DJ Fazbear Noctural is an amazing album by the always amazing The Midnight. Although I prefer the first five tracks to the last two, this was something that I have been meaning to collect. Only one more of the main releases to go :)
PS Nocturnal is my favourite title track followed by Days of Thunder Favorite track: Nocturnal.

Shadows 06:27
The city carved a silhouette On the ocean after dark Over The lonely and the holy  And the red blood beating hearts Up from the dirty black water A shadow void form  Raised itself out of the river And it climbed upon the shore Neon on black top  There gentle rain downtown  The shadow pooling underneath me As it follows on the ground  I kissed you when I saw you  And I stared deep into your eyes  I meant to say ‘I love you’  But instead I said goodbye  Shadows in the city I’m a stranger to myself On these streets I’m someone else Shadows in the city Like a demon in the dark Come to tear us apart For all my good intentions There's a shadow in this dark  It comes to me infrequently  And breaks your perfect heart I don't know why I do it  (I) Apologize but it's too Late A single tear you leave me here and  Shadow slips away  Shadows in the city I’m a stranger to myself On these streets I’m someone else Shadows in the city Like a demon in the dark Come to tear us apart

Crystalline 06:02
Rush hour On an uptown train Doors open As she walks in She’s soaking Caught in the rain Her skin shines Crystalline Eyes meet You know where this goes Her key’s in They take off their clothes They’re soaking Caught in a dream Her skin shines like Crystalline The problem with believers They’ll let anyone in the door The problem with deceivers Is all the bodies buried under the floor boards Sailors knew sirens would sing From rocks off the cliffs by the sea The monsters with waiting teeth Their skin shines Crystalline Rush hour On an uptown train Doors open As she walks in She’s soaking Caught in the rain Her skin shines Crystalline

Glowing windows in the buildings from the elevated train I see a thousand different stories pass And faces without names I forget why I came here And forget why I stay And wonder if they'd notice If I tried to Slipped away What if I kept going What if I don't get off tonight What if I ride this to the edges Through the darkness to the light Could I find you there? Could I find you there? If I slipped away? What if there's no answer We’re all just hearts that have to fight Through the dangers of the rapids Through the darkness to the light Could I find you there? Could I find you there? If I slipped away?

I fell in love with the feeling.  I didn't fall in love with you. There was a song I  was singing  But it wasn't meant for you And I'm sorry I'm sorry That I can't stay I'm sorry We're light years away I bite your lip And you taste like summer time I can’t forget The days when you were mine Do you wander the streets every night Just to find me too? Lightyears Echos In the streetlights In between those Spaces in the moment Come and find me Where we let go Come and find me Where we let go I fell in love with a feeling And your funny faces That you were beautiful and broken In all the right places I'm sorry I'm sorry That I can't stay I'm sorry We're light years away Millions behind or lightyears ahead Our time is now- our time was then And I hear your voice inside of my head but 
It’s just a silhouette Do you wonder what happened To all of the love we lose? Lightyears Echos In the streetlights In between those Spaces in the moment Come and find me Where we let go Come and find me Where we let go Lightyears Do you want your tears back? Lightyears They’re gone I’m sorry
