Track Name: Everything
EVERYTHING YOU EVER ASKED FOR. EVERY BATTLE THAT YOU FOUGHT AND LOST.
EVERYTHING YOU CALCULATED. BUT DID YOU EVER COUNT THE COST?

AND IT'S MUCH TOO LATE NOW TO GO BACK
BUT YOU TRY, YOU TRY, YOU TRY

IT'S IN THE SMALLEST MOVEMENTS. IT'S IN EVERYTHING YOU SEE.
AND IN A FLEETING INSTANT, YOU LOSE ALL THAT YOU CAN BE.

AND IT'S MUCH TOO LATE NOW TO GO BACK
BUT YOU TRY, YOU TRY, YOU TRY

YOU TRY, YOU TRY, YOU TRY
Track Name: By the Sea
WALK ME TO THE OCEAN
WON'T YOU WALK DOWN TO THE BEACH?
AND TALK ABOUT TOMORROW
'TIL WE'RE TOO TIRED TO SPEAK
THERE ARE ONLY MOMENTS HERE
ONLY HEAVY SIGHS
AND THIS IS HOW IT FINALLY FEELS
TO TRULY FEEL ALIVE

I WAS BORN ACROSS STREETS,
DOWN ON BACK STREETS, BY THE SEA
AND IF YOU LOOK AROUND THOSE PARTS
I KNOW THAT YOU WILL SEE
THAT I DON'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE, HONEY
I DON'T CHANGE A THING
IT'S HARDWOOD FLOORS AND ICE CREAM CONES
IN THE GLOW OF TRACKLIGHTING

WE'LL ALWAYS HAVE THE OCEAN
YOU CAN TAKE THAT BACK TO SCHOOL
BUT DON'T TELL ANY OF YOUR FRIENDS
YOU KNOW THAT THEY'RE ALL FOOLS
WHEN YOU WAKE UP MILES AWAY
SO FAR FROM YOUR HOME
YOU'LL LOOK AROUND AND THINK ABOUT
HOW WE'RE ALL ALONE

I WAS BORN ACROSS STREETS,
DOWN ON BACK STREETS, BY THE SEA
AND IF YOU LOOK AROUND THOSE PARTS
I KNOW THAT YOU WILL SEE
THAT I DON'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE, HONEY
I DON'T CHANGE A THING
IT'S HARDWOOD FLOORS AND ICE CREAM CONES
IN THE GLOW OF TRACKLIGHTING
Track Name: Call Me Doctor
SUNDAY MORNING, GOT NOWHERE TO GO
MONTESSORI ON THE RADIO
NOTHING, NO ONE, NOWHERE ALL AT ONCE
NOTHING NEW HERE, NOTHING LEFT TO LEARN
NOTHING TO SEE, ONLY BRIDGES BURNED
ALWAYS AUTUMN, ALWAYS THE FIRST SNOW

AND THE NIGHTS WILL SHOCK YOU TO THE CORE
AND LEAVE YOU ALWAYS WANTING MORE

HARVARD SQUARE IS OVER
DON'T YOU FUCKING CALL ME MOONLIGHT GRAHAM
WILLIAMSBURG IS OVER
IT WAS OVER BEFORE IT BEGAN

A LITTLE SOMETHING, JUST TO GET YOU THROUGH
A MONTH OF SUNDAYS CALLS RIGHT OUT TO YOU
ON THESE STREETS OF IGNORANCE AND WANT
THE MISSING PIECE IN YOUR COLLECTION
OF GRIEF AND STATIC AND MISSED CONNECTIONS
SIX BILLION FACES YOU DON'T KNOW

AND THE NIGHTS WILL SHOCK YOU TO THE CORE
AND LEAVE YOU ALWAYS WANTING MORE

HARVARD SQUARE IS OVER
DON'T YOU FUCKING CALL ME MOONLIGHT GRAHAM
WILLIAMSBURG IS OVER
IT WAS OVER BEFORE IT BEGAN

HARVARD SQUARE IS OVER
DON'T YOU FUCKING CALL ME MOONLIGHT GRAHAM
WILLIAMSBURG IS OVER
IT WAS OVER BEFORE IT BEGAN
Track Name: Century
COME ON, COME ON, COME ON, COME ON...
YOUR CENTURY'S WAITING FOR YOU!
AND YOU DON'T KNOW JUST WHAT I AM GONNA DO.

