Track Name: Beautiful Genius
There are riots in the streets of Mombasa
Children dying in the streets of LA
I am standing in the riot of a street light
You are sleeping in the sheets of my rain

A million stars explode into oblivion
light won’t reach us
for millions of years
A million sighs dissolve into solitude
Trading silence
for someone to hear

And
You, you, you, you
You, you, you, you
You, you, you
You’re a beautiful genius
You’re a beautiful genius

Children laugh in the swings of a schoolyard
Lovers linger on the street after dark
I am swimming in the laughter of sunlight
You are drowning in the waves of my heart

A million stars explode into oblivion
We’ll be gone
Before the world gets cold
A million miles dissolve into minutes
trading distance
for someone to hold

And
You, you, you, you
You, you, you, you
You, you, you
You’re a beautiful genius
You’re a beautiful genius

Tongues drip with revisionist history
Hypnotized by the way that you kiss me
Whisper secrets about that hands that you hold
Trading love for the lies that you told
Track Name: True Love
Hangin’ round down on 6th Street
Your halo in your hand
Slide into a backseat
with some other man
Tell me lies that are so sweet
I’ll believe them when I can

I think about you in the darkness
I think about the darkness in you
It’s true

Strawberry burns and blisters
and things you can’t explain
tight eyes and a fever
You’re whispering my name
twist me around your finger
it’s driving me insane

I think about you in the darkness
I think about the darkness in you
It’s true

Darlin’ will you please the light on
I promise I’ll be home
by morning

When you find yourself broken
And the stars above you fall
When the words left unspoken
hang there above us all
I’ll be right beside you
all you have to do is call

I think about you in the darkness
I think about the darkness in you
It’s true

It’s true
It’s true
It’s true
It’s true
Track Name: Living In Your Head
Here come the vampires
setting fire to your soul
out in the cold world
the burning takes a toll
and you need to get away
from it all
you need to find a way
to get some distance
from it all
and the planes fly to the east
and they touch down
and you climb into your bed
And you shut down

When you're living in your head
It's easier to walk around
And when the voices speak
You cannot hear a sound
Because you're screaming
when you're dreaming
I'm the king of this kingdom
And nothing brings me down
Anymore

Here come the lamplights
when the sun is going down
out on the cold streets
it's hard to get around
and you try to get away
from a girl
and you need to find a way
to get some distance
from her world
and the planes are overhead
and they move on
as you climb into your bed
No one knows

When you're living in your head
It's easier to walk around
And when the voices speak
You cannot hear a sound
Because you're screaming
when you're dreaming
I'm the king of this kingdom
And nothing brings me down
Anymore

Here comes the sunrise
setting fire to your soul
Out in the cold world
it's starting to unfold
and you need to come back
to it all
you need to find a way
to bring it all back home
And the planes are flying west
and they touch down
and you step out of your head
and you know
Yeah, you know

When you're living in your head
It's easier to walk around
And when the voices speak
You cannot hear a sound
Because you're screaming
when you're dreaming
I'm the king of this kingdom
And nothing brings me down
Anymore

No, nothing brings me down
Track Name: Existential Love Song
She said no
This is not you
but this is me
and I think I should know
If I am what I’m not
that makes it me
by default
Pretending the truth
until it all makes sense

And how am I not myself?
How am I not myself?
And she says wait
I’m confused
but that’s alright
you really couldn’t know
I can’t be what I’m not
Unless I can be
Of course

Pretending the truth
until it all makes sense
And how am I not myself?
How am I not myself?
Oh darling can we be so existential
Oh darling can we be so existential

I am me and you are we
and he and she
How am I not myself?
Him and her
and they are theirs
and lines that blur
How am I not myself?
Pretending the truth
until it all makes sense

And how am I not myself?
Track Name: Dry Your Eyes
Break like a wave on the ocean
The emotion is fleeting
it pulls with the tide
It pulls you aside
and whispers
everything’s wrong
everything’s wrong
And you won’t notice everyone leaving
Until you realize everyone’s gone

In this dream that you’re having
The fields are all on fire
Every word that you say
The truth makes you a liar
But there is no point in crying
Dry your eyes, dry your eyes

There’s disaster in the design
and every enemy mine
is a friend of yours
if you stay the course
I’ll whisper
Nothing is wrong
Nothing is wrong
And you won’t notice I’m leaving
Until you realize that I’m gone

In this dream that you’re having
The fields are all on fire
Every word that you say
The truth makes you a liar
But there is no point in crying
Dry your eyes, dry your eyes

Dry your eyes, dry your eyes
Have no worries
Have no fears
Dry your eyes, dry your eyes
Your heart is blind
Your conscience clear
Dry your eyes, dry your eyes
All things in good time
So, dry your eyes
