Track Name: hold still
this film is a great reminder
hold still if you choose to find her
(the rules were meant to break for me)
this tape has a different ending
(at least you made a mess of me at least you got the best of me)
old reels will resurface unique
(the rules were meant to break for me)

this film made me think the whole time
of her and her ways the whole time

hold still
hold still
(at least you made a mess of me at least you got the best of me)

this tape has a different ending
(at least you made a mess of me at least you got the best of me)
old reels will resurface unique
(the rules were meant to set you free the rules were meant to break for me)

this film
hold still

this film made me think the whole time
of her and her ways the whole time
this film made me think the whole time
of her and her ways the whole time
Track Name: the ticking clock
take my fate
and leave it outside
today
make mistakes
ignore the outcome
and wait

the awful sound kept me away
your awkward poise had much to say
the obvious result:
time wasn't decent or meant for us
the ticking clock enumerates
what our avoidance helped create
the obvious result:
time wasn't decent or meant for us
Track Name: go to sleep
go to sleep
i'll be here when you wake
later on
it will soon leave you

underneath
all the pills and the gin
later on
we will find nothing left
find and fill your place with something else
now I fill your place with someone else

my stock in your kind is dead
my stock in your kind is dead
my stock ends
Track Name: if there's time (bonus)
if there's time to sit around and explain why you are then you will
just for the thrill
if there's anyone listening you'll continue to talk if you feel
it makes it real

it's time to meet your makers online
and you'll feel invincible tonight
it's time to meet your makers online
and you'll feel invisible tonight

at home you'll always make a crowd
believe you've made somebody proud
at home you'll always make a crowd
believe you've made somebody proud

if there's time to sit around and explain why you are then you will
just for the thrill
if there's anyone listening you'll continue to talk if you feel
it makes it real

it's time to meet your makers online
and you'll feel invincible tonight
it's time to meet your makers online
and you'll feel invisible tonight

it was fine until I called and you wouldn't speak to anyone
hidden behind 1's and 0's it's easier here than anywhere
it was fine until I called and you wouldn't speak to anyone
hidden behind 1's and 0's it's easier here than anywhere
than anywhere
than anywhere
than anywhere

at home you'll always make a crowd
believe you've made somebody proud
at home you'll always make a crowd
believe you've made somebody proud
Track Name: ride home
for all the plans we made
I should have stayed and took my chances
when we were face to face
at the same place where I lost it

when we cleared the shelves
we erased ourselves

we tried
took us down a new way home
we failed
the path was always shorter alone

we could ride home on the train
we could get off at the closest station
walk an old path in the rain
leads us to your house again
we could ride home on the train
we could get off at the closest station
walk an old path in the rain
leads us to your house again

we tried
took us down a new way home
we failed
the path was always shorter alone
Track Name: the wait is over
it changes my mind
when you speak in time
to my missteps
guiding the rest

tonight i'm gonna find another bed to make
tonight i'm gonna find another path to take
tonight i'm gonna find another light to shine
tonight i'm gonna find a place and call it mine

the wait is over
the wait is over

it changes my mind
when you speak in time
to my missteps
guiding the rest

tonight i'm gonna find another bed to make
tonight i'm gonna find another path to take
tonight i'm gonna find another light to shine
tonight i'm gonna find a place and call it mine

in the end we made little progress
no one wins but everyone's talking

the wait is over
the wait is over
Track Name: control escapes us
borders are coming down
militia men defeated
first Jan steps down
then Old Joe is finally unseated

we'll write new songs
protest the lawns
let's post a blog
to incite the racists
we all believe
that things will be
better one day
but control escapes us

there's a celebration
at the right wing station
where the guns are waiting

we'll write new songs
protest the lawns
let's post a blog
to incite the racists
we all believe
that things will be
better one day
but control escapes us
Track Name: always surprised (bonus)
it's always me that lets me down
there's a reason
I build you up when you're around
because it's easy

am I a fool?
or am I reaching
to lose control
when you're around me

i'm always surprised that you never hide that look in your eyes
we're entangled in my mind
hearing your voice is keeping me poised to get up and run
forward motion to the sun

it's always me that lets me down
there's a reason
I build you up when you're around
because it's easy

am I a fool?
or am I reaching
to lose control
when you're around me

i'm always surprised that you never hide that look in your eyes
we're entangled in my mind
hearing your voice is keeping me poised to get up and run
forward motion to the sun
