01 | Leaving New York

it's quiet now
and what it brings
is everything

comes calling back
a brilliant night
I'm still awake

I looked ahead
I'm sure I saw you there

you don't need me
to tell you now
that nothing can compare

you might have laughed if I told you
you might have hidden a frown.
you might have succeeded in changing me
I might have been turned around.

it's easier to leave
than to be left behind
leaving was never my proud.
leaving new york, never easy.
I saw the light fading out

now life is sweet
and what it brings
I try to take
but loneliness
it wears me out
it lies in wait

and all not lost
still in my eye,
the shadow of necklace
across your thigh, I might've lived my life in a
dream but I swear it.
this is real.

memory fuses
and shatters like glass,
mercurial future, forget the past
it's you
it's what I feel

you might have laughed if I told you
you might have hidden a frown.
you might have succeeded in changing me
I might have been turned around.

it's easier to leave
than to be left behind
leaving was never my proud.
leaving new york, never easy.
I saw the light fading out
you find it in your heart,
it's pulling me apart,
you find it in your heart, change

I told you, forever
I love you forever.
I told you i love you
I love you forever
you never, you never
you told me forever...

you might have laughed if I told you
you might have hidden a frown.
you might have succeeded in changing me
I might have been turned around.

it's easier to leave
than to be left behind
leaving was never my proud.
leaving new york, never easy.
I saw the light fading out

leaving new york, never easy.
I saw the light fading out
leaving new york, never easy.
I saw the light fading out
 

02 | Electron Blue
you're on your ear, the ocean's near.
the light has started to fade.
your high is timed,
you found the climb

it's hard to focus on more than what's
in front of you, electron blue.
adventure rings with a page.
and when,

it dawns on you, it singes blue,
your buzz beginning to wane.

adventure has laid its claim on you
it's all you want to do
you, you know where to run
you run electron blue.

and who am I?
I'm just a guy.
I've got a story like everyone

but in your eyes,
you looked surprised.
and didn't know where to run.

I looked to her
she's found the cure
her future's already begun.

tomorrow is gaining speed on you
it's all you want to do
you, you know where to run
you run electron blue.

you, you know where to run
you run electron blue.

so bide your time
you'll feel the climb
your high it builds like a lightning storm

it sings like pearls
you know that girl
and no one is any the wiser so

as if on cue
electron blue
tomorrow is gaining speed on you
it's all you want to do
you, you know where to run
you run electron blue.

you, you know where to run
you run electron blue.

you, you know where to run
you run electron blue.
 
03 | The Outsiders
you took me to the restaurant where we first met.
you knocked a future shock crowbar upside my head.
I got caught with the stop of the tick tock, tick tock clock
when you told me what you knew.
lost in the moment, the day that the music stopped.
and I do remember you.

DRAWING PATTERNS WITH A CORK ON THE TABLECLOTH.
PROMISING VOLCANIC CHANGE OF PLOT.
WHERE WILL THIS LEAD US? I'M SCARED OF THE STORM.
THE OUTSIDERS ARE GATHERING. A NEW DAY IS BORN.

I tried to tell you I am not afraid
you looked up and saw it all across my face
so am I with you or am I against?
I don't think it's that easy, we're lost in regret.
now I'm trying to remember the feeling when the music stopped.
when you told me what you knew.
lost in the moment, the day that the music stopped.
and I do remember you.

DRAWING PATTERNS WITH A CORK ON THE TABLECLOTH.
PROMISING VOLCANIC CHANGE OF PLOT
WHERE DOES THIS LEAVE US, I'M SCARED OF THE STORM.
THE OUTSIDERS ARE GATHERING, A NEW DAY IS BORN.

DRAWING PATTERNS WITH A CORK ON THE TABLECLOTH.
PROMISING VOLCANIC CHANGE OF THOUGHT
WHERE DOES THIS LEAVE US? I'M SCARED OF THE STORM.
THE OUTSIDERS ARE GATHERING, A NEW DAY IS BORN.

THE OUTSIDERS ARE GATHERING, A NEW DAY IS BORN.
THE OUTSIDERS ARE GATHERING.

A man walks away. when every muscle says to stay.
how many yesterdays? they each weigh heavy.
who says what changes may come. who says what we call home.
I know you see right through me, my luminescence fades,
the dusk provides an antidote, I am not afraid.
I've been a million times, in my mind, and this is really just a technicality.
frailty. reality.

uh, It's time to breathe. Time to believe. Let it go and run towards the sea.
they don't teach that, they don't know what you mean.
they don't understand, they don't know what you mean.
they don't get it, I want to scream.
I want to breathe again, I want to dream.
I want to float a quote from Martin Luther King

I am not afraid I am not afraid I am not afraid
I AM NOT AFRAID I AM NOT AFRAID I AM NOT AFRAID I AM NOT AFRAID
 
04 | Make It All Okay
You threw away the ballast and you rowed your boat ashore
Didn't you, now? Didn't you?
You made your ultimatum too big to ignore
Didn't you, now? Didn't you?

