Track Name: We Were Two Astronauts
Together
We were two astronauts
In a cardboard spaceship
Never
Taking off the ground, but it felt like flying
When your eyes fell onto mine

And I fell into you
Like a girl down a rabbit hole
The pictures were forming in my head
I followed that rabbit to my death
The longer I sat there crying
Tears of the lonesome were drowning
All those around me

Together
We had traveled far from home
But it never felt strange
With you beside me, but now I’m shrinking
Slipping from your grip
through the cracks of the city

And I fell into you
Like a girl down a rabbit hole
The pictures were forming in my head
I followed that rabbit to my death
The longer I sat there crying
Tears of the lonesome were drowning
All those around me

I’m in wonderland
It’s pleasant when I dream and you’re not there
Go on, take my pulse
No rest for the wicked or the unknown
Track Name: Escape Me
i'm clouded and weary, unwilling
safe in a place of content
shake up my world for i'm trying
to bring out the best in me yet

what is my truth?
what am I trying to prove?
there's no one I love at this moment
is there something wrong?
I thought there was something to add
but the words have escaped me

i'm worried but don't know the reasons
i'm fearful and selfish and wise
a few hearts i long to be near, but
i can't give the love i have in mind

what is my way?
what am I trying to say?
I've fallen in a river
tossed every which way
i'm caught in a blackout
trying to spend my time right
your words are what keep me awake at night
Track Name: Worth
Holding the room, you turn out the light
Cut out your share and get home by night fall
Taking your time, you hold out the flame
Burning the dollars i made for the day

You fought me for the best seat in the house
Was it worth the view?
From where i’m standing
I can see the world for what it is
But can you?

Shutting my eyes I’m ready to dive
Who’s the receiver and who will be bitter
Standing alone you glare at the sun
They’re miles behind you but you’re on the run
