Track Name: AND
it's
it's kind of like a dream
like a dream
except i
i never get to wake up
and
Track Name: I KNOW
how do i know you
how do i know you
how do i know you any more?

(i don't know) tell me you love me
(i don't know) tell me you need me
(i don't know) say something other than
i don't know
(i don't know) how will i find you then
(i don't care) tell me you'll meet me there
(i can't say) why would you say to me
"walk away"

to. i don't know where i am going
to. i don't know where i am going
to. i don't know where i am going
I don't know if you wont' tell me.

i know that you tried. but a piece of us died.

for the rest of my life

talk about a place where i can't go
tell me about the things that i don't know
talk about the place where i can't go oh i know that i could never follow you
Track Name: MACHINES IN THE QUIET
i think i saw the ghost of the summer pass
as light streams under the floorboards
everybody's lying about the broken hearts
buried alive in the courtyard

who could love you?

you couldn't stop talking about the silver sleeves
that you left somewhere in harlem
i tried to wrap our bodies up in all of the leaves
so i could hide us from the autumn

who couldn't love you?

I saw you leading the motorcade to the riot
machine guns running quietly in the night

diamonds guns and gold all the things that i sold
when i heard your voice in the choir
if you want to hold somebody closer to you
you gotta hold em up to the fire
couldn't stop singing about a silvery city
that runs through your blood like a wire
i think i heard a voice in breathing machine
say that all we need is desire
Track Name: GET DESTROYED
when the night is bearable
and barely beautiful
and you're young and free to be.
what you want
is what you are
and you're tearing apart
and paradise won't last through your dreaming.
and i know now i know
that we all get destroyed
and i know now i know
that we all get destroyed

i cannot explain
why i pushed so hard
why i can't wait for you when you're falling
i can't hide the truth
when i look right at you
when i see where you've been and where we're going
and i know now i know
that we all get destroyed
and i know now i know
that we all get destroyed

now it seems i'm making amends for all the mistakes
that we made that we made that we made all the time
Track Name: THROUGH THE DARKNESS
what do we become in all the darkness that surrounds us in the night?
I can't decide.
we are all just satellites beaming out in hopes our dreams will find
our lives.

is the universe forgetting how small we are
and is there a void we should be running to?

we were told to head out of the city
we were told to head out west
we were told to head out of the cit y
we were told to head out west

though there's darkness in the night,
we will be found

we were so scared and so lost
we were sober and it was raining
we tried to find each other
but the darkness still prevailed
and in the quiet hours our voices
were so soft and fragile
only god knows where we are
how far we fell today

though there's darkness.
in the night, we will be found
Track Name: ON THE PAVEMENT
I found the light in the quiet;
in the spaces between you and I.
in the basement
i was enraged but i kept it inside.
and i tried but you were vacant
i wish you would shake me
and take me aside
walking in silence
letting the pavement finally decide.

there's a light in your heart
i can see that it's there
even when it's not there
there's a car in the fog
on the bridge it's clear
go check your face in the mirror
are your eyes still tired
are your lips still chapped
have your teeth grown straight
is your tongue held back.
there's a hole in your hand
it's the size of everyone
you ever tried to hold on to

if it came down to you or me, i think you're better off alone
if it came down to you or me, i think you're better off alone
if it came down to you or me, i think i'm better off alone
if it came down to you or me, i think i'm better off alone

we can talk about starlight
we can talk about visions
we can talk about groovin'
and we can do it all night long

we can talk about you.
Track Name: WITHOUT LOVE
can you make peace without love?
can you make peace without love?
can you make peace without love?
can you make peace with our love?

if i could make amends with the night
if i could try to my best then I might
if i lie in bed tonight
i give up the thing I believe in
can you take all of the things i have done
can you take all the life out of love
can you let go of the hate in your heart
give up the thing you believe in?

can you make peace without love?
can you make peace without love?
can you make peace without love?
can you make peace with our love?

if i could turn all the stone into sand
if i could lie. if i could be a man
if I could only be a man
be a man who believes in
tell me that i really have what it takes
tell me how we can control our fate
or all the ways that we said we would break
remember the ones we believe in

remember the way that you were.
are you there with the people that you love?

I'm in love.
Track Name: AND IN THE END
i added an "and" to the end of your sentence
because i didn't like the way we ended everything there
i can hear everything
and it's making me smaller
oceans are rising
go make the buildings are taller
but i'm only a man
and i do what i can
in the end all we have is an end

i'll hold your hand and i'll lead you
into that watery doom.
i'll hold your hand but i'll leave you
out in that watery doom.
Track Name: WE ALL FIND LIFE OR SOMETHING LIKE IT
what if i wake up and i don't want to see myself again
i'm all worn out but i'm wearing it better than you right now
i can give you reasons why i don't care where you are
i know i'm better off alone for now

was it what i said?
is it in my head?
are we really dead?
what'd i do instead?
did i go to bed?
baby, were you mad?
could we work it out?
is it too late for that?
are you feeling sad?
could it be my bad?
did we make mistakes?
i could admit to that.
baby, when you left
remember what i said
if you wanted to leave
why are you looking back?
