Track Name: Crashburn
Okay....

So here we are!
Black and blue, skin blistered through yeah...
The five of us, two are lost.
Shock, confusion. Count the cost.
I know this seems so surreal...
Crash, burn, hold tight..
We're coming into land...
Crash, burn, hold tight..

Fade in, fade out,
We're losing consciousness...
Fade in, fade out!
(C'mon' sing it!)

So we've come along way,
just to be caught up in this dismay...
Set sail, set sail, set sail...
Crash, burn, hold tight...
We're coming into land...
Crash, burn, hold tight...

(C'mon' sing it!)
Fade in, fade out,
We're losing consciousness...
Fade in, fade out!

Un-named aircraft flying overhead,
un-named aircraft...
Please rescue us!
Track Name: Wait Wait
A realisation of mortality sets in.
An understanding of the frailty that we're in!
Clinging to the last piece of hope...
Another step or two we wouldn't cope...

Wait, wait, wait now!
Turn back around.
(You never said it's over..)
Stay with us now!
(You never said!)
It's suicide to cover ground...

It's clear to me my words are falling, upon deaf ears.
With all things considered I understand your fears.
So swallow me up oh cruel sand,
This is where I make my last stand.

Wait, wait, wait now!
Turn back around.
(You never said it's over..)
Stay with us now!
(You never said!)
It's suicide to cover ground...

Wait, wait, wait now, turn back around, stay with us now.

I don't know which way to get around,
I don't know who to follow,
If it's you who's runnin' the show.
Lead us into shadow.
You don't know which way to get around.
You don't know which way to go,
It's between you and me now.
Step aside and follow.

It's between you and me now.
Track Name: Operate
Back up!
Give me some space.
The captain's in need, so get outta my face!
Well, did ya stop to think that, you were wrong?!
For once in your life, you're not as strong!

Operate, operate, loosen my tongue,
Celebrate, I retaliate.
you know it wont be long.
(Operate, operate.)
It wont be long...
(Operate, operate.)
...till he's too far gone..

Gun shot! to the chest.
I'm sure you can guess, what happens next.
Victim hits the floor, culprit drops his jaw.
The vision flashing before his eyes, again and again!

Operate, operate, loosen my tongue,
Celebrate, I retaliate.
you know it wont be long.
(Operate, operate.)
It wont be long...

It wont be long, wont be long, wont be long,
till we figure this out.
It wont be long, wont be long, wont be long,
we will wait it out.
Operate, operate. It wont be long!

Operate, operate, loosen my tongue,
Celebrate, I retaliate.
you know it wont be long.
(Operate, operate.)
It wont be long...
Till he's too far gone.
Track Name: Quiet Night for Numbers
Night dies in sun's rise,
The day goes down in our eyes,
We'll mend these broken wings.
You were here, you were there,
And we were hopeful of these little, tiny things.

I am dreaming of a life lost and found.
But there's no leaving this place, this time around.

We are together the sum of our parts.

Go on, walk on.
Go on, walk on.

Remember how your heart felt each and every time.
Remember when you shouted, remember when you cried.
Our memories are the songs that never end,
Some great while some offend.
We couldn't handle it, we couldn't handle it,
the thought that we're on our own...

We are the answers, for all that you seek..

Go on, walk on.
Go on, walk on. Go on!
Track Name: Wrong Side of Sunrise
Scalded by the sun way up high!
The heat in his eyes, formed a strange sight.
Through the clouded thoughts, he seemed to perceive:
A stunning oasis, but he'd been deceived.

I will not be the sun to end your night!
I will watch over you till it is light!

You're standing on the wrong side of sunrise!

When we came to it was sunset.
A separation of light and dark.
Onward marched a thousand pin pricks of light.
A plain thats now vast and stark.

I will not be the sun to end your night!
I will watch over you till it is light!

You're standing on the wrong side of sunrise!

Now we are standing on the wrong side of sunrise!
We are standing on the wrong side of sunrise!

An improbable miracle, teased his mind.
halucinations being most unkind.
To him it was like nothing he had seen before.
But it was just a mirage, nothing less...
Nothing more.
