Track Name: Brace Brace
Brace Brace

I used to believe in darkened rooms
Wrestling in the shadows
Racing with my monsters
Cause there's honour in a fresh and open wound
In wading through the shallows
And testing my responses.

Now there’s you. I'm done.
Like waking up and blinking off the sun.
No-one, had made me reconsider this success.
Cause yes, the morning star burns brighter on its own.
But we overflow.
The hardest part of flying is letting go.

Small scrapes are hidden by the views
The mountains hold our shadows
Until we’re dashed upon them.

Now there’s you. I'm done.
Like waking up and blinking off the sun.
No-one, had made me reconsider this success.
Cause yes, the morning star burns brighter on its own.
But we overflow.
The hardest part of flying is letting go.

And there's so little hope for landing,
But I would rather make a stand,
and take your hand and crash.

Now there’s you. I'm done.
Like waking up and blinking off the sun.
No-one, had made me reconsider this success.
And yes, the morning star burns brighter on its own.
But we know the the hardest part of flying is letting go.

So little hope for landing,
I brace myself to crash.
So little hope for landing...
Track Name: Return
Return

Oceans deep and two more sleeps from home
I pull my car to the right lane.
The stars have dipped their lights and flown
What if I stayed? (I strayed, I stayed)

But there is no word
No glance returned
No soft concern or thought
That warms me like this place.
No coat I've worn
One catch, I'm torn
This house that I'm built for
On my own I'm just water, wire and clay

Queues of people form their ranks to go
They're making thunder in the rain
My bags are weighted, stuffed and thrown
Sometimes I feel that way, this way.

But there is no word
No glance returned
No soft concern or thought
That warms me like this place.
No coat I've worn
One catch, I'm torn
This house that I'm built for
On my own I'm just water, wire and clay.

I'm water, wire and clay.

In the air there's a whisper of rain
But it's low in the sky and I'm safe
In the days when my memories run grey
I’ll have dreams of return to sustain.

But there is no word
No glance returned
No soft concern or thought
That warms me like this place.
No coat I've worn
One catch, I'm torn
This house that I'm built for
On my own I'm just water, wire and clay

I'm water, wire and clay
Track Name: Spark
Spark

I wish I had all the answers
To the questions that weigh in your dark
They wait in the cold
Til the doubt takes its hold
then burst like the flame from a spark

As you are
As you are

I wish you'd been born a dancer
And had all the best steps in your mind
But you're quick of pace
And have natural grace
You'll learn to move in your own time

As you are
As you are
As you are
As you are

I know you think warmth is a cancer
And it's best to stand cold and apart
But out on the breeze
Between oaks and the seas
You'll find you're just fine as you are.

As you are
As you are
As you are
As you are
Track Name: No Time
No Time

I turn from sunlit halls
Where the pictures of us get smaller and fade
Lost smiles in those missed calls
Hit my fist on a wall,
Let stone convey

That there's no time
Like when there's no time
So take it while you have it
Cause there's no time
Like when there's no time
So reach right out and grab it

Did you wish I'd offered my hand?
Was I mist on the falls or a rock in the waves?
The chance to was mine and again
What's some space between friends
This late in the day?

Cause there's no time
Like when there's no time
So take it while you have it
Cause there's no time
Like when there's no time
So reach right out and grab it
Track Name: Late Night Drive
Late Night Drive

I feel the dark
It prowls my street
It whispers in
And pulls my feet
So I drive to find some comfort on the breeze
To go somewhere

I'm out of air
I'm out til dawn
I'm out to find the reasons why my days run long
Cause there's comfort behind windows in a storm
But I'd rather have the lightning keep me warm

It's long past time to leave
I'm hating this view
You're water when I breathe
I doubt I'll miss you
A late night drive just shows
It's only me and endless arrows in the road

I'll cut my hair, I'll cut my name
I'll cut out looking for somebody else to blame
Cause the maps are old and rotten, ripped and torn
And I won't be taken by the paths they've worn

It's long past time to leave
I'm hating this view
You're water when I breathe
I doubt I'll miss you
A late night drive just shows
It's only me and endless arrows in the road

I'll brake for nothing
I'll brake for nothing
Track Name: Screamager
Screamager

A face like this won't break any hearts
And thinking like that won't make any friends

Screw that
Forget about that
I don't want to think about anything like that

Screw that
Forget about that
I don't want to know about anything like that

I've got nothing to do, but hang around and get screwed up on you
I've got nothing to do, but hang around and get screwed up on you

Your beauty makes me feel alone
I look inside but no one's home

Screw that
Forget about that
I don't want to think about anything like that

Screw that
Forget about that
I don't want to know about anything like that

I've got nothing to do, but hang around and get screwed up on you
I've got nothing to do, but hang around and get screwed up on you

I've got nothing to do, but hang around and get screwed up on you
I've got nothing to do, but hang around and get screwed up on you
I've got nothing to do, but hang around and get screwed up on you
I've got nothing to do, but hang around and get screwed up on you

But get screwed up on you
But get screwed up on you
Track Name: Alone (it's not so bad)
Alone (it's not so bad)

It's not so bad alone
My fridge makes a noise that lets me know I'm home
The milk in my bones
Says this isn't the darkest night I've known

I know that this isn't the darkest night I've known

I'd walk some miles to sleep
But there's nowhere to run and no lights on my street
And my shoe with the stone
Says this isn't the darkest night I've known

I know that this isn't the darkest night I've known
I know that this isn't the darkest night I've known

And this is where'll I'll lie, this whole night
The fire and the sigh, threw no light
And this is where I'll hide
And this is where I'll hide

It's not so bad alone
The crack in my wall let's me know I've grown
'Cause stronger winds have blown
And this isn't the darkest night I've known

I know that this isn't the darkest night I've known
I know that this isn't the darkest night I've known

And this is where'll I'll lie, this whole night
The fire and the sigh, threw no light
And this is where I'll hide
And this is where I'll hide

In silence, I'm silent
Rewriting untitleds
Half-light it burns brighter
In silence, I'll lie

And this is where'll I'll lie, this whole night
The fire and the sigh, threw no light
And this is where I'll hide
And this is where I'll hide
Track Name: Falls To Me
Falls To Me

On days you're dazed by storms ahead
When long rain fills your mind with dread
Well time may crawl
But you'll stand tall
Saying now it falls to me

On days your eyes can't look around
Ashamed of times you tripped and stayed down
Well you'll still crawl,
til standing up's no work at all
Saying now it falls to me

Cause it's your day
And it's your day
And it's your day
And it's your day
(Let it go, take it slow, hold on to the things you know)

And if I fade to brick or stone
Some warmth remains because I know
That it's your day

That it's your day
And it's your day
And it's your day
And it's your day
