“We Turn To Wine”
Isn’t it a sin? A loss for every win
The cruelest trick of time, no reason nor a rhyme
Honestly, your eyes gave up your disguise
In dealing with a heart, it breaks before it bends, and ends before it starts
And everyone knows, how it comes and goes
But we’re on your side, so everyone tried
Isn’t it a sin?
And everyone knows, how it comes and goes
But we’re on your side, so everyone lied
The world waits for you
Your tears will turn to waterfalls, which turn to win when given time
We turn to wine

“The Denouement”
In Central Park, you waved goodbye,
But it wasn’t so bad, you could’ve given another try
In Central Park, why dear why?
It wasn’t so bad, could’ve give another try
You write your life, and threw it on the fire
But it wasn’t so bad
Rising action/Denouement
I fear my dear, you’ve lost the plot

“No One Lives Here Anymore”
When you’re lying on your side
And you’re trying to decide
If this house is still a home
Would you rather be alone?
I’ve never been so sure
That no one lives here anymore
You’re all I came here for
And no one lives here anymore

“Nova”
You’ve run too far this time, and now there’s no way home
Who could catch the freest will?
She blends with the night
You’ll never catch the freest will

“Last Song About Old Bands”
A Shining song of hope, we’d listen in the van
Always heading north, and sometimes with a plan
And seeing eye to eye is a miracle sometimes
Just so many notes, just so many rhymes
You’re so beautiful/you’re so beautiful/you’re so beautiful/you’re my homeboy- Adorable
One more for the road, borrowing our time
Forgiving every sin, forgetting every line
Last time I swear, let’s come up for air

“Masking Agent”
Turned up face down, twenty years ago or twenty days from now
A whole life in simple paragraphs, a whole life in simple words,
That blend together if you read too long
That blend together if you never stop to think, that a whole life goes by in a blink of your eye
No highs, no lows. It goes how it goes
