Track Name: This is Gold
There were days, I wondered where you're going to
And if you knew my name
There were days, that I knew it could never work
And I'm so glad you came

Well I always sink, when I'm about to break
I'lll be sinking all the way
I know you'd pull me up, even though we've been stuck
Now we keep sinking all the way

Ah, I know
This is gold, this is gold
Ah, I know
This is gold.

Jumping in, the water rushes over me
Trying not to breath
Jumping in, nothing ever bothers you
I don't think you agree

We keep on watching the sky, for fear of losing the night
Keep on watching, don't turn away
I know we missed it again, we'll make believe we're all friends
Now comes the time to turn away

Ah, I know
This is gold, this is gold
Ah, i know
This is gold
Track Name: Different Endings
Distribution
Recreation
Goes through our heads
It feels as though we're dead

Tolerate them
I guess it all depends
How new is everything
How new is that

Don't think I know anyone who is left
Man Machine is on and we'll listen instead
It's ok that we're sad, it's ok, now we've slept
I'm glad it's not the last time that I will feel right

Into the storm
They've seen before
It hasn't aged that well
And they have more

Time to behave
I know you won't behave
I'll be here when you're done
If thats ok

Still don't see anyone here that I've met
Man Machine is done, I guess I'll start it again
I don't know why I'm sad, I think I'm just spent
You gotta keep on moving, gotta keep on feeling that thrill

We will end staring at the sky.
Track Name: Astronauts Eating Ice Cream
Every night, We make believe we've got this right
When the gravity is gone, We're astronauts eating ice cream cones
All we see, star swirl under me, we start fading into black
It all dissolves, we're both still enthralled, and we wake up endlessly

Pictures, better, show us, letters
If I could hold on to this, I'd be headed through this
Listen, records, find us, better
I don't think I know what to say to you
Losing, nothing, feels like, crushing
I hope we say the same thing, I still need some convincing
Words have, meaning, tumble, speeding
I don't know how to tell you they still love you

To tell the truth,I lied when I said this was boring
It's way to soon, to figure out a different story
I like the way the light reflects off your earring
I like the way you always know just what to play
Track Name: Slow Ride to Strange Towns
You found it
You look like hell
Darlin' it's all how you sell it
You won't freak out,
but it's always there
Fill the glass with nothing
It's ok I'm not really staying
You won't even wait
You won't wait

And you wonder, what peace of mind, it must feel like
You're under the trees
And you wonder, what peace of mind, it must feel like
You're thinking in dreams
And you wonder, what peace of mind, it must feel like
You're falling away
And you wonder, what peace of mind, it must feel like

They tell me I look sick and tired of it all
They tell me, you're just lost in a phase
I've seen it, you can't even try but you know
I've seen, everyone will think it's ok
You said, but I'm not a lie, and I know
We can leave it all behind
You said, but I'm not alive
You said
Track Name: 20 Years
They come near
We stay far
We are smoking under stars
Getting ready
Things get steady

In the streets
Driving cars
We will keep on getting small
They take pictures
To remind us all

Company that we keep
Helps the sun roll down your cheek

Grass keeps growing where you walk
Universe will never stop

We're intrigued by the leaves
All the worlds lie in-between

And I keep losing my mind and it's alright


I felt it all before
I feel it again
You're walking out the door
I know we'll be friends
The things I never tell
Keep me under the spell
In 20 years I'm sure
We will start again


Seasons change
We're insane
Blowing circuits, turning strange
I stop playing
Always paying

All these drinks taste the same
Keep me thinking of your name
I can't remember
I thought I knew

Turn around, on the ground
Clips of paper and a sound

Waking up forgotten scenes
Never knew happened to me

See the smile on your face
And we go back to the same place

And I'm still holding you're hand and it's alright.
Track Name: No More Love
Finally, we can jump through
I'll bleed
Lay back, just let it settle in
It's free
As we both lose control, and we will find our souls
Dying
When will we let them go, we will not let them go
In the streams

What would happen
If you loved me
What would happen
If everyone believed me
What would they do
If they all owed me
And we were slowed down
By what we can't see

What would happen if we never had to close our eyes
A thousand colors asking questions as we start to cry
What would we hear if no one ever spoke a word
Our friends and neighbors getting jealous when we see the world

Suddenly, it all breaks down
Godspeed
I've had, I've had to get around
You're with me
What did we call the world, it was the little things
We forget
I'm on the losing team, but I'm not worried now
I'll dream
Track Name: Holding On is the Best Part
It's taking over. I think it's over
We just got started. We'll let it run on out
The feeling's mutual, but then I think of all the rooftop parties.
The beers we couldn't drink
I'm seeing different shapes floating on the horizon
I'll picture this, I will picture this
I'm stealing all you know, all the music, all the shows
It's a long weekend, a long weekend

Laying back, it's the best laugh I've ever heard
Laying back, won't remember the words
Long nights brings a calm I've never seen
Long nights I keep losing the reel
Holding on is the best part of everything
Holding on is the best part of everything
We will never know how it started
We will be alone but it started

Last call conversations, getting through the mazes, it's in a fog
Strangers that make us begin to feel better about the last one
She said I didn't need it and I know that I believe it
She just pulls me a little closer asks me if we live in circles
It was normal in a way, felt like every other day
I think I know why
Track Name: Peng 33!
Curiosity was far greater than our fear
It felt so simple and so prodigious at the same time
Incredible things are happening in the world
Magical things are happening in this world

Across the river there are all kinds, magical instruments
While really we keep on living like monkeys
Incredible things are happening in the world
Magical things are happening in this world, yeah

Across the river there are all kinds, magical instruments
While really we keep on living like monkeys
Incredible things are happening in the world
Magical things are happening in this world
