Track Name: Polyester Day
I'll meet you in the polyester day
Would you care to step away into the past?
In the mist, my autumn dreams are stained with you
Like windows in cathedrals
'Til you came and broke the glass

Something in the way you love is strange
The crow calls overhead to say the season's truly changed,
and every day feels like a masquerade

Every day is polyester fake without your touch,
and what I crave is something deeper than your cold December fever

I need you when my moment looks the bleakest
When my will is at its weakest
I believe your toothless lies
I'll meet you when the centers of our stars collide,
and cast a supernova through the fabric of the night

Something in the way you love has changed
Yes, you've become a poison left to course within my veins,
and every day feels like a masquerade

Every day is polyester fake without your touch,
and what I crave is something deeper than your cold December fever

Oh, what is it for?
I'm just a shadow of myself, nothing more
Oh, what have you done
with all your love?
What have you done?

Every day is polyester fake without your touch,
and what I crave is something deeper than your cold December fever
Every day.
What I crave is something deeper than your cold December fever.
Track Name: Pine Overcoats
Face to the ground,
blanket of clouds,
and a monochrome army of friends.
I'll fake my way out of this,
I'm only playing pretend.

But you play for keeps,
now I need my release.
Tore through the ice and found tacks underneath.
You can't deceive what is already clear,
it's a sin.

Wrap me up tight in my pine overcoat,
and we'll dance our way out to the end.
Tumbling over like drunken toy soldiers,
I'll play the part of the sergeant who swears he would
sacrifice everything, anything, nothing at all.

Stagger stage right,
as vermilion lights exit and nod off to bed.
It's always been dark in my head,
all the candlelight's dead.

You held the match, but burned it too fast,
now the pilot light's filling my head full of gas.
Surely, you know,
even iron corrodes
in the end.

Dress me up nice in my pine overcoat,
and we'll dance our way out to the end.
Tumbling over like drunken toy soldiers,
I'll play the part of the sergeant who swears he would
sacrifice everything, anything, nothing at all.

Nothing at all,
so don't waste your time.
I was already lost before you.
The storm's in my mind,
and it rains all the time,
and the sun don't shine.
You look so divine when you wear your
pine overcoat
too.

Wrap me up tight in my pine overcoat,
and we'll dance our way out to the end.
Making up plans that we'll never undo,
and I'll be the fool who would think they'd come true.
I would sacrifice everything, anything,
something I hold very dear to the end.
But this isn't real, and we're only playing pretend.
This isn't real,
and we're only playing pretend.
