Track Name: Disappear
watch faces pass in frames.
from a second story bed.
I’m just vying for a moment of your time
and hope you're listening.
We both sing a different song,
At the same stage in our lives.
Struggling to wield swords when you’ve only held knives.

all i wanted was a moment of your time.
Instead i’ll disappear.

it must be nice// to be a vision in your head,
a thought you conjure up when it’s convenient.
We’re both caught in frames
of parallel dimensions.
You’re content with lifelessness
While i’m speeding steadfast ahead,
just to escape from it.

all i wanted was a moment of your time.
Instead i’ll just disappear

Bending light but lacking color x2
Bending light to make the mirrors show what you want
In a parallel dimension.
Your tunnel vision is only matched
By your parallel // dimension.
Track Name: Willow
It's too close to call
But when it comes to vain
You’ve always been
And I think you’ll stay the same

I’ll never praise a shallow mind
Invested pride of the wrong kind
Self-deprecating, it’s agitating
To watch you dissipate

Does your neck ache
From looking down
From your glass case ten feet off the ground
Does your neck ache
From looking down
From looking down

Stay far from me
Our thoughts are bred from different minds, different lives

Misery is how you thrive
The difference between a recluse and an open mind
A mindset so toxic
With a sad aesthetic
I don’t want’ any part in it

Don’t want a part of your social scene
Don’t want a part of social scheme
You aren’t the company you keep,
You are the problem

Does your neck ache
From looking down
From your glass case ten feet off the ground
Does your neck break
From looking down
From looking down

Stay far from me
Our thoughts are bred from different minds, different lives
Stay far from me
Don’t want to hear your spiteful cries

Stay away from me
Stay away from me
Stay away from me
Track Name: Always Clouded, Never Clear
Set aside the blinds
That cover the world outside
We'll never see enough in this life
But it's worth a try

You've got a tempered mind
But I'm not far behind
I try to keep my sharp tongue locked up inside
I think about consequences so dire
And I'll find a way to speak eloquently
But for now, I'll stay quiet
I'll stay quiet

I don't wanna remember my time on this earth
Wasting nights watching the world burn
Oh what if we changed our ways

Don't you feel your wonder fade
As you repine, sit in complacency for days
And although you won't, I hope you choose to seek a journey of your own
There's so much more perspective to life that you may never know
But you gravitate to small minds, like a moth to flames
Your head's your home, oh don't you know
Oh don't you know

Why sit in shadows when the sunlight warms your bones
Why does an open mind make you feel alone?
Track Name: Pixelated
Blind leading blind, contemptuous minds.
You can’t look me in the eyes
And say you’re well intentioned, no, I’m not surprised.

You want a music scene
That lives in perfect harmony
But treat us like we’re freaks
A genre anomaly
All that you're becoming,
Is only self-defeating
Preach inclusivity,
But it's really not your thing.

How //do you find the nerve to try, the means to justify
The snide remarks,// the prideful smile?
You never say hello
When you see me out at shows.
It’s arrogance, we know
Insecurities exposed

I had all the crooked puzzle pieces
balled up in my fist,
I didn’t want to admit they wouldn't fit.
Turning away genuine speak,
Will this be your legacy? (x4)

No one else exists in your twinkly fantasy.
No exerted efforts are as valuable as yours,
No expenditure of energy with any worth, or anything

Brotherhood, family
Inflated egos, faked beliefs
A self-serving hierarchy
of Demigod wannabes
[Rotting from the inside
Don't blame the little guys]. (x2)
Track Name: Synapse Fires
And so we meet again.
A cast of doubt, my anger knows no end
It feels so wrong to be proven right
Pity mangled a straighter spine
We cut our words in stone.
and you dared to crack the code.
over and over again,
over and over again.

The hourglass is cracked.
The problems are never ending
life's already gripped my neck,
I'm just shaking to struggle out of it.

it's so much worse on the inside.
it’s so much worse on the inside.

Kill the cancer where it hurts
Kill the cancer at the source,
They wanna wait to operate,
They wanna see how bad it grows.
I just want to be cured,
I just want to feel better.

speed up the tempo now
we’re only dying faster, faster
speed up the tempo now
we’re only dying faster
speed up the tempo now
we’re only dying faster, faster
yeah, pick up the pace now,
we’re only dying faster

i can't face the facts, at the top of my lungs I'm shouting- why?
how did we let it get this bad
i just wanted the upper hand
and how- it feels to be in last place
And you dare to redirect the blame

Kill the cancer where it hurts
Kill the cancer at the source,
Virulent anger like a comet’s tail
Blazing through like a chemical trail
look at all the people
so healthy and pure
I just want to be cured,
I just want to feel better.

The hourglass is cracked
life's already gripped my neck,
I'm breaking my limbs just to struggle out of it.
You’d let me die but you can't stand to hurt anyone
You’ll let the dust settle and then inhale it through your lungs.

i feel my health slipping
but i am filled with hope that the pain will heal
Not gonna walk it off,
I just wanna get some sleep.
Not gonna walk it off,
I just wanna get some sleep again.
Not gonna walk it off,
I just wanna get some sleep again.
Not gonna walk it off,
I just wanna get some sleep again. (x2)
Track Name: Beesly
Oh how it feels to be the one you need.
The salvation to all your fears.
I hoped I’d find a soul to keep, was never sure.

Feel like a God when you look at me.
Lift you up when// you feel weak.
I hold your world in my hands, shaking my bones.

But i'm still crooked and i'm bent,
Despite my good intent.
I shout until my lungs deflate,
Feel you pull away,
I knew it’d be this hard,
To keep you where you are.
Now we’re pedaling backwards

We never choose to feel the way we feel.
Circumstances lead us here.
We only want to find ourselves, in anothers arms.

We always want for things to go our way,
It’s not black and white // it’s shades of gray.
Did you believe me when I said// that I need a clean slate?
Committed acts i’d never do
for a chance at winning you
Took a cheap shot in a second,
Felt rotten for a million more.
Went back on words I preached.
We walked on glass for weeks,
Woke with remorse and grief,
Wish we didn’t have to suffer,
No one else would take this pain,
but if i went back, I’d choose the same
Shed my old life, I want to be new again
I want to be new again.

The fear of losing you is haunting me.
Foolish pride has lead us here.
I fear the day you find yourself, in anothers arms.

My body trembles when you leave.
Before I met you I was asleep.
My body trembles when you leave.
You’re not promised to me, why should you be?

The fear of losing you is haunting me.
Foolish pride has lead us here.
I fear the day you find yourself, in another's arms.
The weight of losing you is crushing me.
Time could harm or it could heal
I always let my temper speak, But it doesn’t speak for me.

Words can't fix what selfish tears.
Hands can’t handle what they break.
When the colors turn red I fear I won’t see you again
I look to tomorrow for the white morning sun
And when the morning wakes our eyes/ and your gaze meets mine
And though we feel unsure of where we are, we both know
You brush the hurt from my eyes and say, “we’re going home"
