Track Name: Let's Send A Signal
Chains on our arms
Masks on our faces
We cover it up
For nothing at all

Let's send a signal out there
One that they can't ignore
Let's find some trouble worth making
We'll hang our heads when it's done

When nobody's watching
You think you're alone
Confide in yourself
But watch what you say
These words are like poison
As you feed us like rats
And watch as we die

Let's send a signal out there
One that they can't ignore
Let's find some trouble worth making
We'll hang our heads when it's done

No second chance
A life in the balance
You've been here before
No stranger to you
Hopelessly lost
Just hang on so tightly
I won't let you go
Until I'm done with your soul

Let's send a signal out there
One that they can't ignore
Let's find some trouble worth making
We'll hang our heads when it's done
Track Name: Forward Eyes
I should know that you're leaving here
I'd shut your mouth forsaken me
I'll never show my eyes today
The wolves are safe they've made it outside

Don't know what's come over me
Such a mouth full of gluttony
It's simple when you're here next to me
But forward eyes

I don't know but I think it's time
We switched on the spotlight
Watch it burn down
It's just a shame that it came to this
Our hand are tied
Our wounds are gaping

I don't know but I think it's time
We switched on the spotlight
Watch it burn down
It's just a shame that it came to this
Our hand are tied
Our wounds are gaping

Snub your nose in sincerity
Complacent in your monotony
Remembering all that used to be
The weeds are blowing down your doorstep

Ask me how and I'll tell you dear
What happened when you were nowhere near
A lonely place that I hide in fear
With forward eyes

I don't know but I think it's time
We switched on the spotlight
Watch it burn down
It's just a shame that it came to this
Our hand are tied
Our wounds are gaping

I don't know but I think it's time
We switched on the spotlight
Watch it burn down
It's just a shame that it came to this
Our hand are tied
Our wounds are gaping

Falling out of your control
Letting go of all we've known
Knowing something here's gone wrong
Watch as you come crashing down
Track Name: Biloquist
I know my scenery's changing
A cold wind blows into my face
Better think twice about taking
Anymore steps before falling

And I crawl on my knees
As you pick up everything
And I broke it once again
We're gonna get it right someday

Hanging round waiting for something
Holding our breath till we turn blue
Better not whisper in my ear
All the things that I can't hear

And I crawl on my knees
As you pick up everything
And I broke it once again
We're gonna get it right someday
Track Name: Escape Pod 9
The sea is in a picture
She keeps in case the walls break
And tumble at her feet again
She measures all her failures
Like footsteps in the back yard
Circled in a pathway of stone

Don't look to see if I'm still waiting
Don't say the things that I know you don't mean

The flowers that she laid there
Are wilted in the soil
Blown away like flies in the wind
The shades of here remind us are blacked for a reason
She tries so hard to keep it inside

Don't look to see if I'm still waiting
Don't say the things that I know you don't mean

The sky it melts around her
The stars she's lost are millions
Keeps them safe inside here home
The boxes are all faded
The empty old reminders
Of what she's left behind in her wake

Don't look to see if I'm still waiting
Don't say the things that I know you don't mean
Track Name: Nothing Else
Walking down the empty spaces
Look out as the shadows call me
Tell myself that I'm not alone
Running faster than my body
Finding ways to push against me
Wishing I could feel it all

Cold air fills my empty face
As real as anyone can make it
Don't think I can stop this right now
Crash with you along the pavement
Finding all that made us take this
Way too far we start it again

Nothing else
Comes this close
Nothing feels the same
Nothing else could ever take me
Where I want to be

Twitching as I feel you tremble
Close my eyes you start to wonder
When this all slipped out of the edge
Falling down but chasing after
All the things I thought I left her
Although things come crashing again

Holding on to what I followed
Try to break this vicious cycle
Breaking the things that I've done
Racing to the end of sorrow
Fill my head with thoughts I borrow
Stolen from the friends I've known

I fear
Things are changing
Watching waiting
So near
And so far from all we've wanted

Nothing else
Comes this close
Nothing feels the same
Nothing else could ever take me
Where I want to be

Nothing else
Comes this close
Nothing feels the same
Nothing else could ever take me
Where I want to be

Cold air fills my empty face
As real as anyone can make it
Don't think I can stop this right now
Crash with you along the pavement
Finding all that made us take this
Way too far we start it again
Track Name: Someday Soon
All our feelings hit the ground
Ordinary I have found
Your focus
Fading in and out
Look away and I'm somewhere else

There's nothing left to do
We'll both forget this
Someday soon

All this breathing wears me down
Leaves me breathless that I've found
Your face smiling back at mine
Looking past all we hide

There's nothing left to do
We'll both forget this
Someday soon

Waves are crashing overhead
Sinking slowly in what you said
I am floating away
Pass me by as I sink again

There's nothing left to do
We'll both forget this
Someday soon
Track Name: Recycle
Docile hypocrite
Infected by your scent
Sporadic consequence
Bipolar opposite

Down by the ruins
Of these grey colored fields
We chastise the innocence
And say that nothing is real
We're tangled in the memories
And we know we can never go back
So we'll hide our secrets in solace
With my precious insomniac

Harbored by your sanctity
Outcast by your light
Counting all the moments
That we leave ourselves behind
Out past the corridor
You'll find a crooked path
Bending shifting onerous
Savor the taste of despair

