Track Name: Melatonin
Trapped again. Trapped, no friends to help me out of myself.

I can't sleep. The world's in front of me.
I can't sleep. The world's in front of me.

It's too far- too far- far, far down to see.

I can't sleep. The world's in front of me.
I can't sleep. The world's in front of me.

I think I know what to do.
Track Name: Your New Name (Phoenix)
The room's filled with smoke, and I see mirrors on the walls.
The wing's tattooed on your upper thigh are just for show.

You were meant for more than this.

You don't belong, we contradict ourselves.
Clear glass fake drinks- clear heels fake love, and orders.

You were meant for more than this, Phoenix.
Track Name: Dusk
When the sun begins to set you can feel the regret of all of the souls who have gone- as if they refuse to move on.

I dream of becoming old, filled with regret at my wake. Before I pinch myself, I'm already young and awake.

I've seen your... I've seen your dreams.
I've seen your... I've seen your dreams.
I've seen your... I've seen your dreams.
Don't leave them... Don't leave them be.
Track Name: A Light
It's all over now. Nobody left to bother. You have them fooled. Now run to save face.

Haunting my dreams. I think it is a good thing. Just hit the light on your way out.

Pictures of you. Pictures of both me and you. No matter what is next, I'm not alone.
