Track Name: Year After Month After Day
Make time, inside, to find I tried.
Subside; don't cry; I bide.

Year after year after month after month after day after day.

Solemn ends. Starry hearse. Saviour wine.
Some arise. Stable eyes. Starting gun.

Make time, inside, to find I tried.

Tempus... forget it.

Year after year after month after month after day after day:
aftermath; alter-ego; offer: we go.

Actor desperation, absent contradiction,
after year after year after month after month after day after day.
Endless year, errant month, every day.

Who can't take the time?
Who can't find the time?
Who can't make the time?
I will bide my time.
Who can't take the time?
Who can't find the time?
Who can't make the time?
I'll stay this way
after year after year after month after day after day.

Year after month after day:
aftershock, overstay; effort best, affectless alter-ego,
after day after day.

Starting gun. Stablize. Summarize.
Save your whine. Star rehearse. Sol amends.

Year after year,
aftermath, after math,
after sun, after moon,
after day after day after day after day.
Track Name: Stealing Stills of Orson Welles
Candlelight magic
The bus was two seconds late
Faking a window across the street
There's the sound of slate

Sunlight turning into the moon by
Means of a filter making it blue
Stuntman diving out of the car
Before it goes off the cliff on the first try

Tilt your head just so
Stand exactly there
Shoot the man from behind
Because the other's gone

Speak numbers out instead of words
Guide people moving through the flow
Place feet precisely out of sight
Would it play better if it were in the snow?
People rise from the subway
Redo what's exposed to light
Progress stops when she's opening the wrong door
It's all a set of tricks we use such as shooting it day for night

One-sided building
With uncooperative shot

Are women magic?
The answers differ
The rain that's falling
Outside the window
Turn it down

It's like an old West stagecoach ride
The best we'll do is stay alive
Reject the car because it is very white
Whatever may befall the plan keep on shooting it day for night

Candlelight magic
The bus was two seconds late
Faking a bedroom across the street
Someone claps the slate

She says that she'd never give up a film for a guy
He says he could have worked harder, and maybe he'll still try
Hold out the gun extended so it can be seen against the snow
