Track Name: High Hopes
Driving over these hills
Five miles closer to no where
I'm leaving my body behind
Too young to be satisfied

We've got high hopes
High hopes

Dropped off my sister
She quit her job last week
Mountains in the sky
Form a parade with no reply
To the endless questions that torment me

We've got high hopes
High hopes
We've got high hopes
High hopes

There's no turning around
No backing down from this

All the Christmas trees adorn your neck
All the planets are chanting
We're dancing on the precipice
Of something I don't understand
It's bittersweet because we need it
We're high!

Illumination damned
Embraced by mystery

We've got high hopes
High hopes
We've got high hopes
High hopes
Track Name: Sound Machine
Machine Isolated
Skin encapsulated
Pulse in the bloodstream
You can barely feel it
I dreamt of her singing
Our lips slowly meeting

Suddenly alive
Time might break us

She's a ghost
Haunting the neutral ground
Drifting through street cars
Muses strike up a tune

Melodies and phrases
Are forming
Life is taking shape

She never stays
A thief for the night

Time might break us
