Track Name: golden age
I'm getting ready for the golden age
All my trouble's gonna fade away
And I can remember when I felt so small
Next thing I know I'm ten feet tall

Sunday morning, there's a fever in the street
I'm going back to the places where we used to meet
Its been a long long time but I feeling the pull
my head is open, my heart is full

I feel a little bit nervous but I'm not afraid
I wanna make good on the plans we made
I love you now like I loved you then
And I'll never make those same mistakes again.

I'm letting go of all the things that I can't control
Got may headphones on, playing "silver soul"
All my dreams are real
All my debts are paid
I'm getting ready for the golden age


I'm getting ready for the golden age
All my troubles gonna fade away
And I can remember when I felt so small
Next thing I know I'm ten feet tall
Now I don't feel anything at all
Track Name: everything follows
I was going somewhere
Letting go of what I held so close
Cause everything follows
once you've given up the ghost

I was on my way home
You were burning in effigy
I was singing for the punk rock girls
With the tattoo sleeves

Can't go back to feeling like it did before
Cause its just not who we are anymore
You said "its not fate, its just circumstance."
And its our last chance
And its our last chance

But I'm sending transmissions and memories
And I'm Pounding sonnets into typewriter keys
Because I can't wake up from this sea sick trance
And its our last chance
And its our last chance

Red and yellow roses
Letters that I sent to you
Paperbacks and mix tapes
I couldn't take away your blues

You're an actor's actor
A luminary of the screen and stage
Electric apostle
Of the modern age

The show is over now, everything fades away
No more songs to play

Can't go back to feeling like we did before
Because its just not who we are anymore
You said "its not fate, its just circumstance."
And its our last chance
And its our last chance
But I'm sending transmissions and memories
And I'm Pounding sonnets into typewriter keys
Because I can't awaken from this sea sick trance
And its our last chance
And its our last chance
Track Name: the eternals
I'm awake with you
And your bad dreams
Maybe we could use
A change of scene
I never had a home
But the curves of you hips
First burn the maps
Then we burn the ships
Cause you lose yourself
When you're in between

So Leave it alone
Do what you wanna do
The old days are gone
A new life is calling you
You're lost in a dream
You're floating downstream

Is there something wrong?
Cause I can't tell
Won't you meet me by
The carousel?
Because you can't get ready for the fiery crash
I never fuck with the future and the past is past
What I mean to say
Is all is well

You'll open your heart
With no reservations
We're the eternals
The pale generation
They'll call it a crime
But they don't know time

If I'm the one to surrender
I'd never give you away
Our hearts will glow just like embers
And for once
I'll know just
What to say
What to say
What to say

So Leave it alone
Do what you wanna do
The old days are gone
A new life is calling you
You're lost in a dream
You're floating downstream

Open your heart
With no reservations
We're the eternals
The pale generation
They'll call it a crime
But they don't know time
Track Name: cold war
I woke up late to find
Out
I'm alone

And its heavy on my mind
And I
Wanna know

Where have you been?
You're dissapearing all the time

Are you back now
With your old friends?
Just a vampire
For the weekend?
In your old hometown
Does it bring you down
To be back again?

And the party's over now
I'm on the street
When I'm lost amongst a crowd
I feel so free
Got a restless heart
And we've lost our way somehow

And I'm hiding
From the daylight
Its a cold war
But I'm alright
In your old hometown
Do familliar sounds
Keep you up at night?

Are you back now
With your old friends
Just a vampire
For the weekend
Have I seen you for the last time?
Will I know you
In the next life?
And I'm hiding
From the daylight
Its a cold war
But I'm alright
Are we close now
To the free fall?
Did you break down
The berlin wall?
Should I venture
Into slipstream?
Are we working
Toward the same dream?
Track Name: lonely from rock and roll
I got a broken heart
So come and cover me with wings
I got it in my mind
To turn away from everything
I'll sing a song for you
About the shape that I was in
When all your basement clothes
Are wearing thin

this feels like something's missing
i'll talk but no one's listening

but if you feel like hiding out
i know a place where we can go
i changed my mind i miss the life we used to know

