The Queen of America (free) 03:36
The Queen of America ================= Well they made up a figure And they called it you And they bought you a market For the things you do And you drop like a name Right into the scene You're the Queen of America But what does that mean? Well they made you a promise And they kept it too And you're sure you earned it Cause you always knew But I pulled your file And a funny thing You're the Queen of America But who's your King? Well they made up a figure And they called it you And they brought you to market With the things you do And you drop like a name Right into the scene You're the Queen of America But what does that mean?
2.
The Hum of Zeppelins, 2031 AD ====================== A world of waiting, lost in the glare Thousands of airships take to the air Hoping so desperate that she would be there In the hum And when she saw me, she ran to my arms We stood alone in the empty airlift loft Behind us the shimmer of each flight taking off And the hum And oh, I miss the sorrow Oh I miss the sorrow The words they were waiting, but never came right Delicate meanings absorbed by the night Things we had wished that just couldn't align To the hum And when she saw me, she ran to my arms We stood alone in the empty airlift loft Behind us the shimmer of each flight taking off And the hum And oh, I miss the sorrow [We would be there in the hum]

Poolboy (free) 02:36
Poolboy ====== If I saw you today, Would it only be the same mess, different day? And I am still just in the way. And it always is the same mess, different day.

Little White Book (free) 01:49
Little White Book ============== Don't care about the human race I just want to find myself a place In your little white book.
5.
Like a Great Big Meteor ================= If all we have is now, then what did we have then as she sat across me nervously in what used to be a den? Back then it was 90 days, And then it was 90 weeks, And slowly we saw It was not coming back It was all just gone for good. I'd like to remember this all as it was The burble and the buzz of surburban machines -- Lawnmowers on a Saturday twilight, With the sky soft darkening. And I'd like to say The pain makes it real: but it can't make you feel, it just makes you survive -- I'd like to tell you that we're all alive, But we're not alive. And it's a great big meteor And it's a great big sun And it's the last day calling And it's the last day done. And it's a great big meteor And it's a great big sun And it's the last day calling And it's the last day done. And it's a great big meteor And it's a great big sun It's like the last day falling It's like the last day done. It's like a great big meteor It's like a dying sun It's like the last day falling It's like the last day done. It's like a great big meteor It's like a dying sun It's like the last day falling It's like the last day done.
