Track Name: Beautiful Darkness (Suburban sounds)
In the city streets
Where you first found your peace
With all the troubled dreams
Tangled at your naked feet

There's a terrible storm cloud around your head
It's taking over our hearts

It starts so small
Then the black water breaks around you
When you lose your head like that
I get so scared
Sometimes

There's a beautiful darkness inside your head
It's taking over our hearts
It's taking over our hearts

When you walk into the middle of the city there is no one
Though you try to keep your head above the water you are drowning

There's a terrible storm cloud around your head
It's taking over our hearts
Track Name: Quiet Love (Household sounds)
I'm alright being alone for a while
With window panes and a comfortable rain
I'm alright drowning my head in it all
A thunder storm is good for the brain

Moving slowly
Barely breathing
Ours is a quiet love
Why this vacant,
Fixed expression?
Ours is a quiet love

But I won't be leaving my heart in the flood
A broken heart is stronger than none
So don't ask me to color in my world with your name
A lonely love will bury the pain

Moving slowly
Barely breathing
Ours is a quiet love
Hold me gently
Palms wide open
Ours is a quiet love

Moving slowly
Barely breathing
Ours is a quiet love
Why so vacant,
Fixed expression?
It's only the end of the world
Track Name: No Conversation (Office sounds)
Cornered in by conversation
Drowning out the foreign words
I can hear the distant whispers
I can feel the nameless voices

Searching every name and whisper
For a friendly face
Finding none

We don't need more confrontations
We don't need your hesitations
Here

Swallow every hidden comfort
By the face that pulls you in
Searching every name and whisper
For a clean escape
Finding none

We don't need more confrontations
We don't need your hesitation
We don't need more conversations
We don't need your hesitations
Here

Do they send you out
On your own again
Into the driving rain
Better hold me down
Wait for the warming sun

Oh the talk goes on
Oh they send you out
Into the driving rain
Better hold me down
Wait for the warming sun

We don't need your conversations
We don't need your hesitation
Here
Track Name: Girl I Knew (Kitchen sounds)
We're older now
You stumble through the room
You're angel bright,
Electric blue,
Each labored breath
The girl I knew
Each labored breath
The girl I knew

We're colder now
Stumble...
Your ancient eyes
Hollowed through,
Each aching bone
The girl I knew
Each aching bone
The girl I knew
Track Name: Machines (Industrial sounds)
When the hour wraps it's fingers
'Round the bones of your skinny wrists
Will they spin us ugly stories
From the ash and dust of our lowly blood?

Communicate your fault
If it doesn't break your heart
I know what you have done
I know...

Does it build up all around you?
Do you buckle beneath the weight?

I know what you have done
I know what you have done
I know what you have done
I know...
Track Name: A Silent Car Ride (Traffic sounds)
We pull remaining fragments
Sunk deep inside our bodies
Of pointed words we both regret

Then retire to the choirs
Of wicked, stubborn silence
Till rescued by the stereo

Tugging at the strings that pull apart
The pieces of your photogenic heart
Does this make sense?

Eyes firm and standing sentry
Through crenellated temple
Nothing breaks your fortress walls

In tearful tones you whispered
Your bitter revelation:
Kiss me or we'll turn to stone

Tugging at the strings that pull apart
The pieces of your photogenic heart
Does this make sense?
Track Name: A Dream of You (Wind & rain sounds)
I dreamed of you today
You felt so far away
What more do you want me to say?
I dreamed of you today

When the daylight breaks
I let you fade away
What more do you want me to say?
I dreamed of you today

Putting your beautiful brain in a box
Putting your beautiful brain in a box

I dreamed of you today
We felt so far away
What more do you want me to say?
I dreamed of you today

Putting your beautiful brain in a box
Putting your beautiful brain in a box
Putting your beautiful brain in a box
Putting your beautiful brain in a box
