Track Name: The Golden Age
I blend these colors and shades
Paint only the simple things and spend my time regurgitating lines
Spewing them out my insides
I swear it’s only these few practiced words I’m good at and now I’m
Tongue tied again
I’ve been trying to remember those nights
When all I had was $1.75 and the gaslight was screaming at me
I never saw the sunset in the west but it’s all the same
And if I could spend one more minute with you I wouldn’t do it again
I won’t do it again because when you’re on that plane
I’m not seated, I’m not sitting next to you.
Remember when I said, “California isn’t safe enough for the two of us”
She says “The earth will eat us all into the bay”
And that’s what she said, so face it
Track Name: Last Call
Walking through the streets with empty pockets and a cough to go along
With a blurred point of view
I’m passing churches on my left
Along my path I find every inch of this sidewalk inconveniently dead on
As my steps repeat again and again
So I make my way back home, have no need for a stereo
I’ll just listen to a full moon tapping along with my shoes
Every time I look up I see the same old light posts
They cover me whole and I’m on top of my own world
Will I be just like you when half the coast wakes up?
This light is not all right but it keeps me safe
I’m spending all my money on cheap alcohol to forget that night
Some day I will get over it and I know I will be all right
These same old songs keep playing on
This is the last call for us and we will be all right
Track Name: Satellites
I can taste the air and it’s obnoxious to my tongue
Where’s the summer that I once knew?
I want to feel like a new pair of shoes unscathed and not broken in
Because every day there is a new sun arising
I hate every fucking morning
I feel so robotic

My mechanics are flawed
Don’t you know I want to feel like a satellite and search the world with you?
You can try and shoot me down
Give it your best shot; I want your best shot
I am lost and I need some guidance
Come share the sky with me