So you worked out your excuses,
turned away and shut the door.
The world's too vast for us now,
and you wanted to explore

It's a long, long long road
And I don't know which way to go
If you offered me your hand again I'd have to walk away.

When I saw you at the street fair, you called out my name
Didn't you, now? Didn't you?
You said we could start over, try and make it all okay.
Didn't you, now? Didn't you?

So our past has been rewritten
and you threw away the pen.
You'd said that I was useless,
but now you'll take me in again

Well Jesus loves me fine.
And your words fall flat this time.

Was it my imagination, or did I hear you say,
"We don't have a prayer between us."

Didn't you believe that I have finally turned away?
Didn't you, now? Didn't you?
Anything to hold onto to help me through my day.
Didn't you, now? Didn't you?

Jesus loves me fine.
But his words fall flat this time.

It's a long, long long road
And I don't know which way to go
If you offered me your world, did you think I'd really stay?
If you offered me the heavens, I would have to turn away.
Was it my imagination, or did I hear you say,
"We don't have a prayer between us."
Didn't you, now? Didn't you, now?
Didn't you?

 
05 | Final Straw
as I raise my head to broadcast my objection
as your latest triumph draws the final straw
who died and lifted you up to perfection?
and what silenced me is written into law.

I can't believe where circumstance has thrown me
and I turn my head away
if I look I'm not sure that I could face you.
not again. not today. not today.

if hatred makes a play on me tomorrow
and forgiveness takes a back seat to revenge
there's a hurt down deep that has not been corrected.
there's a voice in me that says you will not win.

and if I ignore the voice inside,
raise a half glass to my home.
but it's there that I am most afraid,
and forgetting doesn't hold. it doesn't hold.

now I don't believe and I never did
that two wrongs make a right.
if the world were filled with the likes of you
then I'm putting up a fight. I'm putting up a fight.
putting up a fight. make it right. make it right.

now love cannot be called into question.
forgiveness is the only hope I hold.
and love- love will be my strongest weapon.
I do believe that I am not alone.

for this fear will not destroy me.
and the tears that have been shed
it's knowing now where I am weakest
and the voice in my head. in my head.

then I raise my voice up higher
and I look you in the eye
and I offer love with one condition.
with conviction, tell me why.
tell me why.
tell me why.
look me in the eye.
tell me why.
 
06 | I Wanted To Be Wrong
You know where I come from
you know what I feel
you're Yul Brenner Westworld
reporting from the field.
I threw it into reverse,
made a motion to repeal.
You kicked my legs from under me,
and tried to take the wheel.

I told you I wanted to be wrong,
but everyone is humming a song
that I don't understand.

now I know that the sun has shined on my side of the street.
the basket of America, the weevils and the wheat.
the milk and honeyed congregation, scrubbed and apple-cheeked
salute Apollo 13 from the rattle jewelry seats.

mythology's seductive and it turned a trick on me
that I have just begun to understand.

I told you I wanted to be wrong,
but everyone is humming a song
that I don't understand.

the rodeo is staged, gold circle goat-ropers and clowns.
a rumble in the third act, tie 'em up and burn 'em down.
we're armed to the teeth, born a little breech;
blue-plate special analysts, cells and SUV's

we can't approach the Allies 'cause they seem a little peeved
and speak a language we don't understand.

I told you I wanted to be wrong
but everyone is humming a song
that I don't understand.

[prop up The Omega Man, we're primed for victory,
God gave us the upper hand, there's honor among thieves.
temper it with arrogance, a dash of sad conceit.
the top's down on the T-Bird, we're the children of the free]

storm into the boardroom of the conquering elite.
did you recognize the madman who is shouting in the streets?
destroy the things that I don't understand
destroy the things that I don't understand.
 
07 | Wanderlust
looks like I pulled a fast one
looks like I went to town
looks like the world revolves around me
looks like it's falling down.

I thought I'd kicked the traces
I thought the wheels would spin
I thought I'd jumped the fence and bolted
looks like I'm back again

I GOT MY SIGNALS CROSSED.
IT'S OVERWHELMING BECAUSE
I'M ALL ALONE AND I CAN'T GET BACK
GET BACK WITH MY WANDERLUST.

I had to grab a suitcase
I had to change my clothes
I had to run the shower hot
until the water froze

I brushed against confusion
I wanted time to grow
I want the sticks and stones not to throw me
get back to what I know

I GOT MY SIGNALS CROSSED.
IT'S OVERWHELMING BECAUSE
I'M ALL ALONE AND I CAN'T GET BACK
GET BACK WITH MY WANDERLUST.

