Track Name: Watch Your Mouth
I was in the backyard looking in the mirror,
You were in the bedroom seeing it much clearer.
We were not meant to be, but sometimes it's alright.
I don't disagree, but girl you've got some nerve,
saying I don't give you half what you deserve.
Meet me in the kitchen listen tell me, is this absurd?
We could wait a while and see if it gets better,
although we realize that won't happen ever.
You're too comfortable to change.
I'm too tired to run away.
So let's just a wait a while and see if it gets better.
I don't know...
I don't know how I didn't see that we were sinking.
I hate you when you're drunk and you hate me when you're drinking.
We were not meant to be, but sometimes it's alright.
I don't disagree, but girl you've got some nerve,
saying I don't give you half what you deserve.
Meet me in the kitchen listen tell me, is this absurd?
We could wait a while and see if it gets better,
although we realize that won't happen ever.
You're too comfortable to change.
I'm too tired to run away.
So let's just a wait a while and see if it gets better.
Watch your mouth, watch your mouth,
You have a little drink and you let it all out.
Looks like we're stuck together...
Track Name: They Always Come Back
Home doesn't always feel like home.
Friends don't always feel so close.
Stop telling me what matters.
You were smart to flee the scene.
You dwindle in my memory,
unconscious and on machines,
enough to keep me wondering.
If I pull the plug and say goodbye,
will I see you in another lifetime?

They always come back,
even when you least expect.

Me, I've been working on me,
trying to get to where I need to be.
Stop telling me what matters.
If I pull the plug and say goodbye,
will I see you in another lifetime?

They always come back,
even when you least expect.
When the power is out of your hands,
and you wonder if you were a good man.
Track Name: Coordinates (ft. Magik*Magik Orchestra)
Coordinates.
They don't matter here,
As far as your concerned.

I was shattered,
Into the atmosphere,
So now I matter.

Small little pieces,
All over your world,
They will speak to you,
And I'll be heard.

Accumulating in your ear I'll not be ignored.
I was not a waste of time as much as you were a waste of mine.

I was abandoned into,
Small little pieces,
All over your world,
They will speak to you,
and I'll be heard.

Accumulating in your ear I'll not be ignored.
I was not a waste of time as much as you were a waste of mine.

You can't sleep and,
This is not what you expected,
So call it karma.
I'm becoming everything,
You ever wanted.
So how does that make you feel?
That you can only have me in,

Small little pieces,
All over your world,
They will speak to you,
and I'll be heard.

Accumulating in your ear I'll not be ignored.
I was not a waste of time as much as you were a waste of mine.
Track Name: Your Face
I never thought this could be any bit different,
than the last mystery, she's doing it again oh my god-
I can't believe it's happening again.

I thought I saw you, but you didn't turn around,
the girl without a face, she only makes a sound.

Hey, hey, what you doing?
Hey, hey, we're our only kind.
Hey, hey, I Iove your grammar,
it always improves mine.

Your face in my mind.
I'm trapped in Eastern time.

We're growing older, but your voice still sounds the same.
You seem to be content, but less than 7 out of 10.

Hey, hey, name a place and…
Hey, hey, take that leap of faith.
Hey, hey, I'm so impatient for this escapade to begin.

Your face in my mind.
I'm trapped in Eastern time.
Your fate is in my hands,
but I'm trapped in Eastern lands.

I never thought this could be any bit different than the last mystery,
she's doing it again oh my god- I can't believe it's happening again.
Track Name: Diving Down
Diving down to the bottom, beneath the floor,
spiraling like an unfamiliar staircase.
Stoned and speeding,
sinking and singing.
Stuck and static,
Not fit for public,
but publish my panic.

What's it gonna take to get my head straight?
What's it gonna take to turn around?
What's it gonna take to face a new day?
Until I can look ahead I'll be looking down.

Climbing out of the shadows,
my arms are asleep.
So confused when all I see are visions.

I was in love with your melody.
I thought I was your harmony.
Now I don't wanna be American,
I don't want to have a government.
No country to defend.

