Track Name: Mercury in Retrograde
Mercury in Retrograde

It travels round the sun
Six times to our one
What no one else can see
Is plain as day to me

They say its surface is hot as hell
Unwitting servants to its spell
You can't flee Mercury in retrograde

You can't flee Mercury
You can't flee Mercury
You can't flee Mercury

It's ten times worse than a full moon
You're not even safe in your bedroom
Controls more than the rising tides
There's nowhere to hide
There's nowhere to hide

The gods must be against me
My shortwave doesn't work
Lost signal, no connection
Nothing goes right

Imbalance in the system
Rogue planet off its track
All circuits overloaded
Nothing goes right

Damn that planet
Damn that star
Force of disruption from afar
You can't flee Mercury
You can't flee Mercury

Free from Mercury
Free from Mercury

Track Name: Sunshine with the Shade
Sunshine with the Shade

Another long night till the sunrise
Could use some sunshine in the morning
Another mistake in the making
Was this trip worth taking?
Could use some sunshine in the morning...

Where's the silver in this lining?
There's always sunshine with the shade
Where's the dawn to end this darkness?
There's always dry times to end a hard and endless rain

A bit of love for the lonely
She was the wrong girl at the right time
Another mistake in the making
No trip worth taking
Could use some real love in the morning

Someone's starlight is the sunshine
They wish upon our sun in the night time
It's all been uncovered -
there's some of them in us and us in them
It's all been discovered -
there's no need to mourn for anyone

This star is someone's sun
The sun is someone's star
There's shade in every day
And there's sunlight with the shade

There's always sunshine with the shade
There's always sunshine with the shade
There's always sunshine with the shade
There's always sunshine with the shade

Lyrics by William Cote
Track Name: The Longer Now
The Longer Now

You could be break me down
Bit by bit
You won't find the spark at the center of it
You won't find the thinker of my thoughts
You won't find the mover of us all
Of us all

The song plays from the speaker on the shelf
I can't find the band that's inside
These words they come from somewhere else
I can't find the thinker of my thoughts
The thinker of my thoughts

We live in the longer now
We dance in a longer now
We dream in the longer now

X-rays cannot find you
Science will deny you
You are weightless, timeless, spaceless
Skeptics will disprove you

You are - beyond this time and place
You are - the actor on the stage
You are - the mover of this man
You are

I am yesterday's hopes
I am yesterday's thoughts
I am yesterday's dreams
I am yesterday's desires

The longer now
The longer now

You could break me down
Bit by bit
You won't find the spark at the center of it
You won't find the thinker of my thoughts
You won't find the mover of us all
