Track Name: Daedalus
(Are you recording? I was just thinking...but we're recording now, so I'll tell you later.)

Have my back
I'm headed down a track
And I don't know how long I can stand - I can't stand it

Tell me now
Was it worth the row?
Cuz I don't know how long I can stand - I can't stand it

I'm made of pieces individually collected, cornered
Made a mockery of me, I told 'em watch me when I'm comin' up
I'm reachin' higher than a Daedalian glider
Best believe I'm riskin' wax to take a chance
To find my moment in the sun, the sun, the sun
The sun, the sun, the sun

Check me out
I'm stavin' off my doubts
And I don't know how long I can stand - I can't stand it

Turn my way
I'm fighting back today
And I don't know how long I can stand - I can't stand it

I'm showin' up to practice late; I'll grab a bat and guard a plate
I'm stayin' after for the draft, so watch me when I'm comin' up
I'm aimin' higher than a federation flier
Honest innit? Jesus willin', I'll be prayin' like a villain 'til I'm done
I'm done, I'm done - NOT

My best impression of a sentimental lesson
Was a girl who made a date to save the planet
But the planet stood her up
She took a bullet to the pitter of her patter
Dropped her younger self a ladder
Said remind me to be kinder when I've won, I've won, I've won
I'm done, I've won, I'm done

Take your time
I know I crossed a line
And I don't know how long I can stand - I can't stand it

Play it back
I've headed down the track
And I don't know how long I can stand - I can't stand it now
It now, it now
No, I can't stand it now
No, I can't stand it
Track Name: Find Your Love
Sometimes I think the reason you find me so frustrating
Is you can't bind me like one of your plays
I move away like summer - I can see it in your eyes
You know at this point we're just sugar spooning days

Cuz I got places to see
You're lovely, but I need to be free

I'm younger than I've ever been
My static's automatic, I got motors in my skin
Don't wait on me, you gotta see
There's a part of me you're blockin', so we oughta let it be
Go find your love
Go find your love
Go find your love
Go find your love
And stop needin' me

We're tearin' through each other and we're not even dating
Until I'm drunk and you believe that I'm in love
At last I told it to you straight, so why all this confusion?
My dear, you know as well as I, I'm not the one

Cuz I got places to see
You're lovely, but I need to be free

I'm younger than I've ever been
My static's automatic, I got motors in my skin
Don't wait on me, you gotta see
There's a part of me you're blockin', so we oughta let it be
Go find your love
Go find your love
Go find your love
Go find your love
And stop needin' me

I'm sorry for the way it is
I never should've held you on so long
Your voice, my verse, there's nothing worse
Than hearing words where hope has been and gone
And we'll leave it in the pages
We'll leave it in the pages
We'll leave it in the pages
We'll leave it in the pages

You follow me in cigarettes and cotton shirts
I'll bet you never broke a habit worse than I
Someone alert the Surgeon General, I need a crossbones label
I'm matching Eris, though I swear I didn't try

Cuz I had places to see
You're lovely, but I need to be free

I'm younger than I've ever been
My static's automatic, I got motors in my skin
Don't wait on me, you gotta see
There's a part of me you're blockin', so we oughta let it be
Go find your love
Go find your love
Go find your love

I'm younger than I've ever been
My static's automatic, I got motors in my skin
Don't wait on me, you gotta see
There's a part of me you're blockin', so we oughta let it be
Go find your love
Go find your love
Go find your love
And stop needin' me
Track Name: Working Steady
I'm emptier than anybody ever said that I would be
This honeysuckle doubt is clingin' deep into the spine of me
And even though I'm movin' fast and stayin 'on track
I keep lookin' back, I keep lookin' right back

Cuz everything is harder than I ever thought possible
And nothin's gettin' easier, and nothin's lookin' probable
I'm outa breath and achin', but I still got more to show
Is this how it goes? Is this the way it goes?

I - I never know what to say
I never know what to do
I just keep tryin', keep tryin'
Keep tryin', keep tryin'
Keep tryin' - keep pushin' on through

The younger set is lucky and it's killin' me to tell 'em so
I'm eaten up with envy, growin' steady to an overflow
I'd kill it if I could, but bein' hungry makes it sure
That I want it more, I want it so much more

Cuz I been workin' steadier than Rosie with her riveter
And luck has never loved me, though I try my best to signal her
My enemy's internal, and I fight it as I can
Got no better plan, this is a do or die plan cuz

I - I never know what to say
I never know what to do
I just keep tryin', keep tryin'
Keep tryin', keep tryin'
Keep tryin' - keep pushin' on through

I - I never know what to say
I never know what to do
I just keep tryin', keep tryin'
Keep tryin', keep tryin'
Keep tryin' - keep pushin' on through
Keep pushin 'on through
Keep pushin' on through
Pushin' on through
Keep pushin' on through
Track Name: Trigger Warning
Did you imagine - ooh
That a kiss contains a promise, a caress an I.O.U?
Did you imagine - ooh
That to stop was a suggestion, and a no means that I want you?

