Track Name: Hysteria
i really like the way you locked me out
i really like the way it’s working out
i need someone to shake this feeling now
of apathy in place of lashing out

we know
lights go out

wonder if we’ll ever see enough hysteria set it off
feeling like forever let down
cynical like you
watching people never give it up
hysterical, cyclical
seems like we already let go
cynical, a lot like you, yeah


we really got a taste for dropping out
a million miles away from thumping crowds
we still don’t have a way to keep this down
from spinning out away from who we crowned


i’m weary of hysteria

wonder if we’ll ever see enough hysteria set it off
feeling like forever let down
cynical like you
watching people never give it up
hysterical, cyclical
seems like we already let go
cynical, a lot like you

hysteria, hope finds you
cynical, a lot like you
hysteria, hope finds you
Track Name: Fluorescent City
we are the ones that have never given in
wait out the sun
we are the ones for another day
living deep down low
a song i’ve been singing through the years
sums up what i know
we are the start of a bitter end
never need to let go

in a city of playful lives
in a city that lost it’s halo
we don’t care, we don’t care
we just chase our lives around

reach out to walls that have never given in
stabilized hold
feel out the space of another day
spinning through black halls
these sounds have been ringing in my ear
drowns out what i know
to be the start of another day
living in lost love

in a city of playful lives
in a city that lost it’s halo
we don’t care, we don’t care
we just chase our lives around

don’t lose those that lift you up
don’t be so intractable
Track Name: Operator
stay out, lost amongst the new sights
go into oblivion and run wild
laid out before you lies your crazed mind
slip away from thoughts that only you know
oh, it’s so material
it feels right
alone

i came here, i can’t remember why
it’s like there’s something inside of my mind
an operator is on the line
and tells me what we can do with our time
living here

fade out, fluctuate, spin round
oh, it’s so superior to real life
go into oblivion and run wild
alone

i came here, i can’t remember why
it’s like there’s something inside of my mind
an operator is on the line
and tells me what we can do with our time

i came here, i can’t remember why
Track Name: Paradise
we’re not safe, we got out of line
we’re in the middle of a fire fight
you’ve lost yours, i’ve lost mine
it’s over

the clock takes one at a time
but in a minute we’ll be alright
the mind knows, stops time, in windows
yeah

you’ve lost yours, i’ve lost mine
it’s over

‘cause if we never all die
then nothing seems to matter, right?
and if we get to paradise
souls can’t even scatter light
as if it even matters..
i think it would be better
to stay out, to stay out, to stay out
stay outside

it’s not fate, it’s not by design
we’re in the limits of our hindsight
you’ve watched yours, I’ve watched mine
through windows
the lock breaks and we’re not confined
in a minute we’ll be outside
the mind knows, stops time, in windows
yeah

‘cause if we never all die
then nothing seems to matter, right?
and if we get to paradise
souls can’t even scatter light
as if it even matters..
i think it would be better
to stay out, to stay out, to stay out
stay outside
