Track Name: The Length of Our Love
In the backseats, old broke down cars
We find the weight of our souls to set free
Believe me, just breathe
Drive back the harmless means to end this start again
Fill in the blank space, bliss tragedy
Walk the cold streets as lonely as can be
Deceive me, just breathe
Streaming a light for the way of my decent

Won’t let it hold me, nights in this city will tear it down
As if you’ve heard it for the first time I will sing

The dream was gone, yet it looked so pretty in the pale moonlight
Long ago betrayed by my love, desire, the length of our love
Track Name: Sail Away
You move in slow, I come on fast
We play like sin, yeah you take this pass
You feel me down, so I give you up
She tastes of wine, a delicate design
Now we shine like stars, angles in time we guise about as lifeless so they know

I take the long road back
I take the long road back

Sail through the night
We’ll be resolving the sea of regret
Appearing in violet scenes
Embracing this mess slowly as you go

She moves like wind, oh she sets the sun
The eternal kiss, a labyrinth of fire
As we take our time, two lovers prevail
Starboard to rise as hearts fueling the setting sun we slow

We take the long road back
We take the long road back

Sail through the night
We’ll be resolving the sea of regret
Appearing in violet scenes
Embracing this mess slowly as you go
Sight fears the lion
In vain we carry the cross of intent, oh
Assuming in violent seas
Embracing this mess slowly as we go

Weightless I watch you fall

Take me home
Sail away, away from here
Track Name: Are We the Dining Dead?
I fear all the snakes and wolves will be headed this way now
Lighting through the streets and paths like we figured this shit out
We fear ourselves, well we feel it ourselves
It seems we are safe, have we deemed our fate?

Let’s find this place by filling our lonely lives with callous lies
We fill this space by killing the only days we had it right
I hate the way she says she loves me baby just stay
We find this place by living our lonely lives, our lowly lies in mind

I see all the memories of our time quickly fade grey
Drifting to the back of my mind covert, adept, mislaid
We erase our love, well we erase this love
Yet, I see your face; I still see your face

This is the way we talk, away we walk
Well this is the way we talk, away we walk
Meet me in Montauk, Meet me in Montauk

Let’s find this place by filling our lonely lives with callous lies
We fill this space by killing the only days we had it right
I love it when she says baby it’s live and die with regret
We find this place by living our lonely lives, our lowly lies in hindsight
Track Name: Drag a City
Behold the change of tide
The rhyme and reason for breathing
You’ve given me in this life
I find my stage, I write these pages for ages
Meanwhile you look the other way
So I stay, misplaced in a world around me with one thing to live for

Feel the waves, baby around your legs
Climbing the city walls to get to you
The blinding rays from all those sunny days
I’d drag a city down for you

The weight of the world on my shoulders
I’m kneeling, you’re adorned; you’re heaven sent
Love feels the weight of my heart’s desire

Beneath the masks we wear
The basis and motives for hiding
The honesty in our minds
I’ll lay my head; I keep your picture beside me
Meanwhile I try and find a way
So I stay, misplaced in a world around me with one thing to die for

Feel the waves, baby around your legs
Climbing the city walls to get to you
The gloomy haze from all those rainy days
I’d drag a city down for you, oh

The weight of the world on my shoulders
I’m kneeling, you’re adorned; you’re heaven sent
Love feels the weight of my heart’s desire
We fall to pieces in time

Take a leap of faith, under your heavenly gaze
Angel, I rise to you
Maybe you will have me then
