Come Through 04:12
I feel it coming up behind me It's like a memory, just remind me The rhythm falls like stones around me Across the water horns are sounding I hear you Come to me I run my fingers through the riches To make it real we throw the switches I let you coax it out of me We close our eyes and set it free I hear you Come to me I feel you Come through me

Yellow Lines 04:05
I’m crossing all the yellow lines I swerve between them just in time My pockets full of rusty blades My heart is like a hot grenade I brush the moonstones with my feet In the hush of the empty streets Does the coolness of the night love me Sweet delusion, false trajectory A straight line will take you back to your own bed Get into your body and out of your own head Just when I think that I’m alone I can feel my thoughts are not my own I’m being chased by another’s dreams Distance isn’t something real it seems A straight line will take you back to your own bed Get into your body and out of your own head Outpace the weight and run to the light This road doesn’t end, you’ll sleep when you’re dead

Elevation 04:13
This elevation Too high to hear us Above the nation Too wild to fear us And you dream in lies And we awaken To a new dark world The harder they fall Does it matter at all Some hair out of place And dust in the eyes Unclench your fingers And look at you palms What you held in your sleep This morning is gone Invert the colors And take the tour Hasn’t it always been this way? The harder they fall Does it matter at all Some hair out of place And dust in the eyes The taller I stand Hand over hand Better not to stagger Than to seem unwise (I don’t remember...)
4.
Stumble down among the trees Find yourself on hands and knees Only you have heard the sound No other witnesses around And who are you, who are you on this day For once only you, only you can say And will you hear another name Tell me what has changed and what’s the same With no one to see and no reflection No compass pointing in false direction You only see what you can feel The earth and sky don’t care what’s real So who are you, who are you on this day For once only you, only you can say And will you choose another name Tell me what has changed and what’s the same

Tereza 04:08
Here’s all I have for you She’ll be what I can’t do Hold my love against your heart Her embrace will press it closer I packed a fever and my life And waited hopeful at your door Now inside I wait alone I watch the clock I watch the phone Call me Tereza Say my name and hold me tight Say Tereza It’s fragile but it’s right Around the room my photos strung I stare down foreshortened guns And her eyes are everywhere The shine upon her greyscale hair Call me Tereza Say my name and hold me tight Say Tereza It’s fragile but it’s right
6.
There’s something about you That’s changing my mind There’s something about you That’s proving me wrong… My life was all ablaze You stormed out of the haze The hills are green again And the skies are blue As numb as we’ve become It’s pandemonium This place is sane again And it’s all because of you There’s something about you That’s changing my mind There’s something about you That’s proving me wrong… When all we read are lies There’s truth in your eyes You closed the book and then You opened up the door More fearless than you know You let the music flow When the world conspires I’ll never want for more
7.
You might think you’re in the same place The truth is we hurtle through space It looks familiar, I see your confusion Coordinates reveal the illusion You’re in for a shock ‘cause everything’s gone There’s only that feeling you get from a song There’s a hint of a mood and a canceled perfume But none of the life that once filled the room Have a seat, yes it’s the same chair But what you breathe, it’s not the same air Can’t you feel you’ve never been here before You’ve never really walked twice on the same floor We’re in for a long walk back to the car Don’t ask me about them, I don’t know where they are They used to be here, their shadows remain Yeah everything’s gone but so is the pain
8.
Outside 05:28
She said What if the world were just a TV show? And all your friends were never real? And strangers watch you every night, The only ones who really care how you feel? And the houses are just facades And even on your street If you open up the wrong door An empty field is where it leads I’ll see you on the outside Or maybe I won’t Or should I just stay here And go with the flow? She said I don’t know what to believe Is it love or are you just reading lines? Can you tell me how it ends? The spoilers say I turn out fine I’ll see you on the outside Or maybe I won’t Or should I just stay here And go with the flow?
9.
Anonymous 04:42
I feel so anonymous I’m so lost in all of this And the lights glide over us again and again and again I love everyone I love no one All I know are all these spinning limbs I feel so anonymous I’m so into all of this I’ve left all your promises behind me The pulse and the pressure feel like weather I can’t hide and why would I
