Track Name: ► AFTERTHOUGHTS
AN AFTERTHOUGHT
WHITE NOISE AND THE TEMPERATURE OF LIFE
ALL HOLLOWED OUT
JUST WAVE AND REFRACTION
I CATCH MYSELF STARING OFF
INTO GREY DISTANCES
THIS WORLD HAS TURNED
HAUNTED AND ASHEN

I CAN FEEL MY HEART STRAIN
CONNECTING ALL THE LOVE AND PAIN
OF RECENT YEARS
IN A MOMENT OF RAW FEAR
I UNRAVEL THE CAUSE OF EVERY HEARTBEAT'S START
AND PAUSE

WAKE UP
I'M SORRY
I TRIED
ENVELOPED IN YOUR GOLD
I'VE STARTED TO FALL THROUGH MYSELF
I'M DYING
Track Name: ► SATELLITES
I TORE DOWN ALL MY DREAMS TODAY
LOCKED IN YOUR EMBRACE I CRIED
AND THOUGHT OF ALL THE YEARS WE'VE LOST

I SAID THAT I'D BE TRUE, I KNOW
BUT NOTHING TRUE IS TRUE FOR EVERMORE
IN SADNESS DREAMS ARE LOST

AND TIME CUTS TIME
FEEDING THE SHADOWS ON THE WALL
WE BREAK ALL TOMORROWS AS WE FALL
AND NOW I'M FEELING THE SORROW ALONE
STILL COUNTING THE SATELLITE LIGHTS

YOU'RE AGAINST THE WALL
AND I CAN FEEL YOUR EMPTINESS
AND ALL THE SADNESS STRIP AWAY
YOUR HOPE FOR BETTER THINGS TO COME
IT'S A MIRACLE TO ME
THE WAY WE WERE, THE WAY WE COULD BE
WE WERE SOMETHING REAL

BURRY YOUR FEARS DEEP INTO THE GROUND
AND LET THEM ROT
TOUCH ME, HOLD MY HAND
I MEAN IT, LET'S MAKE SURE THAT THIS COUNTS
WE COULD BE REAL

LET'S THROW OFF ALL THOSE SECOND SKINS
AND WAKE UP RAW AND OPEN
LET EVERYTHING WE'VE GIVEN UP
REMAIN ASLEEP AND FROZEN
WE COULD BE REAL
Track Name: ► HURT
ROUND, ROUND, ROUND ABOUT
I SEE YOU AT THE EDGES OF MY DREAMS
WITH GUN BLACK EYES

I'M FRAYING AT THE SEAMS
WITH NO ATOMIC WEIGHT LEFT
TO HOLD ON ONTO OUR LOVE

I TRIED EVERYTHING I COULD TO MAKE YOU HURT
TO MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND
TO MAKE IT CLEAR

I TRIED EVERYTHING I COULD TO MAKE YOU SUFFER
TO MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND
THAT I DON'T CARE
I JUST DON'T CARE

ROUND, ROUND, ROUND ABOUT
TWISTING TIRED THOUGHTS INTO THE NIGHT
WE'D TALK ABOUT

HOW OUR LOVE WAS ALWAYS STRONGER
HOW TRANSITORY PROBLEMS ONLY SEEMED
PERPETUAL

ROUND, ROUND, ROUND ABOUT
TWISTING OUR HISTORY INTO LIES
TO SUIT ONE NIGHT

A RIGID SELFISHNESS
MY ONLY MEANS TO RESCUE MY FUTURE
FROM OUR PAST

I TRIED EVERYTHING I COULD
TO MAKE YOU SUFFER
TO MAKE YOU HURT
TO MAKE YOU UNDERSTAND
TO MAKE IT CLEAR
THAT I DON'T CARE
TO MAKE YOU CARE

I TRIED EVERYTHING
Track Name: ► SWORDS
SUMMER TIME, IT MADE ME FALL
IN LOVE WITH YOU AGAIN
BUT OUR DAYS BRED COLD NIGHTS

YOUR PRUDISH CHILL, YOUR ABSTINENT DRILL
I'M SICK OF YOUR BELIEFS
TIME FOR US TO GROW UP

WE'RE MADE FOR MORE THAN THIS
AND YOU'RE IN MY WAY

OUR SHARP DECLINE IN PASSIONATE LUST
TELLS ALL THERE IS TO TELL
IT'S PURITAN AND JUVENILE

SOONER OR LATER WE'LL FALL OUT OF LOVE
AND WHAT DO WE DO THEN?
JUST SUCK IT UP AND WORK IT OUT?

WE'RE MADE FOR MORE THAN THIS
YOU'RE IN MY WAY

I NEED TO BE LOVED BY SOMEONE ELSE
MORE SEXUAL THAN YOU
A KINDRED HEART'S JUST NOT GOOD ENOUGH

I KNOW THIS IS CRUEL BUT CRUELTY IS
A PART OF WHAT WE ARE
SO MIGHT AS WELL DRAW SWORDS NOW

WE'RE MADE FOR MORE THAN THIS
YOU'RE IN MY WAY
Track Name: ► IN PERFECT BLOOMS OF COLOR
I’M LYING HERE
OBSESSING OVER YOU
YOUR SOCKS PULLED KNEE-HIGH AND TIGHT

YOUR SKIN GLISTENING AND WET

THE ARDOR OF UNSTEADIED HANDS

THE WASTEFUL INNOCENCE OF YOUTH
OUR WISTFUL ADVANCES AND RETREATS
AND YOUR TENDERLY WHISPERED APPROACH

YOU ARE COMING TOO SOON

AND I THINK OF YOU ALL THE TIME

IN PERFECT BLOOMS OF COLOR
REFRACTING IN ABSTRACT COLLAGE

AND I MISS YOU, AND I MISS MY OWN LIFE
Track Name: ► STARASH
ALL TRUTH AND LIES
ARE JUST STARASH AND STARDUST

SHATTERED DREAMS
ARE BUILT FROM THE SAME THINGS AS LOVE

IT'S CONCEITED TO THINK
LIFE COULD BE AS EASY TO MEND
AS IT WAS EASY TO BREAK

YOU WERE NEVER IN LOVE
WE WERE NEVER IN LOVE

BUT THERE'S PEACE IN DESPAIR AND ISOLATION
WHEN NOTHING IS POSSIBLE, EVERYTHING'S PERMISSIBLE
TERRIBLE THINGS HAPPEN TO THOSE WHO WAIT
FOR LIFE TO START ANOTHER DAY

YOU WERE NEVER IN LOVE

STARASH, FOREVER AFTER, TO STARDUST
THIS IS ALL LOVE IS
THIS IS ALL WE ARE
