Track Name: Thirtysomething
good thing you remember every detail
about the little things that make no sense
good thing is it can't be broken
by the many things that keep you up at night

oh yeah, there is something
there's something about the way she walks
it haunts you at night
oh yeah, thirtysomething...

there are little things like airplanes
hurricanes and traffic lights
it's a passing train, just a phase
and everything is coming down

there's a glimmer in your eye, it's a red light
there's a glimmer in your eye, it's a big lie
you used to shine like silver in the night
you were like an airplane, you were like a hurricane and i...

i'm just a shadow
a ghost of what i used to be

oh yeah, there is something
there's something about the way she walks
it haunts you at night
oh yeah, thirtysomething is on your mind
and when the feeling is right...

you dance, dance, dance and you're celebrating
everything once black is now illuminated and bright
like a shining light, like a summerbreeze when the door is open

there's a glimmer in your eye, it's a red light
there's a glimmer in your eye, it's a big lie
you used to shine like silver in the night
you look like an airplane, you look like a hurricane and i...
Track Name: Sister
sister won't you listen, oh won't you listen
you had sunshine if only for a day
you had em all, the whole system, wrapped around your finger
and i had nothing you made it go away

you, you know i tried about a million times
seem to lose my mind within the next time

here's a little secret - i've been trying to reach you
but you were not there, no you were far away
trying to connect the constellation, it's been a pain in the ass now
now i'm nothing you took it all away

you, you know i tried about a million times
seem to lose my mind

she had ways to do anything and make it go away
she has plans too, a miracle about to go away
she waits too

let's get the record straight
into the heart of the heart
and get it beating like before
(make it go on and on)
Track Name: Wrecking of the Day
got up early to the sounds that you make
my eyes still closed i start forensing my own way
i shuffle my feet to looks of the people looking pretty
waking up i find myself on the wrong side of the street
on the wrong side of the street
on the wrong side of the street

stand up straight and feel the wrecking of the day
all colors on the screens are turning grey
there are voices in my head saying you're so pretty
i can't wait for the city
i can't wait for the city

i'm drawing 666 from the passenger's sigh
graffity now and then from here to when it really calms my mind
i'm drawing 666 from the passenger's sigh
graffity now and then from here to zen it really calms my mind
Track Name: Sound of Sirens
go back by number nine
you can get to the afternoon
in the favorite, favorite memory
someones you like, someones you don't
back in the favorite, not in the in-between
someones you fear someones you don't

go back by number nine
you can get to the afternoon
in the favorite, favorite memory
someones you like, someones you don't
back in the favorite, not in the in-between
someones you fear someones you don't

running through your a-to-z
words like pictures of you and me
windows vibrate, a storm is coming
running through your a-to-z
words like pictures of you and me
the sound of sirens is even better

the sound of sirens
the sound of sirens
the sound of sirens is even better
Track Name: Down a Memory
fell asleep
on a mountaintop
pictures and slides
down a memory
gets you nowhere man
from a hillside
lead the way
lead the way

fell asleep
on a mountaintop
pictures and slides
down a memory
down a memory

through siberia, california
with a suitcase, without sleep, for the wrong case

can't get higher, think it's insomnia
think it's cuckoo, through the streets, looking for you

through malaysia, caribbean
without glory, through the heat, to the morning

i'm no lier, i'm no dreamer
without notion, through the sea, to the ocean

through siberia, california
with a suitcase, without sleep, for the wrong case

can't get higher, think it's insomnia
think it's cuckoo, through the streets, looking for you
