Track Name: Brutal Exposure
It should be clear
Maybe there's common sense
On loss and life
Laughing to the point of tears
It should be clear
It should be clear

Wishing bright blue eyes
A bubble against time
May have just been light

Your sweetheart has gone blind
A fight with the mind
So frightens me sometimes

And so here we are
A split screen of live streams of short clips of our dreams

It should be clear
Maybe there's common sense
On loss and life
Laughing to the point of tears
It should be clear
It should be clear

The windows are open
Such brutal exposure
My heart exploded
Over and over and over and over
Over and over and over and over
Over and over and over and over
Over and over and over and over

And so here we are
A split screen of live streams of short clips of our dreams

It should be clear

It should be clear
Maybe there's common sense
On loss and life
On loss and life
On loss and life
On loss and life
Track Name: The Professional
The first part was a gloss
A tall window with bars

We should not be alarmed

The hotel maids
Obscured every minute
In circular states

It's the same today

We should not be alarmed
We should not be alarmed

Kissing a peach
Lured into dances
Missing the beat
Each to each
Reflexes and glances
Oh, sweet treasure

The photo was taken
Two weeks before

Oh, sweet treasure
Oh, sweet treasure
Oh, sweet treasure
Oh, sweet treasure
Oh, sweet treasure

Kissing a peach
Lured into dances
Missing the beat

Kissing a peach

The photo was taken
Two weeks before
Taken by a professional

The photo was taken

The photo was taken

Kissing a peach
Lured into dances
Missing the beat
Each to each
Reflexes and glances
Oh, sweet treasure

Oh, sweet treasure
Track Name: Burning City
He brought you past him
Training in action
Red, red creature
Hungry creature

Step away from the burning city

Sparks in your hair
Sparks in your hair

Step away from the closing stairs

Sparks in your hair

He brought you past him
Training in action
Red, red creature
Curse all you want
Curse all...
Curse all you want
Curse all...
Curse all you want

Sparks in your hair

Sparks in your hair

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha……

Track Name: Star Attraction
Into a thousand star attractions
Into a thousand stars

Into a thousand star attractions
Into a thousand stars

Into a thousand star attractions
Into a thousand stars

Into a thousand star attractions
Into a thousand stars

This is the heat
This is the heat
This is the heat
This is the heat

Into a thousand star attractions
Into a thousand stars

Into a thousand star attractions
Into a thousand stars

Into a thousand star attractions
Into a thousand stars

Into a thousand star attractions
Into a thousand stars

This is the heat
The heat from the carnival

(stop tilting stop tilting stop tilting)

Not all the carnival prostitutes
Come from the center of the roads
Not at all, sir
Not at all, sir

It's the cold, cold menthol burn
Of the carnival prostitutes

All lines cut

Into a thousand star attractions
Into a thousand stars

Into a thousand star attractions
Into a thousand stars

All lines cut
Track Name: O Bruxo
This is the largest dear soul

This is the largest dear soul

I admired him
The only person on fire

I admired him
The only person on fire

The bridge between and the devil himself
The bridge between and the devil himself
The bridge between and the devil himself
The bridge between and the devil himself
The bridge between and the devil himself
The bridge between and the devil himself

This is the largest dear soul

This is the largest dear soul

This is the largest dear soul
