Track Name: Degrees of Separation
we live most of our together life
with eyes on sky
hoping somebody will realize our worth
but the answer is a summary
of truth and lie
and the darkness always brings us back to earth

goodness what you put me through
all these sunsets without you

no connection to the outside world
delusions flourishing
i underestimated each degree of separation
i'm not quite welcoming the bluebirds in
but i'm on my way

i ignore of course the gravity
of one plus one
to embrace the sweet insanity of you
but if i lose myself in eventide
and come undone
say you'll follow me and brave the darkness too

no connection to the outside world
delusions flourishing
i underestimated each degree of separation
i'm not quite welcoming the bluebirds in
but i'm on my way
Track Name: 500 Years
let me know when it starts to come through
should be soon
it'll start a little low
but if you wait for it the melody will open
bust open

and 500 years later you will find me
in your head
and 500 years later you will find me
in your head

i've been practicing singing to you
sending tunes
and you might already know
that every note i hit has already been broken
clean broken

and 500 years later you will find me
in your head
and 500 years later you will find me
in your head

let me know when it starts to come through
should be soon
let me know when it starts to come through
should be soon
should be soon
should be soon

and 500 years later you will find me
in your head
and 500 years later you will find me
in your head
Track Name: Hazy
the hills turn brown like skin
when so much sun comes pouring in on them
and i'm unwound again
i can't begin to know how to begin again

i'm young and wild and scared
of things that aren't and were not ever there
i do believe you care
but stars are hung by means of which we're not aware

if you are blue sky then i am hazy
if you say yes then i'll say maybe
if you're not here
well then i am nowhere at all

the loaded gun comes first
a quick humane disposal of the other words
in sounds so soft they hurt
you're teaching me that sometimes crying doesn't work

if you are blue sky then i am hazy
if you say yes then i'll say maybe
if you're not here
well then i am nowhere at all

if you are blue sky then i am hazy
if you say yes then i'll say maybe
if you're not here
well then i am nowhere at all
Track Name: Oz
they kinda shuffle down the street
like they borrowed their feet from a friend
and they wanna get them back in good condition
they could run if they wanted but they won't

throw a party out of fear
and watch their youth disappearing night by night
and then get high in celebration
they could run if they wanted but they won't

how do they walk so close to the edge and never jump in
how do they walk so close to the edge and never jump in

citizens of oz like flowers in a garden
finely dressed and going nowhere
too pretty to be lost too rich to be held hostage
haunted by what's really there

it's getting crowded on the roof
and everybody's much looser than they were
when they arrived in warmer clothing
they could speak if they wanted but they won't

i wanna know who wrote the script
who gave the generous gift
of empty boxes as hearts to a whole city
they could beat if they wanted but they won't

how do they walk so close to the edge and never jump in
how do they walk so close to the edge and never jump in

citizens of oz like flowers in a garden
finely dressed and going nowhere
too pretty to be lost too rich to be held hostage
haunted by what's really there
Track Name: In Closing
do you sometimes hurt for summer
when summer's been gone too long
have you ever cut off your hair
to be sure that his smell is gone
do you lock the night out with words that aren't yours
do you speed around corners and hope that you'll lose control

i once met myself in a garden
some twenty-one years ago
she looked like the me that i knew
but the eyes were all wrong
i asked for her name and she gave me mine back
and the sound of her laughing was terrible so i've been told

i never knew me anyway
that's why i'm so fond of you
but it's time this thing died
and all promises aside
you've been lovely to write to

do you lock the night out with words that aren't yours
do you speed around corners and hope that you'll lose control

i never knew me anyway
that's why i'm so fond of you
but it's time this thing died
and all promises aside
you've been lovely to write to
