Track Name: Collision Courses
What do you expect me to do, when everything I do is ok?
How do I look at myself and say “Baby, were looking like a pair of wrecks

Seems like everything we do
Ends up blowin’ up a system or two
Cus you only seem to care about yourself
I feel the vanity, the well-mistaken clarity

Cus we will all be casualties
We're just trying to be polite
Find a way to see the light
This war will not set us free
We will just maintain
Collision Courses
Collision Courses

I just wanted to get to know you
That didn’t really seem to stop you
Cus you don’t listen to a single word I say
I’m just trying calm my senses, you’re not really helping out
Cus I just can’t stand the man that you see in me

Cus we will all be casualties
We're just trying to be polite
Find a way to see the light
This war will not set us free
We will just maintain
Collision Courses
Collision Courses

First time that I met you was a very wicked night
First time that I met you was a circus of my life
So what do you expect me to do
What do you expect me to do
What is it you want from me?
What is it you want?
When will we collide?
When do we wanna die?
When will we collide?
When do you wanna die?
Track Name: Concertinas (No Ease)
All the children crowd around
An open avenue
It’s that familiar spoken sound
It calls red, white, and blue
The color schemes are simple tricks
Emotionally Crass
Show them, show them we don’t need
A window to the past

I feel no ease, I feel no ease
Its peace, its peace
I feel no ease, I feel no ease
In your broken peace, your broken peace

When we wanted something we were told to take it slow
Now we see the wreckage burn
The calm we’ll never know

The memories that were given tried
Way too much forgotten pride
I feel no ease, I feel no ease
In your broken peace, your broken peace
Your broken peace, your broken peace

La TV te miente sin deseo de enmendar
La fuerza que quieres sentir
Está sin bostezar
Tratando de ocultar verdad
Las heridas lloran mas
Por tu vivir es mi sufrir
La paz servil, la paz servil
I feel no ease, I feel no ease
In your broken peace, your broken peace
I feel no ease, I feel no ease
Track Name: Lena (Blue & Paisley)
Well I was sittin' by the fireside
Barely holding on, could barely see the light
My brother's sitting with me
His eyes looking for victory
The Absinthe just kicked in

Brother, we thought we’d have a better time
Lock and set your minds on the fast lane
But now we’re alone
We wait until the weekend but it will never satisfy us

Till I’ll see you standing, calmly, with that smile on your face
With that mantle, blue & paisley,
Reigning over Budapest
When you come into my living
You will find the sweetest taste
Cus I don’t think I can stand being without you

The feeling I get when I look into your eyes is fleeting
It robs me of my peace of mind
I wish that I could tell you I was never leaving but
We both know that’s a dirty lie
They try to keep on the other side
They tried to keep me on the other side
These things that I hold on to
These promises of virtue
Keep me on the other side

Till I’ll see you standing, calmly, with that smile on your face
With that mantle, blue & paisley,
Reigning over Budapest
When you come into my living
You will find the sweetest taste
Cus I don’t think I can stand being without you

Till I see you standing calmly
With that smile on your face, reigning over Budapest
Will you cover me from misery?
Cus I don’t think I can stand, I don’t think I can stand being without you
Track Name: Time Is Tension
Time is tension
I’m clocking out today
Time is tension
I will outlive today

Left the phone under the table
They knew I’d be fine
Left the phone under the table
Tonight my time is mine

¿Donde se supone deberia estar?
¿Y donde se supone deberia estar?
La brisa de la tarde, está en los chaguaramos
La falta que me hace la gente que amamos

Time is tension
I’m clocking out today
Time is tension
I will live out today

¿Donde se supone deberia estar?
¿Y donde se supone deberia estar?
La brisa de la tarde, está en los chaguaramos
La falta que me hace la gente que amamos

Time is tension
I’m clocking out today
Time is tension
I will live out today

I will live out
I will live out today
Track Name: Alicia (City of Wonders)
When I was a young boy
I would take my guitar
I’d play on the balcony
Hoping the breeze
Would carry the sound
And sing you a melody
Now I’m a million miles away
Thinking of the beauty of the days we played
We didn’t know that it would all come to an end

Because I just wonder what streets will see you tonight
And I am envious of the rooms that will hear you laughing out of your mind

Alicia, in the City of Wonders
The Walrus laughed into the morning
The caterpillar’s pipe got us all floatin’
I wish that I could say I love you but I don’t know where you are
Alicia, I will meet you in the City of Wonders

So much time has passed since I last saw your eyes
I miss the feeling of deception when I knew that you weren’t mine
I wish I could’ve stolen a kiss, or maybe just get one last dance
I guess I was too distracted trying to find some masterplan

The amp in the balcony could not ever reach your window
And I will pray to God, Allah, Buddah, or whoever that I’ll get to see you tomorrow

Alicia in the city of wonders
The champagne flowed like mineral water
All the pretty girls have always had that power
I wish that I could say I love you but I don’t know where you are
Alicia, I will meet you in the city of wonder

(Alicia en el Pais de la Maravillas)

Alicia in the city of wonders
The champagne flowed like mineral water
Alicia in the city of wonders
All the pretty girls have always had that power
I wish that I could say I love you but I don’t know where you are
Alicia, I will meet you in the city of wonder
Track Name: Till Later (It Won't Be Long)
I see the silence in your eyes
Walking through that open door
Your head’s so high
And I am lost in the world below

Why must you leave me?
Why must we part?
Everyone that's been there
Takes another little piece of your heart

And it won't be long
No, it won’t be long
The love you give is the love you get

The people that we see today
Won’t be the same tomorrow
Don’t try and think you understand
If you haven’t been through the sorrow
The time to fight is just begun
The time to come into your own
What will we encounter
When the night becomes the dawn?
When it come into dawn

And it won't be long
No, it won’t be long
The love you give is the love you get
Track Name: Exile Blues
I was standin on and by the crossroads
Ain’t no devil come to buy my soul
Way back home they had a Revolution
Order is silence and bullet holes
Order is silence and bullet holes

Cus if you ask me where it is I’m going
I can’t tell you cus I just don’t know
I am walking down the road of exiles
Down the road that has become our home
Down the road that has become our home

Fortune comes and goes just like the seasons
And it won’t take long for y’all to realize your loss
When I’m gone

I was standing over by the crossroads
And no devil come to hear me out
Ain’t nobody want your mind pollution
No solution, but I’ll figure it out
Got no solution, but we’ll figure it out

Cus if you ask me where it is I’m going
I can’t tell you cus I just don’t know
I am walking down the road of exiles
Down the road that has become our home
Down the road that has become our home
Road is home and we will carry on

Fortune comes and goes just like the seasons
And it won’t take long for you to realize your loss
When I’m gone, cus I’ll be gone
Said that I’ll be gone
And I may not come back
Won’t be coming back
Track Name: Night Song (No More Final Destination)
Night time brings a moment of ease
Never seem to find genuine peace
Is it that our hearts were all built this way?
We toil and labor and give life away
No more final destination

Carrying totems of memories past
They could’ve been ours if we’d only had
The courage to act
Always looking for the next stop
Life on a die-roll will slowly but surely
Tear you apart

Cus I don’t know when I’ll see you again
I don’t know when I’ll see you again

Night time brings a moment of lust
Find a single love, we must
This layover life will not give us a chance
To find happiness aside from a dance
No more final destination

Far from home but so close to love
We don’t get a chance for our feelings to take us above
Always looking for the next stop
Life on a die-roll will slowly but surely
Tear you apart

Cus I don’t know when I’ll see you again
I don’t know when I’ll see you again
I’ll see you again
I’ll see you again
