Track Name: Minor Keys
So when it’s all figured out, plain and simple, this is about coming up just shy, about not living up to certain expectations which might or might not be our own. You know, sometimes it’s hard to draw a line between what’s our own and what’s - well - the other.

So what’s hidden behind, beneath or maybe even in those songs in minor keys is failure - a document of failure, urging us to push on. Whereto? I’ve not the slightest idea.

And even if I had, it’d still just be my idea, not yours. After all, we are in this all alone.

And I guess it’s well known, this line about borrowing a line, because there’s just this one line so good you couldn’t make it up on your own - you failed at making it up on your own, you know. And the one I’m thinking of is the one about the chance being just as fat as a unionist bureaucrat that life we want live ain’t the one we’re looking at.
Track Name: Loom
turned out nice, that dream you built.
look at that - look at that lawn and that picket fence.

lots of space
and rooms to spare
enough for two lives
might fit just fine

car in the driveway
oh, make it two,
one for every life
you try to fit in one.

fitting in, moving up
and moving about.
fitting in, moving up
- what's this all about?

and the stuff
you didn't care for
now's the stuff
that you live for

everything is paid for,
yes, everything is paid for.
Track Name: Moon
blood of the moon
fire of the sun
someone set it up
must have set it up
someone set it up
must have set us up

cold grey rock
hot mill steam
sirens and silences
great set up hearts

blood cross my beak
feathers all black
his ghost
breathing down my neck

breathing down my neck

the real truth about it
is no one gets it right
the real truth about it
is we're all supposed to try

we'll try and know
whatever we try
we'll be gone but not forever

the real truth about it
is no one gets it right
the real truth about it
is we're all supposed to try
Track Name: Wonderland
monday morning
tuesday morning, wednesday morning
thursday morning
friday morning, saturday morning
that’s exposure
just one day, regain composure
full disclosure
you might want to think that over
9 to 5
9 to 6, 8 to 7
and you strive
to unwind before eleven

wonderland
we’re all means to just one end
Futureworld
feels more like a netherworld
hurry on
before long, you’ll come undone
wide awake
you can’t tell what is at stake
anxiousness
no way out of this tristesse
feeling trapped
you will just have to adapt

fake life
fuck life
