Track Name: nights like this
no more nights like this

had you known it from the first
you would not have failed to mention
had it been dished out at birth,
they'd've called it a condition.

and you feel it in yr bones,
as the day breaks with the dashes,
sing "no place like home"
as the time sets like molasses...

seems like your always on the phone
either there or somewhere underwater
zhrink 'til you're bored
gotta get up and go to work tomorrow.
Track Name: rocket city
start from the top, it is always best to start on a road
that you cannot see the end of. leave the cases cold. leave 'em in the caverns where your memories will make love.
dig. dig down to the other side of the world. maybe things'll be better there - maybe they're not so poor. try to scratch the surface, come up nervous with a headache that just wouldn't quit and feeling like yr world had split.
drive all all all all night. get to Rocket City. ditch the dull self-pity.
say hello to the rest of your life!

save yourself
so you can be there for somebody else.
