Track Name: The East Bay
I'll know this life for around three more years, after which I guess I'll break my promises. Don't remind me of listless Wednesday afternoons, I'm better off feeling like I'm better off now...

I'm not.

Where are we? (Stand down.) The bay mist fills me with more regret than my swollen heart can handle. Where are we now? (The East Bay fills me with more regret than I can handle.)
Track Name: At This Point in Time
I probably should know better by now than to grasp for hopes and dreams. One day we'll share our touch and our time. And cognac or brandy, sweet as those days. Stand around the corner, waiting for the time. Stand around the corner. Saccharine design. Wish that one day we'll share our touch and our time. And cognac or brandy, sweet as those days. Wish that...
Track Name: Hernia
Every moment blurs by my lachrymose eyes, and I can't cope. It's been so long since I last watched Orion diving into the horizon. I'd have died happy had that oxygen gone stale in my incapable lungs.

And it was blue! Blue like the sky it replaced, and from where so much saltwater spilled in your name.

Brazen, clean-shaven for the occasion. But reminded at best, I'd be left bereft of a warm touch and soft caress.
Track Name: Midnight Coffee
I hadn't the foresight. Imagine that in a year's time the afternoons would become such dull displays. It's reminiscent of any number of childhood faults, but to me, this tainted air smells like love. After two mostly broken years, I still can't get it right.
