Track Name: Lemonade
Waves on the shore
Haven't felt this cool before
Rays, come on down
Light me up, spare the ground

Before the sun collapses in red
I must approach your handsome head
And ask if I might savor your grin
My darling, oh

As I'm walking down the beach it seems to me
You're the only one that I can clearly see
Lying in the bed that keeps each of us warm
While outside the other folks brace for the storm

Rain streaks the glass
Will this gloom ever pass?
Cold barrels in
Where's the heat there once had been?

Before the autumn paints it all gray
I must get back to that day
When sandy threads covered your skin
My darling, oh

As I'm walking down the beach it seems to me
You're the only one that I can clearly see
Lying in the bed that keeps each of us warm
While outside the other folks brace for the storm

Before we both shall go our own way,
There's still so much I need to say
I've waited countless hours and days
For your lemonade
Track Name: Lost Children
We're all just lost children
Though our bodies will age
We each play our part
To stand out on the stage
All the time we spent
And all the places we went
The things that we meant
Reduced to words on a page

Tell me boy are you undecided
Is this a love unrequited?
Tell me boy are you undecided
Is this a love unrequited?

As we grow we regress
The cold thickens our skin
As we brush off the mess
That we find ourselves in
We've known all along
What we're doing is wrong
But we've gotta stand strong
And cover it up with a grin

Tell me boy are you undecided
Is this a love unrequited?
Tell me boy are you undecided
Is this a love unrequited?

Can you feel?
Can you feel?
Is it real?
Am I yours to steal?
When it breaks
When it breaks
Is it fake?
Am I yours to take?

Can you feel?
Can you feel?
Is it real?
Am I yours to steal?
Is it yours to end?
Was it just pretend?
Were we even friends?
We're just lost children

We're all just lost children
We're all just lost children

Tell me boy are you undecided
Is this a love unrequited?
Tell me boy are you undecided
Is this a love unrequited?
Track Name: Shadows
It came with such ease
When you were just a child
You were always so wild
Yeah, you always smiled
You used to climb trees
Until you blistered your hands
Built giant cities
In the desert sands

You had such big dreams
For somebody so small
But those trees were too tall
Waves broke down the walls
Now all this neglect
Has left you alone
Fearless architect
Scared of your own shadow

The shadows of yesterday
They used to stretch so far
The places you used to play
No longer part of who you are

It came with such ease
When you were just a child
You were always so wild
Yeah, you always smiled
You used to climb trees
Until you blistered your hands
Built giant cities
In the desert sands

The shadows of yesterday
They used to stretch so far
The places you used to play
No longer part of who you are

The shadows of yesterday
They used to stretch so far
The places you used to play
No longer part of who you are
Track Name: So Use Me
In our room, there's garbage on the floor
And in our bed, there's a parasite
Oh wait - that's you who's clinging to my arm
And sucking out my energy

You take me, you take me for granted
I give you all I got
You save me, you save me from myself
So use me all you want

All our friends have yet to see the day
When I emerge from your gauzy threads
For now, I'll let you fold me in your web
Yes, I will be your prey

You take me, you take me for granted
I give you all I got
You save me, you save me from myself
So use me all you want

Control me and know me
Enfold me, expose me

You take me, you take me for granted
I give you all I got
You save me, you save me from myself
So use me all you want

All you want
All you want
All you want
Track Name: Wolves
The way his hands always find her neck
Afraid and yet she grows interested

Crowded nightclubs, lonely bars
Doesn't matter where they are
There's potential every place
For the time when they'll interface

The way her teeth bleed a piercing light
Drawn in and yet he fears the bite

Crowded nightclubs, lonely bars
Doesn't matter where they are
This seduction won't slow down
Til their bodies hit the ground

Crowded nightclubs, lonely bars
Doesn't matter where they are
The illusion of amour
Not quite what they bargained for
Track Name: Tightrope
So this is the story that she mutters to herself
I'm perfectly happy without the hazards of someone else
Yeah I've been down that road
Bought the life you sold me
And now I...

I can't go back there
I can't go back to you
Just please forget me
And who you changed me to

Her daughter was playing with the neighbor boy last night
And she couldn't help thinking, would he place her on a tightrope?
And force her to walk
Though she's sure to drop
Out of sight...

I can't go back there
I can't go back to you
You mustn't let me
Though part of me needs to

She looked in the mirror, but she only saw his face
No ring on her finger, and yet tethered to this place
Nothin' left to lose
And no choice to choose
Still she'd cry

I can't go back there
I can't go back to you
Yet who will stop me?
What else can I do?

So this is the story that she mutters to herself
