Track Name: Make it Easy
carrying on
making sounds in the dark
for so goddamn long
and starting to turn
feel the change again
feel the twist and turn

and tense from the nights
where i was weeping in fear
mhm
and desperate and young
like i wish i was
or like i know i was

you make it easy
you make it easy

pacing the moon
on the ripples and waves
and dodging bicycles
and give it a light
im sweating from you saying
"we should honor us"

and i can recite
all your lovers names
and how i should have been
stronger than i was
when your smile was clear
i couldn't avert my gaze

you make it easy you make it easy
you make it easy you make it easy
Track Name: Say It (Like You Mean It)
complicated, underdressed
with wires to the ceiling
and notes along your bedroom door
as to how you are feeling
and each one is an open sign

say it
say it like you mean it

reaching up and asking why
do i have to lose this feeling
and keeping my hands on your sides
while we curve into the feeling
and you lean to me like you do

and say it
say it like you mean it

navigate the intricates
of your breathing gone rogue
and everyone can hear you
from the street and from the alcove
while we're caught up in our own time too
yeah we're caught up in our own time too
Track Name: Within Without
it starts out slow and you give it time
and you find truth in the darkest line
and you've spent years mourning what you've lost
a modern sign you can't get across
so let it out

and going out in the morning you
feel a sting on your fading youth
and grip the train when it starts to move
and i looked out but I couldn't see you
so let it out

(repeat 1st)
Track Name: Myths
if this ain't then what is true?
you sit sometimes so confused
and let it wash over you

to take and to torment them
you torch all their citizens
we're back at the start again

we're back at the start again
we're back at the start again

//

they watch as we recollect
the distance, the dollars spent
and regret our old intents

and send up our satellites
as secular prototypes
but they still don't realize

a gift to recuperate
just waiting to decimate
the ways that they feel safe

if this aint then what is true?
we all wait the darkness through
and let it wash over you

we're back at the start again
we're back at the start again
we're back at the start again
we're back at the start again
Track Name: The Fiction
sitting amongst the desolate rocks
as you sing for absolution
sing your belief and sing your reply
on all this damn frustration
/i'm not talking about religion
can we get back to the fiction?

passing the boughs, the curve of the branch
and your only vague connection
was faith of design, the mountains of ash
obscure all your old visions
/you are your own confession
i'm not talking about religion
can we get back to the fiction?

you're pleading why
won't my words line
up with my mind

struggle against the staggering tide
as you strive for validation
plea for an end you feel to survive
oh you'd die for HIS affections
/don't give me some confession
you'll die in your abstraction
i'm not talking about religion
can we get back to the fiction?
Track Name: Honesty
heres the truth:
i've been scratching at the walls each night
'cause you know exactly who i am

but can't quite reach
deep enough to strangle whats beneath
and you know exactly who i am

but i'm not that kind of gone
no i'm not that kind of gone

and staying up
past the dawn of darkened figure eights
'cause you know exactly who i am

and who i've been
is part of pasts that i will never see
'cause you know exactly who i am

//

and im not that kind of gone
im not that kind of gone
and i know exactly who you are
oh i know exactly who you are
Track Name: We're All In This Together
we're all in this together
duck and run while i take cover
because i feel like i've been robbed
of my senses, all i've got

then i started to wake up
in my sweat and in the dark

we're all in this together
LISTEN UP i'm done forever
come and claim your crooked lines
or theyre going up in the fire

and i feel i wanna die
feel the heat and feel the fire
cause you know where this is going
we're gonna burn among the ruins
Track Name: Glowing Scenes
looking through, reaching up
past the stone
of when i spent all my time
panicked at home
a new wreck each night
i didn't realize
but its all true
its all true

looking through, honey i
glimpse the moon
between trees and mountain lines
all glowing scenes
and thought i was home
when i lost my song

but wake with the dawn
we can't all belong
we each have our lie
we can't all belong
Track Name: Only You
i wanna feel my time inside
crave, touch and making heat divide

and i'll rearrange to suit my needs
yeah i'll bend and break my only leaves
for only you

i wanna be my darkest self
change, change my burdens all into wealth

and all along the broken nights
i see lonely making lonelier right
and i see only you

(repeat)
Track Name: All the Time
if you're chasing time
can i still remind
that the clatter of the rain isn't telling me to stay
and the treeline blurs
with the swell of birds
reeling in the night like a message or design

and can't be the one to hold and to stay
but want to feel close to something someday

but i feel it all the time and i hope that you don't mind
that i don't want to explain what i sing or what i say

//

and my simplest line
that i use sometimes
is nobody sees the truth, that we're all just born to lose
but on lighter notes
we can make the most
of this burning effigy that has burdened history

but won't be the one to always repeat
its all too undone to say what i mean

and i still feel it all the time and i hope that you mind
that i don't want to explain what i sing or what i say

oh its all the time
its all the time
its all the time
its all the time
