Sunrise Highway

take me back, to the end of the island
early ’94 in the dead of winter
before the hedge funds bought all the sand
before the century came to an end

are you waiting for me
standing on that point of land
where the atlantic meets the sound and
everything’s going according to plan

and we’re at the head of a table in a house full of windows
at the end of an island that only the sunrise knows

the northern lights from providence
bleed into the milky way
and the whole wide world
stays a safe distance away

we’ll meet under the lighthouse
embrace on top of the bluff
the light will erase the time between us
once again we’ll be the ones

at the head of a table in a house full of windows
at the end of an island that only the sunrise knows

so i’m in a 20 year old car
with a dream baby dream i drive
ever eastward ever eastward ever eastward
into the sunrise

The Next Big Thing

We traveled the world together in the same dime store shoes
We had our ups and our downs but we never spoke of the blues
Then the sun started shining on you
And the rain held off until you were through
Running around leaving this life behind

The next thing we knew, you were the next big thing

You said success wouldn’t change you, it’d only open the door
For you to escape the ones who never wanted more
So you left for the city in spring
By winter you were crowned king
And we faded away behind all your new memories

The next thing we knew, you were the next big thing

Now you’re up with the stars
And we got all the time in the world
Sitting down here watching it from afar

Home is a place you can never go back when you change your point of view
And home is a place you always invent when the moment is right to be new
We get the feeling you’re gone
Lost to the great beyond
Farewell my friend
We’ll remember you

The next thing we knew, you were the next big thing

save the world (from ourselves)

sirens out my window
echo down the alleyway
explosions and fragmentation waves
made the city shift and shake

we saw it loud
we heard it clear
‘cos no one lives in isolation here

now we have to save the world again
so zero out time
because now is then
baby, take a look around you
save your requiems
we’re gonna have to save the world from ourselves again…

driverless cars running the lights
everywhere we are tonite

think it over
think it through
in this moment, who are you?
