Old friends grow into old men While hard lines die with the best We’re out there Chasing our old light We’re finally bright Old friends long to be young men When hard times built us the best We’re out there Chasing our old light We’re finally bright You say, “Why?” You say what I… You say whatever’s on your mind Old friends, we’ve become old men With hard times, die like the rest We’re out there Chasing our own light We’re finally bright You say, “Why?” You say what I... You say whatever’s on your mind You say, “Why?” You say what I... You say whatever’s on your mind
2.
They weren’t the keepers No secret fire there Still I auditioned A lifetime defined, to remind: the divine Whenever your heart says, “the waitress...” Go now, write it down (Be)cause I’ve seen the end and it comes too soon We fall apart And then we’re gone We wait our turn We never learn I’ve been to the mountain Inflated my purpose here I’ve been the villain I am The Dance that Defies Doom But I’ve said the wrong thing so many times That I’m counting my cringes Instead of sheep When I try to sleep We fall apart And then we’re gone We wait our turn We never learn I’ll be smarter, kinder next time We’ll catch it early next time The only way to leave is through

No I don’t mean it Or do I I shape it so I don’t become it Or do I If sleep can’t unspool it If death can’t wake it If I scrape my knees when I hit the ground The devils get toothless this time Wrong again I’m wrong again my love Is it any wonder that no one can find you at home? Is it any wonder that no one can find you at home? Take one to grow big Two to grow small Take it and take it and take it I take until I disappear Wrong again I’m wrong again my love Is it any wonder that no one can find you at home? Is it any wonder that no one can find you at home? Is it any wonder no one Is it any wonder I can’t find it Is it any wonder that no one can find you alone?

Wicked 02:58
Would you syncopate my sleep Satisfy my wicked gleam Settle down, down Press yourself against what I have labored long to keep It’s all writ the same You can’t escape How you are made Could you sanctify my need Alone, and hold my wicked deed Please take your time, time Force my sold confession, quell my deadly curiosity It’s all writ the same You can’t escape How you are made It’s all writ the same You can’t escape How you are made
5.
You Get One 02:15
Hardest to take: “You are overrated” Expert witness your artist Dissolve Bargain in place Call a chaperone You’re pardoned Your criminal mastermind is right on time A different kind of White knuckle weekend Your decade Dissolves Hardest to fake We are over blaming Expert weakness Your charges (your charge is) Your criminal mastermind is right on time What if we make our escape and it’s too late?
6.
Oh trouble You made a schemer of me And when you wake up happy Calling me No no trouble Whenever I say your name You’ll find the house all in flames, And dancing Tell me Are you waiting in the light? Are you hiding in plain sight? What’s the price you’re asking For another ride? No more trouble No don’t you tempt from the throne That I would claim as my own The folly Oh trouble You are the devil in me And when we wake up happy Mmm Tell me Are you waiting in the light? Are you hiding in plain sight? What’s the price I’m paying For the ride this time?