We met on a hill by the mouth of a friend
I left my caution at home; you had a casual in
We made a plan, set the date, I thought that I would be safe
You bit your tongue and held your sin 'til you were sure you would win
And I a fool, too sweet to see, and several sheets to the wind
You pulled me back into a kiss - I didn't think to resist

Did you imagine - ooh
That a kiss contains a promise, a caress an I.O.U?
Did you imagine - ooh
That to stop was a suggestion, and a no means that I want you?

I should've run before I heard the clicking latch of the door
There's not a woman born who's ready for what you had in store
Surprised, I froze, but still you rose - I moved too slow to escape
When I left I thought my heart would beat a hole through my chest
And all alone I'd feel the oxygen abandon my breath
And it was days before my lips could find the frightening phrase

It started off all right
And after all, I had a hunger for a love for a night
Bruising in the morning, I knew
That bullets couldn't break me like your fingers could do

Did you imagine - ooh
That a kiss contains a promise, a caress an I.O.U?
Did you imagine - ooh
That to stop was a suggestion, and a no means
Did you imagine - ooh
That a kiss contains a promise, a caress an I.O.U?
Did you imagine - ooh
That to stop was a suggestion, and a no means
A no means that I want you?
Track Name: In the Bright Daylight
I heard about it today
It looks like you've found a girl
Don't know her face, don't know her name
I've got no right to comment anyway

It's strange you were on my mind
To dream about you after all this time

If things had been different
We'd get it together and add a chapter to our story
I meant what I said, but
It's a lie if I told you that I don't miss you in the morning
In the bright daylight - the sun reflecting prisms in your eyes
In the cool moonlight - your chest projecting rhythm in your sighs
But it all stayed
It all stayed behind

In truth, I knew it was done
A year before I left you on the bricks
Pretending that I could move on
Years later, still, I'm writin' you these songs

I'm sure you two are happy as hell
Forgive me for not feelin' it as well

If things had been different
We'd get it together and add a chapter to our story
I meant what I said, but
It's a lie if I told you that I don't miss you in the morning
In the bright daylight - the sun reflecting prisms in your eyes
In the cool moonlight - your chest projecting rhythm in your sighs
But it all stayed
It all stayed behind

And it's been gone for a while now
But I still remember how you looked at me, that lazy little smile
I know it's too late, and I take my finger off the dial

If things had been different
We'd get it together and add a chapter to our story
I meant what I said, but
It's a lie if I told you that I don't miss you in the morning
In the bright daylight - the sun reflecting prisms in your eyes
In the cool moonlight - your chest projecting rhythm in your sighs
But it all stayed, it all stayed
Yeah, it all stayed, it all stayed
But it all stayed, it all stayed behind
Track Name: Making A Break [Explicit]
Every time my soul's been ragged run
Your fingers point to all I could've done
Could've, should've, would've done it all
My heartbeat's set to break against my palms

So it's time for me to move on
I've been holding back for too long

I'm setting down, I'm signing off
Slipping my card back from the clock
I'm letting go, I'm movin' out
Taking this fight to the final bout
I haven't got a lot, but if I miss this shot
I'll kick myself for clippin' it, go skippin' down the sidewalk
It's the chance that I take
Makin' a break

Late nights tied to schoolbooks in the dark
My mind's a string, but still you're pullin' hard
The best, the worst, you never could pick one
Whichever one I am, I'm set to run

Cuz it's time for me to move on
I've been waiting on approval far too long

I'm kickin' off, I'm steppin' back
Setting this train on a dead-end track (You'd say I'm skewed)
I'm steppin' out, I'm subbin' in
Huffin' up a shot of pure oxygen (This shit's nothing new)
I wasn't made to fight, but if it feels this right
I'll don a bloody glove and play the kitten in a cat fight
It's the chance that I take
Makin' a break

It's been easier to lie than tell you where I stand
Got a good girl streak that's lighting up the life lines in my hands
Pass judgement all you need, perhaps your fears are true
But I want this life I have, and I can't live it all for you

I'm setting down, I'm signing off
Slipping my card back from the clock (You'd say I'm skewed)
I'm letting go, I'm movin' out
Beating this fight to the final bout (This shit's nothing new)
I haven't got a lot, but if I miss this shot
I'll kick myself for clippin' it, go skippin' down the sidewalk
It's the chance that I take
These are the chances I take
Makin' a break
Makin' a break
Track Name: Sleepless
With sleep far away, he retreats to his mind
Thumbs through ideas buried deep inside
No one cares to see
He's always taking care behind the scenes

Night never fails to unhinge these dreams
He pulled back the wraps, and got caught between
Has no way to hide
It's always up to him to change the tide

And he's tired, he's tired, he's tired

Still he dreams on, eyeing lights sometimes
He won't ask why, he just holds his stride
Fear won't keep him still
He's gone too long to lose his strength of will

