Track Name: Dream
When the sun is out of sight
and the moon emits its light
When the world is a strange hue
I'll come for you

When the grounds begin to shake
and the waters dissipate
When truths are all too few
I'll come for you

For where else is your solace from wakefulness
If not when I lay with you and let you dream anew

When you close your curtains tight
tell your lover, "goodnight,"
I'll see you soon my dear
when I come for you

When the sunlight pours in
you commit your daily sin
When you see the morning dew
I'll bid you adieu

For where else is your solace from wakefulness
If not when I lay with you and let you dream anew
Track Name: Stop !
Stop ! Don’t you get it ?

Don’t you let them take what is supposed to be for you
Stop ! Don’t you take it !
Don’t you take from them what is supposed in you

Don’t run away now
Don’t run away now
You must listen to what you must
Don’t run away now
Don’t run away now
You must take in what you must take in

Stop ! Don’t you hear it ?
Don’t you hear the sound of what is being said to you
Stop ! Don’t you see it ?
Don’t you see the world’s beauty is not meant just for you

Don’t run away now
Don’t run away now
You must listen to what you must
Don’t run away now
Don’t run away now
You must take in what you must take in
Track Name: Nünü
I have my reservations,
but you won't seem to take them
Honey pie, why do you lie?

I paid the check I swear I did,
but you won't seem to hear it
Honey dear, what do you fear?

We keep turning round these tables
twirling, swirling, turning, burning
Can't get you off of my mind

But we keep moving round these tables
unfurling while I keep serving you
Honey, won't you be mine?
Track Name: Pulling Hairs
Where are we now?
From lovers to strangers
The baby in the manger

In the lost and found
The classic dangers
of human nature

Pulling hairs out one by one
Not sure when we'll be done, no
Not sure when we'll be done

Don't acknowledge me, I'll do the same
To keep me sane, to keep me sane
Why can't you see that we're the same
We're both insane, oh so insane

Pulling hairs out one by one
Not sure when we'll be done, no
Not sure when we'll be done

But oh, my darling, isn't it fun?
Not sure when we'll be done, no
Not sure when we'll be done
Track Name: Seasick
He walked alone on the shore line
No one beside him in the night
“Oh I can’t relieve my love on anyone,”
He said, to no one in sight

But oh, my dear, the end sure is near
You saw it before in your younger years
But oh, my love, theres no need to fear
Wipe from your face all those olive shaped tears

He walked alone on the shore line
No one beside him in the night
“Oh I can’t relieve my love on anyone,”
He said, to no one in sight
“Oh I can’t relieve my love on anyone,”
He said, to no one in sight
Track Name: Forget Me Now
we made other plans
with eachother’s hands
but you don’t understand
what to do now

we do nothing but joke
about how you do nothing but smoke
but I don’t understand
what to do now
Track Name: Lauren Lorelai
Your peach colored walls are closing perspectively
Thinking you may not be thinking much less of me
Talk with your hands out of no necessity
Clandestine hours push what was not meant to be

Oh Lauren Lorelai, oh Lauren Lorelai

You send me a barrage of bad puns and poetry
I send back hoping not to seem freaky
I second guess everything, everything I speak
Won’t you just stop me from ruining everything?

Oh Lauren Lorelai, oh Lauren Lorelai

In the end there is nothing, nothing left to see
Nothing left despite your memories
I’ll leave you alone, if that’s all you want from me
Silence remains to make me a mockery

Oh Lauren Lorelai, oh Lauren Lorelai
Track Name: Saoirse's
You know me you do
Sewn me anew
Shown me a truth
Forgive my youth
Forgive my youth
I know you do
I know you too
Worthless to few
Worthless to who?

I love you I do
Not to confuse
A sister or friend
Both to amend
This is not a trend
This is not pretend
My love I send
I love you my friend
Till the end

Until, until the end, the end
Until, until the end, the end
