Locusts 03:46
I used to think you walked on water I used to think that you breathed fire I thought that you could hold the sun and keep the locusts on the run but now I see you as you really are so much larger than the stripes & the scars holding everything and everyone including me never done I used to think you were invincible I used to think that you worked miracles I thought you were the only one that could hold all my love but now I see you as you really are black and blue and torn apart something beautiful, immovable waiting in the night for arms of light shed our skin bide our time we'll be just fine one way or another

Tied Up 03:34
we want someone to love something to be proud of to prove there is no shame in fighting this way day after day we need something to save something to show the way to prove it's not in vain fighting this way day after day an endless repetition take up our places and cycle through blinded by your stolen light wrapped inside your ropes & wires fighting for the good fight disappearing in the night blinded by your stolen light
3.
Under Over 04:49
what's the under over that you'll leave here disappointed what chances are you taking are they worth what you're making it might be contagious but I'm immune to debasement and I won't run away do you find it attractive a guilded and practiced affect you're taking is it worth what you're faking it might be contagious but I see no replacement and I won't run away i can't stand to see you so sad I won't leave you alone in your head even a makeshift shelter could fix this til we burn even a spendthrift holed up in excess could return

Juventud 04:19
I know you've got a lot to say I know you found another way wild strong & free inventing everything baby when the lights come up are we covered in the dust thousands of empty dreams a world that's crumbling hey-oh-hey turn your head & close your eyes as our fall becomes a dive I know we got a past to kill I know we got a life to build wild strong & free we start from nothing baby when the lights come up you'll find that its enough thousands of empty dreams a world is dying
5.
Seismic 03:03
walking through this world you don't see the things i see ride alongside with me no place else to be nothing i can run from nowhere left to hide underneath the obvious nothing left but time breaking up your bedroom our hearts are on the floor pick apart & play it out then come back for more starting off the day with another earthquake thinking you can shake me but I won't let you take me running through your paces looking for the doors empty on the inside settling the score driven to distraction waiting for a sign playing at the living while dying on the vine no time left for mourning sweeping through the change laying down our burden riding out our fate this time is mine I won't let you waste me I won't let you shake me
6.
No Stars 04:01
the patron saint of drunks & fools must be watching over me & you tonight make our way following the stars get kicked out of every bar tonight my baby's playing hard to get until there are no offers left & that's just the way he wants it my baby's in his sunday best when there's no one to impress and that's just the way we want it wish I could glow in the dark, be the one to light a spark tonight burning up our charcoal hearts in the ashes make a start tonight
7.
Elemental 03:49
You can't make me take myself apart wind down my mechanical heart anymore You can't leave me to go walking blind turn off my electric eyes anymore You can't hold me in this haunted place closed up and laid to waste anymore You can't pull me from all my desires burning with an animal fire anymore
8.
Fanatic 03:21
there's a ringing in my head that calls me every night I go out looking for relief but i know you're not in sight the world drops down when you're not around, it's mechanical, i'm fanatical, oh no there's a quiet in my heart that grows throughout the day I go out smile into it but i know it's here to stay the world drops down when you're not around, it's mechanical, i'm fanatical, oh no there's a nothing that remains and grows to fill the space I go out covering it up but you see it in my face the world drops down when you're not around, it's mechanical, i'm fanatical, oh no feels like nothing's easy, walking wound so tight I dream of your many faces during broad daylight
9.
Low Reversal 03:44
I am a pale daughter and a front runner disappointed ancestors in a race of culture i am a humble watcher and a ready dispatcher when he loved another i carried on without him I have a silent totem in the void of knowing and a soundless ocean to drown your hidden notions I have a thousand years of endless pioneers crossing through the land to make a final stand when everything gets stripped away standing naked in the rain whole worlds get swept away only the blinding light remains
