Track Name: Aurora
Hard passage north
Bow breaking ice
Who's heard of Jack Frost playing nice?

Dogs on a team
Tied to the reign
Staring at me like I'm insane

They see us lost in whiteout
So far gone
Never again
Again

If we could just communicate
The fear would melt away

No cold
Could hold
Me from your glow aurora
Aurora

No low
No snow
Could drive me home aurora
Aurora

Can't chart a course
Map's incomplete
Planets of ice beneath our feat

And all around it's canvas
Steps will paint
One at a time
A time

If icy roads approach your heart
I'll be your Lewis
And your Clark
Your expedition
from the known
to places seen by God alone

A rescue party
Sent to track
Me down would pack it in and turn back
home

Who says that home is where the heart is
I say home is finding yours

I'll get lost in your wilderness
Lost and found
I'll get lost in your wilderness
Lost but

No poor
Impure
Analogy of love or metaphor
Satisfies anymore
Track Name: Please Don't Turn the Lights Out
Where do I start?
I put the pressure on and broke us apart
So good at sinking

Call me afraid
Alone or jealous I just made a mistake
What was I thinking?

Oh there goes composure I'm a wreck
All you could expect
'Cause I know

Sorry just won't cut it
But I'm sorry anyway darling
What could I say now?
Please don't turn the lights out
Leave me in my darkest hour

I gotta quit
And brain has registered it
Heart ain't so quick
It's screaming
I ain't done here yet
Track Name: Once More Unto the Breach
Will your bones
Tell a tale that everyone will know
Carve a trail
To follow

Do you feel
Emptied out eviscerated
Were you steel
'Fore you broke?

Once more
Once more unto the breach we go
All screens turning to snow
Once more
Once more unto the breach we go
Unto the breach we go

Are your soles
Scoured and cracked
And raked across the coals
Bleeding out
Let it flow

Tales of old
That cemetery gates could never hold
Could hold..

I know ya
You're just a shadow forming
I know ya
You've seen the darkness come alive
I know that
Some times are hard for letting go
But holding on is harder than you know
Track Name: Tiny Sun
If I'm the dark
All consuming
You can give me light
You can send my
shadows off in fright

If I'm the moon
Grey and lonely
You can put your rays
On my cratered,
Scarred up moon-man face

Earth
Venus
Jupiter
Mars
Callistoe
Ganymede
Adrastea and Io

Saturn
Kallichore
Mercury
Eukelade
Isosone
Lysithea
Eurydome
and Leda

Neptune
Carpo
Pasithee
Amalthea
Hegemone
Helike
Praxidike
and Luna

And you
And you

Tiny sun
You got a place
where all the other stars are hung
Where in the universe
Could you be from?
Who cares? You outshine everyone
Everyone you tiny sun

If I'm the cold
Hard and freezing
You can melt me bare
You can melt me
Melt me I don't care
Track Name: Analog Heart
The future
The future is a scary place

Computers
Alive where there should be a face

It looks like
We made it
Assume the worst
Before the worst assumes control

Everyone is telling me
Listen up
Nobody's past can be present

Everyone is warning me
Give it up
Don't want your past to be present

Confusion
(I gotta recommend it to ya)
The numbers are confusing me

They're costly
(In ways you never thought you could pay)
Nobody's crunching them for free

It looks like
We made it
But look what we've created
Our lives are automated
See them slip by bit by..

Hold on
To your analog heart
Hold on
To your unconverted
Undistorted love
The only cables you need
Carry blood
Not information
Track Name: M.O.A.B.
No
I know you said
No
And that's fair

Go
I know you said
Go
And that's fair

On course
We spread the payload doors

Hold still
I'm coming in for the kill

All shock and awe
You're blinding
Back to the crawl
And frightened
Love like the mother of all bombs

Know
I need you to
Know
How I feel

Blow
I'm ready to
Blow
How I
Feel

Hold still
I'm coming
Coming in
Coming in
Track Name: Hard to Starboard
October 4th, 1957
The Soviet Union launches Sputnik
The world's first man-made satellite
This small metal ball is met with a mixture of fear and wonder
It throws fuel on a cold war war
And ignites a space race
to last the better part of 18 years
Its successor, Sputnik II, carries a dog named Leika
The first casualty in space

April 12th, 1961
Yuri Gegarin, a Soviet cosmonaut
Becomes the first man to leave this world and return alive
His luck does not return with him
He is killed in a plane crash
He is 34

July 4th, 1932
Marie Curie, pioneering mind in the field of radioactivity
Succumbs to her own life's work
She is known to carry test tubes of radioactive isotopes
And once remarked
That in the dark
They were possessed of a pretty
Green-blue light

