Track Name: Laser
Lasers can't speak
Track Name: Gone
Thought I heard you talking softly
But I know the voices were inside my head
Yeah, you're gone
Yeah, you're gone

Always knew that you'd be leaving
'Cause you said that you'd be coming back for me
Yeah, you're gone
Yeah, you're gone
And it feels just like
the first time
that you said
"It's happening again"

Just like the ocean waves roll in
It's the undertow that pulls us out again
Yeah, you're gone
Yeah, you're gone
And it feels just like
the first time
that you said
"It's happening again"
What's happened to my head
Still haven't met you yet... yet
Track Name: All Those Ghosts
This hotel room - Someone died
When they found him - No one cried
This hotel room - Haunted still
No one told me - Haunted

All these ghosts behind the walls
You don't know what they saw

Just can't sleep here - Wind outside
Rattles windows - Chilled inside
Just can't sleep here - Creaking sill
Makes me nervous - Creaking

All these ghosts behind the walls
You don't know what they saw

Nineteen sixty - Angry bride
Stabbed her husband - Dark blood dried
Nineteen sixty - Stain remains
Under carpet - Remains

All these ghosts behind the walls
You don't know what they saw
Rattle chains out in the hall
Ragged imprints of the dawn

This hotel room - Someone died
Just can't sleep here - Wind outside
Nineteen sixty - Angry bride
No one told me - Haunted

All these ghosts behind the walls
You don't know what they saw
Rattle chains out in the hall
Ragged imprints of the dawn
Track Name: Sophia
Wandering 'round for days
Tuesday's washed away
Live in the present tense
Is this what you thought it meant?

A home on holiday
A place where you thought you'd stay
A postcard lullaby
Tempted by
Closed eyes

Oh Sophia
It wasn't supposed to mean so much
You know it only feels so distant
With every hand that you can't touch

What you wanted filled your eyes
Need caught you by surprise
The chasm is for rent
Is that your punishment
You've brokem every heart
Broken every rule
Hung on to every line
Tainted by
A lie

Oh Sophia
Its so hard to watch you learn
Do you feel your heart forsaken
With every lesson that you earn?

Oh Sophia
What would it take to be enough
While the linings of your suitcase
Hold all the things you trust

Wandering 'round for days
Home on holiday
Plave where you thought you'd stay
Tainted by...
Track Name: Tribes
All of your time
Is drifting away
Thoughts lie in bed
Sleeping the day

All of your time
You've been drifting away
Out of your mind
Not that you wanted it that way

One, just one
One, just one

Now that you read about it
It captures all your clan
Now that you read about it
It captures all your clan

All of your world
Is spinning around
You lie on your face
You're on solid ground

Now here you lie
With your face in the ground
Rely on your faith
And your world spins around

One, just one
One, just one

Now that you read about it
It captures all your clan
Now that you read about it
It captures all your clan

May you find one everywhere
May you find one everywhere

All of your time
Is drifting away
Track Name: Humming
Sometimes I know what life's all about
There is nothing to figure out
It's on the wind you know
It's all the air you breathe
There could be no way to disagree

But eyes have never seen the sunshine
From out here on the ocean floor

Sometimes you see lights always on
It'll reach you even when you sing along
There could be no way to agree

When it takes to the unknown
You're only meant to be an alien

You see run, you're not afraid to run
Yeah, you're only
You know you're only
It takes the pill even that feels cold
Takes the sunshine and makes it old
You see run
You're not afraid to run
Track Name: Bad Hombre
No hay lírica, amigo
Track Name: Programs
The wait is calling you back again
I don't know if they're coming to bat for you
These are the reasons, these are the reasons you fold in two
Pick any season, pick any season it's like
they called them up for you

Flash forward reason, calling me back
Flash forward reason you're calling me back

Bottled up feelings will fill to the top
They will drive you insane
Fizzle and you'll pop like a bottle
of cheap champagne

It's Monday morning and there's so much more
Bankers and streetmen they all know the score
These are the reasons, these are the reasons you called in late
Pick any season, pick any season they all wind up
the same

Flash forward reason, calling me back
Flash forward reason you're calling me back

Bottled up feelings will fill to the top
They may drive you insane
Fizzle and you'll pop
like a bottle of cheap champagne

Bottled up feelings will fill to the top
They will drive you insane
Fizzle and you'll pop like a bottle
of cheap champagne
Track Name: Wait
I said it was a long time coming
You said it was a long time past
I ask you what's in store in there for us
And now a memory is all I've got left

So I'm gonna wait right here
Because my head is finally clear
So I'm gonna wait right here
Because my head is finally clear

So go and get back into your car
I watch the sun come up and all the stars fade
See it's the stars that kept me up all night
Telling me everything would be alright

Oh and I'm gonna wait right here
Because my head is finally clear
Oh and I'm gonna wait right here
Because my head is finally clear

I know you're gonna make it home ok
You never made the same journey that I made
You see I found someone in this smoke filled room
And we're gonna be tripping soon

Oh I'm gonna wait right here
Because the answer's finally clear
Oh I'm gonna wait right here
Because the answer's finally clear
Track Name: Aloha
Going where the sand meets the shore
Nothing here could do much more
It's hard when you're pressed against
An island paradise
But harder to listen
To their advice

Goodbye everyone I know
Goodbye nothing here has grown

Going where the end meets the or
Nothing here could do much more
It's hard when you're pressed against
The islands or the ice
But harder to listen
To their advice

Goodbye everyone i know
Goodbye nothing here has grown
Goodbye everyone that lended a hand
Goodbye no one else could have better friends

I'd like to see the raindrops falling a thousand miles away

Goodbye everyone i know
Goodbye nothing here has grown
Goodbye everyone that lended a hand
Goodbye no one else could have better friends
Track Name: Mother Iron
O Mother Iron,
Can’t you see the blackbirds steal
All the seeds the winter garden
Has managed yet to yield
In the distance church bells tolling
Candles burning low
We share the words so soft, consoling,
Freeing you to go

I hold your ancient hand
I smell the dying rose

O Mother Iron,
I can taste the bluebird’s tears
As he sits and weeps with me
For the ending of your years
Standing by the gravesite, crying
I can’t read her name
December’s frozen light is dying
It’s all a losing game

I held your ancient hand
I burned the dying rose

O Mother Iron,
I can hear the redbirds sing
As they alight with hopeful thoughts
Of an early Spring
Standing by the roadside, waiting
I’ll still make it home
Vernal yearnings, slow returning
As sunlight glints off passing chrome

I held your ancient hand
I burned the dying rose
I sense you are at last at peace
I know that you are home
