City Lights 05:07
City lights in the dead end street Meet me tonight ‘round two or three At the end of the tunnel is a TV screen The evening news are bringing Oh, how long must I wait right here Put your hand above the water And I’ll appear We all gotta wait Until you’re just a distant torture You and I came late Sitting, wondering in the corner Where we’ll go next year Missing signs in a dead end street Meet me where the river feeds Missing signs all over the place Little you, Little me Oh, how long must I wait right here Put your hand above the water And I’ll appear We all gotta wait Until you’re just a distant torture You and I came late Sitting, wondering in the corner Where we’ll go next year We all gotta wait Until you’re just a distant torture You and I came late Sitting, wondering in the corner Where we’ll go next year How long must I wait....

Smile Girl 04:52
We’ll sleep all day Longing to escape Across the frozen water We’ll feel no shame Wanting to derail And start all over You see It’s all getting better You and I And the world Yet I feel kind of lost Smile girl It’s always better When you smile girl It’s always better in your dreams You can scream all night Smile girl Because the world is getting older And the things upon your shoulder Ain’t getting younger now You see it’s all getting better You and I and your mother Close your eyes When you hug your brother Don’t you feel? You are getting close We’ll sleep all day Longing to escape And cross on over We’ll keep the pain For the monetary gain And the new world order You see it’s all getting better Not you and I And the world And I feel we are getting lost Smile girl It’s always better When you smile girl It’s always better in your dreams You can scream all night Smile girl It’s always better When you smile girl And the things upon your shoulders Ain’t getting younger now

Always dressed the best A little delayed Color Just for the holiday All this time How it goes so fast My biggest mistake Hurry up They’re waiting down the stairs And all leaving is done And all leaving is done When you are here Kiss me with that mouth Diffuse this situation Pixelated sky For our imagination Little boy They’re waiting up the stairs What have you done I can see it on your face And all leaving is done And all leaving is done When you are here What I see is a face Trace of a man in a glass One leg in two behind All the voices come and pass What I see is a face Trace of a man in a glass One leg in two behind All the voices come and pass And all leaving is done And all leaving is done When you are here Always dressed the best A little delayed Color Just for the holiday

Sleeping on the moon Dead beat father George Laughing At all these years that are Passing him by Learning what to say Thinking what he’ll be Sometimes turns Upside down Singing with the stars Fixing up the sky Hoping That all this time Wasn’t wasted on by Learning what to say Wearing colored ties Must have been Some other man He knew He used to be that ol’ boy Gypsy We used to murder his kind Now we are signing getting all-tipsy The whole world is our yard Dancing on the moon Fixing up the sky Hoping That all this time Wasn’t wasted on by Learning what to say Wearing colored ties Must have been Some other man He knew He used to be that ol’ boy Gypsy We used to murder his kind Now we are signing getting all-tipsy The whole world is our yard

Better leave before they come Before they’re here The sun’s been beating off It won’t come near Better keep your mouth shut And your heart intact You know you want to leave Ain’t that a fact He tied your hands Behind your back And handed you a bluff You combed your hair And you’re well aware You’re just another Suit hanging out So I’ll put my face Against the sky So that I could hear you Move around And my ear inside the whirlwind And I hear that there you are Better leave before it’s too late Before you are done ‘cause every inch’s been taken Beneath the sun Go better buy some room Or make a fence Recite the rules backwards It makes no sense So I’ll put my face Against the sky So that I could hear you Move around And my ear inside the whirlwind And I hear that there you are Better leave before it’s too late Before you are done ‘cause every inch’s been taken Beneath the sun He tied your hands Behind your back And handed you a bluff You combed your hair And you’re well aware You’re just another Suit hanging out
