Track Name: Entropy and Disorder
Well I'm waiting here, I'm waiting for a symptom
To relieve this pressure from my aching bones
Well I'm leaving here, I'm leaving as the last train's dying
On the way to where I couldn't find my home
It's a lonely time, a lonely time, when you're in the city
Searching for the final puzzle piece to come unglued
Well I'm waiting here, I'm waiting for another revival
But eyes are only seeing things I've yet to do

I'm a sloth, I'm a drunk, I'm a vampire
I'm a zombie killing all your precious time
I'm an object unidentified
Swimming through your dreams tonight
No good will come while I survive

Unsatisfied, unsatisfied, I'm tired
I'm letting down my shields, so go ahead and fire away
You can stick a knife into my side and leave me out to bleed and die
I'll be back again, just stay well away
You're beautiful, you're beautiful, you're wasted
You're everything I want and I don't care, just go away
'Cause I will wreck that pretty face and turn you into what you hate
I'm the cancer of the world, you know my name

I'm a sloth, I'm a drunk, I'm a vampire
I'm a zombie killing all your precious time
I'm an object unidentified
Swimming through your dreams tonight
No good will come while I survive

You'll count my faults on every star
So take those numbers, roll 'em up, and let 'em go
I'll be waiting where you are

I'm a sloth, I'm a drunk, I'm a vampire
I'm a zombie killing all your precious time
I'm an object unidentified
Swimming through your dreams tonight
No good will come while I survive
No good will come while I survive
No good will come while I survive
Track Name: This Glorious Chaos
I will see you on the other side
And I will see you on the other side

The sky is painted black
There's no one here for miles
Something's very wrong
There's no one here for miles
I know there's something more
I can see it in the stars
When it's my turn to go
I'll be waiting where you are
Something's in the way
Something's in the air
Just another breaking dawn
We were never even there

I'll see you on the other side
Track Name: The Emancipation of Becky Lynch
It's hard to sleep when the room is on fire
Burning houses surround us
And god, we're so tired
Water's flooding out of the hearts that we don't have
Rusted buildings and sinking ships
Are all that's left
So I guess move on

Is there a question somewhere?
Is the person I knew in there?

There is nothing left to lose
But you
I was frozen, I was broken, but I refuse
I refuse

Did you miss the answer somewhere?
I'll say it again, I'll say it again with Flair

And I'm taking back what's mine
Falling in and out of love
Is better than falling in line
You had your chance, you made your mark
Now it's my turn to shine
And I'm taking back what's mine
Track Name: The Lonesome Death of D.B. Cooper
No one knows who I am
And that's all part of the plan
Check my bags, check them again
Take control of what I can

Clean pressed suit, shined up shoes
Keeping up appearances the whole way through
Polite and quiet, smoking in my solitude
Can't let them know what I'm gonna do

"The Bandit King of the Air"
Seems like all I'll ever do
And though the world may go unaware
For one day, I flew
For one day, I flew

She thought it was just one more mostly empty flight
"Miss, you better look at that note"
Could I have flipped that switch on that late night...?
Well, I guess we'll never know

Tacoma's quiet in the rain
Close my eyes and count the days
It wasn't for the money or for fame
Let them wonder, I'll leave with my own name

"The Bandit King of the Air"
Seems like all I'll ever do
And though the world be unaware
For one day, I flew
For one day, I flew
For one day, I flew
For one day, I flew
Track Name: What Comes Around We Go Around
Semi-sick sympathy;
Close-eyed and braced for catastrophe;
We are not the ones your parents warned you about last summer.
Smiling and syncopating;
Cold-eyed and hallucinating;
Freeze the words faster than we can speak them.
Can you see them?

Here we go around again,
And it's all I know.
Here we go around again,
And it's not what you said.
All the fading fearless false final refrains we faced...
I know why we go around.

Main line, west and driving faster;
Old eyes pray for disaster.
Take the wheel, turn hard, and drive us closer
To the wall we know we'd hit before we fall.
Streetlights, burned out and fading.
Your eyes are dead and waiting
For the last breath to be broken and repeated one more time.

Here we go around again,
And it's all I know.
Here we go around again,
And it's not what you said.
All the fading fearless false final refrains we faced...
I know why we go around.

Here we go around again
And it's all I know.
Here we go around again
And it's not what you said.
We go around, we go around, we go around.
No matter what comes around, we go around.
Track Name: O R B I T
From way up here, you all seem so small
Like ticker tape and snowflakes as they fall
And it's colder than the coldest stone flying through the air
Tell me can you hear me now
Are you even there

The minutes pass like cellophane and parades
I'm finally finding what they mean by "slow decay"
And the glass that separates the atmosphere
Has grown thinner by the hour
The instruments go blue to red to blue to red to gone
Beyond my power
To recover and discover why I'm

Floating through this
Calls go out in distress
Get me out of this mess
I want to go back home
But the lines are busy
And the view is dizzying
The reply is missing
I'm still missing you

I think I know the way to go
I sit still
From way up here you all look so unreal
The mirror goes from black to red
I know I shouldn't look ahead
But I, but I do
And the fire that's outside this craft
Can only help but bring me back to you
To you
Track Name: Bodies As Fiction
Keep making peace with your demons
Let them know who you are and what you're keeping
People keep their secrets
But it's not yours
Not for you to know
There is no time for waiting
We travel far never knowing what we're facing
There is no time at all
Infinite space and we're all so small
And I, I can see you
We're all floating away
And I, I believe you
Please don't make me wait

I am up here looking down
You are down there looking out
Track Name: Hello Emily
Sing it back tomorrow, sing it back to me
Sing it back in silence, sing it back to me
Sing it back in slowness, sing it back to me
It's nothing to be faithless, sing it back to me

Complications are all I need
Conversation that never ends or never gets to be
Content and waiting for anything to be
I guess that's me
I guess we'll see

Sing it back tomorrow, sing it back to me
Sing it back in silence, sing it back to me
Sing it back tomorrow, sing it back to me
Sing it back in silence, sing it back to me
