Track Name: Pheromones And Molecules
Is it just as cold
Six hours ahead
Has the night reached its darkest point
While my sun just begins to set

Do you have your arms outstretched
Six hours ahead
Grasping at the cold winter air
In the cold white sheets of your bed

I’m still sleeping on
Visions of you lying here
Pheromones and molecules
That never seem to clear the air

Are you drunk on italian wine
Six hours ahead
In the arms of some italian boy
In time with his charming steps

And my feet, too, will dance that kick
Six hours behind
Into the wisps of her flowing dress,
Her soft skin and her whisky breath

I’m still sleeping on
Visions of you lying here
Pheromones and molecules
That never seem to clear the air

I’m still dreaming that
You are lying next to me
Pheromones and molecules
That never seem to disappear

I’m still dreaming…

I’m still sleeping on
Visions of you lying here
Pheromones and molecules
That never seem to clear the air

I’m still dreaming that
You are lying next to me
Pheromones and molecules
That never seem to disappear

I’m still sleeping on
Visions of you lying here
Pheromones and molecules
That never seem to disappear

I’m still dreaming...
Track Name: Never Gonna Be
Oh baby, I can't promise
I'll give you what you want cuz
What you want is something
I can't be

I've tried my best, I swear it
You just don't want to hear it
Even though you know deep down
It's true

But if it’s never quite good enough,
Then why are you still hanging round?
I’m sure that you’ve got much better things to do
Than giving up your time with a fool like me
I’m never gonna be what you wish for
When you’re dreaming, love

And if it doesn’t look good enough
For you to stay, I can relate
You’re not the only one sticking your foot out the door
Waiting for a chance to go
We’re never gonna be what I wished for in my lonely days

I don’t know what to do
Do I keep on fighting for you
Leaving my pride over by the door

Or do I just cut my losses,
Say “c’est la vie” and move on to
Another day searching for someone new

But if it's me you want
I'll give you all of my heart
A thousand times over
Til I can’t anymore

I'll give you more of myself
Than there is to give
With the world in my hands
I’d give it all, and still it’s

Never quite good enough,
Then why are you still hanging round?
I’m sure that you’ve got much better things to do
Than giving up your time with a fool like me
I’m never gonna be what you wish for
When you’re dreaming, love

And if it doesn’t look good enough
For you to stay, I can relate
You’re not the only one sticking your foot out the door
Waiting for a chance to go
We’re never gonna be what I wished for in my lonely days

But if it’s never quite good enough,
Then why are you still hanging round?
I’m sure that you’ve got much better things to do
Than giving up your time with a fool like me
I’m never gonna be what you wish for
When you’re dreaming, love

And if it doesn’t look good enough
For you to stay, I can relate
You’re not the only one sticking your foot out the door
Waiting for a chance to go
We’re never gonna be what I wished for in my lonely days
Track Name: Fault Lines
My heart calling across
a chasm of an ocean
gaping wide and all consuming

If I could shout out loud enough
the water would part before the waves of sound
and from my lungs to your ears,
my heart laid across fault lines and mountains

You’d hear,
You’d hear the quiver in my voice
You’ll feel,
You’ll feel it shaking across the earth

Close your eyes and remember the sound
a muffled echo through your skull
of my heart beating in your cheek
and my fingers tangled in your hair

I’ll try and stop myself from waiting
every minute that I spend pacing
with your words and your smile and your laugh
still bouncing off the walls of the room

You’ll hear,
You’ll hear the quiver in my voice
You’ll feel,
You’ll feel it shaking across the earth

You’ll hear,
You’ll hear the quiver in my voice
You’ll feel,
You’ll feel it shaking across the earth

One day, love, we’ll swing
our arms, clasped hand in hand
beneath the arches of ancient bridges
built on the callouses of ancient hands

you’ll fall asleep in my arms
on a train to southern france
and when the mediterranean sprawls
glittering before us

You’ll hear,
You’ll hear the waves crashing on the shore
You’ll feel,
You’ll feel your feet aching on the rocks

You’ll hear,
You’ll hear the quiver in my voice
You’ll feel,
You’ll feel it shaking across the earth
Track Name: Another One Down
All the way down the diamond road
where we’ve lost ourselves among
the branches in the search for truth
I see a faint light in the distance

But you, things got dark down there
all the twisting shadows and faces of demons
began to shape you
body, mind, and all

And in the middle of the light of day
You took another life away
And another one down, and another one down
And half the world to go

And in the middle of the light of day
You took another life away
And another one down, and another one down
And half the world to go

And all the hatred were the only friends you had
I’m scared for the small part of myself
I saw in you, I know it could have been me, too
I do, I do

Somewhere where we walked the same path
and I turned right and you turned left
‘til all you were was the darkness
that was your view of the world

And in the middle of the light of day
You took another life away
And another one down, and another one down
And half the world to go

And in the middle of the light of day
You took another life away
And another one down, and another one down
And half the world to go

And all we want is to look away
Pretend everything’s fine, nothing needs to change
And another one down, and another one down
And half the world to go

And in the middle of the light of day
You took another life away
And another one down, and another one down
And half the world to go

(bridge)

And in the middle of the light of day
You took another life away
And another one down, and another one down
And half the world to go

And in the middle of the light of day
You took another life away
And another one down, and another one down
And half the world to go

And all we want is to look away
On the darkest hour of the darkest day
And another one down, and another one down
And half the world to go

And in the middle of the light of day
You took another life away
And another one down, and another one down
And half the world to go
Track Name: When I Say Run
Run
When I say “run”
You should probably run
Just trust me

Run
Don’t look behind you
At all the eyes
Behind venetian masks
Starving on your blood

Don’t stop for me
I’ll catch up eventually

(Let me run)x4
We’ll be running in fields of green
climbing trees when we’re done
and we’ll wake up on little drops
of the midwestern sun

(Let me run)x4
We’ll be running under skies so blue
until the evening comes
we’ll sleep til the breaking light
of the midwestern sun

Run
up the stairs of the 42nd st subway
find the next train out of here
til you can breath the summer air

Run
til we’re done
stepping over hurried rodents
late for meetings in some sewer ditch
they’ll claw and bite
til they scratch the itch

over and again until the next computer glitch

(Let me run)x4
We’ll be running in fields of green
climbing trees when we’re done
and we’ll wake up on little drops
of the midwestern sun

(Let me run)x4
We’ll be running under skies so blue
until the evening comes
we’ll sleep til the breaking light
of the midwestern sun

We’ll be back a week from Thursday
You can drop right back into the rat race
Maybe a month if we decide to stay
Maybe a year if we don’t pay attention

Maybe we’ll grow old in warmer weather
We’ll own a bigger house together
Down that open sunny road
we can drive and drive forever

As long as we’re back by Monday morning
I’ve gotta be in by 9am

(Let me run)x4
We’ll be running in fields of green
climbing trees when we’re done
and we’ll wake up on little drops
of the midwestern sun

(Let me run)x4
We’ll be running under skies so blue
until the evening comes
we’ll sleep til the breaking light
of the midwestern sun
