Track Name: The Canopy
Lights
All I can see
Gunning for me
Ripe
Hide and seek
Dive
Safety beneath
The canopy will rise
Stave off retreat

Keep my heart awake
I can’t stay away

Hey
Repeat after me
Rhetoric won’t fail
For fallacy
Say
Safer this way
Undamaged, is ‘You’ll be okay’
All you can say?
Track Name: Give Up
We'll always belong to what we know
We can't do it alone
We can't let it go
When sorrow becomes to shift a soul
I will take you back on
I will take you on

Less fortunate
Would you ever give it up?

Out there in the alley
Out there where you wanna be
Game on 'til we're damaged
Give up so easily

We're made to depend
Not brave our turn
When we're out in the cold
Are we meant to learn?
So give up the bone
We're born alone
We can only be one
When we let it go

Less fortunate
Would you ever give it up?
(Little more you lose the little less I take)

Out there in the alley
Out there where you wanna be
Game on 'til we're damaged
Give up so easily

We are alone

Out there in the alley
Out there where you wanna be
Game on 'til we're damaged
Give up so easily
(All falls down)
Track Name: Rush
Calm down
Calm down you know
Calm down you know, no need to run, no need to rush around

Calm down
You always set off on the back foot
Calm down
Set transfixed upon familiar lines
Calm down, you know no need to run, no need to rush around

Slow down
Truth is a word we use to mean it
Slow down
We’re just reflections of a thousand parts
Slow down, you know, no need to run, no need to rush around.

If right and the wrong endure with different faces, where is the life beyond?
If right and the wrong endure with different faces, where is the life beyond?
No need to rush around, no need to rush around.

I’ve a lot to lose, I’d rather be without than face the truth, I’m really not special

Eyes up
Take a look beyond the confines
Eyes up
Take a look you’ll keep yourself alive
Eyes up, you know no need to run, no need to rush around.

I’ve a lot to lose, I’d rather be without than face the truth, I’m really not special
Track Name: Arrogant Love
Built for one as if we're meant to learn a thing
To serve instinct
Between the wars drinks to lonely souls begin
To serve instinct

This self-willed life

Fight this arrogant
Fight this arrogant love
Craving every brief encounter that can keep us in the dark
We should fight this arrogant
Fight this arrogant love
Louder tones of indiscretion
Shape an unforgiving past

Shedding tears, feel misled and laid out bare
To serve instinct
We are what's left behind when we're no longer there
To serve instinct

Fight this arrogant
Fight this arrogant love
Craving every brief encounter that can keep us in the dark
We should fight this arrogant
Fight this arrogant love
Louder tones of indiscretion
Shape an unforgiving past

I thought that love was contagious
And that it would save us
All night long
Track Name: A More Ordinary Time
A brief glance
Won't reveal what's really seen
Two lives alone here
Words hold
Such a weight said easily
Slow down entrust them to me

It was another time
A more ordinary time
I was right
You were wrong
I was right

Cheer the fools
Trust in truths tear up the rules
We are safer with me

It was another time
A more ordinary time
I was right
You were wrong
I was right

I'll hold on for hours
You'll lose unbelief
We're lost in translation
We'll get there you'll see
I am the one, he is not me
You know what to do
You see what you see
I waited for days
Then you gave us relief
I waited for days
You waited for me

It was another time
A more ordinary time
I was right
You were wrong
I was right
Track Name: Threads
What felt like a story hardly begun
Laid old and tired
Lies casting shadows upon
What keeps such tale from holding its own
The dark remains
Broad places ushering home

Come on come on, you know? You’re sure?
Black holes consume the largest stars
Come on come on, you know? You’re sure?
The words we speak
That hold their form
Can tell us anymore

This leaves us in a place where anything goes?
Of what I’m sure, there’s no book that’ll keep us afloat

Come on come on, you know? You’re sure?
Black holes consume the largest stars
Come on come on, you know? You’re sure?
The words we speak
That hold their form
Can tell us anymore

Hold the haunting grey
Where certainty had lay
Keep a humble place

Come on come on, you know? You’re sure?
Black holes consume the largest stars
Come on come on, you know? You’re sure?
