Track Name: You
You
I’ve got your picture in a box
inside the closet with the démodé
You
I keep your letters behind the clock,
and though the ticking stopped
I know the time it is
(It is) a fundamental state we fabricate
to gauge the benefit of forgetfulness
and quantify the rest
You’re an undertow
pulling out the seeds
You commit to hide
our situation
(baby, come on)
I am overgrown –
pulling at the seams
you commit to hide –
mending your guilt till its out of time
You,
insert you covert point of view
in half truths and restrained exchange
And silence
While I dissect the content of your careful construction
(Construction is) a fundamental state we fabricate
to raise an edifice we can jointly brace –
against our better sense
You’re an undertow
pulling out the seeds
You commit to hide
our situation
(baby, come on)
I am overgrown
pulling at the seams
you commit to hide –
mending your guilt till its out of time
What are you waiting for?
(What you can’t ignore)
You move someone, then move aside
Regret your makings and proceed as blind
So blindly we go follow the guise,
just like faithless true believers make a home in lies
We’re building facades till they’re out of mind
Track Name: Dancing Queen
I know that look when you’re getting all depressed
I know what you need
You're my dancing queen
Hey, I get it when you're upset;
when you can't let go,
you put on that dress,
you kick on the beats,
and you get down to business (is)

(business) is so hard these days the way you wander
No you just can't see the light
so you fight, fight, fight
Oh but you're fighting on the wrong side
When you can’t let go
You put on that dress
to find that you're nothing but a mess.

Let it go tonight
Let the beat take over
Get up and get high
That's your answer

You’ll know the time is right,
‘cause when you feel
it cuts right to the heart,
and saying like you mean it
never seemed to be that smart
But keeping to yourself
is like a river that runs
to an ocean
in a sea
so deep and turbulent

Let it go tonight
Let the beat take over
Get up and get high
That's your answer

I know it feels your light is out
The sun's set and you might never find love,
but you're holding all the light on your tongue
So close your eyes and take a step
Open up your mouth and take a breath
Track Name: Water
When he’s on your side
he could take you home right now,
put you in the bedroom,
take you for a ride and only ever let you go
when you’re caught,
when you’re careless
And when you want it,
he’ll take you to the roof,
to the edge,
and when it matters –
it goes silent.
He will put on a show
uh oh oh
And show off what he knows
(He says)
You should follow me
I know where the water flows
But, if you need a taste,
pay up with your love and gold
But, if I knew the way,
I’d find a place where we can go
(that’s) Just like a dream
What you want, you make it
And all around
There’s enough, just take it
And if anyone should need a drink,
then we drink
‘cause there’s plenty,
but not just because
you’re looking for the setting sun
Now back in the day
mom and I’d watch the TV games
And when someone won the race,
water would come streaming down their face
And when I’d wonder why
Mom would clarify
“There’s more to life
than what you know.
There are some years
that take their toll, and
Respite is a reminder of regrets”
When nobody gets
Your love or respect
In the end you’ll pretend that you think you can’t get
Any better (all the time)
So let’s play make believe
‘til we believe
we are far from dreaming,
and what you need
is there for the taking
And if anyone should need a drink,
then we drink
‘cause there’s plenty,
and not just because,
and not just because you’re always looking for the setting sun
(oh, my love)
Track Name: Fever
I look up at the two of us
Now I know just what you see,
save an instinct that won’t subside,
which stirs the suffering in me
But it’s the same without any difference
My heart beats with a fever
The sun rises and sets in the blue
You fool,
just open up your eyes
So, I must be leaving
Well I found a way
to get paid what you get
for a little less
work.
But each step you take
gents and ladies will make
conjectures as to your worth
And it’s not worth waking up
pleasing anyone else but yourself
this time.
When all the stars in the sky
tell us where we are going
you know it’s right
to move,
and set off my love
Unashamed of this restiveness
beckoning me towards the bend,
to fold, turn, collect incidence,
but always peering out o’er the edge

‘Cause it’s the same without any difference
This fever in my chest is enough
The moon moves and changes disguise
You fool,
just open up your eyes
Well I found a way
to get paid what you get
for a little less
work.
But each step you take
gents and ladies will make
conjectures as to your worth
And it’s not worth waking up
pleasing anyone else but yourself
this time.
When all the stars in the sky
tell us where we are going
you know it’s right
to move,
and set off my love,
set off my love
(You may not get what you want,
but you get what you need
You may not get what you want,
but you get what you need.
Am I what you want, my love?
Or is there something else that you need?
Am I what you want, my love?
Or is there something else that you need?)
