should relax just a little
We should relax a little, it’ll help us when we say goodbye

We should relax just a little
We should relax just a little
We should relax a little, it’ll help us when we say goodbye

You’re a walking memory
You’re a walking memory
You’re a walking memory
You’re a walking memory

We should relax just a little
We should relax just a little
We should relax a little, it’ll help us when we say goodbye

We should relax just a little
We should relax just a little
We should relax a little, it’ll help us when we say goodbye
Track Name: Dance Like a Hypocrite
Swimming in autumn
It’s getting cold, but for now I’m all right
Just treading water
Under the moonlight

Thinking of nothing
Hoping I’m seen as much deeper than that
Making an image
I can be proud of

Still though I struggle
I’m just a big goof wrapped in seriousness
I want to be young again
So I wear my old clothes

Sometimes I falter
Sometimes I say I’m okay in a way
That isn’t convincing
Not even to me

But I just wanna dance all night like
Some kind of hypocrite
I just wanna dance all night like
Some kind of hypocrite
I just wanna dance all night like
Some kind of hypocrite
I just wanna dance all night like
Some kind of hypocrite

So I’m a neurotic
So I’m as asocial as anyone else
So sometimes I like it
So maybe I’m honest

Sunny and softly
The way I like my mornings to come
But all my emotions
Are inverse proportions

But I just wanna dance all night like
Some kind of hypocrite
I just wanna dance all night like
Some kind of hypocrite
I just wanna dance all night like
Some kind of hypocrite
I just wanna dance all night like
Some kind of hypocrite

Maybe I’m young
Maybe I’m dumb
I don’t need a reason
To live on a loan

But I just wanna dance all night like
Some kind of hypocrite
I just wanna dance all night like
Some kind of hypocrite
I just wanna dance all night like
Some kind of hypocrite
I just wanna dance all night like
Some kind of hypocrite
