Lyrics
1 — Sweet Dreams (featuring Sarah Ciotti)

The silence is broken,
The stars have spoken.
They wish you well,
And hope that you find
Your way through the night.

The time is chosen,
Your eyes are closing,
And sleep will see
The dreams that you dream
On your way through the night.

Before you slumber,
Please, my love, remember
The love that you have
Waiting for you
At the end of the night.

When dawn has broken
And you’ve awoken,
I’ll wish you well
And hope that you’ve found
Your way through the night.

2 — Catching the Ghost

3 — Circle of Friends

4 — Clock Czar

The minutes all seem like hours,
And the hours are seen through a daze.
And if you look at the seconds long enough,
They go on their merry way
Getting lost in the crowded shuffle,
‘Til you find, at the bottom of the deck,
The seconds you thought that you clearly saw
Looking the same as the rest.

These clocks are haunted,
And the seconds come and go as they please.
We try to catch the ghosts,
But every time we look up, they leave.

The months all pass in a week now,
Which can fit in an eight-hour day.
As long as you package them small enough
So they never get in the way.
Just push them aside for a moment —
Out of mind, never out of sight —
Until there’s a chance to enjoy them,
Which is just past the moment that’s right.

These clocks are haunted,
And the seconds come and go as they please.
We try to catch the ghosts,
But every time we look up, they leave.
