Temporary 07:41
Shadows to distort our faces, mirrors they have all mislead Shallow graves for slow decay, we are temporary Our bodies fade Explosions of an eastern sky, rid of empty promises Skin resolves to melt away and blend within To lose ourselves we blend within, finalize CHORUS: Distant like postcard words on the back of a faded scene Screaming at the wind, by a river in the rain Contours in the rug where the witch has been swept Done in by her broom and the company that she kept REPEAT CHORUS [When we’re whole, when we’re whole We would give anything just to be everything]
The Dunes 08:41
Deep End 07:41
Morning bell, fractured light A passing glance, one last goodbye Too many words, broken faith A fleeting chance for a clean escape The reasons why this won’t work out So pack your things, go off the deep end Go off the deep end A burned out house, a frozen sea A silent prayer for a chance to flee An ocean’s width caught in between Stolen time or severed limbs The reasons why, this won’t work out So pack your things, go off the deep end So pack your things, go off the deep end Go off the deep end Go off the deep end
Violent Bow 08:56
Did you see a pattern, were the walls taking shape? Did you see that one coming, were you frozen in place? Was it all that they promised, these signals that bend? These currents so vital, to burn our mistakes CHORUS: Do I stop trying, if it starts to make sense? As they just keep fighting until the last one lies dead And if you were an ocean, I’d have no one to thank For all these opinions and a tongue that won’t shake All that I am, these words I have thrown This air I have swam in, I owe this to you REPEAT CHORUS After you’re gone, how do I breathe again? After you’re gone, gone from here
