Bottom half of a double bill Six months not a single thrill Where are you? What are you? Can’t stand a sunny day No crosswalks anyway Where are you now? When are you? I’m gunning for Orion Wasting time, breaking time tonight Meet me on Orion All right! No light from a dying star That look won’t get you far How are you? Why are you? I’ve seen your type before You probably shouldn’t come around here anymore What are you now? When are you? Gunning for Orion Wasting time, breaking time tonight Meet me on Orion All right!

Red summer came and we went We couldn't wait to lock ourselves indoors Take shelter As long as you can prove it's yours I've got my great decline. Lost and found Stand your ground We wait for letters We learn they lost them out at sea Who's breathing? Is there no one left for me? I've got my grand design. Lost and found Stand your ground How can I sit here with those lies? Oh how can I, when you walked away from those lives? And you walked away from the things you said Ghost in your eyes Lost and found Stand your ground

108's her lucky number 108 has done some travelling 108 nights in a weekend 108 could mean, well, almost anything If you wanna spend the night Can I just say that works out fine? I don't remember what I said I don't remember much at all, but If I want more I know that I'll circle the earth forever A model rocket on a string If I want more I'm outta luck Controlled descent: the coward's way back home I read the tenets on the breakroom wall I memorized them just to disregard them all I clicked through pages of the ULA I read 'em all and signed on anyway If you wanna spend the night Can I just say that works out fine? I'd rather not be cast aside as just another satellite, but If I want more I know that I'll circle the earth forever A model rocket on a string If I want more I'm outta luck Controlled descent: the coward's way back home 108's her lucky number 108 has done some travelling 108 nights in a weekend 108 said that her name is Madeleine If you wanna spend the night Can I just say that works out fine? I'd rather not be cast aside as just another satellite, but If I want more I know that I'll circle the earth forever A model rocket on a string If I want more I'm outta luck But I can't wait to see her Wednesday night

Saw it arching through the night A briefly lit November sky Followed silent where it fell To bid my friend one last farewell I’ll walk alone They’ll never know You wait and see what becomes of me This body, my shell Fading neurons, fireflies Can’t wipe the tears from thirty eyes Another friend I couldn’t save Lying in this cratered astral grave I’ll walk alone They’ll never know You wait and see what becomes of me This body, my shell
