Track Name: Satellites Crashing
Please darling do not fight
I haven’t got the strength tonight
Let’s just agree we’re not at war
Cannot fight it any more

You and I are just satellites crashing
Falling stars when ever we disagree
Here we are satellites crashing
Filling the sky with beautiful debris

I don’t care who’s wrong or right
Don’t reengage or reignight
Plant the flag upon the shore
And drop the armor that we wore

Because you and I…
Track Name: Sleep Spun Brown
You invite destruction
To phase your thoughts away
And cling to visions
That you’ll begin to feel some day
You get to feeling nervous
Of what the day might bring
You’re up, you’re down, you’re talking
And no one is listening

Leaves falling down
Sleep spun brown
I don’t understand your reason
You make your start, and fall apart
In this change of season

You held up the currents
But then your knees gave way
You turn in to tomorrow
To find yourself someday
You’re in, you’re out, you’re under
You stand then trip and fall
While you stood there laughing
Your image lost it all

Leaves falling down...

A look into the mirror
An actor gone too far
Regret has found you hiding
And knows just who you are
A scream erupts to surface
But there is no sound
You turn the letter is fading
As you go underground

Leaves falling down...
