Track Name: Dress and Smoking Jacket
Will they catch her in a lie?
She goes by Nancy, sometimes George
Even pseudonyms get old
They get old
So old
She wants to go public
Put the letters together
They might just catch her in her lie
She’s running from streetlights
----------
A life she's concocted
A pen name in faded pencil
She’s really a light ray
----------
A magnifying glass
Starts a fire in the grass
The sound of her footsteps
In a dress and smoking jacket
It’s nighttime in Prague
Or maybe somewhere in France
----------
Running from streetlights
Hiding in coats and big black boots
Will they catch her in a lie?
----------
Are there records of her life?
Closet files or trash can notes
All this running can get old
It gets old
So old
You’d better go public
Put the letters together
They might just catch you in the sky
You’re hiding from spotlights
----------
They’ll look under the glass
And cars will stop that pass
A magnifying glass
Starts a fire in the grass
----------
A magnifying glass
Starts a fire in the grass
The sound of her footsteps
In a dress and smoking jacket
It’s nighttime in Prague
Or maybe somewhere in France
----------
Running from streetlights
Hiding in coats and big black boots
Will they catch her in a lie?
She goes by Nancy, sometimes George
Even pseudonyms get old
They get old
Hey Nancy, hey George
Is your name Nancy or George?
----------
Even pseudonyms get old
Track Name: Entrance
Press tighter on the notch
Lift up behind the glass
That enters and exits
At times it’s slow
And others fast
------------
Hours pass and we fade
We’re floating on backs
Sometimes we’re flayed
Laid open and bare
And I am everywhere
------------
Every time we touch
The hours fade
And we pass
We’re floating on our backs
On our backs
------------
Everything old
Everything new
Everything I once knew
------------
With every touch
I see colors once faded
And stories once buried
Surface again
Deep royal tones
Flashes on the bone
Travels not scripted
Expanding into tomes
------------
Everything old
Everything new
Everything old
Everything new
Everything I once knew
------------
This changes everything
You are the key to me
I answer to no one
They’ll answer to me
To me
------------
With eyes closed
And no longer clothed
Pierce again the notch
And warm the entrance
To my existence
------------
We pass
Continue on
Cheated
Somehow still alone
You see me
Going far away from you
Dazed from weary sojourns
Pushing you slow
------------
Everything old
Everything new
Everything I once knew
It’s happening again
It’s happening again
Again
Track Name: Life's A Movie
It's so odd
Today seems like yesterday
I look at myself
As a broken record
Life
Seems to repeat itself
Even though I know this
I make the same mistakes
------------
Life is a movie
And I'm always playing out of character
My life is a movie
Something I don't want to play anymore
------------
Yesterday, today
Everything's the same
My thoughts get lost within themselves
-----------
My life is a movie it seems
And I'm always playing out of character
My life is a movie it seems
Something I don't want to play anymore
-----------
Does the future happen
Will there be any change
When will the mirror show me a different face