June 8th, 1954
Alan Turing, founder of computer science
Logician, mathematician, and war-time codebreaker
Is found dead of self-administered cyanide poisoning
Barely worse than the chemical castration
Administered for gross indecency
Homosexuality was a crime

1942
Isaac Asimov's book, runaround
Introduces the three laws of robotics
These three laws create an understanding
Between robot... and man
They precede centuries of struggle
To overcome one last prejudice

April 3rd, 2247
I am born
Thank you

To the first of my kind
To the father of my purpose
To the maker of my mind
Donor of my blood
Seed of my being
Track Name: Goodnight
You know I think
We fall asleep
Every time we blink
Sometimes between
Every last being
Sleeping on their feet

We do what gets us by
We do what gets us by
We do what gets us by
Sometimes it don't
But we still try

Every breathing flame has a pilot light
Every destination a final flight
Everybody hopes for a rope to hold them tight
Goodnight

Every war will end with a single fight
Every cornered creature a dying bite
Everybody longs for their number to divide
Goodnight

Burn
Burn the midnight oil
And on that fire
Wrap mortal coils
We'll bring our sweat to boil

It might not get us by
It might not get us by
It might not get us by
But that don't mean
We don't got to try

Every breathing flame has a pilot light
Every destination a final flight
Everybody hopes for a rope to hold them tight
Goodnight

Every war will end with a single fight
Every cornered creature a dying bite
Everybody longs for their number to divide
Goodnight

Every engineer gets a last design
Every card sharp one murderous slight
Every one who argues can hope to get one right
Goodnight

Every scaredy cat gets to die of fright
Every first attempt gets one last try
Every heart should learn to love before it expires
Track Name: The Soloist
Symphonies of sympathy and wrong
An orchestra of hurt you've heard it all
Love is just the same old song
Love is just the same old song
Love is just the same why follow along?

How you gonna feel when the music goes away
How you gonna feel when every note's been paged

How you gonna write the bridge over this
All you know is how to be the soloist
Whatcha gonna do when everyone is tired of how you play

And God knows you've got virtuosity
(Your playing is impressive)
But knowing cares to learn what you could teach
(So here's a little lesson)

In rhythm crisis heartbeats stall
In rhythm crisis heartbeats stall
In rhythm crisis heartbeats save us all
Track Name: Timebomb (Color in Your Life)
I am a time bomb
No one can disarm
Tied tongued
Losing my charm
Who said I had any anyway?

I am shipwrecked
But unbottled
And on RADAR
I disappear

I am the sum of
All of my bad parts
Half hearts
Making a whole
Damn the numbers color in your life

I want to dream like
It could pay out
And turn real-time
Into a playground
I hate still life (Doesn't it make you break down?)
I need motion (Caught in a place and I'm drowning)
And on RADAR
I disappear

I'd pay ransom
To stay childlike
And when I grow up
I'll be a satellite
Track Name: Unfinished Business
I can promise
Know
Nothing
Nothing
Nothing will
Ever will change

In the final analysis
Nothing will ever change

Out of nowhere
Comes
Something
Something
Something new
Something bigger than you
What will you do?

Dodge the bullets
Her loaded
Loaded
Loaded
Loaded gun
There's nowhere to run

Shout all you want
Tell me I'm wrong
But don't ever tell me I'm done
I'm not done

Where the fuck did you come from
from
from
from
give me something I can rely on

Why did no-one
Warn
Me you
Me you
you burn like a cigarette
My God does it burn

Shout all you want
Tell me I'm wrong
But don't ever tell me I'm done
I'm not done
Track Name: Way Out
I'm automatic
I got gears in the back of my head
One of these days
They're gonna fall out

Signals in static
We're all tryin' to complete the message
So many ways
You'll hear us call
Out

Don't break
Although I know it hurts
Don't break
Throw sabot in the works

Find a corner of the universe
Go way out
Go way out
Don't let anybody find it first
Go way out
Go way out

Wrapped up in patterns
Could we trade them for constellations?
Find a new home out in the star
Or on Mars

Don't break
Although I know it hurts
Don't break
Show your old soul can burn

Pick a dot of shining light
From the blanket of the night
Let it take you out of sight
Go get it
Go you'll get it right
We are wrong more than we like
Hold on to hope however slight
'Cause in the darkness we are bright
Track Name: Next Stop... Nowhere
With one last sentimental glance.. we come detached
and, best as we can be, prepared
Next stop... nowhere

Lights on... next stop... nowhere
Track Name: Zero Sum
Add up all the good and all the wrong
All the evil
Ever done

Take away distance that we've come
And a zero
Is your sum
