We’re on our own / Our parents sit at home / We run on our cell phones / We sit and stare / You play solitaire / You bitch / You moan / American grown / And you wrote a song / That you sang once / By yourself in the dark / You don’t have a clue / How the world works / How working’s hard / Because you’re lost and found / You’re lost and found / No one is around / So I guess you’re lost for now / We ride the train / You sleep on a plane / You’re drinking in the rain / 25 / What does it mean to be alive? / Fortune and fame / A Christian name / We’ll drag each other down / When no one is around / We’re naked on the ground / Memories / I hunt like enemies / On my knees / Because you’re lost and found / You’re lost and found / No one is around / So I guess you’re lost for now / And I hope you found the thing / That’ll help you make it through / How we will ever know / What’s outside of this cartoon / Why can’t we just drive / We’ll drive somewhere new / Why can’t I just stop thinkin’ of you? / Thinkin’ of you / Thinkin’ of you / And what we used to do / And what we used to do / And I don’t have a clue / If you think of me too / I fade in your rear view / In your rear view

I’m running / Out of things to say / Into an old café / A game / A drug / A name / I’m flyin’ / High above the clouds / You open up your mouth / A face / In the crowd / People walk away / And time decays / I’m comin’ / I swear I’ll be there soon / I’m high / I’m drunk / I’m screwed / I’m alone / In a room / I see you / Walk by the bar / A candle in a jar / A silent movie star / People walk away / And time decays
Track Name: Art
Hey Kate / I froze you on the lake / A picture I took by mistake / I think you gained some weight / Out in Santa Fe / And I’ll run home / And think about that day / When we were shirtless / Craving each other’s face / And I put yours on a wall / In a gallery on / Astor Place / I’m an artist babe / Breathin’ from the grave / The world has changed / The streets have been rearranged / The blood that runs through our veins / The people who now seem strange / As they drive away / And I’ll run home / And think about that day / When we were shirtless / Craving each other’s face / And I put yours on a wall / In a gallery on / Astor Place / I’m an artist babe / Breathin’ from the grave / And I don’t wanna regret / The smell of your sweat / And your curved silhouette / And your voice in my head / August nights in bed / With a cigarette / With a blue eyed brunette / She’ll live forever on the internet / On the internet / I’m glad you’re at the show / But the curtains have to close / Now and then

Track Name: The Train
I met you in carbon copy / On the party e-mail chain / I found some recent pictures / Of your study abroad in Spain / Where you were drunk out in the rain / Walk me to the train / And I will buy you some champagne / Mix it up with OJ / And you can tell me I’m okay / Tell me you’re the same way as I am / Tell me about the Virgin Islands / We’ve seen the same movies / Blacked out on New Years / The J train / To Jamaica Bay / How long have you lived here? / And / We’re both insincere as Hell / Walk me to the train / And I will buy you some champagne / Mix it up with OJ / And you can tell me I’m okay / Tell me you feel the same way as I do now / Tell me about the bars in your college town / Your college town / Let’s get on a plane / Let’s go back to Spain / And I will find you some cocaine / You’ll call in sick today / And you know life will be okay / Tell me you wanna stay / Say what you wanna say / Wake up to another day
Track Name: Space
I’m the one you kissed out on the dance floor / Your dim reflection in my eyes / You don’t have to see me anymore / Even though you think you oughta try / But I think / Come on let me in / Take me home again / Let’s kiss each other’s skin / Come on let’s begin / The past’s a violin / That now sounds violent / Chase / The sunlight in the wind / Space / Infinity has me pinned / Again / I’m the one you met on the front porch / The moon and the stars in the sky / You don’t have to love me anymore / Even though you think you wanna try / Come on / Hop on for a spin / Paris, Rome, Berlin / I don’t care where you’ve been / Come on just say when / Whiskey, Vodka, Gin / We can drink all of them / Chase / The sunlight in the wind / Space / Infinity has me pinned / Again / Brace / About to land in a new place / You’ve been lost in space / Awake in the night’s embrace / Memories erased / Gone without a trace
Track Name: Resurrection
And you wake up / What’s around? / Around this damn town / Drink up / Force it down / Try and sleep now / Dangerous flames / It’s all the same / An endless board game / The trees all sway / Her hair turned grey / At the Chinese buffet / Life as a man / Fish in the pan / Life has a span / A life you lived in Vans / Were the children born in France? / On the beaches out in cans / It’s a day dream / A movie scene / A jolt of caffeine / A shot at fifteen / Your body clean / As you kissed Colleen / You slept on beds / You’ve messed with heads / You’ve pissed on the dead / The park where you bled / Smoked and spread / And ate buttered bread / Life as a man / Fish in the pan / Life has a span / A life you lived in Vans / Were the children born in France? / Or on the beaches out in cans / I’ll be reborn as land / I’ll sit inside your hand / It’s a new day / The sun’s rays / That wash you away / Your words are clichés / That you obey / While chemicals spray / A new life / A pair of dice / Husband and wife / American strife / Italian mice / We all pay a price
