Track Name: Red Light
This room is filled, if not for a passing chill,
With the years of our lives we have yet to see.
Where all the songs we once knew and felt,
But never wrote all rest in pieces.

The nights that we hinged on doors,
Of a world unsecured and left unlocked.
We never waited.
We never knocked.

The days of our infinite, feelings indefinite,
When all that’s left is infinity for me.
We breathe deeply.

Hes’tant fumes breathed between me and you,
When I am quite lost.
Leave our homes in the thick of the night.
We won’t serve an eternal red light.

Let’s make an escape from right and from wrong,
to a place, a place, a place where we belong. Where we belong.
Where the clear air turns clear thought,
Where I finally find the time, the time I sought.

So let’s give up our dreadful fate.
Waiting for you to call too late.
I won’t wait! I won’t wait!
We’ll give ‘em our “Famous Lasts”,
So when the moment is passed.
And gone. And gone. And gone.

We breathe it in tomorrow, and we forget all the sorrow.
We breathe in life. We breed it right. When we breathe in life, we breed it right.

I’ll miss you when these years are gone.
Track Name: Simon
So I’ll tell you a story,
About a love that I lost.
It gets colder in the summer,
And in the winter, loses warmth.

Set in a dry September,
Before our tears ran over.
In bitter times, of dampened thighs.
When the world could be her lover.

She said, “Son, why don’t we run?
Until the stars have left us.”
He never crushed a single hope she had,
But in her dreams, behind the lust, we sang...

“(I don’t know why you feel the way you do)”
“Oh oh, woah oh...But you won’t take me with you.”

And they passed every wasteland.
From hometown bays, and hill to hill.
But he fell in love with the city,
While she found the road’s fatal thrill, they sang...

“(I don’t know why you feel the way you do)”
“Oh oh, woah oh...But you won’t take me with you.

I’ll be the same no matter what you call it.
I’ll be the same and don't you forget it.
I’ll be the same no matter what you call it.
I’ll be the same and don't you forget it.
