Track Name: Syllogismobile
First sight, arc light
Salamander burning bright
First word, unheard
The notion of language too absurd

She's got logic for every occasion
Proposition and refutation
Syllogismobile, take me home

First touch, nonesuch
"September Gurls" never could do so much
First kiss, cache miss
Ignorance never was bliss like this

She's got magic for every occasion
Similarity and contagion
Syllogismobile, take me home

There's an infinite number of idiomatic spaces
Each with its own axiomatic basis
Where she comes from, P does not mean not-not-P
And where she's from is where I want to be

New world, unfurled
A tiny tangle now uncurled
New day, yes way
Redefinition of okay

She's got powers for every occasion
X-ray vision and transmutation
Syllogismobile, take me home
Track Name: Falling Away
If you wait for me to make up my mind
If you wait while the creaking millstones grind so fine
Somewhere inside this thicket of nested parentheses
There's a regular expression that matches my disease

Falling away
Embrace all possibilities
The door is ajar
And the light streams from inside

I live each day as though it were my last
In a hospital bed with the chart sinking fast
As my vital signs head for the floor
I've got twenty-four hours to learn to love you more

Falling away
Accept all infelicities
Come as you are
No one shall be denied

When the deal goes down
When the reaper comes to town
I'll ride to Samarra the whole night through
We both know it's the proper thing to do

In the city of truth in the country of lies
Each half wants to live the way the other half dies
Where there used to be a high impassible wall
There's a chalk line on the pavement, and a sign says "free for all"

Falling away
Embrace all possibilities
The door is ajar
And the light streams from inside

Falling away
Accept all infelicities
Come as you are
No one shall be denied
