Track Name: Boredom
Boredom is waiting for your call
in a world that suffocates the pure of heart
Boredom is waiting for you to call
in question anything you ever thought
… Starting now

Fear of boredom likes to rear its ugly head
while telling us that slowing down is laziness
Fear of boredom likes to get into our head
and keeps us all believing we’ll be young again
.. we’ll be young again
… we’ll be young again.
Track Name: All Music Must Die
We must grow old
So do our ideas, our ideas
Daughter, you know
All things, they must die, they must die

With the world always changing
Constantly adjust
But the past will stay another day

My son will sing
By then, no more words, no more words
Our songs in past
The noise, it will end, it will end.

And the times are changing
With the world always changing
And we find new friends
Track Name: Following the Moon
As we were following the moon
you were quick to hold my hand
and of course I never mind

I was never one for words
but the friend I have in you
is all I need until the end
Track Name: We Used to Know
Old things, not yet retired
left over from a time we used to know

Propped up, held by a wire
left over from a time we used to know

Cold room white chandelier
left over from a time we used to know

Photos seen through the mirror
left over from a time we used to know

Old things not yet retired
left over from a time we used to know

Held on, more than a lifetime
left over from a time we used to know

Repaired, repaired, repaired again
left over from a time we used to know

Reused, reused, reused again
left over from a time we used to know
Track Name: Slow Down
Nothing ventured nothing gained
Thoughtless words can lead to pain
You, yourself aren’t made of glass
Always moving always fast

Won’t you please slow down?
slow down, please slow down

Then you beat me black and blue
What have I ever done to you?
Don’t you think you’ve made your point?
Don’t you think I’ve had enough?

Won’t you please slow down?
slow down, please slow down
What’s the rush?
slow down, slow down, please slow down

Stop and think!
slow down, slow down, please slow down

You move to fast...
What’s the rush?
slow way down
You move to fast
slow down, please slow down
You move to fast...
Track Name: Leaving Home
I’m holding on, you’re leaving home
The different choices made result in many ways
The rising sun, your failing lung
Not all results of fate are caused by what we’ve done

You’ll stick it out, I’ll crawl away
To stay or to escape, our problems still remain
Another choice: If we ignore
still resolutions vague and nothing else gets done
You’re climbing up, I’m falling fast
The sorry state of things is just another sign of the times
Another step, another rung
The different paths we take the stars we choose to follow
Track Name: Lost in the Crowd
"To each his own", we used to say
"To each his own", we used to think
...Now we’re all alone

All our friends come and go
All our friends born and die
All our friends move away
All our friends cease to be

I conjure these words and my thoughts are heard
I sound out these words and our thoughts wither by
...and fade away.

Maybe what you think is that I’m just a man
with nothing to do and nothing to say
…fading away

We flutter around passing windows by
Strangers moving past never making a sound
like no one’s around.

Our desert dry, all friends and foe,
all lovers past: all left behind

Our desert dry, all friends and foe,
all lovers past: all lost in the crowd

We can never go back to a world that’s flat
and the long summer nights where we never grew up

We can never go back to a world that’s flat
and the long summer nights where we never grew up

...and all because

We are Lost In the Crowd

We are Lost In the Crowd

We are Lost In the Crowd

We are Lost In the Crowd

We are Lost In the Crowd
Track Name: Metaculture
I'm sure I can't escape your side
Every time I try I'm back again
Ferromagnetic reaction to my every move
But there's a feeling of apprehension
into a sea of my reflection
The coldness of these yellow eyes colliding with my soul

Your problems I cannot resolve
every time I try I trip again
tangled into your position, feelings of helplessness
To stop speaking and listen
against a straining gut reaction
a major deficiency fighting with my will

Idyllic moments in our world
will try and reconcile these things untold
Relation through metaculture may not be the cure
I know you have objections
I know you are reluctant
To admit this peaceful world may never exist

Exhaustion - take me by surprise
Once again, I dream of other lives
The cycle of loose connection without self-control
Everything an old reaction
Everything has ceased to matter
All desirability doesn’t have a hold

Sleeping can be a lonely vise
Escaping through my necessity
The power of a great escape working every time
But it leaves my problem pending
An un-resolving action
The mass of possibilities end in disrepair

Mister, I know you share my view
I have a feeling there is more aside from you
The corners of the world exploding as ideas grow
The forming of a new connection
The study of our obsession
The focus on a global world with so many lives
Track Name: Fate
Once we dare to reach the top:
Am I really better than I was?
And the ne recruits are here:
meager slow beginnings

Some provide the many rules we choose to follow when predicting fate
Often lies, we continue to desire beyond our needs

At the rally, meet our host
All the shareholders come to view
Show the numbers, show the chart
Falsify all profit

Some provide the many rules we choose to follow when predicting fate
Often lies, we continue to desire beyond our needs

Some provide the many rules we choose to follow when predicting fate
Often lies, we continue to desire beyond our needs

Always running out of time
though our pocket watch broke long ago
If I’m late again it’s death
and there are still more meetings

Some provide the many rules we choose to follow when predicting fate
Often lies, we continue to desire beyond our needs
Track Name: All Damage has been Done
Let’s hear it for the kids who cry their eyes out when the light’s out
Where’s your sympathy?
I used to think its safe, but now I’m not sure. Now I’m unsure
All damage has been done

Listen to our rivals: Quite impressive, most impressive
- enough to scare us all
We grew up paranoid, automatic, all the static
All damage has been done

I thought that it was safe, but now I’m not sure. Now I’m unsure
We heard it in the news:
The stories of our neighbors who cry their eyes out when the lights out
All damage has been done
Track Name: Suburban Dreams
We always try to maintain some control
instead we’re victims
Places, faces all surrounding us
in opposition

We always try to maintain some control
instead we’re victims
A million people try to do the same
in opposition
Try frustratingly to take control,
becoming victims

We drive along we drive along suburban dreams

We drive along we drive along suburban dreams

We drive along we drive along suburban dreams

We drive along we drive along suburban dreams

We drive along we drive along suburban dreams

We drive along we drive along suburban dreams

We drive along we drive along suburban dreams

We drive along we drive along suburban dreams

We drive along we drive along suburban dreams
Track Name: Drifting
Tide rising high
Dive, try to hide away
Safe, cold and deep beneath the reef
Waves, liquid hands cradle me
Wash my wounds
and find what’s left of me:
Debris, floating on the sea
And find what’s left of me
floating on the sea
And find what’s left of me
drifting out to sea
Track Name: Brushfire
We met in June and nothing could have warned of coming danger
Calm and quiet, heat would be the only true Summer curse
Then came sounds of people rushing panic in their voices
They won’t stop until they’re safely in the street

The fire, Fire, FIRE!
is burning down the houses
run Run RuN RUN!
The siren siren siren
is calling out my name as long as I’m here

The fire, Fire, FIRE!
is burning down the houses
run Run RuN RUN!
The siren siren siren
is calling out my name as long as I’m here

Rescue me, Rescue me.

Rescue me, Rescue m
