Living in Slow Motion

Ancient History

You were alone outside the gates looking in at all the hate around you
On your own you took the task to fix the problems no one asked you to fix
When you could take no more of this
Petty problems, endless lists
And no one ever recognized your worth

I know every time you faltered you were trying to get back to set them on an honest track
Politics and Red albums, roared up like an ancient tide but it would tear you up inside

Time’s bleeding into the stream of something you mostly dream for us

But I just can’t hold on to the fact that you’ve got an ancient past that you won’t let go

I know every time you faltered you were trying to get back to set them on an honest track
Politics and Red albums, roared up like an ancient tide but it would tear you up inside

Old Clothes

You wait walking down the corridors
I’ll fall down the ways you walked before

You take one look and you remember
The old space tell me what you want to find

Cities may come and go
Outlast everything you know

You take one look and you remember
The old space tell me what you want to find what you’re looking for
Light flash take a picture you’ll remember
Old clothes tattered torn to shreds

I see it all turning to sand

You take one look and you remember
The old space tell me what you want to find what you’re looking for
Light flash take a picture you’ll remember
Old clothes tattered torn to shreds

Different

Tip toe past this aging light
It’s time we stood by our own sides
Summer ‘s not the time of year we used to love

You said you were done with this
You were tired, you wouldn’t miss
You were going to chase dreams of your own

You’re so scared that this is all that you know

But it’s different
Yes, it’s different
It’s not the time or place for you to be scared
So scared
You don’t have to be scared
No

Everytime that you walked by everyone would turn their eyes
Everyone would turn their eyes

You could set this world on fire if it was your desire
If it was your desire

Different
Yes, it’s different
It’s not the time or place for you to be scared
So scared
You don’t have to be scared
Oh no
So scared
You don’t have to be scared
Don’t have to be scared
You don’t have to be scared
You don’t have to be scared

My Lover's Dream

Lost and lonely in a lover’s dream I search this horrid waste for her embrace
We hide from the ones we used to know, but they’re all gone their former selves

Still frozen frames of her equinox you can’t destroy the love if you wanted to
and you wish you were a better man you’d give her the love she needs if that’s what she needs

She says
Baby won’t you please give me all of your love
I can’t take it anymore from this world that is devoid of every thing that I need
I just need to be breathing
Oh

Cause I’m lost and lonely, this I know
Yes I’m lost and lonely, this I know

Lost and lonely for her embrace I search this horrid waste of a lover’s dream
We hide from their former selves but they’re all gone the ones we used to know

Still frozen frames if you wanted to you can’t destroy the love of her equinox
and you wish you were the love she needs you’d give her a better man if that’s what she needs

She says
Baby won’t you please give me all of your love
I can’t take it anymore from this world that is devoid of every thing that I need
I just need to be breathing
Oh

Cause I’m lost and lonely, this I know
Yes I’m lost and lonely, this I know
Yes I’m lost and lonely, this I know
Yes I’m lost and lonely, this I know
Yes I know

Will Nothing Ever Change

I can see the farthest oceans, frozen frames of former days
When you focus on the distance, it all seems to fade to grey
I will take your favorite memories and write them all down in a book
You will read them when it’s late at night, and it will take you it will take you away

I will take your favorite pages, and I’ll draw pictures made with crayon
Like when you did when you were young and anything could be anything
You’ve grown up, you’re older now, but you don’t see wonder in anything
You’re scared of yourself, and what you turned out to be

Don’t you act like nothing has changed
Won’t you try to find out her name
Find out her name
