Track Name: Night of Lonely Zombies
I felt you. I felt you and then you were gone.
I wondered. I wondered if you'd ever known,
What the hell just happened here.
I came alone and now it's only me,
And I'm sitting here at home in the dark watching zombies on the screen.

Monday, your voice rang out through the halls.
Friday, you don't return my call.
Louder now and never ceasing,
Frequency awakens feeding,
And I'm sitting here alone in the dark watching zombies on the screen.
Track Name: Broken Record
I know your record is broken,
Spinning around in the same old spot.
Attention span makes you think this part is new,
You've just forgot.
Track Name: Josie's Cabin
She lived in a cabin, newpaper walls,
She walked through the canyons, corralled the hogs,
She fought the local farmers for water rights,
And finally lost the strength to pursue the fight.

Oh, Josie, what ever happened to you?
We used to skip together on the way to school.
Oh, Josie, it doesn't have to be this way.
I miss my sister every day.

The people are cold, but the desert is warm.
We fought three wars while she worked on the farm.
The loneliness made her heart grow fond,
Of the warm embrace from the canyon arms.

Down a sun-bleached path where no one knows,
She heard the faint murmur of the painter's ghost.
She brewed mint tea in the evening light,
And dreamed the desert stars were fireflies.

Oh, Josie, before I ever told those lies,
We used to skip stones and catch fireflies.
Oh, Josie, it doesn't have to be this way.
I miss my sister every day.
Track Name: Fondness
The moon is gone and the sky is grey,
Let's head up to the mountain anyway.
I don't mind, it'll be okay,
As long as I'm with you.

A moonlight hike with no moon in sight,
Can't catch the favor of a guiding light,
I don't mind, it'll be alright,
As long as I'm with you.

Before we knew it the clouds broke free,
Orion's belt's in the canopy,
Not a sound came through the trees,
The silence wrapped us through.
Track Name: Survival
In the midst of all your fears,
You've come to me for years.
I'd leave but it's time,
It's time for you to feed.
It's time to fill a need.
You're never quite sure what I'm good for.

Though I never done you harm,
You approach me with alarm.
Then you take a step back,
Back to a retreat.
Your hunger wants to eat.
You're never quite sure if I'm gonna show.

Survival never felt this way before.

Then the sun stains your eyes,
And the dust is in your coat.
Your passing glare denies,
Denies the way you feel,
Denies the urge to steal.
You're never quite sure if I'm gonna show.
Track Name: I'd Let You
I'd let you sleep through morning even though the clothes are wrinkled.
I'd let you eat the last donut even though it has sprinkles.

It's only a moment in time, but here it is.
We'll hold it tonight, it's all we have.

I'll miss your high school T-shirt, full of rips and holes.
I won't dance, not without you; 1999.

It's only a moment in time, but here it is.
Let's hold it inside, as all we have.

I'd listen to what you have to tell me.
I'll turn off the tube.
Track Name: Close Your Eyes
Close your eyes, it's okay that you can't see me.
Here at night screaming out all over the plan.
Low alive, I know that you don't owe me.
And I, I and then one more I'll go away.

Close your eyes, it's okay that you can't see me.
It's alright, I know that you don't need me anymore.
