Track Name: Avery
AVERY
(Emma Bortolon-Vettor/Sara Bortolon-Vettor)

When I let down all my friends
I didn't mean to cross the line with my life but I did.
It was shock, a hit to my ego
I tripped, I didn't mean to threaten a life but I did.
There's no use in feeling down.
Only fools could feel this down
And I'm one of them now.

But when this scream stops, will it now? Didn't you hear that this voice calling out is too loud?
Yours was a doubt, a teetering seesaw
I hope to eat discomfort, never walking on shells.
There's no use in feeling down.
Only fools could feel this down
And I'm one of them now.
Track Name: Fire in the Back Room
FIRE IN THE BACK ROOM
(Liam Magahay/Mark Ferrari/Sara Bortolon-Vettor)

I know the time is now to fill this haunted room
with every colour that our souls allow.
And though the flame is near you’re better off this way
a minor burn is never worth the fear.
So let the ritual commence
Let’s lose our bodies in a trance of present wonder
And let the well that is your mind, attain some level of divine
come flooding, flooding, flooding.
No time for your doubts to loom.
Give in before it’s too soon.
And we are one with every beat, our souls amalgamate in heat
of present wonder.
And after all is felt and free, you’ll see a world you’ve never seen
come flooding, flooding, flooding.
No time for your doubts to loom.
Give in before it’s too soon.
Fire in the back room!
Track Name: Edith
EDITH
(Sara Bortolon-Vettor)

In my mind, it’s just forever
In our moments, we’ll live together
When we can.
Put blame on those who wander
Home after you.
Pace yourself, too much too soon,
To love you anyway.

Edith! Edith!
Edith! Edith!

Fucking around again, why do I feel like the room is crowded?
Yet there’s no one here.
Acoustic space is all I am
Oh you and I are alike.
There’s no place like this space.
She’s going to love you anyway.

Is there a point to this conversation or are you just talking for the sake of talking?

Edith! Edith!
Edith! Edith!
Track Name: Toadally, Man
TOADALLY, MAN
(Mark Ferrari)

I was told,
"I told you so!"
By a very, very, toady little man.
He was atrociously curious
In a totally, toady, non-commital way.
But he was talking about nothing
Always repeating,
the last hour of the conversation.
The last hour of the conversation.
He was
always repeating
always repeating (but escalating)
always repeating (but escalating)
'till it broke!
And the whole thing it went up in smoke.
I was hoping for an elaborate joke
but sometimes people keep talking
For no good reason other than they don't know don't know don't know how to stop!
Track Name: Our Lives Lie
OUR LIVES LIE
(Emma Bortolon-Vettor/Mark Ferrari)

I'm already gone, just haven't said goodbye
I've been awoken to a greater mind
In the sunset of our time.
You don't have to say don't have to stay
To be honest, I've had my bags packed for days.
I won't be your tie that binds

When inevitably you need a friend, don't expect a lending hand.
'Cause I can't be your comfortable
No I won't be your comfortable.

Grow, and I will grow too.
Where to begin, I'm afraid to lose my times with you.
Memories will only get you through
Our lives lie, in something new.

And it's true, what you said:
"I'd rather live apart than together and dead..."
I just didn't have the words.
But now, now we know.
How many years with not much to show.
Are we living for the birds?

When inevitably you need a friend, don't expect a lending hand.
'Cause I can't be your comfortable
No I won't be your comfortable.

Grow, and I will grow too.
Where to begin, I'm afraid to lose my times with you.
Memories will only get you through
Our lives lie, in something new.

So this is good riddance,
Never quite goodbye,
Decisions for rebirth and dreaming to survive.
I'll save the last dance for you.
Track Name: Promise Me
PROMISE ME
(Sara Bortolon-Vettor/Mark Ferrari)

Here already, just for now.
There’s no sign of life when you’re living in the ground.
It’s alright, we’ll go outside.
Why should I be the one to take away your fun?
We’re just along for the ride.
I pay no mind
I have no mind.
I’m not saying, I’m not saying
I’m not saying something serious.
Just got a big infatuation with a
Feeling that’s bound to bust.

