It's ok. There's something wrong. I need help. I heard you guys talking. I'm not dumb.
Track Name: 17
Do you remember when we looked at the stars? Do you remember when you looked at the stars? It was summer and you couldn't take it. It was beautiful and you just could not take it. The drugs, it wasn't that. We all understand. Our funeral isn't a rehearsal. We won't cry about lost life. They lived it well. Do you remember when we looked at the stars?
Track Name: An Explosion (I)
Married 50 years never spent more than a couple days apart. Separate rooms, separate beds do you visit her sometimes at night. If I go first I'll wait for you on the other side of the dark water. There was an explosion car parts and the smell of burning gasoline. How many love you, is that some kind of currency? In the shower eyes closed your thoughts are like poems. If I go first I'll wait for you on the other side of these dark waters. Help me leave you.
Track Name: the clear blue sky from which the plane fell
The clear blue sky from which the plane fell. The clear blue sky from which the plane fell. And you saw it fall. I will not let my fears overtake me. I will not let my dreams derange my best intentions now. I've got an early draft of 'Before the Aftermath'. I found old suicide notes in your blue winter coat. I'll be part of the sky, fall from space. What will I still believe in? I found old suicide notes in your favourite winter coat. All these things that I don't need to know. All these things that I don't need to know about you.
Track Name: ekg
I'm the same guy that you met. Is that hopeful or is that a threat? You know I never quite figured out what it looked like to you. Me chasing all these fever dreams. Tremble close to me in your room. We'll stay this way
Track Name: 18
We were both suicidal separately on the same night. I'm done fucking around with this sad sack last act lost and loneliness. I'm the brightest light shining in any night. In any night. To the wonder. To the laughter. To the what comes after. Laura I'm not sure is it that I'm too young, or is it that you're too old. Let's run down this street and over the bridge through the cemetery where the dead people live and out to the suburbs. But the cold of the river and the seat of this bench brings us together I'll ask you in french Laura, can I come up to your room?
Track Name: IOUNYC
I owe you New York without cocaine and violence, dear. I owe you the New York I've been painting its picture all these years. We spent 9 years happily breaking cardinal rules. Society was wrong and sadly still thinks we are the fools. All of my dreams are in you. All of my dreams are in your heart pumping blood to your brain that responds to my touch when my hands are on you. I owe you my freedom but you let me keep it or it wouldn't be true. I owe you the silence after years carrying the same old tune. You were gone we were drinking to discographies. As the afternoon light poured in Counting Crows gave was to Fugazi. I owe you nothing and we have no control. I owe you nothing and we could have it all. I owe you New York.
Track Name: An Explosion (II)
I will be calm. I will be dignified when I come to you. There was an explosion. An explosion. War makes death something to hope for, sometimes. Years passing has proven those who called themselves the chosen ones were not the chosen. Yet we cower in the shadow of a crumbling empire we call america. If I never meet you in this life, let me feel the lack, the never having met you. The never having met you
