Track Name: Meridian
The moon looks like it wants to sing
A lullaby
And I am glad I opened the door
And I went out

We roamed the streets every week
And I knew every corner
Now I am back alone watching the city from above
The city's full of snow
I don't mind at all
I know where we lived

Couldn't see anything but sadness in your eyes
Didn't know it'd be so hard to leave the room
I was on my way when I realized
It meant a lot to us

I have a ticket in my hand and it's got my name
On it
I am back alone watching the city from above
Your voice reminds me
There is a world outside
The glow in the dark night
Track Name: Scott
Remember the last day you spoke, spoke of the weather
Spoke of the weather and walking alone at night
I didn't know much about anything but
I didn't wanna spend the rest of my life just thinking about the things I'd done
I know you can sleep it off but I'm a girl that needs to fight
I don't wanna spend the rest of my life just thinking about the things I've done
I know you can sleep it off but I'm a girl that needs to fight

I'm standing at the station
I know I can be patient
I am being patient
I am being patient
I don't wanna spend the rest of my life just thinking about the things I've done
I know you can sleep it off but I'm a girl that needs to fight

I'm standing at the station
I am being patient
I'm waiting for salvation
Still waiting for salvation
Track Name: In a Cabin
An impassioned speech
Helped you to get further
Not to stop it here, stop it here
A neat whiskey's what you drink

You still profess your hatred of love
Well I don't trust you much, I don't trust you much
You still profess your hatred of love
Well I don't trust you much, I don't trust you much
You're captured in a cabin, let's call it your home, let's call it your home

You make a fire
Every other day and night
There is cold inside, cold inside
And then you start the fight

You still profess your hatred of love
But I don't trust you much, I don't trust you much
You're captured in a cabin, let's call it your home, let's call it your home
You're captured in a cabin, let's call it your home, let's call it your home

You're captured in a cabin, let's call it your home, let's call it your home
You're captured in a cabin, let's call it your home, let's call it your home
Track Name: Living Apart Together
Learned some history
I never got the meaning
I feel I'm too far from what it means
I'm too small to judge, why don't we call it a night?
I get lost in the past
Whenever, whenever I'm around

I am bad at memorizing streets
Being lost in translation is real
And I don't wanna teach you wrong or right
There is not enough time
And it is the reason why I'm wandering

I won't let you go when you're not sure
I won't let you go when you're not sure
Track Name: Triffid
Odd shaped rocks carved out by, by the water and wind
It took a long time, took a long time to get here
Much more longer for it to look like this
We stayed at the motel
Much more longer for it to look like this
We stayed at the motel

Partly a nostalgia trip
It's been on my mind
A nostalgia trip
It's been

The ocean washes the shores
But can't wash out your
Memories of being a fool
Of being a fool

Look, for this trip we will need, we will need a map, dear
It's back country, back country and might be weird
We don't know anything about how long the light
Lasts there, but that's the spell
We don't know anything about how long the light
Lasts there, but that's the spell
Track Name: Flowers
Slowly making it to another day
Birds asleep but will be awake
A paper in a mailbox, I know it's Saturday
Weirdos riding horses in our neighborhood
Children on the streets catching butterflies and fame
It's autumn
We're close to snow and winter

And I'm sure we never wanted to know anything about it
The more you know the more you hurt
Why talk about it
Why not to let these treacherous fears
Stay behind
But ain't it fun now
To talk about it
Especially when the crescent moon is high
And ain't it fun now
To talk about it
After a long long walk

Oh my heart is almost a letter bomb
But I'm stronger than you will ever know
I'm always the girl you've met before
What if I'm only dreamin'
I'm only dreamin'

Flowers from yesterday

Sitting in a chair swinging my own way
I woke up and felt pretty lame
The dinner's on the table but no flowers today
Meadows and their beauty, they are far away
The town is being swallowed by sins and all the rage
Just one night
We're close to snow and winter
Track Name: Valencia
The town might be
Stealing our memories
Want to sell them to another one
I'm afraid that this is how it starts and she thinks the same
Well I hope it will stop one day

I'm surrounded by people losing their minds
But trying to survive
I'm surrounded by people losing their minds
But trying to survive

We live the small stories but they are bigger on these few kilometers
I'm tired of people trying to make a fool out of me
Will they ever answer?
Or is there any chance, or is there any chance to save the town?
Or is it a hurricane, or is it a hurricane that's coming down?

I'm surrounded by people losing their minds
But trying to survive
I'm surrounded by people faking their love
And trying to survive
Track Name: Rotten Grapes
And it is a weird story to tell
You can cover your face with a mask and watch the sunset
Glitter is on the floor and on your face
You are hiding inside a gown, letting the men pass by

You think that he is gone
He can handle the truth
You know that he'll get hurt
But he can handle the truth

Weird stories aren't just weird stories
If I told you their silly names, you wouldn't sleep so well
You hate how slow your life can get
You can cover your face with a mask, go where the rainbow ends

And I wish I could say that we are thin on the ground
You enter the room and you can see the whole town
You are standing waiting and you're on your guard
You are standing waiting and you're on your guard

Weird stories aren't just weird stories
If I told you their silly names, you wouldn't sleep so well
You hate how slow your life can get
You can cover your face with a mask, go where the rainbow ends
Track Name: Soggy Years
He said he wished there was a better reason
To like the rainy days
There is another one with a big smile
It was more about losing an identity
I have read about or you have
I won't let it go for a shitty show

Do you ever wonder how the hell we showed up here?
I suppose it's one of the questions you don't wanna ask
Or maybe you do but you'd let the answer disappear
As well as you'll disappear

There is another one with a big smile
There is another one with a big smile
(I won't let you help me
I won't let you help me
When I'm old)
Track Name: Resurrection Song
The early morning light
I'm sitting at the window gazing dreamily
The gatecrashers knocking on our door
Telling us there is another war

So we open up a beer
And watch our favorite movie
We listen to our favorite band
Singing about love and pain

We dream about the road
Cause we made sure we'll see places before we go
The brief message decided for us
Since this summer is nearly out

So we open up a beer
And watch our favorite movie
We listen to our favorite band
Signing about love and pain

The road is full of crosses
And full of the two men rushing
Who'll get to the flesh
One will be a winner and the other one a runner up
To feed a family

So we open up a beer
And watch our favorite movie
We listen to our favorite band
Signing about love and pain

We engage in a long talk
We knew they'd return back to town
We linger in our green yard
Longing to slow down the time
Track Name: Lovers
You'd like to leave again but he doesn't know
You'd like to change the time you've become too close
You keep the memories
I burn them down

And lovers are still the same
Lovers are still the same
Lovers are still the same
Lovers are still the same
I've lived in some places and in the end
I am just a fool, I am just a fool
You keep the memories
I burn them down
Over and over again
You ask what's right

And if lovers are still the same
If lovers are still the same
If lovers are still the same
If lovers are still the same
If some of them are made of stones
If some of them are made of stones
If some of them are made of stones
If some of them are made of stones
