The Canopy 02:44
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?

Give Up 03:15
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)

Rush 03:35
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

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

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

Threads 06:10
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?
