Track Name: Days without hours
It’s all just a theory
That time passes faster
In these days that I’m with you
(It’s) a fact I’ll never know

Rest your head
Unwind the clocks

Is there a way to tell you
We don’t have infinite time
You can read in the palms
Of these hands of mine

Rest your head
Unwind the clocks
Track Name: Signal to noise
If you listen closely
Put your ear to the ground
If you breathe in slowly
You’ll hear the clock’s counting down

Gravity pulls at time and bends
Every second from now into then

I analyse, but I cannot compute
Your signals turn to noise and are misunderstood

Based on calculations, you should be here with me
Based on calculations, you should know what to do
But can I count on you?

When you look past the details
You’ll find chaos arranged
I’ll turn to quantum mechanics, dear
My mathmatics can’t fail

Gravity pulls at light and bends
Every colour to the rainbows’ end

I analyse, but I cannot compute
Your signals turn to noise and are misunderstood

Based on calculations, you should be here with me
Based on calculations, you should know what to do
But can I count on you?
Track Name: Halfhearted
I should have known when the fuel stopped burning
A shortcircuit, then the light went out
I don't recall being taken apart
But since you're gone I'm missing half a heart

Rebuilt my spine out of wood and wire
Mend my bones with spit and glue
Reclaimed my soul from the hands of the devil
But I'm still missing some pieces of the puzzle

I'm halfhearted
Halfhearted
The valves and framework I've been able to keep
What keeps it ticking has been taken from me
You made me halfhearted
Halfhearted

I realize I need to pull it together
Fuel is leaking and is bound to ignite
I'm a machine with a few loose screws
They used to hold a whole heart, before you

Rebuilt my spine out of wood and wire
Mend my bones with spit and glue
Reclaimed my soul from the hands of the devil
But I'm still missing some pieces of the puzzle

I'm halfhearted
Halfhearted
The valves and framework I've been able to keep
What keeps it ticking has been taken from me
You made me halfhearted
Halfhearted

I keep on crashing while compiling defunct love
Shutdown, reboot and then try it again
Maintain my distance while I scavenge for spare parts
I can't afford another half of my heart

I'm halfhearted
Halfhearted
The valves and framework I've been able to keep
What keeps it ticking has been taken from me
You made me halfhearted
Halfhearted
