Track Name: By the Moon
I’ve been sleeping with my phone
An arms length away
Waiting on you to call and say
This is the very last time
You interrupt my sleep
You’re counting on me
While I’m counting sheep

No I don’t believe you
And No I will not leave you
Alone, alone
I’ll be on my way soon
Guided by the moon

Oh, oh, oh oh

I ask you what friends are for
If not to have your back
And now sleep is something I lack
Eyes are getting heavy now
The streetlights start to blur
All I keep thinking is hurry uh-uh-up, uh-uh-up

I don’t wanna fail you
But I think I might fail you
Tonight, tonight
I’ll be on my way soon
Guided by the moon

Oh, oh, oh oh
Track Name: Direct Affect
Are you new around these parts
Never seen so many broken hearts
Just walk by
The boys and the girls all cry
Do you know what you do
Or are you clueless

You got this affect on me
And I just can’t hide it
It’s rather direct of me
I know I can’t fight it

I think I’m worth it, baby
Can I call you baby
Or maybe tonight
Can I call you tonight

Why do I deserve this honor
See, without you I know I’m a goner
Search inside
And you’ll find
Without me your life is hazy, too
I know that I sound crazy

You got this affect on me
And I just can’t hide it
It’s rather direct of me
I know I can’t fight it

I think I’m worth it, baby
Can I call you baby
Or maybe tonight
Can I call you tonight
Track Name: Wasting Time
Tell me what you want
Tell me what you need
Tell me that you’re okay x4

Don’t take it personal
When I can’t be
The person you
Pretend to see
I know that you
Still disagree
Don’t take it personal
It’s not you
It’s me

I will waste your time
I will waste your time
I will waste your time
I will waste your time

Tell me what you want
Tell me what you need
Tell me that you’re okay x4

And if I don’t call
Just don’t be surprised
Please don’t let false hope
Fill your head with lies
I don’t wanna be
Someone you despise

I will waste your time
I will waste your time
I will waste your time
I will waste your time

Don’t expect so
Much from me
I just lack the
Sympathy
And if you would be
So kind
Stop wasting your time
Stop wasting your time
Stop wasting your time

Tell me what you want
Tell me what you need
Tell me that you’re okay x4

Don’t take it personal
When I can’t be
The person you
Pretend to see
Don’t take it personal
It’s not you
It’s me

I will waste your time
Track Name: Temporary Love
Humming bird eyes
What a pleasant surprise
That I could hold your attention
Tell me, are you feeling the tension
Oh, I’m talking too much
And there’s a scowl on your luscious lips
An eclipse of the tongues
Could be a quick fix

Oh, it’s fleeting
It’s eating away at me
Temporary, contemporary
Love

Calloused fingertips spending time
Touching skin that isn’t mine
I waste nights trying to chase you
You’re so close I can taste you

Oh, it’s fleeting
It’s eating away at me
Temporary, contemporary
Love

What’ll it take to keep you
What’ll it take to sweep you off your feet
What’ll it take to keep you
What’ll it take to sweep you off your feet

Oh, it’s fleeting
It’s eating away at me
Temporary, contemporary
Love
Track Name: Black Sea
We mount our horses
After several courses
We ride to town
We’ve got our armor
All the black-hearted martyrs
We’re going down

Who would’ve guessed this travesty
The hypocrisy is agony
With wants as endless as the sea
Can’t we live happily simply

The wind is silent
Our voices are violent
Matching our vice
The sales are waving
Fulfilling worthless cravings
Shipping and handling
Half price

Who would’ve guessed this travesty
The hypocrisy is agony
With wants as endless as the sea
Can’t we live happily simply

I think we should give it up, give it up
That way we can live it up, live it up
I think we should give it up, give it up
That way we can live it up, live it up
I think we should give it up, give it up
That way we can live it up, live it up

I think I need a change
Warning this isn’t a drill
I think you need a change
A moral exchange, if you will
I think we need a change
Warning this isn’t a drill
I think we need a change
A moral exchange, if you will
If you will, if you will, if you won’t
We won’t make it
Track Name: She Told Me
What if I said
I have no regrets now
Would you even notice why
I make my bed
And I lie in it somehow
Or maybe I only lie

So I’ll tell her
What she told me then
Yes, I’ll tell her
What she told me

Standing on two stones
Heavy weather
Trying not to care
She’s an actor
I’ll distract
With a worried stare

So I’ll tell her
What she told me then
Yes, I’ll tell her
What she told me

Buy it if you break it
Break it if you want it
Want it if you like it
Like it if you love it
Love it till you hate it
Love it till you hate it

She’s a liar
Till I change my mind
Then she is honest
She’s a buy of what she finds
Till she finds a promise