I got a broken heart
So come and carry me away
I got it in my mind
To fall down to my knees and pray
But I'll sing a song for you
About the shape that I was in
When your designer clothes
Were wearing thin

In all my dreams too long to tell
I hit the ground with broken wings
And when the morning comes
I can't remember anything

(instrumental)

but if you feel like hiding out
i know a place where we can go
i changed my mind i miss the life we used to know
In all my dreams too long to tell
I hit the ground with broken wings
And when the morning comes
I can't remember anything
Track Name: the best and the brightest
The best and the brightest
Were our favorite band
They played the songs in the keys that only we could understand
When my mind is hazy
When I’m fading away
I’m listening to the b-side to “Destroy a Holiday”

I’m on your side
Be on my side
Cause I’m on your side
Be on my side

Radio Daydream
Was my favorite song
When my head is empty
When the days get long
We were looking for something
Someone we used to know
And now the ancient circle’s separating slow

I’m on your side
Be on my side
Cause I’m on your side
Be on mine

Freedom will wait
If you dare to escape
So hold on
Hold on
It won’t be long

I’m on your side
Be on my side
Cause I’m on your side
Be on mine
Track Name: high time
Well its high time
A windfall or a warning sign?
To get back to where you once belonged
And let go of your old mind

Its a good day
Stand up and face your fate
The hard times only made you strong
And its not too late

Verse
You're breaking your back but there's nothing for you going upstream Been working for your whole life You got lost in the wrong dream

And you're gonna fight, its what you learned to do your whole life Trying to get back overground And come up for a little light

And its high time
To look back on what you left behind
When you're pretending that there's nothing wrong
It wears you down to a thin line

your good friends
Are coming back around again
But you can't remember who you are
You wonder how that happened

Bridge
And now the days are getting longer
You're looking out across the sky
The clouds look just like dark ships closing in
So you pull back the shades and let them pass you by

Well its high time
A windfall or a warning sign?
To get back to where you once belonged
And let go of your old mind

Its a good day
Stand up and face your fate
The hard times only made you strong
And its not too late
Track Name: the world is ours
Grey veils over blue skies
You came calling for me
I was stumbling along
Still singing those songs
In the skeleton keys

Waiting on a revelation
Till the sun burns through
I was writing a scene
For a new books of dreams
I was looking for you

Lets drown in our revery
Out here beneath the stars
We don't know what comes next
But we know the world is ours

Its go time with the go team
And if you're looking for me
I'm with the queen of the slipstream
Back where I wanted to be

All the people walk in darkness
Broken satellites
I'm writing letters to you
Because I wanna get through
Make you feel alright

There's no more looking back
Now that we've come this far
Way up and down the line
We know the world is ours

Lets drown in our revery
Out here beneath the stars
We don't know what comes next
But we know the world is ours

There's no more looking back
Now that we've come this far
Way up and down the line
We know the world is ours
Track Name: evangeline
Evangeline
The storm is over now
I love the way
The sun burns through the clouds
I'm still the same
I'm still the kid you knew
For all we've lost

Evangeline
I hear the breaking waves
I'm drifting off
I swear I'm not afraid
Down by the shore
Everyone's rushing round
I'm standing still

Evangeline
You are my sweetest friend
We can't stay here
Can't go back home again
I turned my back
Remembering everything
Must find its way

Evangeline
You've seen me through it all
The pavement shines
The cherry blossoms fall
Our love will grow
My heart is keeping time
Evangeline
Track Name: geography
Tell me what you see
When you close your eyes
Are you in too deep?
Are you sick of goodbyes?

Your geography
Is an I. O. U.
In a feedback loop
Where the light burns through

In a brokedown car
On the ferris wheel
In a ring of fire
We backed out of the deal
We backed out of the deal

When the roof caved in
We were in a trance
And beyond harm's way
In this graveyard romance

We could let things go
Walk around the block
How our teachers cried
How our parents were shocked

On Saturn's rings
With your heart displaced
On a copper wave
You dropped out of the race
You dropped out of the race
