Track Name: Miss the Darker Nights
"Miss the Darker Nights"

Some see the whole affair
A start to the end of time
And pretend not to care

I miss the darker nights
Louder than a city fire
Incessant, emergent
Hum of a thousand cries
Booming with the sound of life
Take a deep breath, inhale it

Some read the warning signs
Blind to the wool on their eyes

How could we think of love
As if it's not enough
Someone investing
Smothered the stars with light
Forcing them down to shine
Etched in pavement

I miss the darker nights
Louder than a city fire
And the incessant, emergent
Hum of a thousand cries
Booming with the sound of life
Take a deep breath, inhale it
Track Name: Bear the Waves
"Bear the Waves"

Hopping underneath the shower
Get the water running
Down my face it's running
Minutes turn to hours
Another lake devoured
By the thought of you

Stumbling out into the public
Passing by the public
Don't you love the public
Turns me inside out
Shifting up the crowd
For a sign of you

It's true, I left the sand to bear the waves
For you, but socialites and masquerades, got me

Running back into the shower
Hiding in the shower
Wastefully empowered
Washing off the pain
Heading out again
I try to let you win
But think too far ahead

Oh it's true, I left the sand to bear the waves
For you, but socialites and masquerades, got me
Track Name: Sleeper Strip
"Sleeper Strip"

You’ll find me walking round
Not saying much
Like some movie star
Drunk and out of touch

Rather slumber home
The rest are bored and it
Seems I’ve woken up
Outside the sleeper strip

You’re gonna have to meet me in the middle of the pile
Oh, I wish you and I were just you and I
You’re gonna have to take me out for lunch once in a while
Oh, I wish you and I meant you and I

Conquer the stairs
Key turned; am I enough?
I’m a poorly-timed punchline
Hoping to see you off

You’re gonna have to meet me in the middle of the pile
Oh, I wish you and I were just you and I
You’re gonna have to take me out for lunch once in a while
Oh, I wish you and I meant you and I
