Colorblind 03:51
I’ve been bad, you’ve been worse Trouble is, I know what its worth Lets live like girls and boys Imagining what it could be like I was tough, you were mean I don’t know why, you bother with me Do I, make you laugh? I’m always giving everything I can be grateful, but not yet I need you to hurt, but not yet I want you leave, but not yet I ask you to forget I’ll stay, if you ask me I’ll stay if you’ll have me I’ll stay, I’ll stay I’ll stay, but not yet

Southpole 03:42
I take you everywhere, buried in blue What, what a wreck Places that we’ve been, have crumbled to the ocean I dream of waves like buildings that take us down I tell you everything and wish you luck Don’t regret know Things that we’ve seen, are the imagined between you and me I’m reading water so why don’t you, what don’t you come right in? This is not the dream This is not the dream Oh This is not the dream This is not the dream This is not the dream This is not the dream I hate to tell you so I see you from below wrapped in light I wait so patiently Hanging up above, I reach for as I’m dragged out to sea Oh I wish you were with me This is not the dream This is not the dream Oh this is not the dream This is not the dream This is not the dream This is not the dream I hate to tell you so

Pastlives 04:18
In the distance, futures grow New lines trace thee empty place Knowing how luck can Turn the wheel to watch you spin It doesn’t hurt any less If you slow down for the crash ahead She couldn’t wait, to grow old The prettiest thing, I’ve ever known But I was too young to grow old I was too weak to let her go

Drift 04:39
I can go out, I can watch Stand and sway drown in company They say this is the place where you find All things you should want All the things you should envy I feel like, I’m ready, I’m ready I’ll leave a shameful part of me I was lost, I’ll go home Pick you up, lose control I know where I found All the things I accept All the things I can give Take me Take me, I’m ready I’ve I got someplace where I’m free.

Always 03:13
Time goes, so hold on All this now, will be memory People without names Kept for a time so say goodbye It’s easy to forget So we do, repeat our lies Never say what we mean Inside tomorrow we hide All gone, we’re the Only ones left behind We leave everything Even ourselves behind Always, always you (x4)

Erosion 03:07
Where are you? You lost me now Clever but you haven’t tried I saw you Falling Panicked inside, you're paralyzed You’ve got the words So show me Let me know, when we start to bleed. Before you go Go ahead, go ahead I’ll hold my breath What’s left, what left I’ll clasp my hands When it turns to sand Before you go Go ahead, go ahead

Sub Rosa 04:25
I can’t escape, don’t leave me Still lIfe, receding The rumors are in reach The skies are stained in bleach Unquiet in the streets A desert, concealed in concrete The walls, the walls, the walls Are suffocating beneath the paint, beneath the paint The sound , the sound, the sounds Is contemplating against constraint, against constraint I must confess, I must confess Hush, hush, you silly mess I think it’s getting close to the end Just yourself to spend Sitting waiting, no one’s calling, counting maybes, maybe The walls, the walls, the walls Are suffocating beneath the paint, beneath the paint The sound , the sound, the sounds Is contemplating against constraint, against constraint

ABC Anxiety 04:09
Well I know Who’s there?

Low Fantasy 04:08
Now that the world is over Looking back, just looking back Can’t make it up anymore When the future is behind Expectations done Without shape life is flat Run, in circles You weren’t going anywhere On and off and on and off and on and off again (x 2) When the empty light swings over Trance, modern night No one, separate ones Together, standing still On and off and on and off and on and off again (x 2)

Decoys 04:43
You were going on about your life of ease But you never knew more than what you want pleased In endless days which lay in the sun In the last in mirage, would you stare or would you run I saw you casted away, in the heavens in the sky Always wondering, was this all for you and why? When you’re on your own and you're blind to woe Could you ever know, you’re not alone So, meet me outside To see the sky is falling Meet me outside To see the cities burning Meet me outside To hear the noises growing Meet me outside To hear the ruble yearning Meet me outside There will no tomorrow Meet me outside I could be closer to you Meet me outside Meet me outside Meet me outside Meet me outside
