Track Name: Plan.
It plays on a loop
A whole tape full of white noise
The way the light is shifting
The way the sound settles

Message on a wire
Flares and signal fires

Everything I wrote
Scrubbed clean from the wall
Was never really there at all.

These things just come to me at night.
Track Name: Supermoon
Put the pin back in the grenade
Don't let me distract you
This colossal mess that you made
Living in the vacuum
They peel you off the pavement:
"First time in a minute;
otherwise behaving."
Just don't drop that gimmick

It's always cloudy when there's a supermoon in the sky
Found the sociopath and the secret supply

Keep your shit together.

Control yourself for just a second
Don't upset the balance
Product functions as expected:
Monochromatic palette
I've got bad ideas for days, man
I keep them all clenched up in my left hand
It's always cloudy when there's a supermoon in the sky

Keep your shit together.
Track Name: Night Maneuvers
Fuck all of this noise
I've seen you on the TV
Pitch-corrected voice
Threatening to eat me

Everyone better lay low tonight
It's starting to get weird out there.

I can dismantle it overnight
I can't protect it
I have defected
I can dismantle it overnight
All of you look the same anyway

This got out of hand quick
These kids don't know they're starving
Someone had to step in
Subvert this shitty party
Slight of hand and night maneuvers

Everyone better lay low tonight
It's starting to get weird out there.

I can dismantle it overnight
I can't protect it
I have defected
I can dismantle it overnight
All of you look the same anyway
Track Name: Stay Close
I wasn't gonna go anywhere for a while
There is fraudulence in the smile
And I always have to make it about me
And you don't fake your feelings in your sleep
Do you, baby?

I need to find a place
I think I've lost my compass
I don't think I could find you
I don't know how I got here

In case I lose you somewhere
Stay close
Stay close to me.
Track Name: Turn the Lights Down
The drive could last forever
I do not know where I am
This is probably not my home
I didn't have a plan for this one
I am mostly still in control
Just let me sleep
Turn the lights down.

In whispers and murmurs
You do not remember a thing
This is probably just a dream
Our time is running out, love
We are very close to the end
Come on, grab your friends
Turn the lights down.
