Track Name: On Vacation
There's nothing more to talk about
we have said it, we have screamed it out
Now's about the time
about the time we leave this place, go away for awhile

Leave this place, get away for awhile
We'll make a great escape
Track Name: Dark Humor
I'll take what my hands take and break with my heartbreaks and throw it together and then watch it dissolve

Don't get me wrong, I'll probably put it on the back burner
not moving on until I get just what I'm after
and I'm a right, a right, a right disaster
yeah you're right, you're right, what a waste of an afternoon

what a waste of an afternoon

oh what I'd give to be young again
I'd strap those stars to my eyes, get some time to spend

oh what I'd give to be yours then

what a waste
Track Name: Sunburn
Safe beside you, I can hide 'til tomorrow is gone
it won't be long before you see
what you mean to me

I took the same road you took
I look the same way you look
a fool could see it was meant to be this way

but you're a world away
you're a world away

(what a grand design... what paradise)

I'll send a signal to the sky, an S.O.S
it'll pierce your heart through your sunburnt chest
you'll catch your breath, but dear you won't know why
you find me sleeping in your mind tonight

this was your reply "I tried my best"
you left me here and that's all I get?
Why do you make it so hard to love you?
Why do you make it so hard to love you?

(What a grand design... what paradise)

Well I'm lost without you, but I can hide 'til tomorrow is gone
it won't be long 'til you come home
Track Name: Lights Out
I say "razor blade" and you'll swallow it just the same
it'll leave a trail of bloody red it's coating every word you've ever said
like "darling won't you be my queen, won't you run away with me?"
but now you're crying out your eyes, crying out your eyes because now you see
you've finally reached the end of the road, you reached the end of the road
and you'll never touch the sky
but you touched the heart of a lonely star tonight

it doesn't seem so bad, no it doesn't seem so bad now with the lights out
with the lights out

but here's the light and here's the shame, I loved you once can you say the same?
will you stay here in my arms and curse our beating hearts now?
when the lights out
when the lights out
Track Name: Lull
Trite little lovers gone off the deep end
sighing to each to each other just waiting on the weekend now
to figure it out

trying to discover some kind of meaning
keeping up routines, keep their noses clean
try and discover some kind of weakness
some kind of sign they're alive
at all

just passing the time, having a ball
but there is no light, left in their bloodshot eyes
they just stare and they sigh
through it all

It's hard when you discover the truth behind a lover's lies
when you've been together for such a long, long time
got no time for nothing that won't get me high
give me something more than a body to stand by

give me a sign, a call
drop me a lifeline, any time at all
yeah give me a sign, show me a way back now
bring me to life, figure me out

just give me a sign some kind of sign
don't leave me out in the riptide
