Track Name: Neon Dreams
I have a friend
on the other side of town
they're not around
when you’re not around
have a friend
on the other side of town
oh I know
whoa oh oh oh

I left my mind on the shelf
and the front door open
i went out into the sun
whoa oh oh oh oh

I know guy
he owns a house
he never leaves it
no he doesn’t get out
I know guy
he owns a house
he knows
whoa oh oh oh

I left the keys out in the sun
i left the car running
i went out into the stars
whoa oh oh oh oh

I know your dreams are haunted
but the ghosts can do no harm
I know your dreams are haunted
but the ghosts can do no harm

I left my mind on the shelf
and the front door open
i was lost in your dreams
maybe I’m haunted too
Track Name: The Ballad of James Graves
Right from the start
he fell into the hearts
of many lovers
pulling him back down
to the ground
where he came from
back to the ground
he can’t get out of

He rests his head
while he falls apart
decomposing
dreaming of lead
and smoking guns
back to the ground
he can’t get out of

James Graves
shot right through the heart
he never had
James Graves
buried in the sands
he turned into

he kept on digging
kept on digging down
in the sand
grabbing at the hands
of distant people
sinking further
down into the sand
sinking further

graves he fell
right into the void
another land
filling up with sand
and bones and blood
down into the sand
sinking further

James Graves
shot right through the heart
he never had
James Graves
buried in the sands
he turned into
Track Name: The Knowing (pt. II)
Sun in the east
rising up above the clouds
fall to your knees
kill the ones who do not bow

where will we go
i do not know
where we will go
I do not know

fault the ones
we do not need

blood on the sand
on the hands of fallen kings
lips upon the mouths
but the hands they bare no rings

where will we go
I do not know
Where we will go
I do not know

Fault the ones
we do not need

where will we go
I do not know
Where we will go
I do not know

Fault the ones
we do not need
Track Name: Ghosts of Berlin
Take me around the corner, corner
take me where you hide
take me around the corner, corner
where i tried

everybody is running, running
everybody hide
everybody is running, running
when i hide

where does the time go
where do the moments flow

everybody is lying, lying
tell me what to say
everybody is dying, dying
from what I say

take what you wanted, wanted
just take it and go
take it all before you’re gone
and I know
whoa oh oh oh oh

where do you want to go
take me there, i know
Track Name: A Drive, An Echo, The Ocean
Seeing you there
nearly blew my mind
into the banks of river
flowing right by
and by

I stood there
for eternity
you passed on through
like ghosts dancing
in the street

i stared right into your eyes
but you threw me in the river
and left me on the line to dry

light moves so slow
light moves so slow
you can see the pale glow

well the hours turned to days
and the days to years
morales wile away
and finally die

I’m sitting in the car
with the headlights on
I never knew the man
who had his high beams on

I slept upon the place he died
and dreamed about the ocean
one last time

light moves so slow
light moves so slow
you can see the pale glow
