Desert sunrise six twenty one Rising just like fate Baby you know this is never the end If you trust the world All I can do is smile As you soften your eyes And draw curves with your questions ‘Til there’s nothing left to say but someday Infinite destination You’re every dream I ever had We’re just pilgrims dancing unstuck in time Infinite destination Any life you can have Dancing forever free from time The future has its enemies, too They don’t like people like me; they don’t like people like you In other words, you got a beautiful attitude I never take it for granted How your eyes reverse time Soft as day breaks and fades the night away Infinite destination You’re every dream I ever had We’re just pilgrims dancing unstuck in time Infinite destination Every life you ever had Dancing forever free from time Infinite destination (You’re) every dream I ever have Just a pilgrim dancing unstuck in time

we got a long road ahead settle down. settle back. settle in. don’t you know that we’re gonna have to work until we’re dead? we’ve got such a long road ahead full of naked feelings illumination you know all those things you just can’t teach but there you go again laughing at real life i guess that’s the way things will always be it’s been a long slow descent energy lost. energy found. energy spent. you know it takes years to make an overnight collapse it’s been a long slow descent we got a long road ahead don’t look down. don’t look back. don’t fit in. let’s have the last good time with what little we got left we got a long road ahead screw cynicism and useless language you know, all those things we say instead of what we mean but there you go again laughing at real life i guess that’s the way things will always be

You never know just how long you have Before you go Away So take back life; hide it from view It will only be us and the wind Times are down but we’re ok Lines are down but we’re ok We’re ok. You never know just how many times You get to say Hello Come out with me take the f-train Into the night We’ll disappear Times are down but we’re ok Lines are down but we’re ok We’re ok. When you send light into the world It scatters and reflects But it never dies

gotta get out of echo lake is it too much to ask to challenge your fate? gotta get out of echo lake gotta get out before it’s too late it’s never enough to know to jump aboard that train. schedule me some piece of mind let me fall into easy times cover me with memory til i’m blind gotta let out all the collar seams it’s a mouthful to swallow in someone else’s dreams i got to get out as real as this may seem gotta get out of echo lake it’s too much to ask to re-sign your fate gotta get out before it’s too late everything just fades

Hey I need you to bail me out again I don’t know that I can I’ve got artifacts from a war I need to give to a widow Hey You said you’d be waiting home for me Now I don’t know where you are And I can’t tell the distance from the echoes (I’ve got) Words of love (I’ve got) Words of peace And when she reads these words They will be her release You Brace for the future you don’t know Long ago you told your friends you’d never change I Carry these remains Rushing forward on a train I can’t say that they’ll ever reach their destination Now I’m leaving once again Papers have been sent Time has been spent (I’ve got) Words of love (I’ve got) Words of peace And when she reads these words They will be her release

"Tonight I’m leaving this big city and all its bullsh*t, Where my friends have to clear their names And the snow has to clear itself. I want to drive all night with some music loud, Fly away on a song, Hold you in my arms and get to a place Where nothing goes wrong. There's magic in this crazy world that's sometimes hard to see And there's times I drift away in an Austin dream." "I got resolutions to get myself out of this dirty town B/c the snow is all turnin’ black while all the trains melt down. I don’t want you wondering just how long it’s been Since it’s been you Taking that lakefront road, taking every risk Just to feel something new There’s magic in this mad mad mad world you see Drifting away in an Austin dream." "I think they like us there because we’re from far away." "That’s why we’re always welcome back And why we really shouldn’t stay." "We got a three-day drive through desert nights And a couple thousand songs, But we’re gonna write one more and get one more night Where nothing goes wrong." "There’s magic in this crazy world you just need to believe That you can live and breathe and die inside a dream. You see I found myself in Austin that new years eve, And now I find myself in Austin almost every time I dream."

I want to take a zipline Through my mind (But) no one speaks our language Down here Where’s that number? I need to call The Doctor We wanna get draddled And set fire to the beach But the dolls are at the border And the pilot’s getting screened I need to call The Doctor Where’s that number? There are shooting stars In Orion’s Belt Swinging high from a chandelier It would be such a waste To be out in space Without a doctor What’s that number? We need a zipline Baby you are so fine Caressing my mind You see forever You see through me But there’s no contradiction Between what I’m feeling And what I’m seeing In your eyes There are shooting stars In Orion’s Belt Swinging high from a chandelier It would be such a waste To be out in space Without a doctor Without your number w/out a zipline w/out your number w/out a zipline

I was thinkin wishful thinkin of a good luck charm of a world turned my way I’m just waitin on that windfall from the secrets of the world I know I’m just waitin on that wind to fall I close my eyes drivin’ dusty roads sending clouds into a clear big sky with every mile another dream distant sunlit scenery every mile another dream these are your darkest days cubicle post-it haze feeling for a ledge for a leap of faith I’m just waitin on that windfall from the secrets of the world I know I’m just waitin on that wind to fall

Back in Brooklyn under sleeping trees And all these thoughts of Mexico All my dreams they have more meaning here Cause I’m all alone With my sleeping trees We flew into the stars In you I found faith to let go And in some other time and space We’re never apart We wake up stars I was thinking about how we say good bye Too few words to cover the truth You know I will always get lost in your eyes I want you to know That I miss you I want you to know I know one day you’ll hear this song Drawing lines that feel the same We’ll still be riding an endless wave To a little surfing town, my Sayulita I was thinking about how we say good bye Too few words to cover the truth You know I will always get lost in your eyes I want you to know That I’ll always love you I want you to know Everything that’s true everything that's true is you everything that's true is inside you

just a dj on a downtown A sleepin it off to get up 1/2 awake for a dead-end gig in the Rockaways he sees this girl transfer from the D dreams in her head, kid asleep on the seat she’s always on his train and always in the sky she can’t know the sky she can’t see the sky she can’t have the sky because she’s always in the sky he pictures her as Grace spinning records into the empty space over the ocean off the Rockaways her beauty is her pain the moon’s behind clouds; the sun don’t play she just loses days always in the sky she can’t know the sky she can’t see the sky 'cos she’s always in the sky she can’t dream the sky she can’t live the sky she’s always in the sky we’ve been (radiated)^2 and now we radiate always in the sky always in the sky always in the sky so perfect it makes you high always in the sky always in the sky so perfect you never want to say good-bye
