Track Name: Lightyear Song
So where are we now
You and I?
We’re tied to the ground
Don’t feel right

I got a plan
Could be wrong
Give it a chance
Go on

The first step is clear
Lose the fear
And playing pretend
Sayin’

It’s just part of the game
There’s no problem
Never mind that the game
Is the problem

It’s just part of the game
There’s no problem
Better watch what you say
There’s no problem here

Lightyear song
We’re never slowing down
Outrun sound
Lightyear song
There’s gotta be a
Way to get away to get gone
Go on

It’s anything but true
A tapestry frayed through
Don’t let it catch up
Let it patch up
Let it weave you ’til
You can’t feel anything
Can’t feel anything at all

Tell me to run and I’ll run
Go on
Give me the word and I’ll burn
Go on
Track Name: Waterworks
Tired of smiling
Curbside crying
Nothing goes your way

All our patience
Drained and wasted
Don’t you know it
Breaks my heart to see you

Turning on the waterworks again
Leaving
Trails of your mascara on your skin
Bleeding
Knowing how to stop but never when
Sorry now
Someone’s gotta say it

Dry it up
Baby you’ve come so far and now
You’re not even gonna try
Just let every little problem play
Spider to your fly
You cry cry
You never realize
You’re killing everything you’ve ever loved

Drop by drop goes
All you’ve got why
Does your love
Make demands
Nobody can understand?
It breaks you down

But I know
Exactly how you feel
Our hearts were made to steal
We always learn to heal
But every time we die a little
Track Name: Hey, Mr. Spaceman
Pressure
You’re under pressure
Too much to measure
You’re ready to implode

Free fall
You’re in a free fall
Gravity recall
You’re running out of road

Now you’re thinking back to when
Your troubles all began
They started as you learned to stand

Hey, that’s how it goes
and now the world is closing in
So tell us was it all that you could hope for

Hey, Mr. Spaceman
You’re coming down

So ya think you’re tough
One man ain’t enough
Hang on, the breakdown’s coming
Gonna learn how to cry

Pressure
This endless pressure
It’s gonna get ya
Your every dream and hope

Now we’re watching every move
There’s everything to lose
Your bomb better outrun the fuse

Hey, Columbia in flames, you Challenger
Just stay together ’til your ticker tape parade
Track Name: Make Sense
End of the week
And you’re begging for sleep
What’s keeping you awake
Is it your job? Your mate? Your fate?
Where do you stand when the ground gives way?
Nowhere

And you’re thinking, god
That gun looks warm
And how would it taste?
One quick shot to the face now
Would end every shout
Grow up, time to be a man

I’m trying to make some sense to someone
Wish I could to you

You’re keeping your friends
Outside your skin
’Cause you know what happens
When things get in

Dad, I’d like to be just like you
When you’re gone I pray I’m so strong
Say the right things, stop my stumbling
Join the human race and make some sense
Track Name: I'd Wait Years
Time…where have you gone?
Nine lives soon to be none

Waited for you
All this time
Waited for you
You, oh

Love…tryin’ my best
Paws, claws, teeth and the rest

Cannot get through
Stay strong love
I will get through
Promise you
Give it everything until I do
And now

Whole worlds will rise
And they will fall
Just close your eyes
We’ll feel it all
Don’t take too long
’Cause I’d wait years for
Years for
Years for you

Slow…couldn’t prevail
Catlike reflexes failed

I didn’t know
Sixth sense slow
How could I know?
Tell me so
I can know I got it for it goes
Come on

Nothing feels the same
No one sees that I am drowning

I’ll beg
I’ll plead
Don’t leave
I’m down on all fours

Whole worlds will rise
And they will fall
Just close your eyes
And feel it all
Don’t take too long
’Cause I’d wait years for

There’s no fun in pretending now
Or anymore
Nothing I could say
Could come before
The reality
And I’d wait years for you
Track Name: Cascade (Down the Rabbit Hole)
I can’t blame you at all
You’re staring down a long long way to fall
And things aren’t what they seem
Dive in deep

Say you’ll be my Alice
Be my Alice
Wonder how this
Could ever get so strange

Madness
Unchecked madness
A hatter’s best wish
is driving you insane but

This is the feel of your love cascading over me
Take a flying leap down the rabbit hole

Soldiers
Heart card soldiers
For all their orders
They can’t kill my cool hand

I’m gonna get you
Here I come

No way you’re going back
You’re lost and trapped and grinning like a cat
When things aren’t what they seem
Dive in deep

Say you’ll be my Alice
Track Name: Grinding Wheel
Seems I made an error in believin’
It’s all above the table
Everybody’s even

’Cause there must be something
You’ve been hiding
That keeps me hurtin’
Keeps me smilin’

