Track Name: 20th Century Towers
We'll correct collegiate mistakes
A shower of formal ideals completely soused
The heart's on our sleeves
As they drowned we could hear them screaming
"Oh, what a tragic way to see our final days."

I attempt to talk up the town
"The answers are in the arches of the 20th Century towers
And in comfortable cars in motion." And yet it still remains
This incessent refrain:
"You're just like the rest: Your restlessness makes you lazy."

Keeping busy is just wasting time
And I've wasted what little he gave me (all around)
I know the conscious choice was crystal clear
To clear the slate of former years
When I sang softly in your ear and tied these arms around you
Track Name: All Is Full Of Love
You'll be given love
You'll be taken care of
You'll be given love
You have to trust it

Maybe not from the sources
You have poured yours
Maybe not from the directions
You are staring at

Twist your head around
It's all around you
All is full of love
All around you

All is full of love
You just ain't receiving
All is full of love
Your phone is off the hook
All is full of love
Your doors are all shut
All is full of love!

All is full of love, all is full of love
All is full of love, all is full of love
Track Name: Stability
Time for the final bout
Rows of deserted houses
All our stable mates are highway bound
Give us our measly sum
Getting the air inside my lungs is heavenly
We're starting out with nothing but crippling doubt

We'll rest easy (justified)
I've suffered a swift defeat
I'll endure countless repeats
The gift of memory is an awful curse,
With age it just gets much worse,
But I won't mind.
