Track Name: Get Lost
I can't see this going out of style
you might think I'm crazy but just wait
oh denial
you're a cold one you said that with faith
and time we'd be living it up again
I gotta wonder
just when do we begin

I don't get lost I can always find my way back here
the record's on and whispering in my ear
it's hard to get what you want but you can use who you got
fuck the shame and fear

I can't stand the way they talk sometimes
constant raving 'baby where's your smile?'
all the lines
someday somebody's rope
will have something sharp at the end of it
I wanna be there
to see what you get

I don't get lost I can always find my way back here
the record's on and whispering in my ear
it's hard to get what you want but you can use who you got
fuck the shame and fear

so if the storm clouds stick in the sky
it's just a reason to stay in
and if the sun stays set forever
we'll hid a match from the wind

I don't get lost I can always find my way back here
the record's on and whispering in my ear
it's hard to get what you want but you can use who you got
fuck the shame and fear
Track Name: Ride the Time
eyes bright from starlight
held tight all night
'til the flame we can't tame

why oh why can't we turn back time
to when that fire was prime
and you were still here

oh as space and time unwind
we smash
a twelve pack with the gods and the moon
somewhere lost inside my mind
it's you
that drags me from the ashes of the past
so eat your hear out father time
we're living on your dime
partners in crime

lost in your last breath
timeless 'til silence
and the pain it all fades

why oh why did you have to leave
this way
a star forced to meet its fate
light can't escape

oh as space and time unwind
we smash
a twelve pack with the gods and the moon
somewhere lost inside my mind
it's you
that drags me from the ashes of the past
so eat your hear out father time
we're living on your dime
partners in crime
Track Name: Shock & Awe
count the fools waiting outside for you
watch them lose faith in their costumes
you can't choose no you don't have to
someone new someone to smile through

on the sidewalk all you get is shock & awe
you stick around for a while
wait until the pain is gone
and it's the chance that there's
someone like you out there
that keeps you floating alone
places where you don't belong

I've seen true words on a bathroom stall
don't mean I want them on my bedroom wall
there's no law saying you can only fall so far
try it on try it all

on the sidewalk all you get is shock & awe
you stick around for a while
wait until the pain is gone
and it's the chance that there's
someone like you out there
that keeps you floating alone
places where you don't belong

and all the lights come up in the bar
and all the eyes race down for the floor

on the sidewalk all you get is shock & awe
you stick around for a while
wait until the pain is gone
and it's the chance that there's
someone like you out there
that keeps you floating alone
places where you don't belong
Track Name: Break But Don't Bend
smoke up sonny while you're standing there
killing time with the wind at your back
watch the ground as her red shoes
shine and glide and reverse like a Cadillac
she must've seen you coming sonny
I guess she smelled it in the air
can't change her mind by just
showing up to show that you're there

and now she's dancing in the rain on the sidewalk
smiling and holding out her hand
wondering all her life just
where you've been
and now you're holding the phone and you're shaking
she's crying on the other end
sometimes sonny things break
break but don't bend

head up honey when you're walking here
you never know who you'll meet in this crowd
and hit the ground with your red shoes
this dirty town never sounded so loud
and when your eyes meet slow and lonely
just back it up and turn around
now you're floating you're
floating but with your feet on the ground


and now you're dancing in the rain on the sidewalk
smiling and holding out your hand
wondering all her life just
where he's been
and now you're holding the phone and you're crying
there's nothing on the other end
sometimes honey things break
break but don't bend
Track Name: Beach Headache
lost in sound silence all but drowns in it's wake
stare it down from up high mind's eye in a daze

hold on tight don't let go
flying fast towards stars so bright
open up your eyes
for the first time blind the night
dance
dance in the flames
burn like the sun

air so pure way up here sand dune with a view
tumble down spinning fast into another you

hold on tight don't let go
flying fast towards stars so bright
open up your eyes
for the first time blind the night
dance
dance in the flames
burn like the sun
Track Name: Rotunda
don't you wonder sometimes where
where they go late at night arm and arm in the street light
howling on hight at the moon if the shot's right all
the claws they don't show at all
they're trying them on

we all wanna run away but
we all wanna make it too
we all miss those days in the dim arcade
'til the night cuts through and
I don't wanna cling to someday
like the callous few
I don't need to hold my breath to turn blue

don't you wonder sometimes where
where we go when we die empty eyed into the light and
all the shame that you made falls by the wayside
no one cares if you got it wrong
or if you saw it all

we all wanna run away but
we all wanna make it too
we all miss those days in the dim arcade
'til the night cuts through and
I don't wanna cling to someday
like the callous few
I don't need to hold my breath to turn blue
Track Name: Silky Works the Night Shift
honey you just like the moon
all you need's the right lighting
you can split the world in two
honey you just so in love with the truth
to the point it's the only
thing I can tell you

nothing ever goes smooth
you've got a fuse
to hold a candle to

until you wish that I'd never been born
shake your fist at the sky
curse the stork I rode in on
this ain't Johnny's way
but man is it cold

well you know me too
staring at my shoes
got a 'glass is half full
of day old blood'
point of view
and I'll pull through
I just need someone to talk to
maybe a wide eyed girl in brown cowboy boots
like you

nobody's dreams come true
I've got one too
I wanna drag you through

until you wish that I'd never been born
shake your fist at the sky
curse the stork I rode in on
this ain't Johnny's way
but man is it cold
Track Name: Return to Whatever
California girls got a special way
of letting you down
it's always sudden but it's never hard
nobody's fault it's just not in the cards
California nights always let you know
when they're gonna go south
you see it coming from a mile away
it doesn't matter if you go or you stay

I've stood on this shore
a thousand times
the sun diving into the waves
but it's different somehow and
I can't quite say what changed

it must be something about you babe
makes me wanna leave my wandering way
that road is just as open
and the ships still sail at dawn
I just let 'em go
I think I'm staying on

California dreams go a darker place after they die
stick sitting on the dock of the bay
Moses himself would've lost his way
so I packed a little bag and I headed east
but didn't get too far
stopped in the desert but it didn't feel right
turned around in that cold blue light

I've stared at this sky
a thousand nights
the stars dying into the day
but it's different this time and
I can't quite say what changed

it must be something about you babe
makes me wanna leave my wandering way
that road is just as open
and the ships still sail at dawn
I just let 'em go
I think I'm staying on
Track Name: Seafoam Black (The Flame is Gone)
she says "don't hang up, I want you to hear this song
about love and loss, it's got it all"
she held the phone to the stereo and hummed along
smiling through her teeth when the chorus came on
it goes
baby there ain't no easy way to say this
I think I'm moving on
it was fun while it lasted the fun is in the past, kid
I think the flame is gone

so I hung up the phone and I laid there in the dark alone
'til the sky swapped the moon for the sun
and when the time came to catch my bus I just a wandered outside and waited
someone in a car on the corner was playing that song

now every night something cold compels me
to turn the radio on
so I can feel like I felt that time when
we used to play that song

---

one and one make too good to be true
the love between me and you
third time is the charm what harm could come
from trying to mend a broken love

but I'm falling for you again
blue eyes make love begin
and it's never too late-ly
you've felt it too

well he says she sells sea shells by the sea
twist your words blame it on me
what am I to do
besides giving up missing you

---

she says 'don't hang up, I want you to hear this song'
