Track Name: Everything Changes
EVERYTHING CHANGES

It was getting late
Now it’s getting early
Everyone I know
Is leaving like the last train home

Now I’m sorry
I’m out of money
I’ve got your number
And I’m looking for a public phone
Or just a dial tone

I’m on the roadside now
They’re kicking everyone out
The city’s closing down
I’m hoping you might stick around
But everything changes

Everything changes

I never told you
Not in the daylight
It doesn’t matter what I tell you
At the end of the night

It’s getting colder
I’m at the end of the high
I always love you more
When I’m a sorry sight

Everything changes

I’m on the roadside now
They’re kicking everyone out
The city’s closing down
I’m hoping you might stick around
But everything changes
Track Name: Main Street
I’m a tiger on the Main Street
It’s not a grin these are my teeth
Come any closer and you’ll find out
It could be terror or relief
Terror or relief

I’m ready for a fight
I’m ready for a rumble tonight
I’ll break the anvil
I’ll throw the clay in the fire
Tear a hole in the sky
I’ll look that ancient avenger
Straight in the eye
I’m ready for a rumble tonight

I’m a tiger burning brightly
Out in the early morning light
Looking for someone to defy me
You can be wrong and I’ll be right
You’ll be alright

I’m ready for a fight
I’m ready for a rumble tonight
I’ll break the anvil
I’ll throw the clay in the fire
Tear a hole in the sky
I’ll look that ancient avenger
Straight in the eye
I’m ready for a rumble tonight
Track Name: Bird of Prey
I know I probably said too much
I speak until I’m out of luck
I can see a bird of prey in town

I think I know a thing or two
It’s only when I’m telling you
Now that there’s a bird of prey on my road

I guess I’m not the only one
To get my enamoured on
Do you run your own races?

I think I know a thing or two
It’s only when I’m telling you
Now that there’s a bird of prey on my road

I know I probably said too much
I speak until I’m out of luck
I can see a bird of prey in town

I guess it’s not the end of days
I’m trying to curtail some things
I can run my own races too
Track Name: Slow
You’d like to get to know me
You’ll know me better than you know yourself
There are things that I can show you
Like the other side of everything else

If you get there after I do
I’ll be waiting by the wall
You can wear your Sunday clothes
But there’ll be nothing left for you to know
We’ll take it real slow
Take it real slow

You’re never gonna know me
We’ll come together but I’m leaving alone
What is there to show me
I already know you’re not going home

If you get there after I do
I’ll be waiting by the wall
You can wear your Sunday clothes
But there’ll be nothing left for you to know
We’ll take it real slow
Take it real slow
Track Name: NYD
I don’t want to get up yet
But I’m already thinking about cigarettes
I go out on Friday night
So that I can forget

I’m trying not to be unkind
If I said everything that I’ve got on my mind
I sure could lose a lot of friends
And save a lot of time

There’s a line and I’ve got mine

I’ve got to hold onto something
Anything all of the time
Anything’s better than nothing
I never keep what I find

I don’t want to leave alone
But there’s no one at this party
That I want to take home
I’ll get a taxi on my own

I know it’s going to be alright
But the noise is always louder at night
Lying awake in the blue light

There’s a line and I’ve got mine

I’ve got to hold onto something
Anything all of the time
Anything’s better than nothing
I never keep what I find
Track Name: I See Stars
I burnt my feet on the road
Before the rain
We turned into a street
At the end of the day
We got sand in the bed

When I close my eyes there are stars
Stars in my head
We listened to a song on the radio
It sounded bittersweet
And we talked about everything
And everything else

Now I’m back in the city
I gotta make some money
You stayed down in the country
Sometimes I wonder do you miss me
You’re the ringing in my ears
I’m gonna call you on the telephone

When I close my eyes I see the stars
Stars in my head
You’re the ringing in my ears
When I close my eyes I see the stars
I see the stars
Track Name: Still Here
We’ve been apart now for more than a year
Whenever we go back it’s easy it’s clear
I was in town for a couple of days
We don’t need to tell anyone where I stayed

We still talk twice a week
You’re still there I’m still free
You said you met someone, she’s nothing like me
I bet she’s twice as pretty and half as mean

You were the one who wanted to go
We were moving too fast and the town was too slow
You said that you wouldn’t come around anymore
I should have known then, I’d heard it before

We still talk twice a month
You’re still free and I’m still getting drunk
You said you met someone, I met one or two
I gave it away, I was looking for you

You don’t pick up the phone anymore
There’s a big dull divide between love and war
You gave away all of the things that we own
I’m keeping the photos I took on my phone

We still talk once a year
You’re still there I’m still here
You said you met someone, I met someone too
One day I’ll met someone who’s nothing like you
Track Name: Rosetta
Rosetta we’ll be standing by
An echo and an alibi
The feeling in the physics too

A decade out into the night
Now they’re bringing baby back to life
A billion dollar rendezvous

Rosetta’s in the sky tonight
Hoping that it’s true
That we got the mathematics right
Right by you

In the orbit of a passer by
It took a dozen years to say goodnight
Such an elegant equation you

There may be havoc at the landing site
But in the shadows we were mesmerized
It took a cable and a spare harpoon

Rosetta’s in the sky tonight
Hoping that it’s true
That we got the mathematics right
Right by you
Track Name: Cherries
Under the dashboard oil and cherries
I push my back into the metal
We were almost at the border
I’d never seen the end of the night
Or the bottom of the water

I put my hands out on the leather
I press my face against the glass
Counting the fires along the road
Somewhere out past the edge of the light
They’re never gonna know

There’s a limit across the line
I’ll be letting in all the light
There’s a satellite in the sky
I’d never seen the end of the night
Or the bottom of the water
Track Name: All I Know
Under bridges
Asleep in cars
Inside the doorway
Nowhere to be seen
Sitting on the step
Running for government
Swimming across the street
Standing around

Scrolling in silence
Watching on while
They’re jumping at chances
Through the tree tops
I’ll be invisible
You’ll be invisible too
The more or less that
We agree to see it through

This is all I know about you

The oil in the well
The water on the road
Looking at the hill
Seeing firewood
They stand in cemeteries
We stand in cemeteries too
This is all I know about you
