Track Name: The Window
I saw a girl outside the window yesterday
Her face was made of gold
Her face was made of paperclips and clay
We watched her dance between the spaces in the rain
We watched the sparrow call
We watched her dance till she was swept away

I want to breathe under the shadows
I want to fog up all the windows with my breath
I want to hang her from the gallows
I want to feel you become one

I saw a girl outside the window yesterday
Her eyes were silver glass
Her face was made of paperclips and clay
We watched her sink beneath the waters of the bay
We watched the dragonfly,
We watched her sink till night had turned to day

I want to breathe under the shadows
I want to fog up all the windows with my breath
I want to hang her from the gallows
I want to feel you become one

I want to breathe under the shadows
I want to fog up all the windows with my breath
I want to hang her from the gallows
I want to feel you become one
Track Name: The Wishing Well
I was at the wishing well, I was wishing well
My silver coin glancing off flaming golden brick
A man of alcohol and aldehyde
Rose up from deep below and kissed me on the cheek
And he said
“I was at the wishing well
Bringing back the spirits of the dead"
But my words all fell upon deaf ears
So follow me and let me tell you what I said, I said

This is everything I wanted
This is everything I ever need
By the time yesterday has started
We’ll become one with the trees.”

We wandered deeper then, deeper into the forest
The trees all giving was to flashing fields of wheat
No words from me of from my odd ghostly companion
“till he turned to ma and let me tell you what he said
He said
“Everything is greener now
Now I see the forest for the trees”
Then he melted back into the ground
I looked away and let me tell you what I said, I said

"This is everything I wanted
This is everything I ever need
By the time yesterday has started
We’ll become one with the trees.
This is everything I wanted
This is everything I ever need
By the time yesterday has started
You’ll become one with the trees."
Track Name: Twilight Town
In full I’d like to see you less than dressed for falling skies
Tonight’s the night we ride until tomorrow’s path is nigh

Let us venture to Twilight Town, tonight we die
Let us venture to Twilight Town, tonight we

Wait and see, still moving forward, never looking back to try
Only through effort can we taste the bitters of the rye

Let us venture to Twilight Town, tonight we
Let us venture to Twilight Town, tonight we

Drown in a sea of blue-brass coated urchins
Find ourselves lost among the shadow passage
Hang our heads high in the garden of lost thieves
Just promise you’ll be there with me, oh won’t you please

In full I’d like to see you less than dressed for falling skies
Tonight’s the night we ride until tomorrow’s path is nigh
Let us venture to Twilight Town, tonight we die
Let us venture to Twilight Town, tonight we die
Track Name: Wear Flowers in Your Hair
Beneath the ocean colored bridge
I waited for you
A ghost a thousand ages old
I made it for you

So please wear flowers in your hair
When you meet me by the sea
And if tomorrow comes to pass
Who knows what changes it will bring
So please wear flowers in your hair
Even if it's not for me
The seasons change and summers pass

Beneath the ocean colored bridge
I waited for you
A ghost ten thousand ages old
I made it for you

So please wear flowers in your hair
When you meet me by the quay
And if this night will never end
We'll burn our souls so we can see
So please wear flowers in your hair
At the end of everything

The sun will die and rise again
(ahh, ahh ahh)
