Track Name: Secret Beast
Do make your way to the salty bay
Heel to toe
Only for a while
I'll try the heights of the powder white
Sandy dunes
Out of the waves I don't hear your voice
Far behind
Fade away
When you're in the dark then be the horse
Secret beast
Rearing up
Gone far away I'm the one who is drowning now
In your voice
Always on my mind
All of the others don't have a choice
But to fall behind
Fade away
Track Name: It Means Shadow
You know how to accommodate
The cold remake and perpetuate
The mend for an end
My head is spun and my body sinks
Into sync with that bicorn ink
Nothing more than what it's for

It means a shadow is keeping its ground
So long life and brighter light now
Try
This is your better

If I could wait just a little ways
Outside my mind I would see the space
And I do
I do
Track Name: Riot
Keep to the streets a short distance
We will try
Ash in the trees and repeating
We're alive
We're alive

Sleep, breathe
Could I take your life
When it comes the time?

You know that we carry the fire
It will not die
Beautiful, we will go on for miles
Go on for miles
Go on for miles

Tracks in the snow and soft bleeding
Time to hide
Clutching my chest and your fingers
Terrified, perfect eyes

Run, fly
But you're paralyzed
You start to cry

You know that we carry the fire
It will not die
Beautiful, we will go on for miles
Go on for miles
Go on for miles
Track Name: Power Ballad
Louder than any kind of music
Burns this dying energy
Stumbling through another morning
Drained
Not another word
Bellicose and cold

Envious of elegance in endings
Now staggering away
Tired hope
No, I will never leave you
Will
Fortuitously breathe you
It's blowing us away
Track Name: Even
Low in my heart
Distill a plan
I shake but I must
Just go on with it
Even the scale
No pressure
And no push of love
You balanced me out
Baby, I'm nothing now
At all

Kept it close to me
And so it died
You find another one
I learn to slip away
But if it follows you
Then return (let it return)
To ordinary mess
And my ordinary fantasy

I memorized
Your highs and your lows
Deserts and snows
Now I chart across
The topography of loss

Kept it close to me
And so it died
You find another one
I learn to slip away
But if it follows you
Return (let it return)
To ordinary mess
And my ordinary fantasy
Track Name: Let the Right One In
Roam whiter winter nights
Thumbing sharper knives
To make me better
Chart our progress
Run across the stars
Come for me

When I see you there
I don't have any other thing I have to be
I don't have to know it
I just believe it
Lifted from the bottom
Pollen up in the breeze

Wait
I'm dew on the ground
I'd follow through though I have found
To know better
Extending boundaries
Fly across the stars
Come to me

When I see you there
I don't have any other thing I have to be
I don't have to know it
I just believe it
Lifted from the bottom
Pollen up in the breeze
Track Name: Press
Tapping on floors
White doors
Sounds as you're coming in
Comfort has come to me
We don't need the hyped height
Hold me all night
Rest with me I'll rest with you
Thought we would make it through

Press, press
On and on until we fall
Press, press
On and on until we fall

Sugar eyes on shaken cries
I'm lying flat on my back
Hiding out from the attack
In the middle of night
Do us right
To rest with me, I'll rest with you
I thought we would make it through

Press, press
On and on until we fall
Press, press
On and on until we fall
Track Name: Primitive
Be quick, deliver
Tear off the bark
Be alone
Still standing out in front
What have I done?
Patience is dangerous

Mind the heart breaking system
As you mine tender fields
Deep in the forest
Together for parts of me

So still, so silent
How to appear
The sign is deep
I wanna float, I wanna shimmer
I am aware
Patience is dangerous

Mind the heart breaking system
As you mine the tender field
Deep in the forest
Together for parts of me

And the snow started falling
Dark on the earth
Gone, getting thicker
Together for parts of me
Track Name: The Wire
Calm dark blue now
Keep me up I listen
Answer your own questions
In strange pale moonlight
Coming down between us
As if I could believe it
I can't find the wire

What runs from me and through you
Cannot be pulled
I tried and I tried
But you and I still dance on this fire bright wire

Wait for nature
To give us explanations
Like animals in headlights
Headlights set me free
You make patterns
On and off you flicker
My reactions getting quicker
I can't find the wire
I can't find the wire

What runs from me and through you
Cannot be pulled
I tried and I tried
But you and I still dance on the fire bright wire

What runs from me and through you
Cannot be pulled
I tried and I tried
But you and I still dance on this fire bright wire
Track Name: Structural Hostility
Deepest flight
To wrap our dark scarf near the outer edge
Of the end of soft warm senses
That endless want
Plugged with fluorescence
So it glows like a need
Through the shadows
Of hope and ease
Now unrecognizable

Time to cross
Territory of memory
I'll ride the range
In which I built a cage
I burst through

Capacity for empathy
It can atrophy if you don't mind
An empty house
And being unrecognizable

Time to cross
Territory of memory
I'll ride the range
In which I built a cage
I burst through

Done
Done
I'm done
