Track Name: String By String
No one said this would be easy
An eternity spent forging ties
Only to see them crumble away
Painlessly, string by string

And the tears we shed meant nothing

Forget everything you know,
Wipe the memory clean,
Fill the senses with novelty,
Only to start again

And the tears we shed meant nothing
And the lives we’ve led meant nothing
This is the curse of the free mind
Always searching for the one thing it cannot have

If I could only live in a single space,
Never thinking how
It could be different in another place,
A product of my fantasy

And the tears we shed meant nothing
And the lives we’ve led meant nothing
This is the curse of the free mind
Always searching for the one thing it cannot have
Track Name: Branches
Off in the distance a song fades away
Its broken melody resonates
As the skies wash over the earth
Words slide off these pages

Conjuring up a wild scenery
Drifting slowly into the ground
A drop was all we’d need to feel alive
Remember when you said you were scared?

There is nothing left to fear
These thoughts are all that you can hear
Let the wind grace you
Remember how we used to be?

Well I’m still caught in the branches
Waiting for this storm to pass
And for the tide to pour over these clouds
Should you ever find the time,

I’ll be that glance that you throw back
When you feel so alone
I’ll be that glance that you throw back
When you feel so alone

There is nothing left to fear
These thoughts are all that you can hear
Let the wind grace you
Remember how we used to be?

I’m still here
I’m still here
Track Name: Just This Once
You were a spark in the dark
A mark left deep in the ground
As the glass fell right out
Of the tips of my worn-out fingers

Your colours stirred in the light
It’s meaningless, I won’t be found
So I’ll down another empty night,
Bottle up another useless fight with myself

Soon enough your hands are bound
Your lips are sealed, the secret tied around
Your neck, will stay with you
Just this once
Just this once

And you were just one more flare
Another signal gone astray, but I’ll stay
Bearing no arms by my side, for this time,
This cursed ship might change its course

Soon enough your hands are bound
Your lips are sealed, the secret tied around
Your neck, will stay with you
Just this once
Just this once
Track Name: Tightrope
Bring your head to the wall
Pull your teeth and force a smile
This ain’t anything that pills could fix
Fading red and white
To paint upon this canvas
A sound is born and is silenced
It was once here, can you feel it?
Its presence lingers in the air

You’re walking down a tightrope
But the slack is catching up to you

Tear apart what you've made
Leave it blank and recompose
And cloud your thoughts
As you leave another open wound

There is something here,
Can you feel it?
If I could close my eyes
Let it come near
Don’t think about it,
You will just ruin it all

You’re walking down a tightrope
But the slack is catching up to you

We’re on short supply here
Lift your head and look around
Nothing here has changed.
Oh my god,
This is the hardest thing
You’ve ever had to do
Track Name: Riverbed
Not too long ago, it seemed
As though our paths were forged
Fused together under unequal trends
Rowing on at different speeds
But always the same stream
Do you remember?

Leave me in the water,
Let me sleep away the time
Tucked away under the river bed
Let me forget it all.
I don’t want to think about the times we had
The memories are holding me back

How is everyone else doing here
Have they made it out to the other side?
Are they just as lonely as I am?
Or have they found
Another soul to share the struggle?

Leave me in the water,
Let me sleep away the time
Tucked away under the river bed
Let me forget it all.
I don’t want to think about the times we had
The memories are holding me back

How can I ever know
If this channel leads to the sea?
And when I arrive, will everybody be there?
Or is this really how alone we’ll always feel?

Leave me in the water,
Let me sleep away the time
Tucked away under the river bed
Let me forget it all.
I don’t want to think about the times we had
The memories are holding me back

An unseen bend in the tracks
Where we all lost one another
How will I ever know?
Leave me down here in the river