I wonder when the way will show.
Will I ever get back home?
If left up to my own devices,
I'll try and fail, until I'm ready.
What else should you say,
Other than you made it home,
You made it out alive.
Track Name: Goodbye Stranger
I was given a ride.
I couldn't have crossed that bridge myself.
It was lost in the tide.
Look across to the other side.
Remember all those people,
but I can only see their faces-
alive and they are ageless.
Here I go to new and foreign places.

Pulling through… untie the knot and I'll untangle you.
Walk away… into the night for darker day.

I never saw myself in the shoes that I am wearing,
discolored and the sole looks like it's tearing.
Of all the words in the entire world,
I choose to say less is more.

Goodbye Stranger.

Pulling through… untie the knot and I'll untangle you.
Walk away… into the night for darker day,
then rain, then breeze.
You don't even notice when the leaves are on the trees.
Just like the day you realize the relief you feel when you're not paralyzed.

There are so many games to play.
There are so many lives to save.
There are so many bigger things.
What seems so heavy in a year won't mean a thing.

Goodbye stranger.
Track Name: Edward Norton
I hate to sound like a popular movie,
but you complete me.
I hate to sound like a popular song,
but you spin me right 'round,
spin me right 'round baby now.
I hate to sound like a popular book,
but I've got some Soma, and you've got the look.
We should escape out to Oregon,
like "25th Hour" starring Edward Norton.
Somebody told me that I looked like him once,
and it made me feel cool, unlike when I tell you,
that you look like Elisha Cuthbert,
if she got attacked by piranhas,
but you get my jokes and that's enough for some folks.
Oh baby, I think we were meant to be,
happy as we are right now,
Yeah we'll set the bar,
with how happy we are right now.
This is our world,
more specifically our Earth.
There's so many things we say that we want to do.
So if the world ends, after 2011,
I hope we can say that we made things happen.
I know we can say that we made things happen.
Some people say that we're thick as thieves,
but what does that mean.
It sounds like something conjured up in a dream,
or made up in a tree house like "Stand By Me".
We are at an unfair disadvantage,
we might not get to live on other planets,
but we can't control when we were born anyways,
at least our age difference hasn't scared everyone away.
Oh baby, I think we were meant to be,
happy as we are right now, yeah we'll set the bar.
Oh baby, I know that we're meant to go,
somewhere off into the unknown, after we grow old.
You've done so good so far, because you know what to do
to make me believe we're here for a reason.
Thanks I won't stop believing.
Track Name: Jenn's Song
We didn't talk for almost a decade and I always wondered.
I kept on pushing, harassing your brother 'til I got your number.
Destiny can you please tell me where this goes.
Don't you doubt me, say it proudly,
that you'll never have a reason to give up on believing starting now.
We are so awesome, we should go shopping,
that's where it all happened, near Robinson Petland.
You make me dizzy, blurring my site,
driving me crazy as we're chasing this light.
Track Name: The Act of Being Silent
The act of being silent doesn't mean there's nothing said.
Here we are in this new apartment, speaking unspoken language.
It doesn't feel like home yet and something says it never will.
it's hard to sleep when between you creeps foreshadowing of years to come between us.

Moving in with you is not moving.
moving in with you is moving on.

I unpacked all of the boxes like it couldn't be reversed,
I cleaned the house and waited to across the universe.
You cried as you closed the suitcase, for your temporary leave,
The last time that I saw you is forever burned into my memory.

i never wanted to move, but i did it for you.

When you came home that monday,
i was gone and took the bed.
Oh, that little stupid empty apartment,
truly symbolized the end.
i didn't want things to get ugly,
which is why we didn't speak.
It's impressive how only a handful of words,
can destroy what was once a beautiful thing.
Track Name: Ghost Town
I took my last chance down to Texas.
I put it right out there in the sand,
and when I came back to a fortune,
I looked around at all of the land,
What a ghost town,
but I think I see it coming around.
