Track Name: My Muse, My Muse
I've been feeling so cold,
I think my window is broken,
But I haven't noticed,
No, I have felt no difference,
At all.

We've all been feeling so lonely,
And my dreams, my dreams, my dreams, won't let me sleep, peacefully,
But I think I felt this last year,
No, I'm positive I did.

My beds and lovers have changed,
But I have remained,
And time will pass, time will pass, time will pass,
But some things will never change.

My muse, my muse, my ghost, please let me be!
I'd love to stay with you, but it's not easy,
With all this moving around and on behind closed doors,
In different cities where the wind will calm your bones.

But we'll never change,
No, we'll stay the same,
And time will pass, time will pass, time will pass,
But I will never change.
Track Name: New Wave
My baby left me on the side of the road,
She had to make a work of art,
My baby left me with sticks and stones,
For a girl and a gun.

She traded her colors for a life of black and white,
'Cause it's cheaper and easier to maintain,
But she's shakin', she's shakin', she's falling apart,
And she'll cut you, cut you, cut you without order!

My baby left me for the new wave,
My baby left me for the new way of making love.
Track Name: Stay With Me
Oh babe,
I love the way you slide,
Stay with me,
Slide all the time, don't go,
I love the way you smile,
Stay with me,
Smile all the time, don't go,
I love the way you're mine,
Stay with me,
Hold me all the time.

You make it all so fine.
Track Name: Sutton Dewey - If They See Us, We're Alive (Duckspeak Cover)
Almost lost an eye looking out on the lake,
Almost lost an eye looking out on the lake,
And they don't take very kindly to strangers,
And they don't take very kindly to strangers.

But we'll find our way over,
And we'll hope that it's more,
Than some old sewage water,
On an old empty shore,

But maybe that's all there is.

Almost lost an arm trying to swim it,
Almost lost an arm trying to swim it,
And they don't take very kindly to strangers,
And they don't take very kindly to strangers.

But we'll find our way past them,
And we'll hope that there's more,
Than some old broken fences,
On an old empty shore,

But maybe that's all there is.

They don't take very kindly to strangers.
