Track Name: Misery
Much quieter, as I lie stationary lost in closure.
And never far, if I could leave I'd never be without.

Misery, you and I.
Don't know if it's going to be or be alright.
Don't know how you're going to be tonight,
or to flee, or to fight,
when I'm living with you.

Your open arms,
just a cache of empty scenes that I've been leaning on.
And never far, when to give just seems like giving up.

Misery, you and I.
Don't know if it's going to be or be alright.
Don't know how you're going to be tonight,
or to flee, or to fight,
when I'm living with you.

Misery, you and I.
Don't know if it's going to be or be alright.
Don't know how you're going to be tonight,
or to flee, or to fight.
All to see the weaker side,
when you and me collide.
I'm living with you.
Track Name: Endless Awry
You won't take me alive,
with subtleties and schemes I won't describe.
Part of taking apart.
I caught at least a gleam from the shadow of doubt.
And I'm found.

Lost in the words that seethe inside,
in endless awry.
Set astray about a million miles,
in endless awry.

Captivated at times,
doesn't mean I'm captive here all the time.
Part of taking apart.
A little bit of me right here from the start.
And still I've found.

Lost in the words that seethe inside,
in endless awry.
Set astray about a million miles,
in endless awry.
Track Name: Fiction
For a piece of mind, fiction up your sleeve,
with a twisted smile, you're so hard to believe.

You make such little progress,
not a glimpse of anything.
If there were just a little substance,
just a whisper, anything.

Kind of off of the target, kind of off of your gait,
kind of soft around the edges, seems it's harder to take.

Just lead in then leave them without,
it's the same idea.

Now you're with without, just a thought on a shelf,
kind of feels like a lie, like you thought of yourself.

Kind of off of the target, kind of off of your gait,
kind of soft around the edges, seems it's harder to take.

Just lead in then leave them without,
it's the same idea.
Track Name: Impossibility
To always fault reactions when you're able,
'cause you don't give a fuck what's on their table.

I find a little bit overwhelms.
You've got to whittle it down.

Ought to listen to me, with the words you can't shake off,
it's an impossibility to have enough.

Always thought the apple falls away,
farther from reactions of today.

I find a little bit overwhelms.
You've got to simmer it down.

Ought to listen to me, with the words you can't shake off,
it's an impossibility to have enough.
Track Name: Colorless
If you can still believe me, I tried.
But somehow intentions go unrealized.
When we were only waiting for time,
obsessed with an ending, the steps in a mile.
The space for a margin of error,
leaves an absence of color, no hope for repair.

Because you were always right, and now I can't say goodbye.
I can't find direction, I'm lost in my steps,
chasing the memory of you.

When you're done with up, there's only down.
In absence of courtesy you don't make a sound.
And I feel as though I'm making things worse,
stalling all in reticence, no script to rehearse.
Keeping only questions in mind,
the kind for stealing daylight but hoping to find.

Because you were always right, and now I can't say goodbye.
I can't find direction, I'm lost in my steps,
chasing the memory of you.

Because you were always right, and now I can't say goodbye.
I can't find direction, I'm lost in my steps.
Every section is colorless, one space to the next.
And I want you right in front of me, with every breath.
I can't take my mind off of you.
Track Name: Making it Up
Found a place in the sun, can't escape, can't outrun.
So I'm breaking this down, and completely.
Just burn and scar indiscreetly, and now...

...I can't remember a time that similitude felt alright.
No one sees what it's like, or the reason.
No defeat so we'll drive, until it's seizing.
But in truth I don't mind, barely breathing.
I completely resign after this season.

Because I'm making it up,
trying to be, but I'm not.

So I'm breaking this down, down to pieces.
Just burn and scar indiscreetly.
In truth I don't mind, barely reaching.
I completely resign after this season.

Because I'm making it up,
trying to be, but I'm not.
Track Name: Permanent
Just spin me out,
takes all my senses to know you're about.
Have to feel around,
taking my chances to no result.

That's the feeling now, can't take any ground.
It takes a little time, in a permanent style.

That's a deeper slide,
taking my senses for a ride.
Hard to take your side,
taking my chances on your style.

That's the feeling now, losing permanent ground.
It takes a little time, in a permanent style.

Takes a little time to get things right,
may be little chance they ever might.
Takes a little time to burn outright,
taking my chances, know that I might.
Takes a little time to see things right,
losing my senses, losing time.
Track Name: Sidestep
Sidestep, you're caught in my mind.
The stage that I realize.
The state, the kinks in the wire,
that keep us from really trying.

Oh, could we love again, with all the things we should have known?
Oh, could we love again, with all the things that we know now?

Like glass caught in my eye.
The stage that I realize.
The state and what has transpired,
that keeps us from really trying.

Oh, could we love again, with all the things we should have known?
Oh, could we love again, with all the things that we know now?
Track Name: Estate
In time I slip from the same spot of bliss,
intentions always fall amiss.
Felt tired of holding on,
I've been holding out for all of this?
I've been holding on for the twist.

And I slide, oh my, now it's all mine.

Entire remission, because the same problem is,
just forward into solipsis.
I've been tired of waking up,
I've been tired of waking up to a dream,
that's not holding on for me.

Always watching it pass,
always knew it wouldn't last.
And I hold my head down in the words unspoken.
Going to burn all this down,
going to break all structure.
My estate, my lonely state, only breaks.
Only breaks my hands.
Keep coming down, and place those hands over my mouth.
In time to kiss you away in my loss.

And it's all mine.
Track Name: The Safest Plan
I couldn't stop, I guess that's okay.
Just fucking up, or what's in the way.

It feels like there's no place to land.
Just keep calm, that's the safest plan.

Always derailed or caught up in waves.
The anchor that's tied around my waist.

It feels like there's no place to land.
Just keep calm, that's the safest plan.
Time out.
Time's up.
Oh not again.
Track Name: Dark Ending
You're so irrational, the stupid things you make up.
It's so directional, another change you make up.
You're on the outside of, some other stained frame of mind.
There's no direction here, just little gates that appear.

You'll give up on a chance out of...
...scenes that give it all away.
Soon we'll see another dark ending.
It's like I wouldn't hope we're ending up.

You're so irrational, because everything is black and white.
There's no correction now, to make it seem worthwhile.

You'll give up on a chance out of...
...scenes that give it all away.
Soon we'll see another dark ending.
It's like I wouldn't hope we're ending up.
Track Name: Idlewild
Idlewild, what's that mean to you?
Do you ignore the past like you seem to do?

Inside us all, many words unsaid.
We never realize what is will always end.

Idlewild, what's that mean to you?
With all the past that's between us two?

Inside us all, many words unsaid.
We never realize what is will always end.
