Track Name: Screens
Make a move to get there, use all your strength
Hold onto something, nothing's ever free
Crunch the figures quickly, add up all of your mistakes
Escape it cheaply, swim through the debit

I keep sleeping inside of my TV
I keep leaving the lights on everything

If you're inclined to resurrect it, hold on
(I keep sleeping inside of my TV)
The chemical's defective, hold on
(I keep leaving the lights on everything)
Live amongst the wreckage, hold on
(I keep sleeping inside of my TV)
I keep leaving the lights on everything

Power on

I keep sleeping inside of my TV
I keep breathing out nothing else but steam
I keep blinking in time with my machines
I keep leaving the lights on everything

I keep telling the time on LCDs
I keep seeing my life through glowing screens
I keep blinking in time with my machines
I keep leaving the lights on everything
Track Name: Fires
I think I'm gonna kill the forest for the trees
You're gonna sink beneath the soot
And say it wasn't me
So I'm gonna build a fire for you, I'm gonna build a fire for you
And it'll burn for you, and it'll burn for you

I think I'm gonna play my hand extra close
And you're gonna sneak a peek
And say you never meant to cheat
So I'm gonna set a fire for you, I'm gonna set a fire for you
And it'll burn for you, and it'll burn for you

Smoke out your home, smoke out your home
Smoke out your home, smoke out your home

And I'll set a fire for you, and I'll set a fire for you
And I'll set a fire for you, and I'll set a fire for you
And it'll burn for you
Track Name: Storms
If you could help me on my way
If you could give me something to say
Cause I couldn't move, I couldn't stay
I couldn't lose, cause I didn't play

Help me on my way
Do you want, do you want to steal thunder?
Do you want, do you want to steal thunder?
I can't begin to say
Do you want, do you want to steal thunder?
Do you want, do you want to steal thunder?

Pipe down, just keep your head down
Just keep an eye out, don't make a sound
Pipe down, just keep your head down
Just keep an eye out, don't make a sound

Cause I couldn't move
I couldn't stay, I couldn't stay

Help me on my way
Do you want, do you want to steal thunder?
Do you want, do you want to steal thunder?
I can't begin to say
Do you want, do you want to steal thunder?
Do you want, do you want to steal thunder?

Cause I couldn't move
I couldn't stay, I couldn't stay

Help me on my way
Do you want, do you want to steal thunder?
Do you want, do you want to steal thunder?
I can't begin to say
Do you want, do you want to steal thunder?
Do you want, do you want to steal thunder?

Help me on my way
Do you want, do you want to steal thunder?
Do you want, do you want to steal thunder?
I can't begin to say
Do you want, do you want to steal thunder?
Do you want to build a fire under
I couldn't stay
Build a fire under
I couldn't move, I couldn't move, I couldn't move
I couldn't stay

If you could help me on my way
Track Name: Uncover
Standing over me, watching as I sleep
Track Name: Wires
I say no to bravado
Didn't really wanna go back and see
Didn't really wanna go back and see

Cause now you're seeing by the light of your own sparks
As they glow in the dark
And you're optimistic about the wires in your hair
They're everywhere

Hey maestro, playfellow
Did you really wanna come and find me?
Did you really wanna come and find me?

Cause now you're seeing by the light of your own sparks
As they glow in the dark
And you're optimistic about the wires in your hair
They're everywhere

Worth my weight in gold
Toss away my bones
Toss away my bones

Worth my weight in gold
Toss away my bones
Toss away my bones

Cause now you're seeing by the light of your own sparks
As they glow in the dark
And you're optimistic about the wires in your hair
They're everywhere

The concerto crescendoed
And I could hear all the lights inside me
And I could feel all the lights inside me
Track Name: Embers
We saddled up and did get far
With chemicals they built in factories
Spun our wheels and filled our hearts
Till somebody said that all this couldn't be

Oh I had to find you out
I had to find you out

We settled down and bought a car
And filled it up with bags of groceries
Drove it till it wouldn't start
And left it on the road for all to see

You know I had to find you out
I had to find you out

I had to find you out
I had to find you out

Feeling right at home
Feeling right at home
Whoever we are we own
Whoever we are we own

I had to find you out
I had to find you out
I had to find you out
I had to find you out

We lit the fuse and fanned the sparks
Blew 'em out and turned off our TV