LISTEN TO THE LONG SLOW FADE AGAIN
AND YOU CAN HEAR THE SOUNDS WE'VE BORROWED.
AND IF YOUR CENTURY'S GOING FAST,
THEN WE CAN SLOW IT DOWN.
SO DO YOU FOLLOW
WHY YOU AND I WILL NEVER GET ALONG?

COME ON, COME ON, COME ON, COME ON...
YOUR CENTURY'S WAITING FOR YOU!
AND YOU DON'T KNOW JUST WHAT I AM GONNA DO.

THINK ABOUT THE LIFE YOU WANT
AND THE ONE YOU ACTUALLY LEAD. AND WHAT'S LEFT OVER?
'CAUSE ALL YOU'VE GOT IS WHO YOU ARE,
AND WHO YOU USED TO BE, AND TOMORROW.
WHILE THEY TAKE AWAY
THE LAST SONG YOU WILL EVER PLAY.

COME ON, COME ON, COME ON, COME ON...
YOUR CENTURY'S WAITING FOR YOU!
AND YOU DON'T KNOW JUST WHAT I AM GONNA DO.
Track Name: The Silver Bullet
I WILL NEVER TALK ABOUT LOVE AGAIN
OR ANYTHING THAT I CAN'T PLAN
THAT I CAN'T HOLD IN MY HAND
I WILL NEVER SING ABOUT DRUGS NO MORE
"THE CHIEF'S NOT WALKING THROUGH THAT DOOR"
IT LOOKS LIKE NEITHER AM I

DON'T BE ASHAMED OF WHERE YOU'RE FROM
YOU SHOULD BE PROUD OF WHAT WE'VE DONE
ONE DAY YOU'LL HIT YOUR STRIDE AND RUN

I COULDN'T TELL YOU WHERE IT ALL WENT WRONG
OR WHY I'M WRITING ALL THESE SONGS
YOU DON'T WANT TO HEAR
BUT I'LL KEEP TRYING 'TIL I FIND A PLACE
'CAUSE IN THE SUNRISE IS YOUR FACE
I HOPE YOU CAN SEE MINE

DON'T BE ASHAMED OF WHERE YOU'RE FROM
YOU SHOULD BE PROUD OF WHAT WE'VE DONE
ONE DAY YOU'LL HIT YOUR STRIDE AND RUN

DON'T BE ASHAMED OF WHERE YOU'RE FROM
YOU SHOULD BE PROUD OF WHAT WE'VE DONE
ONE DAY YOU'LL HIT YOUR STRIDE AND RUN
Track Name: Spaceman
ON A PERFECT DAY, AT THE BREAK OF DAWN
THEY HELD HIM UP IN A THUNDERSTORM
AND THEY SAID, "THE BOY'S A CUT ABOVE THE REST"
BUT EVERYTHING WENT STRAIGHT DOWN HILL
THE SUN WON'T SHINE, IT NEVER WILL
AND YOUR FRIENDS, THEY WONDER WHO I AM

YOU SAY, "I'M A BETTER MAN!"
AND YOU SMILE LIKE YOU UNDERSTAND

NEVER WANT TO COME BACK DOWN
NEVER HEARD A SWEETER SOUND
NEVER SEEN A BRIGHTER LIGHT
IT'S GOOD WHEN YOU'RE AROUND
NEVER KNEW JUST WHAT TO DO
TO BE STRONG AND BRAVE AND TRUE
YOU'LL NEVER BE A SPACEMAN
BUT AT LEAST I TELL THE TRUTH

DREAMED IT ALL AWAY IN THE HINTERLANDS
LIVING UP TO MY OWN DEMANDS
AND I THOUGHT I KNEW THE MASTERPLAN
SPENT SO MUCH TIME ON A PRETTY GIRL
WHO TOOK SO MUCH AND COST THE WORLD
BUT I SWEAR, I'D DO IT ALL AGAIN

