I left in a hurricane, I didn’t want to say goodbye I was in another place the past and present could not find I was on the hunt, don’t lead me out I was on the hunt, don’t lead me out, don’t bleed me out I left in a hurricane, I didn’t want to seem uptight Drifting in this circling place with no up or down or left from right I was on the hunt, don’t lead me out I was on the hunt, don’t lead me out, don’t lead me out I left in a hurricane, I didn’t want to say goodbye I didn’t want to say

Any time, any time my mind decides what survives As a memory just swept behind, for example, this useless line And all the while, all the while, am I losing the time before you died? If thoughts do fade, it’s no choice of mine And if through dreams we communicate could that be fine? And if through dreams we communicate could that be fine? Let it go, let it go Everybody’s swimming Let it go, let it go Everybody’s swimming Everybody’s swimming Any time, any time my mind decides what survives Am I losing space? Am I losing time? And all the while, all the while Do I dream in lies of black and white? If thoughts do fade, it’s no choice of mine And if through dreams we communicate could that be fine? And if through dreams we communicate could that be fine? Let it go, let it go Everybody’s swimming Let it go, let it go Everybody’s swimming Everybody’s swimming Everybody’s swimming Everybody’s gone

Air Control 03:10
It’s not me you’re waiting for on this phone line It’s not me you’re pining for in this tag line It’s not me you’re aiming for in this punch line It’s not me you’re dying for in this life line Call air control, by all means, yeah by all means Call air control, by all means, yeah by all means By all means, yeah by all means, yeah It’s not me you’re waiting for on this phone line It’s not me you’re gunning for in this skyline It’s not me that’s crashing down in this lifetime It’s not me you’re dying for in this life line Call air control, by all means, yeah by all means Call air control, by all means, yeah by all means By all means, yeah by all means By all means, yeah by all means, yeah

I live for you I ask if you want me to I listen for you Even if you’d never ask me to And even if you go, I stay with you And even if you leave, you know it’s true I stand with you The better steps I take are just passing through Distraught for you I’ll lead if you ask me to And even if you go, I stay with you And even if you leave, you know it’s true And even if you go, I stay with you And even if you leave, you know it’s true I am what I am Worn out mountaintop and paper thin When I’m with you We’re sand in an hourglass that cannot move And even if you go, I stay with you And even if you leave, you know it’s true And even if you go, I stay with you And even if you leave, you know it’s true

Sent with the worst to stand in line You said that your best was redefined And you lie, and you lie And you lie, and you lie The present moment in rewind Your lack of cleverness complies Stand in line, just stand in line (because you know) Stand in line, just stand in line (or because you don’t) You, locked in this scene Just shut your mouth and settled down But true, ethereal blue A flash of life, to blur the lines Sent with the worst to stand in line Said that your best was redefined And you lie, and you lie And you lie, and you lie And you lie, and you lie And you lie, and you You, locked in this scene Just shut your mouth and settled down But true, ethereal blue A flash of life, to blur the lines Line just stand in line, just stand in line, just stand in line, just stand in line, just stand in line, just stand in line, just stand in line, just stand in line

Runaway 04:16
Run away the time is gone Run away the time is gonna lie for life Run away the time is gone Run away the time is gonna lie for life Anything anyone brought to the table Anything for the neighbors to sit and think and rethink Yes, anything anyone brought to the table Anything for the neighbors to sit and think (is the time...) and rethink (is the time over?) Anywhere where your mind will wander Anywhere when you’re not allowed to say goodbye, goodbye Anywhere where your mind will wander Anywhere when you’re not allowed to say goodbye, goodbye Winter’s biting cold But in the running waters find your home Run away the time is gone Run away the time is gonna lie for life Run away the time is gone Run away the time is gonna lie (is the time…) for life (is the time over?) Run away the time is Run away the time is Run away the time is Run away the time is

Time is not the end of my hope and destinations in you by my side and slow drift into the tide but time is a lie in you whoa time is not the end of me and my destinations with you by the tides going home to our own location but you are a lie in time whoa
