Track Name: Homecoming
Walk forward in glory
Look forward in earnest
Sing songs of mighty yesterdays
But don't linger on the verses

You’ll come away
You’ll come away
With a better understanding

There is no homecoming
By now you know there never was
There's just the stories we tell ourselves
There's no denouement

Step by step
Page by page
Write it all

Always so surprised
Always so alive

Close your eyes
Sleep tonight, dream of distant days
We're hard-wired for story
In all our hidden places

Wake up now
Face it all
Track Name: Unheilschwanger Boom
You come into my house?
You gonna give me that lip?
You think you're going to bring the pain but
You're just gonna get hit

We aren't afraid of your network
Your conspiracy
We'll scream the truth right in your face
We'll shine a light so all can see

We are the ones who hold the power
You'll know our weight when we enter the room
Thrumming thunder from our footsteps
Fear the sound of our big, bad, boom

You think you know our weak points?
You can’t take us apart
We don’t even need a reason
To shoot straight for the heart

When you feel the pressure drop
When you hear that sound
Then you’ll feel your stomach fall
And that’s when you go down
Track Name: NOU NOU PAK
You come into my house?
You gonna give me that lip?
You think you're going to bring the pain but
You're just gonna get hit

We aren't afraid of your network
Your conspiracy
We'll scream the truth right in your face
We'll shine a light so all can see

We are the ones who hold the power
You'll know our weight when we enter the room
Thrumming thunder from our footsteps
Fear the sound of our big, bad, boom

You think you know our weak points?
You can’t take us apart
We don’t even need a reason
To shoot straight for the heart

When you feel the pressure drop
When you hear that sound
Then you’ll feel your stomach fall
And that’s when you go down
Track Name: Kayaköy
We built this place on bones
On ideas we hold dear
On hearts that know no fear
On streets that never take you home

We built this place above
Those holy christian ghosts
Carving into ancient stones
Our everlasting love

We belong to you and all

It started with a name
Very much like you
Like any other point of view
Life stretched out the same

In 1923
All we had was taken
In 1957
The earthquake threw us in the sea

And the walls are coming down
Like the paint fades in the church
The folks that live here now
Gaze wistfully at where we were

The lesson stays the same
No matter where you come from
There’s always so much left
After you’re done
Track Name: 40 Is The New Sexx
However this goes down tonight
I'm ecstatic it's you that's here with me
I waited and worked
So long
Tonight we make love
So long

Take your time
tonight,
Diamonds and Pearls
Dirty Sweet,
Finally
you're my girl

You might be surprised, if you ask
At the kinds of things I'm down to try
I've wanted this so bad
for so long
I want to be with you
for so long

what's your definition of sexy baby?
what do you call pornography?
don't you know I'll love you 'til it hurts me, baby?
don't you think it's time you got dirty with me?
Track Name: Nijmah
The stars in your eyes
The stars on your lips
The stars in your voice
The stars in your fist

You sparkled; the hottest searing light
So many fell before you, dismissed in the night
There's nothing like the limelight of your gaze

The best things aren't easy they chide
The storm of your love sacrificed my sky
Giving up, diving in - the gift that raged

I see stars, then you smile at me
I see stars, and touch my cheek
I see stars, coming into my reach

I never deserved to shoot for the moon
I landed among the stars and then fell through
There's no light here since I've been blinded

I've often imagined floating in the void of space
Airless, frozen spinning galaxies
Somewhere I can escape the stars

I see stars, then you sneer at me
I see stars, and turn my cheek
I see stars, but the sky's too big for me

Blurring out the world in a star washed blaze
My hand in yours a soothing cage
I think I should leave, then You remind me of the stars

I see stars, then you smile at me
I see stars, and slap my cheek
I see stars, tears bursting light to streaks
I see stars, then you smile at me
I see stars, and touch my cheek
I see stars, so far from my reach
Track Name: That One Friend Almost Every Night
Everybody’s got that one friend and you know what I mean
The one who leaves you face-palmed and confused
Everybody’s got that one friend who can’t help making a scene
If you don’t know who they are then you better make sure it isn't you
Track Name: Danser Comme Un Bébé
When you're asleep
Oh my little one
Do you dream you can run?

When you're asleep
Oh my darling boy
Are your thoughts of dancing in the sun?

Let your baby-head bobble
Walk with a wobble
Take the corners slow
What's around them you don't know

When you're awake
Ah, my life my heart
Your eyes shine so smart

When you're awake
Ah my darling girl
You kick your feet, ready to depart
Track Name: Basura
Life is quiet
Life is good
Sleep by your side
Just like I know I should
But suburban life
Requires secrets
Every Thursday
The trash goes out

Basura
No one knows
Because no one wants to
Basura
I'll be gone real soon
I wake up the moon

Death is silent
So am I
I'm in this bed
One last time
My next life
Is waiting for me
Just as soon as I
Take the trash out
Track Name: Pakas Taabarats
Welcome to the hall of fame
Take any seat you wish, we don’t care what your name is
We should just say farewell until forever
Because I know I’ll never see you again

When the final tally is taken
And all emotion falls away
That's your heart that is breaking

Everyone ends up here, eventually
Their reasons are all pretty much the same

Farewell forever
We are ghosts now, and we are gone
We were warriors
Now we’re lost
Like everyone

Welcome to the end of days
Languages are lost, here; we all know what you’re saying
There are no more journeys to take
All of us are just waiting, waiting for our chance to say
