Track Name: Blue Midnight
I pay for the check and I walk down the lane all alone
Whoa, and that breeze begins a'blowin'
Yeah, and I step into the mist
And enter the palace of the lonely wish

Into the starlight, there is a place
That I got it figured and I have a face
When I get older
Oh, what a dream I'll have

Blue Midnight
I'm trying to tell you there's one thing they can't take away
Blue Midnight
Whoa, it grows deeper every day
Blue Midnight
Yeah, it's where the air is still
Blue Midnight
And they'll never find it but I know you will

So if you are walking, out walking alone
Out to the corner, afraid to go home
Why don't you join me
Oh, what dream we'll have

Remember the hour when the fog begins to fall
And all of the moonbeams break their light against the wall
It can only
It can only
It can only
It can only mean one thing (one thing)
One thing (one thing)
It's the Blue

Blue Midnight
I pay for the check and I walk down the lane all alone
Blue Midnight
Whoa, and that breeze begins a'blowin'
Blue Midnight
Yeah, and I step into the mist
Blue Midnight
And enter the palace of the lonely wish
Blue Midnight
Track Name: Mariella (I'm Your Fella)
Bumming ‘round the summer everybody’s growing dumber so be careful not to slip on the drool
Says the fighter to the writer as his fist is closing tighter on the neck of what is left of the fool
But what no one wants to mention is the alternate dimension, which opened up outside of school
Where the crazy folks fall out and shake about but none of them quite like you

Visionary mama shouting beach balls and Obama while the kid plays the sad violin
Corner store conductor needs a number to instruct her that she’ll never ever add up again
Well everybody is a circus but it’s only on the surface when the ringmaster is buried too deep
What’s this world coming to? I don’t know do you? Want to make it up? Like all this other stuff? Yeah

Mariella, Mariella I’m your fella on this mystic and emotional ride
Mariella, I will tell ya Cinderella was your equal when you open your eyes
Let’s plan on looking back, learning all the facts, forgetting them after a while

Hear the storm a’coming and see everyone a’running but the dancing man’s the one they arrest
Says the carrot to the snowman I don’t want to be your nose man, so bite me off or put me in your vest
It’s an old tradition to go seeking recognition says the Invisible Man with a grin
And though he don’t appear, at least he’s clear, it don’t take much to look like him

Little orphan Annie she’s a holding hands with Danny and they whisper by the liquor store light
Everybody’s talking and they’re walking while they’re talking and they’re talking ‘bout how nothing’s ever right
But I say this world ain’t over when you look over your shoulder and you call me out into the night
And I want to let you know, I don’t know where to go, you want to take the wheel? Just turn to how you feel yeah

Mariella, Mariella I’m your fella on this mystic and emotional ride
Mariella, I will tell ya Cinderella was your equal when you open your eyes
Let’s plan on looking back, learning all the facts, forgetting them after a while

Let’s face it, we won’t make it if the chaos leaves us blind
These are dull times full of punch lines but the joke is on our lives
I will drive to your place in the morning and we’ll leave this world without warning
We can live free of all the irony yes someday when we find the new land again yeah

Mariella won't you step right up and tell me are we the next contestants who haven't learned their lessons
I'm afraid of heights, I'm afraid of overbites but I ain't afraid tonight so let's walk this world that don't spin right
Track Name: Lifelong
Icarus’ mind says it all will go fine but somehow he knows it is lying
He skips off the roof waits around for the proof, but he knows that he just isn’t flying
The poet of grief clacks its claws on the street
A curfew crowd forms while you’re taking your seat
And the concession stand man wipes his tears with wounded receipts

So you live in the crime scene
You study wax papers
And detain the red sun at dawn

You’re not a detective
But it don’t truly matter
Cause everyone’s searching for what always was gone lifelong, lifelong

The Minotaur wails in the palace of nails but nothing is only the matter
In the room of old crystal he fires his pistol but everything’s already shattered
He looks at you, you look at me, we nod our heads and then we flee
Right to the door that ain’t there anymore
Your senses fail, you cannot hear, you cannot taste, you disappear
While the globe revolves on a chain
Lifelong, lifelong, lifelong, lifelong

And everyone knows that the world is all right, it says so on the computer
Each word has a rhyme, each lemon, a lime, each President, a custom-made shooter
But nothing is wrong when nothing is right
And everything you love is just being polite
And we’d like to stand tall through it all but not from this height

So you pay off the beggar
You follow the furrows
And the liars of truth ring the gong

The speckled red rumors
Are screamed off the ice-cliffs
Still everyone’s searching for what always was gone, lifelong, lifelong
Track Name: Only A Sight For Sore Eyes
To wish she waits like wisdom
With her polished pupil prisms
But she cannot view her vision
So she staple-guns her grin
She’s the psycho saint of splendor
Just as tortured as she’s tender
Her soul signed "return to sender"
Yet she dwells on Deadpan Drive
And she’s only a sight for sore eyes
When she fights me in the face and deadens my disguise

She follows me like fragrance
Down the melting path of patience
She's poignant as the pavement
So watch out where you step
She's the kind of gal who's guarded
Always dupes the dopes she's darted
Bombastic and bombarded
She's explosive to let go
And she’s only a sight for sore eyes
When she fights me in the face and deadens my disguise

She's as cool as a collision
As tough as a decision
She's pointless with precision
She's everywhere but her
She calls me her creation
Her villainous vacation
A dastardly destination
She can visit when she’s void
But she's only a sight for sore eyes
When she fights me in the face and deadens my disguise

Sometimes I’m weak to worry
The clearest love's still blurry
You just don't judge a jury
They could convict you too
No one knows her reasons
Trying would be treason
She shot me out of season
She pays a heavy fine
But she's only a sight for sore eyes
When she fights me in the face and deadens my disguise
Track Name: Angerheart
Angerheart
The face of stone
Living lifetimes on his own
Leaving no one to forget
The sights that he has known
Leading people from their minds
Rearranging what was fine
All the ages come and go
He can’t take it, he just can’t take it

Angerheart
Your eyes are the limit
Your mind is the color of control
Angerheart
Your eyes are the limit

Angerheart
Upon the plain
Riding backwards through the rain
Chasing nightmares off the cliff
To dance into the mist
By the candle of his cry
Only speaks in lullaby
Though your shadow is his home
He keeps knocking, he keeps on knocking

Angerheart
Your eyes are the limit
Your mind is the color of control
Angerheart
Your eyes are the limit
