Track Name: Sleep Patterns
And when I sleep
there's nothing I hear inside my head.
And when I dream
I swear you're right there by my side

And when I wake
the silence is just too much to bear
And when I wake
you've gone

Good things come in twos and threes
and you were never meant to be
with someone who could make you feel that way

Good things come and good things go
and this, my darling, you should know
I would be there 'til the sunset fades away
Track Name: Floating Fast
I'll come in through your window
In silence we'll depart
We'll set out for that country road
and fade into the dark

We'll take all of their lies and buy a new life
and when there's nothing left to say we'll sing this melody

Can't you see these three words floating fast?

Surrounded by these giants
you drift into your dreams
and when the morning comes I'll wake you
from your ancient sleep
Track Name: Berlin! Berlin!
This was built to fall apart
to separate this work of art
and I will break on through to you
and I will break on through to you

Neither east nor west
but where the skies are best
and where the clouds they change
but nothing's ever the same
And through the wall
I swear I see your face
I know I see your face
Please tell me
How do you like it over there?

On the other side of this
Lies a chance I wouldn't miss
and I will break on through to you
and I will break on through to you
Track Name: La Batalla de San Miguel
I'm on the front line
on the front line
on the front line
The trumpets sing
the trumpets sing
the trumpets sing your name

So ring out,
ring out tonight
It's the end of the days we fear
It's the end of the days we fear

I'm on the front line
on the front line
on the front line
The bayonets are cutting deeper still
cutting deeper still
cutting deeper still
Track Name: Tundra
In this cold forsaken tundra
with the silence that surrounds us
I feel the chords break in the air

Now the summer's slowly fading
I'm left broken by its changes
As these mountain walls reflect your stare

And I'm going to another place
And I'm going to another place
And I'm going to another place
And I'm going to another place

Through the thick black forest
on roads that wind before us
I make my way to my new home
And I am just a chapter
of a story that will hold you in suspense or in despair
Track Name: Sing to Me
Give me something innocent
baby sing to me
baby sing to me
Give me something I can feel
when I count to three
and I'll count to three
And we'll go to the snow covered hills

This is our new language steeped in secrecy
with words that float out like bottles into the sea
This is our last getaway
Let's run while we can
Before the bottles break and fade into the ocean's sand

Tell me that your fear has left
on this autumn night
on this autumn night
The wind and rain and leaves will fade
with each passing day
right through winter's gate
And we'll go to the snow covered hills
Track Name: Stevie Nixed
The fog rolls in
and I can see the way it
beads upon your draining hourglass
that you've deserted
It's just complacency
and the lure of engaging city streets

This is an image I've yet to wash away
This is an image I've yet to wash away

The ball drops
and I just hate the way it
clouds your senses
and dulls reality
Two white shadows are blending into one
while toasters take their oaths of silence
