Track Name: The Fool
you stack two five come out swinging instead of acting cool
you wake up drunk and can’t remember if you ended as the fool
you fall down flat the tv is static the floor is gonna change
her light burns bright in darkest corners she couldn’t heal your pain
maybe you won but does it really matter after all that you’ve done

(lyrics by j/wilkins)
Track Name: No Movement
you think you can love cause you’re better than everyone else
skin quivers and hums a machine shouldn’t think of itself to be
you feel no movement but you’re world has changed now something is lost in the dawn’s glow
you wipe the memory reboot and start over every night repeats
blood, bite your tongue cause they treat you like everyone does
you think they can love but men can only think of themselves not to be
you feel no movement but you’re world has changed now something is lost in the dawn’s glow
you wipe the memory reboot and start over every night repeats
you feel no movement but you’re world has changed now something is lost in the dawn’s glow

(lyrics by j/wilkins)
Track Name: re:Union
some nights i miss every sound faint words bodies on the ground
it seemed like everyone loved me
false light offers to return i swear some people never learn
when will we wake up from that dream?
too scared to be alone too broke to move along
don’t you know a ring is just a ring
you stand inside the night darkness warmth collide
don’t you know your ring is my ring
he says, “i know you and i’ve seen what’s coming down”
faint words bodies turn to clay these days i can’t run away
she says, “i’m not new - never thought you’d come around”
sunlight promise to return now that the ghosts have all been heard
too scared to be alone too broke to move along
don’t you know a ring is just a ring
you stand inside the night darkness warmth collide
don’t you know your ring is my ring

(lyrics by j/wilkins)
Track Name: Our Bodies Will Inherit The Earth
las vegas colorado springs tucson sacramento albuquerque
mesa miami denver jacksonville pittsburgh wichita portland
get it out of my head it’s out of my hands
cyanide seconal parathion nembutal carbon monoxide hydrogen sulfide
ether chloroform barbital heroin morphine benzene alphenal
get it out of my head it’s out of my hands

(lyrics by j/wilkins and d)
Track Name: Pollution (To The Sea)
we are going to the sea

(lyrics by d)
Track Name: Shift
there’s some truth in fiction there’s some truth in lies we’ll shift our reasons and let fate decide
you can’t really mean that you want to fight i’ve been trying trying to let you in my life
i get lost
were you always screaming were you born this way
i can’t afford the minutes that melt entire days
i won’t push you further i want you to stay
and i’ve never really ever felt this way
i get lost

(lyrics by melissa mileski)
Track Name: Dagger
the sunshine girl is sleeping she falls and dreams alone
and me i am her dagger too numb to feel her pain
the world is full of noise yeah i hear it all the time
and me i am your dagger you know i am your wound
i thought i heard you whisper it happens all the time
i thought i heard you whisper it happens all the time
she whispers while i'm sleeping i love you when you smile
i didn't really lose you i just lost it for a while
the world is full of noise yeah i hear it all the time
you know i am your dagger you know i am your wound
i thought i heard you whisper it happens all the time
i thought i heard you whisper it happens all the time

(lyrics by neil halstead)
Track Name: Breathe, Stop Breathing, Breathe
turn to one side and let yourself go in my arms sown tight hands turn way too slow
they did this to you why do this to me a muscle flinches a lover cuts itself free
breathe stop breathing breathe
anti-native life where nothing comes for free palm trees lie your reflections look like me
we tried this too soon genetics trap laid mines
breathe stop breathing breathe
hold me down you’ll see it comes out of my hands out of my hands it stings
head down highways tonight fall down stay with me now that i’m clean now we can breathe

(lyrics by j/wilkins)
Track Name: We Are So Fragile
we are so fragile advertising lies that are whiter than yours
we are so fragile they could give us a war just to keep us amused
we are so fragile i could stay inside and say it's all been done
we are so fragile just pretend i never tried i'll leave it up to you
we are still so young and it must be wrong but i'd do it all the same
we are really so shy there's nothing i can do except believe in you
we could always go home but everyone says this is the place to be
we are so unnatural but you wouldn't understand you only deal with men

(lyrics by gary numan)
Track Name: Summer Puzzle
i have no memory i am forgetting this conversation as we are having it
it’s not that i don’t care about what you are saying i am desperately hanging on your every word i am watching your lips and tongue as you speak i am absorbing your breath
i adore you but any minute now you will stand up and make your exit
the flowing grey streaks in your hair the fading sent of vanilla that remains as you leave
i have no memory but this dull aching knot in my stomach
the shape of your eyes and soft curve of your nose leaving me slowly
i have no memory i of course do not remember when it left me or why
was there an argument did i get drunk and say something i didn’t mean
did it choose to stay in one of the warmer climates where i had once lived
i have no memory of not being this alone
it was my mistake summer went away it was my mistake
it was my mistake summer puzzle breaks it was my mistake
i have no memory it’s not clear that i have a historical basis for being here
i feel like a tourist observing the machines and emotions human connections
someone goes into surgery they give you coffee
someone dies and they offer you a cheese plate
someone holds my hand as we watch you go
it was my mistake summer went away it was my mistake
it was my mistake summer puzzle breaks it was my mistake

(lyrics by j/wilkins)