I'm searching for a greatness
I smear it on my face
I want to bathe in grape must
swim the length of the milky way
I want it to be brilliant
I want it to be sweet
I want to kiss the astronauts
when they salute to me me me me

I GOT MY SIGNALS CROSSED.
IT'S OVERWHELMING BECAUSE
I'M ALL ALONE AND I CAN'T GET BACK
GET BACK WITH MY WANDERLUST.

I GOT MY SIGNALS CROSSED.
IT'S OVERWHELMING BECAUSE
I'M ALL ALONE AND I CAN'T GET BACK
GET BACK WITH MY WANDERLUST.
 
08 | Boy In The Well
Look at this, it's me, walking away.
Look at you drowning, on display.
every time I've dropped by, I've tried to say
the water is rising.
you don't want to stay.

It's that sinking feeling. you know what it's bringing on.
you might as well say it,
I see it, I feel it.
this town is going wrong.
it's turning away.

YOU WANTED ME TO BE SOMEONE THAT I COULD NEVER BE
MY NEW FRIENDS ARE OFFERING THINGS I'VE NEVER DREAMED
IT'S BEAUTIFUL,
I'D LIKE FOR THEM TO TAKE ME ON...

the track mall gang went off
on the Tennessee goth. a lunar moth,
you chrysalis and flail.
the water is rising. you try to rappel.
a rousing cheer for the boy in the well.

it's that sinking feeling. you know what it's bringing on.
you might as well say it,
I see it, I feel it.
this town is going wrong.
it's turning away.

YOU WANTED ME TO BE SOMEONE THAT I COULD NEVER BE
MY NEW FRIENDS ARE OFFERING THINGS I'VE NEVER DREAMED
IT'S BEAUTIFUL,
I'D LIKE FOR THEM TO TAKE ME ON...

here is where I look back.
here is where you fell.
this is where I got up,
shaking off my tail
this is where your rope trick
started to look stale.
a greyhound pass for the boy in the well.

it's that sinking feeling
you know what it's bringing on
I might as well say it.
I see it, I feel it
this town is going wrong.
it's turning away.

YOU WANTED ME TO BE SOMEONE THAT I COULD NEVER BE
MY NEW FRIENDS ARE OFFERING THINGS I'VE NEVER DREAMED
IT'S BEAUTIFUL,
I'D LIKE FOR THEM TO TAKE ME ON

YOU WANTED ME TO BE SOMETHING THAT I COULD NEVER BE
MY NEW FRIENDS ARE OFFERING THINGS I'VE NEVER DREAMED
IT'S BEAUTIFUL,
I'D LIKE FOR THEM TO TAKE ME ON
 
09 | Aftermath
now the radio stutters. snaps to life.
some sour song that sets it right.
and when London falls
he'd like to call
but the stars collide.
they're beautiful and much maligned.
in a universe where you see the worst,
and it's up to you to fix it.

now you've worked it out
and you see it all
and you've worked it out
and you see it all
and you want to shout
how you see it all

it's easy to dismiss the "what's it all about" crowd.
there is no doubt. it's this, here, now.
and you close your eyes.
he's not coming back.
so you work it out, overfeed the cat.
and the plants are dry and they need to drink.
so you do your best. and you flood the sink.
sit down in the kitchen and cry.

now you've worked it out
and you see it all
and you've worked it out
and you see it all
and you want to shout
how you see it all

now the universe left you for a runners lap.
it feels like home when it comes crashing back.
and it makes you laugh
and it makes you cry,
when London falls
and you're still alive.
the radio stutters,
it makes you laugh
and the aftermath,
open up your eyes.
you're so alive.

now you've worked it out
and you see it all
and you've worked it out
and you see it all
and you want to shout
how you see it all
how you've worked it out
and you see it all
how you've worked it out
and you see it all
 
10 | High Speed Train
when I look into your eyes.
your drop like an anchor eyes.
I scudded and clipped the sky
just shy of making it.

and you almost got away.
I told you I was afraid.
did I really want to try
you're holding me to my claim

I JUMP ON A HIGH SPEED TRAIN
I'LL NEVER LOOK BACK AGAIN
I FLAIL LIKE THE ANTELOPE.
WHO JUMPED FROM THE BUILDING

and you caught me on the sly
you've taken me by surprise.
you've mirrored my best disguise and
turned it back on me.

