Track Name: Things We Share
Things we share
Long blank stares

Write one more down
To keep from losing this time

I didn't see you trying
Heard you crying
All the way home
On the way home
Track Name: Dreamstate
Dream's a state of mind that wins
When I close my eyes I'm in
Unless I'm already in it too (deep)

Deep's the desire to know some good
An idea embodied need not be understood
I'm so far from you

I swear on what?
I swear to whom?
I swear, by which means not soon
The concept in question is one made to avoid what is real

I don't like to see you
I don't like to see you
It's better than sixty cents
I'm losing it, losing it
I'm losing it, losing it

Time's a funny thing
We want to keep counting
Up and up, until we're sick
Down and down, until we're dead
Track Name: On The Rocks
Newton's on a train is on those tracks are on the rocks
that were laid there

On the way to Cambridge he might miss how long it takes to feel the impact of a raindrop falling in your hair

Beauty is the impulse we all know
Duration not slow
Force incredible
Like the kind you do not wish to take alone

Conscience
Is a test designed
To prove what
You say you know
When you
Are busy being social

Now slowly pull it out
You picked your poison without a second thought
You could've spent four years in prison
You could've spent four years in hell
You could've spent four years in your baby's arms
You could've spent four years undressing for a living
Now slowly plant it inside
You need your poison now, without a doubt

It's like the dream I had last night
It's like the dream I always have
When I'm falling on the rocks
And you want me so bad
So you check my pulse at night
You think that I am slowing down
It's like the dream I had last night
It's like the dream I always have
Track Name: Forgiving Eyes
It's wonderful how we became
such close friends
although, we really didn't
I could see you naked
you could see me naked
no contracts

Forgiving eyes, yours big and bright
say something extraordinary tonight
but I can't see 'em, just a computer screen shining
bright tonight

I gotta move again, but it's not quite the end
you said something
I wish you would speak up, because I don't have the gut
to keep moving
Shift
Control

Forgiving eyes, yours big and bright
say something extraordinary tonight
but I can't see 'em, just a computer screen shining
bright tonight
Track Name: Five, Four, Three...
These uppers and downers just don't do it for me now
The water is cool, dive right in--it will cost you nothing
I know you don't lose sleep over it
Like I do

If you could be down
All of the way down
I might not be there, I said I would
Where we want wine, when winter's wrong
Weep over our lost sleep
(Wrong again)

I oughtta be down
All the way down
Down where I'm at
I wish you could get down
Yeah, all of the way down
(Wrong again)

They're cleaning up house, when they're finished I'll take a piss
On the ground floor of the simplest U.S. dream
The city is cool when you get caught up in your shit
But I know you don't lose sleep over it
Track Name: Stalling
I find myself surrounded by these stalling moments in the air
You won't touch me, you won't leave me, reminds me of my T.V.

I've got a blue book
And one that's red
And white and blue, I'm making copies 'til I'm dead
