Track Name: Cigarette Burns
Our history is coded deep into the bone
every fall and fracture, every inch we've grown
caught in a cycle we can never read
it's awful and familiar, every word and deed

Chorus:
If I hold my hand to the fire
Hold it til it burns
ever time I pray for lessons learned
the time I worry
about what I might become
is when I turn away, when I go numb

In my hand I hold a cigarette, watching as it burns to ash
seems like it burned hotter some time in the past
watching smoke drift away, I can never doubt
when the fuel is gone, every fire burns out

Chorus

Some burn slow and smolder, some burn out in a rage
Some glow a distant beacon, an explosion, fireworks display
a spark in the corner lighting up the room
in the end the ashes fall when everything's consumed

Chorus, and out.
Track Name: TV Hill
As you lie in your bed
Satellites swing overhead
Carrier signal modulates
Close your eyes and wait

Chorus:
As the sun goes down over TV Hill
All your troubles fade to black
Frequency slow test pattern glow
Fidelity, telemetry your memory of so-called fact

Open your eyes in your bed
Static floods through your head
Round the clock the updates flow
Bulletins fall like gentle snow

Chorus

Wires hum, lights go dim
Justice served, everyone wins
Afternoon chills you to the bone
It's time to turn and go back home

Chorus

Everything is delivered, everything you desire
Everything is provided, guided by wire

Chorus

As you lie in your bed
Satellites swing overhead
Carrier signal modulates
Close your eyes and wait
