Track Name: Alice
You were always practical
Though you’ve got a knack
You’re no natural
And you were always tactical
Making up for what you lack
You can’t relax at all

Mirror mirror on the wall
Who has the finest mind
Of them all?
I don’t care about your favorite album
Or how you trained your falcon
To come whenever you call.

Alice, can you fix this rift?
The past, is no time to miss
Alice, won't you sing my name
The same way your lover calls to you

Alice got the best of us
Unlike the rest of us
She always knows her name
And she could end this stupid game
Of blah blah blah
And blame blame blame

Alice, you wear the wreath
Woven with our grief
And stitched with all our shame
But there in your pink coveralls
The way your lover calls to you
Will never sound the same

Alice, can you fix this rift?
The past, is no time to miss
Alice, won't you sing my name
The same way your lover calls to you

Alice, yells tisk tisk tisk
When does class, get dismissed?
Alice, if it's in our minds
It’s time to wake us from this dream
Track Name: Time Is Falling
Hear my voice echo back into the line
So I'll listen one more time
Haven't I met you before?
Haven't I met you before?

Time is falling, fading away.
Thought I saw you yesterday,
But I must have been wrong.
But I must have been wrong.

And if the city lights go black above our heads
We'll build a dance floor instead
And we’ll dance in the dead zone
And we will be alone.

All these clocks shock us with their song
Chimes and bells and gongs
Tick tock, unlock that door
Tick tock, unlock your door

Tick tock, unlock your door
I want to talk to you some more
Tick tock, unlock that door
Tick tock, unlock your door
I have to know for sure
So tick tock talk to you some more
Track Name: All Over
I want to talk to you some more

How many ways can I say
I miss you?
How many ways can I find to say
That I miss you?
I'm covering my face in ash
It's not worth looking at
How should I show you that
I miss you?
I do

The hour is over now
I guess love will be your lover now
And you will recover somehow
Forget we've met and danced before
All over

Tap tap, we tiptoed across this floor
Tick tock, the clocks still keep the score
I want to talk to you some more

It's just like you to think
That I would be alone
Without you
Without you
But I'm not the only one
Sitting on my palms
And you can carry on
Cause we're all over
All over

And we have met before.
Track Name: Black Ship
This linoleum’s thin
The walls have moved in
And the room becomes a monster
I’m Singer-sewn in
The bed she’s not in
In seams that seem to want her

Watch as the couches creep in
The clocks wind around and unspin
This room wants her back again
And we don’t even need to know where she’s been

Rusted old frames
And paper-thin panes
And curtains to do in the day
They were here when we came
Nothing has changed
The windows still keep out the rain
Track Name: Love Machine
You and I
Ran out of room
You ran out of
So many rooms
They ran you down
And out of time
I never knew
What was in your mind

Broke me with your bumpy road
And with your narrow bed
And yet you still sit and sing
As if everything
Will be ok.
Hahaha no way
No chance at all.
The truth
Is something new
For you

So I guess
I’ll just confess
That every day
I belong here
A little less
Instead I’m more a mess
Ever since
I sent you away

I think I need a love machine.
To redefine these crooked parts
To turn the kindness in my heart
Into lust or something cruel
Or anything that is useful
For you
Something new
Track Name: The Big Goodbye
Come on if you're wrong
Come on, I know that you're right
Let's tear out all of the chapters
That we wrote before tonight

Everybody wants a second chance
But I think I'll just let it pass
I won't give credit to a happenstance
I lost you fair and square
I'd have lost you anywhere

God knows if by tomorrow
I'll even like myself at all
But I’ll have my arms around you anyway
When the morning comes along

Everybody wants a second chance
But I think I'll just let it pass
I won't give credit to a happenstance
I lost you fair and square
I'd have lost you anywhere

All the hurt in you is certain to pass
But I won’t burden you to bring it all back
And I don’t want a second chance
Don’t want to take it all and break it again
The good times have come to an end
Melodies won’t make it right
Still I sing a big goodbye

There's all these things that I could do
And every one will make you cry, cry, cry
I can't forget about you anyway
And now I don't remember why
