Sylvaleay This album is amazing. The lyrics are so smart and the music compliments each song perfectly. Once I heard just a couple of seconds of each track, I was hooked. If you want to hear really wonderful music that will make your heart happy, listen to this album!!!!! When my husband and I listened to the tracks together, the music took us away to another time and place. Did I mention we love this album?????? Favorite track: Sorrow.

Track Name: My Sad 71
Our neon lights are bleeding out
They leave behind new words hung in the night skyline
Flickering cues for our lies

The troubadours will strut their hour
In darkened halls their words belong to kid vampires
And not the man with the mic  

And we promise to return
Like nothing in the world could tear us apart
Or could keep us whole

The story ends
Derailing
Cannot sustain it
No one has said your name in so long

We lied about desire
There's more to be deciphered in the day's headlines
When they’re held up to the light

Such a permanent disaster
From there to the hereafter we retrace old lines
Fuck up the same way each time

Thought I saw you in the crowd
Your expression in a thousand faces

The story ends
Derailing
Cannot sustain it
No one has said your name in so long

My Sad 71
Track Name: Heaven
Carry the dust upon your shoulders
You're the Atlas of the fall
Drinking alone
Only to find somebody there to take you home

In the dark uptown
Your mother's sleeping pills are kicking in by now
When the sun comes up
It's not the sequel
We’re all here for the rerun

It’s the end of school
And the end of rules
Say goodbye to the fools
And so long to the thieves
It's a golden summer
From the trees to the gutters
But that's all for the birds
And there's none for the bees

In ideal homes
Bury your heart beside their blind suburban bones
So it goes
The soundtrack of our lives
This sad familiar song
And we all sing along
Cast away care
Everyday is one more expired tomorrow

Second wave inbound
A million speaking
No one listening at all
It could all burn down
Call the commissioner
The minister
And sing a campfire song

In Heaven
Yeah we’ve all gone to Heaven
Oh Heaven
Yeah we’ve all gone to Heaven

In our own way we hold our heads up
Cast and the crew
The director
The viewers
The sky
The stars
The shopping malls
The cars
The ground beneath our feet

Heaven
Yeah we’ve all gone to heaven
Oh Heaven
Yeah we’ve all gone to heaven
Track Name: Sorrow
Watching heaven from underground
And when the lights come up we'll see God
Flood the hollows between the stars
Until we know what their secrets are

And we live in sorrow
Don't we believe?
We beg and we borrow
Our dreams count for something

Conversations and dialogue
The minds of men are never made up
Ancient wisdom and modern love
Fatal feelings fighting for air and somehow

We live in sorrow
Don't we believe?
We beg and we borrow
Our dreams count for something

We read and write
We're so young we can’t rewind
Our eager eyes
Want the sun and leave us blind

Happy for the rest of our lives
Track Name: 1 2 Love
Time
It's always the right time
It's always the right time

2 Love 1 2 Love
2 Love 1 2 Love

Throwing caps on the fire
You know they’re gonna see what they want to believe
Hear the truth from a liar
So long who's going to be there beholding me?

2 Love 1 2 Love
2 Love 1 2 Love

Hear the clocks in the corridor
Keep time in the eyes if the blissfully blind
Through a cloud of a chemical
It's off with the head of the king you surface

2 Love 1 2 Love
2 Love 1 2 Love
