1. 32.63N 117.14W (1:18)
Instrumental
2. Leaving It Behind (4:27)
Tonight, let go
Let go of everything, inside desire said so
We'll make everything inside alive
Cause I am leaving it behind
Stop feeling dead inside tonight
Cause I'm leaving it behind
Stop feeling satisfied inside

The lies, they know
They know every little thing, inside
But I said no
And I'll make everything inside alright
Cause I am leaving it behind
Stop feeling dead inside tonight
Cause I'm leaving it behind
Stop feeling satisfied inside

Tonight, let go
Let go of everything, inside desire said so
We'll make everything inside alive
Cause I am leaving it behind
Stop feeling dead inside tonight
Cause I'm leaving it behind
Stop feeling satisfied inside
3. Endless Ways (5:49)
Hold on, hold on for delight
And run, and run all night
For you, I looked in endless ways
Stay with me, please believe
I can be your memory

My love will never be the same
And my heart is never going to regret
For you, I looked in endless ways
I looked in endless ways

Hold on, hold on for delight
And run and run all night
For you, I looked in endless ways
I looked in endless ways

There's no way of knowing
We can't be waiting
There's no way of knowing
The dream I'm creating
4. The Optimist (5:37)
Drive at night, slowly
Running in headlights, run away, run away
The great is scape and the slowly
But fall, it's too late to run away, run away

The life we left behind
See, they all are alike
The life we left behind
Dreaming all our life

We ride on hopes
Design our world
Let go of you and I
Run for eyes
Don't look behind
5. San Francisco (4:59)
Instrumental
6. Springfield (5:49)
How did I get here?
I don't belong here

How did I get here?
I don't belong here
7. Ghosts (4:17)
You, saw you!
Yes you, saw you.

Trick of the light,
stop for the night.
Tired and confused!

Saw you, saw you!

Slow down,
slow down.
Leave,
slow down.

Trick of the light,
stop for the night.
Tired and confused,
reminded of you.

Trick of the light,
stop for the night.
Tired and confused!

Saw you...
8. Can't Let Go (5:00)
On and on...

I can't let go,
on and on.
I can't let go!

If you are not there,
I'm coming down,
this road again.

If you I love,
then where are you?
I'm coming down,
down again.

Because I can't let go,
on and on.
I can't let go,
on and on.

If you are not there,
I'm coming down,
this road again.

If you I love,
then where are you?
I'm coming down,
down again.

I'm coming down,
down again.

If you I love,
then where are you?
There's something wrong,
wrong again.

I can't let go,
on and on.
I just can't let go,
on and on.

If you are not there,
I'm coming down,
this road again.

If you I love,
then where are you?
I'm coming down,
down again.

If you I love,
then where are you?
I'm coming down,
this road again.
9. Close Your Eyes (3:39)
Close your eyes,
close your eyes.
Sleep tonight,
sleep tonight.

And dream on,
just dream on,
for the dark roads,
for the dark roads.

For you and I!
Yes, you and I.
Which way to go,
which way to go?

All that you,
need is inside,
and all that you,
need is inside.

And what do you see,
when you turn on the lights?

It's okay, it's okay.
It's just a dream,
go back to sleep.
10. Wildfires (5:40)
Wildfires...

The iron sky,
the iron sky.
Who am I?
Who am I?

The iron sky,
the iron sky.
Who am I?
Who am I?

Wildfires...

The iron sky,
the iron sky.
Who am I?
Who am I?

The iron sky,
the iron sky.
Who am I?
Who am I?

It's too late!
It's too late!
It's too late!

Too late...
11. Back to the Start (11:41)
They don't understand...

And all I need is you,
just all I need is you.

They don't understand,
because they don't talk for me.
There ain't no master plan,
I came in to make peace.

The more we’re made to suffer,
the more we’re made to care.
And all the time in the world,
gonna wish you 'til it hurts.

Because they don't understand

And all I need is you,
but you don't know it's true.
And all I need is you,
you don't know it's true.

It's impossible,
unbelievable.

Do you see it now?
Do you see it now?
And our lives coming,
back to the start.

Back to the start...