But he's tired, he's tired, he's tired

And he's tired, he's tired, he's tired
And he's tired, he's tired, he's tired
And he's tired, he's tired, he's tired
And he's tired, he's tired, he's tired
Track Name: Oxygen
I can't shake the memory of sharing oxygen
And I can't shake the idea of what might have been
I remember stars
And I remember sparks

The only time you seemed to notice me
Required liquor bottles for your company
Yeah, I set it up, but you began that kiss
Even at that second I could tell there was a difference

Between the way I feel when I look in your eyes
And the look you get when you're starin back in mine
Yeah, I know by now you didn't want me long
But I can't go halfway, I know I come on strong

I can't shake the memory of sharing oxygen
And I can't shake the idea of what might have been
I remember stars
And I remember sparks

I can handle a no, but not a touch and go
If you were lookin' for space, you coulda told me so
Instead of playin' me like Skinner, up your honesty
Though we're both at fault, it's simple courtesy

Cuz the way I feel when I look in your eyes
Is like a dew-drop drunk, and I get a contact high
Yeah, I know by now we wouldn't last too long
But I can't go halfway, I know I come on strong

I thought a couple talks would cool it off
But you're still treatin' me like MDC, and babe, I've had enough
Cuz I was fast, attached, wanna take it all back
But that's an easy out, and you won't give me that

Cuz the way I feel when I look in your eyes
Didn't vary all that much, but now I've reaIized
Yeah, I know by now I shouldn't wait so long
I couldn't go halfway, I know I come on strong

I can't shake the memory of sharing oxygen
And I can't shake the idea of what might have been
I remember stars
And I remember sparks

I can't shake the memory of sharing oxygen
And I can't shake the idea of what might have been
I remember stars
And I remember sparks
Track Name: What We Want feat. Watsky
I'm gonna do what I can do and do, do what I can do and do
I'm gonna do what I can do and do, do what I can do and do

You act like this is how it is
Draggin' at us like unfiltered cigarettes - it's common sense
But things have changed before
We've broken ceilings, now we're breakin' down the door
We're after more

I've had enough of waitin' for a man to say I'm decent
Pay attention, put your head up, and stop playin' with your *****
We want a share in power, it could go to better use
Than oppression, misconception, segregation and abuse

I'm gonna do what I can do and do, do what I can do and do
What you can do
What you can do
What you can do
What you can do

Well, you can have your day in court
But we're the jury, and your trial'll be short
See, this is war
Yell about it all you like
This irritation has been flowin' down the pike
And now we strike

I'm ready for a world where I can walk alone at night
And when I go to watch a show, not every character is white
Centuries go by, and still we're lacin' up our gloves
Lashin' back inside a fight I swear to God you haven't won

I'm gonna do what I can do and do, do what I can do and do
What you can do
What you can do
What you can do
What you can do

Yes, the going may be slow
But the more we move, the less left yet to go

[Watsky]
Screamin' in the mic but all I hear is feedback
Batter batter better hit me in the kneecap
Give me payback, tie me to the train track
Every soul's another needle in the haystack

We want the right of way
We want it right away
We want a brighter day
But then we light a stick of dynamite and drink a jug of cyanide
But I'm aware there's gonna be a price to pay

I'm gonna do what I can do and do, do what I can do and do
I'm gonna do what I can do and do, do what I can do and do
What you can do (ah)
What you can do (ah)
What you can do (ah)
What you can do (ah)

I'm gonna do what I can do and do, do what I can do and do
(Do what you can do rep.)
I'm gonna do what I can do and do, do what I can do and do
(Do what you can do rep.)

What you can do (do what I can do and do)
What you can do (do what I can do and do)
What you can do (do what I can do and do)
What you can do (do what I can do and do)

I'm gonna do what I can do and do, do what I can do and do
I'm gonna do what I can do and do, do what I can do and do
I'm gonna do what I can do and do, do what I can do and do
I'm gonna do what I can do and do and do
I'm gonna do what I can do and do and do
I'm gonna do what I can do and do and do
I'm gonna do what I can do and do and do
Track Name: Dear John
Scenery change, calling hands to the stage
Moving slow, wearing black
Checking times, swapping tracks
Comfortable now - all that's left is the bow
One by one, playing through
On the edge of a cue

Will you stay here with me?
Play one long-standing melody?
I won't mind
I've got time

Hopes reappear when the call becomes clear
Hanging on by a thread to a man all in red
Grinning a grin, take your time to come in
Writing fugues secretly on the bend of your knee

Will you stay here with me?
Play one long-standing melody?
I won't mind
I've got time

Wheels to the ground, humming tunes without sound
Rolling on out of sight, running risks with the lights
Telling me true - what is left yet to do?
Fingers fly through your mind pulling strings left behind

Will you stay here with me?
Play one long-standing melody?
I won't mind
I've got time
I won't mind
I've got time
I won't mind
I've got -