Down by the ruins
Of these grey colored fields
We chastise the innocence
And say that nothing is real
We're tangled in the memories
And we know we can never go back
So we'll hide our secrets in solace
With my precious insomniac
Track Name: Distant
I know the things I should say
But I refuse to let you in
A subtle hint that again
Divides us while we go our separate ways

And when the moment comes
You won't understand
So just take it
Another distant stare before you fade into me
All is wasted
I miss you more my dear than I could ever say
In this moment
So take my hand and walk
Along these broken dreams
As we drift away

I failed to see
The way you made your contact
Is holding on to me
Don't let it go
The kind of mess we're making
Is the only one that I still know

As I look back on my life
Will you remind me how it was
To take a part of me with you
It takes too long to figure it out
I guess I should have known
But I hope you feel the same in the end

And when the moment comes
You won't understand
So just take it
Another distant stare before you fade into me
All is wasted
I miss you more my dear than I could ever say
In this moment
So take my hand and walk
Along these broken dreams
As we drift away
Track Name: Flinch
Flinch
Cash the funds
And shock the canopy
Drenched on the cusp
Of your tenderness

I watch as black waves of light
Catch your golden skin
The hardest part
Of being here
Is lying next to me

I dont defend it
Because I know it's all wrong
I can't deny it
When it's crawling up my spine
I'm ashamed of
The monster I've become
But it feels right
It feels right

Grip tight the clasp
I'm addicted to
Watch how it bleeds
I swear I never knew
That this was
All on the brink
Now it's been ripped in two
A twisted arm snaps again
It's right in front of you

I dont defend it
Because I know it's all wrong
I can't deny it
When it's crawling up my spine
I'm ashamed of
The monster I've become
But it feels right
It feels right

I dont defend it
Because I know it's all wrong
I can't deny it
When it's crawling up my spine
I'm ashamed of
The monster I've become
But it feels right
It feels right
Track Name: Static
The night is gone
Littered by the sun
Illuminate the wrecking ball
You're tied to

The postman's come
The letters are all gone
You signed your name
And bled the things you'd hope they'd find

So long
My time with you is done
Forget the lies and try to find some patience
But don't cry
I've seen those tears before
The side effects may linger on
They're quite nice

I should have said
That everything's alright
Let you decide what's broken down
And hide the truth

So long
My time with you is done
Forget the lies and try to find some patience
But don't cry
I've seen those tears before
The side effects may linger on
They're quite nice

So this is how it ends
Your knife inside my back
Don't run to my defense
Your static flows around me
Scratching out my insides

At least I know that this will all unfold
Pretending that we never shared
A thing or two

So long
My time with you is done
Forget the lies and try to find some patience
But don't cry
I've seen those tears before
The side effects may linger on
They're quite nice
Track Name: Aphid
I'm not afraid of all the things we'll never say
It won't fix the broken place we've made our home
All alone I'll suffer I've made my own mistakes
With thoughts of you still running through my mind

Let's assume you care about all the things I have to say
I might have found a better way to forget you
Don't accuse don't take the blame
Let it fall to where it lays
We'll run around till we crash to the ground again

All that I know
I've found a waste of all our time
Cause it is all my fault
My selfish wounded heart

Memories slowly fading as darkness takes me in
Letting go and knowing that it wont come back
Lost again I know now we'll never find our way
Let's lose ourselves in times we know that we never had

Let's assume you care about all the things I have to say
I might have found a better way to forget you
Don't accuse don't take the blame
Let it fall to where it lays
We'll run around till we crash to the ground again
Track Name: Salton
As you pass my window
Your sweet sadistic smile
It takes me while I struggle
As starts and fits collide

I may seem to be
Wrapped up tight around your finger
One false move and I'll come undone
Sink your teeth and take a bite

Your essence captures me
I cannot catch myself
I'm sinking in the feeling
Or am I feeling nothing
Although I can't believe
In anything at all
I'm letting go of something
That I've held dear for so long

The ground it shakes below me
A sense of well enough
It sucks the life around me
With selfish empty love

Your essence captures me
I cannot catch myself
I'm sinking in the feeling
Or am I feeling nothing
Although I can't believe
In anything at all
I'm letting go of something
That I've held dear for so long

I may seem to be
Wrapped up tight around your finger
One false move and I'll come undone
Sink your teeth
Track Name: Where The Oxygen Gets Thin
Concrete skyline fades
Another day comes and goes
The desolate where they lay
Echo and follow me down

As they say

I'll never be
The one to harbor all the blame
Conquer my fears
I hope that you can do the same

The end is near
I say my final good byes
We'll meet again my friend
I hope in happier times

As they say

I'll never be
The one to harbor all the blame
Conquer my fears
I hope that you can do the same
Track Name: Salton (long version)
As you pass my window
Your sweet sadistic smile
It takes me while I struggle
As starts and fits collide

I may seem to be
Wrapped up tight around your finger
One false move and I'll come undone
Sink your teeth and take a bite

Your essence captures me
I cannot catch myself
I'm sinking in the feeling
Or am I feeling nothing
Although I can't believe
In anything at all
I'm letting go of something
That I've held dear for so long

The ground it shakes below me
A sense of well enough
It sucks the life around me
With selfish empty love

Your essence captures me
I cannot catch myself
I'm sinking in the feeling
Or am I feeling nothing
Although I can't believe
In anything at all
I'm letting go of something
That I've held dear for so long

I may seem to be
Wrapped up tight around your finger
One false move and I'll come undone
Sink your teeth
