Track Name: Montauk
Vs 1.)
And we drove all night
Between waves and magistrates
To find little pieces of ourselves
Between stone cold fires on the beach
And tales we told between the sheets
Limbs and longings cross but seldom meet

Chorus)
Its so hard... so hard to remember
and it came it came one September
and then another it was gone

Vs 2.)
And we vanished without a trace
Lighthouses to guide our way
Light so bright it covered my shade
Looks pressed like flowers in our memories
To the tales we told between the sheets
Stories of glories and guilts find peace

Chorus)
Its so hard so hard to remember and it came it came one September
and then another it was gone

Bridge)
And now there’s nothing but little white, little white pieces
nothing but little pieces
Of this story
And they're torn
And they're floating above

And they're floating… up above
Track Name: Carnaval
Vs.1
Nothing seems quite right tonite
I have gotta find a way to get out of here
I got my shoelaces tied on tight
I got your songs ringing in my ears
Oh oh oh oh oh

Vs.2)
Oh nothing seems quite right tonite
I have gotta find a way to get out of here
But we stand dimly lit in moonlight
But we are haunted by the ghosts in the mirror
Oh oh oh oh oh

Chorus (2x)
So run like you can’t stop and bleed every last drop
But you know, you know, you know
My love will carry us through the years

I will carry us through the years

Vs.3)
Oh nothing seems quite right tonite
I have gotta find a way to get out of here
Away from these little pieces, these little parts I play
Inside your carnivals of fear
Oh oh oh oh

Chorus:

Bridge:
And your multi-layered paradigms shine like wind chimes
In the heat of the night
Oh and the water drops and the words I stopped
Trickle out your guilty ears let them find you here
In the bed you share with lions and bears and
Things of your nightmares

Inside these carnivals of fear
Track Name: When Will You Lay Me Down
lyrics by Ally Leedy

Vs 1.)
I‘ve been traveling for a long time
I’ve been singing songs I don’t write and
I don’t know what’s left of me now
I’ve been traveling for a long time
And I’ve been sitting in the backseat
Looking out the side window and dreaming
Of something I don’t really know if its real anymore

Vs 2.)
I’ve been traveling for a long time
I’ve been singing songs I don’t write and I don’t what’s left anymore
But there are velvet seats and black interior
and Jesus hanging on the dashboard mirror
And I like to roll the windows down
I like to hold my hands out and feel the air all around

Vs. 3.)
And its been miles and miles and days and days
I’ve seen the Grand Canyon and serenades of gypsy children
And I’ve seen big strong towers
I’ve seen big strong men and I’ve seen them cry in weak hours
I’ve seen them run when they give in

Chorus)
Oh where are we going now? Oh where are we going now?
Where are we going?
Oh I want to be strong, I want to hold on
But I need some destination
To the soft grass
Laying on my back

(tag)
When will you lay me down in soft grass, rain on my back
When will you lay me down in soft grass, rain on my back
And I wanna be strong I want to hold on
but I need some destination
to the soft grass rain on my back

Track Name: Skeletons
Vs. 1)
And I woke up with the finiest dreams
Full of brighter scenes I’ll paint when I get the time
You were there on my fire escape
Holding onto fate and
I tried to believe you with all my might

(We were there under dark and endless skies)

Vs.2)
We woke up in a distant land
Full sea foam green had a taste of salty plans
You were there by the dock without a care
Holding onto fresh air
I tried to believe you with all my might

(We were there under dark and endless skies)

Vs. 3)
Today I woke up to the scent of spring
Caught you lingering on my side of the bed
Cause I believe that these cold hard bones
Can bleed and mold into whatever we decide

(Cause we stand here under dark and endless skies)

Chorus:/ Hook
Cause I feel like we are living in moving pictures
Pause rewind the warmth of the familiar
Before we run out of time
Track Name: Liverpool
And It's hard to tell from this blindside view
If this will rise and swell and take me under with you
Will it take me under

And from the Ides of March until the bleak mid-winter
I'll trust my reckless heart because it knows me better
it knows me better than you do

So If I tell a lie, if I grin under the table
its not that pass you by
We can't bloom before we are able
Before we are able to

Lyrics by Ally Leedy
Track Name: Mind Field
Vs. 1)
There’s a patch of grass about a mile away
And you can find my head there any damn old day
Cause I need something real just give me something I can feel

When I was a girl in the great heartland I thought someday maybe I would understand
What all this means?
When I was lying with my back down on the pavement

(Chorus)
Cause all things change
Rearrange
Houses and rooms full of perfumes
Linger to stay

Vs 2)
Staring up at clouds and screaming loud and dreaming of lands we’ve not yet found
We were young and free as we are and always will be

There's a patch of grass about a mile away
And you can find my head there any damn old day
Cause I need something real just give me something I can feel

Chorus)
Cause all things change
rearrange
Houses and rooms full of perfumes
Linger to stay

Bridge)
Now I can’t see clearly
No I can’t see ….anymore
Cause I can’t see clearly
No I can’t see….. anymore

Anymore anymore……
Track Name: Many An Autumn
Vs.1)
I hear the questions in the autumn leaves
Burning oil in lamps of our reveries
A bitter pill soaked in sweet champagne
I hear the answers in the autumn leaves
I tried to tell you ever time you would leave
One man’s spoils is another’s decays

Vs.2)
I hear the questions in the autumn leaves
The cursive script for the vigil love-antes
We soak and savor as other’s wish it away
I hear the answers in the autumn leaves
I tried to tell you ever time you would leave
Be patient with me this cycle may never change

Chorus:
We go forward to fall back
And we ache to tell each other what we lack
And we hide all day just to come out at night

Bridge:
But we are all just made of
Skin and teeth- breathing lips and bones and dirty feet
But I’ll take them
Over these plastic lies and long forgotten guilty sighs

Tag-
Any day now any day any day I’ll find you my love
Any day now any day any day
