Track Name: Module
Streaking through the atmosphere
Tumbling toward the hemisphere
Through the looking glass he leers
Only thing that’s clear
A plume of smoke to the right
A trail of gray there in the sky
Thinks on how he chose this life
About to crash and die

Suddenly a jolt
Parachute deployed
Suddenly a hope
Swing down overjoyed

Slowly the fear
Starts to embrace him
Will this thing float
Cannot escape
Seconds to wait
‘Til it’s decided
A space primate
My body is broken

We’re falling
We’re crashing
We’re sinking
We’re drowning

Years out there in space
The cancer how it ate me
I'm still alive somehow
Andromeda had changed me
You know I gotta get back to earth
To prove this monkey’s been there
You know I gotta get back
Not just a test subject

Suddenly a jolt
Parachute deployed
Suddenly a hope
Swing down overjoyed

Centuries frozen
Floating through the stars
Weightless nightmare

Slowly the fear
Starts to embrace him
Will this thing float
Cannot escape
Seconds to wait
‘Til it’s decided
A space primate
My body is broke
A crashing sound booms
The module is buried
Beneath the waves
The storm doesn't scare me
All my training
Stars and the planets
The only thing I forgot
Was to learn to swim

We’re falling
We’re crashing
We’re sinking
We’re drowning
Track Name: Face Behind
Remember what you said to me
My fate against your destiny
Move over next to me
My hands upon your face
‘Til it comes again

(Chorus)
My face behind it
My name beside it
Laughing like you like it
My face behind it
My name beside it
Good enough to buy it

Change is all it is
The thing you wanted it
To be and not be missed
Your eyes they were all lit up
Like a coming train

(Chorus)
Track Name: Circular
Apparently the heart is a ring
I’m really tryin’, I’m really tryin again
Seems to me like a radar ping
The circle dyin’, the circle dyin’ again
I started to feel
You not saying nothin’
And then you went and blew out the wheel
This won’t end how you wanted it to

Keep on running try to forget it
I’m not sayin’ that ya gotta be reckless
No not like me
Keep on thinking you’ve gotta protect it
I don’t want to be the one to suggest it
You’re not saving anyone

(Chorus)
I kept wanting to be (I don’t know why I wanted to be)
In your little world
That’s a marathon for me
Full of hurdles
There’s no victory (no prize)
No flag unfurled
Whatever speed we're just
Going in circles (Only circles)

Apparently your heart needs a ring
I’m really tryin’, I’m really tryin’ again
Something tells me it doesn’t mean
What you’re tellin’, what you’re tellin’ me
I’m not denyin’
I’m not denyin’ it
But past me you’re flyin’
Past me you’re flyin’

Keep on running ya try to forget it
I’m not sayin’ that ya gotta be reckless
No not like me
Keep on thinking you’ve gotta protect it
I don’t want to be the one to suggest it
You’re not saving anyone

(Chorus)

You’re starting to talk to me
I’m starting to believe and you don’t have to
Communicate with me but I know it will
End the way it began with your eyes on me
Track Name: Marfa
We ended up out on the side of the road
72 hours wasted driving each other home
Engine busted no money and no where else to go
Just wait a minute, wait a minute, something's out there

Looked out on the hills
Started flashing colored lights
Noticed other people showed up and they parked nearby
We sat there gazing same direction the rest of the night
Little bursts of light, little bursts of light

(Chorus)
Don't leave it up to question
We ignore all the rules
Don't leave it up to question
Don't suffer any fools

And then they told me people had waited in the hills
Several hours to discover who’s responsible
They never found a thing, no man, no props, nothing still
And they’re still searching, man they’re still searching

(Chorus)

Like it or not
We're who we’re ‘sposed to be
Ready or not
There’s time to make that change

All your dreams
Coming true
Just to everyone else out there but you
Track Name: Daylights
Possibly
You scare the daylights
Out of me
Constantly thinking
That you mean
The opposite of
Everything
Sailing in a sea
I can’t navigate

(Chorus)
If you never tell me why then how could I know?
If we went another mile it would be too slow
I never thought I’d see the day we’d call it off
You never tell me why so how could I know?

