Track Name: Adonais
John was born listening to inescapable cries
John was born drinking and preparing his goodbyes
John was born too late to modernize
Nations fell, none too wise

Slow conversations on a speeding train
Drinks in hand, cold glory to gain
We're old souls in the newest of worlds

Across the plains, John scattered his youth
From the mountaintops, John questioned the truth
Where is the beauty that we're destined to find
Is home a place in our hearts or our minds

Slow conversations on a speeding train
Drinks in hand, cold glory to gain
We're old souls in the newest of worlds

Our hearts were just too heavy so we left them behind
Our hearts were just too heavy so we left them behind

John died under open skies
Bright stars fell into his fading eyes
Legacy stays lucid in romantic minds
Love and Fame loosen their iron binds

Slow conversations on a speeding train
Drinks in hand, cold glory to gain
We're old souls in the newest of worlds
Track Name: Vesper
I don't even know you
But your light echoes in my mind for days
You don't even know me
But your smile says come what may

Oh, we're vesper
Fading long before the sunrise

I'll love you in the mornings darling
Our sweetness prolific as the morning dew
But when evening falls
My love grows weary of you

Oh, we're vesper
Fading long before the sunrise

Fiction is the new fact
Dusk is the new dawn
Our bodies are still intact
But our hearts have up and gone

Oh, we're vesper
Fading long before the sunrise

I don't even know you
But your light echoes in my mind for days
You don't even know me
But your smile says come what may

Oh, we're vesper
Fading long before the sunrise
Track Name: We Want More
Like a searchlight you fall on me
Time's up and I'm running out of lies
I'll fight this gravity
Turn weightless and say my goodbyes

A thousand pleads can't bring me back
We've veered too far off the road
What have we become
Too afraid to reap what we have sowed

We want we want we want we want more
We want we want we want we want more
We need we need we need we need more
We need we need we need we need more

All of us are different
None of us unique
On the brink of monotony
My my my, this is bleak

Cold wind rushes in from the north
And for a moment it feels like change
But when the temporary rush is gone
These problems remain just the same

We want we want we want we want more
We want we want we want we want more
We need we need we need we need more
We need we need we need we need more

We can be anything we want to be
But why is it so goddamn hard to break free
We can be anything we want to be
But why is it so goddamn hard

We want we want we want we want more
We want we want we want we want more
We need we need we need we need more
We need we need we need we need more

Like a searchlight you fall on me
Time's up and I'm running out of lies
I'll fight this gravity
Turn weightless and say my goodbyes
Track Name: Revolving Door
I cannot describe the way you make it feel like spring
I cannot describe the emptiness your silence brings
But I cannot pretend I don't remember those late-night confessions
And I cannot pretend I don't remember those late-night insinuations

Someday, somehow
We'll stop turning in these revolving doors
Someday, somehow
We'll start loving and we'll stop keeping score

I cannot expect your silhouette to mesh with mine
And I cannot expect you to take this rusty heart and make it shine
But I cannot disguise these bloodshot, loveshot eyes
And I cannot disguise these maudlin, half-hearted lies

Someday, somehow
We'll stop turning in these revolving doors
Someday, somehow
We'll start loving and we'll stop keeping score

I cannot deny being the rogue Venus to your volatile Mars
And I cannot deny the exquisite pain of these fresh scars
But I cannot resist having another go
And I cannot resist hearing you say, 'I told you so'

Someday, somehow
We'll stop turning in these revolving doors
Someday, somehow
We'll start loving and we'll stop keeping score
Track Name: Crescendo
I've had too much to drink tonight
And I have too much to say
You're looking into my eyes tonight
And it's just too much to take

Someday you'll find another girl
And I'll find another boy
But tonight we've found each other

So what are we waiting for?

Stars are barely out tonight
And the moon is being shy
You've got to catch an early flight
But tonight, our lives are burning high

Someday you'll find another girl
And I'll find another boy
But tonight we've found each other

So what are we waiting for?

Deep and distant, your eyes are too hard to read
This crescendo is climbing to its peak

Someday you'll find another girl
And I'll find another boy
But tonight we've found each other

So what are we waiting for?
