Track Name: Comet
night wonder
our second moon
bright mirror for the stars
you led us out into the dark

we've looked up for centuries
into your sacred home
you step alone, crystal spark
my comet

I see wild, bright yearning
that quivers deep in your eyes
immune to lies
some ancient hope

that iris broke the sleep
from the center of my chest
show me your best
brilliant stroke
my comet

this is my faltering's
silent reappearing
deep in my blood
this is my faltering's
desperate reappearing
deep in my blood

adore you, I adore you
and I don't know why
adore you, I adore you
and I don't know why
you never can be mine
you never will be mine
but I adore you and I don't know why
Track Name: King of Nothing
I'll sleep away the autumn at home
with the moon rising up through the ceiling
the trees all crumbling down to their bones
the weeping eucalyptus bending

when I wake up
when I wake up I'll be king of nothing
and why should I care
why should I care
I'm the king of nothing

who put these little lies in my head
what lives inside all of these secrets
we're crumbling crumbling down in your bed
these rumors too sad to believe in
so I won't believe in them

I'll sleep away the autumn at home
the trees all crumbling down to their bones
the moon rising up through the ceiling
these rumors all I have to believe in
and I won't believe in them
Track Name: Leave It Alone
with better faces all around me
a bitter future is upon me
I'd open up my eyes
but I can't leave it alone, leave it alone, leave it alone
and why should I?

I can see my father coming out
yeah my ghost is growing in the mirror
looking clearer than my eyes
and I can't leave it alone, leave it alone, leave it alone
and why should I?

and what the hell would make me see on the bright side?
am I freaking out? is this some puzzle now?
is there poison in my blood?
poison in my blood!
why can't I leave it alone, leave it alone, leave it alone?
and why should I?

my only pictures are of other pretty pictures
my ideas are nothing
my ideas are bare as bones
barren as my bones
and I can't leave it alone
Track Name: I'll Be the Fire
look at the sky
we're gonna take that sky
gonna take it for ourselves
we're gonna take that sky
we're gonna take that sky
and rain down from the clouds

isn't the wind still blowing?
we're gonna catch that wind
like diamonds catch the sun
we're gonna catch that wind
we're gonna catch that wind
and we'll fall down when we're done

i'll be the fire
if you'll be the fuel
and together we'll go rolling down the hill
and if you'll be a fighter
I'll be a flame
we'll go wild if you only say you will
and I know that you will

look at the way you're dancing
well I can't look away
I see you burn that sand to glass
and when you dance that way
when you dance that way
you turn a poor man's soul to ash

come on can you catch me
can you catch me
i come running for the city
can you catch me
can you catch me
i come running for the sea
can you catch me
can you catch me
would you jump across a highway?
can you catch me
can you catch me
no you can't catch me
Track Name: Witness
this is a history
of things that never happened
of things that never happened
between you and me
I'd rather be unhappy
I'd rather be unhappy
than lose my memory
of all the things that never happened

I was there
painted into the picture
some hatchback summer
I was there
just a boy with a blister
you wouldn't remember
but I was there
too unsure to make a sound
but I wrote it all down

You were mine
by the water together
with no dark figure there
you were mine
tied a string round your finger
I felt much better
you were mine
I was sure, and you were proud
and I wrote it all down
