Track Name: A Mirror is All
No more pitiful smiles
No more artificial child
Leave your sister alone

No more terror from the sky
Your little god spat in my eye
Guess he's like the folk below

Open your mouth a bit more wide
If I fall you're gonna cry
Then I'm flying on my own

No more fog that comes so near
Poison water looks so clear
Chasing mirrors all along
Track Name: Cosmonaut
My little cosmonaut lies awake with a head full of thoughts
Under a ceiling he doesn't want to see, won't you paint it with me?
Let's paint stars, let's paint galaxies

Because this is nothing new, these are just old blues,
Let's throw out our shoes, I want to buy some space boots.

My little cosmonaut tried to fly away but got stuck,
Too many people in his way.
Now he stays alone in his room with four walls
And a lamp and a broom.

He takes his tea for two, he's got a cup for you,
Let's throw out our shoes, I want to buy some space boots.

My little cosmonaut still dreams with one eye open,
Just to be sure he doesn't lose track of 'reality' again,
He did that before and just look where that got him.
My little cosmonaut sends his hellos and his condolences,
Because he knows, he know, he knows what's out there.

My little cosmonaut, my little dear,
Don't worry, we'll get you back on track,
We'll get you back here.

Because this is nothing new, these are just old blues,
Let's throw out our shoes, I want to buy some space boots.
Track Name: Euphoria
I had another strange dream last night
I met a man on the bridge
Beside the cathedral
And I walked past, he took out his easel
And painted the stars
Painted the stars

So I said paint me please and then I might look pretty
You can lean your canvas against my knees
Just in case you can't see me

So he got it done he put me down on paper
Now you've got my face
You can take me anywhere
You don't need my name

Euphoria
Euphoria
Euphoria
Track Name: Five Stories
I grab a sword, you grab a gun
I can't talk to anyone
But you.

I jump the roof you're dad's awake
I fuck it up, I make mistakes
I do.

I loved a man, I'm sorry Mom
It was nothing it's just I'm wrong
Like you.

Take my brain out stare at it
You know I trust you but you listen in
Got to.

Lazarus give me a while
I'm so afraid, I'm just a child
Not you.