YOU SAY, "I'M A BETTER MAN!"
AND YOU SMILE LIKE YOU UNDERSTAND

NEVER WANT TO COME BACK DOWN
NEVER HEARD A SWEETER SOUND
NEVER SEEN A BRIGHTER LIGHT
IT'S GOOD WHEN YOU'RE AROUND
NEVER KNEW JUST WHAT TO DO
TO BE STRONG AND BRAVE AND TRUE
YOU'LL NEVER BE A SPACEMAN
BUT AT LEAST I TELL THE TRUTH

NEVER WAS A SPACEMAN
NEVER WAS A SPACEMAN
NEVER WAS A SPACEMAN
NEVER WAS A SPACEMAN
NEVER WAS A SPACEMAN
NEVER WAS A SPACEMAN
NEVER WAS A SPACEMAN
NEVER WAS A SPACEMAN
Track Name: The Lions Did It
WHAT WILL WE DO TODAY? I WONDER WILL WE TALK AT ALL.
THE LIONS WATCHING ME LIKE SENTINELS UPON THE WALL.
I LEAVE A TRAIL OF BROKEN GLASS AND EMPTY COFFEE CUPS,
AND SOMEDAY YOU'LL DECIDE THAT YOU HAVE FINALLY HAD ENOUGH.

TOMORROW'S LOOKING UP. IF ALL YOU SAY IS TRUE,
THEN WHAT IS IT THAT CLINGS TO ME AND PASSES RIGHT THROUGH YOU?

I'M WIRED TO EXPLODE, DON'T TOUCH ME OR PICK UP THE PHONE
BUT YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT I'M NOT GOING THROUGH THIS THING ALONE.
IT'S GETTING DARK OUTSIDE, CAN YOU GET ME OUT OF MY HOUSE?
I DON'T HAVE ANSWERS FOR THESE QUESTIONS THAT KEEP POURING OUT.

TOMORROW'S LOOKING UP. IF ALL YOU SAY IS TRUE,
THEN WHAT IS IT THAT CLINGS TO ME AND PASSES RIGHT THROUGH YOU?

TOMORROW'S LOOKING UP. IF ALL YOU SAY IS TRUE,
THEN WHAT IS IT THAT CLINGS TO ME AND PASSES RIGHT THROUGH YOU?
Track Name: When I Was Younger
WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, I THOUGHT I KNEW IT ALL
(WHEN I WAS YOUNGER, I CLAIMED THIS LAND FOR SPAIN)
I THOUGHT I WAS BIG THEN, BUT I WAS STILL SO SMALL
(AND EVER SINCE THEN, NOTHING'S BEEN THE SAME)
WE CALL IT PROGRESS, BUT NOTHING'S CHANGED AT ALL
TEAR IT DOWN, REBUILD IT TWICE AS TALL

I REMEMBER WALKING THROUGH THE TOWN
AND I REMEMBER THE VULTURE'S CIRCLING 'ROUND
TO TAKE AWAY WHAT YOU BUILD YOUR LIFE AROUND
AND WHAT WE'VE LOST WILL NEVER BE FOUND
Track Name: How Does it Go?
HOW DOES IT GO? WHAT DO YOU KNOW?
HOW DO I MAKE THIS GARDEN GROW?
LIVING THE LIFE, DOING IT RIGHT.
HOW COME I CAN'T SLEEP AT NIGHT

(WHAT SHOULD I DO?)

I WILL RIDE THE LIGHT TO SOLOMON POND TONIGHT
AND MAKE UP FOR AN EDUCATION THAT DIDN'T TURN OUT RIGHT
I WILL FIND THE TIME FOR W.P.I.
AND LISTEN TO THE MUSIC OF A LONG-FORGOTTEN TIME

MAKING IT CLEAR, SAYING IT HERE.
THE THINGS I WANT ARE THINGS I FEAR
TURN IT AROUND, RUN IT AGROUND
I KNOW I'M LOST, BUT CAN I BE FOUND

(WHAT CAN I DO?)

