Track Name: Superconductor
Today
My greying life is
Saved by a bolt to the heart

Reborn
Over the crater
Brimming with negative charge

A superconductor I
Am the channel for the light
In a spike of electricity
I am here to bring
I am here to bring

In time
Swiftly my body will
Rise to withering heights

With the
Universe watching
Now is the hour to strike

A superconductor I
Am the herald of the light
In a spike of electricity
I have come to bring
I have come to bring
Track Name: Midnight Blue
Keep in touch old friends
‘Cause this is the end
But wasn’t it fun then?
I swear it was just the last
Night that we promised to keep it alive

But we were never
Great at keeping to lies
The laughs cutting shorter
Their faces grown older
So going home early for work the next day

So come and get lost with me
It’s getting lonely and
I wouldn’t mind having
Company tonight

Go on for hours, no
I don’t have anywhere
I have to be
So stay here with me

The ghosts in the telephone
Calling me home but I
Can’t hear a word for the
Life of my soul

Here with you now is the
Most perfect night that I
Ever could hope
Come as they go

Come and get lost with me
(Good night)
It’s getting lonely and
(It’s been)
I wouldn’t mind having
(Great I’m)
Company tonight
(Sad I)

Go on for hours, no
(Can’t stay)
I don’t have anywhere
(Sorry there’s somewhere)
I have to be
(I have to be)
‘Cause everyone leaves

The voice in the stereo
Singing of home but I
Don’t know the word for the
Life of my soul

Here with you then was the
Most perfect night that I
Ever have known
Track Name: Brain
I had this dream last night that you crawled into my bed
Swore I felt your fingertips, how could this all be in my head
One foot over the other, creeping closer to my edge
Fire burns inside me, yearning to have you here again

Counting the hours
Counting the days
‘til my hills and valleys drive you insane
You bring the thunder
I bring the brain
Waiting out the clock ‘til I get my way

Every ounce is burning, is yearning
Every ounce is yours
Every ounce is burning, is yearning
Every ounce is yours

Do you find your heart rate race at the scent of my perfume
Do you let your mind escape, dreaming of how my body moves
Do you close your eyes and hear me whimpering your name
From your lips escape how badly you ache to have me once again

Counting the hours
Counting the days
‘til my hills and valleys drive you insane
You bring the thunder
I bring the brain
Waiting out the clock ‘til I get my way

Every ounce is burning, is yearning
Every ounce is yours
Every ounce is burning, is yearning
Every ounce is yours

Every ounce is burning, is yearning
Every ounce is yours
Every ounce is burning, is yearning
Every ounce is yours
Track Name: Train
Take the late train far away from home
Filled with people feeling all alone
He pays the fare, he's going nowhere
But he’ll get there on his own

He leans his head against the dirty glass
Sees the trees and streets and people pass
Leaves the station in resignation
No destination but he’ll get there fast

She packs her baggage, leaves it all behind
Finds a train departing over time
Soon the city’s gone, she’s got her headphones on
Projects a calm, pretending that she’s fine

Out the window she can see the tracks
Parallel forever, front and back
They’re cutting through the perfect view
Of green and blue until it fades to black

Across the platform there’s another train
Paused a moment in the pouring rain
And for a time, their eyes collide
And in the shining light it’s all okay

He sees perfection in her pretty face
She looks at him, her heart begins to race
They share a smile, but in a while
They’re making miles to another place
Track Name: Sea Machine
Old grey lines so
Drawn across
My coat

Old hands lose control
Drift to where the current goes

Deep green
Will sing my bones to sleep
With old ghosts
Coming to sink me home

Wash clean
A thousand years of grief
And sing until death keeps my
Heart to the sea machine