Honestly, my friend
You’re running on paper thin floors.
Oh what happened to you?
Aimlessly pleading to no one at all.
Nothing at all.

Please forgive me, I’m not well
In the head, she said
Why are you up so late?
I feel better than I did yesterday.

Honestly, my friend
You’re running on paper thin floors.
Oh what happened to you?
Aimlessly pleading to no one at all.
Nothing at all.
Track Name: I Was Not Awake
I WAS NOT AWAKE
(Sara Bortolon-Vettor)

Back to the start.
Back to the way things were a year ago.
It was just a dream again
I swear. I was not aware.

I was not awake!

Being reckless, senseless
There’s no divide.
I can’t confide in you
Unless you’re bleeding at the teeth.
I was not awake!
Oh how could you,
Oh how did you know?
That I was mad.
What has become of of us my friend?
Track Name: Honest Man
HONEST MAN
(Mark Ferrari)

You gotta believe we’re all someone

I watched an honest man
he blew off his gun and cut of his hand.
And I watched an honest man
he blew off his gun and cut of his hand

I was walking alone out the nearest station
And feeling so green about interaction.
Listen to the voices and the gay noises
And they gave all the satisfaction.

I was an honest man
‘Till I blew off my gun and cut of my hand.
And I was an honest man
‘Till I blew off my gun and cut off my hand

Wanna believe?
We’re all someone.
Track Name: Forgive Me
FORGIVE ME
(Sara Bortolon-Vettor)

Mistake.
I don’t want to lie awake with you.
I don’t want to lie next to you.
What a big mistake.
Could you turn the other way?

Give or take
Situation autocracy.
Leaps and bounds away from me
What a big mistake.
An imbalance, out of state.

Forgive me
I wish you well
Be that as it may,
Well I hope you’re doing...well.
Forgive me
I wish you well
Be that as it may,
Our conversation is quite swell.

No change.
Back into remission.
A faith, a fight against grievance
Tumultuous bate.
She’s an orb out of space.

Forgive me
I wish you well
Be that as it may,
Well I hope you’re doing...well.
Forgive me
I wish you well
Be that as it may,
Our conversation is quite swell.
Track Name: Snow Falls
SNOW FALLS
(Sara Bortolon-Vettor)

First snow falls
Feel the flakes melt in your open palms
Feel the flakes melt in your open palms
Is this real?
Did you walk away from it all?
Why did you walk away from it all?

Off with the night, we’ll sit by candle light
It’s the truth.
I won’t waste anymore time when I’m with you.

What’s the point of living life the way you’re told to?
Tossing away everything you hold true?
First snow falls
I want to be near but I can’t sleep here.
When I’m with you it’s so surreal.

Off with the night, we’ll sit by candle light
It’s the truth.
I won’t waste anymore time when I’m with you.

Gracious hands won’t do you any good
When you’re blue
Oh blue
Toss out the future,
Could it get any bleaker?
What have you become?
Oh become
Track Name: Save Us!
SAVE US!
(Mark Ferrari)

It’s so hard to find
Sunshine in the city boy.
Well I know, it’s hard to find.
It’s so hard
(So hard!)
To find
(To find!)
Sunshine in the city girl.
Well I know, it’s hard to find.

When it’s February
and your boots are soaked through
You’re wrapped so tight
Your mom don’t recognize you
Even if you woke up in time for noon
Mr. Blue Sky’s gone away ‘til June!

And so it’s hard
Come winter time
To find the sun
Without going blind.
Well trust me, it’s hard to find.

So from time to time if I may get high
It’s only because I believe in lies
And I make that Sunshine in my mind.

Oh it’s so hard to find
Sunshine in the city boy
Well I know, it’s hard to find.
It’s so hard to find
Sunshine in the city girl
Well I know it’s hard to find.
Daylight savings
Save us!
