A duet with technology. If at any time, these forces clash, truth tends to ooze from the fissure. Don't expect anything. Just listen.

Track Name: At Night
At night I'm alone
Alone to atone
For all of these sins I'll commit

Do you think of me at night?
Do you think of me at all?
Why don't you call?
Why don't you care?
Why don't you need me anymore?
And I don't know how
And I don't know when
And I don't know why I can't see the floor.

Do you think of me at night?
Do you wander 'round your room?
Do you fumble through your clothes
For a hint of my perfume?

Why don't you call?
Why don't you care?
Why don't you need me anymore?
And I don't know how
And I don't know when
And I don't know why I can't see the floor.
Cut 'em down these curtains
I need to see outside
You wanted what I gave to you
But it's not enough no more
Track Name: The Old Mole
Eagles flyin' high in the sky
Like thoughts above you.
Darlin' don't ask why
I'm embarrassed to be so blue.

She likes it when I'm talkin'
And I tell her just how to move.

Darlin' don't deny what I told
Then tell me it's true.

She looks lovely and so dignified
Filing all her taxes and listing all her assets
On a paper employers provided to me
But I forgot to file

She likes it when I'm talking' and tell her just how to move
But those raptors keep on squawking 'bout a deal that gets real up above

Eagles in the sky wait in circles for something to die...
Track Name: One End
Can't you see me?
I'm standing right in front of you.
And don't you hear me
Cryin' cause I'm so damn blue!
Yes. Of course you're my friend.
I'm just afraid we're facing one end.

You'll always want from me
What I can never give to you.
But please don't set me free
Cause I just won't know what to do.
Yes. Of course you're my friend.
I'm just afraid we're facing one end.

There's a reason I didn't call you.
We've got nothing to say.
So put your back on that wall.
I'm the darker still in darker days!
Track Name: Sky's the Limit
Everything's indifferent
Except for you
Nothing seems resplendent
At the zoo
Beyond my hands and fingers
There's a view
Of animals awaiting
What their handlers never knew

The sky's the limit
So I guess I'm stuck with you
And your friends are idiots
If they think it's not the roof
And the one day that I stopped beating in my brains
Felt like heaven

The sky's the limit
Track Name: Science Will Save Me
We like to watch the wilted leaves
Fall from the tallest branches
One day I'll take my life
Cause I'm afraid of what attaches
And it goes like a flame into the night
Oh night

I know science will save me
And I won't be denied
From all the choices they gave me
I won't have to decide

My wife will want to choose a child
With blue eyes wider than the horizon
One day he'll walk and in my heart
I'm scared I'll secretly despise him
And it goes like a flame into the night
Oh night

I know science will save me
And I won't be denied
From all the choices they gave me
I won't have to decide

And it will take the rest
And it will make the best
Of my time

We like to watch the wilted leaves
Fall from the tallest branches

Come on science
Come on and save me
