Track Name: As Long as I've Longed
As long as I’ve longed I have longed to be part of a core.
As long as I’ve longed I have longed to be something worth more.
But headaches and failures are piling all over the floor,
and I’ve got to kick through them or I’ll never reach the door.
Track Name: The Faded Sin
Freaking out on my scene
Not sure what I really mean
I want it all
Taking turns pulling teeth
Not sure what they want from me
I want it all
I can’t stand living with the falling snow,
and people always asking where I want to go
I want it all
Not just some
Not just part
A house
A wife
A career in art

I can’t stand being in a noisy crowd,
but I don’t want to be alone
I want it all
And I’m half-spent standing in the falling rain,
while the other half is caught it with the p-p-p-pain
I want it all
I can’t stand picking out one place to go
and people always asking what I fucking know
I want it all
And not for love
Not for fun
Not for any good reason

The night keeps playing back the faded sin
People want to know where the hell I’ve been
The night keeps killing off my friends and kin
People never know all the shit I’m in
I can’t keep living with the faded sin
People want to know where the hell I’ve been
Can’t keep living like it’s kill or kin
People never know all the shit I’m in
Can’t keep living like I’ll never figure out what I’m supposed to be at all
Or where do I want to go?
Ah, what do I fucking know?
That’s all right
It’s only life, right?
Track Name: Carolina
Carolina’s looking for a place where she can stay
She just needs to sort some things out over the next few days
She just wants to talk and be heard
She wants to be seen
Carolina’s dying,
but no more than you or me
She just wants to feel forgiven
She just wants to breathe
Carolina’s dying,
but no more than you or me

Carolina’s combing through some boxes near the street
She thinks she should reconsider everything she needs
She just wants to have some great sex
She just wants a beer
Carolina’s dying,
but that’s neither there nor here
She just wants to hear true silence
She just wants to read
Carolina’s dying,
but no more than you or me

She just wants to believe things are bigger than they seem
Carolina’s dying,
but no more than you or me
Track Name: Had a Dream
I once had a dream about you and me in a brightly lit city
We were flying so fast down the street
Everything was electricity
When we stopped I just looked at my feet
You always knew I thought you were pretty
I didn’t know if you felt similarly
Then the light went white and I woke up

I met you in a bar for a drink
It had been a few years (maybe three)
But once we started to talk I could see
Why you meant so much to me
I tried to kiss you before you had to leave
You said “We can’t just do whatever we please”
You got married to somebody last week
I think it’s high time that I woke up
Track Name: The Tunnel at Night
I’m not giving off the right kind of madness
just a collection of some ticks and flaws
You’re not giving me the right kind of sadness
just a connection to some things I don’t want,
What do you want?

I’m not killing off the right kind of character
nor am I connecting to the crowd at my feet
You’re not giving me the right kind of freedom
just a connection to some things I don’t need
What do you want?

So you want to survive?
Well try living with this now
Oh, now you want to live twice?
Just doing nothing
Doing lines
Decide to do what you like
Until that hurts,
Then maybe try to do what’s right
Is the call for help coming from inside?
Does it feel like you’re driving through the tunnels at night?