Could it be
That you had forgot
Everything we planned to make together
And instead you tried to think
Of ways you could
Sabotage that dream
Even so I
I can’t believe it
Oh I can’t believe it
Oh

(Chorus)

If everything’s so perfect
How come it doesn’t feel right?
If everything’s so perfect well
Well how come it ain’t right?

(Chorus)
Track Name: Paint
Heavy mind, stolen heart
Given time all falls apart
Nevermind, put away
Stones to cast another day
But when we find it was today
Don’t ask why we were led astray
Something else I meant to say
I need you, you hide away

Clouded mind and a covered face
If you double down you’ll be replaced
Bring it up, tear it down (breathe it in, breathe it out)
Here’s the red, paint this town

Hold it tight or let it go
If you want they’ll never know
Stay the night or stay alone
Give me up, yeah let me know
I’d pay the price to end this show
Cut the tree don’t let it grow
Nowhere else, close us down
Come with us or don't come around

We stood there, mouths open
Not believin’ what was said
Too tired to speak
Too tired to think
Almost fell apart
And they came to take us home
But we had to escape
Breathe it in, breathe it out
Here's the red, paint this town

I couldn't believe how you spoke to me
I wanted to be here, honestly
Can you hear what you’re saying?
Listen to yourself for me
I cannot believe what you’re thinking
Why can’t you hear what you’re saying?
Honestly
Listen to yourself for me
I cannot believe what you’re thinking
Why can’t you hear what you’re saying?
Track Name: Up All Night
Slept until noon today
The sun shone on my face
Took a while to realize
We were still outside
Grabbed your boots and clothes
Said you had to go
Found my jeans and led the way
Back up to your place

(Chorus)
What a night and day
Where we can live this way
I hope that it can last
Like good things from the past
Whenever you
Say you need me
I think I might just go ahead
Not hear what you say

Slept until two today
Your smile shone on my face
Only took one second to see
You beside me
Now the last thing I’d expect
Is you to come correct
And say let’s go again
The hard part’s just began

(Chorus)
What did you say?

Up all night
And we been drinkin’
Feels all right
I hope they listen
To what we have
To say I don’t think
That they can't say
We didn’t mean it
Up all night
And we been drinkin’
Like every night
And nothing’s changin’

Whenever you
Say you need me
I think I might just go ahead
Not hear what you say
Track Name: Like A Record
Say what you want to
I’m laughing it up
No matter how it looks
You're giving 'em over
You're wasting my luck
Don’t wanna be mistook

Go ahead and say it
You called it right
Go ahead and claim it
On the other side

(Chorus)
Over and over starting again
Like a record
Lazy friendship ruined them
Without a word

Pray how you want to
I’m staying outside
I know the heads will turn
You’re giving 'em over
You’re wasting my luck
However much they earn

Go ahead and say it
You called it right
Go ahead and claim it
On the other side

(Chorus)
Track Name: In The New Year
When you said that you would change
I didn't think you’d lie
You were burning from inside
All about my family
Friends they did arrive
Never knowing for the ride

(Chorus)
And I think and I think our time is running out
And I think and I think it is
And I think yeah I think our time is running out
Yes I hear yes indeed it is

Never thought I’d get the blame
I didn't think you’d try
But you killed all my alibis
They’ll never see that you’re so strange
The proof has all run dry
You’re some kind of mastermind

(Chorus)

I’d never been
Won’t ever again
Return it
December
Come back again
In the new year
Track Name: Millennial
Guess what
I’m not mad anymore
I think not
Think I evened the score
Take me
Take me back to your home
Feel that
Don’t feel all alone

And why not
Why can’t we go up north
Why can’t we take it
Live further up the shore
You’d think that
With everything that we've done
It wouldn't matter
The past is gone

(Chorus)
Not satisfied with going home
Wanna get out there we wanna know
It’s our turn to have a go
Never satisfied with going home
We wanna get out there we wanna know
It's our turn to have a go
Don’t even think about saying no

You say
We aren’t good enough
We think
You‘re just talking tough
‘Cos we’ve seen
More than most have
And we think
More ain't all that bad

Well try this
Well try to add it up
We wanna
Wanna flip that cup
Live life
Like it’s the only one
That we've got
Our hearts weigh a ton

(Chorus)

We waited long enough
For somethin’ comin’
Mmm for somethin’
Kept promisin’ us
For somethin’
Kept promisin’ us
And nothin’
