Track Name: New York City
I was told that I could leave
I was told that I could see
But I was blind before I left the room
I was told that I could bleed
From these old pores underneath
But my skin’s grown far too cold
No, I guess I don’t need icebergs anymore

Oh, anymore

My friend he had his own shop
On the corner of a block
In the town where we were born
He sold caffeine by the pound
The people swarmed all around
It was an addiction we couldn’t let go
Oh, I guess we don’t need Starbucks anymore

Oh, anymore

We had our different beliefs
Oh, you believed in the trees
And I believed in something less tangible
I said we could move far away
You said “no, let’s just stay
and we’ll just start with what we know”

So, I packed up by bags
I headed straight for the tracks
I decided on New York City
Where the lights were the stars
And the graffiti’s the art
You asked if you wanted someone to hold
No, I didn’t need a lover anymore

Oh, anymore
Track Name: Loose Ends
We were out in a field when we felt the earth shake
We were sleeping a lot when we thought that life was fake
We were smoking a pack when we knew that time could wait
We were tying our shoes when we should have been running away
Far away

Oh, tell me, tell me, tell me, is the world lost without its moon?
And will we, will we, will we, find our own way across the blue?
Because I can’t, I can’t, I can’t withstand shipwrecks anymore
But you can, you can, you can do anything you want
But you can, you can, you can do anything you want

We were singing too much when we should have been talking for days
We were swimming in baths when we could have been floating in lakes
We were caught in a storm when the clouds turned dark with hate
We were having a duel when you turned and just walked away

Oh, tell me, tell me, tell me, is the world lost without its moon?
And will we, will we, will we, find our own way across the blue?
Because I can’t, I can’t, I can’t withstand shipwrecks anymore
But you can, you can, you can do anything you want
But you can, you can, you can do anything you want

Do you want to move on? Are you packing your feelings?
Is your heart in a box? Is it dead or still beating?
Are you afraid of the time it takes to heal?
Are you afraid of the words that weren’t revealed?
Could you give it some time to show that you’re there?
Before the loose ends can’t be repaired

Are you living alone? Do you want some company?
I’ve been on my own, I can’t say I’ve always wanted to be
There are the nights when I drink to forget why I drink
And the times when I think to perceive what I mean
If you want we could leave and do whatever you do
Or sit at home and watch it all on the tube
In harmony

Oh, tell me, tell me, tell me, is the world lost without its moon?
And will we, will we, will we, find our own way across the blue?
Because I can’t, I can’t, I can’t withstand shipwrecks anymore
But you can, you can, you can do anything you want
But you can, you can, you can do anything you want
Track Name: Televised
Televised on the big screen
You say words, you address them to me
Publicized for the world to read
You write things you could never speak
Bombshell cries that you can’t reject
Are silenced by the sigh of suspense
Idolize the thoughts that we shared
They only exist in memory
They will only exist in your memory

Televised, let the pixels play
And dance to occupy your gaze
Vacant minds can now celebrate
They are no longer an empty space
So, close your eyes, let your pupils rest
Dream up what has not been said
Fantasize the life of success
But don’t forget the one that you have led
I said, don’t forget the life that you have led

We’ll all move along
We’ll all move along
We’ll all move along
We’ll all move along
