Track Name: The Moon Is Going To Crash Into The Earth
The end of the world is at hand
Cast your eyes upward, you must understand
Slowly advancing, double its girth
The moon is going to crash into the earth

Into the earth, into the earth, into the earth
The moon is going to crash into the earth

I'm finding it hard to believe
Like watching a ball drop on a strange New Year's Eve
But gone is the merriment, silent the mirth
The moon is going to crash into the earth

Into the earth, into the earth, into the earth
The moon is going to crash into the earth

If you got a prayer to say, you best say it soon
The earth is going to crash into the moon

An old woman smiles up at the sky
Thinking of days of injustice gone by
And she waits for a new and a glorious birth
The moon is going to crash into the earth

Into the earth, into the earth, into the earth
The moon is going to crash into the earth

If you got a prayer to say, you best say it soon
The earth is going to crash into the moon

The hours that make up your life
More time at the office, less with your wife
Tell me what do you value, and what is it worth
The moon is going to crash into the earth

Into the earth, into the earth, into the earth
The moon is going to crash into the earth

The moon is going to crash into the earth
Track Name: Cry of Freedom
Assist me satellite
Tonight your light to my second story flight
Will be my alibi
The only eyes to witness this, oh this, my mind

The orange light shifts
Golden memories do drift
To our innocence
Twas just a myth besides

Assist me satellite
Give these thoughts life
In the endlessness of sky

But the morning's coming soon
From the east into this room
With the silence dawning too
I am saving my voice for my cry of freedom, I am
I am saving my voice for my cry of freedom, I am

I'm streaming fast tonight, can't stop this flow
A summer's song is on the rise
Catching my breathy sigh in a jar
For you to take and analyze

When you decide to give me back my mind
Wake me up so I can walk into the night
And see my satellite
My alibi, never dear do leave my side

But the morning's coming soon
From the east into this room
With the silence dawning too
I am saving my voice for my cry of freedom, I am
I am saving my voice for my cry of freedom, I am
Track Name: Full of Stars
My god is full of stars
Thundering in passing railroad cars
In everything that falls apart
In everywhere that you are

I'll take what's meant for me
What is yours and all between
I'll set it all a-light
I don't mind...if you don't mind

A simple, sweet farewell
A secret I promised I won't tell
Don't let it go to waste
I won't it go to waste

My god is full of stars
Thundering in passing railroad cars
In everything that falls apart
In everywhere that you are
Track Name: So Much Sleep
We've been down this
our time is getting short
and there's not much left to say

So I'll carry on my way
and the last ones left
are left to pray

I never knew
I never knew you
To be unkind this way
but that's a choice to make
and, I know you'll miss me down the road someday.

and, I know you'll miss me down the road someday.
Track Name: Parting Song
For now, I'll borrow my fathers clothes
To sit in the church pews my mother knows
And practice sing to the ghosts
The loneliest songs for the lost and alone
Here to know why
So don't you come looking for comfort in me
You buttoned your coat and said your goodbyes
So don't you come looking for comfort in me.

And I believe in the goodness of things
Though tomorrow you may cast me away
And we'll all search though the shadows left here
To understand why they all disappear
As sure as their lain
So don't you come looking for comfort in me
You buttoned your coat and said your goodbyes
So don't you come looking for comfort in me.

So now I'll bury my thoughts of you
As all things in their season do change
And I hope that you do the same
Cause now that your gone girl
I'm headed out west
So say your goodbyes,
And don't you come looking for comfort in me
You buttoned your coat and said your goodbyes
So don't you come looking for comfort in me.
