Track Name: Berlin
Care to join me settle down
Ive been in the parlor for a while now
Under lock and key my intentions with an ink pen
Smiling so it seems
Then Ill ask myself
Can I consciously define
The concept of the great divide
Hope I can find the patience cause ive
Waited my whole life
To see the world
Ive waited my whole life tosee the world
Headline international casualty
Let me keep my head
Wish me well Im on my way Im on my way
Headline international casualty
Let me keep my head
Wish me well Im on my way Im on my way
Can I be so bold to say that approached it with all
Confidence
The brashness of a criminal
An oscilating love affair
Do I extol the virtues of a man so disposed
The daftness of an imbecile
They let me keep my head
Cause Ive waited my whole life to see the world
Ive waited my whole life to see the world
Headline international casualty let me keep my head
Wish me well Im on my way Im on my way
Headline international casualty let me keep my head
Wish me well Im on my way Im on my way
Im going to berlin to see if I cant make the cinema
Going to berlin to see if I cant make the cinema
Ive heard that theres an arcade in cologne
With ruby red slippered dancing girls and all
Sha lalala
Headline international casualty let me keep my head
Wish me well Im on my way Im on my way
Headline international casualty let me keep my head
Wish me well Im on my way Im on my way
Track Name: Fallout
Sound the alarm
A siren shoutin breachin the calm
Theres a line on my floor
Last exit to the world that I know
Theres panic among
All the faces that you’ve come unto love
The hills to the north
Are a kaleidoscope of unnatural calm
Theres a hole in my wall
A picture perfect view of the sprawl
I remember it all
A color wheel of trees in the fall
The flowers that bloom ya
Are a pale shade of nuclear
If Im so inclined
Ill need a moment just to sort through the times
After the fall
It will never be the same as it was
After the fall
It will never be the same as it was no
Fall out fall out
Ooh better than ashes
Fall out fall out
Ooh better then ashes
Now Im standing half awake in the starlight
Eyes blinking oh dead ringer
Just like my own, Just like my own
This is not my beautiful life
This is not my beautiful home
So unfamiliar So unfamiliar
Atomic super nova sitting heavy in the western sky
Its alright Its alright
Atomic supernova sitting heavy in the western sky
Its alright its alright
Track Name: Lily
Lily wrote me a letter she signed it with a smile
The end she said I love you
Im leaving you for a while
Ill take a space ship ride to anywhere as long as its far from here
Goodbye Charlie
Your Kindness is killing me
Oooooh ooooh oh oh
Oooooh oh ohoh
Sometimes I get cold sweats
When I sketch your silhouette, silhouette
I can shadow it later
Silhouette silhouette
I can shadow it later
Silhouette Silhouette Silhouette
Its simple now, Its Simple now
Its simple now, Its Simple now
Look alive my loves a hammer hit too heavy at times
I scratch the surface man Im so outta line , so outta line
So outta line, so outta line
Look alive youre like a killer with a switchblade knife
You cut me open hey
You cut me open
Sleep on my inside
Shes gonna run away
Cant fall asleep wont settle down now
Ive been awake ya for a while now
With stereo on I can see for miles and miles around me
Cant fall asleep wont settle down now
Ive been awake ya for a while now
With stereo on I can see for miles and miles around me
Its simple now, its simple now oh oooh
Its simple now, Its simple now oh oooh
Track Name: Little Ghosts
I heard it on the radio when I tuned in today
Your voice came out my speakers like some
Gospel sung parade
I just turned off my beroom light
So I could fall away
It takes me back to yesterday
Yesterday
I must have been ahard man always spoiling for a quarrel
I shouldn’t have been so rough on someone
So damn genuine
Not to worry baby You wont be home tonight
Your headed off to Brooklyn to see those big bright city lights
I got these little ghosts dancing in my head
They look a lot like you and me in my head
When I would dance all night alone with you
When I would I dance all night alone with you
Of all words like razors to my ears
Ill play the deaf man, Ill play the deaf man
Shes sees it all through rose colored lenses
She sees it all through cellophane eyes
And the walls were made of velvet
You got flowers in your hair
It takes me back to yesterday
Yesterday
Repeat chorus
Track Name: Orchards
Put on my plaid coat,
And walk out the front door
With all of my longings trailing in tow
Finish my whiskey
Walk out in the cold
With all my possessions
All I had in the world
I was but a boy
When they run me out of town
I put cloth to flame
Then I burned their chapel down
I saw blood on the water
Bury me on county grounds
The hallowed kind
Oh oooo ohoh
I think I ll head to the hills or a while
its cool there theres orchards
the valley are wide
An adverse disconnection
With a beautiful world
A functional dystopia
One I call my own
Certain terse inflections
When I speak of what I know
Nothin bout nothing
All I had in the world
Hollow man of nothing pictures
Renaissance at heart
Hollow man of nothing pictures
Renaissance art heart
The autumn leaves are fallin fast
Id say fall on me cause Im fallin
Fast
All twisted branches
All twisted branches
I think Ill head to the hills for a while
Its cool there theres orchards
The valleys are wide
Track Name: Radiator
There was a soft spark
From the electric light
A dull hum from the radiator
Short fuse in the television
The static is gone
The static was mine
And the coffee had come to a boil
So black
Hot as a fire, yes hot as a fire
The London fog, covered all for miles and mile and miles
Grey scale gracing the grandest towers above
You cant hide their charm
You cant hide their charm
Dare I say my devilish ways
Have dampened my opinion of this once Idyllic place
And I know, I know
Its my numb appreciation of the world
I know, I know
It’s my numb appreciation of it all
Cautious of my Karma on the floor
Its just me blededing conscience
By the vial
Nevermind the flowers on the wall
Its just me killing kindness with my love, love
Mother always said I was a charming lad
A smiling boy that kissed the girls
And watched the world pass by
I like the setting sun
Rapture in its mellow glow
Could I could I be so peculiar
Could I Could I come so undone
Cautious of my karma on the floor
Its Just me bleeding conscience by the vial
Nevermnd mind the flowers on the wall
its just me killing kindness with my love
Track Name: The Tragedy
The devil or so Ive heard a work of art
I left home for the city with an optimistic vigor
And a picture of my brother close to heart
I had to see the south land
Exquisite beyond all measure
A cautionary tale of urban charm
I listened for the ocean
Resonating softly
Like ancillary whisper in my blood
Ive always been a drifter a mercenary lover
Looking for a place to make my grave
This silver tongue pariah
I will make a beautiful corpse one day
I was labled a tragedy
They cast me off a misfit
So I heard
Contemplative contemporary
A matter of opinion so Im told
Darling Im an ordinary man
A dreamer in wasteland
Ill try and get out alive
Ive got the sentimental stare of a Zombie
Ultraviolet showing no love
Silk screen gaze of a stranger
Dumbstruck glare of the dead
I don’t mean to put my quarrels on ya
I tell you its no trouble at all
Am I drunk or am I dreaming at this terrible hour
Dawn caught me so unaware
Oh my my bless my soul these troubled waters
Trouble Im told
