"Building a Better City by Design" as written by Daniel Lowder, Thomas J Minich, Jose Daniel Romero and Mark Daniel Rose....
My timing was perfect (timing was perfect)

I've been asleep for only hours,
It feels like it's for years
Who are these people?
Where did they come from?
How did I get here?

I dreamt of something beautiful.
We all need something beautiful.
I know something beautiful.
But she is not here. Not here
No, no.
Not here.
No, no.
Stand back.

Yeah, my timing was perfect.
My timing was perfect.
My timing was

I've been asleep, you knocked me out.
Why won't you let me in?
Who are your new friends?
Where did they come from?
How did you get here?

I dreamt of something beautiful.
We all need something beautiful.
I know something beautiful.
But she is not here. Not here
No, no.
Not here.
No, no.
Stand back.

Yeah, my timing was perfect.
My timing was perfect.
My timing was

    General Comment(lyrics look great, thanks stray)
    this song sounds very autobiographical....
    'i knew a who was great... but we went on tour and i didn't see you for awhile. i came back to town, looked you up and now its all wrong. you're different, your crowd's different... and it's just my luck'

    def the most catchy and melodic song on the album... tho lyrical depth is missing. that's fine..still love The 'Field!

    My timing was perfect (timing was perfect)

    I've been asleep for only hours,
    It feels like it's four years
    Who are these people?
    Where did they come from?
    How did I get here?

    I dreamt up something beautiful.
    We all need something beautiful.
    I know something beautiful.
    but she is not here. Not here
    No, no.
    Not here.
    No, no.
    Step back.

    Yeah, my timing was perfect.
    My timing was perfect.
    My timing was...

    I've been asleep, you knocked me out.
    Why won't you let me in?
    Who are your new friends?
    Where did they come from?
    How did you get here?
