Track Name: intro to
slipped into his shoes and walked away
looking for a place to stay
anywhere but home

he never thought of a reason why
all he said is one day he’ll die
and wants to find the world

and he can’t be satisfied
chasing all those leftover fantasies
reaching out into the air in case an answer’s flying by
well at least he tries
Track Name: crying for nothing
I’m scared of a million things
so scared, though I’ve never felt real pain
no real pain

I’ve dreamt of a million things
I sleep and wake up just to complain
just to complain

take it to your other friends, your head’s not for my chest
promise me you’ll never leave
always looking out the window that we call the sky
promise you that I can see

oh I’ll forever feel ashamed
all I can ever blame is my own mind
my own mind

wait until it all turns to dust
wait until it settles onto my shoulders
I’ll be older

never let them see your tears, you’ve got ranks to defend
tell me that I’m not alone
don’t confess to any fears, only money makes friends
I’ll believe whatever I’m shown

and I’ll get by with a lullaby
with a lullaby
Track Name: things they look for
feeling floating people side to side
see them drift in and out of each other’s lives
and each other’s eyes
some of their colors fading
all of them still just waiting

they wait it out though not quite always patiently
waiting on and on expecting there to be
that thing they’re all looking for
up there, on the other floor
run on to see

seeping through all our days
words that we hear them say
when they’re passing by
not one of them knows why
and all should be worth saving
from their relentless craving

and they can speak for all of us when crying out
bluntly asking what the fuck is it all about
well start with a pretty face
then sweat so that in its’ place
remains a clue
to what used to be you
Track Name: ceiling views
she wore flowers in her hair
and then forgot that they were there
she ceased to care

and as far as she’s concerned
there wasn’t much for her to learn
and then she turned around

daily fix of ceiling views
they all say that I can choose
try me. try me
watch me fail again
our very own cliché
I’ll embrace it if I may
and all the things I didn’t become today

and what of our mistakes?
just observe it as it breaks
shiver and shake

and weren’t we so close?
your scent is on my clothes
but slowly goes away

daily fix of ceiling views
they all say that I can choose
try me. try me
watch me fail again
our very own cliché
I’ll embrace it if I may
and all the things I didn’t become today
Track Name: daylight
so I fell inside a slot machine
now I’ll run and hide in our lucid dream
and the color of your face seems a little odd
now I see exactly what you see
and feel what you feel

we almost disappear. look around you
so lost but all too clear and through the sound I’ve found
that the rhythm of our breathing is synchronized
feeling is believing
and I believe in us

we’re losing daylight
but don’t fall asleep
we’re keeping our sight
already halfway through the leap
so keep calm
keep calm
Track Name: julia's fucked up world
you showed me yours
I showed you mine
then you ran out
and I’m stuck inside

it’s so cold
and you’re not here
left me alone
with all my fears

but I still miss you

gave you the gun
gave you the bullet
I never thought
that you would use it

held on so tight
and your embrace
was my only place to hide away

I still miss you
but I don’t know you

waves of your hair
trip around the sun
and I believed
I’d be the one

not just another
but here comes another few

I still love you
I still love you
Track Name: outro from
he goes on looking for
a world beyond his door
hopeful for our days
desperately wanting to find his way
