Track Name: Hasard Et Coïncidence
You'll be the song of the summer
Eyes that dance like a flame
Lift me up like no other
I don't know how to be safe

You could be the apologist
The blood spilled on the floor
Love is the masochist that always asks for more

Confessions that feel like a promise
You make me less of a fake
Would you rather be loved or be honest
Can you roll my burden away

You could be the alchemist
Turn the air to gold
Love is the masochist that always asks for more
Track Name: If Your Heart Is Free
I can see you smile from a block away
Through dirty windshields & Market Streets that shimmer in the rain
It's brighter than the light above the clouds between the time zones
That keep us separated

If your heart is free I can never lose
A flight path in my head that always circles back to you
You never have to feel alone

There are nights I don't forget
Your hair & Toms are summer-drenched
You kick them off on the punk house floor & hold your knees against your chest
East coast sobs & dead end jobs are drowned out by the love call of the west

When you're here with me I can never lose
A trigger in my brain that always pulls me back to you
My heart will always be your home

There's a word that lives inside our hearts
That we can't pronounce & that is who we are
Of all the love I've lost & found
You're the only one that's never let me down

If your heart is free I can never lose
A flight path in my head that always circles back to you
When you're here with me I never have to choose
A trigger in my brain that always pulls me back to you

We don't ever have to be alone
Track Name: Contamination Story
A radioactive heart
That you don't want to be touched
What's the half-life of your loss

A dream that fades like the dew
A night that breaks with the moon
And flashes like an undiscovered jewel

Bound by the weight of despair
You can be lighter than the air
Lighter than the summer wind that streaks through your hair

Contamination stories you tell
Of a year-long rocket ride to hell
We're just the versions that we tell ourselves

This is your moment to shine
To be reunited with the light
This could be the version that finally gets it right

Your radioactive heart
That you never want to be touched
What's the half-life of the dark

What's the half-life of your loss

Poem: "Wait" by Galway Kinnell

Track Name: Tunnel Of Love
"I wish I didn't love you so"
Is the cry of the circus freak
Guilt is a sword you swallow
Pride is the fire you breathe
A snakecharmer's eyes are lonely & insatiable
Lost in a town of funhouse mirrors & inflatables

Things I wish I didn't know
Are better left undisturbed
Always the fool that follows
A siren's call in reverse
A fortune teller heart that never leaves the carnival
The curse of a second sight that's blind to the impossible

Blue is all the light that's lost, something's always far away
I'm almost another person when my eyes are open & I'm finally awake

The turn of the ferris wheel
What ever happened to the Tunnel of Love
You'll leave me cold & hollow
As an echo from the gondola

"I wish I didn't love you so"