Tidal wave
You’ll sweep me to my grave
Washing over me
Like a sea of blades

But I will not pretend
That I don’t like it
I’ll build a little home
Somewhere inside it

Careful how you shake it now
You got me by the heart

Scarlet letters
More of ’em the better
I will be your Dimmesdale
You can be my Hester

Some might disagree
But baby pay no heed

How am I supposed to feel?
You got me in your grinding wheel
Singin’ first comes love and then comes marriage
But your love’s so strong that it might just bury me

He says-she says
Play with me at recess
When the bell rings there’s nothing guaranteed
’Cause the games we play
Don’t have any rules
Per se

Tried to live with you but all
The pieces came apart
I tried to live without you
But it got so very hard

So where does that leave us?
Where does that leave us?
And how, and how, and how…

How am I supposed to feel?
You got me in that grinding wheel
Singin’ first comes love and then comes marriage
But your love’s like fire and I might get burned
Track Name: Never Better
All my good luck’s gone
Don’t tell me to keep calm

Dancing to your song
And every move is wrong

Please don’t turn me down
I’m just a sound

Wear my heart on my sleeve
You bleed it clean

In you came then out, I blame myself
The game is hell

You’ll forget me soothe regret
I know, that’s how it goes

All my good luck’s gone
Don’t tell me to keep calm

Dancing to your song
And every move is wrong

Stay held control yourself
I can’t
My heart is climbing up the walls

What phrase
What words could save me now?
I’m feeling powerless and small

I’m sorry
(Oh god I killed the magic)
(Oh god I killed the magic)
(I wish I’d known it was so fragile)

I’m empty
(How could I do such damage?)
(How could I do such damage?)
(For some wounds it seems there is bandage)
Track Name: Wings (Made of Steel)
Calm to your eyes
Underneath stormy skies
Caught up inside
The maelstrom

Then, ’45
London burned, our ally
Bombed to the ground
Feels like that now

I want wings
Made of steel
I want you to know how I feel
No one’s gonna stop this air raid
I’ll be home by daybreak

Now spotlights glow
Shots ring out
From below
Suddenly

Everything is topsy-turvy
All the dials and gauges blurry
Don’t you worry
Everything is fine as long as

I’ve got wings
Made of steel
I want you to know how I feel
No one’s gonna stop this air raid
Oh tear me apart
If you can
I’ll be welcomed as a hero when I land
No one’s gonna stop this air raid
I’ll be home by daybreak

Throttle forward, shoulders back
Straight into the devil’s lap
Instruments all ignored
Showing red across the board
Cockpit glass turning black
Only serves to hide the cracks
Landing wheels stripped away
Won’t be needing them today

(Welcomed as a hero)

Fuselage white hot seared
Every marking disappeared
Right on target, center stage
My objective now in range
Kiss your picture, keep it close
It keeps me safer than you know
Don’t worry darling
I’ll be home by daybreak
Track Name: Coward (Victory is Yours)
I’ve got a question for you now
Maybe you can help me out you see
It might set us both free
So would you

Tell me
Is there another like you?
I’m tired of trying to fight you
For every inch we give
We lose more

Listen
I need you to believe me
I know it isn’t easy
Like Antalcidas in Greece
I just want peace

This is a war I cannot win
You will destroy my stratagem

But I don’t want to feel like
I am the coward
I don’t want to feel like
I’m giving in

Surrounded
My fears well founded
And victory is yours
My armies flown
Gone home
I’m all alone

Tell me how’d we manage to survive
With so much damage on our minds?

Believe me I will say you’re right
You hear me I admit it

You’re God damned right it’s a war

This is a war
That I cannot win
Track Name: Love Machine
Collapsing in your arms
The equations fit
But the math is wrong

And answers incorrect
From a twisted pair
What could we expect?

This is just another error
In a love machine
It was built so long ago
We don’t know what it means
We are wrapped up in emotional technology
We are just another error in a
Love machine

The algorithm rules
Got an iron grip
You can feel it
Take both sides and pull

Perhaps it’s our own fault
Should have built this thing
With a fail-safe installed
Track Name: Full of Stars
Early morning dawn light
Igniting dreams of spaceflight
It’s not so far
It’s not so far
You’re halfway home

Teasing you with starcharts
It found a grip on your heart
It’s not so far
It’s not so far
You’re halfway home

Looking towards embracing
The only cold worth facing
It’s not so far
It’s not so far
You’re halfway home

My god it’s full of stars

We live we die we watch the sky

But it’s not so far
It’s not so far
It’s full of stars

We search ourselves to find ourselves
Somewhere between heaven and hell

But it’s not so far
It’s not so far
It’s full of stars

We chase the grey to the edge of day
We wonder why we’re born that way

Love fueled riot burst let’s sail the hard course
No control fusion freed say goodbye my sweet

But it’s not so far
It’s not so far
It’s full of stars
