Void 04:56
I feel it closer than the demon on my back I feel you closer than tomorrow But it slips the silver through the slackened hand And It flows where I can’t follow So am I alone, or just blind? Is there a point to having these eyes? All that they see are the things That don’t make me want to sing anymore Shut it up with a smile And the ghost of a God every once in a while Oh my God did you go From this old ghost story? Berated lately, I’ve become accustomed to my pride: And It’s a throne for none that listen And I shoot the breeze to ease the doubt within my eyes But you’re the target that I’m missing There is a void within humanity The void of Providence and pleasure We stake our claim to this insanity: That all we want is in the latter Put it down So am I alone, or just blind? Is there a point to having these eyes? All that they see are the things That don’t make me want to sing anymore Shut it up with a smile And the ghost of a God every once in a while Oh my God did you go From this old ghost story? But I see you closer than the mirror in my mind I feel it closer than my failure And I’m empty, I’m empty, oh I am I’m sick of being my own savior

Fade 05:11
Who do you think you are? Who do you believe? When despair on carousels is running round our needs? Shielded from the violence, silenced on your phone I’m Keeping all at arm’s length. Think I’ll stay at home It’s nothing for us. It’s all that I erase So we’ll ignore it till we fade away Communion wants to haunt me and whispers round the walls So we just learned evasion and withering withdrawals Image and perception, when honored on their own Are blurring masterpieces that now we’ll never know They’re nothing for us. It’s all that we erase So we’ll ignore it till we fade away It’s nothing for us, it’s all that I erase So we’ll just ignore it until we, Nothing for us, It’s all that I erase So we’ll just, we’ll just ignore it baby Until we fade away

Pull 04:45
What light through yonder window breaks? Idealist image of my fate Oh sun and moon and God do swoon to see her face Until I find another just as well to fill her place In your sentimental stomach you feel the steady pull So you’ll take your fill of beauty but you’ll never be made full The scales tip and lean to me; the realist instinct of retreat Cause my love for you is half a truth surrounded by myself Your body bears the image of my maker and my hell She pulls me under my own façade At my sentimental summit I feel the steady pull Into a lusting prone to plummet to the worst inside my soul Vicarious narcissism is the new romance Cause if it looks good and it feels good we don’t mind the circumstance and lies It’s the only fun we have, the only meaning in our heads The only thing that ever satiates the suction of our selves But when two black holes embrace what is the fate that they will face? And so I love like nothing mattered but the feeling guaranteed to go away She pulls me under my own façade

Gone 04:28
Did it break your heart? When you lost your love Did you shake your fist at God above? Ask me for the truth, I gave it to a friend And buried it with notions of a graceful dead end And It feels so strange to be here It feels so strange to know What's happening in your heart now I'll go, I'll go and do away with my notions I'll go, I'll go if you want me gone If you want me gone Well you're looking pretty small with your feet above your head Did you know that life would be found in death? Oh no, don’t ask me for the truth, cause I gave it to my friend And then he buried it with notions, oh we buried it with him. And It feels so strange to be here It feels so strange to know What's happening in your heart right now So I'll go, I'll go and do away with my notions I'll go, I'll go if you want me gone If you want me gone It feels so strange to be here And It feels so strange to know What's happening in your heart right now I'll go, I'll go and do away with my notions I'll go, I'll go if you want me gone I'll go, I'll go if you want me gone If you want me (gone)

Nothing 01:08
6.
Nowhere 05:07
Defeat taught me everything I know Weakness is a wound I won’t outgrow Failure is the clock I am wound to But this ticking time bomb won’t do what it’s bound to Cause I’m going nowhere But you’re calling me there Lonely is a self-proclaiming preacher Who was I to make me your measure? Able as an atheistic Jesus All my temples crumble into pieces Cause I’m going nowhere But you’re calling me there If scaring the hell out of me Is letting heaven in Then may I be terrified By my own emptiness Cause I’m going nowhere But you’re calling me there

Push 04:23
So we move against the earth So we beat against our veins And we cover all our worth In the garments of our pain As we plough along the soil Push against the leaden sky Fraught with failure is our toil Till the day the seed will die So hold my hand, sure and steady as you can Where I go pulses still and sleep is slow Hold my hand, sure and steady as you can Where I go pulses still and sleep is slow But when we wake again we’ll know I heard it once in brittle words Of everything made new and whole So I’ll keep tilling till I’ve learned Our hope is growing ‘neath the cold But I just feel so cold Hold my hand, sure and steady as you can Where I go pulses still and sleep is slow Hold my hand, sure and steady as you can Where I go pulses still and sleep is slow But when we wake again we’ll know
8.
Back 03:20
If there’s something that you want If there's something that you need You know I’m breaking at the thought Break my bones and enemies But you never never get back Anything you need But you'll never never get back Everything you need If there’s something that you see If there’s something that you know You know I’m breaking at the seams Oh you know I’m losing all control But you never never get back Anything you need But you're never gonna get back Everything you need You'll never get it No you'll never get back what you need now No you're never gonna get back what you need now But you never gonna get back Anything you need No you're never gonna get back Everything you need

Rise 04:57
Oh I never saw it coming Oh I never saw it coming Blades of grass were knives beneath our feet And ghosts were all we ever seemed to be But brightly came our memories to meet these unaware and unforgiving feelings I always thought that heaven would be mine Now maybe it’s not quite that black and white Cause I’ve always loved the idea of love Much more than the reality that comes Oh I never saw it coming Oh I never saw it coming Now I can’t help this feeling as I rise That maybe heaven’s higher than the sky And maybe there’s no place for you and I Till I’m okay with giving up the fight Oh I'm giving up And I never saw it coming Oh I never saw it coming I never saw it coming Oh you know, I never saw it No I never saw it coming I never saw it, I never saw it I never saw it, but I’m coming home tonight
10.
Endless lines of houses sit Across this plaid rigid rift Of people living counterfeited lives Lonely little sounds of feet Across these safely lifeless streets No neighbor greets me when I lift my eyes And all I see, are the ways that I cannot make it right So this is how it feels when we whisper you’re not real When your arms are open wide but we will not lift our eyes Oh I'll always want your grace if it comes with a pretty face Oh I'll always need your grace even if you’re only empty space My love we linger much too long By windows with the curtains drawn Imagining we’re on the other side But who are we that we could know That we could be loved even so But fear would leave the best of us behind And all we see, are the ways that we cannot make it right And all I see, is the distance between you and I So this is how it feels when we whisper you’re not real When your arms are open wide but we will not lift our eyes Oh we'll always want your grace if it comes with a pretty face Oh and I'll always need your grace even if you’re only empty space
