Track Name: Moon Tomb
Lay me down
So I can see you
Through the window The view of the moon

There's a door
I can feel you
Feels like new when
You pull me through

Cause this world is too much for me
Wanna lock me in and hide the key
In my tomb is where I'll be
With you for eternity

Maybe we can make a living
All alone, isolated dreams
The moon pulls our new beginning
Finally we will be free

Cause this world is too much for me
Wanna lock me in and hide the key
in my tomb is where I'll be
With you for eternity

Hiding, hiding.
I told the moon to come with me and hide away
I told the sun I would crawl back another day
I told her I would crawl back another day
I wanna crawl wanna crawl back another day x2
Track Name: King
The king stares back at me
a spitting mouth aimed at me since I was 14
Anger in his heart he stains my mind, he won't realize
I'm afraid to die

My king will you have mercy
Do you see my hands shakey, heart racey
When your words don't suffice will you turn to physicality
Will you stab into me

I wake up in a safe bed queen sized and warm
These sheets aren't torn like my mind is worn

Muscles tense crippling, fear gripping
I'm fear gripping
Will I ever be a safety net, to my shoulders your clinging

Or will my weakness cry out, thrusting splinters straight into my mouth
another wound to heal, another thorn to feel

I wake up in a safe bed queen sized and warm
these sheets aren't torn like my mind is worn

You, you stripped me bare
Through my power you will tear
You stripped me bare
Track Name: Nexus
Scratch myself away to reveal
My dire need for you
Through my core through my heart
you break through

I couldn't fill the space tell me how
how to find your face in a crowd
When what I'm looking for won't stoop as low

and I know, you are mine to keep even if it's only in my sleep
and I know when your feelings show, they don't unleash whats truly in my soul

in my soul you are mine to hold, you are mine to hold.

My nerves keep on hurting me, so I move real slow
Your testing my insecurities, you're dragging me down low

I couldn't fill the space tell me how
how to find your face in a crowd when what I'm looking for won't stoop as low

and I know you are mind to keep even if it's only in my sleep
and i know when your feelings show they don't unleash whats truly in my soul

in my soul in my my x10000
Track Name: Dripping
Months without you and you're still here
Banging round my head hurting my ears
As comfortable as I can be when I'm alone
But it ends when I hear you breathe through the phone

Blaming me for toxicity
Friends digging into our intimate history
Violating when I'm at my lowest point
It just never felt right to me

I walk with my head down
dont wanna see you by mistake
Fleeing the thoughts of you every moment I'm awake

Something so sturdy once so strong
Slipping through my fingers into your arms
Now I'm dripping on the pavement, dripping on the pavement
Along with the air conditioner mist

I walk with my head down
Don't wanna see you by mistake
fleeing the thoughts of you every moment I'm awake

Maybe I can't rely, on any other guy
But it doesn't matter baby, cause you can't rely on me
Track Name: Palm Sweat
There are days where I have to get closer
You feel so good I can't keep my composure
So I'm afraid of the girl I'll become when its over
Cause these days spent with you are nothing but numbered

Palm Sweat, I'm in debt
I'm in a dilemma that I just do not get
Palm sweat, I'm in debt
I'm in a dilemma

Laying with you surrounded by blue skies
This day is too perfect so I tell a white lie
"I wanna be with you boy until I can't take it"
But little does he know we're not gonna make it, no.

Palm sweat, I'm in debt
I'm in a dilemma that I just do not get
Track Name: Proximity
Well I'm loving you and I feel so wrong
I'm loving you and I feel so right
When you've been with me all along
I wanna make love to you all night
and I've been brushing off all that they say
Cause boy you make me feel so right
Please don't go away from my space
My proximity right in my sight
Track Name: Forget You
She's a girl with a hat on, tryna keep her thoughts in
In the morning she explodes with thought
From the minute the day begins

She's a girl with a hat on
Tryna keep her feet steady
But the whiskey's in her blood from last night
and she stumbles down the street

People take her freedom, careless when she has a thought
Wants to feel emotion unfortunately she forgot
People take her freedom careless when she has a thought
wants to feel emotion

I wish I could forget you
I wish you could forget me
The things I do to make it through
Cant find the means to be free

What happened to the wind that cured her every wound
whisked the hair right from her face whispering we'll be home soon
what happened to the rain that drowned her every thought
drowned it so deep in her sea she swears to God she forgot

People take her freedom careless when she has a thought wants to feel emotion
unfortunately she forgot
Track Name: Shame
Your hands crumble in the wind
Your hands work to no end
So you face the trials within
When will it end when will they listen

When you lose all that you have
When the world breaks you in half
How much mercy will you give
When will it end when will they listen

Spit on your chin again
You lost the game again
You drowned in shame again, again you drowned in shame

repeat ^^

Take the words from my mouth
Track Name: Tired Tongue
This is the part I hate the most
my quiet phase
the bugs made a home on my window
and i count the days
Till I can breathe again, I wanna breathe again, how do I breathe again

It's hard when the days are slow and I can't get ahold of
All thats in my hands, so I let it all go
Floating down the stream, just my burdens and me, floating down the stream

Will it matter when the sun comes up?
Out of bed I come, and I feel real rough.

So I look out the doors and windows, someone's watching me
It's not in the shape of you, but it's your entity
Hover over me, even in my sleep, you're all I see

And the shadows on the sidewalk, look like they're following me
and when my pace comes to a stop they hide behind the trees
Hiding from my view, crying over you, hiding from my view

Will it matter when the sun comes up
out of bed i come and i feel real rough
so I walk into my lonely city
To stitch the fabric on my tired tongue

Take out the ink and write it out you're finally gone
revealing to myself that I'm the one who's wrong
Wallow in my room wallow in my gloom
You'll be lighter soon, you'll be lighter soon x10000
Track Name: Loner
Yeah I know you'll stay the same
I'll shelter you from the pouring rain
Didn't have to do this but I chose to
and i know your fortress ain't opposed to it

My chance to beg has passed and gone
ignoring the times you did me wrong
Then later I'll blame myself after all my friend I'm the one with the wealth, so.

How do you know when to be a loner?
When the friends you have, well they're all goners?
I'll put them away back in my locker
just to be there when I need them

I paved the way for you and you felt it
didn't like the way i dealt it
as if you owed me something else, like i helped just to be happier with myself and
Should I take it back and be on good terms?
Should I not be aggressive and firm?
I just wanted you to learn but instead we all just crashed and burned, so.

How do you know when to be a loner
when the friends you have, well they're all goners?
I'll put them away back in my locker
Just to be there, when I need them

I remember when we were together
When I was silent it was always better
I bit my tongue for your sweet comfort
Now I'm gone, I'm gone

and I wonder what you're thinking, every day I'm reminiscing
I'm going backwards
Track Name: Cecilia
When my eyes are dim
I'll sing for you
Like when you bled, you sang your tune
Your gold dress was stained red
but still you held your holy head

Crown my head, Cecilia
Roses and lilies, Cecilia
When I sang, the birds they fled, Cecilia
But you made your way to me

Cecilia, I pine for you
When my head is falling apart
Into the hands of a wretched man
Who only wishes to halt my heart

Crown my head, Cecilia
Roses and Lilies, Cecilia
When I sang birds fled, Cecilia
But you made your way to me

One day I thought I lost you
But my silence built a wall
So I sang a tune so sad the birds flew
Turns out you've been here all along
You've been swimming in my body
Swimming in my body
Swimming in my body you've been here all along x2

Crown my head, Cecilia
Roses and Lilies, Cecilia
When I sang birds fled, Cecilia
But you made your way to me.