I JUMP ON A HIGH SPEED TRAIN
I'LL NEVER LOOK BACK AGAIN
I FLAIL LIKE THE ANTELOPE.
WHO JUMPED FROM THE BUILDING

I JUMP ON A HIGH SPEED TRAIN
I'LL NEVER LOOK BACK AGAIN
TO BERLIN, KYOTO OR MARSEILLES
I'D GO ANYWHERE FOR YOU

I'll bring you a big bouquet
I picked it myself today
it compliments your eyes
there's love at the end of the line

I JUMP ON A HIGH SPEED TRAIN
I'LL NEVER LOOK BACK AGAIN
I FLAIL LIKE THE ANTELOPE
WHO JUMPED FROM THE BUILDING

I JUMP ON A HIGH SPEED TRAIN
I'LL NEVER LOOK BACK AGAIN
TO BERLIN KYOTO OR MARSEILLES
I'D GO ANYWHERE FOR YOU

and that's what I always knew
I'd like to have hung the moon.
I'd wrestle you for a spoon inside your sleeping bag.
just us.

no war. no hate. no past.
It's real.
I'm here. I'm yours. I'm fast.
I'm long in the eye
I'm cry when I try
I just want to fly
just you and I, together
 
11 | The Worst Joke Ever
you see there's this cat burglar who can't see in the dark.
he lays his bets on 8 more lives, walks into a bar.
slips on the 8 ball, falls on his knife.
says, "I don't know what I've done, but it doesn't feel right!"

some things don't hold up over the course of a lifetime,
when's the first time you heard that one, 1954?
get to the punch line. fall to the floor.

GIVE ME A MINUTE AND I'LL TELL YOU THE SETUP FOR
THE WORST JOKE EVER, I NEVER.
I'LL TELL YOU MY VERSION OF THE GREATEST LIFE STORY
DON'T BORE ME

now I am floating,
I feel released.
the moorings have been dropped,
the weights unleashed.
everything is crystalline, simple and free.

the crime of good men who can't wrestle with change,
or are too afraid to face this life's misjudged unknowns
you're not hurting anybody else's chances,
but you're disfiguring your own.

GIVE ME A MINUTE AND I'LL TELL YOU THE SETUP FOR
THE WORST JOKE EVER, I NEVER.
I'LL TELL YOU MY VERSION OF THE GREATEST LIFE STORY
DON'T BORE ME, I NEVER
GIVE ME A MINUTE AND I'LL TELL YOU THE SETUP

YOU SEE THERE'S THIS FEELING THAT I'VE HEARD THIS ONE BEFORE
 
12 | The Ascent Of Man
SO HESITATION PULLED ME BACK
I'M STRONGER WHEN I DON'T ATTRACT
IN YOUR EYES I'M A LAMB WITHOUT A RACK
AND I AM GETTING CONFUSED.
I'M A CACTUS TRYING TO BE A CANOE.
AS YOU PAN FOR ORE
IN THE DESERT, FLOORED,
I SAY TO YOU.

THAT I COULD NEVER IMAGINE A PLACE SO BEAUTIFUL
I COULD NEVER STEAL YOUR GOLD AWAY.

YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH...

[I try to walk like a big wham bam
I came across like a battering ram
I try to float like a telegram sam
I'm trying to divine you. ]

MY BOOK IS CALLED "THE ASCENT OF MAN".
I MARKED YOUR CHAPTER WITH A CATAMARAN.
THE ACCENT'S OFF,
BUT I AM WHAT I AM.

YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH...

[I try to walk like a big wham bam
I came across like a battering ram
I try to float like a telegram sam
I'm trying to divine you.]

I LOOKED FOR YOU, IT'S MY LAST GRANDSTAND.
A MOTORSCOOTERED GOAT LEGGED PAN
FIGURE EIGHTING IN QUICKSAND...

YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH YEAH...

[I try to walk like a big wham bam
I try to float like a telegram sam
I came across like a battering ram
I'm trying to divine you. ]

[I try to walk like a big wham bam
I try to float like a telegram sam
I came across like a battering ram
I'm trying to divine you. ]

SO HESITATION PULLED ME BACK
I'M SO IN LOVE I DON'T ATTRACT.
AND WITH MY HANDS TIED I WON'T CRACK
['CAUSE IN MY MIND I CALLED YOU BACK.]
 
13 | Around The Sun
I want the sun to shine on me
I want the truth to set me free
I wish the followers would lead
with a voice so strong it could knock me to my knees

hold on world 'cause you don't know what's coming
hold on world 'cause I'm not jumping off
hold onto this boy a little longer
take another trip around the sun

if I jumped into the ocean to believe
If I climbed a mountain would I have to reach?
do I even dare to speak?--to dream?--believe?
give me a voice so strong
I can question what I have seen

hold on world 'cause you don't know what's coming
hold on world 'cause I'm not jumping off
hold onto this boy a little longer
take another trip around the sun

around the sun
around the sun
around the sun
let my dreams set me free.
believe. believe.
now now now now now now
