Track Name: Lightning Storm
I don't know who you are, you're the spring and sun
And I can't relate, I can't see your true face
and the pills, I threw them away, said I was fine
A few times, it was all a life frontin'
I have become no-one
became no-one


You don't know who I am, I'm a lightning storm and
I can't retrace those lines no, I can't stay in place
Those thoughts I smoked them away said I was done
A few times, it was all a life frontin'
I have become no-one
became no-one

You don't know who I am, I'm a lightning storm
Track Name: Introspection
It's a terrible thing to have to feel pain to know you're alive
It's a beautiful thing to have to feel pain to know you're alive
Been looking for the answers of everything that's gone wrong
Been searching for the solution
Been searching way too long
So I'm breaking all my windows
Let the sound pour out
Mistaking all my signals
This is a cry for help

Introspection's a hobby
Examining your soul
When your seams unravel
You said I was once whole
A perfect little machine
Turned to broken rust
A schematic of perfection
Yellow crumbled dust
So pick up your sad pieces
and pull yourself together
The time you have is limited
Who wants to break forever?

Hey
Pull yourself together

Track Name: Throwaway
What are you to do? You were just following the rules
Took a liking to everyone, including all the fools

Tired of the snow, it's the same: wherever I will go, you won't go.
Pack up all your things. It's so easy to forget all the memories.

All the blood you sweat
and all the things I hide
Lost yourself inside the machine
You threw away your life
tayl
tayl
But at least you tried

What are you to do? You were just following the rules
Track Name: Rain Falls
Took all the time that you needed
Still can't see what you're seeing
Everything's falling in line
Can't understand, understand why

The rain falls the way she does
Everyone is falling in love

There's nothing now that you uphold
You're crawling back the same old hole
There's nothing now that you uphold
The shape of your eyes tells no lies, I know

Took all the times I heard you lie
Broke all your bottles, can't hear my cry
Screams are echoing off the walls
You don't care, that's not my fault

And you act the way you do, you can't make an excuse

tnntyu
ycbtsoh
tnntyu
Your smile was warm but it grows so cold


tnntyu
ycbtsoh
tnntyu
When wrong makes right, it's time to go

The rain falls the way she does
Everyone is falling in love
And you act the way you do
you can't make an excuse

Track Name: Flood
Flood is coming, the waters rise
Too pure to purify
and soon
we'll all be gone

Oceans will cover the plains
the cities lost, submersive graves
and soon
we'll all be gone

It's all gonna get washed away
It's gonna be a brand new day

Seas will swell, rapids rage
Consequences of what we made
Just watch
The levee break

And so we thought that one day
We were going to die in flames
Ironic
It will be rain

iaggwa
igbabnd

We've no choice but to wait
Erasing all of what we've made
Tears on
A windowpane

One last breath, one last play
A futile attempt to belay
the end
of what we've made

Track Name: Willow Trees
Lost my place on the page
Maybe it's from staying up late
Legs twitch and pupils sting
I press it together, it's nothing
So fill the evening with smoke
Cut down your (?)
Find a subtle way to cope
Yeah we've all got some place we need to go

And I've seen better things
Away from crowded cities

Lost my faith in the race
Maybe I won't be save
My spirit's gone, my heart still burns
Got some problems, they're getting worse
So fill your stomach with hope
Anxiety, cut at the throat
The answer's, they'll elope
Yeah we've all got someplace we need to go

And I've seen better things
Away from crowded cities
And I've seen
All my dreams
Sway like willow trees
willow trees
Track Name: Graceful
This graceful world has lost its touch; So quick to fill our pockets, no we can't get enough
But no certainty of change has come
Their lies stack with their bullets and guns

But we've gotta wake up
From the dreams we hide in
The tides they'll shake us awake

This graceless world has lost so much, it's falling apart at the seams
Though we're brothers and sisters, we all chase conflicting dreams

But we've gotta wake up
From the dreams we hide in
the tides they'll shake us awake

Goodbye everyone
I'm flying out to the sea
You'll see me in another life, you'll see me in a dream

But we've gotta wake up
from the dreams we hide in
the tides will shake us awake
Track Name: Waste of Time
Calmly you're approaching him and
surely you are leaving me
Pitiful lies and curious steps and
Undoubtfully you will remember me

I'd open the door and hold your hand
I was just glad that I was your man
Can't believe your eyes, I can't believe that smile
it's as fake as your attitude but it's the least that you could do
and I haven't seen a realist for miles

This turning of age, this molding page
Well it could never get through to you
Like a glass wall you're breaking now
You're poorly built and you will fall down

Why would I waste my time thinking of you?
Why would I waste my time thinking of you?

I know what they say, you know what I want,
I'm sick of all your negative thoughts
Cars and trains are all the same
Thunderstorms and august rain
January freezing chronic pain
I walked you home down the lane
Memories of staying up late
I slept in your bed and woke up to a beautiful face

Why would I waste my time thinking of you?
Why would I waste my time thinking of you?

Brush a shore and ocean coast
Follow my lead, I'll sing you a toast
Grab your shoes and hear your song
All the notes and chords are wrong

Drown my car in the sea, I'll drive my boat up on the streets
Begging you please to hold on tight
My arm's steady
Speak three words in a swarm
I haven't seen you like this before
Calmly glance we had our chance

Why would I waste my time thinking of you?
Why would I waste my time thinking of you?
Track Name: Think Before
Think before you react
Maybe I can relax
You know I won't

Time will swallow us whole
Inside her fragile shell
We all wait alone

Singing songs just to get along
Scream at the gods in the sky, now what is the point
When they know, when they know that you are wrong all the time?

You're Nervous
You're judgment's ill
Your dreams scare you still
The dusk has come

With the night, its endless sky
Old shadows are standing by
You know you can't hide

I've been there I've seen all the times you tried
to block out the sun when it ruins your sight
just pull the pieces together, just make it right

And cut
into my spine
take away
all my pride
The time here is lost
The moments that willow down
can't hear can't hear the clouds as they roll
on by

I've been there, I've seen all the times you cried
Can't sort through the shit when it hits your head, it's alright
I've been there, I've seen all the times you cried.
