Track Name: Everything is Temporary
Heartbreaker, peacemaker
Which side will you choose today
Don't worry, just hurry up

Standing there at the gate
For a second I thought
That I wasn't worthy for a minute of your time
All this trouble I made
Was it more than you could take
Or could you find a way to handle it

The royals, the plans they made
Were washed by the passing of time
Can you wash away with me

Standing there at the gate
For a second I thought
That I wasn't worthy for a minute of your time
All this trouble I made
Was it more than you could take
Or could you find a way to handle it
Track Name: Swan Jeremy
I was walking, it was dark outside
And I swear that I saw your face from a different place
Yeah, I saw your face from a different angle

And then I tripped into another town
And there were lights that shone all around, lights all around
I still saw your face, but it was mangled

I wait every day
To hear the words that you used to say
But they never come out

So I'll just put my head in the clouds
Try to make some sense, try to figure out
Just what I mean

I was sifting through time and space
And I swear that I heard you speak, but it sounded bleak
Yeah, i heard you speak, but it wasn't the same

And then I zoomed out of the picture
And there was nothing but flying shapes that looked like your face
And all of these shapes formed the Milky Way

I wait every day
To hear the words that you used to say
But they never come out

So I'll just put my head in the clouds
Try to make some sense, try to figure out
Just what I mean

And nothing seems to make sense at all
Everyone we know is in free fall

And nothing seems to make sense at all
Everyone we know is in free fall
Track Name: Machines
Just a blink of the eyes
And your sister's alright
Good things are waiting outside

So just forget what you know
It's about time to let go
Everyone's waiting outside

We're strapping in for the flight
We cannot sleep at night
Somehow it still seems alright
We're tossing turning machines

Our chances are getting slim
Wait for the night to begin
But either way we won't win
We're tossing turning machines

Stop
Don't turn out like that
But even if times are bad
Good things are waiting outside

We'll raise our fists to the sky
Prove that it's still worth a try
It's almost time for the night

We're strapping in for the flight
We cannot sleep at night
Somehow it still seems alright
Aaaaahhhhhh

Our chances are getting slim
Wait for the night to begin
But either way we won't win
We're tossing turning machines

We're strapping in for the flight
We cannot sleep at night
Somehow it still seems alright
We're tossing turning machines

Our chances are getting slim
Wait for the night to begin
But either way we won't win
We're tossing turning
We're never learning
The bridges keep on burning
And in the end we're all just machines
Track Name: How the World
Heard you were right
When you said you could figure out all of my thin dreams
Heard you could find
What was going on when I woke up from a deep sleep

Oh my god
It's not all what it seems
Oh my god
It's falling down on me

It's not the first time that I'm clinging onto you
It's not the first time that I don't know what to do
I only think about it
I'm trying to work out it
What does it mean

You had a plan
To give up everything and look inside of my mind
It was in your hands
But you gave up everything that you thought you could find

Oh my god
Just let me get some sleep
Oh my god
The answer's not in the sheets

Sometimes the world likes to throw out everything you own
Sometimes the world likes to eat you out of house and home
Oh, how the world
How does it work
Track Name: Afternoon
This complication
Controls the population
We've got to work now
We've got to work now

Sunday mornings
Were just a warning
For what's left to come now
What's left to come now

Standing in the shadow of trees
I'm counting all the edges of these

Heartfelt ridges
Tears on the bridges
That made a pathway
That made a pathway

Left you after class
On the under-overpass
That is quite alright
You'll be stuck up there all night

Things, they happen too soon
In the afternoon

No time to change your place
You destroyed the human race

It's so hard to stay true
In the afternoon

Well, your eyes are getting weak
Your tongue can hardly speak

Lonely farmer
Waits for his daughter
She'll never come, now
She'll never come, now

This religion
Drowned in superstition

That made us work, now
It doesn't work, now

Milk that fell from stars
And silver steel guitars
All these things you want
But they just seem so far