I WILL RIDE THE LIGHT TO SOLOMON POND TONIGHT
AND MAKE UP FOR AN EDUCATION THAT DIDN'T TURN OUT RIGHT
I WILL FIND THE TIME FOR W.P.I.
AND LISTEN TO THE MUSIC OF A LONG-FORGOTTEN TIME

YOU SHOULD FEEL WHAT I FEEL
YOU SHOULD TAKE WHAT I TAKE
YOU SHOULD FEEL WHAT I FEEL
YOU SHOULD TAKE WHAT I TAKE
YOU SHOULD FEEL WHAT I FEEL
YOU SHOULD TAKE WHAT I TAKE


I WILL RIDE THE LIGHT TO SOLOMON POND TONIGHT
AND MAKE UP FOR AN EDUCATION THAT DIDN'T TURN OUT RIGHT
I WILL FIND THE TIME FOR W.P.I.
AND LISTEN TO THE MUSIC OF A LONG-FORGOTTEN TIME
Track Name: Works & Days
THROUGH ALL THESE ENDLESS HOURS
THE WORKS AND DAYS WILL SET US FREE
A WORLD THAT'S TRULY OURS
AND MAYBE THEN I'LL MAKE YOU SEE
THAT I JUST DON'T BELONG HERE
A DIFFERENT TIME, ACROSS THE SEA
AND IF IT COMES TO NOTHING, AT LEAST I NEVER DID BELIEVE.

ACROSS AND ENDLESS OCEAN
BENEATH A CLEAR AND CLOUDLESS SKY
THERE ARE NO NEW EMOTIONS
AND THERE'S NO BETTER WAY TO FLY
"IT'S NEVER ALL ABOUT ME..."
WELL, THESE THINGS ARE NEVER HOW THEY SEEM
SO DON'T YOU EVER TELL ME
THAT YOU KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I MEAN

FOR EVERYTHING A SEASON
FOR EVERYTHING A TIME
FOR EVERYTHING A REASON
ALL THROUGH YOUR LIFE...
Track Name: Birds Fly, Bears Don't
THIS IS RETALIATION, IN HEAVY AIR ROTATION.
"ARE YOU SOMEONE I USED TO KNOW?"
BIRDS FLY, BEARS DON'T. AND THAT IS ALL I KNOW.
THAT IS ALL I KNOW...

TREE LINED ROADS
STREET LIGHTS IN THE COLD
IGNITE AND EXPLODE
"TURN UP THE RADIO LOUD! TURN UP THE RADIO LOUD!"

BREATHE DEEP AND EXHALE, LET'S TELL ANOTHER TALE:
THE TASTE OF VOMIT IN MY MOUTH.
LAY BACK, PULL IN CLOSE, AND LET IT ALL GO.
LET IT ALL GO...

TREE LINED ROADS
STREET LIGHTS IN THE COLD
IGNITE AND EXPLODE
"TURN UP THE RADIO LOUD! TURN UP THE RADIO LOUD!"

"TURN UP THE RADIO LOUD! TURN UP THE RADIO LOUD!"
"TURN UP THE RADIO LOUD! TURN UP THE RADIO LOUD!"

TREE LINED ROADS
STREET LIGHTS IN THE COLD
IGNITE AND EXPLODE
IGNITE AND EXPLODE
Track Name: Reach Out
WHERE DOES ALL THE LOVE GO, MAN?
I’LL STAY FOREVER
IF FOREVER FEELS LIKE 1995
AND IF THIS MAKES NO SENSE
WELL, THEN, WHATEVER
YOU’LL NEVER GET INSIDE MY MIND

I WANNA REACH OUT, BUT I JUST CAN’T
I WANNA REACH OUT, BUT I JUST CAN’T
STAY WITH ME, BUT AS I LIVE AND BREATHE
YOU WILL NOT COME BETWEEN

WE’RE AT A PLACE AND TIME
IF THERE WAS EVER
WHERE I SHOULD NEVER HAVE TO LIE
BUT STILL I’M FILLED WITH DOUBT
GIVE IN TO ‘NEVER’
I LACK THE STRENGTH TO CHANGE MY LIFE

I WANNA REACH OUT, BUT I JUST CAN’T
I WANNA REACH OUT, BUT I JUST CAN’T
STAY WITH ME, BUT AS I LIVE AND BREATHE
YOU WILL NOT COME BETWEEN
