Track Name: The Parallel
In the night, I let the strange ones in
And it's alright, cause we don't know any sin
We tread light, on a world that's so thin
All I know, is anything could begin

But all I do, well it doesn't matter
How can I care, when everything could shatter
With all these inconsistencies, I've got a tendency to waver
I can't deny anxieties, but none will ever lend me a favour

We're flying up, I lose my sense in the dust
I'm digging now, trying to break through the crust
We have no choice, everything is a must
There's no side, there's no guide, there's no stride I can trust

In reflections, I think I see someone else
Then I realize, I don't recognize myself
With all these inconsistencies, I've got a tendency to stumble
I pull myself together but, everything is all still a jumble

When you open your eyes I can tell you've been dreaming
A little light in your head, it keeps on gleaming
When you open your eyes I can tell you've been dreaming
Cause when you close your eyes you can't hear the screaming

I give in, to anything that I can
But these feelings, won't take me by the hand
A single doubt, it unravels the land
And nothing goes, anything like we've planned

And all I do, well it doesn't matter
How could I care, when everything will shatter
With all these inconsistencies, I've got a tendency to wallow
And all the more I do means the more I end up feeling hollow
Track Name: Late Night Arcade
Late night, at the arcade
They're closing now, or maybe are they
I see you there, down at the far end
All alone, you could use a friend

I don't wanna mess with you
I just wanna play
I think that you must too
That's why you're at a late night arcade
I just wanna play with you
Do you wanna play
There's nothing I'd rather do
We can play this night away

I hope you don't get the wrong impression
Maybe it would help if I made a confession
I love these games like I would a brother
But playing alone can't beat playing with each other

My pockets are full, I'm loaded with quarters
We can try all the games, in any which order
We'll take the high score I'm willing to bet
But we're gonna end up with blisters and sweat
