Track Name: Noticeably Focused
Back when we'd just started out
Over unfamiliar ground
Pulling partners from the sightlines of the crowd
You got noticeably focused
When I showed and when I spoke
So I stayed on

And hasn't it all been just a dream?
Tapioca sugarcream
Take a bow, 'cause it's the best I've ever seen
As you got noticeably focused
When I said that I smelled smoke and
You got noticeably focused
When I showed you what you broke
But I stayed on

Over and through this all again
Turn off the lights and be my friend
And dream us back to where you thought that we had been
As you got noticeably focused
When I said that I was hopeless
You got noticeably focused
When I showed you that our time was up

And you know that where we are
Shouldn't be so very far

'Cause I'm the devil that you know
And not some high school Romeo
We took this ride about as far as it could go
But you got noticeably focused
When I said that I smelled smoke and
You got noticeably focused
When I showed you that our time was up
Track Name: Seasonal Hire
Call on me to put out the fire
A seasonal hire's all I've ever been
I'll just let you down again
You tell me that you think me untrue
In all that I do
Got what you're looking for
But I'm already out the door

You've got a problem, and I've got the time
And you've got a way of keeping people on the line
I tear at my headset until I'm hung over and over and over again but now

Fill me with red wine and carry me home
Put on a phonograph and disconnect the phone
It's all that we're good at, I know that you don't want to go but you know what you know so don't

Call on me to put out the fire
A seasonal hire's all I've ever been
I'll just let you down again
You tell me that you think me untrue
In all that I do
Got what you're looking for
But I'm already out the door

Somewhere between all the signals you send
I fall out of favor as I'm falling into bed
I stare at the walls as you're calling it off and it's on and it's off and it's on again
Track Name: Tuesday Morning
Under where you go through the motions and the zones
I step outside to put my face back on me
Lost without a breath, Cicero frozen in death
Come back down and it’s my Tuesday morning

Reach that city sound and get it down, get it my way
I know you won’t let it get on by me
Feed that city’s soul, it’s beautiful, I get in my way
Come back baby, baby come back

Tried to let it go, put my focus on the show
I needed more than you could ever find me
‘Cause once you’ve had enough, you don’t fall back out that much
Come back down and put my weight back on me

Reach that city sound and get it down, get it my way
I know you won’t let it get on by me
Feed that city’s soul, it’s beautiful, I get in my way
Come back baby, baby come back

And I followed you around, to the other side of town
Should have known that it was foolish of me
‘Til I walked back through that door, could have been the ocean floor
Set our course and I’ll just make you love me

Reach that city sound and get it down, get it my way
I know you won’t let it get on by me
Feed that city’s soul, it’s beautiful, I get in my way
Come back baby, baby come back
Track Name: Go Home
Whatever happened
To positive action?
Used to be we’d up and go
Turn this whole town out, but now we stay at home

So hey, why don’t we go
Decide on a sequel?
You could be my better half
And we could pull ourselves back from the past

And the steady-state waves of inherited faith
Well, they crackle into static as they’re hitting the tape
And if this is not a game then it’s getting too late to go home
But instead of getting caught when they turn up the lights
On the very last call of a Saturday night
I can take a final longshot at getting it right
So go home, go home without me

Somebody told me
There was a land where
Every man was cut in two
And people’d just as soon throw down as look at you

With science and progress
Excited and thoughtless
How much longer can I feed
The daemons of my own apostasy?

And the steady-state waves of inherited faith
Well, they crackle into static as they’re hitting the tape
And if this is not a game then it’s getting too late to go home
But instead of getting caught when they turn up the lights
On the very last call of a Saturday night
I can take a final longshot at getting it right
So go home, go home without me

And the steady-state waves of inherited faith
Well, they crackle into static as they’re hitting the tape
And if this is not a game then it’s getting too late to go home
But instead of getting caught when they turn up the lights
On the very last call of a Saturday night
I can take a final longshot at getting it right
So go home, go home without me now

Go home without me now
