Track Name: New Year's Day
Partied like it was 1979
Or ‘85
Because it was
And it felt like
Everything was alright

But I knew
We knew
This couldn’t last
Too much too fast
That night
I held you tight

New Year’s Day
Forgive our mistakes
We can wipe away
Everything that went wrong

New Year’s Day
Start with a clean slate
They say
Shining futures

So I left our room
That underground concrete tomb
Picked my way through the debris
Around me

I think I forgot something
I remember a light so blinding
I can’t see a thing
I can’t see you

New Year’s Day
Throw it all away
Is gone for good

New Year’s Day
We will find our way
Have no fear
New Year’s Day
Is here
Track Name: Bad Science
I’ve done the math a hundred times
But these numbers won’t lie
Though the variables and values change
The results remain the same

The bodies don’t attract
The elements won’t react

It’s all bad science now
My love
It’s just bad
Bad science now
Chemistry gone wrong

The instruments aren’t making sense
Their readings are misleading
Starting to doubt I can figure out
What went wrong between us

The formulas return the wrong amounts
Though my methods are all sound

It’s all bad science now
My love
It’s just bad
Bad science now
Energy all gone
Track Name: Nowhereland
